This song is just too special. The first time I heard this song I was in tears. It has this ability to make you calm, make you feel at ease.
The one and only Imagine by The John Lennon
Share this song, listen to this song, it is just love.
We all tell a tale
and that is where we all fail.
Who is listening?
If you are a friend, you will know.
चल बता वह कौनसी बात है,
जिसका तुझे आज भी एहसास है.
हसी के पीछे कुछ तो है,
दोस्त हु तेरा, इसीलिए मुझे आभास है.
चाल में तेरे आज भी वही रफ़्तार है,
बातो में तेरे आज भी वही ठहराव है,
दिखने में तू आज भी है वैसा,
पर आँखों तेरी कुछ उदास है.
तू सुनता है पर कहता कुछ नहीं,
हसाता है पर खुद हस्ता नहीं,
संभालता है पर खुद सम्भला नहीं,
दोस्त, यह बात तो सही नहीं.
मानता हु तू तकलीफ में है,
छुपाना तू अब सीख गया है.
अगर आज नहीं आया तो कब काम आऊंगा,
दोस्त हु तेरा, शायद तू भूल गया है.
#Long_Post_on_Mental_Health_and_well_being (with a Poem, obviously)
Today on a sunny day from the distant land of India, I want to speak to my readers about their mental health. I cannot consult you on your physical health because I am not a doctor of any sorts but what I am is a Human being who understands the importance of communication and words.
So Hi to you sitting in the Western Hemisphere and to you in the region above the equator. Hello to those who are with me on this side of the planet and Howdy to those in the region below, I hope I have covered everyone. I know some of you are going through a phase and that phase is dreadful. But, just like every problem and situation, this too has a solution. DETOX!
You amazing people, you all need to realise that sometimes the misery is not because of anything that you did but only because your mind wants a break. So, first let me tell you when you should think about Detox… (Read the lines below)
When the mind seizes and thoughts go wrong,
Spring freezes and noisy seem the song,
Anxiety increases and nights go long,
Nothing pleases and nothing comes along,
Food seems bitter and unpleasant,
Friends seem disturbance even when they are present,
Even a small appreciation seems like flattery,
And everything just looks dull in its entirety,
It is then when you need to Detox.
Now the Question comes, how to Detox?
That’s simple actually. Detox means to do what you love. Like absolutely unconditionally LOVE. It could be reading, writing, painting, dancing, travelling, working out, eating food, cooking, watching movies and the list can go on and on and on.
Pick your hobby/passion and just go with it. Just like you body, give a quiet time to you mind as well.
And one thing we don’t hear enough, In case you need to talk, just share with someone. It helps, trust me.
You can even share them with me over mail in case you feel like opening up or just talking.
So, wishing all my soon to be happy and energized readers a Very Good Day!
Let’s do this!
खुद की आवाज
In the world of freedom and social media, I find it funny that people are facing more and more difficulty in expressing themselves. The constant fear of being judged and being looked down upon has made an entire generation a closed book.
Most common cause of depression is the absence of proper emotional outlet.
Something is not right, and I guess we all know what that something is. Let us encourage each other to speak our hearts out. Speak up, let your feelings to come out into the world and make sure you do the same for others.
I dealt with a problem similar to this some time back and it is daunting. A poet who plays with words looking for ways to express himself is both funny and sad at the same time.
I promise to be an ear for all those who need to speak for I know how important it is to speak up and get heard.
The Poet and the Pen is all ears and will be always there if someone needs an ear. But for now, let me tell you what I want everyone to hear. Come, I need to tell you something.
एक बात बताता हूँ
आओ तुम सबको एक बात बताता हूँ,
जो दिल में है उससे जुबान से सुनाता हूँ,
जीवन का मंत्र या कोई सीख नहीं,
बस अपने मन की बात कहना चाहता हूँ.
आसान नहीं है यह.
आसान नहीं है यह, मन की बात.
गलत का पता नहीं पर सही पे भी चोटिल होते है जज़्बात,
कब तक ध्यान रखु में?
क्यों न अपने मन की बात करू में?
किसीको बुरा न लगे तो एक बात कहना चाहता हूँ,
किसीको बुरा न लगे तो यह साफ करना चाहता हूँ,
यह मेरे दिल की बात है, इससे आपका कोई नाता नहीं,
सुन सको तो सुनने क्युकी में तुम्हे बुलाता नहीं.
कहने दो जिसे जो कहना है,
उसके मन की बात है.
नहीं होता तो क्यों सुन्ना है,
बात तो सिर्फ जज़्बात है.
आओ एक बात बताता हूँ,
बोलने की आज़ादी मांगता हूँ,
कौन क्या सोचेगा नहीं पता पर,
दर्द होता है जब अपनी बात कह नहीं पता हूँ.
