आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ

आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ । कुछ भी, कुछ अच्छा, कुछ बुरा, कुछ अलग और कुछ अनोखा । आज फ़िर से जीना चहता हूँ, फ़िर से रोना चहता हूँ, फ़िर से हँसना चाहता हूँ ।

      अरे याद आया, बहुत दिन हुए मैंने माँ से मार नही खाई, आज फ़िर उससे पिटना चाहता हूँ । आज क्यूँ वो आँखो में आँसू लिये, हाँथों में छ्डी लिये और गुस्से से भरा हुआ चेहरा, घूम रहा है मेरी आँखो के सामने; वो मारती जाती है और खुद रोती जाती है । माँ आज मैं फ़िर से पिटना चाहता हूँ ।

आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ ।

      मुझे पता है कि मैं आज भी गलतियाँ करता हूँ, आज भी तुम्हारा दिल दुखाता हूँ, आज भी तुम्हारी बात नही मानता फ़िर आज, आज क़्यूँ तुम्हारे हाथ नहीं उठते ? शायद बडा हो गया हूँ इसलिए । माँ आज मैं फ़िर से छोटा होना चाहता हूँ, फ़िर से पिटना चाहता हूँ ।

आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ ।

      मैं फ़िर से अपनी पिटाई पर, अपने भाई – बहनों को, बिना वजह रोते हुये देखना चाहता हूँ । हाँ हो सकता है कि इसमे किसी को मेरा स्वार्थ लगे पर फ़िर भी मैं उस एहसास को, उनके रोने में छिपे उनके प्यार को फ़िर से पाना चाहता हूँ ।

आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ ।

      बहुत जी लिया मैने, अब कुछ अलग करना चाहता हूँ । बहुत कर लिया उसे याद मैंने, अब उसे याद आना चाहता हूँ । बहुत तडपा हूँ मैं, अब इक बार फ़िर उसे हँसते हुये देखना चाहता हूँ । दाँतों से अपने होंठ चबाते हुये देखना चाहता हूँ ।

आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ ।

      आज फ़िर से आसमान छूने का सपना देखना चाहता हूँ, आज फ़िर हवा में उडना चाहता हूँ । और इस बार इन सपनों को हकीकत में उतारना चाहता हूँ ।

आज कुछ नया करना चाहता हूँ । कुछ भी, कुछ अच्छा, कुछ बुरा, कुछ अलग और कुछ अनोखा । आज फ़िर से जीना चहता हूँ, फ़िर से रोना चहता हूँ, फ़िर से हँसना चाहता हूँ ।

हम चैन से हैं

हमारे मित्र आदर्श अवस्थी जी कहते हैं --

मधुबनो के साथ , कभी मरुस्थलों के साथ,
हम मुक्त घूमते हैं ,लेकिन बन्धनों के साथ ।
पूछा गया जो हाल ,तो हम मौन रह गए,
कैसे कहें कि.....चैन से हैं, मुश्किलों के साथ ।।

Why they left me when I need them most

Why every time I found some one missing, when I need that one most? I am not talking about losing someone; I am just talking about not getting one in that place where one should be. But in my life I found that, every moment I missed someone, next successive moment was the best moment to have that one with me. I don’t know why it happens to me?
Reason of missing that one could be anything, some uncontrollable circumstances or some stupid decisions. But my problem was always there with me. May be living with them, or having them as a part of my life, I forget their separate existence or maybe I was so habitual of them hence I thought what was special in it? It does not mean I don’t value them, it just means I forget their special effects. And I have to pay for it every time.
Other face of this situation may be: I need them most when they left. It does not mean I cannot survive or live without them, it simply means I need their presence more when they are not their most probable places.
My worst feeling is not being lonely; it is being forgotten by someone I could never forget.  Sometimes in life when we want someone to be with us, and we missed that one then why we make our self comfortable with that one’s memories only. We don’t want to recover even our broken heart.
Our best part of life, our childhood is over now. In childhood period we always wanted to grow fast but now while we are big, we realize that broken pencils and incomplete homework was much better than broken hearts, broken relationships and bitter experiences.
My one friend says that --
“I know who broke your heart!
But I also know you are the only one who didn’t want to fix it.”

May be it is the definition of life like someone said that --
“When I got enough confidence,
The stage was gone.
When I was sure of winning,
I lost.
When I needed people the most,
They left me.
When I learned to dry my tears,
I found a shoulder to cry on.
When I mastered the skill of hating,
Somebody started loving me.
That’s Life!!!!
Enjoy life…!”

