More than meets the eye

Song I wrote (without the melody yet) at the songwriting club at the Majestic. 

More than meets the eye
---
Blue glory, the open skies
Beckoning.
Clouds majestic, farthest heights
Beckoning.

I see there's more
I see there's more
than meets the eye.

A Creator of beautiful things,
Someone watching the skies,
Someone over my world.

Love simple, the open heart
Smiling.
Grace abundant, a bowed soul
Forgiven.

I see there's more
I see there's more
than meets the eye.

More than meets my eye
More than meets my thought
More than meets my heart
God, you are.

You are.

Korean Nagas

This response is the one I tried on Naga Blog on facebook.com, about the infatuation of Nagas over Korean movies and their culture subsequently. Most people are against the trend, but Ane Kevichusa, a member of the Naga Blog saying that it doesn't have to be bad thing. The fact that this discussion is going on and in English points to the fact that in the past we embraced something foreign and this has lead to a necessary gain in more ways than less for our people. Read:

I agree Ane.
Thats the secret of the English language. As compared to Latin.
English may seem like a parasitic language, borrowing words from almost about every language on earth. Call it whatever, but why is it that there are a lot of Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Russian, German who flock to English speaking countries to learn English. Why is English so important? Because its a language that has survived, so to say, the onslaught of invasion of globalisation.
It is not a time to only hold on to something we were born with.

But then I also am disgusted with the Korean madness. Shillong's Naga community was a mini Korea-town when I left Shillong. (well I am not saying only Nagas do it. The Garos, a few Khasis and so on are equally gripped with the mania, maybe not as crazily though.)

By the way, I don't think Nagas and Koreans will ever get along together, so we should stop pretending. Why so? Well, I have a guy friend from Korea who was upset the whole day because he saw a dead hedgehog in his garage last night, which he didn't even kill. Heck man. Nagas kill and eat anything that moves. Have you seen a Naga guy being mum and depressed because he ate a dog's tail last night???

P.S. My argument doesn't prove anything. I am not saying what's right or wrong. Korean fans go ahead and be hard out Koreans as much as you want to. And critics of such trend, go ahead and criticize what is going on, make the most hullabaloo of it as you can. Culture is this. Argument and discussion. Interaction of thoughts and ideas.
