Aahista Chal Zindagi…

Few days back I came across this very beautiful poem over the internet. As if each and every word has a hidden meaning to it. Life moves way too fast. We do not have the time to think about it, to enjoy it, to make the most out of it. When your world moves too fast, and you lose yourself in the chaos, then take a pause and just be happy. Learn to live again your beautiful life. Life is too short and precious. So make the most of simple moments. Appreciate kindness. Let go off negativity. Love a little stronger, Forgive a little sooner, and Smile a little sweeter.

आहिस्ता चल जिंदगी, अभी कई कर्ज़ चुकाना बाकी है।
कुछ दर्द मिटाना बाकी है, कुछ फर्ज निभाना बाकी है।

Slow down your pace, Oh Life! There is a lot of debt yet to be repaid.
Some pains are yet to be erased; some duties are yet to be fulfilled.

रफ़्तार में तेरे चलने से कुछ रूठ गये, कुछ छूट गये।
रुठों को मनाना बाकी है,रोतों को हसाना बाकी है।

Your speed led to some being angry; and some just left behind.
The upset are yet to be pacified; the crying ones are yet to be comforted.

कुछ हसरतें अभीं अधूरी है, कुछ काम भी और जरुरी है।
ख्वाईशें जो घूट गई इस दिल में, उनको दफ़नाना बाकी है।

Some wishes are yet to be fulfilled; some work is yet to be completed.
Desires that are imprisoned in my heart, they are yet to be buried.

कुछ रिश्तें बनकर टूट गये, कुछ जुडते – जुडते छूट गये।
उन टूटे – छूटे रिश्तों के जखमों को मिटाना बाकी है।

Some relations broke after they bloomed; some broke away even before they could bloom.
All those wounds of broken relations are yet to be healed.

तू आगे चल मै आता हूँ, क्या छोड तुझे जी पायेंगे?
इन सांसों पर हक़ है जिनका, उनको समझाना बाकी हैं।

You carry on. I will come along. But can I possibly live without you?
He who controls my every breath, I am yet to come to terms with Him.

आहिस्ता चल जिंदगी, अभी कई कर्ज़ चुकाना बाकी है।
Slow down your pace, Oh Life! There is a lot of debt yet to be repaid.

    Trupti nice one and so true, life or days seem to be going away so soon. There’s so much of meaning in it. Nice share.

    • Thanks Jayashree. I believe once time goes away, it never comes back, so we should try to make the best out of it.
