सागर-सा-प्यार पर शब्दाभाव

by Dev B

वो थोड़ी देर से घर आने पर ,
उनका मुझे घर से निकालना |
वो मुझे चोट खरोच आने पर,
उनका घर सर पर उठा लेना |
वो दोपहर धुप में मेरे खेलने पर,
गुस्से में “कपिल देव” संबोधन |
वो खेल में मुझे चोट लगने पर,
प्यार से “क्रिकेट किट” प्रलोभन |
वो वारिश में मेरे भींगने पर,
उनका डाटना और धमकाना |
वो मेरी तबियत खराब होने पर,
उनका पूरी पुरी रात जागना |
वो मुझसे नाराज होने पर,
उनका रूठना और न बोलना |
वो मेरे आस पास न होने पर,
उनका “नाटु भाई” पुकारना |
वो सड़क किनारे खाने पर,
उनका डाटना और फटकारना
वो उनका रोज़ घर आने पर,
कुछ न कुछ मेरे लिए लाना |
वो मेरे पढ़ाई न करने पर ,
उनकी “डांट की जन्म-घुटी”|
वो मेरी रिजल्ट की तारीख पर,
उनकी व्यग्रता और अधीरता|
वो हर रोज़ सुबह और रात,
उनका मेरे साथ ही खाना |
वो नए शहर को मेरा जाना और
मेरी याद में उनका आंशु बहाना |
वो नौकरी करने की सोच पर,
उनका आगे पढने को कहना |
वो मेरी हरेक जॉब ऑफर पर,
उनका मंदिर-मस्जिद-गुरुद्वारा जाना |
वो विदेश जाने की खबर पर,
उनका मुझे न जाने को कहना |
वो मेरे वहां परदेश में होने पर,
उनका पूरी रात फ़ोन को निहारना |
वो एक दिन मुझसे बात न होने पर ,
उनका मुझसे बार बार नाराज़ होना |
वो कई सालों से शाम ८ बजने पर ,
उनका छोटा-सा फ़ोन कॉल आना |
मेरे आस पास सब कुछ बदल रहा है पर,
उनके भावनाओ का कभी नहीं बदलना|
उनका सागर-सा-प्यार पर शब्दाभाव,
“मेरा होना” ही उनका सर्वश होना|

Just found above incomplete and amateur writing, on the last page of one of my oldest surviving office notebook. Initially I thought to rewrite it but that will change the emotions and soul of this writing. Finally posting this amateur writing without making much change. Let’s guess – It is dedicated to whom? 🙂

My chat with GOD

by Dev B

What would you do, if on one fine day, when you were in the middle of online conversation with your best friend, some stranger pings you. While you would normally ignore such pings you seem to be unsure of what you should do with this one, because this person isn’t like any other normal stranger.

This time you were interrupted by someone who no one on this planet has ever seen or met, but he/she still commands great respect and billions of people across the globe worship him/her. You’ve probably guessed it by now, the stranger who comes online is none other than God himself. His conversation with you starts off in such a manner that you have no choice but continue the chat and soon enough the chat window between you and him is all that you can see. What exactly would be the content of such a chat, let’s find out :

God :  Hello. you called me

I, Me, Myself(IMM) :  Called you ? No, who is this ?
God: This is God. I heard your prayers . So i thought i’ll chat with you.

IMM: sure, I pray. Just makes me feel good. Actually, am busy now. In the midst of something.
God: What are you busy with ? Ants are busy, too.

IMM: Don’t know. but I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic. It’s rush hour all the time.
God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results. Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.

IMM: Anyways, I still don’t get it, wasn’t expecting you to buzz me on instant messaging chat.
God: Well, what can I say. I’m more modern than you think I am. Now, do you have any questions to ask.

IMM: Yes, Please tell me why has life become so complicated ?
God: Stop Analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it complicated.

IMM: Why are we then constantly unhappy ?
God: Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. You are worrying because the act of worrying has become a habit. That’s why you are not happy.

IMM: But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainity ?
God: Uncertainity is inevitable , but worrying is optional.

IMM: But then , there is so much pain due to uncertainity.
God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

IMM: If suffering is optional , why do good people always suffer ?
God: Diamonds cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials. with that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

IMM: You mean to say such experience is useful ?
God: Yes. Experience is a hard teacher . She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

IMM: But still, why should we go through such tests ? why can’t we be free from problems
God: Problems are Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial Lessons to Enhance Mental Strength. Inner strength comes from struggle and endurance , not when you are free from problems.

IMM: Frankly, in the midst of so many problems , we don’t know where we are heading.
God: If you look outside you will not know where are you are heading. Look inside. Looking outside, you dream. looking inside, you awaken. Eyes provide sight. heart provides insight.

IMM: Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than moving in the right direction.
God: Success is relative, quantified by others. Satisfaction is absolute, quantified by you.Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying than knowing you rode ahead

IMM: Sometimes I ask , who am I , why am I here ? I don’t know the answers.
God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be . Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it. Life is not a process of discovery but a process of creation.

IMM: How can I get the best out of life ?
God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

IMM: Sometimes my prayers are not answered.
God: There are no unanswered prayers . At times the answer is NO

IMM: Thank you for ths wonderful chat. I’ll try to be less fearful.
God: Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystrey to solve, not a problem to resolve. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

As it turns out this is one chat transcript that you would always keep with yourself and surely it makes for a great read, especially on a weekend. So take care, have fun and have a great weekend.
