Dard-E-Dil

1.     आज उसके लिखे कागज़ के टुकड़ो को राख कर दिया
मेज पर रखी उसकी तस्वीर को भी अपने से दूर कर दिया
मिटा दूंगा हर चीज़ जो उसकी याद दिलाती है
पर समझ नहीं आता कैसे मिटा दूं वो यादें
जो मेरे दिल में आज भी बसर करती हैं
दर्द-ऐ-दिल बयां नहीं होता है
चाहूं न चाहूं मेरी नज़रें आज भी उसका इंतज़ार करती हैं
नहीं मानता की वो तो अब ओझल हो गयी है
दिल को उम्मीद है की वो सब कुछ छोड़ मेरे पास आ जाएगी!!

2.     मझधार से निकाल कर जिसे पार ले कर आया
उसे खुद पर यकीन करना सिखाया
उसकी सोच को नयी दिशा दी
साथ उसका कितना हसीन था
सोचा था वो हमेशा मेरे साथ रहेगा
क्या पता था कि वो ही हमें मझधार में छोड़ चलेगा
मझधार से निकाल कर जिसे पार ले कर आया
आज उसी ने कर दिया मुझको पराया!

3.     कहना तो बहुत कुछ चाहता थे तुझसे
पर मेरे दिल ने रोक लिया
जानता है कि तुझे रुला कर
ये भी बेचैन हो जाएगा!

4.     आज भी तेरी तस्वीर दिल में बसाए तेरा दीदार करते हैं
तेरे हाथों की मेहँदी की खुशबू  मेरे घर को गुलज़ार करती हैं
तुम मुझे छोड़ कर चली गयी, फिर भी
मेरी ज़िन्दगी तो अभी भी तेरा ही नाम लिया करती है!!

5.     तुमको बेइंतेहा चाहा हमने
तेरी मोहब्बत आदत बन गयी
तेरे जाने के बाद पसरी तन्हाई कहती है
भूल जाऊं तुमको, पर कैसे
आदतें बदलती हैं कहाँ आसानी से…

6.     दिल ने जिसे हमेशा अपना समझा
आज वो किसी और का होने जा रहा है
क्यूँ होता है ये मोहब्बत में
जिसे चाह बेपन्हा आज वो गैर का घर बसाने जा रहा है!!

Hindi Poem: Khud Ko haara mehsoos karta hoon!

न जाने क्यूँ ऐसा प्रतीत होता है
जीवन एक दौड़ के सिवा कुछ भी नहीं है
हर व्यक्ति एक धावक है
वो जीतने के लिए कुछ भी कर सकता है
ये दौड़ है – औरों से आगे निकलने की
पर इस दौड़ को कोई अंत नहीं है
शायद इसी लिए आज हमारे मुख पर कृत्रिम मुस्कान है
आस-पास सब कुछ अनैसर्गिक है
स्वार्थपरता इतनी बढ़ गयी है
की अपने आगे हम किसी को देख ही नहीं पाते
खुद की सम्पन्नता से ज्यादा हमें औरों की असफलता की ख़ुशी है
किसी और का दर्द, दुःख, मजबूरी हमें सताता नहीं है
गैरों की बात क्या, इस दौड़ में अपने पीछे छूट रहे हैं
और हम अंधों की तरह माला के मोती तोड़ते जा रहे हैं
अनुराग और अदब भूल गए हैं
रिश्ते नाते सफलता की सीढ़ी के लिए कुर्बान कर रहे हैं
पैसे कमाने की भूख ने हमें भावशून्य कर दिया है
ये सामाजिक पतन का सूचक है
नैतिकता अब हमारे यहाँ घर करती नहीं
यथार्थ जीवन में स्नेह एवं भावना खो गयी है
एहिक जीवन की चाह में हम तन्हा रह गए हैं
समय के अभाव में सारे बंधन कमज़ोर पड़ रहे हैं
इतना खोने की बाद भी हमें कहाँ जाना है इसका इल्म नहीं है
पीछे मुड़ कर देखता हूँ तो सोचता हूँ
इतना पाने के बाद भी जीवन नीरस है
इस आप-धापी में कागज़ के टुकड़े तो बहुत जुटाए
तमन्ना थी सच्ची ख़ुशी पाने की पर वो कहीं रूठ गयी
अब तो बस अकेलापन और उदासीनता मन में बसर करती है
भटक गया हूँ सांसारिक सुख को ग्रहण करने की लालसा में
मैं शतरंज की बिसात का वो राजा हूँ जो अपनों को खो चुका है
अपना दायित्व और कर्तव्य न निभा पाने का दर्द
अब शूल की तरह कलेजे को भेदता है
चाह कर भी अब हालात बदल नहीं सकता हूँ
व्यर्थ के लौकिक आनंद में अनासक्त हो गया हूँ
इतना पाने के बावजूद इस दौड़ में खुद को हारा महसूस करता हूँ
खुद को हारा महसूस करता हूँ….. खुद को हारा महसूस करता हूँ…..

