मेरे बचपन का शहर 'कुल्टी'
 Asha Pandey 'Taslim'  
 25 January 2018  

गर्मी की छुट्टी आ रही है बच्चों की आँखों में अपने ननिहाल जाने के सपने पल रहे हैं,सारी सखियाँ अपने मायके जाने को खुशी-खुशी पहले से ही तैयारी करने में जुटी हैं।सारे बच्चे भी अपनी माँ के संग उनके बचपन के दिनों में लौटने को उत्सुक दिख रहे हैं।लेकिन मैं नहीं जाना चाहती अपने बचपन के उस हरे भरे और आज के उजाड़ "कुल्टी" को।मेरे बचपन का वो खूबसूरत सा शहर वक्त़ की कब्र में मर-खप गया है।वो मेरे बचपने का शहर,मेरी ज़िन्दगी के सबसे बेहतरीन उन 20 सालों का गवाह हँसता,मुस्कराता,खेलता,कूदता मेरा शहर "कुल्टी"।जिसने मुझे ज़िन्दगी दी,होश दिया,तरबीयत दी,प्यार दिया,लाड दिया दुलार दिया।जिसने मेरी रगों में दौड़ते लहू को रवानी दी "वो शहर" अब मुझे किसी बन्द पडी़ घड़ी की तरह दिखाई देता है।उस घडी़ की तरह जिसे घड़ीसाज़ ने खुद पुर्जे़-पुर्जे़ खोलकर बिखेर दिया हो।निकाल कर फेंक दिया हो एक-एक पेंच और कर दिया हो बे-पुर्जा़ खोखला।मेरा जन्म जब हुआ था "कुल्टी" शहर के इस भरे-पूरे परिवार में जो कि मेरा मयका है,तब ये शहर पूरी तरह से खुशहाल था।अपने पूरे शबाब पर एशिया के पहले लौह इस्पात कारखाने के तमगे के साथ सीना ताने खडा़ हुआ था यह खुशहाल शहर,मगर आज अपने ताबूत में आखिरी कील ठोक बैठा है।हरे-भरे पेड़,बंगाल का बेहतरीन गोल्फ-ग्राउंड,थियेटर,रविंद्रमंच,जादू घर,बर्फ़-कल,दुर्गा पूजा का मेला यानि हम बच्चों के लिये हमारी पूरी दुनिया।कारखाने के आस-पास बने क्वाटर्स में बडे़-बडे़ अधिकारी,देशी-विदेशी कर्मचारी रहते थे,देश-दुनिया के लोगऔर कुछ पड़ोसी देश नेपाल के भी।जो भी सम्पदा "कुल्टी" के पास थी देने को,दिया उसने जी खोलकर।बिल्कुल धरती की तरह,गंगा की तरह और एक माँ की तरह।अफसोस लेने वालों ने लेने की तरह नहीं बल्कि लुटेरों की तरह छीना,नोचा,लूटा,खसोटा।बाहरी थे ही,बाहरी की तरह ही गलत तरीके से इस्तेमाल किया मेरे बचपने के इस "कुल्टी" को।उन्होंने कभी सोचा भी नहीं कि वो "कुल्टी" की जगह अपना ही जड़ काट रहे हैं।वे बाहरी थे सभी,उनके लिये वो उनका घर नहीं,बस पैसा कमाने-बनाने का एक आसान स्थान था।पीढ़ियों के बाद भी उनकी न हुई थी "कुल्टी"।कुल्टी की क़िस्मत ऐसी कि उसके गोद में पले-जन्मे बच्चे भी खुद को यू०पी०, बिहार या नेपाल के बाशिंदे ही खुदको मानते रहे।"कुल्टी"इतनों के होते हुए भी संतान विहीन थी।गैरों के बच्चे,ना-ना सँपोले पालती "कुल्टी" विष-दंश से नीली पड़ती,मरती,उजड़ती,उखड़ती रही।अपने ही कामगारों,दलालों,बाहूबलियों,लुटेरों,घोटालेबाजों के हाथों डूबता बरबाद होता रहा कुल्टी का कारखाना।धीरे-धीरे घाटा बढ़ता रहा,मरता रहा कारखाना।कर्मचारी सोचते रहे कि 'ये तो गंगा है बहती रहेगी अनवरत हमने तो एक लोटा जल ही निकाला है अपने वतन यानि अपने घर के लिये,इसी सोच ने हाथों हाथ दोहन किया,खूब लूटा कुल्टी और कारखाना को।एक-एक लोटे ने आखिरकार खाली ही कर दिया अमृत,चरमराता रहा कारखाना,सूखता रही नदी।थक-हारकर कर बैठ गई "कुल्टी" बन्द हो गया इस्को का कारखाना 1997 में। कहने को तो आज भी चल रहा है शायद अधमरा सा अपंग सा, पर हर बार मुझे लगता है जैसे कोमा में है ये।मेरे बचपन के इस शहर का तेवर मर चुका है।उसकी यादें,आह मेरे बचपने का शहर "कुल्टी"।अपनों के हाथों बनाई अर्थी पर अचेत पडा़ है मेरा बेजान शहर,उसे इस बेहोशी से उठा पाये,ऐसा कोई चमत्कार होता तो मुझे नहीं दिखता।कितना खूबसूरत था मेरा शहर,आज मुझे एक तस्वीर लेने को यदि कोई कहे तो लगता है उस मरते शहर को हरे बेलो के अर्थी पे खड़ा करने की कोशिश को कहाँ रखूँ मैं।तस्वीरों में लपेट के क्या लाऊँ क्या दिखाऊँ और क्या देखूँ।मेरे वो बचपन की "कुल्टी" यादों में बहुत खूबसूरत है।वो शहर जो दौड़ता था कुलांचे भरता था खिलखिलाता था,आज भी यादों की इस पोटली में बंद है।मैं नहीं जाती छुट्टी में,अब अपने घर "कुल्टी"।बिना नीव के मकान और बिन खंबे की छत सा टिका है यह जरजर शहर,डर लगता है कहीं सर पर ही न गिर पडे़।बिना गरदन का शहर "भूत" और टेढे पाँव की "कुल्टी" चुडै़ल दिखती है।#कुल्टी

पद्मावत या पद्मावती

काकी हमारी क़माल की किस्सागो थी,जब भी कोई कहानी सुनाती आँखों में दृश्य कोंध जाते थे और हम बच्चे अवधी में देश और दुनिया के तमाम किस्से सुनते नहीं थे काकी के आँखों से देखते थे।बचपन में काकी के ही शब्दों में देखा था महारानी पद्मावती का जौहर,गोरा और बादल के शौर्य की गाथा,सिंघल की राजकुमारी का अद्भुत रूप,महारानी नागमती का अपने पति के लिए किया गया त्याग,वो कम्बख्त तोता "हीरामन" जिसने रूप का वर्णन ऐसा किया पद्मावती के कि जिसने सुना मोहित हो गया।शर्मसार एक ब्राह्मण के कृत्य पर भी उन्हीं शब्दों के चित्र पर हुए।और अंत ये सुन के "अय बिटिया" अतिका कौनो भला न,न रूप न ख़िलजी के ताकत न,न राणा के प्रेम,न ज़िद".....ये थी महारानी "पद्मावती" जी शताब्दियों बाद भी जायसी के ग्रंथ से निकल कर हमारे तक आई थी।पिछले कुछ महीनों से अचानक से "पद्मावती" फ़िर चर्चा में आई(वैसे उन्हें भूला कौन था?)संजय लीला भंसाली जब शूटिंग करने चले इसी नाम की फ़िल्म का तब। संजय की बनाई फ़िल्मों के कभी बड़े दिवाने होते थे हम। तब,जब वो 'हम दिल दे चुके सनम' या 'ख़ामोशी' बनाये थे।तब भव्य सेट,उम्दा कलाकार,बेहतरीन संगीत,एक अलग दुनिया में पहुँचता हुआ सा जादूगर थे तबतक,संजय 'गुज़ारिश' तक में।लेकिन जब उन्होंने 'देवदास' को कृत्रिम रूप से भव्य बना दिया दृश्यों को बदलकर कहानी को ही ड्रामेटिक करने के चक्कर में,उस वक्त़ लगा ये चितेरा बहुत जिद्दी है।हर रूप को भव्य दिखाने को आतुर।बाजीराव मस्तानी देखी,फ़िर बाजीराव बदले से लगे। एकदम फ़िल्मी उस वक्त़ निर्णय लिया कि इस आदमी की बनाई फ़िल्में देखनी हो तो,इसकी ही आँखों से देखनी होगी इसलिए ऐतिहासिक फ़िल्में अब न देखनी कमसे कम इनकी बनाई हुई।इस इरादे को मज़बूत ही रखती अगर फ़िल्म को लेकर इतना बवाल न मचता,इस फ़िल्म को देखने का मक़सद साफ़ था अपने-अपने तईं अभिव्यक्ति की आज़ादी को बचाना किसी भी तालिबानी फ़रमान से,बाकी तो पता था जिद्दी भंसाली भी है।नाम और कुछ दृश्य को छोड़ पूरी कहानी खुद लिखेंगे,तो कल दो ज़िद्दी टकराये एक साथ। एक जिसे बदलाव ज़रा पसन्द नहीं,कुछ कहानियों किरदारों में।और दूसरा जो मनमर्ज़ी करता है हर कहानी और किरदारों के संग।भंसाली की पद्मावत(पद्मावती)बहुत खूबसूरत है,वाकई जब जंगल में दीपिका नज़र आती हैं हिरन का शिकार करते उस वक़्त उस सादगी,उस खूबसूरती का कौन न शिकार हो जाये।सिंघल के मोती सी नायाब नायिका हल्के रंग के जोड़े में खुद मोती लगती हैं।"शाहिद" जाने क्यों शाहिद ही नज़र आते हैं,शायद शब्दों में और फ़िल्मों में राजपूत राणा हमेशा लम्बे-ऊंचे आन-बान के साथ इसी रूप में मन के कोने बसे हैं इसलिए।हाँ एक सम्मानित प्रेमी एक निष्ठ राजा के रोल में बुरे नहीं शाहिद,लेकिन "शाहिद" शाहिद ही रहे।दीपिका पहले दृश्य से ही राजकुमारी रहीं,जो जब चलती हैं मुस्कुराती हैं छत्राणी के तरह घाव ताज़ा कर अनूठे ढंग से प्रेम निवेदन करती हैं।मारवाड़ की महारानी बनते ही उस राजकुमारी के पहनावे और ज़बान तक पर असर हुआ और वो भी क़माल के दृश्य हैं।मुझे फ़िल्म में "रणवीर" बस एक बार रणवीर नज़र आये जब वो "खलिबली"गाने पर नाच रहे थे।वीभत्स रस प्रेम के नग़मे गाते हुए।बाक़ी पूरे फ़िल्म में इस लड़के को ढूंढती रही लेकिन वो न था,हाँ इतिहास में दर्ज़ एक क्रूर शासक 'ख़िलजी' को और भी क्रूर रूप में दर्शाता हुआ,अलाऊद्दीन था ज़रूर।जिसे क्रूर दिखाने के सारे हथकंडे अपनाये गए थे। जो जीत कर भी सिकन्दर न बन सका,पदमावती के चिता के,राख़ के नीचे उसकी सारी हेकड़ी दब गई।ये वो दृश्य जो अच्छे लगे।जो देख दुःख हुआ वो एक राजपुरोहित के रूप में एक ब्राह्मण का द्रोह,अपमान के आग में जल कर पूरे मेवाड़ को भष्म करने की कुटील चेस्टा।ख़ुसरो का छोटा सा रोल जिसमें अजीब तरह से डायलॉग डिलवरी और चाटूकारिता की गंध।गोरा,बादल के अद्भुत शौर्य को कम-से-कम फिल्माना।महारानी नागमती जैसी विदुषी को बस गहने के लिए रूठते और सौतन से डाह करते दिखाना।बा-कमाल दृश्य जब महारानी पद्मावती पूरे रनिवास संग जोहर करती हैं उस लाल चुनर को देख उस दृश्य को देख,उस पल में चले जाना जैसा जब ये आत्महत्या नहीं गर्व और वीरता की निशानी थी।सती होना,दुश्मन के हाथ आने से बेहतर अग्नि में समा जाना।एक पल को लगा जैसे वाघा बॉर्डर पर देशप्रेम हिलोरें मारता वहां के वायु में कुछ है।उसी तरह फ़िल्म के अंतिम द्दृश्य क़माल के।पूरी फिल्म देखने के बाद सोचा क्यों मचा बवाल इस फ़िल्म में ?इतनी महिमामंडन तो आल्हा गाते हुए नहीं सुनी राजपूताना शान की।जितनी इस फ़िल्म में हुई है।"ख़िलजी" को आतताई दिखाने की भी भरपूर कोशिश तो की ही गई है।जब वो अपनी ही हथेली काट अपने चेहरे पर खून पोत कर युद्ध की घोषणा करता है।जब वो पीठ पर वार करता है,जब उसके बाये गाल पर आँखों के नीचे आये चोटों को बार-बार फोकस करके दिखाया जाता है।फिर खुद को समझाया शायद ज़रूरी था ये विरोध का ड्रामा भी।न तो, मैं ही न आती,"पद्मावत" देखने।और मेरे जैसे जाने कितने जिन्होंने सुनी हो जायसी के शब्दों से निकली पद्मावती को या महसूस किया हो सती माता के तेज को मेवाड़ में।लेकिन हमसब गये देखा और एक फ़िल्म जिसे बेहतरीन तरीके से बनाया है इस किस्सागो ने,जिनका नाम संजय लीला भंसाली है।*मेरी काकी से बेहतर नहीं है किस्सागोई में यह फिल्म।मेरे ज़ेहन में आज भी वो पद्मावती है जो काकी की ज़बानी दिखी वो आज भी सुरक्षित है।*

Black Clover. The birth of a demon
 Roshan Rollands  
 30 January 2018  
Art

In a world where magic power is everything, the story follows the journeys of two orphans- Aster and Juno who were abandoned at the doors of a church on the same day. Inseparable from that day, they trained together in hopes of becoming a magic knight, all in order to someday, become the magic emperor, the strongest magic knight who long ago saved the world from destruction. However, one day their paths diverge and Juno, who’s a prodigy at shaping his magic becomes cold towards Aster who couldn’t bring out a sliver of magic power. Juno hones his skills relentlessly while Aster, still not giving up, trains his body to surpass his limits. Every year, all the 15 year olds in the Kingdom of clover gather to receive their grimoires, times that augment one’s magical power. While the grimoires normally have three clover leaves, symbolising faith, hope and love. Juno receives the legendary four leaf clover with the added leaf of fortune. As for Aster, he doesn’t receive a grimoire of his own. Aster still doesn’t give up and resumes his training. Later that evening, Juno is ambushed by a fallen magic knight who seeks to sell the legendary four leaf clover grimoire. Aster rushes in to help only to be beaten into the ground. In his moments of desperation, his calls are answered by a dusty and beaten up grimoire. Unknown to Aster, this is a 5 leaf grimoire, the fifth leaf symbolising the demon. After sending the magic knight packing, Aster and Juno renew their pledge to see which of them would become the magic emperor. What does the future hold for our young orphans? Only time can tell.

