“Health is wealth’ age old adage, sure a great warning
And guidance; yet the main problems of suffering
For the individuals, society, and sure
The Government is ‘ill health’ of many quite pure!
The life and living with nature was given up
Good bye was sent to good health, people got fed up
With Doctors, medicines, sufferings, quite painful
All to be relieved and redeemed-healthy life restored!

The World Health Organization of U N that served
To bring in help and succor to the sufferings
In the world; let all the states follow their teachings.
In the creation of God-the Lord Almighty
Good and bad, joy and sorrow part of the mighty
And the lowly; we call it karma of our past
“Help ever and hurt never” keep us well to the last.
Health and ill health many a time we are the cause
Let us take care in all respects sure lest alas
We have many including leprosy, my God
People around detest and look down upon, Lord.

A leprosy patient and that made him Mahatma
Leprosy not incurable, God and Doctors cure
Free from the same by their efforts and grace quite sure.
