A unique poetic conversation . This piece is a witness of an epic poetic conversation, we ‘writers’ from India and Pakistan had… How a brilliant poem can lead to strings of other poems. Each originating from the same original piece… diverging in different directions and culminating in the same conclusion…

And the host of the original poem… Randomly Abstract, and the other authors… Miss Maqsood, White Pearl and myself Introvert (I know… I know… the last link is not necessary but still… for completeness sake)

Tread One: Reaching the ultimate goal

Randomly Abstract (The Original)

Mae dosry shehar me rehti hun
Mae tum jesi ho hi nahi sakti
Mera karna dharna mery rasm o riwaj
Mera dharam bharam mera kappra libaas
Kbhe tum jesa ye ho nhi sakta.
Mae jeeti alag hun marti alag hun
Khati alag hun peeti alag hun
Tmhary shehar me baarish hoti hogi
Meray shehar me sirf khoon hy barasta
Meray shehar me aag hae jalti
Meray shehar me lashein haen girti
Tum apny shehar ki baarish ko
Kuch waqt yahan kia bhej nhi sakteen?

Introvert

Bhale alag ho rasm o riwaaz
Ek hi hoti hai dil ki aawaaz
Alag ho bhaasha, alag ho dhang
Alag nahin hai khoon ka rang
To kyun samajhti hai khud ko alag
Jab ek hi aag rahi dil mein sulag?

Haan barasta hai yahan baadal se paani
Par yahan har boond ki hai alag kahaani
Khushi se naachti hai ye boondein dharti ki god mein
Zindagi ka paigaam le daurti har daal mein
Par kabhi rote hue ke gham ko dhakti hain ye boondein
Aur kabhi ishwar ke aanshoo ban tapakti hain ye boondein

Kya tujhe aisi hi baarish mein hai nahana?
Khushi se hai naachna, ya gham ko hai chhupana?

Randomly Abstract

Khushi se hae naachna ya gham ko hae chupana?
Well..
Both?
Pain will reach ecstasy, ecstasy will cross pain.
Tears will collide with laughter and I will go insane.

Introvert

So come along the path O sister!
Come along through heart’s way
I will be waiting in the rain
Come along your heart’s sway

And then together we will just wander
With the breeze; in the rains
We will laugh our hearts out
Free the emotions bound in chains

And then O sister! We would just stand
Just to hear a falling drop
The tiny drop of mighty rain
Meeting its destiny and brought to stop

You may then cry; and cry aloud
As none but me would see your tears
The sound of thunder would mask your sound
And drops of rain would hide your fears

We would thus laugh and cry in rain
And journey through loss and gain
Pain will reach ecstasy, ecstasy will cross pain.
Tears will collide with laughter and we will go insane.

Randomly Abstract

I will come, and you will see
So we’ll rejoice and dance with glee!

None but us, just me and he
To world will we say goodbye and flee.

Introvert

Flee to the lands of freedom and smiles
Where joy seems sprinkled across the miles
Serenity prevails and home finds peace
There are no tears and strife does cease

Where clouds of agony and pain are destroyed
A-midst the peace; what remains is void
Showers of blessings inundate the soul
We came from void, and back there is our goal

Miss Maqsood

Na tum ho mujh se juda
Na main hoon tumse alag
Ho bhala shehr alag, desh alag
Ya gharane alag
Par zameen wahi jis pe tumne ghar banaye
Mera asmaan wahi jo tumhara chhat hai
Hoti hogi baarsaat yahan
Aata hoga sawaan yahan
Par tum kya janoun yeh badal kyun rotey hain yeh kyun kadakte hain
Tumhare ghar se guzarte yeh yahan aate hain
Usney wo aag dekhi hai jiska humne sirf zikr suna hain
Yeh boondein khushi ki nahin
Yeh gham aur bebasi k ansuhain
Jo badal ki aankh se nikalte
Yeh un badalou ko na rok sake
Jissey khoon barsata hai
Yeh aag na bujh sakein jisne tumhare ghar jalayein
Yeh mehez paani k qatrey nahi hain
Yeh nidamat k aansu hain
Jo badal aake yahan barsaate hain
Aur pados ki kahani ro ro kar sunate hain
Tumchahti nidamat k aansu wahan barsey?
Nahi, pados mein, kuch log hain bastey
Kuch tumhare khair-khwah hai sacche
Inki khwahish hai tumko dekhe hanstey bastey…

Randomly Abstract

Wo aag waqai nhi dekhi.
Sirf zikar hi suna hy.
Nhi janti thi ke ye baadal
Usi ka pegham dety haen
Ye bonden tab bhi girti theen?
Ye ansu tab bhi behty the
Wo tab bhi sulagty the
usi kisi aag me jalty the
‘lashen girti rehti theen’
bijli chamakti rehti thi
phir ruk gyi thi na khoon ki holi?
baarish bhi phir tham hi gyi thi
Ansu aj bhi girty haen
bebasi aj bhi hansti hy!