Rabbit Doubt
 Roshan Rollands  
 4 February 2018  

Rabbit DoubtA group of rabbits used to have fun playing games and lived together happily. One day, a wolf disguised itself as a rabbit and snuck in under the pretext of being their friend. When the rabbits would fall asleep, the wolf would appear in its true form and kill the rabbits one by one every night. Not knowing what to do, the rabbits held a meeting to address the matter. They decided the one among themselves who was most likely to be the wolf and killed it. If they chose correctly, the rabbits would win. If not, the wolf would keep picking them off one by one. This is the basic plot of “rabbit doubt”, a game played among the youth where a group of people convene to play by the aforementioned rules. A group of rabbits where one is given the role of the wolf. However, this amazingly thought out manga by Yoshiki Tonogai takes a turn for the worse when Yuu, Mitsuki, Rei, Hajime, Eiji and Haruka, people who often play the rabbit’s doubt together decide to meet up for a good time, but are instead captured and forced to play the game by the dark, bloody rules that underlie this seemingly innocent activity. They wake up in an abandoned building with a barcode on each of them. They move around in the house trying to find an escape route but end up finding Rei nailed to a wall. Doubt and isolation make friends turn against each other, making it easier for the wolf to carry out the Devil’s work. The wolf has already made his move and has claimed his first victim. Who could the wolf be? And can they be stopped before they strike again?Image source- https://www.zerochan.net/t 15220

The first three labours of Hercules
 Roshan Rollands  
 7 February 2018

The first labour- The Newman LionHercules and the Newman lion by Pieter Paul ReubensThe Newman lion was a beast that took helpless women from the neighbouring villages. The reason it would do so wasn’t just for a good meal but also to attract heroes in their attempts to rescue the damsels in distress. Once entering its cave, the warrior would notice a grievously injured girl. Rushing to their aid, they’d be killed by the lion who was in fact masquerading as the victim. There’s two ways the story goes now. In one version, Hercules meets a boy who says that they’ll sacrifice a lion if Hercules return after slaying the beast within 30 days. If not, he’ll sacrifice himself to Zeus. Another version shows Hercules meeting Molorchos who said that if he was victorious, a ram would be sacrificed to Zeus and if not, it would be sacrificed to Hercules as a mourning offering. Hercules arms himself with several arrows but found them to be ineffective against the Newman lion’s golden fur. He changes tactics and forces the lion to retreat to its cave. Once in the dark, with limited room for escape, he stuns the lion with his club and strangled it with his superhuman strength. He then skins the lion using one of its own claws and used its fur as his armour. He returned to king Eurystheus who had assigned Hercules this trial. Fearing his strength, he refuses to let him into the kingdom and then sent herald to inform Hercules of his remaining eleven labourssecond labour- Lernaean HydraThe Lernean Hydra by Gustave MonreauThe hydra was a beast that was raised by Goddess Hera, the wife of Zeus for the sole reason of killing Hercules. It lived in the swamp near Lake Lerna which kept travellers away because of the toxic fumes. Hercules covered his mouth and nose while traversing the swamp to keep himself safe from the gases. He fired flaming arrows into the Hydra’s lair to draw it out. He then attacked the hydra with a harvesting sickle (according to some legends. Others suggest a sword or his mighty club). During the course of the battle, he realised that it was no ordinary monster as each head he cut off gave rise to two heads in its place. He then called on his nephew Iolaus for help at beating the beast. He then came up with the idea of using a firebrand to scorch the neck stumps of the decapitated heads, thus preventing them from regenerating. Seeing Hercules triumphing, Hera sends a giant crab to distract him which he crushes beneath his feet. Another alternate lore suggests that Hercules cuts a head off of the hydra and uses the poison that effuses out to decapitate the remaining heads. Hera, displeased with Hercules besting her creatures, puts them in the dark vault of the cosmos as the constellations Hydra and Cancer.Third labour- Ceryneian hindThe hind of Ceryneia by Erica WilliamsAngered that Hercules had survived the hydra, Eurystheus and Hera devised a new task that they thought was impossible for Hercules. So far, he’s always vested any monster they’d thrown at him. So this time, Hercules was told to capture the Ceryneian hind which is said to run even faster than an arrow. Hercules chases the hind on foot for a whole year, through Greece and the land of the giants, but to no avail. A version of the story says that Hercules finally caught it in a trap. Another version says that he immobilised it with an arrow to the forelimbs. Another version says that he met Artemis who told him to leave the hind and say that it was her will. Regardless, he returned with the hind. The king was hoping he’d get Hercules to kill it and anger Artemis in the process. Hercules begged Artemis for forgiveness and told her that he had to kill it as part of his penance but he said that he’d return the hind alive. The hind was to become a part of the king’s menagerie on Hercules’s return. Remembering his promise to Athena, he told the king that he could have the hind if he came out and took it from him. When the king came out, Hercules let the hind go. When the king questioned him, he simply said that the king was too slow for it.**All images have been taken from greekerthanthegreeks@blogspot.in

The fourth to sixth labours of Hercules

 15 February 2018  

Fourth labour- Erymanthian boarThe Erymanthian boar by Francisco de ZurbaránEurystheus, humiliated that the hind had escaped from right before him, sent Hercules on the next task of bringing back the Erymanthian boar alive. There are no definitive accounts of this labour though this is the most agreed upon version. On the way to Mt. Erymanthos, Hercules dunes and sups with his old friend Pholus. He was a centaur and Hercules convinces him to open the jar of wine left to the centaurs of the mountain my Dionysus. The aroma was so strong that t attracted all the centaurs of the mountain. Unknown to them, the wine was so strong that it should’ve been diluted. They drank the unadulterated wine and went berserk, attacking Hercules. Hercules shot at them with his poisonous arrows, sending them retreating all the way to Chiron’s cave. One version of the legend states that Pholus, curious as to why these arrows had killed several centaurs, picked an arrow up but dropped it on his foot, thus poisoning himself. Another version states that a stray arrow hit Chiron and poisoned him although he’s immortal. He felt immense pain, so great that he gave up his immortality and took the place of Prometheus who had his liver torn away by an eagle every morning. Hercules, seeing Chiron in such agony shot down the eagle, killing it. This labour also according to some, serves as the point for the transfer of immortality from Chiron to Hercules. Chiron then tells Hercules that in order to catch the boar, all he had to do was drive it into the deep snow. Hercules thus caught the boar, bound it and took it back to king Eurystheus.Fifth labour- Augean stablesThe Augean stables by Morgan SnellThis labour was to clean the stables of King Augeas. This was intended to be both humiliating and impossible for Hercules because the animals there were immortal and produced a huge amount of dung. The stables housed roughly a thousand cattle and it hadn’t been cleaned in almost 30 years. Hercules, confident that he could complete it in a day, asked the king for a tenth of his cattle if he succeeded in doing so. The king agreed to the bet, oblivious to what Hercules was capable of. Hercules redirected the rivers Alpheus and Peneus and succeeded in cleaning up the filth in less than a day. Augeas refused to honour the agreement on the grounds that it was King Eurystheus who’d given Hercules the task anyway. Hercules took the matter up in court and was supported by Phyleus, the king’s nephew. Augeas banished them both before the verdict of the court was out. Hercules returned to the kingdom, killed Augeas and handed over the kingdom to Phyleus. Also, according to the poet Pindar, Hercules founded the Olympic Games shortly thereafter.Sixth Labour- Stymphalian birdsHercules kills the Stymphalian birds by Albrecht DürerThe Stymphalian birds were creatures that were sacred to Aries, the good of war. They were man eating birds with beaks of bronze and dagger like metallic feathers that could be launched at their victims. They had all migrated to Lake Stymphalia in Arcadia where they multiplied rapidly. In Greek mythology, Arcadia is the home of the God Pan. In other cultures, it is seen as an untouched and unadulterated wilderness. The birds went berserk, wreaking havoc all over the countryside, destroying crops, trees and killing the townspeople. Hercules ventures into the swamp but couldn’t go too far as it couldn’t support his weight. Athena coming to his aid, gave him a rattle made by Hephaestus for this very purpose. He shook it and the birds flew out from their perches. Hercules then shot down several of them with his arrows, killing them instantly. The remaining birds flew far away never to return.**All images are taken from greekerthanthegreeks.blogspot.in

The seventh to ninth labours of hercules

 15 February 2018  

The seventh labour- The Cretan BullThe Cretan bull by B. PicartFor his seventh labour, Hercules sailed to Crete where king Minos told him of the bull that was wreaking havoc all over his kingdom, destroying crops and demolishing orchard walls. The king gave Hercules permission to take the bull away and even offered assistance in doing so which Hercules politely declined. Hercules got the jump on the bull by sneaking up from behind it and throttled it, letting go just before it died. He then shipped it back to Tiryns. Eurystheus who hid at the first sight of the creature, wanted to sacrifice it to Hera who loathes Hercules. Hera however, declined because this offering would be a testimony of Hercules’s immense bravery. The bull was then released and it wandered into Marathon, later coming to be known as the Bull of Marathon.The eighth labour- Mares of DiomedesThe Mares of Diomedes were horses that were particularly violent due to their diet that comprised mainly of human flesh. They were kept by King Diomedes of Thrace. They were kept tethered in bronze stables because of how violent they were. Some versions of the legend also say that they breathed fire from their mouths. Hercules left his friend and companion Abderus to keep watch on them while he fought Diomedes. After beating him, he finds that the boy was eaten. Driven by rage, he avenges him by feeding Diomedes to the mares which calms them down. He then builds the city of Abdera near the boy’s tomb. In another version, Hercules cuts the horses loose and drives them to the high ground of a peninsula. He quickly digs a trench with his axe and fills it with water, thus making an island. When Diomedes arrives, Hercules kills him with the very same axe he used to dig the trench and feeds his body to the mares to calm them down. In both versions, the ending’a pretty much the same with Hercules calming the horses with the flesh of Diomedes. He then binds their mouths and takes them back to king Eurystheus who sacrifices them to Hera. In other versions, they’re allowed to freely roam the planes of Argos where they permanently calm down. In yet another version, they’re sacrificed to Zeus. However, Zeus, dissatisfied with the mares, sent wolves, lions and bears to kill them.The ninth labour- Belt of HippolytaHippolyta, queen of the Amazons by Vittore CarpaccioAdmete, the daughter of king Eurystheus wanted the belt of Hippolyta, the queen of the amazons. The belt was a gift from her father Aries, the God of war. So, king Eurystheus charged Hercules with retrieving the belt as his ninth labour. Taking a few friends, Hercules set sail. He docked at the island of Paros which was inhabited by some sons of Minos. The sons managed to kill two of Hercules’s companions, sending Hercules on a rampage. He killed the two sons and threatened the inhabitants of the island that he wouldn’t leave until they gave him two men to replace his fallen comrades. Continuing their journey, they reach the court of Lycus. Hercules, at his request, kills King Mygdon and hands over his kingdom to his friend, Lycus who called the land Heraclea. The crew them set off for Themiscyra. Hippolyta, impressed with Hercules and his exploits had planned on giving him the belt as soon as he arrived. However, Hera infiltrated the Amazons and spread the seeds of discord, convincing them that the strangers were planning on carrying the queen of the Amazons away. The women then set out to confront Hercules. When he saw them, Hercules thought that Hippolyta was planning this treachery all along and never intended on handing over the belt. In the battle that ensued, he killed her, took the belt and returned to Eurystheus.**All images have been taken from greekerthanthegreeks.blogspot.in

The final labours of Hercules
 Roshan Rollands  
 15 February 2018  

Tenth labour- Cattle of GeryonThe cattle of Geryon by Jun-Pierre ShiozawaThis labour was for Hercules to acquire the cattle of Geryon, brilliant red cattle that were guarded by Orthrus, his two headed shepherd dog. Hercules, for this task, travelled to the island of Erytheia which lies in the far west. In order to do so, he had to cross the Libyan desert. After traveling for long, he got frustrated by the heat and let an arrow loose towards the sun. Helios, the God of the sun, seeing his “courage” decided to help him and gave him his golden chariot on which he crossed the sea from west to east every night. Hercules rode the chariot to Erytheia, the “red island” of the sunset. On his arrival, he was attacked by the two headed dog, Orthrus. Using his famed club, he kills him with a single blow to the head. The herdsman Eurytion arrived to help Orthrus but fell to Hercules’s club in the same way. Hearing the commotion, Geryon joined the fray, wielding three shields and three spears, three helmets on his shoulders. He was slain and fell to one of Hercules’s poisoned arrows which was shot with so much force that it pierced his forehead. Hercules then had to herd the cattle and take them back to Eurystheus. Hera however, sends a gadfly which bites them, sending them into a frenzy, thus dispersing them. Over the next year, Hercules retrieved them but Hera sent a flood to prevent them from crossing a river that stood in their way. Hercules filled the river with stones to decrease the level and crossed it with all the cattle. On returning to Eurystheus, the cattle were sacrificed to Hera.Eleventh labour- Golden apples of HesperidesThe apples of Hesperides by Remnev, AndreyTo begin this task, Hercules first had to find the island that had the golden apples. In order to do so, he caught the old man of the sea, a shape shifting sea God. In some variations, either in the beginning or towards the end of this task, Hercules runs into Antaeus, a man who was invincible as long as he touched his mother, Gaia (the Earth). Hercules fights him and kills him by choking him in a bear hug while picking him up. Hercules was then captured by king Busiris in Egypt who planned on making him the yearly sacrifice. But Hercules broke free if his chains and escaped. Hercules finally made his way to the garden of Hesperides. On the way, he encountered Atlas who was holding the heavens on his shoulders. Hercules persuaded Atlas to get him some apples because he was related to Hesperides. In exchange, he would relieve him of the heavens until he returned. Atlas on returning, broke the pact and said that he’d deliver the apples to Eurystheus. Hercules conned Atlas into taking his place once more saying that he’d take it back from him after he adjusts his cloak. Hercules doesn’t take Atlas’s place a second time and leaves with the apples. In other stories, he slays the dragon Ladon who protects the garden and the golden apples and then returns to he king triumphant.Twelfth labour- CerberusA statue of Hercules as he subdues CerberusThe final labour demanded Hercules to capture Cerberus, the three headed guardian of the underworld and return to the king. To prepare for his journey to the underworld, Hercules travels to Athens and is initiated in the Eleusinian mysteries. He then enters the underworld with Hermes and Athena as his guides. In the underworld, he meets Theseus and Pirithous, two companions who were trapped by Hades because they tried to covet Persephone. One tale tells of snakes coiling around their legs and then turning to stone, cutting off their escape. In another tale, he invites them for a banquet but reserved seats of forgetfulness for them. They sit in them and are ensnared as they lose their mission in mind. Hercules frees Theseus but a part of his thigh stuck to the chair. However, when he tries to free Pirithous, the earth shakes, thus showing how much he desires Persephone. Hercules then meets Hades and asks if he can take Cerberus above ground. Hades accepts on the condition that Hercules subdues Cerberus without using any weapons. Hercules overpowers Cerberus, slings it over his back and takes it back to Eurystheus who at first cowers in fear. He pleads with Hercules to take Cerberus away and said that he’d relinquish him of all duty if he did so. And so, Hercules’s debt comes to an end

