Hardest Goodbye

Lonely girl sitting alone
One day, you will understand,
Would realize why I did what I did,
Sometimes we meet the right people at the wrong times in our life;
Perfect ones that we only later realize,
If I get to choose, I would never want to lose you,
My heart breaks, when I look at you,
No matter how much I care or
how much I want to keep you safe,
I keep losing you,
The cruel time never changes its pace,
But you know that I know,
We have to go our separate ways,
With love for each other, to someone else’ embrace,
I wish, this moment just stops and forgets to pass by,
Coz I can’t see you going away,
You are my hardest goodbye…

Tere Jaane Ke Baad

जाने क्या क्या गुज़रती है दिल पे,
जब तुम आ जाती हो नज़रों के सामने,
कह भी नहीं पाते,
और बयान करने को अलफ़ाज़ नहीं मिलते,

तुम पे कोई हक़ भी नहीं,
ना ही तुम से कोई रिश्ता है,
पर जब तुम दूर जाती हो,
गुमसुम सा दिल लिए फिरते हैं,

अब ये आलम है की,
खुद का हाल पूछता हूँ,
तेरे आने से पहले और
तेरे जाने के बाद…

The Man

Being a man is making the choice between your happiness and the happiness of your loved ones and always choosing the latter. It is about not crying when your heart is broken. It is about being silent when you are hurt the most. It is about silently checking on the doors and windows if they are properly locked when everyone else is peacefully sleeping. It is about taking the last piece of the pie until everyone else is filled. It is about working hard everyday, taking all the stress of the job, bearing the all shit of boss and office politics just because you can’t afford risks. It is about checking upon family and calling and calling them until you know they have safely reached. In the end you would know that nobody will realize what pain you went through but it doesn’t matter as you didn’t do all that for recognition. When you will be done with the life and you are about to go, you would look back at your loved ones one last time to check if everyone is OK…because you are…THE MAN…


A metro compartment
ऐसे जो तुम्हारी नज़रें मुझ पे रुकी हैं,
और फिर मुझसे नज़रें मिलने पे इधर उधर देखने लगी हैं,
कुछ कहना है क्या इन्हे या बस ये ऐसे ही शरारती हैं,
छूने की जरुरत भी नहीं,
ये नज़रों की मोहब्बत है, इन्हे जिस्मों की जरुरत नहीं,
तुम बैठे रहो ऐसे ही,
इन लम्हों की खातिर, थोड़ी देरी ही सही,

फिर चली जाओगी तुम अपने रास्ते, बिना कुछ कहे,
और जो मेरी नज़रें तुम्हारे साथ चलने लगे,
अलविदा कहने,
मैं कुछ नहीं कहूंगा, तुम भी कुछ न कहना,
मुड़कर बस एक बार, मुस्कुराकर इस मुलाक़ात को यूँही इसी
हसीन मोड़ पर ख़त्म कर देना…
