Woolly Delights

पर्व प्रकाशाचा

सण हा सुखाचा, सण हा दीपकांचा
सण हा प्रेमाचा, सण हा भारत देशाचा.
उजळुनी टाकी देशाला, जणू उतरल्या पृथ्वीवर तारका
पसरवतो आनंद चहुकडे, प्रत्येक क्षण होई साजरा

एकच खंत वाटे मजला,
असा हा सण लपला कुठे आता?

बहुतेक असावा गहीवरला तो या आवाजानी,
या फटाक्यांनी केली असावी त्याची ही दशा.

कुणी म्हटले दिवाळी हा कर्कष्य आवाजांचा सण असतो?
आम्हास वाटे हा अंधारावर प्रकाशाच्या विजयाचा सण असतो.

असा कसला सण हा, जो जातो दु:ख देऊन?
फटक्याचा विस्फोट झाला, मनुष्याला गेला यम घेऊन.

प्राणीमात्र नाही सुखी, करूया काही बदल
चला तर फटाके न फोडण्याचे द्या मला वचन.

The Soundtrack to my Life

The massive tower crane across the street hums incessantly. Rising and falling like a siren that whistles and screams, as the metal at the end of its cables clatters and scrapes along the roof of the monster block being built right in front of my windows. 1,134 more words
