Janam apne hath mein nahi Marna apne hath mein nahi Per jeewan ko apne tarike se jina apne hath mein hota hai Masti karo muskurate raho Sabke dilo mein jagah banate raho Good Morning Dear

Little keys open big locks
Simple words reflect great thoughts
Your smile can cure heart blocks
So keep on smiling it rocks.

Happy New Year 2012
