क्या आप कभी समझेंगे ??

Standard

क्या आप कभी समझ पाएंगे मुझ पर क्या बीत रही हैं? क्या आपको कोई एहसास हैं कि मेरे ऊपर क्या गुज़र रही हैं? मेरी हालत उस जल बिन मछली की तरह हो गयी हैं जिसे पानी से निकाल के थल पर रख दिया गया हैं। मैं तड़प रही हूँ। ना आपको भूल सकती हूँ, ना आपको कुछ कह पा रही हूँ। एकतरफा प्यार बोझ अब कठिन होती जा रही हैं।

यकीन मानिए एकतरफा ही सही पर इश्क़ तो हद से ज़्यादा हैं।

मुझे कोई अंदाजा नहीं कि आप मेरे साथ ऐसा क्यों कर रहे हो ? क्या आप मेरी ख़ामोशी नहीं समझ पा रहे? क्या आपको बदनामी का डर सता रहा है ? अगर ऐसा हैं तो मेरे प्यार पर भरोसा रखिए। मेरा प्यार मुक्कमल ना सही, पर कमज़ोर नहीं हैं । कभी भी नहीं ।

अगर उस दिन मैंने पूछा नहीं होता की क्या आपको मैं लेख भेज सकती हूँ, और यदि आपने हामी नहीं भरी होती तो शायद संकोच का वो झीना से पर्दा कभी ना हटा होता। आप वो पहले इंसान होंगे जिनसे मैंने इज़ाज़त मांगी थी। आपकी टिप्पणी जानने की जिज्ञासा थी और उससे भी ज़्यादा मन उत्सुक था आपकी मन की बात जानने के लिये। रात के करीब 11बजे आपने कहा था… “हाँ हाँ। क्यों नहीं। ज़रूर भेजो।”

मुझे भरोसा था कि प्यासे मुसाफ़िर को आज किनारा मिल जाएगा, और आज के बाद कुछ कहने सुनने की गुंजाइश नहीं रह जाएगी। आप एक पल में समझ जाएंगे कि जिस इंसान को मेरा पत्र ( एक चिट्ठी एकतरफ़ा प्यार के नाम ) अग्रेसित था वो कोई और नहीं, आप ही हैं। एक मिनट की प्रतीक्षा जन्मों सी प्रतीत हो रही थी। सुबह को जब आपके संदेश का इशारा हुआ तो मैंने कांपते हाथों के साथ आपका संदेश खोला। आपको मेरा लेख बेहद पसंद आया था, पहली बार मैंने लगभग 9 मिनट तक आपसे बातें की थी, जिसमे आप हर बार मेरी प्रशंसा किये नहीं थक रहे थे। आपको मेरी लेखनी की शैली काफी प्रभावशाली लगी थी। आपके अनुसार मेरा लेख दिल को छूने वाला था। पर क्या वो आपके दिल में अपनी जगह बना सका ये प्रश्न आज भी वही का वही हैं। खुशी तो थी पर अधूरी सी थी। उदासी थी एक और प्रयास के असफल होने की।

खुद को संभालना आसान नहीं होता वो भी तब आप पल पल बिखड़ रहे हो। कई बार सांत्वना दी खुद को, की आप और मैं दो अलग अलग दिशाओं से ताल्लूक रखते हैं। आशा थी कि आप चिट्ठी पढ़ के समझ जाएँगे की आपको प्रेषित हैं और मुझे समझाने के उद्देश्य से ही सही पर आप इस बारे में बात जरूर करेंगे। एक और नाकामयाब कोशिश की थी मैंने। मुझे अपने टूटने का एहसास हैं, जानती हूँ मेरे सवालों के जवाब सिर्फ आप दे सकते हैं, पर आप उनके लिए जवाबदेह नहीं हैं। काश कुछ आपसे कह पाती, फुट फुट के रो पाती, हाल ए दिल बयाँ कर पाती। एकतरफा मोहब्बत की प्रज्वलित अग्नि अक्सर इतनी बलशाली होती हैं कि अगर वो जीवन को नष्ट कर सकती हैं तो जीवन को एक नई गहराई की ओर मोड़ भी सकती हैं।

मेरे द्वारा लिखे गया हर अक्षर आपके लिए अपने इश्क़ को कबूलता हैं और इबादत करता हैं। मेरी हर कहानी का सार हैं आप, मेरी हर कविता का अर्थ हैं आप।

