Na jaane kyu aj fir bhar aya hai ye dil..
Kya ye hai kisi puraani yaad ka saraab,
Ya toota hai koi naya sa khwaab.
Kya chhoote daaman ki hai ye chhaap,
Ya uthle Paani me doobne ka hai pashtataap.
Chhota sa dil, na jaane na pahchaane,
Moorakh sa sabko ye Apne hai maane.
Bhool Jata hai aksar ye un khanjaron ka Dard,
Tez garmi me bhi saha hai bhavnaon ka Sard.
Shayad sochta hai ke Kahi jayega koi ise mil,
Par Abhi bhi Na jaane kyu aj fir bhar aya hai ye Dil.
Intzaar ki hai ye kaisi gustakh ghadi,
Jo lamhe ki har tik-tik sunai deti hai.
Ruka hai pal ya ruka hu mai kahi,
Andhere me tu roshni si dikhai deti hai.
Ironing shirt and applying perfume were useless things for him.
Combing hair and applying kajal were useless things for her.
Until they both started going to college together,
She fell for his scent,
And he fell for her beautiful eyes !!
Walking down the lush green road she smiled,
Bloomed merrily his heart like that of a child.
Even the gray walls got entwined with lovely vines,
But poor guy never understood any of those signs.
When your life starts seeming like a race,
And valors of past start mocking in your face.
Just remember a very simple funda,
Your Friends won’t let you be a broken anda!
Tanha si hai Zindagi-e-maasum ye aisi,
Bina kisi sath ke hi guzarti chalti hai.
Jaane-anjaane bana li hai aadat aisi,
Ke ab khud ki hi parchhai se darti hai.
I had a chance to prepare a 2 minute video which talks about reducing inequality in the society. Here is a transcript of the video.
Before I go about sharing my idea to reduce inequality in the world, let me succinctly explain what is inequality.
Inequality is basically a disproportionate distribution of goods, wealth, opportunities, reqards, status etc in the society. Most commonly used measurement is Gini coefficient.
But how does it actually surface? Well, when there is asymmetry in information, in knowledge, in skills, and that is what we need to balance if we were to stride towards equality.
From where does this asymmetry arise? Is it the complexity in perceiving knowledge and gaining skills? If it is so, then is it possible to simplify this learning curve and process.
Has this been designed and ingrained in a way that only a selected few can take advantage of it?
Well the onus is on us to uncomplicate things, to break these invisible barriers and be inclusive and to develop trust among ourselves so that every person can be a part of this growth.
By augmenting skills and knowledge of society as a whole and all individuals in particular, we can probably develop an open structure which is free from division in terms of status or money.
Certainly this has to be bolstered by core values and policies like progressive taxes, transparent and open trade, recognising the rights of people across all sections, being mutually respectful and sensitive towards environment. Denmark is a brilliant example that shows 35% reduction in inequality through progressive taxes and policies.
And who knows, AI, robotics etc may lead us all into an utopian world where robots work for us and generate wealth that is equally divided and just not money for the privileged few.
Please do share your valued opinions. 😊
