.PEACE ON EARTH.

By Surjeet Kalsey

No More War!
Common people are being killed
everyday everywhere in the world
Paris, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan,
Egypt, Israel, India and Pakistan
name any country –
not the rulers, not the policy makers
not the order holders, not the rulers!
This is not the war of eye-for-eye even
This is a war waged by an intoxicated
blind power of one country to hold
its power over other countries
to deplete their wealth and
to bleed their resources and to sell their
own firearms and ammunition, tanks
machine guns and expensive war jets.
It is a war of world market of war toys!
War kills innocent people – children, women
old civilians and hundreds of soldiers!
And no one is listening that
War leaves millions mothers heart broken
and makes millions widows and orphans
and brings heart wrenching disasters
and sickening poverty and diseases.
The world was listening when he said:
“We Can” when came in power
the world was energized with his two words
as the world was listening his voice.
But why can’t Obama say – “No More War”
to bring PEACE on this earth!

Because war is a profitable business
doesn’t matter how many innocent people
are being sacrificed every day.

One Zero Zero Justice – Komagata Maru!

It is going to be a century soon
Komagata Maru, a mighty ship
From the West appeared
on the surface of the ocean
in 1914 sometimes in June
near Vancouver’s sea shore
with 376 Indians were on board.

After a long sea sickening journey
their faces lit up they felt thrilled
and their hearts started dancing
once they saw the birds were chirping,
the air was fragrant with vegetation
and a glimpse of soil was shining there!
The tardiness of the long journey
disappeared for a moment

The next moment all the glow
Turned yellow when they saw
the troops holding their guns
towards the ship ordering them
to return right away in the same
waters they came from.

The starved, restless, sleepless
Tormented passengers of
the Komagata Maru were sent back
after 75 days’ legal battle arguing over
the legitimacy and illegitimacy of
human lives in distress, hunger and sickness.
Most passengers when reached Calcutta
at Bujbuj Ghat shore were shot dead by the
British-Indian forces to win over humanity
and to punish those who defied the rule
they rule supposed to be giving equal right
and equal British status to all their subjects
no matter where they go!

A century is a long time,
one zero zero years,
it took that long
to the Canadian justice to bring
the change by using their
thousands intellectual officers
administrators, law makers and
spending millions of dollars at last
to learn how to treat people
as humans with respect and dignity!
Understanding brings Peace!

Mother Earth –Golden Wheat!

Mother earth, I bow my head
putting lotuses on your sacred feet!
You raise us with dignity and grace
by giving us food, water
and warmth in your embrace.

Earth weeps when it sees
tonnes of tonnes wheat
do not go to those mouths
of millions hungry children
but it gets ruined burned with
the unseasonal torrential rain
under the naked sky
We the unthankful children of yours
let it happen and do not save it
from this natural disaster.

The earth – the rich soil of
my land of five rivers: Punjab
irrigated with these waters and
with farmworkers’ blood and sweat
gives us golden wheat and paddy
in abundance in our fields.
The golden ripe crops get
destroyed and ruined in the rain
outside under the weeping sky –
The wheat is grown enough
to feed the whole India and
to keep the hunger away.
But is it God’s will or man’s that
poor and hungry will have to
stay poor and hungry for ever!

Farmworkers and consumers shed tears
Rich and politicians do not see the tears!
The deaf and dumb rulers pamper
their white elephant pets- high officials
with expensive cars for joy riding!
Instead of building storages for grains
Why do hungry and the poor have to wait
until the full stomachs are being over-fed?

The farmers have to watch with their
hearts bleeding, how the enormous tonnes
of wheat being wasted in the markets
on the streets under the naked sky?
Where is the father of the nation today!
O mother! Peace be with you.
No one is there to protect you.

One Zero Zero Struggle – Women!

Women’s struggle continues non-stop
to earn equality, respect and dignity!
March on! March on!

100 years of struggle,
women of the world
keeping alive struggle
for equality, respect and dignity!
Yet we could not reach our destination
there are thorns and stones on the path
our feet bleed get blisters endlessly we march!
March on! March on!

100 years sufferings, a century long history
continues and women suffer and sacrifice
their lives to get free from stigmas, prejudices
and offerings of humiliation from their own.

The morning which we visioned has not come!
The sun which is our own has not shown yet!
The air in which we can breathe is not free yet!
Struggle continues. Peace be with us!
March on! March On!