An Unfinished Story...6

                                                                            An Unfinished Story...1
          Complete semester came to end and I had not seen her after training. In between I got placed in a software company. Many times I planned to visit her but every time I got some trouble. Now I could not control my desire to see that divine face of my dream girl. One day in Jan I reached her hostel.
Recently I had visited my home, and I was having some homemade my favorite sweets with me like my every visit. My sweet mother always prepares some sweets for me. I did not forget to bring one box, full of sweets for her, and that was my most favorite one.
          She was surprised enough to see me there, she was quite happy. After seeing that box she forgot about me and quickly she took that box from me. She returned to her room to keep that box. I was just staring her to confirm that she was looking more pretty and beautiful than training. Her glowing cheeks were looking just awesome. I was there at about 11 before noon; hence we planned to have lunch together. We left her hostel and started walking and talking. She was having unlimited things to talk about and I was not having a single second to see something else. She was busy in talking and I was busy in doing something else.
          We visited nearest multiplex then found a nice restaurant. That was again a great lunch, by taste and precisely by companion. Then we visited another sweet friend of mine. We enjoyed enough those times. Then we returned to her hostel. Then we spent about more than two hours just doing "Bakwas" in her college, but that "Bakwas" including one fight was the one of the sweetest conversations of my life. And we cannot forget that fight, which was not normal one, which was as serious as she picked a stone for me.
That time I found that clock was running faster compare to other days; hence clock ordered me to left her as completion of that wonderful day. We departed with my heavy heart, cannot say about her. But I knew that she wanted me, according to her as a friend only.

        From that time I had started hating this word "just friend", it came between us and I was helpless, as I could not remove that word from dictionary.
                                                                  Continued ...

An Unfinished Story...5

                                                                            An Unfinished Story...1
             We talk about more than 40 mins and this was the first time I talked with a girl for such a huge duration. We talked about our training days, we reminded our golden days. She was also missing those days like me. I asked her that why she had not tell me about her boyfriend. She said with her great innocence "तुम तो बस मुझे line मार रहे थे, हम तो बस friendship कर रहे थे ना?" Then a large silence, she was right I was just interested in her only for friendship. I was having no reply for this. I was blank again. Again I hear her sweet innocent voice "I am Sorry, मुझे बता देना चाहिए था।" then with little anger "तुम last में मज़ाक-मज़ाक मे इतना serious क्यूँ हो गये थे?" I found a little drop of water in my right eye, I was blank, how could I describe this to her, why I got serious? Why that little truth was hurting me? I just said her "Bye, बाद में बात करतें हैं।".
           Our conversation gave me an unexpected happiness, and I found again clock had changed its speed and came to normal speed. Occasionally we started talking, often weekly. We started sharing a lot of things of our life with each other. We fight many times over stupid things, and the rule was one could not ignore other's call regardless how much one angry with other and one cannot stop the call without getting bye from other person.

An Unfinished Story...4

                                                                            An Unfinished Story...1

            We returned to our colleges for completion of our so called engineering. Time had started moving slowly, yeah I found that it was slower really compare to previous three years. How could time change his speed, not practical na, may be that was my feeling only. One month passed I haven't called her yet just waiting for her call to know whether I got any place in her heart or not, whether she was still interested in me or not. I knew that she was my need but how could I attempt to destroy her world which was already settled with her boyfriend. How could I make her sad? How could I get her in trouble in anyway? May be she was not interested in me anymore so how could I disturb her?

             I started spending my life just keeping her safely in my heart. I was in hurry to finish my graduation but I found that this clock became slower and slower. These were the last days of August when I got her name blinking in my phone, my heart started jumping, and my hand having my cell, was shivering. I just forgot to get her call for few moments; vibration of my cell reminded me that I have a call from someone special.

Loneliness in Life

             Sometimes few things become part of your life like any person, any building, any instrument, any relation and sometimes any feeling, sometimes you gets habitual of those things having positive or negative influence on you and you have to carry on with them.

Loneliness, Emptiness

                Actually I have learnt to live alone, walk alone. Now this loneliness and this emptiness is my companion. Sometimes I get bored with this, it is completely silent, it never answers my questions, it never gives me suggestions, I have to get my answers and I have to reach on my decisions alone. I shared everything of my heart with this, how selfish it is, it never responds me even never utters a single word about itself.

