    Default A Collection of Poems on Mahatma Gandhi

    the father of the nation




    O, thou, father of the nation,
    We owe you salutation.
    For each and everything that you did;
    For the cause of the nation and freedom's seed;
    For the wheel called 'CHARKHA', the steering of 'SWADESHI';
    For the drive of 'CHALE JAO', to expel 'VIDESHI';
    For the teachings of truth, nonviolence and peace;
    For the messages of cleanliness & patience against tease.
    Guided thou, for listening not , seeing not, speaking not an evil;
    Still one of us only, dared you kill.
    Gone might be you but not your thoughts;
    Forever, they'll inspire, like lustrous spots.
    Therefore, O, thou, father of the nation,
    We owe you salutation;
    With lotuses of hearts of a hundred plus crores;
    From the peak of the Himalayas to the ocean's roars;
    O, thou father of the nation,
    We owe you salutation,
    We owe you salutation.

    The Recipe



    Into a bare handful of bones and skin

    Pour just an ounce or so of flesh and blood;

    Put in a heart loveful as Sea in flood;

    Likewise a mind sea-deep and free from sin,

    Fix on two jumboo ears,... two goo-goo eyes

    Paint on a smile of babe at mother's breast,

    Inclose a soul that caps Himavat's crest;

    And speaks with tongue which honey's sweet defies;

    The "stuffing"? Goat's milk, soya-beans and dates,

    Now, cover to brim with suffering human's years;

    And bake this dish in gaol for one score years

    Take out and garnish it with pariah mates,

    Wrap up in rag, prop up with lithe bamboo

    And serve; The world Redeemer; Our Bapu.

    The Sacrifice



    They did not listen; and he prayed
    That He, the loving Lord of all,
    Who comforth the poor and weak
    And saveth those who sin and fall,
    May lead them to the path of light,
    And teach them how to live in peace;
    Or spare him in his weary age,
    The sight of fratricidal war.
    And then he fasted – and they came
    And prayed to him to eat and live;
    And vowed to be as brothers all.
    And peace and calm was then restored
    In fair Calcutta, and again
    In Delhi, seat of ancient kings.
    But soon again the gathering clouds
    Broke in the north and over the wet;
    And tales of horror shook the land –
    Murder and fire and ravage grim,
    And fury 'gainst the young and old –
    Mother and child and man and maid –
    And deeds of shame more deep than death.
    And then he prayed again that He
    The loving Lord of all the world,
    His erring children spare, and take
    Instead him as a sacrifice –
    So there be peace within the land!
    There was a band of fiery men,
    Who thought that he, the best of all
    The Hindus had, by words of peace
    Wrought weakness in their fainting hearts,
    And given to those intent on war
    Across the border, cause to gloat
    In triumph o’er their hideous deeds.
    And so they vowed that he should die –
    That there be peace within the and.
    And one of them in secret came,
    And mingled with the waiting crowd;
    And as this man of God approached
    With folded palms to join in prayer –
    Advanced, knelt, kissed his feet–and then,
    Ere any arm could interpose,
    Lifted his hand and shot him through
    Thrice . . . . .

    The Night Of Nights
    They gathered round him where he lay
    Upon a bed of dewy flowers :
    A smile upon his lips did play,
    His eyes were closed, as one should say
    It was a sleep of dreamless hours.
    The anguish and the pain were gone;
    The light of peace upon him shone.
    And some did sigh and some did
    And there were some who stood apart;
    There is a grief for words too deep –
    A sorrow that can only creep
    In silence of a broken heart.
    And then some men and maidens sang;
    In solemn tones echoes rang :
    O Lord of Raghus, Raja Ram!
    Saviour of sinners, Sita Ram!
    Ishvara, Allah are thy names
    Chanted in many a holy psalm.

