डायस्पोरा...diaspora


दिल आवारा
तंग-गली जहान
डायस्पोरा

Key:
आवारा = vagabond
तंग = narrow 
जहान = world
डायस्पोरा = diaspora

    1. I am embarrassed, Indu:( for I know the altitude of your intelligence...
      I seek consultation from you: Have I started writing obscure or absurd? Am I becoming senile? In my opinion I am about 25 years away from the usual age of senility...

    2. Oh no.never!I You and senile-it is a joke.In fact i am very near it.
      Pardon me if i made you feel this way.
      I do find it difficult to get to the subtle meanings

    1. Thank you Geetashree for finding it so:)
      I haven't seen the world geographically but 'my world' seems very narrow and stifling hence this verse!

  5. Though the emotion conveyed is different, somehow I am reminded on the old song --Choti si yeh duniya pehchane raaste hai.. I loved listening to old hindi movie songs maybe that's why.
