THE YAMUNA GENTLY WEEPS TONIGHT
MANOJ KUMAR MISRA
Saurabh Popli
LA 74
Quiet and reserved, few could claim to know Manoj Kumar Misra well, for beyond his soft eyes and easy demeanor he was often inscrutable. Those to whom he revealed his vast knowledge, insight, and purpose can consider themselves fortunate, for he was a most unusual man. Mistaken for being laconic, he was just careful and deeply perceptive.
   Neither the cancer ravaging his body, nor the discomfort that was apparent after his surgery fazed him much. His only complaint was that for a short while, he was unable to post a new flower, or leaf for identification to his closest, inner circle, a loyal if eclectic band of devoted friends who followed his tweets every morning; and the brief conversations that ensued from his routine morning walk to the old University campus near his home, were lively and interesting.
