मैले आज फूल पाए

 

मैले आज फूल पाए

न मेरो जन्मदिन थियो न कुनै बिशेष दिन

हामी बीच केहि भनाभन भयो गएको रात एक छिन

अनि मेरो मुटु दुखेको थियो उहाँका निर्दयी वचनले

मलाई थाहा छ उहाँलाई पश्चाताप छ र ति कुरा भन्न खोज्नुभएको होइन उहाँले

किनकि मलाई आज फूल दिनुभयो उहाँले

 

मैले आज फूल पाए

न हाम्रो बिहेको बार्षिकी थियो न त कुनै बिशेष दिन

गएको रात उहाँले मलाई भित्तामा लडाउनु भो अनि घांटी थिच्नु भो एकछिन

लाग्यो यो कुनै नराम्रो सपना हो भनेर

बिश्वास गर्नै सकिन यो साचो हो भनेर

यो बिहानी मेरा शरीरमा रातिका निला अनि दुखेका डाम छ

मलाई थाहा छ उहाँलाई पश्चाताप छ

किनकि मलाई आज फूल दिनुभयो उहाँले

 

न कुनै आमाको मुख हेर्ने दिन थियो न त कुनै बिशेष दिन

गए राति उहाँले मलाई फेरी पिट्नु भयो एकछिन

यो पटक पैले भन्दा झन् दुख्ने गरि

म केहि गर्न सक्दिन होला उहाँलाई छाडी

कसरी बच्चाको स्याहार गर्नु? पैसा कसरी ल्याउनु म एक्ली?

मलाई उहाँ देखिन डर लाग्छ तर बाँच्नु सक्दिन उहाँलाई छाडी!

तर मलाई थाहा छ उहाँलाई पश्चाताप छ किनकि

मलाई आज फूल दिनुभयो उहाँले

 

मैले आज फेरी फूल पाए

आज को दिन बिशेष थियो, मेरो मृत्युको दिन

गए राति उहाँले मेरो हत्या गर्न सफल हुनुभयो

मलाई मरनाशन हुने गरि पिट्नुभयो

यदी मैले साहश जुटाएकी भए

अनि हिम्मतका साथ उहाँलाई छाडेकी भए

आज मैले फूल पाउने थियीन होला

मेरो अन्तिम फूल

Our Bhutanese hostel mates planted 10 saplings on the auspicious occasion of their king’s birthday this week. I was happy as alwayz to be taking the pictures and making people pose for. Even got bitten by some irate ants as someone from our group mistakenly stepped into its nest. The plantation program ended preety well.

Towards the end we had some samosa and tea to fill up our tummy. People who looked pale of hunger had smile painted over their faces. I could literally see it.

As i was editing the pictures in my post production, a deep thought came into my mind and i had a click- how many trees are there in the world? a simple question right? but very difficult to answer.
So i digged in into some research and found out that there are three trillion trees in the world. That is like in terms of seconds, total number of world’s trees is equal to 94368 years! right 94… years. My jaw was wide opened and my eyes were big round like that of cameleon (irrelevant eg, don’t mind) So these trees are roughly around 400 trees for every human. Currently, the world’s population is approx. 7.2 billion. And the world population is growing 80 million people every year (too many numbers)

Do you believe this, that 2,000 years ago, before the advent of agriculture, Earth had twice as many trees as it does now? And currently, the mother earth is losing 10 million trees a year.

So, the population is growing 80 million a year and trees are being sluttered 10 million per year.

Just wondering if every birthday from earth will have a tree sapling planted 🤗

even a single one would do…. and not in every birthday of yours my friend. Just imagine every individual on the earth would plant a sapling and care for it for their life time.

so how about a birthday tree this time in your birthday ?

Just a thought 🙂

FYI: I am SAF scholar from Nepal studying and living in Pondicherry university along with other SAF scholars from SAARC countries.

“फेरी सम्झाउदै छु तपाईलाई मित्र -“

एकजना महानुभावले नेपालमा धार्मिक सहिष्णुता छैन भन्दा ती व्यक्तीप्रती हाँसो र दया जागेर आयो अनि एउटा कविता लेखे!

“फेरी सम्झाउदै छु तपाईलाई मित्र -“

यस्तो विविधताले भरिएको मेरो देश
नेपाली नै हुन् भिन्नै भिन्नै भए नि भेष!

कमजोर होइन, हुन्छ बल एक्तामा
गर्भ गर्छु नेपाली भएर जन्मिएकोमा
धार्मिक सहिष्णुतामा, ल्होसारमा
देशैभरी मनाईने क्रिस्मस अनि तिहारमा

रमजान मनाउने मेरी छिमेकी पनि नेपाली
पिङमा रमाउने तपाई पनि नेपाली

नेपालीपन झल्किन्छ हिउले सेत्ताम्मे हिमालमा
छठ पर्व मनाईने नदीको किनारामा

गर्भ गर्छु नेपाली भएर जन्मिएकोमा
धार्मिक सहिष्णुतामा, ल्होसारमा
देशैभरी मनाईने क्रिस्मस अनि तिहारमा
यस्तो विविधताले भरिएको मेरो देश
नेपाली नै हुन् भिन्नै भिन्नै भए नि भेष!

