FINAL DESTINATION, Poetry by Pavan Datta



All know the truth that Death is the only fact and final destination. Ultimately the final destination is known to all but still everyone keep on living in Illusion that he/she is going to be immortal.

Hard fact of Life is: The final destination of all human beings is either Mortuary or the Funeral place.

This was your only final destination…..

What did you get from your life……

You just wasted your life to reach here….

Your own people left you here alone after putting you to Ashes.

Your own people left you alone after putting you in Grave.

What did your Life had given you….

What did you get from this World….

All the persons on whom you were relying through out your life….

All those persons left you alone in ashes here.

All those persons left you alone in grave.

Every one got one Life to do some thing for mankind, But time is passing and the person is busy in making money and wealth.

What will you do with so much of wealth and money?

Whereas there is no pocket in the “cerements”

No cupboard and lockers to keep wealth in the “grave”

And My dear friends, the Gods of Death not even take any bribes.

अंतिम यात्रा

हर इंसान की अंतिम यात्रा समाप्त होती हे या तो शमशान घाट पर या कब्रिस्तान पर।

कुछ पंकितया जब एक आदमी को उसकी अंतिम यात्रा पर जलाने के लिए शमशान घाट या दफ़नाने के लिए कब्रिस्तान पर ले जाया जाता है :

मंज़िल तो तेरी यहीं थी बस…….

क्या पा लिया तूने ज़िन्दगी से……

ज़िन्दगी गुज़ार दी तूने आते आते…..

तेरे अपनों ने ही जला दिया तझे जाते जाते।

तेरे अपनों ने ही दफना दिया तुझे जाते जाते।

क्या दिया तुझे ज़िन्दगी ने….

क्या मिला तुझे दुनिया से…..

जिनको तूँ अपना समझता था !!

वही अपने छोड़ गए तुझे आज यहाँ जला के।

वही अपने छोड़ गए तुझे आज यहाँ दफना के।

मिली थी जिन्दगी किसी के काम आने के लिए,

पर वक़्त बीत रहा है धन कमाने के लिए.

कया करोगे इतना धन कमा कर?

न कफ़न मैं जेब है न कब्र मैं अलमारी।

और यह मौत के फ़रिश्ते तो रिश्वत भी नहीं लेते मेरे दोस्तों ।
