The righteous shall prosper
By sweat of their brows and prowess,
There are no short-cuts to success !
Equal opportunities for one and all,
And to develop the intellect,
Should at all times be stressed
Without seeking short-cuts to success !
The third class compartments in our trains
Got re-christened as second class,
But the status of our masses,
Got even worse !
Such gimmicks and eye wash
Can no longer hold,
For there are no short-cuts to success
You have always been told !
Let the deserving prosper,
With the right man for the right job,
We are not handicapped or retarded
No concessions are required
To get things started !
For the country to prosper, go down
To the grass roots; genuinely uplifting
The status of the masses, as our single
Holy mission -
Since our forefathers have made adequate
Provisions in our Constitution.
But we have failed to implement or redress,
So now seek short-cuts to success !!
