मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ

मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
बेअदब सा मैं खुमार हूँ
अब मुश्किलों से क्या डरूं
मैं खुद कहर हज़ार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ

उंच-नीच से परे
मजाल आँख में भरे
मैं लड़ रहा हूँ रात से
मशाल हाथ में लिए
न सूर्य मेरे साथ है
तो क्या नयी ये बात है
वो शाम होता ढल गया
वो रात से था डर गया
मैं जुगनुओं का यार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ

भावनाएं मर चुकीं
संवेदनाएं खत्म हैं
अब दर्द से क्या डरूं
ज़िन्दगी ही ज़ख्म है
मैं बीच रह की मात हूँ
बेजान-स्याह रात हूँ
मैं काली का श्रृंगार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ

हूँ राम का सा तेज मैं
लंकापति सा ज्ञान हूँ
किस की करूं आराधना
सब से जो मैं महान हूँ
ब्रह्माण्ड का मैं सार हूँ
मैं जल-प्रवाह निहार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ

It’s jury time once again

reflections and collections

As a design teacher, I have often been requested for tips from students as to how to prepare for the semester ending juries. Reflecting upon my observations as a jury member in several juries at both undergrad and post grad levels, both at NID and other design institutes, I am attempting to put together my thoughts here.

From the semester 5 jury of Sonakshi Botham, UG Graphic Design, October 2013. NID From the semester 5 jury of Sonakshi Botham, UG Graphic Design, October 2013. NID

For the non-design readers, Juries are like an open viva at the end of the semester, in which the student presents all her academic work done in that semester. There are several courses, which the student has already undertaken in the semester, each one of which is evaluated by the course faculty. There is display of selected work done in various courses. The students often chooses to support her defense with an on-screen presentation (the software does not matter, whether it…

Good Things 

#throwback #poetry

Good things, they make us happy,

It’s best when it’s “on” in all its glory,

It feels “alive”,

They become a part of our lives ,

and even in bad times , it feels OK.

they impart energy to every little piece that’s attached to them,

they make us stronger ,

they make us feel ” like a King “,

and as “all things” , when they begin to end,

they lend us “tears” so that we are not out of emotions ,

they make us feel proud , they make us feel “good” ,

till the and of our lives .

and they remain in our memories forever , as “good old things ” .
