hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)


You should always try to be donor
No joy in remaining as acceptor
Donor always has joy of giving
Acceptor has to do it for surviving

One has upper hand and others not
He has enough to distribute in a lot
Luck has afforded him to donate
Others have woes and only to relate

You should be kind and have lion’s heart
Only hollow words don’t make you smart
You should have sympathy and generosity
Enough resources to sustain and not simple pity

Nature too has enough to give
Lot more to offer and to survive
She can’t be different in nature
World is too dependent on her for future

Donate whole heartedly and forget
Live peacefully and allow others to let
You may have talent and gifted resources
Think of others as lovely and useful forces

No one can survive merely on donation
Neither can it build happy relation
Nor it can over come complete negation
It is simple try and thrust for elevation

It is good to stand for common man
Good feelings may be considered as humane
It is not the amount or quantity that is offered
But how much you felt for others who has suffered?

Charity is not limited to human being alone
Not enough is done to the affected ones in cyclone
Medicines needed for innumerable unknown diseases
Paucity of funds worsens the situation and not eases

Humanity may not die and will definitely survive
All the steps will be taken and efforts to revive
It is not that the donor has only feeling and gesture
Commoner too has to contribute and make it sure

It is rightly said charity begins at home
Many beautiful cities have come up like Rome
Millions might have contributed in their drive
Reality comes only………………
