रंगों का मेल

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
ज़िन्दगी के हर पहलू ...में है रंगों का खेल..
खट्टे--मीठे एहसासों का,अद्भुत सा मेल !
हर 'रंग' की है ...अपनी अनूठी कहानी !
..कभी खिलखिलाती ..कभी अश्रुओं का पानी !

झड़ते पत्ते ...बिखरते फूल, झुलसते अरमान..
,..सबने अपना 'रंग ' है पाया...
कुछ 'रंगों' ने खिलखिलाकर अपना 'गीत' सुनाया
...कुछ रंगों ने 'मातम' दर्शाया !

'रंग' ...और ; बेरंग' ....ये दो शब्द ना जाने कितना कुछ कह जाते हैं !
ज़िन्दगी के 'उतार--चढ़ावो' को .....बिन कहे छलका जाते हैं !
आसमाँ की चादर ने....न जाने कितने रंग हैं समेटे !
मदहोशी सी छा जाये....जब 'इन्द्र-धनुष' आ चमके !

ज़रा आँखें बंद कर.....'बारिश'...'बारिश'....हौले से कहिये....
हरियाली आपके ज़ेहन में ना उतर आये जनाब ..तो कहिये !
नीली --सफ़ेद शीतल बूँदें .....भिगा जाये तन--मन को....
नटखट 'मयूरा' नाच उठे....फैलाये जादुई पंखो को !

अब 'फूलों' ..और 'तितलियों' पर ...ज़रा गौर फरमाइए !
लाल, गुलाबी , नीले पीले ....रंगों में खो जाइये !
फूलों की बात आई...तो याद आ गई ना...मोहबत्तों वाली बातें !
कुछ नटखट ..कुछ 'शर्मीली' ...गुज़री हुई इतराती रातें !

रंगों की बात चली ...तो 'होली' कैसे दूर रहे !
हुल्लड़ करती टोलियां...पिचकारियों से रंग बहे !
राधा, कान्हा और मधुबन ...बन जाता हर 'चौबारा' !
रंगों साथ बरसता 'प्यार'....उमंग फैला जाता !

तो ..जी लीजिये , हुज़ूर...हर 'रंग' में डूब जाइये,
अपने -अपने 'रंगों' की ..नैया में खो जाइये !
ज़िन्दगी में हज़ारो 'पल' ..हर पल में हो 'ज़िन्दगी' ...
यही मेरी 'दुआ' है.....यही मेरी 'बंदगी' !

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
MUSINGS.

Today..I'm wondering...
Whether I should get more serious..
About 'Life' and ' Death'..
..and such grave matters.
Whether I should try to give more 'meaning' ..to my life ?
Ponder about struggles ..and pains and strife ?

The 'Chapters' ..are fluttering by..
Oh ! --too fast !
Don't I have to make each 'breath' count...
...before it turns out to be the ' last ' ?
Such thoughts are flitting by...
Like wisps of clouds..
I'm filled with strange trepidations..
..fears and doubts !

Is just being 'happy ' --enough payment ..for 'Life' ?
Being a good mother , a true friend, a loving wife ?
Or do I need to pull up my socks..
And do much for society ?

Should I always be wise and sagely ?
..and solve deep problems..
In a frenzy ?
O'tell me , Lord..
Your plans for me !
Doing no 'Negative' -- is it
enough for Thee ?
Or should I 'dream' less..
..do more'..for brethren ?
To leave this world.. a little more like 'heaven,' ??

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
A 'Life' we have -- none of us know how long...
Why then , can we not live it like a song ?
With just joy and peace and love all around ,
No animosity , no malice , nothing wrong !

Just keep giving the world , our very best,
Even when 'Life' gives us the toughest tests !
Where is the time for bitterness , I ask ?
When every precious breath --may be our last ?

Let every 'heart-beat' count, till beats remain,
Not a spare moment , for cynical disdain !
The flowers , the bees , the birds , the rain.,
Don't let the miraculous 'Nature' go in vain !

Do what you love --and love what you do,
No time at all , to sulk , cry or rue !
Live and give and cherish and woo,
Return to the Almighty, happy and true !

LIFE'S TREASURES.....IN SWEETEST, OLDEST BUNDLES !!

PM
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
My heart is dancing ...my eyes are twinkling ..and i'm feeling like the cat's whiskers !! This solemn , selfish 'Life' suddenly seems so simple and delightful !

Life is beautiful...Life is strange...
Life is 'music' ..with the sweetest refrain !

You know what has made my world so tra-la-la-laa and spontaneously enchanted ? Well !...it was a cutest bunch of 8 or 9 octogenarians I came across in my walking track !! With my music on my phone on , I kept taking my 'rounds' in the park.......and my fast steps kept faltering as I crossed these bunch of adorable oldies perched on a bench and on a tree log, chatting nineteen -to-the-dozen ! I let my spontaneous self take over the prudent one , and I gently asked -- " Sir , would you mind if I take a picture of you all?"

A short , intense pregnant silence ....and then the tallest of them grinned at me , looking at his pals , and said --"Why NOT ??" ...and I happily clicked two three pics of them.

What followed sort of startled me and mildly alarmed me , as I was bombarded with questions. "Aap ye photo apne akhbaar me chhap deejiye, par zara aur baatein bhi likhiye'...(You publish this picture in your paper , but write some meaningful stuff too !)..and another stormed at me a trifle belligerently --- 'Tell me , thrice we have put the garbage bins in this park , each time the youngsters chuck the filth all around them !"

Gosh ! These darling oldies were thinking I was a journalist ! I gently pacified them , telling them that I was a doctor , who loved writing blogs and poetry. They too were taken aback for confronting me . Our names were exchanged , and it turned out that two of them had taught mu husband Dr Salil Kumar in Convent school ! They fondly remembered my older brother-in-law who had studied with Jaya Bhaduri ! One Mr. Shukla was extremely keen on meeting my husband , "Woh itne busy doctor bann gaye , will he meet me ?" Of course I heartily invited them to come over sometime. Another one , around 90, knew my Father-in-law well , and spoke of him with affection and highest esteem, I felt so proud ....never having met my father-in-law who unfortunately had passed away before i got married.

