Thought of the day

* जिंदगी क्या है * जिंदगी क्या है बस कुछ भावनाओं का खेल ! किसी से होता है मनमुटाव या किसी से मेल ! कोई तो सहन कर लेता है. कोई नहीं पाता झेल ! किसी किसी का तो निकल जाता है वास्तव में तेल ! हजारों वार खुद गल्तियां करे पर दूसरों पर करे गुस्सा ! किसी पर मुस्कराना तो बना लेता जिंदगी का हिस्सा ! रात और दिन ऐक कर देता खुशी से कमाने में पिसता ! वरदास्त नहीं होती किसी की बातें चाहे हो फरिश्ता ! प्यार पाके अपनों का बनाता है जो अटूट रिश्ता ! चुका क्यों न पाता है वह बनके ऐक फरिश्ता ! मौत से डर कर भागता रहता जिंदगी भर !
