"मंज़िल की खोज में" (Manzil Ki Khoj Mein) - Poem by Ronak Sawant

मंज़िल की खोज में

चल पड़ा हूँ मैं

मुसाफ़िर हूँ यारों, गिर जाऊँगा

लेकिन उठकर फिर से मुस्कुराते हुए चलने लगूँगा


ये मंज़िल है मेरी

है मेरी ये खुद की

ज़िद नहीं छोडूँगा

हार नहीं मानूँगा


चाहे कितनी भी मुश्किलें आ जाए

हर मुश्किल को मात देकर, मैं मुमकिन का रास्ता अपनाऊँगा

सरफिरा हूँ यारों, शायद भटक जाऊँगा

लेकिन यूँ ही भटकते-भटकते

अपनी मंज़िल तक ज़रूर पहुँच जाऊँगा


जो करना है मुझे, वही करूँगा

जो पाना है उसे मैं हासिल करूँगा

मंज़िल मिलेगी मुझे पूरा यक़ीन है

शायद मेरे ख़्वाबों में कुछ अज़ीन है


हौसले हैं मेरे बड़े

मंज़िल है मेरी अनोखी

उसे पाने की चाह में

निकल पड़ा हूँ मैं

मंज़िल की खोज में



कवि - रोनक सावंत




"Manzil Ki Khoj Mein"


Manzil ki khoj mein

Chal pada hoon mai

Musafir hoon yaaron, gir jaaunga

Lekin uthkar phir se muskuraate hue chalne lagunga


Yeh manzil hai meri

Hai meri yeh khud ki

Zidd nahi chhodunga

Haar nahi maanunga


Chahe kitni bhi mushkilein aa jaaye

Har mushkil ko maat dekar, mai mumkin ka raasta apnaunga

Sarfira hoon yaaron, shayad bhatak jaaunga

Lekin yun hi bhatakte-bhatakte

Apni manzil tak zaroor pahunch jaaunga


Jo karna hai mujhe, wahi karunga

Jo paana hai usey mai haasil karunga

Manzil milegi mujhe poora yakeen hai

Shayad mere khwaabon mein kuch azeen hai


Hausle hain mere bade

Manzil hai meri anokhi

Usey paane ki chaha mein

Nikal pada hoon main

Manzil ki khoj mein

Cover Photo: A Free Bird - Ronak Sawant

A few days before I realised that my life is nothing but a holiday.
A holiday where I can do anything I want,
A holiday where I can be anywhere in any place,
A holiday where I can be me,
A holiday where I can be free.
Yes, free like a bird! Doing what my heart wants to and what I want from this life.

Being a free bird doesn’t mean that you have a lot of free time, no work or no worries in life. It signifies that you are doing what you love and what you want in life. In general, living a life on your terms.

I have been living this life as a free bird since my childhood days. I still remember how crazy and foolish I was as a child. I was the only child in the school that never went to any tuitions or classes. From 5th grade till now (my TY BSc I.T., last year of college) all that I’ve learned is in school lectures and all on my own. The reason for this is I didn’t like going to tuitions. Tuition teaches the same studies as taught in school. Above all, why do something with the help of others, when you can do it by yourself! Well, this was me! A self-taught, self-made! A free child! Yes, free like a bird!

As a child, I have done every little thing a child should do to make his childhood life count and make it memorable. I mean not like a typical child with a daily routine. Starting from school, then back home, lunch, tuition, home again, dinner and sleep. In my case I was different. Different as in, I was free. Yes, free like a bird!

From flying kites to running behind it,
From playing football, cricket, chess, snake & ladder to playing with marbles, top, etc.
From studying to dancing, singing out loud, etc.
From eating mom’s made delicious food to climbing the tree and plucking raw mangoes with friends!
Well, this was me as a child!

And, from living life with freedom to living life at fullest. That's who I am as a person! But now, the world I see through my eyes and the world I live in, the people in it, the so-called human beings! Oh, wait! Are they even humans now? Damn!

What has happened to the world? Where is this world running? Behind the race or trying to get along with this so-called race or trying to move forward! Mind you this rat race will never end, even though the people in it expire. We are all born, and we are going to die. Don’t you want to leave happy? Feeling, you did something that you loved, lived life as a free bird instead of being trapped in a cage. Don’t you think that we are making a fool of ourselves living the life in a box or cage?

To be tactful, why this goddamn world is so much on their phones and so much busy with their lives these days. I am thankful to God that in my childhood, instead of playing football on PlayStation, Xbox, computer or smartphone I played it with my friends kicking the ball on a ground having real fun and memory to cherish. The world is so much engrossed in their smartphones and so much busy with their own life that they don’t even have the time to look around themselves and see what beautiful happening & passing by at every moment.

They are living the blinded life with the eyes open and an unfree life with the mind and heart open, but being trapped in a cage. A cage that might get free someday or it may not! All the life we wait for this cage to get open. But does it get open? No! And when it gets, the time has already won the battle. So, why to wait for the cage to get open? The changes about what you want in life start from no one but you. So don’t think about anything, open the cage and then see how beautiful and free your life will be. Like a free bird!

A free bird is the best tag that defines who I am as a whole. Because like a free bird, I believe I have the wings in me since my birth that knows what to do, what not to do in life and how to live the life freely on my terms. If you want to have some real fun, make it count in life, meet me!

Every human being has wings in them like birds. But it’s left up to them whether to make use of it and fly, or cut it off and get trapped in a cage.

So, it's about being free. You only have one life. Do what you love and live your life, like a free bird.

"Find your freedom, live your free life!"
