TO MRS. INDIRA GANDHI
Blest be O Indira Gandhi,
The leader of Congress Party.
In you the country people see
Pure milk of human sympathy.
How so beautiful a flower
Of Adam and Eve’s fair bower!
You have reached the highest tower
Of great fame, glory and power.
A worthy leader of our land!
The people deem you as their friend.
You remain ready to extend
In time of need your helping hand.
A champion of socialism;
A hater of communalism;
A captain of secularism;
A heart loving many an ism.
You do not feel afraid at all;
You remain great in rise or fall;
You are strong as the iron wall;
You deserve the respect of all.
A great reader of human face;
A sound justice in every case;
A great glory of human race;
A modern lady full of grace.
Boastfulness does never touch you;
You make the plans ever anew.
Patriotism takes pride in you;
You have a place which is your due.
A Director of the world’s screen!
You are far better than a queen.
May God give you life long and green
To shape the dreams Gandhi had seen!
This poem was composed and sent to Mrs. Indira Gandhi on her birthday, the 19th of November,1983, which she acknowledged with thanks.
Ah! Now she is dead;
Tear-drops my eyes shed.
I hope her dear son
Shall shine like the sun.
