[V-Day Carnival] – Jugalbandi :-)

25 Feb

The V-Day carnival is undoubtedly the biggest blockbuster of all the carnivals I have seen so far. And we are all aware of the velocity and enthusiasm with which our dear Megz has participated in the carnival dishing out one lovely poem after another.

While I was commenting on one of her recent posts on her corporate blog, I realized that there have been so many poem-to-poem interactions in the comments section of both of our posts between Megz and me that it has unknowingly formed a sort of Jugalbandi. 😯

So, my insane mind thought of compiling our merciless fits of poetic eruptions and so this post was born… 🙄

This was what happened on Not me! 

SHE

love doesnt alter wind nor water…
love doesnt stir any typhoon or tide…
it just happens when u least bother…
and takes you on a roller-coaster ride…
 

ME

Love creates ripples in the silence of the stream,
And calmness of the zephyr hears a twisting scream.
I wish I could smile with these ripples, swift and fleeting,
As I open my eyes to the day after a hopeful and wishful dream
 

SHE

dreams are but reality of tomorrows..
love is the only medicine for all sorrows..
so drift away with stars in your eyes..
someday the Love-Sun too shall rise..
 

ME

The Sun and the moon, the morn and the noon.
A celestial cacophony, full of cheerful screams.
Through the looking glass, I look out of the cocoon,
I see a frenzy heart tip-toeing silent dreams.
 

SHE

a tip-toeing heart shall seize yours too..
love u deserve would be delivered to you..
let not the maddening world impair happy thoughts..
i pray pretty soon you have ur share of Love-Clots
 

ME

When my heart’d skip a beat, and mind set free,
I would wait steadily for that moment to come,
Amidst a pandemonium of desires and dreams,
I would still have a sweet n humble tune to hum!
 

SHE

Perfect one when you shall meet
Thy cacophonic heart shall skip a beat..
A clearest voice shall then be heard..
The Whole world shall appear blurred…
Mind at rest, turmoil clears
Then my friend, I shall say Cheers..!!

ME

To imagine those words is nothing but bliss sheer,
However, it doesnt seem to be happening in future near,
I’d wait for the sunshine and for the haze to be clear,
I just want to Thank you for being my friend so dear..

************************************************************* 

And this is what happened on Do You..??? 

SHE

pyar karte hai tho jatana chahiye..
Dil ki baat dilbar ko batana chahiye..
wo pyar hi kyaa jiska izhaar na ho..
ishq mein yaar ko lubhaana bhi chahiye..
 

ME

Maana ke pyaar mein haal-e-dil bayaan karna padta hai,
Lafzon se mausiqi ka rishta kaayam karna padta hai.
Magar woh ishq ishq hi kya mere doston,
Jise dilbar ki chahat mein baar baar jataana padta hai?
 

SHE

pyaar jatane mein khaami kya hai?
mehboob ko batane mein khaami kya hai?
ek pyar bhare lafz se ho gar use khushi..
tho us khushi ko badhane mein khaami kyaa hai?
 

ME

Mohabbat jatane ka andaaz mukhtalif hota hain,
Dil se dil ka milna hi pyaar ka usool hota hain,
Lafzon ki sikudti dor se na bandhon is suroor ko,
Yeh armaan to dil ki dhadkanon se bayaan hota hain.
 

SHE

maana har baat ko bataya nahi jaata
har dam pyaar jataya nahi jaata
lafzo ke sannate se bhi kat-thi hai dor
sirf dhadkano se dil ko behlaaya nahi jaata

ME

Shayari se dil behel bhi jaaye magar,
Jo Ghazal ho armaan-e-mohtaz, usme nazaakat kahan,
hasratein to labon se keh bhi dein hum magar,
Jo Muhabbat Intezar main hain, woh Izhaar main kahan?

Picture abhi baaki hain mere dost.. The war is on…   :mrgreen:

*************************************************************

P.S: SHE is the one who started it all the time. And ME is the one who last took to the meethi nok-jhok. So should I consider my victory? Or her defeat? 😈 🙄 :mrgreen:

P.P.S: As the Jugalbandi was about love, this surely qualifies as an entry to V-Day Carnival! Hai na? :mrgreen:

P.P.P.S: I just realized that coincidentaly enough, the names of our posts are also doing Jugalbandi:-

                SHE: Do you..? 🙄

                ME: Not me! :mrgreen:

    Ahem Ahem!!
    Do I see something blossoming
    Amidst all the denials and the coaxing? 😉
    They say it all starts with a Nay
    Here’s to Jugalbandi – Yay!! 😀

    @Megz
    No offence please. I’m only trying to take Himanshu’s case here! 🙂

      @ Ags
      Hmmph Hmmph!
      Spring is the season to blossom,
      the petals, the buds do not need coaxing,
      With all the snow that is showering upon me,
      I wonder what your ill mind is imagining.. 😉

      You want to start a Jugalbandi as well?
      Bring it on dah’ling!!! 🙂

      @ Megz
      Please take offence and shower your choicest words on Ags! 😀

    yipppeee…!! de diya jawaab… ab milao taal

    and here’s for DO You..??
    kyaa baaatt hai yaarrr….. sabaasshh mere shayar…
    supperrr…. *Thumbs Up*

    intezar mein pal guzar jayenge…
    pyar ke pal nai fir aayenge…
    izhar gar na huaa tho mere dost..
    dil kisi aur se mil jayenge…

    i know that was a complete stupid thing to say.. but then its human nature to find solace in any teensyweensy care and kindness thats shown

    kyu huzooorrr ab farmaiye

    • Himanshu March 1, 2010 at 11:33 am #

      Megzy…
      Well well well..

      One after the other,
      you are spewing just splendid lines,
      Here’s my humble attempt,
      amidst all the crazy whines..

      For “Not me”
      In destiny, strongly I do believe,
      I just take time to agree that it should be.
      In love too, passionately I do believe,
      It just takes time to happen to me! 😉 😀

      For “Do you..”
      Izahar ke pul bhi bandhen jayenge,
      Aur ishq ki ibaadat kee jayegi zuroor,
      Kisi aur ke ho jane ke darr se magar,
      Keh dena dil ki baat hain humein namanzoor.. 😉 😆

      Pehen li jiye phir se shayari ki topi,
      kar lee jiye tayyari..
      Humne toh ked di baat humari,
      Ab hain aapki baari.. 😆 😛
