Madhushala

Apne yug mein sabko anupam gyaat hui apni haala,

Apne Yug mein sabko adbhut gyaat hua apna pyaala,

Phir bhi vridhon se jab poocha ek yehi uttar paya,

ab na rahe woh peenewale ab na rahi woh Madhushala.

Kitini Jaldi rang badalti hai apna chanchal haala,

Kitni Jaldi Ghisne Lagta haathon mein aakar pyaala,

Kitni Jaldi saki ka aakarshan ghatne lagta hai,

Praat nahin thi vaisi jaisi raat lagi thi madhushala.

Uss pyaale se pyaar mujhe jo dur hatheli se pyaala,

Uss haala ka chaav mujhe jo dur adhar mukh se haala,

Pyaar nahin pa jaane mein hai,Paane ke armanon mein,

Pa jaata tab haay na itni pyaari lagti madhushala.

Beautiful lines from one of my favourite poets Dr Bachchan.What I love about these lines is that they represent the true nature of our mindplay.We exist at multiple levels and the surprise is we ourselves do not know how many.This nature exibits itself very early when you are a child.As soon as you get the cycle it ceases to fire your imagination anymore.In fact you do not even wish to look at it after a couple of months.But sadly fail to recognise this fleeting aspect of our feelings……Kitni jaldi saki ka aakarshan ghatne lagta hai.When you are young you woo a girl and it feels like heaven when you are actually able to be freindly with her.But as the relation ship gets stronger and more intimate you recognize that your desire is diminishing by the minute.Blaming it on your wrong judgement you compromise and start living as if a stranger in your own home and start chasing another rainbow.If only I was the CEO of a MNC ……..If only I was the wealthiest and most influential man …..if only my children would love me…….If only I would die a peaceful death ! And then you ask yourself :

Praapya nahin hai to ho jaati lupt nahin phir kyun haala,

Praapya nahin hain to ho jaata lupt nahin phir kyun pyaala,

Dur na itni himmat haaroon Paas na itni Pa jaoon,

Vyarth mujhe daudati maru main mrig jal bankar madhushala.

    समय की शिला पर

    समय की शिला पर मधुर चित्र कितने
    किसी ने बनाये, किसी ने मिटाये।

    किसी ने लिखी आँसुओं से कहानी
    किसी ने पढ़ा किन्तु दो बूंद पानी
    इसी में गये बीत दिन ज़िन्दगी के
    गयी घुल जवानी, गयी मिट निशानी।
    विकल सिन्धु के साध के मेघ कितने
    धरा ने उठाये, गगन ने गिराये।

    शलभ ने शिखा को सदा ध्येय माना,
    किसी को लगा यह मरण का बहाना,
    शलभ जल न पाया, शलभ मिट न पाया
    तिमिर में उसे पर मिला क्या ठिकाना?
    प्रणय-पंथ पर प्राण के दीप कितने
    मिलन ने जलाये, विरह ने बुझाये।

    भटकती हुई राह में वंचना की
    रुकी श्रांत हो जब लहर चेतना की
    तिमिर-आवरण ज्योति का वर बना तब
    कि टूटी तभी श्रृंखला साधना की।
    नयन-प्राण में रूप के स्वप्न कितने
    निशा ने जगाये, उषा ने सुलाये।

    सुरभि की अनिल-पंख पर मौन भाषा
    उड़ी, वंदना की जगी सुप्त आशा
    तुहिन-बिंदु बनकर बिखर पर गये स्वर
    नहीं बुझ सकी अर्चना की पिपासा।
    किसी के चरण पर वरण-फूल कितने
    लता ने चढ़ाये, लहर ने बहाये।

    – शम्भुनाथ सिंह
