Rui ka ek baksa, uski thi ek anokhee duniya,
Itne saare khwaabon ke saath,
Kahaan tha usko sukoon paana?
Kai raatein bechain, kai subahein betaab,
Kya koi sunta usse agar woh kuch kehta baje raat ke teen?

Ek din usne bhi rang apne dikhaaye,
Kho gaya jahan na pohoch sake nigaahein,
Har almaari, darwaaza, khidki kuch khaamosh,
Aakhir kahan tha mere chain ka waaris?
Jo aaraam dekar khud jaagta rehta?

Phir ek awaaz aayi bartan …

Around bags full of sand and sun going down,
A bunch of strangers who try to find their way out…

As I lay back on my cushioned chair,
That chain of thoughts not leaving my hair…

Clinking bottles, hollowness inside and smiles around,
Who would know what a smiling face contains?

A wish to run away to the waves and whisper my cry,
Request them to lead me to a favorable sky…

Of angels, peace …

That first splash of colors on the crisp white sheet,
Childhood rejoicing in the effortless drill,
Innocence driving the ambitious & pretty quill,
Let’s draw something we could simply write,

The plain pleasure of owning a piece of art,
Oh! you thing of a past…

Pair of eyes which inspire you,
Set of palms which bless you endlessly,
A warm embrace found in a cup,
The night which …

Haan kuch toh hoon, kahin toh hoon,
Aaj har woh mukaam par nahi, jo socha,
Par jahan gir kar uth saka, uth kar gir saka,
Har us unchaai ki aakhri eent ka pehlu sa,
Meri soch ke daayre se pare,
Jo mujhe thodi aur door le chala,
Jahaan aaj hoon, wahin kal bhi tha, thoda behtar,
Thoda sa sehma hua…

Har chehre ke peeche ek soch, har soch ke peeche ek chehra,
Meri umeedon ka …

Of all the beautiful things and people around,
Bringing so much depth to your thoughts,
Hassled, regretful and sometimes extremely happy,
That’s what it is all about, life, you the explorer,
Time shall tell, Time shall tell…

Every time you let those tears flow, somewhere a God feels dull,
Life full of gifted angels and packed surprise boxes,
And when you try to open, how they turn into Pandoras’,
Not to lose hope, firm to …
