दिल ने आज फिर आरजू की है
कि एक तमन्ना हो
और जिंदगी में उसे पूरी करने की
कोई जद्दोजहद हो!
मुआ वो ज़िन्दगी भी क्या
ना कुछ चाहा ना कुछ हासिल किया
ना कुछ पाया ना कुछ खोया
हाँ, मुश्किलें हैं राह-ए-मंजिल में
पर उस मंजिल का भी क्या
जो कोई भी पा ले
और उस मुसाफिर का भी क्या
जो बीच राह में हार मान ले...

आहट तन्हाई की...

पता नहीं क्यूँ आज
ठन गयी है खुद से ही खुद की
मन मस्तिस्क में हो गयी है
न जाने क्यूँ एक अनबन सी
शायद, शायद दूर कहीं सुन पड़ी है
आहट तन्हाई की...

हमें एहसास न था कि
एहसास भी हम कर पाए कभी
कि तेज तीछन धारा से
तट की ओर भी आयें कभी
बढ़ते ही गए हम
बढ़ते ही गए हम...

लगता है जरूरत आन पड़ी अब
एक सुनहरे पड़ाव की
जो मन ने सुन ली है अब
आहट मेरी तन्हाई की...

Enjoy your coffee

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers got together to visit old university professor. Conversations soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, professor went to the kitchen and brought a large pot of coffee and assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal. Some plain looking, some expensive and some exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand professor said - If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. It is normal for you to want only the best for yourself But that is the source of your problem and stress.

What all of you wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cup and were eying each other's cup.

Now if life is coffee, then jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold Life, but the quality of Life doesn’t change. Sometimes by concentrating only on the cup we fail to enjoy the coffee in it.

So don’t let the cups drive you... enjoy the coffee instead!
