There were those sad beautiful eyes,
The tilted heads with pink cheeks,
The batting lashes with a tear drop,
And a smile with a curve in the corner....
The hands outreaching to be held,
The ears eager to hear words of love,
Those legs longing to stand tall and strong,
There were those sad empty eyes....
The curtain falls, their faces lit up,
Eyes closed, they dream of flying away,
The smile spreads across, it is so fragile,
In the whirl of the wind, they live their lives....
The bubble bursts, the curtains rise,
They open eyes to find their wings torn,
The cry deep in their heart ever so blue,
The fear whispering, “never dream again".....
They look up, look into the heaven,
Overcast, the turmoil never seems to cease,
Winter so heavy upon their souls,
The lamp of joy flickering so wild....
Pair of hands covers it, it burns unbroken,
It glows stronger, the clouds drift apart,
The sun shines on them, shining ever so bright,
The doors to heaven open up wide....
The angel descends, so pure, so white,
She mends the broken wings, the broken dreams,
She takes their hand, she makes them stand,
She gives them love, gives them all she has....
B.TECH 1ST YEAR
The tender buds in the untended garden, instead of blossoming, wither to the weeds in the eyes of the society. But we in Aasra, care for these buds and help them blossom beautifully.
In the eyes of God, everyone is equal, so why in the society do we see division and disparity??
With the hope of removing this differentiation between fellow souls, I joined Aasra.
Since then I have been going to sector 21, every Saturday evening, I and three of my friends cycle down to meet the kids there. There I teach children in the seventh and eighth standard. Teaching them is great fun ,and their interest is very encouraging .Not only Saturdays, but we also celebrate festivals with them. Be it celebrating Independence Day, distributing sweets on Ganesh Puja or preparing the Rangoli on Diwali, time spent at sector 21, with the sweet smiling faces of kids, is the best time spent, away from home. This helps to work more, help more.
If you want to bring a change, you have to be the change first. So I hope, like I am concerned for them today, the whole world realizes their duty and takes a step forward to help the needy live their dreams...
