Selected Work
Show love and respect
To all in the happy world
Nature's love perfect!
Universal love
Like nectar from the heaven
Great poets can give!
Divine love unites
Cares not caste, creed and color
Yet man's mind divides!
To promote world peace
Poetry the medium
Poet sings with poise!
Love - life's golden key
That opens Heaven's doors
To all those who see!
Like Siamese twins
Peace and love inseparable
One who promotes wins!
