Karam kar dije
The world needs prayers, and who else can call out to the Gods better than children?
Children; we need them, the world needs them, and yes, they need us. They need us to be disciplined, non-violent and understanding. Nothing else.
This bandish in Raag Desh calls out to Khwaja Moinuddeen to protect each one of us in times of misery and yes, in happiness too.
This prayer is from them, the children, to you and me, to help us create a better world for each other.
