Where Are You Smiling, O Old Man? (A Tribute To The Father of The Nation)

Where are you smiling toothlessly,
So simply, sinlessly
Without anything in your heart
So plainly,
Where you, Gandhi?

Frail in appearance, simple in bearing,
Clad in a dhoti and kurta
And with a lathi,
Where are you striding, Gandhi?

The specs old and round
And you looking through,
Having the visions of rebuilding, reconstructing,
Having the visions of life and the world.
