Arun Jaitley

Let us take a look at some of the poems that the Union Finance Ministers have recited during their budget speeches.

Manmohan Singh (1990-91)

Yunaan-o-Misr-o-Rom sab mit gaye jahaan se/ Ab tak magar hai baaki, naam-o-nishaan hamara.

Yashwant Sinha (2001-02)

Taqaazaa hai waqt kaa ke toofaan se joojho, kahaan tak chaloge kinaare kinaare.

Pranab Mukherjee (2009-10)

"In the interest of the prosperity of the country, a king shall be diligent in foreseeing the possibility of calamities, try to avert them before they arise, overcome those which happen, remove all obstructions to economic activity and prevent loss of revenue to the state."

Pranab Mukherjee (2012-13)

"I must be cruel only to be kind."

P Chidambaram (2013-14)

Kalangathu kanda vinaikkan thulangkathu thookkang kadinthu seyal.

Arun Jaitley (2015-16)

Kuchh to gul khilaye hain, kuchh abhi khilaane hain, Par baagh mein ab bhi kaante kuchh puraane hain.

Arun Jaitley (2016-17)

Kashti chalaane walon ne jab haar kar di patwar hamein,

Lehar lehar toofan mile aur mauj mauj manjdhaar hamein.

Phir bhi dikhaya hai humne, aur phir yeh dikha denge sabko,

In halato mein aata hai daria karna paar humein.

Arun Jaitley (2017-18)

Nayi duniya hai, naya daur hai, nayi hai umang,

Kuch the pahle se tariqe to kuch hain aaj ke rang-dhang.

Roshni aake jo andheron se takdai hai,

Kaale dhan ko bhi badalna pada aaj apna rang."
