Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

बचपन के दिन – Childhood days!

दूर गगन के छाव में, फुरसत के पलों के साथ ,

गुज़रा ज़िन्दगी के कुछ बेहतरीन साल, जिसे हम बचपन कहते थे

*

तेज़ धूप में खेला दिन भर, बेख़ौफ़ दोस्तों के संग,

न थी समय की परवाह, न था पढ़ाई का ज़ोर,

*

कभी कू छुक छुक रेलगाड़ी, तो कभी बरसात के पानी में चलती अपनी नाव

तितलियां पकड़ना, पडोसी के आम चुराना,दिन अपने बीते खूब निराले

*

टीचर की छड़ी की मार या कक्षा में मुर्गा  बनने पर भी,

न कोई शिकवा था, न कोई शिकायत

*

याद है मुझे बाबा की डांट, फिर काँधे पर भिठाकर सैर कराना,

माँ की हाथ के खाने पर उंगलिया छांटते रह जाना

*

छोटे थे ख्वाब हमारे, छोटी थी खुशियां, ज़रूरते थी छोटी हमारी

बस एक ही आस है अभी, कोई लौटा दे वो गुज़रे बचपन के दिन

*

Childhood Days

Under the open sky, with plenty of moments of leisure

we spent a handful of beautiful years, our childhood!

*

Playing all day long in the blazing sun, along with friends

without a bother of  time nor studies.

*

Puff puff went our train, our paper boats sailed in the rain water

Catching butterflies, stealing mangoes from the neighbour’s garden

Oh! those were days of sheer bliss.

*

In spite of the teachers caning, and punishing us in class

we had no issues or complaints.

*

I still remember Dad’s scolding,

then carrying us on his shoulder for an outing,

and mom’s finger licking cooking.

*

Our dreams, happiness and necessities, all were small,

Can someone return my  bygone days of childhood ?

      I can follow a little bit of Marathi as I studied in Bombay. But it’s been ages since I have had any touch with the language!

        Okay here it is

        आठवणी आजोळच्या ………

        एप्रिल-मे चे दिवस, शाळेला सुट्टी ….
        हातात नको पुस्तक-वही, हातात नको पट्टी.…
        सुट्टीच्या पहिल्याच दिवशी धावत गावी जाणं …
        अगदी शेवटच्या दिवसापर्यंत राहणं
        पडवीवरती, अंगणात पोरंच पोर
        कैर्या, आंबे, चिंचा आणि आंबटचिंबट बोरं …
        मुलींच्या भातुकल्या, सागरगोटे… बाहुल्यांची लग्नं
        मुलं मात्र दिवसभर उनाडक्यात मग्न ……
        उन्हात उनाडनं, चतुर आणि फुलपाखरं पकडणं …
        शहाळी, ताडगोळे, जांभळं, करवंद खाणं
        भेळ खाता खाता रोज सूर्यास्त बघणं
        वेळेचं नव्हतं भान मनाला नव्हता थारा
        दिवेलागणीच्या आधी ते घराकडे पळणं
        आणि हात-पाय धुऊन पटापट जेवून घेणं
        ती कातरवेळ त्या भुतांच्या गोष्टी
        देवाला नमस्कार करून म्हटलेली शुभंकरोती
        (आणि अचानक दाटून आलेली रिझल्टची भीती)
        झोपल्यावर आजोबांचे श्लोक, आर्या, दिंड्या
        व्यापार, सापशिडी, पत्त्यांचे डाव
        भक्तिगीतं, भावगीतं, सिनेमाची गाणी
        मामांच्या चेष्टा, मावश्यांची कौतुकं
        आजोबांचा प्रेमळ दरारा, आजीचा प्रेमळ हात
        नातवंडांना भरवलेला दहीदूध भात
        अंगणातला प्राजक्त, परसातली बकुळी
        विहिरीजवळचा सोनचाफा आणि दरवळणारी रातराणी …….
        आणि ती चांदण्यात ऐकलेली आटपाट नगरची कहाणी
        तीच एक होता राजा, एक होती राणी
        काळोखाच्या गाण्याला आता रातकिड्यांचा सूर
        हृदयात हळव्या आठवणी आणि मनातलं काहूर
        कशाला झालो एवढे मोठे आणि कशाला आलो
        गावापासून दूर ………

        This is so beautiful Kiran, though it took me some time to read it :). Quite similar to the one I posted. It describes the summer vacations so beautifully. The playful days, food, grandparents love, the fear of the exam results, the bedtime tales……..all so lovely 🙂 !! Thanks for sharing Kiran 🙂 I hope my understanding of the language is good !

    Carefree childhood with its simple eccentricities and fun-filled days, all a figment of the past. Brought back many memories of playing in the sun, eating with filthy hands anything that we can lay our hands on, climbing trees and what not! Thank you, Radhika, for taking me back to revisit those bygone days of happy childhood!

      Come to think of it, seriously my mother was never so strict about washing hands before eating. But we hardly fell sick. But today I get paranoid if my kids ever forget washing their hands when they come from outside!
      Glad that this poem kindled beautiful memories of your childhood 😊😊

        I can so totally agree. Wonder if the germs and unheard diseases have also gone on an overdrive these days as viral infections pop out of nowhere and I sometimes wonder if the overuse of disinfectants and hand wash has something to do with it.

        Could be! I have noticed that people who go overboard about hygiene are more susceptible to falling sick as it weakens their immune system. I am at times totally confused as to where to draw the line😥
