Gold Star - 23,623 Points (17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Lines are drawn

It is ignition with spark
Long drawn battle with very good start
No one thought of its long impact
It was noble and hilarious act

Young and old all in same race
Long aspirations and worry on the face
What country would get in return?
It is our duty to make the tide turn

The tempo has not died down
The battle lines are drawn
Come what may with next move
The public has point and strength to prove

Mind well it is popular will and fight
Everything g has gone with it very right
The wish and anger has given long wait
Now it has to meet the aspirations and its fate

They have fooled under the name of liberty
Democracy is allowed to die with pity
Rules are meant only for suppression
They enjoy complete facilities with concession

Not a day passes of without any scam
Billions are swindled and caught in cam
Yet no action for the want of proof
The judiciary is alone and aloof

Future may speak for its action
Public may resurface with reaction
This is just a trailer and may initiate strong move
Nothing stands good in public eyes to prove

Gandhian principles stand like rock even today
It has shown courage and glorious way
The tide and turn can be favored in public interest
The resistance offered is unique and best

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
