To our holy Motherland- India tht is Bharath
From the days of our ancestors to this day on this earth
“Cleanliness is deemed to be next to Godliness”-not new
Gandhiji said the toilet must be as clean us pooja room!
Never cleanliness was made a political issue
Indian society conscious of our philosophy
Not to give credence to the political propaganda
We continue to be conscious of cleanliness!
Cleanliness of the body and mind, neighborhood nice
Leads to healthy living making our lives joyful spice
Healthy mind in a healthy body age old adage
All to ensure cleanliness all over- as a package!
The Lord Almighty- great creator of the Universe
Provided us with what all we need out of NATURE –HIS GRACE
Air, Light, Gas, water, heat and all that give health and happiness
To make the world a heaven to live in peace and poise!
OZONE prevents the ultraviolet radiation
From reaching the ground, creating normal condition
For the life on the planet; protects us from the sun rays
And forms suitable light and warmth conditions of the world!
Depletion of the layer increases radiation
Causing skin cancer, cataract, and weakens immune system
Making us suffer the infectious diseases!
Today is WORLD OZONE DAY- let us think and protect Ozone!
Lo! Where are we heading to as a society?
Devaluation of great and noble values
Degradation of societal grades
Demonetization of principles great and practices noble!
Lack of devotion, dedication and duty consciousness
Loyalty, punctuality, consistency, at all levels.
Sanctity of keeping up the words and promises
Sunken fathom deep most unfortunate!
White collared employees or blue collared workers
Make no difference in the display of their indifference!
Society pays with no proper returns from all these
Vexed we become praying God to bless these with sense!
Strange indeed is the strength of alibis in the world!
To do a thing or not to do, right or wrong quite bold.
Regular early morning walker for decades six
And more. Yet one morning he feels like not- in a fix!
Slight drizzles he can easily withstand but takes as
An alibi for avoiding the morning walk alas!
A long time friend wants to visit after long pass
No mood to entertain finds an alibi-head ache!
Constant munching of snacks while at home alone satisfies
But sure not good for health beyond seventy-decides
Not to take for hours six- finds a strong alibi
In the visit of a guest and takes to his heart’s content!
My great and holy Motherland India that is Bharath
Indeed a great contributor for the humanity on earth
To keep the mind and body healthy and trim through Yoga
Uniting mind and body inextricably to each other via yoga!
East and West, South and North of the world are benefited sure
Through the knowledge and practice of great Art and Science pure
Ancient Rishis of India inventors be saluted
On this sacred day of INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY revered!
Let Yoga be practiced by all irrespective of region
And religion, age and sex, poor and rich in all fasion
Taught to us by the great Yoga teachers, veteran masters
Healthy mind and healthy body assured by these matters!
Lack of blood pure, sufficient and circulation normal
Leads to one’s inevitable end and exit- cruel
Can be of any reason-malnutrition, accident
Fortunate it is one can help the other donating!
World Blood Donor Day is today the fourteenth of June
For those in dire need for survival it is a bright moon
Group tallying, donor available indeed a great boon
May be exiting life of the person revived quite soon!
Person strong enough in body and mind, hygene and health
Loses not much by blood donation but adds his wealth
Wealth of good deed deriving the blessings of the Lord
On this great day let us resolve to help and please God!

Oceans are the greatest gift of God for the living beings
Humans and animals, mountains, hills and dales, birds and all livings
Get a lot from the oceans excellent expression of Nature
Sure to be kept neat and safe, clean and clear for the sake of future!
Greatest danger comes from the man who throws all the plastic trash
Into the sea polluting the whole ocean unsafe for all to dash
The hopes of the world simply but surely idiotic and unfair
The saner among the humans have to prevent this nonsense- quite fair!
Rivers and tanks, lakes and seas, wells and all water bodies deemed
As divine manifestation and have to be revered and respected
Sure not to be pollutes by any means -throwing the wastes
Plastics onwards and maintain the sanctity and purity of oceans.
WORLD OCEAN DAY is today the eighth of June every year
To bring in awareness among all for health and happiness clear
Tragedy is polluting with plastic mounds- to be given up sure
And maintain the pristine blue color of the sea-ever pure!
