Dedicated to Bangalore life!

तरस गई हूँ मैं
पथरा गई आँखें।
देख चुकी रास्ता
कई बार जा के।

पूछा पड़ोसियों से
उसे देखा है कहीं।
पागल समझते हैं
मुझे लोग सभी।

बहुत मन्नतें माँगी
बहुत रोई, गिड़गिड़ाई।
कितने संदेशे भेजे पर
काम वाली आज फिर नहीं आई।

जाओ बढ़ो,
बिना हॉर्न बजाए,
मुझे बाईं ओर से
एक इंच की भी दूरी दिए बिना
ओवरटेक करो
चलाओ अपनी गाड़ी
साँप की तरह रेंगते हुए
करो आगे उसे
इधर से, उधर से
जान आफ़त में डालते हुए।
क्या होगा अगर आगे मुझसे निकल भी गए तो?
अगले जाम में
या अगले सिगनल पर
हमें फिर मिलना है।
फिर एक ही जगह से
सब शुरु करना है।

लेकिन फिर भी
जाओ, बढ़ो।

🙂 – Sometimes you just have to find a way to laugh on things! Despite the title of the post, I do not claim that these experiences are limited to just Bangalore.

  1. accidently read ur poetry on this blog. live in mumbai, can very well identify, very well written..on the kam wali poetry me and my friend clapped too.

  2. On from me,

    Hum jaa rahe the,
    woh aa rahe the,
    woh to rasta dekh rahe the,
    par hum unhe dekh rahe the,
    itne main ek mod aa gaya,
    unhone to sahi mod lie,
    par humne har baar galtian ki,
    woh to unke gher pahunch gaye,
    aur kuch galtion ne humein bhi unke gahr pahucha dia,
    aj kal hamara unki galion se aana jaan hai,
    woh aj bhi sahi raste se apne ghar ko jaate hain,
    aur hum bhi galat raste se unke ghar hi jaate….

    hum soch main hi doobe hue the ke,
    peeche se ek bhai saab ne horn daba dia,
    daba kya dia dabate hi rahe,
    kehne lage ki bike chalate hue,
    kisi ko pehli baar khayalon main dekha,
    aati jaati gaadion ke shor ne,
    un bhai saab ke shor ne,
    mujhe sundar sapne se jagaya,
    mujhe bahut krodh aaya,
    samne bhi woh nazr nahi aaye,
    humein agle signal ka khayal aaya,
    aur humne fir pehla gear lagaya…

    Cheers!!!
