आजकल हवा चलती है, बहती नहीं..

आजकल हवा चलती है, बहती नहीं,

इसीलिए शायद नीम का पेड़ पत्तियाँ गिराता है न चाहते हुए भी…

छोटी थी जब मैं तो पेड़ से झरती थीं पत्तियाँ खुद अपनी खुशी से,

हरी-पीली और थोड़ी सूखी पत्तियों के ढेर पर कूदने का संगीत दिखाता था उनकी खुशी…

आज भी ढेर लगा है बाहर, मुर्झायी भूरी-काली पत्तियों का,

बोरे में भरकर ले जा रहा है सफाईवाला, फुरसत ही नहीं है बच्चों को कूदने की।

प्रकृति प्रकृति नहीं है…..

अद्भुत, अप्रतिम, अद्वितीय यह प्रकृति मात्र वृक्षों एवं जीवों का समुच्चयन नहीं है….. 

यह सार है उन वृक्षों से टपकती वर्षा की बूँदों का जिनमें संगीत है किसी भी वादनयंत्र की ध्वनियों को पीछे छोड़ देने का…

यह दृश्य है उन अकल्पनीय सत्यों का जो जीवन से विरक्ति उत्पन्न करने की क्षमता रखते हैं….

ये केवल कलकल करती नदियों का संगीत नहीं है, ये अनुभव है उसी नदी में बैठे बगुले की चातुर्यता का…..

मात्र कोयल मन को प्रसन्न नहीं कर सकती यदि कौए का कर्कश स्वर उसकी मधुरता का महत्व न बढा़ए….

मात्र सवेरे की लालिमा संतुष्टि नहीं देती यदि पूर्वकालीन रात्रि गहरी न हो……

वृक्षों की हरियाली हरी है तो केवल विस्तृत रेगिस्तान से….

वर्षा का महत्व है केवल सूखे से दरक चुकी शुष्क चटकी भूमि में….

प्रकृति तब तक प्रकृति नहीं है जब तक कि मानव का अस्तित्व अक्षम है उसकी आंतरिक गहराइयों को छू पाने में…..

और मानव तभी तक मानव है जब तक कि अन्य प्रजातियाँ रोक रहीं हैं स्वयं को आगे बढ़ने से……

Animals testing is against humanity

Imagine your body being mutilated for science…. while you’re still in it!

Imagine being hit on the head, one of your legs chained, dazed off but fully conscious. Gigantic clippers snip off the lower parts of your arms and legs. Completely helpless, you feel workers cutting into your thighs, belly and sides as they strip your skin from your legs  to your neck.

How is this feeling? You know these atrocities are happening daily with innocent animals just to develope so called cosmetics and fashion items which are nothing but a mere decoration on human’s soulless emotionless bodies.

Animals do not have less fear just because they live without words. They are here ‘with’ us not ‘for’ us. It’s not science, it’s animal abuse instead. Science has made us lose our conscience, we have become so selfish and emotionless that we can’t see the feelings of voiceless.

Know that the same spark of life that is within you, is within all our animal friends. Yes, they are our friends. How could you even think of surviving without them on this earth? We are all a part of group of the organisms mother nature has created. How by killing others, you think, you can develope where we are all interrelated?

How can you be so selfish that you forget these very animals were the ones who helped you survive when your machines and industries were not there. When you were merely an oragnism needing animals for transport and food. How could you see animals full of life as mere lifeless objects whom you can experiment on?

They are not the liquids in your test tubes, nor are they slabs of your laboratory. They are living creatures just like you. They have the same will to live with freedom as you do.  

They can’t ask for the pain to stop, so they need your atrocities to stop, they need you to speak out……..

From there I flew…..

As I opened my eyes and looked to the sky to see a sign of God…

a rain drop kissed the crease of my forehead,
songs sat upon clouds and drifted off like leaves in Autumn….
My spirit began to break away piece by piece like chipped statues,
I felt renewed…..

Like I grew wings and light shined around my head,
God gave me flight with no safety net
he said “if you believe as much as you preach……

you need no plan B”
From there I flew…..
