I was a visitor on
HP...
For my sister who was there
For whom I did care..
I came and read work of her,
Enjoyed the links and the flavour.

Then I joined and became a member,
Did not think it will be this fun time together.

Three years on and still counting
Two daily's and still enjoying,
Never thought it will be this much fun..

It's a cosmic connection,
World with no boundaries and
so rare,
Met so many people,
so many nationalities,
So many names
and
So many poems,
And yet,
It doesn't matter anymore,
All are connected with heart of writing,
Poems flow through veins and arteries,
And love oozes out in comments and likes..
Never thought the journey will be so much fun.

Thank you everyone
You make this platform a perfect body with no disease.
A body with glow and charm of its own.

A soul gone,
A relative of someone,
A parent of a child,
A spouse of someone,

Somewhere around,
Loss,
Unknown to me though.

But,
The pain is real,
The pain is mine,
The pain I can feel,
The pain I can relate,
The loss I can imagine.

The year has broken families,
The year has written history,
Around the world the loss is real,
The world has come to stand still.

World!

World,
World was supposed to become a better place to live,
Where humans will not **** humans for piece of land,
Where respect for making will prevail in highest form,
Where all will be equal with no queen and King,
Where it will be surrounded by peace, liberation and calm.

But,
This could not be,
Civilisation taught us to be craving,
Craving for luxury,
Craving for better food,
Craving for better transportation,
Craving to reach the space,
Craving to be better than other tribe.

World,
Had become a jugular a circus,
Had become unruly and tumultuous,
Had become unforgiving,
Had become painful,
Had become demanding,
Had become dominating,
Had become anything but loving.

Today,
Different borders are at war,
Threatens are heightened by super powers,
Global trade is politics,
Politics is economy,
Ruining a country is a flicker away,
Breaking a human a blink of an eye,
Trolls are everywhere,
Troubles for all,

World,
Has become one platform,
But the love has just gone away.
The givers refuse to give,
The takers refuse to take,
Everyone want a say,
But don't want to share.

World,
was imagined to be better place to live,
Yet,
Imaginations has highly failed miserably.

Lots of girls/women in India are in this type of relationships, many post marriage.

There's an apartment,
In front of my house,
All with balconies facing mine.


None has a green hand but one,
& that entresol is full of life.


A combination of frondescence brings life everywhere,
Pegions & birds sits on its roof,
Feasting my eyes and ears full.


A small 4'/6' space used so very intricately,
A garden in the edges,
&
It's a working space too,
With clothes line and washing machine.


Big green tomatoes,
Red peppers,
Lemon grass,
A big red Jasmine flower,
Abundant cherry tomatoes,
A small Mango tree,
A gooseberry tree,
A bamboo tree too
They all fill and fit in that small space.


The dedication of family amazes me,
Their empathy for plants fills me with gratitude,
They don't pluck anything,
All veggies and fruits ripe on plants,
A green cherry tomato turns red on the plant,
A green pepper turns shining red,
Jasmine blossoms on the tree till it withers,
It's an amazing thing,
It's patience and pristine.


The mezzanine in front of mine,
It's life in itself,
The otherwise dead apartment,
Comes alive just because of this foliage.

अंग्रेज़ी हुकूमरान हो,

सब को एक दिन सुपुर्द-ए-खाक़ होना है।

हर शक्स अपने चरम पे
मग़रूर था,
आख़िर समय में कफ़न में लिपटा
किसी के कंधों पर मजबूर बना था।

मेरे मुल्क ने ज्यादतियां देखी,
मग़रूर की मस्तियां देखी,
इतिहास गवाह है,
इन सब के बाद भी हिंदुस्तान ने
फिर से एक सुनहरी किरण देखी।

हुकूमते आयीं और चलीं गई,
मेरे मुल्क ने किसी को प्यासा नहीं भेजा,
जागीर लुटा के आने वालों को जागीरदार बनाया,
भिकारी को भी यहां तख्त से नवाज़ा।

आज का दौर भी गुजर जाएगा,
इतिहास बदला जाएगा,
बेजुबानों को सुनने वाला,
कोई ना कोई जल्द ही आएगा।

I loose my appetite,
I feel the hunger felt by the poor,
I change my menu subconsciously to simple.

