The Tong (Chimta)

19 Mar

क्या क्यूँ और कैसे के फेर में बैठा, एक चिमटा देखा,
सोच विचार करे वोह क्या-क्या, मैंने उसको रोते देखा।
क्या रिश्ता उसका रोटी से, ऐसा उसको कहते देखा।
क्यूँ जलता है वोह अग्नि पे, मैंने उसको भय करते देखा।
कैसे वोह इस दर्द से छूटे, मंथन करते उसको देखा।
क्या क्यूँ और कैसे के फेर में बैठा, एक चिमटा देखा।

After having written these lines, it is indeed very tough to pin point to the inspiration behind these lines. I was sitting with my eyes closed, and these lines just came to me, probably because of hunger. But, indeed the chimta, isnt just a chimta, but in some aspects it is embodiment of human conditions in this poem. Now it is for others to judge, how successful I have been with this piece… and like always I will revisit this after few days.
