Bhool gayi tum....


Bhool gayi tum...

Jab purani Maruti800 mein hum Murthal aloo ke paranthe khaane jaate the...
Jab sayani se kudi ban kar hum tum thulle ka popat bana kar aate the...
Jab Mughal sarai ke ande khaane mein tumhari train choot jaya karthi thi...
Jab PSR ki tang galiyon mein mujhe mana kar tum khud hi ruth jaya karthi thi...

Bhool gayi tum...

Jab priya ki 7rs wali ticket lekar front row mein hum picture dekha karthe the...
Jab MAMC ke prakash shikanji wale par hum bottoms-up kiya karthe the..
Jab Mandi house ke theatre mein bina ticket hum play dekha karthe the...
Jab dariyaganj sunday market mein premchand par mol-bhaav kiya karthe the...

Bhool gayi tum...

Jab CP Keventers par vanilla milkshake se tum nakli moochein banathi thi..
Jab Qutub ke Iron pillar par dono hathon ke milne par itraathi thi, itlathi thi...
Jab India gate par budiyaa ke baal noch noch kar mujhe khilaya karthi thi...
Jab Dariba kalan par tum rang-birangi chooriyaan hathon mein sajaya karthi thi...

Bhool gayi tum....

Jab Lotus temple ke andar shor macha kar mujhe aage kar diya karthi thi...
Jab Purana Qila ke hijjade aaane par mujhe peeche kar sabko theek kar diya karthi thi..
Jab British Library ke mej par "no-more-plz" keh aaundhe muh so jaya karthi thi..
Jab Bittu bataashe wale par "one-more-plz" keh kar golgappe thunsa karthi thi...

Bhool gayi tum....

Jab Pragati maidan ke Trade fair mein hum luka-chuppi khela karthe the...
Jab Chatharpur ke mandir mein do-sau ki bheed se prasad ka kela laya karthe the..
Jab Lodhi garden mein hari ghaas mein baithe hum dhoop saikha karthe the..
Jab Cathedral church ki seedhiyon par tumhare roop par cheta-kaashi karthe the..

I miss Delhi a little... I guess you could say, a little too much, a little too often, and a little more each day !!


PS: You may go anywhere in this world...there is nothing like your hometown. It will always remain special and will carry nostalgic memories. For me, Delhi will always hold importance for those reasons, those remembrances and those romantic moments. Happy Independence Day to all....Cheers!

maine ise padh k saara delhi ghum liya...

very sweet simple and honest!
the innocent in it is just mind boggling and i cud relate to it and actually realize in life lil things keep on adding on and go on making it all the more beautiful...
just more than livable...

and yes home-town has a deep impact on our minds... no matter wherever u go... u end up comparing everything at other places with ur home-town... and falling in love with it all over again!

Keep govin..

Hi HR...
Awww...I love Delhi too...n this is such an amazing post!
It’s romantic n patriotic in the same breath!
Something only u could have done!

I enjoy Delhi more than Mumbai...
More open spaces to breathe...
More character...almost like an exploration!

Mumbai seems to be grasping n clasping u from all sides with its high rising buildings...soooo congested n always on the move!

Waise woh hain kaun jo yeh sab bhool gaye...?
Uske himmat kaise hue itnaaaaaaaaaaa cute sab bhoolne ke?;-)

Vinnie said...

@Gargi

Thanks, everyone has preferences they are entitled too. Sometimes you don't realise what you have till it is take away from you.

Cheers,
Amit

@Vishal

Thanks, i appreciate that.

Cheers,
Amit

Hopeless Romantic said...

@Megha

Thanks, you should know it equally better than me. It is good to be away for "experience" purposes, but there is nothing like the home town where you grow up.

Love,
Amit

@Suruchi Di

Thanks for the appreciation. I am not a big fan of Mumbai, it is one of the most over rated cities i have visited in my life. If not for the enormous financial industry, it would not have half the impact...but this is all hypothetical thoughts. I would not prefer any city over Delhi.

Ishq nahin Mitha kisi ke chale jaane se, yeh woh aag hain jo jalthi hain apno ke saaatane se ;-)

Love,
Amit

@Vinnie

Thanks! I can write another post contradicting your points. Cities improve, Delhi has...pollution has reduced (green buses!), traffic has reduced (Delhi metro), congestion is something which depends on the population which is again whole India's problem. In short, Delhi is much better than Mumbai !

Thanks,
Amit

PS: I don't think in any way it was the intention of the post to cite the negatives of a city. it had an altogether different connotation to it. take care :)

I am perfectly agreed. Delhi is far far better then Mumbai.
I really miss Delhi so much and this little sweet poem bring tears to my eyes. It is really tuff to survive in Delhi, the only respect in which Mumbai is better is regarding law and order and night life.
