               Dदोस्तों ने मुझे जीवन में कई बार सम्भाला है | खुशी हो या ग़म, कोई भी पल दोस्तों के बिना ख़ास नहीं बन सकता | मैं बहुत खुशकिस्मत रहा हूँ कि जीवन के हर मोड़ पर मुझे बेहतरीन दोस्तों का साथ मिला है | ये वो एहसास है है जिसे चन्द लफ़्ज़ों में कह पाना मुश्किल है लेकिन अगर मैं अपने दोस्तों की शान में कुछ न कहूँ को मेरा लिखना ही जैसे व्यर्थ होगा…

कहते  हैं, अच्छे  दोस्त  यूँ  ही  नहीं  मिला  करते,

पर  उसने  ये  दामन, कुछ  इस  तरह  सजाया  है ,

के  हर  मोड़  पर  मिले  नायाब  दोस्त,

और  हर  एक  में  जैसे,  वो  ख़ुद  ही  समाया  है,

थामा  है  इन्होंने  काँपते  मेरे  हाथों  को,

और  ग़म  में  भी  हँसना  सिखाया  है,

हों  ख़ुशियों  के  उजाले, या   गमगीन  अंधेरी  रात,

मुस्कान  ने  इनकी, हर  पल  साथ  निभाया  है,

के  साहिलों  के  एकांत  से  गुफ्तगू  की  कभी ,

तो  कभी  यारों  संग,  मझधार  में  भी  घर  बनाया  है,

न  कस्में  हैं न वादे  हैं, क्या  ख़ूबसूरत  ये  रिश्ता  बनाया  है,

के लहू से  न सही,  पर  उसने  दिल से  हमें मिलाया  है,

सदके  जाऊं  इन  यारों  की  यारी  पे,

जिन्होनें  काली  घटाओं  को  भी , इंद्रधनुष सा  सजाया  है,

इंद्रधनुष सा सजाया है ||

क्या आपका भी कोई ऐसा दोस्त है जिसके साथ आप ये कविता बाँटना चाहेंगे  ?

The  fun, laughter  and  small  talks,

The  road  trips  and  late  night  walks,

You  gave  meaning  to  everything  I  knew,

Rejuvenated  my  life,

Wanting  nothing  in  lieu,

With  you, my  life  is  like  a  grand  fest,

You  are  my  buddies, you  are  the  best…

Gift a book this Christmas

15-National-Book-Store-Items-Thatll-Make-Perfect-Christmas-Gifts

It’s the time of the year to get cozy in your fluffy blankets near simmering fireplaces with a cup of ginger tea in one hand and your favorite book in the other. I am not a psychic but I am sure this is how you would want your holidays to be. Yes, Christmas is round the corner and festivities are about to begin. With the temperatures dropping below usual and winter break on the calendar, isn’t it the best time for book-nerds and bloggers to grab a book and sink in?

Logo-2017We-lose-ourselves-in-books-We-find-ourselves-there-too-Anonymous-book-quote-540x767

 

Why not just do it? And let’s rope others in too. Here’s the deal:Let’s gift a book to your loved ones this Christmas and spread some love. Well, I am promoting my own book but let’s not get selfish here and try n do something for the greater good (thumbs up if you caught the harry potter reference).

A book is a gift you can open again and again.

So, here I am calling all book-nerds to gift a book this season to your loved ones, family, friends, colleagues, and even your boss. I personally think that this loved one may be you yourself. Why not gift a book to yourself? I have been doing that for long and I always love my choice. It’s a win-win.

Something about my book man मन मन्थन: It is a perfect gift for all ages. You may share your own feelings with just a reference to a poem in the book. Why not put a book mark or a personalized note on the page you want him/her to read and voila. Be it romance, life, motivation, spirituality, feminism, festive mood, or even haiku, you just name it and you have it here. I am sure you will find something to connect with you.

                 There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live life to the fullest. They balance our tipsy-turvy lives, add a bit of tang and fun, offer a shoulder to cry and most of all, keep the party going. They are the wonderful, the shining and everlasting FRIENDS. Friendship marks our life even more deeply than love. Love may sometimes degenerate into obsession but friendship is never anything but sharing. Sharing love, time, smiles, grief and anything to everything. We may find a friend in our soul mate, kids, parents, colleagues or even boss. What matters is that you find one. And I have been lucky enough to have met wonderful friends almost everywhere I happen to be.

