Bahut Khoob Ho Gaye Ho

बहुत ख़ूब हो गए हो। (Bahut Khoob Ho Gaye Ho) Change in my sister's behavior after her engagement inspired me to write this Ghazal (poem). I have observed such changes in many other people and hope this will remind some of you of your courtship days.  जब से तुम किसी के मेहबूब हो गए हो, बहुत ख़ूब, बहुत ख़ूब, बहुत ख़ूब हो गए हो।  Jab Se Tum Kisi Ke Mehboob Ho Gaye Ho, Bahut Khoob, Bahut Khoob, Bahut Khoob Ho Gaye Ho. हर किसी से आँखें चुराना, न हाथ मिलाना, न बातें बनाना, बस एक शख़्स में हर वक़्त मसरूफ़ हो गए हो, बहुत ख़ूब, बहुत ख़ूब, बहुत ख़ूब हो गए हो।  Har Kisi Se Aankh Churana, Na Haath Milana, Na Batein Banana, Bas Ek Shaks Mein Har Waqt Masroof Ho Gaye Ho, Bahut Khoob, Bahut Khoob, Bahut Khoob Ho Gaye Ho. दिखते ही नहीं अब तो खुल के मुस्कुराते, सखियों संग बतियाते, अकेले बैठ फुसफुसाने में माहिर हो गए हो, बहुत ख़ूब, बहुत ख़ूब, बहुत ख़ूब हो गए हो।  Dikhte Hi Nahin Ab To Khul Ke Muskurate, Sakhiyon Sang Batiyate, Akele Baithe Fusfusane Mein Mahir H


Eid-al-Adha Eid-al-Adha or Eid-ul-Zuha honors the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son as an act of submission to God's command. This is celebration of his faith in Allah which didn't weaken even after provocation from Satan on the way. He firmly believed that Allah would do no harm to his son and that happened when his son replaced with a sheep. Happy Eid . millions gather in the holy city, follow the procedures of the prophet, hit stones to the greed with alacrity, displaying faith in Allah like the prophet, sacrificing bad in you and not just an animal, feeding hungry and caring the needy, detach from loved possession and not just an animal, come out from Satan's pity.  

A Small Home

A Small Home From life long toil, collecting brick, mortar, soil, I made a small strong home, with windows, doors and dome, faced every condition without any harm, stood unmoved in wind,rain,cold and warm, but within moments it broke apart, when love from it depart.  This Eight Liner is linked to Magpie Tales Mag #285.  

Two Minute Medley

Two Minute Medley #1 Here are few two-two minute poems covering different incidents happened in India and the world in recent times. इश्क़ की हवा चलाने वाला, अब हुआ इस दुनिया से बेगाना।  Ishq Ki Hawa Chalane Wala, Ab Hua Is Duniya Se Begana. ##### Drowned body, woke up everybody. ##### The leader who as almighty projected, all previous norms who has rejected, bowed to the family ( parivar) in similar fashion, continuing caste,religion,abuse based political tradition.   ##### बात-बात पर धमकाता है मेरा नादान पड़ोसी, कमज़ोरी नहीं है मेरी अमन पसंद ख़ामोशी।  Baat-Baat Par Dhamkata Hai Mera Nadan Padosi, Kamzori Nahin Hai Meri Aman Pasand Khamoshi. ##### Mother-Daughter-Sister-Father-Brother-Lover, Usually completes family and not mysterious murder. ##### Too much bad news I guess, here is one to lighten the mood: उफ़्फ़ तेरी ज़ुल्फ़ों का इस तरह लहराना, क्या नया कोई शैम्पू है बाज़ार में आना ?

Hai Guru Tujhe Pranam. - Salute To The Teacher.

हे गुरु तुझे प्रणाम। (Salute To The Teacher.) 5th September - the birthday of our second President Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan is celebrated as Teacher's Day in India to honor contribution of teacher's in our society. Teachers give directions to our life. They fills the empty slates of our mind with knowledge. A good teacher discovers the potential of his/her student and guides them towards their destination. Kabir 's doha rightly describes the status of a Teacher in a student's life: गुरु गोविंद दोनों खड़े, काके लागूं पाए, बलिहारी गुरु आपनो, गोविंद दियो मिलाए।  Guru Gobind Dono Khade, Kake Lagun Paye, Balihari Guru Aapno, Govind Diyo Milaye. Teacher and God both are there, to whom I praise, Salute to the teacher, helped in getting God's grace. My Hindi poem below is an extension of the above thought. It says that teacher taught us how to build a wall from mud, how to build a tool from iron and so on. It was teacher who made God to mere hu
