malini kadir (17th october / Nagapatinam, a coastal port, Tamilnadu, India NOW RESIDING IN TRICHY)
Thou in your death befitting cremated
I have from the trivial eyes of a loving poet
Watched the proceeding aired live; believed.....
Upon the reverence; befitting an Iconic Nobel laureate!
As thirteen heads of country and state
Payed their last tribute to the great soul.....
Many more continued to arrive..albeit late;
In tuning in; I perhaps missed some crucial call;
Yet the death of a great man who struggled for the apartheid;
Sentenced to prison, never giving up his calling is coffined legend
May his soul rest in peace; knowing his name shall be echoed
By every valley and mountain; his name shall on time's wings transcend