                It has been too long to remember when we actually came close but one thing is certain that it was destined to happen. It may have happened when we shared our tiffins in class 3, when we played classroom cricket in class 8, went movies together in class 12, fought for each other, stayed up all night for studying, those 12am birthdays, 4am walks and tea, our marriages, and now even kids. I don’t exactly remember when we became BFFs from just friends but I am glad we did. I have been friends with my schoolmates since class 3 and collegemates from 2003 and now they are a part of every small or big event by default.

                 As much as I adore friendship I love anything that celebrates it. Movies and TV have been a rock-star in this celebration. I loved the movies Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which showed us the other side of friendship. Harry Potter series is another one that I love for reasons more than just celebrating friendship but I’ll keep it for another post. Another such series is about to start today on Zee TV. For the first time on Indian television, a fun-filled chat show Vivo Smartphone presents Yaaron Ki Baraat (http://www.ozee.com/shows/yaaron-ki-baraat) co-powered by Amazon.in and Brooke Bond Red Label will put celebrity friendships to test through a series of fun challenges and tasks. Isn’t it great!! Celebrating real life bonds of our reel life stars on our very own silver screens in the comfort zones of our drawing rooms.

The  fun, laughter  and  small  talks,

The  road  trips  and  late  night  walks,

You  gave  meaning  to  everything  I  knew,

Rejuvenated  my  life,

Wanting  nothing  in  lieu,

With  you, my  life  is  like  a  grand  fest,

You  are  my  buddies, you  are  the  best…

                                                                      -doc2poet

                 This is going to be a grand show with celebrity overdose and a laugh riot with Ritesh Deshmukh & Sajid Khan as hosts.  The first stars to feature on the show are none other than the greatest of greats BigB himself and the tough guy Shatrugan Sinha. Don’t miss the show tonight at 8:00 PM on Zee TV. Visit here http://www.ozee.com/shows/yaaron-ki-baraat if you want to know more about the show. Be happy and mount the fan wagon for the show. See you tonight 🙂

To all my awesome friends,

          Friends are the best thing that can happen to anyone. They balance our tipsy-turvy lives, add a bit of tang and fun, offer a shoulder to cry and most of all, keeps the party going. Friends come in all shapes and sizes and you may call them with different names, be it amigos, बंधु, मित्र or anything else but each one has a vital role to play. As they say it “हर  एक  friend  ज़रूरी  होता  है”.

कहते  हैं…अच्छे  दोस्त  यूँ  ही  नहीं  मिला  करते ,

पर  उसने  ये  दामन…कुछ  इस  तरह  सजाया  है ;

के  हर  मोड़  पर  मिले  नायाब  दोस्त ,

और  हर  एक  में  जैसे…वो  ख़ुद  ही  समाया  है ||

                    Yes, I have been lucky enough to have met wonderful friends almost everywhere I went and it is tougher than I can imagine naming just one. But adding the oldest clause narrows it down to only two; my best and oldest  buddies @Nikhil and @Prannoy or as we like to call ourselves…’Boogies’. I’ve known them before I knew friendship. In fact,  we have been together since class four and still catch up with each other on weekends or more often than that.  There’s no way how I can put to words the feeling of being able to stick together despite our different paths and professions. You are awesome guys 🙂

के  इनसे  ही  दोस्ती  की  पहचान  है,

तकल्लुफ   नहीं, कोई  राज़  नहीं,

                 Time is not the only way to look at the word oldest, sometimes the bond feels to have been made in heaven, a bond beyond time. I met these gems during my graduation and they just redefined friendship for me. It’s been 13 years and counting but it feels fresh like yesterday and ripe like eternity. Thank you @Harsh @Neeraj, @Shalini, @Ginni , @Mansi, @Vikas, @Mukesh, @Kanchan.

एक जाम यारों के नाम: #BFF

Indian Bloggers

I know it’s not friendship day but that’s the beauty of friendship, you don’t need an occasion to celebrate. With so many memories to cherish, you can never be alone (even when your wife’s off to enjoy vacations with your in-laws). I hope you find your buddies in these words. Three cheers to all my friends out there and special thanks to my amazing blog buddies, thank you all for connecting. 🙂
