FIR AAYI HOLI
FIR AAYI HOLI

Fir aayi Holi ek baar, fir le gayi mere  dil ka karaar;

Puchhna chahti hu, kyu rulateho tum mujhe yuhi, baar baar.

Itne rango ke beech bhi hei tan man feeka; aankhoki pichkaarise behte hei aansu zaar zaar

Saalo beet chuke firbhi nazar dekhti hei teri raah, lagaataar.

Radha ka pyaar hi hei kuch aisa, maanta nahi yeh kabhi haar

Jaise kanha ke beena Radha adhuri aise hi, piya- milan beena, Holi hei  adhuri.

Kanha tere beena rang feeke, Chand feeka; soona lage mohe sansaar.

Aa bhi ja Mohan, itna ne tadpa, raah niharu tori; kab aayega tu jamuna paar.

Happy Diwali
HERE IS WISHING EVERY INDIAN A
HAPPY DIWALI

On a dark no-moon day, comes Diwali.
Sing children joyfully, "aali re aali, Diwali aali".
Tiny lamps, make this dark no-moon night bright.
Indeed this is a beautiful, eye-pleasing sight.

Children, I know, crackers you love to burst.
But kindly a minute spare, n listen to me first.
Minutes few of fun, cause problems very big n grave.
People many, suffocated feel; n pollution we pave.

Frighten we, little babies n of course, dogs too.
In future, about our actions insane, we will rue.

Celebrate let us Diwali, with beautiful, colourful Rangolis n lights.
Share sweets special;  homemade n healthy.
Helping moms to them make, even if you are wealthy.
Let's a portion small of these goodies, with the less fortunate share.
Prove let us to ourselves, that we really n truly care.

ECOFRIENDLY HOLI
ECOFRIENDLY HOLI

Soon will be coming Holi,
And  people will play it in a group toli.

Amidst all this fanfare, request you I, to consider this most sincerely ;

When painting each other,  in a frenzy do not get caught;

Harmful paints n colours use do not; n precious water waste not.

Summer soon will follow n water indeed scarce will become .

We will it need; n request you I, to leave for plants, animals n birds some.

Wood comes from chopping off trees, which  are very precious;

An earnest request is, to play an ECOFRIENDLY HOLI;  let's be gracious.

Let's burn away all our vices and all our habits weird  and bad;

Let each of us with these,  bravely combat, without being sad.

Diwali
HAPPY DIWALI TO ALL

This Diwali, if your spirit is damp,
Look out for a small clamp;
And light a tiny oil lamp.

The lamp of faith, please do light.
It will certainly turn things happy n bright.
And that, will definitely be a wonderful sight.

This Diwali, get rid off the darkness within.
Open your heart n light a lamp there-in ;
Spreading its glow to kith and kin.

HOLI

On this day of Holi, today on  a full Moon night ;

Lost evil and celebrated victory truth and things right.

Hirankashyap and his proud sister were so confident about their might;

But lost the evil  Hirankashyap and  Holika to righteousness .

Won Prahlad's faith against his father's viciousness ;

As burnt Holika into flames, survived Prahlad because of God's graciousness.

Let us also, all our vices  burn, as burn will Holi, tonight

Along with  ire, jealousy,  suspicions,  ego and all that isn't  right

As arises morrow , spread may colurs of happiness, shining bright .

FINFIN THE DOLPHIN
FINFIN THE DOLPHIN

Poor Fin Fin, once was Fred's  favourite  toy dolphin;

But was now sadly rejected; and lying in a dustbin.

Thrown out it was because a drunk servant fed it a little gin.

A small rag-picker boy,  picked it up; from the dustbin.

washing it, wiping it;  now made it look new and clean.

As he was walking past a river, in it fell poor FinFin.

Sad was the lad, this was really bad; for now drowned FinFin.

A man, consoling him said, "grow n come up one day will, this dolphin".

Come Danny, would daily, our lil boy, to look for his FinFin.

To his astonishment great, one day he saw a big dolphin.

With glee he cried, as he saw it,  " look, here's my dear FinFin".

Days went by, with some food, he would daily feed FinFin;

Throw a ball at it, he would n return it back, would the dolphin.

Gathered people now to see this play; giving him money, in a bin.

Happily jump,  dance and spin around would,  FinFin .

During one such act, along with the ball, fell the lad as he did over-lean.

Promptly picked him up and brought him safely back, our cute FinFin.

Friends for ever they became; lil Danny and our cute FinFin, the dolphin.

My Kite
MY KITE

A girl small, requests her uncle for some "manja" and a kite.
Then goes up to the terrace quietly, choosing a lonely site.
Writing something on the kite, when away from others sight.

