अनजानी राहे

वक़्त गुज़रता है साथी बदलते है इन अनजानी राहो पर रोज नए राही मिलते है।

कल तक जो साथ रहा आज बेशक वो साथ नहीं लेकिन फिर भी जीवन में हँसने के पल मिलते है।

हर शक़्क़शियत में कुछ बात अलग होती है, गौर से देखो तो हर दिल के समंदर की गहराई अलग होती है।।

कुछ सपने लग होते है कुछ जज़्बात अलग होते है, हर इंसान के कहे हुए अलफ़ाज़ अलग होते है।

ज़रूरी नहीं हर बात कही ही जाए क्यूंकि अक्सर कही बात अलग होती है तो कही अंदाज़े बयान अलग होता है।

आँखों में चमकते ख्वाब देखना तो मुनासिब है मगर, उन नयनो में छिपे दर्द को पढ़ा जाए तो असलियत कुछ और होती है।

नक़ाब ओढ़ कर चलते है इस भीड़ में सब, शकले तो सब एक सी पर दास्तां अलग होती है।

वक़्त मिले तो कभी गौर करना हर चहरे पर, हर चहरे में कोई बात अलग होती है।

कोई कह के भी कुछ ना कह पाया तो किसी की आँखे ही क़यामत का सबूत होती है।

पत्थर की दीवारों में क्यों ढूंढे इंसान जीवन अपना, जंगल में जीना सीखे तो बात अलग होती है, जहां हर दिन नया और आने वाली हर रात अलग होती है।

खुदा ने इंसान को बनाया क्या सोच के था, उस की दी हुई नियामतों में ना कमी कभी कोई होती है।

ये इंसान ही है जिसने उसे भी बाँट दिया, ये कह कर की हर खुदा अलग है और उस की जगह अलग होती है।

सफर में गुज़री वो रात अलग होती है, अंधियारी राहो को रोशन करती उस चाँदनी की बात अलग होती है, यूँ तो बारिश का कोई मोल नहीं पर सूखी माटी पर पड़ी वो पहली बूँद की मिठास अलग होती है।

सपने तो सब के है इस जहां में, पर उन नन्ही आँखों के ख्वाबो की बात अलग होती है।

रंग अलग अलग है इस दुनिया के, उन रंगों को देखने वाली हर नज़र अलग होती है।

कही सपने अलग होते है, कही इंसान अलग होते है, कही बाते अलग होती है तो कही सौगाते अलग होती है।

ना कोई गलत ना कोई सही यहाँ, इस दुनियां में तो बस सब के पैमाने अलग होते है।।

The Art of Being Stupid

It’s a world of Newtons and Einsteins, it’s a place where intelligence is worshiped above all human traits. Those who are endowed with it have a higher place in the society and always looked up to. It’s a world of the rising sun and people with big ambitions. Amidst all this intelligence world has lost the art of stupidity, which was once found in abundance.

Since the childhood every child is taught to be intelligent or at least try to be one. More often then not our system discourage mistakes and tries to draw a perfect path for upbringing of kids. we are never taught to be stupid and curious which actually overpower the real human instincts of being experimental. It was only curious nature which has been the catalyst of many great discoveries. There is no fun in learning without trying things out of curiosity though which is often termed as stupidity initially. Society always disapproves the ways which are not by the book or often way beyond the thinking capability of their era. Many great scientists and thinkers faced the same when they chose not to be slaves of the ancient ways. It’s the art of stupidity which has sailed world through tough times, a stupid solider laid down his life for the sake of those who are unknown to him. It’s only stupidity which adds spice to life, it’s only a stupid lover who travels across the world just to have a look at his beloved. And it’s only love that has made world to stick around.

Today scenario is such that being stupid is a lost art in this world of intellectuals. Perhaps we are so blinded by glory that we have completely forgotten the fun of being childish. We must never forget one great saying that to be old and wise one must be first young and stupid. Stay stupid stay young!!