I returned to my Clinic and to my patients ....and I think I was beaming happily at all my patients..;)

See ? The world is sooooo beautiful. and I will keep my solemn promise to these gentlemen , and write a blog sometime soon on 'basic cleanliness concept' ...sadly lacking in today's youth. 'Swachh--abhyaan' blah --blah--blah !!! Modiji ...kabhi inn buzurgon se miliyega !!

Feeling like a pampered 'Beti' ..of these cutest octogenarians !

दीपावली पर्व
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
इस वर्ष, दिवाली पर , कुछ उलझे -उलझे से हैं जज़्बात,
देखो -- फिर आ गई जगमगाती दिवाली की रात !
बात बस इतनी सी --कि क्यों ना कुछ नया किया जाये,
इस वर्ष हंसी और ख़ुशी के द्वीप ही जलाये जाएं !
मिठाइयां और व्यंजन ज़्यादा न भाते आजकल,
मंदिर में बैठे बच्चों को --चलो कुछ कपडे बाँट आएं !
पटाखों और फुलझड़ियों में कहाँ वो रौशनी है जनाब !
चलो --आज मुस्कुराहटों को थोक में झिलमिला आएं !
लक्ष्मीजी के भजन -पूजन करेंगे हम ज़रूर ,
छन्न--छन्न करते ...चलो सिक्के गरीबों में लुटा आएं !
कूड़ा--कचरा घर का , सबने जतन से किया सफाया,
चलो , दिलों से ---गलत-फेहमिया और दूरियां भगाएं !
बात बस ...इतनी सी , कि क्यों न कुछ नया किया जाये ,
इस बार , घरों से ज़्यादा...अपने दिल कि अच्छाइयों को जगमगाएँ !

Channelizing One's Emotions !

AM
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Had a restless night. Vague sense of disquiet and simmering turmoil. In my dream too , I distinctly had the horror of feeling strangled slowly and relentlessly...by some gnarled unknown hands.Throat parched...with droplets of sweat glistening on my brow, I woke up disoriented and tremulous. Had a glass of cool water , and sat in the balcony , to get back my still erratic breath and calm my senses.

Quietly..away ...away ...from the 'Human Mela' ! The soft cool morn breeze ...the tweeting and chirping of a cluster of birds ...a pair of squirrels playing hide-n-seek.....slowly , I seemed to get back a bit of semblance. What was it that had so plagued me , in my subconcious mind ?

Tell me , pray ! Why are human-beings so devious , so ruthless ...so conniving ?Power and money ....more power and money ! A rat-race, each trying to demean and belittle others . Suck up to those who can make them feel secure in this false , gilded society. Hurt the ones who truly care , trample upon them and march ahead !

Why can't one have a simple, beautiful caring heart ? Love ..and live...and let live ? Wait a minute ! Just close your eyes and think ! Really THINK ! Who are those who truly matter to you ? Well ..hold on to these for dear life ! Love them , care for them , take care of every need of theirs ! These are the precious pearls which will glow in your soul , even in your darkest moments !

Even the wide , wonderful Universe has a limited space. Gosh ! Then how can you burden your poor heart and mind with all- and- sundry ? Doesn't mean that you become hard--hearted or cruel . Care two hoots about the cruel barbs and pricks that come your way . And keep space for those who need you , deserve you ! Let your heart be light , your soul soft and beautiful . Be kind and generous , but keep your emotions in check !

Already I'm feeling happier , the knots within have eased and I'm smiling ---tra-la-la-laa !! I wonder whether all this made any sense to you ?

I know the crux of the matter . One has got to CHANNELIZE ONE'S EMOTIONS . Only then can you be your best , and give your best ! Happy 'Living ' !!

Removing Clutter !
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Here -a -clutter...there a -clutter...
Everywhere ..a- clutter--clutter !
Before you get drowned,
...in this utter --clutter ...
Cut it off ...chuck it off !
O'this throttling ----clutter -clutter !!

Eureka ! Eureka !!
My heart found this song today morn , and from that moment I'm feeling like the cat's whiskers! Life suddenly feels light as a feather and my mind-and--soul , which in the gloomy hot -n -sultry bygone days had wilted and parched and been down-in-the-dumps ...suddenly took a joyous leap ! Yes ! At this particular juncture of life , in this particular mesh of life's flamboyant pattern , this came like a 'Blessed Mantra' ---to save my soul !

Before I could get diverted , I started off with my 'kitchen --royale' ! In a matter of around 40 minutes, I grabbed at various pots-n-pans , containers and casseroles , nick-and-nacks.......which I thought were cramping my little kitchen and had outdone their utility . Almost out-of-breath , but in a jiffy before I could change my mind , I heartily donated most of it to two of my workers , to their utter delight , and the rest I packed in my car to donate to some others.

After doing justice to my morning lot of patients, I drove off to my favourite lake , and had a quiet "me--time' ...with some soft music and soothing breeze. My frenzied brain and mind seemed to lull and quieten ...and a beautiful languor slowly gripped my senses.

And I thought . ...and thought some more . Just getting rid of a bit of home --clutter had given me so much peace and joy .Well ! Our minds and hearts and souls were so much more pious and precious places. Like temples. Don't we need to un-clutter these ? We so often carry so much of unnecessary burdens. These gnaw at our minds, at our psyche, and we seem to gradually lose the very spark of life. We cling on to some thoughts , some feelings as if our very life depended on them ! Some perverse instinct makes us cling desperately to these. They fill us with sorrow and despair , and we let them claw into our minds. Like gangrene !

Well ! Take a grip , please ! LET GO !...of things you can't change , of thoughts which belittle you , of feelings which strangle you . Do it whole--heartedly . Solemnly . Firmly. Believe you me , you will feel such a rush of delightful relief, and you can begin to soar once again .....high up in a glorious world of new dreams , new ambitions , with a burst of sparkling zest and enthusiasm .

The world is yours again ! ..to live ..to relish..to conquer !
Try it !
Remove the clutter !
...and get a new lease of 'life' !
Cheers !!

राधे कृष्ण !
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
राधा कृष्णा .......कृष्ण --राधा.....
ना जाने इनमे कैसा नाता ?
दिल में मीठी मुस्कान छलका जाता ,
नाम जब इनका , संग--संग आता !

