Achu – The Mahout

My father turns 84. He celebrates the thousand full moons. He had a childhood dream of becoming a Mahout. He celebrates his 84th birthday with his wife who turns 75.

The young Mahout
Is all of 84

For this young heart
The age
Is just a mere score

Bathed fresh
In milky light of thousand moons
He is up for many more

Centre of attention
Full of charm
He is Always in the fore

A poster boy
Has a place in every heart
One that we all adore

All our worries
And our many frets
In him we could conveniently pour

A meticulous planner for Sure
But Till the job is done
He wouldn’t let out a snore

A patriarch now
His grand and dynamic legacy
Is kind of a lore

Of his large persona
We are a mere shadow
Every passing year he glows even more

The young Mahout
Is all of 84

Even today
To proudly sit on a tusker
He would be happy even more
