A good friend called early morning to inform the sad demise of his father. As if last two days have not been hard enough.

Two days ago; I learnt accidentally about passing away of a good friend, when tried to reach out.

Intensified my attempt to reach out to another friend, who has not contacted me for last 4 months and it is definitely not like him for sure. Without a fail, he called me every single week, to ask me how I was doing, how is my family…and he has not called me for four months? None of his two phones working as well!

I am worried, sad…haven’t been able to sleep properly since last few nights. These are the people wanted to live life, had so much of plans…had so many wishes to accomplish and …

Jab jab dard ka baadal chhaya
Jab gham ka saya lehraya
Jab aansoo palkon tak aya
Jab yeh tanha dil ghabraya
Humne dil ko ye samjhaya
Dil aakhir tu kyun rota hai

Duniya mein yunhi hota hai
Yeh jo gehre sannaate hain
Waqt ne sabko hi baante hain
Thoda gham hai sabka kissa
Thodi dhoop hai sabka hissa
Aankh teri bekaar hi nam hai
Har pal ek naya mausam hai
Kyun tu aise pal khota hai
Dil aakhir tu kyun rota hai..

When the cloud of sadness came over,
when the shadow of sorrow waved,
when tears reached eyelids,
when the lonely heart was worried,
I told the heart….My heart, why do u cry?

It happens in the world,
the deep silences that are there,
time has given them to all,
a little sorrow is part of everyone's story,
and everyone has got some sunshine,
your eyes are wet for no reason,
every moment it's a new weather,
why do you lose moments like that, My heart, why do u cry…?

Look after yourself friends….lots of love... Goodnight!
