Kaisay besharam dinn thay woh
Jab raaton ko bhi jaaga kartay thay,
Tum say baaton ke intezaar mein
Harr shaam guzara kartay thay

Na dinn mein hi neend aati thi,
Jab khayalon ko tum baandhaa kartay thay.

Tum nay toh kabhi ‘Faiz’ ko padha bhi nahin,
Phir bhi keh diya –
“Mujh se pehli si mohabbat meri mehboob na maang.”

I'm a story-teller at heart, and I use images and words to tell the stories I have to. I have a day job of a communications professional, and I moonlight as a photographer. I'm based in Ahmedabad, India. And I dream of travelling the world.
