Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Baraktuhu. Aap sab hi readers ka beinteha shukriya ke aap is blog par aae, na aap jaise special readers hote na likhne ka ye maza hota. Aaj aap sab se share karne ja rahe hain tez raftar Bombay ki kuch tasveeren aur tasveeren aise raaste aur galiyon ki jinhen din mein dekh kar dil khushi se baagh baagh ho jaae aur raat mein pursukooni ki ek aisi kaifiyat taari hoti hai ke bhayaanak mehsoos hota hai.

Kehne ko to ye shehr tez tareen hai magar is mein chupe kai aise andhere raaste aur galiyaan bhi hain jinko dekh kar horror movies ki yaad aa jaaege aur wohi hua hai jab jab is raaste se guzar hua hai.

Aarey road

Yun to street lights nazar aa rahi hain is mein magar kya aap dekh rahe hain ye raasta itni raushni ke bawajood sunsaan nazar aa raha hai. Ek jungle sa hai is raaste ke donon jaanib aur ek nihaayat haulnaak aur khaufnaak manzar hai. Din mein ye raasta jitna haseen lagta hai aur nigaah hat ti hi nahin hai is se, raat ko bilkul uska ulat hota hai, Himmat hi nahin hoti hai ke nigaah bhar ke bhi dekhen us ki taraf.

Aisa ajab sa viraana aur sannaata hai ke aisa lagta hai koi peecha kar raha hai, koi andhere mein se dekh raha hai. Ek to aise aise bhooton ke qisse sune hue hain ke bus… Intezar kar rahe the kab ye raasta khatm ho aur bike se ja rahe the to aur aisa lag raha tha ke raasta khatm hone ka naam hi nahin le raha tha.

Is photo mein ek bike thi humaare aage wo bhi itniiiii dooooor.

Bhoot balaaen aur leopards sab kuch yahan hain. Koi to baat hogi jo is raaste se koi aata jaata nahin hai warna Bombay mein traffic ke maare har koi khaali raasta lena pasand karta aur is raaste par door door tak ek gaadi nazar nahin aa rahi thi. Badi muskil se is raaste par kul milaa kar ek do gadiyen aur do ya teen bikes dekhi hongi wo bhi bohot der ke baar kahin ikka dukka.

Ek lamhe mein sare words yaad aagae Urdu aur English ke daraauna, dehshatnaak, haulnaak, khaufnaak, frightful, scary, eerie, creepy, spooky, horrifying, hair-raising, unpleasant, sinister…

Aarey Road Aarey colony ki photos hain ye. Bombay ke rehne waale khoob waaqif honge is se. Ird gird jungle hone ki wajah se yahan leopards bhi aa jaate hain kabhi kabhi aur kai logon par hamle aur kuch ki maut ka aksar khabron mein sunte hain. Hum donon (me and my husband) jaan hatheli par rakh kar ja rahe the wo bhi bike par. Ek lamhe ke liye ye khayal aaya ke kya hota agar waqai leopard aa jaata. Magar seedha seedha chalte chale aae duaaen padhte padhaate. Jaise hi raasta khatm hua kuch jaan mein jaan aai.

Ehsaas hota hai ke insaan kitna kamzor hai jab kuch nazar nahin aata use Allah yaad aata hai. Hona to ye chaahiye ke har lamha insaan Allah ko yaad kare aur har lamha har pal uska shukr adaa kare.

Baaharhaal maza to bohot aaya tha is raaste par.

Kya aap ka bhi jaana hua hai kisi aisi jagah. I’m sure you might be having a tale or two to share. Do share them with us.

Aapke qisse sunne ki muntzir.

Allah Hafiz

Stay Tuned, Stay Safe.

    1. I named it so deliberately because I feel it is fast-paced, the traffic that goes on and on all day all night and last but not the least the people in general are so busy with themselves that they don’t have the time to even stop and stare at you. Everyone is always on the move.
      Hence the name Tez raftar.
      Thanks for always sparing time to reading my posts.

      It means a lot.
      Good day!

    1. I really wish I knew how to. Ise hi likhne mein itna time jaata hai.
      But ethically this is wrong to use transliteration, it kills the original language.

      Lekin ye adna is koshish hai un logon tak pohonchne ki jinhen urdu nahin aati, un mein bhi urdu ka zauq paida ho aur humaara bhi kaam ho jaae.

      1. Thanks for your kind suggestion but it’s really hard to take time for all that not. Waise seekhne koi umar nahin hoti lekin insaan strong will waala hona chaahiye. Not like how we tend to do in most things kal karenge.

      1. I’ve been busy, confused, exhausted and a lot more 😅 I’m happy to be back as well especially because I get to read all the wonderful posts. How have you been? And thanks for asking 🙂

      2. Alhamdulillah absolutely fine. Glad to hear that.
        Recently I have started a blog on instagram. Just posted a thing or two there. Don’t really know much abt instagram. In fact I haven’t really tried doing anything on that platform.

        I’m about to post a blog about it in a day or two.

      3. Alhumdulillah.
        Ohh, it’s great that you’ve started it on a new platform! I don’t really use Instagram otherwise I would have helped you out or something.
        I’m eager for it!

  1. Another wonderful post dear❤️ so well written and the pictures you took are amazing. Have never been to Mumbai just heard it never sleeps. I just correlated your pics with our own lives, it’s just how we are living, so fast paced that we are enjoying and living the moment so little, not even to the fullest and it flies and we are standing and witnessing something new. 😊
    Waqt rafta rafta nahi guzarta ab, shayad pehle guzra karta tha..

    1. Thanks for your kind appreciation and thoughtful insight. It means so much🥰♥️
      We truly are living life at such a pace that we hardly enjoy the moment we are in.
      Kya baat kahi hai ke “waqt ab rafta rafta nahin guzarta ab shaayad pehle guzra karta tha”.
      Time flies pehle suna karte an to maloom hota hai chand lamhon mein din maheene saal guzarne lage hain.
