Poem: Fitoor

The word ‘fitoor’ is of Arabic origin (also pronounced futuur), means disorder or unsoundness (typically of mind, colloquially as ‘dimaagh ka fitoor’). A phrase in Hindi that could come close to this meaning is ‘us par bhoot savaar ho gaya hai’as if to say, the spirits have taken control of one’s mind!

The word/phrase is not used as an insult, but to comment on a person’s illogical craze for something. Through this poem, I present the passion which is termed as craziness by the society. It’s the passion to take the road less travelled, to not know what you want in life and be okay with that. To know what you don’t want in life but not be okay with that. This one is for the guys who do not settle but strive. Fitoor - Hindi Poem
