HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY !

“एक स्त्री”

जब बच्चों की नादानियाँ न थम रहे हों,
बापू की डाँट से बचने को वो सहम रहे हों,
तब ममता की छाव लिए जो पास आये, एक स्त्री।

जब चंदू खूब शैतानियां ढा रहा हो,
अपने बंधु से ही हाथापाई कर आ रहा हो,
तब पड़ोस की आंटी से जो बचाये, एक स्त्री।

जब खिलौनों की मनसा मन ही मन उमड़ रही हो,
स्वाती अपने भाई से माँगने को लड़ रही हो,
तब इक खिलौना नया जो पास लाये, एक स्त्री।

जब स्कूल का कार्य अधूरा रह रहा हो,
मास्टर रोज़-रोज़ शिकायतें कर रहा हो,
तब एक अध्यापिका जो घर-घर हम पाएं, एक स्त्री।

जब राखी का पर्व मिठाईयां ला रहा हो,
चंदू, स्वाती से स्नेह बंधवा रहा हो,
तब उसे फ़र्ज़ का पाठ जो पढ़ाये, एक स्त्री।

जब चंदू जवानी का पायदान चढ़ रहा हो,
और लड़का-लड़की में फर्क समझ रहा हो,
तब दोनों…

ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

It has always been a controversial social issue whether death penalty is a need or not for any crime.

I have little personal views on this topic. At present we have this provision for heinous crimes when the convicts under trial are found guilty of the crime.

We need to think how liberal can we be to either forgive or punish someone for a crime. The primary cause behind any crime is false education and lack of values. When people live a life not well connected with others in society they tend to develop criminal mindset as pain of others don’t affect them. They live and die for their own amusement.


Few tend to feel they are more powerful than others and what if they do something extraordinary that average people can’t think of. They can always find an escape route. They misuse when they don’t know the real use of power.

The purpose of any punishment should be to bring change in society. Change in our thoughts and action. We may look at change in others but the convicts are not allowed in this case. There is no scope for them to change and come back to society again. Have we started believing some people can’t be changed at all.

People with a criminal state of mind tend to be more inhuman by nature these days. They sometimes commit a crime to have fun without any thought of the outcome of their madly action.

With capital punishment the scope for change is shrinking and intolerance increasing leading to a more inhumane society. While some may see it as an example for others to guard themselves and not even think of committing such a crime, in reality we observe little change in society with the attitude of people. Fear factor may not work well all the time.

People these days demand punishment and they feel happy when government fulfills their demand. I don’t understand well if it’s to give justice or under pressure. They demand to put an end to another life that caused great pain to their lives. As an outcome the possibility of false encounters can’t be ruled out.

Inhumanity at rise and government feels pressure while making decisions. As citizens we need to respect a decision and should have no say in judicial matters. Media here has great responsibility not to provoke people.

There are many constraints now because of the mindset of people and the way we have built our society that prevents us thinking about any historic decision for sustainable social change. We grew ourselves up and developed that mindset over a brief period.

We have to think seriously now whether time has come or not. When I started thinking about this sort of punishment I went back to history and read what great personalities had to say about it. Below are few of the thoughts from great indian orators as it is published in the “penguin book of modern Indian speeches…”

KNOWING SAINT VALENTINE

I had little knowledge about the significance of valentine’s day. I heard  about it for the first time in india during the days of my graduation many years back. I came to know it as the martyrdom day of saint valentine. It is mostly observed among youth to celebrate love.

I thought like why any specific day of the year when love is such a powerful force and great value to be celebrated every day of the year. By this time I was curious to know more about saint valentine and the significance of this day.

In our place where society is very conservative, It has always been under controversy as something derived from western culture and not originally part of us. There is strong opposition by different communities in india on this day and they feel it should be replaced as parents worship day.

I read articles on web to know more about it. Following are few good source of information.

MY SANCTUARY

The words untrammelled

When I shiver with fear,
My eye will drop a tear,
I will need someone dear,
To be there to hear;

My heart sinks so low,
And my smile says ” no”,
Tough stories all in a row,
You will be the first to know;

The grief will crowd in a hurry,
My wish I would try to bury,
With every reason to worry,
In you I will find my sanctuary!

WORSHIP FROM OUR HEART

Pure Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Worship is only a verb, when our heart is in it. Regardless, of what the world says or how the enemy is trying to paint your picture, remind him, “I believe in something More!”

God is my more than enough. He is more than the whole world against me. Who can be against me, when I know God is for me?

Lord, your worship is in my heart because my heart is in You.

पिता (FATHER)

I love this poem. Here the love of a child for father is very well expressed.

I tried with Google translator on the original poem written in hindi language and got the following.

I find those in the mind,
I bow that head there,
Under whose shadow
I am able to define,
Thoughts which I can do,
Bring success to life,
They are such priests,
Whose I am called son.

Whenever hopeless ever happens,
Or get upset,
While still on the path,
The path gets confused,
Then the mother gives wishes,
And from where I bring patience,
Resolving confusing paths,
Then I get it from ancestral knowledge,
They are such priests,
Whose songs I sing.

My father my motivation

पाता हूं जिनको मन-वन में,
तत् शीश वहीं झुकाता हूँ,
जिनकी छाया में पल-ढ़ल कर,
मम् परिभाषित हो पाता हूँ,
मनन-वचन जिनका कर मैं,
जीवन में सफलता लाता हूँ,
ऐसे परम् पूज्य हैं वो,
जिनका मैं पुत्र कहलाता हूँ।

जब होता आशाहीन कभी,
या फिर व्यथित हो जाता हूँ,
सत् पथ होकर भी जब,
पथ भ्रमित हो जाता हूँ,
तब जननी देती अभिलाषा,
और धैर्य जहाँ से लाता हूँ,
भ्रमित पथ का निराकरण,
तब पितृ ज्ञान से पाता हूँ,
ऐसे परम् पूज्य हैं वो,
जिनका गुणगान मैं गाता हूँ।
