Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee भारत रत्न अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी

There are some of his poems or quotations I am going to translate here. But before that I want to let you know that this Great poet has also been a favourite Prime Minister of India. 1999 to 2004 for the full term and before that also he was PM for some time. He was also the First Indian PM who served his full term and was not part of the Indian Congress Party, he won elections as a Bhartiya Janta Party candidate.

He was born in Gwalior, on 25th Dec, 1924 and passed away on 16th Aug, 2018.

He says here that

Whether it is a win or loss, I am not afraid at all

Whatsoever I have got on my way to duty, everything is alright

I will not pray for it, whatsoever it may happen, I will not accept failure.

Here he says that

On the green grass,

there were drops of dew

just now,

but now they are not there.

The happiness

which will remain with us forever,

was never there and

is no where.

Here he says that

It is a tricky question to find, who is Kaurav and who is Pandav (they were parties in the battle of Kurukshetra, as per Mahabharta Epic of Hindus)

Both sides, there is the net of diplomacy, spread by Shakuni (another character in Mahabharta, who was said to be cause behind the battle)

The lord of religion has not stopped the habit of gambling, Panchali (wife of five Pandavas) is disrespected in every Panchayat.

The Mahabharata is going to be repeated now again, and whosoever may become the king, the poor is going to cry.

He said it all during elections when he found that all the contestants are corrupt and worthless, each one wants to cheat the innocent people.

Here he says that

Sun is the Truth, which cannot be contradicted.

But dew is also a Truth, though this is different thing that it is just for time being

Why not I live every moment? And enjoy the beauty spread out in every particle?
