Ramesh T A (28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
A Life Time Achievement Award!
Fluttering heart comes to rest as dove settles top!
A bird's eye view of all things makes a summery;
All things full of fun and trauma keep reeling on
Till settlement in peace comes to give relief sure!
Likewise all life long trials and errors show way;
Natural satisfaction at last comes sure one day
For all the painstaking efforts have yielded fruit!
What a venture each one takes to achieve laurel!
Perfection of proper way to do things best is fine
But not achieving only the success somehow ever!
Life achievement is not an easy joke being conferred
By an award all envy at the ceremony in applauds
Renting the full auditorium cheering people in joy
With speeches of noble ones influencing all to do so!
Inspiring attributes of talented ones create goose-bum
Never allowing the impression formed so leave mind;
A zeal of venture kindles all hearts to aspire to do so
And dream of experiencing feeling of the day then too!
Days lived cannot give any satisfaction but that day,
When one is awarded with lifetime achievement prize!
