जिन्दगी जैसी तमन्ना थी नहीं कुछ कम है
हर घडी होता है एहसास कहीं कुछ कम है

घर की तामीर तसवुर ही में हो सकती है
अपने नक्से के मुताबिक ये ज़मीं कुछ कम है

बेचारे लोगों से मुलाक़ात कभी फिर होगी
दिल में उम्मीद तो काफी है यकीन कुछ कम है […]

Sangharsho Me Bita Jeevan

By Sanjeev Singhai. जीवन का इतिहास यही है जीवन की अनबूझ राहों में, चलते-चलते यह बनजारा, गाता जाये गीत विरह के, जीवन का इतिहास यही है. यौवन की ऑंखों से देखे, वे सारे स्‍वप्निल सपने थे, जिन-जिन से नाता जोडा था, वे भी तो सारे अपने थे. सबके सब हरजाई निकले, जीवन का परिहास यही […]

Air India makes web ticket booking tougher

By Sanjeev Singhai.

You liked the Indian Airlines or Air India for low fares and convenient sector timing. And that always left you, we with no other choice but than to travel with national air carrier Indian Airlines, even though you never had a great liking for their crew and specially for aging air hostages and their attitude & grim faces.

Not only that, you also must know the exact date of birth of each person for whom you want to book a ticket. […]
