सेज / Bed

जरूरत नहीं सोने के लिए
सोने की सेज की,
सेज बन सकती है
किसी भी चीज से और कहीं भी,
जरूरत है तो बस
थके हुए शरीर की,
नींद भरी आंखों की,
और निश्चिंत आत्मा की…


A golden bed is not needed
to have a sound sleep,
a bed can be made
from anything and anywhere,
what is needed is
a tired body,
sleepy eyes
and a carefree soul…

–Kaushal Kishore

  1. Totally!
    On reading this, I had a flashback of sleeping on the ground with small stones .(During our ‘Muzdalifah Night in Hajj’) me and my family had been walking for hours and we were super tired. My brother stayed awake to keep watch, but me and my ma slept peacefully. It was the best sleep I had. 🙂

    1. I agree with you, the quality of bed becomes immaterial when one is exceptionally tired. I remember I had gone to attend an interview in Bangalore, but I couldn’t get reservation and throughout my return journey spanning over 40 hours, I couldn’t sleep. When I returned to Varanasi, I slept uninterrupted for more than 20 hours.
