Duaa

Kisse poochoon
Hai aisa kyun
Bezubaan sa yeh jahaan hai
Khushi ke pal..kahan dhoondhoon
Benishaan sa waqt hi yahan hai
Jaane kitne lub pe giley hai
Zindagi se kai faasley hai
Ussey jeete hai sapne kyun aankhon mein
Lakeerein chootey jab inn haathon se
Bewajah
Jo bheji thi duaa..woh jaake aasmaan..
Se yoon takra gayi
Ke aa gayi hai laut ke sadaa
Jo bheji thi duaa..woh jaake aasmaan..
Se yoon takra gayi
Ke aa gayi hai laut ke sadaa

 

Saanson ne kaha rookh modh liya
Koi raah nazar mein na aaye
Dhadhkan ne kaha dil chodh diya
Kahan chodey inn jismon ke saaye
Yahi baar baar sochta hoon
Tanha main yahan
Mere saath saath chal raha hai
Yaadon ka dhuaan
Jo bheji thi duaa..woh jaake aasmaan..
Se yoon takra gayi
Ke aa gayi hai laut ke sadaa
Jo bheji thi duaa..woh jaake aasmaan..
Se yoon takra gayi
Ke aa gayi hai laut ke sadaa

Jo bheji thi duaa..woh jaake aasmaan..
Jo bheji thi duaa..

Happy Fools and Unhappy Smarties

Sometimes, it’s good to be a born fool.

Smart people who can count the feathers of a flying bird are often disturbed souls. They understand the unsaid. They can read minds. They can assess personalities. They can catch lies and thus, never get fooled. But, they are often confronted with ugly truths or facts. This isn’t a good thing!

Foolish people live in a fool’s paradise, where everything is like a dream – far from reality. Everything is beautiful. They can’t understand the difference between evil and good. Thus, they remain happy always.

 

What is Sexy to me?

Just a random thought. Ignore it if you disagree. 🙂

If you ask me what is sexy to me? I’d say: Attitude!

In my opinion, a good body or face is not sexy at all. Looks are transient – they will never remain the same. I choose something that stays on forever – that’s your attitude. Someone with a great attitude towards life and all that’s associated with life is sexy in my view.

Someone who is courageous, intelligent – or maybe talented – maybe humorous or wise – polite, courteous, or kind  – is sexy in my view. 

I don’t measure someone’s sexiness in figures – height, weight etc. I measure it more tangibly – through his ability to be himself all through his life. That makes him sexy – truly sexy.

A Part of Me who never Grew Up…

If you ask my best friend to define me, she’d say: A part of Monika never grew up after sixteen

How true is that! How precisely she knows me! I wonder.

Indeed a part of me never grew up beyond sixteen. That part of me makes me gel so well with people much younger than me – my students for that matter! When I speak with people half my age or a bit more,  I completely forget that I am now 33 – aging gradually. 

I always believed, and I still do that age is not just a matter of passing years of life. It is more than this. Age is all about becoming more rational and younger at heart with graying hair and falling teeth. It’s about accepting people of other age groups in the way they are – agile, full of life and love. 

If you ask me what I learn from young people, I’d say: I learn to talk freely about love; I learn to love madly and passionately; I learn to laugh out loud when my heart wants to; I learn to hold the hands of my partner in public without bothering what others might think; I learn to kiss him everyday and night despite spending half a decade with him in marriage.

I don’t care what people think about me – I just care about that little “self” inside me who is always agile, restless, and full of romance. I will never let her die inside me. I will always be young at heart, as I am today.
