Kya Karoon samvedna Le Kar Tumhari : The poem that united Harivansh Rai & Tezi Bachchan

Amooman jab kavi koyee kavita likhata hai to koee ghatna, koyee prasang ya fir kisi vyaktitv ka tana bana jaroor usake manas patal par ubharata hai. ye tana bana jaroori nahin ki hal filahal ka ho. atit ke anubhav aur aas pas hoti ghatanayen kaee bar naye purane taron ko jod jati hain aur ek bhavana prakat hoti hai jo ek kavita ki shakl le leti hai. par kabhi bhoot mein likhi aapaki rachana, aap hi ke bhavishy ki rahon ko bhi badal de to ? ho sakata hai aap ke sath bhi kuchh aisa huaa hon.

aaj jis prasang ka ullekh karane ja raha hoon vo ek bar fir harivansh ray bachchan ji ke jivan ki us sandhya se juda huaa hai jab shyama ji ke dehant ke bad ve ekaki jivan vyatit kar rahe the aur apane ek mitr prakash ke yahan bareli pahunche the. vahin unaki pahali mulakat mis teji soori se huee thi. apani aatmakatha mein mulakat ki rat ka jikr karate huye bachchan kahate hain

"........us din 31st december ki raat thi. rat mein sabane ye ichchha jahir ki naya varsh mere kavy path se aaranbh ho. aadhi rat bit chuki thi, mainne keval ek do kavitayen sunane ka vada kiya tha. sabane kya karoon sanvedana le kar tumhari vala git sunana chaha, jise main subah suna chuka tha. yah kavita mainne bade sinikal mood mein likhi thi. mainne sunana aaranbh kiya. ek palang par main baitha tha, mere samane prakash baithe the aur mis teji soori unake pichhe khadin thin ki git khatm ho aur vah apane kamare mein chali jayen. git sunate sunate na jane mere svar mein kahan se vedana bhar aaee. jaise hi mainne us nayan se bah saki kab is nayan ki ashru-dhara pankti padi ki dekhata hoon ki mis soori ki aankhen dabadabati hain aur tap tap unake aansu ki boonde prakash ke kandhe par gir rahi hain. yah dekakar mera kanth bhar aata hai. mera gala rundh jata hai. mere bhi aansu nahin ruk rahe hain. aur jab mis soori ki aankhon se ganga jamuna bah chali hai aur mere aankhon se jaise sarasvati. kuchh pata nahin kab prakash ka parivar kamare se nikal gaya aur ham donon ek doosare se lipatakar rote rahe. aansuon se kitane kool-kinare toot gir gaye, kitane bandh dhah-bah gaye, ham donon ke kitane shap-tap dhul gaye, kitana ham baras-baras kar halake huye hain, kitana bhing-bhing kar bhari? koee premi hi is virodh ko samajhega. kitana hamane ek doosare ko pa liya, kitana ham ek doosare mein kho gaye. ham kya the aur aansuon ke chashme mein naha kar kya ho gaye. ham pahale se bilakul badal gaye hain par pahale se ek doosare ko jyada pahachan rahe hain. chaubis ghante pahale hamane is kamare mein ajanabi ki tarah pravesh kiya aur chaubis ghante bad ham usi kamare se jivan sathi pati patni nahin banakar nikal rahe hain. yah nav varsh ka nav prabhat hai jisaka svagat karane ko ham bahar aaye hain. yah achanak ek doosare ke prati aakarshita, ek doosare par nichhavar athava ek doosare ke prati samarpit hona aaj bhi vishleshit nahin ho saka hai. ......"

to dekha aapane kavita ke chand shabd do ajanabi manavon ko kitane pas la sakate hain. bhavanaon ke sailab ko umadane ki takat rakhate hain ve. to aaiye dekhen kya thi vo poori kavita

kya karoon sanvedana lekar tumhari?
kya karoon?

main dukhi jab-jab huaa
sanvedana tumane dikhaee,
main krtajny huaa hamesha,
riti dono ne nibhaee,
kintu is aabhar ka ab
ho utha hai bojh bhari;
kya karoon sanvedana lekar tumhari?
kya karoon?

yek bhi uchchhvas mera
ho saka kis din tumhara?
us nayan se bah saki kab
is nayan ki ashru-dhara?
saty ko moonde rahegi
shabd ki kab tak pitari?
kya karoon sanvedana lekar tumhari?
kya karoon?

kaun hai jo doosaron ko
du:kh apana de sakega?
kaun hai jo doosare se
du:kh usaka le sakega?
kyon hamare bich dhokhe
ka rahe vyapar jari?
kya karoon sanvedana lekar tumhari?
kya karoon?

kyon n ham len mana, ham hain
chal rahe aisi dagar par,
har pathik jis par akela,
dukh nahin bantte paraspar,
doosaron ki vedana mein
vedana jo hai dikhata,
vedana se mukti ka nij
harsh keval vah chhipata;
tum dukhi ho to sukhi main
vishv ka abhishap bhari!
kya karoon sanvedana lekar tumhari?
kya karoon?

kya ye sach nahin jab apane dukh se ham khud hi nibatane ki asafal koshish kar rahe hon to sanvedanaon ke shabd ,dil ko sukoon pahunchane ke bajaye matr khokhale shabd se mahasoos hote hain. harsh ki bat itani jaroor hai ki bachchan ki ye dukhi karati kavita khud unake jivan mein ek naee roshani ka sanchar kar gaee.

vaise ye batayen ki kya aapake dvara likhi koyee kavita aisi bhi hai jisane aapake jivan ke marg ko ekadam se mod diya ho?
