Kuch Kah Rahi Hoon Main ... ( कुछ कह रही हूँ मैं ... )

Captured By : Aishwarya Anand Singh
Jhaankte saveron me.
Saawan ki dopahron me.
Rah rahi hoon main,
Kuch kah rahi hoon main ...

Kahi adhoore armano me.
Kuch band pade maikhaano me.
Koi pi gaya hai mujhko,
To kisi ke aadhe paimaano me.
Bah rahi hoon main,
Kuch kah rahi hoon main ...

Kisi manzil ki raahon me.
Kamzor padi bahon me.
Jo aap nahi karte hain,
Un awaidh gunaaho me.
Rah rahi hoon main, 
Kuch kah rahi hoon main ... 

Kabhi adaalat me behron ki.
Kabhi aad me pehron ki.
Kissa nahi hoon nehron kaa,
Main kahani hoon lehron ki ...

Gulaab ko sukhaati hui.
Is raushni pe itraati hui.
In kaanto ko jalati hui.
Sab kuch dhuen me udaati hui.
Sun rahe ho naa,
Kya kah rahi hoon main ... 


झाँकते सवेरो में. 
सावन की दोपहरों में.
रह रही हूँ मैं,
कुछ कह रही हूँ मैं ...

कहीं अधूरे अरमानो में.
कुछ बंद पड़े मैख़ानों में.
कोई पी गया है मुझको,
तो किसी के आधे पैमानों में.
बह रही हूँ मैं,
कुछ कह रही हूँ मैं ...

किसी मंज़िल की राहों में.
कमज़ोर पड़ी बाहों में.
जो आप नही करते हैं,
उन अवैध गुनाहों में.
रह रही हूँ मैं, 
कुछ कह रही हूँ मैं ... 

कभी अदालत मे बहरों की.
कभी आड़ मे पहरों की.
किस्सा नही हूँ नहरों का,
मैं कहानी हूँ लहरों की ...

गुलाब को सुखाती हुई.
इस रौशनी पे इतराती हुई.
इन काँटों को जलाती हुई.
सब कुछ धुएँ मे उड़ाती हुई.
सुन रहे हो ना,
क्या कह रही हूँ मैं ...

Shayari #022 ( शायरी #022 )

Bas ik shaam aur ki ye waqt guzar jaayega ...
Aakhir aur kitna bigadegaa, ye dil ab sudhar jaayega ...

Ek - ek tukde ko samet kar jo tune sheesha bana rakha hai,
mehaz uski ek aawaz pe, sab bikhar jaayega ...

Usne aadat si daal di hai ab nashe me rahne ki,
shehar ke saare maykhaane uske hain, tu aur kidhar jaayega ...

Naa rona kabhi yun tu parchaiyon ki aad me,
bas chalta - chal is baarish me sab bah jaayega ...

Naa likh gazalen ae Shayar is kalam ko thaam le,
tu naadan hai baaton hi baaton me sab kah jaayega !!


बस एक शाम और कि ये वक़्त गुज़र जाएगा ...
आख़िर और कितना बिगड़ेगा, ये दिल अब सुधर जाएगा ...

एक - एक टुकड़े को समेट कर जो तूने शीशा बना रखा है,
महज़ उसकी एक आवाज़ पर, सब बिखर जाएगा ...

उसने आदत सी डाल दी है अब नशे में रहने कि,
शहर के सारे मयख़ाने उसके हैं, तू और किधर जाएगा ...

ना रोना कभी यूँ तू परछाईयों की आड़ में,
बस चलता - चल इस बारिश में सब बह जाएगा ...

ना लिख ग़ज़लें ऐ शायर इस कलम को थाम ले,
तू नादान है बातों ही बातों मे सब कह जाएगा ... !!

A Wednesday Evening

Coming back from work, as I open the door, he asks me, “What did you do today?” I ignored as usual, set some tea on the stove and went to change my clothes. My clothes are sort of good you know - all that classy and soft fabric you must have seen in the market - something of that sort. However, once I remove them, my body is quite not worth a sight. No not because, I took a gym’s quarterly membership, but went just for one day.

