नशा ही नशा है

शीला चित्रवंशि कि कलम से कहीं यह शीर्षक “नशा ही नशा है “देख कर आप सब चौंक तो नहीं गए? क्योंकि मैं ये सब नशे में नहीं लिख रही हूँ। वरन सही मायने मैं आप सभी का ध्यान इस बदलते हुए समाज के अन्दर जो निरंतर नयी नयी कुरीतियाँ फैलती जा रही हैं, उनकी ओर आकर्षित करना चाह रही हूँ। आज समाज में दिन-ब-दिन जो बदलाव आते जा रहे हैं उससे आप सभी अनभिज्ञ नहीं। यानि की सामाजिक

Thank You God!

Thank you God for my life and all the love, For making me happy when I see a rose or a dove. For letting me enjoy everything I have when I live, Grateful for my wants which are lesser than what you give. For eyes to see my loved ones and for hands to do my own work, To read, to cook, to paint to laugh…to do all the things I care about. To enjoy
