radha krishna painting
‘Radha Krishna’ by Maitreni Mishra

मेरी यात्रा अविरल, हर पल
मैं चली छोड़ ऐश्वर्य, महल
मुड़कर देखा बस एक बार
कुछ टूटा था, जो छूटा था
मैं आहत थी और शब्दहीन,
तुम मुखर बड़े और प्रखर खड़े |

कुछ कहा-अनकहा बाकी था
मैं कह न सकी, तुम सुन न सके
मैं कर न सकी कुछ अभिव्यक्त
तुम सुन न सके कुछ अतिरिक्त
बस स्वयं मेरा और अहम् तुम्हारा
रह न सके सान्निध्य में |

कभी मीलों तक थे तुम आगे
और मैं सदियों तक दौड़ पड़ी
शताब्दियों की इस यात्रा में
द्वय था, न हुए हम एकाकार
अद्वैत था बस नाम-मात्र
के शब्दों का बेबस विस्तार |

दुर्गम राहों पर चल-चलकर
मेरी सांसें रूखी सूखी सी
कुछ तुम थे आधे अधूरे
कुछ मैं भी रूठी रूठी सी,
और बीच की सारी कड़ियाँ थीं
कुछ जंग लगी, टूटी फूटी सी |

और खोज मेरी आरम्भ हुई
आध्यात्म चुनूँ या अस्मिता?
मैं खड़ी रही दोराहे पर,
और वहीँ हुआ परिचय तुमसे
कुछ पुरातन, कुछ नया नया
अनजाने को फिर पहचाना |

एक नाम था कुछ सुना-सुना
सदियों तक मैंने जिसे बुना
दिन-रात स्वप्न में बाँध-बाँट
जिसको मैंने प्रारब्ध चुना,
तुम पत्थर थे, मैं मांसपिंड
मैं मीरा थी, तुम थे गोविन्द |

और प्राण प्रतिष्ठा के हेतु
रचाया मैंने एक अभिसार
करके तुमको आत्मसात
बह चली मैं अविरल, तीव्र धार
अब तुम नहीं आधे अधूरे
और मैं हूँ तुममें एकाकार ||

People call me an atheist as, I neither pray, nor perform any rituals. But I share a special love-hate bond with my God. He is not a deity but a friend and beloved to me and how I talk to him is portrayed in this poem. Here’s sharing my daughter Maitreni’s ‘Radhi-Krishna’ painting along with my poem which she made about 10 years back when she was 14.

  • Jyotirmoy Sarkar

    Painting is good. poem is awesome, did not relate some lines but overall loved reading it.

    • Well, it’s really difficult to relate to someone else’s work. Reason being different ages , genders, cultures, places, sensibilities and many more. So, two people hardly relate to a single issue. But still, we try to understand other’s perspective and that’s the beauty of art and poetry. So, a every big thanks to you for appreciating my work. 🙂

    • Thanks 🙂

  • The painting is superb for that age and the words compliment it very well.

  • this is beyond words……the poetry is flawless as always Sangeeta but Maitreni’s painting has something deeper in it for me. Is it devotion, is it the ultimate union of two souls, I cannot say. The vibrant colors of the painting speak a poem of their own. They perform a ritual of love in the form of dance wherein unites the body with the soul. So so beautiful…!

    • Thanks a lot Sunaina. I’m so happy that you liked the painting that much. Means a lot. Any appreciation, that comes from you is extremely special to me. Thanks again for stopping by. Maitreni would be glad reading this. 🙂

      • Your saying that means a lot to me too Sangeeta…..I mailed you on IB about something…do check dear….

    • Omg! Thank you so much Sunaina. Your genuine appreciation means a lot to me. Really felt special. I’m so glad you liked it 🙂

      • Thanks to you for adding such beauty to my world Maitreni….I hope you still draw/paint…If you don’t, then pick up the brush again…!

        • I’ve left painting years back Dear. But your motivating words inspired me a lot. I’ll surely try to pick the brush again. 🙂

  • Purba Chakraborty

    This is lovely. Both the poem and the painting. Your devotion towards the Lord is palpable in this poem, especially loved the last 2 stanzas 🙂

    • Thank you so much Purba. Glad that you liked both the works. Your words always mean a lot to me. 🙂 <3

    • Thanks lots dear 🙂

  • Beautiful painting by Maitreni and nobody will say that the poem is from an atheist but an ardent devotee..!

    • Thank you so much. Yes, you guessed it right. I am a devotee, but not in the conventional sense. So, people call me an atheist. Glad that you liked the painting. 🙂

    • Thank you so much 🙂
