With a grain of salt..

With the whites and blacks, let the greys origin.

With the hollows and flat, let the plates merge in.

With the whisper and noise, let the silence say.

With the snow and fog, let the clouds rain.

With the depths and highs, let the plains await.

With the impulse and values, let the wise dominate.

With the myths and evidence, let the imagination abide.

With the intention and action, let the integrity play.

With the truth and false, let the perception embrace.

With the love and hate, let the peace create.

With a grain of salt, let the lives stay.

 

Roobaru

Baadalon se ghir kar chhup rhe the hum,
Na jaane kiss se muh mod rhe the hum,
Jo nazar aaya hi nhi usse khoj rhe the hum, 
Achanak humne mehsus kia ki ankhein muund kr baethe the hum,
Dekha toh paaya baadal baeth kar ho gye the thum,
Khud ko khud ke saamne roobaru kar rhe the hum, roobaru kar rhe the hum…

Ardh Satya

Jharne mein behte hue shor boond boond ka,

Aur Behti hui nadi mein achanak se aana kisi mod ka.

Halki si baarish mein garajna zor se baadal ka,

Aur andheri raat mein bujhna aakhri mombatti ka.

Bin bulayi barsaat se tootna ghar kisi ka,

Aur bina wajah bataye ruthna zindagi ka.

Aakhri chaai ki chuski mein milna mishri ka,

Aur ghanto intzaar ke baad chhutna gaadi ka.

Khwahishon se bhare bheed mein akele reh jaane ka,

Aur akele mein bhi apno ka sukoon paa jaane ka.

Aadhi raat mein kisi dhamaake se uthne ka,

Aur nayi subah mein nayi shuruwat ke hone ka.

Chehkti muskaan mein badhte vishwas ka,        

Bachhe ki kilkari mein khilane wale ki naadani ka.

Ehsaas hain sab kisi mein kuch zada ya kuch kam,         

Hastakshep soch hai sab kisi ka armaan kisi ka mat.

Kamal ke kichad mein khilne jaisa kisi ka jhooth kisi ka sach,                          

Aur grahan mein kisi ke milne ya kisi ki doori jaisa hai ye saara ardh satya ardh satya.

Sachh Kya Hai..

Sachh kya hai jhooth kya
Dil kya hai dimaag kya
Zameen kya ye aasamaan kya
Gareeb kya hai fakir kya

Maasuum kya hai tez kya
Dhokha kya hai fareb kya
moh kya ye prem kya
Jism kya hai aatma kya

Kya hai ye duniya or ye log kya
Kya hai jeena or jeene ka maksad kya
Kya hai ye marna or maarna kya                                        Kya hai ye khel or zindagi kya

Sach kya hai or ye jhooth kya

 

Zindagi…

Zindagi ho jaise udte baadalon si
Saath ho jaise chaav thandi si
Ghar ho jaise hariyali ped ki
Rishtey ho jaise ye prithvi hum sab ki

Gyaan ho jaise sooraj ki kiran pehli
Dhyaan ho jaise samarpit sadhana ki
Aayu ho jaise sugandh kaamyabi ki
Shrey ho jaise bhakti prem ki

Zindagi ho jaise udte badalon si….

FOLDS- the old and new..

With the cold icy nights I stood

With the least ray of shine I stood

With the storm and strikes I stood

And with the drought and slides I stood

 

But I broke with your question and doubt

I broke with your sharp words that mount

I broke when you struck me with the shock

Of no longer being one of my part

 

Then I perceived it all as one big disaster

Like the naturals’ I put them in same cluster

Now this repeated two three four  times

And I became an expert to dig the mine

 

With each bad experience I turned a bit blue

Yet I make better decisions may end up bad few

Now I look upto myself discovering fresh view

Every time I broke I stood up as new.

KITAAB

Ek dukaan, dukaan kitaab ki.

Kitaabein kayi, kuch kahaaniyon ki.

Kahaaniyan ankhahee, kisi ke khwaab ki.

Ek khwaab, yaad kisi ki.

Kisi ki chaahat, ladaai kisi ki.

Aazaadi kisi ki, maut kisi ki.

Shanti kisi ki, sachayi kisi ki.

Ek dukaan, dukaan kitaab ki.

Kshetr ek, Lekhak kayi.

Syaahee ek, pal the kayi.

Lafz unke, aawaaz thi meri.

Anubhav unka, pariksha thi meri.

Chaai saath mein, kuch biscuit bhi.

Raatein kayi, par saath nhi.

Vichaar kayi, dhaarna kayi.

Ek kitaab, kitaab uss dukaan ki…

 

 

 

 

The SUN

I have seen the sun, the sun melting amidst the clouds, the clouds waving with the wind.

I have witnessed the wind washing the sea, the sea playing with the coast.

I have been on the coast nurturing memories, the memories bringing smile.

I have felt the smile crossing the tears, the tears rolling down on the face.

I have observed faces humming the songs, the songs quietly telling their hidden stories.

I have heard the stories of beauty and pain, the pain igniting the light within.

I have speculated the light growing brighter than the night, the night welcoming the sun rise.

I have become the sun, the sun melting amidst the clouds…

CHALTE-CHALTE

Chalte chalte main neeche dekhna bhool jata hun,
ki aasmaan mein khawaahish ko dhudta reh jaata hun,
gir jata hun bhool se par uth kar sambhal bhi jaata hun.

Vhin zindagi muskurati hai,
gehre zakhmo pr malhum lagati hai,
aur kehti hai waqt se tum rukna nahi yehi toh sache khawab ko paane ki hai tarkeeb.

Isi waqt or zindagi ne mujhe hai sikhaya,
zaruri nhi jo socha whi hai paaya,
kabhi zada toh kabhi kam hai sabke hisse mein aaya.

Uss khwab ki or main fir se badhta hun,
sambhalta kam aur girta zada hun,
par aaj zindagi ki khwaahish ko naye pehlu se dekhta hun.

Hosla khud mein aur vishwas raaste pr rakhta hun,
sapne pure hon ya na hon magar sachhe dekhta hun,
ye aasmaan mera ho na ho lekin iss zameen ko, chalte chalte gir ke, har baar chumta hun.

CHAAHAT

 

Jab jaan-naa chaha,

tab haalaat nhi the.

 

Jab maan-na chaaha,

tab jazbaat nhi the.

 

Jab chaaha ki lafzon mein krein kuch banyaa

tab, sach kehti hun, shabd hi nhi the.

 

Jab dhuud-na chaaha,

tab jawaab kayi the.

 

Jab apnana chaaha,

tab sawaal kayi thi.

 

Jab chaaha ki aankhein mund kar sun lun dil ki baat

tab, sach kehti hun, dil mein koi ehsaas hi nhi the.

 

Jab samajhna chaaha,

tab pehlu kayi the.

 

Jab smajhaana chaaha,

tab tum hi nhi the.

 

Jab chaaha ki khud mein khud se hi mil lun

tab, sach kehti hun, Allah bhi yhin the aur Ishwar bhi yhin the….

 

Jab milin unse,

tab puchha maine,

 

jaana khn tha,

aur khn hain chal diye.

 

Jab suna unhone meri chaahat ko

tab vo bole, main sach kehta hun, aana tha yhin pe…..tumhe, aana tha yhin pe.
