LOST AND FOUND

In the solitude....
with only YOU
lost somewhere in crowd...
among the lot
to whom to trust I doubt...
faces all around
known and unknown...
relations do bound
still unfamiliar they sound...
lost in the crowd....
to THEE I bound....

"आया है अकेला, जायेगा अकेला"



पर्दा ही ठीक है
गुज़र जाने दो अनजाने में 
गहरी नींद में सपने की तरह 
 असमर्थ हूँ सामना करने में 
उस  भयावह सच का 

जानता हूँ उस  सच को 
पर रहने दो उसे 
अहम्  की परतों तले 
झूठी ही सही,हंसी 
हंस  तो लेता हूँ 
झूठा ही सही सहारा 
बेफिक्र  तो हूँ 

क्यूँ आ  जाते हो फिर 2
उधेढ़ने परत 2
कर के आत्मा के तार 2
उस  भयावह सच को 
उजागर कर देते हो बार 2

जानता हूँ, 
ऑंखें बंद करने से कुछ  न  होगा 
और भी भयावह हो जायेगा 
बंद आँखों में वह दृश्य 
और भी पारदर्शी हो जायेगा 
जब देखेगा इसे अंतर्मन 

क्या थाम  लोगे मुझे 
जब वो परतें हटेंगी 
वो आधार  हिलेगा 
जो था ही नहीं 
वो सपना टूटेगा 
अस्तित्व  जिसका 
था ही नहीं 

सच  सामने होगा 
उस  प्रलय  की रात 
आओगे? थामोगे मेरा हाथ ?
जीवनभर जैसे दिया साथ 
चलोगे संग  मेरे कालान्त?

नहीं 
अतः 
हट जाने दो पर्दा 
हो जाने दो रौशनी 
हटने दो अन्धकार 
उठने दो स्वयं से 
अपनी ही धरती का आधार 
हो जाने दो अभी 
इस  सच  से अभिभूत 
"आया है अकेला "
"जायेगा अकेला"
ॐ

What if the Time Rewinds......

What if the time could be wound
Again we would have been bound
To commit ourselves new mistakes
Afterall to err is humane

Even if the time could rewind
Never would rest the human mind
Never would he find any solace
Would find some new desire to chase

A BLISSFUL RELATIONSHIP!

"Relationship based on mutual need brings only conflict. However interdependent we are on each other, we are using each other for a purpose, for an end. With an end in view, relationship is not. You may use me and I may use you. In this usage, we lose contact. A society based on mutual usage is the foundation of violence. When we use another, we have only the picture of the end to be gained. The end, the gain, prevents relationship, communion. In the usage of another, however gratifying and comforting it may be, there is always fear. To avoid this fear, we must possess. From this possession there arises envy, suspicion and constant conflict. Such a relationship can never bring about happiness.

A society whose structure is based on mere need, whether physiological or psychological, must breed conflict, confusion and misery. Society is the projection of yourself in relation with another, in which the need and the use are predominant. When you use another for your need, physically or psychologically, in actuality there is no relationship at all; you really have no contact with the other, no communion with the other. How can you have communion with the other, when the other is used as a piece of furniture, for your convenience and comfort? So, it is essential to understand the significance of relationship in daily life"
The above quote compelled me to think about the most important relationship in our life called 'marriage'. True, the marriage is supposed to be a naturally occurring event in our life but we have made it the most artificial phenomenon in the process of searching the soul mate. Is it not like that soul mate just appears before you while traveling on the journey of life and you just cannot search him/her? What you search out is your business partner and not the soul mate. During the search you weigh out all the pros and cons on the basis whether the relationship is going to benefit you in the aspects, which you think are very important in your life. when a relationship is based on expectations it cannot even be called friendship, let alone marriage. Marriage means merging into one. Then only can it be a bliss. No give and take! Which can happen only on a natural course which the society has named as 'love marriage'.
The rituals reinforce the concept of retaining identities all the more. Rarely I have seen that the ritual of marriage to be performed as spiritual and blissful event. It has just become the stage to flaunt money power by groom's and bride's side both. Dowry and expensive gifts to relatives of the groom are seen as the symbol of respect ought to be shown by bride's side for the groom's side. All this amount to widen their identities rather than merging them. The mutual love and respect is lost somewhere during the whole process if it becomes compulsion. What can you expect out of such long term relationship? Conflicts, confusions and miseries!
