Naari----no woman no cry


नारी
कोई वस्तु नहीं
कोई अजूबा  नहीं
कोई पहेली नहीं
इंसान है
मनुष्य है
रगो मे खून है
दिल मे धड्कन
धड्कन मे सांस
और साँसों मे आस
इश्वर अर्धनारीश्वर है
पिता पति बेटा और भाई
माता पत्नी बेटी  और  बहन
ये रिश्ते है
श्रीष्टि के लिए अनिवार्य
क्या इन्के बिना चल सक्ता है ये संसार ?
कोई भी रिश्ता अपने आप मे सम्पूर्ण नही
कोई भी व्यक्ति अपने आप मे  पूर्ण नही
जब रचैता हि अर्ध्नारिश्वर है
तो रचना कैसे एकाकी हो ?
पुरुष और नारी एक दूसरे के पूरक है
विश्व रूपी श्रीष्टि के
रक्षक  और पालक है
पुरुष बलवान और नारी सुकोमल
एक कडी धूप  दूजा छाया शीतल
फिर क्यू पुरुष 
अपने बाहु बल के अहंकार मे मदमस्त होकर 
नारी को अबला करार देता है
अपनी मतलबी सहुलियत के लिए
कभी पूजनीय
कभी तिरिस्क्रित खिताब देता है ?
स्त्री को न तो पूजा चाहिए
और न चाहिए उसे तिरस्कार
न तो वो पुरुष से हीन है
न है वो श्रेष्ठ
वो सक्षम है
अपनी रक्षा के लिए
रक्षक बने भक्षक
कि नही उसे दरकार
सदियो से चली आई
कुछ परमपराओ को
वक्त के साथ् बदलना होगा
नारी तू खुद के लिए हथियार  उठा
तुझे इस राह पे चल्ना होगा
नही देता कोई दुसरा सहारा कभी
तुझ्को अपनी तकदीर से लड़ना होगा

five blind men

As the story goes
there were 5 blind men
 and they  came across an Elephant '
The one who caught hold of the trunk
said the elephant is  like a snake  slightly drunk ..

The  other got entangled in the tail
and said "I agree it is , a snake it is a snake".

The third when he felt both the ears
thought that the elephant  was a winnowing plate
which cleaned enough  grains to last enough years
 .
and thought  he should buy one for him and his mate.

The 4th sat on the elephant,s back
and wondered if it was a biiiig tarmac?
 with slippery edges accident prone
as he slipped down with a groan.

the 5th wondered out aloud
as if he had uncovered a hidden shroud
"its a tree-its a tree
this is one and there are more three"


So friends this is the story of every land
you perceive 'IT' to be
as to you IT seems
to some its heaven
to some its nil
to some  its a land
where his ancestors lived

Home is where the hearth is
and country is where the Heart is .

some say its my   motherland
For some it is their father
some say they are for it concerned
some find much left to desire.

But ultimately
everyone compares
and hopes it to excel
so that they they may be proud to say
this is where they and theirs had  dwelt.

the bonds of blood ,are thicker than water
 the presence  of the genes so strong.
every word ---.anger,concern, love and respect
say that this is where they still belong.

His DNA will bring him home, however far may one run away.
at dusk he wants to find a way ,to come back to his roots
and breathe the air of his land,before he breathes his last
 and his soul fly's away on the wings of a big curlew.

WHAT I WANT TO GIFT MY MOTHERLAND ?

.     

                 

WHAT I WANT TO GIFT MY MOTHERLAND ?


Just one thing

A PROMISE.


A promise to be worthy of being called a HUMAN BEING.

Because that is the one attribute which we have lost--the trait of humanity.'the traits of being human'.


Ugh! I am so ashamed of myself to have stooped so low that I can't face GOD ---what right have I to live in HIS world.
 He who is omnipresent.

His eyes follow me --HE smiles at me a sad beseeching smile --a pleading smile-------and I look away .

He asks me ---"I called you my greatest creation!!!
Did I fail in some way in giving you love and affection?
Did I fail in coming up to your expectations as a parent?"

"Tell me my child and I will rectify my mistakes --ask me for that which I denied you -and I will fulfill your desires--Please forgive me for my failures.