कैसा प्यार ...ये अद्भुत लगाव इनका,
सारी कायनात को हिला जाता....
'माधुर्य' से भी ज़्यादा मधुर रिश्ता इनका,
हर 'परिभाषा' को चोंका जाता !

ना छल , न कपट .....अनोखा 'अपनापन',
छेड़ --खानी को वो अनूठा आलम ....
इस 'प्यार' में खोया गोपियों का 'प्यारा' ,
'बंसी' की धुन से मदहोश जग सारा !

ऐसा प्यारा 'प्यार' पा कर ही तो.
राधिका खिल उठी , हुई बावरी ...
'वन' के मोर- -मयूरी--मृग भी,
देवताओं संग मुस्काये ..वारी--वारी !!

क्या तुम हकीकत थे .....या महज़ इक ख्वाब ?
उलझे हुए सवालों में.....झिझकता हुआ जवाब ,
ढलती हुई रातों में ....खिलता हुआ 'आफताब' ,
डूबती हुई साँसों में.....ज़िन्दगी का आगास ,
बिन बोले लफ़्ज़ों में ...मीठा- सा साज़ ,
तप्ती हुई रेतों में.....बारिशों का उल्हास ,
भीगी हुई पलकों में.....खुशियों की इक आस,
थकी हुई कहानियों में....'अफसानों' का आभास,
वीरानी ज़िन्दगी में ....मोहब्बतों का एहसास,
नादाँ हसरतों पर...किया गया मज़ाक,
बोलो !.....
तुम हकीकत थे..... या महज़ इक ख्वाब ??

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
धड़कनो को 'गीत ' बना जाती हैं तुम्हारी यादें ,
साँसों में 'इत्र ' घोल जातीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें,
और फिर नज़र ना लगे, काले टीके की तरह ,
आँखों में 'नीर' ..छोड़ जातीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें !

समंदर में 'तूफ़ान' ले आतीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें ,
सोये दिल में 'अरमां ' जगा जातीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें ,
सपनो में 'चार चाँद' लगा जातें हैं तुम्हारी यादें ,
फिर से 'क़त्ल ' ...कर जातीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें !

तन्हाइयों में बिजलियाँ , कौंध जातीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें,
अरमानों के 'कोपले' ..खिला जातें हैं तुम्हारी यादें ,
नज़र ना लगे .....काले टीके की तरह...बड़े प्यार से,
सिसकियाँ ...छोड़ जातीं हैं तुम्हारी यादें !

Women's Day
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Women's Day
I don't wanna be a 'spoil-sport', in any way,
So much ado...,about our 'glorious' Women's day !
My day began , my hands shook ,hazy tears made a cloud,
The 'News-paper' fell , as the head--lines screamed loud.
A day--old babe , yes , a 'Girl' --you got it right,
Found strangled and thrown in a posh 'Arera' site.
The next page held the gruesome (common) news,
Of a fourteen year innocent, raped and abused.
I gulped my tears, forced a smile on my face,
As a couple of bouquets I received, for 'Women's Day'.
A frail 'patient' with perforated ear , was the next gift to me,
Battered by her drunk husband , this mother-of-three.
Sorry ! I don't want to be a 'spoil-sport' in any way ,
And make guys squirm , this 'Women's Day'.

ये'पल...वो'पल..
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
'कल--कल' करते बह चले , देखो ये 'पल',
कभी ठहर -ठहर, कभी 'उछल-उछल',
हाथ न आया-- न 'ये' पल ...ना 'वो' पल,
बेहेक्ता, इठलाता, फिसलता ये चंचल पल !

कुछेक 'पलों' में बसी सौ--सौ ज़िन्दगी,
कभी सन्नाटा ओढ़े ...खौफनाक -से पल,
हर पल की अपनी अनूठी 'कहानी',
कभी ठहाके लगाती ---कभी मूक--बेज़ुबानी !

'पलों' से बन गयी झिलमिलाती हुई चादर,
हरेक की , अपनी अनूठी , बड़ी-ही ख़ास,
खुशिओं के , कभी आंसुओं के समन्दरों में,
भर देती अनोखे जज़्बात और एहसास !

'पलों' के इस अद्वितीय खेल को,
रोक ना सका, थाम न सका कोई पल-भर, ,
'हर' पल को 'जी', समां लो 'मन' में.....
'यादों' की खुशबू बन , महक उठे हर 'पल' !

LIFE'S MYSTERIES

PM
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
An inexplicable jargon , is mysterious 'Life',
A quintessential puzzle of joy, fear and strife.
Dazzling sometimes --with a bright burst of stars,
Horrendous at times -- gory, scary and dark.

'Love' , I find , is the most powerful trigger,
To achieve everlasting peace and soulful languor.
'Loneliness' can act as the sharpest wound,
For, natural human craving is to be loved and crooned.

Maybe, when one learns to find solace within,
A spiritual awakening, kindles a 'vision' to think.
In this world, we certainly are for a purpose,
To seek, to find, and to deliver with ardour!

Some 'force' there is, which we cannot restrain,
That gently guides us through life's shaky terrains.
Step-by-step, each of us follows a unique path,
Leaving our own indelible imprint, before we depart !

RANDOM THOUGHTS..OF A KITE (on Makar--sankranti)

PM
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Ooooh Yes !! It's my great day again ! I;m a-going on a 'Flying Spree ' today , with Ballu and Kanha, and HOW excited am I ! ...Up , up , higher up the hill we are running --me dressed in bold stripes of glorious green and dashing turquoise , with a vibrant yellow 'Smiley" in the center --don`t I look Smart?? !

This is going to be my eighth flight -- soaring high in the sky , daring , dancing dipping and rising , merrily swaying , flirting with the breeze , swishing safely past the trees , winking at a few birds......Straightening , somersaulting...almost breathless.....

How enchanting ! How truly Wondrous !...........

But today there has been a vague nagging feeling in the bottom of my heart . Some kind of unrest . i fly high . I fly beautifully and royally ., and SAFELY. I fly ALONE ......

