Leave it Unanswered



In life’s errands,
questions raise hands,
answers give a miss,

What’s the gain
answers are pain
ignorance is bliss.

सवाल मेरा पता ढूंढ़ लेते हैं पर,
जवाबों का शहर मालूम नहीं,
ज़वाबों की खबर ना ही मिले तो अच्छा
बेखबर नहीं तो सुकून नहीं।

  2. दुनिया में जिधर देखो हजारो रस्ते दीखते
    मंजिल जिनसे मिल जाए बो रस्ते नहीं मिलते

    किस को गैर कहदे हम और किसको मान ले अपना
    मिलते हाथ सबसे है दिल से दिल नहीं मिलते

  6. Hello Meenakshi.. I realized the real beauty of these lines as I delved deeper into their substance.. Really loved it.

    It's amazing that you were able to get the same soul in two bodies (languages)..

    I always emphasize on your versatility.. Once again you have proven me right.. I really look forward to some more gems like these.

    Absolutely Superb.

    1. Thanks Deepak for these amazing words! I always thought of writing my Hindi verses in English but was not sure if I can do justice to it. So this was a small attempt. This encouragement means a lot!

  7. Wow ... am speechless ... to begin with, the English lines are beautiful, the messages clear and crisp, and so true. And then comes the masterpiece 4 lines, well, I can't comment on that. Your Hindi lines touch the chord of my senses. Absolute perfection. Please, do write some more like this !!!
