आवाज़ें – Aawaazein

चेहरों पर मुस्कुराहट लिए चले जा रहे हैं
नजाने कहीं शोर मच रहा था
कहीं गुस्से का तो कहीं सिसकियों का
तो कहीं धोके का खेल रच रहा था

खैर मुस्कान तो सिर्फ एक नकाब है
क्यूंकि ये तो वह आवाज़ें हैं जिनका साया मन के हर कोनो में जच रहा था|


Translation (by Ridhi Gupta)

With smiles plastered on our faces,
We keep walking through life’s phases,
Surrounded by sounds that portrayed,
The anger, the sadness,
And those of hearts being betrayed.
But we’ve always known those smiles as facades.
Because the voices we heard were those,
whose every intonation is like a hidden shadow,
in the corners of our mind they hide, they grow.
