मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ...

मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
बेअदब सा मैं खुमार हूँ
अब मुश्किलों से क्या डरूं
मैं खुद कहर हज़ार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ उंच-नीच से परे
मजाल आँख में भरे
मैं लड़ रहा हूँ रात से
मशाल हाथ में लिए
न सूर्य मेरे साथ है
तो क्या नयी ये बात है
वो शाम होता ढल गया
वो रात से था डर गया
मैं जुगनुओं का यार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ भावनाएं मर चुकीं
संवेदनाएं खत्म हैं
अब दर्द से क्या डरूं
ज़िन्दगी ही ज़ख्म है
मैं बीच रह की मात हूँ
बेजान-स्याह रात हूँ
मैं काली का श्रृंगार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ हूँ राम का सा तेज मैं
लंकापति सा ज्ञान हूँ
किस की करूं आराधना
सब से जो मैं महान हूँ
ब्रह्माण्ड का मैं सार हूँ
मैं जल-प्रवाह निहार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ
मैं शून्य पे सवार हूँ – ज़ाकिर ख़ान (२९)

Are you virtualized?

I am sure most of you have overheard the word virtualization in some or other discussion. There are two types of virtualization application virtualization and session virtualization.

I was thinking are we doing the same thing in our real life. we are so much isolated from the things that we are living in the bubble.



Watching rain is always so much mesmerizing. It takes you far down the memory lane.  It was raining whole day today here in west hartford. I had to cancel my hiking plan and decided to stay at home. I had my breakfast. I prepared a nice hot tea and sat near the window gazing at the droplets on the clear window glass. My eye were constantly changing the focus from glass to street. There were some enthusiastic athletes running in the rain just to make sure they don't miss there workout due to rain. There were some young girl walking there dogs on the street. One lady with umbrella waiting for the bus on the bus stop. This was paradoxical to the any other rainy day. People were out doing their chores.

One of the prime thing about rain which I was missing while seating in the window was the petrichor. It always takes me down to the memory lane of my childhood. It was scent of earth after the first droplets of rain. We use to sing in the rain local rain songs. While we were dancing and s…

New beginning...2016

Its almost middle of feb but still I am referring to it as a new beginning.

Its almost a year I have started listening to different podcast on my commute to work. My favorite podcast is "Knowledge for Men. But recently I stumbled upon Tim Ferris podcast

Tim has opened many avenues of interesting knowledge to me. Thanks to Tim for introducing me to Seneca and Seth Godin.

Today I have started blogging because of both of them. 

I have to work over the weekend since one of my application is going live on Sunday. As murphy's law something is going to fail. Let's see how it goes.

It’s an always a pleasure and fun thing to meet your childhood friends abroad. I have meet Suhas and his brother here. I have also meet Aditi and her family. We all meet at time square, like time square is our new Katta. In my native language “Marathi” we refer a place as katta where we all friends use to meet. I could have meet Anup too when he came to east coast in New York but unfortunately I was on my way towards Niagara. So when Rohan told me that he is going to come to New York I was 100% sure that I need to meet him. Last time we meet was four years ago. And if I miss this chance to meet him then god knows when we can meet again. He was coming to celebrate his sister’s commencement ceremony. His mother was also visiting to attend commencement ceremony. And we wanted to visit her too. And off course his maha-naughty kid “Arjun”. So overall this was a best opportunity to catch up with old buddy. But destiny always has different plans…
Just before one week Trupti started have sev…

Evening in West Hartford:

It was a great day. Our team won two consecutive matches in the intra-company Cricket Tournament. I was happy and tired due to this physical activity after almost gap of 1 month. It was already noon when we finished playing. I came home and took a nap for some time. I woke up and I was not feeling refreshed. I was tired and empty inside. Suddenly I started feeling lonely. I decided to go for a walk to the Blue Back Square.

Small and neat town of West Hartford has a place called Blue Back Square. This is very lively place. You can find Movie Theatre, Live music, Library, fitness club, restaurants etc. It’s a never ending list. How can I forget to mention about its people. Friendliest neighborhood I ever lived in. Beautiful place beautiful people. When I reach Blue Back Square I realized there is new movie recently released “100 Foot Journey”. The plot has some Indian connection. It triggered my curiosity and I was in the theatre. It was a real treat for eyes a…
