रक्षाबंधन

रक्षाबंधन

बाल्कनी से देख रही थी
बारिश की बूँदों की झड़ी
बसंत गया, गर्मी गई
और सावन भी आ गया
संक्रमण से बेख़ौफ़
मौसम बदलते जा रहे
त्योहार निकलते जा रहे
होली गई , बैसाखी गई
और आ गया रक्षाबंधन
भीगे से मौसम में
भीगी सी पलकों में
तैर गई रेशम की डोरी
कहाँ गया वह पूजा का थाल
धूप दीप फ़ूल और प्यार
रोली मौली और मिठाई
देश विदेश में बैठे भाई
सपना बन कर रह गया
आरती उतार राखी बाँधना
भाई का हँसते हँसते नेग पकड़ाना
फ़ोन पर छोटी सी बात
और हो गया राखी का त्योहार
सिर्फ़ औपचारिकता ही है
या फिर पकड़ पाया भाई
बहन के दिल से निकली दुआ
क्या पकड़ पाई मैं
भाई के मन में छिपा प्यार
उन्नति की अंधी दौड़ में
खोते जा रहे त्योहार
खोती जा रही संस्कृति

…..अलका काँसरा

बहुत सुंदर चित्रण, विचारों का, कुछ ज़िन्दगी की दौड़-धुप में खो से गए रिश्तों का | संक्रमण तो एक बहाना सा भी बन के रह गया है और मजबूरी भी, मगर, यह तो फिर से सामान्य हो जाए पर वे दिन तो लौट के नहीं आयेंगे जब रिश्तों में कोई औपचारिकता नहीं थी, एक सरल से अनुभूति थी, अपनों का अपने होने का अहसास था, जो अब नहीं रहा और जो अब लौट के नहीं आएगा |

लेखिका: वेरा पनोवा अनुवाद: आ. चारुमति रामदास   आसमान में और धरती पर हो रही घटनाएँ   गर्मियों में तारे नहीं दिखाई देते. सिर्योझा चाहे कभी भी उठे, कभी भी सोए – आँगन में हमेशा उजाला ही रहता है. अगर बादल और बारिश भी हो, तब भी उजाला ही रहता है, क्योंकि बादलों के पीछे…

Bollywood- The Big Flotsam

By Navneet Bakshi | September 9, 2020 | 5 Comments

Rhea Charaborty’s arrest hasn’t come as a surprise, but it certainly is not the last one. Calling it a tip of the iceberg may sound somewhat clichéd, but how else should I say it? I don’t have the skill of Shashi Tharoor and Shashi Tharoor won’t say it. Why, should we single out someone and…