How I wish I could help each one,
How can half of world celebrate
and other half left to die?
How can one part enjoy

Rich, poor, old and young?
Is not death a certain future?

Is not this time a reminder of our duty to share,
When country is surrounded by toughest time ever?
How can people laugh and enjoy,
party and roam around?

It's time to practice sacrifice,

It's time to give the food

It's time to share smiles with tears flowing

It's time to live life simple,

It's time to acknowledge our neighbours,

It's time to remember we are becoming part of history,

Where future will ask questions for our actions,

It's time to preserve our deeds,

It's time for Google to store the stories,

Of all the good the humanity did,

It's time to raise above all the past examples,

Of best deeds of mankind ever,

Just be kind,

Anything
and everything
That happens in my life
Is created by the God.

All the goods I have,
All the bads that ever happened,
All was designed by God.

I cannot take credit
of my wisdom,
Nor I owe anything
to my ignorance.
All was destined
the way it's happened.

One can plan good for me,
I don't give them credit.
One can plan evil for me,
I don't blame them either.
They are just the mediator between God and me.

The time they spent on planning the good or evil,
I can assure them, God was with them at that moment.

In His presence they planned,
If they wished me well,
God might have blessed them too.
If they wished me ill,
God might have
written it for them.

They are just mediators
in the life I live,
They can benefit by
thinking about me,
Because when they
think about me,
God reaches them too, through my thought.

It's just not about me,
It's about everyone
that's
walking on the road,
Dog, Ant, Fly, Lion,
YOU & ME.

Why be proud of achievements?
Why lose heart
over losses??

Don't let others force

When you are calm,
Come out of your cocoon,
Bloom yourself in the beautiful human-being

अगर तुम साथ दे देते,

बेवफा इस दुनिया में
तुम्हारा नाम कर जाता।

तुम्हारी एक हंसी के लिए
दुनिया से लड़ जाता,
अगर तुम हाथ पकड़ लेती,
मौत से भी भिड़ जाता।

अब तो बस अलविदा के पहले,
तुमको नज़र भर देख रहा हूं,
गुज़रे वक़्त के कई सवालों को
पूछने से रोक रहा हूं।

पर फिर भी,
तुम्हारी आंखें दगा दे रही है,
और इसीलिए,
यूं ठहर के बस एक ही सवाल है,
क्यूं यह नज़र शर्मसार है?

सिर्फ साथ मांगा था,
हर आज़ादी के साथ,
जो तुम साथ दे जाते,
दुनिया से लड़ जाता।

उम्र भर तुम्हारी आंखों में
ज़िन्दगी तलाशता रहा,
मेरी उम्र के अंतिम पड़ाव में
ख़ुशी झलक रही है उनमें।

जिस चिंगारी को उसकी नज़रों में अपने लिए तलाशा था,
वह मेरे गुजर जाने से आएंगी,
सोचा ना था।

क्या मांगा था तुमसे
सच्चा प्यार ही तो ना?
नहीं था तो कह देती,
यूं झूठी उम्मीद में तो ना रहता।

आज मर के भी सुकून नहीं,
जीते जी भी कहां सुकून था,
मोहब्बत खोजता रहा जिसमें
वह बेवफा निकली।

पूरी उम्र जिस शक्स से दिल लगा बैठा,
पूरी ज़िन्दगी में जिसमें जीने की चाह ढूंदा,
आज जा कर पाता चला,
वह तो पत्थर की गुड़िया निकली।

उस एक क्षण में नभ, आकाश, धरातल, पाताल सब तल्लीन हो एक ताल पर थिरक उठेंगे।

ना झपके नयन पल भर भी।

नयी सुनहरी लालिमा की
हम सब भी हैं जोहते बाट,
कब आएगी वह पावन सुबह
भस्म करेगी सब विरक्त विचार।

यह जो कालिमा की बदरी है,
घनघोर विपदा छायी है,
शूलों के घातक प्रहार से
जन मानस में अक्रंद मचाई है,

यह रुदन को दूर हटाने को,
जड़ीभूत हो नि:शब्द अचला खड़ी।

मृदंग, ढोल, ताशे, ताल सजा कर,
घुंगरू पैरों में बाँध कर,
गूंजने के लिए गर्जन भारी
चीरती उसकी क्रंदन है,

No future prediction can be true,

I thus pray to God,

To let the kids be alive
hail and healthy,
Let them be unscathed with this horrible disease,
These kids will become the future tomorrow,
They will read the history that He created,
Let them be the least affected,
For they can lead the human race forward.

