Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

O Jawahar

Write a hundred
A thousand
Ten thousand lines ,
To only find
A Picasso of his image
Enigmatic ,
Like the cosmos
Manifesting in
A thousand ,
Ten thousand ,
A million
Moods :

To sometimes
Rise above
The teeming multitudes ,
Lost to his own self ;
But always finding
In narrow , winding ,
Lanes of love
A way
To the hearts
Of his countrymen ;
And trying
Not to live in vain ,
This Apostle
This voice from beyond
The stellar wind ,
O Jawahar
Sayonara ,
Al Vida ,
Jai Hind !
