You Need A Break

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 39; the thirty-ninth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "Break"

You Need A Break

"You need a break! You need a break!
अपनी परेशानी उठाकर dustbin में फेंक,
Don't eat it now like a piece of cake,
You need a break! You need a break!"

Raghav heard these words on radio,
while coming back to home from studio.
He stopped the car and note that number,
since tensions are his life's permanent member.

Break from monotonous life,
Break from the nagging wife,
Break from boss's strife,
"बाबूजी ले लो न ये तेज़ knife,"

Requested a young boy in his early teens,
Coming closer to the car's windscreen,
" नशे के लिए ये करते हो?","You don't have father?"
"उनके कारण ही ये हाल है,my dear big brother", 

"He remained busy with work,
ज़िन्दगी उन्हें लगने लगी थी नर्क,
Somebody told him to take a break,
दोसरों की ही सोचेगा,अपने को देख",

Left his work,went for family vacation,
and tried to restore his broken relation,
but when he returned after a month,
in his field he lost his reputable worth,

"किसी ने फिर काम न दिया,
घर,सामान सब बिक गया,
Soon he went into depression,
died,dragging us in this condition",

"Sir!ख़ाली होना ही जीवन की सब से बड़ी सज़ा है,
get involved in life,इसी में ही ज़्यादा मज़ा है,
He purchased knife and throw out that number,
Keep work & wife in balance to be cool as cucumber,

Some wants any kind of work,
पर किसी को नहीं कोई फर्क,
So,do take some short break,
but never put your life on stake.
