तमन्ना


इन काली-काली आँखों में,
मैं काजल बनके बस जाऊँ।
कुछ प्यार-मोहब्बत की बातें,
कुछ चंदा-तारें ले आऊँ.
कभी बादल बनके बिचरूँ,
इन उड़ती-उड़ती तेरी जुल्फों में.
फिर कभी छम-छम करके बरसूँ,
तेरे उन्नत-उन्नत बक्षों पे.
तेरी गोरी-गोरी काया पे,
चन्दन सा मैं घिस जाऊँ।
कुछ प्यार-मोहब्बत की बातें,
कुछ हल्दी-उबटन लगाऊँ।

एक प्रयास हो


अधूरी तमन्नाएँ, शिकार करती हैं,
जिस्म पे नहीं, मन पे प्रहार करती हैं,
इनसे भी जो बच जाओ,
तो फिर, हताश करती हैं.
तो उठों, दोस्तों,
एक प्रयास हो.
ये मालुम है की हार निश्चित हैं मेरी,
मगर कहीं तो अपना विकास हो.
कब तक बहायेंगे ये आंसूं गरीब बनके,
अपनी ही बस्ती में अमीरों की जागीर बनके।
तो उठों, दोस्तों,
एक प्रयास हो.
अपने भी जीवन का,
कोई तो एक श्रृंगार हो,
ये मालुम है की हार निश्चित हैं मेरी,
मगर कहीं तो अपना विकास हो.

बेवफा


आज जब रोता हूँ तो आँसूं नहीं निकलते हैं.
जब आँसूं निकल रहा था, मैं रो नहीं रहा था.

रोग


बिषय ही ऐसा था,
विवाद हो गया,
सारे शहर में खुले – आम,
बवाल हो गया.
दुकानें हो गयी बंद,
और,
लोग घरों में छुप गए,
गली-गली में ऐसे,
कोहराम मच गया.
छा गए थे जो बादल,
बरसने को उमड़-उमड़ के,
वो भी छट गए,
और,
सूरज फिर से प्रखर हो गया.
देखो, कैसे अब,
आसमां का रंग बदल गया.
अमीर के घरों पे आ गए हैं तारे,
और गरीब,
जला-जला कर दिया,
हर रात गरीब हो रहा.
भूख से बिलखती एक भीड़ देखी,
जिसे, एक नेता,
आज अमीर बनने का सपना दे गया.
भैंसो पे बैठे, हँसते बच्चे,
आज उनको कोई हाथों में मोबाइल दे गया.
की शहर से फैला ये रोग,
आज गावँ-गावँ में आ गया.

The girl with the newspapers


She was on the opposite berth and I was on the side lower berth. I easily got inside the Sharmjeevi Express that runs between Patna and Delhi. It was one of those days when I used to travel a lot due to medical entrance examinations. Even if Kolkata is closer, I used to prefer Delhi. It was because I never enjoyed newspapers that were published in WB at that time. Reading newspapers was my trick to get seat in trains, however, that day I had my reservation. When people used to buy cold drinks and foods, I used to buy all newspapers in the journey. It was that time when I developed interest in politics especially world politics due to this habit.

After some time the train started moving and people occupied their place. I looked in the cabin and realized after some time that she was with her family. I started reading newspapers and it did not bother anyone in the cabin. At the Mughalsarai Junction, I took some other newspapers. Then, the interaction started with her family, as they were curious to know what I did as I was continuous reading newspapers that contained the same news. The whole journey, we just looked each other while I was talking with her parents. In the night after food, she told something to her mother and her mother slept on the lower berth while she was sitting at the window. I realized on that day that girls look beautiful in the night. And then the moment came; she collected all the pages of all newspapers that her family took from me but did not returned. As a 10+2 guy, I was wrong in thinking that she would return that to me.

So, the whole night she was reading newspapers and I was staring at her. I was confused whether she was reading to show her feeling or appreciation for me or as a typical Indian girl she inhibited her desire to know the world before her family. Indian girls like to do things in last if other family member is also interested like eating. It still haunts me when I remember that journey. I don’t know when I slept or she stopped reading. In the morning at Delhi junction, her father awoke me and gave his best wishes for my examination, while she just gave me a smile. I collected my belongings and looked for newspapers. However, I did not see any page in the whole cabin. I had lost them.

प्रेम और प्रेमा


प्रेम: मुझ इस बात का अफ़सोस नहीं की तुम मुझसे प्यार नहीं करती। बल्कि इस बात की ख़ुशी है की तुम बिना प्यार के भी मेरे साथ रहती हो.
प्रेमा: मैं इसलिए तुम्हारे साथ नहीं रहती की तुम्हे ख़ुशी मिले, न ही मैं इसलिए तुम्हे छोड़ के नहीं जा रही की तुम्हे दुःख होगा। मैं इसलिए तुम्हारे साथ हूँ क्यों की मैं जिंदगी को समझती हूँ.

किस्मते-दर्जी


दिल कब का टूट कर, समुन्दर में बह गया,
वो अब तक दरिया में प्यार ढूंढती हैं.
इश्क़ का मेरा चूल्हा, जल कर कब का बुझ गया,
और वो अब तक सिलवट पे सरसो पिसती हैं.
निगाहों में उनके हैं कितने ही परदे,
कोई हाय, शर्म, लज्जा तो कोई मोहब्बत कहता हैं,
जब भी देखता हूँ इन पर्दों के अंदर,
बस सोना, चांदी और पैसों का चमक दीखता हैं.
कौन कहता है की मोहब्बत दिलवालो का खेल हैं,
आज भी उनका दुपट्टा कहीं और,
तो कमीज, कहीं और ही सिलता है.

Kashmiri politician are the most honest politician in India: as per Arvind Kejriwaal


Recently, I read an article where Arvind Kejriwaal asked many questions from the BJP state president, Delhi, for his involvement in some company. My only point is why he raised such things against politician who are fighting against him at present time. At the time of Lok-Sabha election, he jumped against Modi in Gujrat, same thing he is doing here. All the other time he is just silent or he does not care. He never tells anything against Mulayam Singh, Sharad Pawar and even Om Prakash Chautala. He told nothing against Jayalalitha and Krunanidhi. Now he is silent against Congress since BJP is the main challenger.

It is beyond my capacity to understand. In my view, he is the most dangerous person because if somebody is against him does not mean that the guy is most corrupt.

Does AK feel that people from Bollywood are more honest? He never tells how much illegal money they have or about their connection with underworld.

Why did he not suggest the people of Kashmir about any corrupt politician in just finished election? I think the politicians from Kashmir are most honest one as per AK.

ब्रह्मचर्य और नारी


अगर ब्रह्मचर्य से ही परमानन्द की प्राप्ति होती, तो खच्चर यूँ धरती पे बोझ न ढोता। और, अगर एक नारी एक नारी का दर्द समझ सकती तो टाइगर वुड्स को दुबारा प्यार नहीं प्राप्त होता।
