Tere khushboo mein basey khat

Tere khushboo mein basey khat main jalaataa kaise
pyaar mein doobey huye khat main jalaata kaise
tere haathon ke likhe khat main jalaata kaise

jin ko duniyaa ki nigaahon se chhupaaye rakhaa
jin ko ik umr kaleje se lagaaye rakhaa
deen jin ko, jinhein imaan banaaye rakhaa

jin kaa har lafz mujhe yaad thaa paani ki tarah
yaad thhe mujh ko jo paigaam-e-zubaani ki tarah
mujh ko pyaare thhe jo anmol nishaani ki tarah

toone duniyaa ki nigaahon se jo bachakar likhe
saalahaa-saal mere naam baraabar likhe
kabhii din mein to kabhii raat mein uthakar likhe

tere khushboo mein basey khat main jalaataa kaise
pyaar mein doobey huye khat main jalaata kaise
tere haathon ke likhe khat main jalaata kaise

tere khat aaj main gangaa mein bahaa aayaa hoon
aag bahate huye paani mein lagaa aayaa hoon...


~Rajendranath Rahbar

I chanced upon this blog of yours when I happened to be looking for this poem sung by Jagjit Singh. I lingered on and read some other blogs/thoughts of yours too.

You have such a poetic bent of mind. Probably we all do, in our own way, but never give it any concrete shape.

Had been thinking of creating my own blog for a while now but finally decided to after reading yours. I don't know why I'm telling you this but just thought i'd be honest. And it's not about thanking you or anything. I think sometimes in life things just happen because of inexplicable or unaccountable reasons, emotions, people. I think i'm just trying to acknowledge that somewhere. Why? I don't really know or perhaps cannot explain.

I am glad you stumbled upon this blog, and that u liked it is an honour .... yes, i quite agree that we all have a poetic bent of mind , some of us just have too much free time to pour it outside .... I know, why u told me what u did ... bcoz we all have an inherent want of being heard, being understood .... and probably u think i can understand what u r trying to convey ...which i can ....
