'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
