Story on Save Environment in Hindi


रौनक की समझदारी 
(बालहंस में प्रकाशित)

आज रौनक के स्कूल की छुट्टी थी। उसने मम्मी से पूछा, ‘मम्मी मैं गौरव के यहाँ खेलने जाऊं?’

‘हाँ बेटा जाओ, पर अँधेरा होने से पहले लौट आना।’ मम्मी ने कहा।

‘ठीक है मम्मी मैं समय पर आ जाऊंगा।’ यह कहकर रौनक गौरव के घर की ओर चल पड़ा।

थोड़ी दूर चलने पर उसने देखा दीनू काका एक हरे-भरे पेड़ को काट रहे थे। रौनक रुका और बोला, ‘दीनू काका, आप इस पेड़ को क्यों काट रहे हो? ऊपर तो चिड़िया का घोंसला भी है। आप पेड़ को काटोगे तो उसका घर भी उजड़ जायेगा। मेरी टीचर कहती है कि हमें हरे-भरे पेड़ों को नहीं काटना चाहिए और जीवों पर भी दया करनी चाहिए।’

नन्हें से रौनक की समझदारी भरी बाते सुनकर दीनू काका के हाथ रुक गए और वे बोले, ‘बेटा तुम बिल्कुल सही कहते हो। मुझ अनपढ़ को पाप करने से बचा लिया तुमने।’ यह कहकर दीनू काका सूखी लकड़िया ढूंढने निकल पड़े।

रौनक कुछ और आगे चला तो उसने देखा पानी की एक टंकी के पास रजनी मौसी कपड़े धो रही थी। नल खुला था और नीचे रखी बाल्टी भर चुकी थी और बहुत सारा पानी बहकर सड़क पर आ रहा था।

‘रजनी मौसी जल तो जीवन है। अगर ये ही नहीं रहा तो हम पीयेंगे क्या? मेरी टीचर कहती है कि हमें व्यर्थ पानी नहीं बहाना चाहिए।’ रौनक ने कहा।

‘तू ठीक कहता है बेटा! आगे से मैं ख्याल रखूंगी।’ नल को बंद करते हुए रजनी मौसी ने कहा।

रौनक कुछ और दूरी तक चला तो उसने देखा शिल्पा दीदी घर की सफाई से निकला कचरा सड़क पर फेंक रही थी। रौनक रुका और बोला, ‘शिल्पा दीदी, मेरी टीचर कहती है कि हम जिस तरह अपने घर को साफ़ रखते है उसी तरह हमें अपनी गली, मोहल्ले, शहर और देश को भी स्वच्छ और सुन्दर रखना चाहिए। इससे हमें बीमारियाँ भी नहीं होगी और हम देश के अच्छे नागरिक भी कहलायेंगे।’

रौनक की बाते सुन शिल्पा को अपनी गलती का अहसास हुआ और उसने सड़क से कचरा उठा कर कुछ ही दूरी पर रखे कूड़ेदान में डाल दिया।

कुछ देर में रौनक अपने दोस्त गौरव के घर पहुँच गया। गौरव वहां नहीं था। गौरव की मम्मी रसोईघर में खाना बना रही थी। रौनक ने देखा कि एक कमरे में लाइट और पंखा चल रहा था और वहां कोई नहीं था।

रौनक रसोईघर में गया और बोला, ‘रोली आंटी, पास वाले कमरे में लाइट और पंखा चल रहा है। मेरी टीचर कहती है कि हमें बिजली व्यर्थ नहीं जलानी चाहिए वरना एक दिन ऐसा आएगा जब हमें फिर से अँधेरे में रहना पड़ेगा।’

रौनक की समझदारी भरी मीठी-मीठी बातें सुनकर रोली आंटी कमरे में गयी और लाइट और पंखा बंद कर दिया और रौनक के सर पर प्यार से हाथ फेरकर बोली, ‘बेटा तुम्हारी टीचर बिल्कुल सही कहती है। मैं आगे से ख्याल रखूंगी। तुम छत पर जाओ गौरव वहां तुम्हारा इंतजार कर रहा है।’

रौनक छत पर गया और दोनों दोस्त खेलने लगे।

Poem on Humanity in English

(1)

Humanity is Going on a Wrong Path

The fire of hatred is burning in our hearts
Envy, malice and hate are doing us apart
Life is short for even love
But humanity is going on a wrong path.

