About knowledge, I am not so sure February 23, 2010

Filed under: English — rahul8nitb @ 1:44 am

By My Friend Ashok

Again its that time of the year
when books seem far
everything else seems near
The exams are a few days away
but I am not worried
coz all hopes of getting good marks
are already buried

Such a difficult ask it is
Such a herculean task it is
All those long answers
that continue to bug
Ridiculous facts and figures
we have to mug

Should getting marks be our only aim?
Are we culprits too?
or the education system is to blame?
Don’t ask me…….
for I don’t know
even something like
What separates ice from snow.

The structure impresses
but the foundation is weak
everyone’s hopeful
but the future is bleak
Sounding so hopeless,
might not sound right
But I am just expressing
a student’s plight.

But all hope is not yet lost
Ill get a degree at any cost
About knowledge,
I am not so sure
I just hope this paralyzed system
finds a cure.



To Har Lamha Khulkar Jiya Hota February 22, 2010

Filed under: Hindi — rahul8nitb @ 2:27 pm

Zindagi mein kash kal ki maut ko aaj dekha hota

To har lamhe ko khulkar  jiya hota

Sapno mein hamare bhi ek jannat thi

Dil mein hamare bhi ek tamanna thi

Par zindagi ki race mein ye sab tanhaa thi

Waqt apne raste  khud bana rha tha

Dil bas apne dard ko chupa rha tha

kash kal ke aaine mein aaj ko dekha hota,

To har lamhe ko khulkar jiya hota

Kabhi itihaas ke panno ko kahani nahi samja hota

Kabhi bache ki zid ko naadani nahi samja hota

Kabhi  Dil k in jazbato ko jawani nahi samja hota

Aur kabhi aakh mein chupe is aasu ko  pani nahi samja hota

Zindagi ne kash hume ek mauka diya hota

To har lamhe ko  khulkar  jiya hota



Deafening Silence February 21, 2010

Filed under: English — rahul8nitb @ 6:03 pm

By My friend Ashok

There used to be a boy
who didn’t talk too much
not very gregarious
very introvert as such

People often asked
“Are you too arrogant?
Or just too shy?”
“Silence is golden”
They always got the reply

He had his own world
beautiful,ordinary and simple
driven by fantasy,
filled with ecstasy
A world where the heart was not for sale
and everything happened
as if he was in a fairy tale

But every tale has to have a twist
this tale was no different
A twist to which he was blissfully oblivious
The entry of a girl,
seemed painfully obvious

In she came and wrecked havoc
in his orderly life
“Silence is golden” was a thing of the past
In his conversations with her
for him,
time flew just too fast

With her
everything seemed possible
every dream plausible
every height scalable

But fairy tales,
are not meant to last
Like so many,
that have ended in the past

One day when he was waiting for her
she never came
She died in a car crash he came to know
and the world was never the same

a year has gone by
he has become emotionless
still not over the thoughts of his princess
“Silence is golden” has lost its meaning
except now that her silence is deafening



Intezaar hai us pal ka……. February 20, 2010

Filed under: Hindi — rahul8nitb @ 6:10 am


Zindagi mein the akele

mila koi pyara sa

bade jo silsile

lagne laga hamara sa.

Chaha tha hume

kisi ne pehli baar

laga hamare naseeb mein bhi

likha hai kisi ka pyaar.

Ab aalam tha yeh ki

unke khayalon mein khoye rahte the,

jaagte the hum jab

baki saare soye rahte the.

Is jahan se hume

ab naa koi aas thi,

jaise duniya ki har khushi ab hamare paas thi.

Ab naa koi fikar thi

naa koi asar tha,

par phir hua wahi

jiska hume darr tha.

thi unki koi puraani majboori,

ek pal mein aa gyi meelon ki doorie.

Isme kisi ki galti

koi dokha nhi tha,

hoga kuch aisa shayad

unhone bhi kabhi socha nhi tha.

Mana unke dil mein hamare liye

koi jagah nhi hai,

par hum unhe yaad naa kare iski bhi

humare paas koi wajah nhi hai.

woh kahti hai

mat badao apni pareshaniya

unhe kya batayein chahat hai yeh

koi sajah nhi hai.

Yeh jaante hai ki hume

ab aise hi jeena hoga,

gam ke ho ya khushi ke

in aansuon ko hume hi peena hoga.

Intezaar karte hai us pal ka

jis pal hume unke dil mein thodi jagah mil jaye,

kismat mein ho toh

humare hisse ka pyaar bhi hume mil jaaye.



Finding God

Filed under: English — rahul8nitb @ 3:53 am

By Ashok

Finding God is easy
If you know where to look
You will find him in your hearts
Not in an idol, stone or book

You will find him in your parents
who are nothing short of Gods
Who are always there for you
against all the odds

You will find him in your teacher
who gives you knowledge
Who tells you what gaps to fill
Who tells you,
To find the real God, its the devil inside
You’ve to kill

You will find him in your friends
Who never take and always give
Who would rather die together
Than stay alone and live

You will find him in the happiness when you help others
For almost everyone helps their brothers
(Nowadays even that is rare to find,
Materialism has taken over big time
just to be fair to their kind.)

And last but not the least
How can you forget the cupid beast
You will find God
In the eyes of someone you hold dear
Someone whom you’ll never let go
Always want her to be near

As you see
I found God so easily
He wasn’t so hard to find
Though so different his forms are
Yet each one is



She’s The One February 19, 2010

Filed under: English — rahul8nitb @ 7:37 am

By my friend Ashok

Once again , sleep has evaded me
Once agin, her thoughts have persuaded me
To sit down and write
As I rack my brains searching for words
With all my might.

I am playing with my pen,
I wonder where to start.
With her staggering beauty ?
Or her beautiful heart
Describing them both
is not an easy task at all
And it doesn’t help
that I am not so poetic after all

Talking to her
is the most wonderful part of the day
I just love to listen
and she has an awful lot to say
Her voice so enchanting
It almost casts a spell,
How the time flew by
is  most difficult to tell

Watching her smile
takes away all my pains
Like a thirsty soul
searching for water
suddenly put into the rains

She has invaded my mind
Conquered my thoughts
She has made my ordered life
a little out of sorts

I would stop here
for I have other promises to keep,
I am done with this now
So I shall try going back to sleep.


Aaj phir tanhai hai February 18, 2010

Filed under: Hindi — rahul8nitb @ 5:32 pm

Aaj phir tanhai hai,phir kisi ki yaad tadpa rahi hai,

Dard ke in ashko se jindgi simati jaa rahi hai,

Haath mein jaam dekhkar log kahte hai,” kyo pite ho itna ki bardaash na kar sako”

kya batai unhe ki bardashgi hi to hadh se gujarti ja rhi hai,

Aaj phir tanhai hai,phir kisi ki yaad tadpa rhi hai,

Dosto ki mahfil mein humne bhi dilo ko hasaya hai,

Phir jindgi humse kyo ruswa hoti jaa rhai hai,

Waqt ke paimane mein kyo suiya galat samay bata rahi hai,

Aaj phir tanhai hai phir kisi ki yaad tadpa rhi hai

Meine parwane se pucha ,”kyo jalta hai uske pyar mein”,

To usne bola,” nahi jalta uske pyar mein to jindgi bhar tadpta uske intazaar mein”

Aaj phir tanhai hai,phir kisi ki yaad tadpa rahi hai
