Prodigy

The smell of spicy food was making Sam hungry. After a long wait at the restaurant, the waiter came with the food. He had a mask over his face. A bowl of soup was placed on the table. Sam looked for her parents, who were sitting with her, a minute ago. They were nowhere around. The soup was bubbling. Out of the bubbles, long serpents came out and wound around her neck. She was gasping for breath. Then everything became blurry. Read more…

Jaane Kya Baat

जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है

Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai

जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है

Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai

सारी सारी रात मुझे इसने जगाया
सारी सारी रात मुझे इसने जगाया
जैसे कोई सपना जैसे कोई साया
कोई नहीं लगता है कोई मेरे साथ है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती …

Saari Saari Raat Mujhe Isne Jagaya
Saari Saari Raat Mujhe Isne Jagaya
Jaise Koi Sapna Jaise Koi Saaya
Koi Nahin Lagta Hai Koi Mere Saath Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai…

धक-धक कभी से जिया डोल रहा है…….
धक-धक कभी से जिया डोल रहा है
घूँघट अभी से मेरा खोल रहा है
दूर अभी तो पिया की मुलाक़ात है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती …

Dhakdhak Kabhi Se Jiya Dol Raha Hai……
Dhakdhak Kabhi Se Jiya Dol Raha Hai
Ghungat Abhise Mera Khol Raha Hai
Door Abhi To Piya Ki Mulaqat Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai

जब जब देखूँ मैं ये चाँद सितारे
ऐसा लगता है मुझे लाज के मारे
जैसे कोई डोलि कोई बारात है
नींद नहीं आती …

Jab Jab Dekhoon Maein Yeh Chand Sitare
Aaisa Lagta Hai Mujhe Laaj Ke Mare
Jaise Koi Doli Koi Baraat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai…

जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है

Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai

(A corner to be myself)

Please for once do not judge —
Have you never felt confused?
Tortured with an inner grudge,
Shattered, beaten and bruised?

Yes, I am that imperfect fool!
Finding my fragile lil world
Grabbing for any broken tool
My dreamboat sails, unfurled

The fight is against the storm
To live with a head held high,
To question the accepted norm,
Even though I know, I will die.

I am battered but breathing
Taking in a fresh gulp of life
Ready to celebrate my failing
Into the scary depths, I dive.

 

 

Random thoughts again

Anger compels action, spontaneous

Fear anchors in mesh, diaphanous

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

 

By nature, we value what is rarely found

The mind believes any logic that is sound

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

 

Super forces  always work to create or kill

Viewpoint, key evaluator of good and evil

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

 

Entertain, torture or humor before we go

Choice is ours, no one else needs to know

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

Freebies

It’s one of those days. Everything is beautiful outside. Your are suprised, that your external appearance belies the turmoil of emotions in you. Your heart is crying and bleeding and yet there is no sign of it in the smile that your put on your face.

You look at the road ahead of you. You suddenly notice it extending far ahead. It winds in directions you would not have known unless you saw the car going on it. It seems so far away, and yet it is there.  It made you aware of it’s presence, subtly and surely.  And when it did, it hit you like a ton of bricks.

It is not the obvious that brings tears to your eyes, it is the swift subtle play of thoughts that come from nowhere and catches you off-guard. You know that someone understands. That someone communicates with you in silent words.

You wonder it you ever earned it ? Probably not. It’s just one of those freebies.

The best things in life are free!!

Tu Jo Mila

I would like to share this soulful song, sung by KK in the movie Bajrani Bhaijaan
Ashiyaana Tera Saath Mere Hai Na
Dhoondte Teri Gali, Mujhko Ghar Mila
Aab-O-Daana Tera, Haath Mere Hai Na
Dhoondte Tera Khuda, Mujhko Rab Mila
Isn’t your home with me by your side
Looking through your alley, I have found my home
I have taken responsibility of your needs and subsistence
And in searching for your God, I have found mine.
Tu Jo Mila..Lo Ho Gaya Main Qaabil
Tu Jo Mila..To Ho Gaya Sab Haasil Haan..
Mushkil sahi, asaan hui manzil
Kyunki Tu Dhadkan..Main Dil…
Now that I found you, I find myself capable.
Now that I found you, I have achieved everything.
Even though it’s difficult, we are making progress towards our destination,
Because you are the throbbing of my own heart.

Rooth jaana tera, Maan jaana mera
Dhoondhte teri hansi, Mill gayi khushi
Raah hoon main teri, Rooh hai tu meri
Dhoondhte tere nishaan, Mill gayi khudi
With you getting angry, with me conceding
In trying to make you smile, I have found my happiness.
I am the path you tread, while you are my soul,
In trying to find your identity, I have discovered myself!

Tu Jo Mila..Lo Ho Gaya Main Qaabil
Tu Jo Mila..To Ho Gaya Sab Haasil Haan..
Mushkil sahi, asaan hui manzil
Kyunki Tu Dhadkan..Main Dil…
Now that I found you, I find myself capable.
Now that I found you, I have achieved everything.
Even though it’s difficult, we are making progress towards our destination,
Because you are the throbbing of my own heart.

Tu Jo Mila..Lo Ho Gaya Main Qaabil
Tu Jo Mila..To Ho Gaya Sab Haasil..Haan
Tu Jo Mila..Aasaan Hui Mushkil….
Kyunki Tu Dhadkan..Main Dil…
Now that I found you, I find myself capable.
Now that I found you, I have achieved everything.
Now that I found you, all difficuties are becoming easy,
Because you are the throbbing of my own heart.
