चिंगारी कोई भड़के: आप के अपने ही कभी सबसे बड़े शत्रु साबित होते है!!!

दुःख क्या प्रेम को अमर बनाता  है ?

दुःख क्या प्रेम को अमर बनाता है ?

ये गीत मुझे बेहद  पसंद है इसलिए क्योकि जीवन के इस कटु सच्चाई का उल्लेख हुआ है कि आप के अपने ही कभी सबसे बड़े शत्रु साबित होते है. इनसे लड़ना इसलिए कठिन है क्योकि दुश्मनी का डंक अपनत्व के आवरण में ढका होता है. किसी को बनाने में तो ये काम आते ही है पर किसी को गिराने में यही अपने काम आते है.  मीर जाफर  सरीखे लोग ना हो तो किसी राष्ट्र को जीतना इतना आसान नहीं!!  

खैर इस गीत को बनाने में किशोर, पंचम दा और आनंद बक्षी का अहम रोल है.  आर ड़ी बर्मन  इस तोहमत को हमेशा झेलते रहे कि पाश्चात्य संगीत को उन्होंने कापी किया.  आंधी हो या अमर प्रेम यही कुछ एक दो फिल्मे रही है जिनमे इन्होने शास्त्रीय  संगीत पे आधारित अमर गीत दिए और अपने आलाचको को ये अच्छी तरह समझा दिया कि उनकी आलोचना कितनी सतही है.  

सयोंग से कल रोमांस की लहर को जन्म देने वाले राजेश खन्ना का जन्मदिन भी था. भारतीय रजत पटल पे प्रकटे इस पहले सुपर स्टार को मेरी तरफ से हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ.  कोई आश्चर्य नहीं कि अपने अभिनय से इन्होने “अमर प्रेम”  को अपने कैरियर में एक माईलस्टोन का दर्जा प्रदान किया.

 

चिंगारी कोई भड़के, तो सावन उसे बुझाये
सावन जो अगन लगाये, उसे कौन बुझाये,
ओ… उसे कौन बुझाये

पतझड़ जो बाग उजाड़े, वो बाग बहार खिलाये
जो बाग बहार में उजड़े, उसे कौन खिलाये
ओ… उसे कौन खिलाये

हमसे मत पूछो कैसे, मंदिर टूटा सपनों का
हमसे मत पूछो कैसे, मंदिर टूटा सपनों का
लोगों की बात नहीं है, ये किस्सा है अपनों का
कोई दुश्मन ठेस लगाये, तो मीत जिया बहलाये
मन मीत जो घाव लगाये, उसे कौन मिटाये

न जाने क्या हो जाता, जाने हम क्या कर जाते
न जाने क्या हो जाता, जाने हम क्या कर जाते
पीते हैं तो ज़िन्दा हैं, न पीते तो मर जाते
दुनिया जो प्यासा रखे, तो मदिरा प्यास बुझाये
मदिरा जो प्यास लगाये, उसे कौन बुझाये
ओ… उसे कौन बुझाये

माना तूफ़ाँ के आगे, नहीं चलता ज़ोर किसीका
माना तूफ़ाँ के आगे, नहीं चलता ज़ोर किसीका
मौजों का दोष नहीं है, ये दोष है और किसी का
मजधार में नैया डोले, तो माझी पार लगाये
माझी जो नाव डुबोये, उसे कौन बचाये
ओ… उसे कौन बचाये

चिंगारी …

Meeting With Joy: Celebrating Christmas At Allahabad On Chilly Christmas Night!!

Meeting With Joy: Celebrating Christmas At Allahabad On Chilly Christmas Night!!

On this December 25 when most of the citizens were shivering inside their quilts, some unorthodox souls likes us decided to move on the streets of Allahabad. The glory and beauty of Allahabad on Christmas night was at its peak. Sadly, we were not roaming on the streets with good camera!! However, the brand new Samsung Touch Screen Phone worked wonders for us. We managed to have some good pictures.

It would be interesting to state that Church was bustling with activity as sea of people, mostly Hindu guys and gals, came to gather there. Most of them present there were casual visitors interested less in what’s going inside the Church. They were the ones making Sunday a perfect holiday. The hawkers had gathered around the church, selling all sorts of eatables. After all, girlfriends are die heard lovers of ice cream and fast food. Any occasion activates their taste buds!!

One of the young boys who seemed to be regular visitor while listening to the stories of birth of Christ said , ” Oh! The same old tales!! I have heard them many times ( sigh of boredom quite emanant ) . ” I wasn’t surprised to see huge number of beggars that have also managed to find place just near the entrance. It appears that celebrations not only pleases the deity but also the beggars!!

I should also let readers become aware of the history of this extraordinarily beautiful monument of my city which constitutes its pride. The All Saints Cathedral was brought into existence more than a century ago by Sir William Emerson. Mr Emerson – a famous architect in the Raj Era- attained popularity for his exceptional designing of the Victoria Memorial, Calcutta. In Allahabad, this Church is also known as Patthar Girja. The cathedral has some exceptional stained glass panels having a marble altar involving intricate inlay work. No wonder it’s one of the finest Anglican Cathedrals in Asia.

The experts treat it as a finest Gothic cathedral having unique balustrades, gargoyles and stained glass windows. Some of are opinion that it bears close resemblance with eastern end of Canterbury Cathedral. The Central Panel that’s indicative of crucification has images of Virgin Mary, St. John, St. Matthew, St. Mark and St. Luke, to name a few. The visitors can easily locate this Church as it lies opposite to the Allahabad Railway Station.

In the end I come to remember words of one my friends closest to my heart. The words made their presence felt after taking note of huge Hindu crowd at the Church: ” It appears that Hindus exhibit the Catholic instincts better than the Christians.”

Well, my dear friend, Indian culture is exhibiting secular spirit since time immemorial. It has always loved, respected and adored foreign traditions, customs and beliefs. It’s another thing that despite exhibiting such tolerance level misguided souls from other religions leave no opportunity to create mess in this nation.

Psalms 71:5

For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.
