धरती अत्यन्त सहिष्णु है,
पर कभी-कभी विफरती है -
भूकंप कराकर देती दंड,
ज्वालामुखी धधकती है.

आकाश की सीमा नापे कौन,
अनन्त, अनादि और विशाल,
जीवन देता खुश होने पर,
क्रुध्द होकर बनता महाकाल.

तू अतुलनीय है माँ मेरी,
देव, देवियाँ और धरती,
आकाश, मेघ, पर्वत, सरिता,
तेरी तुलना में क्या गिनती.

न कभी कुमाता हो सकती,
मैं हो जाऊँ चाहे कठोर,
यह सारी सृष्टि एक ओर,
ऐ माँ मेरी तू एक ओर.

अपराध किये मैंने ढेरों,
पर आशीर्वाद दिये तूने,
क्रिया-प्रतिक्रिया नियमों को,
झूठा ही सिध्द किया तूने.

कच्ची मिट्टी सी सोंधी है,
तू प्राणदायी शीतल पवन,
जलते दीये सी रोशन है,
ऐ माँ तुझे शत-शत नमन.

वह तुम्हारा पिता ही है जिसने --
तुम्हें अपनी बाहों में उठाकर हृदय से लगाया था,
जब तुम इस पृथ्वी पर आये थे;
उँगली पकड़ाकर चलना सिखाया था,
जब तुम लड़खड़ाये थे.

वही है वह, जो सदा तुम्हें प्रोत्साहित करता है,
तुम्हारे सारे सद्प्रयासों को दिल से सराहता है,
कोई भी लक्ष्य जब तुम पाते हो,
खुश होता है वह, मन्द-मन्द मुस्काता है.

बाल-मन - जब कोई झटका लगता है, उदास हो जाते हो,
उन क्षणों में तुम्हें मुस्कुराने की प्रेरणा देता है,
गालों पर लुढ़क आये अश्रुकणों को पोंछ,
पेट में गुदगुदी लगा हँसा देता है.

तुम्हारी कभी खत्म न होनेवाली शंकायें,
उससे बात करते ही दूर भाग जाती हैं,
तुम्हारे तरह-तरह के प्रश्न --
धैर्यपूर्वक सुनता है, समाधान निकालता है, मार्गदर्शन करता है,
आगे बढ़ने की हिम्मत अनायास आ जाती है.

कभी सोचा है --
तुम्हारी छोटी उपलब्धि पर भी,
उसकी आँखें क्यों चमक जाती हैं,
आगे तुम बढ़ते हो, गर्व से उसकी छाती,
क्यों चौड़ी हो जाती है !

बार-बार माँ की तरह
सीने से नहीं लगाता है,
वात्सल्य, स्नेह और मधुर भाव,
कोशिश कर छुपाता है.

समय के प्रवाह में,
जब स्वयं पिता बन जाओगे,
बनावटी कठोरता का राज,
खुद ही समझ जाओगे.

Mera Bharat Mahan

Three incidents of last fortnight have revealed the fact that corruption has got deep roots in our system and society. Justice Nirmal Yadav of Punjab and Haryana High Court has been recommended removal from services by Chief Justice of India on the charge established beyond doubt that she received money, mobile, land, whiskey and more from a private individual. Last week CBI exercised raids on 250 places of the country at a time and found 67 officers possessing moveable and immoveable properties worth many crores, gathered by unfair means. FIRs in black and white were lodged against corrupt officers by CBI. Illustrated daily from Delhi, The Hindustan Times in its exclusive report (June,12,2009 ) has unveiled the embezzlement in Chief Minister Relief Fund. The money received by donations for Punjab Chief Minister Relief Fund to help victims of calamities like flood, fire and serious accidents was disbursed as Diwali handouts, staff honorarium, grants for foreign tours, press clubs, bar associations, sangeet sammelan, medical treatment of MLAs. Money was also loaned to individuals and clubs. Successive Punjab governments did nothing despite repeated objections from auditors. The Prime Minister Relief Fund is also not an exception. Who can forget historic Bofors scandal by Rajiv Gandhi, Fodder scam by Laloo Yadav, Four crore kick back received in the gallery of Loksabha by Shibu Soren and crores and crores in cash found lying beneath the mattress of Sukhram. Nearly 300 crorepatis are representing poor people of socialist democratic India in newly formed Loksabha.

