Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can Set You free

Beautiful lines about HOPE from the film The Shawshank Redemption

Andy: There the world that aren't made out of stone. There’s something......inside......that they can't get to......that they can't touch. That's yours.
Red: What are you talking about?
Andy: Hope.
Red: Hope??
Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing.
Hope can drive a man insane. It’s got no use on the inside.
Red: Hope is a good thing...Maybe the best of things.
And no good thing ever dies.
Red: I hope I can make it across the border.
I hope to see my friend and shake his hand.
I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams.
I hope….

A Midsummer’s night dream

             A Midsummer’s night dream 
                 The stars to winkle
                 its eyes in dizziness,

          The silvery moon to Grace the occasion;
          and to spread its aroma around.

                 The sporadic cool breeze
                 to whisper its secrets in melody;
                 The misty air which seems like
                  celestial damsel spreading her drape.
                  Silently I moved the curtain veils off;
                  Enjoyed it till the dawn.

                  My sleep, I guess, the damsel stole;
                  Until she lifted herself up towards the heaven.

India, a garden

India is a garden,
Hundred crores are laden.

Different regions and different religions,
Different castes and different colors;
All like the colors of the garden,
All like the flowers of the garden.

Gandhi, Buddha, born in this land,
And I’m proud to live in this sand.

And I have a vision,
A vision with a passion;
About the country’s might
To the Everest’s height

And in this garden let us bloom
To move away the world’s gloom;

And spread our eternal fragrance...
