2015-31 - Phoenix of life

Life is a phoenix, can rise from the ashes

Presents a future at challenging situations

This altar of ashes is fountain of new life

War was thrusted, martyrdom shined

Memories of soldiers ignite beauties of life

Phoenix is a metaphor of life in action

Ashes remind us to celebrate greatness of those lives.

(Dr. Kalam wrote this poem to mark his visit to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Moscow where the ashes of the martyrs of the second world war Russian soldiers are kept. Seeing the newly-wed Russian couples getting themselves photographed at the memorial, the President wrote this poem.)

"Thinking should become your capital asset, no matter whatever ups and downs you come across in your life."
~ A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
