This is a damage control exercise our great culture to uphold

Some say time has changed not time, we have changed
There are still 24 hours in a day but in new gadgets lost
We stop doing anything except playing games on phone
Not envisaged that with no accident will be in total loss

Though living a luxury life but forgot our real Big Boss
Jewel of life what used to have is no more, we are flop
Can't find anything like that, believe me we're exposed
When think in deep, in brain & character are cross road

Almost gave up all the norms but nobody is there to note
Situation took an ugly turn; danger level water is to cross
Since a longtime it's swarming no use of spillway to unlock
Need a strong motivational campaign revert back to God?

Who has to do what, have no time, vigorously have to uphold
Divert them back to normal as fast as you can with no remorse
Support them by all means so they feel at home with all norms
This is a damage control exercise our great culture to uphold

I am relaxed, and taking a sigh of relief with my fingers cross
Have succeeded in bringing them back to fold situation to cope
When see resumption of social activities I'm glad & thank God
Soon we see our glorious culture will be back like a shiny gold.
