Today, on his birthday, we would like share some of his best lines 🙂

 

  • “Thoda sukoon bhi dhoondiye janab, ye zarooratein toh kabhi khatam nahi hogi. Thoda hai; thode ki zaroorat hai. Zindagi phir bhi yahan khoobsurat hai.”

 

  • “Manzilo se gumrah kar deta hain kucch log. Har kisi se raasta poochna accha nahi hota.”

 

  • “Kuch bhi qayam nahin hai, kuch bhi nahin. Aur jo qayam hai, bus ek mai hoon, main jo pal pal badalta rehta hoon.”

  • “Lagta hai aaj zindagi kuch khafa hai chalie chhodiye, kaunsa pehli dafa hai”

 

  • “Dil mei kuch jalta hai shayad dhuaan dhuaan sa lagta hai. Aankh mein kuch chubhta hai shayad sapna koi sulagta hai”

 

  • “Ik baar toh yun hoga Thoda sa sukoon hoga Na dil mein kasak hogi Na sar mein junoon hoga”

  • “Jeene ke liye socha hi nahi, dard sambhalne honge. Muskuraaye toh muskuraane ke karz utaarne honge.”

 

  • “Thoda sa hasake, Thoda sa rula ke. Pal ye bhi jaane wala hai.”
