जीवन में अगणित फूल खिले सुख के दिन चार , दुःख की कई रात मिले आशाओं की ऊँची अट्टालिकाएं सजाई नियति को उनमे , कई रास न आयी कुछ ही उनमे आबाद हुए कई टूटे , कई बर्बाद हुए किसे दोष दूँ मैं , किसे दुःख सुनाऊँ जाने मैं कौन सा गीत गाऊँ
स्वयं की खोज में मैंने कईयों को पढ़ा सैकड़ों ज़िंदगियाँ जी ली मैंने मैं सहस्त्रों बार मरा सोचा था कि तुम संग, चिर अन्नंत तक चलोगे मुझे क्या पता था कि तुम पग – पग पर डरोगे किसे मैं जीवन के ये अनुभव सुनाऊँ जाने मैं कौन सा गीत गाऊँ
ये भ्रम में न रहना कि मैंने ये दुःख में लिखा है या अपने आसुंओ को मैंने स्याही चुना है ये उनके लिए हैं जो ज़िंदा लाश नहीं हैं या उनके लिए है जिन्हे अभी खुद पर विश्वास नहीं है अन्नंत आघात हैं मुझपर, फिर भी मुस्कुराऊँ “विपदाओं में टूटकर बिखरो नहीं”, मैं यही गीत गाऊँ
धम से गिरे
ज़ख्म गहरा हुआ
चोट हरा हुआ
पर गिरने का यह पहला
वाक़या तो न था
कई पहले भी लुढ़के
गिरे गर्त में
निर्जीव सा गौण रहे
व्योम सा मौन रहे
पर लड़ते रहे
लोगों की विष भरी
आलोचकों की अगणित
तो तुम जो गिर गए
तो इसमें नया क्या था?
कि अब तुम उठते ही नहीं
कि तन के ज़ख्म भी
जब सूखते हैं
हम उसे कुरेदते नहीं हैं
तो मन के ज़ख्म पर
ये अत्याचार क्यों?
स्मरण रहे कि
जो शिखर पर तुम पहुंचे थे
तब भी पुरुषार्थ लगा था
फिर से पुरुषार्थ लगेगा
कि तुममें जो नैसर्गिक है
वो भला तुमसे कौन लेगा?
कि अब दुर्बलता छोड़ो
कि सब तैयार हैं
सबसे ऊँची चोटी को
बस तेरा इंतज़ार है
कविता का भाव आप लोगों तक पहुंचा हो, तो अपने भाव मुझ तक पहुँचाना न भूलें 🙂

दो परिस्थितयां हैं …एकदम सीधी सी, सुलझी हुई …पहला, जो साहसी होते हैं वो साहस से भरा कार्य करते हैं और दूसरा, साहसिक कार्य करने से ही लोग साहसी कहलाते हैं ..तो हम किसी भी परिस्थिति में क्यों न हों, साहसी बनने का बराबर मौका है…
When someone achieves some extraordinary feat, even when they face a lot of hurdles and pains in their way, in my opinion, those persons motivate us. Isn’t it?
But, it is true that this is not the case for all of us, as many claims that they are self motivated. Many argue that no humans can be their motivation as they are only motivated through divine aspect of the nature.
Have you ever been in any situation in your life where you have felt that you are alone amidst the mob? Yes, No.
Anyway, Skip this question and face a new one.
Have you ever been really alone and secluded, where no one is besides you and the closet person are physically situated miles apart from you? I think most us wouldn’t have experienced this kind of situation.
Six girls decided the fate that they are going to place themselves in the same situation and that too willingly. They are Lieutenant Commander Vartika Joshi , Lieutenant Commander Pratibha Jamwal, Lieutenants P Swathi, Vijaya Devi, Payal Gupta and B Aishwarya.
Do you know them? Yes, No. Doesn’t matter, even I were oblivious of them till recently.
I think they are worth knowing. That is why I decided to write about them.
All of them, whose name I have mentioned, are officers of Indian Navy and they have decided to circumnavigate the earth without any assistance of their male counterpart. This means that all women crew, for the first time in the History of India, have decided to have a complete a circle around the earth in a ship called INS Tarini. They have already started the journey and has reached the first leg of it.
