Dilon mein tum apni 

Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho 

Toh Zinda Ho Tum 

Summer of 2011, when I was in my early twenties, I had read these lines for the first time. Imraan, probably carrying a mountain of emotions in his little diary had penned another one of his pains. Probably writing may have helped him heal through his pain too. Which explains this writeup.

These lines are of a heart that seems to be hollow due to unbearable pain inflicting on it, yet the one that still beats and fights on, wanting to heal. The same rhetorical quotes are run through it in hope that it will heal one day. The kind of emotion Imraan was going through.

All the negativity and the pain that often weighs your heart down, signifies that you are still alive. You still are curious, you are vulnerable and yet you dream of a better tomorrow. And the word ‘zinda’ is exactly how you feel! Just while looking at the sunset or the waves of a sea for hours!

Winter of 2021, now I am nearly thirty two and have realised how true these lines are. Moreover, I have discovered an Imraan in me. As they say, pain is probably the most poetic emotion and an honest plea straight from the heart. Yet there is light at the end of a tunnel. Or so the cliche goes! As the lines go on…

Nazar mein khwabon ki 

Bijliyan leke chal rahe ho 

Toh zinda ho tum 

Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise 

Aazad rehna sikho 

Tum ek dariya ke jaise 

Lehron mein behna sikho

Har ek lamhe se tum milo 

Khole apni bhaayein 

Har ek pal ek naya samha 

Dekhen yeh nigahaein 

Jo apni aankhon mein 

Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho 

Toh zinda ho tum 

Dilon mein tum apni 

Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho 

Toh zinda ho tum
