Eighty to Hundred you will be jumping in years twenty
Imbibed all qualities noble from thy parents in plenty
Garnering the support and cooperation of all in life
High echelons you could progress with hard and great work in file
Total dedication to your work infusing in others too
You were a role model EMEM for me in my career!

Towards friends and relatives you were nice and kind-madam ably
Outstandingly helping in all your life- daughters brought up lovely!

Honors came on your way on their own-not going for it yourself
Utmost devotion lased with honesty and humor making ourselves

Historic day in Indian economy
The objective of bringing out the black money
Currency notes of high value were demonetized
poor people became poorer-depressed and deserted!

I am a black money holder-my black money
Of four thousand five hundred was brought out rightly
Another three thousand brought out after a few months
still lying safe in my blessed purse in cup board!

Practice of ladies keeping money safe for emergency
Seven thousand was found after the death of my lady
Beloved wife-by the time exchange at bank offer was over
Indian economy grew up sky high- tales of woes for ever!



“Love all, Serve all”, “Help Ever, Hurt Never” -that is all
What I know on earth and what all I need to know- stand tall
No need for religion, religious literature
Society to practice and ensure a bright future!

It is not theory but practical one canb follow
We have many who have lived and shown others can follow
Mahatma Gandhi -Father of the Nation was there
Mother Teresa who lived among us born elsewhere!

This is the day- years-long thirty seven ago
Mother Teresa got her Nobel Award for peace
We are proud and she the beacon light shown with ease
The way to live a life simple and noble on earth!



Beyond the grills of my beautiful window
A lovely sight I get as the gift of wind!
A plant of two years with height of ten feet
Bows with respect to the God of wind quite neat!

East to West and West to East, South to North and
North to South –gentle movement supporting wind
Adding to the great pleasure of breeze sitting
On this good side of the grill and enjoying!

A beautiful crow just glides and lands on the
Tender green plant- plant obliging the crow
A space to perch and moving along wit the
Plant’s branches- the great creation of God!



A Sanskrit prayer reads:
“Swasthip prajaabyaha paripaalayanthaam
Nyaayaena maargaeNa mahee maheesaaha
Go brahmaNaabyaha subha masthu nithyam
Loka samastha sukino bavanthu,
Sarvae janaaha sukhino bavanthu!E”
The last two lines offering prayer:
“May the whole world be at peace and joy
May the entire people be at peace and joy!”
All the prayers end invoking God for peace:
“Ohm Shanthi! Ohm Shanthi! Ohm Shanthi”
“ Ohm peace! Ohm Peace! Ohm Peace!”

Today is International Day of Peace-theme of the year
“Together for Peace, Respect, Safety and Dignity for all”
A noble occasion for all in the world to work united
To achieve the theme throughout the world and all times.

Let us honour the spirit of being TOGETHER,
A global initiative to promote respect, safety
And dignity for everyone forced to flee their homes
In search of a better life- a great day to work for success!



‘Forget and Forgive’ words of wisdom often quoted
“Forget” may be human but “Forgive” is Divine –blessed
September Seventh “Forgiveness Day”worldwide observed
Let us develop the same in us for greater peace !

Forgetting and forgiving enable society
To be with poise, needs harmony and friendship-variety
For every one to try to the level best-serve
The cause –for individual, home and society !

“Love all and serve all” paves path for forgiveness pure
“Help ever, hurt never” spreads red carpet quite sure
Let us take to the path Divine, forget and forgive
Lord Almighty in all HIS compassion, takes to Heaven!


September 2- “BAKRID” IS TODAY

“Eid al -Adha”-Festival of the Sacrifice-‘Bakr-eid’ is to day
A great and holy day all over the Muslim World -Festival day
Ibrahim ready to sacrifice his son- an act of submission
To HIS command-God accepted and blessed in great appreciation!

To share our pleasures with others and sharing their pains true is Divine
Islamic families share the sacrificed animal and remain
Satisfied with one third to them, one third to friends, relatives- the last
One third to the poor and needy- principle of sharing pleasure fast!

Allahu Akbar
Ashahadunna la ilaha illillahu
Asahadunna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Hayya lassala
Lailaha- illalahee!

Sing in praise of Allah sure five times
Spare one fifth of what you earn
For those who suffer hard all times
Make them happy with what you can!

Polygamy surely not a ban
Without which happily live I can
Sunflower plant holds only one
Never a second flower born in its stem!

Allahu Akbar
Allah is undoubtedly great!

Asahadunna la ilaha illillahu
To me Allah and Allah alone is God!
Asha ha duanna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Prophet Mohammed last messenger of Allah!

Hayya lassalla
Come rush to namaz
Hayya lalfala
Get deliverance from the pain of Hell!
La ilaha illillahee
Allah is holy and great!

Day is gone and time for namaz
Call is heard from the holy tower
Allahu Akbar
What a great mystic experience
Godly light from sacred Mecca
Heavenly light from holy Bethleham
Divine light from hallowed Himalayas
All flash through mind’s layers!

Allah, Christ and Maheshwara
Blessing me fine to reach the Goal
Goal when reached redeems the soul
Through love and piety, peace and poise
Compassion and universal brotherhood all to rejoice!

Hayya lal fala
Get me the deliverance from the pains of hell!
Bismillah irrehiman nirrahim
Most merciful and benevolent Allah!

Hayya lassalla
