Tum hi tum ho base khayaalon me

Tum hi tum ho base khayaalon me,
kya likhoon ab ki kuch bacha hi nahi.

bhari mehfil me bulava do jhukti palkon ka,
pukaarne ka voh andaaz ab bacha hi nahi.

jo ghul jata tha tabiyat me shahad ke jaisa,
tamaam shahar me vo lahza kahin bacha hi nahi.

ye mere dil ke lahoo se ranga tera haath sanam,
hina ke rang ke layak ye ab bacha hi nahi.

mere pahoonchne me bahut der na ho jaaye kahin,
aur vo kah den ab aaye ho? kuch bacha hi nahi.

ki jis lohe se khuda dhaalta tha aadam ko,
ab bahut saal hue, faulaad voh bacha hi nahi.

aaj duniya me her insaan lahoo ka hai pyaasa,
aur ragon me daudta paani, lahoo bacha hi nahi.

ki ab maykhaane me sab pee ke hosh khote hain,
jo pee ke hosh me aaye, voh ab bacha hi nahi.

vaqt ne likh diya sab kuch abhaga chehre per,
chhipaayen dil me jise, raaj ab bacha hi nahi.

Feeling harrased?

This comes from here. Awesome site if you are feeling a little down at work. Works magic for me. (Be warned that some of the content might be offensive. Click at your own risk. (no images, only text) )
1. Save every Free Credit Card Offer you get, Put it in pile A
2. Save every Free Coupon You get, put that in pile B
3. Now open the credit card mail from pile A and find the Business
Reply Mail Envelope.
4. Take the coupons from pile B and stuff them in the envelope you hold
in your hand.
5. Drop the stuffed to the brim envelopes in your mail and walk away
whistling.
I have now received two phone calls from the credit card companies
telling me that they received a stuffed envelope with coupons rather
then my application. They informed me that it they are not pleased that
they footed the bill for the crap I sent them. I reply with "It says
Business Reply Mail" I'm suggesting coupons to you to ensure that your
business is more succe…

Marginalia

A lovely poem about the marginalia, something to which I have been quite opposed till now (and I am not alone) but recently I am beginning to rethink about it. More of that later, right now enjoy the poem. Its lovely !!

Marginalia

Sometimes the notes are ferocious,
skirmishes against the author
raging along the borders of every page
in tiny black script.
If I could just get my hands on you,
Kierkegaard, or Conor Cruise O'Brien,
they seem to say,
I would bolt the door and beat some logic into your head.

Other comments are more offhand, dismissive -
"Nonsense." "Please!" "HA!!" -
that kind of thing.
I remember once looking up from my reading,
my thumb as a bookmark,
trying to imagine what the person must look like
why wrote "Don't be a ninny"
alongside a paragraph in The Life of Emily Dickinson.

Students are more modest
needing to leave only their splayed footprints
along the shore of the page.
One scrawls "Metaphor" next to a stanza of Eliot's.

The pain of being a mediocre

Yes I have done it again !! Once again in my life, I stamped myself with the mark that I hate most, the mark of being a mediocre !! I don't mind begin bad, hardly anyone minds being good but mediocre is one thing I never want to be.

It has happened so many times in the life now that I hardly feel sad and that makes it even worse. I am getting used to live like this. And this time it was nothing less but the profession that I have chosen for my life, things that I have been doing for 5-6 years now. After having spent 5 years typing, sitting in front of computer I do not know how to put together a decent piece of code fast enough !! How much more time do you need Mr. Abhaya Agarwal? How much?

Yes Google I accept !! I am still not worthy enough to set foot on your premises. But I will be.

Because if India has to change, I have to be the first one !

Ladies of the world !! Listen!
