कितना सुहाना लगता है

तुम्हारे शहर का मौसम,

अगर इजाज़त हो तो

मैं एक शाम चुरा लूं…

How endearing is the

weather of your city,

If allowed, then I’d like

to steal an evening…

☆☆☆☆☆

आओ गले मिल कर

ये देखें कि…

अब हम में

कितनी दूरी है…

Come, let’s hug each other

and check…

How much of distance is

left between us…!

☆☆☆☆☆

कभी लफ्जों में ना तलाश

करना वजूद मेरा…

मैं उतना लिख नहीं पाता

much as I want you…!

 ? – Nothing to Lose – ? ☆ Shri Ashish Mulay 

I am not afraid of Poverty

For Wealth has taught me

To sit Idle and do Nothing…

I am not afraid of Lacking

For even at the top of Mountain

You lack Company…

I am not afraid of Uncertainty

For I know that Destiny

cannot be Bought…

I am not afraid of Missing-out

For Everything that happens Outside

Ultimately is felt Inside only…

Don’t be afraid of “Life”

For when you die in arms of “Contentment”

You really have “Nothing to Lose”

देखी जो नब्ज मेरी नासाज़

हँस  कर  बोला हकीम,

Said the Hakim, laughingly

Go to him who’s is medicine

for your each n every ailment..!

काश सीख पाते हम भी

मीठा झूठ बोलने का हुनर…

Not sure how many people the

bitter truth has snatched from me…!

चल उठ ना, ऐ मेरे दिन

चल फिर से मुस्कुराते हैं,

फिर एक नया ज़ख्म खाते हैं

Let’s get a new wound

and forget it by laughingh…!

We present his awesome poem Taboos We extend our heartiest thanks to the learned author Captain Pravin Raghuvanshi Ji, who is very well conversant with Hindi, Sanskrit,  English and Urdu languages for sharing this classic poem.  

☆ Taboos…?

Kept churning the whole life

As the time passed away in resolving

dilemma of defining sins and good deeds,

Taboos kept shutting the doors…

 

Though it was just at a handshake, but

that could never be gotten lifelong,

At each step the noose kept tightening,

Taboos kept shutting the door…

 

Infinite yearnings, countless curiosities,

Kept reincarnating unresolved, and

perished too uncomprehended,

Taboos kept shutting the door…

 

Limited lifespan, Endless desires

Previous births, sagas of reincarnation

Kept taking away the life, as ever

Taboos kept shutting the door…

 

Life revolves around the breath

As life resides in every breath, but

It kept suffocating on each breath,

Taboos kept shutting the door…

 

Keep discarding the unwanted

Life the life you ever wanted,

The life remained hidden in the flint,

Taboos kept shutting the door…!

रात क्या होती है

हमसे पूछिए ना

आप तो सोये और…

बस सुबह हो गई…

What is the night,

just ask me,

You just sleep

and it’s morning…

☆☆☆☆☆

तलब करें तो मैं अपनी

आँखें भी उन्हें दे दूँ ,

मगर लोग तो मेरी आँखों

के  ख़्वाब  माँगते  हैं…

If you desire, I’m willing

to give my eyes to them,

but people ask for the

dreams of my eyes…

☆☆☆☆☆

मैं अभी से किस तरह से

उसको  बेवफ़ा  कहूँ,

बात तो मंज़िलों की है

रास्ते में क्या बयां करूं…

How can I just call her

unfaithful now itself,

It’s a matter of destination,

why to comment while enroute…!

☆☆☆☆☆

जलते सूरज ने गुरूर से कहा,

है क्या कोई मेरे जैसा…

तभी एक नन्हा सा दीया बोला,

जब शाम होगी तब देखेंगे…!

The burning sun said proudly,

Is there anyone like me…

Then a small lamp said,

We’ll see when it is evening!

श्री संजय भारद्वाज जी की मूल रचना 

? त्रिशंकु ??

