“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”~ Mahatma Gandhi

One Day a Rich Businessman, a Kashmiri Pandit in his Mid 50’s was traveling back to his Home after successfully completing a Big Business Deal in Singapore. On his Arrival at the Indira Gandhi International Airport’s Domestic Wing, He Saw a Breaking News: All Was Lost! His House and some others in his vicinity were burnt, sparked by Communal Hatred which transgressed after the Godhra Riots. A Religious Minority who was a Majority in Kashmir had burnt Houses & Hindu’s to avenge the Death of their kin in Gujarat.

This Newsflash ushered in a series of Desperate Phone calls from him to gather knowledge of his Family consisting of a 27 Year Old Son and Early 50’s Wife! Sadly Heartache was to follow, as he had lost them both in the Dastardly act of Inhumanity.

Rajesh Handoo, in a series of moments from Pure Happiness after achieving one of his Biggest Business Deals had experienced his Deepest Malaise. All Appeared Lost…

He rushed to his Home; Vendetta in the name of Revenge was all that he had in Mind. In a week’s time he rushed to avenge the Death… With a Country made Revolver in Hand, amidst the wee hours of dawn he entered a Colony, to kill as many as he could and Die in the Process.

Near the Entrance of the Colony, A “Janazaa” was fast approaching, he hid the Gun behind his back, as they crossed him, he decided that now was the time. He Open Fired and managed to Bruise someone’s leg, in his first amateur shot. The Country made Revolver took his toll on his old hand and the hand shook vigorously, unable to fire another shot.

Within Minutes, A Pool of People rushed towards him and he was rendered invalid within minutes and was subsequently out cold. Later, when he gains his consciousness back, he finds himself in a Hospital’s ICU, only to hear stories of how The Head of that Community had got him admitted there and had cooled off the animated mob.

Rameez, 24, who was a Part time Painter, had Painted his House a few times near Diwali when all was well. He identified Rajesh and was able to empathize with his State of Perdition; he was the one who calmed the Angry Mob! Also turned out that Rameez was the Person who had lost his Arm courtesy Rajesh’s Bullet and was now permanently disabled.

Rameez was Calm, while Rajesh Looked at him with Moist Eyes which admitted his Guilt from a Moment of Madness. Rajesh’s Leg was permanently cut too, by the Angry Mob, and he realized this when he tried to get up and admit his remorseful dastardly act nonetheless Rajesh explained to him why Vendetta was at that time High on his Agenda.

Rameez in a composed tone told him “I Know Everything, My Brother.. I Forgive You! Just Promise me that You’ll help another who needs reconditioning and Help, Plz Don’t Sympathize with them Empathize always.. and You’ll understand that I really did Nothing for You The Other Day..” No More Words needed.. there was Painful Silence in the Hospital Room.

“I learn from my own daughter that you don’t have to be awake to cry.”~ Jodi Picoult

*Few Months Later*

Rajesh had begun working back, and re-located to Delhi for Horrors of Kashmir now needed to be Left where they belonged to.. in the Trash bin of His Brain’s Memory!

Work made him travel to Pune expressway and while returning back, he noticed a small Child Foster Home Centre on the Left. In a Momentary decision, he asked the Driver to Stop, take the car a little back and Enter the Foster Home. There he asked to Visit the Children..

He Expressed his Desire to Adopt a Child, Procedure began and a few month’s later he was contacted to come and select from within the Children, when all legal clearances were made. He arrived and asked if he could see all the Kids, he could possibly Adopt.

A Line-Up of 10 Kids, was brought in front of him.. but Rajesh could not find the one he was looking for within them. Rajesh saw a Shadow from the Corner of his Eye, and he got inquisitive of who it may be.. The Strict appearing Clerk to his query replied “You don’t want that Kid. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other Kids would… But still if you wish to I’ll call him over”

The 13 Year Old was Called for and he Entered the Room in a Somewhat awkward manner, hobbling towards him trying to walk as quickly as he could.. turned out the Kid was suffering from Polio, and hence had Slight Problem in Walking! Rajesh had tears in his Eyes, The Clerk said “ See.. I Told You, You’ll…” Rajesh exclaimed “May I Adopt him Please!!” The Clerk was Amazed and wanted to ask.. Rajesh instantly rolled up one Leg of his Trouser and revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the Clerk, he said, “You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need Someone who understands…”

The Clerk quizzed the Kid, with a Quaint Smile.. “ Rameez, Do You Like Mr. Rajesh here?” Rameez smiled and nodded to show his Approval..

In The Vicinity of Truth..!

social_media_truth

“The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.”~ Oscar Wilde

Where does Truth Begin..?

And where does it end..?

 

Where does it actually Reign?

How does it, then, often Bend?

 

Press yourself & think again..

Is it for Real or just a Trend?

 

The Search for it may be Foreign

Or in your own Homeland..

 

My Conclusion is simple..

There is No Absolute Truth..!

There are only Versions..

And Perspectives

To Accumulate in the End.

 

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”~ Mark Twain

Perhaps Not to be is to be without your Being.. by Pablo Neruda

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Perhaps not to be is to be without your being,
without your going, that cuts noon light
like a blue flower, without your passing
later through fog and stones,
without the torch you lift in your hand
that others may not see as golden,
that perhaps no one believed blossomed
the glowing origin of the rose,
without, in the end, your being, your coming
suddenly, inspiringly, to know my life,
blaze of the rose-tree, wheat of the breeze:
and it follows that I am, because you are:
it follows from ‘you are’, that I am, and we:
and, because of love, you will, I will,
We will, come to be…”~ Pablo Neruda

काश…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

काश फिर मिलने की वजह मिल जाए
साथ बिताये वो खट्टे मीठे पल मिल जाए
दर्स आपका हो ख्वाब मेरे…
जिस तरह चाहु.. उस तरह आप मिल जाए !!

बेवजह हम बात करें
फिर से वह रूठना मनाना मिल जाए
आओ हाथ में हाथ कही दूर चले जाए
पीछे मुढ़ के न देखे
मदहोशी में खो जाए!!

चलो अपनी आँखें बंद कर ले..
बंद आँखों से एक नयी दुनिया देखें
क्या पता ख्वाबों में..
गुजरी हुई यादों का समुन्दर मिल जाए!!

Poem concieved and developed on the basis of an BBM shayari recieved from a Friend!

“A life without love is a waste. “Should I look for spiritual love, or material, or physical love?”, don’t ask yourself this question. Discrimination leads to discrimination. Love doesn’t need any name, category or definition. Love is a world itself. Either you are in, at the center…either you are out, yearning..”~ Shams Tabrizi

“Until you’ve found pain you won’t reach the cure
until you’ve given up life
you won’t unite with the supreme soul
until you’ve found fire inside yourself
you won’t reach the spring of life…”~ Rumi

One of my Fav. Tracks “Tum Bin..”

English Translation:

Without you, what is life? What is there to live for?
Without you, what is life?
How can my life go on without you?
How can I go on living without you?
The nights are longer than centuries;
the days pass more slowly than millenia.
Come back to me! my heart is calling.
In the evenings, loneliness wakes (in me).
I’m missing you;
I feel like I’m dying;
you are tormenting me.
In this heart memories of you clamor.
How lonely I am without you!
Come back to me! my heart is calling.
The things I’d imagined for us!
The dreams I’d embroidered!
The many things my heart hoped for!
The desires that stirred in me…
Storms pass through this heart of mine;
without you, I manage to neither live nor die.
Come back to me! my heart is calling.
How can my life go on without you?
How can I go on living without you?
The nights are longer than centuries;
the days pass more slowly than millenia.
… Come back to me! my heart is calling.
