Woh Do Ped

A simple, beautiful and hearwrenching poem I came across.. presents an essential fact of this era,  which has failed to find its way through humanity… its heart and mind…

Hope our next generation would never have to write anything like this one..
Woh Do Ped…
Barso pahle
abdul chacha ke abba ne
mere ghar ke kareeb
ek neem ka beej gaaDa tha
uske kuch dino baad
dadaji ne bhi theek wahin
aam ki guThlee fenki thi
barsat ke dino me 
dono beej, poudhe ban gaye the..!!!
kahte he ki
abdul chacha or pitaaji
un poudho ko paani seenchte gaye
jab tak poudhe jawaan na ho gaye
bachpan me, rahman or mein bhi
usee ki chhanv me khelte the..!!
basti waale bhi , unhi peDo se,
keriyaa toDte the or nimboli bhi..
hindu aurate tyoharo me un peDo ko 
pujati thi.. to
neem hakeem bhi wahin aate the..!!
neem ke peD ki ek Daal, 
mere chhat tak aati thi
kabhi-kabhi usi Daal ke sahare
mein or rahman ek dusre ki chhat par,
aaya-jaya karte the…
Ek roz ek netaaji ka kafila
hamari basti se guzara tha
unake prachar-rath par lage jhanDe
neem ki Daal se aTak rahe the,
so Daal kaat di gayi…..!!!
abdul chacha or hamare bhi jazbaat juDe the,
neem ke peD se…
magar kuch roz baad
aam ke paD ki Daaliya bhi kaaT di gayi…
keriyaan bhikhari paDi thi..
laasho ki tarha, puri basti me…
ab rahman bhi chhat par
kahan aata tha..
Daal jo kaT chuki thi….
ek roz
subah-subah
basti me matam ka mahoul tha
abdul chacha ki laash laTak rahi thi,
neem ke peD se…
sab log moujood the wahan,
magar netaji nazar nahi aa rahe the,
basti jalne lagi thi……!!!!!!!
Barso baad bhi….
woh dono peD,
wahin moujood hein..
us ujaaDi basti me….!!!
neem ka peD
shayad abdul chacha jeisa lag raha tha
buDha, TuTa hua sa
or aam ka paD
mere dadaji jeisa,
bilkul laachar…!!!!!
