Photographs : तस्वीरें मेडल जैसी लगती हैं

This poem is all about those old photographs, which sketch your persona and tell you a reason for feeling like a hero.

Me with my Parents, Once upon a time in Kanpur, India

ब्लैक एंड व्हाइट से कलर होते

ज़िंदगी के एलबम में

एक ही शक्ल

कितनी अलग दिखाई देती है

हर दौर की तस्वीरें पलटते हुए

चाहे कितनी कमियां रही हों

तंगहाल ब्लैक एंड व्हाइट शानदार लगता है

आज के चमचमाते, संपन्न मल्टीकलर दौर में

 

हम क्या थे.. क्या हो गए

चाय के घूंट हलक के नीचे उतारते हुए

आंखों में गीली सी चमक आ जाती है

तस्वीरें मेडल जैसी लगती हैं

ऐसे एल्बम हर घर के किसी कोने में पड़े हैं

उन्हें एक नज़र गौर से देखते हुए

हमारे अंदर का हीरो ज़िंदा हो जाता है।


International Version


Its a sea of photographs

In which my childhood is printed

I see Faces,

Travelling in time machine

From streets of Black & White

To fields of Color

Its a journey of Expressions

Those days in history are like military medals

 

A bit of Ice melts in Eyes…

Everytime i turn pages of that photo album

We all have our own Photo streams

Just Try to zoom in

You would find another reason to feel like a Hero
