Lessons learnt in the year 2020 : साल 2020 की सीख

Year 2020 was the year of learnings, some of which were lost in the hush hush of life's race and a few were just ignored in our own bliss of comfort. This year will hold a special place in each ones life and so do ours. 

Year 2020 has filled our hearts with immense emotions and must say a varied thoughts too, we have penned our thoughts in the poetic form that shares the lessons learnt and importance of them.

Aideu 2020 Poem - MeenalSonal

इस साल की शुरुवात भी हर साल  की तरह थी ,

नई  उमंगो से भरी कई बातें थी | 

पर धीरे-धीरे थमी घड़ी की टिक टिक ,

ना कही जाने की जल्दी ना किसी के आने की दस्तक | 

यह साल भागते कदमों को थमना सीखा गया ,

ज़िन्दगी की भाग दौड़ में ज़िन्दगी जीना सीखा गया | 

अचानक आबों हवा में महकी सुगंध ,

चहकी गौरिय्या जैसे सच हो गया उसका स्वप्न | 

जमीन से आसमां तक खिल उठा धरती का हर कण, 

जैसे लौटा दिया हो किसी ने वो पुराने अनमोल दिन | 

यह साल सबको प्रकृति के समीप ले गया ,

जीवन की सादगी की ओर आकर्षित कर गया |  

कमाल है! यह अनदेखा, अनोखा सा जीव,

सबके खोये मन को कर दिया संजीव | 

अमूल्य बातें जो धुमील सी हो गयी थी ,

सजा दिया उनको मन में बहुत बखूभी | 

यह साल कुछ ख़ास बात सीखा गया ,

सबसे दूर होकर पास होने का एहसास दे गया  |  

घंघोर उलझनों में जब डूबा मन हर क्षण ,

केवल आशाओं की ओर खोजता एक किरण | 

व्यर्थ न चला मानव बदलाव के पथ पर ,

नियति का बड़ा हस्तक्षेप जीवनी के रथ पर | 

यह साल बदलाव की लहर में जीना सीखा गया,

भीषण अँधेरे में उम्मीद में जीना सीखा गया |
