Respect


The life so beautiful, why to destroy it with wrath
The hypnosis of materialism, leads to wrong path
Thou may be confined to pain, impossible to flee
Straining you deeply, but still face it with a glee
Respect is something you can't get for free

From ground zero you begin, striding to the top
Clearing all the milestones, kept for you to stop
The tests are conducted for your own benchmark
You may win or lose, you can't build Noah's ark
Respect is something you can't get for free

Thou shall find the hidden treasures, not outside
A common place unknown to all, close to you it reside
People's unscrupulous talks keep messing up my mind
They want something in return, to which you are bind
Respect is something you can't get for free 

Earning it requires a patience that of a colossal
Entwined it is, you need to be your own apostle  
It slowly keeps growing on, just take the decree
With roots dug deep below, like that of a tree
Respect is something you can't get for free

Finally, love is arranged........by god!

'Welcome to Melbourne' a voice echoed as the plane landed at the Melbourne airport. There was a hustle and bustle as the passengers started removing their luggage from the cabin compartment. Pankhuri was delighted. She performed all the formalities of arrival, claimed her luggage, hired a taxi and left for the hotel. She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her.

Here is your room card.' He said giving a swipe card to her. 'Thank you, Could you please arrange someone to fetch my luggage to the room?' she asked importantly. 'Sure!' he said.
