हम तोह ऐसे है

वोह क्या है जो हमें अलग बनाता है? हमारी सभ्यता हमारे संस्कार या हमारी विशेषता? हम सारी दुनिया से निराले है. छोटी छोटी बातों पे हम एक दुसरे से लड़ते है. पर जब दुनिया से लड़ना हो, तो हम एक मुट्ठी बन जाते है. दुनिया में सबसे ज्यादा विद्वान हमारे देस मैं है, पर हम किसी को नीचा नहीं दिखाते. हम अतिथि देवो भव में विश्वास रखते है. पर प्रांती लोगो का हम सम्मान करते है, भले ही वोह उनके देस मैं हमारा अपमान करे.
हमारे लिए क्रिकेट और बॉलीवुड भगवान् के सामान है, पर अपना भारत भगवान् से बढ़कर. भारत में सबसे से ज्यादा जातियों के लोग बसते है, पर हम एक दुसरे का सम्मान करना जानते है. हम बदले मैं नहीं, माफ़ करने में विश्वास रखते है, शायद इसीलिए लोग हमारा फायदा उठाते है. इकनॉमिक मेल्त्दोवं के समय हम उन चन देशो में से हैं जो प्रगति कर रहे है, पर हम अब भी परदेस बसने के सपने देखते है. हमारे देस में हर एक जन को सपने देखने की इजाज़त है, भले ही वोह ऊँची जाती का हो या नीची.
ये दुनिया पहला देस है जहां हर जाती के व्यक्ति ने हमारे देस की सत्ता संभाली है, और हमने उससे स्वीकार किया है. क्यूंकि हम पहले हिन्दुस्तानी है और बाद में हिन्दू या मुस्लिम. हम अजीब है, हम अलग है, हम हिन्दुस्तानी है. हम जैसे हैं वैसे अच्छे है, और मुझे गर्व है की मैं अपने आप को एक हिन्दुस्तानी कह सकती हूँ.

That Silly Thing Called Love

Everyone harps on about being in or searching for love. Whenever we think of being in love we always see the situation with rose tinted glasses. What we fail to see is the innumerable times we get hurt, the mean heartless things we say to each other in our anger and the petty mind games. Anyone who tells me that their relation has never had any of these issues is either deluded or never been in a real relationship.
Love is one of the most abstract concepts in the world. No one can truly define LOVE. No doubt each and every person believes they truly understand what love is about, but if asked to explain it can put even the most knowledgeable people on the spot. My fledgling understanding of the concept actually makes me afraid of being truly in Love. I have always been someone who is independent and cares about myself more so than others. For me to be truly vulnerable to another person is actually frightening rather than something I crave. No I’m not going to turn into a bitter spinster, but the concept of love according to me vastly over rated. Sad as it may sound, I think, it is easier to love animals and inanimate objects rather than humans. Inanimate objects don’t expect anything from you in return and animals can’t back stab and take advantage of you.
For all its critique, I still want to be in love (again??) at some point in my life. Why is it that we crave that bitter sweet feeling? Because Love is like that never ending maze, the one that you can’t get out of completely, but yet want to be in for the adventure and the surprise element. You never know what you will experience on the path to your search for your soul mate. Robert Frost thinks life is about taking the path less travelled, but I guess it’s more about the taking the path frequently travelled and yet standing out with your own identity. So to conclude, finding love does not mean finding a person with whom you can walk on the beach and whisper sweet nothings with. It is about the aftermath when you run out of sweet nothings and still have tons to talk about. It is about the constant interest which just grows over time. It is about not running out of things to say, but finding a new topic every day. It is easy to have fun the first few years of being in a relationship, the true test of love is when you can sit for hours without saying a word and yet convey volumes.
