The apple never falls far from the tree

*****

हाँ मैंने देखी, 

कुदरत की ना-इंसाफ़ी देखी। 

रोटी के टुकड़े को तरसते लोगे देखे। 

और कहीं मनों के हिसाब से बिखरे सेब देखे। 

कहीं कूड़े पे पड़ा खाना भी है हलाल, 

और कहीं  चिड़िया भी चोंच न लगाए ये है हाल।

Note: I spent most of my time during Diwali in office. October is mostly like November. The days are grey, wet and rainy but I am still hoping for some beautiful moments to capture autumn essence.

जीवन की हर परीक्षा के बाद 

बस यही लगा कि 

वो माँ ही की दुआ थी 

जो काम आ गयी।
