T.G.I.F – शुक्र हैं शुक्रवार हैं

13 Apr

As I woke up today I realized that today is Friday the 13th – the unluckiest day by many legends. As I was reading about the beliefs around this day and date, I came across this wonderful quote:-

“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.”

– Thomas Jefferson

So well, lucky or unlucky, its a Friday!! And it definitely is a reason to smile and hope for a refreshing weekend.

I had written a poem like this long long back. This poem is a variant of that one. For those who cannot read Hindi, my apologies for not being able to translate it. But, the title literally translates to Thank God Its Friday 🙂

आज देखिये चरों ओर,

खुशियों की बौछार हैं|

मानो कोई त्यौहार हैं,

शोखियों में घुमार हैं|

शुक्र है शुक्रवार हैं|


आँखों में है चमक नयी,

और होटों पर मुस्कान हैं|

एक सुनहरे वीकेंड का,

बेसबरी से इंतज़ार हैं|

शुक्र हैं शुक्रवार हैं|


टिक टिक करती घडी की आज,

तेज़ बड़ी रफ़्तार हैं|

आधा महिना हुआ ख़त्म,

आज मिलने वाला पगार हैं|

शुक्र हैं शुक्रवार हैं|


खुशियों से हो आप घिरे,

यह ही मेरा अरमान हैं|

इस ही बात पर आपको मेरा,

प्यार भरा नमस्कार हैं|

शुक्र हैं शुक्रवार हैं|

    Nice one Koshe! But a little too early for the pagaar 😉

      Thanks Anup! Early for pagaar? Nope. You get paid every fortnight here.

    Bas unse milne ka intezaar hai||
    Thank God It’s Friday hai!! 😛

    @ Sound – You got it right!
    @ Dhananjay –
    Pagaar nahi to udhaar hai,
    yeh humein bhi yaad hain,
    thoda sa apni jeb se,
    to thoda doston ka adhaar hain,
    shukr hai shukrawaar hain! 🙂
    @ Praveen – LOL! Bhai wah!
    Yeh sunke aa gaya mazaa,
    ki aapko kisika intezaar hain,
    ummeed ke bagair kuch bhi nahi,
    har din hi jaise bekaar hain,
    shukr hai shukrawaar hain! 😛

    When applications and outlook on laptops give way
    To movies and music and other things gay (as in happiness)
    There’s no reason for dismay,
    Because,thank god its a friday! 🙂

    • Himanshu April 14, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

      woohoo!! Louly Mouli!

      • Sound April 15, 2012 at 7:46 am #

        arey wah wah,..

        aaj ravivar hai aur hum dukhi
        kal se kaam hi kaam hai aur kuch nahin
        fir bhi is umeed se shuru karte hain naye hafte
        ki agle paanch din jald hi beet jaye
        aur fir se hum sab keha paye
        Thank God Its Friday 😛

    @ Sound
    Whoa! Wonderful lines.

    Nice job! 🙂 I am sure a lot of people can relate to this, except for the getting paid every fortnight part though! 😀

    • Himanshu November 12, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

      Yeah! I know what you are saying. For some of us, a fortnight’s salary goes to this black hole called student’s loan. So well, its more or less the same.. 😛 But the thought that something gets credited to your account every fifteen days is satifying 😛
