Remembering Winters – Sardi K Dino Ki Khusgawar Yaadien..

Written by Social Mela

This a beautiful memoir from Aman Imam Ghazi, an engineer turned photographer and scribbler. He recollects his childhood memories about winter, and how things have changed now…


Aaj bhi January hai, unteesva din. Subah ke dus baj rahe hain, aur baahar kadi dhoop. Dhoop dekh kar aisa lagta hai, sardiyo ka fashion khatam ho raha hai. Ek zamaana tha jab January ko sardiyo ka mahina kaha jata tha, khoob jaada padta tha. Aur jab dhoop nikalti thi, log ghar ke aangano me baith kar apno ke qareeb hote the. Apne baap-dada ke bachpan ke dino ko kya kahe, maine khud who din dekha hai.

Aur ab, sab kuchh badal gaya. Sab kuchh chhota hota gaya, ladko ki sahansheelta, ladkiyo ke kapde, logo ki maansikta, apno ke dil, sab ka nazariya. Aur toh aur, sardiya bhi chhoti ho gayi. Bahut chhoti. Bahut kuchh badal raha hai, bahut kuchh badal gaya. Main bhi iss badlav ke bahav me na chahte hue bhi badal raha hu.

Aane wale zamane me, ye toh pata nahi ki log ye padhenge ki nahi, ki ek ‘Amaan’ hua karta tha, par ye zaroor padhenge ki sardiyo ke din hua karte the, jab log qareeb aate the, phoolo ke chatakte rang dhundh ke saath mil kar ek alag rang bikherte the, panchhiya khoob chahchahati thi aur kuchh log khayalo me khoye, aankhe band kar khud me hi muskuraa jate the…
