COUNTRY : INDIA
THEME : LET ME BREATHE
TITLE : IN SEARCH OF PEACE
In the dearth of peace and compassion ,
Where innocence is debauched under treachery and oppression.
Life is depressed under turmoils and affectation,
Ignorance and illiteracy weaken the progress with contention.
Amidst such a quagmire let me breathe ,
Let me travel afar in search of peace.
In such a bedlam of chauvinists,
Suppressions cling with deceit and vanity like an opportunistic.
Cravings for a recluse to enjoy nature and it’s bliss ,
Excites me and instil a passion to visit Swiss.
How magnificient is the country with its serenity !
How the cliffs and valleys welcome all with its divinity!
Such spectacular scenes can be painted in a canvas ,
And the snow and cedars embrace with affection.
When I will chase the Orioles, Thrushes , Buzzards and the Avocets ,
Life is enveloped in a sanctity with no regrets.
In the mountain forests as I will proceed,
Perhaps the wildlife will amaze me in distinctive feeds.
Cheese fondu and Rosti will mesmerise my taste buds,
The quaint villages , towering castles;
and cosmopolitan cities attract my sensations.
Let me breathe in such a paradise ,
Where nature cradle smiles to a splendid vibe.