Recently an International agency – Political and Economic Risk Consultancy, in its report has adjudged our bureaucracy as the worst among countries of Asia. Politicians after sincere efforts of many years have secured top ranking in corruption with bureaucrats as runner up, the report says. It is in astonishing.

During natural calamity caused by unprecedented flood of river Koshi, last year in Bihar, people preferred to go to the camps of RSS, Baba Ramdev and Asha Ram Bapoo for relief. Only 40% of electorates turned to exercise their right to franchise in recently concluded Loksabha polls. This clearly shows the apathy of the people for the prevailing system. It is not a good sign for the health of our democracy and MERA BHARAT MAHAN.

Our Men in Blue capable of retaining T20 crown

Our men in blue are quite capable of retaining the world twenty20 title. Last time Team India was not a favorite team. No one had expected the world title as the majority of team-members were inexperienced and the captain was also in learning stage. Now the scenario is completely changed. All the members of Team India have got good experience of T20 International matches. Except NZ, they have registered convincing victories over all the cricket playing giants. At present they are fully charged. Team India has good combination of bowling attack in both varieties - spin and pace. Harbhajan Singh is one of the best spinners of the world. Pragyan Ojha has developed a wonderful skill of spin bowling for T-20 matches. All cricket pundits have watched him in action in the second edition of IPL and in recent world cup tournament under progress. The critics are amazed with his miraculous performance. He is almost unplayable to most of the batsmen. We have two very good fast bowlers – Ishant Sharma and Zahir Khan. Ishant Sharma is always capable of breaking any settled partnership by his accurate slightly out of off stump fast delivery, where Zahir picking up early wickets with the help of his swinging yorker in his first spell with shining new ball. Yuvraj, Yusuf and Irfan are best all rounders.They have developed expertise in T-20 version especially. We have got good varieties in our attack as such.
The batting of our men in blue is also very impressive and has got a good depth. Gautam Gambhir and Rohit Sharma may be considered as the best successful opening pair of the world. Dhoni and Raina can exploit any bowling attack and accelerate the run rate with desired velocity, any time. Yuvraj Singh and Yusuf Pathan are above all. Their stay only for five avers at the batting crease may keep the opponents five million kilometers away from victory. Our tail in the form of Irfan, Harbhajan and Zahir is also reliable. Their eyes always remain on boundaries for hitting consecutive fours and sixes. Team has got good combination of offense and defense. Fielding of young blue men is also of world class. It is a balance team in all respects. In addition, Team India is lucky enough to have cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni as its captain whose intelligent moves on ground keep everyone remembering the moves of great Vishwanathan Anand on chess board. Had Virendra Sehwag been fit and part of blue men squad, the victory would have been beyond doubt. Though nothing can be predicted for T-20 matches, yet keeping in view the established talents and capabilities of our men in blue, one can confidently say that Team India will come off with flying colours. A cent percent commitment and a favour of luck, a little bit, are however required all the time

What happened to our system! In the country of Vikramaditya, the devil of corruption is taking the shape of lady monster SURSA . Ruling parties are busy in celebrating their unexpected victory and oppositions, in introspections. Judiciary has also started tasting apples with Adams. During tenure of late P Narasimha Rao as Prime Minister, an impeachment was processed in Parliament against sitting judge of Supreme Court, Mr. Cho Ramaswamy for his involvement in corruption and malpractices. He anyhow managed the blessings of the then PM and escaped narrowly. The proposal was turned down as it could not muster support of two third of MPs. Now Chief Justice of India has once again recommended the removal of a judge, Justice Nirmal yadav of Punjab & Haryana High Court on the charges established beyond doubt that she received money, mobile, land, whiskey and more from a private individual. Here also the Union Government is not allowing prosecution. If someone expects some fair deal from politicians, he may be called a day dreamer. Politicians after sincere efforts of many years have secured top ranking in corruption with bureaucrats as runner up in a recent survey report published by an independent international agency. Now judiciary is unveiled. Birds of the same feather flock together. Who will save this country?
