संतुलन / Balance


एक ओर मंजिल है तो दूसरी ओर मोहब्बत
एक ओर हसरत है तो दूसरी ओर आदत
दिल और दिमाग के बीच चलती जंग
हालात को और भी बिगाड़ देती है,
तलाश रहा हूं एक रास्ता बीच का
जो इधर भी जाए और उधर भी…

There is destination on one side
and love on the other,
on one hand there is ambition
and habit on the other,
the battle going on
between heart and mind
only worsens the situation,
I’m looking for a way that goes
this way and that way too…

      1. I remember Oprah Winfrey’s quote that you can’t have or do everything at the same time. So priority has to be decided. But my key to happiness is simplicity, not in what we wear, but in our thoughts, behaviour and words.

  1. Thank you, Kaushal, for another picture of the hundsom confused Bollywood star we all know,
    and his dilemma resonates with all of us. Swami used to advise to go with the heart,
    and I would be inclined to agree with the Guru.

    1. Hahaha, confused bollywood star! But, Joanna, I’m also a follower of Swami, I tend to take side of heart. It’s more logical than mind. Thank you, Joanna!

  2. Such an interesting dilemma as you state it here, but after reading you for a year or two, I think when push comes to shove, you will always lead with your heart. It’s who you are and also why you’re a poet:) ❤️🌹

    1. You’re right, Karima! Despite the age old battle between heart and mind, I tend to take side of heart. It’s but natural. Thank you, Karima, for such generous words for me. Much appreciated 😊💖💐🙏
