MADHAVJIBHAI DEVALIA, I SALUTE YOU

 

Madhavjibhai Devalia, I salute You !

Via Agnichakra & Vinodbhai, I came to know You,

Read your Poems & Gujarati articles,I came closer to You,

Met you not, but on the phone, it was a pleasure to talk to You,

You became my Friend !

Madhavjibhai Devalia, I salute You ! ….1

Read your handwritten pages of your Life you had sent,

Read your First Book on sacrificesof Bharatvasi, you had published,

And, under the banner of my Sahitya Trust,”Deshna Dushmano “filled me with Pride.

You are my hero !

Madhavjibhai Devalia, I salute You !…..2

Our friendship had blossomed to a Brotherly Love.

You reminded me of my Late Motabhai & his Love,

You had become a part of my Life,..my Spirit & Love,

Atma to Atma we were One !

Madhavjibhai Devalia, I salute You !…..3

Now, You are far awayin the God’s Land,

Your Family & I are left on this Land,

Yet,Your Light in your memories is shining bright on this Land,

And, Amar You are !

Madhavjibhai Devalia, I salute You !…..4

બે શબ્દો

આ કાવ્ય-રચના અંગ્રેજીમાં છે….માધવજીભઈ દેવાળીઆ , મારા મિત્ર,જેઓ
ઈંગલેન્ડમાં રહેતા હતા,તેમને અચાનક  હાર્ટેએટેક થવાના કારણે, ડીસેમ્બર,૩,૨૦૦૭ના
દિવસે અવસાન થયું…….આ સમાચાર જાણી મેં ઘણું જ દુઃખ અનુભવ્યું અને ઈંગલેન્ડ
ફોન કરી એમના દિકરા અરવિંદ સાથે વાતો કરી, આશ્વાશન આપ્યું, અરવિંદે એક વેબસાઈટ
પર પિતાશ્રીની પ્રથમ ડેથ -એનીવરસરીએ જે કંઈ લખ્યું તે વાંચી,પ્રભુપ્રેરણાથી એક અંજલી
કાવ્ય અંગ્રેજીમાં લખી મોકલ્યું…….એના જવાબરૂપે  અરવિંદે ઈમેઈલથી આભાર દર્શાવ્યો
તે અહી મુક્યો છે>>>>> 
 

Dear Chandravada Kaka!

 

You have just brought tears to my eyes!

 

This is so beautiful and so nice. You ARE good at writing in English J

 

I will print this out and show everyone at the prayers evening tomorrow at my mothers home in Coventry .

 

Even though you never met my father, I am sure we will meet one day soon. Do you ever visit London ?

 

Regards to the family.

 

Love and gratitude.

આ ઈમેઈલ વાંચી, મારી આંખોમાં પણ આંસુઓ હતા. આજે એ બધું યાદ કરતા
મારી સાઈટ ” ચંદ્રપુકાર ” પર એક પોસ્ટરૂપે  કરૂં છું.
માધવજીભઈને હું મળ્યો નથી…ફક્ત, પત્રો અને ફોન દ્વારા થયેલ પરિચય અને
મારા હૈયે એઓ મિત્ર નહી પણ એક મોટાભાઈ સમાન હતા.
તમારે જો અરવિંદે લખેલ અંગ્રેજી લેખ વાંચવો હોય તો નીચેની સાઈટ પર
ક્લીક કરો>>>>>

આશા છે કે તમે સાઈટ પર પધારી આ પોસ્ટ જરૂરથી વાંચશો અને બની શકે તો
તમારો પ્રતિભાવ પણ આપશો.

    You left me, but you cannot leave my heart.
    I hold you there, with or without your will.
    No matter where you go, you will be part
    Of me, my dearest friend and lover still.
    I’ll tell you of the pain I feel, and all

    I was deeply saddened to hear of your friend’s death. Although I did not know him- touched on my heart.
    I hope that you will accept my most sincere sympathy and condolence. I truly hope that you and your family can gather the strength and courage to endure during this difficult time.

    Dear Dr. Chandravadanbhai,

    I, very affectionately, share with your grief of losing a friend. My condolence message is to the Late’s family members also with my prayer for eternal peace to the Late’s soul in heaven.

    Now, I come to the poem you have written. It’s really a tragic poem. The burden line “Madhavjibhai Devalia, I salute you!” is very toucing.

    Regards,
    Valibhai Musa
