MRA Litrature / Please Pass the Biscuits
« on: June 01, 2017, 08:44:49 PM »
Please Pass the Biscuits


When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then.  And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work.  On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad.  I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!  Yet all my dad did was reach for his Biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school.

I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits.  And I'll never forget what he said:  "Honey, I love burned biscuits."
 
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned.  He wrapped me in his arms and said, "Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she's real tired.  And besides... A burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"

You know, life is full of imperfect things... And imperfect people.  I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.  What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each others differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

So...please pass me a biscuit. And yes, the burned one will do just fine!

 
Life is too short to wake up with regrets... Love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't.


ENJOY LIFE NOW - IT HAS AN EXPIRATION DATE!

हसो और हसाओ / Is it bad to be Alone

Is it bad to be alone


Is it bad to be alone?
To feel the best in midnight air?
To see the light in a fallen star?
To hear the words of love,
Lost in the cold winds of the night before?

Is it bad to be on your own?
To feel the sweet embrace
Every time you go to sleep?
To see the truth in people's eyes?
To hear the sound of silence?

Is it bad to want someone?
To feel his hands around you,
Wanting that moment could last forever?
To see the infinity in his eyes?
To hear the angel's sing?

In that way, I want to be alone forever…

Ae Zindagi


Ae zindagi jab se tumse mulaakaat hue meri,
Yun laga ki khud se khud ki pehchan hue meri,
Mil ke tujhse phir kabhi kisi aur ki chahat na hue......

Din guzarte rahe aur zamaane ho gaye,
Manzil hai ek aur do raahi chal pade,
Jab se thaama hai tumne mere haatho ko,
To phir kisi aur ke saath ki chahat na hue........

Mehfilo me bhi aur tanhaaiyon mein bhi,
Bas har pal tu aur tere khayal hi yaad aate rahe,
Khushiyo mein ya dard bhari purwaiyon mein bhi.......
Jabse tumne mujhe kiya hai shamil
To kisi aur ki hone ki chaahat na hue........

Iss dil ne to maangi hai bas ek dua,
Tu yun hi karti rahe sada pyar .........
Jab se tumne mujh par apna dil luta diya hai ,
Kisi aaur ke pyar ki bhi ab chahat na rahi........

Pa liya hai maine bhi ab to woh sukun,
Ji liya hai har woh pal jisme thi meri zindagi basi,
Baad usske to ab zindagi kya hai maut ki bhi chahat na rahi ....!!!

College Gender Gap: Women Earn More Degrees AND Get Special Treatment

PJ MEDIA



Men may make more money than women on average, but women earn more college degrees, and have done so since 1982. Even so, the 177 women's centers on American college campuses show no sign of closing. Ostensibly pushing for "gender equity," these centers seem to have achieved their purpose. If they continue to advocate for women over men, that becomes discrimination.

According to the Department of Education, women in the Class of 2017 earned 141 college degrees at all levels for every 100 men (up from 139 last year), leaving a 659,000 college degree gap (up from 610,000 last year). But despite this growing degree gap, there are at least 177 women's centers still operating on college campuses across the country, some receiving public funding, with the stated goals of "promoting (or advocating) gender equity" and promoting "women's success."

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI)'s Mark Perry broke down the numbers — and the hypocrisy. This May, women earned 164 associates degrees for every 100 degrees men earned (up from 154:100 last year). They also earned 135 bachelor's degrees for every 100 degrees earned by men, 140 master's degrees for every 100 male degrees, and 109 doctoral degrees for every 100 earned by men.

Women overtook men step by step over the past 39 years. In 1978, they took the majority of associate's degrees for the first time. The bachelor's degrees majority went female in 1982, with master's degrees following in 1987. Since 2007, women have also earned more doctoral degrees than men.

Finally, the gender disparity is only expected to increase. By 2026, women are projected to earn 150 college degrees for every 100 degrees earned by men, and the gap increases for associate's degrees (187 women for every 100 men) and master's degrees (140 women for every 100 men).

As Perry noted, men are now the "second sex" in higher education. But it also gets worse. Women aren't just the majority of degree-earners, they also receive special treatment as if they were the struggling minority.

The University of Minnesota Women’s Center aims to "advance gender equity," by educating and inspiring "feminist leaders." The University of Virginia Women's Center (founded in 1989 — seven years after women gained the majority of bachelor's degrees for the first time) aims to provide "programs and services that advocate gender equity."

