For Majnu

Dear Imraan,

“Kisi ko kaho ki tumhe uske baare mein pata hai and before you know it, saare secrets bahar nikal aate hai.” I can’t tell you the amount of time this tactic has worked. All the gossip just flows out of the other person’s mouth.

You are the one who mocks everyone. Someone who might be in pain but still manages to make everyone. Cool, stylish dude, with a huge smile and an amazing sense of humour, you truly are the package, aren’t you? The biggest achievement for anyone is to truly discover themselves, and that’s exactly what you did!

You inspire me. Behind your entertaining pranks and comical arguments, you had an eagerness to meet your father. The confrontation was quite intense, but you got through it. It changed you a little; made you a little more serious, a little more aware. But that’s alright, everyone has to grow up eventually.

Thank you for introducing me to Bagwati and reminding me that it’s alright to throw your friend’s phone out of the car if they are not paying attention to you. You are a true artist; your poems are something I always think about. You make me want to truly live life. So, I’d like to end this letter with something I’ll always live by,

Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise Aazad rehna sikho Tum ek dariya ke jaise Lehron mein behna sikho Har ek lamhe se tum milo Khole apni bhaayein Har ek pal ek naya samha Dekhen yeh nigahaein Jo apni aankhon mein Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho Toh zinda ho tum Dilon mein tum apni Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho Toh zinda ho tum”

From, A hopeful Laila
