Jyoti Babu! Jyoti Babu! Jyoti Babu,
Through your political activities, you show your view.
You are my ideal leader,
I am your blind supporter.
Today you have left this vale of tears for ever,
In star-studded political sky, you remain as a star.
In your living time, you trod everywhere,
Even in India, you were the supreme political sheer.
you were not the king, but the king maker,
your political intelligence made you the hero of the hour.
You were the Chauvinist,
Truly, you were the real communist.
Your critic made you as a failure in every aspect,
You were the most successful man in retrospect.
Criticism makes a mam famous,
To the world, you are the genius.
Once the throne of Delhi came to your close,
Some of your party men oppose.
You did nothing only saying, 'Historical Blunder'
All and sundry your true admirer.
None can surpass your record as a ruler,
You are the Mother India's longest-term chief minister.
You are the Venus in guinness book with importance,
Other political leaders do nothing only glance.
Even the Chief of IMF came to meet you,
Throughout your life, you struck to your political view.
Tomorrow the World moves in its own way,
In 2011, Bengal may be in its sway,
Your successors will remember you as a leader of leaders,
Through my verse, I spread your activities to the future readers.
(I dedicate this poem to the veteran communist and longest term elective leader of the world-Jyoti Basu the Chief Minister of West Bengal, one of the states of India.)
