शमा ...

शमा ...



हर पहर जिसकी लौ से..,तस्वीर बना करती है...,
मेरे पहलु में भी..,ऐसी ही एक शमा जला करती है..!

सहमी सी  धड़कनो में है जो बात...,
वो इन खामोश आखो से बयां होती है...!

शोर सा है हर सू..,आखें है बयाबान..,
हर ओर तेरी ही आवाज सुनाई देती है...!

ख़ामोश क्यों हो..,हमसे कोई बात करो या ख़ुदा..,
दिन भर अब जिंदगी..,तेरे सजदे में हुआ करती है...!

शमा जलती है..,तो ज़माने को पता चलता है..,
दिल के जलने की ख़बर..,आख़िर किसको हुआ करती है...!!!

वादा...




मोहब्बत में न जाने...,कैसी ये अनहोनी हो गई...,
पता ही नहीं चला...,कब उनसे से मोहब्बत हो गई...,

करीब आकर उन्होंने मेरे...,मुझे सीने से क्या लगाया...,
मौसम हसीं होते ही...,बिन मौसम की बरसात हो गई...,

लबों को छू के...,प्यार का वो एहसास जगाया...,
बांहो में जब लिया उन्होंने...,तो मेरी गहरी हो गई...,


​​
मन बहका देख उन आँखों को ...,दिल की धड़कन तेज हो गई..,
देखा जो उनको नजर भर तो...,ये दिल में इबादत हो गई...,

हाथ थाम कर...,आज तुमसे ये वादा करते हैं जान...,
की ये साँसे ये जिंदगी...,सिर्फ तेरे नाम हो गई...!!!

Questionnaire with author  "Faraaz Kazi" 

1. How did you first get involved in with writing, are you an imaginative person?


Yes, you can’t be a writer without being imaginative. I grew up an ardent reader. It didn’t take me a long time to graduate from a Tinkle Digest to an Enid Blyton adventure. By seven, I picked up the pen in hand to write fan fiction on my favorite tales and eventually started creating my own stories.

2.  What do you find most challenging about your writing?

As writing isn’t something that I do full-time, finding the time to pen down what’s on your mind or continuing where you left off is quite a challenge. I try and manage it over weekends somehow.

3.   What do you do when you are not writing?

Make some money, of course. In India, writing isn’t financially as rewarding as other conventional careers. One such conventional hat, I happen to wear during the day time disguised as a corporate slave whenever I’m not wearing the writer’s cape.

4.   Where do you see yourself in the next 6 months, and 5 years down the road?

I live in the present and only the present. The future is uncertain and is determined by our present, the course of actions that we take now shape our tomorrow. But the positive being that I am I would say, wherever I am, I see myself happy J

5.  How do you keep coming up with material/content for your story?

Research and observation are the two most important instruments. I use them as applicable to come up with trains of thought from where I can lead the proceedings through skill.

6. Any specific tips you have for new writers who want to make it big in the world of published books?

Write for yourself, neither for money nor for fame and most of all, never for the market. Just write, leave the rest of the thinking for later. Remember publishing is a bonus and shouldn’t be the outcome.
Till date, I have eleven works written but I have published only three so far. It’s a learning curve, you will know what to do when once your writing instinct takes over. For now, just write!

7.     What’s the best thing a writer can give to his readers?

The ability to see the world through his eyes. It’s a very simple yet profound thing to do and very few writers are capable of achieving it as writing is a communication process and all kinds of communication have challenges of interpretation and analysis attached to them.

8. A lot of people are interested in writing for the money earning potential. What are some tips for people interesting in making money from writing? What are some realistic expectations in regards to what can be made?

I could write a whole book on this but to cut a long story short, I quote myself from the past, “Don’t expect to make money out of your writing in a market like India unless you happen to be drawing five points on someone while spending a night in a call centre and making three mistakes of your life in two different states while hoping for a revolution by the year 2020 along with half a girlfriend who happens to be one Indian girl.”

9.   What motivates you most in life?

In a general sense, it would be real life inspiration from people around me. When it comes to writing, it would be the love of my readers that keeps me going.

10.  The majority of the readers tend to take sides due to religion and such other considerations.

For me, writing or for that matter any other cultural art form is unbiased and without any prejudice to anyone’s caste or for that matter, their political views. A true Faraaz Kazi reader will always stick to the overall appeal of a work without being prejudiced to any such elements that cause friction in the society.


