Beauty & Peace
All that you tell, all that you sell,
doesn’t make my hair look well.
I always do things ‘the Natural Way’,
obviously the way that saves my day.
Home made shikakai is mom’s special,
her special indeed fills my tiny vessel.
Now that I’m in foreign land,
I miss mom’s favourite.
Went in search of a real substitute,
in the land of no shikakai.
At last found the perfect alternative,
that is so reliable as mom’s hair care tips.
I see mom’s ever handy miracle,
in this far off land of modernity .
It’s called the ‘Dove’ here –
Truly the bird that spreads peace,
adds beauty to my hair now.
thank God I’m not lost in this strange land.