Isn't it how it should be? Two kites -- flying in different directions --where each can reach unimaginable heights , quiver with ecstasy in the wild winds , soak the colours of the rain-bow ---and then return SAFELY back home ?

If two kites are flying in the SAME direction , there is every chance of one , or both of the kites to get grievously hurt , brutally cut or even torn to bits . I KNOW this is true -- but-- Oh my funny heart !!...Today I CRAVE to go a-flying with my mate-kites. I want peril....I want Danger...I want Ecstasy. I want to LIVE --- even if i end dying !

I want to FLY with a thudding heart , with blood surging through my veins ---- meeting , loving , kissing , enticingly flirting and ruthlessly fighting with my mate-kite . Play a dangerous game . So what if I WIN....or I LOSE ??

Atleast I would have LIVED fully !!

कल लिखा था , कुछ --कुछ,
शायद पंहुचा था आप तक भी 'कुछ' ,
पत्ते झड़े....मौसम बदले,
इरादे मुरझाए, कुछ मुस्कुराये,
कलम चलती रही , कभी सकुचाई,
कभी बेधड़क आसमा पे लिखती हुई,
हर स्याही की बूँद में हज़ारों 'सपने',
हर सपने में संजोये हुए वो 'अपने',
'साँसों' में तड़प , वो मीठी-सी ललक,
जीने का ये खट्टा--मीठा एहसास ..
जो बनाये इस ज़िन्दगी को 'ख़ास' ,
सिलसिला यूहीं चलता रहे,
सितारों को साँसों से पिरोते रहें ,
नव वर्ष , नयी कोमल तमन्नाएँ .....
इसी तरह दिल लुभाती रहें,
तरन्नुम और साज़ छलकातीं रहें...
कुछ ...कुछ !

ऐतबार
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
खुद से ज़्यादा उनपे ऐतबार किया,
यही सबसे हसीं गुनाह किया ?
फनाह कर दिए किस क़दर सपने,
ज़िन्दगी में ना फिर कोई खुमार रहा.
हकीक़त और सपनो में इस क़दर कश्मकश हुई,
क्या सच , क्या झूठ ---हर धड़कन उलझ -सी गयी ,
ज़िन्दगी में 'वो' पल,और हर पल में ढूंढी ज़िन्दगी,
समंदर में तूफ़ान , और नैय्या हाथो से छूट-सी गयी,
फिर एक झोंका आया --जादुई--पत्वार हाथ पड़ी,
डूबती सांसें तेज़ हुईं --'सपनों' की फिर झंकार हुई,
आँखों में चमक , मोतियों की खनकती बौछार हुई,
'ऐतबार' ने फिर मुस्काके मीठी अंगड़ाई ली,
बहार ही बहार , खुशबुओं संग - छा गयी !

बस ...एक 'बुलबुला' !
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
बस एक 'बुलबुला' हैं हम ,
ओस की एक नन्ही बूँद,
तिनके भर की हमारी ज़िन्दगी ,
एक 'पल' का है भृम !

किस क़दर बेहक जाते इस 'पल' में,
कितनी बार जी के मर जाते,
और फिर मर के जी उठते,
लहू--लुहान हो जाते हम !

खुशियाँ दमकती , आँखें चमकती,
विभोर, लीन,,खो जाते हैं हम,
कभी इस क़दर तड़प जाते,
हर 'सांस' मानो एक परिश्रम !

एक 'बुलबुले' में क्यों इतनी 'जान' दी ?
'प्रभु' बोलो, --क्यों ये 'अरमान' दिए?
दिन ढलता --रात ढलती...
बस तेरे चरणो में सो जाते हम !

पर , आएं हैं तो जीना ही होगा,
बहुत पाना , बहुत खोना ही होगा,
'बुलबुला' चाहे 'छोटा-सा' हो,
हर 'स्वप्न' को संजोना ही होगा !

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
When the perfume of happiness fills the soul,
When a strange quivering makes you crave for some more,
When every tingling nerve feels sensations ten-fold,
Well !---maybe that's 'Winter' knocking at the door !

Come october -- the nip-in-the-air excites,
The flavour of 'festivals' fills every bite,
Colours and lights , flowers and hymns,
A 'spiritual awakening' thrills to the brim.

A wave of bonhomie fills the air,
Gifts and greetings bring joy and cheer,
Glitter and glamour , seem the theme around,
Dancing and singing and music abound.

October , then november and december ,too,
Splash happiness and delight in every hue,
Worries and woes are chucked behind,
As we await the 'New-year' with eager minds !

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
One 'Life' to live , and oh ! Such little time ,
A million things to do , not a minute to whine.
Scattered is such beauty ---'gems' so sublime,
Don't try to gather'em --just capture them in mind !

'Live' each 'emotion' --let the heart truly 'beat ',
Breaths will stop ...will abate and ecstatically leap !
Twinkling eyes ..mesmerized with rainbow streaks,
'Life's sparkling 'fire-works'---performing magical feats !

No time for hatred , for jealousy and greed,
Enough in Lord's bounty --to fulfill each's need !
In symphony if we dance, above caste-and--creed,
With the sweet music of love ---no animosity to breed !

With compassion we 'give' --with empathy we care ,
That which the God's gifted us, amply we share !
The bliss which we then get , is sublime and rare,
As , proudly, 'the sands-of--time'--will our imprints wear !

Just one question...to the esteemed 'Blogger's Park ' Team.
When one Article \ Poem \ Story of a writer is published in Editor's pick...earlier one vanishes ...as per d rules, I think.
But writers usually get spurts of creativity.....so what should be done ?
And so an earlier (maybe better) article is removed even before it has been read !
Perplexed..;)

Far From The Madding Crowd ---AT MADHAI !

PM
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar






Far and near ...away from home.....
In search of peace and inner calm....
In tune with Nature...in harmony with soul...
Traipsing like fairies o'er hilly meadows...
I found a 'niche'---that claimed my heart..
It's a part of me --and I'm it's part !

