Zazbaat (Hindi Poetry)

Kabhi mere khwab sa uljho
aur nigaho mein sulajh jaao,
kabhi khamosh in hotho par khilkhilati
khubsurat muskan si bikhar jaao,
kabhi meri khwahisho ke samandaro ko thaamo
kinaare par shabdo ko theraav do,
aane ki ummeed mein tumhare sajaa rakhe hai
ek waqt ke intezaar aur khyaal puraane
ke kabhi toh band in khyalo ke jharokhe tatolo
tum hi tum nazar aoge dil ki koi bhi khidki kholo

Mistake

You stepped again in my life
like pleasant rain showers
of summers with clear blue sky
I still remember you left me alone
the times when I needed you the most
nevertheless my love is still pure
I can withstand next to you
in every odd times
be it the struggling days or venom nights
I will hold you & never leave aside
walkthrough blindly either its heaven or hell besides
I will be there on your one call
on any uncertain turn of life
weird things becomes my favourite
just for your smile
but I cannot fall in love twice
you fool me once
I became heartless nothing left inside
I learnt from mistakes
its better to be wise.

Little Things!

Sometimes little things matter a lot!

There is a little place in me
where I still feel you a little everyday
Those deep beautiful eyes that holds
oceans of infinite emotions inside
still trying to loose the storms a little everyday
your whispers softly echo a little everyday
kisses still linger on my heart a little everyday
the memories rambles around a little everyday
I guess if I could explain
that I miss you a little everyday
though everything has changed a lot but
a little part of you will always
be a forever part of me
a little to often yet a little too much
& a little more with every passing day!!.

A Clue..

This one is very close to my heart as it gives me an idea to initiate with drafting feelings of heart on papers and supposedly first romantic broken heart verse that direct me towards short story writing.I hope you would enjoy reading it.

It would happen i knew

but it would happen like this

i never had a clue..

We had gone together so far

now we are distant apart

you said that it was all my fault

but ever thought

what went wrong..

no regrets for bieng with you in past

we created a lot of memories which would be cherished till lasts,

I hope i could tell you how i felt

unfortunately now things won’t be mend again

just one question

have you ever trust me like i do to you

if yes than how could you set me free…

i will always love you till eternity

& wish all love,happiness & care

from others in a similar way like i do

it would happen i knew..

Hometown

Memories from past knockdown
on the doors of deep filled heart
after a long I visited my hometown
it feels like everyone is here to welcome
time never seemed to make its round
the city has changed its attire
however nothing much changed
since I’ve last around,

There is something so eerie about
an old empty playground once used to be alive
I can still feel faint whispers of the kids laughing from years before
Its not shiny & fun anymore,

I took a walk around on the famous streets
adjacent to a renovated building, once my school
I am trying to gather all fond memories
the narrow lanes are wide enough &
the shops are flaunting with modernity
yet the people are warm & hospitable
but I realised change is inevitable,

I left the city my city for self progression
for dreams with higher education
then distant far for disultory aspirations
although, I missed family, friends & fun
In order to get rid of my falsehood
I left everything for my own good,

When I let my thoughts to roam
I found myself far away from home
this only bringback sadness and pain
And then, I left my tears to drain
Now I left everything & back here
with a hope for magical rain.

Thanks for reading!🤗

Save the Date – II (Short Story)

Recap: Shubh has his own mindset about marriage and accompanying his best friend Tarun on his wedding with Surbhi, he reached Jaipur for destination wedding where he was introduced to Shruti by Surbhi like it happened for first time.