                Yeah it is also true, it never asks me for anything, it has no doubts, no questions and it never misunderstands me. Its quite comfortable to have it as a part of life, it not hurts me anymore because now I get quite habitual with this.

                 But there is something missing, and I do not know this Something as well as I do not know why and from where it is missing. Having all these benefits why still I am feeling lonely ... ??? Why I am alone ?

An Unfinished Story... 2

                                                                            An Unfinished Story...1

              She was sitting three rows in front of me in my facing direction. I had completed my assignment early since I was already well aware of Core Java. I was thinking to approach her, but I was blank how should I start. Somehow I reached near her seat she was busy in doing her assignments, bending towards her I murmured "May I help you?" She looked at me and nodded her head, assuming it a positive response I pulled a chair near her and started looking to her monitor seriously to find out what she were trying to do. I heard a sound of her, like "मैंने कर लिया है". What was that, I again blanked without knowing anything what I should do now, I was about to return by saying "Okk Then". Then she said with great innocence ..."अच्छा next program देख लो"डूबने बाले को क्या चहियेएक तिनका हि ना" That sentence was that तिनका for me. This was the second day of my industrial training and first day of my friendship with her.

                Next day she was already there when I reached, having one seat left in both sides. I directly went there and ask that May I sit here and before getting any answer I sat there. That was the seat for her friend (that another girl).But after she booked other side of seat for her. Now chatting is started...

                   I actually started loving her presence with me. I got friendship with her friend as well. Now we three were like an entity, every time and everywhere we were together. I usually went early to training center and eagerly started waiting for her. Once or twice I said to her to come early but she was not able to wake up early. But time in Training Center now became more valuable than time I spent in home. I started trying daily to extend that time with her. Every day I came early in the hope may be she was there. That was my routine.

                One day in tea break we were going towards canteen. During talks I said मैं तुम्हें बहुत line मारता हूँ ना?” Now she was blank with question marks & a cute smile in her face. अरे पूरा training center जनता हैनही तो नानू(Fake Name) से पूछ लो I said pointing towards her friend now our common friend. She replied diplomatically “I don’t Know”. Now we finished with a great laugh. Actually we all were enjoying company of each other. Those were the unforgettable golden two months of my life. We all were very happy and this was also not affecting our training. We were sincere in class rooms and labs, in between we did all fun.


An Unfinished Story... 1

NOTE: इस कहानी के सभी पात्र एवं घटनाएँ काल्प्निक हैं, यदि इनकी किसी व्यक्ति या घटना से कोई समानता होती है तो इसे मात्र एक संयोग कहा जायेगा।

            After 3 years I return to Kanpur the historical city, not for visiting some place, not to see any person, actually I need to attend my Btech Industrial training of J2EE. My father managed somewhere to stay for two months. This was the first day, I reached my training center, and I found some of my college friends there, waving hands with them we start asking about classrooms and about training they opted. Finally I reached my class room having two of my college friends with me. Now topic changed from training to girls. I was thinking about to find a girl for me. This time I was serious to try myself to get a girl not for love only for friendship. That time I was having no trust in love type thing. That day I found it’s a great opportunity to find a girl for me; there are no many known people to tease me. First day gone ... this was related to core java.

              Second day, I was thinking about first day's thought. I was in the class room, people were coming, it was still 4-5 minutes to start the class. There are already a bunch of smart girls are there but I was not interested in them at all. I was just watching every person entering the class room. Then our instructor arrived, everyone started to get settled. That the moment I found 2 girls entering in the class, one of them got my eyes and what the hell was happened with my eyes, they were not ready to leave her for single second. Class had started; luckily I was sitting in second row's rightmost seat from where I can see instructor as well as that girl with a little turn of my neck. I was so happy, so excited, and so eager to see her. Having an innocent face with fair color she looked like the cutest girl I have ever seen in my life. Her beautiful eyes, a sweet nice smile on her face, bearing a decent Indian outfit and her biting of nail of her thumb make her just sweetheart. I was silently started see her repeatedly. Just after few minutes she noticed me & tried to sit being more careful. But I continued gently, I was not staring her continuously, I was trying to get a gentle look of her most of times during class. During this I found a glimpse of bigger smile in her face, I don't know the reason may be because of me or may be because of other girl with whom she was talking. But that glimpse made me happier and more confident. Now it was time to get lab sessions, we left our class for lab.

