A countryside boy,
Rockets were his toy.
Project director of SLV-III in ISRO,
To his dreams, he never said NO.
Brought India to the levels of success,
He was a genius and no less than a bless.
Invented first missile for the nation,
Worked in DRDO with full dedication.
Dreams are those which do not let us sleep,
He had knowledge very deep.
“Ignited Minds” he gave us,
Curious about Aerospace Engineering to discuss.
The “People’s President,
“Funny guy! Are you doing well?” were his words in the end.
Left the global leader us in grief,
On 27th July 2015, he made us turn over a new leaf.
Every leaf, every tree, every stone, and the whole Earth,
Praise this great man’s birth.
