Musings of a wild fire



I am not a flame but fire, consuming all the intentions polluted with jealousy and anger.  Enervating them all and setting them "ablaze" with the fury of a wild fire consuming a parched field..

रूखी सासें

इन सूखी रगों में एक जुनून सा दौड़ता था, अब जिसका कोई अस्तित्व नहीं।
उड़ा ले गयी हैं हवाएं मुझे, मेरा कोई ठिकाना नहीं।
चिड़ियों की चहचहाट से होती थी सुबह,
मगर अब किसी का कोई फ़साना तक नहीं।
चल पड़ा हूँ सफर में , न कोई अपना, कोई बेगाना नहीं
देखी हैं ऋतुएं कई, कभी बसंत, कभी बरखा, अब तो पतझड़ का भी अफसाना नहीं।
जूझने दो मुझे अकेले, रास्ते में ऐसे ही किसी को उसके जीवन की याद दिलाऊँ,
कमस कम किसी काम का नहीं तो किसी के फ़ोन में तस्वीर बन कर ही ठहर जाऊं।

Parable of Verity



It is not too soon to start to dispel the clouds of myth and see the great​ mountain peaks that these clouds hide. As always, the myth has its charms but the truth is far more beautiful..

The dance of Drops




The golden orb could be seen in the horizon, 
Emanating rays licking the water, painting them yellow and orange. 
The waves longed to be with the sky,
Requesting the sun to take them away with it.

Helios summoned up his might and started pulling up the waves.
Drop by drop, water stretch evaporated. 
Finally, water was with the sky, forming clouds, dancing with the winds, sliding at rainbows. 
But it was now time to leave. 
Clouds grew heavy, condensed and rained down. 
Water united with the land again, for the sake of earth, with a longing to meet the sky...

Papa

Papa,



Jab me paida hui, sabne kaha, ladki paida hui hai, ye kya karegi?
Aapne unhe muh tod jawab diya - aapke beton ne kya nihaal kiya h?

Me thodi badi hui, aapne mujhe hath pakad kar chalna sikhaya,
Mjhe ghanton cycle par humaya.
Aapke kandhon par chadh kar maine mela dekha.
Kamar par chadhkar ghoda-ghoda khela hai..  :)

Aap office se ghar kabhi der se aate the.
Me aapka intazaar kare karte deewan par so jati thi.
Aap mujhe godi me lekar, mere hath me colors thamar mjhe kamre me sula diya karte the.

Aaadhi raat me mujhe darr lagta tha, to appke paas aa ghr dera jama liya karti thi..
Mujhe thand lagti to apni rajai mujhe udha diya karte the.

Mere birthday par sabse bada gift aap hi ka hua karta tha,
Kitne dino pehle se mujhe dress dilane le jate the.
School me kausi toffees baatni hain, ek raat pehle tak bhi decide nahi kar pati thi,
Par aap end moment tak jo bhi bolu la kar dete the.  :P

School me teachers agar daat lagate to aap hamesha unhe yahi kehte - "She's learning, that's why she's making mistakes. She will grow to be. Right beta?"
Agar kabhi tabiyat kharab hone ka naatak karti, to school nhi bhejne ke liye mummy ko manate.

Har wo cheez di jo maangi, mera har nakhra jhela.
Jo kaam krne ka kehti thi, khud karne ki jagah mujhe sikhaya taki mujhe aage koi takleef na ho.
Har us insaan se ladne ko taiyar rhete the jisne mujhe pareshan karne ke baare me soch maatr bhi

Meri exams ke samay me jaagti thi to mummy ke sath aap bhi jaage ho.
Me tension me hoti thi to aapko bhi nind nhi aati thi.
Hamesha kehte the "beta soja, tension mat le, jo hoga achcha hoga"
Exam ke pehle jitni novels mujhse le liya karte the ussey double mujhe exam centre se nikalne ke turant baad dilaya karte the.

Jab maine top kiya, jab maine prizes jeete, aapki aankhon ki khushi avanrnaneeya rahi hai.
Jab maine job karna shuru kiya, jisse bhi mere baare me baat karte ho, aapko gauravanvit dekh kar meri khushi ka thikana nahi rehta.

Me aage bhi koshish karti rahungi ki aapki aankhon ki chamak bani rahu aur aapko hamesha hi mujh par garv karne ka kaaran du.

Me is janam mein to chah kar bhi aapka dhanyawaad nahi kar skti
Kyunki jo bhi aapne kiya hai, agar me uska 10% bhi kar paun to me khud ko ek achchi insaan maanungi.

Me shayad paryaapt roop se aabhaar prakat nahi karti hu roz marra ke jeevan mein par jo bhi me likh rahi hoon shayad ussey me apni bhaawnayen aap tak pahucha sakoon.

Papa, thank you for being my Superman.



Love you loads! :*

Though one day is not enough to thank you for all you are, but happy father's day..I hope I make you proud. :)

Jeevan ki raah mein

Samay tha aisa jab mushkilo ne ghera tha,
Deepak jalaya to Deepak tale andhera tha.

Sisakta saaya kisi se kuch keh na paya,
Choda usi ne hath jisne tha ab tak sath nibhaya.

Chalna akele hai in raahon mein,
Kitni hi kathinaiyan aayen, sapne liye nigaahon mein.

Manzil ne pukara hai, goonj jiski kaano me padti hai,
Rag rag meri usi junoon se jhoom uthti hai.

Ye waqt bhale hi kaala h,
Par Mann me mere ujaala h.
Is samay nhi to kabi aur lakshya ko bhedna hoga,
Apna bhavishya mjhe swayam hi ukerna hoga.

Himmat nhi kisi me itni k daba sake mera fitoor,
Khud hi se ladkar dariya paar krna h Manzoor..

I will live to fight another day, and come back stronger this time.!
That's my promise...

Rise and shine!

As the night falls, I'll be haunted by nightmares and with the day I'll be buried in my thoughts,
Can feel the essence draining out of me, can feel my skin crawl where you touched me!
Never will I be able to get this out of my system, not in an eternity, it'll stay with me till the last breath leaves my body.
What do you care? You left me to die here with my scars and wounds..
- A Desolate Soul

But these nasty scars and angry wounds,
Are now an indispensable part of you.
Give into them, then they are your bane,
Or accept and rise! Just to shine again.