 ਰੰਗ-ਮੰਡਲ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਕੁਝ ਕਵਿਤਾਵਾਂ

.ਰੰਗ-ਰਸ-ਸੁਗੰਧ

ਕਾਇਨਾਤ ਦੇ ਰੰਗ ਹ੍ਹ੍ਜ਼ਾਰਾਂ

ਬ੍ਰਹਿਮੰਡ ਦੇ ਕੈਨਵਸ ਉੱਤੇ

ਦੂਰ ਦਿੱਸਹਦੇ ਤੱਕ ਫੈਲੇ ਹੋਏ

ਕਦੇ ਸੂਰਜ ਨੂੰ ਉਦੈ ਕਰਦੇ

ਰੰਗ ਦੇਂਦੇ ਅੰਬਰ ਨੂੰ ਲਾਲ

ਕਦੇ ਚੰਨ ਦਾ ਮੁੱਖੜਾ ਢੱਕ ਲੈਂਦੇ

ਚਿੱਟੇ ਸਲੇਟੀ ਬਦਲਾਂ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ!

ਰੰਗਾਂ ਦੀ ਰੁਮਾਂਚਿਤ ਬਾਰਿਸ਼ ਵਿਚ

ਤਨ ਮਨ ਰੂਹ ਨੂੰ ਭਿੱਜ ਜਾਣ ਦਿੳੁ!

ਅਹਿਸਾਸ ਤੋਂ ਉਣੇ ਸ਼ਬਦਾਂ ਵਿਚ

ਸੂਖਮ ਬੋਲਾਂ ਦਾ ਰਸ ਘੁਲ ਜਾਣ ਦਿਉ!

ਸੁਗੰਧੀਆਂ ਨਾਲ ਭਰੀਆਂ ਪੌਣਾਂ ‘ਚੋਂ 

ਕੁਦਰਤ ਦਾ ਮਧੁਰ ਸੰਗੀਤ ਸੁਣੋ

ਮਨ ਨੂੰ ਥੋੜਾ ਮੁਗਧ ਹੋ ਜਾਣ ਦਿਉ!

ਰੰਗ-ਮੰਡਲ ‘ਚੋਂ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਕੁਝ ਰੰਗ

ਸ਼ਬਦਾਂ ਦੀ ਮਾਂਗ ਸਜਾਏੀ ਜਾਏ

ਤ੍ਰੈ-ਗੁਣ ਰੰਗ-ਰਸ-ਸੁਗੰਧ ਦੇ

ਸੂਖਮ ਭਾਵੀ ਅਹਿਸਾਸ ਨਾਲ

ਅੱਖਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਰੂਹ ਰੁਸ਼ਨਾਏੀ ਜਾਏ!

*****

ਰੰਗ ਉਮੀਦ

ਰੂਹ ਦੇ ਸਾਰੇ ਰੰਗ ਸਮੇਟੀ

ਤੱਪਦੇ ਮਾਰੂਥਲ ਵਿਚ ਭੁੱਜਦੀ

ਯੁਗਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਇਕਵਾਸੀ ਪਏੀ

ਰੰਗ-ਉਮੀਦ ਦਾ ਸੁਨਹਿਰੀ ਲਿਬਾਸ ਪਾ

ਦਰਗਾਹ ਤੇਰੀ ਮੈਂ ਪਹੁੰਚੀ!

ਕਿਰਮਚੀ ਰੰਗ ਵਿਚ ਭਿੱਜਿਆ ਬੋਲ

ਸੁਨਿਹਰੀ ਰੇਤ ਪਿਆਸੀ ਤੋਂ ਲੰਘਿਆ

ਨੀਲ ਦਿਰਆ ਦਾ ਸੁੱਚਾ ਨੀਰ

ਮਖ਼ਮਲੀ ਕਰ ਗਿਆ ਸਾਰੀ ਧਰਤੀ

ਪਿਆਸੇ ਥੱਲ ਬੰਨ੍ਹਾਏੀ ਧੀਰ!

 

ਕਾਲੀ ਸੰਘਣੀ ਧੁੰਦ ਚੀਰ ਗੂੰਜੀ ਆਵਾਜ਼

ੳੁਠਾਂਗਾ ਇਸੇ ਥੱਲ ਮਾਰੂ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਨਾ ਹੋ ੳੁਦਾਸ

ਬਣ ਸੰਘਣਾ ਬੱਦਲ ਸਾਵਣ ਦੇ ਵਾਂਗ ਛੜਾਕੇ

ਪਿਆਸੇ ਮਾਰੂਥਲ ਤੇ ਵਰ੍ਹ ਜਾਵਾਂਗਾ

ਬਣ ਮਹਿਕ ਸਜੱਰੀ ਬਹਾਰ ਦੀ ਛਾ ਜਾਵਾਂਗਾ

ਪੱਥਰਾਂ ਦੇ ਆਪਾਰ ਬੁਲੰਦੀ ਤਬੂਤਾਂ ਸੰਗ ਲਿਪਟ

ਹਵਾਵਾਂ ਦੇ ਸਾਹਾਂ ਵਿਚ ਖੁਸ਼ਬੂ ਬਣ ਘੁਲ ਜਾਵਾਂਗਾ!

