krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

(1964 and doing pretty good.. / Thiruvalla, Kerala)

Mahatma Gandhi


Will there ever be in history books such a glorious one
Who almost singularly brought an empire down?
Making Ahimsa and Satyagraha his lethal weapons
He fought till the oppressors left with their dented crown

An epitome of simplicity all his life
And God almighty his friend and guide
He sought to include and never to divide
This disunited mass of Indians spread out wide

Even today as we madly swim ahead
On the material prosperity’s tidal flood
Let us not forget and lose our heads
Because freedom came with sweat and martyrs blood

Let us now renew the pledge in Mahatma’s name
To better conditions today and also work for tomorrow
To create a nation that lives up to his eternal fame
And be an example for other nations to follow

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this on Gandhi Jayanthi day. One man who gave the world the most potent weapon of satyagraha (non violent protest) and brought tormentors to their knees by hurting their conscience. The world now needs more people like him for true peace to prevail.

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