    Father Of The Nation



    His heart was full of love
    Towards all human beings
    Himself, he was truth incarnate
    And gentle like a dove.
    He travelled East and West
    But what was his quest
    It was for the country's sake
    It was for the country's best.
    He freed our country from the foreign yoke
    In a non-violent way
    And gave his life for the country's sake
    Facing the bullet of astray.
    Hail to the Bapuji
    Hail, father of all my country men
    You have left us a great legacy
    Of truth and sharing with everyone.
    You look so simple at the spinning wheel
    yet glory of labour to us you have taught
    To the teeming hungry millions
    Hope you have brought.
    Your noble pain we shall tread
    And strive to keep our country free
    From bare and selfish thoughts
    And any kind of slavery.

    Mahatma Gandhi



    MANY MANY YEARS AGO,
    A MAN WITH A SMALL BUILT,
    HUMBLE, KIND AND GENEROUS
    AN ABLE LAWYER BY PROFESSION,
    THREW AWAY THE COMFORTS OF LIFE; AND
    MADE SIMPLE LIVING HIS LIFE’S MOTTO
    A WHITE “DHOTI” WAS ALL THAT HE WORE
    GREAT BELOVED SON OF INDIA
    AND THE PEOPLE CALL HIM “MAHATMA”.
    NEVER DID HE REST IN PEACE
    DARED THE BRITISH WITH NON-VIOLENCE
    HE HELP THE POOR AND THE NEEDY; AND
    INSTILLED IN US PRIDE AND SELF RESPECT
    BROTHERHOOD WAS HIS SERMON
    AND AFFECTION FOR THE MASSES HIS HALLMARK
    PASSIONATELY HE STRUGGLED FOR OUR FREEDOM; AND
    UNITED US TO BE A PROUD INDIAN NATION.

    'Bapu' - A True Satyagrahi


    Mahatma the enlightened one
    Won a war without sword or gun
    Born in Saurashtra, a small coastal town
    Which because of him achieved world Renown
    A gentle human with a rare philosophy
    Left his imprint in the annals of History
    He threw back the conquerors across the seas
    By showing them the power of his inner peace
    Ahimsa he followed and brought a bloodless revolution
    Without him our country we couldn't call our Nation
    His message to us is simple and clear
    If we, ignore it, the price we pay is dear
    Discriminate not on creed or caste
    Stand united, be Indian first and last
    Bapu, sometimes I dream if you were in our midst
    Wouldn't you face up to the terrorists,
    Wouldn't you convert him who smuggles and plunders
    Wouldn't you set right our wayward leaders,
    Wouldn't you today save my country
    And restore it to its ultimate Glory???
    Bapu, I dream, a dream, will my dream come true
    Will you be born again
    My country needs you.

    Glory Of India





    O land of Central India!
    Bengal and Bihar fair!
    O Glorious land of Gujarat
    With whom shall I compare?
    Madras! Maharashtra! Saurashtra!
    And Rajputana great!
    You all have done your duty
    In lifting national weight.
    We Hindu! Jain and Muslim!
    Parsi! Jew! Buddhist!
    Christian! Sikh and Brahmin
    Children of the east.
    Purified by Ganges
    Keep your spirits high
    And save your dear old India
    And raise a joyous cry!
    For so proclaim shastra
    Where duty is the goal,
    There victory must be follow
    To crown the glorious soul.
    But if we are divided
    There surely lies our fall
    In Union lies our safety
    As known as each and all.
    Then up United India
    And make your country bright
    In doing one's duty
    There shan't be fear and fright.

    My Father



    Truth was your way of Life.
    Peace, Love and Unity,
    Always close, to your heart.
    Plain, clean simplicity
    Your power and your armor
    Gentleness of Ahimsa,
    Your strength and your weapon
    You won the war of hatred,
    With, pure true affection!
    And smiled away as clear
    As a shiny simple crystal
    I worship thee my father.
    Noble Father of my Nation!
    I gain hope over despair
    When I think of your words
    My dear humble soul
    That said,
    Truth is the only truth.
    I sense love for hatred
    When I see thy elegant smile
    I rejoice amid of sorrow,
    In your picture on the wall.
    Gods do come down to earth,
    And live amongst the mankind.
    I have pride, in witnessing the fact
    I see God in you my father!
    But, realizing the truth
    Hands and heart that
    Cared for me, are not around
    Anymore…
    Makes me cry, at times
    I tremble, in a throbbing fear!