ਨਾ ਦੇਖ ਬੀਤੇ ਵਕਤ ਦੀਅਾਂ ਪੈੜਾਂ ਵੱਲ

ਦੇਖ ਅਗਾਂਹ ਉਸ ਸੁਪਨੇ ਦੀ ਤਬੀਰ ਆਪਣੀ

ਧੜਕ ਉਠੇ ਗੀ ਪੈਰਾਂ ਤਲੇ ਸੁਨਿਹਰੀ ਰੇਤ ਮੁੜ

ਨੀਲ ਭੰਵਰ ਵਿਚ ਠੱਲ ਪਵੇਗੀ ਮੁੜ ਕਿਸ਼ਤੀ ਆਪਣੀ!

 

ਯੁਗਾਂ ਦਾ ਪੈਂਡਾ ਸਿਮਟ ਜਾਵੇਗਾ

ਧੜਕਦੇ ਹੁਣ ਦੇ ਇਸ ਪਲ ਵਿਚ

ਨੱਚ ਉਠਣਗੇ ਉਮੀਦ ਦੇ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾਂ ਰੰਗ

ਸੋਨੇ ਵਾਂਗ ਲਿਸ਼ਕਦੀ ਰੇਤ ਦੀ ਹਿੱਕ ਵਿਚ!

ਤਲਿਸਮੀ ਵੱਡ-ਆਕਾਰੀ ਪਿਰਾਮਿਡਾਂ ਦੇ

ਸੁਨਿਹਰੀ ਲਾਲ ਤੇ ਕਾਲੇ ਪੱਥਰ ਮੁੜ

ਜਗਮਗ ਜਗਮਗ ਕਰ ਉਠਣਗੇ

ਪੰਜ ਹਜ਼ਾਰ  ਤੋਂ ਵੀ ਅਗਾਂਹ ਤੱਕ

ਕਏੀ ਹਜ਼ਾਰ ਸਦੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ ਦੁਨੀਆ ਤੱਕ

ਮਾਣਮੱਤੇ ਇਸੇ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਸਿਰਕੱਢ ਚਮਕਦੇ ਰਹਿਣਗੇ!

  • “Hatred ever kills, love never dies; such is the vast difference between the two.”
  • “Hate the sin and not the sinner”.
  • “Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

  • “I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for Unity, Love and Peace.”
  • “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

PEACE: Mahatma Gandhi

.2 October: A day in history a great man ..

.Mahatma Gandhiji’s bhajan in English:

A god Vishnu-like human being is the one who feels pain of others

And does not become proud by being kind to sorrows of others!

All are good people in the universe, the one who does not slander anyone

has firm control over his words, body and mind,

blessed is the mother who gives birth to such a son!

The one who has made up his mind to follow the path to renunciation

never engages in the worldly love and greed

whose mind meditates on the holy name of Rama

As all the holy places of pilgrimage are within him indeed!

The one who is without greed and deceit,

and has resolved his emotions of lust and anger

Lord Narsihma projects his vision through such a man

and bestows salvation upon all his generations to come!

Gandhi

PEACE POEM

Mahatma Gandhiji’s Bhajan for Peace in Hindi

वैष्णव जन तो तेने कहिये जे पीड पराई जाणे रे,

पर दु:खे उपकार करे तोये मन अभिमान न आणे रे,

सकल लोकमां सहुने वंदे निंदा न करे केनी रे,

वाच काछ मन निश्चल राखे धन धन जननी तेनी रे,

समदृष्टि ने तृष्णा त्यागी, परस्त्रीजेने मात रे,

जिह्वा थकी असत्य न बोले, परधन नव झाले हाथ रे,

मोह माया व्यापे नहि जेने, दृढ़ वैराग्य जेना मनमां रे,

रामनाम सुताली लागी, सकल तीरथ तेना तनमां रे,

वणलॊभी ने कपट रहित जे, काम क्रोध निवार्या रे,

भणे नरसैयॊ तेनु दरसन करतां, कुण एको तेर तार्या रे ॥

Happiness:  Harmony of what you think, what you say, and what you do.

socxI, kihxI qy krnI ivc iekswrqw ^uSI hY[

Faith: Must not lose faith in humanity. There is good in everybody it is sometimes shadowed by evil thoughts, assumptions and circumstances.

Peace: When there is no war, no killings, no blood-shed.

War Inflicts injuries to body, mind and soul. An act of violence leaves victims in mental and physical pain.

War violence and terrorism destroy a country’s people, wealth and heritage in the same way as used to be in jungle living.

Primitive thought of war still governs the new technology of war. Man’s brain has not improved since time immemorial, thus terrorism, war, violence are still parts of human mind.
