Gunjte Alfaaz

Sometimes, when you look out of the window on a lazy summer afternoon, you start contemplating.

The sun is soaring; all the trees and plants merely bow down to the glare giving shade to the sleeping dogs that have no purpose in life. Everything seems… static.

But is that how life’s supposed to be?

The clocks ticks away, the weather changes and everything is suddenly in full motion. The summer afternoon was simply a phase.

We need to get out of our  dull phases and look at life from a new perspective.

Gunjte Alfaaz is a song that talks about how life is so much more than just 70 years of existence. There is so much to see, so much to learn and so much to be inspired from, even from the drops of rain that cheer us as they fall from the mighty heavens.

The song was written by Venugopal Shah with the help of Madhawam Agrawal of IIIrd year. It was later on composed and sung by Venugopal and Pravit Tuteja and Yash Saxena completed the song by featuring on the guitar.

The song is written in Hindi, and the music genre is ambient.

 

Kyu teri zindagi, ruki hui si lagti hai

Ik baar tu aankhe kholde zara

Teri hi hai yeh zameen, tera aasmaan

 

Pal yeh pal jo chale jate hai, kyu tujhko tadpaate hai

Mere yaara sunle zara

Kehti hai kya tujhse yeh khamoshiya

 

Teri hi hai yeh duniya, khudh ko bhula mat tu

Matlab tu dhundta kyu, khud me samaya hai tu

 

Kyu yeh madhoshi me, tu jee raha hai

Hai ghadi ke kaante tere aage

Jab tak tu na uthe, uthke bhaage

 

Kyu tere kadam ye, yu tham se gaye hai

Yu na muh modh le, aage badhta ja

Rasta roke koi, tu na ladhkadha

 

Teri hi hai yeh duniya, khudh ko bhula mat tu

Matlab tu dhundta kyu, khud me samaya hai tu

 

Sahaara le tu apni panah se

Gunjenge alfaaz tere iss jaha me

Chal ab saath tu mere yaara

Tujhko pukaare yeh jahaan saara

 

Kyu is dil ki dhadkan, khamosh ho jati hai

Ik baar tu bhi iss junoon me jhum zara

Jaise baarish ki bundo ki mastiya

 

Teri hi hai yeh duniya, khudh ko bhula mat tu

Matlab tu dhundta kyu, khud me samaya hai tu

Dhal jayegi yeh raat, chhodna mat tu apna saath

Tu jeeya hai, aur jiyega, kehti hai teri harr saans

Happy Mother’s Day

I am your mother,

You are my child.

I am your quiet place,

You are my wild.

I am your calm face,

You are my giggle.

I am your wait,

You are my wiggle.

I am your dinner,

You are my chocolate cake.

I am your bed time,

You are my wide awake.

I am your lullaby,

You are my peek-a-boo.

I am your goodnight kiss,

You are my ‘I love you‘.

From the time we were born, until the age we are now, there has always been one person totally invested in our happiness: mother.

All she wants in life is to provide for us and protect us. A mom’s unconditional love is truly unmatched.

Here are the  ways in which our moms are our first best friend.

  1. She always comes to your defence.
  2. She genuinely cares about what you’re doing with your life.
  3. She endured Disney in all forms just to see you happy
  4. She’s the only one who cares if you wore a sweater. Or brought an umbrella, or needed a tissue, or had a bad dream, or ate enough for dinner. Mom thinks about all the little stuff that has a big impact on your well being.
  5. She’ll always give you the benefit of the doubt.
  6. She wants to see you succeed without any reward for herself.
  7. She makes you feel special. She’ll keep you on the phone for hours just to listen to the most trivial parts of your day. She’ll take the time to stock up on your favourite foods when you’re only coming home for a weekend.
  8. She cares about your appearance more than you do.
  9. She’ll celebrate your birthday more than her own.
  10. She’s the only person who knows how to shop for you.
  11. She’s always down to split her meal with you. And then eat less of it because she’s suddenly really full. She really always wants the best for you, even when it’s just lunch.
  12. She loves to listen to you brag. Besides your grandma, your mom is the only other person who genuinely likes to hear about your extensive accomplishments. Even if it’s something as small as, “I made my own lunch today!” Mom wants to know about it.

We love you mom.

Happy Mother’s Day
