Guess who?

A small boy - the fifth amongst seven siblings of a poor father, was selling newspapers in a small village to earn his living. He was not exceptionally smart at school but was fascinated by religion and rockets.

The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that he built crashed multiple times and he was made a butt of ridicule. He is the person to have scripted the Space Odyssey of India single-handedly - Dr. APJAK

Life is a Game

At every stage of life
you play a different role.
Sometimes you are the Pawn,
sometimes the Rook:
sometimes the Knight,
or Bishop,or King.
You have power over one,
but another can overpower you.
Circumstances determine
your positions and moves.
You may lose,or you may win.
But the winner does not
inherit the Chessboard.
And the board must be cleared
for the next game.
True it's not whether you win or lose.
It's how you play the game.

Life is a journey.
Its path is destiny.
And following is its itinerary.

The first halt is childhood.
Gentle as a breeze
and delicate like a flower.
As beautiful as a rain shower.

The next being the youth.
Full of courage and exuberance.
Blissful and lively.
Just like a feel that's heavenly.

After that is the oldage.
Calm like the waves of a sea.
With no worries there to be.

The final is the death.
A time to remember
the above three and
forever to be free
