आसमां धूसर
मेघों का गर्जन रूदन
बादलों की कोख़ फाड़ कर
ये जल है बरसा, या छलके
स्वर्गवासियों के आँसूं !

भूख प्यास से
मार काट से
अनदेखे अनजाने
ईश्वरों के वर्चस्व की लड़ाई से
सराबोर यह धरती !

काश, धूल जाएँ आज
इन बरसातों की बाढ़ में
अलग अलग वो लाल रंग के
ख़ूनों के छींटें धब्बे, और
नफरतों के एक से सिलसिले !

I am an alumni of the University of Delhi. An administration and human resources professional, I was associated in the past with Embassy of Israel and with the UKaid's development programs n New Delhi. An emerging writer, poet, blogger, with interests in reading/writing short stories, I discovered my flair for writing during a career break. My short story "The Domestic Maid' features on an online literary community 'New Asian Writing'. 'Epileptic', a short love story, has been published by Nivasini Publishers in their 2015 anthology, 'Celebrating India - Love Without Borders'. My Hindi poem 'Navnirman' has been shortlisted or publishing in 2017 in two anthologies by Authorspress and Nivasini Publishers. I share my opinions on social/political causes of human interest on 'saddahaq.com', a social journalism platform.