11.  What are your views on increasing plagiarism?

It’s unavoidable. Thanks to the technology available on demand. To curb it, one must have stricter laws and a level of automated tracking that can detect patterns as soon as a work is submitted. This can be either at the agent’s end or the publisher’s end and if anything remotely resembling something is flagged off then the matter should be investigated and the person submitting it should be questioned. We need a broader governing council for this and that would take a long time because the Indian publishing industry is yet to be taken seriously by any ruling government.

इज़हार...

इज़हार...





ये शोर क्यों हैं...,दिल में कुछ अलग सा...
डोर क्यों है...,उलझी रिश्तो की तेरे मेरे...!
 देख तो सही तेरे हाथो में जरा गौर से...
छोटी सी ही सही लकीर हैं तेरे प्यार की...!

कमजोर सी क्यों है...,फिर मेरी उम्मीद की डोर...
बंद की हैं मैने ये पलकें जब भी...!
आया है ख्वाबो में...,तेरा बस तेरा ही खयाल...
सिर्फ तेरा ही सरूर क्यों..,कुछ इस मुझ पर छाया है...!
 
नज़रें झुकी ही रही मेरी...,जब भी नजरें मिलायी हैं तुझसे...,
 मेरे इश्क़ की तन्हाई और तेरे इश्क़ की गहरायी...!
अरसो से कैद थे दिल में...,जो जज़्बात तेरे लबो में...,
इज़हार-ए-इश्क़ से तेरे...,फिर ये दिल इस कदर बेताब क्यों है...!!!

BOOK REVIEW - “THE MYSTIC OF TWIN FLAME RELATIONSHIP: REINCARNATION OF SOULS BOOK BY MANJIT SARGAM CHAWLA”

BOOK REVIEW - “THE MYSTIC OF TWIN FLAME RELATIONSHIP: REINCARNATION OF SOULS BOOK BY MANJIT SARGAM CHAWLA”




​ I am the one who enjoys reading romance more than any genre for that matter when it comes to reading.

We encounter many soul mates whether Karmic, Companion mates in our reincarnated life from the time even before we take birth. These are our soul mates. They will help us to reunite with our twin flame-the mirror reflection of our soul-and intensify an unconditional divine love more powerful and profound than we can’t imagine. Soul Mates & Twin Flames reveal the ultimate secret to discover our soul mate and our twin flame. But the mirrored soul of our soul if met in this life span put the highest impact on our lives and mold us for good, make our soul spiritual awakened and we learn the true meaning of unconditional divine love. Twin Flames and numerous advanced souls are presently reuniting across the planet to complete their soul’s purpose of Oneness at this reincarnation on the Earthy plane.

The story revolves defines the story of reincarnation. According to the theory, after a person’s death, a part of the person searches for a new being and enters the body of the new organism. Twin souls are the mirror souls of the human beings. The next chapter states the major differences between conditional and unconditional love hence defining unconditional love as a divine form of love. Then in next chapter highlights the different types of connections when has with his soul. There are two types of souls- Karmic Mates, Companion Mates, and Twin Souls. In one of the chapter showcases the 16 signs of identifying the twin flame relationship. Then there is another chapter is a brief highlight of the seven stages of twin flame relationship- recognition and temporary spiritual awakening, meeting, testing, crisis, runner chaser stage, surrender, spiritual awakening and illumination, and oneness. The following chapter briefly describes the concept of telepathy that states that all human beings originate from the same source. The next chapter is an introduction to the concept of synchronicity. In one of the chapter explains the strong connection of emotions between the twin flames. Last, but not the least, the last chapter justifies the significance of twin flames in a human being’s life.  Indeed the end of the story was quite interesting with twists and turns as they unfold. For that, you need to read this book.

Now my Positive viewpoints:

The positives of the story are the narrative is conversational and engaging and lots of unexpected plots, the story was supported by quotes from other famous authors and writers as well as the author’s quotes. The concept of the book was very unique and it is indeed one of the most difficult concepts. The author has very perfectly elaborated the concept of twin flame throughout the book. The title of the book was apt to the theme of the book. The cover was flawlessly appealing. The blurb was too lengthy and could have been better if it would have been precise. The presentation style was outstanding.
Some suggestive points:
Although the narration of the story is good but in my opinion, the unambiguous descriptions went over the top. However, I was not so convinced by many actions in the book. At times, it felt that they were maneuvered to satisfy what author want to state.

Final words:

Overall if asked I would say this is a good job done by the author (Manjit Sargam Chawla), the book has got great imagination context. It was a great read with a unique concept. I would like to recommend this book to all the readers who want to enter into the quest of self-discovery and humanity.