She then tries to fly it high up to heaven, in a hurry;  with a push light.
The kite finally soars up, Heavenward; after some struggle n fight.
Suddenly her family, after a long time, see on her face a smile bright.

The kite now, far away is, and zooming to a height;
When suddenly it is cut off and is soon out of everyone's sight.
When her they approach to console, see they, a smile bright.

Surprised they are n dumb founded, to see her dancing with all her might.
Ask her they, why happy she is about this; on seeing this plight.
Replies the cute little girl, my kite has, my mother reached; n will soon be in her sight.

I have sent my love n asked her to return; with ink blue on this kite white.
Soon, o very soon, the kite will reach Heaven, n will be within my mum's sight.
With tears they hugged her; knew they, nothing could be done, about the orphan's plight.

CHAI GARAM CHAI
CHAI GARAM  CHAI

Millions of cups of TEA/CHAI each day, we Indians happily consume

It is almost a must every morning, evening and before we work resume

Lures us its aroma at home or when we pass by a tea-stall, tempting are its fumes

One of the most consumed drinks in India is definitely chai, anyone can this presume

Huge varieties there are, count  one cannot; but the most famous I guess is Masala chai

Most Indians, specially Gujjus, this thoroughly enjoy; even foreigners must definitely it try.

Every morning a fresh cup of boiling chai makes your day; ah! that cup of "garma-garam chai"

My  most favorites are the aadu-ilaichi (ginger cardamom) n Bawaji special, the fudhina-leeli-chai

Once you sip it, along with Bun-Muska, almost addicted you are, you get a "Chaska" true.

There is an art in concocting a good cup of chai; one must know  how to it properly brew

Sadly I wasn't allowed to taste coffee or tea/chai when young, I tasted it, only when I grew

Tea here, is a drink old, but the Brits loved it n made it famous; so, chai is old tea is new

Killed and conquered He Kans; and many a devil.

That's why, Radha's name before Him, is always read.

An example fine, of Friendship with Gop, Gopis n Sudama, He set .

Actions, our own Karma, of happiness or sadness is the cause.

Wouldn't wonderful be this world; simply filled with bliss ?

CHAMELEON
CHAMELEON

Change colours people, even more often than a chameleon would ;

Thought the chameleon, many times I wonder, how easily a human, ever do that could

Infact the chameleon itself wondered, how come these guys are faster n better;

A passer-by somehow the chameleon's thoughts guessed; n told it, "a man is a go-getter"

"Aww.... may be, may be", said the chameleon, "but humans shouldn't so selfish be"

Said the man, "do this you, to yourself save, from your enemy; so that it cannot, you see;"

"But a man, knowingly immediately colour changes to suit his selfish motives n needs"

"Infact many times an innocent human he entangles, blames, or even outright, him weeds"

"Never must you mess with a human, because guess you cannot what goes on, in his head"

Most scheming he is; and can easily, an innocent one harm; if wishes he, in a moment, you will be dead".

With a sigh of relief, said the chameleon, "people sometimes, a blood-sucker call me;"

"But bro, as you truly say, now onwards, of a human, I too very careful will now have to be".

Called Calcutta or Kolkata they, the city of joy

But sadly there is poverty immense; sad, you oh boy!

Poverty that brings tears of sadness not joy;

People here are treated not like humans; mere toys

Very few lucky are to be, properly employed;

Many miscreants there are who just plot n ploy.

I hope people find their right n honest envoy.

A Burnt Toast
A BURNT TOAST

This morning  spoilt seemed, as started it with a burnt toast ;

Asked I,  " Mom, about your culinary skills I always boast;

Then tell me dear Mom, why today, this burnt toast" ???

Anyway I picked it up and most unwillingly took it along.

As I  threw it out of my car, came a lady poor and looked at it long;

Cleaned it , brushed the dirt ; and lovingly fed a child small.

She was in clothes tattered n *****,  playing with a ragdoll.

"Actually ashamed of myself I was then," said the rich lad;

He was  ashamed simultaneously about his behaviour bad.

Parked the car he did at the side; bought some  milk, toast n bread ;

Gave it lovingly to the child small n decided to this awareness spread.

Hurt never your loving Mom; n grateful be for the food.

Waste food never; even if rich you are, this is not a habit good.

Hence forth waste food, I definitely won't, and my Mom I will always respect.

I will remember and teach everyone this important aspect.

Forget never I will  that little child, so happily eating a burnt toast;

Water,  food , air,  clothes to  the poor are important n valuable most.

My life entire I spent dreaming away, oh my God, what a waste !

As a kid thought I, absolutely fabulous n fantastic was my taste !

In a glance, just a glimpse; fell in love I did, in a moment of haste !

