It is a night before Holi. Memories are still so alive, as it's just happened yesterday. The celebration was just like a riot of color, everything a little more hyped up than they should be.

Our eyes used to ate up the joy like a feast. After that we used to felt that we were supercharged and her head a little giddy. Everything about the color made her want to dance, her feet moving with grace and her heart beating with joy.

The celebration went on into the night, we used to dance like we had forgotten how to stand still. She wanted us to celebrate with a dance on the feet and a glass of wine in our hand.

I loved them all, I do, but now at this age all I want is to lie naked with her beneath a warm blanket and listen to the beating of her heart.

I dialed her number. Someone picked up call on the other side.

I said – Hello.

A prolonged deep silence and then she whispers – Where were you for so many years….how are you?

It’s more than twenty years that we have been separated from each other….twenty years….still she knows it’s me on the other side of the phone.....

The End

मुझे सुलाने की खातिर,

अनजान तेरे दुःख से मै सोया,
जननी, इतना धैर्य कहाँ से लायी ?

मेरी दुनिया तुमने जन्नत कर दी,
अपनी खुशियों की बलि चढ़ाई,
ये जन्नत तुझसे बढ़ कर नहीं माँ,
माँ, इतना बलिदान कहाँ से लायी ?

जब भी था मैं निरा अकेला,
साथ मेरे तू थी बन परछाई,

बेटा हो या बेटी ,है तो अपने आँगन का ही फूल , तो फिर आज के युग में बेटी का जन्म होने से पहले ही एक बेटी को माँ की कोख में ही मार दिया जाता है। उसे भी जीने का हक है। लोगो का मानना है कि जो मम्मी और पापा को स्वग॔ ले जाता है वह बेटा होता है।पर शायद लोग इस बात से अनभिज्ञ हैं कि जो स्वग॔ को घ....
