कुछ सच लिखूं या झूठ तमाम लिखूं

by Dev B

कुछ सच लिखूं या झूठ तमाम लिखूं

महानगरों  की  झूठी शान  लिखूंया 
या उ पास के  स्लम का  हाल लिखू .
काली सड़कों पर दौड़ती जिंदगी लिखूं,
या उस्सी सड़क पर टूटी साँस लिखूं
शहरों का बौधिक उठान लिखूं
या उनके नैतिक अवसान लिखूं

कुछ सच लिखूं या झूठ तमाम लिखूं

गाँव की खुशहाली लिखू
या रोते किशानो की दास्ताँ लिखू
उनकी जिंदगी पर जीत लिखूं
या मौत को गले लगाती हार लिखूं
हरी भरी खेत की पौध लिखूं
या कुपौषित बच्चो की पौध  लिखूं

कुछ सच लिखूं या झूठ तमाम लिखूं

सपनों का मर जाना ही, एक नई जिंदगी की सुरुआत है |

by Dev B

सपनो के साथ जीते जीते, न जाने कब सपनो से रिश्ता छुट गया |
और मरे हुए सपनो के साथ ,न जाने कब एक रिश्ता बन गया |

या यूँ कहो की ,
सपनों का मर जाना ही एक नई ज़िंदगी की शुरुआत थी |
क्यूंकि तब सिर्फ़ सपने जीते थे,
और सिर्फ़ सपने ही अपनों में थें |
क्यूंकि जब सपने मरे थे,
और तब ही मैंने घर को अपना जाना था |
क्यूंकि तब जाकर जाना,
सपनो के सुनहरे चादर के नीचे भी सचाई थी |
क्यूंकि चादर ढांप लेती थी,
पापा की थकान को और मां की मजबूरी|
क्यूंकि चादर ढांप लेती थी,
बहन की ऊब को और भाई के सपने|
क्यूंकि चादर ढांप लेती थी,
मुझसे जुड़े दुसरो के सपनो को |

सपनो के साथ जीते जीते, न जाने कब सपनो से रिश्ता छुट गया |
और मरे हुए सपनो के साथ , न जाने कब एक रिश्ता बन गया |

आज फिर न जाने क्यूँ,
पुराने सपनो के रिस्तो को जोड़ना चाहता हूँ |
क्यूंकि सपनो ने,
फिर पर्दों से झांकना सुरु कर दिया है |
क्यूंकि मुर्दे सपनो की अंगराई,
फिर मेरी नींद में खलल डाला है |
क्यूंकि जब सपने मर जाते हैं,
तो सारा व्यक्तित्व नंगा हो जाता है|
क्यूंकि इस नंगई में ही हम,
अपने जीवन का कोना तलाश लेते हैं|
क्यूंकि सपनो के लाश पर
हम बैठ जाते हैं, सिमटकर, थककर,
क्योंकि अब हमें वहीं उस लाश साथ,
खुद को तलाशने की झूठी कोशिश करनी है|

सपनो के साथ जीते जीते, न जाने कब सपनो से रिश्ता छुट गया |
और मरे हुए सपनो के साथ , न जाने कब एक रिश्ता बन गया |

पर कैसे भूल जाऊं |
सपनों का मर जाना ही,
एक DEGREE की सुरुआत है |
सपनों का मर जाना ही,
एक JOB की सुरुआत है |
सपनों का मर जाना ही,
समझदारी की पहचान है |
सपनों का मर जाना ही,
सामाजिक हर्ष है।
सपनों का मर जाना ही,
एक नई जिंदगी की सुरुआत है |

सपनो के साथ जीते जीते, न जाने कब सपनो से रिश्ता छुट गया |
और मरे हुए सपनो के साथ , न जाने कब एक रिश्ता बन गया |

अब ये मुर्दे सपने, अपने सपने
खिड़कियों से नही झांकते,
फिर भी परदे लगा रखे हैं |
सपनो की कब्र पर आखिरी कील ठोकी
उस कील पर टंगे नेमप्लेट लगाया
न जाने उसपर क्या क्या लिख दिया |
सपनों को मार दफ़न कर देना
आज सब कुछ था, है और रहेगा|
अब तो बस सपनों का मर जाना ही,
एक नई जिंदगी की सुरुआत है |

सपनो के साथ जीते जीते, न जाने कब सपनो से रिश्ता छुट गया |
और मरे हुए सपनो के साथ , न जाने कब एक रिश्ता बन गया |

Can’t forget my childhood

by Dev B

Can’t forget my childhood,
…….which is still in my mood.
Paper plane in windy weather
…….Paper boats in rain’s water.
Laughing and crying in any season,
…… without knowing any reason.
That sweet nap on mother’s lap,
……..Oh god!
……..Why did you create such a big gap?
Where are my grannies and
…….. their fairly tales?
Where are my friends and
……..their lovely games?
My life is going different ways,
…….. Oh God!.
…….. Fulfill my only desire
……..help me to search my golden days.

