शक्ति और क्षमा - कवि: रामधारी सिंह “दिनकर”

शक्ति और क्षमा
कवि: रामधारी सिंह “दिनकर”


क्षमा, दया, तप, त्याग, मनोबल
सबका लिया सहारा
पर नर व्याघ सुयोधन तुमसे
कहो कहाँ कब हारा?


क्षमाशील हो ॠपु-सक्ष
तुम हुये विनीत जितना ही
दुष्ट कौरवों ने तुमको
कायर समझा उतना ही


अत्याचार सहन करने का
कुफल यही होता है
पौरुष का आतंक मनुज
कोमल होकर खोता है


क्षमा शोभती उस भुजंग को
जिसके पास गरल है
उसका क्या जो दंतहीन
विषरहित विनीत सरल है


तीन दिवस तक पंथ मांगते
रघुपति सिंधु किनारे
बैठे पढते रहे छन्द
अनुनय के प्यारे प्यारे


उत्तर में जब एक नाद भी
उठा नही सागर से
उठी अधीर धधक पौरुष की
आग राम के शर से


सिंधु देह धर त्राहि-त्राहि
करता आ गिरा शरण में
चरण पूज दासता गृहण की
बंधा मूढ़ बन्धन में


सच पूछो तो शर में ही
बसती है दीप्ति विनय की
संधिवचन सम्पूज्य उसीका
जिसमे शक्ति विजय की


सहनशीलता, क्षमा, दया को
तभी पूजता जग है
बल का दर्प चमकता उसके
पीछे जब जगमग है

ऐसी लागी लगन, मीरा हो गयी मगन

अनूप जलोटा द्वारा गाया हुआ यह भजन बहुत लोकप्रिय हुआ था - हमारे बचपन के समय 
ऐसी  लागी लगन, मीरा हो गयी मगन 
ऐसी  लागी  लगन , मीरा  हो  गयी  मगन
वोह  तो  गली  गली  गुण  गाने  लगी
महलों  में  पली  बन  के  जोगन  चली

मीरा  रानी  दीवानी  कहने  लगी 
कोई  रोके  नहीं, कोई  टोके  नहीं
मीरा  गोविन्द  गोपाल  गाने  लगी
बैठी  संतों  के  संग , रंगी  मोहन  के  रंग
मीरा  प्रेमी  प्रीतम  को  मनाने  चली
वोह  तो  गली  गली  गुण  गाने  लगी,
 
राणा ने  विष  दिया, मानो  अमृत  पिया
मीरा सागर  में , सरिता  सामने  लगी
दुःख  लाखों  सहे , मुख  से  गोविन्द  कहे
मीरा  गोविन्द  गोपाल  गाने  लगी 

वोह  तो  गली  गली  गुण  गाने  लगी 
ऐसी  लगी  लगन , मीरा  हो  गयी  मगन
वोह  तो  गली  गली  गुण  गाने  लगी

इस बार नहीं (Not this time)

"इस बार नहीं" - प्रसून जोशी ने मुंबई पर २६/११ को हुए इस्लामिक जेहादी हमले के बाद लिखी थी.


इस बार नहीं
प्रसून जोशी

इस  बार  नहीं
इस  बार जब  वह छोटी  सी  बच्ची,
मेरे पास अपनी  खरोंच ले  कर  आएगी
मैं  उसे  फू  फू  कर  नहीं  बहलाऊँगा
पनपने  दूंगा  उसकी  टीस  को

इस  बार  नहीं
इस  बार  जब  मैं  चेहरों  पर  दर्द  लिखा  देखूँगा
नहीं  गूंगा  गीत  पीड़ा  भुला  देने  वाले
दर्द  को  रिसने  दूंगा , उतारने  दूंगा  अन्दर  गहरे

इस  बार  नहीं
इस  बार  मैं  न  मरहम  लगाऊँगा
न  ही  उठाऊँगा  रुई  के  फाहे
और  न  ही  कहूँगा  कि  तुम  आँखें बंद  कर लो ,
गर्दन  उधर  कर  लो  मैं  दवा  लगता  हूँ
देखने  दूंगा  सबको  हम  सबको  खुले  नंगे  घाव

इस  बार  नहीं
इस  बार जब  उलझने  देखूँगा, छट पटाहट देखूँगा
नहीं  दौडूंगा  उलझी  डोर लपेटने
उलझने  दूंगा  जब  तक  उलझ  सके