An Unfinished Story... 3

                                                                            An Unfinished Story...1

                Our time was going on and on, now those days were the last days for completion of my training project. We were in the same team. That time a college friend of mine asked me वो girlfriend है तुम्हारी?”  I said “Why are you asking?” He replied actually वो किसी और की girlfriend है.” That was a normal cool statement, but it shocked me. Don’t know why, I have not started this keeping in mind more than friendship, then why it was hurting me? I was not able to sleep for a second at that night, I spent whole night just thinking about her. That was the first night of my life I spent over thinking about a girl. She was obviously not most beautiful girl there. But why only she had captured my attention. Why she had not told me about her boyfriend? Why this was hurting me so much? Why I was restless? Why I was not able to take it normally? Yeah it’s true both of those were the sweetest friends I have ever got.

              Now only two days were remaining for our training and those were the toughest days of my life. I spent somehow and last day we all three went for a lunch together. After having a nice lunch we departed with promises that we will be in touch. Now I with our third friend Nanu was walking few minutes to get auto rickshaw, I don’t how she understood about my deep desire, said मिल जाएगी यार उससे अच्छी मिल जाएगीdon’t worry. Without minding this how she knew it, I just replied नही चाहिये यारनही चाहिये इससे अच्छीमुझे तो बस यही चाहिये.”

Finally I used my first YTN card after so many months. Today while shopping at the particular store saw this lady looking around and trying out many clothes, but she didn’t find anything for herself. She came up to me asking that she actually is looking for something as she wants to exchange it with something she has bought before, and wanted me to buy what I wanted to in exchange of hers as she didn’t wanted to have credit note and come back again for that. After billing was done, I gave my first YTN card and told her to be there for someone else in future.."

आठ पापों का घड़ा

                 एक बार कवि कालिदास बाजार में घूमने निकले। एक स्त्री घड़ा और कुछ कटोरियाँ लेकर बैठी थी ग्राहकों के इन्तजार में। कविराज की कौतूहल हुआ कि यह महिला क्या बेचती है ! पास जाकर पूछा :
              "बहन ! तुम क्या बेचती हो ?"
              "मैं पाप बेचती हूँ। मैं लोगों से स्वयं कहती हूँ कि मेरे पास पाप है, मर्जी हो तो ले लो। फिर भी लोग चाहत पूर्वक पाप ले जाते हैं।" महिला ने कुछ अजीब सी बात कही। कालिदास उलझन में पड़ गये। पूछाः
             "घड़े में कोई पाप होता है?"
             "हाँ... हाँ.. होता है, जरूर होता है। देखो जी, मेरे इस घड़े में आठ पाप भरे हुए हैं- बुद्धिनाश, पागलपन, लड़ाई-झगड़े, बेहोशी, विवेक का नाश, सदगुण का नाश, सुखों का अन्त और नर्क में ले जाने वाले तमाम दुष्कृत्य।"
             "अरे बहन ! इतने सारे पाप बताती है तो आखिर है क्या तेरे घड़े में? स्पष्टता से बता तो कुछ समझ में आवे।" कालिदास की उत्सुकता बढ़ रही थी।
             वह स्त्री बोलीः 'शराब ! शराब !! शराब!!! यह शराब ही उन सब पापों की जननी है। जो शराब पीता है वह उन आठों पापों का शिकार बनता है।" कालिदास उस महिला की चतुराई पर खुश हो गये।

En Bottles ko main kya naam du ?
              ये मदिरा कभी कभी इन्सान को हैवान क्यूं बना देती है ? कभी कभी ये लोगों को अपने रिश्तों से, नातों से, दूसरे व्यक्तियों से, समाज से, सभ्यता से, इन्सानियत से, और कभी कभी तो स्वयं से ही सम्मानित और महत्वपूर्ण क्यूं लगने लगती है ? क्यूं कभी कभी ये किसी के दाम्पत्य जीवन का, कभी किसी मित्रता का, कभी किसी पवित्र उद्देश्य का और कभी किसी वयक्तिविशेष का ही व्यवधान बनकर रह जाती है ? और यही कभी कभी किसी ऐसी घटना का बीज बन जाती है जो किसी का दुर्भाग्य बन जाती है, किसी का जीवन नष्ट कर देती है और कभी, कभी उसी व्यक्ति के लिये जीवन भर उसी के चरित्र का कलंक बन कर रह जाती है। आखिर क्यूं ?

