Bachpan ka zamaana (childhood days)

hey readers,

one of my friends mailed me this very wonderful poem describing the period of childhood in a person’s life.. I felt like sharing it with you all.. for those who doesn’t understand hindi, i have written the translations in english…

Ek BACHPAN ka Zamana tha,

(There was once a period of childhood)

jisme Khushiyo ka khazana tha..

(which had a treasure of happiness)

Chahat Chaand ko pane ki thi,

(the desire to reach the moon)

par DIL titli ka Diwana tha..

(and butterflies fascinated the heart)

Khabar na thi kuch Subah ki,

(there wasn’t a concern for morning)

Na Shaam ka thikana tha..

(neither for evenings)

Thak-har ke aana school se,

(coming back from school all worked up)

Par khelne bhi jana tha..

(but going to play was mandatory)

Maa ki kahani thi,

(mumma’s stories)

Pariyo ka fasana tha..

(fairy tales)

Barish me kagaz ki naav thi,

(paper boats in rainy season)

Har Mausam suhana tha..

(every season was so dear)

Har khel me Sathi the,

(had so many friends)

Har Rishta nibhana tha..

(and every relationship was important)

Gam ki zuban na hoti thi,

(sadness wasnt described in words)

Na zakhmo ka paimana tha..

(neither were bruises shown)

Rone ki wajah na thi,

(there wasnt a reason to cry)

Na hasne ka bahana tha..

(neither there was any to smile)

Kyon Ho gaye hum itne bade,

(why have we grown up?)

isse achha to…..

“Wo Bachpan ka Zamana tha”

(childhood was much better than this stage)
