Indo - Swiss Ayansh
P K Routray
Welcome Ayansh welcome,
May God bless you with uncanny acumen and divine wisdom.
You are born as a Swiss national,
but Indian by blood and by virtue of your birth right parental.
You will be lucky to sing two country’s national anthems,
we do not know which flag will fly when you reach as world’s top in games.
Your mother may be dreaming to see you as one among the Nobel laureates,
father must be thinking to see you meeting all his targets.
All of us wish you good luck and good health,
also peace and bliss of life with plenty of divine wealth.
Your paternal grandfather may be dreaming many things for you,
born in adversity the things he dreamt, could not do.
You are his proudest possession,
Surely and certainly you will not belie his expectation.
Your maternal grandfather is Gullu papa to your mother,
He may be proud to get you in his family tree as the male member.
He may be waiting also to see you as some chief executive,
to work under you with lot of freedom to live beyond hundred years fit and active.
He may be thinking of staying on to open a saw mill there,
cut abundantly available pine trees into logs and sell to the Swiss builder with fanfare .
So that he remains close to you, the dearest to his heart,
When you grow up take him along with you while dating so that he deels young and smart.
Quickly you become his friend in e mail and face book circuit,
You will find many a fair sex across the globe spanning from eight to eighty.
Your father’s mother wants you to grow fast,
to see a great- grandson before breathing her last.
your maternal grandmother may like to stay with you,
to teach a lesson on pangs of separation to her husband and to test his love, false or true.
Because of your birth in a foreign country you are likely to see the best on the earth or may be the worst also,
While enjoying the best learn and do your utmost to convert to advantage whatever worst the land does bestow.
( The poem is a spontaneous outburst on the occasion of Mr P gaan my friend being blessed with a Grandson Ayansh born in Switzerland)