इस  बार  नहीं
इस  बार  कर्म  का  हवाला  दे  कर  नहीं  उठाऊँगा  औज़ार
नहीं  करूंगा  फिर  से  एक  नयी  शुरुआत
नहीं  बनूँगा  मिसाल  एक  कर्मयोगी  की 
नहीं  आने  दूंगा  ज़िन्दगी  को  आसानी  से  पटरी  पर
उतारने  दूंगा  उसे  कीचड  में , टेढे  मेढे  रास्तों  पे

नहीं  सूखने  दूंगा  दीवारों  पर  लगा  खून
हल्का नहीं  पडने  दूंगा  उसका  रंग
इस  बार  नहीं  बनने  दूंगा  उसे  इतना  लाचार
कि  पान की पीक  और  खून  का  फर्क  ही  ख़त्म  हो  जाये

इस  बार  नहीं
इस  बार  घावों  को  देखना  है
गौर  से थोडा  लम्बे  वक्त  तक
कुछ  फैसले और  उसके  बाद  हौसले
कहीं  तो शुरुआत  करनी  ही  होगी
इस  बार  यही  तय  किया  है

प्रसून  जोशी

अमिताभ बच्चन की आवाज़ में पढ़ी गयी इस कविता को सुनें.

Boycott My Name is Khan

We know that Pakistan was formed as a separate nation for Muslims because many Muslims did not want to stay with Hindus.

And after formation, Pakistan has become an Islamic nation and has done whatever it could to spread the idea of Islamic nation, including tortures, kidnapping, rape and forced marriage of Hindu girls.

During the Kargil war, the Pakistani army practiced Islamic values by torturing Capt. Saurabh Kalia in the most barbaric manner possible.
I quote a small portion of the report:

The Pakistani Army Officers and Soldiers, indulged in the most dastardly acts of burning his body with cigarettes, removing his eyes before puncturing them, breaking most of the bones of his battered body and teeth.
10 years later, another set of Jehadis, during the 26/11 attack on Mumbai, Sexually Assaulted the hostages. Before torturing and killing the hostages, the Jehadi Islamic terrorists, practicing love and compassion as they would have learnt in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, mutilated the genitals of hostages.


After 26/11, there was lot of public anger. People wanted us to hit back at Pakistan.

So, with the background that I have mentioned above, if someone came and said that 
"It (Pakistan) is a great neighbour to have. We are great neighbours, They are good neighbours. Let us love each other."

"Let me be honest. My family is from Pakistan, my father was born there and his family is from there,".
You would imagine the person who made the comment either does not live in India or is crazy to say the same. Some might even say that this person is a traitor.

And yet, Shahrukh Khan says exactly the words that I have quoted. And the English media is supporting his treacherous uttering by running With SRK campaigns.

Please read this open letter to SRK. In this letter, the author has listed number of other references where SRK has displayed his Muslim brotherhood love, his Jehadi leanings and disdain for all things Hindu / Indian.



I will give another example how SRK is first and foremost a Jehadi.

Remember the first T20 World Cup finals? The Pakistani team lost the match to India in a nail biting finish, and the Pakistani captain, Shoaib Malik, at the podium said “My apologies to the entire Muslim community across the world”.

The man of the match of this match was Irfan Pathan and his mother wasn't happy to hear this nonsense from Malik.

Author Mukul Kesavan wrote on his popular cricinfo.com blog Men in White, "It is a world where Muslims, Hindus and a Sikh currently play for England, where Buddhists, Muslims, Christians and a Hindu play for Sri Lanka, where Hashim Amla turns out for South Africa, where a Patel plays for New Zealand, where Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Hindus play (and have always played) for India. Why would Shoaib think, then, that the Muslims of the world were collectively rooting for the Pakistan team or that they felt let down by its defeat?

Read the entire article here
http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/Irfans-mother-lashes-out-How-can-Shoaib-speak/221357/

And yet, Shahrukh Khan goes on to defend Shoib Malik.
"I don’t think he meant to segregate Muslims and Christians and Hindus and say this was a match between Islam and Hinduism. I don’t think that."
Presumably, Malik discussed his statements with SRK.

Read the entire interview here.
http://ibnlive.in.com/news/dont-compare-me-with-big-b-im-an-upstart-srk/50548-8-p1.html


There are number of other incidents like this.

