Tumhare hone se hai ye jahan roshan,
Tumhare bagair hum kuchh bhi nahin!

Without you, we are just a bunch of losers who can not even take care of ourselves. We can not find our way home even on a straight road. We need you by our side every moment of our lives. We claim to have solved the complexities of life yet failed to accept that you are the foundation of all these answers. One day a year is just not enough for you, you deserve the celebration for centuries.

We are too proud to admit this but without…

लोग लड़ते हैं
अनजानों से
दुनिया के तानों से
झूठे दरबारों में रखे
बड़े बड़े पैमानों से
फ़रेबी ज़बानों से
रिश्तेदारों से
घर आए मेहमानों से
दूसरे की ज़मीनों से
दूजों की उड़ानों से!

इन सबसे मैं बहुत पहले जीत चुका मेरी तो लड़ाई है मेरे अंदर के तहख़ानों से मेरे भीतर के शमशानों से मैं राम भी हूँ, रावण भी हूँ भीतर की महाभारत का एक बड़ा कारण भी हूँ कृष्ण भी हूँ, कंस भी हूँ मैं सृजन का एक वंश भी हूँ मैं लाख भी हूँ मैं, स्वर्ण भी हूँ मैं जो हंसते हंसते सब कुछ दे दे…

Last week I accidentally deleted an entire app from the development database. Yes, you read it right. I wanted to delete one configuration in the app but ended up deleting the entire app. (The app in the scenario stores all the data in NoSQL including user data as well as app configurations).

I know it’s not a good thing to write about, but the learnings I had after this incident were incredible. Here they are:

Music: Music helps you focus on your work but sometimes, beats are so dope that they make you lost in them and you completely forgot…

एक अरसे से घेरे बैठी हो मन को,
सोचा था ख़ुद कान्हा तुम्हें राधा कर दूँ,
लेकिन दिल तुम्हें भी लगाना नहीं है,
तो आज फिर ख़ुद से एक वादा कर दूँ,
बहुत घटा हूँ तुझमें शामिल हो कर,
अब ख़ुद को ख़ुद से थोड़ा ज़्यादा कर दूँ,
और तुम्हारा हिस्सा मुझमें आधा कर दूँ।

most often
we don’t say the obvious
because that’s obvious
but state the obvious
because obvious things
are most misunderstood things
if they are not said
slowly they extinct
and make everyone miserable
leaving a ton of regrets
things get lost in translations
assumptions and silence
just a reminder
love is one of those obvious things!

love yourself
the way you love

freshly brewed coffee
the smell of earth after rain
packing for a trip
snoozing your alarm
missing your bus to work
or a child’s laugh

for all I know
the most consistent relationship
is between you and yourself
just make sure
that love never fades away!

i heard you talking
behind my back
you said I’ll go big
but not too far
i heard you have
already placed the bets
i wonder how lower
will you lower the bar
it hurts a bit
but here we are
you lost all the battles
without a scar
and look at me, baby
i am a fucking war!

घर आँगन मुझको है प्यारा
लेकिन मेरे सपने भी हैं
तुम मेरे अपने तो हो
वो मेरे अपने भी हैं
सच झूठ क्या है, जान जाऊँगा
पहले ख़ुद को जान तो लूँ
दुनिया के रंग हैं लाखों
अपने रंग पहचान तो लूँ!

धरती घूमूँ, अम्बर चूमूँ तारों के संग संग मैं झूमूँ आया हूँ मैं दुनिया में बेनाम तो ना जाऊँगा पीतल सा हूँ भले मैं कहानी सोने सी गाऊँगा बंधन मेरे खोल दो सारे थोड़ा सा मैं उड़ पाऊँगा वादा तुमसे करता हूँ मैं लौट कर वापस आऊँगा वक़्त इस से बेहतर क्या होगा अभी शुरू हुई है जवानी…

hold her hands
ask her for a dance
kiss her
in the streets of France
i know odds are low
but take that chance
because in the end
it’s all about romance!

It's not the words
But the voice
Which I crave
The assurance
The belief
The intimacy
The feeling of being close
Knowing someone knows us
Knowing that
the truth will be known
Even though you lied
with a bright smile
‘I am doing good’
‘You will be fine’
Are just words when written!
