Ek aur Shayari :)

Rajshree Singh. This post wouldn’t have been possible without you πŸ™‚

To you !!

Mat dekh ki koi shaks gunehgaar kitna haiΒ 
ye dekh ki tere sang wafadar kitna hai,
Mat soch ki use nafrat hai kuch logon se
ye dekh ki use tujhse pyar kitna hai,
Mat dekh ki wo tanha kyu baitha hai itna
ye dekh use tera intezar kitna hai,
Beshak tere ashiq ka tujh bin kuch nahi
dekh zara wo tera talabgar kitna hai,
Mat le uske ishq ka imtehan
Bata usko ke wo tera hakdar kitna hai….

 

For those who don’t understand Hindi ; here is the translation of the poem πŸ™‚

Don’t judge your man by the charges he has on him,
Rather, see how faithful he is with you…
Don’t think about the hatred he has for others,
Rather, see the depth of his love for YOU…
Don’t ponder over why he is so lonely in this world,
Rather, see the time he spends waiting for you…
Sure, your man has no other possessions apart from you,
But, appreciate the amount of claim he has on you…
Don’t try to test his LOVE for you
Just tell him how he rightfully owns you πŸ™‚

(Men – change the gender. It may fit into your life as well πŸ™‚ )

Disclaimer – I do not know who wrote this shayri. I didn’t πŸ˜›

The way I Love You …

I wrote this poem ages ago… another find from the relics of my collection.

I wrote this on behalf of some friend ( Don’t remember exactly πŸ˜› )

It’s irrevocable
The way I love you
I love you so much
As if, everywhere it’s you… only you

From me comes an aura
That reminds me of you
My energy, my life… my soul
All start from you & end in you…

The pain that grips you there
Breaks me every moment here
An eternity passed with each second
When I knew I couldn’t care…when I wasn’t there

The supple beauty of your touch
The forever present warmth
Feels like a beautiful era bygone
My heart refuses.. It just can’t move on

I fear I will forget your face
It is the only treasure I have
I fear the memories will slip away
In them I find all the courage I have…

My laughter, my eyes, my smile…
They miss the profound beauty of your love
My very incomplete soul misses,
The perfection in having you, my Love !

Crazy, it has to be – the way I love you
The best thing, about me – is YOU
Irrevocable, immutable, unchangeable, absolute
It is every day that I thank God – he brought me you πŸ™‚

……………………………..

Another poem – I love it when

 

 

To God – With love…

In giving u my strongest faith,                      
I am giving u my utmost care. 

In giving u my utmost care, 
I am giving u my deepest love. 

In giving u my deepest love, 
I am giving u my best self, 

In giving u my best self, 
I am giving u my only God, 

In giving u my only God, 
I am giving u my soul, my existence... my creation

My prayers are all I have for u…

To God, with love πŸ™‚

 

An Interpretation of Love

Exam time = Blogging + Movies …. Yep !! That pretty much sounds like me πŸ˜›

Saw one of my all time favorites yesterday- ‘A Walk to Remember’

And yeah you can guess what’s coming up next, the famous few lines ‘Love is… ‘ Though this is not what I was thinking would be my next post, nevertheless, the lines are beautiful.. And I have my own interpretations…Here-

Love is always patient and kind
It is never jealous
Love is never boastful, nor conceited
It is never rude or selfish..

It does not take offense
It is not resentful
Love takes no pleasure… in other people’s sins
It delights in truth

It is always ready to excuse..
…. to trust
…..to hope
…..and to endure

Whatever comes…..

So true and moving these lines are… And I have a thousand interpretations (exaggeration πŸ™‚ )

But, my favorite one is-

“Love is a wonderful wonderful feeling. Something that was perhaps created to make our lives simpler, happier, more peaceful. A bridge that was supposed to bridge our being and wanting to be something. It was supposed to teach us virtues like patience and kindness, resentlessness and the beauty of selflessness. Love was supposed to show us how delightful it is to be happy in the happiness of the ‘people’ we love ( It never was/ is/ never will be about just that one person… naah !! not possible). Among many other goodness enriched qualities, what makes it most beautiful is that teaches us Life.”

Yet, when we look around, we find that most of our woes arise from/ due to this love. It sounds as if God’s wonderful plan backfired. Love was supposed to ease those furrowed brows in times of woes, not be the reason behind them.

Is not Letting Go another beautiful face of love. Try it… it surely works. Love is beautiful. Experience it with open palms. Closing them tight will hurt no one else but you.

In Retrospect… The last few months

The last few months, to be honest, have been quite eventful. A whirlwind ride… some absolutely wonderful new entries, some major setbacks… failures, successes…. in all, a memorable journey; an album worth watching in flashback…

Summing up those eventful events, in case I wish to get back to them. Which, I know i will πŸ™‚

1) Made few wonderful friends… Friendships I will cherish for more than a lifetime.

