The mighty river of EFI began like a tiny stream
In the sacred mind of Garg ji to realise the dream
Many great streams like Dinesh ji, Gurucharan ji
Merged to add vigour and colour to the flow
Many a mighty and tiny flow began to join the row
Thus it fertilises, satiates many inquisitive minds
Without any returns; lovers of plant world find
This fertile land to explore to tour to their choice
To rejoice, gain something with or without thanks
It is like sacred monument built with the souls
Of plant lovers scientists and students from hills
Of Himalayas to coast of Indian Ocean from western
Desert region to eastern fertile region of this land
Since the flow has completed 15 years of journey
Gathered more than three thousand people
Stored more than 14000 plant species in the crest
Without any selfish monetary transactions
The most pleasant thing is the purity of thought
Nobility in actions modesty in behaviour
Made it a holy place to roam to visit to enjoy!
It is Ever Flowing Independent Indian blood for good!

It is priceless, Lalithamba ji.
Kudos for your great skills.
Beautiful poem, Lalithamba ji!
The 15-year journey of eFI is well-depicted and condensed into 20+ lines…so in-depth and powerful!!
I request members to pl. circulate it widely in other groups, on their Facebook/ Instagram/ Twitter account etc., to give wide publicity, to celebrate 15 years of coming completion.
Excellent analysis of entire team in poetry format, each and every line is meaningful
