God Bless You


Some gestures, however small they might seem – are so special. To me, one such gesture is when someone tells me “God Bless You”. It makes my heart skip a beat and really pulls a string in my heart.

ऐ हवाऐ उसे मेरा पेगाम पहु़ंचा देना (With English Translation)


ऐ हवाऐ उसे मेरा पेगाम पहु़ंचा देना…

ऐ हवाऐ उसे मेरा पेगाम पहु़ंचा देना,
आज शाम उसे छूकर जब तुम गुज़रो,
उसके बाल ज़रा मेरी और से सहला देना…
उसके कंधे जो बोज़ से हो दबे,
उन्हें ज़रा मेरी और से हल्का कर देना…

Home Is Where The Heart Is


Miles away I went,
Bidding adieu to that bunch of special people,
Saying goodbye was hard,
A tear ran down my cheeks,
I hid it, feigning to be strong & happy..

Miles away I went,
Like a bird that flies away every winter,
Exploring new lands,
I looked behind to find my flock,
Indeed they were lost in the wide sky,
Flying to different lands..

Miles away I went,
Chasing my dreams like never before,
Exploring a whole new world,
Heart filled with wonder,
Dreams lit up my eyes,
I smiled, knowing this is where I want to be..

Miles away I went,
I knew there was no turning back,
New pals I made,
New paths I treaded,
New dreams I saw,
Newness engulfed me like tides in the ocean..

Miles away I went,
A new world I made here,
Right from the very scratch,
A home away from home,
To fill the void that remained incised,
In the corners of my heart..

Miles away I went,
Flying like a free bird,
Roaring like a lion,
Shining like a pearl,
Dreaming like there is no tomorrow,
Painting my life with colours of glee..

Miles away I went,
I saw a child one day,
Holding tight to his mother,
As they drove to his school,
Longing filled me to go back to that time,
When cricket and chocolates were all we cared about..

Miles away I went,
No matter what,
Homecoming I still look forward to,
Family, friends and home,
Just the very thought,
Electrifies my smile a thousand volts..

Because, home is where the heart is..