                    हाँ ये सच है जो भी ज्येष्ठ बच्चन जी ने कहा है मधुशाला में :-

मुसलमान औ' हिन्दू है दो, एक, मगर, उनका प्याला,
एक, मगर, उनका मदिरालय, एक, मगर, उनकी हाला,
दोनों रहते एक न जब तक मस्जिद मन्दिर में जाते,
बैर बढ़ाते मस्जिद मन्दिर मेल कराती मधुशाला!।।

                  हाँ सच है, और एक सच ये भी है कि यही मदिरा कभी कभी किसी के जीवन मे इतना विष घोल देती है कि ना केवल उसका जीवन अपितु उसके निकट सम्बंधियों और मित्रों का जीवन भी पशुवत कर देती है । यही मदिरा कभी कभी मित्रों के किसी छोटे से मनमुटाव को बढावा दे कर जीवन मरण की शत्रुता बना देती है। हाँ कभी ये मदिरा कराती है मेल गर्व के पर्वत पिघला कर और कभी यही मदिरा मजबूर कर देती है व्यक्तियों को अपनी सभ्यता, अपना चरित्र, अपना स्वाभिमान और अपने सम्मान को ताक पर रखकर, मनुष्य जीवन की क्षुद्र पिपासायों को महत्व देने पर।

कहा है किसी ने :
दारू पीने वाला, मैं हूँ दारू पीने वाला ।
मुझको दुश्मन क्या मारेगें, मैं तो खुद ही मरने वाला ॥

ये वही मदिरा है जो कभी किसी निर्दोष राह चलते व्यक्ति के हँसते खेलते खुशहाल जीवन में आग लगा देती है, क्या गलती होगी उस व्यक्ति की और उस व्यक्ति के परिवार की जो किसी निरंकुश मदिरा पीने वाले की असावधानी का फ़ल भुगते।

बच्चन जी ने कहा है कि …
बिना पिये जो मधुशाला को बुरा कहे, वह मतवाला,
पी लेने पर तो उसके मुहँ पर पड़ जाएगा ताला 

               मुझे नहीं समझ आता कि उन्होने ऐसा क़्यूं कहा कि मदिरा को बुरा कहने वाला एक बार उसे पी लेने पर मदिरा को बुरा कहना बन्द कर देगा। एक बार मदिरा पी लेने के बाद क्या मदिरा के बुरे प्रभाव नष्ट हो जाएगें, या फ़िर उसे मदिरा के ये बुरे प्रभाव दिखना बन्द हो जाएगें। मुझे तो इनमे से कछ भी सच नहीं लगता। मैं इतने विश्वास से यह कह सकता हूँ क्यूँकि मैं ये प्रयोग स्वयं करके देख चुका हुँ।
              समाचार पत्र देख लिजिये किसी भी दिन का, कोई शराब के नशे में अपने पिता को पीटता मिल जायेगा, कोई अपनी पत्नी या बच्चों को, कोई इसी शराब मे जहर बेचता है तो कोई इसी के सहारे कोकेन और हिरोइन जैसे व्यसन।
             आत्मभाव से सृष्टि का सम्राट बनने के लिए निर्मित मानव जीवभाव से कैसे पतन के गर्त में गिरता जाता है और स्वयं को ही कष्ट देता है उसका उत्तम उदाहरण देखना हो तो आप धूम्रपान और सुरा जैसे व्यसनों के प्रेमी व्यक्ति को देख लीजिए। पाश्चात्य शिक्षा के रंग में हुए लोग कई बार मानते हैं कि दारू का थोड़ा इस्तेमाल आवश्यक और लाभप्रद है। वे अपने आपको सुधरे हुए मानते हैं। लेकिन यह उनकी भ्रांति है। डॉ. टी.एल. निकल्स लिखते हैं- "जीवन के लिए किसी भी प्रकार और किसी भी मात्रा में अल्कोहल की आवश्यकता नहीं है। दारू से कोई भी लाभ होना असंभव है। दारू से नशा उत्पन्न होता है लेकिन साथ ही साथ अनेक रोग भी पैदा होते हैं। जो लोग सयाने हैं और सोच समझ सकते हैं, वे लोग मादक पदार्थों से दूर रहते हैं। भगवान ने मनुष्य को बुद्धि दी है, इससे बुद्धिपूर्वक सोचकर उसे दारू से दूर रहना चाहिए।"

