    तू है…के नहीं?

    He and I. Used for Tu Hai Ke Nahin a poem by Sudham
    He and I
    आज एक याद फ़िर ताज़ा हो चली है
    संग वो अपने सौ बातें
    और हज़ार एहसास ले चली है
    तोड़ वक़्त के तैखाने की ज़ंजीरें
    खुली आँखों में टंग गयी
    बीते पलों में बसी तस्वीरें
    सुनाई साफ़ देती है हर बात
    अफ़सानों का ज़ायका
    और निखर गया है सालों के साथ
    दर्द और ख़ुशी का अजब ये मेल है
    संग हो तुम फिर भी नहीं हो
    बस यही क़िस्मत का खेल है

    Ek re-take milega kya?

    It was a friends anniversary a few weeks back.  It was also a day spent reminiscing. It was a day spent wondering what it would have been like.

    How many times have you come across people with the capability to live in the moment…no matter what..? More often than not these people have the capability to inject that bit of enthusiasm into dullards like yours truly.

    The words “Chal, kuch kartein hain…” (come, let’s do something) keep ringing in my ears time and again. How do you not think about a person who has pretty much been a part of the start of everything in your life…sport, eating out, partying, rock music….love. The chal kuch kartein hain has been responsible for many a thing and more often than not getting us into trouble!!

    Shakespeare famously said and I quote

    “All the world’s a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players:
    They have their exits and their entrances;
    And one man in his time plays many parts,
    His acts being seven ages…”

    Feel as though the script went horribly wrong somewhere. The curtains came down much earlier.

    Just one thought though…”Ek re-take milega kya??
