बस यूँही……

This roadside flowering plant is an awe inspiring one to me.

Typifying the recurring cycle of rebirth and survival.

Cosmos sulphureus is from the sunflower family of Asteraceae, also known as sulphur cosmos and yellow cosmos. It is originally a native plant of Mexico and Central America as well as adjoining parts of South America. Over the centuries it has reached and naturalized in other parts of the world, including both the Americas,  as well as Europe, Asia, and Australia. With the onset of the rains, the plant which has self sown itself breaks out into green shoots and by August has started blooming. By the end of August and early September it reaches the zenith and the country roads are converted into warmly welcoming avenues lined by hundreds of thousands of these flowers. Driving or walking through them is an extremely joyous and exhilarating experience. The contrast of green and the bright yellow is striking and visually extremely pleasing. In a few months, the plants which grow between 4 and 8 feet tall, wither and disappear, only to rise another year…..

हर शिकस्त मेरी सफ़लता का पहला पड़ाव रहा,
हर इम्तहान जिंदगी के मेरा एक और तजुर्बा रहा,
हार का गम किसे, हौसला मेरा आज भी और बुलंद रहा….

रख हौसला वो मंज़र भी आएगा,
प्यासे के पास चल के समन्दर भी आएगा,
थक कर ना बैठ शिकस्त खाने के बाद…
मंज़िल भी मिलेगी और मिलने का मज़ा भी आएगा ।
