हे कृष्ण
बैठा था मै तुझे ही याद करने के लिए
दूध वाला, सब्जी वाला
याद आया गॉव का हलवाई
मगर तू याद न आया l
शहर की घुटन ,माँ का आँचल
याद आई दादी के आँगन की चटाई
मगर तू याद न आया l
पत्नी से हुई नोक झोक
याद आई बच्चो की पढ़ाई
मगर तू याद न आया l
कुछ जो जिन्दा है
जो चले गए याद आई उनकी परछाई
मगर तू याद न आया l
भूत से पछताया, भविष्य ने डराया
याद आई वर्तमान की कठिनाई
मगर तू याद न आया l
मगर तू याद न आया ll

An atheist and a little girl

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned 
to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike 
up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total 
stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God, 
or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.

"Okay," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask 
you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same 
stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns 
out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, 
thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which 
the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss 
God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know s**t?"

And then she went back to reading her book.(article is not mine, taken from somewhere)

TARUNI

Many of us do not believe in fate and destiny. But, child actor Taruni Sachdev's cruel demise is an example of destiny. 14-year-old Taruni's death has left the film fraternity as well as her loved ones in a state of shock. But, what's more surprising is Taruni's behaviour and phone messages before the crash.

When a leading daily spoke to Taruni's friends, they learnt few strange and shocking truths. One of Taruni's friends informed the daily that before leaving for Nepal trip, Taruni hugged all her friends and said to them, "I'm meeting you guys for the last time." Though it was a light-hearted joke, according to her classmates, Taruni had "never hugged her friends or sent them goodbye messages before leaving for any of her earlier trips."

Taruni's best friend Tanushkha Pillai gave us one more shocking information about the deceased. Just before boarding the flight, she messaged Tanushkha, jokingly asking what would happen if the plane crashed. Taruni's friends believe that their best friend's death was destined to happen.

AN ATHEIST IN THE WOODS

 An atheist was walking through the woods. 'What majestic trees!' 'What powerful rivers!' 'What beautiful animals!' He said to himself. As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant moment, the Atheist cried out: 'Oh my God!' Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent. As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky. 'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.' 'Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament?' 'Am I to count you as a believer?' The atheist looked directly into the light, and said: 'It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a believer now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a believer?' 'Very well', said the voice. The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed and the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & started singing....MAHA PRASADE GOVINDE.......(disclaimer-i am not the author of this article,it has been picked up from somewhere)

बेगाना

सारी उम्र उसे सजाया
तपती धूप
बारिस से बचाया
हंसाया ,रुलाया
जब भी रूठा
मन्नतों से मनाया
भगवान हे साक्षी
खुद से ज्यादा बहलाया
बिश्वास था मुझे
ये  मेरे साथ
हर पल रहा है
स्तब्ध हू देखकर.........
............वो चिता पर जल रहा है

दुःखालयमं

चेहरे पर हंसी

दिल रोता है

बनावटी है दुनिया

मायाजाल में उलझे

पग पग में पीड़ा

फिर भी

मन यही खोताहै

यह कोई नयी बात नहीं

जनम जनम की कहानी है

हर बार कान पकड़ता हूँ

रोते रोते मरता हूँ

आता हूँ फिर से

दो रोटी की तलाश में

सारा जीवन ढोता हूँ

सत्य पहचाने बिन

कोल्हू का बैल बन जाता हूँ

और फिर से

...

...

चेहरे पर हंसी

दिल रोता है

विवशता

विवशता
-----------

दिन रात
पापी
पेट भरता रहा
प्रसाद का कंद न खा सका
हर पल
माला
जपता रहा
मन का द्वन्द न भगा सका
माया के इस
महाजाल में
परमानन्द न पा सका
काम लोभ मद मोह को
अब तक
ठण्ड न दिला सका
बच्चे को
कृष्ण नाम दिया
स्वयं को
नन्द न बना सका
तुम मेरी
मै तेरा लिखा
भक्ति का इक
छंद न बना सका
हे प्रभु
ये कैसी विवशता
जिसका अब तक
अंत न आ सका

अंतिम इच्छा

अंतिम इच्छा
----------------

उस रात
खोया था जब मै अपने मे
श्रीहरी आये मेरे सपने मे
पूछा
वत्स......
इच्छा क्या है तुम्हारी ?
नासमझ था
सोचा
सोचकर बताऊंगा
जल्दबाजी मे
गलत चीज
पा जाऊंगा
बोला
थोडा समय दीजिये प्रभु
श्रीहरी बोले
तथास्तु..........
उनके थोड़े समय में
मेरे कई जीवन निकल गए
जब तक गलती का आभास हुआ
राह से पैर फिसल गए
जय हो श्रीला प्रभुपाद
चखाया कृष्ण नाम का स्वाद
अब फिर से मेरी कोशिश है
की जब
श्रीहरी आये मेरे सपने मे
पाए मुझे
हरिंनाम जपने मे

