Duniya kahe usey Paagal.


Kyun dartein hain hum,
Aise kaam kyun kartein hain hum,
Kyun yeh quaayanaat usne banaayi,
Kyun raat ke baad na kabhie woh subha aayi,
Kyun hum theher gayein iss duniya ke saath,
Kyun badal dee humne apni chaal,
Kyun rang dhangh woh hosh hawas,
Sabb udd gayein saath leke woh yaadash,
Abb toh wo yaadein bhee ho gayi hain dhundhlee,
Jabb na koi parwaah thee,
Naa yeh dunya thee.

Iss duniya ko usne jabb banaaya,
Iss insaan ko jabb usne taraasha,
Iss zameen ko usne chuna,
Aasmaan ko bunaa,
Yeh na socha hoga usne,
Ki yahee tarashein huey putle,
Banaa deinge zanjeerein,
Zanjeerein unn putlon ke liye,
Jinhe woh tarashega apni fursat mein,
Jinhein woh banaayega itni shiddat se,
Unhee putlon ke liye,
Humne kasi zanjeerein.

Kyun humne diye naam har cheez ko,
Kyun humne kasaa inn zanjeero ko,
Kyun hum chaltein rahein iss raah pe,
Jahaan na koi manzil,
Na koi jahaan.

Aur jo na kare inn zanjeero ki izzat,
Jo chodna chaahe inki jakdan,
Jo jaanna chahe iss  duniya ke asli rang,
Rehna chahe uss aasmaan ke neeche,
Choona chahe woh jheelein,
Woh parvat,
Woh duniya jo uss upar waale ne banaayi thee,
Jo chahe usko choona,
Duniya kahe usey paagal.

Today, I cannot believe in anything

Today, I cannot believe in anything. I feel like I am doublechecking everything I hear from multiple sources to support or to refute any opinion or act. I was born in '94 so I didn't always have the internet at my disposal, I saw it flourish and today I am partially afraid of it.

It reminds me of the various books and articles I have read on dystopian societies, which I always thought were great, but fiction. Today, I think I was wrong. I live in a world where news channels show what drives ratings so that more people view the news channels and hence they can sell advertising spots for a higher price. Today I see people sharing their views and getting attacked. Today, I feel disturbed, afraid and confused.

In classic dystopian fiction, there is generally an authoritarian government. Fortunately, we're not there (yet). Not in all parts of the world. There would be people watching you everywhere, everytime and the government will have the power to sniff you out anytime they…

Four liners - The Water Set

These are some 4 line poems which I write when I am slightly low and want to feel better. Apparently, getting it out of my system is a real solution which works for me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Drowning and Ducks
I drowned before I swam,
No ducks were my friends,
I swim with my eyes to the floor,
Mostly, I am still alone.

Gallows
Disappointed by the land,
I flew to the turbulent seas,
The waves drowned me this time,
I washed up on the beach.

More water

Fishes swam to sing,
I drowned myself to hear them,
Fishes died breathing the fresh air,
I grew a pair of gills.

I M, the attention eating plague

IM Instant messaging
Background: I have a gift, the gift is the ability to sleep almost anywhere instantly and most of the time my phone is mostly on ‘silent mode’, so I never hear the beeps. Infact, sometimes I get shocked when I hear an unfamiliar sound coming out of my pants. 👖 (pant emoji is the fun most thing I discovered today)
Trigger incident: As usual, I was sleeping on my way to the airport and this time the only difference was that my mobile was not on silent. While I was listening to Damien Rice and getting ready to fall asleep, I hear a ping. I didn’t open my eyes but then I heard 7 more. After the first one, I had told myself that it is okay to let go one text but it still took mental processing. However, when the flurry started then I was just so impatient that anything could have happened. I tried to rationalize and wait but realized it was just me worrying about what they could have been and wasting time on that rather than fixing the instant gratification monkey 🐒wi…
