Gone are the happy days
When we were the boys
We would play different out door games
And call the girls by names

We would climb a tree
And run with a spree
Pick the neighbors’ guavas
Swim in the canals or rivers

We would watch movies only in the theatres
And visit friends during the holidays
Or spend our time with our relatives
Go to the farms and eat the raw fruits

During the religious festivals
We would gather in the villages
Celebrate them with happiness
And delightful emotions

These days boys stay only indoors
And play only video games
They are glued to the televisions
And do not know the significance of festivals
They watch movies in the home theaters
And watch the live cricket matches

These boys don’t enjoy the beauty of their boyhood
And don’t care for their neighborhood
They don’t eat even the natural food
Their way of living is not at all good
