Changing Times

The nest That you built With your heart With your efforts Maybe no longer suits you Maybe inappropriate to your needs As the times are changing A guest You need to be  In another nest That was on your way That suits you That comforts you Though you never built it You never cherish for it As the times are changing You need to flip your page in history We can’t stick to one forever…

Fresh Start

Supreme sacrifice

How can and in what way we value A Jawan’s sacrifice: Who goes to border knowing the odds Knowing that his life is full of thorns Knowing that his family was there behind Waiting for him  Parting from him Praying for him But only with one patriotic thought  Burbling all over the nerves That I am born to serve the Nation That I am born to sacrifice for my country Settings aside all the comforts …
