Kul shahar badahavas hai is tej dhoop mein : Gopal Das Neeraj

Chunavon ke charan dar charan khatm hote ja rahe hain. par naksaliyon ke aatank se jyada soory devata hi apana raudr roop dikhalakar matadataon ko bahar nikalane se rok rahe hain. may mahina shuru hone ke pahale hi garmi ye rang dikhayegi isaki shayad chunav aayog ne bhi kalpana nahin ki hogi. apani kahoon to is jalati tapati garmi mein ghar ya office ke andar dubake rahane ki ichchha hoti hai. fir bhi khane ke samay scooter par bitaye vo das minute hi aag sadrish bahati lapaton se samana kara dete hain.

aise mein agar aur bhi garm ilakon ka daura karana pade to isase badakismati kya hogi. par pichhale hafte karyalay ke kam se chhattisagadh, jharkhand aur orrisa ke garmi se buri tarah jhulasate ilakon se hokar gujarana pada. raste bhar khidaki ki shishe se sunasan kheton aur sadakon ka najara dikhata raha.

pani ki talash mein subah se hi matakiyan bhar kar le jati auratein hon ya ganv ki kachchi sadakon par cycle se school jate bachche sab ke sab mausam ki is mar se trast dikhe. kam se kam ham logon ko to karyalay ka vatanukoolit vatavaran garmi se rahat dila deta hai, par jinhen do vakt ki roti jugadane aur rojamarra ke kamon ke liye bahar nikalana hi hai unake liye is dhoop ko jhelane ke aalava aur chara hi kya hai.

mujhe yad aati hai gopal das 'neeraj' ji ek ek hindi ghazal jo garmi ki is tivr dhoop se jhulasate huye ek din ke halaton ko bakhoobi apani panktiyon mein sametati hai. aap bhi pade ye ghazal jisamein Neeraj garmi se badahavas shahar ki vyatha chitrit karate karate apane samaj ki aarthik vishamata ko bhi rekhankit kar gaye hain...

kul shahar badahavas hai is tej dhoop mein
har shakhs zinda lash hai is tej dhoop mein

hare thake musafiron aavaj do unhen
jal ki jinhen talash hai is tej dhoop mein

duniya ke amano chain ke dushman hain vahi to
ab chhanv jinake pas hai is tej dhoop mein

nangi harek shakh harek fool hai yatim
fir bhi sukhi palash hai is tej dhoop mein

pani sab apana pi gaee khud har koee nadi
kaisi ajib pyas hai is tej dhoop mein

bitegi han bitegi dukh ki ghadi jaroor
neeraj tu kya udas hai is tej dhoop mein
