I Salute You

Monday 20 July 2015, by Som Benegal

One more link with the past has gone,

One more patriot gone to rest forever,

United with history in the journal of her life.

O, Aruna Asaf Ali, I salute you

For your tireless wanderings

Through the maze of revolution,

But never faltering even though

Your comrades locked you out at journey’s end.
