Raftaar

For this year left me tired but not torn.. for this year made me work hard and now it is nearly gone..

Raftaar!!

Aaj bade dino baad,
Sofe pe baitha hu,
Khidki se baahar dekh raha hu,
Panchi ghar ki aur rawana hai,
Hare patte peele padne lage hai,
Shaayad patjhad ki tayaari hai!

Soch mein dooba hu,
Kaha gaya yeh saal?
Abhi toh sardi se chudaya tha peecha,
Aur lo patte bhi jhadne ko aaye hai,
Raat jaldi hone lagi hai,
Phir fir waale coat ki baari hai!!

Koshish me hi tha,
Zara yaad karu 2019 mein kya kiya,
Bhagam bhag ke siwa ,
Kuch khaas mehsoos nahi hota,
Maano aaya aandhi sa,
Aur jaata hua toofan sa bhaari hai!!

Koi kavita bhi na likhi,
Koi sher bhi na padha
Haan kisi khoj me laga tha,
Khoj poor hui toh ek makaan le liya,
Ab usko ghar banaane mein laga hu,
Samjho yeh ‘ghar’ ramzaan ki ek iftaari hai!!

Sukoon hai bhi aur nahi bhi,
Ajeeb si bhaag daud hai,
Chaahe jitna bhi ho bas aur chaahiye,
Kyu aisi hodd hai?
Aajkal ghabhraane laga hu,
Raftaar acchi hai , par shaayad bimaari hai!!

Kher!! Kuch na kuch chalta raha,
Mein uska aur woh mera hissa banta raha,
Patjhad se sardi tak ,
Shayad kuch aur rang nikhre,
Shayad agla saal is tarah na beetein,
Hone ko kuch bhi sakta hai,
Mann mein sirf acche ki tayaari hai!!! -dj

Rishte

It has been ages that I wrote anything.. guess I have been busy evolving mine with my heartbeat .

Relationships is something we are bound by even before we are born and even after we die .

Here is my thought on this imperative bit of life .

Dhaago se lambe,
Uljhan se nikle,
Has de toh lamha,
Palko se geelen,
Kahi sambhle kahi toote,
Hai yeh rishte!!

Jeevan ka sach hai,
Jeevan bhar sang hai,
Jo bhule toh khandhar,
Jo savre toh rang hai,
Kahi bihkre, kahi simte,
Hai yeh rishte!!

Barkha se baadal ke
Aankhon se kaajal ke,
Sapno se nindiya ke,
Mamta ke aanchal se,
Kahi bandhte, kahi khinchte
Hai yeh rishte!!

Chuppi toh kaayam hai,
Uljhe toh zaya hai,
Kahi Dhadkan se chalte hai,
Kahi saanso se ukhadte hai,
Kahi tikte,kahi badalte,
Hai yeh rishte!!

Kal aankhri panna
Is kitaab ka reh gaya,
Na usne likha ,
Na maine padha,
Baat dil mein rahi,
Phir bhi dil keh gaya
Kahi adhoore bhi poore hai,
Kahi poore adhoore hai,
Har taraf sath sath chalte
Hai yeh rishte!!-Dj

Saadgi

Everytime I look back only one thing that brings on a whole hearted smile on my face is to think how simple our lives were. There was no social media to menace our existing situations, people were simple with realistic expectations, comparisons never were the highlight of everyday living and all that mattered was live your day with ease..A bit of pressure to make the best out of lives only because you were meant to live better and not to show others that you are living better.

Here is my ode to the simply simple existence.

Asmaan wahi neela pehne ,
Roz zameen ko takta hua,
Suraj apni angdaayi mein ,
Kabhi chipta , kabhi tapta hua,

Patte aaj bhi hare hai,
Kitni aajeeb baat hai?
Chaand badal mein ghira hai,
Kaise?Aaj bhi wahi raat hai..

Kyu nahi badalte rang roop yeh?
Kyu wahi ruke hai Jeevan ki dhoop se?
Kyu nahi inko mera badalna khatakta?
Kyu suraj na mujhse ladta?
Kyu chaand na mujhse atakta?

Kya mein fizool hi waqt zaya kar raha?
Ki rondh ke lahu jeb apni bhar raha.
Is kadar mein eet gaade mein fasa,
Ki apni kabr main aap hi mein dhasa.

Kyu uljhane meri badti gayi?
Suraj wahi tika raha,
Saans meri ukhadti gayi.
Tana bana bun liya bebaat ka,
Kaha chup gayi meri hasi?
Kyu na raha kuch bebaak sa?

Saadgi ne haath kab choda ,
Mujhe maaloom hi na pada,
Uljhano ke saath tha,
Par raha akela hi khada…

Woh roz yu hi nikalte ,
Mein bhi yu hi hoon nikalta,
Woh thakte nahi shaam aane par,
Mein har shaam ke saath hu zara dhalta..

Zindagi sawaal jiska jawaab ek khoj hai,
Saadgi se jiya toh zindagi ,nahi toh mehaz bhoj hai

To the NEVER of our lives..

When you fall in love the first time, when your passion speaks to you more than ever, when your desires reach a high, when you want what you want… there aint a never!!!!

Never we sleep with the dreams ,
that will come true..
Never we dream that we want more,
if we really do..
Never that eye blinks when it sees,
What it loves,
Never that breathe stops till it gets,
What it craves..
Never those hands shake when they hold,
What they mould,
Never that mind muddles when ..
The truth unfolds,
Never that heart sinks till it has,
All the love that grows..
Never that soul departs till it merges ‘as one’
With the best it knows..DJ

अख़बार।।

This poetry is a dedication to today’s world..the media..and our lives woven in the so called news that travel from around the world thinking about the sad state of all of us yet never inspires us to work towards them!!