Well ! I'm talking here of a sweet , quaint little forest destination called 'MADHAI' .....lovely in it's simplicity, a blessed calm and a unique feel of being one with Nature. A dreamy destination located on the banks of river Denwa. A beautiful 3 to 4 hours drive from Bhopal, just around 130 kms away. A Wild--life -Sanctuary , it is a part of the lush Satpura Range , with abounding greenery and an exciting spray of flora and fauna.

The first trip to this glorious jewel , situated on the confluence of the Denwa and Sonibhadra rivers , was with a handful of co--doctors, and somehow that trip became mesmerisingly alluring ! ......with a tinge of dangeous excitement. Why , I'll tell you in a while !

What made me fall in love with this place was the water--body we had to cross by boat, leaving all vehicles away on the other side. So that lovely enchanting sense of being isolated from the world. You could now enter into your own charming world, in a strange way still untouched and quaint. Pretty decent Cottages and Resorts and Rooms are available, can be booked priorly. A splash of colours will intoxicate your senses, as beautiful peacocks come strutting by ! Deers will come to you , small and dainty. The nip in the air added to the thrill.

Now one can opt for a Gypsy \ Jeep Safaris into the forest area, which closely surrounds the cottages. A 3 to 4 hours of delightful exploring through the lush forests, studded with deer, black bucks , bisons, spotted deer(wild), wild boars , some crocodiles and a plethora of migratory birds.

A few tigers and panthers are there ---but , to be honest , I saw a panther just once in my four trips. Tiger pug marks were shown often and excitedly . Yes ! I do remember hearing a tiger roar in the middle of the night, when we were enjoying a camp--fire. Our fun--filled song--and--dance sessions chilled on hearing these roars !

One can take Elephant rides too. The beautiful lush greenery , the chilly cool breeze, the chirping of birds , the clouds soaring by ......and then suddenly we were delighted by a glorious peacock dance which held us in a trance ! What beauty ---what grace ! These moments have been indelibly captured in my heart.

These days , a plethora of Hotels have come up , on the other side of the river. Ranging from dainty resorts to elite hotels. So one can choose something different each time. After a soul--satisfying connection with Nature, one can enjoy fun- and--frolic at the resorts. Cosy camp--fires, simple delicious food. The adventurous ones can take another very early morning Safari.

Lulled and at rest, a peaceful song bubbling in our hearts, away , away ...from all burdens......soft jungle sounds tingling the ears....and as if in a dream , a herd of dainty deer joined in to give us company. Always an exuberant one, I started feeding them. And that was when an exquisite spotted deer marched to me, I didn't realize that it was a wild one, until I felt a sudden sharp pain in my hand ! Yes, to my utter chagrin , I had been bitten by a deer! Deer --Dear -ME !!!!!!

To this day I'm teased by my friends about HOW anyone could EVER be bitten by a deer !! Well friends, I tell you , I don't know why such things happen ONLY to me ! But , jokes apart, now we must know that there are tame breed of deer, but rarely , a wild one can join the timid ones. So , if you don't want to get vaccines (and jabs from friends! ---be a little careful..;)

My latest trip to Madhai was when my darling son had visited us from the U S, and my newly--married daughter and her adorable new--born were with us. And that memory makes my eyes smile and my heart sing ......

I've traveled wide across the world----love exploring the varied terrains ..the varied cultures.
But some quaint little places hold a special magic.

Like MADHAI !..:)

My gratitude...Sir Shuklaji !
So true ...what you say !
But we want more tourists...hence more resorts , hotels.......
But as long as they remain on 'this side' ...and maintain the sanctity of the quainter 'heart' of madhai ....
I guess the two sides to the coin !

Thanks Rashmiji
Madhai is unspoiled beauty, whereas this side of the river in due course of time will be spoiled by new construction but thanks to nature the real area of activities is likely to remain undamaged.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts

INDEPENDENCE DAY ..........For Me ----- Today .
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
OK ----I write --again .
Been a very busy day. Now nearing 12 mid-night. But I suddenly felt like letting out my feelings. In a jiffy . As I always do !

First of all . YES !!!!
I AM VERY PROUD OF BEING AN INDIAN . Period. And hence , I have full and absolute right to voice my feelings. Negative .. and Positive.

A doctor by profession. Well supported in all my pursuits by my husband. Adored by my kids , my friends , my patients , my family. I truly thank God .

Let me please BEG each of you just one thing . Please, please , PLEASE do away with fanaticism in religion. To my mind , that is the BIGGEST deterrent to human race. Just imagine the heights we can achieve, if we decided NOT to lose our limited energies in this futile field. What a lovely world we could leave for the future generations, if we could do away with animalistic behaviour and prejudices , based on religion.

Instead, we could all practice "SPIRUTIALISM' . One God . What I was taught when I was a tiny--tot. Be good , do good , follow your ambitions, lead a full-filled life , do your precious bit for your co--humans, give as much as possible to Nature , to yourself and to humanity.

Yes , you have every right to achieve all your dreams. But these dreams should all be for the betterment of your own souls, and for the world around you.

Love your own self . But not at the risk of injuring another. Find happiness . But not at the risk of making another sad.

You are but a speck on this earth. A miniscule particle in Eternity. NATURE --is indistructible. It will go on ...forever. It is WE----- who will perish ---so that new forces come on.

Let us all leave our BEST. on the sands of time.

India ---is a blessed Nation. Let it remain the best. Always.

Jai Hind !

लिखी गयी वो ख्वाबों की कहानी,
धड़कनो की अमिट स्याही से,
हर--इक सांस से पिरो लिया...
एहसासों की इस 'माला' को !

कैसे 'बिखर' सकेगी ये भला?
इसमें 'मंदिरों' की आस्था...
देवो पे चढ़े फूलों का इत्र इनमे,
भोली--भली , निश्छल 'आशा' !

रहेगी हमेशा ये झिलमिलाती,
ना कोई गिला --न शिकवों का सिला,
हर याद बना मोती...बेशुमार कीमती..
दिल में 'जुगनुओं' की तरह !!

Flying With The Pen......Again !
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Hurt me till it hurts you. O Lord! I love you and my tears will merge with yours and the rainbows of hope will arise.
Rabindranath Tagore.

