I Shall Not Live In Vain!

A Long drive,

Winds battling speed,

Rains drenching your soul.

And these words, these beautiful words glorify your thoughts.

.

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
-Emily Dickinson

This very short piece touched a deep chord today.

Because this lovely lady never fails to make me wonder how much I love her.

Peace or being right?

Sometimes, you keep struggling what you don’t need struggling for.

Sometimes, you keep fighting what you don’t need fighting for.

And sometimes, you keep trying when in reality you don’t need to be trying at all.

In actuality you might be doing everything in vain, rejecting your peace and instead dealing with all of unnecessary thoughts.

May be all you need is peace and not keep fighting for something which is beyond you.

Happy!!!

Waking up, early in the morning when you get to see something so beautiful, so peaceful, so naturally colorful, you just feel blessed, you feel happy.

And this is what I felt today. Peaceful and happy indeed.

Nature for me is indeed a wonderful healer.

Hope you are having a good time.

Books- My Strength!

For me books are more than just books.

Books are more than words,

They are more than mere pages,

They are more than simple plots and fictional stances..

Books are my weakness and they are my strength,

They are my escape mechanism,

And they are my reality!!

They are ever present, non complaining friends,

They are certainly not my enemies.

And these books are where I find my solace,

From this ever present insanity!

 

 

3 Days Lyrical Challenge- Day3

So after a song from 2018 and then reverting back to 1960, today I am in a fix. As soon as I heard lyrical challenge, I knew my all time favourites, and go to songs will be included here. But I haven’t until now, so today when I cannot choose from these two songs I take the liberty to put up two songs today. I am sorry I just cannot pick one between these two. I have been listening to these two songs since years and I never get enough of them. They are always on my list, always! So I am almost possessed my them 😉 (If you know what I mean)

The first song is somewhere between my two time varying selections; from 1990. The movie from which I take this song is ‘Jurm’.

Singers: Kumar Sanu, Sadhana Sargam
Lyrics: Indeevar
Music: Rajesh Roshan

Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Naa koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

Ho chaandni jab tak raat deta hai har koi saath
Tum magar andheron mein na chhodna mera haath
Ho chaandni jab tak raat deta hai har koi saath
Tum magar andheron mein na chhodna mera haath
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Na koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

Wafadaari ki vo rasmein nibhayenge hum tum kasmein
Ek bhi saans zindagi ki jab tak ho apne bas mein
Wafadaari ki vo rasmein nibhayenge hum tum kasmein
Ek bhi saans zindagi ki jab tak ho apne bas mein
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Na koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

Dil ko mere hua yakeen hum pehle bhi mile kahin
Silsila ye sadiyon ka koi aaj ki baat nahin
Dil ko mere hua yakeen hum pehle bhi mile kahin
Silsila ye sadiyon ka koi aaj ki baat nahin
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

 

Jab koi baat bigad jaaye jab koi mushkil pad jaaye
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Na koi hai na koi tha zindagi mein tumhaare siva
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa
Tum dena saath mera o humnawaa

This is literally my go to song. I don’t know I love it-

 

And now the next song. I don’t know what to say except I love it too.

I do realise that I am picking all the old songs now and you might think what an oldie this person is, but okay, I got it. It is still my favourite too :-p

The song is from the movie  ‘Woh Kaun Thi’, a 1964 movie.

Song : Lag Ja Gale Ki Phir Ye Hasin Raat
Music : Madan Mohan Kohli
lyrics : Raja Mehdi Ali Khan
Singers : Lata Mangeshkar

Lag Ja Gale Ki Phir Ye Hasin Raat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho
Lag Jaa Gale …

Ham Ko Mili Hain Aaj, Ye Ghadiyaan Nasib Se
Ji Bhar Ke Dekh Lijiye Ham Ko Karib Se
Phir Aap Ke Nasib Men Ye Baat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho
Lag Jaa Gale …

