Mausam Shayari

Weather is one of the stock themes of poetry. But weather is more than the condition of a season. Poetry represents these aspects with reference to human beings and their destiny. As such, weather is both a friend and an enemy depending on what condition we are in. Some examples of this complex condition may be seen in these verses.

vo dhoke aaj tak maiñ khā rahā huuñ

jo un masum aankhon ne diye the

wo dhoke aaj tak main kha raha hun

Firaq Gorakhpuri

main ek sham chura lun agar bura na lage