👉Click here to read the first part Save The Date – I

Take 3 Noida💬
“No, Mom I am not ready for marriage yet as I am not financially stable & looking to meet with some other tasks in life first..marriage isn’t one of them”consoling to my Mom on debate of marriage.
“Your father already had words with Mr.Mishra and we are going tomorrow to meet his family & daughter.She is beautiful,well cultured & also settled at Delhi with her job”My mom ordered with no choice to me as where there is father’s order there is no choice.
Finally I submitted myself in front of my parents and sitting besides a beautiful slim fair girl with all red cheeks & lips and cursing upon my fortune because for a moment I wanted to forget my all dreams and freedom for this angel.We were left alone for sometime in the room with pre-arranged tea-table & the situation reminded me of typical Barjatya’s Bollywood movies.
“I work & put up in Gurgaon…and you put up in Delhi right..although everything is closely connected there, like Delhi-NCR”..I broke the silence showing curiosity to know about her.
“Yes, but it’s too far from Gurgaon..it’s in Rohini with one room-mate & its near to my workplace too.There is no hope of coming down to Gurgaon ever for me” she encountered in one go like we were participants of any debate contest about connectivity of Delhi-NCR.
“who told you to shift the place?” I almost defended
“If things will get settle positively today then…”
“Then..what?” I cut her
“Then actually….Please do me a favour,reject me or say no for this proposal” she paused & almost broke my heart & alive my dead dreams again
“You want to marry with someone else,you can tell me..I’ll help you out”
“No..I am single & happy just looking forward to my dreams and not ready for taking responsibilities” She interrupted me & completed
“Hey! even I am not ready for taking responsibilities,came here on wish of my parents and you saved me..now its only you who could do something..the saviour” I said showing no interest on her & marriage with dead heart.
“Ok..I’ll try but I really like you as a person & we could be good friends” she told me like I am unaware of girls mentality..so superficial huh!!
“yeah, friends in some 25 mins….too early” I replied holding my all cupid conspiracies & moved out of so-called meeting room with her.

Take 4..Back to Jaipur💬
“Hey..How are you” I greeted her like meeting her for first time
“long time..” she replied loudly as the punjabi music is on its high,
“Somewhere two and half years…so your parents haven’t got a good match or else still cursing me” I said with witty smile
“I am really sorry, Shubh. I have no options to contact you even I didn’t imagine it could have led you to worse situation but somewhere its you who provoked me to lie” she defended her.

Take 3 Consequences
“So how’s the girl, what’s your decision,I’ll go with your opinion and not probing you to say yes”my father questioned & answered me
“Dad,the girl is nice and I thought at least it would be good to settle down the things with engagement for a while & I’ll marry her at right time”
“That’s what I thought too…thank you my son” he replied with a great smile

“How’s the boy..?” Mr Mishra to her daughter(Surbhi)
“Dad, he is of mysterious personality with stumble mind. I have seen him before with girls in Delhi even he came here under the pressure of his parents. He smokes, drinks & hide things from his parents so he is not of honest mindset too but he is positive for marriage…still I’ll do whatever you say..”she replied as usually in one go.
“No..never..I am happy,we came to know all this at right time…nevertheless we will wait for right time” he completed in consolidating note.

Take 5 Back in Jaipur again💬
“haahaa..Yes,I know..I am the only one of my kind..who believes in making dead dreams come alive” I giggled
“And I am the one who has equal share in this crime and making that dream came true”she replied pushing her hands towards me for friendship
and I am wishing if this moment will get still-stand here.
We visits all over Jaipur together for two days as i don’t want to lose these moments, it’s certainly a dream came true for me with increase in heart-beat, like I felt when the first time i saw her. Her eyes telling me that she has similar feelings for me too.

Take 6 Wedding Day
It’s the marriage day and the couple is looking as amazing as thier heavy designer wardrobes, i am very happy that they destined for each other because their marriage could be my wedding affair with Surbhi as I planned to propose her today.
Meanwhile when i was wandering in my colourful garden of thoughts i saw a devil coming right towards me devastating flowers of my dreams.
“Hey..Shubh beta(son),how are you..??Mr.Mishra surprised me with his sweet gesture.

