Research Work – A Slum Visit !

Today our college’s society – Enactus went to a slum for some research work trying to know more about the residents’ lives , the difficulties faced by them and the relief given to them by the government .

It was an enriching experience and a unique one ! Talking to these people who were born in these situations and have not been able to fully get out if it was something else . One would think these people would be cursing life and not be happy but it was the exact opposite . People were earning adequate income to run their family , children went to schools and were happy , some aspire to be doctors .

There obviously were some problems like clean water in some places and children landing into drugs but the want for improvement and hope was seen in their eyes .

Can we get back?

I’m sorry , yeah
But I just couldn’t let my feelings inside .
And I didn’t know how I could say it right .
Can we just get back to how we were like , back then
I hope we’ll be alright !

I’m sorry , yeah
But I just couldn’t see you feel not alright .
And I didn’t know how I could make it right .
I am just sorry…


I’ve been waiting for so long ,

at least now just please answer me .

Have I done anything wrong ?

put me out of this whole misery .


I was there when you needed ,

no one else came when you pleaded .

I was there standing next to you ,

even when you lost all hope and felt you were defeated .