Love you I did immensely; but you were actually a mirage, not a reality

Perception faulty was mine; nowhere between us, there was any equality

You had nothing to do with this; you were a mirage, just living in the same city

Sad, out of proportion was growing, this one sided love of mine

Never did you invite me for a date, or with you to even dine,

Crazy was my love; patiently thought I, one day things will definitely be fine

But shadows cannot an actual shape take; a mirage always will so remain

Life yours, had no place for me; in it, an entry I would never be able to gain.

Alas! on a mirage, my life entire I spent; frustrated, in excruciating pain.

SANJAN DAY

Misery, humiliation, insults, torture n inhuman behavior, they had to bear.

When they could no longer protect the holy fire; and for it no longer care;

thought they, leave they must, their dearest Motherland, wealth n cattle there.

For living there, undergoing torture was beyond tolerance; poisonous was the air.

Weary, miserable and dead-tired; on the shores of Gujarat, they finally did land.

From Diu-Saurashtra sailed they to Sanjan Bunder, requesting for a helping hand.

To persuade the ruler for shelter; stood they under the scorching hot Sun on sand.

Finally asylum granted was, after many conditions, their weapons they had to disband.

Accepted they were by Bharat (India); and finally settled down at Sanjan

Starting anew, our ancestors rebuilt Iran-shah, away from the Arab “hevaan(s)”

with honesty, integrity, hard-work, reestablished they, their “aan-baan-shaan”

now our pious duty it is, to continue their work with dedication and “imaan”.

Let's ourselves, in their position put; n their pain feel.
If we all give our bit, at least, a little pain, may perhaps heal.

JUDICIARY
JUDICIARY

Dead is our conscience and almost blind too; as the emblem of Justice is

Justice true there is hardly; it has pathetically, sadly,  almost ceased

Now three "M"s rule it; muscle power, ministers n money to palms grease

An honest man, a poor victim, from our jails, or judiciary claws hardly gets released.

What expect can one from people with a conscience dead, crumpled n creased?

Lawyers, false witnesses create and train, then their fees ten folds increase

An honest victim wrongly caught , with frustration n fight can to death freeze.

Ahura, Your justice so impeccable is, than why do innocent humans suffer like this?

PHENOMENON STRAGE
PHENOMENON STRANGE

LORD KIND,
Why have you made relationships so strange ?

Why is it that parents, their children love unconditionally, with all their heart.

These children are of their parents lives, the most important part.

Then these children, in response, return do not this love, unconditionally.

Many a times, we see these relationships are onesided with an angle of involvement commercially.

Parents practical  are not, say these children, these silly inherents.

Strangely, the cycle repeats, where love they, their children more than their parents.

Of course, as usual, exceptions to the rule, there are always.

There are children, who upon their parents dote; and for them do a lot.

Lord, whatever, You do always has a reason valid; but understand it, we cannot.

Your ways complicated and strange are, out of our comprehensive range.

Can You in some way, explain this phenomenon strange ?

OUR LIL MS GALE
OUR LIL MS. GALE

Know we all, about the mighty shots of Chris Gale;

But have I introduced you all to our Lil Ms. Gale ?

Much much better than him she is, on the scale.

Some people act funny may, after a bottle of ale;

But our Ms. Gale without ale, can make players pale.

If you dare correct her, she gives out a large wail !

She is the boss; deciding who will pass or fail.

With her unique personality, leaves behind she, a long trail.

She can be as sweet as honey or chilli; our Ms Gale;

Many a times she is actually violent like a gale.

Who gets her way each time, though small n frail.

Let's say cheers three to our Lil Ms Gale; hail, Ms Gale, hale !!!

Deviated Thinking
Deeply saddened I am at the caustic remarks made.

Wish people, a little understanding had.

No one in his right mind, purposefully do this would.

An accident, because of camouflage it was;
But poisoned tongues some, made it a murderous cause.

Even for a moment, to see reality, some didn't pause.

Poison some people can really spew;

Luckily, understand the facts did, also a few.

Mankind, indeed strange is, twist they can things easily too.

Ahura kind, grant us wisdom to things rightly interpret

So that, in Your kingdom, we wouldn't have to fret.

Bhai Beej
TO MY LOVING BROTHERS...ON BHAI BEEJ.

Precious and beautiful is this loving relationship

Together we did play, sing, dance, run and  leap;

Fought hoarse; then made up, with a cuddle and hug.

Again snatched each others slippers, clothes, pillow or rug.

When grew up we, these beautiful memories I always do treasure.

The depth of our love n closeness on these memories, I measure.

Wish I my brothers, loads of love and all wishes good.

Turn back I would those beautiful pages, those memories if I only could.