स्थितियाँ हैं कि

जीने नहीं देती और

मेरी जिजीविषा है कि

मरने नहीं देती..,

सुनो सत्यव्रत!

तुम अकेले

त्रिशंकु नहीं हुए

इस जगत में..!

 English Version by – Captain Pravin Raghuvanshi
? Suspended… ??

Circumstances

don’t let me live…

But my will-to-live

doesn’t allow me to die…

Listen Satyavrat!

You alone are not the only

Trishanku*, -the suspended one

in this world..!

~Pravin

* ( Trishanku Due to the stubbornness of King Satyavrat, Sage Vishwamitra tried to send him to heaven bodily. Indra pushed him down, but then, the enraged Vishwamitra did not allow him to fall on the earth. It is believed that Satyavrat remained hanging upside down and was called Trishanku.)

गिले शिकवे ही तो थे

आंखों से गिर गए होंगे,

A little bit of experience of the

life, I too have gone through…!

ख़ता  का  तो  पता  नहीं,

बस सजा काटे जा रहे हैं,

मुश्किलें  तमाम  छुपा  कर

बस ख़ुशियाँ बाँटे जा रहे हैं…

Not sure about the fault, but

just serving the punishment,

Hiding all the rigmarole of life,

just doling out happiness…

जिसे कभी न आने की

कसमें देकर आया हूं,*

But, desperately wait for the

sound of his footsteps, too..!

☆ They begin to say a lot…!?

When the love blossoming

      in starry night

Starts to fade away

      in the light…,

Oh! They begin to say a lot…!

 

When the shattered words

      Find the meaning

And, they start flowing

      from the eyes…

Oh! They begin to say a lot…!

 

When those burnt

      pieces of the letter

Rather than turning into ash

      start to burn the heart

Oh! They begin to say a lot…!

 

When scattered pages of the

      life start flying away

Slipping away from

      the shivering hands…

Oh! They begin to say a lot…!

 

He too was silent

      and  me too silent,

When the ever chirping

      lips get sewn,

Oh! They begin to say a lot…!

हिन्दी साहित्य – कविता ☆ “आयलान” एवं “Aylan” (अंग्रेजी भावानुवाद) ☆ – श्री हेमन्त बावनकर ☆

श्री हेमन्त बावनकर

(यह कविता समर्पित है तीन वर्षीय सीरियन बालक आयलान को जो उन समस्त बच्चों का प्रतिनिधित्व करता है जो विश्व में युद्ध की विभीषिका में इस संसार को छोड़ कर चले गए। आज ही के दिन 2सितंबर 2015 की एक सुबह आयलान का मृत शरीर तुर्की के समुद्र तट पर लावारिस हालात में मिला। उसे भले ही विश्व भूल गया हो किन्तु वह जो प्रश्न अपने पीछे छोड़ गया हैं, उन्हें कोई भी संवेदनशील व्यक्ति नहीं भूल सकता। इस कविता का अंग्रेजी अनुवाद  भी  इस कविता के अंत में प्रस्तुत है। इस कविता का जर्मन अनुवाद भी  उपलब्ध है । )

☆ आयलान  ☆

धीर गंभीर

समुद्र तट

और उस पर

औंधा लेटा,

नहीं-नहीं

समुद्री लहरों द्वारा

जबरन लिटाया गया

एक निश्चल-निर्मल-मासूम

‘आयलान’!

वह नहीं जानता

कैसे पहुँच गया

इस निर्जन तट पर।

कैसे छूट गई उँगलियाँ

भाई-माँ-पिता की

दुनिया की

सबको बिलखता छोड़।

 

वह तो निकला था

बड़ा सज-धज कर

देखने

एक नई दुनिया

सुनहरी दुनिया

माँ बाप के साये में

खेलने

नए देश में

नए परिवेश में

नए दोस्तों के साथ

बड़े भाई के साथ

जहां

सुनाई न दे

गोलियों की आवाज

किसी के चीखने की आवाज।

 

सिर्फ और सिर्फ

सुनाई दे

चिड़ियों की चहचाहट

बच्चों की किलकारियाँ।

बच्चे

चाहे वे किसी भी रंग के हों

चाहे वे किसी भी मजहब के हों

क्योंकि

वह नहीं जानता

और जानना भी नहीं चाहता

कि

देश क्या होता है?

