Have you ever wondered why so much of importance is given to the firsts by our society, so much so that an entire advertisement was dedicated to as to who would be first to win the Indian Football League.
Why this fascination with the first? Isn’t second more or less the same as the first. After all, isn’t it just a number that was invented by I don’t know who, but someone intelligent enough to understand the very fundamentals of numerology.
The first kiss, the first girlfriend, the first and hopefully the only wife, the first baby, the first book you read, the first teacher whom you had a crush on in your school or college, the first time you won a medal, the first time you stood first in class, the first rank in a competitive examination; all the above have immense significance attributed to by the who’s who of our society.
To be honest, when I started writing this article, I had someone on my mind, but the time interval between having someone on my mind and having started actually penning down my thoughts, it took a different turn altogether.
And I deviated from writing about that someone to this particular one. Now coming back to that someone, and dedicating it to all those who believe that love happens just once, अर्ज़ किया है:
” ऐसा नहीं था कि तुम सबसे हसीं थे,
हाँ पर ये ज़रूर था कि बस तुम ही तुम थे,
तुम्हे देखने को जी ललचाता था,
तुम्हे ना देख पाने पर, मंन रूठ जाता था,
तुम्हारी एक झलक के लिए हम कुछ भी कर जाते थे,
फिर भी कभी कभी हम तुम्हे समझ में ना आते थे,
दिल से बस यही फरियाद निकलती थी,
एक बार जीने को फिर से उम्मीद हो उठती थी,
कहते थे हम सबसे कि हमें तुम मिल गए हो,
मानो जैसे खुद के तुम फ़रिश्ते बन गए हो….”