2) Screwed the most important exam of my life… In the course, screwed a few other things that I should have cared for, for life… Bah !! Life’s most important exam is LIFE itself. And no body screws it πŸ™‚ even if they want to.

3) Found my long lost love, my writing coming back to me. One of the best things that happened so far. Wrote a few things that will keep inspiring me for days to come. Yes ! Some of my own pieces make me smile… πŸ™‚

4) Learned the importance of caring for a few people more than yourself… learned the importance/ beauty of being meticulous in relationships. Total awesomeness.

5) It was pure chance and randomness that led to me understanding what I want to do in life. And thank God I understood… it makes a huge part of me hassle free, clears loads of things.

6) Learned that good things do happen; sometimes just out of the blue. Did well(better than expected I mean) in XAT. Unexpected. Got a call from XIMB. Even more unexpected… The story continues though… Wait for the upcoming points πŸ™‚

Β 7) XIMB diaries- Slogged like anything to try and convert. But. Did. Not. πŸ™ …And, that is when I realised two very important truths about my life- There is a bigger plan for me and there is a 24×7 awesome friend for me :)… Dost, I promise lifetime servitude πŸ™‚

8 ) Started working for the first time πŸ™‚ And I am absolutely loving the experience. Though, I do realise that I am not meant for it… Realizations galore !! πŸ™‚

9) One of my best achievements, my Facebook Vocabulary group got deleted. Screw FB damn. It had 4000 members which we had religiously and laboriously accumulated over a period of one year. Bah !!.. Does this stop us ? NO… The Vocab Dhaba is very much there… and going strong πŸ™‚

10) The latest one- took a decision. Not many liked it. But, thank God for giving me the strength to stick to it. I will make sure that it happens the way I have thought about it… Just be with me through thick and thin.

In short… in the last few months, I came to know who I really AM…

Just one suggestion- Finding yourself. It is the most exciting treasure hunt you can ever indulge into… much better than indulging yourself into the lesser intricacies of life.

Strictly ‘Romance’…

Just a collection of the best love lines I came across… All credit goes to Mr. Novoneel Chakravarty, a well known author. Enjoy the read…

1) Love happens once… You get it or you loose it. But be rest assured, you never come out of it…

2) Loving someone truly is dangerous because it makes one bleed from the most private part (the HEART i mean… )

3) You know why I use perfume ? Just to hide my real odor… the one that was created when our senses rubbed for the first time… I don’t want to share it with anybody… Not even you.

4) A man who understands a woman’s core never goes beyond one woman in his life and a man who goes beyond one never deserves a woman’s core.

5) Love is the reason to remain sane all life and yet is an excuse to be insane in all the moments that make up a life.

6) Our story began not when we came into each others’ life. It began from the time when life happened to us. We are not only made for each other but were thought for each other too.

And, now comes my FAVORITE one :-

Hundred times you have told me why you love me but do you know why I love you? I love you because you do to my life what I myself would have done had it been under my control.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

I generally am not a hard core romantic… But; just couldn’t not pen these down πŸ™‚ . So, people like me should ideally ignore this post… Hehe


Betiyaan toh sirf Ek Ehsaas hai :)

The best lines you will ever read on ‘Daughters’. The hardest you will struggle to bite back the tears & fight back that constricted feeling in your throat. That. Poetry. By Shailesh Lodha (Taarak Mehta fame).

Kya likhun ?…
Ki woh pariyon ka roop hoti hai…
Ya kadakti thand mein suhaani dhoop hoti hai…

Wo hoti hai udaasi ke har marz ki dawa ki tarah…
Ya os mein sheetal hawa ki tarah…
Woh chidiyon ki chehchahahat hai,
Ya ke nishchal khilkilahat hai…

Woh aangan mein faila ujaala hai..
Ya mere gusse pe laga taala hai…
Woh pahad ki choti pe suraj ki kiran hai…
Ya zindagi sahi jeene ka aacharan hai…

Hai woh takat jo chote se ghar ko mahal bana de…
Hai woh kaafiya jo kisi gazal ko mukkamal kar de…
Kya likhun ??…
Woh akshar jo na ho toh varn maala adhoori hai…
Woh, jo sabse zaada zaroori hai…

Ye nahi kahoonga ki woh har waqt saath saath hoti hai,
Betiyaan toh sirf ek ehsaas hoti hain πŸ™‚

Uski aankhein, naa mujhse gudiya maangti hai na khilone,

kab aaoge, bass ek chota sa sawaal suno naa…
Apni majboori ko chupate huye deta hoon main jawaab
Taareekh batao, time batao… apni ungliyon pe karne lagti hai woh hisaab
Aur jab main nahi de pata sahi sahi jawaab…
Apne aansuon ko chupane ke liye
Chehre pe rakh leti hai kitaab

