Mahananda

Mahananda ke ek sire se
kayi kavitaayein judi hain,

Jo tumhe mujhse jodti hain.
Train ki chuk chuk mein bhi to
na jaane kitni kahaniyaan goonjti hain;
Jo khamoshiyon mein bhi
Mujhe dastak deti hain.
Kuch ansuni si kahaniyaan,
Kuch anchui si kavitaayein,
Jinhe maine likha hai.
Jinhe sirf tum sun sakte ho...
mehsoos kar sakte ho.
Puraane kitaabon ke panne palat ti hun...
Kayi safahon pe
jhurriyan pad gayi hain;
Siyaahi bhi
dhundhali ho chuki hai.
Magar in safahon ke beech...
in pannon mein dabe,
Kayi khaamosh gunche
mehfoos hain...
Jin mein aaj bhi
 hayaat ki khushboo muattar hai.
Aaine se bhi ab kya guzaarish karun?
Mere aks mein,
parchayi mein bhi to...
Bas tum hi tum nazar aate ho.

Word Meanings: Mahananda - name of a river; dastak - knock; ansuni - unheard; unchui - untouched; mehsoos - feel; safahon - pages; jhurriyan - wrinkles; siyaahi: ink; dhundhali - blurred; khaamosh - silent; gunche - flower buds; mehfoos - protected; hayaat - life; muattar - filled with perfume; aaina - mirror; guzaarish - request; aks - reflection

Reminded of a faiz saab's sher-
Kar raha tha gham-e-jahaan ka hisaab,
Aaj tum yaad be-hisaab aaye !

Keep it up !

Beautiful yaar anukriti. Mahananda flows through my home town and my school bus used to go over it (still does, but sans me). And the pics are awesome too. :)

Beautiful blog Anukriti! We briefly met at the Indiblogger meet (I don't think you'd remember!). I really like the way you blend in your pictures with your writing.

Afshaan said...


Main kaon huun, ye ab khud bhi nahin jaanti huun main,
Tum kaon ho ye khud bhi nahin jaante ho tum.
Har baar tumse yuun hi bichadti rahi huun main,
Har baar yuun hi phir-phir milte rahe ho tum !

Waqt ke dariya mein ravaan do seepiyon se hum,
Aur ek taveel umr si phaili sii ye nadi.