जाम पर जाम पीने से क्या फायदा
रात बीती सुबह को उतर जायेगी।
तू हरि रस की प्यालियाँ पी ले
तेरी सारी ज़िन्दगी सुधर जाएगी।।

प्रसिद्ध दार्शनिक डायोजिनीज को उनके मित्रों ने महँगे शराब का जाम भर दिया। डायोजिनीज ने कचरापेटी में डाल दिया। मित्रों ने कहाः "इतनी कीमती शराब आपने बिगाड़ दी?"
      "तुम क्या कर रहे हो?" डायोजिनीज ने पूछा।
      "हम पी रहे हैं।" जवाब मिला।
      "मैंने जो चीज कचरापेटी में उड़ेली वही चीज तुम अपने मुँह में उड़ेलकर अपना विनाश कर रहे हो। मैंने तो शराब ही बिगाड़ी लेकिन तुम शराब और जीवन दोनों बिगाड़ रहे हो।"

My Readings: आत्मकथा : राम प्रसाद विस्मिल

         क्या लिखूं उसके बारे में, जिसके बारे में मैं कुछ नही जनता सिवाय इसके कि वो एक आंधी थी जिसने इस देश को गुलामी की जंजीरों से मुक्त होने की कोशिश करना सिखाया, स्वतंत्र भारत का स्वप्न दिखाया, गुलामों को मानव होने का एहसास दिलाया ।

         फ़ासी के तख्ते पर चढते हुये उनके अन्तिम शब्द थे …

मालिक तेरी रजा रहे और तू ही तू रहे ,
बाकी न मैं रहूँ, न मेरी आरजू रहे ।
ज़ब तक कि तन में जान, रगों में लहू रहे,
तेरा ही जिक्र या तेरी ही जुस्तजू रहे ।।

   तत्पश्चात उन्होंने कहा – “I wish the downfall of british empire. Jai Hind”

Inspiring lines by him …
महसूस हो रहे हैं बादे फना के झोंके ।
खुलने लगे हैं मुझ पर असरार जिन्दगी के ॥
बारे अलम उठाया रंगे निशात देता ।
आये नहीं हैं यूं ही अन्दाज बेहिसी के ॥
वफा पर दिल को सदके जान को नजरे जफ़ा कर दे ।
मुहब्बत में यह लाजिम है कि जो कुछ हो फिदा कर दे ॥
बहे बहरे फ़ना में जल्द या रव लाश 'बिस्मिल' की ।
कि भूखी मछलियां हैं जौहरे शमशीर कातिल की ॥
समझकर कूँकना इसकी ज़रा ऐ दागे नाकामी ।
बहुत से घर भी हैं आबाद इस उजड़े हुए दिल से ॥
सताये तुझको जो कोई बेवफा, 'बिस्मिल'
तो मुंह से कुछ न कहना आह ! कर लेना ॥
हम शहीदाने वफा का दीनों ईमां और है ।
सिजदे करते हैं हमेशा पांव पर जल्लाद के
यदि देश-हित मरना पड़े मुझको सहस्रों बार भी
तो भी न मैं इस कष्‍ट को निज ध्यान में लाऊँ कभी ।
हे ईश भारतवर्ष में शत बार मेरा जन्म हो,
कारण सदा ही मृत्यु का देशोपकारक कर्म हो ॥
मरते 'बिस्मिल' 'रोशन' 'लहरी' 'अशफाक' अत्याचार से ।
होंगे पैदा सैंकड़ों इनके रुधिर की धार से ॥

