स्वतंत्रता संघर्ष

स्वतंत्रता संघर्ष इस कविता में एक देशभक्त नवयुवक ने भारत के आज़ादी के वक्त अपनी भावनाए व्यक्त की हैं|

"स्वतंत्रता संघर्ष"
कौन कहता हैं सब समाप्त हो गया,
अभी तो एक शुरुआत हैं |
२५० सालों के संघर्ष के बाद,
पूर्व में नया सूरज उग रहा है |

अंग्रेजों के उस विश्वास को,
हमें पूरी तरह तोड़ना हैं |
और संपूर्ण भारत को,
एक माला में जोड़ना हैं |

मुसीबते तो बहुत आएँगी आगे,
संघर्ष करते चलना हैं |
अपनी अबंधित तरक्की से,
पूरी दुनिया को हिलाना हैं |

तरक्की की राह में,
एक बात हमें भूलनी नहीं |
परायों से जाने के बाद,
अपनोंसे परायों जैसे व्यवहार करना नहीं |

अब कोई गरीब नहीं रहेगा,
अब कोई भूक से नहीं मरेगा |
आज़ाद भारत की इस भूमि पर,
हर भारतीय घर संपन्न रहेगा |
- भारतीय आनंद

क्रांति फिर आएगी (Kranti Fir Aayengi)

हवा में उड़कर,
लहरों पर तेरकर,
आग में जलकर,
क्रांति फिर आएगी|

डंके के चोट पर,
सरकार के नोक पर,
करोड़ों के हाथों से,
क्रांति फिर आएगी ।

लोगों की फुंकर से,
लहराती हुई तलवार से,
शहीदों के ललकार से,
क्रांति फिर आएगी ।

लाखों सो रहे थे,
देश की हालत पर रो रहे थे,
सबकी नींद खुल जाएँगी,
क्रांति फिर आएगी |

चाहे तुम साथ हो,
या हमारे खिलाफ हो,
मेरे देशी के लिए,
क्रांति फिर आएगी |

वो दिन दूर नहीं ,
जब भारतमाता अपने सपोतों
को एक पायेगी,
इस पावन वर्ष  में,
क्रांति जरूर आएगी।
- Anand Purohit, 2011

अब कोई नहीं बिस्मिल यहाँ

गोलियोंके गुंज में भी,
सुनते थे हम कहानियाँ।
चलते निकले पश्चिमकी ओर,
उत्तरकी तरफ करदी रवानिया।

वा रे कवियोंकी कल्पनामें,
जाकर तू कब फँस गया।
क्यों तू बिस्मिल के शोकमें,
जब प्रेम गीतोमें समा सज गया।

आज पूछें वो आझाद हमसे,
रामप्रसाद कहाँ खो गया।
खून जो मिट्टीमें मिला था,
आज की नसलोमें क्यों सो गया।

साथी हमसे तुम खफा होते,
देशसे क्यों तू रूठ गया।
खून के आँसू बहाते फिरसे,
बिस्मिल कब्रमें जाकर सो गया।

सोचूँ अलविदा का ख़त लिखकर,
मैं भी छोड़दूँ ये जहाँ,
क्योंकि दिन के अँधेरे मैं ढूँढू,
फिरभी अब कोई नहीं बिस्मिल यहाँ।

देश या परिवार ?

ये कविता उस राष्ट्रवादी युवा के मन की दुविधा को व्यतीत करती है, जो अपने घर की जिम्मेदारी और देश के संकटों में अपनी कर्तृत्व के बीच में असमंजस में आ गया है | 

राष्ट्र-निर्माण के इस यज्ञ में,
समय आहुति के लिए पुकारता ।
पुकार अनसुनी करके वो शक्स,
अपने परिवार के सपने साकारता ।

देश संकटों में घिरा हुआ,
रक्त की नदियाँ मांगता रहा ।
अपनी बहन के विवाह संबंध में,
वो खून-पसीना एक करता रहा ।