The Women's Center at Duke University exists to help "every woman at Duke become self-assured with a kind of streetwise savvy that comes from actively engaging with the world. We welcome men and women alike who are committed to gender equity and social change." What about increasing the number of men who get college degrees? Is that kind of "social change" welcome?

As AEI's Mark Perry noted, the publicly stated goal of almost every Women's Center is "gender equity," but they seem unconcerned with the gender disparity favoring women.

"There is also apparently no willingness for any of these women's center to close down even though gender equity in higher education was achieved 35 years ago (for college degrees), and there is no question that women are now much more successful than men in terms of both completing college and earning degrees at all levels from associate's degrees to doctoral degrees," Perry wrote.

He laid out the "gender disparity" hypocrisy in no uncertain terms.

Perry explained "Rule A" of gender equality: "Any outcome where women statistically represent less than 50% of a population (or if the women’s softball field bleachers are inferior to the boy’s baseball field bleachers) is a case of gender inequity, sexism, and/or discrimination that must be addressed with government investigations, awareness, public funding for women's centers," etc. (emphasis his).

But it gets really interesting with "Rule B." Perry explained that "any gender imbalance where women represent more than 50% of a population... isn't really gender inequity, or at least it is gender inequity that doesn't really count and can be completely ignored because those statistical gender disparities are a natural outcome of women being more talented than men, or naturally more interested/motivated than men in certain fields of study and careers."

Perhaps now the explanations for why men tend to make more money than women seem less far-fetched. Men are more willing to take "dirty jobs" at odd hours and with inflexible commitments that pay more, while women are statistically more likely to opt for more flexible jobs that allow more time with children. If it is sexism to explain these preferences, then it is equally sexism to explain why women earn more degrees than men in this way.

But the situation is actually much more perverse. Perry provided the example of the University of Michigan-Flint, which gives out three faculty awards that are only open to female faculty members. "In all three cases, these awards blatantly discriminate against male faculty and staff members (men need not apply… cannot apply), and brazenly grant special preferences for female faculty and staff members," the AEI scholar noted.

These awards arguably violate the Michigan Constitution, which explicitly states that public colleges "shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin."

Perry asks, "Can you simultaneously be in favor of: a) gender equality and equal treatment for both genders, and b) special treatment and gender favoritism for female faculty and staff, and still be intellectually and legally consistent?" The answer should be clear to anyone.

"Perhaps the problem is that gender discrimination against men and gender favoritism towards women have become so ingrained, internalized and institutionalized in higher education that most students, faculty, administrators, staff, taxpayers, politicians, alumni and donors don't even see it as a problem when universities discriminate against men and actively promote preferential treatment for women," Perry wrote (emphasis added).

The argument that women are an "oppressed" class is very tempting for those on the Left, and it helps explain the success of shows like Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale," a misogynist dystopia which is nothing at all like modern America, whatever Hillary Clinton might say.

Men's rights activists might be laughed at, but it's not hard to understand their complaints. Men — especially white cisgender men — are villainized and blamed for the injustices of society, struggle in school, and are more likely to lose assets in divorces. Feminists are also waging a relentless "war on boys," using buzz terms like "toxic masculinity." Two photos at the "Women's March" told the story: a girl held a sign reading "girl power," but a boy held a sign reading "boys will be boys good humans."

Some of these complaints may go overboard, but it is quite concerning that colleges still treat women as the oppressed minority when men are really the "second sex" in higher education. It's time for feminists to stop the hypocrisy and stand up for gender equity, not special treatment for women.

Women are MORE dishonest than men: Females more likely to tell every day fibs

EXPRESS



Whether it is throwing a ‘sickie’ to get time off work or making up an excuse to avoid doing something they do not want to do, the fairer sex is the most dishonest.

But while that may paint an unflattering picture, it is not all bad for women are also more likely to bend the truth so they do not hurt someone’s feelings.

The poll of more than 2,100 adults, by the appropriately named herbal tea brand Honest, found men are less likely to fib when it comes to work, health and romance.

For example, 39 per cent of women have feigned illness to miss a day’s work compared to 37 per cent of men.

And one in three female dieters (33 per cent) have cheated on their weight loss regime without telling anyone compared to just 23 per cent of men.

