So hard to let go; harder still to keep

It was hard to keep and harder to let go;
So I kept

And then........

It became hard to let go and harder to keep.

So I let go.... and so on

And then did the vicious circle ensue .....


Now what..... ?????

चलो अपने मन के अँधेरे कोने में सबसे पहला दिया जलाएं -Let's light the first lamp of Diwali within our selves



चलो अपने मन के अँधेरे कोने में सबसे पहला दिया जलाएं 

तमस वहां का विदा करें ;
जब अन्दर होगा प्रकाश,
तो वो शक्ति होगी हमारी मुस्कान में, वाणी में
के जब भी कोई जीवन छुएं हम
बस वो जीवन महकाएं 

चलो अपने मन के अँधेरे कोने में सबसे पहला दिया जलाएं


For friends who are not comfortable with the Hindi Script:


Chalo apne man ke andhere kone me sabse pahla diya jalayein
tamas wahan ka vida karein;
jab andar hoga prakash;
to wo shakti hogi hamari muskaan me, vaani me,
ke jab bhi koi jeevan chhuein hum,
bas wo jeevan mehkayein.

Chalo apne man ke andhere kone me sabse pahla diya jalayein :)



Note : Translation- Let's light the first lamp of Diwali within our selves. Let's throw out the darkness from within. When there will be light within us, there would be so much power in our smile and words, that we can fill with fragrance all the lives that we touch
