A few attempts at the delicate art of shayari!!

Here I'll try to put up my half baked attempts at the delicate art of shayari. You may like it, you may not, but do let me know what you think of it!! And yeah, I'll be updating it regularly!! :)


muddate guzar jaye par yeh nigahe unhi ki intezaar karengi......
kaise bhulenge unhe, jab mehmaan banke woh roz aati rahengi!!


aaj waqt ki nazaakat ki kuch aisi hai, ke lafz aaj khul na paayenge.....
jin aankhon mein kabhi hum zindagi dekhte the, woh abhi humein na dekh paayenge!!


zindagi mein khudgarz hona humne na seekha,
dosto ke khatir jaan lutana hi hia seekha,
parwah to hum unki karte hai, jinpe qurbaan ho jaaye,
jaan to hum un pe dete hai, jo humari jaan ban jaaye!!


ashko se zindagi ko seecha hai humne,
dard se rishta kabhi toda na humne,
bewaafai se ab kya kahe, yaari khub nibhai hai usne,
jab koi nahi tha, to inhi ka saath paaya humne!!

sometimes you need the heart to feel the pain and not necessarily have to go through it. Great work bro...
do one thing: add your new stuffs here only !! carry on...

Oh well...maybe Shaayri is underrated in the global phemomena that we call music today. How many great songs do you hear with good Shaayri? The great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan made some progress in this regard but generally speaking, Shaayri has been dying a slow death.

A striking example is how Jagjit Singh "Jaggu" practically murdered Hazaaron Khwaahishein Aisii. I have never been able to excuse Jaggu for making a mockery out of Mukesh's "Kahiin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye" a few years ago. That man, has no shame !

You try your best to keep this pristine form of art alive. Each one of us can contribute in their own way to make a difference - I always believe that.
