Salam Kalam - Poem by Noojilla Srinivas

A man of Character impeccable,
A soul with a spirit indomitable,
A Source of Knowledge invaluable,
An Icon of Kindness irreplaceable!

A beacon to the beaming, adoring youth,
A builder of satellites strong and smooth,
A bearer of hope and love that soothe,
A believer of values and ultimate Truth!

A symbol of humble and simple living,
A winner in the path that is ever-striving,
A Patriot who made the ‘Buddha Smiling’,
A leader who made his follower the King!

A son who made his mother-land proud,
A teacher who taught us to dream aloud,
A guide who always the right path showed,
A true Citizen of our country beloved!

A Paper-boy turned People’s President,
A Missile-man and Scientist prudent,
A dreamer of India, strong, self-reliant,
A visionary of the world, peaceful, radiant!

To India, he gave the atomic-arm,
The ‘Jewel of India’ in people’s realm,
“Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam”,
The world bows to him and hails ‘Salam’!

    Beautiful tribute to an icon of monumental proportion, an inspirational leader that left foot prints that treads the path way of universal brotherhood. An insightful piece of poetry, well articulated and elegantly penned in good rhyme scheme with conviction. Thanks for sharing Noojilla. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