कृष्ण की चेतावनी

वर्षों तक वन में घूम-घूम, बाधा-विघ्नों को चूम-चूम,
सह धूप-घाम, पानी-पत्थर, पांडव आये कुछ और निखर।
सौभाग्य न सब दिन सोता है, देखें, आगे क्या होता है।
मैत्री की राह बताने को, सबको सुमार्ग पर लाने को,
दुर्योधन को समझाने को, भीषण विध्वंस बचाने को,
भगवान् हस्तिनापुर आये, पांडव का संदेशा लाये।
‘दो न्याय अगर तो आधा दो, पर, इसमें भी यदि बाधा हो,
तो दे दो केवल पाँच ग्राम, रक्खो अपनी धरती तमाम।
हम वहीं खुशी से खायेंगे, परिजन पर असि न उठायेंगे!
दुर्योधन वह भी दे ना सका, आशिष समाज की ले न सका,
उलटे, हरि को बाँधने चला, जो था असाध्य, साधने चला।
जब नाश मनुज पर छाता है, पहले विवेक मर जाता है।
हरि ने भीषण हुंकार किया, अपना स्वरूप-विस्तार किया,
डगमग-डगमग दिग्गज डोले, भगवान् कुपित होकर बोले-
‘जंजीर बढ़ा कर साध मुझे, हाँ, हाँ दुर्योधन! बाँध मुझे।
यह देख, गगन मुझमें लय है, यह देख, पवन मुझमें लय है,
मुझमें विलीन झंकार सकल, मुझमें लय है संसार सकल।
अमरत्व फूलता है मुझमें, संहार झूलता है मुझमें।
‘उदयाचल मेरा दीप्त भाल, भूमंडल वक्षस्थल विशाल,
भुज परिधि-बन्ध को घेरे हैं, मैनाक-मेरु पग मेरे हैं।
दिपते जो ग्रह नक्षत्र निकर, सब हैं मेरे मुख के अन्दर।
‘दृग हों तो दृश्य अकाण्ड देख, मुझमें सारा ब्रह्माण्ड देख,
चर-अचर जीव, जग, क्षर-अक्षर, नश्वर मनुष्य सुरजाति अमर।
शत कोटि सूर्य, शत कोटि चन्द्र, शत कोटि सरित, सर, सिन्धु मन्द्र।
‘शत कोटि विष्णु, ब्रह्मा, महेश, शत कोटि विष्णु जलपति, धनेश,
शत कोटि रुद्र, शत कोटि काल, शत कोटि दण्डधर लोकपाल।
जञ्जीर बढ़ाकर साध इन्हें, हाँ-हाँ दुर्योधन! बाँध इन्हें।
‘भूलोक, अतल, पाताल देख, गत और अनागत काल देख,
यह देख जगत का आदि-सृजन, यह देख, महाभारत का रण,
मृतकों से पटी हुई भू है, पहचान, कहाँ इसमें तू है।
‘अम्बर में कुन्तल-जाल देख, पद के नीचे पाताल देख,
मुट्ठी में तीनों काल देख, मेरा स्वरूप विकराल देख।
सब जन्म मुझी से पाते हैं, फिर लौट मुझी में आते हैं।
‘जिह्वा से कढ़ती ज्वाल सघन, साँसों में पाता जन्म पवन,
पड़ जाती मेरी दृष्टि जिधर, हँसने लगती है सृष्टि उधर!
मैं जभी मूँदता हूँ लोचन, छा जाता चारों ओर मरण।
‘बाँधने मुझे तो आया है, जंजीर बड़ी क्या लाया है?
यदि मुझे बाँधना चाहे मन, पहले तो बाँध अनन्त गगन।
सूने को साध न सकता है, वह मुझे बाँध कब सकता है?
‘हित-वचन नहीं तूने माना, मैत्री का मूल्य न पहचाना,
तो ले, मैं भी अब जाता हूँ, अन्तिम संकल्प सुनाता हूँ।
याचना नहीं, अब रण होगा, जीवन-जय या कि मरण होगा।
‘टकरायेंगे नक्षत्र-निकर, बरसेगी भू पर वह्नि प्रखर,
फण शेषनाग का डोलेगा, विकराल काल मुँह खोलेगा।
दुर्योधन! रण ऐसा होगा। फिर कभी नहीं जैसा होगा।
‘भाई पर भाई टूटेंगे, विष-बाण बूँद-से छूटेंगे,
वायस-श्रृगाल सुख लूटेंगे, सौभाग्य मनुज के फूटेंगे।
आखिर तू भूशायी होगा, हिंसा का पर, दायी होगा।’
थी सभा सन्न, सब लोग डरे, चुप थे या थे बेहोश पड़े।
केवल दो नर ना अघाते थे, धृतराष्ट्र-विदुर सुख पाते थे।
कर जोड़ खड़े प्रमुदित, निर्भय, दोनों पुकारते थे ‘जय-जय’!

मैं खता हूँ Main Khata Hun

मैं खता हूँ रात भर होता रहा हूँ   इस क्षितिज पर इक सुहागन बन धरा उतरी जो आँगन तोड़कर तारों से इस पर मैं दुआ बोता रहा हूँ ...
