Alas, what a pity not a day passess sans
A report on atrocities and violence

By parents, teachers and others- young and old
In offices and outside, in the moving vehicles
In gardens and homes, parks and schools= be condemned.
“ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN DAY”
Is today. Ax Gandhiji said-that day is the independence day
“When women in India is able to walk alone
Safe in the midnight “. When are we to see that golden day?
What a fall from the noble concept of joint family-dove
Turned to be a nucleus family today bereft of love
For elders-parents, grand parents, uncles and aunts, cousins great
The golden days of yore are gone! Small family today’s treat!
The loss of family values, depreciation of nice
Institution of marriage and all made FAMILY DAY a spice!
To celebrate happiness, love, loyalty and devotion
Let us all join and pray for peace and harmony in the nation!
Family day let us hold is for undying values sure
Love, loyalty and that it is great happiness to all pure.

Million families make the mighty world with joy and light!.
