India gives a whole hearted Mandate for Change. India Will Rise once again soon ...To Be the Change that we want to see..

India will Rise, once again….  soon!

And what an astounding, thumping, mind boggling victory of sheer numbers and a resounding success for Our Indian Democracy!! A clean straightforward majority and a clear Mandate for Narendra Modi andBharatiya Janata Party (BJP) 'Of the people, by the people and for the people of India' ! For once, I am hopeful for India to Rise once again and spear head towards progress and growth and to be all that each Indian could be!!

I am sure he will deliver all this and more through the collective efforts of all the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)workers ...
 India will Rise once again under Narendra Modi 's strong able Leadership....

It takes sheer courage, determination and nerves of steel to get such a whole hearted majority such as the historical one today, especially in sucha vast, diverse Democracy as ours in India... Yet, the waves of Change has swept the masses and the tides will carry our Ships onto Lands unexplored yet .... making undelible marks of our own ... And the World is already cognizant of the fact that India is slowly and surely Rising with Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Government at its helm.... Challenges are a plenty and I'm sure they will be delivered ..... After all one does need time to undo the errors of decades .... yes, I feel strongly about this and sad sometimes that each one of us Indians has yet to cross so many hurdles; let them be those of hunger, poverty, education or even basic sanitation and hygiene .... But at least the lamps have been lit by millions of Indians who gave their clear mandate .... voting for Change, voting for Hope, voting for Progressive Development .... And They ALL Won!!  Today, all Indian people I feel have been joined together by one common thread and that's National pride and belonging and a certain hope and faith .... why then are so many Indians here and abroad glued onto TV sets, talking only about the Results where ever they are- at home, at work or even in the market place or at a local vegetable vendor's ! Yes, India Will Rise, once again ... soon ....!!

'True Life' - a poem from my book 'From the Silence Within'

"True Life"  10th May' 2000  
(Published in my book 'From the Silence Within' available in Crossword and via  Amazon, uRead websites.

Will I mark my time unheard, unwept, unsung?
Will I like all the others before me, simply be washed ashore?
Or will I ride over the currents; and the striking waves.
Plummeting, pummeling against jarring rocks.
Reach out onto distant lands and shores.

I can feel the tide sweeping over the sand.
Dragging me, drowning me at times.
Will I manage to get a foothold?
Will I be able to swim my way through?

Fleeting thoughts of rest and heavens beckon me.
But how can I lie down, while so much is yet to be accomplished ?
And those deep blue seas no longer fill me with awe.
For I know I have to dive deep down below.

Swimming, diving, searching the yawning depths.
I am sure one day I’ll find those precious quaint pearls.
And living, swimming; managing to keep afloat.
I realize what this means to be of True Life …
