The Salute Song Of Mithila- Gajendra Thakur

The flag of Mithila will be hosted in the world
I had seen the mother upset, discontent and criticised
I am desperate, my heart is falling
Being belonging to the land of Vidya
Your grace will be regained again
Having hands of cleverness of intellect and fame
Don’t doubt the victory at all
If Maithili has a short life
Adding the letters I will put my effort on
The letters will be explosive with touch of mine
The flag will not come down, oh mother Mithila!

Face Is Skinny And Name Is Hansmukh Bhai (Happy Man)- Gajendra Thakur

Face Is Skinny And Name Is Hansmukh Bhai (Happy Man)
Face is skinny and name is Hansmukh Bhai (Happy Man)
I had been here for a long time, find some remedy
He had shown me many types of documents
The work would be done till next morning, explained to me again
He smiled while showing me the shortcut way
Face is skinny and name- Hansmukh Bhai (Happy Man)

The Ganges Bridge- Gajendra Thakur

The death of all workers is recalled
Dropping down into the water
Only ten were reported out of fifty deaths
The compensation of the forty missing
Was galloped by the leaders, the contractors and the officers

I am engineer of that bloody bridge
You call me honest
How can I accept the bribe
After seeing all that, oh sir !

Furrow And Bullock - Gajendra Thakur

Mind was lost
I thought employing bulls
About things here and there
I ploughed field with furrow till evening
The bullock was lost, I was seeking all over
Whom can I tell this to
People will laugh at me today
My mind is lost
I swear dear brother

Good Very Good- Gajendra Thakur

The Indian philosophy
Is described in such a way
If something happened well then it’s good
And if something went wrong then also it’s good
Fate in meeting
And for getting by luck
If one gets good then good
And very good if gets bad.

Having Son-Gajendra Thakur

I live in the temple of Ludhiyana
I worship and help people worshipping
You blame me to eat by deceiving people
We live hungry one time in the day in the village
I have blessed ten people to have sons
Five among them were proved
People having daughters forgot me
But those who had sons advertised my name
You blame Mithila Baba to be fraud
Oh you jealous relatives in village!

Caste- Gajendra Thakur

Work was pending in the office
One person was angry at the clerk
“What is your caste? No patience is left now
You have been confusing tens of peoples.”

He had told the name by patting his chest
He stared at the tens of people with confidence
One people of same caste among the crowd said
With the courage, “Don’t say that;
Don’t call by the name of caste, remember that,

My works are also pending but when caste is concerned
I belong to the caste having guts, let the work be delayed.”
