NOSTALGIA


NOSTALGIA

you can retrieve memory
history records transactions
with your help
we can dig our past
lay hands on every minutest details
you are such a faithful friend

can you get me back
my youth my love
days of dare-devil actions
my village chained by
an artificial border
though we are bound by the same sky
same river flowers love and hatred
where the bells of a church
conchs of a temple and
the azan of a mosque
mingle together in perfect harmony
and purify the air that
we breathe in every moment
till we breathe our last Rajkumar- Jaipur

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
