Ek Kissa..

Hello!

Here I am completing the fourth task of the ‘Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge’ called Hunt a Haiku. For this, I have written a reminiscential episode in Hindi based on the haiku I chose.

The challenge goes like this:

Given to you are five haiku’s. Pick any one and write your interpretation to it. You can build a story and make the haiku part of it. You can continue the haiku and make another poem out of it. Let the creativity wander and hunt it down the way you want.

I chose Haiku 02, which is: 

the sun will set slow
people go home for shelter
sun will rise again

Interpretation: To me, the haiku suggests how monotonous and mechanical our lives have become today. Each morning we get up, sprint to our work places and then after another hectic day, retreat to our homes, complete many house hold tasks, eat and sleep only to get up the next day, and repeat the same routine like a clockwork mouse. The zeal with which the work and life was earlier lived is lost somewhere in this race against time. This way of life has become so deeply rooted in our minds that we do not even notice how far we keep sinking into this rut, ignoring our body, health and relationships. 

My story for this challenge is based in the above theme, poignantly highlighting the eye-opening meet of the protagonist with herself and her relationships. Hope you will be able to relate with the emotions and experiences she goes through, in my first writeup in Hindi 🙂

Its better to learn yourself than waiting for life to teach you the essential lessons, the hard way. What do you say?  I Hope you liked the ‘Kissa’!

And So, the task is hence complete!

Successful hunt!

    I didn’t understand your story of course, but I liked your interpretation of the Haiku. It’s cool that you write in your notepad rather than just type things in. You have really neat handwriting in both languages 🙂

      Firstly, Thank you so much for taking time to read the post, even though the major part was in Hindi. So this comment came as a surprise. :p

      I’m glad to know that you liked my interpretation of the Haiku. It saddens me to think this way of life has become a routine for many in which we have to fight for taking out time for ourselves and others many a times.

      Yes, my first drafts are always on my diary. That helps me to cumulate thoughts and ideas better.
      Lastly, I’m happy to know you liked the handwriting. Thanks!

    When i has pen down this haiku, all i had in mind was ‘sun’. It was nice to read this interpretation. 🙂 True. We do all are in daily repeats like a machine life and it definitely demands creativity every day!

    I am very slow at reading Hindi. Very. I read like a kid who has started learning. I will read that part some time soon.. 🙂

      Different minds, different perceptions. To say the truth, I can never think of it as only being about the ‘sun’ :p
      Glad you found this interpretation nice too. Thanks!
      Hope you will read the story whenever you get time 🙂

    A great haiku chosen by you with an equally interesting interpretation. I also loved the story you weaved around it and found a strong emotional connect. :’) And yes, as I commented in the Challenge part 2, you have a very handwriting in both the languages. I thoroughly enjoyed the read! 🙂