Why I begin on this note, I don't know. But the words just spilled out of my heart. This is how I almost always write ----a fountain flowing straight from my soul----undeterred, spontaneous, sometimes ecstatic and wondrous, sometimes melancholic and bitter--sad, sometimes galloping wildly on dreamy clouds ---unbriddled and untamed ...to reach the zenith of Paradise !

A stray thought suddenly struck me. How much more time I have ---to read and write? At different junctures of life , one often wonders whether they would be able to fulfill their goals ..in life. I guess people have different aspirations and goals . Some want to have a particular mint in their bank--booty , some may want a plethora of houses and properties , yet others may want to traverse round the world. Yes , some may want to delve into deep spirituality , trying to find true ' meanings' of everything. Some (urghh) --want to drown themselves in Politics or in 'Fanatic religionism'. Some want to unravel all the mysteries of the world ---and discover more and more. Well --to everyone their own.

This morn , as I traipsed out of my bed , muddle--headed from a dreamy sleep , into one more new day , one look at the book lying by my bedside , and this was the first thought ...."How much more time I had ----to read and to write ' ?? Before the inevitable humdrum of a typical day ---starting with the shrill bells, rustling of news--papers, the sweetest background humming of the 'koel' , the bugging everyday--routine -of deciding the day's menu...........well ----- I rushed to the computer , to reign in and pen my thoughts and wonderings ...before they flew away !

I know that I have to rush back to my day's routine --hubby's breakfast and patients and then a meeting ...and blah--blah--blah !... but whenever I have a quiet moment , I will again deeply think about my first morning thought. Yes , the moments are all a--counted. So I will have to choose with care , zeal , love and joy.

And do what makes me happiest !

And I sincerely hope that all of you too do---just what is of prime importance to you !
Rem acu tetigisti ??
Tali Ho !!...;)..:)

नीरस आँखें..
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
आज फिर आँखें नीरस हैं..
वो धुंदलापन शायद आंसुओं से है...
देखे जा रही हूँ , बिन पालक झपकाए ,
पर नज़र कुछ नहीं आ रहा है....
सांसें चल रही हैं, पर ज़िन्दगी गायब है,
आहटों में एक खौफनाक चुप्पी है,
एक घुटन है --जकड़ती जा रही है,
एक थकन --जो डुबोती जा रही है,
सपने देखने की चाहत भी सो गयी है,
उड़ान भरने वाले पंख मुरझा गए हैं..
बुत बनी बैठी हूँ ---शायद कोई अचम्भा हो जाये,
डूबती साँसों में फिर जान आ जाये....
या हो जाये सब तमाम...नींद आ जाये..
या फिर इस तरह जागूँ, की 'ज़िन्दगी' छा जाये !

The Quivering Leaf

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Deep in thought , as I walked my way ,
Early this morn --on a sunny day,
Life seemed listless , as it often does,
When summer's fury thrashes away . .

A bird cuckooed , some insects fussed,
As squirrels gleefully hid their nuts,
Life seemed barren --like the vista ahead,
My thoughts were numb, dreams seemed dead.

A breeze came by, rustling my hair,
Weary and thirsty, I found a broken chair,
Took a deep breath and plaintively stared,
Unseeingly --at the tall trees , almost bare.

My breath got caught, my senses took a bolt, ,
As suddenly my eyes caught a beauty --untold !
Quivering precariously , was a dainty leaf,
Dancing tremulously --in ecstasy or grief ?

It's 'time' had come , it knew too well,
But it proudly swung , blissfully aware.
Another 'journey' --it knew was o'-so- near,
Time to bid adieu to its mother dear !

My heart was thudding --or had it stopped?
As I stared at the leaf, about to drop !
My whole life seemed to be at stake,
Desperate to know the little leaf's fate!

And then came a 'miracle' of Nature's bliss ,
A lovely cool gushing wind,sweetly hissed,
The leaf gleefully flung into its arms,
And flew happily into a world of charms !

My heart too, got back it's 'song',
As I knew , none of us had to wait too long!
'Dreams' sometimes wither, or seem lost ,
But 'God always sends a magic--wand , across !

My steps got a sprint, my eyes twinkled,
Creativity gleamed , new ideas bubbled,
Back I returned , enthusiastic and eager,
Ready to fly again --with zest and vigour !

ख्वाहिशों की महफ़िल और मैं !
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
'ख्वाहिशों ' की सुनहरी महफ़िल ,
से घिरी हुई हूँ मैं .....
बड़ी ही सुहानी दुनिया में,
मदहोश,उड़ चली हूँ मैं !

सबसे प्यारी दोस्त--संगिनी,
यही तो हैं 'तम्मनायें' मेरी !
ना धोका-धडी --न छल-कपट,
बस मीठी -सी आँख-मिचौली !

हर 'सांस' में मिला जीवन,
क्यूंकि हर सांस पिरोई थी
'ख्वाहिशों' की मज़बूत डोर से,
जीवन -माला , 'जीवित' है केवल इन्ही से !

'ख्वाहिशे' भोली हैं , या मैं नादाँ ?
हर उम्मीद टिकी , इन्ही पे !
आसमा से भी आगे , तारे बटोर लाऊूँ,
आशाओं की झिलमिलाती चुनरी में !

यही 'ख्वाब' बस मेरी हकीकत,
हर धड़कन से ये जुड़े हैं ,
जिस दिन ये ओझल हो जाएं ,
मैं उड़ जाऊँगी 'उस' दुनिया में !

MOTHER......
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Mother --
Is that gentle glistening dewdrop,
Quivering atop a beautiful flower.
Whose 'existence' one may sometimes forget,
But whose 'absence' drains away every colour,
Leaving the 'flower' withering ..and crumbling,
Forgetting its sprightly dance and vigour.

Mother --
Is that unique , enchanting fragrance,
That lulls and quenches all senses,
A magical whiff --that calms and soothes,
That soft hand --that firmly dispels stormy glooms,
With 'Mom' around , you're cocooned in a cozy womb,
Without her, the world becomes a black, unending tomb !

Mother---
Needs no 'special' days to be remembered,
She lingers lovingly --in each breath , awake or aslumber,
No author or poet or philosopher could quite 'capture' ,
That endless fountain of tender love called 'Mother' !
'Cos she's God's own proud signature,
His greatest gift --to man and nature !

