मजधार


तुमको हो मालूम तो बताना,
कौन सा रास्ता खुशियों की तरफ जाता हैं !
लहरों से जूझते हुए पता नहीं,
साहिल कब, कहाँ नज़र आता हैं !!
इक कश्ती पे सवार थी,
बहुत दूर मंजिल थी मेरी,
मजधार में जो साथ टूटा,
बेवक्त रोना न जाने किस किस बात पे आता है !
तुमको हो मालूम तो बताना,
कौन सा रास्ता खुशियों की तरफ जाता हैं !
बोझ है मेरे सीने पर कई,
रात दिन उस आस में 'नई', 
रेत के घरोंदे सा मेरा मन,
हर चीस पे ढेह जाता है !
तुमको हो मालूम तो बताना,
कौन सा रास्ता खुशियों की तरफ जाता हैं !
बिन पूछे कोई सवाल, लहरों के संग संग बहूँगी,
जिंदा हूँ गर आज भी, तो जिंदा ही रहूंगी,
उसके नाम को दफ़न करने के बाद,
उसकी यादों से रिश्ता बन जाता है !
पर गर तुमको हो मालूम तो बताना,
कौन सा रास्ता खुशियों की तरफ जाता हैं !


*This poem tries to portray the feelings of a friend who lost her husband in an accident a week back. He was hit by a car driven by young boys who were heavily drunk. It was her first birthday after marriage and she is seven months pregnant.

  1. Oh my God :( No words could provide her any solace at this moment, but still, your friend will be in my prayers. Hope, God gives her the strength to carry on.

    While reading the poetry, though it was very beautiful, I was wishing there is no real-life inspiration behind it. Your words are beautiful, the pain though, is unending and ugly.

    May the departed rest in peace and may God give strength to the family, to bear this huge loss.

  2. This is so sad. Will they live with this guilt that they destroyed a happy family with their callous attitude ?

  3. The emotion overwhelms the words, as also any critical faculty one may possess. Reminds me of a Ghazal I wrote many years ago on an Indian's death in one of those senseless US Campus massacres:

    बेवजह मौत दिखे जब भी
    यूँही उसे तुम याद करना
    बहाना तो जीने का चाहिए
    नहीं मुश्किल बेसबब मरना

    It was suitably composed and sung and posted on Orkut(those were the days), went semi viral and in a few days the girl's family contacted us saying that the Ghazal had offered them some solace. Your words will undoubtedly offer some solace to your friend. Our prayers!

  15. Gives me goosebumps and makes me numb to think what must that woman be thinking of right now. Shocked. Petrified. And life sometimes is really not fair. :(

  16. That is devastating. Makes my heart heavy just imagining what the family must be going through. A precious life lost due to carelessness of some drunk morons, makes me sad and angry. I hope your friend and her family gets the strength to face the most devastating phase of their life. Your beautiful words lend an emotional and poignant touch, Saru.

  17. This is really sad and unfortunate :(
    You expressed the emotions beautifully. I liked these lines "Tumko ho maloom to batana, kaun sa rasta khushiyon ki taraf jaata hai"

  18. I am at a loss for words. I really dont know what to say. Nothing said or done can even try to lessen the depth of pain your friend must be going through. Life can be so cruel to us. I dont have anything to say. I'll pray to God to give your friend enough courage to take every step in such a difficult phase! May God be with her!

  29. I couldnot go beyond the first 5 lines, not because its in hindi, or because i as bored, but solely because, something similar happened at my end. Your Poem has a life innit, a soul that has been well captured. Saru, you are someone who has the ability to make a simple sentence sound beautiful.

    Am glad your friend has you around, and il pray that God gives her strength and courage , to heal her wounds

  31. Absolutely sad to know the context. We never realise that small acts of ours done without much thought, can change the life of someone for ever.

    All I can say is please be by her side and give her strength and courage to rebuild her life.

  36. OMG so sad ...your poem expresses all her misery so evocatively.

  37. This is so sad.. it is very tough to digest this. Moved to tears

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am speechless. I can’t express my sadness in words and I can’t even try to imagine the burden of pain and unending grief your friend would be going through. Sometimes silence is the best solace I can offer. For a moment, your words took me into the realms of the agony and pain that would have come to occupy her soul. The pain is hers to shoulder but through your poem you have alleviated it a little by letting us feel the same pain. May God and lovely friends like you be with her in this testing time and give her the inner strength. I will pray!

  40. मार्मिक,हृदयस्पर्शी प्रस्तुति.
    मृत्यु एक अटल सत्य है.
    न जाने किस् पल यह घटित हो जाए.
    मृत्यु का आघात सोचने समझने के लिए मजबूर कर देता है.
    जिसे हम पाया समझते हैं,उसे हम कभी भी खो भी सकते हैं.

    अध्यात्म चिंतन मृत्यु के त्रास से निजात दिलाता है.

    भावपूर्ण गहन प्रस्तुति के लिए आभार,सरू जी.

  54. Felt very sad about your friend.I dont why god chose people for shock therepy and for a normal person it is very hard to digest that it has happened and people start asking question to god the same way as you potrayed the emotion of her through your poem. No words can heal her wounds but shedding tears will definately lighten her heart and I will pray to God to give her strength and move on in life and find happiness within herself.

  55. I loved your poem... however the full impact of it came from your note about your friend... no words can capture her emotions and feelings... That you dedicate your poem to her is highly commendable

  59. Hey,

    Can you help suggest as to how can I write or publish a post in hindi on my blog?

    ReplyDelete
  60. The bereavement is inconsolable; It is hard that someone has to pay for the misdeeds of others, and the shock that it brings.

    May God give her strength, from within and from everyone else around to cope with it and have a healthy baby. May the baby bring a different kind of happiness to her life.

    Regards,
    Blasphemous Aesthete
