सुनो...
एक काम करोगे?
अपने आँगन की
एक
मुट्ठी धूप,
और उसमें खड़ा
वो जो
नीम
का पेड़ है ,
उसकी
एक
चुटकी छाया
देते
जाओ...
इस बरस
सर्दी, गर्मी कट जायेगी...
तुम फ़िर डर गए|
नही-नही,
बारिश के लिए कुछ नही चाहिए|
शायद,
तब तक आदत पड़ जाए...

  1. Ek mutthi dhoop, ek chutki chhaaya
    Lagta hai jaise zara si khwaahish hai, hai na?
    De to dein hum tumko ye uphaar magar
    Sambhaal ke rakhoge iska bharosa to do!
    Darte to bas hum is baat se hain ki
    Kahin humaare aangan ka koi tarasta musaafir
    Tumko koi bad-dua na de jaaye...

  3. @:D - "bad-dua" to bahaana hai..."tum phir darr gaye", isliye 'mutthi' aur 'chutki' bhar hi khwaahish hai...puri tum puri nahi kar paaoge.

    @With Malice: Thank you.

  5. Bahaana nahi hai. Yearning, if in abundance, can easily breed malice. And it is not the self proclaimed people "with malice" that are the ones you should be wary of:)

    Aur humaare darr ki baat to aapne baar-baar kar di, par kya aap ek zara sa bharosa dene se nahi ghabra gaye..?

    Har kisi ki khwaahish hai ek mutthi dhoop, ek chutki chhaaya, par ye bharosa dena koi nahi chaahta.

  6. @With Malice and :D - I hope the discussion is not going where it should not go. The realm of the abstract can be painfully ambiguous. Its ambiguity, and the fact that it lends itself to various interpretations, can often lead to misunderstanding. Your inputs are invaluable, and I am grateful to be considered worthy of the feedback( I really wish, I had the flair that you two have for writing and understanding the written word), but I must confess that sometimes, I find myself too scared to read between the lines and beyond the words.

  7. Oops, I guess I struck some wrong chord there. Sorry!

  8. @:D - :) You do not have to be sorry. It's just that, one does not wish to confront the 'truth' for as long as one can, and although it is an illusion, one believes that doing so is the best way to remain happy.

  9. @:D: with malice is called so for a reason and that isn't enough for people to be wary of him :)

    @Dew: nazar-nazar ki baat hai...
    muhabbat mein nahi hai farq jeene aur marne ka...
    usi ko dekhkar jeete hain jis kaafir pe dam nikle...
