Ghazal:- Kitabe-khayal mein likha hai

Kitabe-khayal mein likha hai,
Kisiko dekh ke humnein,
Kuch alfaazon ko piroya hai,
Kitabe-khayal mein humnein,

1):- Na jane dil kyun ye zid kiye baitha hai,
Ke ab to bus vo aaye idhar ka rukh kiye,
Kuch armaanon ko zindagi bakshi hai,
Kitabe-khayal mein humnein

2):- Phirse jhoomne gaane ka mann karta hai,
Phirse tamannayein panapne lagi hain,
Shayad ye ishq hai, aisa likah hai,
Kitabe-khayal mein humnein.

Song:- Kitne guzre hue kal

Kitne guzre hue kal hain,

Kitne guzre hue kal hain,
jo aaj tak beete nahin,
Kitni khamosh hasratein hain,
Jo hamesha dabi rahi dil hi mein.

1): Kuch laphz jo sisakte rahe mann mein, subakte rahe dil mein,
Ik umr se hain vo zubaan se marhoom,
Kaash mil jaati zubaan unhein,
To ye guzre hue kal beet jaate ,
Jo aaj tak beete nahin.

2):Kuch savaal jo zubaan tak ka safar na kar sake taey,
kuch savaal jo hamesha dare rahe anjaam se,
Karte rahe vo mann hi mein ibaadat,
Kaash na darte vo anjaam se,
To ye khwab adhoore na hote,
Jo aaj tak poore nahin?

Song:- Ye nakaam koshish kar raha hu mein

Ye nakaam koshish kar raha hu mein, mein jaanta hu

Ye nakaam koshish kar raha hu mein, mein jaanta hu,
Magar ye sapna hai mera,
Sapna poora ho na ho,
Par use poora karne ka sapna deha hai maine,
Sapno mein nahin jeeta hoon mein,
Magar haan ek sapna dekha hai maine,
Ek sapne ko poora karne ka sapna dekhta hu mein,
Mein vaakif hoon is baat se,
Ki ye mehaz ek sapna hai,
Magar is sapne ko,
Poori tarah jeena chahta hoon mein,
Ek baar bus ek baar,
Bata dena chahta hoon,
Ek baar jhoot saabit karna chahta hoon is baat ko,
Ki sapne to fir sapne hote hain,
Sach hai ye kab apne hote hain,
Bus yahi ek sapna hai mera,
Ki sapne bhi sach hote hain,
haan maine ye sapna dekha hai,
Sapne ko hakeeqat karne ka?

Nazm:- Tum yaad na aao kabhi

Tum yaad na aao kabhi

Tum yaad na aao kabhi,
Kya aisa ho sakta hai,
Ye sochta hu mein aksar,
Baitha tanhayiyon mein.....
Jaanta hu ye mumkin nahin,
Mera dil ye jaanta hai,
Magar is khayal ko jeena chahta hai,
Ye iska ek sapna hai,
Ye duniyan haqeekat hai,
Tum bhi ek insaan ho,
Magar bhoolta kyun nahin ise vo..............
Vo roz school jana,
Cchutti ke din udas hona,
Vo baarishon mein bheegna,
Ghar der se aana,
Har waqt dooston mein rehna,
Vo ladna-jhagadna,
Vo abbu ka daantna,
Ma ka dularna,
Vo raaton ko neend na aana,
Sardi mein letter likhna,
Vo din ka haath se fisalna,
Vo raat na beetna,
Vo phoot ke roona,
Dil khol ke hasna,
Vo fail hona aur,
Ghar se bhaagna,
Vo punishment milna,
Aur uske saamne sharmana,
Vo chupna-chupana,
Nazron ka takrana,
Vo mandir jaana,
Aur use maangna,
Vo raaton ko gazlein sunna,
Vo sabka milna,
Aur fir doost banna,
Vo bhi din they har pal mein zindagi thi,
Aaj zindagi ke liye waqt nahin hai,
Aankhein taras gayi hain aansuon ko,
Ek umr se dil khol ke hase nahin,
Par zinda rehna padega yahan,
Kyunki isi ka naam zindagi hai..........................

Song:- Tera intazaar

Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar,

Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar
Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar............
yaara mere door hai kyun,
karta hu mein tera intazaar,
Barson se hu bekaraar,
Karta hu tera intazaar...

1):- Din guzra raat dhali,
Zindagi ret si beh chali,
Na jaane tu kab aayega,
Saans bhi madhham ho chali,
Barson se hu bekaraar,
Karta hu tera intazaar...

2):- Kat ta nahin ab safar tere bin,
Lagta hai soona ye jahan,
Sab hain mere saath magar,
Hu sabse akela bus ek mein,
Barson se hu bekaraar,
Karta hu tera intazaar...
Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar,
Tera intazaar, Tera intazaar............

