Ratan Tata’s wish..

Ratan Tata’s wish..
I recently read in the news paper about what Ratan Tata has said.
He said: “Company not pushing me out. I am choosing to go.Its my desire..I have always said that I did not want to leave in a wheel chair or in a box. After retirement I want to just break free. I hope to find the time to do the things that I have always wanted to do.” 
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 ?

    There is a proverb, “Bala Jyosyam, Vridha Vaidhyam”–meaning, an astrologer should be young for his words will prove success and a doctor should be old, as his experience will cure the patient. A Tata or Birla cannot retire, as his experience counts more for the good progess of his company. There is no age of retirement for a politician or a doctor, or an industrialist, as we all see what is happening in our country today.

    Is it okay to put a portion of this in my personal blog if perhaps I submit a reference to this website?
