Der lagi toh kya….still Go and Kiss the World ;)

Finally I could dare to take a sabbatical from work…from the past one week am enjoying each and every moment of this break….my heart tells me “Der lagi toh kya….still Go and Kiss the World ;)” ….may be this particular phase of life where I feel I have “Nothing to Prove to Anyone” is called Happyness……

As a first step….I did not miss spending time in the Nilagiri Hills….Mother Nature has some magic….I am not trying to be filmy or dramatic…felt happy walking on green grass early morning in coool weather without slippers…..felt happy plucking leaves, picking dried leaves, small & dry branches in pine forests, among huge huge eucalyptus trees….could not stop crying with joy watching colorful flowers…..its a magic…throwing all the work, study, worry about today or tomorrow aside….I did have a good time at forests and hills…..

I am so happy that finally NOW i can leisurely learn carnatic music on Veena, Focus on Gardening, Read and re read all good new and good old books, cook all favorite foods of parents & mine….learn yoga…..I can’t believe that I am doing all these already….Thankyou God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Movie: Zindagi na Milegi Dobara
Composer: Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Singer: Shankar Mahadevan

Der lagi lekin maine ab hai jeena seekh liya
Jaise bhi ho’n din maine ab hai jeena seekh liya
Ab maine ye jaana hai, khushi hai kya, gham kya..
Dono hi, do pal ki hai ruttein
Na yeh thehre na rukein
Zindagi do rangon se bane
Ab roothe, ab mane
Yehi toh hai, yehi toh hai, yahaan

It took time, but I learnt to live,
however be the days, I have learnt to live,
now I have known this, what’s happiness and what’s sorrow
both are weathers of two moments
neither they wait nor stay
life gets made of two colors,
now angry, now placated,
this, this is here..

Der lagi lekin maine ab hai jeena seekh liya
Aansuon ke bin maine ab hai jeena seekh liya
Ab maine, Yeh jaana hai kise kahoon apna
Hai koi, jo yeh mujh se keh gaya
Yeh kahaan tu reh gaya
Zindagi toh hai jaise kaarvan
Tu hai tanha kab yahaan
Sabhi toh hai, sabhi toh hai yahaan

It took time, but I learnt to live,
Without tears, I have learnt to live
Now I have known whom to call mine
there is someone, who has told me
where have you been left,
life is like a convoy,
when are you alone here (you never are)
everything, everything is here..

Koi sunaaye jo hansti muskurati kahani
Kehta hai dil, main bhi sunoon,
Aansoo mein moti ho jo kisi ke nishani
Kehta hai dil, main bhi chunoon
Baahein dil ki ho baahon mein hi, chalta
chalun yunhi raahon mein
Bus yunhi, ab yahaan, ab wahaan

when someone tells a happy, cheerful story,
my heart says, I’d listen too,
If there are pearls in tears, someone’s souvenir,
my heart says, I’d pick too..
I should be embracing my love only,
I should be walking just like that in the paths,
just like that.. now here, now there…