Song:- A tribute to the Mumbai blast victims

A tribute to the Mumbai blast victims:-

Maula, Maula, Maula, Maula......
Maula, Maula, Maula, Maula......
Tera banda tadap raha hai,
Teri kudrat bikhar rahi hai,
Kahan chhupa hai tu maula,
kuch to apni khabar de.

1):- Is kadar to na thi ye duniya,
Kyun insaan ka ye haal hua,
Kyun hain nafratein dil mein,
Kyun insaan ka dil tang hua,
Kahan chhupa hai tu maula,
kuch to apni khabar de.

2):- Kya shikayat hai unhein,
Jo ye aag sulgate hain,
Apna ghar chalane ki khaatir,
Auron ka ghar jalate hain,
Hain vo is baat se behabar,
Ke kudrat ki fehrisat mein,
Unka bhi kuch hisaab hai,
Kyun jaante hue bhi ye log,
Tere nizaam se khelte hain,
Kahan chhupa hai tu maula,
kuch to apni khabar de.

3):- Kyun aankhon mein hai lahoo,
Kyun hain chehre sehme hue,
Usi ki duniyan ujaadne ko,
Alaah ka hai naam liya,
Kyun khet banzar hain,
Kyun ye galiyan veeraan hain,
Ab to aaja mere maula,
Ye duniyan kahin aur chali,
Ab to aaja mere maula,
Ye duniyan kahin aur chali,
Ab to aaja mere maula,
Ye duniyan kahin aur chali,
Maula, Maula, Maula, Maula......
Maula, Maula, Maula, Maula......

Blog:- The youth machine

The youth machine

A person can utilize his potential to its fullest at the time of his youth and it has been proved by a youthful leader – Rahul Gandhi – a name which makes a difference today, the “credit card” holder of the Congress' success in the Lok Sabha elections.

The dust of election battle has now settled down and Rahul emerged as a victorious prince. This guy keeping a profile and act like a common man emerged as the campaigner-in-chief in the elections.

This man, a product of Harvard, Rollins, Trinity and Cambridge has used his knowledge of philosophical management, to manage the understanding and co-operation among the co-workers and the fellow-politicians. He prepared a youth brigade for campaigning, which was filled with a youthful spirit.

The youth brigade led by Rahul Gandhi worked round the clock. They captured all the remote areas and targeted big states like UP and Bihar. The brigade reached out to each and every person inspite of their caste, colour, status and creed. They listened to the problems and difficulties faced by the public.

The strategy which worked the most was the interaction with the public. As its truly said: “Hard work bears the fruit of success.” The “strategic mastermind” behind the huge success of the Congress along with his youth-force reached the interior/remote areas on foot.

This simple and sober looking guy must have followed this one line “speak through your actions and never through arguments”. Congress's youth-force not only captured the minds but also the hearts of the citizens.

The passion and planning of the youth along with the experience of the aged one's was the key to its success.

Rahul Gandhi – a believer in the immense power of the rural India, has around 9000 active workers across the Country. These workers were trained and guided by management trainers from Mumbai and abroad – on how to reach out to people.

Rahul and his youth network is methodical, analytical and sincere. He has proved everyone wrong whosoever thought that young Indians are allergic to the politics and change.

Roughly estimated now in the 5.5 lakh panchayats around 70% of the elected representatives are not more than 35. India is hailing towards a new century of change and the youths are avidly working as the agents of change for a better and brighter India.

Nation's termite or nation runners

It was an usual evening and my mind was flooded with so many questions.
With the elections getting over, I was left wondering about our politicians whom we chose to lead us and fight for us. The baton bearers whom we trust have become the law breakers.

The promises they make has only become a mere lip-service. The development of a few areas happen only when any government is about to degrade/fade or only a few months after a new government comes into power.

They are called public servants but they only serve their families and themselves. Most of them are using politics as a springboard to be a millionaire within a short span of time. Murderers, kidnappers, rapists all have found an easy escape to any problem by joining politics.

The convicts of riots, culprits of 30 and more criminal cases each, scams of billions, people having billions and millions in Swiss accounts are our leaders. whom do we cast our vote to? To these people who have lost all their conscience?

It is better not to caste vote rather than casting our vote to a criminal. There should be a certain criteria, a certain educational qualification to enter politics. People are dying of hunger and these people have billions in their Swiss accounts. Educated youth should arise and replace these illiterate politicians who cannot even have a debate on public issues properly.

Like the IIT and IIM students, who take the initiative to join politics, intellectuals from other fields should also come. Apart from that any person having a criminal record should be barred to contest elections.

Now is the time to realize the value of our vote. Stand up against the evil and take a solemn vow to cast your vote to a right person.

