Dedication Time

We used to have this "Request" stall in School fete where we used to request songs to be played for our friends, seniors and teachers.

That tradition persisted for really long and most of the Josephites would agree, that we still feel like dedicating
songs to each other, or to our friends and teachers.

It was a wonderful thing which we followed then and I thought of continuing it further by dedicating
songs to my friends, family or anyone who deserved it, on my blog which I had started a few years ago.

But, unfortunately, the blog stood idle as after one round of dedication, I kinda felt short of
ideas, songs, and creativity (Yeah!! Kinda Writer's Block).

To revive the old tradition, I thought of dedicating songs/poetry/lines to a few people who deserved
dedications and rembrances this year.

This is the first dedication to all the people with whom I loved conversing, and loved listening to them. Time has now changed, we talk less, but the friendship still is becoming stronger and mightier.

To Jincy, Piya, Ami, Muggs, CDMA this one's for you. Whenever I talk to you, or meet you, this is exactly what it feels like.

ek puraanaa mausam lautaa yaad bhari puravaai bhi
aisaa to kam hi hotaa hai vo bhi ho tanahaai bhi

yaadon ki bauchhaaron se jab palakein bhigane lagati hain
kitani saundhi lagati hai tab maanjhi ki rusavaai bhi


do do shaqlein dikhati hain is bahake se aaiine mein
mere saath chalaa aayaa hai aap kaa il saudaai bhi


Khaamoshi kaa haasil bhi ik lambi sii Khaamoshi hai
un ki baat suni bhi hamane apni baat sunaai bhi


-Gulzaar Saab

The wonderful times when we played, roamed about carelessly. To those wonderful times, when grown up lot seemed foolish and we, as kids thought, were the kings of our times.
This one's to Sunny, Pawan, Pallavi, Nandita, Michelle, Adiba, Tulip, Diba, Shilpa, Huma, Gibi, Piya, Ami, Priyanka.

chalo naa bhatake
lafange kuuchon mein
luchchi galiyon ke
chowk dekhein
sunaa hai vo log
chuus kar jin ko vaqt ne
raastein mein phenkaa tha
sab yahin aake bas gaye hain
yeh chhilake hain zindagii ke
in kaa ark nikaalo
ki zahar in kaa
tumhare jismon mein
zahar paalate hain
aur jitne vo maar degaa
chalo naa bhatake
lafange kuuch0n mein


-Gulzaar Saab


A dedication to people who stay far away, seldom visit me and to those who are out of touch..

kabhii yuun bhi to ho
dariyaa kaa saahil ho
puure chaand kii raat ho
aur tum aao


kabhii yuun bhi to ho
ye baadal aisaa tuut ke barase
mere dil ki tarah milane ko
tumhaaraa dil bhi tarase
tum nikalo ghar se


kabhi yuun bhi to ho
tanahaai ho, dil ho
boondein ho, barasaat ho
aur tum aao


kabhi yuun bhi to ho...

- Javed Saab


To all the people who are never gonna come back from where they have gone.

shaam se aankh mein nami si hai
aaj phir aap ki kami si hai

dafn kar do hamein ki saans mile
nabz kuchh der se thami si hai

vaqt rehataa nahin kahin chhupkar
is ki aadat bhi aadami si hai


-Gulzaar Saab

tum aaj hansate ho hans lo mujh par ye aazamaaish naa baar baar hogii
main jaantaa hun mujhe Khabar hai ki kal fazaa Khushagavaar hogii


rahe muhabbat mein zindagi bhar rahegi ye kashamakash baraabar
naa tumako qurabat mein jit hogi naa mujhako furaqat mein haar hogii


hazaar ulfat sataaye lekin mere iraadon se hai ye mumakin
agar sharaafat ko tumane chhedaa to zindagii tum pe vaar hogii


-Khwaja Mir Dard
