Boiling Ocean – Poem on 26/11 Mumbai Attacks Telecasted in DNA

Boiling Ocean is a Poem on 26/11 Mumbai Attacks, Telecasted in 2014 in DNA (Daily News & Analysis) which is India’s Most Loved News Show. (Weekdays & Saturday 9 Pm on Zee News)

Now my Special Connection with this poem is that, it Merged DNA of my two identities. One is Poet & other is TV Journalist. I must mention that Sudhir Chaudhary Sir selected this poem on his initiative after listening and very gracefully presented it as a part of DNA.
Watch this visual poem with introduction by Sudhir Sir.


जब दो जोड़ा आंखें.. सपने बुन रही थीं..
समंदर चुप था
‘चिल्लर’ की भूख,
मवाली का दबदबा
दारू की मस्ती
रिश्वतखोर ख़ाकी
बेईमान टोपी
सब देखता था समंदर
पर चुप रहता था

लेकिन बीती रात
समंदर ने सुनी
एक शहर की ख़ामोशी
देखी कैमरों की भीड़
चिकने चुपड़े लोग
सिर के बजाय मुंह ढकती टोपियां
और देखा
जलता हुआ एक सुर्ख फूल
वहीं किनारे पर
गोलियों से उधड़े मन
बयान दे रहे थे
और
चुपचाप सबकुछ सुनने वाला
समंदर उबल रहा था
