6. होता


पंछी को पिंजरे में रखना, जो प्यार होता,
मीठी हर छुरी पर फिर मुझे ऐतबार होता,

भूल जो जाता गम अपने कोई यहाँ आकर,
ऐसे हर इंसान से, फिर मेरा करार होता,  

होते जो दुनिया बदल देने के बीज यहाँ, 
ऐसे पौधों से भरा बाग, मेरा शृंगार होता, 

बसा सकता जो मैं शहर अपना कही भी,
उस शहर में ना कभी, पीठ पर वार होता, 

नज़रे उठाने की हिम्मत जो होती उसकी,
वो शैतान, नगरी में हमेशा, शर्मसार होता, 

जो पता होता दुनिया होती है ऐसी 'साथी',
यहाँ आने से पहले, मैं पक्का फरार होता  ||

A transformation,
Colourless to colourful,
That was just a tear

8. नही ठहरते


कुछ लम्हें ठहर जाते है, केवल इंसान नही ठहरते,
रुक जाती है साँसे अक्सर पर विमान नही ठहरते,

मैं तो हूँ बंजारा, ना इश्क़ करता हूँ, ना ही नफ़रत,
खो जाती है मंज़िलें, पर जो है महान, नही ठहरते,

समझने मे ज़ाया ना करो वक़्त, बस चलते चलो,
कहते है बड़ी होती है जिनकी ज़ुबान, नही ठहरते,   

हिम्मत का तोहफा नही देता खुदा हर किसी को,
तूफान में बंद कर देते है जो दुकान, नही ठहरते, 

मैं खुद से ही इश्क़ ना कर पाया अब तलक ‘साथी’,
कर जाते है कुछ पलों में इश्क़ जो, नही ठहरते ||

9. दोराह


मैं उससे कह ना पाया,
वो मुझसे कह ना पायी,
बीत गये लम्हे इंतज़ार में,
ना बुझी प्यास, ना अग्न लगाई, 

अधूरे हो तुम, अधूरा हूँ मैं,
पर ज़िंदगी पूरी होती है,
बह जाओ लहरो संग तुम,
बर्बादी, सुंदर हो भी रोती है,

पर फिर भी शांत ही हूँ मैं,
तुम भी शायद ऐसी ही हो,
मैं भी बदल ना पाया खुद को,
शायद तुम भी वैसी ही हो,

इसलिए छोड़ दिया है अब,
इस कशमकश को दो राहों में,
वक़्त ही शायद करेगा फ़ैसला,

बाहों में होंगे या मिलेंगे आहों में ||

10. World of sighs


I whispered a wish,
Into the subconscious mind,
The universe obeyed,
Tried to become kind,

I woke up in the middle,
Of a musical treat,
Mind was awestruck,
Heart enjoyed the beat,

Oh! Where am I?
My thoughts were jumbled,
Notes were kissing ears,
But the mind was scrambled,

I ran towards the street,
There was no sign of tears,
Green animals were waving,
Colorless souls were without fears,

My heart was giggling,
Mind was still wary,
Since when we had become innocent,
This is so scary,

I passed by a shop,
And checked my pocket,
Money was missing,
Sighs on the rocket,

Take this Oh Man!,
A voice struck my ear,
You are looking so tired,
Have water without fear,

I am thirsty friend, but,
I have nothing to pay,
He gave me a bottle & said,
If you wish, you can stay,

I ran in disbelief,
Innocence is so suspicious,
Oh! Where I am God?
This reality is so vicious,

My head banged into a pole,
Went flat to the ground,
People came rushing,
An ambulance’s sound,

Hospitals were so silent,
No hue and cry around,
I grasped the abnormality,
The severity knew no bound,

Hoping for the best,
I closed my eyes
With a faint sound I realized,
I was back, in the world of sighs.

