A Song for Readers

Note: Say it aloud. In fact, sing it. Then go back to reading.   Why do we read? We read, because, once upon a time, When we were small, and the world looked tall. Yes, once upon a time… when solo-ride was a crime. Once upon a time, at that precise time, a story wasContinue reading “A Song for Readers”

मेरा क्या है?

तंग रास्तों में भटकते हुए, अकस्मात् एक ख़याल आया। मंज़िल तो कभी देखी न थी, रास्ता भी अब खो न जाए कहीं। ये फुटपाथ गरीबों का, और ये सड़क अमीरों की, मेरा क्या है? कुछ भी तो नहीं… मेरे हिस्से में आये हुए, दुःख भी हैं और दर्द भी। सोचा अपनों से परे, क्या पता,Continue reading “मेरा क्या है?”

मैं एक पौधा हूँ

मैं एक पौधा हूँ… मैं वृक्ष नहीं हूँ, प्रज्ञ हूँ, लगभग अदृश्य भी, किन्तु विशालकाय यक्ष नहीं हूँ. मैं तो सूक्ष्म हूँ, निर्बल हूँ, चंचल हूँ. हवा के तेज़ झोंको से, कंपकपाता हर पल हूँ. कितने प्राणी, कितनी लालसा, मैं तो सबसे डरता हूँ. भान है यथार्थ का, तभी तो निवेदन करता हूँ. न मैंContinue reading “मैं एक पौधा हूँ”

What is love?

What is love? Is it in mother’s hug, when the child cries… Or in the child’s cries, if the mother dies?   What is love? Is it when a father holds the thumb, of his only child… Or when the child stumbles, when father is not, standing by his side?   What is love? Is itContinue reading “What is love?”

And the time stops there.

  From the dark grey sky, The rains fall, On the land that is dry. I stand alone on the lonely sphere, Think about nothing. And the time stops there.   When the deep blue ocean roars, In its vastness, My dream soars. I get strength from its flare, That waves possess. And the timeContinue reading “And the time stops there.”

The Two of Us

I was born somewhere, You were from other place. One day we discovered each other, And we found our solace. You were different, Different from who I was. When our eyes engaged, There was a brief pause. Two of us met, and Discovered a new world. In the dictionary of our language, Love was theContinue reading “The Two of Us”

If it wasn’t a valentine…

If it wasn’t a valentine, And just another day of our lives, Wouldn’t you still be mine…     If you were a star in the sky, Shining bright, Star next to you, would be I…   If we hadn’t met ever, Like the day and night, Everything else i could sever…   If youContinue reading “If it wasn’t a valentine…”

Little Moments of Happiness

That little moment of happinessWhen i partially wake up ten minutes before my alarm clockand relish the tender feeling of comfort, beforesomeone actually wakes me up with a stroke. Fleeing the bed is not as simple as it seems,I look at the calendar with one eye closed,while the other gleams.“Sunday it is”- quietly i realize, andContinue reading “Little Moments of Happiness”

Love at First Sight…

As She walked by my side Unintended change was there,  in my stride… Gazed in to her wide open eyes, Was amused but appeared a fool i did realize… She smiled at me, i am not sure Why? I managed to smile, my face was sweaty my throat was dry… She came closer and  wavedContinue reading “Love at First Sight…”