"But please live up to your reputation DON'T please  DON'T let my other creations ridicule me"


The agony the shame in GOD's pleadings is so obvious.
Can we deny any one of these charges?
NO.

So I pledge to my motherland that I will now become a human in deeds----and not a two legged beast.

My country needs peace ,harmony.happiness and this can be achieved only by HUMANITARIAN behavior  no amount of literacy will bring peace until  their is empathy in the feelings until our conscience can empathize with the miseries of our fellow Humans.

We have to forego this attitude of ours the OSTRICH syndrome.
We have to realize that All is not well with the world.
Materialism will not bring us riches.
Money is not everything---Let us recall that fable,the story of MIDAS Did he get Happiness??

Its for us to realize that everything comes full circle If we spread unhappiness, greed, selfishness then we are not going to be spared them .A time will come when we will have to pay for our misdeeds.
MIDAS in his greed asked God for the gift of the miracle-touch.When he touched his daughter AND she turned into gold he realized that happiness for him was his daughter not a golden statue. He of course was just a character in a story and God gave him back his daughter on seeing his repentance.

BUT we will not be that lucky.

We are mere mortals who will be punished for our deeds---History has already shared with us many stories and anecdotes for us learn our lessons from .Now no more .
History wants to add new chapters to its books what they will be, is for us to decide.

Is it going to be GOLDEN HISTORY OF INDIA.
OR Will the book be titled INDIA BACK TO THE DARK AGES.

ITS high time we woke up .Woke up to the needs of the poor.
woke up to the needs of our fellow countrymen and women. Like I said the ostrich syndrome is not the answer , we should not wait for our own children to turn into golden statues and then pray to GOD for the water of salvation, WE should stop that situation from arising.

Its time we realized that the words ' THE WHOLE WORLD IS A FAMILY' is not just a slogan the whole world is actually a family sooner or later everything does boomerang whether it be a smile or it be a frown. Every thing does have its repercussions its effects both bad and good on all the members of the family.

My motherland ; has reached that pathetic stage where she has become a helpless mother who is unable to control her prodigal children .

Those children who she once thought would be her strength are fighting among themselves in the name of religion ,language, property and have no apprehensions about killing their own flesh and blood they are not ashamed of aborting the girl child they are not ashamed of burning brides their greed has killed their conscience .They are killing the innocent just for a few pieces of gold .

I am not Santa Claus had I been one I would have gifted my motherland and also this world the gift of tolerance, of love, of gratitude ,of understanding OF HUMANITY .

But being a daughter of this my motherland I can only ask her to forgive me and my fellow human beings the misdeeds committed by us .

AND I promise to her that I together with my other fellow countrymen will one day give her back the days of her glory and make her proud of her children .

MAY GOD BLESS US AND GIVE US THE STRENGTH TO FULFILL THIS OUR PROMISE.

crime against women





PEOPLE

            POLITICIANS   
            COLUMNISTS
                 EDITORS
                 SOCIAL REFORMERS   are all asking the same questions

WHY are women not safe ? why is crime against women constantly on the increase?

COMMITIES are being set up  to conduct studies  and find the reason behind this.They talk about making laws stricter ,  the latest is to make molestation a non bailable crime" Well this is a positive approach and hence welcome"  but the real solution to this problem is education{not literacy}  and above all an  individuals own "conscience".No problem can ever be tackled unless the cry is from within.To put it in a lighter vein "  you can take a horse to the river but you cannot make him drink." Similarly these crimes cannot be stopped untill the criminal realises what he has done !! HE  should know that what he is doing is worse than murder.He is insulting the existence of a fellow human being.Does he realise the repercursions?the humiliation, the insults,the feeling of helplessness the indignity a woman faces.Just imagine a crime where its the victim who is ashamed  and the culprit goes about strutting like a proud peocock!!.
        
                                                             In this fake society of ours which does not tire  from paying obeiyance to mother DURGA, the man does not understand MA DURGA is a woman  MA SARASWATI  is a woman KALI and the most favourite LAKSHMI  are  women.Is a woman worthy of  being  worshipped only if she is made of stone  not if she is made flesh and blood.!!

