I’m sick of listening to these loud, meaningless Bollywood songs. Whenever I tune in to any radio, it’s just EDM or remixes that are playing on these channels. I mean what’s happening? Where are the original, meaningful lyrics?

Piyush Mishra


He is a great actor, orator, singer, and an amazing poet. He is a man that can easily win you forever with his words. If you’ve ever attended his live poetry sessions, then you’ll know what I’m talking about. So, to give you a little sneak peek of this epic writer, I combined some of his popular and well-loved couplets together. Take a look:

Dard ki Baarish mein hum akele hi the,

Jab barsi khusiyaan, na jaane bheed kahan se aagayi…


Wo kaam bhala kya kaam hua

Jisme sala dil ro jaaye,

Wo ishq bhala kya ishq hua

Jo aasani se ho jaaye!


Kaise karein ham khud ko tere pyaar ke kaabil,

Jab ham aadatein badalte hain…

Tum sharat badal dete ho…

Prasoon Joshi

Who doesn’t know about this adman? He has a passion for words, and his words have the power to move the waves of the ocean. Whether it’s his iconic campaigns for Coca Cola, Nestle, or Happydent or his breathtaking writing for Taare Zameen Par, Rang De Basanti, or Bhaag Milkha Bhaag – he’s pretty popular among the youth of our country. But, how many of you know about his poetry skills? Every now and then, Prasoon makes sure that through his words he helps the society to change and transform. He has done many campaigns on social causes with UNICEF and Government of India. Here is one such poem:

Is baar nahin
Is baar jab woh choti si bachchi mere paas apni kharonch le kar aayegi
Main usey phoo phoo kar nahin behlaoonga
Panapney doonga uski tees ko
Is baar nahin

Is baar jab main chehron par dard likha dekhoonga
Nahin gaoonga geet peeda bhula dene wale
Dard ko risney doonga,utarney doonga andar gehrey
Is baar nahin

Is baar main na marham lagaoonga
Na hi uthaoonga rui ke phahey
Aur na hi kahoonga ki tum aankein band karlo,gardan udhar kar lo main dawa lagata hoon
Dekhney doonga sabko hum sabko khuley nangey ghaav
Is baar nahin

Is baar jab uljhaney dekhoonga,chatpatahat dekhoonga
Nahin daudoonga uljhee door lapetney
Uljhaney doonga jab tak ulajh sake
Is baar nahin

Is baar karm ka hawala de kar nahin uthaoonga auzaar
Nahin karoonga phir se ek nayee shuruaat
Nahin banoonga misaal ek karmyogi ki
Nahin aaney doonga zindagi ko aasani se patri par
Utarney doonga usey keechad main,tedhey medhey raston pe
Nahin sookhney doonga deewaron par laga khoon
Halka nahin padney doonga uska rang
Is baar nahin banney doonga usey itna laachaar
Ki paan ki peek aur khoon ka fark hi khatm ho jaye
Is baar nahin

Is baar ghawon ko dekhna hai
Gaur se
Thoda  lambe  wakt  tak
Kuch  faisley
Aur uskey baad hausley
Kahin toh shuruat karni hi hogi
Is baar yahi tay kiya hai

Javed Akhtar


He needs no introduction. He is a well-known Bollywood writer and lyricist. Some of his most successful work was with Salim Khan in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. He has won many awards including 5 National Awards, 14 Filmfare Awards, National Integration Award, Padma Shri, and Padma Bhushan for his tremendous contribution in Hindi Cinema. Out of his all great writings, my favourite is:

Ik baat honthon tak hai jo aayi nahin

Bas ankhon se hai jhaankti

Tumse kabhi, mujhse kabhi

Kuch lafz hain woh maangti

Jinko pahen ke honthon tak aa jaaye woh

Awaaz ki baahon mein baahein daalke ithlaaye woh

Lekin jo yeh ik baat hai

Ehsaas hi ehsaas hai

Khushboo si hai jaise hawa mein tairti

Khushboo jo be awaaz hai

Jiska pata tumko bhi hai

Jiski khabar mujhko bhi hai

Duniya se bhi chhupta nahin

Yeh jaane kaisa Raaz hai

Vishal Bhardwaj

He is a great filmmaker, but now he has come out with a book of his poetry called ‘Nude’. We all know that Vishal has some great visual and writing skills, and with this book, he expressed it all. The book contains some great ghazals and nazms, each comes with a meaningful story behind it. These poems are a great read for anyone, and especially for us – the 90’s kids. Please have a look:

Bachpan mein school ki jab

Bin kaaran chhutti ho to

Maare khushi ke bacchon mein

Kitna hulla hota hai


Bilkul waisa shor-o-gul

Mere andar hota hai

Jab milte ho achanak tum

Aate jaate raaston par
