Theme: Persona

J. Jayalalithaa

Benign like a flower,
Powerful like a hundred-limbed river,
This thousand-faced bower.
Lovely actress-dancer,
A charming leader,
Of oceans of betrayals and sufferings,
A pain drinker.
They say,
She could have done better,
To blame than to do,
Always easier. 
Her life like the vicissitudes of life-river,
Sometimes kind, sometimes cruel,
Contained many lessons for ordinary mortals,
As she rose to Goddess’s portals.

Comments on this Poem

Comment 'Contained many lessons for ordinary mortals', how true the line is! Yes. Jayalalithaa's life is something completely different, adventurous, tortuous, rewarding and punishing finally.

You have summarized Jayalalithaa's life succinctly Madam!