Read this interview where he claims ""Being a Muslim and standing up for the tenets of Islam is my most important agenda,".
http://www.filmycinema.com/2009/06/shahrukhs-islam-comments-muslim-groups.html


So, does all the SRK's propaganda have a hidden agenda to Spread Islam ????

Why are we spending money to make this Jehadi rich ? Are we mad or something ?

They must be laughing at us. Look at the stupid "Kaafirs". They spend money on us so that we can further damage them.
  
Let us hit back.

I urge all of you to economically impact this Jehadi by boycotting his movie, "My Name is Khan".

Boycott. Let him feel the pain.


And let other embryonic traitors get the message.

How Hindustan Times steals - typical Congress culture behaviour

The culture of Congress is of stealing. Thievery, cheating, lying, looting are behaviors endemic to Congress culture. I am sure there would be exceptions, but they merely define the rule.

What the Gandhi family does on a larger scale to the country, its cronies like Hindustan Times do the common citizens.

Mridula Dwivedi is an IIT Kanpur graduate. She write a blog by name of Go Nomad. It is very pictorial kind of travel blog. She had published a picture on her blog as under:

 

The same was picked by Hindustan Times and used in Brunch, without giving any credit to Mridula.
Please click here to read the entire chain of dialogue between Hindustan Times and Mridula. Three weeks of chasing before they publish a small font "regret".

 And loud mouth, self obsessed Vir Sanghavi wrote, "Vir answers: It's really a legal issue between you and the Hindustan Times and it would not be proper for me to get involved."

But seriously, what do you expect from Hindustan Times and Times of India who have turned themselves as pimps by publishing prostitution advertisements (massage parlors etc.).

Listed below are other incidents of content been stolen from bloggers by Hindustan Times.

The truth behind Amnesty International

Amnesty International is an international Human Rights Group. It is well known for its demand for human rights for Islamic terrorists (never for the victims of Islamic terrorism like Kashmiri Hindus).

 In India, Amnesty International has been defending people like Binayak Sen, the Maoist terrorism ideologue.

The US govt. had jailed many of the Islamic terrorists it captured in Iraq / Afghanistan operations in Guantanamo Bay. Many were tortured during investigations.

Amnesty International highlighted the tortures. So far so good. However when they started presenting the Islamic terrorists as human rights campaigners, one of the staff of Amnesty, Gita Sahgal protested. She was fired.

Gita Sahgal has now published a statement following her suspension from Amnesty International. I have seen it at Stroppyblog, but please circulate it as widely as possible. Gita has been an active member of Women Against Fundamentalism for many years. Perhaps the publicity around this case will allow their voices to be heard.



Amnesty International and Cageprisoners
Statement by Gita Sahgal

7 February 2010


This morning the Sunday Times published an article about Amnesty International’s association with groups that support the Taliban and promote Islamic Right ideas. In that article, I was quoted as raising concerns about Amnesty’s very high profile associations with Guantanamo-detainee Moazzam Begg. I felt that Amnesty International was risking its reputation by associating itself with Begg, who heads an organization, Cageprisoners, that actively promotes Islamic Right ideas and individuals. 
Within a few hours of the article being published, Amnesty had suspended me from my job.

A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when a great organisation must ask: if it lies to itself, can it demand the truth of others? For in defending the torture standard, one of the strongest and most embedded in international human rights law, Amnesty International has sanitized the history and politics of the ex-Guantanamo detainee, Moazzam Begg and completely failed to recognize the nature of his organisation Cageprisoners.

The tragedy here is that the necessary defence of the torture standard has been inexcusably allied to the political legitimization of individuals and organisations belonging to the Islamic Right.

I have always opposed the illegal detention and torture of Muslim men at Guantanamo Bay and during the so-called War on Terror. I have been horrified and appalled by the treatment of people like Moazzam Begg and I have personally told him so. I have vocally opposed attempts by governments to justify ‘torture lite’.

The issue is not about Moazzam Begg’s freedom of opinion, nor about his right to propound his views: he already exercises these rights fully as he should. The issue is a fundamental one about the importance of the human rights movement maintaining an objective distance from groups and ideas that are committed to systematic discrimination and fundamentally undermine the universality of human rights. I have raised this issue because of my firm belief in human rights for all.

