This is what I received as a forward today…

“मेरी कोई ख़ता तो साबित कर,

जो बुरा हूँ तो बुरा साबित कर;


तुम्हे चाहा है कितना तू क्या जाने;


चल में बेवफ़ा ही सही,

तू अपनी वफ़ा साबित कर” ~ गुलज़ार 



I am not really sure if Gulzarji is the actual writer of this but here is my take on this one…


“ज़िन्दगी सिर्फ मोहब्बत से नहीं चलती,

वफा बेवफा की बातें ना कर;


में उड़ना चाहती हूँ,

तू हवा देने की काबिलियत तो साबित कर!” ~सखी

“I am suppose to be your strength, the mind tells me that,

Encourage you so that you become your best;

Just wish eyes would not brim with a mere thought of yours,

And heart would not squash with the memories here on.”


There’s a monster under my bed!

To my mother I said,

She scorned at me ,

I tried to look brave with all my might,

Because I had woken her up in the middle of night.

There’s the monster under my bed!

I screamed again,

But my mother was in no mood,

To listen to my plead again and again.

So reluctantly went I to my room,

My room which was now den of doom.

I went where the evil monster lay,

Ready to eat and slay,

It was my time to pray,

I bravely crept into my room.

But, to my surprise,

Where the evil monster was supposed to lay,

There was a big pile of hay,

I was so happy I began to dance in joy,

What a mysterious day O boy!