Paas Aaiye Ki Ham Nahin Aaenge Baar-Baar
Baahen Gale Men Daal Ke Ham Ro Le Zaar-Zaar
Aankhon Se Phir Ye Pyaar Ki Barasaat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho

Lag Ja Gale Ki Phir Ye Hassin Raat Ho Na Ho
Shaayad Phir Is Janam Men Mulaaqaat Ho Na Ho
Lag Jaa Gale …

Tell me you don’t like this song in the least and I don’t know what am I going to do 😀

 

Happy listening-  to these oldies 😀

Also, if you are not participating in this challenge, would you please just mention one song, just one from your all time favourites. They say your taste of music lets people know what kind of a person you are. So just curious. 🙂

 

Three Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 1

Recently I have been nominated for this musical challenge by  the_aestheticspirit. I have come to love her work, and if you give her a peep I am pretty sure you will love her work too. She writes wonderful prose and poems, and has a very insightful mind and a lovely heart.

So for my Day 1, I choose a very heart touching song, which has a melody which sways me with a rhythm which I had not known until it’s release which is sadly very recently. This song is a from a Bollywood movie’s album, which isn’t even present in the movie and most people have not even heard it. At least most people that I know tell me that they haven’t heard of it. But the first time I heard it I was hooked, gripped, stuck, clutched by it. Not the tune, but the music, the rhythm, the lyrics, the song, it mesmerizes me as a unit. The lyrics touch my ‘Rooh’ (Soul)

Okay, I guess I have put up high hopes for the song, you might not even like it, the choice is yours. But I take the liberty to call it one of my favourites for this year.

The song is ‘Tab bhi Tu from the album of ‘October’. (Sadly the songs aren’t present in the movie)

Singer- Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Music- Anupam Roy

Lyrics- Tanveer Ghazi.

Meri rooh karegi fariyad
Meri saasein kahin kho jayengi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Jab rakh banega yeh suraj
Aur dhoop dhuaan ho jayegi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Sajde ki tarah phir aakhein jhukin
Phir palkein namazi huyin
Tere zikra mein thi kuchh aisi nami
Sookhi saasein bhi taazi huyin

Jab umra ki awara baarish
Sab rang mere dho jayegi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Taveez hai meri mutthi mein
Taveez mein hai tasveer teri
Uljhi si lakeerein hath mein hain
Tu suljhaaye takdeer meri.

Jab waqt karega chhal mujhse
Takdeer khafa ho jayegi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Meri rooh karegi fariyad
Meri saasein kahin kho jayengi
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna
Tab bhi tu mere sang rehna

Well, I find the song as good as the movie, simply like a poem, beautiful and something which touches your soul and wraps its arms around it to comfort you with something you have never had.

PS: Participate if you like this concept, or else simply tune in to this

Changes.

Nothing is permanent, except change.

 

Change is the only constant.

 

Things change in life.

 

People come and go.

 

These simple words refuse to sit within my irate mind and destroy its peace. Is it so difficult to grasp these simple facts and live with it?

 

Yes, I know I am being unreasonable, I am and I can’t help it. And you know what, I want to be. For a little while I want to be this super childish person who is for once, just for a little while allowed to make all unnecessary and unreasonable demands. I don’t expect them to get fulfilled, I know they can’t, I juts want them to be there, for a while be the not so mature person.

 

I know things have to change, for good or for worse, I know these people have to go, whether I like it or not, but just for once I want to sit back and whine a little. Because however hard I pretend and try to feel that all of it doesn’t matter, in reality it does. Yes, it does matter.

 

There, I said it. It all matters, it all hurts, and I don’t like it.

 

Having said that, I also understand that I can’t control everything, neither do I want to. I also realize that I will very soon learn to have these changes in my life. I understand that I will accept these changes whole-heartedly, and very soon these things wouldn’t even matter. But until then I want to sit back, lie down, and just for once admit these feelings to myself. For once I want to let myself cry and laugh and do whatever I wish to. I will move on, I just want a little more time to adjust to this change.
