Oh!  Omniscient Saraswathi! Goddess of Learning
World BOOK Day is this day- all people adoring
Books Thy manifestation-providing knowledge to all
Help us read, acquire knowledge and bless us all stand tall!

Unfortunately placed is our society today
Where book culture has become culture of yesterday
Fast moving times deny the habit of reading
No time to stand and stare at the great books for enjoying!

Writers regret, publishers find it hard to go ahead
Despite Book fairs increasing and sales soaring above head
Habit of reading by youngsters declining fast and strong
Make our system change, parents aware of their wards!

Libraries feel desolate – the public visit not
Pity the Governments have no funds to add-they trot
People have better jobs to do than to spend and read
Oh! The Goddess of learning, kindly bless us and lead!

Days of the ebooks are, we are aware and welcome too
World is worried on the decline of book culture as such
Bless us my God! Restore the noble culture in all
Writers to serve, publishers to prosper, and society stand tall!

(In commemoration of the WORLD BOOK DAY-23-24, April)
