Hi Parents! My daughter, twelve-year-old Smruthi, has written this poem on the life and value of Hon. Ex-president of India, Late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

I felt I must share my joy with all of you and read your comments on what you felt after reading this poem.
High in our hearts,
Be it in our thoughts,
We’ve lost a wonderful person,
And that’s Kalam, like whom there can be none

Missile Man you are said to be,
Dreaming of another Kalam, I would be
To inspire thoughts, your books are there,
But we dream you to be everywhere

You once fired rockets,
Now your photo is on lockets,
That can be found in every Indian’s pockets.
Your inspiration,
Is our hearts’ lamination

We thank you for being one among us,
You still make us bees that buzz
Whatever you do to tend,
Never do you pretend

I would promise to be
The next Abdul Kalam,
But, never will I forget the salaam
You have entered everyone’s minds
Standing in its heights.


…by Smruthi, Std. VII in PSBB, K.K.Nagar, Chennai.
