milogi mujhe tum ik din, mujhko yakin tha
ham aaj mil hi gaye
sach kar do mera sapna
tum hi to jara apna
kah do mujhe...

Bahut Dinon Ki Baat Hai, Fiza ko Yaad bhi Nahin

Kya aapake sath kabhi aisa huaa hai ki kisi shayar ki ek rachana ne bahut dinon tak aap par prabhav chhoda ho par fir kabhi aap usaka likha na pad paye hon, na sun paye hon. aaj ki nazm ek aise hi shayar ki hai jinaka nam tha salam machhali 'shahri'. ab shayaron ke naam is tarah ke ho sakte hain ye n to tab samajh paya tha aur na aaj hi. Par baad mein pata chala ki janab Uttar Pradesh ke Jaunpur zile ke ek qasbe Machhali Shahar se talluk rakhte hain.

Aathavin ya nauvin kaksha mein raha hoonga jab badi di ne ek cassette kharidi thi. nam tha Ecstasies . sach poochhiye to jindagi mein pahali bar ghazalon ko sunana isi samay shuru huaa tha. ghazalon ki kaiset mein ye nazm bhi thi aur jahan tak mujhe yad padata hai ise sunane ke pahale tab tak ki jindagi mein sirf mainne ek aur nazm baat nikalegi to door talak jayegi.... suni thi. aur jaisi ki umr thi ise ek bar sunakar hi man aisa dravit ho utha tha, mano shayar ne jo kaha vo mere sath huaa ho. salon ye kaisat ghis ghis kar tab tak suni jati rahi jab tak vo kharab nahin ho gaee.

Aaj Salam Machhli Shehari ki is nazm ko dobara padata hoon to shayar ko salam karane ko ji chahata hai, lagata hai ki shayar ne kitani sadi juban mein ek jajbaati nazm likhi thi jo badi sahajata se chhutapan mein dil mein utar gaee thi.

aap ne bhi Jagjit Singh ki dilakash aavaj mein ise suna hi hoga aur nahin suna to ek bar jaroor suniye....




bahut dinon ki baat hai
fiza ko yad bhi nahin
ye baat aaj ki nahin
bahut dinon ki baat hai

shabab par bahar thi
fiza bhi khushagavar thi
na jane kyoon machal pada
main apane ghar se chal pada
kisi ne mujhako rokakar
badi ada se tokakar
kaha ke laut aaiye
meri kasam n jaiye

par mujhe khabar n thi
mahaul pe najar n thi
na jane kyoon machal pada
main apane ghar se chal pada
main shahar se fir aa gaya
khayal tha ke pa gaya
use jo mujhse door thi
magar meri jaroor thi

aur ik hasin sham ko
main chal pada salam ko

gali ka rang dekhakar
nayi tarang dekhakar
mujhe badi khushi huee, khushi huee
main kuchh isi khushi mein tha
kisi ne jhankakar kaha
paraye ghar se jaiye
meri kasam n aaiye

vahi hasin sham hai
bahar jisaka nam hai
chala hoon ghar ko chhodakar
n jane jaoonga kidhar
koee nahin jo rokakar
koee nahin jo tokakar
kahe ke laut aaiye
meri kasam n jaiye

meri kasam n jaiye....


'shehari' is nazm ke rikard hone ke gyarah sal poorv yani 1973 mein 51 varsh ki alpayu mein is duniya jahan se rukhasat ho chuke the. is gumanam se shayar ki mrtyu ke bees saal baad inaki rachanaon ki sudh li gayee. nabbe ke dashak mein uttar pradesh urdu akadami se inaki rachanaon ka pahala sangrah prakashit huaa tha. aur 1998 mein dilli ke ek prakashak ne inake bare mein ajij indauri ki likhi ek kitab bhi chhapi, nam tha salam machhali shehari : shakhsiyat aur fan. main ab tak inaki koee kitab nahin pad paya hoon, par ummid hai jald hi padoonga.

