पहचान और परछाई /Identity and Shadow

दूसरों की छांव में खड़े रहकर हम
खो देते हैं अपनी पहचान
और अपनी परछाई भी,
खुद को धूप में खड़ा करने से ही
मिलता है खुद की पहचान
और परछाई दोनों…


Standing in the shade of others
we lose our identity,
our shadow too,
standing in the sun gives us
both our own identity
and our shadow…

–Kaushal Kishore

  1. This is a beautifully expressed thought as India is on the verge of celebrating its national identity.
    Because of the time difference, might I, Kaushal, wish you for tomorrow,