By favoring racism and regionalism
We are losing our identity
Neither 'Hindu' nor 'Muslim' nor 'Christians'
First we should become the followers of humanity.

The business of religion is deceiving us at last
The politics of criminals is flourishing very fast
Life is short for even love
But humanity is going on a wrong path.

The blood of innocent people
is being shed in the game of politics
For the sake of vote bank
Such issues prove boon for the opportunist.

These things are bothering me day and night
I wish! soon peace will take place in my heart
Life is short for even love
But humanity is going on a wrong path.

We Need A Human

We don't need any God or religion
We need a human filled with love and affection.

Who is compassionate and moralistic
Yet strong and energetic.

Who can listen the suppressed screams
Who can collect the broken dreams.

Who can show the path in darks
Who can break the border walls.

Who can find the lost hopes
Who can break the heart locks.

Who can stop the violence and threats
Who can think beyond his interests.

Poem on National Integration in English

(1)

Think for the Nation

Don't spread the fire of racism
Don't sing the song of regionalism
Don't divide on behalf of lingualism
Please embrace humanism.

We all feel the same thirst
We all feel the same hunger
We all have the same pulsation
We all breathe the same air.

Then why these heart distances
Why these compulsions
Why this narrow thinking
and Why this discrimination?

Stop killing Mankind in the name of religion
Take the whole country as a single region.
Don't be so blind for the sake of superstitions
Rise above your self interest and think for the nation.

Let’s All Unite

I am looking at the stars
With the message of unity
Millions of them twinkling in the dark night.
Seeing the beauty of their united efforts
Let us all unite.

I am thinking about a family
Sacrifices by its members
are not to each other
But to the unity of their house.
Seeing the lastingness of these relations
Let us all unite.

I am dreaming of a nation
Continue as free and independent
Reaching its goal and destination.
In real for our nation to stand upright
Let us all unite.

To get strength in opinion
To get power in actions
To get efficacy in character
To get success in every walk of life
Let us all unite.

To help at the time of flood, cyclone, drought and earthquake
To eliminate corruption, racism, terrorism and rape
To escape from thieving, robbery, smuggling and hoarding
To kill all the devils and vice
Let us all unite.

To run all the voluntary activities
To heal all bruises big and small
To make the pleasure great and despair less
To complete all the difficult tasks in short of time
Let us all unite.

For defense against oppression and injustice
For bringing much more love, peace and understanding
For saying no to hate, bigotry and prejudice
Sinking down all differences
Let us all unite.

Let us rise above sectional interests
Let us reject violence and selfishness
Thinking, feeling and breathing thoughts of unity
at every moment of life
Let us all unite.

Unity of Colors Makes a Rainbow

Hindu Muslim fight is a fight
 in which neither a hindu nor a muslim wins
In fact there is a defeat of
humanity and humans.

Being a hindu or muslim
Is there any meaning?
When it's on the cost of
lost human beings.

Losing love, kindness and compassion
Dead souls in the name of religion.

Our unity, integrity and solidarity
is now at stake
It hampers the growth of the nation
at every step.

Whether we worship god
in different ways
We should realize
what the underlying spirit in each religion says.

The underlying spirit in each religion
is to serve mankind
So follow the true religion
without being blind.

No religion sanction violence
No religion preaches hatred
So try to promote harmony
and spirit of brotherhood.

We don't share blood
but we share the air that keeps us alive
Harmony is the keynote of the river of life.

The best gift god gifted to humans
is the wisdom
So please put your logical mind
and think what should be our religion.

Is it not possible to be a human
whose heart is a mosque and mind is a temple
Where God or Allah lives in the form of
humanity and love.

Communal harmony will bring
love and peace in our life
When there will be unity of colors
a beautiful rainbow will shine.

Let all people in the world
live in happiness and bliss
No more fear, suspicion and hatred
I wish!

