All breaths rely on them

Raushan Shridhar

They can’t be harmed

Sun cannot un-colour them,
Who colour our land.

All breaths rely on them
Till their last breath.

Pain of theirs
for us is no pain – we have lost those views
running the race of gain.

They are trees and brooks,
and Gutter can be their other name,

sadly, they exist beneath the civil realm.

इन्द्रधनुष

जब समय और समाज इस तरह होते जाएँ, जैसे अभी हैं तो साहित्य ज़रूरी दवा है. इंद्रधनुष इस विस्तृत मरुस्थल में थोड़ी जगह हरी कर पाए, बचा पाए, नई बना पाए, इतनी ही आकांक्षा है.
