Tum

Sulagti zameen par moam ki moorat, Tum.

Ghutan ki raaton main hawa ka jhonka, Tum.

Sookhe hoton par bheegi mitti ki khusboo, Tum.

Ret ki aandhi main meri aankhon ki palken, Tum.

Patjhad ki rahon par patton ki rangat, Tum.

Saagar ki leheron main sahare ka tinka, Tum.

Akeli sharmati parchai ki sangini, Tum.

Jagti ghabrayi neendon ka sapna, Tum.

Dhund ki subah main ugta suraj, Tum.

Sard tanhayee main makhmali odhni, Tum.

Safed kagaz par shayari ki likhayi, Tum.

Dard ke sharbat mai khuskhus ki thandak, Tum.

Behti nadiyon main chamakti dhoop, Tum.

Oonche parbat par umadta badal, Tum.

Mere sanson ke chalne ki manzil, Tum.

Mujhme mai ka aadhaar, Tum.

Tum.

  2. @Khushee: Thanks

    @Grafx: Hmmm. I thought that hindi might be troublesome to a few people. But I thought of this in hindi, so it had to be written that way.

  4. @Grafx: If you want to blame yourself for it... I can't stop that... though I'd rather you did not. But I suspect your `aami bangali mei to' has nothing to do with your forgetting hindi. But forgetting 6 languages? That's a lot of languages... how come you picked up so many?

  5. vell.. i come from this nomadic family who cannot refrain from picking up their beds and waling every 2 years no matter WHERE they are.. so therefore i had to learn quite a few languages..
    and if i dont speak one for a while then i tend to fall over everytime..funnily enough i havent forgotten my bengali

  6. Hmmm... its good that you are familiar with so many... I feel a language once learnt, never really leaves you completely. Anyway if I ever get around to finishing a bangla poem I am now sure I'd find a reader atleast :)

    (A bit pointless to ask Tum kahan ho?)

  9. @Neha: Qualify the `Tum' you asked the question to. Is it the `Tum' in the post, or is it me? *Sigh! Vanity!*