“You indeed shubh (lucky) for me as my relation with my daughter strengthen more just because of your escape route plan on that day. Your generation is always looking towards imaginary future without caring the present.
Surbhi called me some days back when she met you here & let me know everything..Things could be easily settled down with your truth. You almost ruined your relation with your parents also & had a bad reputation in front of world nevertheless i feel today you are the best man for my daughter. You never spoke anything for her to anyone after so much happened..may be for love” Mr. Mishra in traditional family style completed his emotional speech in one go and i saw happy faces of our family…our family because my parents are already landed here too.
“I wish if my all dreams come true with you no matter if it’s in Rohini or Gurgaon,nobody will force you to move ever ..so can we settle down the things now & you haven’t offered me cookies on that day with tea”
I hold Surbhi’s hand and tried to propose her…
“because I sprinkled something over those cookies & apparently i fell in love with you so hadn’t offered those cookies otherwise washroom got occupied with you & only you that day” she replied and laugh riot blasted there.
“These are best sweets for sweet couple..we expected it from you, doesn’t matter we are happy that our wedding would be your wedding affair”Tarun & Shruti smiled together.
That day i realised that we have to live in present to save our future otherwise we will lose the valuable discounts offered to us by life.

Save the Date – I (Short Story)

It’s November& isn’t a sweet November yet, with no travel assignments, no girl around & aah.. weddings to attend in queue. Marriage, the word itself is all to scream anyone who is a free soul, loves his/her space, wanted to explore the world as the idea of getting married is the end to all liberties of life. The practice of caging an eligible bachelor itself starts from these weddings and if someone falls in age group of 25-30 should be cautious enough of attending any wedding as in Indian weddings you cannot expect any personal space because the oldies will show no mercy on your “Happily Unmarried” status & will fire back to back rounds of bullets like most personal questions on you with no escape route. They will scrutinise & qualify you for some third person without caring your concern.

Take 1..Delhi💬
“Your lipstick stains…”all of sudden I am back from wedding trauma as this sweet track gazed me towards my phone that is ringing ..Its Tarun
“Shubh, please be ready by 7 pm..I’ll pick you up and for god sake be ready means ready to fly..i am hoping for some mercy before my wedding” he said in so fast & furious way that I won’t be able to say hello to him.
“Mercy on wedding..Are you serious??”I replied & we laughed.
I show some mercy on him getting punctual for the first time in life and here we left Delhi for Tarun’s wedding. He is my best friend & will soon be getting trap in wedding affair and interestingly the arrangements of funeral to his freedom is arranged at Jaipur for a week long spree of functions and I am accompanying him in this traumatic cause for moral support. After a drive of 4 hrs we reached Jaipur.

Take 2..Jaipur💬
“Hi!! Brido..oh! Shruti, You’re getting more & more beautiful everyday…what’s the secret of this glow Ms.Fair & Lovely”…I said in a witty manner loaded with laughter blast & in less than a second found myself embraced between so many red-hot cruel eyes starring & asking for my exit plan.
“It is just like your bunk comments those are getting more annoying & irritating with everyday” she replied to save my exit & then slowly whispered in my ears “Don’t worry I’ll find one for you, glowing more than Fair n Lovely..”
It’s a lovely evening in Jaipur & I am expecting a buzzing night as its bachelors party of Tarun.
“Why Jaipur..I mean Tarun can manage to explore a Palace hotel of your choice in Delhi” I questioned Shruti
“Fool its not about fort or castle..it’s about heritage & its not about finding palaces, its about finding souls. Wedding happens once in lifetime so make it most memorable experience ” She replied philosophically.
“Lol!…Once in life..”I laughed sarcastically and she added “Actually its our dream”
“Tarun never told me about his wild dream of making memories..” I replied
“Our means me & my best friend Surbhi…she arranged everything and I’ll arrange her dream”Again philosophical Shruti
“Shubh..” Tarun shouting behind me
“What man…why are you shouting”..
“Oh! My god I thought you are still sleeping” he laughed and we followed to the venue of Bachelor’s Party that already spoiled the heart and soul of our friends sailed from Delhi because it looks like a Ladies sangeet(music) with allowance of men.
“What is this…you got engaged”Tarun inquired as I am wearing a ring on that special finger indicating red signals for old aunties to avoid their unwanted questions about my wedding status.
“yeah!! I am and I am not a monk like you..falling in love then travelled odd 250 kms. away to attend his own wedding”I replied with agitation and sense of no mercy.
“You ass-hole..enjoy its my Bachelor’s party”he said stressing on Bachelor word
“Tarun…I don’t mind enjoying but please don’t call this Mahila Sangeet(Ladies Music) a bachelors party…for God sake look at the pale faces of your friends from Delhi”I said in serious tone.
“Give me ten minutes Bro!”Tarun smiled like he will wind up everything
like we Indians manage everything on jugaad(alternate solutions),some punjabi songs followed with drinks are enough for fetching the treat hunger of friends.
While people are busy in enjoying vibes of punjabi music I kept my corner meanwhile Shruti waved me & calling my name loudly..
“Shubh..She is Surbhi undergoing similar project as yours so I thought you’re the right person for her to help on it..”Shruti introduced us & left…like somebody is introducing me first time to her.

