No lip service, please
If peace needs trial
Let there be no denial
Each life is precious
The death can not remain continuous
Why mother earth demands sacrifice?
Only from uniform people with promises
To uphold the integrity and dignity of nation
Do we have no sacred feeling or notion?
Each one is using slogan for rhetoric
Is there any relevance or basic?
No tear is shed over soldier’s death?
Only few offer presence to lay wreath
Please stop playing with sentiments
Their sacrifice needs no comment
Why no resolve is made public to root out?
Whatever reason they may have to talk about
What are Gadh chiroli, Jharkhand or chhatisgarh?
Are these places worth for silly martyrdom?
No one thinks about it in holy term
We show only lip sympathy in turn
If our pen can be of any importance
Let us show our solid presence
Let us not play on old sentiments and culture
We need to see stable India and future?