I sent two memos to my management asking a series of questions about what considerations were given to the nature of the relationship with Moazzam Begg and his organisation, Cageprisoners. I have received no answer to my questions. There has been a history of warnings within Amnesty that it is inadvisable to partner with Begg. Amnesty has created the impression that Begg is not only a victim of human rights violations but a defender of human rights. Many of my highly respected colleagues, each well-regarded in their area of expertise has said so. Each has been set aside.

As a result of my speaking to the Sunday Times, Amnesty International has announced that it has launched an internal inquiry. This is the moment to press for public answers, and to demonstrate that there is already a public demand including from Amnesty International members, to restore the integrity of the organisation and remind it of its fundamental principles.

I have been a human rights campaigner for over three decades, defending the rights of women and ethnic minorities, defending religious freedom and the rights of victims of torture, and campaigning against illegal detention and state repression. I have raised the issue of the association of Amnesty International with groups such as Begg’s consistently within the organisation. I have now been suspended for trying to do my job and staying faithful to Amnesty’s mission to protect and defend human rights universally and impartially.

President's family grabs land - already owns 200 acres

As has been well known in the past, the family of our president Mrs. Pratibha Devi Singh Patil, has been involved in number of murky dealings.

Now the courts have indicated the honorary President's husband of land grab using forged papers.



Read the article by clicking here.


On seeing this kind of behaviour, who will believe that the post of the President of India has had occupants like Dr. Rajendra Prasad and Dr. S Radhakrishnan. Shri VV Giri, R Venkataraman, and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam added luster to the post although there was period of people like Giani Zail Singh (who still had spine to stand up to Rajeev Gandhi) and worse of worse K R Narayanan (who was clear in not letting first BJP government form).


Wonder why Dr. Kalam was not given a second chance. Because Congress wanted its servile President and its pet dog Navin Chawla as the Election Commission head (to allow machine tempering).

युवराज की डिग्री - असली या नकली ??

युवराज की डिग्री - असली या नकली ??

इंदिरा जी के समय से ही पढाई एवं नेहरु गांधी परिवार का छत्तीस का आंकड़ा रहा है.

हमारे युवराज - हिंदुस्तान के भावी सम्राट - श्री श्री राहुल गांधी (उर्फ़ राऔल विन्ची ) ने चुनाव लड़ते समय दिए गाये शपथ पत्र में लिखा की उन्होंने Cambridge विश्वविद्यालय से Development Ecomonics में  M. Phil की है .


ज़रा इस पन्ने को पढ़ कर देखें कि युवराज की डिग्री Development Ecomonics से Development Studies में कैसे बदल गयी. कोई भी व्यक्ति यदि जीवन के २ वर्ष किसी डिग्री प्राप्त करने में लगाता है तो ऐसा तो नहीं संभव कि वह उस डिग्री का नाम ही भूल जाए. 

जब इस मुद्दे को इंडियन एक्सप्रेस ने उठाया तो समाचार पत्र को कानूनी नोटिस भेजा गया. पर वे अपनी कहानी पर डटे रहेयह लेख भी पठनीय है.

Times of India एवं Hindustan Times जैसे भांड, बिके हुए समाचार पत्रों से तो आशा ही नहीं करनी चाहिए कि वे राष्ट्र हित का मुद्दा उठाएंगे.

Muslim community fights back Jehadi Zakir Naik

Some voices of reason.

The chief Quazi of Lucknow, a very learned man, has issued a fatwa against Zakir Naik for supporting Osama Bin Laden.

Have a look at the video. And support the average Muslim who is NOT really interested in killing his Hindu, kaafir neighbors.

मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा - और फिर मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा

मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा - और फिर मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा

अच्छी चीज़ कि हत्या कैसे की जाती है, यह देखने के लिए, दूरदर्शन के समय का बनाया हुआ "मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा" - और उसके बाद ज़ूम इंडिया द्वारा बनाया गया  "फिर मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा".

पहले मूल विडियो




और अब इसकी हत्या



नए वाले विडियो में अमिताभ, अभिषेक और ऐश्वर्या को देख कर एक सज्जन बोले, "अरे जया भाभी नहीं आयीं"
एक और भाई साब दीपिका बहनजी को देख कर बोले, अरे बेटा "Liril" भी पकड़ लेते.

