Don't you remember?



Even during the days of struggle between life and death,
we used to see love in each other's eye
Even during the days of mistrust and dissonance,
we used to see dreams of happiness in each other's eye
All round year - January through December,
Don't you remember?



Those slogans of equality and development
Enthusiasm to change history and people's sentiment
You distributed dreams in the eyes of many,
those speeches of prosperity and all-round improvement
With 'no' bias to any caste and gender,
Don't you remember?

Though, struggle is still around,
I can't see dreams in your eyes now
With 'no' trust and togetherness around,
I can't see happiness in your eyes now

---

Over the death-bed of martyrs,
you created storm of change
but, it seems, you have changed yourself,
it's impossible to escape from people's lens
It's time to act, not to talk; don't think to surrender,
Don't you remember?
