With solemn respect I salute you today, the 24th of April 2010,
As you start your last journey finally alone.
You have walked in and out of so many episodes in my life
Some I have recorded already, but many more are yet to be penned.
In every episode of my life that you have graced,
I have been enriched by your experience
And enthused by your leadership and dynamism;
Even when we have crossed swords over matters that we had looked at differently
We have always retained our membership of the same team pulling for the same goal.
Let me now wish you eternal happiness
and assure you that Chand Bhabi and the children will always retain our affection and support.