We, the Innocent ............. by Dr. Navniit Gandhi

Wash your utensils with this dish-cleaner and sparkle your relationships…There is saffron in the soap…There is chocolate in this shampoo… there are almonds in the face cream!Drink this tea and refresh your relationships…Drink this soft-drink and live without fear…What fools are we, at times!!!All along, some of us have wasted our time; many precious years of life, trying to find out how to lead a perfect life… Probably, you too must have spent hours, trying to understand relationships, love and life. How stupid we have been… All we could have done is to switch on the Television, and sit before it with total faith. Yes, with total faith in our advertisements!!! We could have had the keys to all that we ever wanted in life. The key to beauty; to success; to a happy family life; the key to popularity and the key to health and blossoming relationships—all could have been at our feet in a matter of a few hours… How very silly of us, that we work hard and undergo ordeals and struggles, to fulfil our aspirations!God, bless us. We know not how innocent we are! The noble companies and even nobler advertising agencies are crying hoarse, and trying to better our lives. And, we don’t take them seriously? Using music, Bollywood stars and attractive photography—they spend crores trying to make all our dreams come true, and we do not take the ads seriously?Didn’t they tell us…Spray this deodorant and girls will fall head-over-heels in love with you…Eat this cereal and your husband will start noticing you…Add this in your children’s milk and they will become great scientists!Use this fairness cream and the most handsome and eligible bachelor will be at your feet…If you drink a particular beverage daily, your Boss will be impressed and you could take a trophy home for outstanding performance…It is all so clearly stated. The world of TV Ads is a great teacher. Just sit down… relax… and carefully watch the ads. We can learn how to magically swirl ten mouth-watering dishes—one or two each for every family member and yet, not a drop of sweat shall we shed or a strand of hair move. How? Because the secret, as we would learn, would lay in the dish-washing soap!Have you not seen the ad which teaches us that if we use a particular washing-powder, husband and wives would love each other more? How? Because, the clothes would become softer and so would the hands of the lady….But, what if the washing powder is used by the maid? Would her husband love her more, or ours???? Women, take note of this puzzle!!!Oh no! How much time have we wasted trying to seriously think on some matters, whereas the solutions and lessons were all so very simple!Had we known this secret earlier, we would have had the pleasure of seeing our mothers always young, fresh and happy despite their daily laborious chores. We could have had friends drooling over our looks, and we could have made smarter choices!!! Our brain could have been sharper; our nails and hair glistening; our clothes smarter; our body odour captivating; our sleep peaceful; our taste buds rejuvenated and of course, our relationships, happier. How innocent we have been… Imagine, the key to freedom from pimples, wrinkles, and fine lines was just a remote away!Use this tooth paste-- dance and swirl and live happily thereafter…Take a loan from our bank and we will help you discover the real ‘you’…This toilet cleaner will sparkle your bathroom and your life…There are easy and readymade formulae for increasing the growth of the brain of our children… There are easy solutions for killing germs in ten seconds!! And then, our children would never fall ill even if they gulp pizzas or burgers daily. Wish we could have sat before the televisions with total faith…. We could have given our children filtered water (using modern complicated processes) and they could have topped in their respective classrooms.Are you one of those who were searching in vain for means to raise your self-esteem? Well, did you not know that with a certain brand of tea, courage and confidence comes; and with a certain soft-drink—come tumbling out clever and creative ideas? A certain can of paint is what it takes or perhaps, a bathroom-freshner to raise your esteem in the eyes of your neighbours… Ha, how easy it is, isn’t it?Watch the Advertisements for solutions to all your problems… for answers to all your questions!!! It is not too late.Ah, by the way—have you been looking for a way out to please your in-laws? Oh, ohhh…. All you had to do was prove your intelligence by using a particular mosquito coil, and pride would have surfaced in their eyes and they would have hugged you happily!!!

Iwake up in the cashmere glow of my white sheet; the sun's shining bright and I go and get dressed in a lavender lilac dress. My unmade hair flies more than it should, as it flows away with the wind; it's raining now. The sun comes and goes; the rain never stops waiting. Their love is futile, but so is everything in love.The guy at the coffee shop smiles at me a little more today, more than he usually does everyday. I give a faint smile back. I sit down as I look at a stranger walk in, he wasn't one a summer ago. I can almost smell the daisies he got me, clutching them as he was nervous about our first date, I can remember our first date, the second, the third, and all of the others. I'm not great at remembering smells, but this smell is like a spell. And I do not know how to break a charm. It was love that I had in mind a summer ago, it is till now that he has a love for just himself.It's still raining even though the sun is still out, enough to drench my hair and my dress wet. I look at people running for cover; a woman goes running past me, after her hat. It is a complete mayhem though, but this is a feeling nothing can replace. I twirl my lilac dress and laugh, I laugh hard enough that I gather unwanted stern looks from strangers as the rain drops still dance with me, and I realise, I don't care about their opinions anymore.It's the funny feeling in my stomach that makes me laugh at nothing. I'm happy. I feel alive. Am I in love? Probably. And for the first time, with myself.#smblogcontest

IN$iDe the He@d of a girl
 Nandita Rani  
 11 March 2018  

A girl/women is the most complicated species on the planet earth. Well we all can agree to that..!! Have you ever seen a jumbled rubix cube? Yes exactly.. that is how a women's brain should look like. The are zillion self contradicting thoughts going on all the time. There is family, work, food, sex(yes we do think about sex..less then food though).Let me start with the most complicated one's first: LOVE ♥Our love for family is surreal, its like you touch my family and i will kill you. When it comes to the love of other gender, its very easy for us to get attracted to someone, but really difficult to keep holding the attraction and we always make the first move. Guys may think that they have initiated it but actually it just our dirty little mind games we like to play in the starting of a relationship. A girl always knows the next move of a guy & decides weather to encourage it or diminish it. A yes is always a yes for us but you need to concentrate on the NO. It may be a firm no, or a no which means maybe yes, or a no where you need to persuade a little to make it yes.Anger/Depression/Crying all of these go hand in hand. It starts with anger, changes to depression with time and the final result is crying to take it all off your chest. Though alcohol plays a part too in making things more miserable or may be lighter(depends on the amount of consumption).Well the last but not the least most prominent thing on a girl's head : Jealousy why god why? why didn't you made me thinner like my sister. You do tina has bigger boobs not me? why am i not as fair as kareena? why are hairs not as straight as neha? Well it never ends. This list goes on and on and on. Nonetheless we can never sustain in a world without girls and neither do we want so. #werock#dontmindme#loveall#smblogcontest

How my books changed me
 swarajya singh

Books became my gateway into this wild jungle of imagination. We all read books in order to receive formal education but my relationship with books is ever dynamic. I remember being 10, with 4 comic books in my hand eagerly waiting for my study table to be delivered to my house. I promised myself that I will study on this table and read on this table all the time. It was the perfect table with a little book rack attached to it. Soon, the books started coming in.My grandmother tucked me into bed every night, only after telling me hindi stories. So even before I could read, my relationship with stories had already begun. I started writing about my mundane life as if it was a wild adventure, after reading "The Diary Of a Young Girl" by Anne frank. It baffled me how I could connect to characters in these books, who lived in these in places I have never heard of. I feel like I could read more books and develop telepathic powers someday, just like Matilda. Winnie the poohtaught me to be kind in the most humblest way possible. In my imagination, I was a part of every story I read. I understood how stories have the power to change the way I look at the world.When Robert Frost walked the road not taken,he lightened this new sense of hope and courage in me. Poetry became my way of expressing myself. I began scribbling poems in english, on the margin of my notebooks. I found the kind of friends, I aspire to become in the perks of being a wallflower. I found a mentor when I spend my Tuesdays with Morrie, who taught me the importance of being compassionate, taught me about the fragility of life and the value of memories, taught me to love or perish. She taught what immense bravery and standing up for others selflessly entails, when she stood in the face of death and told the gunman "I am Malala". She moved me in ways I hadn't been moved before. When  I thought I was hitting rock bottom, the alchemist showed me how the possibility of having a dream come true makes life interesting, makes every morning worth waking up to and that the secret of life is falling seven times and getting up eight times.  Rupi Kaur put her vulnerabilities in few sentences, on a paper for the whole world to see. Being honestly herself, she gave the world an insight on what a revolution it is to just love yourself. I wish to take something from every book I read. To become a reflection of every character that somehow touches my life. The person I am is the aftermath of all the books that I've read.

Life, love and living
 Sandeep Dhaiya  
 13 March 2018  

Many, many years ago, a sage was meditating on a Himalayan peak. Majestic dales and solitary vales sprawled around were all aglow with the divine streak.Though the birds chirped songs, and rain poured down in throngs, he was unmovable, lost in a deep trance.In winters, icy cold storms blew and the snow around and over him was all aglow with its chilling primitiveness. His soul but was safe somewhere in the cosy warmth of transcendental realisation.In autumn, wind-fallen leaves sailed down with slumberous tumble, and ripe fruits fell proudly, adventurously for a juicy, pleasant crumble. He still was somewhere else when the nature opened these marvellous jewels from her treasure trove.In spring, wild flowers fully unfurled their fragrance and smile, and honey-bees engaged in dawn to dusk toil. He but was unmoved and transported into a state where the ecstasies of natural bounties don’t mean anything anymore.Summer’s warm days sprayed desultory, eerie uneasiness around, and cool nights proudly embraced this son with his soul heaven-bound. Still it didn’t matter. He was undisturbed and was silently moving on his meditative path.Once it was a full moon autumn night. A fairy was flying amid milky delight. A perfect calmness pervaded the solitary vales. Everything was asleep, bathed in the softest fluffy shades of white. The fairy flew low over the peaks glowing under the moonlight. The seer was lost in his trance in front of his cave, the beauty of nature sprawled around meaningless to him.She saw him and hovered around the sanctimonious air of his sagehood. A small, harmless mischief rustled in her young, innocent heart. She circled in the air above him. Her laughter touched the milky sea around and created soft ripples. Her unbelievably soft dress rustled in the gentle breeze born of her circles. It but did not have any effect on him. He was engrossed too deep in the cosmic balance beyond the sensory contradictions and dualities. The more she looked, the more was the urge in her to bring him back to the beauty of this world, to fetch him from the deep ocean where his soul had dived.His exquisitely masculine physique and persona created tempted sparks on her magic stick. She tried all juicily leering feminine tricks. But her desire-lorn swirls in the air failed to move him even a bit. Helplessly she descended onto the earth. There were almost tears of helplessness in her beautiful eyes. She sat in front of him with those rose-red lips pursed in a heart-breaking frown.Her marvellous eyes were lost in his handsome, bearded, well sculpted face. It was mesmerizing. There was not a single worldly trace on his face. She herself was caught in a trance and lost the sense of time and the laws of the fairyland. The night sped away as if in a jiffy.The day rose. The sun arrived with full earthly delight. There was terror in her eyes. The hope to return to her realm died. She had broken the law of her land by not returning on the same night after the brief terrestrial sojourn. The realisation crashed against her soft self like a thunderbolt. Her utmost sensuous bare shoulders heaved under the tremors of this unpardonable fault. A cry involuntarily tore through her slender throat. And then it was a still bigger violation.His serenely flowing meditative phrase met this sinful, full-stopping dot. His communion with the divinity was broken. His long-closed eyes opened. The world of his penance lay scattered. His fiercely burning eyes stared at the flower in sobs and sighs. Her large, flooded eyes pleaded for mercy. But the fire in his unforgiving eyes was unrelenting and cursing.The fabric of his serenity was torn. The sage thundered, “You proud, vain woman of egoistic beauty, become an ugly bush of thorns!”Mowed down by the spell of his cursing energy, an ugly bush stood in place of that angelic beauty. All shaken and ravaged, he left the place. A thorny branch, meanwhile, got entangled in his loin cloth, as if for meek, pleading forgiveness and brace. He but scornfully jerked it apart and headed to some other place for a new start.Time then took to its heels on swift horses. The seasons changed. The spring’s colourful patterns were rearranged. The summer’s warm kisses melted the snows. The autumn’s harvest uncomplainingly fell to the air’s chiding blows. The winter’s snowy blanket covered the peaks. And rains lashed down in stormy freaks.This pleasant wavering of nature, however, couldn’t shake the sage from the meditative maze high there in the hills. Faraway down the hills, the accursed bush was shrouded in thorny haze. It struggled to sprout fruits and flowers. Even cursing has a testing time against soft, innocent glow of purity. How can something having a fairy core remain ugly and thorny for too long? Her pure soul entombed in that thorny shrine prayed for penance. And see, a flower of her fruits sprouts forth!A flower blossomed among the thorns. So beautiful! It lit up with life among the thorns and deadly pale dark brown branches. It appeared juxtaposed by a miracle, like it had dropped from the heaven and got stuck there. It was the day when the enlightened sage arrived from the north. Contented with his cosmic realisation, he came down the beautiful dale. As he passed the bush, his purified soul sensed the thorny shrub’s plaintive wail. His feet disobeyed him and he couldn’t move. The lone flower among the thorns fell at his feet in holy-most obeisance and greet. He picked it up and was lost in its fragrance.The thorn was ugly. The flower so beautiful and fragrant! What contradiction! Flowery heaven and thorny hell together! The latter born of his cursing condemnation; the flower born of the beauty behind the thorny bars. It was a jolting earthly realisation. Hadn’t he broken the beautifully set laws?Torrents of repentance cut through him. He bid penance at the altar for a long time. His repenting self set around a reformative shrine. His soul drenched in painful chime. He braced the thorns with the love and affection purest of the pure. It gave him bleeding fingers so many times. He caressed and cared for it like it was the beautiful most flowery shrub. He was practicing his penance now, of love, of surrender, of repentance. What else can be bigger than these?When his soul had been salvaged of the sin, nobody could bet against her for a win. There she blossomed in front of him. Beauty, charm and grace filled to the brim. Her smile was forgetting and forgiving. It was the beacon of her penance, of love, of beauty. Inside the stony walls of his heart, a new luminosity was now thriving. The sage embraced her. She, who had been separated from her loved ones, got the earthling she had fallen for. Happiness, bliss and calm opened a new door to the start of a fresh cycle of life, love and humanity.All but the sage had been extinguished by the cataclysm. The lone and forlorn survivor, he had been striking at the doors of heaven with his endless questions. Now there was no more pursuit. The endless had manifested itself in a small sip of love. Now they lived as a man and a woman. New hopes, aspirations and offspring began to thrive.Thus were sown the seeds of another spell and cycle of life, of creation. Their unchecked love in those flowery vales left countless exotic trails. Gurgling brooks gave company to her primordially sensuous laughter. His instinct’s procreating sprouts mingled with the mirthful waters of her receptiveness.

