Remembering Lennon..

John Lennon got shot on 8th Dec 1980. Not only was he the most loved and the most (arguably) talented of The Beatles, he had that different level of humility which very few posses. I am aware that loving Lennon has long since become a cliché, but I can’t help it. His ‘Imagine’, along with ‘Where mind is without fear..’ by Tagore and ‘If’ by Kipling are the most inspiring poems I’ve ever read. (I consider Lennon a far greater poet than a musician). The magic of ‘Imagine’ is contagious. The more you imagine, the more you believe. To the man who dared to Imagine..And yes, he is the only one...


IMAGINE 
Imagine there's no Heaven 
It's easy if you try 
No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today 

Imagine there's no countries 
It isn't hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will live as one 
                - John Lennon