Tea is ready !! The colour and the essence takes me back to a time, where a cup of this costs some 7 rupees. Where there are mountains I wish to climb, there is a tree I often sit underneath, there is a cycle that is my only companion, there is a girl I love, there is a friend, today I fought for and there is a family that I care about. He again asked me, “Where are they?”

Two Sips !! The taste reminds me of a boy travelling in a bus on a chilled December night, a small room temporarily made in the midst of a veranda using aluminium planks on two sides and brick walls on the other two sides. There is a trouser, hanging in a stuffed almirah, an almirah which is too small to store his belongings, however, he kept a separate rack just for his Gods, “things happen for a reason”, he said. There are some coins in the trouser, that counted to 10, another cup of tea is what he purchased with them.

Then there are rains when he's walking on terrace, there are friends who fought for him today, there are women who love him and a family that cares for him. “What happened to them?”, this time he tried to be more genuine, as if he was really interested to know.

Cup is empty !! I shook my head, noticeably, acting to come back to reality. “I have to send today’s report to the boss”, I answered to the person in the mirror and rushed towards my laptop. “I wish, you ever send a report to yourself, of what happened to you today”, the man in the mirror was still there, adamantly refusing to accept the reality.

Shayari #021 ( शायरी #021 )

Ae Zindagi ! tune khoob hasaya hai ...
Kitani khoobsurti se mazaak banaya hai ...
Vo bacha jise unchaiyon se dar lagta tha,
tune khwab me use parinda banaya hai ...

Laashon pe raajneeti karte hain ye duniya wale,
abhi to maraa bhi na tha vo jiska janaza banaya hai ...

Ae dilbar ! toota jo dil mera to aawaz zara si hui,
par itani to aawaz bhi naa hui thi, jitna toone shor machaya hai ...


ऐ ज़िन्दगी ! तूने खूब हसाया है। 
कितनी ख़ूबसूरती से मज़ाक बनाया है। 
वो बच्चा जिसे ऊँचाइयों से डर लगता था,
तूने ख़्वाब में उसे परिंदा बनाया है ।। 

लाशों पे राजनीति करते हैं ये दुनिया वाले,
अभी तो मरा भी ना था वो जिसका जनाज़ा बनाया है ।। 

ऐ दिलबर ! टूटा जो दिल मेरा तो आवाज़ ज़रा सी हुई,
पर इतनी तो आवाज़ भी ना हुई थी, जितना तूने शोर मचाया है ।।

The MURDER ...

It has been three years and yet sometimes it hits me, why did I do it? Was it really necessary? Although there were a lot of reasons but no reason comes close to satisfy me, its like I left some stone unturned. Only if I could go back and do it better, may be inflict more suffering in him to get a pay back of what he had done to us or may be just undo it.

I remember suddenly waking up from deep sleep and being swung onto my mothers arm, “take your litter with you” he’d say and throw us out of our own house at 4 in the morning only to shiver till the morning light came. I was too young to differentiate between the good and bad but I certainly knew something was wrong with my father. My father ,who was otherwise a revered and God fearing man in society, weirdly changed when the doors closed, it was like two people living in one. 

While growing up I saw all sorts of violence in my three bedroom Bihar household and when I say all sorts, I mean it, I saw things that I still don’t understand and are difficult to explain. I experienced getting beaten to the pulp, and lying in my blood scared of getting up or moving till he left the house.He never let us go to church he would use our bible pages to clean up dog feces, he would burn my mother’s hands with a hot knife sometimes. 

He never showed any remorse, after a long session of fight he would ask mom to get ready and look nice for guests in half and hour. It was horrifying. The greatest mystery was we never understood where his money went he contributed very little for household expenses but we never dared asking, my mother was the bread winner, yet I don’t understand why she could mutter up the courage to leave him. 

Indian wives and their cliché principles imprison them. I harbored some sort of passive aggressive, feeling towards him I didn’t outright hate him but often fantasized, burning his face with an iron when he slept, gauging his eyes out with a knife, beating his head with a cricket bat till it was smashed to pulp and what not, but none of these were possible because it would look like an obvious murder and an obvious murder would lead to a culprit. I even wondered how bad juvenile prison can be. But he wasn’t worth going to jail for and I couldn’t live with his hideous face one more day.

