कुछ ऐसे कुछ...

मुझे पसंद है

खतों वाली मुहब्बत

पत्थर में लिपटे आते खत

सहेली ने पहुँचाए जो खत

छोटू टॉफ़ी के बदले पहुचाए जो खत

पता पूछने के बहाने थमाये जो खत

भीड़ में बेवक्त हाथ में पायें जो खत

और मुद्दतों बाद सूखे गुलाब से

किताबों में अचानक मिलते खत।।

संघर्ष जमीन और जिदंगी के लिए

तुम्हें तो जमीन की तलाश थी

अदृश्य हाथों ने समुद्र के बीचों बीच फेंक दिया

समुद्र के बीच तूफान के हमले

धरती पर इंसानों का ताडंव

तुम्हें सारा जीवन सघर्ष ही तो करना था

अच्छे नम्बरों के लिए, नौकरी के लिए,

जीवन-मृत्यु के संघर्ष में क्यों पड़े

अयलान तुम्हारी समुद्री यात्रा

"लाइफ आफ पॉय"जैसी फिल्मी क्यों नहीं बन पाई

ईश्वर का छिपा हाथ

तुम्हारी तरफ क्यों नहीं बढ़ा

क्यों वैसी जिदंगी तुम्हें जीनी पड़ी

क्यों ऐसी मौत तुम्हें मिली

एक संमदर मेरे अंदर बिफरा हुआ है

चलों कुछ देर इस तट पर विश्राम कर लो

फिर कोई मां तुम्हें अपने गर्भ में धारण करेगी।

P.s 4500 से ज्यादा सीरियाई पिछले पांच साल में मैडिटेरियन समुद्र में डुब कर

जान गंवा चुके हैं।दुसरे विश्व युद्ध के बाद यह सबसे बड़ा इंसानी पलायन

हैंऔर सबसे भीषण शरणार्थी संकट।क  ई देशों ने शरणार्थियों का खुल कर

स्वागत किया तो कई देशों की अपनी मजबूरियां रही इन्हें शरण न दे पाने की।

अयलान कुर्दी एक तीन साल का बच्चा था जो समुद्र तट पर मृत अवस्था में

मिला था। उसके परिवार की नाव समुद्र में डुब गई थी और ये बच्चा उस हादसे

में मारा गया था :(

Gun shots

A man dials his home and a strange woman answers.

The man says, "Who is this? "

"This is the maid," answers the woman.

"We don't have a maid," says the man.

The woman says, "I was hired this morning by the lady of the house. "

The man says, "Well, this is her husband. Is she there? "

The woman replies, "She is upstairs in the bedroom with someone who I figured was her husband. "

The man is fuming and says to the maid, "Listen, would you like to make $50,000? "

The maid says, "What will I have to do? "

The man tells her, "I want you to get my gun from the desk, and shoot the witch and the jerk she's with."

The maid puts the phone down; the man hears footsteps and then two gun shots.

The maid comes back to the phone "What do I do with the bodies? "

The man says, "Throw them in the swimming pool. "

Puzzled, the maid answers, "But you don't have a pool."

A long pause and the man says, "Is this 567-5309? "

एक सच एक भरम

तुम्हारा होना

मरूस्थल में एक झरने की

भीगती उम्मीद सा कुछ

पत्थर की दीवार पर

झूमती लताओं-सा कुछ

तपती धूप में छाई

घटाओं-सा कुछ

उलझी पतंग की

फिर से उड़ान की चाह सा कुछ

दीमक लगे ठूंठ में

हरा-भरा होने की तड़प सा कुछ

तुम्हारा होना

एक सच के साथ

एक भरम लिए हुए

Market of liberation

The fellow has everything. Big business, big income, big empire, big house. Politics also dances on his tunes. So much money is scattered throughout the house. Has all glory, the luxury, all the comfort, all the power, everything one can ever wish for.

But is still miserable; his body is miserable, so he makes someone fix it. His heart is miserable, how will he get it fixed? Fascinations keeps alluring. The allure causes misery, then man wants happiness. But the misery keeps following him. He wants freedom this misery he is fenced in, but while he is surrounded with pleasure.

