There was a King

Once there was a king,

Who was trapped in his own jail.

Because he had slaved his people,

Now was experiencing sorrow and pain.

For his pride, people had to pay.

In his ginormous kingdom,

Only rich could have a say.

People said that,

He was not in his right mind,

But the truth was that,

The power had made him blind.

He was cruel,

When he was high.

After seeing their pain,

He only gave a sigh.

While he was enjoying lying on his comfortable bed,

His people were dying, starving to death.

And then, his pride turned back on him,

He realised his mistakes.

But it was to late,

He surrendered to his fate.

He experienced their pain,

He was torched into flame.

He begged for mercy,

But had only himself to blame.

The India of my dreams!

In the India of my dreams,

Pollution would be the least.

Every place would be clean and green.

Technology would be enhanced.

In the India of my dreams,

Education would be given to everybody,

Discrimination would not be there by any means,

Crime would be no more.

In the India of my dreams,

There would be no corruption in the country,

No one would die from starvation due to poverty,

Women would be able to go out freely,

Without any fear,

In the India of my dreams.

In the India of my dreams,

Everyone would be healthy,

There would be unity and equality.

There would be jobs for everybody

In the India of my dreams.

A Happy School!

A group of happy children'

with hearts open and cool

A faculty of impressive teachers

Together build a happy school

Sitting tired in the class

when someone comes to say,

"friend will you play with me

till the teacher comes our way?

Planning for a day, full of fun,

waiting......waiting....

the clock goes tick-tick, tick-tick, tick

how much to wait more,

for our school picnic

Hiding under the bench,

with cards and bouquets

the moment the teacher enters,

Boom! Happy teachers day

The teacher is teaching

Some are listening, some getting bored

planning to play games

checking their score..

All these things

are a part of our childhood

or in simple language we can say

they are the reason for a happy school