क्रांतिवीरों की महफ़िल सजी,
देश की हालात पर हाहा-कर मची ।
विवाह के दिन बहन की डोली सजी,
विदाई के समय शहनाई बजी ।

शहीदों के अस्थि-कलश जमा हुए,
उनके रख से माथे सजे ।
उस आंखों से आसू बह गया,
जब दुल्हन की मांग में सिंदूर भरा गया ।

आखरी संग्राम का शंक्नाद हुआ,
उस शख्स को जोड़ने की आवाज लगादी ।
अपने परिवार के लिए उसने मांगी दुवा,
देश-द्रोहियों को काटने तलवार उठाली ।

देश के लिए बलिदान दिया,
अमर-गाथा ने याद किया ।
‘वन्दे भूमि’ में मिल गया,
परिवार नहीं, देश के लिए मर गया ।

Tackling the majoritarian syndrome in cadre-based organization

An organization is governed by an unwritten set of principles that hold its sanctity and direction. These principles are protected not by rule but by the moral conscience of the majority cadre working in the organization. The majoritarian moral conscience assures that principles can be enacted in practice, but if the same opposes it, then no authority can guarantee them in the real sense of the word 'principle.'

The defying majority's goals replace the original path set as per the principles. The principles however righteous it may be, can never operate against a majority who are determined to defy it supported by an inaction of the authorities.

The silent minority allows the corrupt majority to legislate new rules towards their vested interests. Infact unable to adjust itself to changed and new condition, it falls back as an old man falls back into his arm-chair.

In a bid to challenge the authority, the majority manufactures it's own 'great men' that can take on the revolting minority that could stand loyal to the stated principles. This great men introduce idolatary which brings in blind worshipism and keeps criticism at par. They assure that their disciples never become wiser than their master for them to lead unquestionably.

The authority gets carried away by the perception play and overlooks the continuous decay tuning into songs of the glorification of the 'great men.' The original great men experience stagnation and come to a time when it sees no vision. They can't portray their worth as their worth is of the kind that they cannot speak of, or they are not conscious about it. Being frustrated by splendid isolation, they cannot help themselves much than to live as an outcaste in their own organization. Who will worship a scavenger even if he is motivated selflessly by the dynamics of a special purpose?

The chaos can only be challenged by a person with indisputable integrity with a high standard of moral righteousness, sincere convictions, and of public spirit, in courage, uprightness, and a certain soundness and rational moderation of judgment which springs quite as much from character as from intellect. On top of it, the patience to see dreams of others fulfilled in storms of unrest defines him. He must be cautious in his approach against the fugitive majority. The divinity in his goals must not provoke him to set up his ideal which is purely imaginary. He could even be victim of the same impersonal approach that he stands for.

Mazzini once said,"You may kill men, but you cannot kill a great idea." But how can an idea propagate without a medium?

The medium to propagate is to create cadre in the organization who would know the principles which once the organization stood for, and if they are convinced of their value and their worth, then to spread them. And like a scavenger, they must be ready to face all hardships, discredit, outcaste and tests of righteousness again and again to restore the principles on whose faith the organization can work to it's utility!

Together We Fought - Together We Won

9th February 2016 - A day that has registered itself in the golden pages of student movement. When 3,000 students boycotted classes to support ABVP's protest against draconian late fees charged by Raisoni Campus. 900 students eventually became part of the protest which was the highest number the campus porch could accommodate. The protest lasted from 11a.m. to 3p.m. with the whole four hours went with the campus echoing students slogans with burning sun and no food at all. 30 ABVP student activists from the campus and the city unit addressed the determined student protesters. The movement which started in mid-December was in it's ultimate day. It saw dozens of ABVP college campus meetings, technical research, outdoor campaigning, social media campaign, signature campaign of 1,010 students, 31 classroom meetings, 2 mega public meetings. After memorandum on 5th January, brainstorming discuss with administration on 12th January and final memorandum calling for protest on 2nd February, the movement took 'No Memorandum, No Discussion, Only and Only Decision' on the D-Day. A mass movement supported by ABVP Raisoni Campus Unit's 55 member committee which could win the trust of the last standing student in support of the protest. The victory verdict to completely stop late fees is a victory of the movement which encourages to 'Raise Voice Against Injustice'. I hope this would be a stepping stone to raise similiar movements of ABVP against the commercialization of education. I congratulate each and every student of Raisoni Campus and thank ABVP for keeping the flame burning in us!

