Vaisakhi and Punjab

This post is not meant to force any issues. Just simple words and simplest motivation :)

                                                                                                   This is the air which I breath first;
                                                                                  This is the soil that gave me food that I ate;

This is the water which appeased my thirst;
This is the place that gave me my heart-beat.
This is my land beloved, Motherland vivid;
This is where I get my mother-tongue legit.
This is my home, my ancestors came from;
Even an inch of it, I cannot hand,
Nor spare it to an alien for a sum;
This is my home, my heaven!

Punjab-The land where five rivers flow,
A hub of diverse culture in glow,
The soil where arduous farmers crop,
A heart of religious tolerance amongest the mop.

A state that has won laurels, both east and west,
Revolution of young generation already in vogue,
Wait for years and there will be an other score,
The progress will be more and more.

Where the elders are respected,
And the young ones are adored,
We are all bonded to each other,
With love, culture, festivals and folklore.

Raised in the land of great souls,
We are simple and naive yet in modern role.
In every nook and corner of the world,
Warmth of a punjabi is well known.

Wishing everyone prosperity this Baisakhi