CHAOS OF RELIGION

I approached him once.“People say you know much, but you rarely speak. Why this silence?” I asked.“What should I speak?” He enquired.“Religion, I guess” I replied.“What about it?” He asked.“Why so much of strife these days. Why instead of uniting us it is dividing us?” I asked.“At times, people don’t really understand simple logic. Maybe they don’t want to hear it” He said.“What is it?” I asked encouraging further explanation.“The path of religion is more about walking than discussions. Those who reverse it and focus more on debates and arguments become philosophers, intellectuals, and fanatics. Those who don’t, and concentrate on walking gradually realize something valuable in the process.” He said.“But why so?” I asked curiously.“Ego filled discussions and sermons are always easy. It enhances your image and self-worth and people start following you, while silent walking takes away your identification. It means consistent giving up of your inner turmoil and that scares us.”He replied.“Why it scares us?” I asked.“The idea of giving up is so scary that humans can give up their lives, but not their attitudes and beliefs.” He replied.I nodded in acceptance.“The words pointing towards the truth is not the truth itself, but a mere reflection of it just as you see a reflection of yourself in water.” He said.“What it means?” I asked.“Truth is beyond words and is in personal experience. The sages uttered these words from a state of realization. In the absence of that realization words become your identification and that is dangerous. You can go to any extent to defend them according to your need and to satisfy your greed. Sadly, the image of truth appears more pleasing than the realization of it. This is the chaos of religion.” He replied back.

BORN FREE TO LIVE IN A CAGE
 Padmini Ravindran  
 16 March 2018  

  All over the world, countries celebrate their independence day with great pride and gusto showcasing their strength and progress to be admired and awed by people. However, I wonder at times are we; human beings really free or liberated? Do we enjoy freedom in true sense? I’ll keep my thought process limited to India without going to the other parts of the world.Every human being according to me is free only at the time of birth. A baby has no worries about projecting the “right public image” and is happy doing anything and everything he wants to. As we grow, we are caged, shackled in many chains by the society- Social, cultural, emotional and lately technological.It starts when the baby (I’ll use ‘She’ as a pronoun as it encompasses ‘he’ too J!) is hardly a toddler. Parents love to show off his/her talents without any consideration for his/her moods and fancies. She has to sing or dance and entertain the relatives who are often least interested. Then there is a marathon for the best school in the city. The kid is again forced to mug up the likely questions to be asked at the interview, learn to behave in a certain manner at the age when she just wants to be left on her/his own.    Once at school the comparison starts with all the other children. Every parent wants the child to be the best - marvelling at studies, sports, debates and elocutions, arts, theatre, social etiquette and so on. In short she has to be a Superwoman, while the mothers sweat over every small detail like deciding what hobbies are “in”, what vitamin supplements to give the child for super-built body and extra-intelligent brain, what kind of clothes are in vogue for kids and so on. All advertisements put the pressure on parents to make a scientist/ doctor/ engineer or any professional (Please note that none off the advertisements think much of artists or farmersL! No wonders farmers have remained the most vulnerable lot in our “agrarian” economy for decades!). The harried parents, in turn pass on this frenzied madness on to their children. Every parent dreams of having a super successful child prodigy, irrespective of own talents that he has passed on in the child’s DNA at birth. We want our children to follow the career chart we have created for them taking in consideration the status, social acceptance, and money it will yield. What the child’s interests are is totally ignored.Once the school and college marathon is over and youth gets a plum job, then the other social pressures build up. A girl must learn to be graceful, super talented at juggling home and demanding career, must be having all the socially accepted attributes like – fair, tall, slim, social yet home-loving, educated yet sacrificing, modern yet with traditional values and the list is endless.This brings me to the fairness obsession in our country where most girls are bound to be wheat complexioned due to our geographic and climatic conditions. Having a dusky complexion is looked down upon and if you have a darker skin only God or fairness creams save you! I find the advertisements so ridiculous when a girl dreaming of a great career has to rely on fairness creams to prove her mettle! If she wants to remain single by choice then hell breaks loose. If she marries then her womanhood is not considered complete till she delivers a baby. Why I wonder, in a free country it becomes a privilege of all and sundry to barge into couple’s bedroom and discuss why are they not having kids and what could be wrong with them. Can we not let the parents decide when they want to bring in a life that is going to be their responsibility till they are alive?Men on the other hand are forced to bring home a handsome pay package and comparisons of how much comforts and luxury a neighbour can afford to give his wife vis- a -vis the poor husband becomes a main topic of contention. Once they become parents they too merrily join the same rat race that their parents had joined to ruin them.These are some of the socio-cultural shackles I strongly feel about. Emotional shackles too are somewhat intertwined in these as usually our Indian society loves to emotionally blackmail their loved ones to follow their commands. Log kya kahenge is the most dangerous epidemic that has been afflicted by Asian psyche. Social approval is a bug that has bitten all of us. Imagine the emotional state of a young girl when she is more than often rejected because she is NOT fair, slim or beautiful. She is most often an easy prey to depression. I wonder why we give so much importance to external attributes while totally ignoring the more important ones like nature, intelligence, compatibility etc. in a life partner. Are we shopping here for a curio to beautify home or wanting someone with whom we can share our lives! And same things go for men too - what with markets flooded with anti-balding treatments and all those fairness creams for men? He too is expected to earn well, be qualified with the most lucrative degree, have a macho figure etc. I often hear young girls asking for well sculpted men as their life partners. SO now the fire has reached even the other side of the society. At a young age he’s expected to offer all the comforts and luxuries when he’s still building his career!Added to all these cages, the worst shackle is the technology. We think human being created technology for comforts but today it has totally backfired on us impacting every aspect of the society. Just look around and see for yourself what have smart phones done to our lives! The downfall that started with the idiot box and further fuelled with the internet has been completed by the smart phones. Phones are getting smarter and humans are getting dumber. I’ve nothing against technology and if used sensibly it can be a great boon. We can now reach the entire world in a split second. Emails have become a passé with the advent of other more powerful and faster means of communication. Often Facebook and twitter has helped in reuniting people or in sending across a useful message. Today I too am saying what I feel thanks to this technology. We can surely not ignore the good things. However, we can’t turn a blind eye to the damage it does to our most profound institutions of marriage, family and society as a whole.  Families are fast disintegrating today as each one is happy to be in his on anda cell created by his Laptop, smart phone, personal TV or a tablet, and is constantly in his world with his headsets on. Cheating in marriages has never been so rampant and easy with the right to privacy. Virtual affairs ruin many marriages as one doesn’t understand that virtual love is bound to appear “perfect” and it’s only when you actually start life together you need to adjust and understand. Recently, a study revealed how social skills are being affected in this generation that spends most of its time in the virtual world. Family time is unheard of with each one immersed in his on virtual world. We forget that though wired from all sides we are not robots but human beings who are bound to need emotions like warmth, love and touch to thrive. The older generation who is not very tech savvy feels the brunt the most. They are mostly treated like a piece of furniture. The youth has no connect with parents leave alone grandparents. In our desire to connect across miles we have been disconnected from our own family.Family outings, dinners and gatherings do happen surprisingly even today but the most time and attention is hogged by these smart phones. Family time has become a joke with each member immersed in one’s cell phone- exchanging messages. Checking face book updates, updating status and so on.The family vacations are more for clicking selfies and check-ins to let the whole world on social media know the exotic place one is heading to. There have been many stand up comedies, what’s app forwards and tongue in cheek cartoons aimed at this but I feel we are quick to ignore these warning bells and laugh it off merely as a humour. So many have lost lives clicking selfies at dangerous spots but we are too slow to understand the implications. Are we really a generation of dimwits and our cell phones smarter than us? Only God save us in such situation…!All pictures Courtesy- https://unsplash.com

Post break up , we normally face three phases.
 Vishal Singh  
 16 March 2018  

Negative Phase: A phase where we keep disturbed, angry and annoyed all the time from the person who left. We keep abusing, cursing that person in alone, almost everytime. We cry but do not get peace even after weeping. The mind doesn't get settled anywhere. Bad thoughts overcome our senses. Even friends and family seems enemy, we start hating love and relationships.This phase needs patience.Neutral Phase: We stop abusing and cursing the Ex and start remembering him/her in alone. Tears start to come out at every moment we remember. As tears fall down, it gives relief to the heart. It happens only when we are alone because in this phase we start liking being with friends and family. Studies and work keep us busy. We start feeling annoyed from the loneliness and need a partner so that we can enjoy.This phase needs acceleration and determination.Growing Phase: When we step up and decide that now it is not gonna work like before. Once again we start going around with people to make a relationship as phase 1 and phase 2 teach us a lot of lessons. We start shaking head on the moments that we wasted with our Ex, and moments happened during the day bring a smile on our lips. By reaching this phase we understand one important thing that" Always a start is needed to get out of the bad phases and no phase is permanent in life. " Once we understand this statement, means we are fully Healed.

Does God realy exist on mountain Kailash?

Mount Kailash,a holy mountain not only for we hindus but for most of the religion like buddhist and jains are now under certain controversies for its location, sudden climate change and unsuccesssful attempts to reach to the peak of the mountain by many mountaineers who give one of the strangest expalanation for not accomplishing their mission to reach to its peak. So here we will go through the detailed information about our sacred mountain Kailash.so first of all we will see its religious significance that what this mountain mean for different religions like for we hindus it is the abode of the god of gods Mahadev also known as Shiva, Shankar and a thousands of names through which we can refer him to.So let's begin with JainismIn this religion mount Kailash is also known by the name Mount Meru. the believers of Jainism religion say that the first Jain Tirthankara,Rishabhanatha attained Moksha(liberation) on the mount Ashtapada, the mountain which is  just next to the mount kailash.HinduismAs already told above in hinduism the Mountain  Kailash is belived to be the abode of our beloved lord shiva, the adiyogi, the anadiyogi. Here he live along with his wife accompanied by two childrens i.e Kartika and Ganesh.According to charles Allen, a British freelance writer and a popular historian, one description in the Vishnu Purana  states that its four faces are made of Crystals which are:- ruby, gold and lapis lazuli. Mount Kailash is  also declared as the  pillar of the world and is located at the heart of six mountain ranges representing a lotus.Buddism Like Jainism, in  buddhist text too it is refered by the name of Mountain Meru. and Just like we  hindus, it is a major piligramage site for Buddhist too. Vajrayana (various Buddhist tradition for tantra and mantra) buddhists  believes that mount kailash is the abode of Buddha Cakrasamvara(also known as Demchok) who represents supreme bliss. BonBon, a religion native to Tibet, says that the entire mystical region and Kailash,  to which they refered to as the  "nine-story Swastika Mountain", is the  Axis Mundi, Tagzig olmo Lung Ring.Now since we are over about the beliefs of different reiligion about mount Kailash we should now go to the facts about this mysterious mountain and learn whether the  god is realy there on the mountain?and whether he  is the one who is preventing these mountainneers from climbing this sacred mountain or abode of his.So, here you go:-1. Mount everest, the highest peak in the world has an altitude of 8848m while mount Kailash has an altitude of just 6638m.The mysteroiuness lies in the fact that till now around 4000 peoples have climbed mountain Everest but not a single being has been able to reach the peak of mount Kailash.2. A pact was made among climbers to not to scale those mountains which were considred holy by any religion and mount kailash is not only considred sacred by only one  religion but four. well, some were not able to agree by this pact and finally  the british climbers Huge Ruttledge and Lt col Wilson tried their hands But mysteroiusly  ran out of time and poor climbers! have to return with bare hands.3. Many adventurers and climbers have claimed the sudden change in  weather conditons there. and it has been observed that nails and hairs grow faster than usual. Truly god has some presence there otherwise it wouldn't have been possible for anyone to stop those passionate adventuorers and climbers from achieving their feet.Man has become so technologically strong these days that it can unleash any mystery of nature but we are humans, the creation of god and our all powers and creations are absolute to zero in front of god.that is our limit and we have to admit it anyway. In this context once Reinhold Messner, who condemned the Spanish plans for climbing the sacred mountain, saidIf we conquer this mountain, then we conquer something in people's souls. So, what do you think guys. Is lord shiva still residing there?well i kept my opinion now its your turn. comment below to let me know what you feel.#smblogcontest

