essence of the poem.
All in all, the Dipsites once again carved a niche by proving that “Happiness lies in
giving than in receiving”.
The poem composed by RITIKA :
Happy life to me!
I want nothing,
Because life has given a lot to me,
I’m the happiest person on earth.
What God doesn’t give to all
He gives it to me.
I’m so happy that I’m so lucky.
Why God, sometimes I feel you are so partial,
When you give nothing to others
And everything to me.
Please God, give something to others from me,
Give them what they need,
And this is what I want,
The most in my life!