तू तो 'माँ' होती है, ऐ 'धरा',
फिर क्यों तू लड़खड़ा गयी,
अपने ही जिगर के टुकड़ों पर ,
क्यों तू 'केहर' ढा गयी?

ऐसा क्या कसूर था ,
मासूम उन् हज़ारों का,
सपनो के बादलों में वो,
बुन रहे थे हज़ार ख़्वाबों को !

कलेजा ना कांपा, ओ माँ-धरा,
जननी होके..अपने 'लालों' को,
बेवक़्त तूने दफना दिया,
नन्हे 'फूलों' को कफ़न उढा दिया !

दहाड़ रही है, सिसक रही तू,
जानती हूँ , बावरी हो रही तू,
किस-किस-के पापों का फल,
अपने और अपनों पे ढा रही तू !

'माँ' का कलेजा फटता जब,
कायनात सारी हिल जाती है,
देवता भी सेहम जाते हैं,
जब ऐसी तूफानी रात आती है !

'माँ' ..अपनी ममता को,
ना कर इस तरह बदनाम,
थम जा, ठहर जा, रुस्वा ना कर,
अपने बालकों को तू क्षमा कर !

रूठी--हुई--सी कलम
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
रूठ-सी गयी है , कुछ 'कलम' मेरी,
जानती हूँ , थोड़ा मनाना होगा,
खफा--खफा-सी देखो हो गयी मुझसे,
मानती हूँ ...उसे मनाना होगा !

साथ निभाती हरदम वो मेरा,
हर अश्रु को देती शब्दों में ढाल,
खुशिओं संग मेरी, कलम भी खिलखिलाती,
बिखेर देती , मोती--शब्दों की बौछार !

गलती मेरी --मैं ही तो निकली खुदगर्ज़,
बिटिया और बिटिया-की-बिटिया में,
इस क़दर हो हाई निहाल --बेहाल,
भूल गयी अपनी प्यारी , कलम-औ -दवात !

अब फिर हूँ अकेली , वही 'अकेला' दर्द साथ,
कपकपाते हाथों से थाम रही , फिर कलम का हाथ !
यही मेरी दोस्त--संगिनी, कह देती मंन की हर बात,
घावों को हौले से भरके, उड़ चलती मेरे साथ !

आ 'कलम' , फिर संग हम उड़ान लगाएं,
सपनो की बदरिया में, तारों को टांक आएं !
फूलों की खूश्बुओं को,सारे जहां में फैलाएं,
ना रूठ मुझसे --- हम फिर लहरों के तरन्नुम गाएं !

इंद्रधनुषी रंगों ने भांग -संग मचाया नटखट हाहाकार !

इस वर्ष, 'कान्हा' ने भी खेली लीला निराली ,
खुद आसमां में ढल गए, लिए हज़ारों पिचकारी !
धरती--बनी 'राधा' , सिमटी, सकुचाई, मुस्काई,
जब 'कृष्ण' ने बारिशों की फुहारें , उसपे छलकायी !

मदमस्त हुईं फ़िज़ाएं, हर तरफ बिखरी ख़ुशी की लहर,
'टेसुओं' की 'आग' ने ...मचा दी जज़्बातों की केहर!
रोमांच है, रोमॅन्स है, कुछ नशीला--सा एहसास है,
हर शख्स लगे मदमस्त, सबकी 'अदा' कुछ ख़ास है !

जितना ज़्यादा डूबे 'रंगों' में, उतना ही 'मन' कुछ 'साफ़' हुआ,
अँधेरी , डूबती आशाओं पे, फिर सपना 'साकार' हुआ !
मन की 'आराधना' , कुछ परम सीमा तक समा गयी,
'होरी' का त्यौहार, एक अद्वित चमत्कार फैला गयी !

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
So it's 'Women's Day' , once again,
And pen in hand, I wait for the ink to freak..
I wait with bated breath , once again,
To see --what a woman;'s mind had to speak !

I'm surprised , when the pen hesitates,
O'! don't I have the whole wild world to 'blame',
Why then does the ink flush and fade,
When I can yell 'Fie' --to the entire human race !

This year I seem to mature , some more,
To turn 'that inward eye' , towards myself !
And I realize with certainty that the onus lies,
On my own self , to prevent all atrocities !

God made us 'women' , thank God for this,
Hold your head up with grace and pride !
Don't whimper , or grumble that things are amiss,
YOU are the master-of--your life's joyous ride!

How you are to be treated, is for YOU to decide,
No man , no woman ---can break your spirited soul !
'Nature' has gifted you a plethora of treasures wide,
How you use these, will make you sadly broken or whole!

One more thing , I know for sure--o' Women dear!
Is that 'WE Women' have to hold hands together !
Try and help each female around, be kind,
Please don't try to belittle them or try to out-shine !

Every 'human' is 'humane ' --each with a million flaws,
But the benevolent Lord has enough --for every one of us!
So , instead of tearing each other with envious 'claws' ,
Men and women together can paint a gorgeous 'paradise'!

Dr Rashmi Kumar.

जो तुम ना भूले, जो हम न भूले , ऐसी सौगातें !
कुछ भीगे हुए पल , कुछ उलझी हुई सांसें ,
कुछ 'धड़कनो ' की बातें , शर्मआतीसी रातें !

थे दो 'अजनबी' , मिलाया जिन्हे 'तक़दीर' ने,
कुछ हम घबराये , कुछ तुम घबराये, बंधे जब 'डोर' में,
अब तक तो सिर्फ अल्फ़ाज़ों का साथ था,
लम्बी-लम्बी बातें,,,वो विव्हल 'फ़ोन' का इंतज़ार था!

'खत' भी तो थे ---कांपते हाथो से जो पढ़ा करते थे ,
वो भोली--मीठी बातें , जो एक-दूजे को बयां करते थे !
फिर बंध गए हम --और निरंतर बंधते ही चले गए,
संभाल रखा अपना-अपना अस्तितव....पर जाने कैसे 'एक' होते गए!

