Happy New Year

Happy New Year
There is uproar in the world
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
It will be or not,
No body knows.
I think that it is the cry of the human beings on the planet.
Every one wants peace, & happiness but it is like a dream for millions of the people.
In war torn countries happiness is beyond the reach of the people.
Bloodshed, sorrows, & grief have become their fate.
Celebrations on different occasions are like a lotus in a muddy tank.
Every body knows it very well.
Still then he raises such type of slogans like a fashion.
People enjoy on the floor for some moment
& after some time they are bound to bath
in the tank of botherations which is called
“The human –society.”
So the slogan, “Happy new year “is the demand of the society but it is not near the realty.

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