Reservation

The caste based reservation
is beyond my imagination
For the sake of vote bank
It's dividing the nation.

It's the murder of real talent
a huge impairment
It's causing brain drain
for which we will repent.

Stop these dirty tricks
to win the election
O selfish politicians!
think for the nation.

The economic reservation
is the real solution
To bring the equality
provide equal education.

Poem on Poverty in English

A Dream of Filling the Stomach

He leaves the home
in the hope of filling his stomach...
weaving the dreams
in the net of uncertainty.

Sometimes
his dreams come true
and he is able to earn
as much that can win his hunger.
At times his dreams gets sleep
with his empty venter.

Every time the hopes raised in his heart
appears to die in the cycle of
leader’s speeches, fake promises and victory.
Under the rule of corruption and ambitions
his stomach is kicked frequently.

He can’t understand!
How the shares fall while the inflation is rising?
When nothing is changed in his life
then why these leaders keep changing.

By putting eyes on the prices of
flour, lentils, potatoes and onions
The son of the soil curses his fate.
He walks out again on the path of uncertainty
carrying the dream of filling his stomach
When the nervous sun rays enters his closet.

Poverty is a curse. A section of society in our country is not able to fulfill even their basic needs. The above poem is reflecting the pain of such people, who are even not sure to get the food to fulfill their hunger. Their dreams are confined to just calm their hunger. The worm of corruption eats the share of these poor people while executing the development programs and schemes. Because of the injustice and corruption, economic disparity is increasing day by day, that is a bad sign for our economy. There is a need to eradicate the poverty from the roots.

Poem on Truth in English

(1)

Truth Always Wins

Truth! never bow, never die
No matter how powerful is the lie.

Never stop, never pause
Even if the paths are filled with fog.

These tracks are waiting for you to bright
So never be afraid if there is no light.

Be the sunshine and never disappear
Even if the black clouds of false appears.

The wind of injustice is blowing everywhere
Eliminate its effect with your fragrance and flavor.

With all the odds you have to survive
Breaking walls of fraud you have to arrive.

You have to defeat all the sins
You have to prove that truth always wins.

Wish! I could Pen

Today I want to write truth
that remains unwritten while writing so many things
Yes, I want to write all the pain
that remains hidden in smiling lips.

I wanna write the love
that remains unexpressed in our expressions
I wanna write the outrage
that gets buried under the merciless compulsions.

I wish to write the malice
that gets shelter in hearts but not visible to others
Wish, I could write the poison
that shows its effect without any sputter.

I will write the affection
that is not understood by an ungrateful son
Of course I will write the selfishness
that is easily transferred by a person.

I should write the innocence
that is swallowed by a cunning very subtly
Obviously I should write the tears
that are drunk by a struggler very strongly.

Every Time I sit to write something
unspoken always remains
I wish! one day all the hidden truth and expressions
I could pen.

I Wanna...

Wanna read the eyes not the words
Wanna read the books that are covered.

Wanna hear the silence not the noise
Wanna hear the hearts broken like toys.

Wanna listen the thoughts not expressed
Wanna listen the questions that are suppressed.

Wanna look the faces that are masked
Wanna study the evil intentions of these hearts.

Wanna collect the dreams that are unfulfilled
Wanna search the hopes that are unrevealed.

Wanna feel the depth of the talks going around
Wanna hear the suppressed and muffled sounds.

Wanna fill the hearts with love and joy
Wanna kill the evils that daily annoy.

Wanna break the borders and fly like bird
Wanna carry you all in a beautiful world.

Monika Jain 'Panchhi'

So much is unrevealed in this world. So much is hidden. I wish! I could see all that are invisible, could hear the words that are unspoken, could read everything that is unwritten. I wish! I could feel, understand and share the hidden pain of some broken hearts and unfulfilled dreams. I wish! I could hear and give voice to some suppressed screams. I wish! I could answer all the wet questioning eyes. I wish! I could reveal the reality of the masked faces and their evil intentions those carry smile, gentleness, respect, humility and seems very decent but as soon as they get chance they execute their evil intentions. I wish! I could unveil all the things that should be unveiled.

Religion Quotes in English

Religion Quotes