मैं 19 से 25 फरवरी 2018 के दौरान छुट्टी पर गाँव में था। एक दिन मुंबई से मेरे मित्र हंसराज जी का फोन आता है और वे पूछते हैं कि मेरी मुंबई वापसी कब होगी। कारण पूछने पर उन्होंने बताया कि वाराणसी से हमारे साझा मित्र एवं एम.ए. में सहपाठी रहे राजकुमार जी एक विवाह समारोह में शामिल होने के लिए 24 फरवरी को मुंबई आ रहे हैं, इसलिए उनकी इच्छा है कि थाना में 25 या 26 फरवरी की शाम को अपनी मित्र मंडली किसी जगह जुटे और गपशप के बाद आसपास के किसी होटल में डिनर किया जाए। वे यह कार्यक्रम 25 फरवरी की शाम को रखना चाहते थे किंतु मेरी मुंबई वापसी 25 फरवरी की देर शाम को होने के कारण उन्होंने यह कार्यक्रम 26 फरवरी की शाम को रखने का निश्चय किया।मेरे और राजकुमार के अलावा उन्होंने और किन-किन सहपाठी मित्रों को आमंत्रित किया है, यह मैंने नहीं पूछा। मुझे तो इस बात से ही खुशी हुई कि एक लंबे अरसे के बाद हम लोग मिलेंगे, हालचाल होगा, जमकर ठहाके लगेंगे और हम एक साथ बैठकर चाय/कॉफी पिएंगे और खाना खाएंगे। मुंबई जैसे महानगर में ऐसा अवसर मिलना या अवसर निकाल लेना किसी चमत्कार से कम नहीं माना जाता। यह बात इस महानगर के बाशिंदे अच्छी तरह से जानते और मानते हैं। संयोग से मैं 5 फरवरी से 2 मार्च 2018 तक छुट्टी पर चल रहा था, अतः इस कार्यक्रम से मुझे कोई दिक्कत नहीं थी।       हंसराज जी ने बताया था कि 26 फरवरी को शाम 6.30 बजे हम लोग थाना स्टेशन से थोड़ी दूर स्थित तलावपाली तालाब के पास छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज की मूर्ति के सामने स्थित परिसर में मिलेंगे और गपशप करेंगे। मैं शाम को करीब 5 बजे अपने घर (शांति पार्क, मीरा रोड) से मीरा रोड स्टेशन के पास स्थित टीएमसी बस स्टॉप पर पहुँचा और आते ही पाया कि थाना जानेवाली बस खड़ी थी जिसमें बाईं ओर मुझे एक विंडो सीट मिल गई। थोड़ी देर में कंडक्टर आया और मैंने टिकट कटा लिया। 5 मिनट बाद बस चल पड़ी। अभी मैं घर से महज 2 किलोमीटर दूर ही आ पाया था कि मेरे मोबाइल की घंटी बज उठी। देखा दूसरी ओर मित्र अनिल सिंह थे।       अनिल इस समय आंध्र प्रदेश में पूर्वी गोदावरी जिला में एक राष्टीयकृत बैंक की शाखा में शाखा प्रमुख के रूप में तैनात हैं। इनका परिवार यहीं कांदिवली के ठाकुर विलेज इलाके में रहता है जहां इनके छोटे भाई भी अपने परिवार और माताजी के साथ रहते हैं। अनिल बीच –बीच में छुट्टी लेकर मुंबई आते रहते हैं। अनिल ने मुझसे कहा कि मैं आगे फाउंटेन होटल बस स्टाप पर उतर जाऊँ क्योंकि वे भी अपनी कार से थाना ही जा रहे हैं, अतः मुझे पिकअप कर लेंगे। मुझे भी यह प्रस्ताव अच्छा लगा क्योंकि वहाँ से हम साथ – साथ बोलते – बतियाते जाते और इस प्रकार से समय का सदुपयोग भी हो जाता। अनिल मेरे पुराने दोस्त हैं और मेरा इनसे परिचय अगस्त 1986 से है जब मैं कुछ महीने एम. ए. (अर्थशात्र) का विद्यार्थी था और हम मुंबई विश्वविद्यालय के कालीना परिसर में लेक्चर अटेंड करने जाया करते थे। फरवरी 1987 में एक सरकारी बीमा कंपनी में अनुवादक की नौकरी मिलने पर मैंने ड्रॉप ले लिया और जुलाई 1987 में एम.ए. (हिन्दी) में प्रवेश लिया जिसके सुबह के बैच की कक्षाएं मुंबई वि.वि. के फोर्ट  परिसर में चलाई जाती थीं। अनिल सिंह ने अपनी पढ़ाई जारी रखी और फरवरी 1988 में वे भी उसी बीमा कंपनी में अनुवादक के रूप में भर्ती हुए। जुलाई 1988 में अनिल ने भी एम.ए. (हिन्दी) में प्रवेश ले लिया यानी एम.ए. (हिन्दी) में आप मुझसे एक साल जूनियर थे। मुझे आज भी याद है, मेरी एम.ए. की किताबें और मूल नोट्स आपने ही मेरी परीक्षाएँ समाप्त होते ही आग्रहपूर्वक मुझसे मांग लिए थे।       अनिल शुरू से ही मनमौजी, खिलंदड़ और जिंदगी को फक्कड़ अंदाज में जीनेवाले व्यक्ति रहे हैं। कालीना परिसर में 5 लोगों का हमारा एक ‘पूरबिया गुट’ था जिसमें मेरे अलावा, अनिल, एक और अनिल सिंह (जो बिहार से थे), अरविंद त्रिपाठी और वीरेंद्र तिवारी (इतिहास में एम ए के छात्र) शामिल थे। लेक्चर के बाद अक्सर हम कैंटीन के सामने वाले लॉन की हरी घास पर घंटों अड्डा जमाते और आगे की योजनाएं और सपने साझा करते, खूब हंसी-मज़ाक और टांग-खिंचाई करते और अपनी टूटी-फूटी और बेढब अँग्रेजी में प्रोफेसरों की नकल उतारते। हम सभी निम्न मध्यमवर्गीय परिवारों से थे, अतः हमारी जेबें भी अमूमन खाली ही रहतीं। हम कैंटीन में नास्ते-चाय के लिए बैठते तो अपनी फटेहाली का रोना रोते और दूसरे से बिल चुकाने की चिरौती – विनती करते अथवा अपनी-अपनी जेबें झाड़कर कलेक्शन जुटाते। मुझे याद है ज्यादातर अवसरों पर बिल मैं ही चुकाता क्योंकि कैंटीन चलने का प्रस्ताव अक्सर मेरा ही रहता और दूध का पारिवारिक व्यवसाय होने के नाते मेरी आर्थिक स्थिति थोड़ी बेहतर थी। मेरी अनिल से जब भी मुलाकात होती है, आज भी हम वर्ष जुलाई 1986 से मई 1989 के उन दिनों को यादों को ताजा कर दो चार ठहाके जरूर लगाते हैं।       हमारी कार घोडबंदर रोड से थाना शहर की ओर तेज गति से दौड़ी जा रही थी। हम गायमुख से थोड़ा आगे ही पहुँच थे कि आज की हमारी चौपाल की उत्सव मूर्ति यानी अग्रज राजकुमार सिंह का कॉल आता है और वे बताते हैं किइस समय वे मुलुंड के अरुण शर्मा जी के साथ है और थाने के लिए निकलने वाले हैं। मैं आज की चौपाल में शामिल होने वाले अन्य मित्रों के बारे में उनसे पूछता हूँ तो वे बताते हैं कि हंसराज के अलावा खारघर से निर्मल, और कल्याण से धर्मराज भी आ रहे हैं। जबकि अंबरनाथ के साथी हृदयनारायण गांव में होने और खारघर के डॉ. श्यामबाबू अवस्थ होने के कारण नहीं आ पा रहें हैं। यानी हम 7 लोग थाना के तलावपाली संगम में भाग लेने वाले थे. मेरी यादों की रील रह-रहकर फ्लैश बैक मोड में चली जा रही थी। वर्ष 1987 से 1990 तक का वह समय याद आता है जब हम सभी एम.ए. (हिंदी) के छात्र थे और परीक्षा पासकर अपनी अपनी आजीविका और कैरियर को और बेहतर बनाने की जद्दोजहद में लगे थे। हमारे सहपाठियों में एक और जहां 21 साल के युवा थे दूसरी और 40-45 के अधेड़ भी थे। इनमें क्लर्क, अनुवादक, अध्यापक, प्राइवेट नौकरी वाले और कुछ किसी भी तरह का रोजगार ढूंढ रहे साथी शामिल थे। लगभग 15-20  लोगों का हमारा एक बड़ा समूह था जिसके निर्विवाद अगुआ राजकुमार जी थे क्योंकि एक तो उनका लंबा ऊँचा कद, रोबदार आवाज और दूसरे अपने बैंक की यूनियन का पदाधिकारी होने के नाते उनके प्रति स्वाभाविक सम्मान हमारे मन में जगह बना ही लेता था।      चलिए इस ‘सतरंगिया मित्र मंडली’ के अन्य सदस्यों के बारे  में भी अत्यंत संक्षेप में आप सबको बताता चलूँ। राजकुमार जी मेरे जिले (जौनपुर) के ही आशानंदपुर गाँव के मूल निवासी हैं जो मेरे गांव से मात्र 9-10 कि.मी. दूरी पर है और इनके गाँव से 4-5 कि.मी. दूरी पर मेरी मझली बुआ का गाँव तुलसीचक है। मैं जब भी गाँव जाता हूँ तो अपनी मझली बुआ के गाँव अवश्य जाता हूँ। अतः हर साल मेरा राजकुमार जी के गाँव जाने का योग बन ही जाता था। मैं उनकी माताजी और पिताजी से भी अवश्य मिलता था। मुंबई में तब आप जोगेश्वरी के बहरामबाग इलाके में रहते थे। जब एम.ए करने बाद आप अपने बैंक में राजभाषा अधिकारी के रूप में पदोन्नत हुए तो आपका कोलकाता तबादला हो गया। तब से मुंबई का साथ जो छूटा तो बस छूट ही गया। आप कोलकाता से पटना, लखनऊ, आजमगढ़ और अंत में बनारस स्थानांतरित हुए और वर्ष 2016 में वरिष्ठ प्रबंधक पद से सेवानिवृत्त होने पर बनारस में ही सेटल हो गए हैं। आपकी 4 बेटियाँ और 2 सुपुत्र हैं। चारों बेटियाँ विवाहित है और अपने-अपने परिवार में सुखी हैं। बड़े बेटे का भी विवाह हो गया है और उसे 3 साल का एक बेटा है। छोटे सुपुत्र दंत चिकित्सा में एमडीएस की पढ़ाई की पढ़ाई कर रहे हैं और भगवतकृपा रही तो बर्ष 2018 के अंत में या 2019 के पूर्वार्द्ध में इनके विवाह का योग बन सकता है। राजकुमार जी से मिलने मैं कोलकाता, पटना भी जाता रहा और बनारस में तैनात होने पर तो हर यात्रा में इनसे अनिवार्य रूप से भेंट होती ही है। राजकुमार जी यारों के यार और ज़िंदादिल इंसान हैं। संबंधों को सहेजना और उन्हें बनाए रखना आपकी खूबी है।      आज की हमारी चौपाल के सहयोगी अरुण शर्मा जी आजमगढ़ के मूल निवासी हैं और हममें सबसे वरिष्ठ अर्थात 71 वर्ष के हैं। किन्तु अपनी अच्छी फिटनेस और प्रसन्नचित्त स्वभाव के कारण 60 वर्ष से अधिक के नहीं लगते हैं। आप साइकिल निर्माण  से जुड़ी सार्वजनिक क्षेत्र की एक कम्पनी में अधिकारी थे। किन्तु नब्बे के दशक में निजीकरण/उदारीकरण की आँधी के चलते अनेक सरकारी कंपनियों की तरह आपकी कंपनी में भी ताले लग गए और शर्मा जी को 53 वर्ष की उम्र में ही वीआरएस लेना पड़ा। किंतु कर्मठ और उद्यमशील शर्मा जी ने प्राइवेट कंपनी ज्वाइन कर ली और वहां लगभग 12 वर्ष तक कार्य करने के बाद अलविदा कहा। मित्रों से मिलते तुरंत भोजपुरी भाषा में गँवई सरलता के साथ वार्तालाप करना आपकी एक ऐसी खास विशेषता है जो आज बहुत कम लोंगों में देखने को मिलती है। आपकी दो बेटियाँ है जो विवाहित हैं और इकलौता बेटा भी विवाहित है और अच्छी नौकरी में है। बहू भी शिक्षिका है। बेटे-बहू के साथ आप सुखी रिटायर्ड जीवन बिता रहे है।       अवध बिहारी निर्मल यानी हम सबके लिए केवल ‘निर्मल’ जिंदादिल और विनोदी स्वभाव का साथी है। जिन्दगी और भाग्य ने इन्हें कई बार मुश्किलों में डाला। कई लोगों ने इनकी सीधाई और सरलता का गलत फायदा उठाकर ठगी की और इनके द्वारा उधार दी गई राशि को डकार गए। किंतु इस भाई ने इन घटनाओं की चुभन और नकारात्मकता को अपने भीतर नहीं आने दिया और अपनी इंसानियत, अपनी सामाजिकता और अपने परोपकारी स्वभाव को आज भी कायम रखा है। हम मित्र इन्हें कई बार सतर्क, दुनियादार बनने और अपने घर-परिवार तक ही सीमित रहने की सलाह देते रहे है किंतु यह भाई अपनी फितरत से बाज नहीं आता और अनचाही मुसीबतों/आफतों को दावत देता रहता है। अगर कोई मित्र, रिश्तेदार या सहकर्मी आधी रात को किसी परेशानी में पड़ने पर निर्मल को याद करे तो यह साथी आधी रात को भी मदद के लिए आगे आने से नहीं हिचकेगा। निर्मल स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय के अंतर्गत आने वाले मुंबई स्थित एक संस्थान में हिन्दी अधिकारी है और खारघर में रहता है।       हमारे मित्र धर्मराज मिश्र जी अप्रैल 2017 में लंबी सेवा के बाद भारतीय बैंक संघ से सेवानिवृत्त हुए हैं। आपका शांत स्वभाव, मितभाषिता और मिलनसारिता आपको खास बनाती है। जीवन में संघर्ष करते हुए कालबादेवी के एक मारवाड़ी सेठ के यहां 300 रूपये वेतन पर टाइपिस्ट के रूप में नौकरी शुरु कर आईबीए में वाइस प्रेसिडेंस ग्रेड से रिटायर होने की आपकी यात्रा भी कम प्रेरक नहीं है। एक ऐसा व्यक्ति जिसने आठवीं कक्षा के बाद अंग्रेजी विषय नहीं लिया था। मैट्रिक परीक्षा दो प्रयासों में पास की हो और इंटर, बीए की परीक्षा प्राइवेट परीक्षार्थी के रूप में मैं उत्तीर्ण की हो वह व्यक्ति आगे चलकर अपने स्वाध्याय, लगन और अभ्यास से एक दक्ष अनुवादक बन जाता है और अपने संस्थान के प्रकाशनों के लिए कुशलता से संपादन सहयोग भी देता है। एमए परीक्षा आपने प्रथम श्रेणी में उत्तीर्ण की और अपने संस्थान में राजभाषा अधिकारी के रूप में पदोन्नत किए गए। आगे चलकर आपने अपनी संस्था के सामान्य विभाग के दायित्व भी सफलतापूर्वक सँभाले। आपके दो पुत्रियां और एक पुत्र हैं। एक बेटी और इकलौते बेटे का विवाह हो गया है और दूसरी बेटी के रिश्ते के लिए प्रयास जारी हैं. मित्रों के सुख-दुख में सहभागी होना और सहयोग के लिए सदैव तत्पर रहना आपकी विशिष्ट खासियत (यूएसपी) है।       