Kaam….Aaaram! (Work….Rest!) :)

26 Feb


Hum khoob karte the!
Kya hey? Ye poocha karte the!

Din ho ya raat…
Kaam ki thi baat!
Tha bus chai ka saath…
Na dost na ghar, jaise anaarth!

Hum liya karte the!
Ka khwaab dekh bhi naa sakte the!

Badal gaya zamaana…
Recession naya bahaana!
Taala laga hua khazaana…
Bandh hua jashan manaana!

Karne ki aadath nahin!
Karte rehna lagta hey sahi!

Nahi hoon pareshan about my bhatakta mann…
But the worry is about the badhta tann!
Bench pe tashreef actually pains… 😉
But kya kare, boss says profitability constraints! 😛

Main kar nahi sakta!
Kiye bina main reh nahi sakta! 😀

English Translation:

We used to do in lots!
Whats that? We used to ask!

Whether day or night…
Talks were about work!
Tea was our only companion…
No friends nor family, just like orphans!

We used to take!
We couldn’t even dream about it!

The situation has changed…
Recession is the latest excuse!
All treasures are locked…
All treats have stopped!

We are not used to it!
Doing it seems to be the right thing!

I’m not bothered about my wandering mind…
But the worry is about putting on weight!
Sitting on bench, it actually pains… 😉
But what to do, boss says ‘profitablity constraints’! :mrgreen:

I cannot do!
Without which I cannot live! 😀