ज़िन्दगी कोई चलचित्र की तरह चलती फिरती बस एक कथा नहीं हैं, जहां अंत मे हम दोनों एक हो जाएँगे । ज़िन्दगी कठिन हैं। यह एक वास्तविकता हैं। मैं आपकी भावनाओं की भी उतनी ही कद्र करती हूँ जितनी ख़ुद के मोहब्बत की। आपका “हाँ ” सर आंखों पर, आपके “ना ” की भी उतनी ही इज़्ज़त हैं।

आप कभी एक दिन के लिए भी शहर छोड़ के चले जाते हैं तो आपको हमेशा के लिए खो देने का डर सताने लगता हैं। पता नहीं आप क्या मतलब निकालते होंगे मेरे उलूल जुलूल प्रश्नों का, पर दिल के हाथों मजबूर आशिक़ और क्या करे

एक रात को जब आपने कहा था कि कुछ दिल को छू देने वाली कहानियां ज़रूर भेजना, कुछ पंक्तिया तो आपके सामने लिख देने का मन हुआ था। एक क्षण के लिए लगा था आप समझ गए थे मैंने अचानक से हिंदी का दामन क्यों थामा हैं, आप जानते हैं हिंदी में बातें बेहतर तरीके से व्यक्त हो सकती हैं।

महीनों से नहीं मिली हूँ, पर यादें ताज़ा हैं। लगता हैं जैसे आपको कल ही तो मिली थी पहली बारअक्सर आपको उसी जैकेट में देखने को दिल व्याकुल होता हैं। मेरे दिन की शुरुआत और अंत आपकी तस्वीर को ही देख के होती हैं।

ख़ैर ! क्या फायदा ? आप ये पत्र भी समझ के अनदेखा कर देंगे, और तकलीफों में एक और घाव जोड़ देंगे। धैर्य आपकी ही देन हैं। आपको पाने की अभिलाषा में खुद को खो दिया। हर गाने में आपकी खुश्बू हैं, हर शाम आपकी राह तकती हैं।

इश्क़ दोनों तरफ से हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं, इज़हार-ए-मोहब्बत भी तसल्ली दे देगा।।

अगर ज़रा भी अभास हैं तो अब कह लेने दीजिये।

TWO ANGELS

Standard

BLURB :

Do you know the love story that the sea shares with the sea shore? The mighty sea travels with his companions; boats, sailors and the sea creatures together visit many destinations. When he gets tired from all his travels, he comes to the sea shore, and crashes down onto her, surrendering everything that he has. The sea shore keeps her arms wide open when he reaches for her, to soothe his tired body and take away his pain. The moment he is relieved of his pain, he longs to go back, and the seashore lets him go. The love that Arun and Esha share is just like that between the sea and the sea shore. Their relationship is short and leaves Arun devastated. Could he have found love only to lose it all to fate? Will he survive the loss? The answers take him back to Esha, and to the realization that love comes in many forms. This story is a journey to love through friendship, from loss to hope.

MY REVIEW :

I found ‘Two Angels’s a cute romantic book but the end chapters broke me into pieces. However, ending brought a big smile on face but with heavy heart. The book totally justify the point that love is innocent. The cover of the book could have been more beautiful. The author very well knew the taste of the present readers and I must appreciate the fact that the writing style of the author is brilliant. She very well knew how to maintain the interest of the readers till the end of the book. No doubt, it is a love story but then the story and the characters have a different magic in them. I could connect the most with Arun, the main protagonist of the book. I know how difficult it is to adjust in new school. Lucky are those whose friendship remains same. As every love story faces challenges in their life and so the characters in this story had to face. The book showed the reality that life is not a bed of roses. Overall, I loved reading each page of this book. I would read this book once all over again as soon as I get time.

PHASES OF MOON

Standard

The book is provided by <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/arudhaclub ”> Arudha Club</a> inexchange for a genuine review.

BLURB:

Every human being has different feelings and emotions at every stage of life, but they are unable to express. This book gives an expression, to various emotions of a human heart. The poetries in this book will echo your heart, and will give words and voice to your emotions. It covers different stages of life starting from teenage to marriage. Hope you love getting drowned in this emotional stream.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR :

Neha Jindal, the author of this work is an Accounts Professional having a corporate work experience of ten years. She developed an interest in poetry when she was at a tender age of sixteen years. She loves life to the core and loves to enjoy it with family and friends. She aspires to travel this world and admire its beauty. She is very enthusiastic and enjoys working on creative projects. The main mantra of her life is, “Live life fully so that when you look back, you fall in love with the journey that you have made.”

