Make you mine:
Riding on my dreams
I shall come to meet you
Will take away all your sorrow
Giving you my joys.
The world wishes for me to depart
From your heart
Even I pray God to make
You a part of my life.

Our fellow beings:
Labourers work all day and night
And we take the advantage
Some of them sad to say
Die of starvation before their time.
They work all day for a meagre amount
We think that it is nothing much
But if we imagine ourselves in their place
We will know how much it really is.
They work hard for their food
And sometimes we donâ€™t even care
For a minor mistake, on rant at them
If only we could feel their pain.
They are hungry for food and love
But there is nothing they can do
Knowing this if we disrespect them
And become a monster in return.

A new Nepal:
A complete democracy
This obviously couldnâ€™t
Let us see what goes on
In this new state without the guns.
Stop every single war
Put it aside very, very far
Conserve and build peace
Donâ€™t ever let it be snatched.
Nepal dreams of freedom and peace
For last ten years it has screamed
Success has finally been achieved
Happy faces with thoughts of â€˜Happiest Dayâ€™
Let us stand as united Nepalis
And avoid injuries and war
Let peace prevail for all
In this â€˜New Nepalâ€™.

Our interesting Capital:
â€˜Hatibanâ€™ doesnâ€™t have any elephants
While â€˜Mulpaniâ€™ is not the main source of water
The bridge at â€˜Ratopulâ€™ is not red
And â€˜New Roadâ€™ is made up of the same old roads
â€˜Baluwatarâ€™ doesnâ€™t have sand, except for red mud
â€˜Swargadwariâ€™ is not the gate to heaven
â€˜Bhaktyapulâ€™ is not in the least broken
â€˜Dakshin Dhokaâ€™ is towards the east
â€˜Gairigaunâ€™ is not at all a village
And â€˜Baghbazarâ€™ is not a markat of tigers.

The sun rises again
after it sets
Itâ€™s no use staying glued
to the past
Or in the darkness of
Open those closed
Breathe in a new dayâ€™s
And take your steps with great care
Come out of a lost story
Get energised to solve a new mystery
Step into the world
With new hopes and
Reload your energy
To achieve your desires
Expect the good
Never let past devils
spoil your mood.
We have control over
So, letâ€™s seize the