There is always a first time, for everything provided it comes in life for once..

Read further in next part that will disclose the first time moment between Shubh & Shruti..till then Save the date!

Something I never thought before…


After a long I enjoyed something while writing and I hope you will like it too.

Relationships are the most delicate thing to handle in life, it needs proper balance of love, care & understanding to cherish its importance.

You can never create great relationships in a day, it needs daily construction and there is no need to solve everything in your own way in relationship as there are few things stays better if unresolved.
Share your thoughts

Something i have never thought before
about your persona of timeless beauty
these mysterious perplex eyes, engulf with
thousands of treasures inside
the more I try to evacute the secrets
the more I reach out to doors that
silently letting me helpless
on bay of clueless fragile shore..


Something i have never thought before
about the meaning of your unsaid words
the enchanting language of love, strucked
on the soft petals of your lips
the more I try to kiss this experience
the more I reach out to bitterness
of unsolved enigma of life
beneath the reality of truth
deep down emotions found died…


Something i never thought before
about the relations that stays long
souls stitched to one heart
breath, live and exist distant far
the more we try to stay apart
the more closer here we are
in the moments and memories
cherished toghether,
I am safe somewhere
in the silent eyes & sweet smiles forever,


Something i never thought before
relations aren’t about finding everything
few things stays better unresolved.

The Last Message

It is one of the coldest night of December and I was intensifying the sharpness of winter with single malt and flavoured cigar. I used to have such fun when feeling contented from the bottom of heart. After 4 years she sent the message and I read it many a times, no I am not happy because she messaged me but the reason of joy is that I replied her and set myself free from an unknown guilt.

4 Years Ago

Enigma

It was a fairly an expected result as my sixth sense strikes right on target at worst times. My friends were used to advise me that when two opposite gender spending most of their time together it’s not a relation of friendship, it’s a relation that silently remove the word “friend” with foolish feeling of four letters sounds attractively as love.

There are many things between a guy & a girl beyond those four letters called love…Well! I always believe that there is a space in Girl friend and Girlfriend…in fact we like to spend most of our time with a person who offers a much needed space in our general life and this active space makes any relationship breath lasts long but what if we don’t realize about this space…
So many questions are wandering over my 3 gms. of heavy weight random access memory, people called it mind……

The End.

“Sorry but it’s better to say bye…it’s good for you and me too”…she slapped hard with her words.
And the story ends with that last message of love..

However I am mindless as I used to believe it’s either a start or restart but there is nothing like an end……so how come will I think of losing the things that fits in theory of end, maybe it happens when you switched off all the sources of light in room especially when it’s all dark in outside world too…

It’s a dark room with unspecified mysterious abandonment everywhere & a cloy smile over my face along with incessant flow of weird thoughts at somewhere in backdrop of chaotic mind & all of sudden a blink of micro red light from my phone signalled me to check the unread messages that took a harsh end offered with an unexpected space in life….

