Look Ma, I Wrote A Song !

Once upon a time, I wrote this for a filmmaker friend.
He was polite. I did not like that.

Shahar Hei So Gaya
Safar Bhi Neend Mein
Ye Bhole Raaste
Yoon Saath Chal Pade

Woh Chand Chupke Bhi
Lage Hei Kyon Khila
Chupa Chupi Ka Yei
Ajab Hei Silsila

Thami Imaratein
Rooki Ye Khidkian
Subah Ki Aas Mein
Unidin Shyahiyan

Samay Ki Daur Ko
Chala Mein Laangh Ke
Mein Uske Peeche Hoon
Ya Uske Samne ?

Mein Uske Peeche Hoon
Ya Uske Samne ?


Now since I am at it, let me give you another one.
The same friend was equally polite about this one as well.

Tees Ke Uspaar Kashti
Tairne Ki Ab Tameej
Chand Kinare Saath Aye
Par Chahiye Kuch Aur Bhi

Karakasha Rahon Se Gujre
Peeche Peeche Pyar Ke
Nafraton Ke Dum Nibhaye
Par Chahiye Kuch Aur Bhi

Par Chahiye Kuch Aur Bhi
Par Chahiye Kuch Aur Bhi

Can I give you one more ?
(this one misfired badly, in the long run)

Uski Ankhen Kuch
Kehna Chahati Hein Shayad
Kankhiyon Se Bakhabar
Rehna Chahti Hein Shayad

Wo Jhijhakana Wo
Moohn Chupane Ki Ada
Dosti Ke Hak Ada
Karna Chahati Hein Shayad

Kankhiyon Se Bakhabar
Rehna Chahti Hein Shayad


Uski Ankhen Kuch

hi arun.
this side of you was forever hidden from all of us. Very entertaining poetry apart from the fact that they are bleeding romantic. Great to know that you ever had a shayarna andaaz too... would love to hear them from the horses mouth. I am sure you would have a unique style of rendering them too...

Hi Arun,

really liked the first one....
especially:
Samay Ki Daur Ko
Chala Mein Laangh Ke
Mein Uske Peeche Hoon
Ya Uske Samne ?

Mein Uske Peeche Hoon
Ya Uske Samne ?

wonderful..!!
