The Year That Was

Whitefield Rising-a citizen movement
Of volunteers trying to bring improvement
To whom a common goal appealed
Whose vision is a beautiful Whitefield

Garbage & several challenges on our roads
Broken pavements & open storm drains showed
Undeterred, on the streets volunteers have strode
A year on & their dedication has not slowed

The Ugly Indians model pioneered Spot fix
`See the change you want to be’- their great tip!
Kaam Chalu Mooh bandh; work is where hands must dip
Everyone pitches in, absolutely no ego trip.