ये आवारगी

ये आवारगी ना  अपने किसी काम आई , वक़्त ही गवाया हमने और हाथ में बस ख़ाक ही पाई|
यूँ तो सफर मीलों का किया पर मंज़िल कोसो दूर ही नज़र आई| ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी काम आई ||

तज़ुर्बा बहुत किया हमने पर उस की कीमत अपने वक़्त से ही चुकाई|
अल्फाज़ो में पिरो कर बहुत बार एक कहानी हमने बनाई, पर अक्सर वो कहानी उन बिखरे पन्नो में अधूरी ही पाई| ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी काम आई||

ज़ंज़ीरो में बंधे जानवर से ज्यादा बेबसी खुले आसमान के परिंदो में पाई|
पत्थर की दीवारों से ज्यादा दिखी लोगो के ज़ेहन के भीतर तन्हाई|| ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी काम आई||

लाखो की भीड़ में भी हर आँख में दिखी एक अलग सी तन्हाई, सपनो का कतल कर के ना जाने दुनिया ने कोनसी मंज़िल है पाई || ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी काम आई||

रोज मासूमियत का सौदा करते यूँ ज़िम्मेदारी हमें नज़र आई , भूखे तन को हड्डियों तक नोचती ज़रूरतों की असलियत भी सामने पाई | ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी भी काम आई||

सिक्कों पर नाचती दुनिया की असलियत भी यूँ सामने आई, आदर्शो को बेंच कर लोगो ने खूब यहाँ वह वाही पाई | ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी भी काम आई ||

गुज़र बसर करने को रोज लड़ती हमने अक्सर ज़िन्दगी पाई, थक हार कर बैठी हमने देखी अँधेरे में सच्चाई की वो परछाई| ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी भी काम आई||

बचपन के खेलो में जवानी की छाप हमें रोज दी यूँ दिखाई, उम्र से आगे बढ़ कर क्या पाया दुनिया ने ये बात हमने ना ज़रा भी समझ आई| ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी काम आई||

प्रेम को हमने महफ़िलो में यूँ बिकते देखा,चंद नोटों की बूख में खूबसूरती मिटटी में मिली रोज़ नज़र आई| जीवन की आपाधापी में तड़पती ज़िन्दगी नज़र आई| ये आवारगी बा अपने किसी भी काम आई||

मंज़िल की तलाश में पथिक यु तड़पते दिए दिखाई,मानो जीवन और मृत्यु की वही हो आखरी लड़ाई|
क्षणिक लाभ के हेतु एक दूसरे का गला घोंटते सारी दुनिया दी दिखाई| ये आवारगी ना अपने किसी भी काम आई||

कल्पना के परे संसार की असलियत यूँ नज़र आई, मानो पर्दो के पीछे की वास्तविक प्रतिमा समकक्श हो चली आई| आखिर ये आवारगी कुछ तो हमारे काम आई,अन्यथा वक़्त ही गवाया था हमने और हाथ में बस ख़ाक ही थी पाई||

The Life of Sadhus

The facts which are hidden or less known often create an aura of suspension around them which entice people of curious nature. They often travel a long way just to discover the hidden truth and get enlighten by confronting the reality. These are the people who choose a road which is less traveled by, their entire existence depends on the truth they wish to face. It is easy when one wish to unveil the truth on the basis of evidence but it gets tougher to get enlightened when one starts chasing the truth which is obvious. Such is the life of sages who virtually ignore their existence for this world to attain spiritual delight.

The divine ignorance to the materialism that the world offers allows them to attain a state of bliss and self actualization. They rise above the people who have contrasting faiths and beliefs by accepting the reality of oneness. Sadhus coexist with the world but they differ all together in their vision, their curiosity to seek depths of spiritualism allows them to have the luxury to see things differently. We all are concerned about so many things like food, house, money and the list goes on whereas when one looks at things from there perspective the whole scenario changes dynamically. The keepers of materialism fail to entice you and then you realize the real face of the world is completely different from your perception.

It is easy to coexist with the world and being in spiritual bliss as it’s just matter of difference in vision. As rightly said in the Geeta that you are required to be at your place and perform your duties while accepting the fact of being one with the nature. It’s the course of the time that will tell your fate but it’s the actions you perform will decide your place. It is often presumed that meditation is done by closing of eyes getting disconnected from the world but the actual meditation happen by being connected to the world and inner self simultaneously, where one can see beyond the things and accept the world with an open heart. Meager realization of this simple fact can change the course and help one attain mental peace with spiritual bliss.

Acute Loneliness

“People people every where but not a single one to talk.” This is the reality of our digital world now a days. One can often find himself alone in this ever expending society. The crowd is increasing but the connection is constantly decreasing. The real conversation is losing to the virtual one, the world seems to be diverting from the path and traveling a different one all together .

