What lies behind the facade?


Forest Park, 110815.

Appearances can be deceptive.

न जाने हसीं के पीछे कितने आँसू पिए जा रहे हैं
न जाने दिल पे कितने भोज उठाए जा रहे हैं
न जाने कितने दर्दों पर होंठ सीए जा रहे हैँ
न जाने कितने मुश्किलों को छुपाकर बस यूँही जिए जा रहे हैं....

(Perhaps, behind the smile, tears are being shed
Perhaps, within the heart, loads are being borne
Perhaps, swallowing hurt, lips are tightly sealed
Perhaps, hiding difficulties, life is being lived....)
