It is an intrinsic human character to act deceptively and use camouflage for maximising our gains. No wonder many people who fall in love also tend to fall out of love after some time. Search for an ideal and perfect human is, therefore, like chasing a mirage, both just don’t exist.
Our personal bias and prejudices generally cloud our judgement, which make us think and act irrationally. We discriminate between people for reasons of our bias and prejudices. We humans are fallible and known for our strange behaviours.
Brass Buttons – a poem in Urdu, “Pital ke takme’”, by Bill Koul (with English translation after the Urdu version).
This poem fulfils a promise made decades ago, a time period that appears as ages now. It describes a moment when two young hearts met on the morning of a regular working day. Instead of heading to their respective work places, they headed to a beautiful Mughal garden (in Kashmir) where they spent a full magical day in Nature, in each other’s company. That day, she was wearing a dark blue blazer, with brass buttons, which cast a lasting spell on him; the brass buttons appeared like stars that adorned her moon-like appearance.
