This is for all the people who have worked hard to make India, the biggest democracy in the world, a better place.
Great men, great deeds,
top ten, sows seeds.
Age creeps upon them,
they shake it off
Someone threatens them
They call it bluff.
They work, till the clock runs out
Yet complete their work, not flout/
They badger others, but no bother
As they will lead you the next day
They guide the Nation.
Prevent it from stray.
They have their own characterized stamp
Yet they work steadily under. the midnight lamp.
It is impossible to prevent the moon
From spinning around the Earth
It, like a maven, does not cessate.
Not many men have
such manifold tastes
as these great men
They, worthy of being in a Paubha,
Not by their knowledge, but aura
Make shubh Sabha.
They are gracious under pressure
Understand quickly with a flick of gesture
They need not be at the top of their
Posts. They may be anybody, anywhere,
All be refined, majestic, courageous
Help the other man spare his dispair
Because they find time for them and me.
They are God-sent messiah.
