[dropcap]T[/dropcap]hank You…   the sweetest man-made gestures ever found in the world of words! And reciprocation of these beautiful words build strong relations. Words are the most powerful medium of communication in this era of social media as well as socialization in our own surroundings. Because, words can break the barriers of place, distance and time and could make powerful emotional connect. But, when words get weird, they not only break hearts but also relations. The poem portrays the battle of emotions induced after the war of words.

shabd words

कुछ शब्द लिखे, कुछ शब्द कहे, 
कुछ उँगलियों से बस बह निकले |
कुछ शब्द चुने, कुछ स्वयं बुने 
फिर रिश्तों की एक नींव रखी |
अलौकिक से शब्दों से बुना
कुछ लौकिक, भौतिक सा रिश्ता |
शब्दों पे खड़ा, शब्दों का महल, 
फिर शब्दवार से ध्वस्त हुआ |
जब निकले कुछ बेलाग शब्द, 
वो चुभे ह्रदय में, फाँस बने |
शब्दों से जुड़ा था जो रिश्ता 
शब्दों की ही फ़िर भेंट चढ़ा |
शब्दों ने किया जब शब्दघात, 
विद्रूप हंसी और अट्टहास |
मुस्कान बनी फ़िर आर्तनाद 
और शब्द बहे बनकर आँसू |
कुछ तीर बने फ़िर ज़हर बुझे
आँखों में चुभे फ़िर आग बने |
शब्दों ने जलाया है जिसको, 
जलकर बुझे, और राख बने | 
कुछ जबरन गुदे हथेली पर 
कुछ दीवारों में चुनवाया |
शब्दों की शक्ति से रिश्तों को
वाग्जाल में उलझाया 
अब शब्द हैं निःशब्द, चुप
संवेदनाएं रो पड़ीं |
शब्दों की फ़िर जंग छिड़ी 
और शब्दों की ही हार हुई| 

—  संगीता मिश्रा

  • Beautiful

  • Agree totally with you. By using these simple but powerful words from the heart, many things can be conquered.

    • Welcome to TSS . Well said. We often forget that and indulge ourselves into a mess. Thank you so much for commenting. 🙂

  • No Avinash, you are mistaken. “शब्द” used here (in the title) is plural only. “शब्द” is such a word which is used as singular and plural both. As, “mere shabd” is being translated as “my words”. If I say “mere shabd bematlab nahin” it’s plural, whereas I can also say “mere shabdon ka matlab samjho”, it’s also plural, but when I say “mera ek ek shabd matlab rakhta hai” here “shabd” becomes singular.

    So, it all depends upon usages. Hope I’m clear now. 🙂

  • बहुत ही शक्तिशाली अभिव्यक्ति, संगीता.

    कभी शब्द कहर ढाते हैं तो कभी शब्दों का अभाव रिश्तों को नुकसान पहुंचा जाता है. कभी-कभी मौन रहना शब्दों का इस्तेमाल करने से ज़्यादा नुकसान पहुँचा सकता है- जैसे कि अपने ऊपर हो रहे अन्याय पर चुप रहना.

    मगर मै मानवीय-सम्बन्धों के परिप्रेष्य मे लिखी गई इस कविता के मूल संदेश से सहमत हूँ.

    ताक़त शब्दों मे नहीं, कहने या लिखने वाले मे होती है. और प्रतीत होता है कि उपरोक्त पद्य का लेखक शब्दों में ताकत भरने में बहुत माहिर है.

    • धन्यवाद साकेत जी |

      कविता आपको पसंद आयी, इसके लिए अनेक आभार |

      बिलकुल सत्य कहा आपने, शब्दों की ताक़त असीम होती है, पर आवश्यक है उनका सही उपयोग | शब्दों का उपयोग काम हो या ज़्यादा, सटीक शब्द हमेशा कारगर सिद्ध होते हैं.

      प्रसंशा के लिए फिर से धन्यवाद |
