Death: An Adoration

By |March 11th, 2017|

Lie down in peace, as the world you’ve lost,
Lie down in peace, as there aren’t any costs.
Lie down, submerge yourself within the moist earth,
Lie down now! You have fought enough for yourself since birth.
Lie down in peace dear, death isn’t that bad,
It’s calm, it’s dark, it’s silent but not sad.
The troubles you had, the restlessness, […]

Ye jo halka halka suroor hai

saaqii kii har nigaah pe bal khaa ke pii gayaa
lehroN se kheltaa huaa lehraa ke pii gayaa

Befuddled, by every glance of the cup bearer, I drank
Playing with the waves, the waves of ecstasy, I drank.

ai rahmat-e-tamaam merii har Khataa muaaf
maiN intihaa-e-shauq meN ghabraa ke pii gayaa

O Supreme Commander, pardon me for I […]

सपनों का सफ़र …

By |August 28th, 2016|

अक्सर ..आँखे मूँद कर सपने बुनते है हम

आँखें  खुलते  एक-एक  कर  चुनते  है  हम
कुछ  बटोर  लिया, कुछ  फ़िजूल  गए
सपनों  को  सपना  समझ  हम  भूल  गए…

हवाओं  की  गुनगुनाहट  कानों  को  छूतीं  गुजर  जा  रही  है
दुनिया  को  देखने  की  फुरसत  क्षितिज  तक  जा  कर  ठहर  जा  रही  है
हर  मौसम  हर  मंज़र  को  समेटने  में  ये  ज़िन्दगी […]

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

By |June 15th, 2016|

Life sustaining on earth is a result of thousands of years of evolution. The weak beings died and the strong lived and evolve. Survival of the fittest, as Charles Darwin stated is a cardinal law of nature. These thousands of years of evolution was in fact a race. And what kept them running was fear, […]

आज मैंने खिड़की से सच्चा हिंदुस्तान देखा

By |May 29th, 2016|

आज मैंने खिड़की से सच्चा हिंदुस्तान देखा
गिलहरी की फुर्ती देखी, मोर का गुमान देखा,
शांत सरोवर और मचलता तूफ़ान देखा,
गाँव देखे,खेत देखे, लहराता खलिहान देखा,
रामू देखा, डेविड देखा, गुरविंदर, रहमान देखा,
पसीने से तरबतर खेत में किसान देखा,
वहीं नंगे बदन दौड़ता, नन्हा अरमान देखा,
आज मैंने खिड़की से सच्चा हिंदुस्तान देखा.

झोपडी में रौनक देखी, सूना मकान देखा,

Breaking the Rules of Beauty

By |May 29th, 2016|

To all my independent ladies.

Are you beautiful?

Beauty is superficial. Beauty is lie. Beauty is expensive. It’s expensive because of what we’ve lost trying to seek it. Lives are spent […]
