अंतर / Difference

उसे दूर से देखा
एक धुंधली सी आकृति दिखाई दी,
कुछ पास गया
मुझे एक प्राणी दिखाई दिया,
कुछ और पास गया
तो मुझे एक इंसान दिखाई दिया,
मैं और आगे बढ़ा
तो मुझे एक मित्र मिला,
और जब मैं ने उसे गले लगाया,
मुझे लगा वह मुझसे अलग नहीं है,
वह भी मेरा ही है, मेरा अपना,
वैसे ही दिल और आत्मा के साथ
जैसा मेरे पास था …
दूरी कम करने से
अंतर दिखता है…


When I saw him from afar
I saw a blurry contour,
going a little further,
I saw a creature,
then I went a bit more,
I saw a man,
when I went a little further
I found a friend,
and when I hugged him,
I realised
he was no different from me
he was mine, my own
with similar heart and soul
that I had…
reduce the distance
to see the difference…

There are three images in the picture. These look like dog, rabbit and cat respectively. But zoom in to see the difference…

    1. You’re absolutely right, Suzette, proximity means a lot for a relationship. I’m happy that you liked this poetry. Thank you so much!


  1. Fabulous, Kaushal ji. You are super awesome. ♥️♥️♥️😊😊😊. The images are beautiful and tricky but nevertheless, give our brain some food for thoughts.

  2. Thank you, Kaushal, for this profound truth weaved in your clever poem.
    Being close to others is like walking in their shoes. We understand that they are often but not always (Putin!) just like us.
    As I have 20/20 vision I can see in full your interesting pictures! Thank you!

    1. Exceptions are always there, Joanna, but exceptions don’t make a rule. Thank you for appreciating the poem and pictures, but could you see the images in the picture without zooming in?


      1. Thank you, Kaushal, but like my very young face it is some genetic mutation, anomaly, together with huge now hair, nails I could kill with and the teeth that don’t see the dentist, only salt water.

        Blessings to the universe!

      2. You’re a super woman, Joanna! I think it’s a miracle, maybe courtesy organic garden and its vegetables and fruits. I’m glad to know. Stay blessed, always!