Countries like Japan got freedom after India and today Japan stands amongst the strongest economy, developed and prosperous nations. This is not only due to the reason that their leaders or politicians are worthy and honest, but it is the equal participation of the citizens of Japan which made this possible. They are aware of their rights; they know how to stand in 'unison' in tough times.

We cannot wholly blame a bunch of people for everything negative or bad. Participation of each citizen is vital in the formation of a nation. A 'stand alone spirit' is must. Mahatma Gandhi once said – you must be the change if you want to see in the world – and I believe, this is the change we need towards a better tomorrow.

Blog:- …and the legend rejoices in heaven

…and the legend rejoices in heaven

June 25, 2009 – a usual day it was. But nothing remained ‘usual’ about it as it carried along the news of the sudden demise of the music sensation, Michael Jackson. I was rushing to my office unaware of the word that had by then shook almost more than a half of the world.

As I reached office, I saw all the news channels, websites and newspapers flooded with the biggest news of the day – the news that shattered and pained the millions and billions of those who loved and hated the all time favorite musician Michael Jackson – for their own reasons. The earth underneath my feet almost slipped as I heard of the news. The world had lost the ‘King of Pop’ as they called him. I couldn’t somehow believe it to be true and kept on reading and surfing on more and more about the music icon.

How could one believe it…? The music sensation moon walking away so swiftly – away from us, to another world, even as the world did not have the slightest indication.

Websites crashed, people mourned and fans were seen setting up vigils in public parks and streets. Suddenly everyone wanted to know and discuss and read more and more about the celebrated star – the good and the bad things he was known for – his music, his concerts, his life, his family, his controversies and what not. Such was the craze and such was the name of the pop icon – MJ – a brand.

And now an era of the ''fire of music'' ends with him, as he leaves the cosmos to mourn. The world would never forget the multi-faceted personality. His precious contributions to music altogether set up new trends; and made pop music discover heights that were never-ever achieved.

A composer, producer, entertainer, choreographer, singer, songwriter, author, dancer, businessman and philanthropist – Jackson was truly an icon. What more can a person achieve in a single lifetime?

Defeating all the ups and downs of the life, he remained dedicated to music.
As a child, Jackson was physically and emotionally abused by his father. Jackson had reportedly once said that owing to the ill-treatment by his own father, he had suffered nightmares for a long time.

Controversies and MJ shared a bond seemingly – a bond that kept him the tabloid favorite, throughout his life. His life remained a “storehouse of controversies” including the “child sexual abuse case”, “his marriage”, “his surgeries”, “drug addiction”, “his changing appearances”, “bizarre behaviour” and “his illness”.

The legend while on one hand has now left behind a diehard fan following after him; there are critics on the other hand for whom Jackson was a man of illicit activities. While for some he was a legend, for others he was a subject of extreme hatred, envy and criticism.

For some he was a winner – a victor whose achievements are not easily describable. For others, he still remains a subject of hate and anger.

The issue is not whether he was good or bad, the discussion is nowhere aimed at deciding whether to love or to hate MJ. It is about just remembering a talent, that’s it. At least, I find it as simple as that. While thinking about MJ for the past few days, I often end up thinking: Do the common people don't have negativities? Don’t we do wrongs in our lives? Are people in our society so pious? But just because we or for that matter every other person around us isn’t that popular, our deeds don’t get highlighted. In fact not just the commoner, see around and you’ll find many such faces mocking at the other for their wrong doings and taking immense pride knowing that they would never fall in a trap. And for a person like Michael Jackson, one has to pay the price for success and popularity.

For how many reasons would one hate him? For how long one will not praise him and keep ignoring the good things he did? How would one not love him? And no matter how much whosoever wants to hate him, every time his talent, struggle and achievements will overshadow the hatred. They will find two or three reasons not to love him and hundred more reasons to love him.

No one could ever forget a transformer who transformed the music video from a promotional tool into an art form, made popular a number of physically complicated dance techniques such as the 'robot' and the 'moonwalk' and the world followed him and loved his music.

His albums dominated the charts for years. He secured the highest royalty rate in 1980 in music industry. Millions of dollars donated by him helped people to overcome drug abuse and alcohol. He helped underprivileged children and made them achieve what they would have otherwise just longed for.

I wear my heart on my sleeves to stand by the side of MJ – no matter whosoever criticises me. It seems that MJ was “high on the hogs” but that all came from graveyard shifts, beads of sweat and blood, sleepless nights, years of learning and struggling.

To believe or not it's obvious that no one will ever see him again. Now he is on an everlasting and never-ending rendezvous with the Yama. Let him dwell in his new abode. A royal salute to the great music-healer and music-bellwether of all times!