                                                      This is a burning issue which can be discussed incessently  but aren't we ashamed to be discussing it even in this 21st century.The topic is such that it will never cease to continue because it touches on very sensitive issues and if we talk about it it will go on and on and on.for eg may I ask who are these keepers of society who decide  the dress code for girls and women?  Leave women alone   let them breathe consider them your 'other half'  if not 'better half'  let the other half live the way its other half lives.

                                             Frankly this is not a fight between men and women it is a fight between the frustrated and the achievers.Frustrated people are failures in life and resort to bullying  them, who ,they think are weak...This groupof bullies includes both   men as well as women. The only way they can
be controlled is by exposing them remember that nursery rhyme!


GEORGY PORGY PUDDING AND PIE
KISSED THE GIRLS AND MADE THEM CRY
WHEN THE BOYS CAME OUT TO PLAY
GEORGY PORGY RAN AWAY.


So in order to control this evil which exists from time immemorial let us follow the method used then ;i.e., let the good boys come out to play and  catch and expose the hooligans like the two photographers did on the  night of 31st dec 2007 in MUMBAI  and the georgy porgys will surrender.
These bullies are not only males ,but females too are a very active member of this group  who do you think plays the lead role in cases of female foeticide,  bride burning   and dowry deaths etc? the MATRIARCH  without doubt.
                      So the only way to weed out this problem is   to educate the society and let them see the heniousness of this crime show it to them in a way which  will sadden or terrorise them. Women are indebted to men like Raja Ram Mohan Roy   or Mahatma Jyotiba Phule and request our 'better halves'! to imbibe their virtues we would be eternally gratefull to you.And this world will be rid of an unnecessary evil giving us more time to solve bigger problems of humanity  benefitting  the globe more.

                                 A  man and a woman are made by God to compliment each other  neither is in any way inferior to the other.They have different roles to play and should be respected for that .Just as every Human  being should be respected irrespective of  caste , creed , colour ,occupation or gender

sapne merey apne


              

सपने है ये सपने मेरे 
बुनती इनको मै साँझ सवेरे 
वक़्त मिले तब खो जाती हूँ 
दर्द उठे तब रो जाती हूँ 
इन सपनो में प्यार बसा है 
मेरा इक संसार बसा है 

हर सपना मेरा है अपना 
नहीं पराया हर कोई अपना 
इन अपनों को  बांध  लू खुद से 
हर अपने को जोड़ लूं दिल से 
किसी अपने को खोने न दू 
सपने में भी रोने न दू 

जाने कब ये रिश्ता जोड़ा 
कब सपनो  म इन्हें पिरोया 
अब तो ऐसी डोर बांध गयी 
हर ख्वाहिश  इक मोड़ बन गयी 
दिल से दिल का है ये सपना 
उम्र बढ़ी  है साथ बढ़ा है 
खुद पे इक विश्वास बढा है 

क्या ये सपना है 
उनका भी 
जो रहते है 
दिल में मेरे 

कोई बता दे कह दे उनसे 
सपनो की दुनिया है मेरी 
जितनी भी हो रात अँधेरी 
आंधी हो या तूफ़ान आये 
राह कभी वो भुला न पाए 
बंद कर ली है पलके मैंने 
कोई उनको कभी चुरा न पाए 

सपनो में जो बस जाते है 
अपने वो ही कहलाते है 
आँखे देखती है उनको ही 
कभी खुली रह कभी मूंदी ही 




SAPNE  hain  Ye  sapne  mere 
         Bunti   inko  mai , saanjh  saverey

           Waqt milei tab kho jaati hoon
            Dard utthe tab ro jaati hoon
            In sapno mei pyar basaa hai 
             Mera ik sansar basaa hai.

           Har sapna mera hai apna
            Nahi paraaya ,har koi apna.
           In apno ko baandh loon khud se,
            Har apne ko jod  loon dil se.
           Sapne mein bhi roney na doon,
            Kisi apne koh khoney na doon.
   
           Jaane kab ye rishta joda !
            kab sapno may inhe piroya!!
            Ab toh aisee dor bandh gayi,
            Har khwahish ik moad ban gayee.
            Dil si dil ka hai yeh sapna,
            Umra badhi toh saath badhaa hai
            Khud pe ik vishwas badhaa hai.

