Sab Kahan ja rahe hain,

Sab kidhar ja rahe hain!

Kon si hai manjil,

Jisko pana chah rahe hain!!

              Kise hai sabit karna,

              kyun hai sabit karna!

              Kis tamge ki hai chah,

              Kiski tareef ki hai chah!!

Kyun hai sabit karna kis layak ho tüm,

Kyun hai ye diktana kya kar sakte ho tüm,

Kyun hai jaroori duniya ke perche chalna,

Kyun hai jaroori bhed-chal me shamil hona!!

             Kya pata kab ye  rasta achanak khatam ho jae,

             Kya pata kab ye  jindagy ekdam se ruk jae!

             Kuch Apne man ki kar le bande,

             Na Jane kis gali me jindagy ki sham ho jae!!


Where are we going,

Where is everyone going!!

Which is the destination,

Everyone wants to reach!!

          Whom you have to prove,

          Why do you have to prove it!!

          Which medal do you want,

          Which praise you yearn for!!

Why do you have to prove yourself,

Why to show what you can do!

Why is it necessary to follow the world,

Why is it necessary to be a blind sheep!!

               Don’t know when all this will end abruptly,

               Don’t know when this life comes to an end suddenly!

               Do something that you want,

               Don’t know when life will end in a trice!!

  1. Wonderful post Anita Ji. Deep insight!
    Why to prove, whom to show? What certificate I need, Whose certificate I need.

    All have deep meaning. If understood then we will never be a blind sheep. People are behind name and fame. Running after certificates in the society. Nothing is required for the inner Self which is my original Identity. But we need certificate from society, from friends, from relations……….and they dont give us inspite of dedicated love and selfless service.

    Anita ji you have chosen a fantastic topic. You are really a great philosopher.
    Wish you and your family a very Happy Deepawali.
    Stay blessed always.
    It was an excellent post.
    Best regards.🙏😊


    1. Thank you so much Arun Ji for understanding the meaning hidden in my words.🙏 Certificate means praise from people, acceptance from others on the effort we put in anything we do, regardless of knowing that it’s all just an illusion. Everyone is running for more money, higher levels, and more materialistic things they can buy. Forgetting that we just have got very limited time on this planet. We are not here forever. Neglecting their families they are serving companies they work for, despite knowing that the company will throw them out anytime.
      A very Happy Diwali to you and your family. Thanks for your kind words. Appreciate it. 🙂🙂


      1. Thank you so much for your beautiful comments. You have understood the truth, the reality. Every other persons, our friends, our family members, our children should understand that truth what you have mentioned.
        I hope our efforts will come true 😌
        Happy Deepawali. Regards 😊🙏