MY REVIEW :

“Phases Of Moon” is the shortest book I have ever read but then within these few pages the author summed up everything quite well. The cover of the book is beautifully designed. The book is divided into three sections consisting of six,six and eight poems respectively. Among all the sections, I could relate to ‘Teenage Shower’ and ‘Emotions Unleased’. The reason behind is I have experienced these two parts of life. I have gone through these two phases and so I could relate more. What all a girl goes through in her life is penned down in this book as the title of the book itself says ‘ Phases Of Moon – A poetic journey Of A Girl. ‘ The pictures present in the book were so amazing. Each poem had a message within it. The language of the book was very simple. The author could have written it in more attractive manner. Overall it was a wonderful read for one time.

What happens when opposites meet? When two completely different people find themselves drawn to each other? Can they really find happiness together? Can wheelchair-bound Ritwika find a chord that connects her to national-level athlete Chetan? Will Aditi’s irrepressible cheerfulness restart Jayant’s life, put on indefinite pause since his parents’ death? Does Indu, happily divorced, rediscover her faith in love with the reclusive Lokesh? When Opposites Meet is the story of three unlikely couples and the diffrences between them. It’s the story of love, and the possibility of finding it in the most unlikely of places.

He has written articles for Huffington Post and Scroll.in and has been featured in most leading newspapers and magazines. He has also spoken at numerous Indian and international forums like South Asia Media Summit (Islamabad), TEDx (Allahabad) and several IITs and IIMs.

MY REVIEW :

When Opposites Meet by Sachin Garg is an amazing book. The title if the book is enough to tell the theme of the book. The cover of the book has been designed quite well. It totally matches with the plot of the book. The book has been divided into 22 chapters and each chapter has a story to tell. The book consists of six main characters. Each character in the book holds the story within it. The story begins with the introduction of girl Ritwika and Bikram, her Twitter friend. Indu, Ritwika’s mother was a single parent to her daughter. Ritwika’s father was not at all interested in having his daughter custody. Ritwika was a handicapped child but she did not let this become her weakness. Her mother too always supported her. Indu and Ritwika were more of best friends than the mother daughter duo.
Ritwika cousin, Jayant has a different story in his life. After his parent death he turned to a silent guy. He met a girl Aditi who had a strange habit which was about to take her life. Aditi became one of the close friend of Jayant.
The book takes you through different lane of life. The author maintained the balance all the characters. Everyone we given equal importance. Not on a single point, I got confused between the story line. Overall; the author knew what exactly people want to read. Even being a love story the writing style of the author was different and he made the book engrossing. I would suggest this book to everyone. I bet you won’t regret picking this book.

THE ARAVAN HEAD

Standard

The book is provided by <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/arudhaclub ”> Arudha Club</a> in exchange for a genuine review.

BLURB:

A politically driven criminal syndicate tries to steal a valuable ancient artifact, The Aravan Head, from a very old temple of the transgenders in Hijravan. Police officer Arya foils the well planned attempt. The incident unfolds a deadly secret that connects to a series of mind-boggling crimes which points to an unlikely person of tremendous authority in the political & business circles of Mumbai. With his friends kidnapped, his own people involved with the criminals and himself facing departmental enquiry, Arya is strangulated from all sides. Meanwhile in Delhi, 4 college girls, fed-up with the canteen food, hire a cook. While they expect an old, typically professional person, they are in for a great surprise that leaves them sweetly shocked. But the surprise is short lived after a beautiful transgender arrives at their bungalow revealing secrets that baffle them. Unfortunately the lives of the 4 girls become a nightmare along with that of the transgender. Did Arya arrest the main perpetrator behind all the crimes? What dangers did the Transgender bring to the girls? Did they survive the deadly situation they were pushed into? What price did Arya pay to win?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR :

An avid reader, passionate about writing. Worked with several prestigious organizations and finally dedicated all time for writing. Love to mix classic style with contemporary way of writing. Have a personal library of 500 books from all around the world. Ambition is to carve a unique niche for myself amongst the greatest names in literature.

MY REVIEW :
Among all the genres, Thriller and History Mythology has always fascinated me less as compared to love stories. But at present when I picked few books of thrillers to read, the interest level of mine started increasing. The Aravan Head also proved to increase my curiosity level from the time I read the blurb of the novel. The cover of the book is designed as per the story line of the book.

The Aravan Head holds the story of Inspector Arya who tries to solve one incident after another. Moreover, what I admired the most that the author has covered those aspects in the book about which generally people fear to even talk about. The author has potrayed each character in the book quite well. Once you start reading the book you will be so engrossed that you won’t know when you will be reaching towards the end of the book.

Overall, the book is an amazing read with full of suspense in it. From the plot to the narrative technique everything is good. You will surely feel like watching this book as a movie someday.
