Sthitapragna

STHITAPRAGJNA
Thiru Dr. M. S. SWAMINATHAN


Glory and glitter,
Simplicity and grandeur
Thine inner chambers
Even in charming greens.

Knowledge you inhale
Research you exhale
Thou art breathing farming fresh
Benevolent thou, beckon
Nation’s Farm Policy.

Bright in looks
And long in titles
Only short of ‘Nobel’,
Sweet and warm
Your gesture unforgettable.

Penning ‘Foreword’ for
Agricultural Banking:
Getting the perspective Right
Thou art conferred a great honour unto me.
‘Files drive Right to Information
Farmers drive Right to Food’
Who else but thou can short-script thus.
Longing for this day of blessing
To present unto you, my humble offering.
