    Once a loquacious
    guy, I've now transformed into
    a complete loner.

    I shudder at the
    very thought of being present
    at a gathering.

    My transformation
    into a misanthrope has
    been slow and steady.

    Now , even small crowds
    are good enough to scare the
    daylights out of me.

    My confidence is
    at its nadir and it's not
    likely to improve.

    I heard some people
    whisper, "He needs to see a
    good psychiatrist".

    I thought it would help
    me and fixed an appointment
    with a counsellor.

    But even there, I
    saw a queue, and that quickly
    frightened me away.

    These days, I remain
    confined to my cocoon which
    is my comfort zone.

    But even after
    I breathe my last, these crowds may
    not stop haunting me.

    Can I get a trained
    robot which will carry out
    my funeral rites?

    भाती थी मुझको भीड़ कभी, लेकिन अब बदला है मंज़र
    अब तनहाई प्यारी लगती है महफ़िल से लगता है डर
    लेकिन ये तब्दीली तो मुझमें रातोंरात नहीं आई
    शायद इंसानों की दुनिया ही मुझको रास नहीं आई
