25th anniversary - buaji


(For Buaji and Phuphaji)

सालो में एक साल आया
जिसने आपकी पचिसवी को पास लाया
इसने यह एहसास दिलाया
की ज़िंदगी का दूसरा पड़ाव आया

पचीस साल पहले शादी ने आपको साथ लाया
इसी ताज के होटेल में आपको एक बनाया
ये संगम सबके मन को भाया
आज पचीस साल बाद भी यही साथ लाया

खुशी के मौके ने हूमे यहाँ बुलाया
बहुत प्यार हम ने आपसे पाया
एक दूसरे में आपने एक सच्चा दोस्त पाया
इस रिश्ते को बहुत खूबसूरती से निभाया

Saalo mein ek saal aaya
Jisne aapki pachisvi ko paas laaya
Isne yeh ehsaas dilaya
Ki zindagi ka doosra padav aaya

Pachis saal pehle shaadi ne aapko saath laya
Isi taj ke hotel mein aapko ek banaya
Ye sangam sabke mann ko bhaya
Aaj pachis saal baad bhi yahi saath laya

Khushi ke mauke ne hume yahan bulaya
Bahut pyar humne aapse paaya
Ek dusre mein aapne ek sachcha dost paya
Is rishte ko bahut khubsurti se nibhaya

Experience of a lifetime


We assembled at OTP for our Go Plus outing
And as strangers we boarded the bus
After an uneventful journey, we reached Camp Shristi
Full of excitement and without any fuss

Hungry after the hike, we pounced on hot pakodas
And then we were allotted our tent
We unpacked quickly and assembled for Introductions
Played Name Banner and for dinner off we went

After a fun round of Dumb-Charades, we dozed off
And with much difficulty, we woke up groggily at six
Got an adrenaline rush with Rappelling
All the while taking loads of pics

Battled it out in Obstacle Course and River Crossing
In Three Islands, we became blind, dumb and lame
With torches in hand, we set off for Moonlight Treasure Hunt
Had delicious dinner and played the Guess Who game

Next morning, with Meditation we had a fresh head start
And while Zorbing, we rolled down the slope
We showed our team spirit in the A-frame activity
In Marble-Pipe game and while swinging the rope

After a quick lunch we got together in our teams
To rehearse for the skit which we hadn’t done yet
Had an entertaining session with some brilliant performances
And realized the talent of the people we had met

Soon after it was time to go and bid adieu
It was a wonderful experience and the best trip ever
We learnt the Oracle values and also made new friends
I will cherish this fun-filled outing forever!!

Freaky Freshers


Ankit, the physics enthusiast
This karate black belt is a bag full of talent
Nagin dance, GK and strategy are his strengths
This “Gopiyon ka kanhaiya” is very gallant

Ashwini, the twinkling star gazer
She’s hilarious when she says “what the hell”
Her rope dance was epic when cheaters didn’t prosper
“Yappa” she reacts with a defensive yell

Deepa, the dimpled damsel
Has long, shining beautiful hair
A true keralite at heart, sweet and sportive
She often points out this is “not fair”

Deepti, the chotta packet is a loudspeaker
She has a twin sister and is never lonely
“Come ya, get ya, go ya”
Her patient dialogues are “that only”

Nandana, the TT champion
Shredded her specs and adopted contact lens
Runs behind buses and loves her pets
She’s lazy and dramatic and shouts “what nonsense”

Sasi, the bali ka bakra
Is the newest addition to the DBA team
She has an amazing sense of humour
Loves dancing as much as having ice cream

Shivani, the gorgeous hottie
Really likes to play throwball
She’s really sporty yet quite shy
“Get lost” and “shut up” is her brawl

[Written by Sasi]
Cherisha, the gallery of all art
“Let’s do it!” she screams for everything dangerous
She designs graphics like it’s a cake walk
Oooh my friend, you are really marvelous!

आदरणीय नानिजी,

आपके जाने का दुख हूमें बहुत हैं
एक अजीब सा ख़ालीपन महसूस होता हैं
आपको अब हम कभी ना देख पाएँगे
और ना आपके चरण पर माता टेक पाएँगे

राधे राधे कहकर आप हमारा अभिवादन करते थे
हर सवेरे हूमें दूध और बादाम खिलते थे
और साथ ही देते तुलसी और ताल मखना
बादाम का हलवा का शौख था आपको बनाना

दिखाई देता है आपका मुस्कुराता चेहरा
भगवान और पूजा पाठ सेआपका रिश्ता था गहरा
सुखी परिवार हैं आपने पाला
चाहा हमेशा आपने सबका भला

दान पून में आपने छोड़ी ना कोई कसर
बहुत शुभकामनाए दी हूमें हर ज्नम दिन पर
आपका स्वाभाव था निस्वार्थ और साधारण
बहुत लड़ प्यार मिला हूमें इसी के कारण

आपके आदर्शो का हम पालन करेंगे
और ज़िंदगी के हर कदम पर कभी ना डरेंगे
आपने हूमें सही सीख और अच्छे संस्कार दिए
आपकी याद तो हूमें बहुत आएगी इसलिए

