बरसात की आवाज़ मुझे याद नहीं

By Bhargavi G. Iyer कई बादल गुज़र चुके हैं । नदियां, झरने, सब रुके हैं । मिट्टी में दरारें पड़ने लगी हैं, जग में सारे जग सूखे हैं ।


By Amruta Gijare Is there something to hide? Facades are breathtakingly majestic, while they cover the structure within. Is there something to hide? Tears are happy and smiles are grim.

मेरे जूतों की पुकार

By Bhargavi G. Iyer माना कि जब जुहू की मिट्टी से भर जाते, मैंने उन्हें खूब धोया-पीटा है। लोकल ट्रैन की भीड़ में घुसते-घुसाते, भागते-चढ़ते, प्लैटफॉर्म पे घसीटा है।

Raiding the Waves

By Vrinda Tiwari You like the curves of her body You like the tone of her skin, You’re obsessed with fair colour For you, brown would never win.


By Aria Sheth When you let me gaze at the beautiful sky When you allow me to spot that little girl begging on the streets The way you let me admire your body in the mirror The times you let me stare into the darkness of the night.


By Aria Sheth I often ponder over The existence of another me In a parallel universe, A world I cannot see


By Aria Sheth The tiny, shimmering leaves, When the wind blows, Flutter like marvellous butterflies, With their brilliant orange and green glow.


By Vrinda Tiwari इस वतन-ए-हिन्द में मची तबाही की कहानी है ये शाही इख़्तियारत की खिदमत कर रहे ए हिंदुस्तान के हामील इन हुकुमकारों की बेईमानी की कहानी है ये हिन्दू मुस्लिम सिख ईसाई मज़हब के नाम पर हुए बटवारे से डर मत ऐ दोस्त


By Vrinda Tiwari दरिंदों की कैद से छूटा वो जिस्म पर वो रूह की चीखें आज भी आबाद हैं वीरान है ये दिल फ़िलहाल पर अपने वजूद पर आज भी सवाल बेशुमार हैँ
