Aisi jannat ka kya karen GHALIB.

Na bazm apni, na saaqi apna, na shishaa apna, na jaam apna;
Agar yahi hai nizaam-i-hasti to GALIB, zindagi ko salam apna.

(Ame jaaniye chhiye ke tame amaarathi bedhyaan nahi thaav, parantu jyaare tamne amaara vishe khabar padshe tya shudhi to ame mari chukyaa hoi shu) one of the best couplet by Mirza Ghalib.

subah hoti hai shaam hoti hai

umr yu hi tamaam hoti hai

(savaar thay chhe saanj thay chhe, jivan emj pasaar thai jaye chhe)

जज्बा-ए-बे-इख्तियारी-ए-शौक देखा चाहिये

सीना-ए-शमशीर से बाहर है दम शमशीर का

दोनों जहान दे के, वह समझे, यह ख़ुश रहा
याँ आ पड़ी यह शर्म , कि तकरार क्या करें

थक थक के, हर मक़ाम पे दो चार रह गये
तेरा पता न पायें , तो नाचार क्या करें

क्या शम्'अ के नहीं हैं हवा ख़्वाह अहल-ए-बज़्म
हो ग़म ही जाँ गुदाज़, तो ग़मख़्वार क्या करें

नाचार - मजबूर
हवा ख़्वाह/ ग़मख़्वार - हमदर्द, मित्र
जाँ गुदाज़ - जानलेवा

Will you...

Will you reach me if I was distant,

If I get closer would you know I m nearer..

You watch me and say aloud to the masses,

While I know that was meant it for me...

A heart sways to a call but a senses reminding of wounds and pains of scars in await. .

If I come closer I seek not a distance,

If parting is in writing I sway not to your lands Rather stay here and watch you thou afar yet feel you nearer.

A bleeding heart can take no more… Continue

You and I

A moment of happiness,

you and I sitting on the verandah,

apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.

We feel the flowing water of life here,

you and I, with the garden's beauty

and the birds singing.

The stars will be watching us,

and we will show them

what it is to be a thin crescent moon.

You and I unselfed, will be together,

indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.

The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar

as we laugh… Continue

नाते शतकांचे, खऱ्या प्रेमाचे...

होऊन थेम्ब नभ तो बरसला, आतुरल्या धरणीच्या मिठीत विसावला!

झेपावला तो वेडा प्रेमी साऱ्या सुष्टीच्या साक्षीने, त्याच्यासाठी आसुसलेल्या धरणीच्या दिशेने!

शतजन्मीची गाठ ही धरणी अन नभाची, तुलना नाही दुसरी ह्या खऱ्या प्रेमाची!

शतके गेली अनेक, झाल्या अनेक कथा प्रेमाच्या,

नाही कुठेही तोड, मिलनाला धरणी अन नभाच्या!

देऊन ह्या मिलनाला साक्ष, हसली सारी सृष्टी, देवही हसला पाहून ही…

A Confession

Posted by Chandra Bhanu Gupta on October 11, 2017 at 5:06am 0 Comments

There are millions and millions of people in this world who do more work than me everyday. That also they do to earn their living, and possibly not always out of sheer joy and happiness. One has to be fortunate enough to get some work everyday which he can do out of sheer joy and happiness.

My job is to bring new hope for people whom I come across daily, however small it may be. Number of people I come across daily are getting lesser and lesser, as I am getting older. If I fill up…

After a gap of two years, I am willing to write the blog once again. I have experienced my 2nd phase of life: - 5 years of College life; My 5 years that will remain with me longlife.The 1st phase (School Phase) was quite good. Some of them were my GOLDEN DAYS of life which i won't forget forever. Some school days were really the one which i missed while living every moment…

Tears is all I have,

Nothing exclusive...

A heart that beats and a warmth of arms,

A Sparrow who's nest awaits an arrival from a distant land..

Would you nest by me I ask,

Would you love me as an ocean..

Would you let me lean on your shoulders,

Would you hear my silence..

I cry thou broken but you make me strong,

I run to you in my dreams...

Feel you right here,

Hold your hands not to let go...

I may fight with the… Continue

With you...

With you is the journey I begin today,

A comfort zone a secure cover...

See you there and proud that you're by me,

And I say here...

Miss you yet never express,

As long as I have you I fear no shadows as I know you watch over me...

Today I say aloud I m in love to the right one,

That who s like me...

Hey I wanna say I love you...

Thank you for your love in a silence,

That suffice I ve no qualms no more do I seek..

This will… Continue

' ખાલી શકુંતલાની આંગળી'

" ઝૂકેલી ડાળખીનો લીલો વળાંક લઈ એવું તો મનભરી ગાતો,
જંગલમાં ધોધમાર વરસે ગુલમ્હોર! ક્યાંક કાગડો થઈ ન જાય રાતો.
આજ મારી ફૂંકમાં એવો ઉમંગ સખી, સૂર થઈ ઊડી જાય વાંસળી,
કેમ સખી ચીંધવો પવનને રે હું તો ખાલી શકુંતલાની આંગળી."

All our lives we have looked
into each other's faces.
That was the case today too.

How do we keep our love- secret?
We speak from brow to brow
and hear with our eyes.
