Asaman ko choo gaya, jo asmaan sa vishal tha, dharti mein simat gaya, jo mitti jaisa narm tha.
Kaun hai jo Atal reh paya zindagi bhar, Atal banke wo zindagi ko paa gaya.
Om Shanti #AtalBihariVajpayee ji 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/56Xi1sqzEf

“बेनकाब चेहरे हैं, दाग बड़े गहरे हैं
टूटता तिलिस्म आज सच से भय खाता हूं
गीत नहीं गाता हूं
लगी कुछ ऐसी नज़र बिखरा शीशे सा शहर
अपनों के मेले में मीत नहीं पाता हूं
गीत नहीं गाता हूं” India will miss him. #AtalBihariVajpai

Mr Vajpayee served as Indian Prime Minister Thrice. Indian Cricketing fraternity expressed the condolence on his demise which created a void space in Indian minds. It is an unbearable loss for the nation. Vajpayee Ji considered as one of the most influential leaders of the nation. He once said to Indian cricket team led by Sourav Ganguly while they were on the tour to Pakistan, “sirf khel hi nhi dil bhi jeeten (Not only the game but win the hearts too).” Dada Ganguly was so touched with his words and stated that he would do the same for sure. Every person who knew his greatness would remember Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji, but the biggest loss is of the next generation who will only get to listen to the stories about him and his greatness which this generation felt.
Hearty condolence to the legendary great leader and a visionary man of words Mr Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji, you will be remembered by many of us and will be followed by millions to make this country a better place than ever.