Not many from us will
move forward in this
turbulent time,
But let the kids go forward and live a long life,
For we have given them all the knowledge,
that Noah might
have known on that ship
to create a fresh world!

Let them be happy and shiny,
For they have to believe You existed,

They will carry the legacy of human kind forward.

Prayers for the Young
Generation growing up today,
Feeling the pang inside,
Feeling the urge to do something,
That urge they never
felt until tonight.

The kids have seen it
all in one go,
Their history books recreating all scenes,
The epidemics of pasts
all zooming by,
The partition trauma they saw with immigrants moving,
The thousands of death
they saw happening,
No wonder they grew
a lot in a week,
Innocence making
conviction of becoming
something one day.

Kids today learnt the careers and career paths,
They understood the reason
to study,
to earn,
to contribute
to the society,
They have grown a lot tonight with clear meaning of purpose of being born.

The generation that
grew on technology,
Never really understood much of old beliefs,
Washing hands,
feets, mouth seemed
unreasonable burden,
To eat fresh veggies to increase immune system
was out of question,
Tonight they have become intelligent  that books
couldn't make them,
Immunity and germs they have learnt a lot.

I thus pray to God,
To let them be alive,
hail and healthy,
Let them be unscathed with this horrible disease,
These kids will become the future tomorrow,
They will read the history that He created,
Let them be least affected Dear God, for they can lead the human race forward,
Not many from us will
move forward in this
turbulent time,
But let the kids go forward and live a long life,
For we have given them all the knowledge,
that Noah might
have known on that ship

Prayers for Calm!
Few hours from now
A new dawn will arise,

Few hours from now,
New hopes will blossom,

Few hours from now,
The whole gloom shall disappear

Few hours from now,
The world will be united in joy,

The world was never one,
The borders, the states, was created through civilization.

The shackles of names of countries
Disappearing under oneness.

So much love is around
All hatred disappeared,

People now have care
All selfishness gone.

No one can say I rule,
No one is spared

Even the crown Prince
Cannot claim his rule.

Let the dawn bring
Cheerfulness
Meaning
And laughter

Coz' it hurts to see
Earth crumble up in despair.

A World with No Boundaries
Lock down everywhere,
Quarantine is the word,
Nations cutting ties with other nations,
World at stand still,
Just trying to be safe.


Are we becoming a bordered state,
Or
Turning borderless finally?


A world with no boundaries.

Moved on...
.
I have moved away
Far away from where
we left ages ago..

I have forgotten the
words you said,
I don't even remember the emotions,
That we shared ages ago.


I have spent hours of agony,
Cried till my eyes refused to shed tears,
I have no images of those memories
That we shared back then.


Today, you want to ignite
the flame
of left over relations,
How will fire burn on something that doesn't exist?
I don't even feel the pain that you gave me ages ago.


We had shared the best relation back then,
But then it withered
like dried flowers,

We had shared our emotions
Just by mere exchange
of glance,
But then we stopped
looking at each other,

Life had moved on,
So had I,
You left me back then,
Why try again?
I am not sorry
But
I have moved on.

.

There is always a you in him,
And a him in you,
I see a lot of him when I see you,
I see a lot of you when I remember him.
I become satisfied when I see you,

Because my eyes search for him,
I am searching for those glimpses that brings him out in you.

I am reaching out to your your cheeks,
In desperate attempts to feel him,

I look beyond your eyes, deep,
Just so that I can see him within.

You remind me of him,
I had one before you.

You complete me,
But he created me,
long before you came,

You fill me with emotion,
That he stirred in me,
long before you existed,

You make my life complete,
That he started with his footprints, long before God sent you,

You try to bring smile on my lips,
That he started to draw,
before he decided to call it quits and left us forever,

And so, my little angel,
You are now left to fill in for the two.

Siblings, one in heaven, another on Earth
I need to share today a post dedicated to special mothers. The MOTHERS OF DIFFERENTLY ABLED KIDS

Today is the day a special mom was born.
I want to tell the world that when a special child is born, the mother doesn't know anything of his/her needs. She learns, she grows with the baby.