In the world of dating, 37 per cent of women but only 27 per cent of men have made up a fake excuse in order to get out of a date.

But the research also suggests that maybe honesty is not always the best policy as six in ten women (60 per cent) but only 43 per cent of men would say they liked a gift when they didn’t.

Regionally the Welsh are the most honest of the home nations and as Brits get older they become more honest too, particularly in relationships.

Other lies uncovered by the poll show 35 per cent of both men and women have told someone they are on their way when they have not left the house yet.

Nearly six in ten (58 per cent) of both sexes say they are always ‘completely honest’ with their parents and 72 per cent are always honest with their partner.

The survey was conducted to launch the tea which has been on sale in the US for 20 years and the UK introduction will also see the company conduct a regular ‘Honest Index’ including experiments to see how trustworthy the public are.

Seth Goldman, co-founder of the brand, said: “Being able to conduct the Honest Index here after the success we’ve had in the US is really something.”

बेटे  से पिता का सफ़र



बेटे  से पिता का सफ़र बेफिक्री से फिकर का सफ़र
रोने से चुप कराने का सफ़र उत्सुकत्ता से संयम का सफ़र

पहले जो पिता के पीछे छुप जाया करता थी
आज किसी को अपने पीछे में छुपा लेता हैं ।

पहले जो स्कूटर न मिलने पर घर को सर पे उठाया करता था
आज बिना स्कूटर खाना कमाने को मेहनत करता हैं ।

पहले जो छोटी छोटी बातों पे अड़ जाया करता था
आज बो बड़ी बड़ी बातों को मन में  छुपाया करता हैं ।

पहले भाई, दोस्तों से लड़ लिया करता थी
आज उनसे बात करने को भी तरस जाता  हैं ।

पापा पापा कह कर पूरे घर में उछला करता था
आज पापा  सुन के धीरे से मुस्कुराया करता हैं ।

10 बजे उठने पर भी जल्दी उठ जाना होता था
आज 7 बजे उठने पर भी लेट हो जाया करता हैं ।

खुद के शौक पूरे करते करते ही साल गुजर जाता था
आज खुद के लिए एक कपडा लेने को तरस जाया करता है ।

पूरे दिन फ्री होके भी बिजी बताया करता था
अब पूरे दिन काम करके भी काम चोर कहलाया करता हैं ।

एक एग्जाम के लिए पूरे साल पढ़ा करता था
अब हर दिन बिना तैयारी के एग्जाम दिया करता हैं ।

ना जाने कब किसी की बेटा किसी पिता बन गया ।
कब बेटे से पिता के सफ़र में तब्दील हो गया  ..

बीजेपी को बहुमत से जितने के बाद



बीजेपी को बहुमत से जितने के बाद एक आदमी 16- मई-2014 को ख़ुशी के मारे बेहोश हुआ और सीधा कोमा में चला गया था। लगभग 36महीने कोमा में रहने के बाद कल ही उसे होश आया | होश में आते ही उसने अपने डाक्टर दोस्त से निम्न प्रश्न पूछे ....

1. पुरुषों को बराबरी का अधिकार मिलने के बाद कैसा महसूस हो रहा है

2. IPC 498A का दुरुपयोग करने वाली महिलाओं को अलग जेल में रखा गया है या सबके साथ

3. सभी निर्दोष पुरुषों ने आजाद होने के बाद कितने दिन तक जश्न मनाया

4. महिलाओं को मेंटेनेंस की बजाए नौकरी करके खाने में ज्यादा संतोष मिल रहा है या कुछ नाराज़गी भी है

5. पुरुषों ने अपने आप को डोमेस्टिक विओलेन्स से मुक्ति के लिए अदालत की शरण में जाना स्वीकार किया या आज भी घुटन भारी ज़िन्दगी जी रहे हैं

6. पुरुषों को सभी तरह के अत्याचारों से मुक्त करने वाले नरेंद्र मोदी अभी तक कितने राज्यों में भारतीय जनता पार्टी का शाशन ला चुके हैं

7. पुरुष विरोधी कानून तो खत्म हो गए भविष्य में ऐसे कानून दोबारा न बनाये जा सके इसके लिए मोदी जी ने क्या व्यवस्ता की है