It said that sin has increased on earth. Its not his sin. All of it belongs to others; he cannot see his own sins.

There is a fear that surrounds him every waking moment. A fear to lose his wealth, prestige and power. Then he starts walking in the maze of temples. He wants freedom from this fear, but the God carved out in stone can neither make any signs through his eyes, nor can he help him through words. Then he starts the walk to find liberation, the liberation market is always open and working well.

The wish for liberation has always been popular among humans. Every other person is a customer of liberation, every other person is waiting for it. These days most are standing in the long Que to get under the shadow of a Baba, Guru or an Aashram.

One sage tells you get to under his/her shelter and to make him/her your teacher. One sage tells you to remove all the alluring fascinations from your mind, and give away all you have to God. Since this sage is the 'Medium', you are told give away everything to him/her so that everything will be better. One sage talks about fixing the body and soul and makes a business out of it that's worth millions. One plays the trumpet of religion worldwide and raises the flags.

When people see their happiness and sadness with sage's eyes, they want the liberation package from him/her. But they do not find liberation even after buying the package. They want to get rid of the sins that are worth five hundred million by buying a 5rs package.

They think that by worshiping or making offerings, their sins shall be lighter.

On the other side, people are out in search for Paradise. Their masters have said that if you do this jihad then you will enter directly into heaven, there Huren will receive you. Allah's bandai believe these people and are ready to do anything they say.

Jannat, Swarg, Heaven, all are in search for them and those who sell these idea are great champions. I don't know for how long these popular pudiya's are being sold, but never saw anyone getting its full benefits.

If we make a list of popular items, then religion, ishwar, khuda and God will probably be at the forefront of the elements, that are given away saying they are the most precious in the whole world. Who knows how long this self have being going on and how long it will keep going.

Whether God exists or not, the knowledgeable ones are always engaged in this pursuit. All religions explains different ways to follow God, but Gods role is the same in all.

When the Vedas, the Upanishads, Puran, Bible, or the Kuran were written, they were not written for the market. Today his followers have decorated these religious text (the medium to God) in best-selling section. (In the Easy-A, Bible was shown in a bookstore being sold in best-selling section with the novel series Twilight; and these sort of things happens in real life too.) Thus religion and sacred idea of ​​God are forced to stand between the alluring world of fascinations. The natural law of God is to avoid illusion, the illusion that the man has now forced him into. Then how will a person find liberation?

Marx had once compared religion with opium. He had well said that religion was the out cry of human sufferings. That opium is now on super sell, Opium from religion than Marx ever had. He also told the roaring of the sufferings of human religion. Opium is now in the super-cell and the outcry has turned into a grand divine Kirtan, have turned into bhajan, in which all dances on the filmy tunes.

The market is worth more than millions. India is at the forefront. The poor do not have bread to eat, but he would have a sage. He is dependent on the sage, and then he is duped. The rich ones have many supports. They are the owner of the super sell.

Religion has always been an absolute inevitable sense, but has not always been used such say. There was discussion of religion along with wrongdoings. Now the wall between religion and irreligion has collapsed. Now is the collapsed wall between religion and irreligion. Today, even the unrighteous ones are righteous.

Many top consumer things seem very popular. Food, clothing, songs, movies, hero-heroin, decorative things, big house, and many more things are popular item. But there is no other item such as religion. These days as the money raises, religion has turned into a glamorous super item and have been decorated on the super sell.

मेरी उड़ान

बेहद ऊंची जगह थी

तुम्हारी, मेरे लिए

आज तुमनें

लुढ़का दिया अपने दिल से

पागल, मैं धड़ाम नहीं गिरूंगी

इतनी ऊंचाई से

संभाल ही लूगी खुद को

और उड़ना सीख जाउंगी

Once I asked my friend, "What is the secret behind your Happy Married Life?"

He said "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."

I asked "Can you explain?"

He said "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my Wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."

Still not convinced, i asked him "Give me some examples".

