Log toot jaate hain EMI chukaane main,
Tum zara nahi taras khaate yun bhag jaane main.
Baarish ki ek boond ko taras gaya wo,
Boodein jab chalki, apni bitiya ke saamne latak raha tha wo.
Usne calander banaye, jaam chalkaaye,
Na jaane kin kin nashon se loan pass karwaaye
Zameen girvi rakhi thi banno ki Shaadi main,
Dheere dheere pura parivaar bik gaya kundli ka dosh hataane main.
Iss beech ek akhbaar uthata hai ek insaan,
Thoda bulbulata hai, thoda taras khata hai… phir kehta hai, mera ho gaya…main middle class.
Note: First Sher is copied from Bashir Badr Sahaab’s sher.
Bhag gaya tha woh apne gaanv ko paraya samajhkar,
Ab maara maara phirta hai parayon ko apna samajhkar.
Badi badi imaaraton ne moh liya tha uska mann,
Phir kyun baar baar yaad karta tha nadi kinaare waala bachpan.
Mashoori ki chaahat main dhal gayi jawaani,
Shaurat jisne dilayi wo thi Nani kids kahaani.
Tehzeeb jab apne gaanv ki bachon ko sikhlayi,
Unhe yeh lecturebaazi raas na aayi.
Budhape ke station se jab waapas gaanv ka rukh kiya,
‘Arey kahaan reh gaye the bhaiya’, yeh bolkar gaanv ne swaagat kiya.
Everybody knows which one is the greater entity between Love and Religion. But often when they are at war, the lesser one wins and Humanity loses.
Well to put in simpler terms, the ultimate goal of religion is to fall in love with God and the ultimate goal of love is well, to fall in love. This means that religion is born out of love. Then why religion is so arrogant and love is full of fears. Why does Religion is on sale at places of worship and love meets secretly in these places. See, one thing is certain, Love with all its complexities is difficult to understand. Period. That’s why our ancestors might have thought let’s create a means to flirt with God, if we can’t fall in love with the Almighty. So, religion was invented as a means to flirt with God. Now, because there are a thousand ways to flirt, so we have thousands of religions. Each one tutoring us about the best way to flirt with God. But none of them teaches us love, because you can learn about love only by falling in love.
Due to simplicity and a very good marketing strategy fuelled by fear, over the years Religion has become very popular, so it is natural for it to grow arrogant and powerful. It uses this power to brainwash us and stay away from Love. This is the how the enterprise called Religion functions. When our soul begins to dry up due to lack of love, Religion loans us an opportunity to flirt with God and keeps us indebted till we wither away.
Aaj ke akhbaar ke hain bas do yaar
Ek hai pakodewaala Pooranlal
Aur duji hai humaari sarkaar
Phela Garam Garam Pakodon
main Masaalon ka kare aisa phair
Ki pait saaf huyi jaave…
main maslon ka aisa kare phair
Ki Brainwash hui jaave…
Tujhe Allah ne banaya hai,
Mujhe bhagwaan ne banaya hai,
Prem bhagwaan ne banaya hai,
Ishq Allah ne banaya hai,
Par yeh nahi pata hum dono ko kisne milaya hai…
Maine apni prathna ki,
Tumne apni ibadat
Par yeh nahi pata kismein thi zyada taaqat
Shayad yeh Bhagwaan aur Allah ki mili bhagat ka natija hai
Aisi mili bhagat jisse aam log toh kya Sarkarein bhi darr jaati hain
Daraar daalne ke liye jo kya kuch nahi kar jaati hain
Par khair Sarkarein badalti rahengi
Subsidy ghatti badhti rahengi
Par humein usse farak kya padna hai
Teri aankhon main mere prem ka maansarovar jhalkta hai
Aur meri aankhon main tere ishq ka haji basta hai
Isn’t it? I will be better the next time around
