Aman Ka Tamaasha - by Prakash Gowda
Apropos to the Times of India's initiative "Aman Ki Aasha". Here's a different take on the concept of Aman ki Aasha. By posting this poem I am not saying whether I am in support or against the concept of Aman ki Aasha. Maybe I am just evading to discuss this topic. Actually I could even fall in love with the concept since Gulzar saab has written those wonderful lines about
"Aankhon ko Visa nahi lagta..."
And the amazingly beautiful lines about playing Kabbaddi on the border.
"Utho kabaddi Kabaddi kheley sarhado par
Jo aye ab ke to laut kar phir na jaai koi..."
Enough to fall in love with your enemy. Salaam Gulzar saab.
But by posting the Aman Ka Tamasha poem by Prakash I do agree that the dream of having peace with Pakistan is far from true. Especially now, with those Huge Tunnels coming up in Pakistan. I think they are watching a lot of Sunny Deol films.
Thus on this Republic Day, I do want some opinions from people on this concept of Aman ki Asha. The way I had tried commenting on the concept of Parade in New Delhi last year. Here.
Here's the poem
Aman Ka Tamaasha
Aman ki aasha, ka liye bataasha,
Sarhad paar chale hum, liye ek naya tamaasha.
Laut kar dekha, to sarhad par khoon laga tha,
Khoon nahin bhai, yeh ketchup hi hoga,
Jo kisi fauji ne is paar phenka hoga.
Wireless par aatankwaadiyo ki dhamki sunaai di,
Dhamki nahin bhai, yeh gaane ki farmaaish hi hogi,
Jo sarhad paar, chaai ke tapri se kisi ne guzaarish ki hogi.
TV on kiya to dekha: ek bazaar mein bumb phat gaya,
Bumb nahin bhai, yeh mehez chund pataakhe honge,
Jo us paar se kisi ne Idd ka jawaab Diwali se diya hoga.
Nafrat ke trishool nahin phenkne humein,
Magar pyaar ke mantar bhi nahin japne hain.
Us paar saare aakhir apne hi to hain.
Din mein dekha to kya hua,
Aman ke khwaab aakhir sapne hi to hai!
Is Gantantra divas par aao us paar haath milaaye hum,
Haath kat bhi jaaye to kya hua, haath to badhaaye hum!
Saath phir sur milaaye hum,
Desh mein log bhookhe mare to kya,
Aao Kasab ko biryaani khilaaye hum!
Aman ke geet behro ko sunaaye hum,
Pyaar ki paribhaasha anpadho ko sikhaaye hum.
Apni har aah ko, aman ki aag mein aao sekein hum.
Gaate, muskruaate agle haamle ki, aao raah dekhein hum.
- Prakash Gowda
