If They Ask
By Rajiv Khandelwal

If they ask
Tell them their grandfather
Was studious
Was a sportsman
Was a dramatist
Was a singer
Was a prolific reader

If they ask
Tell them
He was a loner
He was mostly an introvert
He was a perfectionist

If they ask
Tell them
When he played at being an extrovert
He was as charming as a playful kid
He was a slick speaker
He was a great leader
Liked and loved by most

If they still ask
Tell anything that comes to your mind

Or just this-moment-generated-little-white-lie

But never tell them
He tried
To be a good father
