एक दिवाली ऐसी भी

बाहर देखो कितना सुन्दर है सब
रंग, रौशनी और ख़ुशी में सरोबार हें सब।
पर क्यूँ आज याद है मुझे
वो माँ के घर का प्यार
सारे घर में सिर्फ एक ही आवाज़
“दिशा, रंगोली बन गई?”
“दिशा, पूजा सजा ली?”।
घर मानो हो जाता था चिड़िया घर
सबलोग सब कुछ बोल रहे लेकिन आवाज़ ना पड़ती कानो पर।
रसोई से पकवानो की खुशबु,
गुजिया, नमकीन,गुलाबजामुन बस रह ना जाए कुछ।
सारे घर का रोशन होना
कहीं बिजली तो कहीं फूलों का कोना।
फिर आती शाम की बारी
देखो ,माँ रंगोली कितनी सुन्दर उतारी
कितने खीले हुए हैं सब
हंसी,ठिठोली क्यूँ ना करें अब।
पठाके जो बज़े,  सुतली , लड़ी , अनार भी पीछे ना रहे
ये देखो राकेट उड़ा,
कहीं तुम्हारी कमीज़ में तोह नहीं घुसा??
आज फिर वही दिवाली है,
लेकिन क्यूँ मन भारी है?
जो अपने थे ,कभी पास थे वोह पता नहीं चले गए कहाँ,
माँ के हाथ की गुजिया खो गई कहाँ।
माँ तो में भी हूँ ,
पर मेरी माँ की गोद में सर रखती हूँ।
इतना क्यूँ याद आता है सब,
वोह खुशबु,वो रंग,वो हर एक पल।
बस … एक दिवाली ऐसी भी।।।

Love or hate: A feeling so deep


Love or hate,like or dislike, compassion or harshness…No no I am teaching opposites here . But the feelings are two sides of the same coin.
A human mind will always flex towards love, attention and the feeling of being wanted. WAIT!!! Why only human… Even animals. Anyone.. Or any living being will show this attribute.
It’s a beautiful feeling to be in love or a feeling that says, “I need you”. It’s a magical world all together. All of a sudden Shahrukh Khan running to simran in beautiful yellow fields can be visualized . The melodious violin , Jagjit Singhs, and MLTR becomes the first favorite . So much of positive energy flows around . The dislikes changes into likes and the world around looks like a dream. Ah!!! What a state to be in. Love and to be loved – always.
But then, THUUDD… Oooopsss..what was that!!! It was a reality check which actually bites.
Better touch the ground and make your feet go firm. No one will love, invest, show interest, have fun , listen or even talk without a selfish motive. Yes, it’s THE TRUTH. Few know it before hand while few learn a hard way. Again we have categories here.
Those who know are pretenders and opportunistic. Their feelings are only to curb their innate desire and they are unperturbed like a rock. Your follow ups, calls, keenness to meet are turned a deaf year as their purpose is solved and they are not bothered or affected by anything but

them self only .

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

Marilyn Monroe

Then comes the category of IDIOTS. Trust me .. the most dumb headed, over emotional fools, seeking goodness in everything. For such category , a little appreciation, kindness, love , attention is beyond happiness. This feeling is a realm of bliss. This category can be used , fooled , ditched , ignored , kicked and pushed aside easily . But again as I say “IDIOTS” and as per oxford IDIOT means  id·i·ot


1. A foolish or stupid person.

So, this person has the capability to return back to the first category easily.
But some how I feel, wouldn’t world be a better place if we have people of second category around?
Yes, of course!! Imagine.. You get angry and the other person comes smiling to you.
You ignored the presence of your companion and he/she comes hugging you.
You remain silent for days and in return you get the best kiss!!!

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

Martin Luther King Jr.

There’s so much joy in giving than only taking.
There’s so much happiness in loving than hating.
There’s is so much smile in hugging than kicking.
There’s so much beauty in appreciating than complaining.
There’s so much love in waiting than giving up.
That’s so much depth in holding hands than shrugging them off.
There’s always so much satiation in loving than just ignoring.
