Yeh Mumbai shahar hai..

A poem on "Mumbai"..:)

Yeh Mumbai shahar hai..

yahan chote chote gharon mein,
palte sapne ameer hai..
karodon sapne bidhte hai,
khulti kuch hi ki taqdeer hai..

yeh mumbai shahar hai..

Yahan ke footpath par
zindagi basti hai..
Yahan ki bastiyon mein
ummeed-parasti hai..

yeh mumbai shahar hai..

yahan sadakeinn chowdi hai.
waqt ki kuch kami hai..
yahan chunautiyan hai,
mauke b yahin hai..

yeh mumbai shahar hai..

jahaazon ka aana jaana,
ba-dastur jaari hai.
Iss shahar ko jaise,
insomnia ki bimari hai.

yeh mumbai shahar hai..

Iski tareekh mein,
chotein behisaab hain.
Samundar iska hamdard,
lehrein jaise ilaaj hai.

yeh mumbai shahar hai..

shahar toh hai,
bass shahar toh nahi..
raatein yahan jaagti hai,
bas din dopahar nahin.

Yeh mumbai shahar hai,
yeh khwabon ka shajar hai.
Shajar => Tree
Ummeed-parasti => Worship of hope

Hello everybody! It has been a long time! In this piece, I wanted to talk about myself. As many of you would have observed or knew that I am an introvert or a not-so-social person. Poetry is a perfect outlet for people like me. Hope you like this.  P.S. तालाब is a metaphor मैं तालाब हूँ| सतत बहना मेरा मिज़ाज नहीं, न मैं चट्टानों से लड़ने का दावा करता हूँ| मैं दूसरे नदियों या की तालाबों से भी, ज्यादा मिलता जुलता नहीं हूँ! मेरे ख्याल में नदी खुदको , बड़ी खूबी से market करती है ! प्रस्ताव, पानी की आवाज़ और पर्वतों से बहने का दो दृश्य दिखाकर, आकर्षित करती है! और दूसरी और देखो तो मैं , निशब्द, अपने आप में एक संसार | न कोई आकर्षण, न कोई अदा, मेरा परिचय ही चुप्पी है| कहने को है बहुत कुछ मुझे भी, बस जुर्रत नहीं कहने की| बेचने नहीं आता मुझे, तो तसल्ली के लिए कह देता हूँ की बिकाऊ नहीं हूँ| मेरे तेवर से तुम्हें, जलन की बू आ रही होगी, पानी का बना हूँ, पर  मुझमें  ज़रा सी जलन  है  | शायद जलन नहीं है, शायद नदी जैसा बन्ने की, एक तीव्र ललक है|

Movie review: Sunsilk Real FM

So, this was a blogger meet cum screening conducted by Indiblogger and Sunsilk. The movie, which was screened, was Sunsilk Real FM, this was inspired by Sunsilk. Initially, I expected it to be a yet another branding exercise by Sunsilk, but my views were very different after its screening. The important thing is the movie focuses on the values of brand and not the products. The story revolves around the girl name Ria. Ria is a very normal urban girl. Her dad is a Managing Director of a radio station named Real FM.  One fine day, the staff of the radio station threatens to resign, if there appraisals, which were due, are not brought in. But, the company has suffered a severe loss and hence the appraisals were not possible. The entire staff resigns and the MD suffers a heart arrest. Instead of feeling helpless and complaining, Ria takes it upon herself to run the radio station. She and her friends manage to pull it off, for the special Independence day. The movie also
