I Salute You

Saturday 18 July 2009, by Som Benegal

One more link with the past has gone,

One more patriot gone to rest forever,

United with history in the journal of her life.

O, Aruna Asaf Ali, I salute you

For your tireless wanderings

Through the maze of revolution,

But never faltering even though

Your comrades locked you out at journey’s end.

July 31, 1996 Som Benegal
