Virtual World – ज़िन्दां हूँ अभी

Be updated, not addicted

Be sceptical, Not everything you see is real.

Social media addiction is one of the major reasons which hinders the truth behind every story. I am not saying that everything on social media is fake or irrelevant but affecting your real life for a so called virtual life is definitely not a good idea.

This poem is about How we are ignoring the basic truth by just being a slave of virtual world.

Being trendy, updated and modern does not means not using your ability to understand, question and reason.

हाँ, हमने ज़मीं पे रहना छोड़ दिया

जमीनी हकिकत को समझना छोड़ दिया

औरों के लिए थोड़े दर्द को सहना छोड़ दिया

हाँ, हमने जमीन पे रहना छोड़ दिया।।

अब तो ऊंची- ऊंची इमारतें हैं बस

और उनसे भी ऊंची ख्वाहिशें हैं अब

पैरों को जमीं पे टिका कर आसमानों में उड़ना छोड़ दिया

हाँ, हमने जमीन पे रहना छोड़ दिया।।

हवा में सारे रिश्ते निभाते हैं हम

Internet पे बस बातें बनाते हैं हम

Post dedication से celebrations मनाते हैं हम

दो पल साथ बैठकर अपनों का दर्द बाटनां छोड़ दिया

हाँ, हमने जमीन पे रहना छोड़ दिया।।

वक़्त के साथ बदलने में कुछ बुरा नहीं

लक्ष्य का पीछा करने में कुछ बुरा नहीं

पर मशीनों के बीच रह कर,

इंसानियत की बातें करना छोड़ दिया

हाँ, हमने जमीन पे रहना छोड़ दिया

ज़िंदा हूँ अभी ये खुद से कहना छोड़ दिया

हाँ, हमने ज़मीं पे रहना छोड़ दिया।।

  1. You must check out the tag #causechatter in Twitter.. It’s about debunking the rumors in social media..

    I think your Hindi verse is something close to that idea.. But am not sure and it’s my interpretation from the English intro..

  3. Well said Aadarsh bhaiya….
    Internet ne rishto ko bhula diya..
    Apno k beech fasla bda diya…
    Ab to ek sath rahne par bhi msg
    krte hai kaise ho…
    Dekh kr bolna aur muskurana
    bhi chhod diya…
    Kyuki saari hasi to status pd k nikal
    Jati hai….Apno ki baato m interest
    lena chhod diya….
    .
    I was trying to make rhyme but it doesn’t match i think
    But ye internet and social media logo ko aage badne se rok rha hai
    They have stopped think about their future and others who depend on them
    Nothing seems them besides internet
    This is a very serious disease….and they even don’t 9 when it became their addiction
    or disease

  4. Excellent…
    Virtual world is destroying our real Beauty..
    We became obsessed with materialistic things and show off…
    Aaj insano se pyar nhi internet speed se pyar hai..
    Happiness hum like nd comments me dhundhate hai..
    Dusro ki internet profiles se khud Ko compare kar k happy nd sad feel karte hai..
    We had beome captive of social networking..
    But truth is….
    happiness to humare andar hoti hai…. inner peace come from gratitude not from show off….