When a special need child is born, doctors don't know the future, the baby doesn't tick the parameters, the child doesn't bother to follow rules set by normal people, accepted by world, a special mom learns it all by experience.

When a special need child is born depending on severity the doctor pronounce the verdict, considering themselves nothing less than God, they declare the child will be
Vegetable.(I was told this for my son, when he was 9 days old... I WAS A NINE DAYS OLD MOM!)
Hyperactive.
Blind.
Deaf.
Microcephaly.
Hydrocephalus.
Mild­ delayed.
ADHD.
Time will tell.
Etc, etc...
Just like routine

Imagine and feel, when a doctor tells a new mom all this, little do they think that the mom was a girl few months back, she don't even know how to care for "so called normal child" keep apart caring for a special need child.

The mom learns, the mom grows.

Respect and love special need mothers.

No compassion, no sympathy, empathy may be.

Making of a Soul.
.

To listen to evil is not in
one’s control,
To react is.

To give a cold shoulder to the
evil doer is not in one's control,
To believe is.

To pacify the evildoer
is not in one's control,
To judge is.

Use thy wisdom to
maintain the balance,
Use thy power to control
the emotions to be neutral,

Be on the right side
of the thin line,
That separates thee
with the evil doer.

Always be in command
of thy tongue.

Pacify one can,
Accuse thou shouldn't.

To be a support is one's nature,
To take a side will determine thy character.

The belief will become one's soul,
On it, your future generations will remember thee.

JUST LOVE!
Love has been on this
planet for long,
We should not own
it as ours,

It's a feeling on
the earth,
From time beyond
and bygone,

Love resonates in flowers,
trees and animals,
In Sun, Moon,
Sky and Sea,

Love shines in
Venus and Mars,
In beauty of rocks,
River and breeze,

Love has been on this planet
before me and you were born,

Don't judge it,
Don't name it,
Don't bracket it,
Don't command it,
Don't demand it,

JUST LOVE IT.

From bud to bloom and sundried gloom.

A thing to learn from aging and dying..

धोका है,
दर्द है,
नफरत है,
जुनून है,
झूट है,
सनक है,
फरेब है,

जोश है,
द्वेष है,

राजनीति की यही तो पहचान है।

जो इन बेहकावों में गिरफ्त हुआ,
उसका समझो काम तमाम हुआ,

ना यारी- दोस्ती पर विश्वास रहा,
ना समाज का डर रहा,

इनकी भक्ति करने वालों का भी
बुखार से बुरा हाल रहा,

अपनों का साथ छोड़ दिया,
राजनेताओं पर विश्वास हुआ,

जब घर आयी विपदा तब,
गलती का एहसास हुआ,

जब राजनेताओं से मिली यह सौगात,
तब अपनों का साथ रास हुआ!

My country.

With proud and respect,
Lives the elders here,
With pride and head held high,
Lives youth here,
With dedication and devotion,
Farmers ploughs field here,
With confidence and sacrifice,
Fights the soldier here,
With love and laughter,
Grows the kids here,
With intimacy and simplicity,
Wives manages house here,
This is my country,
None other like this exists.

Slowly the country moves,
To become the golden bird again,
No enimity with any nation,
Making it's identity alone,
With peace and humility,
Becoming a symbol it stands high.

It has never divided nor will ever divide,
This is united India(country) of mine,
Built by Lord Krishna and Ram,
Dreamt by Maurya,
It didn't break when it was  ransacked,
Though weakened for a second,
But became stood rock solid and strong.

Each drop of blood flowing from,
the nerves of each individual here,
Shouts and recites loudly
Great is my country,
Great is my country.

