इश्क़ ?


लबरेज़  था जबतो आते थे कई यार मश्कें  लिए हुए .
प्यासा हूँ आज,    तो मसरूफ़ हैं     सब ही कहीं -कहीं !

Translation:
Love ?
Many used to come with pitchers full ,  when satiated was I.
Am  thirsty today, but all are busy, somewhere or the other!

Meaning:
They  used to adore,  claiming to be lovers,  when I was  at the prime,
All have, however, found other interests when I need them most today!

Explanation:
This verse has although been written in first person, and obviously on myself, but it universally applies to a man, a woman, a flowering plant, a fruit bearing tree, a cow, a dog, a horse, and even to inanimate objects like a car, a house or a computer!

Life is like that darlingsJ

  2. Lovely lines. The true value of a person, thing, memory is what is left after superficialities and exchanges are stripped off. One can pine or one can move on.

  3. जो खूब बचाया था वो पास नहीं लेकिन

    जो खूब लुटाया था अब भी है खजाने में

    बेहतरीन प्रस्तुति ...संजय "सिफ़र"

  16. Actually members of each age group like to hob-nob with each other.When we grow old our peers too have grown & scattered or grown weak or simply disgusted with life.A few are left who circulate & help each other.Such is life.
