We met in '70, which - looking back - was a freak chance in the Brownian Movement of lives unfolding... and we grew-up together... the trio, who thought/believed that one could change/understand the "reality" (with a "R") with our discussions, rantings, poems...
One of us is no more (died, consumed by/succombed by his addiction to life/intensity of the zeitgeist, when we were growing up... or, so I would like to believe!), one took up a government job, and well... here I am :)
but these verses, written by one of us (not me!) still hold true - at least for me... the essence is where we start from!
दोपहर-रात, ये सुबह-शाम
भी जीवन के हैं भाग किन्तु,
ऊषा की क्षणिक अरुणिमा में
ही सत्य निहित है जीवन का...
