क्या गलत है?


















क्या गलत है जो बिरजू घर-घर भीख मांगता है.
जब भूख लगती है ,तो  दिल बिलखता  है.                                       
महंगाई की मार में, सिर्फ बचपन बिकता है
क्या गलत है जो वो  मासूम ,यूँ दर-दर फिरता है |

क्या गलत है जो अब्दुल चोरी करता है
गरीबी की आग में ईमान झुलसता है
बहन हुई है तीस की ,बाप दहेज़ के लिए फिरता है
क्या गलत है जो अब्दुल चोरी करता है |

क्या गलत है जो कश्मीर में बच्चा ,बन्दूक उठाता है
तो क्या हुआ,कि गोलियों की आवाज़ से वो डर-डर जाता है.
वो नन्हा परिंदा अपने घर में आज़ादी चाहता है
क्या गलत है जो उसकी आँखों में ,खून उतर आता है |

क्या गलत है जो अफज़ल आतंक फैलाता है
मासूम इक दिल पत्थर बन जाता है.
है कौन वो जो उसकी 'आत्मा' मरवाता है
अफज़ल की क्या गलती , वो 'आतंक' फैलाता है |

क्या गलत है कि इक माँ ,बेटी का गला दबाती है
जमाने के दस्तूरों पर,उसकी चिता जलाती है
समाज उन्हें वैसे भी जीने ना देगा
बोलो,क्या गलत है.........................

गलत ये नहीं हैं
गलत वो हैं जो सत्ता पाने के बाद,कर्त्तव्य भूल जाते हैं
गलत वो हैं जो सिर्फ,अपना स्वार्थ साधते हैं|
गलत वो हैं जो निर्दोषों का शोषण करते हैं,
गलत वो हैं जो कुरीतियों का पोषण करते हैं|
गलत कहीं न कहीं,हालात भी हैं
गलत थोड़े हम, थोड़े आप भी हैं!!!

  5. Duniya hai duniya chalti rahegi har pal
    Apna thoda saa Naam kar jayen hum
    Iik Aaj hai hath hamare kuchh kar gujarane ko
    Toh chalo aaj kuchh toh achha kar jayen hum..

    Saumaya.. think it over.. no one is wrong no one is right.. every body lives from his or her own level of understanding..developed by pickings through out the life.. now depends where you are and with whom you are.. one has to be lucky..that's it..you have penned it so well.. God bless you!

  6. A good write indeed, although I don't subscribe to underlying proposition at all. These are the things which are actually happening, but they can NEVER be justified. My view is that, if we think deeply, all these problems have religions and castes as their root. You are portraying what most of the Birju, Abdul and Afjal feel and justify themselves with, which is not the solution.

  7. What a post....So you like to have your point.
    Nothing wrong in it. On the other hand it's great.

    Ramesh sir is right. I also have these kinds of views.

    By the way Somya ji ....It's really mind blowing post.(Of course..according to me)

  12. wow what a post dear? really impressed with this one.. People do need change their thinking and it's not about right and wrong.. it's about living a life that God gave you not all the people have nice life or rich life.. If people do stuff to feed their family.. i think they are doing what they suppose to do...! As long as they dont take advantage of the situation.

  15. Teesre para mein kashmiri kisse ajadi chate hain, aatankwad se? to desh ke against bandook uthana shayad najayaj hoga, bandook to atankwad ke against na uthni chahiye. Agar aapne ise Military ke jawano dwara kiye ja rahe atyachar ke liye likha hai to shayad unka gussa sarkar ke against sahi hai.

    Sorry but I have no sympathy for Afjal. It is all about choices and what you choose. I do not believe in minority cards also, because I see how these corrupt politicians came to defend Dinakaran on minority card. To appease muslims these politicians can let go a terrorist. Again you might have your own opinion about the trial.

    A crime done to fulfill your basic needs (of food) could be justified (like prostitution, which I do not consider as crime) but not the choices you make because someone brainwashed you. every terrorist is brainwashed (like Kasab) otherwise a common man does not decide to go on killing people without motive.

  18. soch to bahut zyaada sahi hai,seriously we need more and more of youth to be thinking along these lines....

    but again as my tendancy is lets discusss some of these issues on a practical level...
    Kashmir issue- I am strongly in favour of granting a seperate identity to kashmir...apne bachon ke bandook uthane ki jo bat ki wo tab tak solve ho hi nahi sakti jab tak aisa na kiyaa jaaye...long run me this may help,even if shirt run me is issue ko politicise kiyaa jaaye
    Gareebi etc : do you favour reservation??..it is like a fashion to speak against reservation widout understandin wat d plight of sc and st are in d country... 1% of SC females in our country are graduates...so wen u have reservations for females or scs u know y it is so much reqd!!

    the point is y do talk about certain issues with utmost concern but are somehow nt willing enough to accept the solutions which actually will work...

  22. beautiful poem :-))..u r rite..thode galat hum bhi thoda aap bhi :)..but problem is that every human is blind for their own faults :-)

  23. @Ramesh ji:
    1."no one is wrong no one is right".--I disagree -people who do caste discrimination,people who take bribe,people who demand dowry etc etc are definitely wrong.

    2."every body lives from his or her own level of understanding."--I'm sorry I again disagree...how could we expect "understanding" from an orphan who could not even manage to eat twice a day or from a poor boy (of say some 20) whose sister is not getting married coz of the dowry issue and the "society" is making their life hell out of it....It's easy to say that way...but it's far difficult to act accordingly.

    3."now depends where you are and with whom you are.. one has to be lucky."...I completely agree...if Afzal was not a kashmiri he would not have been in jail...luck factor is always there...but does that mean -be a mere spectator of whole tamasha...and do nothing?

    4."you have penned it so well.. God bless you!" thank you so much...I respect your words!

  24. @Ambuj:I'm not at all justifying these acts...be it begging,robbery or terrorism....I'm just trying to say that these birju,abdul and afzal are not completely responsible for their acts...it is the people in power,the society and circumstances too...they are directly or indirectly forced...so instead of looking down upon them try to destroy the root...

    Do you really think hanging Afazal or Kasab will solve the terrorism problem anyhow...or that it will scare (even a bit)the people who are actually behind all this?

    Terrorism , casteism , corruption are so much into the veins of society that it cannot be treated at grassroot level...they can only be erradicated or lessened starting from the TOP only.

  29. @Anand: As I said it's easy for you and me to say "desh ke against bandook uthana shayad najayaj hoga, bandook to atankwad ke against na uthni chahiye" coz we are not kashmiris...they almost daily face bombs and bullets and the atrocities of the local police...it's tough .

    You talk of choices...they are again influenced by people around us and the circumstances.

    As far as afzal is concerned read this

  30. @Pyasa Sajal: I'm glad you supported my view...

    Well I believe when we talk of erradicating casteism and communalism ,the concept of reservations does not come in between.It should be done away with along with the former.

  36. गलत हैं हम जो इन्हें सत्ता में बुलाते हैं,
    गलत हैं हम जो इन्हें सर आँखों पर बैठाते हैं,
    आस्तीन में सांप पालने पर भी सबक न ले पाएं हम,
    तो सर्प भी फन उठाएं तो क्या गलत है?
