रिहाई...



मेरी तक़दीर को कर क़ैद 
सीमाओं में, कहाँ गए,
मुझे भूल लक्ष्मण मेरे दोस्त?

राम तो क्यों देखेंगे भला
मुझ अमर्यादित की तरफ,

रावण ही कोई   जाता
मेरी रिहाई का सबब बन कर!

  1. भ्रमित मत हो सीते...रावण कहाँ आज़ाद रखने वाला है....कभी कभी कुछ देर की गुलामी में भलाई छुपी होती है...

  3. Ravan ka kya hai woh to rihai kara dega... Par uske baad tumhe bhi ravan banana hoga ...

    Muskil nahin yeh aasan hai bahut ... lekin uske liye tumhare andar ke Ram ko Marna hoga ...

  4. The life states of ram and ravan are present in all entities including the one who seeks a way out, it is what we call upon that determines who will show us the way. The play of the divine and the devilish is but essential for the preservation of the illusion of creation. Enjoyed the thought, Amit.

    1. Philosophically and principally what you have said is the essence of the truth, Subho, but the paradox of the poet's tragedy is that he is so fed up of slavery and restrictions that he wants to be freed at any cost i.e. even by an evil source!
      Thank you!

  6. Oh,a truly heartbreaking piece. So, this new Sita is craving for Ravana to get freed...? Sigh...such is life, Amit!

  7. राम लक्ष्मण रावण तीनो
    अब साथ साथ हैं आते
    आयेगा कोई ना कोई
    देखो किसको हैं भेज पाते
    चर्चा हो रही है तीनों में
    तुम जाओ तुम जाओ
    तुम क्यों नहीं चले जाते !

  9. searched all hindi to english dictionaries for the meaning of 'अमर्यादित.'

    1. Aww Deb, I'm sorry for the hassle caused, and thank you for your interest and time. In fact the poet is satirically saying that he, being a worthless person will not even be noticed by the Virtuous Lord Ram. The word 'अमर्यादित' has been used to accentuate the plight and contrast between the poet and Lord Ram, as the latter is known as 'मर्यादा पुरुषोत्तम', meaning the most virtuous and upright of all men.
      I most humbly do not deserve the last line of your comment, but am more than pleased to have wonderful readers like you! Thanks again for your time:)

    1. It's all with your blessings Pattu di..I know you're only teasing, you can't be jealous:)
      No, I can't write that many regularly, some are old ones and some are just pictures:):)
      'bhaiyya' and 'bhai' both are good enough:)
