हमेशा की तरह

मेरे
ज़हन में बसने वाली
वह
कल
बहुत दिनों बाद
झुंझलाई सी
आई, और
धम्म से
तुनक कर
बैठ गयी;
और मैं
हमेशा की तरह
उसको
निहारता रहा|

इसलिए

दिमाग फितूरी था
इसलिए
बहुत सोचा इक
दिन
फिर से
अपने बारे में;
और जाने किस
गुबार में
अष्टाव्रक जिंदगी
के उस कोने
की सफाई करने
चला।

Never give in humiliating!

“It’s okay not to like someone, but it is never okay to try

and degrade, humiliate, or dehumanize them.” – Cory Booker

I have known the Lawrence School Lovedale for over 25 years and professionally involved (on and off), with it since 2004.

plunder and ravage;

hit the hard surfaces

and

tangled

in the ragged edges

of my

The Dead and the Living

“I think I had a mother once…” – Peter Pan

I feel cheated.

Natural death has disregarded me.

Once again I have lost out.

With innumerable masks resounding with hushed, unspoken and unshed tears of shrieks, I am left in this shambles not knowing what to do? Where to go? Whom to talk to? What to talk about?  Whom to relate with?

The living are tiring.

न जाने क्यों?

ख्वाबों के दरिया में
अचनाक
ताबीर आया, और
ज़ंक़े-जंगों से सजे
मेरी यादों के ताबूत में
एक दरार
नई
पड़ गयी.

न जाने क्यों
आज तुम
बहुत याद आए?
