God's Children

The sky is blue
The sun is shining,
Then why is it god,
That i have no food in my plate when iam dining

Why can't there be an end to this cruel plague,
Why do i have to be part of this endless rage,
Why do i have to crawl on the roads, when it is red,
Why can't i still get my loaf of bread...

I love the sound of ringing bells, every hour, every day..
That commotion, those laughs, those cries, those happiness, those punishments, those lunch time games, those bunking classes..
Why can't i have all that my lord..

Poverty and illiteracy has become a big problem in our country, every child, rich or poor, should have the right and access to proper education, food, and clothing. Child labour, should be strictly prohibited, may it be at homes, or on streets. Each day , so many children, die of malnutrition and infections. What is the crime of the poor child.
Organisations like CRY, Akshay Patra, Teach India, Bal janagraha, and many more are doing a wonderful job, by catering to all the needs.. We must support the cause whichever way we can, spread the awareness, help monetarily, do volunteering work, spend some time with the children, encourage education amongst chidren in neighbourhood.
All these efforts, can build us a better tomorrow.

For You , Mom & Dad !!

For a long time, ive been thinking of writing something for my mom and dad. Today is the occasion, today is my Dad's birthday.

When i was small and little
Scared and weak, thin and brittle,
U were there by my side to hold my hand
Walk me down the dangerous lanes
Amidst all the unfriendly plains
U were there for me
U were there, Mom and Dad.

When i used to get lost in the crowds
Wandering in the cluster of tall moving people
Scared and insecure, searching for some home,
Looking for those moist soft hands.
Hugging me and holding me
And saying Its All right
U were there for me, Mom

When I was sad, dejected, failed
When i though all my options were derailed,
When confidence had hit a road block,
There was no one to lift me off the dock,
U were there for me, Dad
U were there to motivate me,
made me believe in myself,
made me realize my talents.
U were there for me, Dad.

U have always been a role model for me,
Always been the people,
I most look upto.
U were always been the people,
I care more than anything.
U were always been the people,
I love more than anything.

I want to promise u Mom & Dad
I will always be beside u, when u need me.
I will always care for u, how much ever it takes.
I will always be there to hold ur hands
when u need my help.
I will always be there to listen to u.
And I would consider myself really lucky,
If I can become, half the person, what u are.
So that hopefully one day, Mom and Dad, u can proudly say he is our son !!!!!

Feed a Child, Now is the time to act - Akshay Patra

Inspired by Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, when he saw small kids fighting with dogs for scrap of food.  he began the initiative to see that no child in india goes hungry, Akshay patra started with a mid-day meal program in bangalore, feeding 1500 schools.
Since then they have provided mid day meals in many government and government aided schools across different states in India. 
Ministry of Human resources and development of Government of india is supporting the organization since 2003. Now they feed almost 1.2 million children daily with the help of financial support from different individuals and organization. 
Their mission is to reach 5 million children by the year 2020. Its a noble cause which they are trying to achieve with the help of people like us. India is suffering from poverty since many years, Education and good nutrition are the key to eliminating poverty. 
We all live in our busy worlds, time is a big factor.we dont have time for ourselves or for our family or for anything we love. All of us just keep preaching, we want to do something good for people, or give something back to the society. 
Heres ur chance, small or big, give something to keep the mission alive . 
Make ur donations here 

Thanks :)
