I offer my obeisance to you Rev. Sri Om Swamiji🙏🕉

 

Sharing bit of my childhood memories , a time when every year I used to travel to my granny’s place with my parents, and as always my Mother used to give us ( the three kids ) classes, as to how to be good and decent, without putting up  any fret expression on the face, even if we did not like something at Nani’s place.  Though it would be a delight holiday for us, esp going to the open fields, the yummy desi food of the mud chullha (Oven) and immense love with bit of Nani’s training to light the chullha ( which I could never do, but had to sit and try, cauz Mom had trained us, never to say ‘No”).  Have to mention about both my Mom and esp Naaniji, the amount of patience they had , not just to cook food, but put all their heart and soul into it, be it a few or large  number of members. This too I feel is sheer Sadhnaa, for to feed with love is adding Divine energy to the food cooked and  served. 

I have written this in hindi, with english wordings of the same…hopefully someday I shall be able to give the translation of my poems or writings in both languages.


Maa aur Naani ka pyaar…

Nanhi pariyon si kahaani si…
Kuch bhooli bisari si meri yaadein thi…
Aaj mere man mein phir kuch khayal aayaa
Ek guzara bachpan yaad aayaa…

Maa ke aanchal se youn lipatna simatna..
Jaise duniya se hai lukna chipna..
Uski goud mein sar rak kar..
Ungliyon ka baalon ko youn sehlanaa…
Waqt kaise youn hi guzar gayaa..
Lagta hai sab kuch abhi huaa..
Aaj mere man mein ek khyaal aayaa..
Ek guzaraa bachpan yaad aayaa…

Har baat pe hansi bikharti thi…
Ghar ke aangan mein ek bheeni kushboo thi…
Woh sang baith kar hansana gaana..
Roti ke waqt sabka shaamil honaa..
Bahut kushnumaa sa ek mauhaal  tha..
Aaj mere man mein ek khayal aayaa..
Ek guzara bachpan yaad aayaa…

Chutti mein Nani ke pind jaanaa..
Lehlahate khaliyaano se youn guzaranaa…
Woh sarson ke keithon ka peela rang bikhernaa..
Mitti ki saundhi kushboo ka youn mehknaa..
Un kacchey raaston mein ek sukoon deti aawaaz thi..
Dil ko aaraam deti ek alag si mithaas thi…
Aaj mere mun mein ek khayaal aayaa..
Ik guzaraa bachpan yaad aayaa…

Woh chuley pe bantey saag ka swaad…
Woh kheer ka kad kad ke huyaa rang laal…
Woh makki di roti woh maa ki daal…
In sab mein tha Naani ka chipaa pyaar…
Woh muthi se youn pyaaz todnaa..
Ek peetal ki thaali mein khaanaa parosanaa…
Pet bhar bhi jaayee, ji bharta nahi thaa…
Us khaaney ke swaad ka jahaan mein mol nahin thaa..
Dil aaj bhi un lamhon ko dhoondta hai…
Aaj mere mun mein ek khaayal aaya ..
Ek guzaraa bachpan yaad aayaa…

Raat ko aangan mein chaarpai ko ..
ek makhmali safed chaadar se youn dhakna…
Safed si hi machardaani ka us chaarpaai se lipatnaa…
Khuley aasmaan ke neeche aankhon kaa
chaand se youn baatein karnaa…
Thandi aur sukoon deti hawaa kaa
Kanoo mein youn gudgudi karna…
Suhaane se pyaare se neend ke woh lamhein…
Aaj bhi mujhko thandak detein hain..
Kyuon guzar gayein hain bityaa woh kuch pal…
Jo ab bhi mere man ko chootein hain..
Aaj mere mun mein ek khayaal aaya..
Ek guzaraa bachpan yaad aayaa…

Naani aur Maa kaa dulaar..jisey aaj bhi saansein yaad karti hain…..

 

Dil ki dhadkan mein basi ek saans rehti hai
Mere aangan mein sadaa ek aawaz rehti hai…
Bhool kar bhi jisey hum bhool naa paayein
Zindagi mein unhein paane ki aas rehti hai….