He created the world with a vision of creating a place where all being will live with love and prosperity. Though at some level we have been successful in attaining prosperity but we are definitely losing on the part of love. People have no real friends but they chase for friends on virtual platforms. We are so engrossed in our lives that we bother less about having a real conversation. Table discussions have been replaced by group discussions happening on our cellphones. And then there are people in this world who go unnoticed, ignored because of the lack of human interaction and communication. The cases of depression and low self esteem have increased and the only reason behind that is the solitude one suffers behind these virtual walls. The tenderness of the touch of the fingertips have lost to constant clicking sounds. Our ignorance is costing lives of the people, as a few who are not good at socializing doesn’t even get a chance to socialize either. A fear of acute loneliness surround everyone and there comes the urge of being connected always. Self love has turned into narcissism, we have lost the art of appreciation somewhere in the journey of self love.

This world is a very beautiful place and it would be even better if we can stay in love with it. There is nothing that can replace a drink with an old friend. The real world is outside the parameter of the virtual one. It’s never too late to realize and connect with the world, as the soul of the world lies in its creation.

More I look at you more I fall in love with you.

With open hands I stand at horizon with no end.

The silence of the night is deafening to the heights, more I listen to it more I fall in love with you.

You are so majestic that one can hardly avoid, oh ! My beautiful world more I look at you more I fall in love with you!!

The Journey Through Time

The phase of the mind changes as he travels through the time.

Years went by in the blink of an eye, all he could do is to follow the course and travel through the time.

Smiles turned into tears, fears turned into strengths, strengths weakened him up as he traveled through the time.

All he loved turned into ashes, the life rose from the ashes as a Phoenix in the sky and all he could do is watch and travel through the time.

All who stood by him changed the side, he was left alone to stay and fight. All he could do is watch and hold on tight.

His hunger for more reached to its peak where he stands alone with no one to speak, and all he could do is to follow the course and travel through the time.

He crawled for years and ran for a few, he is now old and can no more push it through.
He lost it all in the humdrum of life, now he is in the bed left with no will to fight .

She smiled at him with the vengeance in her eyes and all he could do is lie helpless and sorry for what he did to her during the journey through the time.

He was so cold and left with no life then he realized that his journey has ended and he had nothing to fight.

Then it struck him that what he has done? He got a life and he lived it for none!! The time is over ,he can not travel any longer and he wished to change the whole journey all together.

The phase of the mind changes as he travels through the time and in the end what matters is how he lived , not for how much time!!

World and Its Religious Extremism

“Religion” a word which is used more often then ever now a days. Though the reasons are not justified most of the times. When the God created this earth he had nothing in his mind except to create a world where everyone lives in harmony and peace. We can confidently say that everything is present here except harmony and peace. Then came the religion which divided humans in communities with similar faiths and believes.

Nobody knows the actual origin of the concept of religion though everyone has their own story about it. Prime focus of religion was to bring people with similar faiths together and unite them to diminish  boundaries among them. Though this focus seems to have diverted from its main course and now world is on a different journey all together. Humans have been endowed with a developed brain and all it has done is more harm then good. We have waged wars on the people of our own just because of the difference in faiths or the difference in religious practices. It seems that we have forgotten the real journey of being alive is to make life easier for the people around. Despite we are just following the path of a distorted vision which is hampering the founding thoughts of a religion. This world seems so much concerned about the preaching of some ancient scriptures which are perhaps the outcome of some vivid visions.

The perception of a religion varies from person to person, it actually depends on the capability of understanding of that particular individual. But still we blindly follow the path shown by an individual to seek our spiritual bliss. It is never suggested in any religion to disrespect or demean the other, though we often try to prove ours superior to others. The concept which evolved years ago with a vision of removing boundaries, have now poisoned the minds of people creating havoc and insecurity in this world. Death is not scary but the death of humanity is what puts the world at danger.

The nature tries to keep the world together , we must not let our religious extremism tear it apart. It’s a home for million’s of species and we have no right to destroy this world just because of the difference in the thoughts or way of looking at things. The real spiritual journey will start only when we learn to accept the world as it is rather then trying to make it as we ourselves are. A global vision and an open mindset is all what we need to maintain the peace and harmony that the God has always wanted.
