मेरे देश में अब भी कृषक

भूखे पेट सोता है

हत्यारे कर्ज के बोझ तले वह

बिलख बिलख कर रोता है 


सरकारें आती हैं

सरकारें जाती हैं

उनकी वयथा फिर भी

जस की तस रह जाती हैं


हमे शर्म नहीं क्यों आता जब

खुद को हम कृषि प्रधान देश कहते हैं

कृषकों के नाम पर  राजनीति करके

नेता केवल अपनी जेब भरते हैं


डॉक्टर का बेटा डॉक्टर बनेगा

इंजीनियर का बेटा खुद को इंजीनियर कहेगा

पर कृषकों की यही व्यथा रही तो

देश में न कोई भूमिपुत्र बचेगा


तो क्या सॉफ्टवेयर हम खायेंगे ? 

या बढ़ते हुए GDP का गुण जाएंगे ? 

या डेवलपिंग कंट्री के तमगे से  

खुद को सांत्वना देते रह जायेंगे




Propagate the Good

I recently observed a phenomenon that people like to propagate the ideology which they are professing, practicing and have allegiance to it.

From Capitalism to Socialism, from Autocracy to Democracy, from Secularism to Communalism, from Barbarism/Terrorism to Humanism, from Atheist to Theist and from Lover to Hater, one desire is common in all these groups that they want to increase their number.

Purpose behind mounting the number, in my view, is that they feel safe, secure and superior with like-minded people. We have heard from one of our ancient scripture/ Upanishad that “Satyamev Jayate” means “Truth alone Triumph”, but now this believe is only used for the decorative purposes and have taken a back seat as “Truth” is being adjudicated by the majority’s view.

Anyway, purpose of my writing is that, I believe that whatever good we are doing we should continue but proliferate, disseminate and transmit it to the other people. If we don’t broadcast it, surely negative vibes and action will occupy the vacuum.

If  peace will not be propagated, agitation will fill the void.