सवाल सुनकर डॉक्टर साहब जो कि मुसलमान थे फुट फुट कर रो पड़े । जब उन्होंने बताया कि मोदी जी ने मुसलमानों पुरुषों के अधिकार छीन लिए तो मरीज का सीना 36 इंच का हो गया यह सोच कर की मोदी जी हिन्दू है और वो हिन्दू होने का फर्ज निभा रहे हैं

आजकल 36 इंच सीने वाले भगत आगरा के पागलखाने में भर्ती हैं क्योंकि हॉस्पिटल से अपने गांव जाते हुए उन्होंने sif/daman का धरना देखा जिसमे पुलिस के द्वारा लाठिया चलाई जा रही थी क्योंकि पुरुष अपने अधिकारों के लिए लड़ रहे थे

मैंने दहेज़ नहीं माँगा


RAMAN RANA@DAMAN WELFARE SOCIETY


साहब मैं थाने नहीं आउंगा,
अपने इस घर से कहीं नहीं जाउंगा,
माना पत्नी से थोडा मन मुटाव था,
सोच में अन्तर और विचारों में खिंचाव था,

पर यकीन मानिए साहब, “मैंने दहेज़ नहीं माँगा ”
मानता हूँ कानून आज पत्नी के पास है,
महिलाओं का समाज में हो रहा विकास है।
चाहत मेरी भी बस ये थी कि माँ बाप का सम्मान हो,

उन्हें भी समझे माता पिता,
न कभी उनका अपमान हो।
पर अब क्या फायदा,
जब टूट ही गया हर रिश्ते का धागा,

यकीन मानिए साहब, “मैंने दहेज़ नहीं माँगा”

परिवार के साथ रहना इसे पसंन्द नहीं,
कहती यहाँ कोई रस, कोई आनन्द नही,
मुझे ले चलो इस घर से दूर, किसी किराए के आशियाने में,
कुछ नहीं रखा माँ बाप पर प्यार बरसाने में,

हाँ छोड़ दो, छोड़ दो इस माँ बाप के प्यार को,
नहीं मांने तो याद रखोगे मेरी मार को,
बस बूढ़े माता पिता का ही मोह,
न छोड़ पाया मैं अभागा,

यकींन मानिए साहब, “मैंने दहेज़ नहीं माँगा ”

फिर शुरू हुआ वाद विवाद माँ बाप से अलग होने का,
शायद समय आ गया था, चैन और सुकून खोने का,
एक दिन साफ़ मैंने पत्नी को मना कर दिया,
न रहुगा माँ बाप के बिना ये उसके दिमाग में भर दिया।
बस मुझसे लड़ कर मोहतरमा मायके जा पहुंची,
2 दिन बाद ही पत्नी के घर से मुझे धमकी आ पहुंची,
माँ बाप से हो जा अलग, नहीं सबक सीखा देगे,
क्या होता है दहेज़ कानून तुझे इसका असर दिखा देगें।
परिणाम जानते हुए भी हर धमकी को गले में टांगा,

यकींन माँनिये साहब, “मैंने दहेज़ नहीं माँगा ”

जो कहा था बीवी ने, आखिरकार वो कर दिखाया,
झगड़ा किसी और बात पर था, पर उसने दहेज़ का नाटक रचाया।
बस पुलिस थाने से एक दिन मुझे फ़ोन आया,
क्यों बे, पत्नी से दहेज़ मांगता है, ये कह के मुझे धमकाया।
माता पिता भाई बहिन जीजा सभी के रिपोर्ट में नाम थे,
घर में सब हैरान, सब परेशान थे,
अब अकेले बैठ कर सोचता हूँ, वो क्यों ज़िन्दगी में आई थी,
मैंने भी तो उसके प्रति हर ज़िम्मेदारी निभाई थी।
आखिरकार तमका मिला हमे दहेज़ लोभी होने का,
कोई फायदा न हुआ मीठे मीठे सपने सजोने का।
बुलाने पर थाने आया हूँ, छूप कर कहीं नहीं भागा,

लेकिन  यकींन  मानिए  साहब, “मैंने दहेज़ नहीं माँगा”

MRA Litrature / पिता केवल पिता है
« on: May 15, 2017, 02:04:02 PM »
पिता केवल पिता है


कल रात एक ऐसा वाकया हुआ जिसने मेरी ज़िन्दगी के कई पहलुओं को छू लिया

करीब 7 बजे होंगे, शाम को मोबाइल बजा ।उठाया तो उधर से रोने की आवाज... मैंने शांत कराया और पूछा कि भाभीजी आखिर हुआ क्या?