Translated work from my Hindi poem,
Bharat desh mahan mera!
.
गर्व से सम्मान से,
जी रहे बुज़ुर्ग यहां,
गौरव से अभिमान से
जी रहे युवा यहां,
समर्पण से त्याग से
सींच रहा किसान यहां,
आत्मा विश्वास से, बलिदान से
लड़ रहा जवान यहां,
उल्लाहस से प्यार से
बढ़ रहा बच्चा यहां,
अपनेपन से सादगी से
संभाल रही गृहणी घर यहां,
यह भारत देश है मेरा
मिसाल इस जैसी कहां।

धीरे धीरे बढ़ रहे कदम,
बनने चिड़िया सोने की यहां,
किसी मुल्क से जंग नहीं
अपनी पहचान खुद बना,
अमन से शांति से
बन प्रतीक यह खड़ा यहां।

ना बटा है ना बटेगा,
यह अखंड भारत महान मेरा,
निर्माण राम - कृष्ण का,
सपना मौर्य का,
टूटा नहीं जब लूट मचाया,
कमज़ोर हुआ क्षण भर को,
पर चट्टान सा मज़बूत बना,

हर शक्स के अंतरमन में बह रहा
जज़्बात यहां,
हर धधकती धमनियों के
रक्त में ज्वार यहां,
चीख कर शोर मचा हर ओर
यह एक यहां,,
भारत देश मेरा महान,

भारत देश मेरा महान।

Let my soul be free!
.
Your spirit have come today,
Covered in blood stains,
Questioning my intention,
But
with compassion.

Your spirit have come today,
To see me in prison,
Looking a lot tired,
Questioning about our
girls well-being,
But
Without accusations.

Your spirit have come today,
To finally "see" me,
All drained of anger,
Questioning my love for you,
But,
with tender warmth.

Love got ruined,
Peace got robbed,
Neither you lived,
Nor am I free,

You punched me in on
my face,
I killed you in fit of rage,

In that moment our
lives shattered,
You gone,
Me in prison,
Our girls orphaned.

The time we loved each other,
Married defying all odds,
Did God write in lines of my palms,
I will ****** my beloved?
Did God plan your death
by the hands you once loved?
Did God plan for our girls
future a life without us around?

How will our girls live
without our love,
They who can't even cook,
Can't sleep without us,
They who must be afraid
in the big world,
Without us around
they will be so scared.

Your spirit have come today,
I guess,
To ask questions,
Of my actions,
Or
Repent your actions,
Of discussing the life
That could have been
If,
I wouldn't had acted
in rage,
Of,
The trust we both lost,
Of,
The love that became
possessive,
Of,
Ego's and hurt,
Violence and pain,
Fights and anger,
Duties and Responsibilities,
Rights and wrongs,
Of finally,
YOU AND ME.

You have come today
in your spirits and soul,
Wait till I come to you
to discuss these questions,
Let me be released and
set upon free,
Not from the prison but
from my rented body,

Let me be free..
Let my soul be free..
Let my soul match your soul.

Anxiety
.
That feeling of anxiety,
When the intution is strong,
Of something wrong
About to happen,
Somewhere, unseen,
but close enough to hurt,

When mind goes
topsy turvy,
Heart skipping a
beat,
The nerves on
restless path,
The feeling that takes away
the calm,
The endless walking,
The thoughts going berserk,
It kills the smiles,
It makes life hell.

The
Prayers,
Spiritual readings,
Diverting of thoughts,
And still the
Palpitations continues..

And then
.
.
One day,
Sanity returns,
Flutter ends,
Silence prevails,
Storm has gone
No harm done,
that day
FINALLY the
PEACE REGAINED.

THAT FEELING
.
.
PRICELESS.

Flood
The loss of worldly things can be calculated,

What about those emotions that went with those stored things.

The ink on letters were erased away in flood,
The old stored letters washed away too.

People are crying for the loss of
their house,
I had left my heart long ago.

I had been living a life of
adjustment,
Love, I had left long ago.

I was engrossed in life full of responsibilities,
Did not had time to remember my memories.

Today the whole city is filled with flood,
They are crying for their loss.

But I had lost my beloved's letters, poems, memories,
And today I am crying for the loss
of him.

The relation was lost long ago,
Emotions got water burial today,
For that loss of mine
I got the freedom to cry today.

