Meri Waaqif Hai

Sep 20 2007

It seems that my Writer’s Block is finally over. I am actually able to put my thoughts onto paper now. For last few days that is what I have tried to do and lo & behold a Nazm has been born each time. And quite amusingly my last 2 have come while I was washing my face in the bathroom. Quiet an odd place to think of a poem.

I went ahead and recited the Nazm for couple mates who can’t read Hindi. Also recorded a little improvised melody in the background. Padhne ka shukriya! Here is the Link to the MP3 of the recitation.
