छोटी सी बात

हलकी बारिश की बूंदे
मदहोश सा मौसम

घने काले बादल
जैसे किसी गहरी सोच में

सब कुछ जैसे रुक सा गया है
पर मेरा चंचल मन

फुदक फुदक कर
मुझसे यह पूछ रहा है

यह बेपनाह ख़ुशी
बिना किसी वजह

क्या है ये
ऐसा पहले तो न था

हर छोटी ख़ुशी इतना तो नहीं हसाती थी
दिल इतना भी बच्चा तो न था

प्यार तो पहले भी किया था
इस एहसास से अनजान तो नहीं था

कोई समझाओ मुझे
कोई सुलझाओ इससे

Soaked in love


cool blowing air,

through your wavy hair,

dangling curls,

kissing your cheeks,

blushing red,

 they’ve turned,

smiles reach the eyes,

the touch of your hand,

calms me down,

kiddie love,

keeps growing,

stronger, madder, sillier,

thought I’d never ever,

feel this again,

never ever,

been so soaked in love



the wanderer

DSC_0278too quick he thought

exciting as much

leapt up, he did,

enthused, he got, 

alive, he felt,

new facets, he found

loved it, for a while,

repetitive, it became,

new, it wasn’t, no more,

to settle, wasn’t him,

stop seeking, he couldn’t

twists and turns, he loved

the journey, had to continue,

keep discovering, the mantra,

keep moving, he did. 

Wanderer he was!






natural, free and gay abandon, 

meaning no harm,

yet, questioned, 

clouded does it all become,

a haze descends,

murky it all turns,

right or wrong

is inane, 

gasp we all do

grapple, fumble, losing our way, 

this is where

I think faith sees us through! 


Keep moving

That has to be the mantra of life for me, I just cannot stay put in the same routine at all. Ever since I took up an office, I have kind of become monotonous atleast from Monday to Friday and whilst when I started first up I was pretty enthused but now that the newness of it is all out of the way I just cant stay steady. The urge to go away from all routines is really starting to kick up more and more with each passing day.

The other thing is that to advance plan your breaks means the whole excitement bit is gone, you know its done and you have to just wait and whilst you wait you must work coz that is where the money comes to travel, sigh. Every time I read that cliched quote, “If travel were more you’d never see me again” the more I can connect to it.

I end up browsing old photos from trips done and the more I see them the more I want to wander again. Alas this growing into a responsible man bit is boring I tell you and a pretty hard task as well.

Whenever I rant, everyone I know comes back at me and tells me you have just been on a holiday two months back and I am like!? So what? Didnt you eat roti in lunch yesterday? Why do you need it today!?

Anyways this rant will keep on going, thankfully I have managed to convince all who are concerned to sneak away atleast for a small weekend away from work and routine and I am glad! 😀


D for Division

Math is really not my forte and so I would refrain from going on writing about the formula’s not even sure you call it a formula or what?!


Now that I have D for Division to write about I wonder what should I go on about, but once an exercise is taken upon you have to go ahead and accomplish the task.


If you ask me that is one of the worst words as far as the human race is concerned, when I think of Division beyond math the first thing that comes to my mind is religion, what has it done apart from dividing us? I am a rational and I would not mind hearing contrary opinions from my readers.

Open up, speak, discuss, find out faults with your religion. Is it necessary at all? Apart from tagging us what else has it done!? Don't close your doors to logic!

Honestly, in my opinion, religion has done nothing else but divide us, out of insecurity in ages when humans were a lot more barbaric we wanted more numbers on our side to survive and hence we sided with those so called similar religion fellows. Great philosophers over a period of time who are now revered as God’s actually showed a way of life, more than showing that way of life, they lived their lives as an example of what they meant, now instead of actually trying to emulate that life, somehow the followers, who I think found it difficult to emulate decided that they wanted to set up some rituals and those who follow those symbolic rituals would be called religious people.


The worst thing about religious people and believers of God is they will not discuss or argue a point beyond a certain extent, because they cannot reason and because since our childhood we all are conditioned to believe in something somewhere the ability to question or reason has gone out of the window.


Someone please throw some light and tell me apart from creating divisions what has religion done for us? I am a Muslim and you are a Jew, apart from it what is its role? Ghettoism perhaps would be an apt synonym wouldn’t it?



Randomness rules

For a change I have been working hard, avoiding distractions and focussing on work, that though is now a passe, it was the past fortnight, now that I have achieved some success the easy go lucky guy in me is back in action. Sigh… only if I had some more appetite for success, somewhat like the space I can make when I see delicious food coming my way. Its quite amazing how my body can actually take in all those quantities and thankfully not bloat or explode!!


The month of December is bad that way, way too many parties and weddings and everywhere you kind of find one or the other food item that gets you drooling and salivating and then you indulge and then err.. geez food just makes me digress, lets stop the food topic for a while.


I  came to the blog to write something about the new movie released yesterday which I have not seen so far, Baji Rao Mastani, I am not a Sanjay Leela Bhansali fan, for long I have believed he packs mundane stories in sort of grand gift wrap papers, where in the gift wrapper is more beautiful than the actual gift. I till AIB Roast of Ranveer happened could not even stand him, now am actually looking forward to seeing him. The guy is cool, the guy is actually enviable, perhaps that is why that dislike was there. I am actually wanting to watch a SLB movie that is featuring Ranveer Singh and no, I am not wanting to watch it just for Deepika, mind it! The movie has a story and since I actually googled Baji Rao Peshwa and his story I was feeling kinda ashamed that I knew so little about perhaps one of the greatest warrior’s in India’s history.


I wonder why our history books showed so little of him or taught us so little, though I must confess as I live longer I always feel our school history books taught us very little, thank God for Amar Chitra Katha’s which actually in someways helped satiate my fascination for historical characters. I don’t think there is anything more fascinating than reading history or hearing stories about it. Be it the Alan Turing story in The Imitation Games or reading about the Bangladeshi turmoil and their liberation from Pakistan  history in more ways than one makes you wonder about human behaviour and always questions your conclusions about certain things. I am a complete student of history and will keep on reading more and more and hope to learn more and more about this world of ours, in many ways history tells you why we are, how we are!



अजीब (strange)


लकीरो में लिखी है सारी दास्तान
पर क्या हम इन्हे कभी समझ सकेंगे

वैसे तो हम चांद तक पहोच गये
पर अपने आस पास ही देख ना सके

मिलोन दूर का ही हमेशा सोचा
अप्नो की ही कभी सून ना सके

अजीब सी ये रीत है इस जहान की
जो नही है उस्की क्यो खोज में उलझी है…

जो है उसमे क्यो खुश नही है…
अजीब सी है ये ज़िन्दगी
