हेच व्हायचे पुनः पुनः

3 Mar

We often use the trivial question of whether one sees the glass half full or half empty to discuss pessimism and/or optimism. I personally feel that both these philosophies are intertwined with an ultimate aim of reaching the golden equilibrium. Maybe a state where pragmatism dictates everything else. And that is when pragmatism asks its usual question – whether your desires match with what you deserve?

I think this very tryst with handling the tight rope walk between taking a step forward and looking over the shoulder into the past is what fizzled up in the following poem. Every challenge and every struggle reiterates the need to perceive.. the need to persevere… again and again..

Disclaimer: This is the first time I have attempted to write a poem in my mother tongue, Marathi. Apologies to the readers who do not understand the language. Although I tried to come up with a translation, I don’t think I would be able to do a good job at it. To all those who understand Marathi, feel free to comment and critique. I would be more than happy to know what you feel about the poem. For those who want to give translation a shot, you are most welcome.. 🙂

ओंझळीत तू घेउनी स्वप्ने,

घे भरारी उंच नभा,

हेच व्हायचे पुनः पुनः.


पुनः एकदा नवीन आशा,

जुनी वळणे , नव्या दिशा,

पुढे जायच्या घाईमध्ये ,

क्षणभर मागे वळून पहा,

हेच व्हायचे पुनः पुनः.


पुनः एकदा नवीन नाती,

जुने रण, अन् नवी नीती,

गुंत्यांच्या ह्या गुंत्यामध्ये,

मुक्तछंद तू विहरत राहा,

हेच व्हायचे पुनः पुनः.

    पुन्हा एकदा नवी कविता,
    साधे शब्द , अन् सोपी कल्पना,
    अशा नव्या शैली मधे,
    कविमन तुझे फुलवत रहा,
    हेच व्हायचे पुनः पुनः.

    छान कविता रे! म्हटलं कवितेमधेच दाद द्यावी !
