Remove The Darkness Within

Remove The Darkness Within Diwali is not only the festival of artificial light but the light of enlightenment we ignite in ourselves. Togetherness, sharing, giving and the things like that associated with this festival all aim at making us a good human being. To be a good human is prerequisite before becoming a good follower of culture,faith,religion or leader. Happy Diwali to all. 

World is blind to humanity,
hate is the motto of today,
against the rising brutality,
no one has any say,
Who will light the lamp to send away darkness?

In politics all faces are the same,
no one is crusader against the bad,
business is checkmate game,
no one is for poor sad,
Who will light the lamp to spread the kindness?

Let the Human inside us rise,
more than any Messiah who sacrifice,
Who on evil & good can advice,
encourage other to be wise,
Only a light illuminating inside us can kill the darkness.

Hope To Celebrate A Diwali In Which I Can Burn The Evils Inside Me And Also Spread The Message Aro…

 मदिरालय जाने को घर से चलता है पीनेवला, 'किस पथ से जाऊँ?' असमंजस में है वह भोलाभाला,
अलग-अलग पथ बतलाते सब पर मैं यह बतलाता हूँ -
'राह पकड़ तू एक चला चल, पा जाएगा मधुशाला।'
Madiralya Jaane Ko Ghar Se Chalta Hai Peenewala,
'Kis Path Se Jaaon?' Asmanjas Mein Hai Wah Bhola Bhala,
Alag-Alag Path Batlate Sab Par Mein Yeh Batlata Hun - 
'Rah Pakad Tu Ek Chala Chal, Pa Jaega Madhushala .'

Drunkard leaves the home to go to tavern,
'Which way should I go?' in dilemma asks the perplexed one,
Different pe…

Two Minute Medley #6

Two Minute Medley #6 In this edition of two minute medley I like to wish Happy Dussehra to all of you. Including tragic Elphinstone Road Railway Station stampede incident and Muharram Mourning. 

दूजे की लापरवाही पर अपनों को खो दिया, बुराई के अंत के त्यौहार पर अन्याय जीत गया। 

Prophet's grandson Hasan Hussein's sacrifice mourning, People lament their death in huge gathering 

A warrior prince truthful to his ideals, killed the learned man having pride unreal, the knowledge is a blessing for honest & capable, but one who used it unwisely it is suicidal.

Chaap Tilak Sab Cheeni Re Mose Naina Milaike

छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके।(ChaapTilak Sab Chini Re Mose Naina Milaike) - You Have Taken Away My Looks,My Identity By Just A Glance - Amir KhusroAmir Khusro is a great Sufi poet and disciple of Nizammuddin Auliya. Mostly his creations are in devotion of his Nizam (master) and they are portrayed in a way a beloved is talking about her lover. That worldly love known to people is used as metaphors by him to tell his heavenly love to God or to his master. I have shared here one of his famous 'Ghazal' sung as qawwali by many Indian and Pakistani Singers. In this he said that by just a glance a heavenly look his master has taken away all from him. He said that his identity is dissolved in Him with that look; they both have become one.  Elaborated Here. 

छाप तिलक सब छीनी रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके, प्रेम भटी का मदवा पिलाइके, मतवारी कर लीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके, गोरी गोरी बईयाँ, हरी हरी चूड़ियाँ, बईयाँ पकड़ धर लीन्ही रे मोसे नैना मिलाइके, बल बल जाऊं मैं तोरे रंग रजवा, अपनी सी रंग दीन्…

Shayari #19 - Eid-ul-Zuha

शायरी #19 - ईद-उल-जुहा 
Eid-ul-Zuha, Eid-ul-Adha or just Bakra Eid means feast of sacrifice. Here sacrificing an animal signifies willingly given our love possession in the way of Allah in this case the pampered animal reared with love. It is debatable now to change the practice but it is celebrated around the world and help in feeding millions in the world as a part of sacrifice must be distributed among poor & needy. Moreover those in the business run their families by rearing animals and then selling them during Eid. Here I am sharing a #Shayari on this occasion. Happy Eid. Eid Mubarak.

Iss Mitti Mein Mit Jana Hai

इस मिट्टी में मिट जाना है। (Iss Mitti Mein Mit Jana Hai)

'Iss Mitti Mein Mil Jana Hai' is voice of those Indians namely Muslims and Dalits who are treated as second class citizen nowadays. They are as much part of the nation building as any other citizen of India and didn't need any proof of their patriotism. Amid increase incidents of violence against Dalits & Muslims by Gau Rakshaks this Hindi Kavita authenticate their attachment with India. On this Independence Day we must cherish our unity and deny any force trying to fill hatred in us. Happy Independence Day. 

इस मिट्टी में जीना है, इस मिट्टी में मिट जाना है,
कोई चाहे या न चाहे मुझे तेरा साथ निभाना है।  
Is Mitti Mein Jina Hai, Iss Mitti Mein Mar Jana Hai,
Koi Chahe Ya Na Chahe Mujhe Tera Saath Nibhana Hai.

एक नज़्म नहीं, एक रस्म नहीं, 
एक वेश नहीं, एक भोजन नहीं,
क्या मुझको सुनाना है, क्या मुझको खाना है,
ये बताने वालों ने न अपना रिश्ता जाना है। 
Ek Nazm Nahin, Ek Rasm Nahin,
Ek Vesh Nahin, Ek Bhojan Nahin,
Kya Mujhko Sunana H…
