is a farce, a farrago of looming travesty and hidden veracity !
This is dedicated to all the girls out there. You are the pride of each and every nation. You might not say it out loud, but it doesn’t require a genius to see your true mettle. You are the creator and the protector and also an annihilator when time calls for it. You are the flowers that beautify a garden. You are the ferocious river that forge its own path. You are everything from simplicity to perfection!! So this poem (english and hindi) goes for you:-
Janami thi mai jis din ek nannhi si kali banke,
Bulaya tha sabne mjhe pari aur jhulaya tha haske.
Gulaab ki kopal si komal, barf ke gole si gori,
Naazuk si jaan bngyi najane kitno ki muskan.
Hui mai badi, mere kadmo me aai thodi jaan,
Ungli pakad kar meri sbne sikhaya bharna udaan.
Khelti thi, khilkhilati thi, kbhi hasti to kbhi rojati thi,
Par jo bhi karti thi, mayus chahro ko khush kr jati thi.
Kbhi tutlati, kbhi naak fulati, kbhi chillati aur kbhi sojati,
Sote sote na jaane kin sapno me khoti aur kitne sajati.
Sabki ankho ka taara ban apni meethi awaz sunati,
Kohinoor kahke sab bulate aur mai sharma k chhip jati.
Hu mai sabki ladli , sbki pyari aur dulaari,
Bhar deti thi angna ghar ka leke ek kilkari.
Jaise jaise hui mai badi maano kuch badalta gaya,
Pahuchna to tha chaand tk, pr chaand bhi kahi chhip gaya.
Lakshya ho jitna bhi bhari, sambhal leti mai wo bhar,
Par najane kaunsi thi wo bediyan jo rokne lagi bar bar.
Udna tha sikhaya jis pari ko khule neele aasmaan mai,
Najane kaun kaat raha hai uske pankh beech maidan mai.
Wajood hai mera, sapne hai mere, jeena hai abhi mujhe,
Choona hai asmaan, aur pahuchna hai chaand taro k paar mujhe.
Rokna mat, kohinoor hoon, sab hansil karjaungi,
Jo sath na mila, to bin sahare hi jag jeet laungi.
Hoon to mai ab bhi sabki ankho ka taara,
Par ab is taare ko bhi jalna hoga,
aur jalke is duniya ko andhere me roshan krna hoga.
Jo na kiya maine is sansaar se andhkaar ko door,
To janam lengi pariyan aur kho dengi pankh hoke majboor.
Born as a beautiful sapling I waddle,
Epithet as angel everyone rocked my cradle.
Softer than a rose petal, fairer than the snow,
My delicacy became everyone’s smile and glow.
As I grew up and I began to stride,
Holding my finger I was taught to glide.
I laughed, I enjoyed, I smiled and I cried,
Brought on gloomy faces – smiles so wide.
I stuttered, I fumbled, I screamed and slept,
In sleeps I dreamt, dreams where I leapt.
Apple of everyone’s eyes I sung in my sweet voice,
On being called a diamond I hid without giving a choice.
Growing into adolescence things started to change,
My aim was moon but it waned out of sight and got strange.
No matter the responsibility I could carry the weight,
But those were the shackles that bound me constraint.
An angel was taught to drift across the open blue sky,
But someone has been breaking the wings so that I don’t fly.
I exist, I dream, I aspire to live and break the bars,
I wish to fly beyond the moon, the sun and the stars.
Don’t stop me, I am the glitter that will outshine all,
Even single handedly I can win wars and conquer all.
Albeit I am still the apple of most eyes while others remark,
But this star has to burn to spread its light in this darkness stark.
And if I fail to conquer the darkness and spread my light,
Angels will take birth and continue losing their wings without flight.
It is not the facet of the white moonlight,
But your smile that wanes out the darkness.
It is not the facet of a gentle breeze on a hot day,
But the flinging of your hairs that brings coolness.
It is not the quirk of a setting sun,
But your lips that Color the roses red.
It is not the quirk of a dense branched tree,
But your beautiful thatch hair that provides shed.
It is not the trait of a sparrow or a cuckoo,
But your cadence voice that constructed notes.
It is not the trait of the ice blanket on mountains,
But your cheeks that gives white its colour quotes.
It is not the facet of the perennial rivers and streams,
But your eyes that gives depth to the giant ocean.
It is not the facet of the fireflies in the night,
But the pleasure of seeing you that makes stars twinkle with devotion.
It is not the quirk of a pearl born in its shell,
But your eyes that gives shape to the sun.
It is not the quirk of stars reflection on the sea,
But your traits that makes the heart of the zillions run.
It is not the facet of the fragrance in a parterre,
But your blissful form that keeps everyone breathing.
Chaand Ki Chandni Mein Woh baat kahan,
Yeh Toh Teri Muskan Hai Jo andhiyara mitati Hai.
Garmi me us Thandi Hawa Ke Naram jhonke Mein wo Baat Kahan,
Yeh Toh Teri zulfo ka jhatakna hai jo thandak pahuchati hai.
Doobte Suraj Ki Madhham se Lali Mein Woh Baat Kaha,
Yeh Toh Tere Honth Hain Jo Gulabo Mein Laal Rang bharte hai.
Ghane paedon ki dolti Hui Shakhaon Mein Woh Baat Kaha,
Yeh Toh Tere Ghane Baal Hai Jo chaanv dete Hain.
Papihe ki peehu aur Koyal ki kooho mai wo baat kaha,
Yeh to teri awaaz hai jisse Sur aur Taal bante hain.
Pahado par barf ki us chaadar mai wo baat kaha,
Ye to tere Gaal hai jo barf Ko gora karte hai.
