Mannat Sa..

Tu ghabraye kyu, jab kal tune na dekha.

Tu ladkhdaye kyu, jab raasta yahi  hai tera.

Tu khud mein khud ko roke kyu, agar hai tujhe jeena.

Tu utsukta ko baandhe kyu, agar gyaan hai tujhe peena.

Tu mann ki ankhein khole, jab ho sab dhuaa dhuaa.

Tu dil ke raaste khole, jab ho tu dara dara.

Tu chup hai kyu, agar sunn rha apni cheekh ko.

Tu bhram nhi, aaj maan le apne astitva ko.

Kyu mitt rha tera vishwas hai, jab kho ke paana hi teri muraad hai.

Kyu soche ki tu aaj hai khali sa, tu jaanta nhi ye tere jazbaat hai.

Tu samet le ya jee le, yhin tera chayan hai.

Tu maang le ya de le, yhin tera karm hai.

Ho ja tu malang sa, agar ibaadat ho karni.

Ho ja tu shunya sa, jo apni pehchaan ho karni.

Tu ho ja mandir, masjid aur dua.

Tu ho masoom aur jee le mirza.

Taare se janma prakash hai tu, tu ho ja aaj dhyaan zara.

Marhum sa narm hai tu, kisi ke dard par aaj thehar ja..

Tu ho ja prem sa, parbat ko chhu aur srishti sa ban ja.

Tu armaan ban aur kisi ki mannat sa udta chla ja, udta chla ja..

 

 

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.

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….

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…

 

 

 

 

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.

The Expression of Openness and Void. (#Not a poetry)

How it feels to breath with openness

In mind, in heart, in soul..

Where the wonders and miracles meet me

And disasters and vulnerabilities are immense in cues

What shall I tell in words or how shall I express without them..

As an artist with the love of expression

Or as a writer by putting forward the best possible appropriate combinations of letters..

With openness comes choices, comes chances

With openness comes freedom,

But freedom always has its opportunity cost.

So does this cost be the breath I intake, or the breath I exhale..

What lies or what I hold after paying the cost by my breath

Is it the freedom again or emptiness as void inside, as void inside….?

Is it just the expression of openness and void or a question to self on my life or for my life ..??

 

 

 

 

The Magical Cave

“With a bunch of friends I joined one of the martial art camps, which were organised on a monthly basis, under the guidance of the renowned Shaolin warier monk. This time it was held on one of the islands of Maldives. The mythological story of the island goes with the rumours of a magical cave where the Goddess resides.

Fortunately, our guide informed that it is not just a rumour, instead the cave is truly magical and legendary in its own ways. We accepted our present opportunity and decided to visit that cave. The cave was considered to be a holy place, and is opened with the help of a Mantra. Entering into it, we found the blessed stone through which the Goddess arrives, and takes away the spirit of that human who devotes its soul to the Goddess.

Hearing this story changed something in me. Something I was unaware of. But since we came back from the cave, I had an unusual feeling about myself. While preparing ourselves for getting started with the training part, I just wanted to flow in the moment and be with just my self. I closed my eyes, with motion i meditated and it took a form of dance which I lived as of those moments.

After I opened my eyes, I saw one of my friends in tears. She had the realisation of her deepest truth, from which she was escaping so far. And this was a hint for me, this was time to be the eye witness of that power which is bigger than all. I mentioned to my another friend to inform my family members and my partner about how much I love them and left.

I walked back into that magical cave & this time it opened without any Mantra. As if, I was supposed to be there in that moment.

I entered the cave, walked through and found the stone of Goddess. While closing my eyes I wished to be taken away, I prayed with all my devotion to leave my body and just be the spirit in my truest form. The stone of Goddess shined bright and brighter, I was witnessing the power I have never met before. And with steps I walked in to that light….I walked into that light…. “

NAZARIYA..

Kabhi kadamo se udti hui dhuul ko dekha hai, 

aisa lagta hai jaise bhoomi apni hi dhun mein magn ho jhoom uthi ho..

waise hi jaise hawaa ke chalte hi pedo ki pattiyan naachte hue nayi soch darsha rhi ho..

jaise baadal garajte hue aakaash apni vaani se prakriti ko raag suna rha ho..

jaise pahad ke peeche se surya ne jhankte hue hariyali ghaas pr baethi gaay ko narmi se chhu liya ho..

jaise nal ki uss aakhri boond se gilheri chauk kar ped pr chadh idhar udhar dekh rhi ho..

jaise khoye hue bacche ko dodte dodte apna ghar door se dikh gya ho..

jaise jalte hue paanv pr behti hui sangam meethe palon ka ehsaas dila rhi ho..

aise hi ye zindagi hai, 

jo dheere dheere na jane kitni kahaaniyon ko simetti hui ek nayi kahaani likh rhi ho..

“PHIR ek koshish”

KABHI PARDE KO PHIR GIRA KAR DEKHO, 

ISS KHAMOSHI KO AAWAZ DE KAR DEKHO, 

KI AB YE SANNATTA DUM TODNE LAGA HAI.. 

 


JO KABHI EK THE UNHE PHIR EK BANA KAR DEKHO, 

PURANE BANDHAN KO NAYI SOCH SE NIBHA KAR DEKHO, 

KI AB AKELEPAN KAID KARNE LAGNE LAGA HAI..

 


DHALTE SURAJ KO PHIR VISHWAS SE TOH DEKHO, 

RAAT KI ROSHNI KO MEHSUS KAR KE DEKHO, 

KI AB MANN KA SHOR CHUBHNE LAGA HAI..

 


NAARAAZGI KE SHABDON KO PHIR SULJHA KAR DEKHO,

JIS SAATH KA WAADA KIA THA USE BARKARAR KAR KE DEKHO,

KI TOOTE RISHTEY KA MOL AB KHUD KO KHUD SE DOOR KARNE LAGA HAI..
 

BE

Be the ray of hope you were seeking for,

Be the faith you were searching for,

Be the light you were looking for,

Be the flower you were nurturing for,

Be the love you were looking for,

Be the feeling you were desiring for,

Be the hope you were holding on,

Be the essence you were caring for…
