Final Fantasy

So much light
I can't see myself
So dark around
I can't be myself
From the shackles
I'll free myself
And the journey continues.

Lay beside me,
and lift me high above
Then let go off the cliff,
for that adrenaline rush
The clouds have gone now,
will it ever rain
If you can love me now,
I can love you once again

Lay beside me,
in this gothic sky
Black blood flowing in my vein,
but i want to stay alive
The clouds are back now,
the journey continues
Its raining once again,
and the journey continues.

Crumples flowers, crumpled stones
Bruised and battered, I stand alone
Are you the wine, that can carry me with you?

Crumpled flower. crumpled stone
Carrying blames on my own
Are you the sin
are you sorry I was you?
Well, I am sorry too.

Come lay beside me,
it's hurting even more
I tried to break free all my bonds
and it's hurting even more
There's no strength left now
I am giving in, I am through
Are you …

Patriotism

Patriotism. What does it mean to us? We are the youth of the country, the supposed to be future of the nation. What do we make of these three syllables? We are the progressive section of the society, marching forward, taking India to a better and brighter future. But have we really ever paid any attention to it? Have we ever spared even a figment of our fertile imagination for the same?

Let’s have a look. I am twenty one years old. That’s right, old enough to be legally married under the laws of the state. I have no future plans. My future is as directionless as India’s foreign policy. I don’t know what I want to do with my life, apart from earning money. I study in an institution that runs on the ever cherished, ever cliché taxpayers money. My tuition is subsidised. The dollar-face Lincoln says, "Ask not what your country has given you. Ask what you have given to the country". Rather than giving anything to the country, right now I am actually taking away a large chunk of th…

HEROES

Where does the need arise? Where is the desire born? The desire to know the meaning, to understand the realms of the so-called reality, to know the answers, to comprehend those answers and then to create meaning out of it.

The greatest mysteries of life lie hidden – hidden beneath the soul. And while man reaches far and wide in search of answers, resurrecting and devouring all that lies in his way, he is too naïve to look within. For there the answer lies – the answers to the quintessential questions, plain yet profound, simplistic to the limit of being outright trivial, and yet governing the unfathomable , unreasonable method behind our madness.

Why are we here? Why were we born? What makes us special? Herein lays the desire. Herein lays the hunger, the yearning – to be someone, to make a difference. How wonderful would it fly! How wonderful would it be to be invisible! How wonderful would it be to be invincible, to be able to bend space and time, to walk through walls, to hold fire in…

Kavi Ki Awaz

Duniya se ji jo uchat gaya
do shabd suna jo log sune.n
Jag jaayen soti raatein
kuchh shor macha jo log sune.n

Har dil ki dhadkan andhi hai
har aankh sneh se banzar hai
duniya ke sookhe pathjhar mein
badal garja jo log sune.n

seemayen laangh raha koi
tujhko lalkaar raha koi
Dil dehla de har ghatak ke
Hunkaar laga jo log sune.n

Pareshaan Raat Saari Hai

Click here for the original

Here's my take on it:

Tum manzil se abhi keh do, ki milne hum kal aayenge
Abhi hum par khhumari hai, sitaron tum to so jao

Badi tumne bhi kaati hain, tanha raatein hans hans ke
Sahar muddat hamari hai, sitaron tum to so jao

Khhwabon ki khalish dekhee, haalaat-e-haqeekat bhi
Ghazab be-ikhteyari hai, sitaron tum to so jao

You Know

This is a dedicated to the "you know" series in the comic script B.C.
Most of you would have read it ... those who haven't try doing so.

I wont be drawing anything here ... obviously ... just the text.

Here;s the first one:

Khwaab Ka Paudha -- II

Umr ke kacche mod peKhwaabon ka ek ped lagayaRuk kar do ghadi ek din forSeench usko – pyar jataya
Jaane ki jaldi thi shaayadAgli subah bula rahi thiNaye dhuno aur naye raag kaNaya khwaab who dikha rahi thi
Uncchai ki chhah liyeAur kuchh karne ki pyaas liyeChhod chala apne paudhe koBas yaadein apne saath liye Chala chala un raahon mein firGumnaami ki raat katiFir aaya who naya saveraKhushiyon ki barsaat hui
Kuchh aise jeevan beeta aurKuchh khoya kuchh paya maineHar baadha ko paar kiya aurHar manzil ko paaya maine
Khushiyon ke is kolaahal meinShaam hui main bhayak raha thaKuchh karma baaki tha shaaydMan ke andar kuchh bhatak raha tha
Yaad aayen kuchh beeti baateinJin par parda main gira chukka thaBoya tha barson pehle joKhwaabon ka paudha bula raha thA Bahut soch kar aakhir ek dinUsi raah par kadam badhayeSab kuchh tha kal ke hi jaisaKisse saare sune sunaye
Fir aaya woh mod puraanaPar kuchh badla badla sa thaMere paudhe ki mitti parKoi sookhi thoonth ki kaaya sa tha
Jhar bikhre the saare patteEk…

.:ROBOTIX 2007:.

My message to the team .....
“If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time.”
That imaginary time has become real …
When everything's been said and done....
When words run out ... and so does your ability to invent new ones to suit the moment
To honor it ... to savor it
What do you say ... it’s not the first time that I have been in this situation That night u guys asked for one line ... well keeda never speaks a single line ... and again well as i said I just write my blog So, what do I say about such an astonishing fest and such a great group of people ... well for one ... it was more than about just a fest ... more than about 546 teams and 1500 participants ....more than about 2 odd lakhs spent on it ... more than 4 dog tiring days and nights ... much much more than that.
It was about self belief ... it was about a dream ... a dream come true in much bigger proportions ... it was about the look ... look on…

Song of the Year

Foreword: The following piece was written on December 22nd 2006, but wasnt posted due to lack of internet connection. So it goes here***
Well, it is the end of the year and almost everyone is coming out of their winners of the year in weirdest conceivable categories. So while it may be the recipe of the year or the best and the worst dog owners of the year, some more cliché categories are still more fun. NDTV is still in its pursuit towards finding their Indian of the year to succeed a certain Mrs. Sonia Gandhi (yeah right) ... but they have already come up with their song of the year. And that is what has gotten me started on this column. They have chosen "Masti ki paathshaala" from Rang De Basanti as the most defining song of the year ... or at least I guess that?s what the title means. Had it just been popularity charts a certain smoking number (pun intended) called beady could very easily have upstaged the winner.So is Paathshaala the song of the year. On first note, I m…
