Black is Beautiful!! – By Prachi Singh

Written this poem about my love for butterflies and how it brought a transformation in me.

You’re adopted the kid shouted,
Existence of humanity, i really doubted
Your sister is so fair and you are so dark
The world never failed to make this remark

Spending all pocket money made me feel like a jerk
Bcoz Beauty masks, fairness creams and powders didn’t really work
I didn’t realise when i started developing inferiorities
Back then, beauty was my only priority

Then happened this life altering episode
Which became an important milestone
In biology class we were taught about butterfly’s life cycle
Never knew it was going to change my life’s title

Transformation of an ugly catterpillar
To a gorgeous butterfly
This metamorphisis
became my favourite past time

The wings of beauty was all i wanted
However, the ugly dark skin always haunted
One fine day i took an oath
To unveil the mystery of butterfly’s beauty and growth

I enquired my gardener for a possible host plant
For which i bothered my all uncles and aunts
And finally bought a lemon tree
Which luckily had eggs three

Placed them in a bottle with a tight lid
And Raised them like my own kid
Every night read them bed time stories
Starting From 7 dwarfs to finding dory

4 days later out came the catterpillar
This was my life’s most amazing thriller
Leaves and leaves they ate a lot
Wanted a perfect summer and weather so hot

Food and sleep was their hobby
Their names were Sunny, Abhay and Bobby
From brown to black and finally green
The transformation process was just too serene

And then one fine day they locked them selves
In their own world in their own shelves
My brother told me its called cocoon
He had seen this in one of the cartoons

All i did was to pray
As i watched them silently lay
Now i was eager to see the end
Bcoz that was suppose to mend
All the worries all the struggles
Everything that became a hurdle

Out came the butterfly
Nd with that i was unable to stop my cry
Rushed to call my neighbours
Acted as if i have gone through labor

I claimed to be their mother
Nd didn’t let it be touched by others
Her beauty was just undisputable
But one boy called her black and beautiful

And that just changed me forever
The fight to look fair and better
The beauty that i was running behind
Was the beauty of the dumb and the blind

Black was no more the color of shame
It too became the color of fame!!
It too became the color of fame!!

जोड़े जो धागे गांठ बने

जोड़े जो धागे गांठ बने

कच्चे धागों से बांधे जो
रिश्ते बहुत ही नाज़ुक थे
गांठ मार कर हाथ छिले
धागों में सलवट पटी पड़ीं
गिरहें हैं कि खुलती ही नहीं
चटक रहीं रह रह कर
क्या सूत की फितरत है ऐसी

फिर बांधी डोर जो रेशम की
मखमली गुदगुदी सुरमई सी
फिसल फिसल जाए जब तब
कभी इस लिए कभी उस लिए
क्या ऐसी डोर भी होती है
चटके न जो घड़ी घड़ी
तुनक जरा सी टूटे वो फिर खड़ी पड़ी

गांठों का क्या पड़ जाएंगी
उम्रों की हों या नातों की
गिरह समझ बांध ले अब
यादों की हों या रिश्तों की

खेतों में हरियाली आए, जीवन को हम मूल बनाएं

खेतों में हरियाली आए, जीवन को हम मूल बनाएं

कब होगी बारिश जो बता दे, ऐसा हम इक टूल बनाएं
खेतों में हरियाली आए, जीवन को हम मूल बनाएं
धुंआ उगलती कारों को, ऊपर चढ़ती दीवारों को
हम रोक सकें तो रोक लें, इन धरा की दरारों को
हो सके तो पेड़ लगाएं, आसपास हम फूल उगाएं
खेतों में हरियाली आए, जीवन को हम मूल बनाएं

काहे ये पहाड़ गिर रहे, देखो नदियाँ सूख रही हैं
सदियों से जो प्यास बुझाए, काहे हमसे रूठ रही हैं
बढ़ते तापमान को रोके, ऐसा कोई रूल बनाएं
हो सके तो पेड़ लगाएं, आसपास हम फूल उगाएं
खेतों में हरियाली आए, जीवन को हम मूल बनाएं

मिशन ग्रीन हो जीवन में, ऐसा हम कानून बनाएं
ग्रीन ड्रीम का डोज़ चखें सब, ऐसा कोई स्पून बनाएं
हो सके तो पेड़ लगाएं, आसपास हम फूल उगाएं
खेतों में हरियाली आए, जीवन को हम मूल बनाएं
