In the contemporary world,
Our lifestyle has changed, we have curled.
With the car in my house,
I have stopped walking, relaxing in my Couch.
Seeing the videos, I forgot to read the books,
How we once enjoyed reading in corner and nook
With my mobile in my hand,
I forgot all numbers, poor memory stand.
No more spell vocab or dictations,
I forgot spelling and meaning explanation.
In the heat, I shut myself in AC rooms,
I forgot to enjoy the breeze of shady trees and its natural perfume.
When I have to talk to my parents I set an alarm,
I forgot to talk to them, life is busy loosing charm.
Birthdays, anniversaries are all in notes,
I forgot all loving words, I Google quotes.
In this rush to succeed, our relations disappear,
What is the purpose of life, how to steer?
I came to town to wear the success crown,
I forgot the fragrance of my village mud profound.
In puja, we had lovely aroma of flowers,
Now, all artificially decorated stars.
The online food and frozen seals,
I forgot to cook my traditional meals.
I don’t remember when I had the turmeric milk,
Oh! I get all in boxes and bottles with packing silk.
Sad, I don’t remember my old friends,
I only message on whatsapp, the story ends.
Often I sit like a stranger in my house,
Playing with laptop and its mouse.
The mind replays, what hearts cannot delete,
As humans, our relations are precious we cannot cheat…
I don’t want to forget you; you are not number one, Hey for me you are my only one… my only one…
