There are two kinds of people in the world – one kind is known for their remarkable words and one kind is known for their work. Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee belonged to both parts of the world – a man who was known for his work and his way with words.In the memory of this visionary man who gave the world some of the classic poetic masterpieces , his inspiring quotes and poems that will forever stay with us….
“A battle with death!
What a battle it will be! I had no plans to take her on; we had not agreed to meet at that curve,
Yet there she stood, blocking my path
Appearing larger than life. How long does death last? A moment, perhaps two —
Life is a sequence, beyond today and tomorrow.
I have lived to the full, I will die as I choose, I will return, I have no fear of letting go. So, do not come by stealth, and take me by surprise,
Come, test me, and meet me head on.
Careless of death, life’s journey unfolds.
Evenings sketched with make-ups, nights smooth as the flute’s notes.
I do not say there was no pain; there were sorrows, of my own and of this world.”
Rest in Peace Sir !!!
