• Listening.........
    Dr Nishan | 15-Jul-2020
    Listening with eyes closed  Listening with open heart  Listening with a flawless ego Listening with  empathy  Listening is empowerment  Listening is connection  Listening is magical  Listen to yourself and those who mean to you . Listen to those who doesn't matter to you. Listen to nature and learn to nurture Listen to Music and folk lores and fables  Listen to caress the wounds and scars  Listen to pains that took you so far  Listen to re learn all that's learnt  Listen to undo all that you have done........  Under the layers of flesh and bones we are all nothing but only one !!

  • The Fallen rose !!
    Dr Nishan | 11-Jul-2020
    Smoking a cigar she stood by the street swaying her hips , a tune on her lips  Swirling her heels in graceful abandon  She scanned the crowd for a hopeful acquaintance The red lips she flaunted was too much a cliche The make up had caked and the frowns wrinkled . The kohl smudged over like spilled over wine. The ladies shyed away as she walked down the streets  The men ogled her in all ways they could . The sagging boobs,muddy heels ,greying and balding hair lines  Some fret, some laughed at her staggering gait  "Old hag", they whispered and whistled as she slouched into the evening bar   The prime of a dancer, a singer, saw such great falls .. she loved many and many loved her but couldn't belong to any .  In search of fame and riches she remembered the days she danced with her soul and spirit . Now the empty womb s throbbing for a child who would hold her hand for one last time  Now the days gave birth to lonely nights where she sat and knit with a br

  • Being her
    Dr Nishan | 09-Jul-2020
    The driest Sahara that the rain can't quench , let her thirst pour like the rapids and the floods.  The dilapidated dreams that saw no dawn , let her dream till her soul finds rest.  Are you the bird who left the nest to find the rest..   Who burnt it's wings by the wrath of the sun..  Let the Nightingale sing at the emperor sill.. Let the gleeful music make her free  If you can't bear her heat..  If you can't see her dreams ..  If you can't touch her soul..  If you can't love her scars..  Go shoot her in the head , let her crown fall to the ground ..  Oh .. the fiery fate of life , take one final look , a million forms are spurting out from every drop of blood you shed..  No matter how many swords you sway... You still cant stop her throbbing heart...  That dreamed , that loved , that yearned , that fought...  That chose to fly above the nest you made... That chose to fight the rest you tamed .

    " A woman you are When will you learn? To speak softly, laugh only little, Sit neatly, walk garcefully, every breath governed!   You have to be calm and demure  Your words and thoughts and your body impure,  You bleed every month, woman, its a disgrace Ensure you hide it well and even cover your face!   Its something to be kept safe and secret  Its a curse being a woman - my biggest regret! This pain and the struggle that comes every month  This isnt the time to pull your bold stunts!   So stay at home and stay within the walls  Dont fly too much lest trouble befalls  Its a man's world we cannot change Be grateful, for us he drops his sweat!   What makes you feel you can change the world? There will only be insults and accusations hurled  At you and me for doing a bad job Unable to do more than sit and sob!   Wake up young woman! Its time to realise your fate And learn your place and duties  Before it gets too late!"

    Alag ho kar bhi tum mujhse,  Kushi se reh nahi paaye.  Judaa toh ho gaye lekin,  Judaai seh nahi paaye.  Dukhi meh bhi is liye nahi,  Ki tumne mujhe nakaar diyaa,  Rota toh me iss liye hu,  Ki tumne kabhi mauka hi mujhe naa diyaa.

  • सपना भी मे, सच्चाई भी मे!
    Deepak Bhansali | 26-May-2020
    अंधेरा भी मे, उजाला भी मे, मे हु तो सब है, मे नहीं तो कुछ भी नहींI   देखो तो नज़रियाँ हु, दिखाओ तो नज़ाकत हु, ख़ामोशी की ज़ुबान हु, झुक गयी तो अपमान हुI   ख़ुशी भी मे, गम भी मे, दोनों मौको मे नम भी मे, दूर भी मे, पास भी मे, आस भी मे, एहसास भी मेI   न हो पायी मुलाक़ात हु, अनकहे अनसुने जज़बात हु, बंद हु तो सपने हु, खुल गयी तो सच्चाई हुI   हालातो से सिख गयी तो इंसान हु, हालातो को बिक गयी तो हैवान हु, मे तुम्हारी आँखे हु, चाहो तो आज़ादी, चाहो तो सलांखे हुI

    Let the hardships attack, together we will get through!   After countless sleepless nights & resilient feud,It was her time to shine and make her parents proud,But for so called society she was now a ready commodity,Marrying & raising kids must be her sole responsibility! But she resolved not to fall into this foolish bait,She’d rather be independent & self-reliant,She travelled to Pune, to meet the guy and reject,By finding out some or the other defect! “Do you really want to have the dull & tasteless Coffee?”She questioned as they entered in a CCD.“You spoke my mind, I’d rather prefer a Wadapav”The Punekar answered without any ambiguity. Then with a roadside wadapav & chilled buttermilk,They raised a toast to their first ever meet! They shared likes, dislikes, habits, even addictions,From Pune-Mumbai comparison to their past relations!They spoke like they knew each other since long,For the first time Mumbai and Pune got along!

