Her Journey

11 Aug

Journey is one of the topics that I like writing about. Destination is definitely important, but it doesnt teach, its the journey that readies you for another destination. As free as this world is, females get a raw end of this freedom. These few lines are therefore are dedicated to all the braveheart girls I know, who have personally touched my life in one way or other, who are in their respective journeys to be something, to be someone in this masculine world. I have kept this poem somewhere between hope and irony, vision and fears…

में चली जहाँ मुझे हवा ले चली,
किसी डोर को छोड़, किसी छौर की और,
कैसी है दुनिया, धुंडने चली,
में चली जहाँ मुझे हवा ले चली...

बूझने कुछ अनसुनी पहेलियाँ चली,
देखने अनदेखे नज़ारे, अनजाने दोस्तों के संग,
छोटी मगर नायाब दुनिया बसाने चली,
में चली जहाँ मुझे हवा ले चली...

शायद थकुंगी, थोडा रुकुंगी,
बेहकुं भी और डरूं भी शायद,
गले जो लगाये है सपने, पूरा करने उन्हें चली,
में चली जहाँ मुझे हवा ले चली...
