Kashmir - The (non)-Issue

Kashmir issue is something that is an issue made out to satisfy someone's ego. The issue has more to do with the Geo-Political revenge case rather than genuine actual claim of territory.

Those who are learned and who have their senses intact would know that Historically Kashmir was always part of the "Undivided India". However at the time of partition and Independence, the then "Hindu Ruler" of Kashmir decided to have Kashmir as a Sovereign State. The Political Leadership agreed to it. However, Pakistan could not accept it and went in to attack Kashmir and the insurgents tried to Capture over the Territory. It is then the Ruler of Kashmir sought help from India and annexed the territory to India with the creation of "Article 370". Certainly this didn't go down well with Pakistan and they tried their level best to get Kashmir.

As if this was not just the Case, the war of 1971 (when Bangladesh was liberated from Pakistan's regime) rubbed salt on Pakistan's ruling think tank's wounds. However, the issue of Kashmir actually picked up only after Pakistan's failed attempts of the "Khalistan Movement".

So, if we look at the entire history of Kashmir issue, the case is not the liberation of Kashmir or the upliftment of Muslims in Kashmir. So I guess, none of the Muslim Leaders have got any right to make statements that "Muslims around the World should support the Muslims in Kashmir" or any similar comment. They need to know the Historical Truth before making such Controversial statements. And Muslim Community across the world must note that "Such Leaders are unnecessarily Politicizing the Kashmir issue to Bake Their Own Bread." Before making such statements they need to look at the case of Migrant Muslims in Pakistan, who are treated as Second Grade Citizens and are referred to as "Muzahirs".

Kashmir was, is and will be part of Sovereign Indian Republic.

भूल ना पाती वो नाते

कुछ पंक्तियाँ यूँ लिखी किसी ने कि मन हुआ विचलित....
कुछ नींदें कुछ स्वप्न चुरा कर जब तुमसे करती बातें,
सज जाती हैं बंद पलक पर, विगत दिनों की बरसातें,
बूँद - बूँद सिमटे जाते पल भीग-भीग कर गीला मन,
सुधियों की कैसी बदली जो, भूल ना पाती वो नाते ||
पढ़ इन पंक्तियों को विचार कुछ उमड़े ह्रदय में| उठा कलम लिख दीं कुछ पंक्तियाँ हमने भी -

भूल ना पाती वो नाते, आखों में जो स्वप्न जगाते
अधरों पर सिमट सी जाती बरसात कि वो कोमल बूंदें
ह्रदय में यूँ सिमट जाते पल वो जो यूँ बीते
कुछ बीते तेरी बांहों कुछ बीते तेरी पलकों में

स्वप्न में जब तुम आती, मेरे ह्रदय में बस जाती
अपनी काली लंबी लटों से, घटाओं सा स्पर्ष कराती
भूल ना पाती वो नाते, आँखों में जो स्वप्न जगाते
कुछ नींदें कुछ स्वप्न चुरा कर हम तेरी यादों में खो जाते

दास्तान आंसुओं की

आंसुओं की दास्ताँ न पूछ मुझसे
कि आंसू तो यूँही निकल पड़ते हैं
थामना भी चाहूँ इन्हें
मगर तेरी याद में बह निकलते हैं

She Melted in My Arms

When I saw thee on the airport
I was shocked and a lil short
Short of words
Short of time
I just looked at her and Smiled
I knew it would work and take me miles
Miles in the air
Miles of her care

It did happen when she smiled back
She sought my number while serving cake
Her pink lips looked too inviting
Her smooth skin was too tempting
She called me that night
I was at the height of my delight
I asked if we can meet
Talk something while we eat

She came to meet me on the floor
I saw her right at the door
My heart thumped when I saw her
My legs Shivered as on the shore
I went and held her hand
Went right on my knee
When they started the Band
With her Beauty I was Blind

When she brought me close up
To kiss me lip to lip
I was lost in her eyes
I was so much mesmerized
She kissed me so seductively
I was lost in her arms actively
It was then I hugged her tight
Made her melt in my grip that night

Dedicated Corruption

Looking Back when it was at Prime
Government went to declare it Crime
Corruption was taken as an Offense
To the extent it penetrated in Defense
Height was when it entered the Coffin
With our Ministry eating foreign Muffin

Long back they went buying Cannons
Seems they took some from Memmons
Money moved with Leaders Hand in Hand
Leaving the Nation on the Bus Stand
Probe started and went for ages
Culprits even went out of life's cages

There were many other scams to count
We can sit to pile and create a mount
They went to eat the Animal Food
Telephone connections went to Wood
Security cordons put to stake for Land
Irregularities went to Wireless Band

But one thing that came clear
Dedication to Corruption is here
It is here to stay with no move
Even if it cause Government to cove
I say regularize the commission
Cut the pay to move this Motion
