दुआ

हे मेरे भगवान् 
कैसा किया इस साल 
तुमने ये काम...

हमें तो मार डाला गर्मी में 
और पहाड़ों पर 
मचाया कोहराम

बारिश आती नहीं,
दुआ भी की जाती नहीं 

डर लगता है 
कि जो बूँदें 
मुझे जिलायेंगी 
उन्हें कितना और सतायेंगी 
जो रहते हैं 
मुझसे कुछ मोड़ दूर 
उन ख़ूबसूरत पहाड़ों पर 

जाने दो 
मैं सह लूँगा गर्मी का दर्द 
पर वहाँ मत करना और उपद्रव !

Translation:
Oh my God
what kind of benevolence
this year You showed!

We are dying in
heat sweltering
and Your game
in mountains is devastating...

Rain it doesn’t
and even pray I can’t (for it)

Afraid that the drops
cool me which
will give them despair
who live just a few turns away
in those beautiful mountains 

Forget it hence
scorching heat shall I bear
but kindly
no more destruction there!

  10. We deserved this punishment. There entire Mountain was spoiled by the greedy brainwaves of milking it in the name of religion tourism. And Oh My god(OMG) was also sold because a darshan or puja would cost 5000 for paying bribe to agents otherwise stay tuned in the long Que and remain there for the whole night.

    As you said in the last poem-we ourselves have brought this upon us.

  15. It was heart weeping to see what happened in uttaranchal this year. that trauma still haunts the whole nation. a very concernful post from you Amit ji. and your words very aptly brings out the pain of a lamenting heart which is not happy with the predisposition of the almighty above.
    good post Amit ji!

  26. आपकी इस सोच से मैं बहुत प्रभावित हुई। बहुत कम होंगे जो दूसरों के जीवन को अपने सुखों से पहले आँकते हैं। वैसे गर्मी से त्रस्त तो फ़िलहाल हम सब हैं, पर आपकी यह कविता पढ़ कर मैं दुवा करूंगी की मुझे राहत किसी और क दुख के बदले कतई न मिले। :)