Woh mujhse australia mein chuttiyaan, mercedes to drive,
5 star mein dinner ya mehenge Ipods nahi mangti…
Na woh dher se paise piggy bank mein udhelna chahti hai
Woh bas kuch der mere saath khelna chahti hai…

Aur main kehta hoon yehi…
ki beta bahut kaam hai.. nahi karunga toh kaise chalega…
Majboori bhare duniya daari ke jawaab dene lagta hoon…

Aur woh jhuta hi sahi,
Mujhe ehsaas dilati hai..
Ki jaise sab kuch samajh gayi ho..
Lekin aankhein band kar ke roti hai…
Jaise sapne mein khelte hue mere saath soti hai..

Zindagi na jaane kyun itni ulajh jaati hai…
Aur hum samajhte hain, betiyaan sab samajh jaati hain.. πŸ™‚

And, here is the video as recited my the poet himself !

She is a woman… :)

Women in a few lines-

Wo aasha hai…
Wo abhilaasha…

Wo apnepan ki…paribhasha…

Wo saath chale
Bann ke saaya…

Us sey jeevan…bantaa aaya…

Wo dukh sehti sukh deti hai
Wo aansu bhi pee leti hai…

Har pal ko madhur banane ki…
Jeevan bhar saath nibhane ki…

Ye… ek koshish…

Beautiful song from an old television program. And I believe it aptly sums up every aspect of womanhood. To the men out there- don’t make futile plans for your lady. If it’s not everyday that you make her life beautiful, one day won’t make a difference!!!

A journey in a line- From a small seed to a towering tree, from a mere mass of protoplasm to a thinking, breathing, loving being…life is not easy. It’s a journey of compassion, nurturing and forbearance… a journey only women can undertake.

Of learning and unlearning; of loving and loosing; of giving and only giving; of simply loving… of living!!!

A journey only women can undertake πŸ™‚

She is your words and your eyes, your ears and your senses…your refuge from everything…your solution to life- she is a Mother!!!

 

 

 

 


She is your roof, your shade…your soul mate. She is the one who knows you more than you- she is a Lover!!!

 

 

 


She is a bundle of joy…with her minute arms and huge eyes; a gift to cuddle and snuggle into- she is a Daughter!!

 

 


She is the foundation of the beauty you call home; she takes care of your home, your children so that you can go out there and be yourself; she is your confidante- she is your Wife!!!

 

 

 

She spreads smiles and makes your life easy
In taking care of you she feels happy…
In praying for you, she feels blessed…
a selfless soula benevolent gift πŸ™‚

It’s just another day- a beautiful day for us… πŸ™‚

HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY…to all the beautiful women out there.

I Love it When

We all believe in love in a different way. Yet, we believe in it, in a strange likeliness. I have always believed and will always believe that:

You always rise in love. And that which makes you fall, can never be love. Just an attraction… a Fatal Attraction

Love

Here’s an old poem I wrote. Hope you like it πŸ™‚

I love it.
Absolutely love it when,
You call up for
Every small little thing.

When
You share
Every silence and every din.

I love it.
Absolutely love it when
You play with me,
Those Carte-BlancheΒ games.

When…
You say that
Only you can call me names.

I love it.
Absolutely love it when,
I realize that
I’m a confidante, a perfect fit.

When,
I know what you will say
Even before you say it.

Β I love it.
Absolutely love it when,
The sound of you,
And every emotion deceives me.

With silence when you say…
That I was created for you
That you love me!

Inspiration : A few people around me, who were in love then. And are in love even now!

*Din- a loud, confused noise
*Carte-Blanche [kahrt-blanch] – unconditional authority
*Confidante [kon-fi-dant] – a woman to whom secrets are confided (yes! that’s possible πŸ˜› )Β 

 

Part time shayar : The other side of me :)

After ages I have tried my hand at shayri… A dedication to all those who share their first love with me. Before you draw too many conclusions, I am talking about “Writing”. πŸ™‚

My catharsis is my writing, my blog, my idiotic poems and stupid quotes. Some are hilarious, some are hopelessly romantic, some are crap… but they always make a bunch of smiles when I go through my repertoire. Just to recollect the emotions that I went through, maybe some ages ago… It’s like traveling back on a time machine. Zoop!! you go straight to places you wouldn’t have liked to venture into otherwise… or memories that you would have loved to visit.

Your words and eyes are the mirror of your soul. Hence, these linesΒ  :-

” Ye jo alfaaz hain aapke…

Inse ek kashish bayaan hoti hai…

Mohabbat cheez hi aisi hai…

Lafzon ko rooh ka aaina banaa deti hai…”

 

Poo says these lines are good. I have decided to go by her words πŸ™‚
