Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has shared a beautiful and inspirational couplet about optimism, penned by Shanti Swaroop Mishra, while under lockdown.


Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has been sharing inspiring and optimistic thoughts to lift up the spirits of his fans and followers amid the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic in India. The veteran actor who has been under self-quarantine at his residence in Mumbai took to his social media account earlier on Thursday and shared a few couplets by poet Shanti Swaroop Mishra through a video message. He termed the verses relevant and inspiring in the present global scenario.

Here's the poem:

चलो हंसने की कोई, हम वजह ढूंढते हैं ! (Let's look for some reason to laugh)
न हो जिधर कोई ग़म, वो जगह ढूंढते हैं ! (Let's look for the place where there's no sorrow)

बहुत उड़ लिए ऊंचे आसमानों में यारों, (We've been floating in the skies for long)
चलो ज़मीं पे ही कहीं, हम सतह ढूंढते हैं ! (Let's look for some shelter on the ground)

छूटा संग कितनों का ज़िंदगी की जंग में, (Lost so many in the fight for life)
चलो उनके दिलों की, हम गिरह ढूंढते हैं ! (Let's look for kinks of their hearts)

बहुत वक़्त गुज़रा भटकते हुए अंधेरों में, (We've been wandering in the dark for long)
चलो अंधेरी रात की, हम सुबह ढूंढते हैं ! (Let's look for the light in this dark night)
