Kuch Lamhe

Some nazms that I penned some time ago

KUCH LAMHE:
1) Taaron ki shaant timtimaahat
Aur andhere sannate ke beech
Uthti awaaz jo failaye madhoshi
Andhadhun samaa mein hai ye roshni ki nazuk aahat

2) Suryoday gagan ki rangeen chadar odhe
Raat ki thand mein garmahat ka aagman
Oas ab kho rahe apna astitva
Ruke nahin jeevan ka chalan, bas ab dikhai pade

3) Ped ke patton mein dhup ki luka-chippi
Kabhi kabhi vayu maharaj ki dakhal andazi
Thake musafir aur ped ka saath to suna sunaya hai
Par dhup aur vayu hi hain is rahi ke humrahi

4) Varsha mein paani ki boondein khelti ajab raas
Kabhi tez ya madhdham koi na keh pata
Josh mein aa gayee to sab Ram-bharose
Aas-paas na dekhti kuch… anjaam sarvanash

5) Phool jab pathjad ke hruday se khilte
Toh soonepan ko chod dete soona
Par gar hota na pathjad bahaar se pehle
Toh kya phool itni muskuraahat faila pate?

6) Saanjh ki lapet mein phir sab aane lage
Kuch jeev shuru, kuch thame, par jeevan toh abhi bhi chale
Bheeni mitti ki mahek ghulti raatrani ki sugandh se
Sab kuch abhi bhi sada-sa manmohit lage

7) Subah uthte hi palkon ke saamne chaye dhundhlapan
Sapnon ki duniya ke nishaan abhi bhi
Nidra aur jaagran ke beech ki ajab sthiti
Jab hosh dagmagaata, shantata ke dariya mein behekta man

8) Palkein jhapakte hi, oas ki boonden khaari,
Khud mein koi raaz samaaye,
Girte aur ho jaate hain ye toh nadaarad
Par de jaate hain ahsaas halke, jab ho jaati hain yaadein bhaari

9) Madhraatra… Kehte hain ki hai sannaata
Toh phir kya hai vo jantuon ki nishani
Woh tarraana, madhur awaazein
Aisa anokha shor kyon koi na sun paata?

10) Ant kabhi ho sakta hai samaapt?
Kya shuruaat bhi nahin anth ka aagman?
Chakravyuh mein ghoom, vipda mein phase
Gar yahi sochne baithe, toh kya manzil hogi praapt?

21ST BIRTHDAY

Birthday... a purposeless count of purposeless years in a purposeless life!
Thats the existential in me talking.

Birthday.... FUN, pampering, a reason to demand and celebrate
Thats the child in me talking.

Birthday.... why is it so special when you don't feel special? When nothing different happens?
Thats the cynic cum realist me.

But hey, why are so many people butting in, when it is MY birthday!!! Celebraaatttteee!

What did I do on my 21st birthday?
  • Woke up early... no concession here
  • Came to office ... again no concession
  • Work and work... same story... in fact I got a birthday gift of more work
  • Get people sing, cut cake in office. Not to mention order an extra cake to splatter on my face... no wait make it rub on my face. (Yeh it was fun... but well...)
  • Meet some friends for sandwich before leaving at 7.30 ( a last minute substitute for dessert)
  • Meet Mariette and Priya at Candies, Bandra (the new one). I so love that place. ( will try and write a review soon)
  • Click mad pictures and then have an attempt to click a decent picture taken by P which ended up seeming like a Photoshoot! (i kept ruining pictures by making silly faces)
  • talk talk talk
  • Return home when M starts cribbing about getting late.
There you curious cats, you have my schedule for that day. Now anyone wishes to ask what I did?
PS: Oh for those who are still clueless, bday was yst - 8th April.
