लाल साड़ी

लाल साड़ी में आपको देख के,
दिल तो बईमान हो गया हैं.
हम ही अभी तक,
इस ईमान को थामे बैठे हैं.
ये जानते हुए की आप,
किसी और की हो रही हो,
जाने क्यों आपका आँचल पकड़े बैठे हैं.
जाने किस्मत में क्या लिखा है,
और आप कितना समझोगी,
मगर हर रात,
आपके लिए दिया बुझा के बैठे हैं.

अमावस की रात

रहनुमाओं की खोज में, हसरतें जवाँ हो गयी,
जवानी के जोश में हम तनहा रह गए.
कब तक उछालोगे ये आज़ादी का जश्न,
सबको खबर हो चुकी है, ये रात हमें खोखला कर गयी.
और बेइंतहा मोहब्बत करते थे सितारों से हम,
अमावस की रात को, कत्ले-आम मच गयी.
अब ना हम हैं, ना वो हैं, ना जवानी का वो गुरुर,
मुफलसी है, तन्हाई है, और थोड़ी साँसे बच गयी.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

तेरी चाल पे तो तख्ते-ताज पलट गए,
ये हम हैं जो फिर भी संभल गए.
तुझे पाने को बाह गयी खून की नदियां,
जाने कैसे इस सैलाब से हम निकल गए.

परमीत सिंह धुरंधर


तेरी जुल्फों में सोया करता था,
अब तन्हा-तन्हा फिरता हूँ.
बहुत मगरूर था जिस मोहब्बत पे,
अब उसी का मातम करता हूँ.

Modi jee missed his first masterstroke

The announcement of Bharat Ratan for Atal jee brought the true face of BJP that they are not different than congress. L.K. Advani keep telling that he wrote so many letters to Manmohan Singh for considering Atal jee name. However, no one in BJP consideredLate-P.-V.-Narasimha-Rao P.V. Narasimha Rao’s name for this award along with Atal jee. It was Narasimha Rao who awarded Atal jee “Padma Vibhushan” in 1992 even if he was PM from the Congress party. It is well known fact that he was trying for Pokharan but was unable due to USA and so he had a personal talk with Atal jee before leaving the office. He requested him not to give up.

It was an opportunity for BJP and Modi to defeat Congress in their game. It is well known fact that Soniya jee don’t like Narasimha Rao. It was a nice opportunity for BJP to win the heart of Telgu people by showing its bigger heart as late N.T.R had shown by supporting Narasimha Rao in election as he was the first PM candidate from south. The same thing was done by Bal Thakre in case of Pratibha Patil. However, What BJP did here is very much similar what Congress did by not considering a great leader like Atal jee for Bharat Ratan during their reign.

Mohan Bhagwat told that Modi is like Abhimanyu and this Abhimanyu missed this opportunity. (Photo was taken from web by google search.)

Shyama Prasad Mukherjee: Article 370 and Mission 44 in Kashmir

imagesShyama Prasad Mukherjee, the leader who created the meaningful opposition in an independent India and who was the face of the RSS supported BJP till now, was not considered for the Bharat Ratna” award by Modi government in Delhi. The government decided to give this to Mahamana Madan Mohan Malaviye jee, who was senior, and Atal Jee who was junior to Shyama Prasad. By this way the RSS and BJP tried to erase Shyama Prasad legacy in Indian Politics.

I am not here to tell that he was the youngest VC of the Calcutta University who invited Tagore for convocation. I am here to ask a question that why BJP and Modi did not choose his name for the Bharat Ratan.

एक राष्ट्र में दो प्रधान, नहीं चलेगा-नहीं चलेगा। एक देस में दो विधान, नहीं चलेगा-नहीं चलेगा। This was the slogan which was popular than any movie dialogue that is popular today. It was Shyama Prasad who did that without proper party and workers. It was Shyama Prasad who initiated the opposition against Jinna hidden agenda for Pakistan when no one else in the Congress had thought that Jinna would be successful. He resigned from Nehru’s cabinet to oppose the 1950 Delhi pact and made BJS with the help of the RSS and thus he brought the RSS in politics. However, today, BJP choose Atal jee and Mahamana to erase him and his political legacy. In my view, this was the biggest mistake this government did. It was an opportunity for the BJP to prove that it is different than the Congress and to prove that it is important to debate on the article 370. Awarding the Bharat Ratan to him would have proved his point on the article 370 was correct. His vision on united India or on Jinna was correct.

