इच्छाएं / Desires

इच्छाएं कभी मरती नहीं,
किंतु एक निश्चित समय के बाद,
उन्हें पूरा करने की इच्छा
जरूर मर जाती है,
येन केन प्रकारेण…


Desires never die,
but after a certain time,
the desire to fulfill them
definitely dies,
for some reason or the other…

–Kaushal Kishore


    1. Thank you, Joanna, for your interesting comment! Even young ones may have to give in due to pressure from spouse or family. And a person without passion gets old. It’s also a fact.


    1. Thank you! I have an uncle who had a strong desire to go for Himalayan trekking, but looking to his wife’s medical conditions, he has shelved the idea altogether. So the reason may be any damn thing.

  1. Ahh this is so perfectly said. You are a genius with wordplay, my friend. And the way you dance in the paradox of simple yet deep is always enchanting to read. Well done as always 🤍🤗
