This poem is inspired by an unmentioned reader. God has given everyone the right to love. And when everyone can love, why can’t a girl?
This poem is basically on the feelings that a girl has for someone, someone whom she doesn’t know, but feels an undefined bond for.
She wants to go and talk to him, wants to know his name, his birthday date. She wants to find meanings of their names and link them, but she can’t.
She can go and tell her friends she likes him, but the same thing she can’t go and say to him, because our current society and their mentality have never given a girl this right to go and tell someone that she likes him.
And even if she does, there is no assurity of how it will be taken. Many people think if she can come and say “I like you”, then she will be ready to do anything. But the same thing when a guy comes and says to a girl, it’s not taken in that way.
This poem defines the same feelings, where the girl can’t go and tell her feelings to that guy and she leaves everything to destiny, assuming this is a test of her patience, her love, and hopes that someday, he will come and say, “Hi”…
हर किसी से बयां कर सकती हू मे, मेरा इश्क़ तुझसे कुछ इस तरह से है... बस एक तू ही है बेख़बर इस दासता से, मेरी मोहोबत की आज़माइश कुछ इस तरह से है... नज़रों के सामने, जज़्बातों से बेखबर, हमारा नाता तुम से कुछ इस तरह से है... इंतेज़ार की हद, मोहोबत को बया करने की गुज़ारिश, हाल-ए-दिल का सरफर कुछ इस तरह से है... मेरी लकीरो में, तू है या नहीं, मेरी तकदीर की इम्तिहान, कुछ इस तरह से है...

After knowing her story, I have now asked her to go ahead and say Hi to that guy. After all someone has to bring the change, and that’s the theme of this women’s day #BeBoldForChange.
So lets see how their story goes ahead. I am super exited to see a happy ending.
