बेहतर

रुई के राहों में उछालते कूदते कदम रखी सड़क पे,
सड़क की तप्ती गर्मी बोली:“रुई लपेट के.. हम चलते हुए क़दमों को गुमराह नहीं करते।”

समझा लिया था खुदको, के ज़िन्दगी रुई की सड़क नहीं..
ज़िन्दगी चाहिए तो ज़रूरत है गर्म कोयला जैसे सड़कों के भी।

रुई से सड़क, सड़क से चढ़ाई.. चलते रहे थे,
थकान और पसीना जैसे मेरे दोस्त ही बन गए थे।

इंसान मिलते गए, दोस्त बनते गए,
कुछ मेहमान बनके आए थे, चले भी गए,
और कुछ.. ज़िन्दगी बनके आए थे तो साथ ही रह गए।

साथ छूटते और जुड़ते जुड़ते हम चलते रहे,
आस लेके एक समय की.. जहा मेहनत के बल पे बेहतर समय खुदका खुद लाए ।

और, बेहतर के तमन्ना में आगे बढ़ते बढ़ते मेहनत और रब ने कब बेहतरीन का दरवाज़ा खोल दिया हैरानी से बस देखते रहे..
फ़िर, रब मुस्कुराए, “आगे बढ़ बेहतरीन को पकड़े रखना भी युद्ध ही है

English translation:

For Better”


Initiating with hop and jumps on soft cottony world
Stepped I, to the real roads in life.
Roads, heated like burning coals speaks up: “We don’t distract peddlers by covering in sweet cottony lies.”

Convinced myself, “Life’s always not that cottony soft”
If the want is of a real life, burning coals as the road is also a must.

From the cottony world to roads of burning coals , from those roads to unknown hilly tours ,
All I did was, just kept going..
Stress and sweat, as if were now my best friends accompanying.

People kept joining, and turned to friends.
Some came like visitors..and went away exactly like them
And a few, came as a part of life.. and simply never went back.

Amidst being joined and being left by some.. I just kept moving,
With a wish that, I’ll embrace a time, where the time will be changed on my hardwork and light.

Then, with a wish for a bit better I kept moving.. and, when I looked up, saw surprisingly..
almighty embraced me not with better but it was the best for me waiting.
And Lord said with smile, “Keep going, holding the best always isn’t like a lil child playing.”

    जिंदगी में “बेहतर” की आशा रखना, हमारी गति को बनाएं रखता है। हम रूकते या थकते नहीं हैं।

    लोग आएंगे और जाएंगे भी। हमें उन्हें संवाद कायम करना और परखना सीखना होगा।

    अनपढ़ को पढ़ना, लिखना और बोलना सीखा दे तो उसके जीने की राह आसान हो जाएगी। मेहनत हो, लेकिन अक्ल का भी खुब प्रयोग हो।

    धूप में रगड़ते-रगड़ते पैर कठोर हो जाते हैं। फिर कांटा चुभने फर भी आसानी से उफ्फ न निकलें।

    बेहतरी की इस पहल में अगर सिध्दांतों और मूल्यों को भी शामिल कर दिया जाय तो ऐसा जीवन मानवजाति के लिए उत्कृष्ट उदाहरण बनेगा।
