नज़र

विहगम, विहसते व्योन पे
चमकते चाँद के चरण-तल
तिल की तरह का तारा
कि
कहा नभ ने, लगा काजल की कोर
हनु पे स्मितप्रभ शिशु को,
"हाय! नज़र ना लगे किसी की नेरे शशि को!"

A plan went flat

It was after a break of 3 weeks that we got together to scale another height - only to find that half of the team was not available. But the enthusiasts persisted and we went ahead with our planning. Couple of guys chose to sleep with their phones switched off and the number plummeted even further.

Deja Vu

The two neighbors seldom have things going in tandem. I am talking about us and our neighbor country, Pakistan. However there has been some degree of similarity on both sides of the border lately.

Parliament is Supreme??????

Last six months the phrase has made rounds on the media more than any other. every political person went incessantly about beseeching supremacy of parliament and proving it otherwise in their actions. The most, the government. Anyone even remotely connected by the government, at the drop of his hat went into rhetoric of using the phrase.

हनु

उन आँखों से छलकती चमक
उस चेहरे पे फेली हुई दमक

खुले बिखरे घुंघराले वो बाल
दर्शाते मस्ती में बीते तीन साल

इतराते, बल खाते, ठुमकते पग
ज्यों मौज दौड रही हो रग-रग

वो स्नेहयुक्त उन्मुक्त आलिंगन
वो प्रेमसिक्त मीठा-सा चुंबन

Beating around the wrong bush

Scene 1:

  • RBI changed Repo rate and CRR

supposedly to contain inflation

Scene 2:

  • Petrol price increased by 1.85/-
  • Diesel and LPG prices all set to be increased
  • Govt not ready to give away part of tax being collected from sale of Petro-products, which actually is a big chunk and may impact whole economy immediately

The Reversal Series and the Media

Today the cricket series has come to an end. The result has been reverse of the one we witnessed last month. Indian team was whitewashed there and now has been the one to whitewash their competitors.

The reversal has not been limited to on-field performance. While the Indian fans were dejected in the previous set of encounters, they are on a high in the just-concluded series.
