WE REMEMBER





 At Madame Tussaud's 
           London




SHE was a woman of substance,
 She always knew her stance 
  Handled the world correctly
  Never left anything to chance.

 No favours ever granted
 No favours did she ask,
 She made the world notice
 And sit up with a Gasp!!!

Put India on the world map
Brought nations to salute
Had she lived a little more
In our own pot, we wouldn't have stewed !

She knew how to handle
Her prodigal countrymen,
OH! only if she would have lived
We'd have reached ,that golden bend
Where !!
We would not have borrowed
Instead we would have lent

SHE was Indira Gandhi 
The woman of substance

  1. Lovely! I couldnt agree more. My father always quotes one of her favourite lines in Bengali which became the motto of a generation. She said " Aashoon amra kaje lege jayi" meaning. come let us get to work. I remember these words whenever I am faced with obstacles. Work is the only worship.
