चाँद और कवि

रात यों कहने लगा मुझसे गगन का चाँद,
आदमी भी क्या अनोखा जीव होता है!
उलझनें अपनी बनाकर आप ही फँसता,
और फिर बेचैन हो जगता, न सोता है।

जानता है तू कि मैं कितना पुराना हूँ?
मैं चुका हूँ देख मनु को जनमते-मरते
और लाखों बार तुझ-से पागलों को भी
चाँदनी में बैठ स्वप्नों पर सही करते।

आदमी का स्वप्न? है वह बुलबुला जल का
आज बनता और कल फिर फूट जाता है
किन्तु, फिर भी धन्य ठहरा आदमी ही तो?
बुलबुलों से खेलता, कविता बनाता है।

मैं न बोला किन्तु मेरी रागिनी बोली,
देख फिर से चाँद! मुझको जानता है तू?
स्वप्न मेरे बुलबुले हैं? है यही पानी?
आग को भी क्या नहीं पहचानता है तू?

मैं न वह जो स्वप्न पर केवल सही करते,
आग में उसको गला लोहा बनाता हूँ,
और उस पर नींव रखता हूँ नये घर की,
इस तरह दीवार फौलादी उठाता हूँ।

मनु नहीं, मनु-पुत्र है यह सामने, जिसकी
कल्पना की जीभ में भी धार होती है,
बाण ही होते विचारों के नहीं केवल,
स्वप्न के भी हाथ में तलवार होती है।

स्वर्ग के सम्राट को जाकर खबर कर दे-
रोज ही आकाश चढ़ते जा रहे हैं वे,
रोकिये, जैसे बने इन स्वप्नवालों को,
स्वर्ग की ही ओर बढ़ते आ रहे हैं वे।

  3. Someone had asked for Dinkar Ramdhari’s Shakti aur Kshama . I think it was a lady anmed Chadha.

    Here it is:
    क्षमा, दया, तप, त्याग, मनोबल
    सबका लिया सहारा
    पर नर व्याघ्र सुयोधन तुमसे
    कहो, कहाँ कब हारा ?

    क्षमाशील हो रिपु-समक्ष
    तुम हुये विनीत जितना ही
    दुष्ट कौरवों ने तुमको
    कायर समझा उतना ही।

    अत्याचार सहन करने का
    कुफल यही होता है
    पौरुष का आतंक मनुज
    कोमल होकर खोता है।

    क्षमा शोभती उस भुजंग को
    जिसके पास गरल हो
    उसको क्या जो दंतहीन
    विषरहित, विनीत, सरल हो ।

    तीन दिवस तक पंथ मांगते
    रघुपति सिन्धु किनारे,
    बैठे पढ़ते रहे छन्द
    अनुनय के प्यारे-प्यारे ।

    उत्तर में जब एक नाद भी
    उठा नहीं सागर से
    उठी अधीर धधक पौरुष की
    आग राम के शर से ।

    सिन्धु देह धर त्राहि-त्राहि
    करता आ गिरा शरण में
    चरण पूज दासता ग्रहण की
    बँधा मूढ़ बन्धन में।

    सच पूछो , तो शर में ही
    बसती है दीप्ति विनय की
    सन्धि-वचन संपूज्य उसी का
    जिसमें शक्ति विजय की ।

    सहनशीलता, क्षमा, दया को
    तभी पूजता जग है
    बल का दर्प चमकता उसके
    पीछे जब जगमग है।

  4. At St. Joseph’s Academy, Dehradun, we were prescribed good hindi books and read some famous hindi poets. A good one I remember is Ramdhari Singh Dinkar. Our teachers Chettri Sir and Chaturvedi Sir were outstanding. Chaturvedi’s sir knowledge of hockey was also outstanding……but thereby hangs another tale. I’m sure that one of my classmates ( 1966-1975) would remember and send their comments.
    Amazingly, I came across a beautiful website dedicated to hindi poetry lovers, which I would like to share with you – http://hindipoetry.wordpress.com. Do take out time to read the same.

  9. मत छुओ इस झील को;
    कंकडी मारो नही;
    फूल मत बोरो
    और कागज़ की तरी इ्समे नही छोडो
    खेल मे तुमको पुलक उन्मेष होता है
    लहर बनने मे सलिल को क्लेश होता है

  10. Hi! I am also a great fan of Hindi poetry and I read aloud/or recite on days I am feeling low and it is an instant perk up! I remember the line from one of Dinkar’s poems: Irsha tu na gayi mere man se. I don’t know which poem this was but if any of you can have it sent to me that would be just great.

    I feel Hindi poems and full of passions/emotions and they come alive/inspire( Rongte ko chu jaati hai). My favourite is Mochiram and the other one is Himmat Karne Walon Ki Haar Nahin Hoti

    “तो देदो केवल पाँच ग्राम
    रखो अपनी धरती तमाम
    हम वहीँ खुशी से खाएँगे
    परिजन पर असि न उठाएँगे
    दुर्योधन वह भी दे ना सका
    आशीष समाज की ले ना सका
    उल्टे हरि को बाँधने चला
    जो था असाध्य साधने चला
    डगमग डगमग दिग्गज डोले
    भगवान कुपित होकर बोले. . .”

    main bahut samaya se talash rahi hoon par ab tak nahi mili. agar aap de saken to aabhari rahoongi.

  14. Friends ,
    I have translated few verses from the sixth chapter of Krukshetra. I wish to know how bad it is.

    ” The hasty growth of the human
    Has earned a never before charm.
    Below his feet the earth lies common
    And the sky settled in his palm.

    I very much regret to say
    His brain alone has bloomed a lot
    Man has traveled long in his way
    Leaving behind the land of heart.

    Man creates a new thing each day
    Celebrates a fair of wisdom.
    But the gods groan in dismay
    Feeling a pain in their bosom.

    Gods long for the love of the heart
    Not the wisdom alone to greet.
    Something like cheese, silky and soft
    That would melt soon, when gets the heat.

    Few fragrant flowers they need
    In the burning grove of being.
    In the desert of knowledge indeed
    A swelling stream of smooth feeling.”

    I have a copy of Jaydradh vadh. I could send by post.
