He said, “ Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended ;”
Oh, what a sad day, what a splendid life that has ended ;
Unto the almighty, the great soul commended ;
To carry him to heavens, the angels descended ;
The mighty tears, leaving every face bended ;
A glimpse of his greatness, that we all attended ;
A life, simple, honest and contended ;
To science, service and education, all moments expended ;
His inspiring lessons on life, with anecdotes blended ;
The nation salutes, the best teacher we befriended.
