Desh Ki Beti by Megha Barthwal

I take pride in welcoming you again to Few Miles. Megha, my colleague at work, an enthusiastic poet, is back with a poem. This time in Hindi Language… DESK KI BETI!

Here you go… the stage is all yours!

Mai desh ki beti kehti hu,
Mai desh ke dil mein rehti hu;
Jahan dharti ko maa kehte hai,
Un saanso me m behti hu.

Yaha puja meri hoti hai,
Phir rooh kyu meri roti hai;
Sab kathan paraye lagte hai,
Sab log paraye lagte hai.

Ye jag kyu mujhse rutha hai?
Ye pyar bhala kyu jhuta hai?
Kyu bhoz mje sb kehte hai?
Meri aankho mein bhi sapne rehte hai.

Mai kokh mein hi mar jati hu,
Kyu mai kisi ko bhi na bhaati hu?
Yadi janma bhi di jati hu,
Mar mar kar hi ji paati hu.

Tooti chattano si mein dehti hu.
Har baar mai hi kyu sehti hu?
Mai desh ki beti kehti hu,
Mai desh ke dil m rehti hu.

Mai khoon ke aansu piti hu,
Bhs dar dar kar mai jiti hu.
Aawaz nhi m reeti hu,
Har naari ki aap-beeti hu.

Mujhe jhukao nhi, mje dabao nhi,
Ab chahe jitna chahoge na rok mje tum paoge.

Na roko mujhe na toko mujhe,
Mai vishva ka ujiyara hu.

Maa kasie tune tyag dia? Aakhir m ansh tumhara hu.
Mai aandhi hu mai junoon hu, pita tumhara hi to mai khoon hu.

Jo ab na zhukna chahte hai un aanko ki mai seepi hu.
Mai dekh ki beti kehti hu.
Mai desh ke dil mein rehti hu.

MESSAGE TO YOU, SARAV

Thanks a lot for giving me an opportunity to exhibit my writing. Now I am feeling more confident that I can continue to write more. Thanks for showing confidence on me.

A day without you :’-|

There’s always poet inside you. All you need is to express yourself in a language you feel comfortable. Of course, you need a small bit of encouragement and self-confidence to give wings to the poet in you. Luckily, I have many such sweethearts in life. And, that’s pretty much the reason for expressing myself.

Megha Barthwal, my colleague at work, an enthusiastic soul, is one such talented heart. On this special day, I’m privileged to introduce Megha to Blog-o-sphere, and let your pen create magic.

Here you go… the stage is all yours!

Passing along the morning mist,
Sound of flowers’ gist.
Indeed I see a world waking their eyes.
Though, I’m holding a long so list.

What all to do, what all can I do?
I want to leave all regrets and remorse,
Inside me hidden some strong force.
My burning desire, my eyes too liar.
My body so feeble, my voice not so audible…
Still pushing me so forward in a condition so awkward,
But all together strengthening me so deep;
All my inner voice emerging a bleep.

That I am so brave, and I am strong fist.
I have to forget when you very first kissed;
I have to move on and show me myself.
Coz I do exist! Coz I do exist!

Leaving behind the warmth of your touch,
Also want to forget so way do you judged.
My lips too will carry the smile I tucked;
I have to prove, I am no more a smudge.

I want to feel that I am also ‘I’,
I want to see that it’s not a lie.
I want to know I’m not so frail to cry,
I want to understand, you are no more of my.

Just a day without you, I want to live;
Now no more time I want to forgive.
Just one more chance myself I want to so give;
Just one more determination am going to outlive.

If one day I can so, daily I do.
I am thankful to you, and now I bid you adieu.

MESSAGE TO YOU, SARAV

Thanks a lot for giving me an opportunity to exhibit my writing. It’s the first time I am writing for any blog and feeling more confident that I can continue to write more. Thanks for showing confidence on me.

#BergerXP it is!

IndiBlogger.in is so close to my heart. Be it the competitions they host, the meets they organize or they innovative thoughts of the organizers, I love being a part of it. When I got a special invite for #BergerXP meet, I registered instantly expecting the meet would be fun.

