आओ फिर से दिया जलाये: Lets light the Lamp again: A B Vajpayee अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी

Lets light the Lamp again

There is darkness at the peak of noon

Sun has lost against the shadow

Lets squeeze out the inner darkness from within

Lets re-ignite the extinguished flame again

Lets light the Lamp again

The moment we confused the place to rest as destination

Our aim has washed off our eye-sight

In the materialistic trappings of the present

Lets not forget the tomorrow yet to come

Lets light the Lamp again

The sacrifice is still pending

And the Yajna is incomplete

Surrounded by the obstacles created by our own kins

To make the arm of final victory

The Dhadhichis of today must melt their bone

Lets light the Lamp again

(Dhadhichi was a saint who melted his bones to make arms for religions war as per mythological stories)
