GUSTAKHI MAAF...



Sonnets have been written for people in love. Love ballads get splashed all over our senses, day in and day out. Where does the inspiration come from?. Love is an all consuming emotion. Only those who feel the pangs of this 4 letter word may understand the meaning behind the mushy songs and sweet nothings. He blogs in English, but when it comes to inspired poetry, he falls back on the time-tested cupid language, Hindi. Who is it that inspired the outburst of emotion-laden words? A secret shared, between him and God ;)



Gustakhi maaf.


Dil ka khitaab de baithey.



Gustakhi maaf .



Chain bhari neend kho baithey.


Jaagey rahey saari ratiya,


Nainan me tum hi muskuraaye.


Kaleje se nikalti reh gayi

Ek bebus si uff, ek thandi si haay.

Pakad ke haath mera


Ungliyo se khelti rehi tum.


Ghabrati to nahi par

Thoda sharmati reh gayi tum.


Nazrey mil nahi paayi


Kyunki jhuki jhuki thi tumhari palkey.


In palkon par aas bithayein


Kya mere they wo sapney?

Duniya ki awaaz mein mazboot magar


Bacchey se hum tumhaari aagosh mein.


Ye aagosh bhi lekin pal bhar ka raha


Tum door chal padey, hokar befikar.



Aasani se keh diya


Jaao iss zindagi se uss zindagi tak,


Mujhe bhool jaao, mujhe yaad mat aao


Yehi badbadati rehi kismet.



Ye khamoshi
Jeeney na degi

Ghol do isey ishaaro mein


Kya sochti ho, bolo zara.


Goonjney do dhadkan in hawaao mein



Ab yaadon ke kamrey me bechain kyon hoon


Is bhari bheed me bhi tanhaa kyon hoon …


Tanha, tanha


Lamha, tanha



Gustakhi maaf

AN ODE TO INDIAN IDOL


Of late, he doesn't get enough time to write about experiences & journeys, because life is whizzing by at such dizzying speed that by the time his fingers are set to record one experience, he is jet setting to another one. Would that be unfortunate, but he discovers that even in the snatches of leisurely time , his thoughts turn to penning down something. And out of those snatches comes poetry, something untried, untested. He is not the best with verses, but he tries, because he believes in himself, and it is this belief that has brought him to the seventh heaven he drifts around in today. This is his ode to his journey in Indian Idol, short and sweet.

Tu hi shuruwaat thaa
Tu hi anth hai

Tuney di khushiya
Tumne hi rulaya hai

Ashq kabhi na lagey they itne meethey


Hanstey chehro ki parchaiyaan,
ab bhi un kamro mein hain


Wo mithaas, wo kadwahat
Wo haathon pe pasina

Wo maathey pe shikan


Jhilmilatey geeton pe thiraktey kadmon ki aahat
Beetey lamhon ki dastak par pyasi yaadon ki aahat


Kaise bhulaaoon tumhe, rooh ka hissa ho tum
Zindagi ko zindagi banaya who bezubaan kissa ho tum


Ab waqt ka dariya beh chala hai, ye rokey na rukega

Yaadon ka ye paimaana bharey to bhi na chalkegaa
