Kalpana Chawala
{17 March 1962-----1 February 2003}
[A tribute to Kalpana Chawala on the eve of her birth anniversary]

You were
A brave astronaut
However in a second
You were
Reduced to naught

Your spacecraft
A wonderful design
Of modern techno-art
It caught fire
It turned into pyre

At the entry point
In the atmosphere
Till the last moment
She the brave woman
Was without fear

At the atmospheric boundary
Amazing space- geometry
But alas! Unfortunately
It itself turned into
Cosmic cemetery

It was your great passion
To pursue space mission
It was your desire keen
But hard luck! Your spacecraft
Proved to be ill fated flying coffin

Long live Kalpana Chawala
Long live her spirit
In the history of space
She has established
Wonderful merit

{Also tribute to the crew of the ill fated space shuttle Columbia---
The crew included----Rick D Husband, William C McCool, Michael P Anderson, Ilan Ramon, David M Brown, Laurel B Clark}

The price is never too much to pay for space

The rhyming is exquisite throughout - love this sequence ..

"At the atmospheric boundary
Amazing space- geometry
But alas! Unfortunately
