It's like if it's just about yesterday When I stepped instead of crawl When I spoke It's like if I'm still that girl Who used to fall each step she took Who fumbled when she read a book When I look back it seems like It's still the little old me.
So I was just 1 year old when we shifted From Delhi to here, our home
When I was 2 it was the first time when I saw my whole family gathered on the terrace and it was all dark. Mom was holding me in her hands. I couldn't understand then what was happening. I thought may be someone is coming to visit.
And then he came, they greeted and wished each other and I was like it's the same moon though, what's so special.
I was really young to understand all this but it was fun for me, whole family sitting together spending some time that we usually didn't.
Then when I was 5 it was the time when I got to understand all this. So I always had a habit that I didn't shared my chocolates and candies with anyone except my father.
So I came up to him and offered him one. My mom grabbed me and said " baby you can't give him this now " And I said " but he must be hungry, he haven't ate anything since morning ". Mom said that he was praying and being a kid I didn't ended my questions there.
So then she explained me about Ramadan and the moment she finished I was like " when can I do this prayer " Mom said " surely someday but not now "
I was 11 when I did my first ever roza. I was very excited but it was summers and schools were open then so I went school daily. One day it was our games period and we were playing basketball.
Suddenly due to dehydration I fainted and the ball hit my knee and I even got some injury. So I couldn't continue ahead.
But after that I did it full month every year and I felt really great. I had a strange satisfaction that I had never felt before and it was beyond this world.
There was a time when this meant nothing to me but today it feels like a part of me. Like if I don't do it due to some reason then I get really upset.
The girl who then thought moon was just a moon now eagerly wait every year to see this moon during this period.
गर तू कभी रोये, तो तुझे हंसाने वाली बात हूँ मैं, तू डर मत, हमेशा तेरे साथ हूँ मैं ।
अपनी यारी के कुछ प्यारे से जज़्बात हूँ मैं, तू डर मत, हमेशा तेरे साथ हूँ मैं ।
अर्सों में हुई अपनी एक मुलाक़ात हूँ मैं, तू डर मत, हमेशा तेरे साथ हूँ मैं ।
सच कहूं तो मुझे पहले कभी यकीन ही नही था, की लड़कियों से की हुई दोस्ती भी कभी चल सकती है । मगर तूने, मेरे हर पैमाने को गलत ठहरा दिया, मुझे ये दिखा कर कि एक लड़की भी दोस्त हो सकती है, बहुत अच्छी दोस्त । जब पहली बार तुझे देखा था, तब कभी सोचा भी नही था, की ये लड़की मेरी दोस्त बनेगी । और आज देखो, तू मेरी सबसे प्यारी दोस्त है । तुझे मैं बहुत ज्यादा तंग करता हूँ, पर तू... हमेशा मुस्कुराती हुई मेरी हर बात सह लेती है । आखिर ये ही तो सच्ची दोस्ती है ।
ये दोस्ती ताउम्र ऐसे ही चलती रहे इसकी दुआ करता हूँ ।
