मेरा रंग दे बसंती चोला 

मेरा रंग दे बसंती चोला, मेरा रंग दे

मेरा रंग दे बसंती चोला ओये, रंग दे बसंती चोला
माये रंग दे बसंती चोला 

दम निकले इस देश की खातिर बस इतना अरमान है
एक बार इस राह में मरना सौ जन्मों के समान है
देख के वीरों की क़ुरबानी अपना दिल भी बोला
मेरा रंग दे…

जिस चोले को पहन शिवाजी खेले अपनी जान पे
जिसे पहन झांसी की रानी मिट गई अपनी आन पे
आज उसी को पहन के निकला, पहन के निकला
आज उसी को पहन के निकला, हम मस्तों का टोला
मेरा रंग दे…

A wing and a prayer

Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected

  Through prayers to God, we feel connected

            Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove

    Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love

      Wings of a jet plane provide steady flight

   I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight

   Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free

    And free from this monster is what I pray you’ll soon be

   Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest

    We’re spreading our prayers that you’ll always be Blessed

 Go fight and win this battle you didn’t start

  On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart

As you travel through life 

As you travel through life there are always those times 

When decisions just have to be made, 
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce, 
And the rain seems to soak your parade. 

There are some situations where all you can do 
Is simply let go and move on, 
Gather your courage and choose a direction 
That carries you toward a new dawn. 

So pack up your troubles and take a step forward – 
The process of change can be tough, 
But think about all the excitement ahead 

There might be adventures you never imagined 
Just waiting around the next bend, 
And wishes and dreams just about to come true 
In ways you can’t yet comprehend! 

Perhaps you’ll find friendships 
that spring from new things 
As you challenge your status quo, 
And learn there are so many options in life, 

Perhaps you’ll go places you never expected 
And see things that you’ve never seen, 
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds 
And wonderful spots in between! 

Perhaps you’ll find warmth and affection and caring 
And somebody special who’s there 
To help you stay cantered and listen with interest 
To stories and feelings you share. 

Perhaps you’ll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do, 
And believe that whatever decisions you make, 
They’ll be the right choices for you. 

So keep putting one foot in front of the other, 
And taking your life day by day… 
There’s a brighter tomorrow that’s just down the road – 
Don’t look back! You’re not going that way! 

Freedom

Bird in a cage

We Set free

Soaring in the sky…

Freedom

All cherish

Reaching a new high

Statue of Liberty’s

Raised torch of hope

Liberty Bell

Sending chimes

From years gone by

Iconic symbols

Of freedom and peace

Truthful path of ahimsa

Mahatma Gandhi laid

Relentless effort and passion

Nelson Mandela made

Nations greet each

Stalwart of freedom

We all seem to devalue

What we have in hand…

Freedom’s duty

And responsibility

Freedom’s precious

Let’s not forget

Protect thy freedom

Also protect others

No control !!!

I can’t control it. 

I can’t contain it.
I’m lost within it.
I’m not mistaken.
Every little thing I do it hurts.
Every little thing I say it burns.
Every little thing I do won’t fade away….
I’m so lost in a dark abyss.
Have no way to escape from it.
What in the world am I gonna do….
I can’t control it.
I can’t contain. 
So much trouble,
Inside my brain.
I’ve got nooo control.
I’ve got nooo control.
Help me from my soul.
Cause I’ve got no control.
What in this life did I do to deserve,
Show ’em how I care,  show them what their worth.
While no one ever was even there for me….
Spent my whole life,  tryna do some good.
Had a great time like I knew I should.
Little did I know that would all soon change….
And now I’ve got nooo control.
Ya i have lost aall control.
Please save me from my soul.

Cause now I’ve got nooo control…

Citylights 


This evening, as I travel

Halfway across the city
With the gentle drops of rain
Kissing the window
Reflecting the numerous lights
Of the buzzing town

Lights that stand atop silver poles 
Lights that guide speeding vehicles 
Lights of skyscrapers and of humble huts
I gaze up at the embracing sky 
With just a handful of stars 
Smiling mockingly at the land below 

Undiminishing and overpowering 
I can’t look away as they whisper 
And I realise 
They are the truth 
And all that I  see before me;
The enticing shine
Are mere, blatant lies
Before the glow of the universe 
Before the stardust that makes us, us

The river singing

The river tumbles onwards to the sea, 

And rushes, racing over rocks and stones, 
And boulders, branches, pebbles, sand and scree, 
Singing so many melodies to me, 
In whispering notes and thunderous roaring tones. 

Music that lingers in the ears and mind, 
Soothing confusing thoughts that come my way, 
Easing all stress, so my spirit is resigned, 
To watching its water ripple, swirl, glide and wind, 
And giving a soft contentment to my day. 

Always there, this river, which is never still, 
And every night and day, how strong it flows, 
Into each pool, each inlet and each new rill, 
It does, my thirsty soul, with pleasure fill, 
And sets my thoughts on peace, and my ‘being’ glows