Sparkle In Wisdom
(A translation of Hindi poem Sailab)
(The speaker parted ways with her beloved, got married and was living with adjustments in new life for years, in flood she loses all her belongings but the most painful was loosing old letters of her beloved.
She did not get freedom to cry when she left her beloved, today under the disguise of crying for lost worldly things, she is actually crying for her long lost relationship)

WOMEN - IT'S YOU.
...
You charm around the crowd
They start branding you,

You sparkle in brilliance
They start cornering you,

You shine among the people
They start breaking you,

You listen to them more
The more they weaken you,

You change for them more
The more they tame you,

You begin to understand them
They start manipulating you,

You start feeling yourself worthless
They start being generous with you,

You embrace the thought of dependency
They begin to treat you like Royalty,

You start enjoying being pampered
They start criticizing you,

You start accepting bullying
They start torturing you,

You speak their language
They call you foolish,

You shrink in wisdom
They brand you invalid,

You changed your perception,
They thought you were dumb.

This is a life of women,
Don't let this happen to you,

Don't change your thinking,
Overpowered by anyone,
Listen to all but,
Speak as you want,
Don't give back but,
don't listen harsh
either,

You have a brain of yourself,
You always had,
Use it harder.

Women, you are half of the world,
The better world holds you strong,

Don't wait for anyone to
Judge,
Accept,
Acknowledge,
Appreciate,
Your beautiful presence on PLANET.

सैलाब
सामान का तो एक बार
हिसाब लगा भी लेंगे,
उन जज़्बातों का क्या जो
बाढ़ में तबाह हो गए।

कितने पुराने किस्से थे
जो स्याह से सफा हो गए,
उन खतों का क्या को
बाढ़ में सफेद हो गए।

लोग रो रहे हैं अपना
बसेरा लुटा के।
हम तो अपन अपना घरौंदा
बरसों पहले बिखेर आए थे,

किताबी रिश्ते निभा रहे हैं
मुद्दातों से,
अपना सब कुछ तो पहले
ही लुटा आए थे।

जिम्मेदारियों के बोझ में
ऐसे फंसे थे,
यादों को याद करने का वक्त
ही नहीं रहा।

आज पूरा शहर पानी में
डूबा है,
लोग रो रहे है लुट जाने के
सदमे से।

उजड़ उनके नग्मे, ग़ज़लें,
खतों का पिटारा गया है,
अश्कों का सैलाब हमारा
अब उमड़ा है,

बरसों पहले बिखरे रिश्तों को
जल समाधि आज मिली है,
उमर के उस हिस्से के लिए खुल
के रोने की आज़ादी आज मिली है।

Motherhood
I remember my rides
With high speeds ..
The thrills, the adventure in rain, hail and shine..
I remember my days spent wandering...
In countryside and beyond..
I remember heavy rains..
Made sudden urge for drive...
The unplanned long drives,
The eating out was always a norm..
And junk food was so much fun...

The speed kills, never detested my love to ride back then,
And
Life was so much fun...

The adventure is all changed now,
Since my daughter came along,
I started to watch my speed,
And 30-40km/hr became a check point in my life,
Rain became a slippery mess,
And I became a careful rider..

Where,
I cannot meet an accident,
Getting injured or sick is out of question,
Being healthy is a compulsion..
And life cannot be taken for granted,
Cause I have to take care of my little one.

I cannot be a careless mess,
I cannot eat burger for lunch..
My daughter demands pizza and fries,
I serve her baked veggies topped with sunshine..(fried egg)..
She give me a harsh look to ****..
I give back her a smile..
She knows her gaze did not ****..
She attack her food with no fun...

All my ABC's start with veggies and fruits..
Cautious me is always in a fret..
A bit cold makes me a nurse,
I wrap my daughter in coat doubled of woolen.

When she overhears my adventure days,
She can't believe her ears and feels all untrue..
One day she saw my album of old pics..
Questioning eyes, accusing eyes all was on her face..
The pic had me..
Riding fast..ending on a pizza joint, with spirits in my hands ..
And now,
I have a sheepish smile to hide my fear.
Trying time of explaining stuff that had been a distant past..

Next thing on my list was,
To hide the album deep,
For never to be found again till she becomes a parent, a mom....!

The adventure of being a mom are too high...

Mom can't have a drink and sleep carefree...
But with sleepless nights, she become a zombie.
Mom can't go for long drive , can't spend night- outs with her friends,
And she ends up with tension high degree, When daughter doesn't return from her friend's birthday celebration.
Mom can't spend time on the foolish talks with her friends on phone ...
For the energy drains with arguments with daughter for rights and wrongs
And for the now that's wrongs, which was once right .

Being a Mom is toughest thing...
To live a life with example is the adventure in itself.
