I observe and i observe!

I observe and i observe!
and i love it....
day before yesterday my mid semester one was over, means if i had dared to sleep i must have got night mares.So i engaged myself in chemistry of kajol and srk!
morining 6:30 i was in train, but it has got nothing to do with post. Rather i covered half of my journey sleeping, and another half in deep thoughts!
Those thoughts i wish to keep in reecord with me, coz it was all i felt life is, atleast Indian life is!
so this post is i observe...

The train stopped, at outer (very much expected from a passenger train, as it cant reach its destination before indain timings).
i looked out the window...and was surprized
"left hand side i could see all yellow and green fields, ready to be harvested, and right hand side it was all white... dull grey to be more precise,and just two trees without and green cover were just counting last days of their lives, " i just got first thought, these trees must be eager for the service of villagers nearby, next winters,and will try to survive till then.

then i gave a thought on contrast of views i was getting from two different windows of same compartment. very much expected from me, i had chosen right side window, barren land as a subject of my thoughts.

The train crawled then for next one minute , and then it was at normal speed. i was looking from right side window, and i had chosen my frame of observation also, between the two parallel rods of iron it seemed to me as if i was watching a video..
" life"

first scene was a man on bicylce and a girl following him, i assumed that she must be following him, coz she needs just two rupees to buy colours for holi, or she must be requesting for new skirt, as it was holi time.
But then i thought, she might be goin to primary school, and her father taking her, but this is something least expected from indain villages.

Another scene was green fields and a lady in red saree, working in those farms, i immediately got thought that she must be having her drunkard husband sitting at home,and she will be forced by fuel les chulas at home to go and work,as his son might be sick, or daughter might be coming along with her husband , to visit her.

Again my thoughts were influneced by next scence form my frame, it was really beautiful, two ladies were just walking and continuously talking, first thought i got was that they must be discussing the new blouse and saree which thy must have got from the families where they go to wash utensils, then i realised that if this had been situation i must have witnesed joy in their walks, but it seemed a bit gloomy, so again they mite be worried because it was holi time,and they will be expecting some local bank managers of their village,coming home and asking interest of money which they took as loan from him last holi, whn her husband got severe injury while cutting trees.

Next scene was a jeep, and two men standing with him, in the farms, i avoided that scene because all i was getting was very violent thoughts, And yes! i got someting to think upon as soon as i saw a lady with a boy (must be her son) ,of 10 to 12 years trying to work on fields, i gussed he will be her younger son,and elder one mite be in indain army , and this month money he send home was spent in immunization of his newly born daughter, and calcium tablets of his wife.

Then next seen was really cute i saw a builiding with two room ,and a banner "primary school"
that was government aided school, strength nearby 20 kids aged 8 -10..
all sitting outside in groups and discussing, not alphabets of any language, but they are very well blessed with local language, and they dont feel that they have any need to learn more, but till paanchavi class they could come to thsi buliding daily, and atlest get mid day meals every alternate day, to fill their empty bellies. I also thought that they being kids, also feel happy being there coz they are away from worries back at home, where father must be teliing him that you shuld go to hanuman temple in town next week tuesday, and get some money or atleast earn for youself...

As my train was approaching towards my city of nawabs , lucknow... the views in my frame became more urban,and i could not enjoy them
That is not real India, (this is something i personally believe,)
i had seen India where i wana work, where i wana live, and some or the other way be part of life of protagonists of my posts ,And DO SOMETHING!

and finally i am back home, eating sleeping...and talking as usual! :)

मैं देखता हूँ

श्यामल चादर , और उसपे ये चांदनी की नक्काशी .
मद्धम सी हवा , बावरा भवरा .
इतराता बादल चाँद को ओड़नी उढाता हुआ.
ऐसा समा देख किसे ना इश्क हो जाएगा .
व्याकुल मन और गंगा का तट ,
मद्धम स्वर , दूर पायल की छन छन.
कौन तेरा कान्हा न बनना चाहेगा.
पर इस सन्नाटे को चीरता , एक बावाली का विलाप.
तन धूमिल और मनन विचलित,
उसपर श्यामल चादर के केवल ढाक.
कौन सा कान्हा अब इस को अपनाएगा.
फिर सुनता हूँ मैं एक घनघोर नाद.
गंगा में तरंगें उठती हुई,पल भर में फिर था
गंगा का मद्धम स्वर हवा में व्याप्त
और सुबह की पहली किरण पड़ते ही मैंने देखा
संतुष्ट चील का झुण्ड गंगा तट पर कर रहा था वाद विवाद!
