At the age of 93, on August 16 his soul was taken away from us, may he Rest in Peace in heaven. But as said it’s the body that dies not your name, your work or your memories. He have led India to a greater success, a man with no heaters. Some people only know him for his work as politician but he was also a good poet. His poems were simple, his selection of words were extraordinary. Here let’s get a glance of some of his poem.
Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s Poem: Maut se than gayi!
Maut se than gyi!
Jujhne ka mera irada na tha, mod par milenge iska vaada na tha,
Raasta rok kar khadi ho gyi, yun lga zindagi se badi ho gyi.
Maut ki umar kya hai? Do pal bhi nhi, Zindagi silsila, aaj kal ki nhi.
Mai ji bhar jiya, Mai man se maru, lautkar aunga, kooch se kyu daru
Tu dabe paun, chori chipe se na aa, Saamne se waar kar phir mujhe aazma,
Maut se bekhabar, Zindagi ka safar, sham har surmai, raat bansi ka swar.
Baat aise nhi ki koi gam hi nhi, dard apne-paraye kuch kam bhi nhi.
Pyaar itna paraiyon se mujhko mila, Na apon se se baki hai koi gila.
Har chunauti se do haath maine kiye, Aandhiyon mai jalye hain bujhte diye.
Aaj jhakjhorta tez toofan hai, Naav bhanwaron ki bahoon mai mehmaan hai.
Paar pane ka kaayam magar hausla, dekh tewar toofan ka, tauriyaan tan gayi.
Maut se than gyi!
