Dream night


I slept one night with positive vibes.

Dream came with negative vibes.

My entire structure collapsed.

It was difficult to find way to survive.

I saw myself struggling a lot.

Trying to build a new plot.

Construction started with full effort.

That also vanished due to a sudden storm.

There was nothing left to gain.

I was suffering with severe pain.

Crying from inside and outside.

I was fighting in my dream night.

Left alone in the curse of life.

I was finding some ray of light.

Barking words coming from everywhere.

Nothing is left anywhere.

Humanity killed and humans are alive.

That’s the real world I must realize.

People won’t be sympathetic.

Better I should become pragmatic.

Suddenly I woke up from my dream.

Surprised to know what I saw in the dream.

Dream gave me one lesson.

Don’t give up but fight with your passion.

What I learnt is what I shared.

Dream taught me which I should care.

It was a nice morning looking at the rising sun.

Learning to move ahead with hope of none.

Humans have forgotten humanity.

Sorry to say but that’s the reality.

I saw that dream long ago.

It gave me courage to go and get go.

The dream which I saw that night,

where I was fighting in my dream night.

It became my dream night which gave me courage to fight.

नीती में राजनीति |


वहाँ जल रहे हैं अरमान रात और दिन.
वो कहते हैं की करेंगे काम एक दिन.
यहाँ हर जगह अंधियारा है.
अंदर और बाहर कष्टों का बसेरा है.
क्या करेंगे लोग इस बहार में.
यहाँ लोग जी रहें आँसुओं की बहार में .
जल गये शमशान मे लुटा के सब कुछ.
सब खो दिया अब बचा नही कुछ.
यहाँ कदम कदम पर उन्नति की बात होती है.
नेता अभिनेता बन कर अपनी रोटियाँ सेक्ते हैं.
और लोग आँसुओं से दिए जला कर जीते हैं.
नीति तो बनी पर उसपे राजनीति क्यूँ हुई.
ऐसी इस्थति पैदा ही क्यूँ हुई???

वो कहते हैं ग़रीबी हटाएँगे.
खुशहाली और मुस्कुराहट लाएँगे.
जो रोशनी मे जीते हैं उन्हे अंधेरा कैसे समझ आएगा?
रोटी ना मिलने का दर्द कैसे पता चल पाएगा?
जिन पर बीती है उनसे पूछो भूख क्या होती है.
बिना सब्ज़ी के पानी से रोटी कैसे खाते हैं?
हद तो तब होती है जब पानी भी ना मिले.
भूख मिटाने को…
आँसू के साथ ही रोटी खा लेते हैं.
आज़ाद तो हो गये पर आज़ादी मिली कहाँ?
भूख से मरते हुए अब भी हैं लोग यहाँ.
हर गली, नुक्कड़ चौराहों पर नज़र डालो.
कुछ वक़्त निकाल कर ज़रा इन्हे भी संभलो.
देख रहा हूँ मैं ये नज़ारा कई वर्षों से.
हर रोज़ लोग मरते हैं भूख से.
इतने वादे इतने कदम कहाँ रह जाते हैं.
समझ नहीं आता ये भूख से लोग मरते ही जाते हैं.
इन्हें कपड़े नहीं हैं तन ढकने को.
ठंड से तिठुरते…
ढक लेते है पेट अपने पाँव से.
नीति बनाने वालो कहाँ है वो नीति?
सच तो ये है…
यहाँ नीति मे राजनीति चलती है.
पिसते हैं बुज़ुर्ग और गारीद पर इनकी रोटियाँ सिकटी हैं.
दुख होता ये जान कर.
नीति तो बनी पर उसपे राजनीति क्यूँ हुई.
ऐसी इस्थति पैदा ही क्यूँ हुई???

मैं रोया तो नहीं …


मौसम के अलग अलग मिज़ाज़ मे.
ज़िंदगी के हर उतार चढ़ाव मे.
औरों के घाव को मरहम लगते हुए.
और खुद के घाव पे नमक छिड़कते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
दिल ऐसा टूटा की टुकड़े भी ना मिले.

राहों मे अंधेरों का सामना करते हुए.
औरों के दुखों को मिटाते हुए.
खुद को खेलने का प्रयोगशाला बनाते हुए.
सब धोखों को झेलते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
बनावटी इस दुनिया मे हम अकेले पर गये.

शोर के इस वातावरण मे.
ज़िंदगी ने ज़हर ऐसा उगला.
मौत भी मुँह मोर कर चली गयी.
पर उस वक़्त मैं ना पिघला.
आँखों की लालिमा करती है कुछ इशारे.
दफ़ना दो उन ख्वाबों को जो नहीं हैं हमारे.
आवाज़ों के बाज़ारों मे खामोशी पहचानता कोई नहीं.
जो होना था वो हो गया बस अब और नहीं.
रह गया उस मंज़र और इस मंज़र मैं, अकेला.
चलो बनता हू इक दुनिया जो होगा रंगीला.
पर उस वक़्त…
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
हम दिल पर पत्थर रख , किसी और दिशा चल दिए.

Suicide – Right or wrong?


Suicide, the word seems to be little awkward and is generally considered to be a crime. There can be many reasons to commit suicide. This article highlights one of the major problems i.e suicide which is rarely discussed.

India reported 1,33,623 suicidal deaths in the year 2015 as per the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. This figure is strange as more than a lakh people committed suicide. Out of the total suicide, female suicide accounted to 42088 and male suicide were 91528 and rest 7 were transgender. Let us look at some statistics of suicides in India as illustrated in the following table which highlights the top 10 suicidal states.

Table 1: Suicidal deaths in top 10 states in the year 2015

Tamil Nadu 15777

Karnataka 10786
Madhya Pradesh 10293
Telangana 10140
Kerela 7692
Gujarat 7246

As it can be interpreted from the above table, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal are leading in suicidal deaths. The above table also states that the problem of suicide is present throughout India from north to south, west to east which is an alarming situation. Let us look at the top 10 major cities in India having a wide number of suicidal deaths which is illustrated in the following table.

Table 2: 10 major cities with suicidal deaths in the year 2015
City Suicidal deaths
Chennai 2274
Bengaluru 1855
Delhi 1553
Mumbai 1122
Pune 873
Ahmedabad 869
Hyderabad 728
Surat 663
Indore 528
Nagpur 483

From the above table, Chennai is the leading city with highest number of suicidal deaths and can be said as the suicidal capital of India. The five major cities of India namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad are in the list of top 10 cities having suicidal deaths.

There can be many reasons for suicide. Some of the reasons can be work pressure, extra marital affairs, love failure, household atrocities, depression, stress, no hope for survival, examination pressure of failure, hunger, lack of basic amenities to live, poverty etc. However, the exact reason behind people committing suicide is difficult to find. Some people say that it is the state of mind which allows people to take such step. Yes, it is the mind who decides what to do and what not to do and it is ultimately the decision of people who go to end their life. This is startling but is the harsh reality.

Life is precious and should be lived and enjoyed while facing the bad moments. Nothing lasts forever, whether it is good or bad. Approach should be to fight and not to quit and end up one’s life. One needs to be strong enough to tackle the situation. It’s amazing to know that there are cases where people come to end up their life if failed in some activities which they have desired most. But is committing suicide is right? Life doesn’t end if you fail.

Please share your views on suicide. Those who commit suicide, is it right or wrong? What according to you is the reason behind committing suicide and what steps can be taken in order to curb suicidal deaths? Please share your thoughts.