An Ode to Teachers!

Today is an especial day

This is what all I have to say

To all the Gurus’

You have been guiding light in dark alley

It’s your blessings that have eased my way

Through times of highs and lows

You have made me what I am

Instilling the self belief and confidence

To realize my goals

Let me use to this opportunity

To acknowledge and express gratitude

Coz of you I have been beatitude!

Wishing all the teachers in my life………………

“Guru Govind dono khade,kake lagoon paay

Balihari guru apne,Govind diyo batay.”

Humour at its best!

Lesson 1: Naked Wife

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.

After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks,…

“Who was that?” “It was Bob the next door neighbor,” she replies. “Great!” the husband says, “Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?”

Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Lesson 2

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish” “Me first! Me first!” says the administration clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.” Poof! She’s gone. “Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii,relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.” Poof! He’s gone. “OK, you’re up,” the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”

Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say.

Lesson 3

A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said,”Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest removed his hand. But,changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest apologized “Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.” Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”

Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Lesson 4

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him,”Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?” The crow answered: “Sure, why not.” So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.

A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.

Lesson 5: Power of Charisma

A turkey was chatting with a bull “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.

Lesson 6

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Moral of the story:
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend
3. And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!

Corruption: The Bane of India and Anna Hazare

The support for Anna Hazare is growing with every passing day. The people have simmering anger and they are letting it out this time. The common sentiment is “Aakhiri Ladai hai, Chodhenge Nahin“.

It is time to wake up from deep slumber and demand corruption free India. As always I will harp on the role of youth as we form the backbone of this nation. We are going to be there in the decades to come and is our onus to decide as what type of India do we want.

This is a poem on which I stumbled from WAKE UP INDIA.

Corruption is spreading its roots,
Indiscipline is what it includes.
Usually it takes the form of bribe,
The word is enough in itself for the happening to describe.
It fills one’s mind with greed,
Thus makes the person a broken reed.
It fights against and kills the truth,
Changing the real meaning of forsooth.
It never does the work for humanity,
And leads a man to the path of profanity.
It makes a person blind,
He forgets the true path to find.
One wants his life to be luxurious,
For this, he chose the way of corruption instead of being tedious.
It makes one impatient so soon,
It is totally a bane not a boon.
So, lets take a pledge and raise a voice against corruption,
As it is one of the biggest threats to the nation!

Come On India…. Chak De!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s official: Women use their gender like a weapon!

 “Because I’m a woman.” That’s the standard refrain when women want to avoid doing something they don’t like!

Scientists have proven that women frequently use their sex as a get-out clause for everything from crying to their failure to take the bins out.

A survey found that 88 per cent of respondents had used their sex as an excuse at some point, while more than half admitted they did so regularly.