11. स्वाद


दो पल की ज़िंदगी में, एक तकरार का,
दूजा जो रह गया, वो पल है इकरार का,

कैसे कह दूं मैं, कि इश्क़ है मुझको तुमसे,
दुनिया का डर नही, डर है तो इनकार का,

ढूँढे मेरी अखियाँ, तेरे रूप की छाया हर्सू,
 कैसे उतारू क़र्ज़, तेरी पायल की झंकार का  

बाँधा है खुद को मैने, जुदाई के पल में,
ज़हर पिया ना जाए, अब तेरे इंतज़ार का,

गले से लगा बस, मुझको एक बार 'साथी' 
                     स्वाद मैं भी तो चख लू, अपने प्यार का || Dr. DV ||

12. बस यूँ ही

शाखा से टूटकर जो गिरा था,
बहुत ही बदनसीब था वो पत्ता,

माँ की माला का हिस्सा ना बना ||   



अंधेरे की चादर ओढ़े वो सोया था,
एक सवेरा जो खुद से था अंजान,

हक़ीक़त से सपनो तक का सफ़र || 



किसी को पैसा चाहिए, किसी को आज़ादी चाहिए,
किसी को शांति चाहिए, किसी को आबादी चाहिए || 



बहुत दिनो से कहना था,
पर कभी मौका ना मिला,

दोस्त कैसे, दुश्मन बना ||

13. खबर


कुछ पत्ते ज़मीन को सजाए थे,
कुछ पत्ते आसमान को भाए थे,

इतनी थी दूरी तेरे मेरे दरमिया,
जितने इस चाँद ने दाग पाए थे,

थी पराकाष्ठा एहसासो की ऐसी,
दिन मे भी मैने दीप जलाए थे,

शायद डर था तुझे खो जाने का,
इसलिए मैने सब सपने मिटाए थे,

पर कहाँ थी खबर ये मुझको 'साथी'
इश्क़ ने कांटें मेरे लिए बचाए थे || Dr. DV ||

14. यकीन है


मेरे रास्तें, मेरी मज़िले, सब इश्क़ के अधीन है,
जो रहता है, मेरी रूह में,वो अक्स ही हसीन है,

ना आसमान है मेरा, ना है कोई समाज़ अब,
बस इश्क़ का, एहसास है, एहसास की ज़मीन है,

खबर नही, है आज की, ना अब कोई है वास्ता, 
यह रोम रोम है मेरा, तेरे ध्यान मे ही लीन है,

मेरी इश्क़ की ज़ुबान को ,वो कह रहे है बावरा
यूँ सो रहा हूँ बेहिचक, हवा की बस ढकीन है,

हुआ तेरा यूँ 'साथी' अब, जो आँखो से यूँ छू लिया, 
          खबर तुझे है इश्क़ की, बस यह मुझे यकीन है || Dr. DV ||

15. बातें


सिखाना केवल काम है,
परमेश्वर अब आराम है

सब कुछ जानते है वो,
पर करने को नाकाम है,

दर्द का एहसास है उनको,
हँसी का ना कोई नाम है,

दुनिया बदलने की है आशा,
संग चलना परंतु हराम है,

पूछे जो उनसे हम रास्ता,
कहते है हम तो 'आम' है,
अमीर ही करेंगे सब 'साथी'
कुछ ऐसा तकिया कलाम है || Dr. DV ||

16. Lost My Way


In search of my identity,
I’ve lost my way,
In search of the sanity,
I’ve lost my way,

In the misleading fog,
In the hope of a ray,
In behest of the smog,
I’ve lost my way,

Crushing the flowers,
Ruining the day,
In search of the towers,
I’ve lost my way,

In the battle of thoughts,
No time to play,
In the hunt of plots,
I’ve lost my way,

I’m defying the laws,
No smile at the bay ,
No power in my claws,
I’ve lost my way,

In the hope of unity,
I’ve lost my way,
No human, No trinity,
I’ve lost my way.

17. दिखावा

कुछ एहसास मेरे कहते चले,
हम यूँ बरसों से, सहते चले,

मेरे अश्क भी निकले बेवफा,
ना चाहते हुए भी बहते चले,

बाँधे थे जो पुल विश्वाश के,
पैसो के बोझ से ढहते चले,

दिखाने ज़िंदगी का अर्थ 'साथी',
वो कब्रिस्तान में, रहते चले ||

18. I think about you


Every time I think about the change,
I think about you,
Every time I see someone strange,
I think about you,

Every time moon hides behind the clouds,
I think about you,
Every time when blindness shrouds,
I think about you,

Every time when it rains,
I think about you,
Every time when something pains,
I think about you,

Every time when I swear & dare,
I think about you,
Every time when I hear about care,
I think about you,

Every time when a tear rolls down,
I think about you,
Every time when no one is in town,
I think about you,

Every time when I reach so early,
I think about you,
Every time I see something curly,
I think about you,

Every time when I touch the dew,
I think about you,
Every time when I think something new,
I think about you.

