हालाँकि हम कभी मिल नहीं पाए
एक छोटी औपचारिक भेंट तक नहीं
फिर भी अनेक तस्वीरें देख कर
एक चेहरा बनाया है तुम्हारा
पर कभी कोई आवाज़ नहीं जोड़ पाया
उस चेहरे से |
कई दफ़ा उस से पूछ्ता हूँ
खुद से पूछ्ता हूँ
” क्या तुम्हें मैं पसंद आता
क्या हमारी आपस में बनती
क्या होता हमारी परिचर्चा का विषय?”
हर बार एक चुप्पी मिलती है जवाब में
और मैं उसे सहेज कर रख लेता हूँ
दिल के किसी कोने में
तुम्हारा आर्शीवाद समझ कर ||
>And there is nothing left to do
But to kiss once again, and part,
Nay, there is nothing we should rue,
I have my beauty,—you your Art,
Nay, do not start,
One world was not enough for two
Like me and you.
– Oscar Wilde
>One is allowed to hoist Pakistan’s flag but is prevented from hoisting the tricolour.
I would say, “Its Lal Chowk today. It will be entire Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow.” An immature government headed by a spineless CM in the state. As far as the central government is concerned- less said, the better.
Very often we are confused about the lives our friends live – look at their pictures on facebook and it seems they live amidst nature’s bounty while in reality they might be lamenting the obscure location of their college campuses.
Found an interesting piece here. Read on!
>There goes Arundhati Roy again… I agree that our politicians have not handled the issue wisely. Starting with Nehru, everybody failed Kashmir and the people of Kashmir through false promises, lies and deceit. Below I try to present a brief history of Kashmir. Much of it comes from my learning in Prof Mathews class in Social Transformation of India course in 1st term at Kozhikode.
Akbar annexed Kashmir in 1586 AD. Kashmir has been under the subjugation of Afghans, Sikhs and Dogras. Now, it’s India’s turn. History of Kashmir is bound in Shaivite Hinduism. Lal Ded (1320-1392) was a Shaivite woman saint who struggled against orthodoxy. Local sufi order was called as Silsila-e-Rishiyan which consisted of Muslim saints of Kashmir. Sheikh Nuruddin was another saint who believed that Hindus and Muslims should leave peacefully. The famous shrine in Kashmir Charar-e-Sharief is the shrine of this greatest saint of Kashmir. Syncretic traditions were established in Kashmir. Preservation of relics, recitation in chorus, prayer with folded hands. There were many female disciples also. Dahat Bibi had debated with Mir Mohammad Hamadani on “futility of rituals”. After the demise of Sheikh Nuruddin, 360 rishis had come to pay their homage. Rishi Latifuddin took non-violence to extremes. Rishi Payamuddin set up a free order of community kitchen for poor which still exists at Tangmaarg.
