The Mahabharata of Signatures, Documents and Pointing Fingers

By The Editor: Siddharth Sehgal It’s an irony that Bhisma faces in Mahabharata, he didn’t approve the actions of Duryodhana nor has any desire to fight for him but his half heartedness was noting in front of the oath that bounded him to the Hastinapur’s throne. He had to take […]

कुछ यूँ हुआ

ऑंखें  ना सरे आम कहीं भीगने लगें वो दर्द का  बादल मेरे भीतर सिमट गया चुप थी ज़ुबान, बोल उठीं दिल की धड़कने उसका ख़याल जब मेरे दिल से लिपट गया कुछ फ़र्क़ नहीं अब, कि वो आये या ना आये रुत बीत गयी, प्यार का मौसम बदल गया खुशबू  […]

मजबूरी

चेहरे पे मेरे लिख गए कितनी  कहानियाँ क़दमों  के  निशां वक़्त ने  छोड़े  हैं  तरह बादल भी बरसता है तो भीतर मेरे दिल पर आँखों से एक बूँद भी छलकाऊँ किस तरह पलकों में  फिर समेट लिया हमने  समंदर कुछ लोग बिन आँसू के भी रोते हैं इस तरह मुरझा […]
