माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है.

माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है
मेरी या तेरी या फिर किसी और की
कैसे माँ से भिन्न भला माँ हो सकती है
सोलह आने सच है - माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है

जन्म-काल से पहले के उन नौ मासों में
बंधन माँ से जुडे हमारे कई बरसों के
काटे नही कटते, नही टूटते किसी तरह से
कहता है दिल - माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है

माँ, तुम राजाओं की माँ
तुम पीर-फ़कीरों की भी माँ
कैसे चलता जग बिन माँ के
कुछ झूठ नही कि - माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है

माँ, आज तुम्हारे जाने की बेला आई
मन विह्वल है, भावुक है मेरा विचलित है
कल किसे कहूंगा जाकर माँ सपने अपने
यह मान लिया कि - माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है

दुख-संकट में, बचपन में, जीवन के यौवन पर
वह एक सहारा सदा तुम्हारा क्या कम था
भीषण दुख की अग्नि में अब जलता है मन
छूट गया है साथ कि - माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है

अब कौन सुनेगा जग में वह मेरे सपने
तुम कहां चली माँ छॊड हमें हम थे अपने
कहीं दिया बुझ गया कोई तुम्हारे जाने से
अंधकार में डूबा मन कि - माँ तो आखिर माँ होती है ।

Amitabh Bachchan - Initial Comments on day 179

Respected Brother,
Sadar Charan Sparsh,
Now that you lost a couple of essentials in a dream actually put you in different hue bespeaks how humane you are, how concerned and how very natural to the reactions that a man could undergo as a part of some actions even if only in a dream.

That you dream and have a vision for collective upliftment and awakening of India to a new future, so that our beloved country could prosper from ignominity to liberty, despite the existence of individual brilliance amongst us we may fail but not branded a failure as a country!

A very apt and thoughtful closing of your remarks makes me believe that you could indeed be the person who could drift us into positivity, towards development, into peace, harmony and brotherhood.

Individual achievement will bring laurels, collective achievement shall make a great country.
And now to Subhash, I agree with your observation of the current plight of the country yet I fear if one of our political leaders could really bring about the desired change! brother does not have to join politics to get constructively involved in nation building exercise. He would need to have support of not one or two but millions of like minded men (women!), to imbibe the spirit of a culturally rich and meaningful existence to compose what we could then call glorious India.
We all know that we are one country but when it comes to show true loyalties we all tend to divide ourselves into divisions that we have created for our own subversive ends! (Please Subhahs do not take these comments as averse to your thinking, I love you the most on the blog, sorry dear Rs and the rest, he is ahead of all of you for his highly meaningful existence on this blog!).

We would need to change some of the definitions of what is pure and devoid of perversions . No doubt, it is all easily said than could be achieved, yet if we do not step forward how could we fail and try again and emerge stronger and not get relegated into a failure as a country! Brother, I liked your quotes on fail and failure though the root word is same what a vast difference exists in the proper interpretation of the verb and the noun. Well said!

So do we really have to search for someone that you have epitomised in your words!

Why we should not believe that indeed there is one man in Amitabh Bachchan who stands tall among all our dissuading and dividing acts as indians, someone whose presence is felt across from Kashmir to Kanyakumari ( I did not want to involve the global image as we are presently looklinng at the future of India!), someone who is brilliant in all his presentations be it a movie, a TV serial (ads) and most importantly this blog!

The way you can intermingle and influence Indians, indeed a very few would match your qualities and available talent, I agree with Subhash that if you backtrack who else could we look upon! Pachauris, Kapil Devs and Rest may have a role but the lead is to be provided by someone who is all pervasive into the walks and talks of matter related to India. Someone who is known to a large databse of people of this country, someone who could speak his mind clearly, someone who is forgiving and forthright, someone who is not self-centred yet cares for his self- respect, someone who takes pride in being Indian and above all someone who is able to relate to fellow human beings in the most distinct and appropriate ways. And the most capable name that comes immediately to one's mind is - Amitabh Bachchan!
You may feel that I am trying to be a sycophant to achieve some sort of gains, if you do feel that way, you would be wrong brother, I know one thing, I have not much inclination of doing chamchagiri! of anyone including someone of your stature. I say all these for you here because I know that even Lord Hanuman was to be reminded of his superpowers to be able to achieve something. You like us are born into tough times where we seem to forget the value of collective actions. Your abilities are rich and abundant, they can definitley bind us into a new Avtar as a country.

