Conclusion: Before concluding this reports , I humbly say-
“Aasma me tare kitne, yeh mujhe nehi dekhna
Jamin par taro ko aasma ke sapne dikhana he,
Dhrub aur parsuram banker, raja ka dhwaja nehi udana
Lekin karan ko kundal, kabach, eklavya ko aangutha yapas dena he.
Jeewan jitna hi pal ka ho , sirf bachho ke liye yaha jina he”
