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 |
