You should have not died Sukhlal.
You should have been
careful,very careful,while handling
T.V set,Dish antenna,live wires.
You should have been cautious
about electric hazards.
Stupid you Sukhlal,stupid you.
You have simply wasted your life.
Sukhlal, how could you surrender
so easily to death without any fight
without any objection,without
without giving any chance to anyone?
How could you Sukhlal how could you
forget the faces of your young daughters
and of your old mother and wife
before you breathed your last?
You should not have died
You should not have died
Sukhlal, Sukhlal, Sukhlal.
I will probably write a poem
to hang this evening till death.
No hope that it will survive
the harassment of time unkind.
Else,I kept this evening for you
but you have lost the reason to take it.
Wish those days did not change
and I had no reason to interpret
what you say and what you mean
and what you mean but never speak out.
Wish I did not buy that instrument
which only increases the distance.
I could then arrive to your door by walking
to give you no chance of saying any excuse.
But most of our wishes are not fulfilled
so I’ll not move and allow this evening to perish.
are way to their home above
war of life goes on
Sometime I look at the sky above
You aren’t seen mother
None of them are seen
who moves there
all of a sudden
not giving us any clue
and not even saying
What’s the hurry, mother
why calls from above
should always come to them
who has no plan
to leave us apart?
Tell me, mother,tell me about
the greatness of
heaven’s secret plan
or it’s cruelty is just
breaking my heart.
Mind is preparing
so ears listen to
so far been unheard.
Not to disclose
it is to be left for you must
for a better work I’m told
is done this way.
I met this man
or exactly not so
in a busy market place
a face in the crowd
aged and about to retire
worried and truthful
agreeing no more
to carry the bags of vanity
my ears listen to.
everyone is dead
but your imagination
Live and let die is not a good option
because someone has to die for others.
Who knows this is not me someday?
Die and let live is also not a good option
because I have got to die for others.
This is never my choice for obvious.
Die and let die is a bad option
because I have got to die with others
How can this be my choice?
Live and let live is the only good option
because no one has to die for others.
My living is somewhat guaranteed.
Let me Vote for safety of my life.
for your permission
to cross our door.
Only when you thought
it was your time
not to stay here
I saw it entering
like an obedient son
to do its duty
of carrying your soul.
Mother, I can not forget
I saw love in your eyes
I can’t. I can’t.
years ago,cold night
in a hospital, you laid
in the dawn
a chariot came
to carry you forever
I don’t believe
I’m going to dye soon.
Actually I don’t wish to dye now.
In fact I don’t have any reason to dye.
I don’t,don’t, don’t.
I hate dyeing.
my hairs are still black enough.
But this is a crazy world.
People are dyeing everywhere.
No age bar for dyeing
Red,yellow,black and white
Anyone dyeing any time.
Dyeing has become a fun almost.
