C. V. NarasimhanChakravarthi Narasimhan, Narasimhan!
You are your service-beauty's fragrance-dawn,
UN's mountain-choice, UN's fountain-voice,
UN's failure-tears and its victories to rejoice.
Tall in the body, deep in the heart and vast in life
For God's Joy, Smile and Pride ever to last.
Dear Brother Narasimhan, your life was supremely chosen by the Supreme Himself to serve the United Nations and its illustrious leaders with your brilliant mind, your dynamic life-energy and, above all, your universal oneness-heart.