Bahti hui in jheelon aur nadiyo me wo baat kaha,
Ye to teri ankhei hai jo Sagar Ko gahrai deti hai.
Raat ke andhere me chamchamte jugnuon me wo baat kaha,
Ye to tera Deedar hai jinse sitaare jagmaga uthte hai.
Seep mei janme naye Moti me wo baat kaha,
Ye to tere mast Nayan hai jo Sooraj Ko golakar dete hai.
Saagar par padte sitaaro ki chaadar ke pratibimb me wo baat kaha,
Ye to teri Ada hai jisse logo ke dilo ki dhadkane chalti hai.
Phoolu ke us baagh ki khushbu me wo baat kaha,
Ye to tera roop hai jisse saanso ki saansei bharti hai.

The poem was first written in Hindi, but I believe that the translation has came out pretty nicely. Hope you enjoy these verses!
There is nothin’ just like you is an imagination that taps into the deepest part of the heart. When we juxtopose the nature and someone we admire, even the beauty of the nature falls short. It is just a way to tell that beauty lies in the eyes of beholder! Everyone is beautiful and there is nothin’ just like you!😊
I would like to Thank Sameera for this wonderful opportunity of doing a colab with her!! It was an amazing experience..
I really hope that all our readers like this work of ours. 😊
Our words mingled so perfectly as if the verses were waiting for each other. With this work her amazing SS Poetry has transformed into SP poetry to mark the beginning of an amazing friendship. Our verses are all about the secrets we hide in the darkness, revealed by our words.
Although translations can never do justice to the original verse yet we tried our best to translate. ❤
Here’s goes the poem :
Madhoshiyan alfazo ki sunane lagi hai kahani nayi
Is lamhe mei raaz hai kayi
Sham dhalti hai taaron ki raat mei
Fizaein nayi hai is jazbaat mei
Khwab palkon par timtimate hai
Andheron ke parde par jagmagate hai
Bunti hai yeh duniya kahani nayi
Is lamhe mei raaz hai kayi.
Seep si palkon me band un motiyon mei
Cham cham karte kuch sapne sajte hai
Bin bole huye lafzon ke un aksharon me
Rim jhim karte dua-e-ishq baraste hai
Khwabon ke ye tazkire hai ek kahani nayi
Is Lamhe mei raaz hai kayi
Dhalti Hui raat ki us angdai Mai
Badalte huye karvaton ki duhaai hai
Dhadakte huye bechain se dilon Mai
Kisi ki ruswai to kisi aur ki parchhai hai
Mehtab mei kaid na jane kiski tanhai hai
Subah ke intzar mei dhalti angdai hai
Dhadakte huye bechain palon mei
Teri rooh aur teri hi parchhai hai.
Parinda hu un khwabon ka jinhe tumne sajaya
Khwahish hai tara banjau jisko tumne sarhaya
Odh lu tumhari baaton ki chaadar yahi
Tumhari is muskurahat Mai Raaz hai kayi.
Waqt ka ehsaas ho tum ya ho koi fairishte
Meri raat ko sajate tumhare sare rishte
Tum ho toh hai yeh baatein wahi
In baaton mei raaz hai kayi.
Is raat mei us baat ki muskurahat hai
Jiski mere darwaze par aj aahat hai
Bikhre ab mere saare yeh raaz hai
In lamhon mei gunjti tumhari aawaz hai
Madhoshiyan alfazo ki kehti hai baatei kayi
In lamhon mei kaid hai raaz wahi.
Intoxication of words tells the story just revived
Some secrets that these moments hide.
The evening morphs into a starry night
Creating an ambience of pristine feelings.
The eyes sparkle brightly with dreams
Scintillating amidst the darkness that veils.
The world is knitting a story just revived
Innumerable secrets these moments hide.
Closed in shell-like eyelashes are pearls
Where my dreams glitter
In letters of those unsaid words
Prayers for your love drizzle
This memorandum of our dreams is a story revived
Innumerable secrets these moments hide.
In the cavernous of the waning night
Are the cries of the insomniacs.
In the restlessness of a beating heart
Are the shadows of someone and treachery of others.
Prison in moon is an unknown emptiness
Awaiting the sunrise, stretching and setting
In palpitations of my heart lies your presence
Which are shadows of you and your essence
I am the bird with decorated feathers of your memories
Wishes to conquer the star you appreciate
In wrappings of your verses I confide
Like the secrets, your smiles hide.
You are the caress of time or perhaps an angel
As you and your affinity decorate my night.
Because of you, my verses are tied
Innumerable secrets these words hide.
This night is smiling because of a reason
Giving an inkling on my closed doors.
All the secrets lie out in open, scattered
As in this moment, your voice is echoing.
Intoxicated words these moments converse
Hidden beneath which are the secrets.

Thank you Sameera! 😊
Hello ! Hope that everyone is having a good day!
I wanted to share some of my attempts on making tattoo art. I realised that I can make tattoos during my college days, when I ‘accidentally’ made a tattoo on one of my friend’s hand (he was popular). It was appreciated by every fascinated onlooker.
I was later approached by many others, who were participating in various fashion events, to help them stand out from the crowd.
Well here are some:
My latest… Kakashi sensei.. For Naruto fans 😛
The shinigami Ryuk from Death Note
The Going Merry and Luffy from One Piece
My lovely dragons – brothers and sisters of Khalisi’s dragons 😛😛
The Logo of Fairytail !
My personal favourite on the right – Ace from One piece🔥
Ichigo with his bankai from Bleach🗡️
Hope you like some of them!
And if there are any anime fans there – Arigato for checking these out!!😊😊