Driving was the most common scenario, with 67 per cent blaming their poor parking on being a woman, reports the Daily Mail. More than half of women blamed their gender on their inability to catch spiders in the bath — while slightly fewer than half used it to avoid carrying heavy items.

The news follows Katie Price’s [ Images ] admission in court last week that she had swerved while driving her pink horsebox because she was a ‘typical woman driver’.

The top ten situations in which women are likely to use their gender as an excuse:

Parking the car (67 per cent of women polled)
Catching insects (56 per cent)
Carrying heavy items (48 per cent)
Opening Jars (40 per cent)
Avoiding confrontation (35 per cent)
DIY (28 per cent)
Taking the rubbish out (19 per cent)
Sporting performance (15 per cent)
Navigation (11 per cent)
Crying (6 per cent)

Sarah Heath, of MyCelebrityFashion.co.uk, said, “Whilst it was surprising to find just how many women do use the excuse, it’s important to bear in mind that the majority admitted to doing so in a ‘jokey’ manner.”

Nanhe’s First Night!

It has been almost an year since Nanhe is working in a Software Firm. Today is his debut. A debut of full night at office. The Board Members (PL/PM) have gone for picnic. Wow!! 😛 😛
So the team is playing without any officials. There are captains who are trying to motivate their respective teams. Nanhe is independent player though :)
He is neither developer nor tester. He is Configuration Manager.

So, Nanhe has decided to give you regular update on the same 😛
Hope Nanhe will have nice time @ office. He is alone with 16 GUYS. Oh My God, Nanhe loves the company of guys. :) 😉

9:30pm: All guys are charged up. Nanhe has dobne his work so he is free for some time. Rest are busy in closing and testing the defects. Oh what is this. A couple of guys are playing computer game. Well, it is a good stress buster.
ha ha The AC’s will not be working. So security has provided 4 table fans.
Nanhe is ready to have great party tonight. Company ke paise par aish. Pel ke chicken khaayega lagta hai aaj!!

9:50pm: Nanhe has just read the HR Policies regarding the reimbursement for working late. Total food reimbursement is Rs 150/- So, Nanhe will try his level best to eat worth this amount at least. Dinner is being planned. Lets’ see when will he go!

10:10pm: Leaving for Dinner. :)

11:50pm: Back from Dinner. Had awesome food and gossip.
Had Chicken Roast, Chicken Moghlai, Chicken Tikka and Chicken Biryani along with cold drinks and roti. Finally a full Meetha Paan. Yummie!! 😛
Everyone was surprised seeing our bloody idiot and slim Nanhe eating so much. Saale ne poora Paisa Vasoola!!!!!!
There were gossips:
1> Incentives mostly arriving with next month’s salary
2> There will be pay hike but only variable component. Thus there will be hardly any change in in-hand part.
3> College and Hostel Bhaks.
4> The role of PL/PM in project.
5> Nanhe’s entertainment

12:37am: Nanhe just called her sister in Hyderabad and wished her birthday. Did some timepass. The team is busy with onsite calls, defects and testing. Nanhe is having fun. His girlfriend promised to call in 5 minutes an hour ago. Nanhe is still searching for that watch which his gf is referring.
Arre yeh kya. Nanhe ke liye kaam aa gaya. Bahut Khoob.

1:20am: Nanhe finished with the job of branching. Now busy reading few articles on rediff. Few guys are yawning while few are trying their best to resolve the defects. Nanhe has entertained few of them with his pakau shayris.

2:15am: Time is passing by very fast. Nanhe is busy reading newspapers. There was a song session in last hour. Nanhe played songs like Kabza, Lakshya, few sad songs. There was entertainment from songs like Emotional Attyachar Gaali waala version, Sutta etc. All are enjoying and cracking jokes from time to time. Nanhe tried to sleep but woke up after 15 minutes.