In Search Of Happiness

by Dev B

|| Me ||

Sometime I think why I am not able to find even a single happy face around me.  I generally ask this question to all. People start answering with a typical answer “I’m fine” but their answer ends with – “why should I?”. Even after asking this question to many peoples around me, I am not able to find an exact reason behind the hidden sorrow behind a smiling face. I can feel that somewhere it is related to expectations and worries.

Expectation from God, Expectation from friends, Expectation from family, Expectation from relative, Expectation from livings, Expectation from non-livings ………Expectation from each and every thing around us except expectation from our self. In the similar way, we are worried for every thing around us.

As a human, it is almost impossible to get off from expectation and worry but impossible it self says – I’m possible. Only hope for this impossibility is hidden in a contemplative life, which can be achieved through spirituality.If any body wants to be happy person then S/he must try to go deep inside the spirituality which is itself not easy. We can minimize our habit to keep expecting and worrying by maximize believe in asceticism.

Six paths of happiness are directly or indirectly mentioned in almost every spiritual text and they emphasize on asceticism.

1. Deny any reward or punishment for either good or bad deeds.

Every living and non-living entity in this mortal world, is just a puppet operated by the great puppeteer of the universe. We do what supreme power wants us to do. Humans are the favorite creation of Great puppeteer, he attached us with long strings and gifted us a tiny brain. Some thing like an artificial intelligence enabled robot which are controlled by human. Whatever good or bad we do should be rewarded or punished by supreme power. Who are the human to reward or punishment for either good or bad deeds of other? We all know this but we always keep thinking about reward for self and punishment for other which is a cause of suffering

2. We are powerless but  suffering is optional

We always follow materialistic power in terms of monetary, physical, social, political etc, to make thing favorable to ourself. We keep trying hard to make our life certain and painless. It is human who has chosen worrying and suffering. Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

3. The soul and  Pleasure-Pain are eternal

You can find a person in pleasure who has nothing and at same time you can find a person who has every thing but suffering with an unknown pain.  Suffering is “wanting what we can’t get” and “not wanting what we can”. World is full of pleasure and pain and its depends on individual that what S/he want to chose and how much. Thousands of lines has been written on the eternality of soul and obviously these lines have been read by millions but Do we ever able to believe in eternality of soul and certainty of death?

4. Death is certain, with death, all is annihilated.

“Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.” – Peter Tosh. Everyone wants to have a life of heaven, annihilated from all type of sorrow. We forget that with death, all is annihilated; one can achieve MOKSHA only after death. We all live with necrophobia that’s why we don’t want to die. This phobia is with us because we know that we will be rewarded or punished by almighty for our deeds and no one want to be punished. How can we come out from the fear of death? Answer is – by the avoiding evil inside and outside us.

5. Restraint can help in the avoidance of all evil.

Our ATMANA can be endowed, cleansed by and suffused with avoidance of evil, which exist inside us or out side us. We need a strong self restraint to the avoidance of evil. Each of us has willpower and with their willpower they can develop self-restraint. We lose our willpower because we think lots. We think every thing but we never think ‘yes’ (i.e. certainty). We always think either ‘not’ or not ‘not’.

6. Don’t think so. Don’t think in that way or otherwise. Don’t think not or not ‘not’

Today we keep thinking even when we are sleeping. We think because we are worried. We are worried about expectation from us and our expectation from other. We keep thinking what if we do ‘not’ live up to expectation. Our today is the tomorrow that we worried about yesterday. We are worrying because the act of worrying has become a habit. That’s why worrying became a reason of sorrow.

           

PS: Above mention paths are known as Amoral-ism, Fatal-ism, Material-ism, Eternal-ism, Restrain-ism and Agnostic-ism. I found all six paths are related and depends on each other.
