देखो आई होली, रंग लायी होली
चली पिचकारी उदा हैं गुलाल
बनके है घटा मन झूम उठा
रंग छलके हैं नीले हरे लाल

The festival of colours was celebrated in all its grandeur in our campus. So much that the colours have not come off yet, even after half a dozen sessions of rigorous cleaning. Probably because the colours of joy seldom come off.

Wishing you all a very colourful Holi and may it colour up your life with the पक्का colours...

Trip to my heart..

I recently made a trip to my heart, a trip I had been waiting for a long time (368 days to be precise). I started my journey on the 23rd of January. And reached the heart of the country on the 25th. Then friends, the 26th and the 27th went by very quickly. So quickly that would make the long wait seem a grain of sand on the line of time. But I stole a few memories from the trip. On of them was the journey itself. Posted here are a few snaps right out of my memories...

Words can not describe the journey... am quoting a stanza from one of my favorite songs:

बरसो बाद में घुमने निकली हु
ऐसा लगता हैं वोह किसी और सदी की बात थी
हाँ, शायद उन दिनों की बात होगी जब यह ईमारत अभी उझडी नही थी
हाँ? पिछले किसी जन्म की बात ही तो लगती है |
एक काम करें?
जब तक तुम यहाँ हो रोज़ घर पे खाने के लिए तो आया ही करोगी, खाने के बाद घुमने निकल आया करेंगे
कमसकम यह ईमारत कुछ दीनों के लिए तोह बस जायेगी |