If you still do not take upon the most challenging role in your life of leading the masses to peace harmony and brotherhood that will be the biggest fear of your life bigger than what you described in your dream. I wish you all the success in generating the work force for the proper embodiment of thoughts and acts that should help us lead better lives. If individuals improve India shall improve too!

Here I would make a simple request on strength of collectivity that we all learn to save these three commodities:

1. Water ( 70 pervcent of our body is made up of it and so also is the 70 percent of this earth!). No wonder that we must ttreat water as one of the Gods!

2. Energy : Energy can niether be created nor destoyed. It can only be transformed from one form to another. if we could maximise the useful conversion of our available resources and address the energy problem collectively we shall all have enough electricity to meet our present needs!

3. Food : Essentially we all live to eat and only a few eat to live! If we could change the balance in the other direction I personally feel that most of our problems regarding nutrition or malnutrition would be kept at bay!

I think I must take leave of you now. I remembered you several times yesterday on my one day program to Pune to attend one of my nieces engagement ceremony there! I also discussed you with my sister Rajyashree( London), who was also here for couple of days for some reception. You are always in my thoughts all the time even if I am not writing here. I wish you do read today’s blog atleast two times to find some role for yourself a beginning could be made with enaction of this role in reel life before taking it up on the real life!

All the Best
Your slef-proclaimed younger brother

Comments on Amitabh Bachchan's blog - Day 179

Respected Brother
& Fellow Bloggers

I am here for the second time in such a short span. I would like to restate my old gesture on account of cross-referrals!. There are several thousands who are reading than writing here, they too are part of this blog as equally or more dominantly. It would be wise to say few words for just thosee readers! I today wish to acknowledge my debt for getting a readership on my thoughts for the sake of writing on brother's blog. A true reward for anyone who has chosen to write here. I am afraid, it is not all the time possible for me to include or even read everyone's comments, yet I love several peopl on this blog many who I might not have ever mentioned in my own comments.

I take a brief moment to tell Dr. Masooda for his beautiful presentation on if you love someone... It was one good piece today that I found quite interesting!

I have also read comments from Reshmi and Subhash and Reeham, I believe sometimes I do make place priorities of one over the other! I am wrong as well as right about some of the fellow bloggers, Yet Subhash despite being the best is not the only one I love, I have a beautiful world of R's on the blog.
I must add here that it s ot always that I get time t read commnets by everyone I know here! Please forgive me for my poor acknowledging skills, I had tried to detatch myself and dissuade from the blog on nay occasions but for the brother and for these fellow bloggers I am not able to convert my thoughts into action.

Your love brings me back here unconditionally, I am human enough to get a mention in other peoples comments yet I know I am not disturbed if Reshmi or Rose or even Reeham someday sometimes miss out on me!

Here I would try to rectify some mistakes from comments made earlier today. It should not have been ... pure and unputrified perversions, perversions are always putrified! I probably got lost into my thoughts I hope brother and others would ignore and make some meanings out of my comments. Please excuse me, yet I would love that brother does read the comments at 188 by me! There were some typos (.. ttreat looklling etc.).

If I were to remember everyone here and on Facebook I will need the help of database supoort and assign a lot of my time to it. Please everyone known and unknown, reader or contributor I wish that each one of you succeed in life even if you fail once or more times yet never are termed a failure on any front!

Best Wishes

PS Brother and dear friends on the blog, I would be leaving for Delhi for Amrit's Diwali vacations tomorrow. I may bot be able to be amongst you during this period. Happy and prosperous Diwali to all of you and I say this in advance that no one gets a feeling that I have left the blog for good! Take care of the events on the blog! Brother, I have started reading second part of the Autobiography of Dr. Bachchan - Needd kA Nirmaan Phir.. it was interesting that it stared with 16th November of 1936!(Amrit's Birthday!) albeit it had a sorrowful beginning with the death of Shyama ji! I haven't got my hands on to first part Kya Bhoolun Kya Yaad Karoon! It seems one of my sister-in-law in Delhi has all the four volumes! I hope to be with another Bachchan - Dr. Harivanshrai Bachchan for next 10 days or so! I plan to write of some interesting findings over the autobiography of octogenerian poet some day! His prose too has equally binding strength as his poetry! Some day I shall also tell you of the poem Gadhya - Padhya where I have emphasised the importance of writing rather than writing in prose or in poetic form!
