Me Mumbaikar, Me Marathoner

No, this doesn't describe me at all. I am quite lazy and do little exercise! Once in two months, I do Ramdev Maharaj's pranayam for about a week...But I did take part in the Mumbai Marathon last year. Only because Stanchart was my client! I trudged along for about 4.5 kilometres along with Sudheer(my friend from TBWA). Though, I did beat Meraj and Pooja:-)

While on the Marathon brief, had penned some lines. I thought I had misplaced them, till the 'copy' surfaced this week-end amidst piles of old magazines!

Since, the marathon is again round the corner, thought must share my copy with fellow bloggers. Thanks to Hiloni for beautifully art-directing the stuff and to Rithika for typesetting!

Here, it is...Lemme know if you guys like it!


Oh, I guess you can't read the copy...so here it is...

Kehte hain Bambai hamesha bhaagta rehta hai
Kabhi sapnon ke peeche, kabhi apnon ke liye
Kabhi umeed liye, kabhi zimmedaari se
kabhi naam ke peeche, hamesha kaam ke peeche

Is shehar ke har shaks ko hai bhaagne ki aadat
To aaeye har saal ki tarah, is saal bhi
Is betahasha bhaag ko daur mein badalein

21 janwari ko dauriye apne shehar ke liye
Kisi aur ke liye, ek khaas vajah ke liye


Mumbai Marathon. Ek Khaas Shehar. Ek Khas Vajah!

Hum bhi ek sapna lekar aaye hain
Es shehar ko apna banayge,
Es kadakti dhoop mein...
Hum ne bhi apna pasina bahaya hai
Kuch ham bhi kar ke jaayenge.

Har pal hai ek ehsaas
Hum bhi bhaagenge aapke saath,
Aaiye sapno ko sach banayein
Khud bhi bhaagein aur doosroin ko bhagaaein.

Mumbai marathon. ek Sapna. ek Ehsaas.

For the record Manish...it's really cool! Next time if i'm stuck with a line in hindi, i know where to go! Must mention.. Hiloni's mac has given it a life of its own.
