  1. I loved the lines whre you said

    Would you leave one single permanent footprint encased in stone?
    Or would you rather walk down the beach with me,
    leaving behind footprints that fade away the minute we move
    but my hand in yours saying that you never need remember to look back again?


    This is often an tussle in a relationship where the two people have differing levels of intensity with which they remember the old times. This was captured nicely in the ‘Hum Tum’ song:

    Jaane Kaun Kaun Se Din Woh TumkoYaad Dilaayein
    Pyaar Ko Chahe Bhool Bhi Jaayein
    Taareeqein Na Bhoolayein
    First March Ko Nazar Milaayee
    Chaar April Ko Main Milne Aayee
    Ikees May Ko Tumne Chuwa Tha
    Che June Mujhe Kuch Hua Tha

    I, obviously agree with the guy speaking those lines, and until now, I would hem and haw rather guiltily when reminded of something I had forgotten long ago.

    Now I have a great counterargument.

    Thanks 🙂

    1. @Navin: 🙂 Thank you very much. Unfortunately man in question is no longer part of life and what’s more, never deserved to be in it, either. Still, people may come and go but poetry remains, hai na?
