संगीत की झनकार हमारे चारों ओर है | ये मीठी सी गूँज चुपके-चुपके हमारे बेरंग जीवन में रंग भरती रहती है | यदि हम शाँत मन से सुनें तो हर ओर संगीत की यह गूँज सुनाई देगी…

बारिश की पहली फुहार,

चिड़ियों का गीत मल्हार,

के दरख़्तों की हरियाली में,

महकता कहीं मैं भी हूँ,

वन में होती हल-चल,

और बहता पानी कल-कल,

के असीम सागर की लहरों में,

छलकता कहीं मैं भी हूँ,

भीड़ में होता शोर,

और पतंग की कटती डोर,

के घड़ी के काँटों की इस रफ़्तार में,

थिरकता कहीं मैं भी हूँ,

बीते पल अनमोल,

दो प्यार के मीठे बोल,

के इन लबों पे खिलती हँसी में,

शामिल कहीं मैं भी हूँ,

गर सुन कोई सके,

तो गाती ख़ामोशी भी है यहाँ,

के इस कायनात के हर ज़र्रे को,

एक धुन में सजाता मैं ही हूँ,

संगीतमय बनाता मैं ही हूँ ||

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?

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.

दीपावली :#poem

FB_IMG_1446670818675

It is that time of the year again and this little one from my archive still holds true.

दीपावली के शुभ अवसर पर…


होकर  विजयी  प्रभु  राम  हैं  लौटे,

के  दीवाली  का  त्यौहार  यहाँ, 

आतिशबाज़ी  पर   है  रोक  लगी ,

पर  धुएँ  के   हैं  गुबार  यहाँ, 

खील-खिलौने  तो  याद  नहीं,

होड़  में  है  चरखी-अनार  यहाँ,

फ़ेसबुक  दुआओं  से  सुसज्जित  है,

पर  परिजनों  का  है  तिरस्कार  यहाँ,

हर  द्वारे  दीपक  जगमग  हैं,

पर  सड़कों  पर  मरता  कुम्हार  यहाँ,

लक्ष्मी  जी  का  पूजन  है,

पर  दहेज  प्रथा  की  मार  यहाँ, 

के  देसी  घी  के  लड्डू  हैं,

पर  खाकर  इन्हें  बीमार  यहाँ,

पकवानों  से  महकती  फ़िज़ा तो है ,

पर  भूखों  की   हैं  कतार  यहाँ,

ख़ूब  सजे  हैं  चौक-चौबारे,

हर  जेब  में  लेकिन  है उधार  यहाँ, 

दो  नावों  पर  सवार  हैं  सब,

और  जाने  गुम  पतवार  कहाँ,

के  हम  हैं, तुम  हो  और  दीपावली,

हर  गम  में  खुशियों  की  भरमार यहाँ,

मुबारक  हो  सबको  त्योहार  दीवाली,

के  इसके  जैसा  कोई  त्योहार  कहाँ ?

खुशियों  की  ऐसी  फुहार  कहाँ?

खुशियों  की  ऐसी  फुहार  कहाँ?…

Wish you all a very happy and vibrant Deepawali 🙂

My gratitude to all the superheroes donning the white apron with pride. I hope you have a wonderful day, a fruitful year and an amazing life. Happy Doctor’s Day.
Here’s a poem to do the honors…

Presenting my composition, a tribute to the doctors and in fact all the medicos, which found a place in the annual collection of shortlisted poems selected by the jury of poetry society of India. I couldn’t win though, but it is a huge motivation to keep trying. Here it goes:

We are the Doctors


We  are  the  healers, we  cure,  we  care,

Cope  with  plights,  only  few  would  dare,

We  are  everywhere; so common yet  so  rare,

The resilient, eccentric & beyond compare,

We who missed the dusk of adolescence;

Solving MCQs  & juggling  books  for  reference,

Suffered in saudade  to  don the white coats,

Trying  to  be  resolute  while  riding  many  boats,

We  study  not  only  medicine, but  law  to  stats,

Playing multiple tricks with solitary hats,

For us, winsome moments are like spam,

And life is only what is  left  between  exams,

We  who  graduate  as  our  friends  finish  PGs,

Playing multiple tricks with solitary hats,

For us, winsome moments are like spam,

And life is only what is  left  between  exams,

We  who  graduate  as  our  friends  finish  PGs,

A  suffix for  our  names, sure  doesn’t  come  easy,

Can’t  take  shortcuts; we  must  take  the  longer  route,

MD, DM & more; we study  till  there’s juice in the fruit,

The  Stethoscope  is  our  crown, a  cachet  you  can  bet,

It  is  ‘THE  RESPONSIBILITY’; and as  big  as  it  can  get,

We  treat  people  irrespective  of  caste, colour  or  time,

Doesn’t  matter  if  covered  in  vomit, blood  or  slime,

Because saving  a  life  is  worth  every  dime,

And  we don’t hesitate to  put  our  own  lives  on  the  line,

Friends  and  family  spend  the  nights  alone  and  dizzy,

‘Coz  we  are  notorious  for  being  perpetually  busy,

Live like luftmensch; whom people often misconstrue,

As we associate  first  rains  with  malaria  or  dengue,

We  are  the  misfits, flamboyant but  nerds,

Willingly sitting in  cage  but  immanently free  birds,

We   allow  for  prejudices  and not  be  judgmental,

Specialise in handling  mobs while  being  gentle,

We  must  always  be  composed  and  calm,

And it’s not  always  easy; ‘coz  yes, oh  darn!!

Deemed  gods  when  we  save and  killers  if  we  can’t,

But we try & make a wish; which only the gods can grant,

We  are  the  doctors; the  healers, protectors,

Spreading smiles, we are just the vectors,

Reverence is what we seek, but a smile may sure suffice,

We only want all to be safe; healthy, wealthy and wise,

Healthy, wealthy and wise…
