Reena’s Exploration Challenge #90

PROMPT FOR THIS WEEK

The word ‘compromise’ is just a theme. It need not appear in the piece. There is no harm if it does appear, or a synonym. The choice is yours.

मौत ने पूछा

ज़िंदगी एक छलावा है
एक झूट है
हर दिन हर पल तुम्हारा साथ छोड़ती जाती है
फिर भी तुम उसे प्यार करते हो
मैं एक सच्चाई हूँ अंत तक तुम्हारा साथ निभाती हूँ
पर फिर भी तुम मुझसे नफरत करते हो
मुझसे डरते हो
मुझसे समझौता कर लो
फिर कोई डर  तुम्हें  डरा न पायेगा
मैंने कहा
तुम सत्य हो शाश्वत हो
अनिवार्य हो
पर तुमसे कैसे समझौता करलूं
तुम्हारी टाइमिंग  बहुत गलत होती है
तुम गलत समय पर गलत लोगों को ले जाती हो
तुम गलत समय पर गलत तरीके से आती हो
पूछो उन बदनसीब अभिवावकों से
जिन्होंने खोय अपने लाल असमय
 पूछो उन से ,
जिन्होंने ने गवाए अपने परिजन
आतंकवादियों के हाथों
 उम्र थी जान गवाने की
फिर जो मजबूर, पीड़ित , बीमार
मरने की प्रार्थना करते हैं
उन्हें तुम तड़पने को छोड़ देती हो
बच्चों ,जवानों को अपना शिकार बनाती हो
कैसे करलूं तुमसे समझौता
तुम कड़वा सच हो, अनिवार्य हो पर
न्यायसंगत नहीं
काम से काम मेरी नज़र में तो नहीं
ज़िन्दगी लाख छलावा सही
मीठा झूट सही
पर सुन्दर है जीने का,
लड़ने का हौसला देती है
——————————————————

sometimes we look back

thinking
what if we hadn’t
made the compromises
 life would have been different for
better
or for worse
but
there is no use cribbing now
life
any way is a
a mixed bag of
hopes and disappointments
dreams and realities
victories and defeats
triumphs and disasters
sometimes you win
sometimes you lose
sometimes you have to  run against the tide
make compromises
if need arises
just be sure it’s not alone you
who makes compromises
rules should be
the same for everyone
don’t lose your heart
don’t complain
count your blessings
be proud of whatever you have achieved
keep your composure
spine stretched
shoulders straight
heart full of gratitude
head held with pride

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Both the pieces are beautiful. Regarding the first one – how can we decide that the timing was wrong? I came across the story of a Chinese farmer, who said at every event of joy or sorrow – “Maybe, it’s good. Maybe, it’s bad.”

    • Dear Reena, thanks for your comment. You need a great optimist to think like that. Ask the family of the person died in the riots or bomb blast, parents who have lost their children, windows, etc. Whereas people suffering long who want to go but go on living a painful life. Personally, my father, sister brother all passed away at the wrong age and the way my mother suffered praying for death…Everyone has his/her own experience to say about this.

      • My dad passed away at 57, and brother at 40. My 80-year old mother prays for death every day. The dog I loved most in life left me at the age of 7. The story is similar to yours.

        Actually, it takes an ascetic, not an optimist to say that.

      • Forgot to add my dog, suffered too much and passed away when 2 . So similar indeed. Actually it death, I am not afraid but it’s way of coming and timing. :).Yes the right word is ascetic, indeed. . I am not bitter, just wrote for the challenge whatever came to my mind.
        Are you enjoying Mumbai monsoon? Wish you all the best.