On Asha Bhosle's 75th Birthday : Her sweet songs, nazm & ghazal from album Meraj E Ghazal

8 September Asha tayee ki 75 vin salagirah thi. kuchh dinon pahale unhen 'sa re ga ma' ke manch par gaate suna tha. abhi bhi vo khanaka, vo madhury jas ka tas bana lagata hai. aaj is khushi ke avasar par geet aur gajalon ka ye guladasta aapake liye pesh-ye-khidamat hai. jivan ke har rang ko apani gayiki main samahit karane vali is mahan gayika ki aavaj main aaj suniye piya ko sanbodhit karaata ek pyara sa gita, ek udasi bhari najm aur faij ki likhi ek dilakash gajal .

sabase pahale bat is najm ki jo mainne sabase pahale 1985 ke aas pas suni thi. abhi jo thodi bahut urdu samajh main aati hai, us vakt vo bhi samajh nahin aati thi. par jane kya tha is najm main, ki mukhada sunate hi isaki udasi dil main tair jati thi. mere khyal se ye sara karishma tha aasha taee ki bhavapoorn aavaj ka, jisaki vajah se bhasha ki samajh na hote huye bhi isaki bhavanaon ka sanpreshan hrday tak sahajata se ho jata tha.

to aaiye pahale sunen Meraj-e-Ghazal se li gaee salim gilani sahab ki likhi ye najm

raat jo toone deep bujhaye
mere the... mere the....
ashk jo sare dil main chhupaye
mere the... mere the....

kaife baharan, mahare nigaran, lutf e junoon
mausam e gul ke mahake saye
mere the... mere the....

mere the vo, khab jo toone chhin liye
git jo hothon par murajhaye
mere the... mere the....

aanchal aanchala, gesu gesoo, chaman chaman
sari khushabu mere saye
mere the... mere the....

sahil sahil laharen jinako dhoondhati hain
maji ke vo mahake saye
mere the... mere the....


ghulam ali ke sath aasha ji ka ye album mujhe do any prastutiyon ke liye bhi priy tha. ek to shabih abbas ka likha, bada pyara sa muskuraata gudagudata ye nagma . dekhiye aasha ji apani ithalati aavaj main kis tarah apane sajan ke liye prem ke kaside pad rahi hain

salona sa sajan hai aur main hoon
jiya main ik agan hai aur main hoon

tumhare roop ki chhaya main sajan
badi thandi jalan hai or main hoon

churaye chain raaton ko jagaye
piya ka ye chalan hai aur main hoon

piya ke samane ghoonghat utha de
badi chanchal pavan hai aur main hoon

rachega jab mere hathon main mainhadi
usi din ki lagan hai aur main hoon

aur aaj ki is mahafil ka samapan karaate hain isi album ki is behad mashahoor ghazal se, jise likha tha faiz ahmad faiz ne

yoon saja chand ki chhalaka tere andaz ka rang
yoon faza mahaki ki badala mere hamaraj ka rang

Gurucharan Das : Kahani Ek Parivaar Ki

Achchhi kitabon ke bare mein to ham aksar charcha karate rahate hain. par vo kitaben jo hamein itani jyada nahin janchati un par bat karana ham pasand nahin karate. aaj ki charcha ek aisi hi kitab ke bare mein hai jise likha hai jane mane buddhijivi Gurucharan Das .



akhabaron ko niyamit roop se padane valon aur audyogik jagat mein ruchi rakhane valon ke liye gurucharan das ka nam kisi parichay ka muhataj nahin hai. College ke samay se Times of Indiamein aksar ravivar ke din unake likhe column par nigah gujarati thi aur vahin ye bhi likha mil jata tha ki likhane vala praktar end gembal (Proctor & Gamble) ka CEO hai. harvard vishvavidyalay se rajanitishastr mein snatak rah chuke gurucharan das ki sabase mashhoor kitab India Unbound hai jo unhonne san 2000 mein likhi thi.

'kahani ek parivar ki' jo ki lekhak ka pahla upanyas hai, 1990 mein prakashit huaa. ye upanyas poorvi panjab mein rahane vale aur vibhajan ke samay bharat mein aane vale parivar ki kahani hai. angreji mein A Fine Family ke nam se chhapi is kitab ka hindi anuvad narendr saini, jo ki khud ek patrakar rah chuke hain, ne kiya hai.

upanyas shuruaat mein layalapur kasbe ke mashahoor vakil bauji ke vyaktitv ka parichay karata huaa unake parivar ke ird gird ghoomata hai, jabaki vibhajan ke bad ki gatha poori tarah unake pote arjun ki jindagi ki jaddojahad se judi hai. vibhajan par likhe any upanyason ki tarah ye upanyas bhi us ke poorv aur bad ki samajik aur rajanitik paristhitiyon ka aakalan karata hai. gurucharan das ne us vakt ki hindu aur muslim soch ko ubharane ki safal koshish ki hai.

