I met the then Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee in Feb 2003. I wanted to present him a copy of my book Geeta Kavya Madhuri (a verse to verse translation of all 700 Sanskrit shlokas of Srimad Bhagwat Geeta) and he had promptly given me time. I recall that was the day President Putin of Russia was visiting Delhi yet Atal Ji called me to 7 Race Course Road and spent a good 15 minutes with me looking at my book and encouraging me (see the photograph). I think all this happened because of the fact that Atal Ji is a poet to the core. I have presented many of Atal Jiís poems on this site. Today (Dec 25, 2013) on his 89th birthday, I am adding another of his inspiring poem. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