I saw how careless he used to be, he never checked his car before taking off in the morning. I am a good reader I always read a lot of things, once I read an article on how car breaks fail, I did the same thing on his car, with his rash driving he came right under a truck on a highway trying to engage his breaks, although I despised his very presence and I feel hypocritical writing this  but somewhere my heart broke after all I was a part of him. 

But I couldn’t let this go on, being the eldest child I felt responsible for every bad thing my mother and my siblings suffered. But did I have to do it? I didn’t come close to the satisfaction I felt when I had fantasized  killing him, I rather felt an insatiable thrust in me, I turned into a psychopath over time. Could I have done it better of should I not have done it at all? May be it is this lack of satisfaction turns killers into serial killers.

Khumaar .... [ ख़ुमार .... ]

Jo kal tha, beakal tha ...
Jo ab hai, besabr hai ...

Aukaat nahi zindagi ki, ki khwahishon ko maar de,
hai kaun cheekhtaa yahan, kiski ye kabr hai ...

Jo ladd raha hoon mai abhi, jo padh raha hoon mai abhi,
teri kami hai ye, tera hi dard hai ...

Toot ke bhi hoon khada, ye mujhpe kya sawar hai ...
Kirdaar badalte rahe, kahani barkarar hai ...
Ye kaisa khumaar hai, Ye kaisa khumaar hai ...

Kahin awaz me hai nasha ...
Kahin andaaz me hai nasha ...
Kya peene wala jaanega,
Jo pyaas me hai nasha ...

Kahi haar me hai nasha, kahin jeet kaa guroor hai ...
Aur jo ghulaa nahi sharab me, vo tere ishq kaa suroor hai ...

Khamoshiyon me cheekhtaa ...
Banjaron me bheegtaa ...
Har zarre me hoon basa, Har dil pe meraa raaj hai ...
Tu aaj maar de mujhe, Kal rahegaa goonjtaa, Jo aaj mera aaj hai ...

Zindagi hi meri ye, maut ko lalkaar hai ...
Kirdaar badalte rahe, kahani barkarar hai ...
Ye kaisa khumaar hai, Ye kaisa khumaar hai ...



जो कल था, बेअक्ल था ...
जो अब है, बेसब्र है ...

औकात नही ज़िंदगी की, कि ख्वाहिशों को मार दे,
है कौन चीखता यहाँ, किसकी ये कब्र है ...

जो लड़ रहा हूँ मै अभी, जो पढ़ रहा हूँ मै अभी,
तेरी कमी है ये, तेरा ही दर्द है ...

टूट के भी हूँ खड़ा, ये मुझपे क्या सवार है ...
किरदार बदलते रहे, कहानी बरकरार है ...
ये कैसा ख़ुमार है, ये कैसा ख़ुमार है ... 

कहीं आवाज़ मे है नशा ...
कहीं अंदाज़ मे है नशा ...
क्या पीने वाला जानेगा,
जो प्यास मे है नशा ...

कहीं हार मे है नशा, कहीं जीत का गुरूर है ...
और जो घुला नहीं शराब में, वो तेरे इश्क़ का सुरूर है ...

खामोशियों मे चीखता ...
बंजारों मे भीगता ...
हर ज़र्रे में हूँ बसा, हर दिल पे मेरा राज है ...
तू आज मार दे मुझे, कल रहेगा गूँजता, जो आज मेरा आज है ...

ज़िंदगी ही मेरी ये, मौत को ललकार है ...
किरदार बदलते रहे, कहानी बरकरार है ...
ये कैसा ख़ुमार है, ये कैसा ख़ुमार है ...

Junior Wold Golf Champion, A Milk Man's Son :- Shubham Jaglan

"I started off by playing golf in our 'sarson ka khet'. My grandfather asked me to take up a new sport instead of obvious and much-easier choice - wrestling. I learnt golf from internet as there was no coach or mentor in our village. Seeing my interest in the game, my father took me to Madhuban golf course in Karnal." He said this to India Today after winning TaylorMade-Adidas World Junior Golf Tournament 2013Jaglan has won over 100 domestic and international tournaments and is a recipient of the "NDTV - Emerging Player" & "Margdarshan" awards.

