POEM: DON’T GIVE UP

Copyright@shravancharitymission

 

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

THIS MY FRIEND IS FOR YOU

THE TRIALS THAT YOU FACE

AND THE DREAMS THAT YOU CHASE

YOU’RE BEHIND IN THE RACE

AND YOU’RE STRAYING FROM YOUR PACE

YOUR MIND IS SCATTERED ALL OVER THE PLACE

AND YOU’RE DESPERATE FOR SPACE

LITTLE DID HE KNOW

THIS IS YOUR TIME TO EMBRACE

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

YOU KNOW WE TEND TO HIDE WHAT’S INSIDE

AND WASTE TIME WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

YET ISNT IT THE KEY TO BELIEVE IN OUR OWN IDENTITY

YOUR PAST BROUGHT YOU HERE

THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGINS

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVEYTHING

SO DON’T SIT HOUR AFTER HOUR

WHILE YOUR TRIBULATIONS TOWER

DON’T FORGET THE COUNTLESS BLESSINGS

EVER RICH YOU HAVE BEEN SHOWERED

FIND YOUR STRENGTHS AND YOUR POWERS

TO RISE ABOVE THE COWARDS

BE LIKE THE FLOWERS

THAT GIVE OFF ITS SCENT

WHEN ITS CRUSHED AND DEVOURED

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

AND I FOUND MYSELF RUNNING FROM CALAMITY

INSANITY TO SANITY

THIS IS A REALITY

THAT WE FORGET

WHO CREATED US AND MOULDED US

AND MADE US HUMAN BEINGS

WITH THE DETAILS AND FASHION OF

DNA AND GENES

WHO GAVE US A MIND TO JUDGE OUR OWN ACTIONS

AND ROUTINES BY ALL MEANS

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

AND YET LIFE CAN BE QUITE A MYSTERY

AND THE KEY TO SUCCESS DOESN’T COME FREE

AND IF YOU BELIEVE THIS IS ALL DECREED

THEN WHAT WILL BE WILL BE

BUT I GUESS NOT EVERYTHING THAT WE WISH FOR

IS NOT ALWAYS GUARANTEED

BUT YOUR EFFORTS WONT BE FRUITLESS

DON’T EVER THINK YOU’RE USELESS

WE ALL SERVE A PURPOSE

SO PLEASE DON’T FEEL HOPELESS

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

AND NO YOU’RE NOT JUST ANOTHER NUMBER

TO BE DISPOSED OF AFTER YOUR MOTHER FATHER SISTER BROTHER FRIEND AND A LOVER

TO BE TRUE TO YOURSELF IS WORTH THE STRUGGLE

ALTHOUGH THE CRITICS MAKE YOU SUFFER

TREES LOOSE THEIR LEAVES

ONLY TO BLOSSOM

BY THE SUMMER

DON’T GIVE UP

DON’T GIVE IN

THERE’S ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVRYTHING

SP REPEL NEGATIVITY WITH POSITIVITY

AND WATCH LIFE BRING EVERY SINGLE POSSIBILITY

AND HAVE AN ATTITUDE

AND IF YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY

THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE MEANT TO DO

DON’T GIVE UP DON’T GIVE IN

THERE IS ALWAYS AN ANSWER TO EVERYTHING

TRIBUTE: COLVIN TALUQDARS COLLEGE, LUCKNOW

Copyright@shravancharitymission

A TRIBUTE TO COLVIN TALUQDARS COLLEGE LUCKNOW

    Sir Auckland Colvin, Lieutenant Governor of the North West Provinces, while functioning as Lieutenant Governor of Avadh and Agra in 1889, conceived the idea of a school with the object of imparting education to the children of the British administrators and the landed aristocracy who were known as Taludars. That’s how this school rooted.

