मत पूछो ये हाल मेरा,
है थामा ऐसा जाम मैंने,
की सच बोल गया तो,
उतर जाएँगे ये चेहरे सुनहरे,
आज चुप हूँ तो शायद देख रहे हो तुम भी,
कल जो बोल पड़ा इस मेहफ़िल में तुम्हारी,
फिर कहाँ छुपाओगे वो दाग गहरे…..

Do not ask for how I am,
My glass holds a wine dear,
This mouth if calls a name true,
Shine will shy away from faces white,
You look at me for I am mum,
My lips if will spill the secrets in your gala spectacular,
Scars will follow till the memories testify….

    Oh man this is very powerful….. I will be pondering this through the day but I may need the writers insights later here but will wait for other comments to shed more light.
    Have a good one Kumar!!!! ❤️ Cindy

      1. Aha, well I love everything you write. You are most welcome Kumar.
        With all of the things i still need to learn, I expect I won’t have time for Hindi this lifetime. Hidden meaning will be investigated.. ❤️

  2. Is that you holding the lit match? “Scars will follow till the memories testify.” मैं यह समझता हूँ। और मुझे यह पसंद है। I get it. And I like it. I think it refers to people conveniently forgetting what they’ve done to hurt someone, denying it and then having “receipts” produced. क्या मैं सही हूं या नहीं?

    1. Wow that’s so awesome Lily. You can understand Hindi as well and you even got the essence right. 😇
      I’ll just correct you at one place, when you say that you understand it, you’ll say मैं यह समझती हूँ or ये मुझे समझ आ गया। 😇
      आप बिलकुल सही हैं लिली। 😇
      yes, that’s me holding a lit match. 😅
      Thank you for your lovely comment Lily. 😇
