Made In India

Made In India

To live and die in a world of a teacher 
And the taught was his solitary wish.
Plundered every treasury in all his books
Lavishly enriching his soul forever thirsty.

An aeronautical engineer
Lost being a pilot
Voted as President
To rule over every pilot.

Son of a boatman distributing newspapers
Simple living with half a dozen clothing
In the looming closets
Of his erstwhile Presidential chair.

Sleep slept over to follow his dream
To make India a super world power
The Missile Man shot far above the clouds
The world saluted Kalam who was Made In India.

Andrea dear, thanks you so much! A P J Kalam is of the rarest breed and this is just a small tribute to this humble man. Love, Balveen