उधर से आवाज़ आई.. आप कहाँ हैं??? और कितनी देर में आ सकते हैं?

मैंने कहा - आप परेशानी बताइये।

और "भाई साहब कहाँ हैं...? पिताजी किधर हैं..?" "आखिर हुआ क्या...?"

लेकिन  उधर से केवल एक रट कि "आप आ जाइए", मैंने आश्वाशन दिया कि कम से कम एक घंटा पहुंचने में लगेगा. जैसे तैसे पूरी घबड़ाहट में पहुँचा देखा तो भाई साहब [हमारे मित्र जो जज हैं] सामने बैठे हुए हैं भाभीजी रोना चीखना कर रही हैं 12 साल का बेटा भी परेशान है 9 साल की बेटी भी कुछ नहीं कह पा रही है।

मैंने भाई साहब से पूछा कि "आखिर क्या बात है"???

"भाई साहब कोई जवाब नहीं दे रहे थे "

फिर भाभी जी ने कहा ये देखिये तलाक के पेपर, ये कोर्ट से तैयार करा के लाये हैं, मुझे तलाक देना चाहते हैं,

मैंने पूछा - ये कैसे हो सकता है???. इतनी अच्छी फैमिली है. 2 बच्चे हैं. सब कुछ सेटल्ड है. "प्रथम दृष्टि में मुझे लगा ये मजाक है"

लेकिन मैंने बच्चों से पूछा  दादा जी  किधर है

बच्चों ने बताया पापा ने उन्हें 3 दिन पहले नोएडा के वृद्धाश्रम में शिफ्ट कर दिया है.

मैंने घर के नौकर से कहा। मुझे और भाई साहब को चाय पिलाओ कुछ देर में चाय आई. भाई साहब को बहुत कोशिशें कीं चाय पिलाने की | लेकिन उन्होंने नहीं पी और कुछ ही देर में वो एक "मासूम बच्चे की तरह फूटफूट कर रोने लगे " बोले मैंने 3 दिन से कुछ भी नहीं खाया है. मैं अपनी 61 साल के पिता को कुछ लोगों के हवाले करके आया हूँ.

पिछले साल से मेरे घर में उनके लिए इतनी मुसीबतें हो गईं कि पत्नी (भाभीजी) ने कसम खा ली कि "मैं पिता जी का ध्यान नहीं रख सकती" ना तो ये उनसे बात करती थी
और ना ही मेरे बच्चे बात करते थे. रोज़ मेरे कोर्ट से आने के बाद पिता जी खूब रोते थे नौकर तक भी अपनी मनमानी से व्यवहार करते थे

पिता जी ने 10 दिन पहले बोल दिया.. बेटा तू मुझे ओल्ड ऐज होम में शिफ्ट कर दे. मैंने बहुत कोशिशें कीं पूरी फैमिली को समझाने की, लेकिन किसी ने पिता जी से सीधे मुँह बात नहीं की जब मैं 2 साल का था तब माता जी  की मृत्यु हो गई थी मेहनत करके मुझे पढ़ाया. मुझे इस काबिल बनाया कि आज मैं जज हूँ लोग बताते हैं पिता जी  कभी काम करते वक़्त भी मुझे अकेला नहीं छोड़ती थीं.

उस पिता जी को मैं ओल्ड ऐज होम में शिफ्ट करके आया हूँ पिछले 3 दिनों से मैं अपने पिता जी  के एक-एक दुःख को याद करके तड़प रहा हूँ, जो उसने केवल मेरे लिए उठाये।

मुझे आज भी याद है जब.. "मैं 10th की परीक्षा में अपीयर होने वाला था. पिता जी मेरे साथ रात रात भर बैठे रहते थे".

एक बार पता जी को बहुत फीवर हुआ मैं तभी स्कूल से आया था. उनका शरीर गर्म था, तप रहा था मैंने कहा पापा तुम्हे फीवर है हँसते हुए बोली अभी खाना बना रहा था इसलिए गर्म है

लोगों से उधार माँग कर मुझे दिल्ली विश्वविद्यालय से एलएलबी तक पढ़ाया मुझे ट्यूशन तक नहीं पढ़ाने देते थे कि कहीं मेरा टाइम ख़राब ना हो जाए.   

