What Makes An Absolute Leader !!

What makes you an absolute leader..


Words that come from heart and stir the soul

Warmth that your aura upholds and unrolls

An enigmatic humility, yet upfront n bold

Friendly, yet  detached, focused on goal


An earnest smile that lights up a heart

Wisdom that ignites one’s mind with many thoughts

Earnest feeds that strike a cord

Effortless flow of discourses in a lyrical art


Be amiable and amenable, yet firm and intense

Fits well with the overall panache and elegance

There are things about you, one shouldn’t comprehend

May that be a part of your persona beyond everyone’s cognizance


Passion and excellence be your tenet

Innate style to make a connect

An eye to differentiate the jewels from the stones

Talent to warrant and not just owning the throne


What makes one extraordinary are yet the things above all

A burning desire to constantly evolve

Striving to escalate and rise with a resolve

No! Its not the power, the rule, the reign etcetera…

What makes you absolute is being the worthy winner of cathedra!

 

Winning in Personal Life…. ( A Tribute To My Partner )

ON THE LONELY ROAD!!

 

On this lonesome road, I was walking in solitude,

Wondering if it was the right one to choose

Looking for directions, lost in my reverie

Praying for an aide and then you came en route

 

Saw me on my tramp, with my unsteady stride

Fear of falling abyss, you took my hand to guide

Led my way, instilled me with self belief

Showed me the path so lucid, so discreet

 

I have taken some vows n taken some oaths

All with your potion of care and support

Am ready and braced to take it ablaze

Only with your fortitude, with poise and grace

 

You gave me my reason, my raison d’être

Promises I made to you, I shall deliver

You are my mast, without you I’d quiver

You are my mentor that I so revere

 

Now that I am resurrected and rechristened

Found my journey and my triumph

Scaling new heights, making for ascend

Learned to rejoice and rise to transcend

 

Be there, be around as I shall need your spirit

On your gumption, I took to detour

Inspired by your resolve, took many pledges

Withstood challenges and fought many battles,

 

You are my power house, I seek strength from you

You kindle my fire, get my beacon from you

You enthuse me each morning, you teach me how to live

To embrace the defeats as bravely as victories

 

I have loved your ardor and your gaiety

I am in awe of your heroic deity

Don’t abandon me amidst my path to salvation

I need you to turn to, till I attain self actualization!

 

The tacit gratitude, I treasure in my heart

A feeling unspoken, till am ready to depart

Knowing you will know how much I need

God sent you as my companion, together we shall tread!!

 

Its a step towards my personal goal……

To Win in personal life – Never take relationships for granted, specially the precious ones. Never fall short of words for those who contribute enormously to your life and support earnestly in making you what you are today…..

So started with a little verse that I gifted to my life partner, on our anniversary yesterday.

Inertia !!

Today, like every other day

I open the newspaper…

A homicide case

19 year old

An honour killing

A student committed suicide

In campus ragging

Rupee falling

Inflation rising

Political parties busy in

Hoarding and mud slinging

 

I open my window…

A factory exhaling smoke

Engulfing the slum

Ever so widening

Carcinogenic fumes

Lung cancer increasing

Amongst the slum dwellers

Insanitary conditions

Reeking and stinking

Poverty line stretching

 

I open my door….

And let my maid in

She is pregnant again

I think its 6th

Their ever proliferating offspring

I have stopped counting

Education becoming dearer

Job opportunities extinct

 

I open my garage….

Get inside my car

Fuel needle dropping

Almost collide

A vehicle over speeding

On traffic lights

An unkempt, shabby kid

Window pane tapping

Beggary is the only industry

Flourishing n thriving

 

I open my mind….

I shut my eyes

What are we doing

To ourselves

To our new saplings

To our mother earth

Ozone diminishing

Corruption full swing

Amassing concrete and polyurethane

Losing our green

Proliferating exponentially

Resources depleting

What the hell are we doing

 

God save us

From our own species

Our unchecked greed

To exploit n succeed

Our unquenched lust

For power ‘n’ feat

To fleece ‘n’ cheat

Our mental myopia

Indifferent and boorish

Let me do something

 

I open my desk…..

Papers in piles

Emails and files

A staff member to penalize

Target to meet

A boss to please

No time to think

A hectic day isn’t it

And I get busy

Doing more important things !!
