Prof.Bhim Singh sends this message to all on the eve of New Year-2015

Happy New Year?

Another year is lost, dawn full of fog’

Destination eloped with shadow of time

Every co-walker asking for the account

of the deeds of the  year  lost.

Account nil, of all those years, I celebrated

With the known and unknown,

From skirts of India to Hanging Gardens of Babylon,

Besieged City of Jerusalem, Egyptian Pyramids,

Crying souls in Hiroshima, first to taste the lightening

Fall of the US Atom Bomb, killing half a million

The US great champion of democracy.

This year too, nothing on record

except, failures and defeats for me, while

killings, shootings  bombs, death & destruction

Every where, innocent children in Schools,

Women drowning in half foot deep waters,

Farmers committing suicides in their farms

Now, again, join you all my friends and critics

To celebrate this day because it

Send me the memory of the Great time

Of the great man, Jesus Christ,

They call Him the Son of God.

I know I have lost one more year

To be taken out of my life, shortening it

By another years only reminding me

That I have year to build bridge of life

With the Ultimate which is still unknown

A mystery, a heave, or hell or God as they call

Faced crucifixion of the tyrants

for the sake of universal Truth!