    Life is not a seashore, it’s a roller coaster ride! With hopes in her heart & dreams in her eyes,Dodging the society’s unasked advice,She stepped in Mumbai – not a city but an emotion,As hectic as local trains, as deep as an ocean! Near the seashore, at the marine drive,She finally felt that she was alive,She used to sit there for hours,Sometimes with the cold breeze,At times with the gentle showers! She met many people, made new friends,Got used to the city’s speed, hugged new trends,Fell in love with her classmate,Surrendered her soul to her soul mate! She believed, she combated the high tide,Time had come to live with joy & pride,But life is not a seashore, it’s a roller coaster ride,It always have steep slopes with every sharp rise! What she considered as love was his obsession,He started treating her like a greedy possession,She dismantled her feelings, defused all connected cords,Got cut in half by the depression’s sharp sword! Before she could get over,

    ‘Struggles become her path-finders.’   As she opened her eyes, the first thing she did was crySince her parents desired a successor, a wish, she had failed to satisfy… In the pursuit of a son, they were blessed by fate,With two more daughters, Luck and Grace. Crushed under social pressure, which says only sons are solace,Little did the society know, that daughters could also bring grace… Lack of a business sense, and a dearth of commercial knowledge,The father’s attempted ventures ended up in huge loses. His debts made them travel from one city to another,The daughters changed schools, the only friends they had was each other Her father vented out all the frustration on the mother,Unable to contain her angst, she’d retaliate in equal anger She never saw her parents being affectionate,She only witnessed quarrels, Fights, and abuse that was wicked Amidst all the chaos, and the constantly changing neighborhoodsBefore she could realise, she had lost her childhoo

  • मी आहे तरी कौन?
    Deepak Bhansali | 20-Apr-2020
    मी आहे डोळ्यात साठून पडलेले अश्रू,जे बाहेर निघण्याची वाट शोधू पाहत आहे,पण मी रडणार तरी कुणासाठी,आरश्या समोरच्या अनोळख्या व्यक्ती साठी?कि नात्यांच्या नावावर होत असलेल्या भावनांच्या उप्श्योक्ती साठी? मी स्वतः स्वताचा शत्रू बनलो, विश्वास टाकावा तरी कुणावर?प्राण हि तेच घेतात, ज्यांच्यासाठी प्राण लावले पनावर..!! मी आहे गवती चादरीवर पसरलेली ओस,मी गवतावर जीव लावते, त्याला शोभा आणते, त्याचे एकटेपण दूर करते,पण ते गवत देखील उन्हाच्या रोशानाईत मला विसरतो,मला तो उन जिवंत जाळतो, तरी पुढच्या दिवशी पी पुन्हा येते,मागच सर्व विसरून, एक नवीन आशा घेऊन, एक नव्या शुरुवाती साठी,फक्त एक आस घेऊन, कि माझ्या भावना ह्या गवताला कधीतरी कळतील..!! मी आहे भिंतीच्या छातडावर बसलेली घडी,भिंतीचा रंग, सोबत राहणारे Calendar, समोरचे व्यक्ती, हृदयात थोच्लेले Cells माझ्या अवती-भोवती सर्व काही बदलत राहत, मी मात्र ठाम उभी आहे,वर्ष बदलतात, लोक बदलतात, लोकांच स्वभाव बदलतो,माझी Tick-tick मात्र एकच चक्कर मारत आहे, फिरून परत त्याच ठिकाणी..!! खोट आहे हे सर्व, नात्यांच्या गळफासात अडकून गेलेत सर्व,स्वप्न पुरे करण्याच्या नादात फसून गेलेत सर्व,पण वाळवंटात क

    Food for Thought..When my Man cooks, He does it with his heart...Theres passion and love, In every bit and part!..Food is not what you eat, It's what you feel deep...An energy sublime, it makes your soul leap!..The kitchen is his playground, Hes scoring all the sixes...Tossing around chicken and veggies, Theres nothing that he misses!..If food could speak, it would say...You treated me well and made my day!..Small experiments in the kitchen, Big feasts on the table...It's like im floating in a dreamland inside a fable!..My home smells divine, Aromas are in the air...A pop here, a pop there, Theres colour everywhere!..Every recipe has a secret, a secret ingredient of pyaar...My palate sings the melodies of sweet, savoury and sour!..So much Gratitude to see his love on a plate...Every night has started to feel like a date!..He and his food, its a little kitchen dance...Love for food is a new level spiced up romance!..- DS

            My world never felt empty It had thousand reasons for me to go on I was living it in peace and sanity But never found one like you to count upon   Just when I thought I was sure That I had these feelings buried down deep You came and touched my soul with yours In joy you made my heart give a leap   You showed me a whole new way The one that I could have only dreamt of You presented to me a totally new world That consisted of only and only pure love   You are the sole reason behind This constant smile on my face The twinkling in my eyes And the happiness in my soul   I hear your sensual voice Even when you don’t say a thing to me Every time you whisper how much you love me You make my heart skip a beat   This sure felt like a deep connection Not from now but many lifetimes before We may have left our unfinished story behind I now wonder for us, what else is in store?   You are more than just a companion to me now

    The way they'd love each other was now rare to see,  For the bulk of misunderstandings had lead them away from which they couldn't be free.  The fight they've had everyday, Have now made that child it's prey. The child could do nothing,  Closed the door and sat for sobbing.  The screech from the souls who've once loved each other, Weren't suppose to be heard by the child who loved them as it'd bother. Seeing the parents falling apart Would leave the child with a life which'll never start.

    Strived everyday still felt that sore  Apparently they weren't my friends anymore  So debilitated was I  That couldn't even tend to cry  Was done endeavouring on my ex  As I fell off the apex Almost have I led down my reputation  Moving on looked like procrastination  How long could I live in endurance? Will I ever cease my perseverance?  A bombshell met my heart  Telling me there's a new life I need to start Neither was it difficult at all  Nor this time was I afraid to fall  Started I to believe in my own self Wasn't meant to be kept in a closed shelf  The incident I look back and see  Changed me how and glowed me with glee

    They bang their head on you  To get themselves a version new  They think now they'd be love  But the world's like dove  It flies and change it's place  Like in cards, after heart it's ace They must go back to the same  As new takes a lot to get this fame
