Overjoyed is not Over-rated

May be

It does lie
In the small things

The 'joy'
As they say it does.

That famous japanese author...
Also says this

It lies in the most ordinary things.
In the utmost ordinary thing you can find.

Joy
Is not found

Anywhere in planning a 7 month long hectic travel schedule,

Joy
Is found

In explaining the actual meaning of 'rhythm' to a budding dancer

Who hopes.

Joy
Is not found

In procrastination
Neither in dreams cast of the day's fears built upon doing nothing
But procrastinating

Joy
Is found

In playing the guitar with a string less, a string which was never bought
To un-tie the 'string' otherwise.

Joy
Is Permanent

Like melody in the voice of 'Janelle Monae'

And crimson
Like the sunrise paintings
From the school art classes.

'May be..'

Joy is
All the hopeful may be's
and sometimes found

in the &

instead of the and.

Zindagi batiyati hai

zindagi batiyati hai kuchh kuchh

zindagi batiyati hai kuchh kuchh mujhse har roz..

main bhi auron ki tarah sota hun jaagta hun

roz subah aati hai tere khayal ke peeche se

teri yaadon ko raat ke bistare mein paata hun 

meri neendein us football ki tarah hain 

jo barson se khel khel kar phat chuki hai 

aur sirf almariyon ke neeche paayi jaati hai kabhi kabhi 

saat samandar paar rehne wali ek shayara, jo ab kuch kam likha karti hai 

mujhe uske "hone" ke khayal bhar se muhabbat hai 

mere aas paas yahan jo sheher basta hai 

wahan rehne waale roz apni zubaan badal lete hain...

chalo roz nahi, aaye din to badal hi lete hain...

main unki zubaan nahi bol paata hun.

zindagi batiyati hai kuchh kuchh...

benoor ujaalon mein aankhein chundhiyati to nahi 

bas aankhen kholne ko hi jee nahi chaahta 

haan monsoon aaye to baat alag hai 

hawayein kuch aur hain, roshni alag hai...jazbaat alag hain.. 

main monsoon mein bahut badbadaata hun!

zindagi batiyaati hai kuchh kuchh..

kalam ghisaayi ki daastaan to na hi poocho - behtar hai !!

'art' hai ye...bas uthao kalam aur de maaro chhentein kaghaz par 

be-sir pair...

jitna kaaghaz rang jaaye wo 'tajurba' hai 

jo bach jaaye use main 'nazm' batata hun 

khud hi likhta hun, khud hi padhta hun aur khud hi ko sunaata hun 

zindagi batiyaati hai mujhse....

zindagi batiyaati hai mujhse kuchh kuchh har roz...

Hairaaniyat kya kijiye

Hairaaniyat kya kijiye
Aur gham kya pjiye
Kya jaaniye kiskar hai guzari kiskar guzregi
Mehez taarekh ke badal jaane se
Tawareekh nahi badal jaati
Na hi anjaan raaston ke nakshe
 jaate hain sanwar
Jo tum ab ho to tum tab wo 
shayad bhul chuke hoge
Aur goonj rahe hoge kisi aur falak ke tale
Kahin alag khalaaon mein
Kisi door ke gaon mein
Tum kisaan bahaaron ke 
Tum afsananigaar ghamkhawaron ke
Tum bheed mein behke hue chehre bhi ho
Tum 'theek' hairat ke ru-ba-ru
zindagi se behre bhi ho
Phir bhi aakhir kyun??

Hairaaniyat kya kijiye
aur gham kya pijiye?
Kya jaaniye kis-kar hai guzari
Kis-kar guzregi??

Na sukhan se pehle

Na sukhan se pehle na aarzoo-e-mukmmal ke baad...
na baadalon ke peeche na kisi taare ke neeche...
na benoor andhere na wo roshan se dareechey...
na hi teri gali ki hadd se lagti sadak ke paar...
gar milega sukoon to bas Teri haami mein milega...
tab tak saraabon pe faqat howe ikhtiyaar

If ever


If there ever will be a rainbow
that is drawn at will
by the gleam in your eye...
If ever there are stars
that will burn in morning light
and the peopled dream
will begin calling
the sun a star...
if ever there comes a day
when catastrophe is at near
and the world is about to end...

look out for me then..

i will be darting my way...
running, to read my masterpiece to you.
