Why ..?



A girl hangs herself after 'failing in love'. A boy is too shattered to concentrate on life and has turned 'himself' into a 'failure '. A mother curses that someone special for 'making' her child a loser and a recluse. But ...e
ven love unreturned and unfulfilled  has its own Rainbow ! Then Why blame love .. ? Its perspective .


                                                                          हर  बात पे तक़रार करती थीं  तुम
                                                        जाने कैसा  प्यार  करती थीं तुम
                                                        जिस मोड़ पे  मिलती , तड़पा के गुज़रती  थीं 
                                                       फिर भी खुद को दोस्तों में शुमार करती थीं  तुम
                                                       अब जो  संभला हूँ  तो सोचा चंद बातें कर लूँ 
                                                       कि आखिर क्यों ये बार बार करती थीं तुम ..........

  2. बहुत सरल और सुन्दर शब्दों में सुन्दर भावोक्ति !
    कुछ पंक्तियाँ शायद आपको पसंद आएं :
    वो पागल सा एक लड़का जो देख के मुझको हँसता था
    बाहर से मुझे नफरत थी पर दिल में मेरे बसता था
    क्यों ठुकराया मांग के उसको सोच के अब पछताती हूँ
    दिल के बदले दिल माँगा था सौदा कितना सस्ता था

  3. Lovely! Why blame love indeed? It is one of the purest things. We certainly seem to enjoy it when things go right, why put all the blame on it when something goes wrong! A lovely question Kokila..

    1. Thanks Vinay :) I love it when you cut through all the mish-mash and reach to the point, directly !
      Yeah its a question and Love in turn answers something like "I am love.. I was teaching you how to live "
      Have a good day :)

  6. Wow! Never thought unfulfilled love can have such a perspective too! Wonderful, Kokila :)
    I got a hint while reading the poem itself that you are going to mention meaning of difficult terms when I noticed the underlined words :) Thank you, I learnt two new words - phalsapha and shumar :)
    TC! Keep smiling :)

  11. Aha! What a perspective.
    Frankly, I have no patience for these silly men-women who think a rejection/failure is end of the world. Smile, get a life, he/she was just not worthy enough of you!
    Live for yourself, yaar...think of the many dead who would give every treasure to get a minute of life in exchange!

    1. Yeah Dr. Sahiba ..well said and bang on ! :)
      Even I am like that but having seen a 'case' up,close and personal I know that that its real hard to deviate the mind and make him/her see rationally . They claim life is over and my a 'little lesser half' says "ek chutki pyar ki keemat tum kya jaano kokila babu "
      And I am like !! (rolling eyes)

  12. Wow Kokila, it's a totally different perspective and I LOVED it..so simple yet so beautiful.... :-)
