गुलाब दिवस / Rose Day

गुलाब के फूलों को देते हुए
कांटों को फूल वाली ने
इस करीने से सजाया
कि मुझे कांटे न चुभे,
मैं ने उसे कांटों को हटाने को बोला,
उसने मुस्कुराते हुए जवाब दिया,
“कोई और फूल ले लो साहब,
गुलाब का क्या औचित्य
कांटों के बिना?”


While giving roses,
the florist decorated
the thorns in such a way
that they do not prick me,
I told her to remove the thorns,
but she replied with a smile,
“Take any other flower, sir,
what is the relevance of roses
without their thorns?”

P.S. Life is also like a rose.

Happy Rose Day 🌹🌹🌹

  1. Thank you, Kaushal, for your philosophical observation which reflects in a few wonderfully apt words what life is as compered to rose. The florist comment is
    wisdom personified, and reminds me that I might be lucky and have a few roses
    since this Sunday is my birthday.
    Perhaps, Kaushal, I could have this beautiful rose?

    1. Thank you, Joanna, for appreciating the piece. It’s really my pleasure to share what actually happened today. You will have a plenty of roses, on your birthday, not in your evergreen garden, but also from your passionate readers like me in this forum. I’ll keep that rose for you. Happy birthday well in advance!


  2. Ahh this is marvelous, dearest KK. I absolutely love the meaning in this one and your beautiful storytelling voice. I will now always think of this piece in seeing a rose 🤍🤗🫶🏻
