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

For You (The Girl In Purple)

Dear Girl in Purple,Let me start at the bottom-line itself: I don’t like you. I don’t like you because you brought to the surface the very facet of my being that I dreaded the most – that being: acute paranoia, extreme wariness of public embarrassment, and of course my utter discomfort in the mere presence of a girl. Remember this – I have tried all my life to shield these aspects from public knowledge. For me these are more covert than perhaps the existence of the Holy Grail.Alas, though, as all this is now a thing of the past.You make me feel pathetic and miserable. I mean, how difficult is it to walk up to a cute girl in a coffee shop and say “hello” or whatever else might be fitting. What is the risk I am playing against? No probable solution of the Schrödinger’s equation will make my saying “hello” lead to a nuclear holocaust. Life is not like the Butterfly Effect. But my utterly female-terrorised brain makes me believe otherwise. Or maybe, it’s just that guys who talk of solutio…

कल रात तुम्हारे online आने का इंतज़ार करता रहा
बोझिल आँखें तुम्हारी बत्ती के green होने की आस देखती रहीं

बात तो वैसे कुछ ख़ास नहीं थी
पार बात तो फ़िर भी करनी थी
दिन कैसे बीता, जब चोट लगी -- क्यों हँसा,
यही सब कहनी थी

दो बार "thr" भी मारा, सोचा कहीं "always-idle" तो नहीं
कोई reply नहीं आया तो सोचा की अब यही सही

शायद आज तुम्हारा mood नहीं था
४ बजे वाला कोहरा भी घिर आया था
मैं आँखें मूँद नींद का इंतज़ार करता रहा
कल रात तुम्हारे online आने का इंतज़ार करता रहा

इन बोझिल आंखों को तुमसे chat करने की आदत सी हो गई है.

Do follow up to the jugalbandi

And for those whose Hindi font is not working:

Kal raat tumhare online aane ka intezaar karta raha
bojhil aankhen tumharee batti ke green hone ki aas dekhti rahi.n

baat to waise kuchh khaas nahi thi
par baat to fir bhi karni thi
din kaise beeta, jab chot lagi -- kyun hansa
yahi sab kahni thi

do baar "thr" bhi maara, socha kahin "always-…