3:30am: A latest dump was imported. Pointed a new application on that. Gave some Errors but now its hopefully resolved. Few guys have slept. This sleep is damn infectious. Nanhe is also feeling very sleepy. He must take a nap now. Now it is getting challenging for everyone to awake and complete work.

4:50am: Nanhe had awesome sleep for 70 minutes. Duw to some error, he was called as NSG for 26/11  by his project mates. The error was resolved in 10 minutes. Meanwhile, Kattu was dancing to reduce stress and others were laughing and enjoying. More than 5 people have gone to sleep.

5:50am: A hot tea was brought and Nanhe listened to few good songs on his cell. There is no work for him now except for support. :)

7am: It appears that all the work by developers is done. Some Testing is remaining only. Half of guys are already slept and will now take leave.

7:55am: Nanhe is finally leaving.

8:40am: Nanhe has reached home. Now lot of work to do. He has to meet Rao, Satan, finish with the court work, shopping, etc. Lets hope Nanhe is able to finish all his tasks today.

Have a great day ahead………….. :) :)

Frustrated and Pissed Off!!!

Nanhe’s sisters’ wedding is scheduled next week. But he is so unlucky that he would reach only couple of days before the marriage.
Reason: He is not getting leave from the office.
Few days before when he told his boss that he will take leave; his boss readily agreed but then days before she told that he won’t be able to get leave before 30th. This was because, a big and critical release is scheduled on 5th and the team will require support late night. Nanhe was very upset on this and requested to approve leave. But then in this time of recession, you need to be very careful before pushing things. Right?

Nanhe took his disappointment in his stride. Traditionally, a brother plays huge part in sister’s wedding but not Nanhe…. Well this is part and parcel of life!!! :(
Nanhe was asked to come on Saturday’s and public holidays. For last couple of week, frustration has started to creep in. Mainly because he was not having that much work. Last week he has filled more than 15 hours of idle time in his timesheet. Though he is available for full time and does not leaves his place; yet fill the idle time in timesheet. This was the boss told him. While the boss must be enjoying weekends with family, Nanhe is coming to office; sitting for 6-8 hours and leaving without doing any work. While his teammate will wonder why is he coming when their is not much work for him at this point of time. Yesterday, this happened for continuously third week.

As Nanhe was staring his PC; he was just getting frustrated. He was supposed to leave for wedding on Saturday but he was asked to work. He came to office and was doing work. What work??
1> Reading Newspaper
2> Surfing Websites
3> Writing Blogpost
4> Team Lunch
5> Nap for 10 minutes
6> Talking on phone
At a time when whole family of Nanhe is busy with preparation for wedding and slogging in the heat, Nanhe has so much “work”@office. A sister’s wedding is once in a lifetime and this release could have been handled by his boss as well. But she has “too many problems” at home. She is making him realize that she will have to slog for 4 days when Nanhe will not be there. Nanhe was so stymied that he was telling his friend,

“Bhenchod bola that ki kaam hai kaam hai to leave nahi milegi. Yahan aa kar sirf hilane ka kaam kar raha hoon. Aaj main nikal gaya hota to kam se kam 27th ka function to attend kar paata. Wo saali door rehti hai to mera problem hai kya. Ghar mein ghanta problem hai uske. Sab bahene thonk rahi hai m****chod. Itna yaha aa kar marao aur uske baad bharo Idle time. Main to maarne waala hoon uski. Naukri is not important than family. Uski Maa ka………. Kaam ho to samjhh mein aata hai but sirf apne faayde aur aaraam ke liye wo mujhe istemaal kar rahi hai. R****”

It is very true that his boss should have shown this much consideration that this is his real sister’s wedding.
Now he will reach home as the “Chief-Guest”.

He is so bummed out thinking that at a time when his father is looking for helping hand, he is doing nothing and is just watching all this helplessly. He has simmering anger within him and I just hope that he is able to control that else…

But whatever be the case this has given him a lesson that be very political and diplomatic in office. That is the only way out else you will be exploited always……………
