Surfer's poem: Kalpana Chawla

She wants to fly high, she wants to touch the sky, She wants to see what's up there, and tell about that... writes Kirtika Jha.

Tribute To Late Kalpana Chawla

She wants to fly high,
She wants to touch the sky,
She wants to see what's up there,
And tell about that to the people living here.

She broke the chains,
And reached beyond the rains.
She achieved what she wants,
And thus became an astronaut.
Then she made her first attempt,

She dose it perfectly
As she was not a new claimant.
Now, again she was selected
Because her talent was uninflected.
This time her tour was on Colombia.
After hearing this we all were glad,

As she was from India.
But this time her plans were something else.
She wants to become a star,
Who removes the darkness without any bars?
So she gave up her life.
But Kalpana , we really want you to come back
And be alive.
