शिकवा

Posted on

किसी मशहूर शायर ने कहा
“मैं भी मुंह में जबान रखता हूँ
कोई पूछे की माजरा क्या है.”
Methinks’

सब हैं अपनी सुनाने को बेताब यहाँ
किससे पूछे कोई कि माजरा है क्या
अपने गम से ही सब है मारे हुए
तेरे गम की खबर रखे कोई क्या
रोजी रोटी की खातिर बस गए सब यहाँ और वहां
किसी को किसी का आसरा   है क्या
भूले बिसरे जो याद करले कोई
उसीका शुक्रिया कर शिकवा करना क्या

Life is unpredictable
Future is uncertainty
In the path of your life
Your fate you will meet
Which will savor you as a treat

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 3 – Schadenfreude

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 3 – Schadenfreude

Schadenfreude is pleasure derived from the misfortune of others. An English expression with a similar meaning is Roman holiday, a metaphor from the poem Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage by George Gordon, Lord Byron, where a gladiator in Ancient Rome expects to be “butchered to make a Roman holiday” while the audience would take pleasure from watching his suffering

( opposite word- mudita, “sympathetic joy” or “happiness in another’s good fortune,” is cited as an example of the opposite of schadenfreude.)

Whenever I watch DISCOVERY CHANNEL or National Geography Channel and come across films on lion, tiger or other carnivorous animal hunting deer, antelopes or other lovely animals. Then enjoying while watching these films seems to me as if I’m a Schadenfreude. Or, when we pluck flowers to decorate our homes aren’t we getting pleasure from their pain.

There are people who get pleasure from, pigeon fight, cockfight, bullfight and to me getting pleasure from boxing and wrestling is also indulging in Schadenfreude act. there are several examples of this. Some people get pleasure in being cruel to others, by terrorizing others, by killing, rape or other heinous crimes.

In communal riots, I have watched people killing, beating and burning alive people of other community and enjoying. It was so devilish act.

Sometimes senior students in the name of ragging do inhumane behavior with junior students and enjoy their activities.

Some people enjoy wealth earned by selling spurious milk, medicine, food items etc. They enjoy while others suffer from their actions.

In every country, we can find some example of Schadenfreude act.

Why it is that
foolish people are compared with donkey
and not with
cow, zebra, giraffe or monkey
methinks,
the answer is simple
as you may say
both don’t know
when to keep mum and when to bray.
( No offense intended for donkeys, they are lovely and hard-working. They are just stubborn, single-minded and will go to extreme lengths to get what they want, especially when someone indicates “No, you can’t have this. “)

Love

What love is all about ?

methinks,

It is easy communication,

togetherness,

and comfortable interaction,

as do the pups,

with their snout.

 

 

 

 

 

A thought for Corncob

corncob-Bhutta

When roasted on slow fire

Rubbed with butter or lemon and salt

It is a delightful food to savor

So serve it to the person who is hungry and

relishes it with fervor

Than to a person who eats it without gratitude

As if doing it a favor

Soma, this is for you.

Strange are the ways of love

We pray to liberate those

Whom we love dearly

SOLITUDE

Posted on

Standing all alone

a forlorn stump

bereaved of all the leaves

amidst thousands of people,

city, full of crows and ever fighting magpies,

birds, fellow trees, sparrows

I miss

friends, near and dear ones,

gone

Solitude is a curse or a bliss.

‘Indira’

Appreciation

A rewarding exercise

Do and get reward

( I don’t know whether this is Haiku or not but it’s fun to write)