HAPPPPPINEZZ UNTO YOU, DEAREST BRO.

ઊંડી આશ
ઊંડી આશ

અંતર ના ઊંડાણ માં એક આશ છે

જિંદગી ભર ની આં અતૃપ્ત પ્યાસ છે

હ્રદયના ઊંડાણમાં, થોડો દગમાગેલો વિશ્વાસ છે.

તું નહિ જાણે, પણ તારામાં એક અદૃશ્ય આક્રશન છે ખાસ.

બસ આંખો વિચાય એ પેહલા આવી જાય તું કાશ !!!

તારા દર્શન વિના મોત થયું , તો તડપશે આં બિચારી લાશ.

ખુદા જાણે કેમ, પણ આવી નહિ આં પ્રીત મને રાસ

કદાચ જીવન ભર, કદી છીપાસે નહિ આં પ્યાસ.

તો પણ દિલમાંથી જતી નથી, આં ઊંડી આશ .

TOWEL
TOWEL

After their bath, their towel they make me,

Some kind of mischief, in this they see.

My Freyanush n  Zoi's towel, I love to be.

Such a wonderful time of the day this is; filled with glee.

As hug me they;  with their lil bodies, wet I love to get.

To stay dry I dare not with them ever bet.

To run n  jump in my lap, a time they plan n set.

They somehow succeed in getting me wet.

To be their towel, is absolute fun, a sheer joy.

Love I, to be their towel; their live- fun- toy.

Willingly I become a part of their prank n ploy.

For these cute loving pranks, I am their envoy

REASON
REASON

Request You I, to kindly tell me, or explain the real or hidden reason;

Reason why every few months,  changes a  season.

Reason why time continuously ticks; n a day,  night's fusion;

Complicated it is all, perplexed I am, there is a lot of confusion.

There's happiness less, n sadness more; what  is the reason?

We commonly see wicked n evil winning over truth, leaving a painful lesion.

People few understand the REASON for one's birth, one's mission;

If granted us you have power to reason, then why this utter confusion?

If endeavour we need to,  why surrender we must to fate, why this submission?

Laws of  Karma, sadly, show do not; thugs, scoundrels, rapists, there is treason!

O  Ahura kind,  O the wisest one, please clear my confusion;

Explain please, why do we have to surrender our will; why this submission?

PLEASE TELL ME THE REASON.

EASY WAY OUT
EASY WAY OUT

Indeed easy it is, for us, to take the easy way out;

Right it is not, to take this easy route; don't you ever this doubt.

Easy it is to slip down in these times bad, specially during a crisis

Even more so, in today's world, filled with so many ugly vices.

Where many flourish, even when they evil & the devil follow

When justice doesn't prevail; & injustice with salt we have to swallow;

Slip then people down; because easy it is, to that easy way take.

O Ahura, hellp us to the correct path take & our way to Heaven make.

LITTLE THINGS
LITTLE THINGS

Little things some, matter very much.
To these acts, one must tightly clutch.

A smile, brightens you, and people around.
Most likely, to return it, people are bound.

A sweet little word, helps tremendously, a soul weary.
Makes a tired or a sad person, feel a bit cheery.

A whistle or a song, soothes an aching heart.
Music, of Nature, of environment, is an important part.

A thank you, with a smile, makes the giver, really good feel.
A gesture kind, for life,  stay with you can, in our memory, it we seal.

A genuine sorry, can a broken relationship, to an extent mend.
With an apology, vibes of sincere feelings you can send.

વસંત ની પધરામણી થઇ; આવ્યો કુંપળ નાજુક લઈને નવરોઝ.

પણ ઠંડક ઓછી થયાં નો થોડો રહશે મને અફસોસ.

જમશેદ પડશાહે કરી હતી એની શરૂઆત

જાણે છે બધાં આં મહાન પાદશાહ ની વાત.

લોકો ભેગાં મળીને જોવા જશે પારસી નાટકો અને "શોઝ"

આં રીતે એક બીજાની સાથે આવે ફેમિલી ઓ "ક્લોઝ".

કુટુંબ, કોમ મળી હળી ને રહે, તો થાય કોમ ની પ્રગતિ.

ઝગડાઓ, મત ભેદો થી આવી રહી છે આપ્રી અવગતિ.

ચાલો નવરોઝ પર લઈએ એક પ્રણ; મતભેદ બાજુ રાખી થૈયે એક.

કોમ ની ભલાઈમાં જ છે, આપણી ભલાઈ; અનેક માં થી બનીએ એક.

તમને બધાંને આં નવરોઝ ઘણો ઘણો મુબારક.

કોમની, આપણી, બધાની થાય વૃદ્ધિ, વધે રોજી રજક.
