याद है…

9 Nov

It has been a really really long hiatus. I was beginning to forget that there was a time when I used to be a prolific blogger. It is this new phase of being a student again which I believe is the reason for this vacuum. I am sure you were all glad to see me shut up. But well, I can’t let you stay happy for long. 👿

The day before yesterday, I had gone to a friend’s place to work on a group assignment. Surprisingly, we were able to get through with it real quick. And when people with capability to yap endlessly are together, I don’t want to specifically mention the consequence. My friend showed me some of his photographs which had pictures of his house, his family and friends. One thing led to another, and I was driven in a fit of nostalgia. On my way back, a couple of lines popped up in my head and by the time I sat down to pen them down, I was already heading somewhere. After a day’s settling time, here I am with a silly rhyme…

Disclaimer: As you would have already guessed, its a Hindi poem and lo! I have just newly discovered a way of typing in the Devanagari script using Google IME as well. So for the Hindi impaired lot, my apologies. 😦 Also I am taking the full advantage of the server space on wordpress and putting up this picture also – clicked by yours truly on one of the recent trips to Niagara. 🙂

नन्ही सी इन आंखो में,

भोला सा सपना याद हैं.

अन्जानो की इस भीड में भी,

कोई अपना सा याद हैं.

 

 

छटते कोहरे की अंगडाई,

पूरब की किरणें बलखाई,

ओसभरे उन फुलों को,

हलके से छूना याद है,

अन्जानो की इस भीड में भी, कोई अपना सा याद हैं.

 

हजार खिलौनो की चाहत,

बचपन की हर इक शरारत,

दोपहर रसोई में छुपकर,

लड्डू चुराना याद है,

अन्जानो की इस भीड में भी, कोई अपना सा याद हैं.

 

हार न थी और जीत न थी,

हिसाबो की भी रीत न थी,

घुटनो की उन ज़ख्मों को,

माँ का सहलाना याद है,

अन्जानो की इस भीड में भी, कोई अपना सा याद हैं.

 

दुनिया के हर रंग में,

धीरे धीरे रंग रहें हैं,

अंबर की ऊँचाई में,

सपने भी अब सिमट रहें हैं,

सात सुरों के सागर में,

मासूम सी बंदिश याद हैं,

अन्जानो की इस भीड में भी, कोई अपना सा याद हैं.

    Long time pal. It feels great to see your comment. I am sorry, but I was kinda bent on writing this one in the Devanagari script.
    Thanks for the compliment! 🙂

    @ Dish
    //yet the quality of the content did not surprise me// –You are already sounding like a manager!
    Thanks a lot for those kind words.
