The Jubilee Park

by Nuggehalli Pankaja
(Bangalore,India)

Oh statue so lone and proud,
With the golden cloud blessing brow,
Colourful lights shimmering as halo,
Look down once more as of yore,
And with life instilled, inspire as before!



Speak to us of the days bygone,
Of the time you strove
To fight for what you thought right
And throb the heart of our mother great
That she may again
Smile with pride regained!



Full blooming roses,blow us bowers
Of dreams as creative,
Upshooting fountains, sing us strains
Of thoughts as mighty,
Dew-drooping boughs, drop us visions,
As powerful-as constructive
Of TATA – FATHER OF JAMSHADPUR!

Thanks very much for taking note of my poem, and responding so well .I am interested in reading the yarn you weaved many years back inspired by the statue,and I am sure other readers (esp your fans) will be interested too. Can you please post it on the site?

Once upon a time....
by: Tanuja Chatterjee

Hi!
I could see for myself where you would have paused to take note of that magnificent statue of Jamshedji Tata, at Jubilee Park. I too weaved a yarn or two, standing before it, on 3rd March, for eight long years, though the texture of my poems changed drastically after 1988. Loved your poem.

Pankaja!
by: Geetashree Chatterjee

By ' figures standing taller among the rest'I meant people of great achievement - the stalwarts and the statesmen. Your verse brings forth the grandiose of their aura and attainments - a kind of haloed projection of what they were and what they did for the country. Its difficult for us (read me) to write such kind of verse because I feel we are an impoverished lot in terms of ideological leadership and seldom find an exemplary figure to extol. This is what I meant by 'opulent' - a striking quality of the inspired poems that you have uploaded on iww so far. (I think I have reiterated it just now on one of your posts!!)

Your Poems

You do really bring forth a very ornate, opulent picture, in your poems, of those figures who stand taller amongst the rest!
