The Unassuming Vira

He looks defiant
with a short moustache.

His close cut hair
lends an army man’s

Speaks little. Brief
in replies
just yes or no.

Called Vira,
he lives in a village

Vira, the name denotes
bravrey, but at heart
he is a chicken.

He is an intellect,
well versed in history
an authority in archaeology.

His silence is misunderstood,
Engages in his schedule

The villagers tease him
dub him as a recluse.
Vira smiles. aknowing smile,

One fine morning,
his names flash in news.
The government confers
the highest honour.

The village celebrates.
Vira stays the same.
Shows tremendous poise.
