KaHan Se Laoge...

Click on the image above for a better view...

And for people who do not read Hindi very well.... here is a more readable version...

ek daadi ka haath sar par,
aur wo lori...

kahan se laoge?

pair chukar namaste kehne wale chote bhai...
baithne par aawaaz karne wali charpai...

kahan se laoge?

ek gali jahan saath manai jaye holi, aur diwali...
Eid ki mubarakbaad se goonje, aisee gali...

kahan se laoge?

Siksha ke naam par siksha dene wali paathshaala,
aur wo baaju ki dukaan par muft mein toffee dene wala lala...

kahan se laoge?

Ravivaar ki dopahar mein saath moongfali khana...
roothe hue logon ko greeting card dekar manana...

kahan se laoge?

Taange mein jute ghode ki naal ki aawaaz...
Vividh Bharti ki Akhil Bhartiya Seva par bajne wale saaz...

kahan se laoge?

Samay Chalega hum chalenge tum chaloge...
par wo saath chalne ka Jazba...

Kahan se Laoge?

  11. dosh na shabdon ka hai aur na hi shabdon ko awaaz dene wale ka.
    ye shayad ek hi insaan ke kai pehlu hain...kuch samajh aate hain aur kuch nahi.

  22. very wel written...its hilarious as wel as sad wen i come across the kind of youth that very clearly n conveniently take pride in stating"mujhe hindi nahi ata hai"

    its absurd and sumtimes pseudo down to core,n these are not just teen there are people as old as freakin 24 who think hindi is sumthin to be looked down upon whereas english as they consider it,happens to be an endorsement on the"cool"outlook..

    thanku more than nythin fer the "hindi promotion n propagation"trust me its really reqd,esp in places like delhi..

    angrezi aur angrezii ka guroor toh sar chad gaya..
    par ghalib ke kissson mein chuppe huee baton ka lutf...kahan se laoge!!(ummmm maybe this is hysterically funny,but wateva!jai hindi!!)

    really appreciate your concern there... i felt really good to read your comment...

    if there are people like you around.. then trust me there would be someone or the other who would remember that Hindi or for that matter any local language is as important as the cewl english...

    kahaan se laaoge?
