Man in those days walked miles together with nice health
Evolution came gradually -fashion settled- wealth
Of Vehicles-cart-to rickshaws to cycles to fast moving
Two and Four wheelers-made to give up road walking!
Today World Car Free Day September twenty second,
To encourages motorists to give up their cars for a day.
The event “promotes improvement of “Public transport”
Cycling and “Walking”where job and shopping nearer!
For short trips in cities, we reach Quicker using bicycle than
Car!Fuel is saved in the crisis caused, pollution avoided!
Health improves rightly Delhi Government banned to some extent
Let us teach our wards walk to schools up to kilometers five!
In the fast changing world, where is the time to walk to work?
Work-including walk for studying-affluent we are-
Send our wards to school hundred meters away in a car
Or scooter or school van-making the boy or girl obese!
If not walking to work-school it can be cycling at least
May look ridiculous today as the days are gone and lost
When the work spot was not very very far but quite near
But today kilometers and kilometers away-clear!
Walking to work, who does that anymore? We know with all
The rushing around we have to do stopping alarm bell
Before crawling out of bed and getting on time in the car
Who has time to WALK to work? Yet walking to work sure
Helps for keeping health physical and emotional quiet pure
But that health of the planet as a whole-let us resolve this day
To walk-make our wards walk to nearby school at least or cycle!
Safety indeed is the natural instinct of all living beings
Alas!all are of course victims some time or other; we are seeing
Of accidents at home or roads, factories and offices misfortune
“Safety, Health and Environment (SHE)” movement serious brings fortune!
Many times we fall victims due to our own awful negligence
Equally horrible it is when due to our own ignorance
Young or old, man or woman, humans or animals all fall victims sure
Efforts are needed to educate and bring in awareness pure!
“National Safety Day is today” to make conscious efforts
By all to minimize accidents- if not avoid in total – to bear fruits
Let every one take the pledge:”I solemnly affirm that I Rededicate
Myself to the cause of safety, health and protection of environment”.
Birds and animals walk, fly swim according to HIS creation
All cannot do all the three -peculiarity in HIS action;
Man also the creation of the Omnipotent, Omniscient
Can do wonderfully all the three thanks to the Omnipresent!
A time was there when he was living like animals in forests
Loitering here and there on his feet and feet alone-honest
Culture, civilization, knowledge, learning-all made difference
Today we are worried about his safety on sufferance!
Accidents galore-in water, in the air and on the road
Pity thanks to explosion in population and vehicles broad;
Man caught in more by the fault of others than his own self sure
Roads becoming more and more unsafe than other modes pure!
ROAD SAFETY WEEK is this to make the people aware of dangers
Habits to be formed right from the childhood on following road rules
Parents, schools and social organizations have to play a role
Make roads safe for the walkers and vehicle users as a whole!
