Remembering Former PM Atalji: A Dignified Leader, True Statesman And The Poet
“Maut ki umra kya do pal bhi nahi, Jindagi-silsila, Aaj kal ki nahi, Mai ji bhar jiya, Mai man se marun, Lautkar aaunga, kooch se kyon daru? Tu dabe paon, chori-chipe se na aa, Samne war kar, phir mujhe aajma, Maut se bekhabar, Jindagi ka safar, Shaam hui surmayi, Raat bansi ka swar” The poet who penned these thought-provoking and inspirational lines is no more. Today, India lost its great son and Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji, whose demise marks the end of an era. But his vision for a strong and modern India and his heart touching poetry will live forever in the hearts and minds of the millions of the people across the country.
It is a profound grief to know about the passing away of our beloved Vajpayeeji. His demise is an irreparable loss to the entire country. A Bharat Ratna, poet, writer, outstanding orator, and a charismatic leader, Atalji was often loved, respected and admired by the people around the country. He was a true statesman, great visionary and a dignified political leader in Indian politics.
As a PM, he started many reformative programmes for the modernisation of India. He laid down the foundation of Delhi Metro Rail. He also implemented many reforms for the welfare of the common man of this country. He was a man of peace but also wanted to make India a stronger country and thus conducted Pokharan Nuclear test. He lived for the nation and dedicated his entire life to the service of the nation and its people.
He used his wit to disarm his opposition and he is also known for his powerful oratory and poetry. Even his opposition had the regard for him for the way he conducted himself in the political world for such a long time. People will always remember him for his sharp intellect, outstanding wit and his contribution to the development of the nation. His thoughts, poems, foresight would always inspire and guide the people of this country. R.I.P. Atalji.