देश की सीमाएं क्या होती हैं?

देश का नागरिक क्या होता है?

देश की नागरिकता क्या होती है?

शरण क्या होती है?

शरणार्थी क्या होता है?

आतंक क्या होता है?

आतंकवादी क्या होता है?

वह तो सिर्फ यह जानता है

कि

धरती एक होती है

सूरज एक होता है

और

चाँद भी एक होता है

और

ये सब मिलकर सबके होते हैं।

साथ ही

इंसान बहुत होते हैं।

इंसानियत सबकी एक होती है।

 

फिर

पता नहीं

पिताजी उसे क्यों ले जा रहे थे

दूसरी दुनिया में

अंधेरे में

समुद्र के पार

शायद

वहाँ गोलियों की आवाज नहीं आती हो

किसी के चीखने की आवाज नहीं आती हो

किन्तु, शायद

समुद्र को यह अच्छा नहीं लगा।

समुद्र नाराज हो गया

और उन्हें उछालने लगा

ज़ोर ज़ोर से

ऊंचे

बहुत ऊंचे

अंधेरे में

उसे ऐसे पानी से बहुत डर लगता है

और

अंधेरे में कुछ भी नहीं दिख रहा है

उसे तो उसका घर भी नहीं दिख रहा था

माँ भी नहीं

भाई भी नहीं

पिताजी भी नहीं

 

फिर

क्योंकि वह सबसे छोटा था न

और

सबसे हल्का भी

शायद

इसलिए

समुद्र की ऊंची-ऊंची लहरों नें

उसे चुपचाप सुला दिया होगा

इस समुद्र तट पर

बस

अब पिताजी आते ही होंगे ………. !

(This poem is dedicated to a three-year-old Syrian boy ‘Aylan’ who represents all children who left this world under shadows of war. The dead body of ‘Aylan’ was found unattended on the beach of Turkey on 2nd September 2015. The world will forget him one day, but, one cannot forget the questions that he left behind him. The Hindi and German Version of this poem is also available.)

and he

calm, serene, innocent

Aylan

rolled inverted,

 

No…. no…

forcibly laid down

by the sea.

He does not know

how he reached on

the deserted beach.

 

How he missed

fingers of daddy.

Leaving the world

and everyone

in deep sorrow.

 

He left his homeland

with parents

to see and experience

the new world,

golden world

in the shadow of parents

to play

with new friends

in a new country

in new surroundings

with new friends

with elder brother

where,

he will not hear

any gunshots

anyone’s screams.

 

He will be able to hear

only and only

birds’ chirping sounds

children’s laughter.

Children!

Whether they are

of any colour,

of any religion.

Because,

he does not know

and

does not want to know

that –

What is a country?

What are the borders of the country?

What is a citizen?

What is citizenship?

What is a refuge?

What is a refugee?

What is terrorism?

What is a terrorist?

 

He just knows it

that

the earth is one

the sun is one

and

the moon is also one

and

these all are together

for the entire world.

There are so many human beings

but,

the humanity is one.

 

He does not know

why his father was taking them

to another world

in the dark

across the sea.

Maybe,

there,

he will not hear

any gunshots

any cries.

But,

perhaps

the sea did not like it.

The sea was angry

and began to throw them

vigorously

high

very high

in the dark

he was very afraid of the water

and

did not see anything in the dark.

He did not see his home,

even mom,

brother and dad too.

 

Maybe,

he was the youngest

and

lighter than all.

 

Hence,

high-rise waves of the sea

quietly put him to sleep

on the beach

enough,

………. now dad will be here soon!
