Remember Friends,
The World is One

During the initial days of Lockdown someone shared the above English song on the Social Media which I enjoyed the most. I do not know the name of the poet but it is a remarkable piece of English poetry which has a message for the world audience. This is also perhaps the only English song sung by the legendary singer Mohammad Rafi who is reported to have sung it at the United Nations in the 70s. Apart from the valuable message it contains, supplementing it with one of the most famous melody tunes of the past times has added to its beauty manifold. Mohammad Rafi has done full justice to the poetry by rendering it in such a way that the listener cannot afford to ignore it but praise the poet as well as the singer.

This English song in today’s special circumstances of COVID19 Pandemic has further added lot of value to the message it contains. Let us all everywhere in the world contribute our share to promote love, harmony, peace among the people all over the world. Let us put an end to the Wars and make it a peaceful world worth living. If you find a chance, do listen to this song and enjoy it. Here is the full text of the Song for you to enjoy:

Remember Friends the World is one
Although we hail from different lands,
We share one earth and sky and sun
Remember friends the world is one
We want all enmity to cease,
Oh we want peace we all want peace,
We want no hate , we want no strife
Since we were born for love and life
Come let us chant while joining hands,
We shall not rest till wars are done
Remember friends the world is one.
Although we hail from different lands,
We share one earth, and sky and sun
Remember friends the world is one
We have matured to dream and build,
We want our dreams to be fulfilled
We have come here to dream and plan.
A world of joy and hope for man
A world his dignity demands,
A world that we shall see begun
Remember friends the world is one,
Although we hail from different lands,
We share one earth, and sky and sun
Remember friends the word is one.
