Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

din jaa rahe hain

.. aaj patjhaD ke ek toote patte se mulaaqaat hui .. kaheen Dhhoondhnaa nahee
paDaa use ... shaam ke jhurmute mein darakht ki daali se toot kar paanv ke
paas aa giraa thhaa .... abhee bhee haraa saa thhaa ... thheek see murjhaayaa
bhee na thhaa jab tootaa thhaa ... haan! koi to vajah zaroor hogi ... jo toot
gayaa itni aasaani se ... mushkil ye nahee thhee ki toot gayaa ... mushkil ye
thhee ki abhee zinddagi khatm nahee hui thhee ....

saans lenaa bhee kaisi aadat hai ...
jiye jaanaa bhee kyaa ravaayat hai ...

paanv behis hain chalate jaate hain ...
ik safar hai jo behataa rahataa hai ...
kitne barson se ... kitni sadiyon se ...
jiye jaate hain .. jiye jaate hain ...

patte par abhee bhee shabnam ki boonde chamak rahi thhee ... shaam aur shabnam
boonde ?? nahee ... ye nahee ho saktaa ... din bhar ki tapti dhhoop shabnam ko
kab ki mitaa chuki thhee ... phir ye kyaa thhaa ?? ... na maine poochhaa na
usne kahaa ... poochhtaa bhee kaise ? ... khud apnee palkon ke chhalakne pe
kaaboo hotaa to usase sawaalaat kartaa ... hum dono tab se khaamosh ek doosre
ki taraf dekhte rahe  ... achaanak kabhee ghabraa kar sar duusri aur
ghumaa lete ki kaheen dusraa sawaal na kar baithhey aur jawaab denaa paDe ...
na wo apnee boondon se bekhabar thaa aur na main hi apne ashqon se pare thhaa
ek dusre se humdardi nahee thhee magar humdard hone kaa ehsaas thhaa ...
patte ko zamee-nasheen hone kaa gham nahee thhaa ... magar ye kambakht
jiye jaane kaa riwaaz bebas kiye thhaa .... patte ne nazar uthhaate hi aankhon
se chand sawaal kar diye .... maine bhee waapsee mein kuchh sawaal uthhaa diye
... na mere paas koi jawaab thhaa ... na uske paas ...

harek saans bojh thhee ... saanson kaa bojh uthhaane se jab inkaar kar diyaa
to bhee chhutkaaraa naa thhaa ... saansen khud apnaa bojh uthhaane lagi ...
maano meraa uspe koi zor hi na thaa ... haar kar apne aap ko zindagi ke
hawaale kar diyaa ...

riwaazon kaa khel khelte hue sab kuchh miltaa rahaa jo main sochataa rahaa ki
main chaahtaa thhaa ... main patte ki tarah haraa rahaa ... andar jhaankne ko
taaltaa rahaa .... wahaan kaa rookhaapan dekhne se dartaa thhaa ... nahee
jaantaa thhaa ki sulagate angaaron meni lau see zyaadaa jalaane ki taaqat hoti
hai ... dheeme dheeme binaa kisi halchal ke andar ki harek rag ko nichoD ke
uspar kaali siyaahi chhoD jaate hain ye angaare ... main baahar ko tarashtaa
rahaa jabki andar kuchh baaqi hi na thhaa .... kab tak na maaloom hotaa ?? ...
kabhee to saaraa Dhaanchaa charmaraakar girnaa hi thhaa na ... apne aap se
door nahee bhag sakaa aaj ... apni aankhon ke saamne apne badan se girti raakh
ko dekhtaa rahaa .... kuchh adhjale sapne, kuchh bikhri si yaaden ... mere
saamne bhee giri thhee aur mere andar bhee maujood thhee ... unke saath akele
safar karne ko majboor hoon ... pehale ki tarah .... harek din .. apnaa saleeb
aap hi uthhaaye chaltaa rahegaa ... saanson kaa shor yoon hi jaari rahegaa ...

din jaa rahe hain ... ke raaton ke saaye ...
apni saleebe.n aap hi uthaaye ...
apni saleebe.n ... aap hi uthhaaye ...

jab koi doobaa raaton kaa taaraa ...
koi saveraa waapas naa aayaa ...
waapas jo aaye ... veeraan saaye ...

din jaa rahe hain ... ke raaton ke saaye ...

jeenaa to koi mushkil nahee thhaa ...
magar doobne ko saahil nahee thhaa ...
saahil pe koi ... ab to bulaaye ...

din jaa rahe hain ... ke raaton ke saaye ...

saanson ki dori ... toote naa toote ...
zaraa zindagi se daaman to chhoote ...
koi zindagi se ... haath na aaye ....

din jaa rahe hain ... ke raaton ke saaye ....
apni saleebe.n ... aap hi uthhaaye ....