कहते-कहते रोने लगे..और बोले--"जब ऐसे पिता जी के हम नहीं हो सके तो हम अपने बीबी और बच्चों के क्या होंगे"

हम जिनके शरीर के टुकड़े हैं, आज हम उनको ऐसे लोगों के हवाले कर आये, "जो उनकी आदत, उनकी बीमारी, उनके बारे में कुछ भी नहीं जानते", जब मैं ऐसे पिता जी के लिए कुछ नहीं कर सकता तो मैं किसी और के लिए भला क्या कर सकता हूँ आज़ादी अगर इतनी प्यारी है और पिता जी इतना बोझ लग रहे हैं, तो मैं पूरी आज़ादी देना चाहता हूँ जब मैं बिना माँ के पल गया तो ये बच्चे भी पल जाएंगे बिना बाप के इसीलिए मैं तलाक देना चाहता हूँ।

सारी प्रॉपर्टी इन लोगों के हवाले करके उस ओल्ड ऐज होम में रहूँगा. कम से कम मैं पिता जी के साथ रह तो सकता हूँ। और अगर इतना सब कुछ कर के "पिता जी आश्रम में रहने के लिए मजबूर है", तो एक दिन मुझे भी आखिर जाना ही पड़ेगा पिता जी  के साथ रहते-रहते आदत भी हो जायेगी. पिता जी की तरह तकलीफ तो नहीं होगी.

जितना बोलते उससे भी ज्यादा रो रहे थे

बातें करते करते रात के 12:30 हो गए।

मैंने भाभीजी के चेहरे को देखा. उनके भाव भी प्रायश्चित्त और ग्लानि से भरे हुए थे मैंने ड्राईवर से कहा अभी हम लोग नोएडा जाएंगे। भाभीजी और बच्चे हम सारे लोग नोएडा पहुँचे | बहुत ज़्यादा रिक्वेस्ट करने पर गेट खुला भाई साहब ने उस गेटकीपर के पैर पकड़ लिए, बोले मेरे पिता जी है, मैं उसको लेने आया हूँ

चौकीदार ने कहा क्या करते हो साहब

भाई साहब ने कहा मैं जज हूँ

उस चौकीदार ने कहा "जहाँ सारे सबूत सामने हैं तब तो आप अपने पिता के साथ न्याय नहीं कर पाये, औरों के साथ क्या न्याय करते होंगे साहब"।

इतना कहकर हम लोगों को वहीं रोककर वह अन्दर चला गया |  अन्दर से एक महिला आई जो वार्डन थी.

उसने बड़े कातर शब्दों में कहा 2 बजे रात को आप लोग ले जाके कहीं मार दें, तो  मैं अपने ईश्वर को क्या जबाब दूंगी..?

मैंने सिस्टर से कहा  आप विश्वास करिये ये लोग बहुत बड़े पश्चाताप में जी रहे हैं

अंत में किसी तरह उनके कमरे में ले गईं कमरे में जो दृश्य था, उसको कहने की स्थिति में मैं नहीं हूँ.

केवल एक फ़ोटो जिसमें पूरी फैमिली है और वो भी पिता जी के बगल में, जैसे किसी बच्चे को सुला रखा है. मुझे देखा तो उनको लगा कि बात न खुल जाए लेकिन जब मैंने कहा हम लोग आप को लेने आये हैं, तो पूरी फैमिली एक दूसरे को पकड़ कर रोने लगी आसपास के कमरों में और भी बुजुर्ग थे सब लोग जाग कर बाहर तक ही आ गए. उनकी भी आँखें नम थीं

कुछ समय के बाद चलने की तैयारी हुई. पूरे आश्रम के लोग बाहर तक आये. किसी तरह हम लोग आश्रम के लोगों को छोड़ पाये. सब लोग इस आशा से देख रहे थे कि शायद उनको भी कोई लेने आए, रास्ते भर बच्चे और भाभी जी तो शान्त रहे

लेकिन भाई साहब और पिताजी एक दूसरे की भावनाओं को अपने पुराने रिश्ते पर बिठा रहे थे घर आते-आते करीब 3:45 हो गया.

