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।


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……..

वाराणसी के बारे में राय बनाने से पहले

ये पवित्र भूमि है भारत की, ये वह वाराणसी है जहाँ अब भी विश्वास व्याप्त है निश्छल भावों में। वह वाराणसी जहाँ वक्त मानो थम सा गया है धर्म और आध्यात्म के साथ।

परंतु मात्र धर्म को वाराणसी की पहचान मानना कुछ ऐसा ही है जैसे कोयल की पहचान मात्र काले रंग को मानना। धर्म तो वाराणसी का अभिन्न अंग है ही, परंतु साथ ही साथ यहाँ जीवन के अनेक रूप बसते हैं। कभी सुबह-सुबह टहलकर देखिए इस नगरी में, इतिहास की किसी भी पुस्तक के वर्णन को पीछे छोड़ दे ऐसा अभूतपूर्व कालविजयी अनुभव प्रदान करने का सामर्थ्य रखने वाला यह नगर न तो विकास की अंधी दौड़ में पागल है और न ही पुरातन रूढ़ियों में जकड़ा है। किसी भी परिस्थिति में मन को शांति देने वाला वाराणसी मात्र आरतियों को गुंजायमान नहीं करता, यह गुंजयित करता है उन लोगों के आंतरिक स्वर जो अन्यथा बाहर नहीं आ पाते।

तो वाराणसी के बारे में कोई राय बनाने से पहले एक बार भ्रमण अवश्य करिए इस नगरी का। हो सकता है सुबह फूल खरीदते समय, या चाय की सुड़कियाँ लेते समय, या यूँ ही अनायास गंगा को निहारते समय स्वयं से सामना हो जाए आपका। उसी स्वयं से जो अभी अंतर्मन में होते हुए भी कोसों दूर है मन मस्तिष्क से।

Something higher

Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves…… 

Where there is no home

Try thinking about having no home on earth once. Think about living alone when you need your family the most. Think about spending your whole day  crying and remembering your good old days and comparing them to nothingness of present.

You can imagine it but can’t feel it. When you are old you see the people whom you spent your childhood and adulthood with are leaving this world one by one. You find yourself growing weaker day by day. You see your children whom you devoted your whole life for have left you to a place where you know nobody. You still want to live with them, to forgive them and love them like anything for that older people always have a big and soft heart.

But is it this big heart that makes your heart shrink so small that you can’t even take care of them when they need you the most? All they want is little attention and affection in return of their great devotions and sacrifices they made to reach you where you are now.

So love them and take care of them so that you won’t ever have to regret for it later. What goes is what comes around.

So if there is no home for them now, how can you be so sure about having a secure and safe old age for yourself??????
