Prem Geet

दो shabd, teen matra, chaar panktiyan, ek chhand
geeli farsh pe bikhre panne
kar syahi ki botal band

Aangan mein pasre kapde jo
sookh chuke the ghanton se
bhiga raha hai unko badal
aansoon se apne hans hans ke

Bauchharon ki masti ko
man aaj bada lalkar raha
adhrange panno ko main
man-beman se faad raha

Lafzon se man tha joojh raha
mausam woh bada nirala tha
garm tel ki khushbhu thi aur
haathon mein ek pyaala tha

Koshish ki kaafi maine par
shabd kahin fanse se the
shayad dekh tumhara belan
bechare sahme se the

Chhavi banaoon us pal ki main
shabdon ka ek jaal bunoon
tumhe samarpit karne ko ek
rang chhand ras raag rachooon

Mausam badle, tevar badle
sookha sa sawan aata tha, jaata tha
kahne ko thi jo baatein
kayar man keh na pata tha

Jaane kitne saalon pe
wah sawan fir se aaya hai
yaad dilane wah din fir se
kuchh bheege badal laaya hai

Yaad mujhe hai aaj bhi
Kal ke geet ka vaada hai
par sach -- mera banjar man
wah ek geet bhi aadha hai

Reflections

महफ़िलें वही हैं, ये
जाम दूसरा है
बाज़ार है वही, पर
दाम दूसरा है

ख्वाहिशें वही हैं
खुमार दूसरा है
यार भी वही हैं, पर
प्यार दूसरा है

सब कुछ है हूबहू, बस
ख्याल दूसरा है
वो साल दूसरा था, ये
साल दूसरा है

_______________________________________________

mehfilein wahi hain, par
jaam doosra hai
bazaar bhi wahi hai, par
daam doosra hai

khwahishein wahi hain

pyaar doosra hai

sab kuchh hai hu-ba-hu, bas
khayal doosra hai
woh saal doosra tha
yeh saal doosra hai

The Year Of - Derivative Poetry

Embers, fires and slumbers
stoked, fanned and broken

dreams, promises, kisses
borrowed, begged or stolen

palms sweaty, knees weak, arms heavy
ribs bruised and eyes swollen

from earth, dust and ashes
rising
unbowed, unbent, unbroken.


Coming of Age

Sometimes, I just feel lucky to be born when I was, to be born in this time and age, to have seen so many contenders for the "Greatest of All Time" tag.

Lucky to be born in the age of Michael Schumacher and watch him beat record after record. To be born in the age of Lance Armstrong, for whom beating opponents and records was but a secondary feat. To be born in the age of Zinedine Zidane, most certainly the best of this generation, the marquee headbutt notwithstanding.

Lucky to have watched not one, but two legends, pass the baton in tennis.
When Pete Sampras lost in the Wimbledon of 01, it made fans of him hate that pony-tailed guy for ending his quest for a 5th consecutive crown. I know I did. But Pete shouldn’t mind that now, for over the course of next 8 years or so, Roger has shown that when it comes to beauty on the tennis court he has got the entire WTA beat, by a long shot (down the line).

And then there’s Sachin Tendulkar, whose one mistimed shot makes your heart skip a…