“Sorry but it’s better to say bye…it’s good for you and me too”…she slapped hard with her words.
And the story ends with that last message of love..
I am blanked clueless…because it came from someone I admire most for the first time in my life maybe because I respect her. You can love everyone but you cannot respect everyone, once you start respecting someone the love would be eternal itself…that’s what I used to believe.
Is it so easy to break a bond instantly without even a reconsideration…a bond mounted long on the foundation of trust & faith embraced with unconditional love?

It’s hard to swallow but I have to because it’s her wish. She had already made her mind and took the conclusion whereas me……
I was thinking…

Why I always kept my tongue off….?
Why I always cared her so much…..?

Why I trust him so much?

Beginning.

“Hi, I am Raghav…”I introduced myself with a low pitched excited voice
“Hi, I am Shreya” she replied graciously….
That’s how the story begins but every story doesn’t belongs to an end and the best part of my kind of version is that I never wanted to hurt anyone so I normally ended up with depleted arrows on my back. I met her during my training sessions of 3 months and didn’t realised how she became my friend and then the best friend who kept my all secrets, daily chaos…girls…parties everything.

She had deep beautiful brown eyes with beautiful innocent nature that easily attracts anyone towards her sweetness. The conspiracy of cupid elements happened with me and I ignored it off very well however I came closer instead of going away from her mystical aura. She is very different that’s her magic.

I became opportunist and begun helping out her in every assignment despite of bitter fact that I never had a very good past records with girlfriends but this time things were happening by their own even without my concern. It all happened with cherishing moments that we came closer to each other and with the each passing phase of time. I thought to make her fall in love I should make her happy as she looks adorably sweet when she smiles and she smiles when she was happy. It was an instant change that I never expected with myself…
A gentleman came out of me from nowhere who was anticipating for her happiness without any expectation in return.

Fortunately, I received a wonderful offer from the other company and I accepted the offer half heartily. On my last day of training I gave her a souvenir of my friendship so that she remembers me & she did.

I was lying on my bed and memories were all around my mind…. suddenly my phone beeped with blue light.
“Thanks for all your help and I missed all the things that made me smiled all the times. The souvenir you gave me will always motivates me towards growth and in return I promise you to be remain in touch forever…didn’t know what’s this but I am missing you”
That’s the magic moment for me & that changed me and my life for forever.

Trust.

I came out of my dreams into the hell of reality. It’s been 10 days since I contacted her, I thought I should at least let her know about everything, about the truth so I tried reaching her but she didn’t pick. It’s all about the perceptions I called her so that I will convey the real things as I was hoping that she may understand but I was wrong. She is so close yet so far and no reason to stay is always good reason to leave.

Once again, I was dwelling into the ocean of memories, the misunderstandings that were created by me by being a gentleman always. I thought as I was leaving her, there should be a thread that would connect us and it was my dearest Aniket and somehow it proved a beautiful thought for me but a worst nightmare I ever saw.

Aniket is the dearest one but he did not like Shreya from the beginning days of our training, he used to say that she is not innocent but a very talented actress whereas on the other hand Shreya hates him more than he hates her and what I wanted to do is a miracle in itself..

I connected two of worst enemies into friends as I didn’t want to lose either a friendship for love or love for friendship. With my ample efforts they became friends. I wanted a to create group of friends as I believed him so much that I never ever imagined the real intentions behind his shrew mind. I made them friends and always tried to keep everything aligned on same page with each other.

With the passage of time he made his connection closer to her, he does whatever I used to did for her and tends to show me that he was only doing all this for me simultaneously on the other side somewhere it results into fights between Shreya & Me on every little fronts.

Time passes by like unknown roller coaster of strange misunderstandings between us, long night chats ended up into formal greetings and a bond of love swiftly becomes friend zoned

Conclusion

After a long, one day we met for day outing organized by Aniket wherein he was trying to show me something else that took a long to understand. We were together however I was not with them. She was behaving very formal with me and Aniket has already showed me everything with this outing wherein I was really feeling out.

