Lap of Water : पानी से मिलो, पनाह देगा

Original concept, Script, Voice, Music : This poem presents a poetic and philosophical perspective on water. Water is like Universe in liquid state, see how it holds you. 

पानी से मिलो
पनाह देगा
गिरो आंख बंद करके
बेफिक्र…
संभाल लेगा
एक पल को तो
बेवफ़ा लगेगा
दम फूलेगा
निचोड़ लेगा
सांस पूरी

लेकिन उसके
नीले हरे रंग में
नशा है
चैन है
कब्र सा सुकून है

मूंद देगा
थकी हुई पलकें…
चुपचाप
आज मिला हूं एक जलपरी से
मिला हूं उसमें खेलते पानी से
ब्रह्माण्ड सा, शून्य सा विशाल

International Version

Close your eyes
And loose yourself
Have A free fall
Immerse your persona in deep water
You would realize
It accepts you
It starts caring you
Dissolving you

You on other hand
are engulfed under fear
Short of breath
Heart pounding
Want to hold tight your life
For Once it seems
Water would be a betrayer
At the same time
it gives you inner peace

It’s Like an affair with a mermaid

From here
inside blue-green deep water
starts a new journey within you
It’s cosmic
It’s like being zero
