दिल की गहराइयाँ
दिल की गहराइयों में राज़ छुपाकर रखना ।
किताबों के पन्नों में मेरा नाम छुपाकर रखना ।
आँसू की कीमत बड़ी अनमोल होती हैं
इन्हे पलकों में छुपाकर रखना
देख न सके इन गहराइयों को कोई कभी
चेहरे पर वो मुस्कान सजाकर रखना
लाख चेहरे बनाए दुनिया मगर
ऐ भानु चेहरे पर नकाब ही सही ।
हँसी का सेहरा सजाए रखना ,
हँसने को तो सभी हँसते है हँसी में ,
किसी के दुख में रोने का जज़्बा रखना ।
कश्तिया तो कई डूब जाती है मझधार में
तूफानों से पार निकलने का दम रखना ।
ये तो जीवन के चार - पाँच दिन है ,
जीवन को जीवन की तरह जिन्दा रखना ।
क्या फर्क पड़ता है कोई साथ तुम्हारे
पर तुम हर किसी के कंधे पर हाथ रखना ।

AIR POLLUTION
Air is one of the most important thing that is required to survive. We breathe air thousands and millions of time in a day. If we will not breathe a single minute then we will die. The pollution of air is due to over use of vehicles, etc. had led to this air being polluted. The pollution of air is  a major problem rising all around the world. It is not only causing damage to environment but also causing a number of disease and major damage to National heritages and monuments. It is tit for tat, today we are not caring for environment but soon a day will come when environment will laugh on us and will not care for us. So it is better that we change with time otherwise time will change us. We should at least plant one tree in a year and care for it. I guarantee that soon 121 crore people of India will give rise to 121 crore trees in an year which will not only free us from pollution but also will give us fruits, paper, etc. So we should understand our duties and take steps towards it to save mother Earth and humanity.

THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK
Three things never come back, the wasted time, neglected opportunities and spoken words. So think twice and act thrice.
Success is a vehicle which moves on the wheel name. But the journey is impossible without the fuel name.
If a drop of water falls in a lake it has no identity but if it falls on a flower it shines like a pearl. So choose best place to shine.
If you want peace, do not find fault with others, rather see your own faults. Learn to make the world your own No one is a stranger, the whole world is your own.
Just as gold is tested by fire, in the same way a great man is tested by difficulties.