    It is one of the oldest public schools of India. It was established in the year 1889, and has an enrolment of 1400 students and an academic staff of fifty. Located on the peaceful banks of river Gomti. It sprawls over a sixty acre plot. The school colour is blue that depicts tranquility. It has three hostels—Avadh, Anjuman and Hind. Five houses—Ajanta, Nalanda, Sanchi, Taxila and Ujjain.

    It compares well with Rajkumar College, Raipur; Aitchison College, Lahore; and Mayo College, Ajmer. Lord Minto visited Colvin during its grand ‘Durbar Day’ (annual day) in 1908.

COLVIN

(Motto: Noblesse Oblige)

In Lucknawi tehzeeb and fizai Avadh,

Close to the splashes of Gomti,

And … the throbbing vibrations of Lucknow University,

Lies Colvin,

In its glory and aristocracy.

*

Colvin has the glamour,

But without the clamour,

It has the sprawling complex,

But without the imposing edifice.

*

It has the magnificent drive way,

That passes by the hearty hostels,

It has the lush green tennis courts,

And the fields where cricket is played galore.

*

The enclosed swimming pool,

That keeps you cool,

Where the lush green fields,

The racing tracks,

Convey the brass tacks.

*

Colvin resounds …,

The glory of merit,

Peaks of athletics,

March past of NCC,

In all its sincerity.

*

It has the proficiency of teachers,

Alacrity of prefects,

Astuteness of students,

That drives the institution.

*

With IT college … in its territory,

Kailash Hostel … in the locality,

Lucknow University in the vicinity,

And Hanuman Setu in its periphery,

Colvin … educates Lucknow … royally.

*

Can’t forget the chemistry lab,

Adjacent to the bio lab,

Where … one had the crucibles and the beakers,

And the other … dissection trays,

Waiting for the frogs and the cockroaches,

To be waylaid.

*

There was also physics in the syllabus,

With Newton in the atmosphere,

Where mathematics was the giant,

That kept students in the frying pan.

*

And then you had,

Shakespeare’s plays,

Sohan Lal Divedi’s craze,

And British and Mughal tirade.

*

Then there was the cycle stand,

With college canteen … at its command,

With cold drinks and chai,

And samosas and deep fries.

*

The kittenish junior school,

With its knowledgeable crew,

That taught young children,

With the least of rules.

*

And the big boys,

In blue ties …

And white uniforms,

In five houses,

Flocked around,

In those majestic surrounds.

*

And every year … once a year,

Colvin celebrates,

Its ‘Durbar day,’

When old boys gather,

To rekindle their fire.

*

So thanks to Auckland,

For having created Colvin,

With noblesse oblige as the motto,

That drives Colvin … in toto.

**

(Noblesse oblige: Privelege entails responsibility)

POEM: AUTUMN THE KING OF SEASONS

Copyright@shravancharitymission

 

POEM: AUTUMN THE KING OF SEASONS

When summer retires,

Monsoon tires,

Autumn arrives,

Before the winter strikes.

*

Is when the summer gets over,

Monsoon gets slower,

Nights become pleasant,

And days a merriment.

*

It’s time for the harvest,

When farmers fill their pockets,

But then the days begin to get shorter,

And the nights longer.

*

Horizon gets hazy,

Daylight gets dimmer,

Sun changes its line,

Is when darkness multiplies.

*

In the art of poetry,

Autumn strikes the chord of melancholy,

When summer is gone,

And winter is on the horizon.

*

Skies turn grey,

Usable daylight, drops by the day,

Where, makeup of the day,

Changes in the wake,

And night broadens its base.

*

It’s time for jumpers,

As the dawns are chilly,

Mornings are foggy,

Days are smoggy,

And nights are wintry.

*

As I step out of my house,

The air is heavy,

The breeze is frisky,

And where the sun is fussy.

*

All along the meadows,

There are long shadows,

But between the shadows,

There are divine hallows.

*

Autumn sounds like winter’s cousin,

No doubt the favourite of my seasons,

That announces the string of festivals,

And with that the celebrations,

So it indeed is,

The king of all seasons.

*
