A Chant...


On top of the world...
Our National Anthem is considered as the best national anthem, and the Vedic Hymn: Asotoma sadgamaya, tamosoma jyotirgamaya, mrityorma amritam gamaya, is considered as the best hymn for peace; in that sublime spirit, I script the following in a lighter vein for you all to share.

Lead us from betrayal to trust
Lift us as diamond from below the earth's crust
from insane deeds to ego-free acts
from statistical cover up to truthful facts
from silent approval of wrong to protest for right
from biased judgement to benign verdict
from barren lands to riverside green farms
from loneliness to a pair of loving arms
from lathi and guns to friendly dialogue
from stabbing at the back to a warm hug....

Comment Thank you, Rupradha for your appreciation and greetings. I am deeply distressed by the turbulence and destructions to our natioal properties by the protesting and warring dissidents, and had in mind to write something. I am glad I could do so now.