हमारी इस चौपाल के सूत्रधार और मेजबान हंसराज जी इंडियन औवसीज बैंक की कल्याण शाखा के प्रभारी (मुख्य प्रबंधक) है। आपने बारहवीं (विज्ञान) करने के बाद मुंबई के एक प्रतिष्ठित तकनीकी संस्थान से वस्त्र प्रौद्योगिकी में 3 वर्षीय डिप्लोमा किया था और कुछ अरसे तक मुंबई की एक नामी टेक्सटाइल कंपनी में सुपरवाजर के रूप में नौकरी भी की। किंतु शिफ्टों में ड्यूटी और अबौद्धिक माहौल आपको रास नहीं आया और आपने प्रतियोगी परीक्षा पास कर बैंक की सेवा ज्वाइन कर ली। बैंक में राजभाषा के क्षेत्र में कैरियर की अच्छी संभावना और अपने रुझान को देखते हुए आपने 1987 में हिन्दी विषय में एम ए करने का निर्णय लिया और हमारे बैच के साथी बने। हंसराज भी हँसमुख स्वाभाव के जिंदादिल व्यक्ति हैं। पढ़ाई में आपकी हमेशा से रुचि रही है। आपने भारतीय बैंकिंग एवं वित्त संस्थान की 2 परीक्षाएं भी पास की हैं। एम.ए. परीक्षा आपने प्रथम श्रेणी में उत्तीर्ण की थी। बैंक की सेवा के दौरान आपका भी कोलकाता, नासिक, वापी, पुणे, नई दिल्ली तबादला हुआ। किंतु आपने मुंबई के अपने पुराने साथियों से हमेशा संपर्क बनाए रखा। आप जब कभी मुंबई आते तो पुराने साथियों से अवश्य भेंट करते। आपने चर्चगेट के सम्राट होटल में हम मित्रों को कई बार दावत दी। कुछ महीने पहले ही आपकी मुंबई वापसी हुई है और आप थाना स्थित अपने बैंक क्वाटर्स में रहते है। आपका इकलौता पुत्र शशांक आईटी इंजीनियर है और अमेरिका में नौकरी करता है। दिसंबर 2017 में शशांक की शादी हो गई है और बहू भी सॉफ्टवेयर इंजीनियर है। आपकी श्रीमती भी कुशल गृहणी और अच्छी गेजबान हैं। आप दोस्तों से मिलने –जुलने, उनके सुख-दुःख में सहभागी होने और साथियों की मदद करने में हमेशा आगे रहते हैं।       ‘संतोष यह आपने क्या किया? थाना शहर में जाने के लिए हमें बाईं तरफ के रोड से होकर जाना था और आप भिवंड़ी-नासिक की ओर जाने वाले फ्लाईओवर पर चले आये?’ अनिल ने कुछ रोष से ड्राईवर से कहा तो लगा कि वह भी हमारी बातों में मशगूल हो गया था जिसकी वजह से रास्ता चूक गया। पिछले 10-12 वर्षा में मुंबई से सटे थाना शहर का मानों कायाकल्प ही हो गया है। पहले कापूरबावड़ीया मानपाड़ा के आगे रिहाइशी बस्तियाँ कम और कंपनी-कारखाने ही अधिक हुआ करते थे। लोग घोड़बंदर रोड से शाम को पैदल जाने से हिचकते थे। किंतु एक-एक कर लगभग सभी कारखाने-कंपनियां बंद होती गईं अथवा अन्य शहरों में स्थापित/स्थानांतरित कर दी गईं और रियल इस्टेट की बढ़ती मांग के चलते इन कंपनियों की ज़मीनों पर बड़े-बड़े आलीशान रिहाइशी और कमर्शियल कॉम्प्लेक्स और माल बन गए। आज घोड़बंदर रोड से गुजरते हैं तो सड़क के दोनों ओर 25-30 मंजिलो के टॉवरों की कतारें दिखाई देती हैं और लगता है जैसे हम किसी यूरोपीय देश के बड़े शहर से होकर गुजर रहे है। दो दशकों पहले 5-6 लाख की आबादी वाले झीलों-तालाबों के इस शहर की आबादी अब 20 लाख से ऊपर हो गई है किंतु अधिकांश तालाब लुप्त हो गए है। फिर भी गनीमत है कि येऊर पहाड़ी से एक तरफ और दूसरी ओर समुद्री खाड़ी से घिरे होने के कारण इस नगर में अब भी काफी हरियाली मौजूद है जो आँखों (और मन को भी) को बहुत सुकून देती है।       खैर! कुछ कि.मी. की अतिरिक्त यात्रा कर और थोड़ा सा लांगकट लेकर दो-तीन जगह पूछते –पाँछते हम तलावपाली यानी जांभली नाका पहुँच गए और एक निरापद जगह पर कार पार्क कर शिवाजी महाराज की प्रतिमा की ओर पैदल ही चल पड़े। सबसे पहले हम दोनों ही यहाँ पहुँच थे। कुछ देर बात अरुण शर्मा और राजकुमार जी आए और अंत में हंसराज, धर्मराज और निर्मल एक साथ आए। संभवतः धर्मराज जी हंसराज की कल्याण शाखा में गए होंगे और दोनों एक साथ थाना आए होंगे जहाँ उन्हें निर्मल मिल गया होगा।       हम सातों साथी जब जुटे तो लगा कि कैलेडर की तारीख 30 साल पीछे जाकर किसी तारीख पर ठहर गई है। यूँ लगा जैसे हममे से किसी को नई नौकरी मिली हो या किसी को पदोन्नति मिली हो और हम मरीन लाइंस के‘बलवास’ या ‘सुरुचि’ होटल या चर्चगेट के सम्राट होटल में दावत के लिए एकत्रित हुए हैं। वही उमंग, वही उत्साह और एक-दूसरे की उसी तरह टाँग खिंचाई और मस्ती-मजाक। सब कुछ जैसे फिर से साकार हो उठा था। आज की इस चौपाल में हमारी पुरानी स्मृतियाँ थीं, गुजरे जमाने के सुनहरे पल थे., खट्टे-मीठे अनुभव थे। ‘जो भी है क्या कम है’ का दर्शन भाव था और जीवन को भरपूर जी लेने की ललक और प्यास थी। हम जहाँ बैठे थे, उसके इर्द-गिर्द कई युवा जोड़े और युवातियों के झुंड भी मौजूद थे जो हमरी भदेस बातों, गँवई हँसी-मजाक और अनायास और ज़ोर से लगनेवाले ठहाकों से अक्सर चौंके उठते थे और हमारी ओर हैरत और गुस्से से ताकने लगते थे। लेकिन हमें उनकी फिक्र कहां थी?      शुभम सरोवर होटल में स्वरूचि भोजन करने के बाद और ‘टिपटॉप स्वीट्स’ की रस मलाई और रसगुल्लों का भोग लगाने के बाद हमारी चौपाल कुछ देर के लिए फिर से सड़क पर जमीं क्योंकि हम एक अरसे के बाद मिले थे और चाहते थे कि और ज्यादा वक्त एक साथ बिताया जाए। किन्तु हमें विदा होना ही था क्योंकि अगले दिन किसी को सुबह काम पर जाना था तो दो मित्रों को फ्लाइट पकड़नी थी। तलावपाली की यह शाम हमारी सुखद स्मृतियों में अपनी जगह बना चुकी थी।       मैं, अनिल और राजकुमार वापसी में कार में साथ थे और हमारी चर्चा अब घर-परिवार विशेष रूप से आज की युवा पीढ़ी की ओर मूड गई। हमने महसूस किया की हमारी पीढ़ी के संघर्षों, सपनों, समाजिकताओं और पारिवारिक मूल्यों की तुलना में आज की पीढ़ी के सपने और जीवनशैली बिलकुल अलग है। विकास और आधुनिकता के साथ कदमताल करते महानगरीय जीवन शैली में यह तो होना ही था। अगर आज की पीढ़ी ज्यादा आत्मकेंद्रित और सुविधाभोगी दिखाई दे रही है तो उसके लिए हम सब भी कुछ कम जिम्मेदार नहीं हैं। हमारे दौर में माता-पिता से केवल यह अपेक्षा की जाती थी कि वे अपने बच्चों की ठीक-ठाक परवरिश कर दें और उन्हें पढ़ा- लिखा दें, बाकी बच्चे जानें और उनका भाग्य जाने। हममें से लगभग सभी ने अपने बचपन और किशोरावस्था में अभाव झेले हैं। हम बारोजगार बाद में हुए, विवाहित या बाल-बच्चेदार पहले हुए। हमारे संयुक्त परिवार थे, अतः वैयक्तिक आकांक्षाओं का क्षितिज्ञ लगभग अनुपस्थित ही था। किंतु आज हम स्वयं चाहते हैं कि हमारे बच्चों को संघर्ष न करना पड़े, अभाव न झेलना पड़े। हम कर्ज लेकर और अपनी इच्छाओं को ताक पर रखकर बच्चों को पढ़ा रहे हैं। उनकी नौकरी की चिंता में गले जा रहे हैं और उनके लिए बड़ा घर-फ्लैट खरीदने/बनाने के चक्कर में अपनी जीवन भर की कमाई को होम कर हे हैं। हम चाहते हैं कि अपने पोते-पोतियों का भविष्य भी सुरक्षित कर दें ताकि अंतिम यात्रा का जब बुलावा आए तो कोई पछतावा न हो।       मैं पिछले दिनों अपनी एक वरिष्ठ सहयोगी से, जो कुछ ही महीनों में सेवानिवृत्त होने वाली हैं, बातें कर रहा था तो उन्होंने बताया कि यूरोपीय और अमेरिकी देशों में लगभग हर व्यक्ति अपनी वसीयत में अपनी संपत्ति/ जमा पूंजी में से अपने बच्चों के लिए 30-40 प्रतिशत से ज्यादा हिस्सा नहीं छोड़ता है। शेष 50-60 प्रतिशत धन वह समाज की भलाई और अन्य परोपकारी कार्यों में लगी स्वयंसेवी संस्था/संस्थाओं को दान कर जाता है। वहां व्यक्ति मानता है कि यदि यह धन उसने खुद अर्जित किया है तो उसके उपयोग और बँटवारें का फैसला भी वह खुद करेगा और अपने देश-समाज को भी प्रतिदान में यथासंभव अवश्य देगा। जबकि हमारे देश में एक-दो उद्योगपतियों को छोडकर वड़ा से बड़ा धनकुबेर भी सिर्फ अपने परिवार (जो ज्यादा बड़ा नहीं होता है) के बारे में ही सोचता है। वह चाहता है कि वह और उसका परिवार दुनिया के सबसे बड़े अमीरों में गिने जाए। देश और समाज और यहाँ की बदहाली- बेकारी से उनका न के बराबर सरोकर होता है। मानो वह मानता है कि यह काम तो सिर्फ सरकारों का है वे ही देखें।       व्यक्ति जब अभावों और संघर्षों की भट्टी में तप कर अपनी मंजिल पाता हैं तो उसकी सुखानुभूति सदैव उसके चेहरे और आचरण में प्रतिबिंबित होती है। हौसले और मेहनत से ही ग्रेस मार्क के साथ साधारण अंकों के साथ एम.ए. (अर्थशास्त्र) करने वाले अनिल सरकारी बैंक में ऊँचे ओहदे पर पहुँचते हैं। मुंबई की बेस्ट की क्लर्की छोडकर राजकुमार सिंह बैंक की सेवा में आते हैं और सन 2002 में रोड एक्सीडेंट में सिर पर गहरी चोटें लगने और दाहिने हाथ में फ्रेक्चर के चलते एक समय कलम तक पकड़ पाने की असमर्थता के बावजूद अपने ऊंचे मनोबल से फिर उठ खड़े होते हैं और अच्छे पद पर पहुँचकर लंबी सेवा के बाद सेवानिवृत्त होते हैं। इंजीनियरिंग की पढ़ाई के बावजूद हंसराज सिंह बैँक की सेवा में आकर अपनी कर्मठता से मुख्य प्रबंधक बनते हैं। कम अंकों के बावजूद अवध बिहारी निर्मल सरकारी दफ्तर में अधिकारी ग्रेड़ में नियुक्त पाते हैं। 8वीं कक्षा के बाद स्कूल में अँग्रेजी विषय न पढ़ने के बावजूद धर्मराज मिश्र बैंकिंग संस्था के अच्छे पद पर पहुँचते हैं और 11वीं कक्षा में ‘प्रमोटेड’ तरीके से पास होने वाला मेरे जैसा कोई ‘पगला’ भी अपनी मंजिल तय कर लेता है। 10 गुना 15 फीट के विक्रोली के चाल वाले कमरे से सफर शुरू करने वाले अनिल सिंह आज कांदिवली के 5000 वर्गफुट के दीर्घाकार फ्लैट तक पहुँचते है तो इसके पीछे उनकी कड़ी मेहनत, सपने देखने की प्रवृत्ति और संकल्प की ही निर्णायक भूमिका रही है।       मुझे नहीं लगता है कि हमारे बच्चों को यह पता भी होगा कि उनके पिता को बस के किराए का पैसा दोस्तों द्वारा चाय पर खर्च करवा दिए जाने के कारण कई बार कालीना से कुर्ला/सांताक्रुज स्टेशन तक पैदल जाना पड़ा था। अपनी- अपनी जेबें झाड़कर हम 6-8 रूपये जुटाते और यूनिवर्सिटी के कालीना परिसर के गेट के सामने भेलपुरी का खोमचा लगाने वाले लालजी से कहते, ‘भईया, इतने पैसे में जितनी भेल बन सकती हो बना दो और हम सबको पुड़िया बनाकर दे दो।‘ वह मुस्कुराकर हमें देखता किन्तु कभी निराश नहीं करता था। शायद वह हमारी औकात या लाचारी बखूबी भाँप लेता था।  इस प्रसंग पर अनिल टिप्पणी करते हैं कि हममें से हरेक साथी के पास अपने-अपने बचपन, किशोरावस्था और युवावस्था के शुरुआती दौर की अनेकों कहानियाँ, तजुर्बे और यादें है जिन्हें हम कभी-कभी अकेले में याद करते हैं, गुनते हैं और उनमें खो जाते हैं। किंतु आज के हमारे बच्चों के पास ऐसी कोई कहानी शायद ही हो। वस्तुतः इनके पास कोई कहानी नहीं होगी। कहानियाँ तो सिरफिरों के पास होती हैं, भटकने वालों के पास होती हैं, अभावों में भी मस्त रहने वाले फक्कड़ों के पास होती हैं, दोस्तों के बीच बैठकर हँसी-ठट्ठा करने वालों के पास होती हैं।       इस सदी के आठवें-नवें दशक में हमारी खोलियों /कमरों में जगह भले ही कम हुआ करती थी किंतु फिर भी 6-8 लोगों का परिवार राजी-खुशी से मजे में रह लेता था क्योंकि तब हम सबके दिल बड़े होते थे और हम सामूहिकता और भाईचारे की परंपरा का मन से निर्वाह करते थे। किंतु आज शायद ऐसी स्थिति नहीं है। फ्लैटों के दाम करोड़ों में पहुँच गए हैं और उनके क्षेत्रफल भी कई गुना बढ़ गए है किंतु लगता यहीं है कि हमारे दायरे और सोच में लगातार संकुचन आता जा रहा है और हम मानो अलग-अलग टापू में रहने लगे हैं औरों से बेखबर....., अपने और अपने निजी परिवार में मस्त। ऐसे में कहानियों और किस्सों के लिए अनुकूल मिट्टी और खाद-पानी मिले भी तो कैसे? इसलिए हमें इन किस्से-कहानियों के लिए अपने जीवन में खिड़कियों और झरोखों की गुंजाईश अवश्य बनाए रखनी चाहिए क्योंकि कहानियों के बिना जीवन, जीवन नहीं रह जाता बल्कि रसहीन, रंगहीन और लयहीन हो जाता है। गुलाबचन्द यादव (ईमेल: gcyadav.mumbai@gmail.com)*****