par kahani kahane ka lekhak ka andaj behad niras aur ubaoo hai. kaee patr kahani ke sath chalate-chalate achanak se gayab ho jate hain. vaise to ye ek anuvad hai par lekhak ki bhasha bina kisi loch-lachak ke sidhi sapat hi chalati rahati hai. mujhe yakin hai ki ३९५ prshthon vali is kitab ko khatm karana aapake liye chunauti jaroor hoga. isaliye meri ray yahi hai ki 225 rupaye ki penguin india dvara prakashit is pustak par hath na hi dalein to behtar hai.

is chitthe par aap in pustakon ke bare mein bhi pad sakate hain

असंतोष के दिन, गुनाहों का देवता, कसप, गोरा, महाभोज, क्याप, एक इंच मुस्कान, लीला चिरंतन, क्षमा करना जीजी, मर्डरर की माँ, दो खिड़कियाँ, हमारा हिस्सा, मधुशाला,
मुझे चाँद चाहिए

Jayshankar Prasad's Tumul Kolahal from Kamayani sung beautifully by Asha Bhosle

Hindi sahitya ke itihaas mein ek yug ‘chhayavada’ ke naam se jana jata hai, jisake char bade maharathi the - Prasad, Nirala, Pant aur Mahadevi. satavin se lekar dasavin tak main in chhayavadi kaviyon ki kavitaon se bilkul ghabara jaya karata tha. shikshak chahe kitana bhi samajha lein, in kaviyon ki likhi panktiyon ki saprasang vyakhya karane aur bhavarth likhane mein hamare pasine chhoot jate the.Jayshankar Prasad ki pahali kavita jo dhyan mein aati hai vo thi beeti vibhavari jaag ri.... jo kuchh yoon shuru hoti thi

beeti vibhavari jaag ri!
ambar panaghat mein dubo rahi
tara ghat usha nagari
.

shikshak bade manoyog se ratri ke beet jane aur subah hone par nayika ke jagane ke aagrah ko tamam roopakon se vishleshit karate huye samajhate, par man ye manane ko taiyar na hota ki samany si baat raat ke jane aur pratahkal ki bela ke aane ke liye itna kuchh ghuma fira kar likhane ki jaroorat hai. vaise bhi ghar par subah na uth pane ke liye pitaji ki roz ki ulahana sunane ke baad kavi ke vicharon se man ka kahan samy sthapit ho pata ? vakt beeta, samajh badali. aur aaj jab is kavita ko kisi ke mukh se sunta hoon to khud man gunaguna uthta hai

khag kul-kul sa bol raha, kisalay ka anchal dol raha,
lo yah latika bhi bhar laee, madhu mukul naval ras gagari.
adharon mein raag amand piye, alakon mein malayaj band kiye
tu ab tak soyee hai aali, aankhon mein bhare vihag ri.
beeti vibhavari jag ri!



Aisi mohak panktiyan likhane vale Jayshankar prasad ji ki prshthabhoomi kya rahi ye janane ko aapaka man bhi utsuk hoga. jayshankar ji ke kavy sankalan par ek kitab sahity akadami ne chhapi thi. usake prakkathan mein vikhyat sahity samikshak Vishnu Prabhakar ji ne likha hai

"..........Jayshankar ji ka janm mat shulk dashami sanvat 1946 (san 1889) ke din kashi ke ek sampann aur yashasvi gharane mein huaa tha. jab pita ka dehavasan huaa, us samay prasad ki avastha keval gyarah varsh ki thi. kuchh hi varshon ke bhitar bade bhaee bhi paralok sidhar gaye aur solah varshiy kavi par samasyaon ka pahad aa toota. aarthik drshti se poori tarah jarjar ho chuki ek sanskari kul parivar ke lupt gaurav ke punaruddhar ki chunauti to munh baye samane khadi hi thi, jis parivar par antahin mukadamebaji, bhari karj ka bojha, svarthi aur akaranadrohi svajana, tathakathit shubhachintakon ki khokhali sahanubhooti ka vyangya...sabakuchh viparit hi viparit tha. koee aur hota to apani sari pratibha ko lekar is bojh ke niche chakanachoor ho gaya hota. kintu is pratikool paristhiti se joojhate huye prasad ji ne n keval kuchh varshon ke bhitar apane kutumb ki aarthik avastha srdrdh kar li, balki apani bauddhik-manasik sampatti ko bhi is vatyachakr se akshat ubar liya.

