Jamhuriyat Ka Tamasha - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Mere sheher ka badshah bhi fakir nazar aata hai
Haath mein katora liye woh vote maangta phir raha hai

Jamhuriyat hai kya yeh tum kya jaano
Badalon se chand ke nikalne ka ek zariya hai jano

Zara ruk jao abhi kuch der tum saase tham kar
Woh nikla hai maangne jhuthe wade liye hue

Kya yahi surat hai jamhooriat ki janab
Ki padhe likhe aur anpadh ek ho gaye jahan.

Topic(s) of this poem: political humor

Form: Ghazal


Poet's Notes about The Poem

मेरे शेहेर का बादशाह ही फ़क़ीर नज़र आता है

हाथ में कटोरा लिए वो वोट मांगता फीर रहा है

जम्हूरियत है क्या ये तुम क्या जानो

बादलों से चाँद के निकलने का एक जरिया है जानो

ज़रा रुक जाओ अभी कुछ देर तुम सासे थाम कर

वो निकला है मांगने झूठे वादे लिए हुए

क्या यही सूरत है जम्हूरियत की जनाब

कि पढ़े लिखे और अनपढ़ एक हो गए जहाँ

    Naam ki Jamhuriyat hai inha miyaan
    Koi kya khata hai usse dekh ke qatal kar te hai
    Koi kya pehenta hai usse dekh kar
    uss ki izzat mapte hai
    Koi kuch aur bole jo na aaye pasand
    to uska gala dabate hai

    Allah ho ya Raam
    Sikh, Hindu ya Musalman
    Kon kehta hai ke qatal karne se
    Jamhuriyaat behtar hota hai?

    Kiss kitab mein hai ye likha? ?

    Aap aap ho,
    hum hum hai
    Ya aap rahein ab
    ya hum rahenge!

    Yeh hai haalat abhi
    Kaunsi Jamhuriyaat yahan miya?

    Kaunsi hai duniyadari? ?

    Andhe hai sab
    Ya dikhta nahi duniyadari? ?


    Bohut hi achi kavita likhi hai apne Asimji.. Bohut hi achi.. Aaj kal jo shuru hua hai tamasha hi nahi, qatal kar ke rakh diya sab ne milke iss desh ka.. Iss dharti par jahan hum saadion se ek saath rahe hai, wahan aaj dharm ke naam pe logo ko maar rahe hai, baag rahe hai? ? Hindusthani hai hum - chahe kisi dharm ke ho, ya fir dharm na mante ho (mai khud nastik hu) - par wo apni apni baktigat mamla hai. Aur ye log, hume baat kar, maar kar, dara kar, iss desh ko tor ne pe lage hue hue hai... Laalat hai inhpe jo ye saab kar ke khud ko hindusthani kehte hai.. Laalat hai...

    Sukhriya Asimji. Issi tarah se aawaj utha te rahiye - hum saab ek hai -Hindusthani - yahi parichai hai humara, bas aur kuch nahi.. Sukhriya...

    Democracy is the real way to make the government but utmost care should be taken while casting and rating a vote, As you correctly pointed all are not equal nor blessed with virtues, Vote of an illiterate be considered a single whereas for the educated one it should be more...........A thoughtful poem.10 (Report) Reply

    वह हाथ का है
    जानो वह वोट रहा है जानो का नज़र
    बड़ा घोटाला

    Irrespective of such defects as elaborated, and may be many more, jamhuriat(democracy) is the best among all forms of polities existing in today's world.
    Off course the satire is most amusing and realistic. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
