और हो क्यूँ…?

इच्छायें छोटी नहीं हैं मेरी, और हों क्यूँ, चलना मुझे है तो मंजिलें भी में ही तय करूँ…

रोशनी कम पसंद नहीं मुझे, और हो क्यूँ, जलना मुझे है तो आग की ऊंचाई भी में ही तय करूँ….!

रोजाना (नया 5&6)

वही छुपाना वही दिखाना रोजाना,

वही खाना वही पकाना रोजाना,

परहेज करने को राजी तो हो जाना,

छुप छुप कर फिर वही चुराना रोजाना,

वही नौकरी वही कमाई रोजाना,

वही बहस और वही लड़ाई रोजाना,

दो मिनट का चाय विराम ले पाना,

वही कुर्सी और वही घिसाई रोजाना,




रोजाना भाग 1 & 2

रोजाना भाग 3 & 4

चीनी का परहेज…..!

चीनी सामान से यूँ ग्राहक को नेह हो गया,

देश की अर्थव्यवस्था को जैसे मधुमेह हो गया,

है लुभावना जैसे किसी मिठाई की तरह,

जिसका लालच छोड़ना है, लड़ाई की तरह,

पर रोग है तो इलाज भी करना ही होगा,

मीठा दिखे फिर भी इससे डरना ही होगा,

स्वदेशी कड़वा हो तो भी उपचार की तरह,

बढ़ाते रहें हम एक दृढ़ विचार की तरह,

जितना संभव चीनी का परहेज ही करें,

धीरे धीरे से फिर देसी परचेज भी करें,

मधुमेह की ही तरह पडोसी नहीं हटा सकते,

परहेज से पर उसका असर जरूर घटा सकते,

जिससे देश का अर्थ स्वास्थ्य अच्छा बन सके,

और सेनिको के घरों की भी दिवाली मन सके,

मध्यवर्ग का क्या??

दिल में दर्द हजारों छुपे हुए पर चुप रहता है,

अन्याय समाज और समय के हर दिन सहता है,

उच्च वर्ग की इच्छाओं को श्रम से पूरा करता है,

आवस्यकता पड़े तो गरीब का पेट भी भरता है,

देश की उन्नति की खातिर जो कर अदा करता है,

विपदा कोई आये तो भी सहयोग सदा करता है,

श्रमिक वर्ग की तकलीफों पर राजनीति बहती है,

मध्यवर्ग की विपदाओं पर कोई दृष्टि नहीं रहती है,

उच्चवर्ग के नुकसानों के अनुमान लगाये जाते हैं,

श्रमिकों के उत्थान हेतु भी कानून बनाये जाते हैं,

पर जब किसी आपदा में मध्यवर्ग की नौकरी जाती है,

तो उन उमीदों से निकल क्यों कोई मदद नहीं आती है?

अपने बोझ उठाए खुद पर आप घिसा करता है,

उसका क्या जो दो पाटों के बीच पिसा करता है?

मध्यवर्ग का क्या? कविता पाठ


Before getting into counting the pain and problems I will start with a tip, “Count your Blessings“. It is a rather simple thing you can do to cheer yourself up within seconds. If you have a roof over your head, food on the table, electricity and water running, a place to sleep, you are much better then many lakhs of people on the earth. Further, if your health is reasonably fine and you also have family and friends to talk to, you have the luxury of life. Then if you have a job to trade your time and skills for some money you are even more privileged. Finally, if you have all this at the same place, you should not even complain. But like me, if you don’t have everything I listed above but just a few of them, be hopeful and thankful for what you have.

“When you feel sad, bad or angry just Count your Blessings, to calm down and rationalise your response, not necessarily to forget the cause”

Being alone and being lonely is never the same thing. Many people like to be alone most of the time and enjoy it, many others live alone and yet remain connected to their friends, family and colleagues over virtual means. While many people enjoy an elaborate social life, many others remain lonely even in most dense social setups. It all depends on the balance of what you want and what you get, that decides how you feel about your situation.

“It all depends on the balance of what you want and what you get, that decides how you feel”

The recent times have indiscriminately isolated huge fractions of world population from each other. However, each one of us experiences this isolation very differently. Some of us feel the divide between countries for our travel plans are ruined or someone from the family is abroad. Some of us feel the lack of domestic travel affecting us for similar reasons. But most of us are unaffected by the travel restrictions and miss going out to our offices, markets or gyms & parks. All of us liked our homes but the anxiety that results from restrictions and uncertainty is affecting everyone, maybe on different levels.

Loneliness and depression are creeping in while the world is bracing for the pandemic to pass. The economic meltdown is predicted soon after the economies will try to function after the lockdowns. Job insecurity is adding to the stress of the already frustrated working from the home workforce. All the factors that are mostly out of our hand as an individual.

All this brings us to the importance of maintaining our happiness and sanity more than ever. Every loss brings the possibility of a new beginning, but only those who remain capable of harnessing the opportunity will gain. The idea is to stay positive with focusing is on whatever is going good or at least not gone bad while it could have. Learning something new or something that we have kept on hold for later, can be the most rewarding outcome from the current situation.

Maintaining health is another challenge while restricted with lack of space, equipment and motivation. Well, same old Yoga is at our rescue as it doesn’t need much space or equipment and pandemic itself is the motivation to improve immunity.

We need to believe that no one is alone in this. Whatever will happen, it will happen to all and that everybody will come out together form it. With all the learnings from nature’s punishment hopefully, we will build a better world.

stay in, stay safe and stay sane ….!!!

Though the fight is still on, its good that the light is also on…!!!

