I am conscious of the fact that this is a universal phenomenon, yet………..
Great country, great people
Noble thoughts, noble deeds
Hallowed Himalayas, reverberating rivers
Fertile fields, magnificent minerals
Fascinating forests, flora and fauna
Lovely languages, lovely people
Seers and saints, philosophers and scientists
Variety of knowledge, variety of culture
Unity in diversity all that we nurture
Love is God, Truth is God
All that we preach sure with nod
Values of life piously pursued!
Ichobad – glory going?
And that indeed is the immediate concern of all the right thinking patriotic citizens of India. How glory is going?
Old order changeth yielding place to new
New order bringeth glory in high view
Along with growth, greed and selfishness in a few
Negative values spread in all its hue!
Older people lamenting loss of values
Younger ones losing faith in moral values
Middle ones mooring neither here nor there
Ship of the Nation inching without care!
What a great people
What a great fall
Violence, betrayal, backstabbing
Jealousy, ingratitude, high cheating
Falsehood, corruption, dishonesty
Deceptions, treachery, infidelity
All that hinders Nation’s progress
All that plunders people’s wealth!
All we need is a Mahatma’s lead
All we plead is noble deed
Another form of freedom struggle
To ensure peace and plenty free from peril!
Shall we get another Mahatma
To involve the intellectuals
To galvanize the society
To integrate the fractured nation
To infuse faith and confidence
To inject oneness and brotherhood
To lift us from lethargy and indifference!
Oh! My beloved Mother Bharath!
Let me set my vision so high
Let my Bharath soar to sky
Let these winged words fly and fly
Till we see the Heaven so nice!
Where are we going at the moment? Here is an unfortunate picture:
Great people, great country, great standards, great morals
Was India that is Bharath-spread of viral
Here and there, fall of standard ethical, moral
Shame on my Mother India-Bharath Matha!
Killers eulogized, their statues garlanded shame
A temple sought to be constructed- nasty game!
Patience-tolerance- intolerance-virtue and vice?
May God give all of us sense to distinguish nice!
Capital punishment sought to be abolished
How murderers and assassins to be punished?
If none has a right to put an end to a life
Given by God, the creator, how I get that right?
What a fall of standard-ethical and moral
A mahatma is the need of the day to guide!
Values the nation cherished for long be revived
Let us get back that golden era- Almighty!
Another area that causes concern is the fall in physical standard of the people. Thanks to advancement in the medical sciences average longevity has gone up considerably, quality of life has seen a fall in the standard. How to explain the youth suffering from obesity, hypertension and diabetes? May be wrong food and health habits? Fast food culture spreading fast?
Can we revive the glory of that great India? Yes when God grants our prayer and the people become conscious of their sacred duty towards our Motherland :
Beloved God! Bless us with good sense
Sense that will act as a great fence
Fence that will protect us and cleanse
Cleanse our thoughts, words and deeds quite tense!
Infested with wrath and envy
Sans reasons – anger, jealousy
Against kith and kin, friends and foes
Drenching with pain, bringing all woes!
Beloved God! Bless us with good sense
Sense of love and warmth quite intense
To shower on all known – unknown,
Good-bad, young -old, poor-rich; seeds sown!
Sown to see them sprout and grow well
Lasting love and peace to prevail
Bringing harmony to the world
Bless us all with good sense- Our Lord!
An optimist’s view:
And till this day’s
Pain and pangs
Sufferings and sorrows
Falls and failures
Poverty and penury
I do see a
Based purely on
Efforts and efficacy
Of hopes and prayer!
A bright and prosperous tomorrow
Seen through my inward eyes
And its melodies
Heard through my inward ears!
I take a resolve here and now honestly to work for it as I am conscious of the fact that it is all in the hands of individuals- individual in the form of a parent, teacher, politician, administrator, social activist, religious worker/ leader- to make or mar the society!