The mission is termed as Navika Sagar Parkirama. This mission was flagged by, first full time female Defence Minister of India, Nirmala Sitaraman.
Few facts about the mission:
INSV Tarini is 55 foot sailing vessel built indigenously in India by M/s Aquarius Shipyard Pvt Ltd, Goa.
The expedition will be covered in five legs, with stop-overs at 4 ports Fremantle (Australia), Lyttleton (New Zealand), Port Stanley (Falklands), and Cape Town (South Africa) for replenishment of ration and repairs as necessary.
It will circumnavigate globe in approximately 165 days and is expected to return to Goa in April 2018.
The ship will promote Make in India, as it is indigenously built.
The crew will check and collect the data for marine pollution.
Many of you would be aware that in ancient time, Indians were not supposed to cross over the oceans, because it was termed as inauspicious. That was the day and this is the day, when only women crew has started a voyage to break the shackles of the idea that women are subordinate to men and they can’t venture alone in life. Imagine the journey, it will not be easy. There will be dark nights, and that too in ocean. There may be no humans in their sight for miles. The sound of the ripples of the ocean may be horrific. Some waves will be huge. They may encounter some pirates in their journey. The ship is not too big and waves and thunderstorm may test their mettle in mid way. But they are prepared for it. They have already faced the waves of prejudice and subjugation by male dominated society, probably their voyage will be easier than the voyage that women has had over the centuries in India. They have decided to lost in joy of the journey, and when they will return back to Indian Coast, probably many Indians will discover a new perspective.
These all girls inspired me, and I hope they will also inspire you!!!
I am sharing a photograph with you, that I have taken few days back, and you all have to do is to guess what exactly it is? Is it a field? Which crop is grown by the farmers in this field? If not, what is it? Take your time, don’t go bottom part, unless you have a guess.
Have you guessed? Yes, No.
Anyways, since I have not introduced any prize money for guessing the correct answer, so even if you didn’t guess, no reason to be saddened. 🙂
Behold the second sets of Pics, which I have taken few months ago, precisely in Spring, and you will be amazed to see the contrast between the two as both the pictures are of same location, may be I have taken it from different position.
These photographs are of Swarnrekha, a major River of Peninsular India, in the mineral rich state of Jharkhand.
Since past two years, I am observing a phenomenon. During summer some part of the river is completely inundated by a weed called Nasturtium/(Jalkumbhi, जलकुम्भी ). Its growth is very fast. Weeds are those undesired plants which gives competition to the intended crop by taking nutrition from the field, which were actually meant for the growth of desired crop. Due to excessive Nasturtium, rivers loses its identity and seems like a pond. Dissolved oxygen in the water gets reduced which is unhealthy for marine ecosystem.
Reasons for its growth: As we all know, unlike the Himalyan Rivers, Peninsular Rivers are ephemeral and mostly depends on rain. So few months after Monsoon and especially in summer the water in the river becomes low and its speed reduces drastically. A huge chunk of industrial and municipal waste is directly discharged in to the river generating an ideal condition for the growth of Nasturtium.
But, then comes the Monsoon, with all its might. Rivers banks are raised. Peninsular Rivers can be very violent and tumultuous in rainy seasons. Flow along with water level increases dramatically. Nasturtium grows only in steady water. Tremendous increase in flow results in washing out all the unintended weeds. Soon the whole river becomes pure and pristine and river gets it real identity.
Parallels in life:
It is said that nature is the greatest teacher. It teaches us the different lessons through its various acts, provided we monitor it carefully.
Some time in our life, our mind is preoccupied with many negative thoughts. They can be compared as the Nasturtium weeds in the river. They drain our energy and prevent us from displaying our real worth or character. Negative thoughts are just like weeds in the field which takes our limited energy meant for our enlightenment and progress.
But, like river receives Monsoonal water to which washes away the unintended weed, we also get many opportunities and instances in our life. River relinquishes the weeds in that force of water and attains its real nature. Are we ready to leave negativities to live in our true potential?
I think we are in better position than the river. Monsoon comes only once in a year, but if we desire, there can be many opportunities in our life to shed all the negativities and drags.