White Pearl

Shehar alag hotay hun gay Mulk alag hotay hun gay
Per is aarzi had-bandi se Dil tu alag naheen hotay
Khoon ka rang bhi surkh rehta hai , Safaid naheen ho jata
Dil aik sath dharakta hai, dour rehnay se koi ghair naheen ho jata
Dukh tu sab k saanjhay hotay hain, ye deewarain gir jaen gi
Ansu ponchnay ko hath tu barhao, deewarain kuch na ker paen gi
Aik jism hai aik hi rooh , Abhi kuch insaaniyat baaki hai
Ye zulm kernay walay naheen jantay, Allah hamara saathi hai
Barishain bhi aen gi, shaadmanay bhi bajain gay aik din
Bus pyar ko thamay rakho, Insaan ‘aik’ hun gay aik din
Abhi tu No-javanu ne Iqbal ka shaheen banna hai, wo waqt ay ga
Jab ye simta hua Sehraa aik baar pher zameen pe pahil jaay ga
Aman ki Bansuri bajaay gi Jab Koi khoon na bahaay ga

Introvert

Aur phir jab baadal garjenge
Garaj-garaj phir barsenge
Jab naachega phir se saawan
Pulkit kar man-van-upvan
Prafullit ho jab snigdh pawan
Daurega harshit kar har man
Tab zanjeerein khul jaayengi
Deewaren bhi gir jaayengi
Phir ek honge hamare sheher
Gaaon nadiyan, sagar, neher
Ek hogi dil ki aawaaz
Shanti ka hoga naya aagaaz

Randomly Abstract

Jantay ho kia
Mery shehar me barish barsi thi!
Han mery shehar me
Bonnden giri theen
Badal bhi garjay the
Bijli bhi chamki thi
Ansu bhi tapky the
Aur qehqahy bhi gonjy the!

Weeran si basti me
Kahen jal bujh jal bujh krti
Roshnian bhi bikhri theen

Zanjiren bhi toti theen
Sehra bhi simty the
Shehar bhi sab jurr gae the
Nadyan sagar nehren sab
Akhir mil ke ek hue the

Ya phir shayad

Ye phir shayad ek khwab tha ye sab
Ye khait to sary sookhy haen!
Nadyan sagar nehren basti
Kab hi mil paen ge akhir?
Kia barish waqai barsey gi?
Kia aansu waqai tapken ge?

Introvert

Mujhe to baadal dikhte hain
Jazbaaton ke, armaanon ke
Matwaale kadam bhi dikhte hain
Thirakte us saawan ke

Dekh ri pagli is baarish ne
Bhaashaa ke bandhan torr diye
Alfaazon ki tubandi ne
Laakhon man jhakjhor diye
Hindi Urdu Angrezi ne
In sarhadon ko bhi paar kiya
Shabdon ki is aandhi ne
Har deewar par hai waar kiya
Alag alag in sharahon mein
Ek saath hai barsaat hui
Ek sur mein log bole hain
Ek nazm mein ye baat hui

Tu dekhna kabhi in baaton ko
Shabdon ko alfaazon ko
Har bachcha bachcha gaayega
Aur isi tarah in mulkon mein
Shaanti ka paigaam failaayega

Phir dekhna baarish barsegi
Khushiyon ke saugaaton ki
Aur khushi ke aansu tapkenge
Hum dono ke aankhon se!

Randomly Abstract

Ab dekh lia ke toot gaye
Wo bandhan sary ‘bhasha’ ke
Wo talwaren bhi nayam me gyeen
Wo ansu bhi sab sookh gaye
Kash ke ruk jae sabhi
Aur na bahey phir khoon kabhi
Kash ke phir na lahu girey
Na tapkay phir ansoo koi
Kash ke aesy hi tham jae
Wo jang bhi akhir ab ruk jae
Kash ke phir na nafrat ho
Kash phir sirf rugbat ho.
