A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Our Last Respects
Abdul Kalam, ex-president of India,
Had claimed up his lofty ladder himself
By his dedication and humaneness,
Not by money or political power.
But for he being a Muslim Statesman,
He might not have been chosen for the post
Of President of India by the B.J.P,
That silenced the National Congress’ voice.
He enhanced the post he was elected to.
He was the first Bharat Ratna of India
To become the President of India.
After that he grew equal to a Saint.
The good that he did will not be interred
With his bones in the soil of Rameshwaram,
But will float in the air to inspire the people
Across the world, crossing barriers.
One’s mother, father and the teacher
Only can mould a child to become good.
They must be role models to the children.
Heeding this advice of him, let us pray.
(Rameshwaram a holy place of the Hindus, an island, is the his birth place)
