डॉ. एपीजे अब्दुल कलाम

रायपुर | संवाददाता: एपीजे अब्दुल कलाम को छत्तीसगढ़ से बेहद प्यार था. वे बीस से अधिक बार बस्तर की यात्रा कर चुके थे. राष्ट्रपति बनने से पहले भी उन्होंने ये यात्रायें की और बाद में भी. उन्होंने छत्तीसगढ़ पर एक कविता भी लिखी थी. मूल कविता इस प्रकार है-

Glory to the great people of Chhattisgarh.

I have moved and moved many times,
In the dense forests of Chhattisgarh,
The heartland of the nation.
It was indeed a beautiful and memorable mission.

Joy entered into me to be part of fragrant flowers and the music of Chitrakote falls,
Beauty penetrated into me and cheered with happiness.
Again, my heart blossoms to see you friends,
On this great foundation day.

Let me salute the martyrdom of Veer Narain Singh on this day,
In this great land, unfolded the revolution – Bhoomkal,
Born was the peace mission and unity of minds of Guru Ghasidas,
Khoobchand dreamt a prosperous land.

In the valley of Mahanadi,
I see a developed India, happy India emerging.
Sweat of the hardworking people,
Radiating in the lotus heart of this land.

Glory to the great people of Chhattisgarh.