The government, all private and public sector companies are coming together and trying their best to make the whole event of lockdown as bearable as possible for everyone. The efforts from all sections working under the lockdown to keep the country operational are both unprecedented and appreciable. I get surprised every day how the seemingly inefficient infrastructure of India has improvised itself to manage the situation well beyond anyone’s expectations. Everything may not be perfect, but then, was anything anyway?

While the whole world and unfortunately including many Indians are waiting for India to fail, the responsible citizens and organisations are fighting with patience and determination to not let that happen. We wish we could do more then sitting at home and contributing to PM fund, but if this is required at the moment, then we stay at it.

Though the fight is still on, its good that the light is also on…!!!

CH 11 Health for Happiness

Weak health impairs the ability to live fully and enjoy anything. It also takes away the flavours of the world, including taste from the food, adventure from travel and other pleasures. When we are not feeling healthy, any achievement at work or personal life, how so big, it seems less relevant, compared to when we are happy and healthy.

Therefore health is always more important than the wealth of any other kind.

Our health becomes vulnerable naturally as we grow older, but it becomes weak only by our neglect. We try to blame our genes and in turn our parents for most of the weaknesses in our body. However, the biggest weakness is actually laziness that no one inherits. Bad health is not only about the elevated sugar and BP levels, but it’s also the anxiety and sadness. Lately, mental health has been recognised as important as physical health.

The biggest weakness is actually laziness that no one inherits.

In the world of hustle and stress maintaining either physical and mental health is a challenge. It is in-fact a thriving business line in which professional (read as commercial) solution providers are now making huge profits at the expense of our laziness. We don’t tend to exercise unless we have huge guilt of paying enough money for it, while the same results could be achieved by self-motivation with much less money.

Out of my personal experience in the last few months, where I had been diagnosed with something I had to get surgically removed. I had to get hospitalized, undergo surgery and a lot of mental trauma before it. Even the recovery period have been both mentally and physically challenging. While I don’t want to get into medical details of it, I want to emphasise that how I willingly transformed my eating habits with self-restraint and put those extra efforts in preparing the ‘healthy’ snacks when it became medically required by the sign of a doctor. Although I had always known the benefits of the same food and eating habits but never seriously put them in my routine.

I also want to add that although the ‘healthy’ food items are on the costly side of the grocery budget, I have saved more by avoiding outside food. I am waiting to gain enough strength to be able to exercise more regularly to avoid any such situation in future, and I hope to remain motivated this time.

Same as time, health is a commodity we can’t measure, yet we are spending it every day, not always for fruitful purposes. But unlike time with little efforts, we can preserve and also reserve the health to enjoy life in a much more fulfilling way. Most important to recognise that health can be lost in irreparable ways, so preserving health is not something we can postpone until a medical situation arises.

Preserving health is not something we can postpone until a medical situation arises.

Needless to say, a healthy person is much happier in the same situations than an unhealthy person. So for happiness to remain in our lives we need to heed to our health.


Stay Healthy and Stay Happy… !!

प्रभात चाल.. (morning walk)

सेहत ने साथ देने की सर्त रख दी,
डाइट के ऊपर कसरत की पर्त रख दी,
शुरुआत के लिए प्रभात चाल को आजमाया
और जूतों पर पार्क की गर्त रख दी,

चलने से अधिक जागने का पराक्रम,
और दिनचर्या में सजाने का उपक्रम,
शुरुआत कर लेने से ज्यादा मुश्किल,
बनाये रखना रोज का यह क्रम,

सुन्दर नज़ारे, सुहावन मौसम,
प्रभात के कई रूप अनुपम,
सूरज की पहली किरणों की गर्माहट,
आती पेड़ो से छन छन,

एक घंटे का निवेश सुबह में,
सारे दिन को करे ऊर्जित,
खुशी रहे मन में बस यूँही,
जैसे कुछ कर लिया हो अर्जित,

पर आलस भी हार नहीं माने,
रोज ही लाता नये बहाने,
ठंड कभी तो नींद कभी,
कभी बस यूँही मन भरमाने,

पर सेहत की भी जिद है,
बिना परिश्रम हाथ न देगी,
प्रभात चाल की यह प्रक्रिया,
बंद करी तो साथ न देगी.

Happy Walking

Stay healthy, stay happy.. !!

चिंता से मेरी लड़ाई है … #stress

हैं कष्ट सभी के जीवन में,

पर सच से बहुत बड़ी है चिंता,

संभल को दो शब्द भी मुश्किल,

सौ किस्से लिए खड़ी है चिंता,

हो गृह जीवन या कर्मक्षेत्र ,

हर ओर ही चिंता छाई है,

अपने खुश जीवन की खातिर,

अब चिंता से मेरी लड़ाई है,

मन है, मेरा मनोबल है ,

जीवन की इच्छा सारी है,

कमजोर कर रही भीतर से,

ये चिंता सब पर भारी है,

है बुद्धि और ज्ञान भी है,

ये मेरे तीर कमान भी हैं ,

पर बंधक है भाबुक मन,

और चिंता से संग्राम भी है,

मेरे विरुद्ध चलती है रण में,

है सोच मेरी चिंता के दल में,

थका रही मस्तिष्क को मेरे,

डुबा डुबा चिंता के जल में,

ग्रहयुद्ध सा चलता है अंदर,

मन नहीं मस्तिष्क के वस में,

सही गलत का भेद हो रहा,

धुंधला अब इस असमंजस में,

ले बचा कोई मुझको मुझसे,

दे दिखा मार्ग सुख शांति का,

साधन हो योग शास्त्र जैसा,

करे नष्ट अंधेरा भ्रान्ति का,

हो उपाय समस्या के अनुसार ही,

अनावश्यक चिंतन कम करना है,

सरल जीवन में सुख लाने को,

चिंता का दमन करना है,


More strength to all the stressed.. 🤝

De-stress and stay healthy… !!!
