**Bhubaneswar:** Nayagarh MLA Arun Sahu has always hogged headlines for his penchant for poetry. The youth leader turned legislator, Sahu is also known to be a fitness enthusiast.
On New Year’s day, Sahu said that people in the public life will naturally wish that the common man prospers and keeps healthy. “I urge Odias all around the globe to join hands with growth-oriented people to build a progressive Odisha,” he said.
Exchanging pleasantries with mediapersons today, Sahu shared a self-composed poem – ‘Mrutyu Ra Jibana’.
“Mrutyu aase nistabda re, keun eka ajana tithi re….Bina amantrana re, kimba ek ajachita atithi bhabare….”
(Death comes with a steadied silence, undeclared; Without an invitation or as an uninvited guest….) “This is a long poem which reflects the dimensions and realities of life and death.”
Everyone should be conscious about healthy lifestyle. Physical fitness reflects in mental stability and health, he added. “My fitness mantra remains, regular walk and jog, have measly meals. Try to smile always and refrain from back-biting and calling names.”
