अक्सर – एक कविता – प्रपठन

इस कविता को मैनें कई साल पहले लिखा था। ठीक तरह तो याद नहीं मगर उस वक़्त घर छोड़ कर जाने का वक़्त था शायद। वो पहर आज भी मेरे ज़हन में हैं, की जिसकी धूप में सुखापन था, हवाएं रुख बदल रही हो, , और अंदर से एक चीख़ निकल रही हो की ‘अक्सर’ जिंदगी में एक पल आने वाला होता हैं जो सब कुछ बदल कर रख देता हैं।

तब तक हमेशा से मुझे चलना पसंद था, मगर जिंदगी मुझे ठहरना सिखा रही थी। इसीलिए मैं आज भी ठहरा हूँ, वही उसी धूप के नीचे।

अक्सर बातों ही बातों ने कुछ बातें बिगाड़ दी
तो अक्सर दोनों के बीच की खामोशियों ने बातें संवार दी।

अक्सर ख्यालों में आने वाले हकीकत हो गए
तो अक्सर हकीकत में रहने वाले आँखों से ओझल हो गए।

अक्सर बुलंदियों की चाह में रिश्तों की कीमत खो दी मैंने
तो अक्सर रिश्तों की आड़ में बुलंदियाँ हासिल कर ली मैंने।

अक्सर दिल में आयी बात होंठों पर नहीं आ पाती
तो अक्सर होंठों पर आयी बातें दिल को चुभ जाती।

अक्सर खूबसूरती ने उनकी हमें ख़ाक कर दिया
तो अक्सर चाहत ने उनकी हमें बेबाक कर दिया।

अक्सर जीती हुई बाजी हाथों से खोयी है
तो अक्सर अपनी हार से मैंने उनकी खुशियाँ पिरोयी हैं ।

  1. A very good morning Sumit!
    You know as always I read it raat mai hi, but due to low internet speed couldn’t hear the audio and abhi I have good speed toh I don’t have my earphones around. I am gonna hear it soon.

    But this poem my God is so beautiful. You’re a genius Man, you can write Hindi also so well haa!

    It does portray all raw emotions of someone who has to leave home.
    I can understand how difficult it must have got when you first decide to leave the place where you are born and brought up.

    Missing home?

    1. Good morning, Rashmi!

      Thank you for your lovely words. But the essence is not in the words, I would wait for you to listen to the recital.

      Also, I’m not missing home as you know I don’t really remember things. But I do remember how I must have felt while writing this poem. Often, we feel this way.

      1. You know what happened, while I was writing a comment on your blog, principal stood right behind me and I did not notice her.
        She just gave me a look and I was like exam is going on…
        I was so lost in commenting I did not notice her.

        I just came back and I have earphones around I’ll just listen and revert.
        I am excited for same. See you!

      2. I was so scared at first but then I was like why should I be scared, we were free that time. Exams are being conducted on their own. I cannot stare the screen for 30 min. For no reason. Better I do something.

        She too knew I wasn’t bound by any work that time. I was free only

      1. You tell me, whichever is more convenient for you.

        Or you can simply go to my profile, and find them yourself. I don’t want to limit you by sharing what I feel would be good for you to listen. You go and decide yourself.

      2. I’d want to read though. I saw you had one from Murakami. I love reading Murakami. Somewhere i feel like i can reach to his mind as well, like whatever he had thought while writing.

      3. Damn! He’s crazy. I’ve been a crazy reader of his work. Did you see how he depicts sex? Every time he makes you think about everything happening on the bed.

        His surrealism is damn good. He’d let you talk to the cats, he’d run and tell you what inspired him to write. He’d talk about bookstores and premature sex. He’s a mystery, Shree.

        I read his trilogy of 1300 pages book in 10 days of time last year. He’s just crazy. Murakami is one of my favorite authors.

      4. Mine too. Though i havent read all of his, i really like the way he expresses and instills things in the reader’s mind. I read Norwegian wood as his first, and the way he had explained the scenario got me crazy.

        I was like, he is so good at it. It is just a paragraph from this huge novel and oh my god all paragraphs like this?

      5. I’ve been a great fan of Murakami. He reflects my thoughts when I read them, what I write about sex, our understanding of observation matches almost every time.

        *Reflects my thoughts* even i used to synchronize with him. Damn.

      6. Hahah! Isn’t it great to know?

        BTW, aren’t we discovering ourselves as if both of us are reading the pages of our likes, dislikes, and comparing it for how they vibe together?

      7. Also, just to make you believe- I don’t just read him by flipping pages, rather I make sure to highlight, put up a note, and write my stuff on it while exploring his work.

      8. What if I tell you there’s a beautiful app which doesn’t require such hectic procedures and it also allows you to highlight, keep a note, and comes with an in-built dictionary with millions of free books.
