Chalisva Saal

Wrote this for my friend Gaurav Suri, his lovely wife Monika, son Anubhav and daughter Arunima on Gaurav’s 40th birthday.

Mubarak ho tujhko ye chalisva saal
Ye chehre ki jhurriyaan, ye girte huai baal

Haseenon ke sapnon mein kat ti thi raaten
Ab career aur investment ki karte tum baaten

Daru ki botal se tha rishta purana
Pite aaj bhi ho, par ab hai wine ka jamaana

Party mein naachte the saari saari raat
Ab excuse maar dete ho, yaar hai bachchon ka saath

Par kuch bhi kaho, ye chalis ki hai aalag baat
Ye sandhya ki vela hai, aadha din aadhi raat

To phir se kehta hoon

Mubaarak ho tujhko ye chalisva saal
Ek naye yug ki Arunima
Tera badhta hua Anubhav
Aur woh jo harpal tere jeevan ki taal
