Kabir Das ke Dohe 2 – Aisi Bani Boliye Man ka Aapa Khoye

An attempt to re popularize Kabir Das Ke dohe . I record the dohas and talk about their meaning

ऐसी वाणी बोलिए मन का आप खोये |
औरन को शीतल करे, आपहुं शीतल होए

This one is ” Aise Bani Boliye” a doha about the virtue of speech.

Do you have a favorite doha by Kabir or any other author? Please let me know. I would love to record

Nostalgia – Ode to college life and friends -English Poem

 

Go to Hindi Version

Since long have I waited for this day

wondering what ahead of me lay

I used to say, for  years I survived this

then how come when its over something seems amiss

A lot is left unsaid and unheard

a lot of memories still unstirred

Who will now make my nick names

who will take all my blames

with whom will I bet on the lyrics of a song

was it dong dong or bong bong

Who will be my wingman when I hit on someone

who will be my support, when there is no one

Remember?

When we decide to study the entire night

but end up gossiping till its bright

Who will tell me all my awards are trash

maybe I should sell them for some cash

Ohh those days

When we used to sit and laugh at someone for no reason

When talking to a friend’s enemy was nothing but pure treason

When we could call dibs on anyone we saw recently

and all dibs would be treated pretty seriously

Who will tell me I am great ,when I am down

and when I am flying too high, will drag me down without a frown

Who will be my michief maker and partner in crime

Who will fight with me over just a dime

During exam times who will wake me up and ask me to run

But then also pour cold water on me ,just for fun

Who will call me from back seat and ask me to look at front

then laugh when I take the teachers brunt

I dont know if this will happen again

please tell me  we will meet again

There is lot left to say

how I wish these times could stay

Life will throw a lot of challenges and there is a danger

Someday our best pal might be a stranger

it will become hard to recollect names

forget our old stupid games

you can laugh at me today I wont mind

Will save it to bring a smile on my face

when life gives me the grind

One Million Magi- English Poem

Let me start this post by apologising to Subho for not posting this beautiful poetry of his earlier(It’s been a year ). I had tried recording it at a few instances earlier but failed, the poem is too powerful for me to do full justice and I was not happy with my initial trials, even though this one may not be as excellent as it should be, I hope it atleast does not do injustice to the poem .
Here you go: One Million Magi

A Grey World

Everything today is looking so damn dull grey

The black and the white no longer in the fray

The green and the red fallen by the way

The blue and the yellow no longer so mellow

A beautiful poem by The Fool on nature and environment.What happens if we do not take care of it?

Waapsi–Shayari

A wonderful poem and shayari by a friend Aashish Agrawal.This one is actually a combination of 2 of his love poems but fit perfectly well with each other.
This is not very uncommon because many creative people in their heads are trying to tell the same story again and again in the best possible way and hence most of their work sometimes seems connected at some level

आज की कहानी, एक माँ की ज़ुबानी

क्योंकि कुछ रिश्ते फसबूक पे नहीं निभाए जाते .

This is a must listen for today’s facebook generation, sometimes we forget that some relations cannot be fulfilled via facebook.This is probably what many parents feel