आपके आशीर्वाद की साया हमारे सर पर चाव देगी
आपकी तस्वीर हमारे मन में बसी रहेगी
आप हम से बहुत दूर चले गये हो
पर आशा हैं की आप शांति और प्रसन्नता की अवस्ता में हो

aapke jaane ka dukh humein bahut hain
ek ajeeb sa khalipan mehsoos hota hain
aapko ab hum kabhi na dekh payenge
aur na aapke charan par matha tek payenge

radhe radhe kehkar aap hamara abhivadan karte the
har savere humein doodh aur badam khilate the
aur saath hi dete tulsi aur taal makhana
badam ka halwa ka shaukh tha aapko banana

dikhai deta hai aapka muskurata chehra
bhagwan aur pooja paat se aapka rishta tha gehra
sukhi parivar hain aapne pala
chaha hamesha aapne sabka bhala

daan poon mein aapne chodi na koi kasar
bahut shubhkamnaye di humein har janam din par
aapka swabhav tha nihaswarth aur sadharan
bahut lad pyar mila humein isi ke kaaran

aapke aadharsho ka hum paalan karenge
aur zindagi ke har kadam par kabhi na darenge
aapne humein sahi seekh aur acche sanskar diye
aapki yaad to humein bahut aayegi isiliye

aapke aashirwad ki saaya hamare sar par chaav degi
aapki tasveer hamare mann mein basi rahegi
aap humse bahut door chale gaye ho
par aasha hain ki aap shanti aur prasannata ki avasta mein ho

Reminiscing about the past makes me really happy
As the future seems confusing and crappy
I’m living in the present
But into the past I want to be sent

Those were the times when I was full of bliss
Any opportunity to enjoy I wouldn’t miss
I’m clinging onto the past
But the memories are fading away fast

There used to be a time when I thought
Those friendships would last forever no matter what
When dreams were big and possibilities seemed endless
When the future looked promising without any mess

But now I’m losing faith and I’m full of negativity
Polluting my head with depression, sadness and self-pity
No more are happy and innocent memories in place
Instead are worries, anxieties and frustrations that I have to face!

The Perfect Dream


As a teenager, she always dreamed
of being with the perfect guy
She had a few crushes in college
but never spoke to them coz she was shy

She got attracted and started falling for someone
but never had the courage to speak out her heart
When she did express her feelings, he rejected her
and she was crushed and torn apart

She was lonely and depressed
and cried before sleeping every night
Till her guardian angel came along
and filled her days of darkness with some light

He taught her to live and be happy again
she learned to smile again and be cheerful
He was everything she ever dreamed of
and he made her feel confident and beautiful

He was her knight in shining armor
the sweetest, nicest guy she ever met
He was gentle, loving, caring and kind
the best thing that happened in her life yet

Through thick and thin, he was there for her
his love was genuine, compassionate and tender
He gave her infinite moments to cherish forever
he never lied and was never a pretender

She always thought he was too good for her
how much he meant to her, she could never confess
She could not imagine a life without him
he was her perfect dream nevertheless

But then reality intervened and she woke up
realizing it wasn’t real and never mattered
She was lonelier now more than ever
her perfect dream was now shattered!

I hate


I hate that I’m still hurting
I hate that I still care…
I hate that I cannot move on
I hate that I think it’s unfair…

I hate that I can’t give up so easily
I hate that I can’t let go…
I hate that I took you for granted
I hate that I now feel so low…

I hate that I feel like crying every night
I hate that I feel so lonely…
I hate that I tried but couldn’t hate you
I hate that I think of you only…

I hate that I still have feelings for you
I hate that I still miss you so much…
I hate that I’m so confused and lost
I hate that I crave your touch…

I hate that I cannot accept it
I hate that I cannot so soon forget…
I hate that I wasn’t good enough
I hate that I’m full of regret…

I hate that I became so close to you
I hate that I became attached so fast…
I hate that I’m living on false hopes
I hate that I’m clinging onto the past…

I wonder


I wonder why things changed…
I wonder what went wrong…
I wonder how it ended up like this…
I wonder why it didn’t last for long…

I wonder what I could have changed…
I wonder what more I should have done…
I wonder why things became awkward…
I wonder why it was no longer fun…

I wonder if I should keep faith in destiny…
I wonder why I’m in such a daze…
I wonder if things will turn out alright…
I wonder if it’s just a passing phase…

I wonder what could have happened…
I wonder how I would feel…
I wonder how different life would be…
I wonder if I’ll get back that zeal…

You were my everything


You wiped my tears when I was sad
You endured my anger when I got mad
You comforted me when I was down
You made me smile when I had a frown

You were always so understanding and kind
You were smart with a brilliant mind
You taught me the right attitude of living
You were always so loving, caring and giving

You were always patient when I got cranky
You tolerated spice when I ordered a franky
You made me happy when I got senti
You gave me amazing memories in plenty

You appreciated every little thing I had done
You made just hanging out so much fun
You were so adorable when you played with dogs
You were so encouraging about my blogs

You never said no when I asked for anything
You were so helpful with everything
You never shouted at me or raised your voice
You never made a fuss unlike other boys

You liked my new clothes and looks
You had an amazing choice of movies and books
You made me watch amazing TV shows
You laughed at my fake head tilt pose

You got me excited for even small and silly stuff
You supported me when times got tough
You inspired me to get a job
You consoled me when I started to sob

You never blamed me for anything all these years
You gave me strength to forget all my fears
You never put me down or been rude
You tolerated me every possible mood

You loved me despite our many a fight
You held me close and hugged me tight
You always protected me and put my safety first
You never let my dream bubbles burst

You always wanted to take me everywhere
You missed my presence when I wasn’t there
You made my birthdays extra memorable
You got me gifts that were so adorable

You are my BMW buddy and will always be
You will always be so special to me
You were the best and most amazing bf ever
You will be cherished by me forever…
