I recently read in the news paper about what Ratan Tata has said.
I wanted to write a short poem on it.I tried and this is what I could come out with:
Great business icons like Birla and Tata
Choose when to wish bye-bye or say ta-ta
They would like to retire like you and me
From the hectic life in their Company
Basically simple men at heart
With panache they play their assigned part
Very modest are their wishes and desires
For life after they finally retire
He doesn’t want to leave on a wheel chair
Ratan wants to quit early and smell the fresh air
Or perhaps write a book or even learn to cook
Put on his dancing shoes or do the hip-hop
Remaining fit and fine till the body clock stops.
He seems to have made a list of things to do
Let’s hope he achieves them all like me and you
Yes. Let him enjoy his peaceful life to the hilt
Having devoted decades to the house Tatas built.
May he find a worthy successor to his empire
And leave the house ship shape when he retires
He is right when he says: I want to break free
He deserves this simple wish, don’t you agree ?