He said "Smaller issues like, which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit the super market, when to go on vacation, which sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy.

Monthly expenses, whether to keep a maid or not etc. Are all decided by my wife. I just agree to it "

I asked "Then, what is your role?"

He said "My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America should attack Iran, whether to widen the Sri Lankan economy, if Salman, Shahrukh and Amir Khan should do a movie together, when will the third world war happen, whether Mahendar Singh Dhoni should retire from Cricket etc etc. and do you know, my wife, NEVER, objects to any of these decisions".

Wishes away from best

All have compliance, but none have the truth, which is why there is such a chaos on the road of auspicious wishes. And so the most popular formula is that one should do what they enjoy, that will be auspicious for them. What that is good for you might be a poison for me and what the is good for me might poisonous for you.

The human truth is that when you give your best wishes to someone, you give that with your own point of view. Though one should give what the other truly wishes for. A knowledgeable person wants more knowledge, a frat wants more enjoyment.. but then these be won't best wishes, this would be called encouragement.

Sometimes giving your best wishes to someone can be a little dangerous. For example, if you say to gimmicky businessman that he may turn truthful and honest or if you say to a scholar that he may become fundamental; they will growl at you.

The truth is that we live in an age where no one really cares about auspicious things. We have heard since childhood that man is a social animal; war and riots are bad, but the majority of the US considered the attack on Afghanistan and Iraq auspicious. There is an organization in our too, that believes that the more Hindus cause riots, the more bright India's future will become.

As far as terrorists are concerned, they are brought to be used like the goats that are killed on Bakri Eid. Oh I am sorry, made a mistake because of the idiom of giving and taking. Goat is a non-violent creature. He doesn't take a life but gives its own. You must have seen that when a goat is taken away, he keeps looking back. Is he giving his best wishes to other goats, "You are lucky that your are still alive, I wish you stay alive"?

The biggest problem is that a definite time has been set to wish people and the way to wish (tax message) is also changed. New Year or a festival, birthday or a marriage anniversary, no matter what the day is, a sweet itch starts to build up to wish friends, relatives, especially the coworkers. They should get my best wishes before I get theirs.

In the past, greetings were sent through letters. Then came the era of beautiful cards. One could guess the level of the greetings in a Card just by looking at its cost. Those greetings that were average, were thrown away. The grand ones were kept for a long time in the room or under a glass top table. Those people who were not satisfied with the ones in the market, they would get their own cards printed. It is not that they were interested in it, but it was a sign of prosperity.

This is the era of text messages. Cards have printed messages, you only have to write your name and the name of the person you have to send it to. But in text messages, you only have to copy paste the message and hit send.

The second thing is that no one gets any special different greeting. One needs to learn the art of writing for it, and nobody wants to bother to learn that. Plus these days education does not count, literary does. It is quite possible that you might get the same message from ten people. And then a doubt builds up, whose wish is true and whose is not.

There is no such thing left as originality. Millions of people have read the same thing. These days nothing is private and personal.

Humans can not just live by eat or drinking air. Similarly, what happens with just good wishes? Fancy sentences are even found in religious books. You sent a colorful card or a bouquet, what happens with that? At least send something else with it so that you might look like a true well wisher. There is a tradition to send some goods with the greetings, such as fruits, dry fruit, wine, expensive watches, music systems and expensive phone etc.

Scholars believe that the status does not determine the level of greetings, in fact, a person's status is measured by what they got with the greetings.

It is not intended to twist the things to make a point, so at the end I would like to part away by saying that giving and receiving greetings is purely a business of one class.

The one that sends the greetings, tries his best to send it to the upper class. Greeting cards are like ATM cards. You will only get the money you have given. Same way, the greeting cards and the goodies sent with are future investments.

Who sends best wishes to those who have neither a future and nor present.

But wait, you thought wrong. In a democracy these poor, deprived and disadvantaged people are the ones to decide the breakthrough. Every government stands on their votes.

Take my sense-sprinkling best wishes and walk around with the 'Pride' that you are part of world's largest democracy.