Students' Power - Nation's Power!

Lest We Forget - Rohith Vemula’s Last Words

As the sad news of student activist Rohith Vemula’s suicide had hit the nation, political vultures started feeding on the tragedy tagging it Dalit vs Non-Dalit battle. Suicides are often reasoned with failure in life but the question arises that how can an activist who has himself dared to choose to serve people transit to a mindset which prompted him to take the decision. The answer is deep buried in brother Rohith’s suicide note.

As main-stream media was busy discussing this incident in prime-time debates, social media saw a different trend. The dominant youth on the micro-blogging platform twitter was mourning the sad demise of a research scholar but was vocally spilling out their immediate reaction by trending‪ #‎StopIdentityPolitics. They were disappointed to see a student activist's suicide turn into Dalit suicide. Rohith didn’t stand for this in his last moments, which is adamant from what he wrote in his suicide note.

“The value of a man was reduced to his immediate IDENTITY and nearest POSSIBILITY. To a VOTE. To a NUMBER. To a thing.”

Religion-caste based politics has ruined the nation and now the political masters have taken to the campus to spread their hatred. This is evident from political posturing from Rahul Gandhi to the likes of Arvind Kejriwal. But the real culprit who is trying to generate this caste struggle is the slowly eliminating communist ideology in India. From the class struggle proposed by Marx to caste struggle generated from the JNU R&D Left Labs, it has disillusioned and continues till date in the name of Dalit-communist alliance. It is absolute hypocrisy that Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar had rejected Marxism in his last speech at Katmandu.

Rohith’s suicide note had been sent to the forensic lab for analysis. Reports emerged about an entire paragraph that had been scratched off the note. There is a possibility that it was Rohith who struck off the paragraph, because of a line written in a bracket next to it: "I myself strike these words off." It is signed, purportedly by him. The deleted words are about Rohith's disillusionment with his own union, the Ambedkar Students' Association.

On close examination, the portion of the note that Rohith, perhaps on second thoughts, decided to keep concealed, reads: "ASA, SFI, anything and everything exist for their own sake. Seldom the interest of a person and these organisations match. To get power or to become famous or to be important in between boundaries and to think we are up to changing the system, very often we overestimate our acts and find solace in traits. Of course I must give my credit to these both groups for making introducing me to wonderful literature and people”.

Every young college-going student is today disillusioned about his path to serve the society. We have huge spectrum of artificial insensitive photoshoot NGO’s, caste organizations, religious organizations, extremist organizations, mass but exclusive organizations but very few organization which could develop a national character in the person in return of a satisfaction to serve Indians and not Dalits or Muslims. Innumerable theories/ideologies have failed to capture the fascination of the youth to serve towards its ideologies. They have their ways leading to ‘Son of the soil, Hindu Nation, Muslim Nation, Sikh Nation, Nation of the Mulniwasis, religious conversions and atlast the Utopian ever-charming Revolution!

The goals of individuals or organization can never exceed the goals and character of a nation. Dr. Ambedkar, despite his own bitter experiences with upper caste oppression, was for the “annihilation of caste” and not the "annihilation of upper class people". Same goes for bitter experiences with caste, communities or religion. Let’s unite, sit-back and think that what our previous generations had offered us and then decide what we have to offer for our next generations.
I pledge to remember Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar each day by abiding by the constitution which prohibits violent movements and discriminates people on the basis of caste and religion.
Jay Bheem!
