3. KADAM MILA KAR CHALNA HOGA
How many of you know that the 10th PM of India, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee has penned down a number of poems, and each one worthy enough to excite and motivate you. It’s said that after the dark period of emergency in India(1975) ended in 1977 and he came out of jail and started delivering his speech, the public clapped for 6 minutes non stop in his single sentence delivery. Here are some of the lines of the poem :
Well this was something fiery!
4. Koshish karne waalon ki kabhi haar nahi hoti
Now this one is a classic and one of the most recited poems of all times. Why so? Because it sends the listener into a trance, every time! Shri Harivansh Rai Bacchan ji is total love! This poem talks about success coming to those who never give up. He asks us to take failure as a challenge and not leave the battlefield till the war is not won. For – failure and success are just benchmarks. Let’s leave this benchmarks aside and just not give up till it is done! All you need is courage:

5. Tu khud ki khoj mein nikal
If you’ve watched the movie ‘Pink’, then you must have got goosebumps by this poem recited by none other than Mr. Amitabh Bachchan at the end. This poem talks about self introspection and discovery on the way to finding your purpose. Although written keeping women in mind, I believe it appeals to every one out there who is looking for their purpose. You are not timid, inconsequential. You are the magic, the grandness, the magnanimity of life itself. Just see who you truly are! Wonderful, beautiful and an extremely inspiring poem this is :
Watch Pink to listen this in Amitabh Bachchan’s charismetic voice.
6. Badhe Chalo Badhe Chalo
This one too, talks about the walk of life, the never ending walk. Our lives are nothing but journeys, that will probably not even end in death. Poet Sohan Lal Dwivedi captures that wonderfully in this poem that urges us to not abandon the walk, irrespective of seasons, terrains and upheavals of life. A must must read, for those times when even a step seems like a massive effort. Presenting few lines here for you :
Another one in the list…
7. Hai Andheri Raat Par
This one is for those who are trapped by their memorable past and are now depressed about how the present has turned out to be. Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachhan, beautifully, makes us remember our good old days, and then suddenly poses a question to us that why can’t we be happy right now also? Because, there’s never a bad time to start a good thing.

Isn’t this what we needed?
