Happy Birthday!

What is it about getting a year older or a year less younger? 

Compared to the last year, should we have become wiser and less spontaneous? Should the expectations of the world from us now diminish or rise? Should we precipitate achievement of our goals because the hour glass is emptying relentlessly? Should we look back on our score on the goals set during the last year or forget and look ahead instead?

Anniversaries are always traumatic events, that is, after the metaphorical "end of innocence", when we come to realize that time waits for none. Be it our own lives and relationships, or, organisations and their failures and successes. Every greeting and felicitation is a reminder of the fact that while the world goes around in perpetuity, the time left for your stroll on the sands of time just became a trifle shorter. 

The fatigue at the end of the day's celebrations are not so much a result of physical effort and merry making, as it is mental. The night after revelry is restless.

याद रखना

जाने कब ये दिल
बेघर हो जाए
मेरे यार का पता
याद रखना

जाने कब उनसे
मुलाक़ात हो जाए
बिछड़ने का सलीका
याद रखना 

जाने कब ये मंजिलें
गुम हो जाएँ
रास्तों का हुनर
याद रखना 

खुदा का हक
तुझसे पहले है
हर दुआ मांगने से पहले
याद रखना

आज़ादी के चौंसठ साल

हमने आज़ादी के चौंसठ सालों में  
हथेली पर सरसों उगाई है 
हमारे नेताओं को सूंघ लो