दो 'फूलों' ने चमन महकाया, हमे माँ- पिता बनाया,
हमारा बचपना हुआ कुछ कम, जिम्मेदारिओं ने बड़ा बनाया!
अब 'उद्द गए दोनों 'पंछी' अपना-अपना आशियाँ बनाने,
और एक और 'जादूगिरी --चमत्कार' ..इस मोड़ ने दिखाया!

आ गए और भी करीब, खुद 'अपने' से तुम ज़्यादा अज़ीज़,
लड़ाईओं का सिलसिला अब भी जारी , मीठी 'खिटपिट' लागे लज़ीज़!
ना जाने क्यों , कैसे , हम ही बने एक--दूजे के लिए?
अब मान लिया 'प्रभु' को ......अपरम्पार लीला वो लिए !

आशिक़ी के इस त्यौहार में, क्या पेश करूँ मैं,
मुस्कराहट और हंसी ....बस यही भेंट देती हूँ मैं !
बस इतनी सी बात , कहे देती हूँ आज , समझ लेना,
एक कदम भी ..अकेला ..ना छोडना..कभी ना छोडना !

So Much To Do!
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Gosh ! So much to do , and such little time!
Hush ! Again I'm in a frenzied mind !
So much to read , so much to write ,
So much to travel ...so much to find !
So much beauty in every nook, in every hue,
I soak it hungrily , this glowing illusive dew !
So much of nature's wine , so much to dine,
Treasure splashed everywhere by Lord divine!
So much to love , so much to care,
Not a moment left , to pine or despair!
Flowers to enchant , music to hear,
Sands to be felt , beneath feet bare !
The lull of the oceans, the silence of night,
The chirp of the birds, the sounds of delight!
So much splendour , You gave O' Lord!
And such little time, in our life's record!
Alright! I promise, I'll live ..love ..and learn,
and leave something of me, when my time is done!

ज़िन्दगी......बस एक 'एहसास'
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
क्या ले कर आते हैं हम , बन्दे!
क्या हम छोड़ जाते हैं?
खाली हाथ आते हैं --
खाली हाथ लौट जाते हैं ..
और चंद 'साँसों' के बीच,
सात जनम जी जाते हैं !

कितने 'एहसास' हमे छू जाते हैं ,
हंसा जाते हैं , रुला जाते हैं ,
तड़पा जाते हैं , मेहेका जाते हैं,
आसमा पे उड़ा ले जाते हैं ,
ज़मीं पर पटक जाते हैं.....
ज़र्रा-ज़र्रा, कुछ चकनाचूर कर जाते हैं.

'इस' पन्ने से शुरू 'ज़िन्दगी'..
और 'उस' पन्ने पे हुई खलास.
हरेक की अपनी 'अनूठी' कहानी,
और हरेक के लिए वही 'ख़ास'!
'मोह-माया' की जकड़ो में,
जो पाया , वही ना आये रास!

जी ले फिर , हर पल , ऐ बन्दे,
मर-मर के जी ..चाहे जी-जी के मर,
बिखेर दे , इन् 'एहसासे--मोतियों' को
ज़िन्दगी की ठंडी--तपती रेत पर,
खाली हाथ आया थेा , ऐ बन्दे !
सब छोड़, खाली हाथ फिर निकल !

Random Thoughts Of A Kite....(on Makar--Sankrant Day)

From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
Ooooh Yes ! It's my great day again ! I'm a-going on a 'Flying Spree ' today , with Ballu and Kanha, and how very excited am I Up , up , higher up the hill we are running --me dressed in bold stripes of Glorious green and dashing turquoise , with a vibrant yellow 'smiley" in the centre --don`t I look smart ? !

This is going to be my eighth flight -- soaring high in the sky , daring , dancing dipping and rising , merrily swaying , flirting with the breeze , swishing safely past the trees , winking at a few birds......straightening , somersaulting...almost breathless.....

How enchanting ! How truly wondrous !...........

But today there has been a vague nagging feeling in the bottom of my heart . Some kind of unrest . I fly high . I fly beautifully and royally ......and 'safely'. I fly ALONE ......

Isn't it how it should be? Two kites -- flying in different directions --where each can reach unimaginable heights , quiver with ecstasy in the wild winds , soak the colours of the rain-bow ---and then return SAFELY back home ?

If two kites are flying in the SAME direction , there is every chance of one , or both of the kites to get grievously hurt , brutally cut or even torn to bits . I KNOW this is true -- but oh my funny heart !!...Today I desperately crave to go a-flying with my mate-kites. I want peril....I want danger...I want ecstasy. I want to LIVE --- even if I end up dying !

I want to FLY with a thudding heart , with blood surging through my veins ---- meeting , loving , kissing , enticingly flirting and ruthlessly fighting with my fellow--kites . Play a dangerous game . So what if I WIN....or I LOSE ??

Atleast I would have LIVED fully !!

एक नई कहानी...
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
लो , लिख दी एक नई कहानी...
ना कलम है , न ही दवात,
ना बड़े -बड़े उलझे अल्फ़ाज़,
बस, कुछ भीगे-से कोमल एहसास...
तो , 'अंकित' कर दी इसे सीधे दिल पे,
हर धड़कन के साथ गूंजे ये मंन में,
गूंथ रखा है इन्हे आंसुओं की लड़ी से,
चाहो तो पढ़ लो, आँखों के 'दर्पण' में !
लो, लिख दी एक नई कहानी....
कुछ मीठी--खट्टी , बेज़ुबानी.........

Last Day Of The Year
From Dr.Rashmi Salil Kumar
It's the last day of the year ,
And by Joe! Isn't it acting crazy?
The chill already had us in tenters,
Sudden rains have made the world hazy!

So cantankerous are you, O'-so-wild!
Dear 31st December of this year ,
Like a tremiulous , petulant child,
Refusing to let go ,adamant with fear!

See --here we all are , full of joy,
Waiting for a new plethora of colours,
Why then do you cling , to your box of 'toys'?
Why don't ye too , wait for 'new' wonders?

Let go , dear 'year' --we carry you in our hearts,
A beautiful world awaits us, we wait with bated breath!
Let's both ,turn over a new 'leaf' , let's make a fresh start!
We bid you 'bye' --with lots of gratitude, love and no regrets!

Dr Rashmi Kumar
