#ek Jindadi

Ae jindadi tu dass mainu…
Kithe tu,
Aur… kitne tere maslein.

Na kaha; toh faasle badh gaye,
Aur bole toh faisle bann gaye.

Na ruke; toh haath chooth gaye,
Aur juke toh dil judd gaye.

Na sunna; toh ankhaan bhar aayie,
Aur samjha toh kaleje vichh thand paayi.

Na himmat; toh mann di joli khali,
Aur sher-da-jigra toh mutthi ekk bhaari.

Ab toh thoda dass…
Ae Jindadi,
Kithe tu…
….Tere vich koun…
Main… ya meri parchaayie!

#Dreams

Close your eyes.
Dream…

Follow your dreams,
Chase them.
Coz…
Dreams hold the power,
To transform realities.
Shape truths,
And build legacies.

Believe in your dreams,
Embrace them.
Coz…
Dreams share tales,
Of sweet sweat.
Hot pursuit,
And healing faith.

Promise to dream,
Much beyond.
Coz…
Beyond is the open sky,
Of limitless canvas.
With air to breathe,
And space to fly.

Dream to shine,
And be the twilight.
Coz…
Each sparkle is divine,
In a star so unborn.
Let the Hero rise,
Inside you, from within.
Unfold stories; until untold!

Hounsla!

Khayaalon se karoon ek sawaal,
Meelon tak itni doori kyon?
Manzil koi dastak de,
Ankahe saare raaz kahe.

Woh meri zidd,
Mera jazba,
Aur junoon.
Jeene ka andaaz woh,
Mar mitne ka khawab bhi woh.

Aisa hi hai woh…
Jigar ke paar,
Jeet ka vaar.
Josh ki lalkaar,
Mann ki pukaar.

Bas aur koi nahi,
Akela woh, akela main.
Hum ladte rahe,
Phir bhi chalte rahe.

Haste haste…
Kabhi woh meri dagar,
Aur main uske nagar.
Aisa mera woh humsafar…
~ Mera Hounsla!

Ishq!

Nazar chura ke tum na dekho,
Jhuki aankhon se tum na muskurao,

Dekho kuch aise…
Khawbon ki haqueeqat dekho.
Khula neela pyaar dekho.

Parindon ki udaan dekho.
Hawa ka jhokha dekho.

Mitti ki khushboo dekho.
Aangan ki pukaar dekho.

Khayaalon ka ehsaas dekho.
Izhaar mein ikraar dekho.

Kabhi toh kehdo,
Yeh ishq hai…

Haan, mujhe ishq hai.
Zubaan-e-ishq ibadaat dekho!

She!

Alone on a long stretch,
Walking in wet sands…
I aim to see far,
And hold it more near.

Thin air sways me,
A swoosh brushes me…
I walk a mile ahead,
In search of only; she.

Soft waves soak me,
With a gush of pristine…
I quest to find her,
Amidst the waves of blue.

The scent of her,
Brings me close…
To make me ponder,
Who I chose?

One to the heart,
One to the soul…
On its way,
Clung to the shore.

Who knocks inside,
And what does it say…
Can she be my answer,
My heart knows it all.

Bhay! – Fear

Maangle tu aaj,
Toofani lambi raat.
Buja de saare deepak,
Umeedon ke dwaar.
Jal gayi rasi,
Par bal na tuta.
Chalta rahe kafila,
Bhay naam hai tera.

Shikanj meri itni,
Koshish karta rahoon.
Joh jung mein hai tu,
Toh vaar main bhi karoon.
Tu bhay hai,
Toh main hosla hoon.
Tu le panaah soch mein,
Toh main dil mein basu.

Tu kamzor bana faislon ko,
Main buland awaaz dil ki.
Dagmagaye kabhi tere paiyr,
Main pathar ki ek lakir.
Sunn yaara apne mann ki,
Sirf andar dil ki.
Bhaga yeh bhay ko,
Mita uske ghar ko.

Jala mashaal roshni ki,
Ujaala kar aashiyaane ko.
Darr ka na koi naam,
Bhala uska kya hai kaam.
Rukna nahi,
Aur zukna nahi.
Maut se aage tu nikal,
Zindagi; silsilon ka…
Keval ek naam hai.

Who Knocked?

Life moved.
I grew,
And I grew tall.

Neglecting routine reserves,
Thinking they were all mine.

Things that were once free,
Soon came priced.

The inhale of fresh oxygen,
Now, layered with a nosy mask.

The solitude of lush greens,
Patrolled by guarded cops.

The zest of barefoot run,
Lie inside an online yoga room.

The silence of holy shrine,
Deliver home-made prayers.

The crisp of morning newsprint,
Surface a lifeless touchscreen.

The joy of hand-picked dailies,
Shrink-wrap in a market app.

