facebook पे अपना status लिख रहे हो
तो जिंदा हो तुम
 
रोज किसी एक नए deal पे बिक रहे हो 
तो जिंदा हो तुम
 
जाओ आज twitter पे एक celebrity को करो follow तो ज़रा
tension ना लो job की linkedin पे account खोलो तो ज़रा
किसी post किसी photo में तुम कभी tag तो हो
किसी मस्त बंदी के google circle में तुम भी add तो हो
 
youtube के किसी random video में दिख रहे हो
तो जिंदा हो तुम
 
facebook पे अपना status लिख रहे हो
तो जिंदा हो तुम

काश

Posted: July 27, 2011 in Poetry, Romance
काश के कभी यूँ होता
मामूली ही सही
बेपरवाह सा कभी
मेरी आँखों में भी जूनून होता
 
एक हसरत है जो तुझे छूने की
उस हसरत को थोडा सुकून होता
 
काश के कभी यूं होता
दो पल को ही सही
बेपर्दा सा कभी
बस मैं होता और तू होता
काश के कभी यूं होता

नूर

It’s been quite long since i wrote the gazal in Hindi, Ek premi ki daastan. So, I thought of writing one more, although it’s more in a song format. But, What the heck! And yes, a hindi song deserved a hindi font, aptly so.

मेरे जाम से छलकता तेरे प्यार का ये नूर है
मुझे तुमसे बेरुखी नहीं थोड़ी बेखुदी ज़रूर है

तुम जो करीब आये मेरे दिल की गिरह से
पलकों में बस गए हो आंसू की तरह से
ठुकरा के जा रहे हो; तुम यूँ मुस्कुरा रहे हो; मैं तरसा हूँ विरह से

मुझे गम का कुछ गिला नहीं तेरी ख़ुशी का सुरूर है

मेरे जाम से छलकता तेरे प्यार का ये नूर है
मुझे तुमसे बेरुखी नहीं थोड़ी बेखुदी ज़रूर है

आँखों ने इश्क ओढ़ लिया, दिल उस परी का गुलाम है
ठोकर मिली कदम कदम, मेरी बेखयाली का इनाम है
बर्बादी की किताबो में; बर्बादों के खिताबो में; मेरा ही जिक्र आम है

मेरी हस्ती गुमनाम सही, मेरा किस्सा मशहूर है

मेरे जाम से छलकता तेरे प्यार का ये नूर है
मुझे तुमसे बेरुखी नहीं थोड़ी बेखुदी ज़रूर है

26/11

This was one of those many unfinished 4 line posts which had been lying on my desktop for quite a while. One of my 2009’s resolutions was to complete them apiece. I am glad, at least I have made a start. Clearly as it suggests, it was started in wake of 26/11 as it is now infamously referred to. And, I could not think of a more apt title. Here it goes:

There is death all around me
smiling in my face
with a devilish grin it hovers around
all ready to embrace

I look as if I care for its antics
“Oh! shut up for god’s sake,
I got chores to be done with
and my job, here, is at stake.”

“And, gimme a li’l space, wil’ ya
I need to get goin’ fast and soon.
Killing me won’t do any good anyhow
I sure ain’t any famous tycoon”

“Go show yourself off at some posh locale
if you are so eager for a front page mention
‘Coz there is no worth exploding here
even if you kill us by a million.”

Astounded, it stares in my eye
as I show it the door
“Cya Mate, may be some other place”, said I,
too scared to be scared any more.

Ek premi ki daastan !

Let me put it plainly. This one took time aplenty, and I am hopeful I would improve. Afterall, I am new to writing in Hindi, although I started with “Jai Ho Babaji”, which I am unsure whether to post here or not, coz I am too afraid to be faced with Babaji’s rage.

Oh ! and by the way, it’s a hindi poem(Gosh ! I guess I leaked that out already), somewhat in a gazal format.

the seduction..
makhmali chehra reshmi julfein,
bebas nigaahein fisal hi jaati hai

dekhke unki kamuk adayein
aarozoo ruh ki machal hi jaati hai


the romance..
barso se sust padi thi jo sadak
unke ghar tak aajkal hi jaati hai

aur dekhke hum deewano ko sang
dhadkane sheher ki jal hi jaati hai

the realization..
soorat se dhokha kha baithe the
seerat aakhir badal hi jaati hai

jhuth ke parde lakh bhale ho,
sach ki kainchi chal hi jaati hai

the pain..
has dete hai mehfil mein hum,
par dil se aah nikal hi jaati hai

kuch pal maut to naseeb hai sabka
jaan hamari har pal hi jaati hai

the recovery..
chand kadam ladkhadati hain saanse
dheere dheere sambhal hi jaati hain

chot gehri ho jitni bhi chahe,
waqt ki lau se pighal hi jaati hai

After a huge hiatus, the reasons for which are unknown even to me, i am putting this down from the old box of mine. I wrote it on behalf of a friend, my best friend actually. Most people know him by name of God.

No one brought me on this earth.
No one would ever take me away.
Never did I take any birth.
Forever, albeit, I would stay.

Your every tear, my eyes let fall.
Your every smile adorns my lips.
My ears attend your every call.
Every arm, my arm grips.

My feet walk your every step.
My skin shades every soul.
Every life rests on my lap.
Every death rests in my soul.

No one stays from me, apart.
No one stays beyond my care.
I live within every heart.
Yet you seek me everywhere.

My strength fights your every strife.
My smell loads your every breath.
Within you, I live your life.
Within you, I die your death.

Spell My Love ♫

It’s been ages since I last posted. At least, it seems so to me. I am back with my favorite theme ‘Romance’. But this time, it’s special. It’s been jus’ 2 minutes , i keyed in the last words of my first ever love song, something i had been longing to do. And here goes the reprint of it, straight-lifted from my notepad file, in two quick keystrokes.

Oh! u cant spell my love..
Oh! u cant spell my love..

even if
u knew every word
obsolete or absurd
ever-spoken ever-heard

even if u tried hard enough
u jus’ cant spell my love

how completely u rule over my senses
u r compellin’ me to step beyond my fences
oh baby, i have lost control
since the day u stole
my heart out of my hearty defenses

oh princess !!
u cud rule over me
play with my destiny
u cud know me head to heel

but u cant spell my love..

even if u tried hard enough
u jus’ cant spell my love

i act a crazy kid, forever, lost in ur thought
lemme remind u gal, however,crazy, i m not
i am jus’ a bloke in love
in ur smokin’ love
thanks to all the smiles u have brought

oh girl !!
u cud charm me around
in all the ways u have found
u cud know me abound

but u cant spell my love..

even if
u knew every word
obsolete or absurd
ever-spoken ever-heard

even if u tried hard enough
u jus’ cant spell my love

Oh! u cant spell my love..
Oh! u cant spell my love..

P.S.: Someone with decent musical abilities, please help me complete this song. It sounds dull without the notes.