इक सीख

इक सीख
-----------

वेसे तो बहुत बार सुनी मैंने
महाभारत की कहानी
बढ़े बूढों के मुहं
दादा दादी की जुबानी
हमेशा इक सीख मिली
कौरव थे सो
पांडव थे पांच
फिर भी सत्य को
न आई आंच
इक और सीख मिली
जब सुनी
महाभारत की कहानी
प्रभुपाद की जुबानी
आत्मा है ऐक
जीवन कई हजार
करले कृष्ण को याद
हो जा
जन्म मृत्यु के पार

एक पुकार

एक पुकार
-------------
बारम्बार
एक पुकार ,
मे कौन ?
कहाँ से आया हू?
तू है कृष्णा का अंग ,
तू था उसी के संग ,
तूने किया कोई जब पाप ,
तुझे मिला तभी ये श्राप,
भोगने सजा यहाँ तू आया ,
फिर भी सत्य समझ न पाया,
हुआ मदमस्त मिली जो माया ,
साथ में सवस्थ सुकोमल काया,
कृष्णा को ही गया तू भूल ,
जो है दुनिया का मूल,
अरे ओ मूढ हुई ना देर,
कृष्ण नाम की माला फेर ,
वर्ना जन्मेगा बारम्बार ,
और करेगा यही पुकार ,
मे कौन ?
कहाँ से आया हू??????????????

haribol.!!!!!!!! well this wasn't a very familiar word to me in way back 1996.i was in a hostel and my room mate hap pend to be a crazy man as i thought of him then.crazy!!!!!!!!no smoking,no meat eating,no beer, its not the end of it... no onion garlic....well he was ready to spend hundred rupees for taxi just to have khichadi at a temple called Sri Sri Radhagopinath somewhere at chopatty...it sounded absolutely crazy to me.one fine day he said 'come with me,i m sure you will love it',reluctantly i followed him to the temple.to my surprise i saw every one including quite a few foreigners dancing and singing in temple,for me it was something new,i am basically from himalays(nainital) this is not very common there,sitting quietly, meditation this is what temple meant to me.after seeing all that drama first thing came to my mind was the movie" hare rama hare krishna".i pulled my friend back 'are they in to drugs? 'i asked quietly.he smiled to my horrer 'yes' was his answer but this is different it is called "HSD"Harinam Sankirtan Dhun he explained,it did not made much sense to me......days past.....then months together.........a long long pause on spiritual front...years passed ....it was now 2004,i am in a train coming from delhi to mumbai somewhere on the way a group of devotees entered in the same compartment,from their talks i came to know they were coming from vrindavan.two young ladies happen to sit in front of my seat.i was ready with cotton to plug my ears to save myself from ladies bla bla,but to my pleasant surprise they took out one photograph which i assume they had bought recently from vrindavan and started talking about it,it was only only two hours chat on one single photograph,content of which not known to me yet,ladies are ladies i thought.i was feeling uneasiness i was very keen to see that photograph, how can one talk for two hours on one single still photograph,a movie of three hours containing millions of still photographs still it will be difficult for me to talk more than ten minutes.i could not resist any more,with great hesitation i requested "can i have a look"they were more than happy,i looked at photo then at girls one by one again at photo and again at girls,i looked like lost it was a simple photo of radha and krishna.....crazy......crazy i thought,thank you i said,how can you talk so long on one photo?i asked,even a lifetime is less to talk about krishna was the quick reply,where do you stay? was the question for me,mumbai softly i replied,i was not in a mood for further conversation.they continued please visit our temple,quickly one girl took out one thin book name "resonance"to show me the address at the back cover.address looked familiar,is it near wilson college at chowpatty on first floor ...wooden flooring....i wanted to confirm,yes yes that's it you have come there before?they asked,i could see a real happiness on their face.i did not liked it i replied bluntly.my eyes were looking for TT,will it be possible to get a seat elsewhere i thought, i was not comfortable .they continued their chant 'please come to our temple,krishna is very merciful,it is not coincidence,he has some plans for you,please come' i tried to returned the book,please keep it was their answer.soon reached mumbai goodbye see you in the temple they said and parted ways.so many byes we do in life little did i knew that this bye is going to change my life forever.one Sunday i was free nothing to do much,let me go to temple i thought.next i was dancing and singing in temple,how come these girls were so sure about me that i will like it this time....i could not sleep that night.next day i went again,sure enough i was high on HSD.........THANKS TO ALL THESE PURE DEVOTEES OF LORD....GOD BLESS.....
