रौशनदान

रौशनदान से आती किरणे,
सपनों से जगाती है,
ये अन्वेषी आँखें,
खड़ी हो रौशनदान को ताकती है,
मेरा तन मिट्टी की सरोह में है,
क्षमता से छिन्न हुँ,
और लाचार बिना कदमों के,
तंग जमाने के सूरते हाल को देखता हूँ,
कभी नामवर को देखता हूँ ,
कभी यायावर को देखता हूँ ।
कभी खिड़कियों से गुज़रती हवाएँ कह जाती है ,
उठ ओ लंगड़े दाव लगा जा,
जी के नहीं तो मर के दिखा जा,
बहोत सो लिये चार पायो में,
चल आगे कुछ कर के दिख जा ।
उठ कर हौशले से जो चाहु,
हौशले संग फिर गिरजाता हुँ,
आँखे बंद कर वहीं सो जाता हूँ ।
अगले दिन जब फिर जग जाता हूँ,
फिर ज़िन्दगी यही किस्सा दोहराती है,
रौशनदान आती किरणे,
जब सपनों से जगाती है ।।

The prayer to be healed

The valley in the mountains,

Let me breathe, I ran a lot,

On the ups and down,

For the love of others.

In the search of cures,

I fought, I ran, Now tired.

Let me feel these, the sun,

the flowers, the birds around,

they heal, for sure, my lengthy and broken heart, in pieces they are,

let them be together.

Heal me O sun, the moon, and all the Almighty’s creations,

I know, You know, the treatment, be the cure, make me laugh.

You do it for all, do it for me once,

Let me breathe your holy creations.

Let me be healed, in the world of wounds.

जगह तो बहुत है

जगह तो बहुत है मेरे दिल में,

यहाँ राम भी बस्ते है,

रहमान भी बस्ते है ।।

जगह तो बहुत है मेरे कूचे में,

नमाज़ भी पढ़ लेता हूँ,

पूजा भी कर लेता हूँ ।।

जगह तो बहुत है मेरे शहर में,

मंदिरों की घंटियाँ भी बजा लेता हूँ,

मस्जिदों में सज़दा भी कर लेता हूँ ।।

जगह तो बहुत है मेरे देश में,

दीवाली की मिठाइयाँ भी खा लेता हूँ,

ईंद की सेवैयाँ भी खा लेता हूँ ।।

जगह तो बहुत है इस दुनिया में,

धर्म के नाम पर मिलने वाले से भी मिल लेता हूँ,

धर्म को न मानने वाले से भी मिल लेता हूँ ।।

“just keep your hopes awake”

In the cycle of life…We all have a beautiful mind and possibly beautiful face…The way we see this life is merely more important than living it…Just keeping ourselves awake and understanding ‘The world needs to change and you have to be the change”       -which is not important because the importance of life lies here, where you are reading this.

“just keep your hopes awake”
You are the one who can change this world.
So,”just keep your hopes awake”

It’s never too late to say “sorry” and Apologize,
but let people hide from you and they will return.
So,”just keep your hopes awake”.

The time was never yours,
from now it’s all yours…
Just set your limit to infinity and you will get it.
So,”just keep your hopes awake”.

From now no can hate you because your smiles are more important to them, 
so start giving them the importance and they will give you back.
So,”just keep your hopes awake”.

Someone left you in the midst of life,
you left someone in the midst of life…
Someone will leave you in the midst of life,
you will leave someone in the midst of life.

So,”just keep your hopes awake”.

Say “Good Night” to your friends they won’t reply.
You won’t reply a day.
Don’t think that, they will send “Good Morning” next day.
So,”just keep your hopes awake”.

Life is hell,
we all know and it becomes Awesome with ages,
we all know..cheers, we will become history a day.
So,”just keep your hopes awake”.

एक ख़त

एक ख़त में गुम थे कई जज़्बात,

तुम्हें भेज रहा हूँ |

तुम्हारी यादों के कुछ नगीने ,

तुम्हें भेज रहा हूँ ।

सर्द हवाओं की वो अंगड़ाइयाँ

कही दफ़्न न हो जाए

वो हर्फ़-ए-जवानी,

तुम्हें भेज रहा हूँ ।

बादलों की ये उमड़ जो यहाँ है,

वहाँ भी तो होंगी

चांदनी रातों को जलानेवाली ये चिंगारी,

तुम्हें भेज रहा हूँ ।

वक़्त के हालातों से घिस गयी है ये रूह,

इस बेजान सी जान को,

तुम्हें भेज रहा हूँ ।

न शान-ओ-शौक़त का इरादा था,

न ऐसे सोहरत से कोई वास्ता है,

बड़ी खूबसूरती से संभाला है जिसे,

तेरी यादों की वो दौलत,

तुम्हें भेज रहा हूँ ।।

Promises to be kept

How about getting a home in an apartment could be interesting…

or,

getting it besides the school, you studied

Or

Getting a house in a flower garden, yes, almost everywhere there are flowers.

Or

Riding a bicycle in a dense forest, where you own a house.

Well, this is not about the house. This is about the promises which are so innocent that makes you Feel, Dream and Live.

One may find it silly as it looks like…Remember

‘Silly things make life more than just interesting’

It is something you search for after getting lots of money and success, maybe for us, it would be a well-settled life.

When I was of three or something. It was an old lady, who was pulling out a bucket full of water from an old well. I remember, I went to her and I told her “Nani, when will become rich, I will get you to tap here, I promise” and she smiled.

Touchwood even today I miss that smile. This is how life goes, no one knows where we are going to get in our lives but that innocent promise needs to be kept.

It’s not the promises that keep you alive but it keeps you alarming that you have something to do and something not to.

Simply getting a house is not something you ask every day. It needs something aesthetic to make it more meaningful to you.

-Getting a room, full of Teddy bears, Just because someone liked teddies and you promised, you will.

-Getting a special place in your wardrobe for earrings, just because someone is having tendencies of collecting it.

-Getting a small pastry stand, So that you can get your best friend the best pastries, he always wanted.

-Getting a room full of toys, so that the children who don’t have toys can come to your place and can play with you in your free time.

-Making a classroom for the non-school going children.

This is what promises that I have given to some friends, some people, I admire.

You might have yours.

How about becoming a director, someone tells you to lift an Oscar and simply you tell them “I promise, I will” and simply, you start working and I believe that’s why I have a little creativity now.

You get it or not. People say it thousands of time “you can’t get that”. You can say “I can’t break my promise to someone, I admire.so I have to do this.

It doesn’t go like fantasies as your fantasies can be self-generated or a total fiction.

But the promises that you give to the people you admire or admired too, are the most valuable ones and posses possibilities…Just keep it.

No matter where they are, they are with you or Not. It doesn’t matter, it’s for your complete self satisfaction.No doubt, it will add value to your success.

Love, Peace, Dream.
