Professor Gafoor has been honoured with the title "Iraiyarul Kavimani" (the gems like poet with Divine Grace).
Infact divine grace is the implicit force to learn, read, reflect and at every stage of our life. There is no wonder that the inspiring songs of this scholar will invoke reflective thinking in every one.
I wish that every one should read his poems and derive maximaum pleasure as well as benefit out of them.
I also wish that the scholar should compose a number of similar poems as laurels to his laudable mission of patronising Tamil language and literature.