From Israna, near Panipat to Las Vegas & California, it has been a dream journey for him. On 19th July'15, he clinched a one stroke win at the Junior Wold Golf Championship in California and just after 5 days on 23rd July'15 he won IJGA World Stars of Junior Golf event in Las Vegas. More than 1000 participants from 45 different countries have participated in world championship and some Past champions of this tournament include Notah Begay III, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson, Corey Pavin, Nick Price, Craig Stadler, David Toms and Tiger Woods. 

He was born in a village Israna, near Panipat, Haryana. His father is a Milk Man, Sells Milk as profession and his family has a history of practicing Wrestling. Like everyone else, his father initially wanted him to be a wrestler.

But almighty always has something in his bag, A NRI named Kapur Singh initiated a Golf academy in his village Israna and enrolled the kids living nearby. He bought all the equipments for training and even hired a coach to train the kids. But soon their interest dropped, even the coach left the job, the academy was closed and some of the equipments were given to Shubham by the coach and he told shubham's father that boy has an extraordinary talent.

Shubham continued his practice on a small piece of land in the backyard of his house.  The Land was cleaned up by his father and converted into a green lawn with 3 holes. He used to practice his bunker shots from a cement mixer filled with sand, rehearsed chips near his angaan from a tiny grass strip with holes. He learnt much of his golf by watching experts on You Tube. 

Former golfer Nonita Lall Qureshi who has been training Shubham since he was 7 year old says, "Shubham would spend hours watching video tutorials on the computer. A lot of what he had learnt at that stage was self-taught. For someone just seven years of age, his understanding of the mechanics of golf was phenomenal,". He used to practice golf in fields on weekdays and on weekends he used to go to Karnal Golf Course on a bus to refine and test his game.

But the major decision for the family was to leave everything and move to delhi. The prime support at this stage was provided by The Golf Foundation, a charitable society formed  by golfers who want to donate to the game and help the underprivileged golfers of the country. 

Amit Luthra, former Asian Games gold medalist and Arjuna Award recipient, of The Golf Foundation says that they encouraged their family and provided them basic necessities and even a scooty to travel across in delhi. "We bought them a Hondo Brio because he had to travel with Shubham in NCR. We ensured his father and him got a US visa. And we take care of his expenses in India and abroad," says Luthra. Delhi Golf Club gave hime a 2 Lakh rupees annual scholarship and provided free playing facilities.

Nonita never forgets to point out that Shubham has a clear concept of golf being "a target sport." "Once his drive was just five yards off target and I said, good shot. He said, maam, how can you call that a good shot. He is focused on accuracy and hugely demanding on himself."

Whole Indian Media compares him to Tiger Woods but he states Seve Ballesteros and Gary Player among his idols. He adds Sir APJ Abdul Kalam's words:
"A dream isn't which you see in sleep, but it is something which doesn't let you sleep" 
The best part is his father says,"Shubam sent an iPhone for me from the US and an iPad. I never dreamt of such things. I didn’t know about technology but he told me and pressurised me to operate it. I now have a Facebook account and I manage Whatsapp too. He sends me pictures from US and I also reply him back. He also told me how to operate it. Honestly, I am living the moment."

Tournament director for World Stars, Marty LaRoche, who handed over the winning trophy to Shubham added "There were 360 kids who have participated from 34 countries. Shubham is a winner. But the best thing I liked about him is that he is a better person than a golfer. That is why he is on the top."

Mai Bharat Hoon ... [ मैं भारत हूँ ... ]

Kuch Dino Pahle, Beete somvaar ek Faqeer mila mujhe, Bhikaari ! Bheekh maang raha tha, Mujhse kahta hai, "Kuch Paise de do Sahab !!". 

Maine gusse se dekha aur khaha, "Bheekh kyun maangte ho, sharam nahi aati tumhe, tumhaare jaiso ki hi vajah se bharat itna pichdaa hua hai, Hum tarrakki nahi karte, bharat kaa itna naam badnaam hai ... " 

To vo mujhe rok ke, meri aankhon me dekhta hai aur kehta hai, "SAHAB MAI BHI BHARAT HOON ..."

कुछ दीनो पहले, बीते सोमवार एक फ़क़ीर मिला मुझे, भिकारी ! भीख माँग रहा था, मुझसे कहता है, "कुछ पैसे दे दो साहब !!". 