Then, why did not BJP choose him? The answer is the article 370. By dropping his name, BJP sent a hidden signal to political parties in Kashmir that they don’t care for the article 370. In other words, BJP is trying to prove that the article 370 is not related to Hindutva and nationalism. From here and now, I don’t think BJP will use Shyama Prasad name like Balraj Modhak. The Bharat Ratan for Shyama Prasad might have helped BJP to gain something in Bengal, but they choose to drop him just because their interest lies in Kashmir. Shyama Prasad was more potent and stronger leader of Hindu Mahasabha than Madan Mohan jee. BJP choose both (Atal jee and Mahamana jee) name to keep its fake Hindutva alive and to keep opposition silent. By choosing Mahamana’s name, BJP tried to satisfy the strong supporter of Hindutva. However, BJP is neither interested in Hindutva nor it is interested in Madan Mohan or Atal jee legacy. They just want to grab power at any cost and want to make history by doing something in Kashmir. Now the future will reveal where BJP will go in next four years with respect to Bharat Ratan as they don’t have so many leaders to give this award during their regime. Will they consider Shayam Prasad in next year or they will choose people from other filed or no nomination at all. There might be chance that will choose some other people from history like Madan Mohan jee. Is there any chance for L. K. Advani as he was a fire brigade for the RSS ideology at one time?

Mission-44 and its role in Bharat Ratan to Atal Bihari Vajpayee jee

Long back RSS aligned in favor of Atal Bihari and Lal Krishna Advani and supported them to suspend Balraj Madhok, the tallest leader of Jan Sangh at that time. Those who don’t know Balraj Madhok and consider Atal Bihari Vajpayee as a good speaker, my advices to them are to ask people who have seen Balraj Madhok. The Nehru’s era is incomplete without mentioning of three leaders: Rammanohar Lohiya, Shyama Prasad Mukherkjee and Balraj Modhak. Lohiya was critical at his policies towards economy, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was against of his national view and Balraj Modhak was against his policies towards Kashmir. In fact, it was Shyama Prasad Mukherjee who created the opposition in true sense. He was the first who tried to educate people against wrong policies of Nehru. He had this vision, which no one else had that time. Later on, C. Rajgopalchari, Prushotam Das Tandon and many other leaders left Congress but they were unable to win. Therefore, he joined the hand to the RSS to create a strong opposition. He brought the RSS into politics. Later on Lok Nayak Jay Prakash Narayan took his vision and seeked students support against emergency. After SPM, it was Balraj Madhok who made Jan Sangh stronger and there were 33 MPs during his presidency. When Shyama Prasad was in the Congress, Balraj had his own party for raising the issues of Kashmiri Pandit. He joined the hand with SPM just to make a stronger platform.

First time when BJP came in power, they used to cry that they had no majority to fulfill the Hindutava agenda. However, today, when Modi jee has full power, the BJP government choose Atal Bihari Vajpayee ahead of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee. There was no chance for Balraj Madhok as RSS don’t like to show his name and face during the RSS’s or BJP’s meeting; however, they still show Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Din Dayal’s photos. What is the reason for ignoring Shyama Prasad? The reason is the hunger for power at cost of Hindutva. The RSS’s ideology of Hindutva is fake. That’s the reason they dropped Balraj Madhok who was a major voice for Kashmiri Pandit. And, this time they dropped Shyama Prasad for the Bharat Ratan. They want to form a government. For this they have to join the hand with either PDP or NC. The Bharat Ratan award to Shyama Prasad was dependent on the mission -44 in Kashmir’s election. They waited till the result and dropped his name due to the failure of mission-44. Giving award to Shyama Prasad would have indicted that BJP is still behind article 370. It was Vajpayee who always helped the RSS to drop these controversial points when it was needed. Moreover, recognizing Atal jee disconnected BJP and RSS from the Jan Sangh’s ideology. BJP is a party, which is totally dependent on the RSS whereas the RSS was like younger brother before Shyama Prasad and Balraj Modhak.

For his “congress-mukta Bharat”, I was expecting Bharat Ratna for Ram Manohar Lohiya, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, Balraj Modhak, Chandrashekhar and P.V. Narshimha Rao at this time and not for Atal Jee.
