Bye- Bye 2019

The year 2019 is fading out,
    It was eventful, no doubt,
 
In Pulwama, CRPF men breathed their last,
    When a suicide bomber car perished them in a blast,
 
With air strike, India retaliated,
    Jaish and LeT camps in Balakot were decimated,
 
Modi held reigns again,
   It was UPA’s loss, NDA’s gain,
 
In ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, India lost the race,
   England emerged the winner with brave face,
 
 Almost entire country, faced heavy rains,
    Wet spell continued with unseasonal rains,
 
 Crops destroyed, food production went out of gear,
    Prices of essentials onion brought tears,
 
Article 370 was out, making J & K full part of India,
    People rejoiced Pan-India,
 
 But CAA/NRC put country on the boil,
     Anti-protests led to turmoil,
 
Country continued to face slow down,
      Economy slumped and GDP came down,
 
The five trillion dollar is Modi’ mission,
       But it is beset with many omissions,
 
Many acts were brought to dispel eve’s fear,
       But “Nirbhayas” continued to be hounded by fear,
 
Space sector went into Mission 2.0 mode bringing cheers,
      But joy subsided when “Vikram Lander” went out of gear,
 
Pak violated cease fire 2100 times and has continued to strike,
       India wonders whether Pak is inviting one more “surgical strike”,
 
 Let’s hope that the leap year 2020,
      will be full of sparkle and gaiety.
