बस यूँही…..


.
.
A road in the countryside.

A road less travelled

A road without much hindrance and with serenity and peace.

Every single time I go down this road, I am reminded of an eternal favourite poem of mine.

The Road Not Taken


Robert Frost
.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Very poetic. The road left to itself, lonely and untrodden, beckons you with an assurance of getting peace and pleasure. A few lines from Tagore, albeit not in the same lines.

My joy lies in watching the days go by
The game of sun and shadow, the change of seasons
Who walk on this path bearing tidings of joy-
I remain happy by myself as the gentle breeze blows
I will stay awake by the door the whole day-
To see that very moment if by chance you come my way,
Till then I sing and smile to myself
Sitting idly while the air fills with fragrance of promise.

नैन लगाए बैठे है उस राह पे जिस के रहगुजर तुम थे,
आश लगाए बैठे है मंजिल मिलेगी जिस के साथी तुम थे,

बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….

कभी हाथों में हाथ डाल साथ चले थे,
बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….
कभी हमसफ़र रहने की कसमें खाई थी,
बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….
कभी जमाने से टकराने की चाहत थी,
बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….
कभी साथ-साथ उंडी आहें भरी थी,
बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….
कभी एक ही मंज़िल के लिए दौड़े थे,
बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….
कभी सुंदर सपनों के महल सजाए थे,
बस इतनी सी तो बात थी….

बस अब इतनी सी बात है….

तेरा हाथ जो छूटा मानो सारा जग छूटा,
बस अब इतनी सी बात है….
तू जो हमसफ़र नहीं तो फिर सफ़र नहीं,
बस अब इतनी सी बात है….
जमाने से तो क्या खुद से हार गए है,
बस अब इतनी सी बात है….
आहें क्या बस अब सांसे चल रही है,
बस अब इतनी सी बात है….
मंज़िल क्या अब जिंदगी बोझल लग रही,
बस अब इतनी सी बात है….
महल तो क्या,तेरे बिना अब जग लगे सुना,
बस अब इतनी सी बात है….
