If you want to come in my life, the door is open. If you want to get out of my life, the door is open. But please don’t stand at the door, its blocking the traffic.

समिधा

Samidha

समिधा

चहोदिशी यज्ञ की वेदी के
चौपाल लगाए लोग बैठे
सुधा कलश की आश लगाए ,
टकटकी लगाए, लोग बैठे
कह दो उन्हें कि इस यज्ञ की
समिधा पहले ही स्वाहा हो चुकी है
ज्वाला जो धधकती थी इसमें ,
शनैः शनैः कर अब बुझ चुकी है
समिधा बन अब खुद ही
यज्ञ कुंड में जलना होगा
सरिता हेतु अब हिमगिरि सा
मौन रह, खुद ही गलना होगा

…..अभय…..

समिधा-यज्ञ में आहुति हेतु प्रयोग की जाने वाली लकड़ी

When to speak…Whom to speak

बसंत तो अब बीत चुका है

कुहू तो बस अब मौन रहेगा

क्षितिज पर कालिख बदरी छायी है

सब दादुर अब टर-टर करेगा

                                       ~अभय

 

Spring has gone

Cuckoo will not sing any more

Dark clouds are hovering in the sky

Oh! It’s time for the frogs

                                                                                                 ~Abhay

 

कुहू- कोयल
दादुर- मेढ़क

आप पंक्तियों को खुद से जोड़ पाए तो मैं अपनी सफलता मानूंगा..

Dualism!

This world is nothing but full of duality. The phone which I had bought two years back gave me immense happiness at that time, but now it doesn’t give me the same pleasure because it’s not up to the standards which are prevalent in the market. “Remember the phone is same”. The ecstasy which one may have when being in certain kind of relationships with someone, may turn into a constant source of agony when it falters. “Remember the source of pleasure and pain is the same person.” The moon, the rain, the flowers or any other aspects of nature can make someone fall in love, but for someone who may have separated from his/her love, the same moon, same rain, same flower seems like forest fire.  The water is same everywhere with same Chemical Formula H2O. Parched land of deserts and people living there desperately hankers for it, but the same water has created much havoc in God’s Own Country. “Remember water is same”. In Sanskrit, there is very popular section of verse “Sa Vidya ya Vimuktaye” meaning knowledge is one that liberates. But many a times the knowledge becomes the source of bondage.

Day-Night, Happiness-Sorrow, Cold-Hot, Weak-Strong, Love-Hate, Victory-Defeat, Birth-Death……… Oh the list of duality in this creation is endless. I may not be able to list it down all and frankly speaking it will not be of great use. Through analogy we can easily relate this. What is important, in my view, is to understand this deeply because understanding this nature of the world in quintessential to live peacefully.

Just before the War of Mahabharata, Arjuna was in complete delusion about his action. He pleaded Lord Krishna to enlighten him with transcendental knowledge. Then a song, or Geet in Sanskrit, came in to existence, which later became popularized as Bhagvad Gita. In second chapter of this book, this dualism is discussed in details by Krishna to make Arjuna aware of his duties. Out of many instructions…one goes as…..

“Do thou fight for the sake of fighting, without considering happiness or distress, loss or gain, victory or defeat…….”

Everyone of us is fighting our own battle in our own capacities…Understanding the plot is helps a lot.

Magnificent Morning

So when social media got flooded with the Video in which Rahul Baba seen as saying “This morning I got up at night…”, I thought what have forced him to say this unusual (you may even call it illogical J) sentence. I did not reach to any conclusion, though I have some inkling that he might be referring to the time period what we call as “Brahma Muhrat”, or the time period of early dawn.

Today morning when I woke up (not at night 😉 ) and went for morning walk I tried to capture the nature through my phone.

Behold the beauty…And also let me know which one you liked most…

सशर्त प्रेम …

lb

नेह अगर है मुझसे तो बोलो

तुम क्या क्या कर सकते हो

जान ले सकते किसी की

या अपनी जान दे सकते हो ?

 

निष्ठा को साबित करने को

मैंने भी मन में ठान लिया

निज प्राणाहुति हेतु

तलवार गले पर तान लिया

 

तभी कुटिल मुस्कान लिए

उसने मुझसे बोला

अपने अप्रत्यासित अनुरोध का

राज़ था उसने खोला

 

“मुझे तो बस ये देखना था

तुम किस हद तक जा सकते हो

मेरे लिए क्या तुम अपना

सर्वस्व त्याग कर सकते हो”

 

तलवार गले पर था मेरे

तब भी न कोई टीस थी

निष्ठा को सत्यापित करना पड़ा

ये यातना बड़ी गंभीर थी

…….अभय……

P.S. Tried writing something new in different genre, please let me know does it make sense to you! Thank You.
