Today (25 Dec) is the birthday of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Atal Ji for the countrymen. He is one of the most popular leaders of the nation, a statesman as well as a Kavi. When my book Geeta Kavya Madhuri was published in 2002, I wrote to Atal Ji that I wanted to personally come and give him few copies. He was at that time the Prime Minister. I was surprised to receive very soon an invitation to personally meet him. I remember the day of our meeting. Atal Ji spared a good 15 minutes to meet me in his own home on Race Course Road drawing room and read some portions of the book (photograph below). He was very appreciative and generous in his comments. All countrymen would affectionately wish him a long life on this birthday. I am presenting two of his poems. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
