तिरंगे को सलाम

आज  तिरंगे को सलाम है 
 आज हम भी  तिरंगा  को ऊंचा करेंगे  
जम्मू या कन्याकुमारी में  नहीं 
लाल चौक का किला भी नहीं 
पर आज हम इससे अपने दिल में ऊंचा करेंगे
हम अपने दिल में ख़ुशी से लहराएँगे
इसे धरती का कोना या अम्बर की गहराई नहीं चाहिए
सिर्फ अपने दिल में थोड़ी सी जगह दे दो 
वोह ख़ुशी के  तीन रंग  सारे जहाँ में फ़ैल जायेगा 
यह तिरंगा, जो शान्ति, एकता और प्यार का प्रतीक है 
आज फिर से उसे दिल से सलाम है 
आओ चलो हम भी लहराये तिरंगे को अपने दिल में |

rOADS of love

is not at all that easy as they appear to be.
Yes we all like a lover 
I mean who doesn’t love it.
Our mind is filled with all these filmy philosophies of being in love
Who doesn’t like to be courted?
Who doesn’t like to be loved?
With all those romanticism in our mind
We are obsessed with the “love” word itself
That we can never get over it.

But after all this, comes the toughest part
                Our parents
Who cannot understand all this love philosophy at all!
Yes we love them and respect them with all our heart

And suddenly the same loving and doting parents of ours
Turn out to be the villain in our love story.
They find the respective faults with our choice of lover
And we find faults in their orthodox way of thinking.

So here we go in a roller coaster ride of love life
Where we have to manage our lover in one side
With all those great notions, that everything is fair in love and war
And that it’s just a matter of time and everyone will agree with our selected lover.
And then you hear a little sob in one corner of the house
And in between those sobs, you feel their disappointment with you
And you feel all guilty and sad to cause them such pain

Well I don’t know how the lovers do it?
Wondering what those parents feel whose kids elope with their lovers
And in some lucky cases, parents even accept their child back
But for some, parents consider them dead forever.
Few even sacrifice their love for the sake of parent’s happiness

Well some move on, and some hope that some day, everything will be alright
Until then it’s all about waiting and hoping the best.

Something to smile about

Life is giving me some moments to smile about
But this heart is not satisfied
As it wants to smile every moment of this life
But this life is not giving me those moments

So for now, I am treasuring those small moments
As I don’t know, when I will need them 
to make me smile again.
