नई शुरूआत

Or new beginning is what the title of this blog means. It’s actually not a blog, but a poem. It’s unique because it’s after long that I have written something in Hindi ( or Hindustani as I prefer to call it, being interspersed with Urdu words), but like all my blogs, the language is immaterial as this too represents deeply entrenched feeling in my heart.

We have had elections and decisive mandate, Government took decisive action on certain matters of National importance, we seem to be reaching the end of Ramjanmabhoomi- Babri Masjid issue, Economy is in the throes of worldwide recession, but expected to pick up, rains have been widespread and bountiful and I can go on and on. Yet there’s that feeling of uncertainty of an impending crisis waiting ; a discomfort of all being not well ; a lurking fear of an impending disaster or calamity ! Fortunately, we are a strong self dependent nation and this is just an apprehension. It’s eminently beatable as the solution doesn’t lie elsewhere, but in our own attitude towards life and our fellow citizens. The need is to build bridge of mutual trust and faith.

The poem reads:

नई शुरूआत

सब कुछ ठीक ठाक है,

पर लगता है कुछ ठीक नहीं;

सब कुछ वैसे ही चल रहा है,

पर दिलों में इक टीस है कही ।

सब बिक रहा है,

लोग सब ख़रीद रहे हैं;

बारिशें भी खूब हुईं,

दुख लगते हैं कट से रहे हैं!

पहले सी ही दीवाली, होली और ईद लगती है,

हमेशा की तरह ख़ुशी भी वैसी ही जगती है;

फिर भी कुछ तो कमी सी लगती है,

सभी वैसी हैं, पर वैसी नहीं लगती है!

ज़रूरत है दिलों को साफ़ करने की,

पुरानी बातें भूलकर माफ़ करने की;

दिलों में फिर से मुहब्बत भरकर,

एक नई शुरूआत करने की!!!

This is a piece from my heart, being a well wisher of our great country, its heritage and its ethos.
