Passing Year (Written Last Week) - Poem by Tribhawan Kaul
Passing year, an oxymoronic sweetly bitter folklore
turning life topsy-turvy sometimes happy, sometime bore.
Acts of terrorism, religious fervours, bullying politics
keeping on toes grisly accidents and anguish of masses.
Devastating floods, nuclear proliferation, natural calamity,
environmental degradation and avoidable human tragedy.
Civil societies taking up causes, of eroding mentality
disillusioned commoner clamouring space for individuality.
Soap opera acts overshadowing life on the street
mixed bag of fortunes favouring few, some take their cut neat
Life goes on year after year and this one is no exception
Hope the New Year does not stick to bloody past tradition.

ps: -Dear PH Friends
Let the NEW YEAR 2013 unfold like a lotus bloom heralding decades of happiness, good health and richness in thoughts with pious connotations furthering the cause of brotherhood, peace and love. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 to you and members of your family.
