आज़ादी

हर १५ अगस्त को गूंज उठते हैं आज़ादी के नारे चारो ओर से। लेकिन ये किसकी, कायकी, कैसी आज़दी? उभर न पाए गरीब, गरीबी से डूब रहे हम अत्याचारो की बाढ़ में। तो फिर ये किसकी, कायकी, कैसी आज़ादी? हां, कुछ लोग समझते हैं ये आज़ादी है उनकी निजी सम्पत्ती […]

A Tribute to Rocco

As a baby you came to a house Soon a home it became for you. You were so very sweet and loving That people were drawn to you. Your twinkling shining eyes spoke a world about you! You scampered all over the house With everyone running after you, but- You […]
