Koi Deewana Kehta Hai

Kumar Vishwas is a poet of a new generation (in Marathi we call it Navkavi).  To quote few people-

Late Dharamvir Bharati, remarked him as the most promising lyricist of young-hindi generation, Honourable Neeraj used to call his compering as – “nisha-niyamak”, and according to the famous comedy-icon poet, Surinder Sharma, he is the one and only ISO2006 poet of this generation.

Dr.Vishvas, immensely popular with the coming generation has been using internet to spread the magic of his words—his beautiful poetry—to reach those Indians who are away from their soil, in far flung places like U.S.A, Europe, Gulf and Pakistan.

I heard his beautiful poem titled ‘Koi Deewana Kehta Hai’ and instantly fell in love with it. You can watch the video on YouTube or Google video.

Here are the lyrics-

कोई दीवाना कहता है, कोई पागल समझता है !
मगर धरती की बेचैनी को बस बादल समझता है !!
मैं तुझसे दूर कैसा हूँ , तू मुझसे दूर कैसी है !
ये तेरा दिल समझता है या मेरा दिल समझता है !!

मोहब्बत एक एहसासों की पावन सी कहानी है !
कभी कबीरा दीवाना था कभी मीरा दीवानी है !!
यहाँ सब लोग कहते हैं, मेरी आंखों में आँसू हैं !
जो तू समझे तो मोती है, जो ना समझे तो पानी है !!

समंदर पीर का है अन्दर, लेकिन रो नही सकता !
यह आँसू प्यार का मोती है, इसको खो नही सकता !!
मेरी चाहत को दुल्हन बना लेना, मगर सुन ले !
जो मेरा हो नही पाया, वो तेरा हो नही सकता !!

भ्रमर कोई कुमुदनी पर मचल बैठा तो हँगामा
हमारे दिल में कोई ख्वाब पला बैठा तो हँगामा,
अभी तक डूब कर सुनते थे हम किस्सा मुहब्बत का
मैं किस्से को हक़ीक़त में बदल बैठा तो हँगामा !!!

Why does music have so much profound effect on our mood? How do we perceive and interpret musical notes? Is it intuitive or involves continuous learning process or both? Marvin Minsky has tried to answer these questions on his paper titled Music, Mind and Meaning. He is an American cognitive scientist in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), co-founder of MIT’s AI laboratory, and author of several texts on AI and philosophy (interestingly I did BE final year project on Stock Market using AI techniques).
