जब जब मुड़कर देखा पीछे
तब तब पाया तुझे अपने संग
जब जब सजदे में तेरे
झुकाया अपना सर
तब तब पायी तेरी छाँव
तो क्या उन्होंने नहीं किया तेरा सजदा ?

कैसे तू हर पल देता है मेरा साथ
कैसे तू सेह लेता है मेरी रुस्वाई
क्या कभी तू परेशान नहीं होता
मेरी हर चीज़ की मन्नत से

मेरी सुनी तूने तो सुन ले उनकी भी  
क्यों अनसुनी कर दी तूने कुछ की इबादत  
क्या कोई  लॉटरी सिस्टम है तेरे यहाँ
जिसका नंबर लगा, कर दी उसकी मुराद पूरी 
जिसका नहीं लगा, उसको तूने भी कर दिया किनारे

माना की तू सबका मालिक है
पर क्या तेरे अंदर भी हमारी तरह एक दिल है?
अगर है तो क्यों नहीं तू सुनता सच्चे दिल की 
थोड़ी मुहब्बत थोड़ी सी हमदर्दी थोड़ी सी इंसानियत
थोड़ा थोड़ा  ही दे पर दे तो सही 

कब से देख रही हूँ तेरे ही नाम पे हो रही है सियासत
तेरे ही बन्दे बना रहे अपने जैसो को ही बंदी
ये कहाँ की दरियादिली है की तू सबको देता आशीर्वाद
जो किसी को मारे उसे  मिले तेरा साथ
और जो मरे उसे भी मिले तेरा हाथ
समझ नहीं आता अब ये खेल
क्या चाहता है तू?
करुँ तेरी इबादत या हो जाऊं तुझसे रुस्वा
अब तू ही बता करुँ तो क्या करुँ

बस हाथ ना दिखा कुछ तो कर
कब से कतार में खड़े है
अब तो कुछ बोल
अब तो दिखा अपना जलवा
एक आस ही तो है हमारे पास 
ये  टूटती आस  ना टूटने देना
जो ये आस टूटी तो तू भी टूटने से बच ना पाएगा
क्यूंकि आस ही है सबकी सांस , शायद तेरी भी |

The Colorful Walls

The fresh morning glory
Peeps through the curtains furtively
Nuzzles my forehead 
Snuggles my hair
Wakes me up from the slumber 
As I groggily widen apart my eyelids
The happy heart slumps on seeing the dumb walls
The old white wall scrapping off on the left and to the right too
Drab and dreary they appear
Do they reflect me?
No, nooo, not at all
Bright and colorful they will be
Just like me !
'Coz I choose to see my world in bright colors.

My house is my home, my little World where I come back to keep off all the worries and stress and dwell in the cosy comfy ambience to feel rejuvenated. And what makes one feel cheerful and energetic is the aura of the home. The colors play here a very important role. The bright, lively, blazing bold colors relieve the eyes, rejuvenate the spirit and fill you with a lively enthusiasm.

Diwali is approaching and this is the right time to give a makeover to my little world. The task of choosing the colors from so many shades and visualizing each of them in your room seems a tough task. But here comes bedbathmore to my rescue. It's a power package to all your queries and worries for the makeover of house. A website dedicated to home decor ideas and visualization. Yes! it gives you a peek-in to your imagination. Come, let's explore how it works.

According to Color psychology, colors affect our brain and changes our mood promptly. So let's repaint our world smartly.

Choose Smart Tools > Paint. And you will land on a page like shown below.

Living Room
Living room
The living room is the first room where our home opens up. It's where we spend most of our time indulging ourselves in one or the other activities. Since we spend most of our time here so this room should be painted with such a color which boosts our energy, keeps us positives and helps us in maintaining a work-life balance. 

Why Magenta?
The color magenta is a color of cheerfulness, happiness, contentment and appreciation for what you have acquired and achieved. It helps us to create harmony and balance in every aspect of life; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It promotes optimism and assists you in turning your ambitions and desires into reality.

Bed Room

Bed Room
The bed room is meant for relaxation after day long tiredness. It should be painted with such a color that relaxes our body and mind and keeps us healthy and hopeful so that everyday we our all set to begin a new day with exuberance.

Why Green?
Hues of green symbolize hope and freshness. Green has the ability to rejuvenate the mind and body.It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. Green is a natural pacemaker, an emotionally positive color, giving us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally.

Kitchen  & Dining Room

Kitchen & Dining Room
The kitchen is the heart of every house. The connection between heart and stomach is bonded here. The hearty chit chats over dining table with family members strengthens our relationships and bring in more love with some lip smacking dishes and scrumptious aroma adding to the pleasure.

Why Orange?
Orange is vibrant. It’s hot, healthy, fruity and engaging, stimulating two way conversations. A warm and inviting color, it is both physically and mentally stimulating, so it gets people thinking and talking! Orange is also stimulating to the appetite. Orange symbolizes energy, vitality, cheer, excitement, adventure, warmth, and good health. If you love having people around the kitchen table, orange will keep them talking and eating for a long time. Orange aids in the assimilation of new ideas and frees the spirit of its limitations, giving us the freedom to be ourselves. 

You are also provided with an option of choosing the type of emulsion you wish to go for. You can compare and calculate the total cost with the Paint calculator .
So when you are done with your set of colors, then just go for the order. Add the color cards to your cart and you are DONE. 

 Hail Colors !!!
