Atal Bihari Vajpayee: 10 profound lines from his poems

New Delhi : Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was among one of the finest leaders of politics India has ever got. But, apart from that, he was also a celebrated poet of all times.

Here are 10 profound lines from his poems:

1: It’s dark in the middle of the day

The sun is defeated by its shadow

Squeeze the oil from your soul

and light the wick,

Come let’s light a lamp again!

2: My Lord,

Never let me climb so high

That I am unable to embrace another stranger,

Deliver me ever from such arrogance!

3: In a deal not so profitable,

All I received were a couple of days

Should I count each moment;

Or just spend it every way?

Which path should I follow?

4: Why shouldn’t I live every moment to the fullest?

Why shouldn’t I admire the beauty in every fragment?

5: The cycle of being and not being

Will continue till eternity,

So will our illusion

That we are, we will be.

6: Everything is at stake, there’s no option to stop now

We can break at this point, but we cannot bend now!


8: What is the age of death? Not even a couple of moments

Life is a progression, it’s not a matter of a day or two!

9: Let the adversities strike,

Let there be catastrophes dire

Let there be embers under our soles,

Let it shower flare,

With that fire in our hands,

Smiling, we have to burn

We have to move forward, together!

10: I am able to see myself

From the eyes of others,

I am neither silent, nor am I singing!