svayam jayashankar ji ne likha hai
ye manasik viplav prabho, jo ho rahe din rat hain
kuvichar kuron ke kathin kaise kutil aaghat hain
he nath mere sarathi ban jav manas-yuddh mein
fir to thaharane se bachenge ek bhi n viruddh mein.

yahi huaa bhi. jis gahare manovijnyan yatharthavad ki ninv par prasad ke jeevan krtitv ki poori imarat khadi hai, vah unaki vyaktigat jivani ki bhi buniyad hai. ghar-parivar vyavasthit kar lene ke bad hamare kavi ne apane antarjivan ki vyavastha bhi utani hi drdhata se samhali aur apani rachanatmak pratibha ke nirantar aur achook vikas kram se unhonne sahity jagat ko vismay mein dal diya.

dhire-dhire, lagabhag naamaloom dhang se unaki rachanayen sahity jagat mein gahare bhidati gaeen aur kya kavita, kya kahani, kya nataka, kya-chintan har kshetr mein khamir ki tarah roopantarit siddh hoti chali gaee. kisi ne unake bare mein likha hai ki prasad ka jo aantarit vyaktitv tha, vah lilapurush krshn ke darshan se prerana pata tha, aur unaka jo samajik vyaktitv tha, vah maryada purushottam ram ko apana aadarsh manata tha. nishchit hi prasad ji ke kavy ke pichhe jo jivan aur vyaktitv hai, usamein dhairy aur nissangata ki vipul kshamata rahi honi chahiye.

prasad ka vaishishty karuna aur anand ke atirikt jin do tatvon se prerit hai, ve hai unaka itihas-bodh aur aatm-bodha. pahali drshti mein paraspar virodhi lagate huye bhi ye donon chijen unake krtitv mein itane avichchhedy roop mein judi huee hain ki lagata hai, donon ka vikas do lagatar pas aati huee aur ant mein ek bindu par mil jane vali rekhaon ki tarah huaa. yah bindu nishchay hi ‘kamayani’ hai............."

usi 'kamayani' se liye gaye is ansh ko aasha ji ne behad surile andaj mein gaya hai. sangeet jayadev ka hai. . ye geet aasha jayadev ke elabam An Unforgettable Treat se liya gaya hai jo saregama par upalabdh hai. isi album mein mahadevi ji ka likha kaise unako paoon aali bhi hai .

mere khyal se kisi hindi kavi ki kavita ko itane adbhut roop mein kabhi svarabaddh nahin kiya gaya hai. bas lagata yahi hai ki prasad ke shabdon mein aasha jayadev ki jodi ne pran foonk diye hon. aasha hai aap ko bhi is madhur geet ko sunane mein utana hi aanand aayega jitana mujhe aata raha hai...




tumul kolahal kalah mein
main hraday ki bat re man

vikal hokar nity chanchal,
khojati jab nind ke pal,
chetana thak-si rahi tab,
main malay ki baat re man

chir-vishad-vilin man ki,
is vyatha ke timir-van ki
main usha-si jyoti-rekha,
kusum-vikasit prat re man

jahan maru-jvala dhadhakati,
chataki kan ko tarasati,
unhin jivan-ghatiyon ki,
main saras barasat re man

pavan ki prachir mein ruk
jala jivan ji raha jhuk,
is jhulasate vishv-din ki
main kusum-ritu-rat re man

chir nirasha niradhar se,
pratichchhayit ashru-sar mein,
madhup-mukhar marand-mukulit,
main sajal jalajat re man"

'Himalaya' a poem by Ramdhari Singh Dinkar

Pichhle hafte hamare daftar mein Ramadhari Singh 'Dinkar' ke janmashatabdi varsh ke upalakshy mein unaki kavitaon ka path karane ke liye ek sandhya chuni gayee thi. dinkar rashtakavi to the hi, hamari peedhi ko unhonne kishoravastha mein apani ojapoorn kavitaon se kalam ki takat ka andaja karavaya. aur yahi karan tha ki us shaam, hall ko bharane mein jyada waqt nahin laga. ham sabke samane, hamare ek sahityanuragi sahayogi ne dinkar ke kavya jeevan ka ek behad sanvedanashil jivan vrit khincha.

