Tera Karam

Tera hi karam
mere saath hi chala
mere saath hi ruka
mujh pe raha har dam tera karam
tera hi karam
chalta hum sabpe tera jadoo

All what remains is my love for you

Khoon Chala

Khuli si chot lai kar
Bari si tees lai kar
Khoon chala

The soul rinses passion
Desire to stand out
To destroy everything which comes in way
Though blood is not the requirement
To stop the blood shed an objective

Kuch kar guzarne ko khoon chala

Here I sit in this empty room
Curtains drawn, darkness around
silence prevailing
thinking of all I love and all I hate.
Looking at you again and again.

Oh Painkiller!!
Kill the pain
Dull the senses
Strip the nerves

Bare the soul
Dumb down what was strong
Decaying Fortitude
and relentless without restraint

Eid mubarak 2010

Eid ul Fitar Mubarak to everyone around
May this eid bring joy to your life
And hopefully you do not forget the ones which are in need

Chaand Raat (Day 30 of 30)

Finally the Ramadan came to an end, and so does my whole series
This was the last picture of the project and well it started with a moon ended with some bangles and mehndi... Celebrating the joy of eid but something is missing this time. The color I guess, not because I love darkness but because there has been so many bad things happening all around us the disasters and deaths are so many that the joy of eid can not cater the masses which have been effected

So a prayer for everyone that may everything becomes fine for everybody

And Chaan Raat Mubarak to everyone

The Bud (Day 29 of 30)

The bud looks as beautiful as the actual flower, though the fragrance is usually missing but the beauty is there.
To look through things to extract the true beauty is an art

Captivating Mosque (Day 28 of 30)

I try to capture it through my lens yet the beauty and the true divine nature of it can never be captured even if we pour our heart out in the click.
Badhsahi Mosque is one of my all times favorite and it forever will be

Parcham (Day 27 of 30)

Ek izzat hai
ek rooh hai
ek jaan hai
ek junoon hai
Iss sabz parcham ki
ek hi justuju hai.
Per sach poocho
toh yaad nahi kab
Shayad bohut saal hue tab
saundhi khushbu soonghi thi maine apne watan ki
Ab toh khoon hi khoon hai
aur gosht ke tukre
Ya khuda tujh say yehi hai dua
iss parcham ko har dam lehrata rakh
Kahin zor ke jhonke se urr hi na jaye
Yeh watan humesha salamat rahay.

Namaz (Day 26 of 30)

My greatest weapon is a silent prayer, which I offer to God as Namaaz is the key to heaven, and a part which is quite essential with it is Faith, as faith unlocks the door.

South African Glazed Cake (Day 25 of 30)

One of the most mouth watering cake which mum makes
Layers of chocolate, coffee, peaches and fresh cream... Mouth watering indeed

Sukhi Siyaahi (Day 24 of 30)

I'm sitting here in a complete silence
With a small piece of paper
And an old black pen
While it rains...

Slowly the water seeping,
into me,
my paper,
my memories,
my pen mixing with ink,
my thoughts which were calling me to write...

Everything washed away...

Bus ab ek kalam hai
aur ek kaghaz
Na umeed hai
Na hasrat koi
Bus sukhi siyaahi

A Rainy Road (Day 23 of 30)

Forever is but a moment,
Forever is the rain.
The rain fell yet again,
in the form of heart-shaped drops,
like a broken lovers' heart crashing,
the kind of rain that you catch on your tongue
and spin with your arms widespread in...

Yes forever is a rainy path,
on which we forever walk.
A rainy road every foot will take.
Where dark corners lie on every bend,
hiding decisions that we make.


listening to the rhythm,
listening to the drops falling
on this road, while yellow boundary pleases the eye...

Sky remains dark
while some hearts moan,
for them loneliness grays,
while future forlorn...

Cerebral masks

Truth, mystery; lies,
Facts, all are blurred
Hidden behind the cerebral masks

Khaaq se bane tum
Khaaq se bane hum

Ajab yeh zamane ka dastoor hai
Chehron ke nakshay hi badal gaye

Barsa (Day 21 of 30)

 Hua yun raat yeh
Kuch baadal bari zor se barse
Shayad uss ka bhi safar khatam hone ko hai
