Finally, the Final Year





Reached JUIT just an hour ago. First thing which caught my attention is the lovely weather of July. Clouds everywhere, I almost forgot about it at home, that I'll be greeted by such a lovely weather. 

I also felt the 'senior' feeling for the first time truly now that we are the senior most people here. The power, the responsibility, the no-fear - almost everything related to being a senior came to my mind. 

Upon reaching the campus, I saw senior hostels where my favourite seniors and friends- Utkarsh Sir, Arun Sir, Gautam Sir, Rajan Sir- had their rooms. I suddenly remembered that this year'll be without them. Now there'll be no hanging out at Utkarsh Sir's room every night. Now there'll be nobody to guide me. And many other things which won't be there this time. 

Anyways.

Looking forward for an exciting semester. 

aadii uvaach

bade bekhabar bane baithe hain wo
aur bhule ja rahe hain humein is kadar
jaise bhul jaata hai koi purane zamaano ko

lekin puraane zamaane bhi kabhi kabhaar yaad aa hi jaate hain
aur ye bhi yaad aata hai ki kitne haseen thhey wo
kitne meethe aur kitne namkeen thhey wo

kehta hai 'aditya' pate ki baat suno
ek din aisa bhi aayega jab tu hi kahega
ki kya din thhey wo
ki kya tum thhey wo
ki kya hum thhey wo

रूठा हूँ मैं ?


इधर भागे कभी उधर भागे
ये हवा न जाने किधर भागे
गीली है
भीनी भीनी भी
महकी सी
झीनी झीनी भी
यादें लाये, यादें ले जाए
ये हवा न जाने क्या क्या दे जाए
चली होगी क्या ये तुम्हारे पास से
साथ नहीं तुम क्या तुमने भी छुआ होगा इसे हाथ से
कई रात से
एक बात से
और मुलाकात से
चूका हूँ मैं
इस हवा को कैसे पता की तुमसे रूठा हूँ मैं ?

chalta rahunga main






ye anjana sa shehar
ye anjani si dagar
dil mein bhare huye hain armaan
chhoti chhoti khushiyaan
aur thode aansu bhi



chal to raha hoon main
manzil se bekhabar
raasta guzarata huaa
aankhon mein utarta huua
thehre paani si nahin hai ye zindagi
nadiya ki dhaara sa main



padaav dekhe hain kaii
kahin rukha bhii
lekin safar thama nahin
andheron ke paar
roshniyaan hazaar
bas unki awaaz sun
chalta rahunga main
chalta rahunga main