19. ना दो


मेरे संगीत को तुम, नाम ना दो,
थक गया हूँ बहुत , काम ना दो,

इश्क़ ने किया है मुझको पागल,
इन हाथो में मेरे अब जाम ना दो,

बंद कमरो से जिन्हे दिखे दुनिया,
उनके इरादो को तुम बाम ना दो,

समझे ना जो खुश्बू इस जहाँ की,
ऐसे फूलो को तुम गुलफाम ना दो,

फौलादी इरादो से बने हो जो इन्सा,
उनकी बातों पर तुम विराम ना दो,

रखे जो दुनिया बदलने की हिम्मत,
ऐसे विचारो को अब आराम ना दो,

चल ना सके एक कदम भी साथ,
ऐसे ग़द्दारों को तुम, धाम ना दो,

इंसानियत से जिए यहाँ जो 'साथी',
ऐसे सितारो को तुम कोहराम ना दो || Dr. DV ||

20. समझदार


कुछ लोग इतने समझदार है,
जो उनकी ना माने गद्दार है,

बिन जाने बना डालेंगे पुल,
बातें उनकी जैसे मझदार है,

करने को समय नही है पास,
बोलें वो ऐसे जैसे ललकार है,

पुल बाँधने की ना है हिम्मत,,
नसीहतें पास उनके आपार है,

टूट चुके है पूरे, अंदर से देखो,
पर बोलने को वो, बेकरार है,

बातें करते है बढ़ने की आगे,
कदम जो उठाए, वो बेकार है,

करते हर बात का वो विरोध,
चुनी गयी ना उनकी सरकार है

मिर्ची की रखे ढेलिया वो 'साथी',
ज़ख़्मों का उनको. इंतज़ार है || Dr. DV ||

21. दो पंक्तियाँ

टूटे सपनो के टुकड़े लेकर, मैं सो गया  
प्यारी सी ज़िंदगी, आँसुओं में धो गया ||   


मेरे इंतज़ार में वो, दुनिया से छन गयी 
मैं नही पहुँचा, वो भोली, चाँद बन गयी ||  


अभी तो रात का, आख़िरी पहर आया है,
तुम समझे साहिल, मैने लहर को पाया है ||


लिखते-लिखते वो कवि, कविता लिख गया,
बूँद-बूँद जोड़ा उसने और सरिता लिख गया || 


मुझसे ना पूछो तुम अब, मेरा हाल 'ए साथी',
खुद की बर्बादी की दास्तान, सुनाई नही जाती ||

22. विचार



आज फिर से वही बात हुई,
दिन सोचा था पर रात हुई,

दोस्त समझा था जिसको,
बोला, क्या तेरी औकात हुई, 

मददगार इंसानियत जो ढूंढी,
ना समझा, क्या जात हुई,   

जब गुजरा था अंधेरो से मैं, 
वो मेहनत, मेरी सौगात हुई, 

भगवान सा निकला वो 'साथी',
जाने कैसे उससे मुलाकात हुई ||

24. Our Web of Nothingness

The only thing that is constant is ‘Change’. But do we want change? Aren’t we webbed by the nothingness in so many ways? Aren’t we lost the capability of being a problem solver and gained the persona of an immature activist that leads nowhere.

This blog is not for intellectuals, but for an average individual who understand a few things. As a citizen and a silent spectator of my own country, I have been through the technological and social revolution. I have seen telephones, pagers and mobiles. I have seen television and computers. I have seen cycles, cars, metro, education system and so many things changing. Yet I stand here today, realizing, we are still at the same place with regards to accepting or testing a solution. As internet opened up the million ways of absorbing knowledge, it also has given us, as individuals, a million paths to choose to paint the sky. On the other hand it also has given us a million reasons to divide.  

As we move up the ladder, the irony too climbs upward. With the power to affect million people, I also get the power to gain the wrath. As an individual it sounds thrilling, but as a leader it is the worst situation. Counting problems are so easy. If you stand at a tea stall, you will find people painting the sorry picture of the current affairs.

In a much deeper what problem we might be facing? Does it has to go with our beliefs or the force outside?

These genuine questions can be answered through the web of nothingness. Web of nothingness is a simple term that means we are messed up within ourselves so much that the resultant becomes null and void.

