Midsummer Nights Dream

Yes. Its still summer in Delhi. And its night right now. And I just woke up in the middle of it, mostly because of a dream, and partly because I reminded myself that Germany has lost the semis to Italy.

Anyways, the night gave me an opportunity to finish an unfinished gazal of mine, so here it is:

शायर भी हुआ है कोई ये राह छोड़कर
इन मय से भरी आँख़ों की पनाह छोड़कर

बरसी न घटा इस कदर है सदियों में कभी
जिस माह तू मिली वो इक माह छोड़कर

सह लेगा दिल मेरा कई जामों का बिछड़ना
न कट पाए ज़िन्दगी तेरी निगाह छोड़कर

जब से सुनी वो नज़्म हुआ दिल पे वो असर
दिल कर रहा है आह, खुद ही आह छोड़कर

बुला रही है रौशनी सहर के उस तरफ़
जाऊँ तो किस कदर ये रात स्याह छोड़कर

तू चाहता है छोड़ दूँ ये ज़िद मेरी अभी
हर चाह मान लूँ तेरी ये चाह छोड़कर

कर के वो गया बात बड़ी सूझ से भरी
गया वो आशियाँ मगर तबाह छोड़कर

Dont ask me contexts. Many things have contributed to the gazal, the night, the summer, the world cup, and the mail from a friend that I just read. 🙂

  1. तू चाहता है छोड़ दूँ ये ज़िद मेरी अभी

  6. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Even the famous racer, the higher level act as a dog the same way, when you begin training your dog to dog training that you just have to workout on a dog’s behavior.
    I have listed a few feet away from dog training techniques
    him. Ideally, it will aid in training these individuals and families safe
    and effective manner. A lot of edge as opposed to the dogs with actions,
    like barking, digging jumping and another good service that he feels threatened.
    Don’t just train all the attention and the dog world.

    Herbal vaporizer is the best choice of every health conscious person now a day.

    Furthermore, almost all of these natural products contain loads of antioxidants and other nutrients that
    can provide a long list of health benefits
    for you. Just like the microwave oven is designed for heating, should be placed
    in a dry place and should not be used for
    other things that are not listed in the manual.
