Mallal (Regret)

Abhi to zindagi chalu hui hi thi
Abhi to khushiya kuch khili hi thi
Abhi to dil ne umeede bhari hi thi
ki ho gai ek dastak!

Khola darwaja tu usse khada paya,
dil me mand mand sa ek malaal ubhar aya
piche se apno ki khilkaria sunai de rahi thi
aur samne apni maut dikh rahi thi..

Usne ek kadam meri taraf lia,
Mera ek kadam piche hua..
Dil ki dhadkan me samma kuch gunj utha,
pal tham gya, jab us yam ka sar utha..

uske chehre me mein khud ka chehra dekh pa rha tha,
jo mein banna chahta tha usme nazar a rha tha
uske kapdo par ek ajib sa drishya ubhar rha tha,
dhyan se dekha to mera parivar has rha tha…

saanse gehri tabtak ho chuki thi,
asmanjas me dimag ki batti gul ho chuki thi..
uski annkho se badde badde ansu chalak rahe the
manno mere mallal ki dastah ro rahe the

mene gardan piche ghumai ki ek akhiri jhalak pa saku
ab jab jana hi hai, to bas ise sanjo saku
itne me wo pass mere a khada hua
mera bhi samarpand mein tha sar jhuka hua

wo mere pass aya aur kaha
ki bas yahi yad dilane aya hu…..
jo chal rha hai mallal ander
woi jatane aya hua
agli bar khali haath nahi jaunga
agli bar yeh mallal nahi chahunga…

Meri nazre uthi to waha koi nahi tha…
maut chu ke nikal gai mujhe vishwas nahi tha
bas yeh gyat tha ki ander ek mallal tha
aur zindagi ka maksad use mitana tha……

PS – Your mortality is the biggest mirror you can have in your life.

During this unprecedented time, it’s normal to feel that death is just at your doorstop.

But don’t let it scare you.

Let it make you aware of the things you have put aside. Things you thought you have enough time to deal with.

There is no future.

We only have the present.

Utilize it to the fullest.
