Happy Birthday Arvind!


I deeply desire to fly
To a far off fairy snow land
That floats on inspiring rich blues of Baltic
A Colorfully cute merry land of forget-me-not
Where wind Chants while blowing undisturbed
The Nightingales sing Puriya Dhanashri to charm
Zeus and Hera, seated to grace
And glorify the beauty of Birthday celebrations

The fragrance of Punjabi Thali heartily greets
And Indian Ice creams in saffron
Mouth watering Chocolate cream cakes
Ripened fruits, Jalebis and desserts
Smile at everyone broadly
On a pleasant Sunny day
A special Twenty-fifth July day
Most remembered in an unique way

This heavenly celebration waits
For someone taller than the Sun in deeds
His love is much deeper than all oceans
Ever ready to serve, spreading both hands
Gifted with strength to design marvelous structures
Gentle smile, generosity and devotion-his hymns
Lovely eye of all surrounded by swarm of friends
It is surely an angel, whose birthday today,
Hurray! Happy Birthday Arvind, happy birthday
Flowers shower upon you!
