कभी कभी दिल चाहता है, यूँ'ही कोई क़रीब आये... न कोई सवाल पूछे, न ज़वाब मांगे, बस बिना कोई वजह यूँही सर पर हाथ रख के कहे "सब ठीक हो जायेगा....."
Sometimes, all you want is for someone to be there. No questions asked, no judgments passed..to just put their hand on your head and say in that caring tone for no reason at all "everything will be alright.."
But do people even have the time to do that anymore ? "How are you?" has just become a sentence that has to be spoken when they meet or over the phone. People are not really interested in knowing how the other person really is. They do not have the time to hear of your problems if you have any, because they are far too busy talking of their own.
Mehdi Hasan's ghazal echoes in my mind...
सबकी सुन कर चुप रहते हैं दिल की बात नहीं कहते
आते आते जीने के भी लाख बहाने आ जाते हैं.....
