makeup

Dry skin is a bummer. No kidding. It lands us in such irritable situations that there were times when we were tempted to dump a litre of some facial oil directly on our faces. And yes, those times when we wistfully looked at those well-hydrated skins of other girls and felt unreasonably jealous. And then when it comes to makeup, gah, due to the skin being as dry as a barren land, it looks all cakey and really ugly, but ... Read More »

अब और नहीं : ग़ज़ल

ghazal

Her spirit craves to come out of the shell and strives for the sky of her share! My Ghazal portrays the plight of a woman in search of her true self and identity. पथरीली  ज़मीं पे राहतें अब और नहीं, तपिश में जले पाँव, मंज़िल का कहीं ठौर नहीं. धूप में जलके मैंने, छाँव की क्या करली ख़्वाहिश, रेत में जली मग़र नख़लिस्तां में कहीं ठौर नहीं. दो ग़ज़ ज़मीं की थी तलाश, उन रहनुमाओं में, वहां तलक पहुँच हुई ...

कविता कहूँ या ग़ज़ल

kavita

For me, Hindi poetry (kavita) is a way of expressing my soft yet strong emotions. But similar feelings when conveyed through a ghazal, turn more romantic, beautiful and compact. Here’s how I tried to emote in both the ways. कविता मैंने धीमे से कुछ कहा सरसराती पत्तियों से, मेरे शब्द थे अपर्याप्त … चीखें नहीं, बस शब्द थे कुछ क्षीण… मधुर , कुछ उन्नींदे से, क्षण- भंगुर पर नींदें उड़ गयीं कई जब हवाओं ने सुना, और उड़ा ले गयीं ...
