My Tribute to Two Great April Indians

Sachin Tendulkar (24 April, 1973…), Cricketer – scored 100th century on 16 March, 2012
What a man!
What a plan!
What a 100th century!
Sachin’s created history!
With such grace and élan!
I absolutely fawn
Over this April born -
For his humility and dedication,
And the way he handles all adulation!
I salute Tendulkar – the sports icon!

Srinivasa Ramanujan, Mathematician (22 December, 1887 – 26 April, 1920) Year 2012 – his 125th Anniversary
Ramanujan - the influential mathematician of 20th century -
His ‘Conjectures’ contributed hugely to the Numbers Theory.
The mathematical legacy he left behind,
Is the genius of his brilliant mind.
His place – very special in Maths' history!


And it gives me some thrill
That I was born on 25th April,
Between the birth and death dates
Of these two April greats!
Though their shoes, I can never fill…
