Gold Star - 19,696 Points (17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Old is


The legend says “not all that glitters is gold”
It also says ‘not all braves are bold”
But experience comes from passing of an age
There shall be intense urge to come out from the cage

So adopt the change that is necessary
The degree of wisdom may vary
Yet some goodness can be picked
Some of the old things are very much liked

Old things have its traditional values
We pay the due regards and view
Even old gold has less impurity
It stands above all in terms of quality

Ancient culture is adored still
As its roots are deep real
It stands for tolerance and peace
People were happy and lived at ease

Some of the traditional values are still continued
The respect for guest is still perused
He is given same respect as was in olden days
Even strangers were treated well in so many ways

In modern day, some of the old traditions are discarded
Even though some of the old achievements are respected
Old science still provides some clue in the field
Foreigners have gained a lot and high views are held

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