On Saturday, my wife Vidhya and I, reached the venue The Lalit Ashok Bangalore at around 12 PM. Leo and Vidya were there in the venue. I was happy to meet them almost six months. Soon many bloggers joined us – a few known faces and many unknown faces. Since I was wearing Mala for Sabarimala, I restricted myself from interacting with people. However, as more people walked in, I started interacting with them.

The meet started with a heavy lunch – I had only vegetarian – followed by the registration process. Anoop greeted me with a huge smile. We hugged. Renie was searching for ‘Someone is Special’ a.k.a Sarav, and on seeing me in the new avatar, he was surprised. I felt like back to home. Of course, for a blogger, IndiBlogger.in is home.

My wife was bit nervous as she was unable to register due to technical problems. Once Aaruhsi and Anoop, helped us complete the registration process, she was happy.

Anoop, the man behind the mike, invited Karthik to help us exercise. It was fun, I captured a video of the same. The balloon game. Karthik, you are just awesome man with your moves.

When Chandra took over, he spoke about BergerXP, its tools and innovations. Unlike other presentations where presenters concentrate only on AIDA model, this was a breather. He spoke about innovation, next gen tools and Express Painting. Faster. Cleaner. Better. It was fascinating that kept me engrossed till the very end. Some memorable one-liners, I tweeted during the meet and created a story using moments…

If I miss to talk about the tools then it would be a crime. Let me first tell you the names and its features, followed by a TVC made by #BergerXP.

SANDING MACHINE: It is Faster and Cleaner with Dust-Free Vacuum Function.

MULTIPURPOSE MIXER: Quick & Hassle-free Mixing that can help you mix putty and texture of your choice.

AUTO ROLLER: Have you ever seen an adjustable roller with automatic paint pumping, giving a superior sexy finish? Watch it below…

HIGH PRESSURE WASHER: The difference between a worst experience and the best experience is when someone start cleaning the walls. And that’s what Berger has done. A Hi-speed Pressure wash with regulators addition to the nozzle adjustment. It’s just amazing!

AIRLESS PAINT SPRAYER: A sprayer that supports water-based paints and primer giving a classic touch. Experience Berger XP now… Check out latest TVC…

If you are planning to give your favourite home a makeover, use #BergerXP Express Painting. I am saying this only after experiencing it. Actually we were asked to team up to perform a couple of acitivites. Given a choice to select five on my team as a lead, I spoke with Debolina and Nalini and they agreed to be a part of my team, and Leo & Vidhya was there by default. Initially we were given a challenge to smoothen a rough wall with putty. We did well. It is more of to test the patience level and to convey the hard work the painters put. Remember, how many times we would have said what work these painters do. They are not even doing their work properly. Trust me, it is hard and people do it with real passion to get your wall the look you are looking for.

The second set of activities is to paint on a theme and then present it. Guess what, we found our new lead from whom we got our team name Aakriti. Her enthusiasm in sketching is unmatchable and I see a future IndiBlogger in her. I always love sketching and painting. Somehow I am not giving myself enough time to sketch or paint or do both. This meet, gave me an opportunity to paint, and along with my team it got fulfilled. If I recall it right, last time I sketched was in 2013 and it was for a IndiBlogger Character Contest. And this time, too, IB, helped me paint one more time. I wish to paint more, but then reading and writing, gives me a good work -life balance.

We then took the Mannqinn challenge and trust me, it was real fun. Once it was over, we took a groupie and then we retired for the day after collecting the most precious t-shirt (thanks to the sponsors, who let IB print without the sponsors name) and a gift hamper from BergerXP. Since I forgot to take my bag, I went inside again only to be video interviewed. Thank you IB Team for the opportunity.

It was fun-filled day. Thanks to BergerXP and IndiBlogger for organizing such a wonderful meet rather than mere boring talks. I really look forward to meet you again. In case if I win a chance to get a wall painted by BergerXP, I shall write a detailed review on the same.
