Whose 15th August is it?

किसकी है जनवरी, किसका अगस्त है?
कौन यहां सुखी है, कौन यहां मस्त है?

सेठ है, शोषक है, नामी गला-काटू है 
गालियां भी सुनता है, भारी थूक-चाटू है 

चोर है, डाकू है, झूठा-मक्कार है 
कातिल है, छलिया है, लुच्चा-लबार है 

जैसे भी टिकट मिला, जहां भी टिकट मिला 
शासन के घोड़े पर वह भी सवार है 

उसी की जनवरी छब्बीस
उसी का पंद्रह अगस्त है
बाकी सब दुखी है, बाकी सब पस्त है!

किसकी है जनवरी, किसका अगस्त है!
कौन यहां सुखी है, कौन यहां मस्त है!

सेठ ही सुखी है, सेठ ही मस्त है
मंत्री ही सुखी है, मंत्री ही मस्त है
उसी की है जनवरी, उसी का अगस्त है।

Famous Friendship Goal Words

In December 1937, a match between Chelsea & Charlton foot ball clubs at the Stamford Bridge Stadium London was stopped in the 60th minute due to heavy fog. Charlton's legendary goalkeeper Sam Bartram remained unaware and kept on guarding the goal 15 minutes after the game had stopped, as he did not hear referee's whistle bcoz of the crowd behind his goal post. 
He stood there with his arms out stretched & completely focused, looking forward so as not to be surprised by the opponent's shots. 
15 minutes later, when the stadium police approached him & informed him that the match had been abandoned, Sam Bartram said these famous words with great sorrow "how sad that my friends forgot me when I was guarding their goal post.

There are so many players in the field of life whose goal post one defends with enthusiasm and support, but when the situation becomes like a wave of fog, they walk out of field & leave.

Always pay attention to goalkeepers of your life. 

Never abandon the one guarding your goal post.
