viraam / pause

barti huyi kathputliyon jaise
pade huye ye manushye
jeev vibhinn, aur ajeev
aaj ka parv khatam hua
kal phir se
doriyan khichoonga inki
phir shuru hoga manchan
jeevan ka

ratri ke is antim prehar mein
sutradhar inka
kar loon thoda vishram abhi

attempt at translation, somebody who can enhance it, is always welcome…

these beings, strewn across
like used puppets
varied forms, living and not
the episode today has ended
tomorrow again
will pick their strings
once more
the play will start
of life

in this last hour of night
their director
want to have a little rest now