Anti Corruption Movement, Rape capital issue and now Demonitisation, these three major issues have happened in front of us and when I am at that sort of age where I can sync with the subject.
India Against Corruption was a move hailed by many, Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejrivaal and Kiren Bedi were the front runner instilling faith in many, of the brighter India. After a short span, the Crusaders split into parties. AAP cashed on the opportunity and tried to convince people for the change. The change started, but it got deviated. The ‘rape free’ city was promised and after the win there was not a single discussion/news or any sort of such thing happening in the capital and instead started the same old ‘blame game’. While capital burned in the same hope of change, Narendra Modi became PM, again hailed by a majority of people. With lots of people in the hope of change, the demon of ‘Demonetization’ again seems to divide people. While Demonetization has been a move taken not just by the government, but, also the RBI and so many intellectual brains behind it. Changing a leader is not a problem. We can do it after every 5 years or even in between.

So what is the Problem? BJP? AAP? Congress? Industrialists? The neighbor? God? Demons? Robber?

To be blunt, the problem is ‘We’the divided people. People those who approves crossing the red signal without helmet, giving an example of a politician. People who bribe a Gaswaala to give them more gas cylinders saying that rich people get. It seems as if they are mocking their own hope of change. For example, cleanliness drive? Is it indeed required? Few things are so obvious that it seems a bit odd when we discussing about them. Cleanliness is everyone’s need and want. We all clean our homes or places we stay/work. Yet if someone has to remind me of cleanliness isn’t it weird? This weird thing is real. People throw packets, spit and throw garbage in roads and when someone spills water on their table, they will go nuts.

Similarly, choosing a leader is an easy thing. Wake up, go to electoral booth, push the button and repeat after a certain time period. That’s it. Difficult is to support the move and re-evaluate it at the end to execute it better next time. Analyzing a situation is again an important aspect, but taking the decision, implementing it and supporting, are few major step. Even if one fails miserably, there will be something to learn, not only for the one who implemented, but also for the one who become a part of it.  While we try to blame others for our discomforts, we fall flat on our faces in terms of doing anything countable.

We are still not from inside, ready for a change. The change means a lot rather than just discussing. A small change in sleeping schedule of an individual affects a lot, then for a country it is actually uncountable. Improvisations are the only solutions that can help us and yet the support is needed indeed. Even for corporations, there is a Business Plan, a Latest Plan and then the Actual State of affairs.

It is fancy nowadays to speak about black money, joblessness, poverty, education system, dowry etc, but close to impossible to manage ourselves to solve any problem. It has become our habit, to make someone else accountable for our problems and play the blame game. If we have already assumed that nothing can become right, then there should be no hue and cry. If we believe otherwise, then we should support something wholeheartedly, give it ample time and then move on to the next option.
But because of too much dependency, lack of self awareness, lack of unity and useless aggression, we choose the war of words based on our choices rather than the solutions. We divide ourselves in so many parts that the resultant becomes zero and we remain in the web of nothingness.

To come out of it. Firstly, we have to stop demeaning each other, we should give time to any action and then act in sync to find another solution. Once we correct ourselves, it would not take any effort to correct others because we don’t have to do that. Secondly, we have to identify our power of doing good and spread these activities around.


As a citizen of my country, I hope we all would come out of this ‘Web of Nothingness’ and add up the good deeds to grow exponentially.

25. दो पंक्तियाँ

तेरा मेरा साथ, बस एक पल का था,
इश्क़ में विश्वास, बस एक पल का था || 


जब हार के एहसास से तूने, मैदान छोड़ा था,
दो पल बाद दुश्मन ने, अपना हौसला तोड़ा था


जिस कब्र में देख, मेरा दर था,
उससे दो कदम मे, तेरा घर था || 



जो कल तक खुद को ग़रीब बोलते थे,
नोटबंदी में अब दर्द की दुहाई दे रहे है ||



बोलने को बहुत लोग आगे आए,
करने को वो आज भी पीछे रहे ||



फ़ैसला करने का हक़, तुझको है,
संग ना चलने का हक़, मुझको है ||



रास्तों को गुनगुनातें, जब देखा मैने,
मंज़िल से दूरी का भय, फेंका मैने ||  



रास्तों को गुनगुनातें, जब देखा मैने,
मंज़िल से दूरी का भय, फेंका मैने ||


  
कल जो गले लगाने को आए,
आज नज़रे मिलाने को कतराए  ||
