tabdeeliyaan

Tabdeeliyaan (Changes)

Lagte hain aalam wo bezaar sabhi
Hua karte the jo gulzar kabhi
Mukhtalif se ho gaye jo the mehram kabhi
Wo jo laazmi the ab pehchaanane mein aate nahi

Main aaunga

Main Aaunga

Waqt ka kya aitbaar
Aaj is ore kal us paar
Milne tujhse kisi mod par
Main aaunga fir ek baar

Munafiqat

Munafiqat (Hypocrisy)

Munafiq zamaane ke dunyavi naate
Kyu mujhe ye kabhi samajh nahi aate
Jab jab maine inhe samajhna hai chaha
Tab tab sile mein syaah izteraab hai paya

Aahatein

Aahatein

Ye kaisi hain aahatein jo dhadkan sun leti hain
Ye kaise hain khwaab jo aankhein bun leti hain
Jo mud ke main peeche dekhun kabhi 
To waise hi dikhta hai sabhi
Par jo dil ki sunun, to aahatein teri milti hain
Jinme sochein meri kayi dhalti hain

Izteraab

Izteraab (Restlessness)

Aaj fir tere taghaful (neglect) ne diya sochon ka ek sailab (flood)
Jo tu bekhabar hai wahan, to kaisa hai ye izteraab
Jisne khade kar diye kuch sawalia nishan (question marks)
Jisne tod diye naa jaane kitne hi gumaan (notions)

Rivaayatein

Rivayatein (Customs)

Karni hai mujhe kuch shikayatein
Badalni hai mujhe kuch rivayatein
Jinhone kayi hain dil tode
Jinhone kayi khwaab tode

Mere Raahgeer

Mere Raahgeer!

Aye raahgeer! Ye kaisa hai rishta humara
Saath hain ki nahi, jaise kisi nadi ka kinara

Main muntazir rehta hu,
tere har roz guzarne ka
Main musalsal raasta dekhta hu,
roz tere aane ka

Mann ki Khalaa

Mann ki Khalaa

Zehen me uth rahe jo kayi sawaal
Bawandar se uth rahe jo kayi khayal
Dhoondne chala jo main unke jawaab
Mila to sirf mujhe mustaquil izteraab 

Fir yoon hi ek din main chala
Bharne mann ki khalaa

Zindagi se Roobaroo

Zindagi se Roobaroo

Ek din zindagi se roobaroo hue hum jo
Laga ki yaadon ka ek sailab beh chala ho
Har manzar nazar ke saamne jaise aa gaya wo
Ek saaf sa aayina jaise kisi ne laa, rakh diya ho

Poochhe maine zindagi se jab sawaal yoon
Ki aye zindagi! itni mushkil si tu mujhe lagti hai kyun

Khwaab, dreams

Khwaab (Dreams)

Kaanch ke haseen khwaab jo,
gustaakh aankhein dekh baithi thi
Achaanak se subah hui jo,
palkein unhi se rooth baithi thi

Wo khwaab the
ya galatfahmiyan thi
Wo sawaab the
ya mehez khushfahmiyan thi

Baatein

Baatein

Ek dua jo aasmano se ata hui mujhe
Wo ankahi dua hai tu
Jisne fir se jeena sikhaya mujhe
Wo sukoon ka sabab hai tu

Aahat tere aa jaane ki
Bolti hain ab khamoshiyan bhi mujhse
Baatein jo zubaan ne naa ki
Kehti wo teri aankhein hai mujhse

Unsaid Words

Unkahi (Unsaid)

Kayi khat jo dil ne likhe
Unhe zubaan naa keh saki
Kayi harf jo aankhon ne padhe
Wo baatein jo bayaan naa hui

Aye Zindagi

Aye Zindagi!

Aye Zindagi! chal ek samjhauta kar lein aaj
Kyu naa doraahe se raasta hum bana lein aaj

Kuch tu aasaan ho jaa naa
Kuch main mazboot banta hoon
Kuch tu mere mutabiq ho jaa naa
Kuch main tere liye badalta hoon

Live in the moment

Waqt

Achhe waqton ki raah mein,
Kayi muddatein beet gayi
Wo to naa aaya is daur mein,
Par zindagi zaroor beet gayi

Kya hai achha waqt?
Ye kisko pata hai
Kaisa ye hota hai
Wo kaun jaanta hai

Shikayatein

Shikaayatein jo hain wo bol dein ki nahi
Shikaayatein jo reh gayin unsuni unkahi

Faasle jo failein hain darmayaan humare
Unko bharein hum, ya chhodein unke sahaare

Bol doon ki nahi (To say or not)

Is kadar sochte sochte aankhon me hi raat kat gayi
Kya kahun kya sunun ye hisaab lagate hi subah ho gayi

Ki bol doon ya chup rahoon, ya bas sirf ek ishara kar doon
Ki bhool jaun ya yaad rakhun, ya bas mehez chhod doon

Meher

Meher (Benevolance)

Ye khwaab hai ki haqeeqat, ya hai mehez ek fasaana
Ye mubaalge hain, Khush-fahami hai, jo bhi hai ye afsaana

Ittefaqan hai ye, ya hai uski koi meherbaani
Ya qubooliyat hai us dua ki, jo maangi naa thi zubaani

Keeping the Light of Hope within

Why our expectations from our lives are subjected to fairy tales? Why we always expect the ‘Ideal’ things or people to happen with us, when in the reality, nothing is ‘Ideal’. The description of this ‘Ideal’ also varies from one person to another, but what remains common in all the descriptions is that we all […]

The Infinite Ocean of My Heart

Sometimes when I see so many people around yet feel lonely, I think about you. Your voice, your words, I can still hear them clearly, the song you used to sing, the melody in your trembling voice is still as fresh as if you are here with me right now. The other moment I realize […]
