यादों के सिक्के

देखो ये कुछ सिक्के हैं
तुम्हारी यादों के।
बिखरे हुए
खनकते हुए
कुछ पुराने हैे
कुछ चमकते हुए

कही खर्च ना हो जाये ये
डरता हूँ टटोलनेे से पहलेे
बस खनखनाहट ही सुन लेता हूँ
हर रात सोने से पहले

एक बटुआ तुम्हारा भी तो था
तुमने यादों के सिक्के सजाये होंगेे
जाने उससे  नए ख्वाब ख़रीदे हैे
या मेरी तरह तुमने भी बचाए होंगे
यादों के वो सिक्के।

Your Hero

I remember how I got angry and didn’t talk to you for days when you said you loved me but can’t leave your parents for me. I remember, while we were in school, how I hated your father when we saw him standing at the gate waiting for you, because I could not walk you home. I remember how he stared at me while I wandered about your house and you peeped through your window. I loved you but I didn’t like him. But today when he is in hospital, fighting against his own unfunctional heart, I see your swollen eyes. Haven’t you got his face? I can’t do anything to wipe your tears. But I have understood his importance in your life. I was so mistaken I thought I could be a substitute for him. I can never be. I know your dad is your first hero, like my mom is my first love. I promise my baby, I will never ask now who among us do you love more. Your love for your father is not replaceable. While I hug you today and say everything will be okay, I make a promise to myself that I will win your father’s heart for you. While I see him breathing through oxygen mask, I pray he gets up soon and stares at me again. I hope this time I will be able to look into his eyes to see his love for you. Did I say you have got his eyes too?

आज बरबस पीछे मुड के देखा तो कुछ अजीब सा लगा। देखो ना जिन्दगी कैसे भागी चली जा रही है। तुम्हे मेरी जिंदगी में आये 15 साल हो  गए।े गए हुए भी तो 3साल होने को हैं। रोज रोज जीने में पता ही नहीं चलता कितना कुछ बदलता जाता है। मगर कुछ है जो अब भी नहीं बदला। पूरी आस्तीन की शर्ट पहन के जब ऑफिस जाने को तैयार होता हूँ तभी कुछ याद आ जाता है और हौले से मुस्कुरा के आधी आस्तीन मोड़ लेता हूँ। कभी कभी रात को नींद खुलती है तो कूलर के शोर में दबी आवाज में बात करना याद आ जाता है। उतने तो आसमान में तारे भी नही होंगे जितनी बार 12 सालों में “आई लव यू” कहा  है मैंने तुमसे। लोग प्यार में हार के एमिनेम को सुनने लगते हैं। मैं तो आज भी सोनू निगम को सुनते हुए धीरे से गुनगुना लेता हूँ। पूराने दोस्त कभी कभी छेड़ देते हैं तुम्हारा नाम ले के। तब जो लाली आती है चेहरे पे वो जब स्कूल के गेट पर मैंने तुम्हारा हाथ पकड़ा था तब भी नही आई थी। शाम को जरुर उदास हो जाता हूँ अक्सर। तब लगता है की काश तुम अब भी होती। फिर शाहरुख़ खान की फिल्म का डायलॉग याद  कर के मुस्कुरा लेता हूँ जो तुम्हारी डायरी पर भी लिखा था, “याद रखना कि दुनिया के किसी कोने में कोई खुश है क्योकि तुम खुश हो”।

The Forgotten- II

“But what’s my fault?”, his eyes moistening, he tried hard to remain composed. “We both are at fault, you see. This maturity that has developed inside me says we are not compatible, atleast not anymore”
He broke down. He remained silent and let tears flow down. It seemed to disturb her, her face suddenly fell off.
“Look please don’t cry. It will make me feel guilty.”

The Forgotten- I

“Please think again, we can sort out the differences”, he looked in her big, deep eyes.. her eyes always drove him crazy, but today there were no emotions in them. “No, please don’t ask me to stay. I am just unable to handle this anymore”, she said staring straight at his face. He felt dizzy. This was coming all of a sudden. They had been together for last seven years. From class 8th to now 3rd year of graduation, they had always adored each other, and complemented each other. They had given a cute name to themselves, “arunita”. Arun and Aparajita.
“Baby, Arunita is still a perfect couple. Can’t we give some time and clear all the misunderstandings?”
“Look Arun, u have been dearest to me. I don’t hate u but nor do i feel same about u anymore. U have been lost in ur own world, and I have gradually lost all the feelings…”

इतने अच्छे क्यों लगते हो

इतने अच्छे क्यों लगते हो
कुछ और नहीं क्या दुनिया मेंं
तुम सबसे अच्छे क्यों लगते हो?

ये पर्दा चेहरे पर तुम्हारे
ख़ामोशी का है फिर भी
आँखों से इतनी बाते कहते
छोटे बच्चे क्यों लगते हो?

कह दो क्यों इतने प्यारे हो
कह दो सिर्फ हमारे हो
पर झूट नहीं तुम कह पाते
इतने सच्चे क्यों लगते हो?

Shit everywhere

Just read the interview of Abu azmi. After mulayam singh yadav he is the next one who is shitting through his mouth. What is happening in our country here? Where are we going? Do we really elect these people? These people go on speaking such irrational, illogical, stupid things and no one says anything. They are doing this for getting vote ofcourse. Never thought people can be so cheap and dirty. What they are saying today, i  am afraid they will do it tomorrow.