Ganesha- Our all Time favorite
 Pinal Chauhan  
 6 April 2018  

Ganesha – the all time favoriteLord Ganesha, one of the most famous and favorite among all especially the kids. Do we really know about him? He's just famous as the elephant headedGod with a big belly who is usually found playing around everywhere with hisbest friend the Mouse and eating his favorite food Modak. There are someincidents through which Ganesha proved himself one among the others.Goddess Parvati, wife of Lord Shiva was supposed to go for bath and she wasalone as Shiva was busy meditating on the mountains. She wanted someone toguard her door when she goes and it was only Nandi (Shiva's bull) who could doit. She told Nandi to guard the door and let no one enter till she asks him. Nandidid accept her orders, but he being loyal to Shiva let's him enter inside with whichParvati gets very angry thinking of no one being loyal to her, takes off herturmeric paste applied on her body and makes an idol of a boy and then puts lifeto him and names him Ganesha and declares him to be her own son who wouldbe loyal to her always. Every time she wished to bathe she instructed Ganeshato guard her door and not let anyone enter.One day when he was guarding the door, Shiva happened to come and justrushed inside, but at his surprise, he found a strange boy guarding the door andstopping him to enter in. On asking him who he was and why was he stoppinghim to enter his own house, Ganesha introduces him to be Parvati's son andinforms him, thus, as per her orders he would not allow him to enter. Shiva,furiously warns him to let him go or else he would have to battle with him.Ganesha denies to let him enter and so Shiva asks his army to attack him, butGanesha very bravely rebelled them. Shiva had realized that he was not anordinary boy and thus decided to himself fight with Ganesha and with his divinefury his trishul poking his head cut on the ground and killed him instantly.When Parvati came out after her bath and saw Ganesha lying down, ran towardshim and had found herself extremely hurt and insulted that, she wanted todestroy the whole creation. But, Brahma, being the creator appeared suddenly atthe spot to know what had happened and pleaded her to take back her words.She furiously denied to change her decisions and narrated them the whole case.Shiva apologized for his mistake and tried to keep her cool and decided to getthe head of any first living being they find and would place it on Ganesha's head.So, he ordered Brahma to move towards the north direction and get any head hefinds.In a short time Brahma returns back with a strong big head of an elephantand hands it over to Shiva. Looking at that Parvati was very annoyed thinking- “aboy with an elephant head” and so denied to accept it. But, Shiva explained herthat though he would be an elephant headed, he would not be an ordinary boy,but would be worshiped before all the other Gods. He places the head on thebody and gives him life and declares him to be his own elder son and named himGanapati (leader of the beings)As time passed, Ganesha started growing and with many such incidentsthere was one of the most famous incidents when Ganesha and his youngerbrother Karthik were discriminated and and were tested who was wiser amongthe both. The Devas had insisted to test their qualities and intelligence and so allof them decided to go to Brahma being the creator of the universe would cleartheir doubt. On asking him, he too was speechless that who wiser among theboth. So he decided to send his mischievous son Narada to clear the doubt.Narada, who was always prompt with his pranks had a wonderful plan to testthem so he reached to the divine couple Shiva and Parvati with a magical fruitand insisted them to give it to the one whom they liked the most. They were bothconfused to whom to give it. At the same time Ganesha and Karthik reachedthere and insisted to have the fruit. Shiva and Parvati then decided to organize atest between them. They in the center and all the other gods and goddessessurrounded by them. Ganesha and Karthik in the middle were all prepared for thetest. Karthik was confident enough to win it, as he was a fit and fine. Well,Ganesha was stout and with a big belly who could hardly move from his placefast. Ganesha was very cool and was least concerned about what was going tohappen. They then announced that either of them who goes around the wholeworld thrice and reaches back to them first would get the magical fruit. Karthik,very spontaneously moved on with his peacock and Ganesha puzzled, thinkinghow he would manage as he was too stout and his mouse too small to cope upKarthik, so very wisely Ganesha joined his hands and started moving around hisparents Shiva and Parvati three times. Surprisingly, when he was asked for thereason, he replied, “You have created me, and thus, for me you are the world.So, i don't find it worth wasting my time moving anywhere else” and hecompleted his task very efficiently. Not only Shiva and Parvati but, all presentthere, were very impressed by his wise act and gave him the fruit and cheeredfor him.Thus, Ganesha has been given the dominion over all the Ganas, whichmeans all the classes- be it Gods, humans, insects, animals or celestial beings. Itis said that we have to respect and honor all these Ganas and if do not do so, allour actions are known as the form of thievery as they are not sanctioned. So,instead of preaching each Gana differently, in order to receive the blessings, itwas decided to bow the Lord of all, Shri Ganesha (which means God of allGanas) By receiving his grace, we receive it from all and he removes all thepotential obstacles and helps us to succeed.

Individualism vs. Collectivism
 Anuradha Singh  
 16 May 2018  

A few days back I read once again Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead, when I had read it earlier as a school going child I had not understood it at all. I had found it silly and boring; the old copy was still lying in the corner of my father’s bookshelf. My hand stretched involuntarily to pick up the yellow-paged old book a few days back. I started reading it late in the evening and kept at it into the night to finish in a readathon (like marathon) manner. This time I saw the book anew. It was fresh and ringed of issues and thoughts which are relevant even today, as they were at that time, in 1957, and I think they will be still relevant for years to come.The Russian immigrant writer was strong-willed, intelligent and years ahead of her time. The philosophical novel which she wrote then invited much criticism but soon it gained lots of popularity and sold millions of copies.  I feel the story of the protagonist though larger than life, why I am saying larger than life as the feelings, conditions, the circumstances which he goes through are little hard to find in today’s world. Many people go through times when they have to succumb to societal pressures, make deal with their ideas, priorities and sooner or later they do it for the sake of their family, friends, careers and what not. But Fountain head’s hero is not ready for a compromise. Not as a student, never as a professional. He is at war with the complete society. He does not give up even after being jobless, alone and broke. It is an amazing read, and I will not venture further. Those who have read it will understand the points which I have mentioned. Those who have not read it, I suggest should read it.Here I want to draw out the philosophy of Fountainhead. Ayn Rand supports individualism on the face of collectivism. It is hard to digest for an Indian, as all other societies but predominantly Indian’s have always been supporting collectivism. We have been always taught to sacrifice, bend, compromise for the sake of family, society, organization and many more. As psychology says a man is a social animal and likes to live in groups. Since the period when a man was a caveman he learned a lesson that if he has to survive then he should live in groups, otherwise he does not have a chance in front of the wild animals. The lessons taken in the jungle worked wonderfully till man dwelled in a cave. It gave him security, protection, recognition, power and many more. But once the wheel was made, the fire was ignited, mines were dug, and houses were constructed things changed.The civilized world came into being, with it came rules and regulations.  Discipline was ingrained and customs and traditions became prevalent and then staunch for the smooth running of the society. But, then it was possible for a man to live independently, think independently and work also. When I say independently it does not mean, to live like Robinson Crusoe alone on an island with no contact with the world. That is something totally different; it is a disorder if you choose to do it while living in this usual friendly world. When I say think independently means to take certain decisions, which could be distinct, advanced and revolutionary. It may not fit in with the run of the mill, prevalent set of thinking or working culture of a particular society. But if an individual finds it correct, if he or she has complete faith in his work, concept, project or whatever decision he or she has taken then that individual should go ahead with it with complete confidence. In short ‘dare.’In our own country, India and a huge list of foreign countries we have examples wherein we can see that since time immemorial society has ridiculed, tortured, outcasted individuals with advanced ideas which were completely strange, foreign to that generation. There is a long list, right from Galileo, the Wright Brothers, Edison, Marie Currie, Edward Jenner and many more had to go through great pains and efforts to make people realize the importance of their work. In India as well there have been many great men and women who have been educators, reformists, social workers, businessmen whose work was at first trashed but later on understood and hence accepted by people. Why is it so that people are not ready to accept anything new? I think one of the problems which I can perceive lies in the psyche. We humans or even animals get conditioned to a certain routine, habits, weather and almost everything. If we are doing a certain chore every day, or we have been listening about a certain notion over the years, coming down from parents, grandparents and so on; then our mind and even our body accept it without any resistance. In other words, we can say this is the training of a kind. Our body and mind get prepared to see and then accept certain things in a certain way. As in Fountainhead, the Americans of that time were used to see and hence build completely orthodox, conformist kind of buildings which is why they were not liking and hence opposing the innovative ideas of Howard Roark. Some are so influenced by a certain style of living, that they get upset and so angry and jealous to see innovation. Sometimes, these sensitive minds can see or judge that the idea in front of them is fantastic but they are not willing to change, they do not want to come out of their comfort zone. Here again, I will give an example of the manipulative journalist Ellsworth Toohey of Fountainhead. Just because he didn’t appreciate or understand Roark’s independent thinking, his revolutionary ideas, Toohey tried his level best to finish Roark. In the real world also, where we dwell, there are certain elements like Toohey who do not welcome fresh ideas. But I firmly believe that if we look at today’s world analytically, the progress which it has made in leaps and bounds is because of a germ of an idea, vision, a dream seen by an individual. It is very rare that a dream is carried forward by a society as a whole.  It is always initially an individual dream, may be taken up by the society much later. If the individual manages to convince the society of his dream then it propels into a nationwide, statewide revolutionary idea, but never in the beginning.With assurance, I say that individualism, (as in liberty to try new things, set on a new path, try new ways at looking at this good old world) is much greater and better way of living. It should be allowed, helped, propagated and seen as navigators of the progressive world. Collectivism may have helped us in certain situations; where great upheaval is required to turn the old world structure into a new one. But here, I must point out; even this great revolution is always started by one man, one situation. To be always be trapped in the shackles of society’s beliefs, their likings, their fears, their conceptions or misconceptions, how far one can carry this heavy load. There will always come a time when one would like to dump the load and think and move freely.  After all, we are genetically distinct from the sheep which follows each other with precision. We are at the peak of the ecosystem because of the structure of our brain. This boiling pot requires fresh ideas for sustenance, as only change is constant and always needed. A caterpillar which is green colored transforms into iridescent blue and does not stay green.By Anuradha Singh.

एक राजा को जब पता चला कि मेरे राज्य मे एक ऐसा व्यक्ति है जिसका सुबह-सुबह मुख देखने से दिन भर भोजन नही मिलता है।सच्चाई जानने के इच्छा से उस ब्यक्ति को राजा ने अपने साथ सुलाया।दुसरे दिन राजा की ब्यस्तता ऐसी बढ़ी कि राजा शाम तक भोजन नही कर सका ।इस बात से क्रुद्ध होकर राजा ने उसे तत्काल फाॅसी की सज़ा का ऐलान कर दिया।आखिरी इच्छा के अंतर्गत उस ब्यक्ति ने कहा - " राजन - मेरा मुँह देखने से आप को शाम तक भोजन नही मिला , किंतु आप का मुँह देखने से मुझे मौत मिलने वाली है।"इतना सुनते ही लज्जित राजा को संत वाणी याद आ गई....*बुरो जो देखण मै चल्यो , बुरो न मिल्यो कोय।**जो दिल ढूढ्यो आपणो , मुझ सो बुरो न कोय ।।*कमियां अपने में ढूंढो, दूसरों में नहीं...

