Zindagi ke panne

Aaj palat rahi thi zindagi ke kuch panne

Har panna jaise apni hi dastaan sunane laga

Kahin pe tha pyaar beshumar

Kahin thi gamon ki bauchaar

Kahi pe naazar aayi thodi si ruswai

Kahi laga, hui bhi thi thodi si jag hasaai

 

Kuch panne choot gaye they adhoore

Kuch ho kar bhi adhoore, lag rahe they poore

Kuch panno se jhalak rahi thi masoom si hansi

Kahin naazar aayi apne aap se bhi berukhi

Kahin thi arzooein dabi dabi si

Kahin khul ke jee li thi har khushi

 

Kahin they ankahe izhaar

Aur kabhi naazar ayi pyaar bhari takraar

Kahin mila nok-jhok, hansi-mazak ka khazana

Aur kahin tha dard ka apna afsana

 

In panno ki dastano ne ehsaas yeh dilaya

Rangeen hai yeh zindagai, har lamhe ka mazaa uthaya  

Is haseen ehsaas se aaj phir naye panno ki kar rahi hun shuruwat

Hai yakeen ki phir se hogi ek nayi takdeer se mulakat!

 

I have begun to experience and understand what completions mean. I guess I am. Though there is sadness in letting go and closing chapters of life. However it truly is a liberating experience. What inspired me to write this poem was the realization as some chapters of my life are reaching completions there are many new chapters that are beginning to reveal themselves to me. It’s amazing this miracle called life and it’s magical healing ways! Cheers to the universe …Cheers to LIFE!

Also would like to make a special mention of my colleague and a new friend Rahul who is a copywriter and theatre actor in Delhi. He encouraged me to make an attempt to re connect with a language which I feel (I am ashamed to say) am not comfortable with anymore … Yes Hindi …sadly true but thanx to Rahul I have made my 1st attempt and happy to reconnect with my core yet again!
