The whole country has come together,
As people fast with their countrymen!
Anna Hazare’s fast is getting bigger,
For all our dreams about India, Amen!!
The World Cup win united us,
As people came out on the roads!!
Corruption is something serious,
It is high time public anger explodes!!
It is only an act of sacrifice,
No point in just being angry!
A small act of yours will suffice,
For one day, just stay hungry!!
Make the people around you aware,
And let the corrupt see we are awake!
Let them find a place to hide somewhere,
To their activities let us put a brake!!
It is our country, our money,
Will not let it go down the slope!
Let us all support Annaji fully,
For he is our messenger of hope!!

He is going on a fast unto death,
Anna Hazare has declared!
Let us say with our every breath,
The corrupt will not be spared!!
We demand the Jan Lokpal Bill,
Will not settle for anything less!
Let them not test our will,
It is time our problems they redress!!
All of us have come together,
And fasting on 5th Apr/16th Aug in unity!
Sacrificing our meals for the future,
We demand retribution for the guilty!!
It is the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi,
And the Freedom Park in Bangalore!
Join the fast venue in your city,
To show you care, and will not ignore!!
Or fast at your workplace,
And wear a badge for the cause!
Invite others you see and face,
High time we replace the old laws!!
By fasting in every town and city,
It is time to make a statement!
By taking collective action we,
Will turn this fast into a movement!!

It was a sight to see,
And a moment to experience!
Just a walk, nothing fancy,
When people walked out of conscience!!
Flagged off by a freedom fighter,
We took a route embedded in history!
400 awake citizens walked together,
On a day which was hot and sunny!!
The heat was no match to our will,
For we were united against corruption!
We marched for the Jan Lokpal Bill,
And demanded it for the whole nation!!
There were people across cultures,
Students & professionals, young and old!
Seeking punishment for the vultures,
A new age dawns, this is the threshold!!
Four hours and eleven kilometers,
Posters, slogans and the flying tricolor!
The knife of the money launderers,
Will not be allowed to go any deeper!!
Many joined us on the way,
Knowing the end is far, but in range!
Our country you will not betray,
We walk in peace, but for change!!

Working hard all day,
We all earn whatever we do!
Every month we get our pay,
Where it goes do we have any clue?
A big part is deducted as tax,
To be used to run the country!
While we sit back and relax,
Our money becomes a mystery!!
It is meant to be spent on the needy,
And to build roads, bridges and dams!!
Instead it fills the pockets of the greedy,
Leading to frauds, rackets and scams!!
How long will we be silent,
Till when can we shut our eyes?
Its time to stop acting decent,
Like the phoenix let us all rise!!
Let us be a little mad,
Nothing wrong in being angry!
All our money if we add,
Can feed all who are hungry!!
It is time to rise from our sleep,
And demonstrate we will take no more!
They have burnt our pockets deep,
This is our time to show them the door!!
Together if we all stand,
We can give them a big shock!
So holding hand… Read the rest

Let me tell you a story,
Which is played in every home!
About an angel who lives among us,
Whether it is Delhi, Paris or Rome!!
You may ask who is she,
Who fills our lives with sunshine!
Close your eyes and just say,
She is the wonderful mother of mine!!
For I can bet that,
When you did close your eyes!
What you felt was,
The joy of the strongest of all ties!!
We will always be a child to her,
Though she has seen us grow fivefold!!
If we follow the tears she shed for us,
It will lead to her heart of gold!!
We work all week long,
And always cherish our Sundays!
But the most ungrateful job is hers,
For she choses not to take any off days!!
The wonderful days of childhood,
We would do anything for a recap!
I will tell you one way you could,
Just sleep again in your mother’s lap!!
When God created the world he knew,
Every time he can’t come to… Read the rest

This poem is inspired by an initiative “Gift your Organ” taken by my friend Sameer Dua who has taken this initiative for promoting the cause of Organ Donation.
I live for the bigger perspective,
Yet I enjoy the pleasure of each breath!
But when I see in the long term,
The only thing common is called death!!
I enjoy each and every moment I live,
And I like this journey to end never!
If you ask me my one wish,
I will say I want to live forever!!
To feel all the love and joy in this world,
All I have to do is open my eyes!
After death give mine to someone blind,
For I don’t want to miss the morning sunrise!!
A glance from a girl can turn on my heart,
Makes it beat and tells me I am still alive!
After death give mine to someone in need,
If not mine, another journey it will revive!!
When I die I don’t want you to shed tears,
For still alive are my eyes, heart, and liver!
Instead smile and give them… Read the rest

(As imagined by me from a lower class Indian kid, who is poor, illiterate, without a future, exploited and has no clue what to do. To the average middle class Indian who is educated, employed, and making his mark in the world)
The story of my struggles with life,
Never reaches you!
I will be glad only if you knew,
Maybe just a few!!
The numerous tears I have been shedding,
Never tells my story to you!
Only if you knew that I was the future,
Which was dreamt of by Nehru!!
That I use mud both for playing and hunger,
Never touches you!
Only if you could bring me some toys,
Red, green or blue!!
That I have to work as soon as I can,
Never jolts and scares you!
Only if you knew that millions,
Like me are waiting for a rescue!!
The distance between books and me,
Never might have bothered you!
Only if you could see my dreams,
Of going to school and having a guru!!
The jingling of the songs in my head,Read the rest
You can just rust, or go out all guns blazing,
Maybe sing a song, or paint a painting!
Pick a new passion, or an old hobby to revive,
Just pass thru life, or really feel what it is to be alive?
You can just rust, but do you really want to?
With so many peaks waiting to be conquered by you!
Feel the wind hit you, let you be drenched by rain,
Hop on a bus to nowhere, or catch a train!!
You can just rust, but the whole world awaits you,
There are friends to cherish, and dreams to pursue!
With books to read, and music to hear,
What are you waiting for, oh my dear!!
You can just rust, but do remember,
Time will fly by, and take what it has to offer!
You will get old, and your joints will pain,
So go get it, for this day will not come again!!
You can just rust, but this is your only life,
Open those blinds, or tear the curtains with a knife!
Let the world know, you lived… Read the rest
