Flames of No More

Mediocre. The world settles for it. We settle too sometimes, But not you. You are on fire. You are THE fire! The fire that lights those who’d lost, Lost their way in the sea of Mediocrity. Your Flames, Your Roar, Screaming out to us! “Reach for the stars.” “Climb”, “Never settle!” This is my promise. I will not! I will never settle! Your flames carry on. Your roar resonates with my soul. One day, I too will roar. My flames will burn brighter and hotter. On this day, I know you will be watching. You will see how I see, What you saw in me. I will see their potential, Their gladness of no more. Mediocrity is now dead. Your flames - to me, to them, and beyond. “I am not here to make mediocre engineers!” - Dr. Bharat Joshi Rest In Peace, knowing your flames carry on!