एउटा कुरा सबैसँग साट्न मन लागिरहेछ!

आज बिहानै उठेर १ मिटरको खाल्डो खनियो। हाम्रो संस्थाले गाउँका किसानलाई समूहमा आबद्ध गर्न कागतीको बोट बाँडेको थियो। १० रूपैंया तिरे पनि उक्त रकम समूहको कोषमा जम्मा हुनेहुँदा यो किसानलाई नै फाइदा हो।

सकि नसकी म र आंगा (तामांग भाषामा बहिनी)ले २ ओटा खाल्डा ३ घन्टा लगाएर खन्यौं। असिना पसिना भइ हामीले आज काम गर्यौ। हातमा ठेला उठ्ने गरी गरेको काम मलाई गर्न जरूरी थिएन। दोस्रो खाल्डो खन्दा खेरी ठूलो ढुन्गा भेटियो र हाम्रो १घन्टाको मिहीनेत खेर गयो। त्यतिबेला “यो खाल्डो तिमी आफै खन म गए” मैले भनिन। बरू अर्को खाल्डो खन्न हामी लाग्यौ।

यता गाउँमा स्वयमसेवक हुँदा यतैको जीवनमा म रम्न थालेको छु। यसो बिगतको रमाइलो सम्झदा साथीहरूसँग खाएको घुमेको खेलेको सम्झन्छु। तर वास्तवमै भन्ने हो रमाइलो र खुशी त्यति बेला महशुश हुँदो रहेछ जब कसैलाई निस्वार्थ भावनाले सहयोग गरिन्छ। यस्को मतलव यो होइन कि मलाई घर परिवार साथीभाइको याद आउँदैन। याद अवश्य आउँछ!

धन्यवाद दिन चाहन्छु न्यायिक संसार र टेभेललाई जस्ले ममा यो महत्त्वपूर्ण सिकाईको बोध गरायो। शहरमै यदी म बसेको भए म त्यहीको व्यस्त जीवनमा भुल्थे होला अनि छिमेक मै के भइरहेको छ मलाई मतलव हुन्नथियो होला।

तपाईं पनि अरूलाई स्वयम् सेवाको भावनाले खुशी गराउनुहोस्। दैनिक नभए हप्तामा १ पटक अझ भ्याउनु हुन्न महिनामा १ पटक नभए वर्षमा १ पटक। जीवन सार्थक गर्न कुनै ठूलो कार्य गर्नुपर्दैन सुरूवात सानो कदमबाट नै हुन्छ।

उक्त्त कागतीको खाल्डो मेरो यो हप्तामा ११औं खाल्डो हो र संस्थाको ४००औं !!!!

As i am home for celebrating tihar one of the greatest festivals of hindus and my favourite,
i come with more awakening.I am back home with more sense of responsibility. My
responsibility towards the community that i’m starting to work with, “Community in BETHAN!”
Before coming home for celebrating tihar, we had a session regarding community feeling.
During that session only, i happened to think about how we have so much responsbility
towards the community and its development.

The session in our LTS(Long Term Service ) residential training house was for us to think
and discuss about the three main aspects of how-

  • we feel being Responsible
  • we felt as a Part of community and
  • we find Meaning in our work in community

Flashback started in my mind and all actions started coming reversed.

Image

The arrival at “Dahu”
was a warm welcome by the community people with garlands tikas and flowers and in their
traditional greeting “LHASO; Phyafulla”. They expressed us how happy they were to see all of
the international and national fellows and thanked us for being there, despite the face that
the village is a rural place to be in. All of the people were hopeful that we would do
something great for them. And with that hope sense of  was born .That was the
first time when i perceived the sense of responsibility. It then started intensifying when
we talked to the people on the way, in the house we stayed and in the community meeting at
Dahu, Bhawasa and Majhi village.

Image

Similarly, while we were visiting and observing the village areas the next day, people from
community gave us Pomello, almonds and lots of other fruits for free. We were completely
strangers to them and they gave us those fruits. I paused and thougt for a second – if it
was my neighbourhood in Kathmandu- not even a single leaf from the plants would be given to
strangers let alone the fruits! At that moment i felt as i was also the part of community,
so that was why they offered us fruits.

Image

And finding a meaning to our community development work in Bethan is something that’s
connected with both of the above things- being responsible and feeling as a part of
community. One of our international fellows said- it is P(part of community) R
(Responsbility) = Meaning , which i see as a very good reflection. Both of these aspects (P
and R) combine together and will give a meaning to our work in Bethan. we have expectations
of what we can give to the community people there and they have expectations from us of what
we will be giving them. And if these expectations match up then of course we will find a
meaning to our work there. For this to happen, we, the national and internationals along
with the staffs will work hard and achieve it!

we go to work in Bethan next week and we internalised all of these aspects which was
meaningful and helpful. warmly and heartly thanx to Esther and Gilli for having this
wonderful session of community feeling 🙂

Lastly, but not the least- HAPPY TIHAR everyone!! 🙂