साहित्य की सामाजिक भूमिका

संगम नारी मंच के समक्षसाहित्य की भूमिका जानने से पूर्व जानते हैंकि साहित्य  क्या है?क्यों हैं? साहित्य नाम क्यों दिया गया?वस्तुतः किसी भी भाषा के वाचिक और लिखित रुप से प्राप्त सँस्कृति,संस्कार,कला को साहित्य की श्रेणी में रखा जा सकता है।वाचिक यानि बोलकर एक पीढ़ी से दूसरी पीढ़ी तकग्रहण किया गया।लोक गीत ,लोक कलायें ,परंपरायें इसी तरह हस्ताँतरित होती रही हैं।इस हिसाब से देखा जाये तो आदिवासी भाषाओं,कला आदि का साहित्य सबसे प्राचीन है जिसे फरिभाषित करना थोड़ा कठिन है।जिस प्रकार पानी को परिभाषित करना या हवा को परिभाषित करना ,भावना को परिभाषित करना..।आशय हुआ कि शब्दों में हम  जिसे ढालना चाहे जिस रुप में ढालना चाहे जिस आकार में ढालना चाहे ढाल लेते हैं।पर शब्द के साथ जब उसका अर्थ ,उसका भाव भी सामंजस्य रुप में जुड़ा हो तब वह साहित्य की संज्ञा को प्राप्त हो सकता है।ज्ञातव्य है कि संस्कृत के आचार्य  विश्वनाथ महापात्र  सर्वप्रथम साहित्य दर्पण लिख कर साहित्य शब्द को व्यवहार में लाये थे ।वहीं संस्कृत के ही एक अन्य आचार्य कुंतक जी कहते हैं कि -शब्द और अर्थ के लिये सुंदरता की होड़ लगी हो ,स्पर्धा हो वहाँ साहित्य की सृष्टि होती है।क्लिष्ट शब्द ,तुकबंदी,रचना जो भाव हीन हो लेकिन छंद या मीटर के अनुभावों पर शतप्रतिशत सही बैठती हो ठीक वैसी ही है जैसे अपराह्न में जुगनू।इसका आशय ये हुआ कि भाव ही किसी सृजन को वह गहरायी प्रदान करते हैं जो रचना को साहित्य की परिधि में लाते हैं।निदा फ़ाजली ,गाल़िब ,दाग आदि अनेक कवियों ने बहुत ही सहज ,सरल शब्दों में गहरे भावों की रचना की जिसे रोम रोम महसूस कर सका यही साहित्य है।दुष्यंत कुमार ,जयशंकर प्रसाद रामधारी सिंह दिनकर आदि की रचनायें गहरे भावों को संजोती रचनायें हैं।अर्थात् साहित्य -शब्द ,अर्थ और भावों की त्रिवेणी हैं जो जनहित की धारा के साथ उच्चादर्शों की दिशा में सामाजिक सरोकारों को साथ ले प्रवाहित है।यही है उद्देश्य भी अर्थात् वाचिक,मौलिक ,लिखित रुप से सामाजिक सरोकारों के साथ एक पीढ़ी से दूसरी पीढ़ी तक हस्ताँतरित ,हितकारी,संस्कार ,संस्कृति ही साहित्य है।तो अपने भाव सौंदर्य के साथ शब्द अर्थ की विस्तृत व्याख्या करता है।उद्देश्य या भूमिका---एक वाक्य में कहा जाये तो प्राचीन परंपरा को सहेजना,समझना साहित्य का उद्देश्य हो सकता है।लेकिन मूलरुप से कुरीतियाँ मिटाकर सामाजिक बुराइयों से अलग स्वस्थ ,सुंदर, सामाजिकता की परंपरा ही साहित्य का उद्देश्य है।सा-सहित,हित्-हितकारी,य-यत्न पूर्वक।यानि समाज के लिये हितकारी यत्नपूर्वक हित सहित जो मानव ,समाज के लिये जीवन को सहज ,सरल बनाये वही कला साहित्य का उद्देएश्य है।साहित्य में मानव जीवन के सद्विचार ,भाव निहित होते हैं।ऐसे भाव जिनका उद्देश्य जीवन,समाज में व्याप्त कुरुपताओ,रुढ़ियों,दुष्प्रभावों विसंगतियों को को मिटाना है।केवल रस या आनंद प्राप्ति अथवा मनोरंजन मात्र ही साहित्य का उद्देश्य नहीं है।स्वस्थ मन ,दिमाग वाला व्यक्ति हर जगह सौंदर्य और रस खोज लेता है।साहित्य का उद्देश्य है कि वह  समाज की रूढ़ियों,विसंगतियों को नीति उपदेश के साथ  मित्र ,प्रिय के समान मिष्ट बातों द्वारा कलात्मक,सहज,सरल भावपूर्ण शब्दों में बताये और परिवर्तन के लिये प्रेरित करे।इसी लिये साहित्य को समाज का दर्पण कहा जाता है।जहाँ समाज में उपजी कलुषता ,विसंगतियों,,अपराधों को इंगित कर उनका निराकरण किया जाता है।एक दिशाबोध दिया जाता है।यही साहित्य का उद्देश्य है। फिर चाहे वह आलोचना हो, व्याख्या हो कथा हो काव्य हो हर धारा दर्पणवत् समाज का चेहरा सामने लाता है।साहित्य मनोरंजन के साथ कल्याण और निर्माण की भावना को भी साथ लेकर चलता है।फ्रांस की क्रांति,रुस की क्रांति,भारत की क्रांति ..सभी के मूल में साहित्य  का प्रभाव था। जब भी जहाँ भी कुछ क्रांतिकारी परिवर्तन हुये ,साहित्य ही सहयोगी रहा।जीवन की सड़ी गली परंपराओं,रुढ़ियों,हीनताओं से जीवन को निकालना ही साहित्य का उद्देश्य हमेशा से रहा है।अर्थात्  मनोरंजक तरीके से मानव समाज के हितार्थ ,शुभकारी,लौकिक पारलौकिक मुक्ति ,साहित्य का चरम  उद्देश्य कहा जा सकता है।जो जीवन को प्रभावित करने वाले व्यवहारिक सत्य हैं उन्हें रोचक ढंग से अभिव्यक्त करना और मानव या व्यक्ति अथवा पाठक को उस से परिचित करा के परिवर्तन करना ही साहित्य का उद्देश्य है ।

Content : 1আত্মকথনতার নামের সঙ্গে একটি শব্দেরই তুলনা চলে,তা হল অনন্ত। তার না থাকাটা অনন্ত হয়ে রইল কোনও স্পর্শ স্বরের মতো। আর থাকাটাও। পূর্ণিমা গুনে গুনে আমি হিসেব কষে দেখি আমার ভালোবাসার বয়েস কত হল। তাতে খানিক চাঁদের কলঙ্ক মেশাই ,পোয়া ছটাক আলো আর আলটপকা কিছু কথা এসে পড়ে। যে সব কথার বেশির ভাগটাই খামখেয়ালি l দুখজাগানিয়া কথারা চলচ্ছক্তিহীন হয়ে কিছু মুহূর্তকে জিইয়ে রাখে কেবল।  আর আমি বুঝি আমার মনের ঝুলবারান্দায় ব্যথাগুলো, আমারই আশকারায়, আশনাইতে কেমন বেয়াড়া হয়ে উঠছে।একটা অনির্বাণ অনন্তকে আমি সলতে পাকিয়ে জ্বালিয়ে রাখি আর তার রেশটুকু মিশতে থাকে পুরিয়া ধানেশ্রীর বিষন্নতায়।

मैंने नई नौकरी पकड़ी। सोचा रवि की थोड़ी मदद कर दूँ। रवि मेरा पति, उसने भी मेरी बात समझी और हामी भर दी। पहला दिन नौकरी का। रवि ने बोला थोड़ा ठीक से तैयार होकर जाना तुम आफिस, मंगलसूत्र भी निकाल जाना। मुझे थोड़ा आश्चर्य हुआ। मैंने मंगलसूत्र उतारा नहीं पर ऐसे पहना कि दिखाई नहीं दे। सिन्दूर भी थोड़ा लगाया। मुझे नौकरी मिली थी पर्सनल असिस्टेंट की। मुझे एक हफ्ता हुआ नौकरी करते हुए। एक दिन बाॅस मुझे अपने साथ किसी पार्टी में ले गए। पार्टी थी बड़े लोगों की। मन नहीं था फिर भी मना नहीं कर पाई, नई नौकरी जो थी। बाॅस के साथ उस दिन कई सवाल का सामना करना पड़ा। कई प्रस्ताव भी थे। मेरा जवाब देना जरूरी हो गया था। मेरा मंगलसूत्र सामने आ गया था और पार्टी छोड़ मैं घर के लिए निकल गई। दुसरे दिन मैंने मंगलसूत्र को छूपाया नहीं। मेरी और पहचान के साथ, एक और पहचान मेरी.... मेरा मंगलसूत्र।

કોઇ એક માણસ એક ગામથી બીજા ગામ જવા નિકળ્યો હતો. તેને ખુબ જ ભુખ લાગી હતી, તેથી તે આમતેમ ભોજનની તલાશ કરતા-કરતા તે એક ઘનઘોર જંગલમાં જઇ પહોચ્યો.જંગલમાં ખુબ મોટા-મોટા વૃક્ષો છે. તે જંગલની સુંદરતા જોઇ જ રહ્યો. અને મનોમન બબડવા લાગ્યો.શુ સુંદર મોટા મોટા વૃક્ષો છે. ઝાડ પર પેલા વાંદરા કેવા રમી રહ્યા છે. અરે! પેલી ખીસકોલી પણ કેવી એકબીજાને પકડીને ભાગે છે. જાણે કે પકડદાવ રમતી હોય તેમ લાગે છે. મને પણ અહિયા જ ઘર બનાવી રહેવાનુ મન થાય છે.આવ સાંભળતા જ એક વાંદરાભાઇને વાચા આવી. અને તેને માણસને કહેવા લાગ્યો:" ના ભાઇ ના,  તુ અહિયા ઘર બનાવવાનો વિચાર ન કરીશ. તમારી જાતિ જ્યા વશે છે. ત્યા વૃક્ષો રેહતા નથી અને જ્યા વૃક્ષો નથી, ત્યા પંશુ- પંખી નથી રહેતા.  “એટલે કે વૃક્ષો નથી તો કશુ જ નથી “  ' તે તમે પણ સારી રીતે જાણો છો. ભગવાને તમને આ જગતમાં વિશેષ બુદ્ધિ આપી છે. છતા તમે વૃક્ષોને ઉછેરવાનુ તો દુર પરંતુ તમે તો વૃક્ષોને કાપે જ પાર રાખો છો' .માણસ આ બધુ સાંભળી સ્તબ્ધ થય ગયો. એ કઇ બોલે તે પહેલા જંગલના બધા પ્રાણીઓ આવી પહોચ્યા અને માણસને ચોતરફથી ઘેરી વળ્યા.સૌપ્રથમ પોપટભાઇ બોલ્યા : “ કેવો સુંદર માણસ છે. અને કેવુ મીંઠુ- મીંઠુ બોલે છે" . આમ કહી, તેને જંગલના રાજા સિંહને આ માણસને પાંજરામાં પુરવા સલાહ આપી.....માણસ બિચારો બધા પ્રાણીઓને બોલતા જોઇ ગભરાઇ ગયો. તે માણસના કર્મોના કારણે આજે ચોક્કસ પ્રાણીઓના હાથે  મરશે . એવુ  મનોમન વિચારવા લાગ્યો.માણસ બોલ્યો :-"  ન મહારાજા ના આ પોપટને અમે અને અમારા જેવા બીજા માણસો સારા પીંજરામાં રાખીયે છીએ. પ્રેમથી સારુ- સારુ ખાવાનું  આપીએ છીએ. તો પણ આજે આ પોપટ અમારા વિશે ખોટુ બોલે છે."સિંહ બોલ્યો:- " ખોટુ,  ખોટુ તો તમે અમારુ ઇચ્છો છો. શુ તમને પીંજરામાં બંધ કરી સારુ-સારુ ખાવાનુ આપીશુ, તો તમને ગમશે.? "માણસ બોલ્યો :- " ન મહરાજ એમ કેમ ચાલે, મારો તો પરીવાર છે. મા- બાપ, પત્નિ અને મારા પુત્રો પણ છે. અને બીજા પણ......"સિંહ બોલ્યો:- ( ગુસ્સે થય ને મોટેથી ગર્જના કરી ) ' ચુપ મુર્ખ માણસ, એટલે કે તમારો પરીવાર છે. તો અમે બધા શું પરીવાર વગરના છીએ ?  શુ અમારા મા- બાપ, પત્નિ અને અમારા પુત્રો નથી? ફરક માત્ર એટલો છે કે અમે બોલી નથી  શકતા . એટલે તમારે શું  પંશુ-પંખીઓ પર જુલમ કરતા જ રહેવાનુ? ભગવાને તમને વિશેષ બુદ્ધિ આપી છે.છતા તમે તેણો ખોટો ઉપયોગ કરો છો.અને અમે જંગલી પ્રાણીઓ હોવા છતા જે જંગલમાં રહિએ છીએ તેની રક્ષા કરીએ છીએ' .ત્યાજ વચ્ચે વાંદરાભાઈ બોલ્યા:- મહારાજ આ માણસો ને ગમે તેટલુ ભાષણ આપશો તોપણ એવા ને એવા જ રહેવાના તેથી હુ તમને કહુ છુ,  કે મને આ માણસને સજા આપવાની અણુમતી આપો.સિંહ:- ' ભલે તુ આ માણસને સજા આપ, ' પછી વાંદરાભાઇ એક જાડો વેલો લાવી માણસના ગળામાં બાંધી અને સોટી ફટકારીને ગુલાટ ખાવા કહ્યું.માણસ :-  ' મને ગુલાટ મારતા નથી આવડતુ.
