Hello everyone!

Welcome aboard the #BlogchatterProjects. I have barely been pulled into this wagon at the last moment (ya, much like the DDLJ climax) and here I am with my stuff on the menu. People have come up with such awesome projects on social and informative topics but mine is a bit old-school.

I have compiled a poetic bouquet of all the verses and poems that have been hovering in 15cover817EfrontRound1my mind (and spilling onto my blog from time to time) and have managed to get it published. “मन मन्थन: एक काव्य संग्रह” It is not just my brainchild; ‘coz you can feel my heart and soul too in this one. So it is much more than that. I am here to take my book to the eyes and ears it deserves. It may not be a huge success yet but for me it is nothing short of that. To be able to come up with it and getting it published is already a success story for me.

फ़ासले: #RightToBeWrong

Why is it so important to be always right?

मेरे  सही  होने  से,

तेरा  सही  होना  ही  सही,

ये  धरती  अम्बर   सब  तेरे,

मेरा  मन   का  कोना  ही  सही,

सही  ग़लत  के  झगड़े  में,

जाने  कितनी  इमारतें  ढही,

ऐसे  सही  होने  से  ,

तो  ग़लत  होना  ही  सही,

सही  होने  की  चाह  में,

कह  जाते  हैं  बातें  अनकही,

उठतीं  हैं  ऐसी  लहरें,

के  शर्म  लिहाज  सब  बही,

क्यूँ  सही  होना  ही  ज़रूरी  है,

क्यूँ  हिंसा  ही  जीत  रही,

ग़लत  होकर  भी  मैने  देख  लिया,

मानो  तो  कोई  फ़र्क  नहीं ,

मिटा  दे  सही  ग़लत  के  जो  फ़ासले,

मिल  जाए  ख़ुदा  से  खुद  वही,

क्या  रखा  है  इन  झगड़ों  में,

खुशहाली  ही  में  धीमहि ,

खुशहाली  ही  में धीमहि….||

दीपावली :#poem

It is that time of the year again and this little one from my archive still holds true.

दीपावली के शुभ अवसर पर…


होकर  विजयी  प्रभु  राम  हैं  लौटे,

के  दीवाली  का  त्यौहार  यहाँ, 

आतिशबाज़ी  पर   है  रोक  लगी ,

पर  धुएँ  के   हैं  गुबार  यहाँ, 

खील-खिलौने  तो  याद  नहीं,

होड़  में  है  चरखी-अनार  यहाँ,

फ़ेसबुक  दुआओं  से  सुसज्जित  है,

पर  परिजनों  का  है  तिरस्कार  यहाँ,

हर  द्वारे  दीपक  जगमग  हैं,

पर  सड़कों  पर  मरता  कुम्हार  यहाँ,

लक्ष्मी  जी  का  पूजन  है,

पर  दहेज  प्रथा  की  मार  यहाँ, 

के  देसी  घी  के  लड्डू  हैं,

पर  खाकर  इन्हें  बीमार  यहाँ,

पकवानों  से  महकती  फ़िज़ा तो है ,

पर  भूखों  की   हैं  कतार  यहाँ,

ख़ूब  सजे  हैं  चौक-चौबारे,

हर  जेब  में  लेकिन  है उधार  यहाँ, 

दो  नावों  पर  सवार  हैं  सब,

और  जाने  गुम  पतवार  कहाँ,

के  हम  हैं, तुम  हो  और  दीपावली,

हर  गम  में  खुशियों  की  भरमार यहाँ,

मुबारक  हो  सबको  त्योहार  दीवाली,

के  इसके  जैसा  कोई  त्योहार  कहाँ ?

खुशियों  की  ऐसी  फुहार  कहाँ?

खुशियों  की  ऐसी  फुहार  कहाँ?…

Wish you all a very happy and vibrant Deepawali 🙂

भोर: #NeverTooLate

Indian Bloggers

         When I first saw the prompt, I was instantly reminded of the great achievers  who started off late or tasted success or met with their destiny very late in their lives like Colonel Sanders of KFC, Boman Irani from Bollywood, Jack Ma of Alibaba Group etc. But I also thought about myself…realizing my dream to write and become a published author after going through 10 long years of training to be a pediatrician. It is really never too late to dream and work towards making them a reality.

Here’s a poem for everyone out there who is waiting to start afresh, take a new step or revisit an old one. A poem for each one of us:

भोर

दुनियादारी  ने  सपने,  कितने  यूँही  डुबो  दिये ,
कुछ  जला  दिये,  कुछ  धो  दिये ,
पर  इन  सपनों  में,  बाकी  अभी  थोड़ी  जान  है ,
भूले  नहीं  गिर  कर  उठना ,
इन  पंखों  में  बची  उड़ान  है ,
ये  ख्वाब  हैं  वो;जो ग़म  में  भी  मुस्कुराते  हैं ,
हैं  वो  नहीं;  जो मामूली ठेस पर ही रो दिये ,

क्यूँ  जकड़ें  इन  ख़्वाबों  को ,
घड़ी  के  इन  दो  काँटों  में,
के  पिंजरे  से  दूर  उड़  जाने  में,
भूले  भी देर  नहीं  होती,

के  सोते  ख़्वाब  जगाने  में ,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती ,
बचपन  में  लौट  जाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,

उन  लम्हों  को  छू  कर  आने में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,
फिर  बन्धन  में  बँध  जाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,

रोती  आँखों  को  हँसाने में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,
रुक  कर  इक  पल  मुस्कुराने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,

के  जिनके  हों  मज़बूत  इरादे ,
पक्के  हों  मंजे  और  धागे,
छूती  है  पतंग हर आसमाँ  उनकी,
के  गहरी  उनकी  रातों  में  भी,
कभी  अँधेर  नहीं  होती,

हर  ख्वाब  को  फिर  जी  जाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,
खुद  से  किए  वादे  निभाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,

गीली  आँखों  को  सुखाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,
कुछ  बिसरी  बातों  को  जताने  में ,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,

गिर  कर  फिर  उठ  जाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,
बिखरकर  फिर  बन  जाने  में,
कभी  देर  नहीं  होती,

रुकना  न  तुम  राह-ए-दिल  में  कभी,
चाहे  ढेर  मिलें  मोती ,
के  सच्ची  राह  दिख  जाने  में,
यारों  देर  नहीं  होती,

कभी  भी  देर  नहीं  होती…||