आज कोई काम नहीं तो सोचा ,

अख़बार की सुर्ख़ियो से दिल बेहलाए,

कुछ तो अलग छपा होगा,

इस ख़याल से पन्ने फैलाए ।

पहली ख़बर राजनैतिक दव्दं थी,

विषय गहन, भाषा स्वच्छन्द थी,

जैसे रस्सी कोई दोनों सिरों से खींचे था,

अपना ज़ोर चलाने दाँतो में भींचे था,

सियासी मारामारी थी,

पक्षों की कोशिश जारी थी,

फिर वही दुखी दशा देख देश की,

नई ख़बर की ओर बढ़े ,

शायद कोई अच्छी ख़बर पढ़े।।

पन्ना दूजा, बात वही की वही रही,

कही जात पात का भेदभाव,

तो कही जीवन का कोई मोल नही,

वही सोच है, वही समाज,

ऊँच नीच में फँसे कड़वे बोल वही,

सुबह की चाय आधी थी,

अख़बार से उम्मीद बाकि थी,

नई ख़बर की ओर बढ़े ,

शायद कोई अच्छी ख़बर पढ़े।।

ये तस्वीर में कैसा कोहरा है?

कही कई घर घिरे है पानी में,

कही पानी बिन जीवन अधूरा है,

कालिक है धुएँ की?,

या छाया बादल गहरा है।

ये तस्वीर में कैसा कोहरा है?

क्या यह अन्त काल का पहरा है?

हम सोच में है पड़े ,

बाकि ताज़ा अब क्या पढ़े?

फिर आख़िरी चुस्की लगाकर ,

अख़बार को रखकर परे,

मन में विचार हमने करे,

दिल के बहलाने को हम रोज़

अख़बार में है झाँकते ,

जो रोज़ ख़ुदी में झाँक ले,

शायद सुर्ख़ियाँ कम छपे ।। dj

Mein khidki se jhaaku toh….

This is an ode to the times when I was a young child. My dad would wake me up for the school and I would lazily open my window and look out first and then sit in the porch listening to the chirping birds and not wanting to get started with the routine. Sluggish I was but the fresh air when it touched my face is like a dream now..

I wonder and worry will my sonnie experience the same beauty? Will he ever wake up in the arms of nature and breathe the beauty? Will the smog cover his dreamy eyes? Will he see the sun rising from the mountains? Will he listen to the birds singing? Will he……?

I wonder..

.. Subah kabhi jab aankh khule,

Aur usi subah ne odha kala badal ho ,

Main khidki se jhaaku toh,

Wahi hawa zara si pagal ho.

Kahi abhi bhi chaandni faili ho,

Kahi suraj leta athkheli ho,

Main khidki se jhaaku toh,

Dharti jaise ek paheli ho.

Kuch Panchi daana chun ne jaate ho,

Kuch udd suraj ko jagate ho,

Main khidki se jhaaku toh,

Kuch mere aangan mein chehchahate ho.

Kahi araam se bachpan sota ho,

Kahi umr sair pe kadam badhaati ho,

Main khidki se jhaaku toh,

Maa chaadar nanhe ko udaati ho.

Kahi oss ki boonde bikhri ho,

Kahi aas ki kaliyaa khilti ho,

Main khidki se jhaaku toh,

Suraj ki kirano se paani ki tarange milti ho.

Main jo yeh chaahu, jo yeh maangu,

Yeh kalpana hai ya swapn kahi,

Main khidki se roz hi jhakta hu,

Par dikhta kyu na swarg yahi,

Main aankh masalta hu,

Aankhon ki dhoondh hataane ko,

Par hataash ho jata hu,

Dhue mein lipti meri kalpana paane ko!!

Mein haar na maan ne paaunga!!

This one is dedicated to our bravehearts who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack. Not even once they think before taking away lives. Does it cost nothing to anyone?? Does it mean nothing to anyone??

Mein tujhme mil jaau, Aisi meri kismat ho,

Mein tujhse mil jaau, jab tujhe meri zaroorat ho,

Woh gola bankar barse, toh mein aag ban lad paau,

Woh aag bankar barse, toh mein paani ban use bhujau.

Woh vaar kare jo tujhpe, toh seena mera aage ho,

Woh hathiyaar uthe jo tujhpe, toh faili meri baahein ho.

Woh phir se kissa dohraaye, toh mein phir se sheesh utha paau,

Woh phir se jaal bichaye, toh mein tiranga odh bich jaau..

Woh laanghe seema ko apni, toh mitti ka swaad use chakaau,

Woh dehshat ki aag lagaaye, toh mein raakh use kar jau..

Tujhse milna , tujhme milna kewal meri chaah nahi,

Jo tere liye mit jau e!! Maa, toh jeene ki parwaah nahi

Tu hi mera garv hai, tu hi mera swarg hai,

Teri rakhsha karna hi mere jeevan ka lakshya hai,

Woh daitya bana jo baitha hai,chaahe jitne waar kare,

Jeevan ke sanhaar se, jeevan ka sanhaar kare..

Sau baar giroonga tujh pe,

Sau baar phir se janam lekar

Sau baar mein waapas aaunga,

Mein haar na maan ne paaunga,

E!! Maa Mein haar na maan ne paaunga!
