मैं शायर तो नहीं

People who know me know that my Hindi is comical (definitely not a thing to be proud and I’m not). While speaking I forget half of the words and for the other half I end up using Marathi substitutes 😛 So it generally is a task for the other person to decipher what I mean to say.
But in my defence, this happens only when I’m super excited to just blurt out my story. On other rarer occasions when I have time and patience to weigh my words more carefully I come up with fairly good Hindi.
So much to people’s surprise (mine included), I have composed a few Hindi shayaris too!
मैं शायर तो नहीं, मगर ऐ हसीं जब से देखा मैंने तुझको, मुझको शायरी आ गयी….aisa kuch nahi hua hai. I’m not in love or heartbroken or under any spell 😛 So anyway, here’s my dose of Hindi Shayari:

मंजील ना कभी थी एक हमारी

तो हमराह आखीर बनेही क्यू

रास्त ना कभी छुटा हमसे

तो गुमराह एसे हुए हि क्यू

दिल ये सोचें आज

के ये दिल तुझपे आया हि क्यू

जो मंजील कभी हमारी थी हि नही

उस राहपे आखीर ये दिल चलपडा हि क्यू….

Do share your response! 🙂

  2. मंजिलो की राह पर चलना है ये तो एक तनहा सफर होगा …पर अपने दिल से बढ़कर किसी और को चाहना ये सिखने के लिए शायद आपकी मंजिल न होकर भी वहाँ तक का सफर आपको नसीब हुआ होगा..नाजाने कैसी साजिशें रची है ज़िन्दगी ये सफर का वक्त ही आपको आगे काम आजाये…
