Pensive Reflections. . .April 29 2015

'Getting Up and Letting Go' is surely one of the most difficult things to do in life but at times it becomes imperative to do so lest you find your life doing it to you. And once you have done the same, you will realize that no matter how difficult it was, staying there was more painful.

~~~ Ghazal in Hindi ~~~

कोई कैसे बताये उन्हें इन नादानियों का सबब क्या है
लरजते लबों की बुदबुदाहट का असरार--अदब क्या है

नज़रे मुंतज़िर है हरसू लिए हसरत--दीदार--यार की
वह पूछते है साहब--हुज़ूर ये दिल--मुज़्तरिब क्या है

~ दिल और ख़्वाब (Dil aur Khwaab) / Heart & Dreams ~

Source: Google Images

***The dreams we see and the desires we aspire are always special to us. The fear of them getting lost amidst the realities of the outer world always scares us. The scary feeling also emanates from those dreams and desires who firmly feel that the heart remains their only solace for getting saved from extinction in the real world.***

~~~ Poem in Hindi ~~~

कल रात फिर कुछ ख्वाबो ने
कच्ची नींद की चादर हटा कर
दिल के दरवाज़े पर
एक हलकी सी दस्तक दी

Pensive Reflections. . .Apr 09 2015

How fast the time just seems yesterday when the only stress the life had was completing the homework and now the only solace the life has is doing the home work (staying at home). It appears that we actually had grown up a bit too early, if only that age of innocence could last a bit longer. . .

The husband and wife recently arrived in the village and had bought a piece of land for cultivation. Both of them were very kind and would always serve the needy out of the limited means they had. They had a regular visitor to their house on a daily basis – an elderly old man. Baba, as everyone in the village called him, always came around the noon hour to seek food and the family always obliged him.

… and that’s how, the Musings was born !!

It was a lazy Sunday morning when both of us – me and the sun - were trying hard to distance ourselves from the sick daily routine of waking up early. While I lay there in my couch half awoke and half slept not yielding to the constant calls from my mother to discard both the lousiness and the bed; my counterpart, the sun, was comfortably hiding deep under those dark blue sheets of the clouds, unwilling to come out despite being constantly nudged by the flowing gentle breeze.