The sizzle of hot popcorn in cinema,
Couch on indoor live streaming.

The thrill of real santoor,
Play on headphones in playlists.

The ghazal of Jagjit,
Ripples nostalgia in whisky.

The fine dining impression,
Sit at home-made dinner tables.

The roar of 3.00 am friends,
Mute with Zoom call Hi’s…

The promise of our well-being,
Commit insurance in covid covers.

The retire of one’s sweat,
Trend live stories on instagram.

The peace of mindful sleep,
Hover with what’s for tomorrow.

The warmth of love,
Is touched with woody silence.

What happened… Who knocked?

It only said,
I give… I retaliate…

Absences with absence.
Affection with affection.
Friendship with friendship.
Loyalty with loyalty.
No more one sided feelings.
Feelings must be mutual.
Respect my being.
And I respect you.

I am Nature.

Isolation – ain’t isolated.

I  S  O  L  A  T  I  O  N
Separated. Deserted. Alone. Single.

Not really.

But,
Connected. Included. Not one. A tribe.

Isolation ain’t isolated,
But a happy quarantine.
A cheerful me time,
On a happy selfie rhyme.

Glued to my lappy,
The worlds’ at my desk.
From SARS to CORONA’s,
All connected in my net.

Friends to my fingers,
Hellos at the wats-app.
Cutting real-time peeps.
Instagram says just be.

Claps on my creative,
Social Samosas cheer me loud.
Let’s now debate,
The Quint voices me out.

Alone; a petty status,
Tinder keeps me hooked.
Date, mate and hate,
Creates many stories.

Live is short,
Lasts for a day.
Meet me buddy,
I am today’s, ‘Its Live’.

So much to seek,
From likes to love.
Country’s world-wide,
To n fro land… on my palm.

Isolation ain’t isolated,
It’s the new me.
A diy hack,
My solo space shack.

ISOLATION
I am connected. I am included. I am the one. I am the tribe.

Talaash – A Find!

Itni dur main chala,
Dhundla ho gaya,
Apne aks ko kho diya,
Aisa main ulajhta raha.

Kho diya kuch,
Kise…
Aur kaise…
Talaash hai.
Apna koi bhool gaya.

Aasmaan ki udaan,
Taaro ki saugaat,
Timtimati roshni,
Savaari meri jeet ki.
Le gaya apno ko,
Meethe rishton ko,
Mita diye saare faaslein.
Phir bhi thodi…Talaash hai.

Kaamyabi ki takht par,
Khada main akela,
Shikhar par sabse aage,
Mere peeche duniyawale.
Taaliyon ka shor,
Khushiyon ki badhayie,
Shabaashi kandho par,
Phir bhi thodi…Talaash hai.

Seedi joh upar le jaaye,
Woh badhti chali jaaye,
Naye mukam dikhayein,
Neeche ka na koi dhaam.
Main band aankhon ka aisa abhaaga.
Itna lamba dekh na paaya.
Phir bhi thodi…Talaash hai.

Mehnat se yahan pahucha,
Kashton ko maine saha,
Tum kya jaano iss daur ko,
Har lamha maine jiya.
Yahan aana mera khwaab tha,
Ab aa toh gaya,
Phir bhi thodi…Talaash hai.

Kamyaabi kamaayi,
Daulat aur shaurat bhi,
Jeeta Jag,
Jeeta apna naam.
Phir bhi thodi…Talaash hai.

Haan…
Talaash hai…
Mujhe meri…
Koun tha pehle,
Aaj koun hoon main,
Aaine ne bhi diya dhoka,
Le gaya mujhse meri pehchaan.

Bhagta chala,
Ruke na ruka,
Manzil ka junoon savaar,
Tezi ka main hua shikaar.

Talaash hai…
Mujhe meri.
Mann ke sukoon ki.
Apno ke saath ki.
Ghar ki roti ki.
Mere humsafar ki.

Aaj awaaz do mujhe,
Kaho ab laut chalein,
Talaash hai mujhe…
Tumhari…
Aur hamari!

 

Khoj – A search!

Khoj hai mujhe…
Meri saans ki,
Band dhadkan ki,
Ruke dil ki.

Khoj hai mujhe…
Thodi tamanna ki,
Halki khwaaish ki,
Beete waqt ki.

Khoj hai mujhe…
Ek pukar ki,
Najhuk hasee ki,
Buland awaaz ki.

Khoj hai mujhe…
Udte parindon ki,
Neele aasmaan ki,
Nayi pehchaan ki.

Khoj hai mujhe…
Manzil ki,
Maksat ki,
Dilerr sahaas ki.

Khoj hai mujhe…
Apni.
Milna hai mujhe…
Khudse.
Judna hai mujhe…
Mann se.
Khoj hai mujhe…
Anant Moksh ki.
