(To The Prominent Painter Late Shri Dayanand Shetty)

My mentor you departed silently gifting a treasure to the world,

Why to grieve, why to distract, while you are marching towards peace.

You have created, the creations will see each other with proud smile,

Your beloved, the whole world will watch them, you feel sublime peace.

Aarti(Worship) will worship you Arun(Dawn) will light the dawn around your soul,

You will smile from somewhere not far and feel a content peace.

Neha(Lovable) will nurture your memory Devki(Divine) will wave spring to the soul,

You will bestow all your blessings upon them and sleep in peace.

Sense of loss of togetherness is cruel, but even then my mentor,

I refrained myself to bare my teardrops, to let you be in peace.

You have completed your long journey, and achieved the desired goal,

That is why you are too tired, till reincarnation happen, Rest In Peace.

Rabindranath Banerjee (Ranjan)
