Ravi Bhatia – TRANSCEND Media Service

On this cold day in the North
And warm days in the South
We celebrated the day of joy and mirth
What day was it Christmas — when the basket of joy was lit
With the New Year knocking at our door
Keep the door shut
Keep the cold out of the poor man’s hut
The festival for the poor and the rich
There should be no hitch
For the season to remain
A day of truth and gain