मैं भी चल दिया लेकिन रास्ते भर वो सारी बातें और दृश्य घूमते रहे

पिता केवल पिता है

पिता हमारी ताकत है उसे बेसहारा न होने दें

He was pruning  the plants.. sitting in the posh arbour of ******international school, heat and dust didn't seem to affect him.

"Ganga das,principal ma'am wants to see you right now"

The last two words of peon had lots of emphasis on them,trying to make it sound like an urgency. He quickly got up,washed and wiped his hands and headed towards principal's room. The walk from the garden to the office seemed never ending, his heart was almost jumping out of his chest..he was trying all the permutation n combination, figuring out as to what has gone wrong that she wants to see him urgently...he was a sincere worker and never shirked away from his duties...

*knock knock*...

"Madam,you called me?"

"Come inside..." an authoritative voice laced with crispness made him further nervous,

Salt n pepper hair, tied neatly in a french knot,a designer sari-sober and very classic,glasses resting on the bridge of her nose... She pointed out towards a paper kept on the table...

"Read this"

B..but ma'am I am an illiterate person,I can not read English.

Ma'am please forgive me if I have done anything wrong...give me another chance ...I am forever indebted to you for allowing my daughter to study in this school ,free of cost...I could have never ever dreamt of such a life for my child.......   And he broke down almost trembling,,

"Hold on,you assume a lot...we allowed your daughter because she is very bright and you have been our sincere worker..let me call a teacher in,she will read it out and translate it to you...this is written by your daughter and I want you to read this"

Soon enough the teacher was called and she started reading it,,,translating each line in Hindi... It read-

"Today we are asked to write about Mother's Day ... I belong to a village in Bihar ,a village where medical and education still seem like a far fetched dream.many women die every now and then while giving birth. My mother was one of the too,she could not even hold me in her arms. My father was the first person to hold me..or perhaps the only person.every one was sad..as I had "eaten up" my own mother.

My dad was instantly asked to remarry but he refused. My grandparents forced him by giving all logical, illogical and emotional reasons but he didn't budge. They threatened him to remarry else he will be disowned... He didn't think twice...he left everything,his acres of land..a good living,comfortable house,cattles and everything that counts for a good lifestyle in a village. He came to this city with absolutely nothing but me in his arms.life was tough,he worked hard day and night..raised me with tender love and utmost care.

Now I understand why suddenly he developed a dislike for things that I would love to eat but there was only one left in the platter....he would say that he hates eating it and I would finish it considering that he does not like it....but as I grew older I realised the reason and what sacrifice is all about.
He gave me the best possible comforts  beyond his capacity. This school gave him a shelter,respect and the biggest gift-an admission to his daughter...
If love and care  defines a mother...then my father fits in there, If compassion defines a mother,my father fits in well in that category too, If sacrifice defines a mother,my father dominates that category . So in nut shell..if a mother is made of love,care sacrifice and compassion...MY FATHER IS THE BEST MOTHER ON EARTH THEN.

On Mother's Day,I would like to wish my father for being the best parent on earth...I salute him and say it with pride that the hardworking gardener working in this school is my father.

I know I will fail this test after my teacher reads this but this would be a very small price one would pay towards an ode to the selfless love of my father. Thanks"

This was a silence in the room...one could only hear soft sobbing of Ganga das....harsh sun could not wet his clothes with sweat but soft words of his daughter had soaked his chest with tears....he was standing there with hands folded..

He took the paper from teacher's hands...held it close to his heart and broke down.

Principal got up..offered him a chair,glass of water and said something.....strangely the crispness of her voice was taken over by warmth n sweetness....

"Ganga das..your daughter is given 10/10 marks for this essay...this is the best essay ever written about Mother's Day  in the history of this school.we are having the Mother's Day gala event day after tomorrow and the school authority has decided to invite you as the chief guest...for the event...this is to honour all the love and sacrifice a man can do to raise his children...to show that you do not have to be a woman to be the perfect parent...n most importantly this is to reinforce/appreciate/acknowledge the strong  belief of your daughter in you,,,to make her feel proud..to make the entire school feel proud that we have the best parent on earth as stated by your daughter..,,you are a true Gardner,,,who is not only looking after  the garden but also nurturing the most precious flower of your life in such a beautiful way....

So Ganga das will you be our chief guest for the event?"
