Happy Valentines Day - Still Dateless

Happy Valentines Day 2008

Well, Valentines Day is here again and here is wishing everyone in my blogging community a very Happy Valentines Day.
valentines day india tips lonely alone dateless shayari sher shayriJust like last year and every year before that, I find myself dateless on Valentines Day. For anyone in a similar situation, here is a post I wrote last year called Tips for Lonely Folks on Valentines Day. However, the day is still young and I am hoping things विल get better by dusk.

कशिश होनी चाहिए किसी को याद करने की,
लम्हे तो अपने आप मिल जायेंगे,
वक्त होना चाहिए किसी को मिलने का,
बहाने तो अपने आप ही मिल जायेंगे.

If you are not lonely - just alone, then it's better to continue with your life as it is. Anyway, here in India, most people get freaked out to even talk to a girl/guy on Valentines Day as they maybe teased for a lifetime if things don't work out. There is no specific time for falling in love, it can happen anywhere, anytime with the most unlikely person - that's why they say that love is blind.

Until then, here is some Hindi/Urdu Sher Shayari for some lucky dudes whom I have a 'thing' for-

Mr.J - an ex colleague whom I always had lunch with in a previous office. Other lunch companions may come and go, but I still miss those amazing conversations we used to have-

सभी नगमे साज़ में गाये नही जाते,
सभी लोग महफिल में बुलाए नही जाते,
कुछ पास रह कर भी याद नही आते,
कुछ दूर रह कर भी भूलाये नही जाते…

Mr.P - The sexy athlete in the bus who always offers me his seat, tries to say something but then doesn't seem to have the courage. He keeps humming songs to himself, till others make him stop-

इकरार में शब्दों की एहमियत नही होती,
दिल के जज़्बात की आवाज़ नही होती,
आँखें बयान कर देती हैं दिल की दास्ताँ,
मोहब्बत लफ़्ज़ों की मोह्ताज़ नही होती!

Mr.H - The liar who once tried to pay for my bus ticket...he keeps turning up unexpectedly in the least likely of places.....colony, crossroads, bus... my dreams-

कितना भी चाहूँ न भूल पाओंगे
हम से जितना दूर जाओ नजदीक पाओगे
हमें मिटा सकते हो तो मिटा दो यादें मेरी, मगर..
क्या सपनो से जुदा कर पाओगे?

I recently noticed the Hindi typing feature on blogger and couldn't help trying it's quite good, except for the fact that the choti 'e' ki matra comes on the other side. If you enjoy reading hindi or urdu sher shayari, I'll post some more of it in my next posts.

How was your Valentines Day?


  1. Happy Valentine's Day to you as well!


  2. OH, don't worry!! Most do not celebrate V day which is highly commercialized in US to sell dinners, flowers and candies, and Jewelery too! Arvind didn't even remember the V day this morning!!Hahaha!!:)

  3. well seems like u've had some pretty romantic guys in ur life :):)

    Happy V-day hun!


  4. For those who cannot read Devnagri script or understand Hindi or Urdu, here is the translation of the poems -

    Kashish honi chahiye kisi ko yaad karne ki, lamhe toh apne aap mil jaayenge, vakt hona chahiye kisi ko milne ka, bahane toh apne aap hi mil jaayenge.
    (There should be attraction for you to remember someone, the moments will meet by themselves, you should have time to meet someone, the excuses will come by themselves)

    Sabhi nagme saaz main gaaye nahin jate, sabhi log mehfil main bulaye nahin jaate, kuch pas rehkar bhi yaad nahin aate, kuch door rehkar bhi bhulaye nahin jate.
    (Not all musical notes are sung in harmony, not all people are invited to a party, sometimes people who are near by are never remembered, while those who live far away cannot be forgotten)

    Ikrar main shabdon ki ehmiyat nahin hoti, dil mein jazbat ki awaaz nahin hoti, aakhen bayaan kar deti hain dil ki dastaan, mohabbat lafzon ki mohtaz nahin hoti.
    (Someone please translate this, my urdu is not this great)

    Kitna bhi chahoon na bhool paoge, hum se jitna door jao utna nazdeek paoge, humein mita sakte hain ho toh mita de yaad meri, magar kya sapno se juda kar paoge?
    (No matter how much you try, you will not be able to forget me, no matter how far you go u will always find me nearby, If you are trying to erase me, erase your memories of me, but will you be able to erase me from your dreams?

  5. Belated wishes for Valentine's Day...

    If you believe in Love, every day is valentine's day...

    it requires lot of courage to tell someone that you love him... or for him to tell you the same.

    that reminds me a quote, i read from manna's blog -

    It is a risk to love.... That’s part of what makes it so beautiful...If you frequently ask yourself, ‘What if it doesn't work out?’... consider changing your question... Ask yourself, ‘Ah, but what if it does?’”

    -- Harold Bloomfield

    so keep believing in Love.. and have courage to admit the same..
    and all your evenings will be valentine's eve...!!!

    Cheers !!!!!
