अनाम रिश्ता

आओ ! हम दोनों मित्र बन कर रहें मर्यादा और सम्भावना का चित्र बन कर रहें मैं तुम्हारे मन की मीता हूँ संस्कारों में जन्मी पली सीता हूँ त्रेता से कलियुग तक चलकर संदेहों की अग्नि में बारबार जलकर अब मुझे न लगाव है राम से न शिकायत है रावण […]

জন গণ মন (Jana Gana Mana)

জনগণমন-অধিনায়ক জয় হে ভারতভাগ্যবিধাতা! পঞ্জাব সিন্ধু গুজরাট মরাঠা দ্রাবিড় উৎকল বঙ্গ বিন্ধ্য হিমাচল যমুনা গঙ্গা উচ্ছলজলধিতরঙ্গ তব শুভ নামে জাগে, তব শুভ আশিষ মাগে, গাহে তব জয়গাথা। জনগণমঙ্গলদায়ক জয় হে ভারতভাগ্যবিধাতা! জয় হে, জয় হে, জয় হে, জয় জয় জয় জয় হে।। Translation  Thou art the ruler of the minds […]

दर्द के बोझ से कुछ दबी इस तरह

दर्द के बोझ से कुछ दबी इस तरह ज़िंदगी आज तक सर उठा  न सकी तप गयी मरुःथली हसरतों की बहुत प्यास बदली कोई भी बुझा न सकी आसमानों को बाँहों में भरने चली क़र्ज़ अपनी ज़मीं का चुका न सकी  कौन सी बाँसुरी छल रही है मुझे लक्ष्य की […]

Poetry

हम बेकार हो गए

हमने जो सियासत के रंग देखे, घर की कुर्सियां तोड़ दीं, हमने जो रवायतों के ढंग देखे, मोहब्बत करनी भी छोड़ दी, नाबराबरी से जो हम हुए रूबरू, हसरतों पे अपनी शर्मसार हो गए, बस इन दो शब्दों के लायक ही बचे हैं, वर्ना यूँ समझिये के हम बेकार हो […]

You Played a Role

Not my fault, I would say, so would he I did my best, and so did he, he said. But, the canyon widened between us everyday, every minute, hopeless, I watched, the edge dissolve into the hazy mist, sinister, cruel, and towards the perfect ending it creeps, ever so slowly, […]

Poetry

See Her

See her walk with her head held high Fearless, confident and strong Untouchable and indestructible Making the world dance to her song. See her close the door behind her Before she takes off her mask Burnt, bruised, injured, damaged She lets her truth, in sunlight, bask. See her now tremble […]

Poetry

Encounter

      I dreamt, I sailed across the blue,     Upon the wings of an angel, true It carried me into lands unknown Singing tunes men do not know I heard the softness of his voice Until I felt drowsed and woke, “Oh! Where was I?” I do not know It […]

Poetry

Zara’s story ends

Filth in their minds Come the dirty mankind, As soon as alone they saw me For their intentions they never felt sorry They buried me in the ground I was lost and never found, They tore my clothes apart, Just because they felt there hard God I believed in u […]

Poetry

Autumn Desires

She looked at me with that piercing gaze Her eyes glimmered, they had a blaze, She looked lost, and yet I knew Her beauty was unmatched, I knew it true, The autumn zephyr blew through her dark hair And a redolence released into the atmosphere, A perfume intoxicating, makes one […]

Poetry

The Shaggy Dog

I saw the shaggy dog On a crowded street, Alone it was In a milling crowd.   Looking lost In the hustle and bustle Of the evening traffic   It had a hungry look In its eyes Not frightening But appealing.   The ragged leash on its neck Told me […]
