He was a "complete" human being. His plenitude was not only evident in his writing but also in his personality, those who knew him would agree. He excelled at many things, literature, poetry, education, sports, languages, singing, and acting. He was a great husband, an excellent father, a beautiful friend, and an amazing grandfather. But above all, he was a proponent of humanity. He didn’t believe in any other thought, knowledge, or achievement more than humanity.
His writing creations were influenced by many stages throughout his life.

“ A bird is more powerful than the sun”. His poetry revealed his love and admiration for all life forms. In his world, the universe and nature were an extension of humanity, as he expressed his feelings of love, loss, joy, pain, courage, by seamlessly affixing earthly elements like the moon, sun, rain, water, earth, birds, with human emotions.
“No point in flickering like a firefly, if you wish to burn then do it like the sun”. He was an innocent, sensitive, and calm human being but also possessed a fire within and a strong will of determination.
“ The night is still young, dawn is a bit far away
Raise your head and do not lose hope,
Light up all the candles in your way
Which moon are you looking for in the sky?
Which direction have you laid your eyes on?
You are unaware of your enormous power,
Where is the light that you are calling for?
Just muster some determination once,
And watch all the candles light up on your calling”
