“Annihilate like a power-monger
We people are sufferer

Please give up cruelty
Come! with a renowned vigour
Be a preserver.”

Its only through loving the suffering humanity.” (Love)

It seems true to the deeds we do
Everytime morality must we follow.” (Morality)

We are eagerly waiting for you.” (New Year! Ushering of newness)