We dropped her home and he insisted me to spent night at his home and initiated a weird conversation.
“Did you really like her???…I mean you are not looking serious now…” he inquired
“Why are you asking me this question again and again now days…?” I replied
“I feel she is really a good girl and it’s been so many months, people are in queue for her..
Let them try too…” he said, smiled and continued..
It’s about you, just for this I am saying so….you are a good person and I feel you really like her so now it’s time to show it to her, at least we got to know whether she has same feeling for you or not “ he completed
There were several volcanoes curdled and about to blast into my mind but I kept myself cool and I replied…
“I like her very much…I cared her…I wanted her to be always happy…I prefer her things over anything in this world…if this resembles to like someone then.. yes, I like her….what’s there in telling her”
I knew what was going in his mind by this time…..why he is always hiding her messages with me and wanted a screenshots of her messages in the name of friendship…why he always talking about her…why he always inquiring me whether I was talking to her…..why he always says she is a diplomatic girl….why he let me out of his home when talking to a mysterious girl…everything is crystal clear…and I made my way to my place.

The next day he told her that last night we had some discussion and Raghav told me that he likes you and you’re different from other girls he ever had in relationship in past and I also feel that you’re perfect for him, he will never turn down from you like he had in past with others because this time he is feeling this as real love.

He placed his card so safely that it creates a question over someone’s image whereas showing himself as a gentleman & friend at both ends, doing this was so safe that it creates a trust on girl as well as it shows the care for his friend too.

She texted me everything and didn’t pick my calls.

She took a step and decided to quit with a person who always stand beside her in tough times. I guessed the reason and even I told her the same without introducing her Aniket’s part as its beyond my perception and I thought as if she has some care for my friendship, she would definitely understand everything but I was wrong, neither she nor he cared.


I called Aniket the next day as I had decided to have an end.

“I had argued with Shreya and ended up with fight over a small issue” I said

“These days you guys fight a lot; she has addressed the same thing too & she did not wanted to talk to you”

“I think you should take a break or quit here and provide a better space to this unnamed relationship” He replied & continued  

“It’s a small thing & happens to me every third day…go ahead & look for new aim, field is all yours” He paused with not so deserving smile & added

“I was always saying that this girl is mysterious and she just had fun with you” he completed

I questioned him “Will you go ahead and quit this meaningless friendship with her for your friend, maybe she will have fun with you too”

He was picking his bag and making his way from my room without answering to my question.

“You have done so much for me that I will never pay off, please do not help anyone like this from now onwards. Your silence has answered my question and there is nothing more left in our friendship too…by the way I have paid off everything to you too and you will realised it soon” I interrupted him

I have already done so many efforts to tell her the truth but every time I gained strength I thought whether she will believe or not as she is not the same girl I met , not the same girl with whom I wanted to stay forever however all I wanted her to be happy always and somewhere I knew that she will return someday.


“Hello…..Are you lonely…I am here to be your friend” A very passionate voice came to my ear via my television as its already late hours of night to think something wild.. I smiled again…
I made my mind and decided to keep my way away from both of them because somethings are beyond love…. It is not easy to understand.

The last Message

Shreya: Hi!

Just wanted to speak to you for a moment…I am getting married

Raghav: Great!

Congratulations!…Wish you a very happy married life ahead.

Shreya: I want to say something…

Raghav: I am sorry…I have already listened a lot earlier.

Once again congratulations & stay blessed!

Shreya: I am sorry… for everything that has happened between us.

I know that I was wrong.

I realised it but then it was very late and you never tried to clear the

things lately, behaved abruptly and went off…I really felt bad.

I am sorry again!

Raghav: It’s all right & I am sorry too..

Maybe things would be different if I dealt with patience however

there is no point of discussing those things now.

Shreya: You are always a nice guy, thank you for the beautiful time &

memories. Have a beautiful life ahead!

Stay blessed!

Raghav: Heyy! I never had any grudges with you in fact its all respect.

You did whatever you thought right but remember one thing…

Always believe in your partner and do not take any decision in

life under the influence of others. Have a great life ahead!

Good Bye!

Shreya: Bye! Hope to see you again.
