बाज़ीचा… Playground of Words

IMG_0004.PNG

बच्चा जब तक बोलना नहीं सीखता
उसके अंदर कितने शब्द क़ैद में रहते हैं
फड़फड़ाते रहते हैं.. लेकिन बाहर नहीं निकलते

फिर वो सीख लेता है
शब्दों के छींटें दुनिया के मुँह पर मारना
और डरी हुई दुनिया उसे सिखा देती है
सधी हुई भाषा और थोड़ा सा तमाशा

उम्र बढ़ती जाती है
और शब्द या तो पालतू हो जाते हैं
या फिर हथकड़ियाँ लगाकर
सलाखों के पीछे पहुँचा दिए जाते हैं

और इसके बाद..
चीखें आत्मा से गले तक पहुंचती हैं…
लेकिन गले से निकलती नहीं
अंदर ही अंदर गूंजती है

बस एक दरवाज़ा खोलना है किसी दिन
सारे शब्द, मैदान में बच्चों की तरह खेलने लगेंगे

International version

When a child doesn’t know how to speak
There are so many words trying to come out
But they never get bail from the jail of our processes
Child first learns to say anything fearlessly
then he starts unlearning that originality
And finally gets trapped into stale procedures

In true sense
Words are either tamed by procedures
Or they are handcuffed deep inside our heart
Our Soul shouts out loud
But nothing comes out
Bail is still awaited
Everybody wants to open the door someday
All those handcuffed words would start playing
on that lush green ground