और अब यहाँ इस नए version का चमत्कार (अर्थात बलात्कार) पढ़ें "ग्रेट बोंग" द्वारा .
phir-hile-sur-mera-tumhara

Mile Sur Mera Tumhara is, without doubt, one the most iconic symbols of late 80s Indian popular culture. Some love it for the music. Some for the visuals. Some for the memories associated with it—of father coming back from work as it played on the TV or everyone rushing into the living room to catch a then-rare glimpse of Amitabh Bachchan.

And some, like me, for the sight of  P K Banerjee (who gave Bengalis such enduring phrases as “Dui Milan-r Milan” while presenting Italian League soccer on DD) wiping his bald spot as he and Arun Lal get down from a metro train, with the same cool swagger that would later inspire Quentin Tarantino in “Reservoir Dogs”.

So when I heard of an attempt to re-mix and make Mile Sur more relevant it for a new generation, my heart brimmethed over with joy at the brilliance of the idea. After all what could be more sure to succeed than to take a much-loved work of art and try to make it better. After all, look at how RGV improved on the original Sholay and made that movie whose name I forget but which rhymes with Haag.

I was even more excited when I heard that Zoom TV, the guys who know how to make use of their zoom lens like no other (witness this expose wherein scratches made by adamantine claws on Deepika Padukone’s back prove conclusively that Wolverine is the new man in her life), were the brains behind this project.  I was now sure that the focus of this new Mile Sur Tumhara (called Phir Mile Sur Tumhara like Phir Hera Pheri and Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayi and Phir Haathon Mein Sharaab Hai) would on the common people, like the man rowing the boat or the mahout as it was in the original, and less on Bollywood because after all Zoom Isko Dekho.

Once I saw the new Mile Sur Tumhara, I was blown away by the same euphoria that overpowers me everytime I come to the scene in the original when 16-wickets-on-debut-and-never-anything-after-that Narendra Hirwani, the dashing youth icon of the late 1980s, walks down the beach in a sweater.

This was the perfect re-adaptation of the old favorite, one that was guaranteed to strike a chord with the “Let’s have some raunak shaunak, let’s have some party now, let’s have some ralla rappa” generation with glamor exuding from every frame and the peppier, more happening “Yehi life ka gist. So let’s twist” demented variations on the overtly simple original.

Of course there was one major fail for me.

No it was not the outlandish length of the whole thing—-after all rubbing sande ka tel on anything does extend it outrageously as we all know from engineering college hostel. No what was really shocking for me, was despite the theme of the torch being passed on from one generation to the next (hence Prakash Padukone becoming Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan spawning Amitabh Bachchan), there was no room for Jeetendra’s son Tusshar Kapoor and more importantly for Mimoh. I mean come on now. No Mimoh. Remember Mithunda in the original? Remember the elephant also?

But then this flaw, major as it was, was still swamped out by the other glittering successes of the music video.

Success 1: Aishwarya Rai channeling the Sharmila Tagore expression from the original.

Success 2: Abhishek Bachchan popping out from the back with a “I come as a package deal with dad and wife” apologetic smile.

Success 3: Rituparna-mashi and Bumba-da (Prasenjit, the outrageously bearded Paaji [Bengali for naughty] Paaji [Hindi]) representing the best and brightest of today’s Bangali intelligentsia (in the 1988 version it was people like Sunil Gangopadhyay, Mrinal Sen, Suchitra Mitra and Nirendranath Chakrabarti)

Success 4: Deepika Padukone doing a Liril tribute (after all the director of the music video is the man behind the original Liril Ad)

Success 5: Shiamak Davar proving once again that he is the Johnny Lever of dance.

Success 6: Aamir Khan doing the old  Bam Bam Bole meets Aati Kya Khandala facial expressions and “I am a superstar and watch me blend me with commoners” act that he does so well.

Success 7: Pagal-e-Azam Sonu Nigam, looking as fresh as he stepped out from the sets of “Jaani Dushman”, doing his excessively exaggerated gayiki and ada-kaari.

Success 8: Shahid Kapoor continuing his Chance Pe Dance act

Success 9:  And finally and awesomely, Shahrukh Khan, in his hammy goodness, packing in seventeen seconds of undiluted over-acting  concluding with his “never-seen-before” arms-outstretched romantic pose just to remind you, in case you forgot, the filmy flimsiness of the whole act.

Yes I can truly see this becoming the new song of a new India.

Now I wait eagerly for “Phir Baje Sargam Har Taraf Se” with Pritam, Himesh and Rakhi Sawant.
