sooner did it don a new garb than it evoked jealousy in heaven
Philip then solicited the emigrants to come back to their heaven
And pleased them by raining gifts and boons in great profusion.
Rare as this royal treat was, it threw them into sweet confusion.
Rarer it turned with the birth of a son - heir to his kingdom
For he greeted Aristotle, "I'm not happy at his birth, O preceptor
But happy million times; for he's bona at your time, O preceptor,
And nothing goes amiss, if trained by you." A unique honour to wisdom!
Another again! to quench Aristotle's insatiable thirst for knowledge
And keep going his studies and round the clock experimentation,
He employed a thousand men of all skills to help augmenting knowledge Besides
providing labs and gardens for uninterrupted experimentation.
What a tribute to the Guru and honour to the people of Stagira
The West has not produced so far alike of this famous Mahavira
Philip of Macidonia, father of Alexander the great lives in history
As long as that speck of gratitude illumines the world history.
Would the debt to Guru at any time be redeemed or recompensed
Would it expect return in cash or kind, or wrong be redressed ?
Despite a negative, wise men strive to redeem it in many ways
Illustrious men like Philip illustrate it in illustrious ways.