            Kya yeh sapna hai unka bhi??
             Joh rahte hai dil mein mere.?
          
           Koi bataa de, kah de unse,
             Sapno ki duniya hai meri
                      Kitni bhi ho raat andheri,
             Aandhi ho ya toofaan aaye
             Rah kabhi woh bhula na payein.
             Bund kar li hain palke maine
              kabhi unko koi chura na paye.
Sapno mein jo bas jaate hain
                                          Apne woh hi kahlaate hai
                                         aankhe dekhti hai unko hi
                                          kabhi khuli rah ;kabhi moondi hi.

Aur aap sochte hai Houswife Banna easy hai?

A SCENE 

FROM A TV SERIAL ,--- A MOVIE
,---- A NOVEL ----A HOME !!!

FROM ---EITHER ---HEMISPHERE-- IN--- ANY ---ERA 

T he sun rises to be greeted by the woman of the house beautiful after a bath ,hair washed with  perfumed shampoo, scented water or sandalwood ( according to the era which the episode is set in )---in short she is smelling beautiful and smiling beautifully. 

The sun smiles and blesses the home where the woman gets up before sunrise---and the blessings would be many fold if she is either playing the sitar or singing a bhajan --or has just finished her Namaaz and is seen keeping away the holy book----or is in the chappel finishing her prayers .


SHE now will wish the SUN good morning .and rush into the kitchen . 
emerging with hot cups of tea and coffee for the members of the family .and they in turn will give her smiles and a benevolent look.

Oh yes!!! and the gods bless the home which is swept every morning by the lady  of the house--- before the servants do. 

all throughout the day she is busy with all kinds of work but the media (visual,written) ,stories , ballads all project her as fresh and smiling ,.. 
there are manufacturers   playing on her psyche  telling her through advts how helpfull their   gadgets will be to her in executing her duties more effeciently and how they would   help her to take on added responsibilities --- and she wants to play superwoman ---naturally!!! the milk of human kindness and love for her loved ones is her ---identity.


Now the same scene , same place, same time , same era , same hemispheres only GENDER is different ---the male ---he is projected as a drunkard, wife beater, tyrant , gambler rogue in short a good for nothing .
Now the smart idea behind all this ---- society in general and the woman in particular become so conditioned that they unconsciously associate  

picture No 1. ---
to be their lot --she thinks she has to be sweetly smiling and sweet smelling always ,the epitome of all the above mentioned  virtues ---and she achieves all this too ---with pangs of guilt in case of a minor failure ;may be as minor as disheveled hair. 

----and she faces ostracism if she is unable to fulfill any of these virtues----in case of domestic violence too she is expected to smile and bear --smile and sacrifice --smile and consider herself privileged . 
And the men are supposed to be the sufferers if their mate or even mom fails to fulfill any of the above qualities. 


whereas PICTURE NO 2 HELPS MEN IN EVERY WAY --the womenfolk and the society again are conditioned to accept men as epitome of all those vices  --- and even if "one" of these vices is absent in the men around them they consider it a blessing ---its like
1,}what if he drinks atleast he doesn't beat me. 
2) what if he beats me he hasn't brought the other woman home
3) what if he has brought the other woman home he is not throwing me out. 
    etc and etc .

now isn't that smart ??? 

No Doubt men rule the world -----far sightedness at its best . 

This has been happening since the days of the GODS--and to add to all the miseries they call us the FAIRER SEX and we become the best targets for their fairness cream industry . 

Slim is beautiful so we are constantly dieting ---helping the family budget remain slim. 

they like us to buy jewelry and look beautiful ----another ploy of investment in gold and silver --will help later on in times of need ---naturally we wont be lacking in contributing to the family's hour of need.. 


Then there are lovely songs written epitomizing and euologising womanhood , motherhood . ---and we bask in their glory .???

POETIC JUSTICE

We deserve what they dish out for us --and ---they deserve what we dish out for them ----HAHAHA .  


AND WE LOVE THEM ALL THE MORE FOR ALL THIS 

PS---THIS BLOG IS A FUN BLOG---NOTHING SERIOUS  ---

on this earth land.
