All I do is smile...
Because that is what I have been taught...
By my small town mother...
Who made me a small town child...
And I thought it was bad...insulting...
Being and being called a 'small town'er.

But the tag became so mine...
As mine as the mother...
And I carried both of them together...
To the big cities...
With all the love and grace.
Proudly I faced...
The world...the people...
who tagged my name.
How could I even blame...
Them. The big towners.
They were born achievers.

I was not!
I was not packed in brands...
The coloured strands...the manicured hands...
The cars, the bungalows...the lands!
Who understands...
The struggle of limitations...
The fight of ambitions...the urge of recognitions...
The journey through several juctions...
To reach these positions...
With the tag!
And so when you call me a small towner...
All I do is smile...
Have been watching the ways of the world...all this while!

Koshish!

Mere shabdon me kahee agar uljhan dikhe tumhe to bataana
kyunki koshish bahut kee hai unhe chhupaane kee
Aur Koshish - ye koshish bhi na dikhaane kee!

Magar einsaan hoon...
Shabd fisalte hai
Main le jaati hu eis od
Wo uss od chalte hai...

Galti unki bhi nahee hai...
Wo to zazbaat se bandhe hai...
Thik waise hi jaise main aur tum...
haalat se bandhe hai!

Hasee aati hai kahaani sun ne waalon ko bhi...
Ki pyaar karna aur karwaana to aajkal bada aasaan maana jaata hai...
Aaj haath pakda, kal bistar, padso darwaaza...haan ya naa poochha ya bataaya bhi kahaan jaata hai...
Sab chalta hai!
Ek gaya to doosra milta hai...

Sab aasaan hai...unke liye...
Eisliye hasee aati hai unhein...
To haalat yun hai kuchh...ki ye uljhanein...
tumse bhi chhuppaein...aur un se bhi naa kahain...
Bas andar hi andar jalein...

Mere shabdon me kahee agar ye jalan dikhe tumhe to bataana
kyunki koshish bahut kee hai unhe chhupaane kee
Aur Koshish - ye koshish bhi na dikhaane kee!

Shoonya!

मत सोचो शून्य की कौन सी परिभाषा सटीक होगी...
शून्य अगर हो आज...कल दशा विपरीत होगी...
और शून्य होने मे बुराई भी क्या है?
कौन ले गया ये अंक...ये महलें, ये घोड़े, ये सिक्के,
राजा हो या रंक?
सब शून्या ले कर आए...शून्य ले कर गये...
जो अंक . जीवन भर जोड़े...पीछे ही छ्चोड गये...

तो दूख किस बात का?
रेस मे विजेता ना आने का,
या अपनी ही कोई रेस ना बनाने का?
या उसके भी आगे ना निकल जाने का?

आगे है क्या?
कौन है जिसे मिलना है...कहाँ तक पहुचना है?
क्या हासिल करना है?

शान...शौकत...पैसे...इज़्ज़त?
जानते हुए भी हक़ीक़त...
की शून्य लेकर आए हो...शून्य ही लेकर जाओगे!

जब तक रेस मे शामिल हो... ये गणित कहाँ समझ पाओगे!
