आदरणीय मर्यादा पुरषोत्तम राम,

आप सर्वज्ञानी, सर्वभूत और सर्वव्यापी हैं !!

जैसे की आपको ज्ञात है भारत के सर्वोत्तम न्यायालय ने आपके अयोध्या में जन्मस्थल को लेकर पक्ष और विपक्ष की सारी दलीलें सुन ली हैं और शायद एक महीने के भीतर अपना फैसला सुनायेंगे.

आप जानते ही हैं की क्या फैसला होने वाला है, जो की अधिकारिक रूप से आने के बाद महीनों तक चर्चा का विषय रहेगा और निश्चित ही मील का पत्थर साबित होगा.

मेरा आपसे बस यह निम्नलिखित निवेदन है की :

  • दो सदी से भी ज्यादा पुराने इस विवाद का अब हमेशा के लिए सुलटारा हो जाना चाहिए.
  • मंदिर – मस्जिद के नाम से अब लोगों का क़त्लेआम बंद होना चाहिए.
  • आपके नाम पर लोगों ने बहुत वोट मांग लिए अब भाईचारे के नाम पर वोट पढने चाहिए.
  • क्या यह मुमकिन हो सकता की इस फैसले से सब पक्ष संतुष्ट हो जायें.
  • इस फैसले के बाद दुसरे और विवादित स्थलों पर राजनैतिक दल अपनी राजनैतिक रोटियां ना सेक सकें.

आप हमारी आस्था में बसते हो, आप हमारे रोम-रोम में बसते हैं. अब यह कठिन फैसला सर्वोत्तम न्यायालय के पांच न्यायाधीश सुनायेंगे की क्या आप त्रेता युग में इसी निश्चित स्थान पर रावण वध के लिए अवतरित हुए थे !!

भविष्य के गर्भ में क्या छिपा है वह हम मनुष्यों को नहीं मालूम और न ही यह की इस फैसले की हम किस तरह प्रतिक्रिया देंगे. आप से प्रार्थना है की हम सब को विवेक दें और देशहित में, आने वाले इस फैसले को शान्ति और बिना किसी हिंसा से स्वीकारने की शक्ति प्रदान करें !!

आपका अनुयायी,

After years had the chance to watch and enjoy ‘GAVRI’ yesterday at the residence of Shri Raghuveer Singh ji Meena – Ex MP from Udaipur.

I remember as a kid an entire trope of Gavri performers from the nearby village of Badi would perform at our residence. If my memory doesn’t fail me Kuka, Chapliya were the names of some of these local Folk Artists. What really amused us kids then was these men dressed to the hilt as women !!thumbnail (9).jpg

Times flew by, did manage to get a glimpse of Gavri performances being played here or there and yesterday was really up, close and personal.

For the uninitiated Gavri, is a 40-day long festival celebrated in July and September of each year in the Mewar region of Rajasthan. It starts from Rakhi and concludes 9 days after Ganesh Chaturthi. It is an ode to Goddess Gauri – the wife of Lord Shiva thus the name GAVRI, her blessings are invoked at each such enactments.

Only men perform so they even play the characters of women. This is performed by the Tribal community of Mewar – an area that compromises of South Rajasthan.


During the 40-day Gavari season, all players IMG_20190912_131901-01.jpegpractice strict austerities to maintain reverent contact with the living earth and the immanent spirit. They avoid not only sex, alcohol and meat, but also shoes, beds, bathing, and eating greens (which might harm insect life). They eat only a single meal each day during the season. They also cannot go back to their homes during these 40 days no matter what the situation demands.



I am sharing some of the pictures of yesterday’s performance.

The government or for that matter even us, need to share some responsibility to protect and promote these local traditions or it will be matter of time our new generation will only read about them in their textbooks and newspapers.

Karma Anyone ??

11253888_10153291131002992_2314295233860945663_nThe other day I came across this picture on a social media sites and was quite intrigued by it !!

What is Karma ?? Does it even exist?? Or is it just to console ourselves that the guilty or someone who has done harm to us will someday pay for it ??

From what I have gathered and understood in my 38 years on this planet that such thing seldom exist, the comforters tell me the God will make them suffer for their wrongs and I shall see them suffer. My retribution will be provided for!!

I think having crossed almost half of my designated time on earth and the remainder I am sure can’t be anything more than then what has already been wasted away; the Day of Judgment is nowhere near in sight. What use is the judgment if I am not alive to see it delivered? I am no saint and the concept of forgiveness does not work for me, revenge and retribution is what I seek and want the almighty to provide it!! I am a true blue Scorpio for I shall not forget the deceit, lies, theft at my expense.

So God, I want you to act fast and swift cause there aren’t too many people I hold a grudge against and so Plz give them the slow therapy for they need to realize the ill-will and hatred they have mustered over the years. For why should I be the only one where the infamous and ambiguous Karma works instantly, one wrong move and I pay for it immediately? So if you are delivering it instantly in my case,  u better make it smooth for me later in life (whatever is left of it BTW) cause I am definitely not up for any more of this nonsense !!

So Karma you better get on your job like NOW !! Or this Monday evening rants are going to get shriller and worse !!

To end quote the iconic lines form Iqbaal sb Shikwa :

ये शिकायत नहीं हैं उनके खज़ाने मामूर,

नहीं महफ़िल में जिन्हें बात करने का शुअर,

क़हर तो ये है की काफ़िर को मिलें हूर-ओ-क़सूर,

और बेचारे मुसलमान को फ़कत वैयदा-ऐ-हूर,

अब वो अल्ताफ नहीं हम पे इनायत नहीं,

बात ये क्या है की पहली से मदरात नहीं ….

(We do not complain that their treasures are full,

Who are not in possession of even basic social graces?

Outrageous that infidel are rewarded with Houris and palaces,

And the poor Muslims are placated with only promise of Houris,

We have been deprived of the former graces and favors

What is the matter, we are deprived of the former honors.)
