Shahrukh's Poem On Yash Chopra's 81st Birthday

Shahrukh Khan recited this poem at Yash Chopra sahab's 81st birthday celebrations in a Mumbai where a special fashion show was organised to remember his romanticism and love for beauty.

Carnations and lilies are hueless
When set by the face of my fair
A fine woven gold is worthless
When weighted against the wealth of her hair
Through arches of corals passes her laughter
That banishes care
And flowers spring afresh
Amongst the grasses
Wherever her feet may fare.

The Illusion Of Freedom

When the fear
Takes over,
The lights blinker,
Darkness raises its head
Even in naked brightness,
The demons whisper
Frivolous giggles
Trigger insecurities,
Cloistered uncertainties
Knock the doors,
Mind webs a picture,
A discolored picture
Robbed of grace.

Freedom is an illusion,
An over-romanticised dream
That never really transpires,
Chain your emotions
And at least aspire
To battle it out,
More importantly,
With the enemy within,
Make sure there are no conditions
For 'Victory' is an illusion too,
At least try and then keep trying.

Response To 'Kahin Kuch Kam Hai'

Zindagi jaisi tavaqqo thi, nahin kuch kam hai
Har ghadi hota hai ahsaas, kahin kuch kam hai

'Kahin Kuch Kam Hai' is a ghazal written by my father Professor Shahryar, Jnanpith Award winning Urdu Poet and the lyricist of Muzaffar Ali's Umrao Jaan. It is part of my online music album 'Palkon Ko Bhigoyen Kaise' launched by the enterprising online music portal artistaloud.com

The ghazal has been composed and arranged by my friend Navneet Kedar. I have sung it. You can listen to the ghazal here http://www.hungama.com/music/song-kahin-kuch-kam-hai/1855099

Kindly take a look at some of the responses that this composition has received. Thanks.
