The Spirit Of Mumbai

On Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s birth anniversary, who died protecting his fellow commando and countrymen, an ode to the spirit of Mumbai. And Major Unni’s courage.
Thank You Sir, you continue to inspire.

Paranoia abound
Bullet shells all around
Blood stained walls stifling shouts and screams
Telling stories of unheard prayers and distant dreams.
Every eye bleeds a tear
Every soul houses a fear
Every hope now broken and bereaved
Every heart now incorrigibly aggrieved.
This pain would remain for years to come
Rendering the city temporarily numb
But the spirit of Mumbai refuses to die
It remains sacrosanct after the ordeals gone by.

Bismil Ka Sandesha

Inquilaabi iraada hai,
Watan se waqf karne ka vaada hai
Desh par shaheed hue har naujawaan ne dekhe the jo sapne,
Ab ho chukke woh saare apne

Oh firangiyon ke pujaari, tum bhi kar lo thodi sharam,
Tiranga maang raha sarfaroshi,
Kar lo poora apna dharam

Maa ke aanchal pe jo padhe kuch daag hai
Unhe mitaane ki dil mein sulag rahi aag hai

Bhagat, Azad, Bismil, Ashfaq keh rahe,
Ab jo bhi hain ummeedein,
Tumse hi woh baaki hain.
