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
khumaar doosra hai
yaar bhi wahi hain, par
pyaar doosra hai

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

The Awesome Threesome

I expect the DC++ hoggers already know about "Three KGPians day out", well here is a new version of it.

Four days before the end sem exams, and on the eve of the day which has three tests in store for them, three KGPians, decided to go out for a late night snack. Actually there wasnt much decision involved except for the place where they would be willing to hog down stuff. The local canteen won on the grounds that being the nearest, they would be WASTING much lesser time if they went there.

The guftagu began, after the initial rite of ordering your stuff. Two Bread Butters, one beg sandwich, and a cup of tea. No maggie, no chowmein -- seriosly these people were low on budget. Before we get any further into their actual conversation, lets name the three dramatis personae. On account of confidentiality, they have requested that they be known by aliases. So lets call them MyTh, Quark and manGO.

As the three waited for the food to arrive, manGO being in a counter reflective mood de…

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.
