-Karan Singh Bora, 1st Year, EE
The long walk has come to an end,
successful at last.
But with many turns, many a bends,
like a ship in a storm, that’s cast.
The sun has set,
the world seems to diminish;
with the soul gone,
the body appears to perish.
Many things he taught,
a whole nation to peace he brought.
In the darkest hour,
when his land was overcome by selfish desire for power,
he banished the difference between blacks and whites,
discarding the long-standing disputes, conflicts, and fights.
For all his people who wept,
His promises to them he kept,
those who were oppressed by the whites
hungry in their land, denied of their rights,
for them, he stood firm and tall
to uphold their rights, he took the fall.
He was the face of the struggle,
the answer to the prayer,
the glimmering hope
for the people in absolute despair.
He was the champion of justice,
the ultimate keeper of peace,
the best man that ever was; or ever will be,
remembered for doing the impossible,
may he always rest in peace.
