    Thieves are growing and the economy shrinks. Ache din.
    All big talks is going on with wearing suit boots travelling around the world. It is sad youngers are struggling for daily bread and finally start stealing for quick bucks for survival. These youngster start working for sure there will be less crime

    ಒಂದು ಕಡೆ ಕೆಲಸ ವಿಲ್ಲ
    ಹೊಟ್ಟೆಯ ಹಸಿವು ನಿಲ್ಲುವುದಿಲ್ಲ
    ಇನ್ನೊಂದು ಕಡೆ ಕಂಪೆನಿಗಳು ಮುಚ್ಚುತ್ತಿವೆ
    ಕೇಳುವವರು ಯಾರು ಇಲ್ಲ
    ಕಳ್ಳತನ ಹೆಚ್ಚುತ್ತಿದೆ
    ತಡೆಯುವವರು ಯಾರು ಇಲ್ಲ
    ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಮಲಗುವ ಆಲೋಚನೆಯಲಿದೆ
    ಭರವಸೆ ನೀಡಿದವರು ಊರು ಸುತ್ತಿ ಮಲಗಿ ಗೊರಕೆ ಹೊಡೆಯುತ್ತಿದ್ದರೆ

    ಅಚ್ಛೇ ದಿನ್ ಆಶಯಧಲ್ಲಿ
    ದೇಶವು ಬಡವಾಗುತಿಧೆ
    ನಿರುದ್ಯೋಗ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಯೂ ದಿನದಿಂಧ ದಿನಕ್ಕೆ
    ಅನಿರ್ಬಂಧ ವಾಗುತಿಧೆ
    ಕಪ್ಪು ಹಣವು ಇನ್ನು ಬಡವರ ಕಾತೆಗೆ ಬರಲಿಲ್ಲ
    ಗೋವಿನ ಹೆಸರಲ್ಲಿ ದೇಶಧಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಜಕೀಯವಾಗುತಿಧೆ
    ದೇವರೇ ನಮ್ಮ ದೇಶವು ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಸಾಗುತಿಧೆ !
    ನೀನೆ ನಮಗೆ ಗತಿ
    ದಾರಿಯನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸಯ್ಯ
