क्यों नहीं होता

चलो  समझा  लिया  है  हमने अब   ये   दिल   नहीं   रोता लेकिन    तुम्हारा    इंतज़ार ख़त्म   क्यों    नहीं    होता उठा   कर   एक   कोने    में तुम्हारी   याद   रख   दी   है ख़लिश   फिर   भी   वहीँ   है दर्द  ये  कम  क्यों  नहीं  होता , अब  ऐसा  भी  नहीं, आदत तुम्हे   हो   बेनियाज़ी   की  सभी    से  […]

A Perky Bird

Pensively, on a wharf she stood Gazing blankly at the clear azure sky Deeply lost in her own world A sudden chirping sound pervading the serenity Brought her out of her wakeful slumber A tiny delicate bird at her feet she saw- With a perplexed questioning look It seemed to […]

The Most Important Ship In Life

Only in calm waters the ship of relationship sails smoothly But when into murky turbulent waters it drifts The entire scenario changes! A roller coaster ride it soon becomes Accompanied with volcanic eruptions   A massive earthquake Shakes the very existence of a placid life! Becoming dainty fragile glassware A single […]

गीत तो गा लूँ

गीत  तो  गा  लूँ  मगर  स्वर  सो  गये  हैं सो  गये   हैं  वादियों   में सो  गये  तरु-झुरमुटों  में पल्लवों  से  लिपट  सोये सांध्य अरुणिम  झुटपुटों  में खोल   दूँ   अनुभूति   अक्षर   खो  गये  हैं गीत  तो गा  लूँ  मगर  स्वर  सो  गये  हैं खो  गये   हैं  निर्झरों  में खिलखिलाती  उर्मियों में […]

Beads and Pearls

I thought beads were beads  And pearls were pearls But lately I have learnt That beads are pearls and pearls are beads No matter what I am told.  Lately I learnt a bitter lesson An online chain of stores Tempted me with a bright fascinating ad That I could not […]

The Earthly Lords!

A woman! A woman did you say? Yes, a woman that’s what I am And very proud of being one! It spares me from being an empty boastful man! I don’t deny there are many good ones too But the egoistic selfish ones out number them! Disrespecting women is their […]

कुछ हो गया है

मैने  जो   आसमां   पर  लिख  दिया   सूरज ज़माने    में    उजाला    हो   गया    है मैंने  तस्वीर  बना  दी  उफ़क़  पे बादल की सारा  आलम  निराला  हो  गया   है जो   शजर   झुक   गए   तूफ़ानों   में उन्हीं   का   बोलबाला   हो  गया  है दश्त-दर-दश्त   भटका  फिर  रहा  है दिल  ज्यों  मेरा  ग़ज़ाला  हो गया […]

The Tame,The Dumb And The Wild

Last eve the road was built; The ugliness covered…. It looked satiated with mortar Its prettiness rewarded With a brushing broom That leavened its uneven surface. Dusk set in to curb its glory Night, to cover and bake its chastity  Sunrise set the clock back. The tame, the dumb and […]

ये अफ़साना मेरा

फूल  सी  नाज़ुक  हूँ  मैं, पत्थर  सा  है  सीना  मेरा तुमने  देखा  ही  नहीं  काँटों  के  संग   जीना  मेरा हर  तलातुम, हर  भंवर  को  मात  दी  हमने  सदा पर   किनारों   ने    ही   डुबोया   है  सफ़ीना   मेरा उनकी  भी  मजबूरियाँ थीं, आँखें  नम थीं  देख  कर मेरा   वो  अंदाज़ , वो   […]

Reckless Development

In the midst of natural surroundings, Tearing through its divine grandeur Stand the modern structures like giants- Waiting to attack and destroy God’s very own creation! Are we foolishly trying to challenge and compete With God, the Almighty? That’s more than a Herculean task! Most of Man’s concrete jungles Wreak […]
