Just a few minutes back our former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who was on life support at the AIIMS hospital and was in a critical condition left us. As we grieve for the loss of our beloved ex-Prime Minister, we stumbled upon a video of one of his popular poems. This video is 16 years old and the poem in this video is ‘Kya Khoya, Kya Paya’.
This video features Shahrukh Khan and is shot by late filmmaker Yash Chopra. The video also has a reflective introduction which is written by Javed Akhtar and is rendered in the beautiful and rich voice of Amitabh Bachchan. Late ghazal singer Jagjit Singh gave a soul to this magical poem of Atal Bihari Vajpayee by singing it in his magical voice.
The video also features some stills of our beloved ex-Prime Minister.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee was not only a good orator but also a great poet. He is known for writing several poignant poems like ‘Kaidi Kaviraj Ki Kundalian’ and ‘Amar Aag Hai’. He once said, “One day you may become an ex-prime minister, but you will never become an ex-poet” and this thing holds a lot of honesty. We love every poem written by him and we can feel the magic of the words he has used in his every masterpiece. We are going to remember him in many ways.
Vajpayee was admitted to AIIMS Delhi on June 11 and since then there was no improvement in his health. The whole country was praying for his good health and recovery but he left us just today. We will always remember him for the good he has done for his country and the beautiful poems that he left behind for us.
