Ek Bhool Kafi Hai--A Poem From My Collection,Very Touching and Poignant

This poem was written a long time back by Mahesh 'Santoshi'.It is full of pathos and very much contrary to my philosophy of life but I love it-don't know why!

Ek Bhool Kafi Hai

Yaad bhool jane ko ek umr kam hai par--
Ek bhool kafi hai umr bhar rulane ko!

Ek saans jivan mein ek baar aati hai,
Baar baar lekin kyun aankh dabdabaati hai?
 Manchaaha aanchal to mushkil se milta hai,
Isiliye aansoo ko dhool bahut bhati hai!

Rup ke badhane ko laakh phul kam hain par--
Chaar phul kaafi hain arthiyan sajaane ko.

Kuch to man mrigjal ke peeche bharmaata hai,
Kuch man kaa meghon se maruthal saa naata hai,
Aashaa hi aasha mein honth sukhe jaate hain,
Kaun bujhe pranon ki pyaas bujhaa paata hai?

Praan-daan paane ko ek boond mushkil par--
Ek boond kaafi hai jindagi dubaane ko !

Praat kab hansaata hai,saanjh kab sulaati hai,
Kis kis se saanson ki kathaa likhi jaati hai,
Samay sabhi ghaavon ko,poor nahin paata hai,
Dabi hui pidaa bhi ubhar ubhar aati hai!

Dard ke mitaane ko,sau sau sukh kam hain par--
Ek dard kaafi hai laakh sukh bhulaane ko!

  1. Beautiful words - makes a lovely read, though one has to move on with life and mostly does not have the luxury to revel in grief.

  2. Weaving of words is nice ...but this is in contrary to my philosophy of life too.

  4. Lovely words but, like you, not my choice of philosophy. Ek dard ko hi lipatke rahenge to, haan, zindagi mein paaye gaye lakh sukh ko nazar andaaz kar sakte hain :)

    1. Very true Suresh.
      I guess some people are very very sensitive or maybe they have horrendous luck.

  5. True!

    But...

    har din ek nai umeed lekar aata hai
    kuch naye gham kuch nai khushiya de jata hai
    agar ek gham kaafi hai zindagi bhar rulaane ke liye
    to ek muskan bhi kaafi hai rote ko hasaane ke liye
    firk sirf itna hai
    tumne jana hai ek gham kaafi hai zindagi bhar rulaane k liye
    humne jana hai ek khushi kaafi hai har gham bhoolane k liye !

    Cheers
    Khushi! :)

  6. sad ------but true --

    -Praan-daan paane ko ek boond mushkil par--
    Ek boond kaafi hai jindagi dubaane ko !

    how ever positive we may try too be but the fact remains that

    Dard ke mitaane ko,sau sau sukh kam hain par--
    Ek dard kaafi hai laakh sukh bhulaane ko!

    but I suppose times are changing and people are becoming more positive than they used to be a few decades ago -----the fighting spirit has taken over many an untreaded paths

    thanks for sharing this poem Indu ji

  10. very true mam.. we tend to remeber a loss or bad time for longer than good times .. Ithink we need to change and try to keep the good times for longer ...
