City of Stars

Hello All, today I am sharing few lines about my Birthplace Amroha a city of the Uttar Pradesh state in India. It is located north-west of Moradabad. These lines are not enough to describe the heart and soul of it but still would like to share them on the occasion of Eid as this festival is brightly celebrated here.

City
That defines me,
My worth of a few smiles,
Marks a million to me,
I cherish and rely.
The winds never changed,
Circulated and stayed,
The sands and walls that engrained.
Oh! They’re attached
With the eyes of blind love
The heart and soul of a dove.

City that celebrates moments and memories,
Eids, Diwali, Christmas, or baisakhis.

Where varieties of mangoes that are found,
I buy outside but miss the sweetness profound.
My city I was born with Candy’s so raw
Like the tingly taste of sourness poured.
My city where the best variety of biryani’s served,
Appetizing with spices and flavours savoured.
My city of charming scents of spells
They say who pray here never goes to hell
My city, my roots
Strongly so blend, the streets, the honks,
The vendors and friends
My city is whispers of love, emotions I believe
It is where I woke up to the world and is where I’d fall asleep.

Beautiful Jama Masjid in Amroha, Uttar pradesh
More than 100 kgs of biryani cooked at a place.
Prayers on Eid in Amroha

There is a lot to write about the place, I shall make a separate blog for that. Thanks for reading!

Eid Mubarak!

Socha toh tha..

सोचा तोह था

कि दूर कहीं बादलों को चीर रहे होंगे,
कि कहीं आसमां भी धधक उठेगा मेरे आगमन की ध्वनि से।
सोचा तोह था…
कि नदी को रास्ता और समन्दर की गहराई को भी छू लेंगे
कि मछलियां भी सहम उठेगी मेरे आगमन की ध्वनि से।
सोचा तोह था कि
सबसे शक्तिशाली जीव बनके मनुष्य को भगवान बनादेंगे
कि ईश्वर भी आश्चर्यचकित हो उठेगा मेरी उपलब्धियों
की हानि से
सोचा तोह था..पर सोच उसी बक्से में बंद रेहगई
जिसमें सोचा था
कि एक वायरस को रखकर शोध करेंगे ।