Maine is avasar par unaki kavita 'Himalaya' ka path kiya. ye kavita meri navin kaksha ki pathy pustak mein thi. mujhe yaad hai ki school mein jab bhi is kavita ko doharate the, kavita ka ant aate-aate dhamaniyon mein rakt pravah ki tivrata apane charam par pahunch jati thi.

Aaj jab is kavita ko dobara padata hoon to lagata hai fir is soye huye desh ko tandra se uthane ki jaroorat hai. bahari shaktiyon ki bat karen to kashmir se lekar arunachal tak jagah jagah dushman hamare is prahari kau apane pairo tale raundakar isaka apaman karate fir rahe hain . to vahin doosari or isase janmi nadiyan jo uttar ke maidanon ko sinchit aur urvar banati thin aaj apane pralay se janamanas ko lil rahi hain fir bhi ye yati chup hai,shant hai...

Chahe vo Jammu mein janata ka mahinon se ubalata aakrosh ho, ya orissa ki kanoonavihinata, ya fir 15 dinon se koshi mein aaee pralayakari baadh (floods) mein aam janata ke rote bilakhate chehre.... bharat mein rajanaitik aur prashasanik akarmanyata ka jo drshy dikhaee de raha hai vo vastav mein behad bhayavah hai. is drshti se dinkar ki ye panktiyan aur bhi prasangik ho gayee hain.

us punyabhoomi par aaj tapi !
re aan pada sankat karal
vyakul tere sut tadap rahe
dans rahe chaturdik vividh vyal
mere nagpati ! mere vishal
!

aaiye paden rashtra kavi dinkar ki ye kavita ...aur shapath lein ki desh ke ek sudhi nagarik ki haisiyat se ham in akarmany netaon aur prashasakon par ekajut hokar dabav banayen taki ve apane kartavyon se vimukh na hon aur sath hi sahayog den unake prayason ko safal banane mein..

mere nagpati ! mere vishal !

sakar divy gaurav virata,
paurush ke punjibhoot jvala!
meri janani ke him karit !
mere bharat ke divy bhal !
mere nagpati ! mere vishal !

yug yug ajeya, nirbandh mukt
yug yug garvonnata, nit mahan
nissim vyom mein tan raha
yug se kis mahima ka vitan
kaisi akhand ye chir samadhi ?
yativara! kaisa ye amar dhyan ?

tu mahashoony mein khoj raha
kis jatil samasya ka nidan ?
ulajhan ka kaisa vishamajal
mere nagpati ! mere vishal !

au maun tapasya lin yati
pal bhar ko to kar drganmesh
re jvalaon se dagdh vikal
hai tadap raha pad par svadesh

sukhasindhu , panchananda, brahmaputr
ganga yamuna ki amiy dhar
jis punyabhoomi ki or bahi
teri vigalit karuna udar

jisake dvaron par khada krant
simapati ! tu ne ki pukar
'pad dalit ise karana pichhe
pahale mera sir le utara.'

us punyabhoomi par aaj tapi !
re aan pada sankat karal
vyakul tere sut tadap rahe
dans rahe chaturdik vividh vyal
mere nagpati ! mere vishal !


kitani maniyan lut gaeen ? mita
kitana mera vaibhav ashesha!
tu dhyan magn hi raha; idhar
viran huaa pyara svadesh .

vaishali ke bhagnavashesh se
poochh lichchhavi shan kahan ?
o ri udas gandaki ! bata
vidyapati kavi ke gan kahan ?


tu tarun desh se poochh are
goonja kaisa yah dhvans rag
ambudhi antastal bich chhupi
yah sulag rahi hai kaun aag ?

prachi ke prangan bich dekh
jal raha svarn yug agnijval
tu sinhanad kar jag tapi
mere nagpati ! mere vishal !

re roka, yudhishthir ko na yahan
jane de unako svarg dheer
par fer hamein gandiv gada
lauta de arjun bhim veer

kah de shankar se aaj karen
ve pralay nrty fir ek bar
sare bharat mein goonj uthe
'har har bam' ka fir mahochchar