मैने गुस्से से देखा और कहा, "भीख क्यूँ माँगते हो, शर्म नही आती तुम्हे, तुम्हारे जैसो की ही वजह से भारत इतना पिछड़ा हुआ है, हम तरक्की नही करते, भारत का इतना नाम बदनाम है ... " 

तो वो मुझे रोक के, मेरी आँखों मे देखता है और कहता है, "साहब मैं भी भारत हूँ ..."

Sadak pe baitha mai bharat hoon,
Guroor me aintha mai bharat hoon ||

Kitaabon pe to aazad hoon mai,
Dilon me aabad hoon mai,
Bachpan me kabhi gulaam raha tha,
Jawani ki cheekhti aawaz hoon mai ||

Becha gaya hoon, Khareeda gaya hoon,
Haara bhi hoon, to kabhi jeeta gaya hoon ||

Jaise kuch raheeson ki ek bigadi hui aadat hoon,
Mai Bharat hoon ... Mai Bharat hoon ||

Unhe Kyun dosh dete ho, mai to tumhara bhi gulaam hoon,
Kitne parde lagaoge jo hoon, sare aam hoon ||

Pahle khoon me behta tha, ab nashe me behta mai bharat hoon,
Pahle hothon pe rahta tha, ab pyaalon me rehta mai bharat hoon ||

Jaise ek kamzor neev ki, badi unchi imarat hoon,
Mai Bharat hoon ... Mai Bharat hoon ||

Utha lo mujhe, 
Jaga do mujhe,
Tumhaare haathon me hoon,
Kuch bana do mujhe ||

Sadak pe gale milta hoon,
Par sansad me cheekhta hoon ||

Jaise Kisi Puraani mehbooba ki sharat hoon,
Mai Bharat hoon ... Mai Bharat hoon ||

Uth khada ho, abhi bahut chalna hai hume,
Ek - Ek eenth jodkar, ye desh badalna hai hume ||

Nasha karna hai ! Par Jeet kaa !! Aur Jeetni hai duniya,
Tu Khada to ho, Dekhte hain kitani hai ye duniya ||

Barbaad mat kar mujhe,
Bekaar mat kar mujhe,
Laakhon shaheedon ki shahadat hoon ...
Mai Bharat hoon ... Mai Bharat hoon ||


सड़क पे बैठा मै भारत हूँ,
गुरूर मे ऐंठा मै भारत हूँ ||

किताबों पे तो आज़ाद हूँ मै,
दिलों में आबाद हूँ मै,
बचपन मे कभी गुलाम रहा था,
जवानी की चीखती आवाज़ हूँ मै ||

बेचा गया हूँ, खरीदा गया हूँ,
हारा भी हूँ, तो कभी जीता गया हूँ ||

जैसे कुछ रहीसों की एक बिगड़ी हुई आदत हूँ,
मैं भारत हूँ ... मैं भारत हूँ ||

उन्हे क्यूँ दोष देते हो, मै तो तुम्हारा भी गुलाम हूँ,
कितने पर्दे लगाओगे जो हूँ, सारेआम हूँ ||

पहले खून में बहता था, अब नशे में बहता मै भारत हूँ,
पहले होठों पे रहता था, अब प्यालों मे रहता मै भारत हूँ ||

जैसे एक कमज़ोर नीव की, बड़ी उँची इमारत हूँ,
मैं भारत हूँ ... मैं भारत हूँ ||

उठा लो मुझे, 
जगा दो मुझे,
तुम्हारे हाथों मे हूँ,
कुछ बना दो मुझे ||

सड़क पे गले मिलता हूँ,
पर संसद मे चीखता हूँ ||

जैसे किसी पुरानी महबूबा की शरारत हूँ,
मैं भारत हूँ ... मैं भारत हूँ ||

उठ खड़ा हो, अभी बहुत चलना है हमें
एक - एक ईंठ जोड़कर, ये देश बदलना है हमें ||

नशा करना है ! पर जीत का !! और जीतनी है दुनिया,
तू खड़ा तो हो, देखते हैं कितनी है ये दुनिया ||

बर्बाद मत कर मुझे,
बेकार मत कर मुझे,
लाखों शहीदों की शहादत हूँ ...
मैं भारत हूँ ... मैं भारत हूँ ||
