Not Much - Poem by Suhail Kakorvi

Salim looked happy go lucky
With dexterity and alacrity
Must be fourteen years of age
Son of a physician and a sage
In English medium school he studies
Interested in histories of the countries
My book, collection of poems, I gifted,
To his father, praises he read and shed
He summoned Salim to see the book
I asked his interest in poetry reply shook
Me, was 'not much', he said innocently
Hearing that departed I had the glee
But on a poem about Kalam- a Gem of India
He riveted eyes applauded tenderly the idea
Not much he surely said about poetry
But if poetry contains his very liking history
Not much changes into a pleasant much
Yes it is magic of poetry-expression such
Poetry has power in plenty to move minds
But diversified it should be if one finds
That changed 'not much' of Salim released,
Light of hope for future of book, I was pleased
Salim now I must bless and pray for you
Flourish in life may you and my poetry too- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The famous physician of Lucknow and Professor in prestigious KGMU Dr. Kausar Usman is my very intimate friend. He was supposed to be in the release function of my book ‘Effulgence’ collections of my poems took place at Literature Carnival at Lucknow on 28th of November but due to an important meeting he missed the occasion so it was incumbent upon me to present the book to him at his residence. I went with Sheikh Asad Aamir Mustafavi who remained in his serious illness under his treatment and recovered got new life. Dr. Kausar Usman after reading certain poem called his son Salim who is studying in Class-VIII to show the book to him who denied likeness for poetry but suddenly his eyes were fixed upon a poem on Bharat Ratna Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and all at once he praised the poem and perhaps changed his opinion about poetry and that gave me a hint of the success of the book as a child of this age found something impressive in the book. Tauseef Siddiqui who has uploaded this pic on facebook has also got very notable experiences from Dr. Kausar Usman as he treated his father well who is a patient of diabetes and now his sugar is on normal limits. That shows how he has got command over the subject and knows how to apply his knowledge. I have written when I presented the book that he knows and possesses the oblivious antidotes for all sorts of agonies and so share this picture with my facebook friends.The poem is about him and his son
