La commune de Paris

After brutal defeat, Paris was under siege;
The National Guard was formed for peace.
Martin and Thomas were shot together;
Auguste Blanqui was elected as Leader.
''Republican tricolore'' was pushed aside;
With high morals, they decided to fight .

For two million people, it was like haven;
Separation of religions, vote for women.
Gender equality was granted by decree'
Lemel and Adndre made a new history.
''Red Virgin of Montmartre'' stepped ahead;
A female battalion emerged from the shade.

National assembly played the tricky game;
Marquis de Galliffet led the brutal shame!
Thiers managed to prevent all information
Narbonne was crushed with determination.
Conspiracy was rooted deep in the hell;
POWs were released from various jail.

Fierce fighting went on in the street;
Oh! It was very brutal bloody week.
Labau Barracks and Luxembourg garden!
These were the notorious sites of slaughter
50 thousand killed in 'La Semaine Sanglante';
Yes! Yes ! They all were excellent fighters.
Some flew to Italy, Spain and United states;
For years martial laws were imposed on fates.

History is full of mistakes and errors;
Let us be good thoughtful observers.
It will help us to march ahead with insight;
The time has come for a glorious fight.
Parliament is incapable to lead our fate;
Hypocrites cannot make our nation great.

Someone right, Some one left,
Elected leaders, sitting on bench.
Nation is aware to listen debate;
As the future of country at stake.
Journalists write al lot of nuclear deal
No one understands it is down or hill.

Bundles of currency, spread around;
No one listen, but everywhere sound.
Left-wing speaker tries to control;
But members are ready to kill the soul.
Freedom to speak has another meaning;
Dog-like bark, and rat-like dealing.

Non-sense talking goes ahead;
Parliamentarians cry without head
Cunning PM looks to high;
And getting assurance not to shy.
knowing very well how to ride;
The lady of power full of pride.

Debate of national deal goes to hell;
But numerical exercise does well.
Governments is saved again from fall;
Mischievous smile spread over all.
''People will'' is crushed in agreement.
Yes! Yes!! It is our national Parliament.

Democracy and its soul is raped by them;
It is nothing but just like a planned game.
They misguide the nation in many directions;
Religious disputes and meaningless actions.
Who'll save the nation form this bewilderment?
People dreams are always killed in parliament.

Poets, writers, artists are busy in aesthetic;
They have forgotten the light of physics.
Who'll enlighten the mind of our dying nation?
Frustration! Frustration! Everywhere frustration!
our souls are sold for the sake of betterment;
A wash out action is need in our parliament.

''You steal the dream''

(Dedicated to those peace lover, who thinks ''The little boy'' and ''The Fat man'' were same for mankind, I would love listen all the peace loving people .)

You steal the dreams, after the defeat of the Eagle,
Gathering, conspiracy, divisions, cunning smile .
He sits in a cave of iron, all around a jungle
Roaring sea hunts his night, he thinks for a while.
He fought on the earth, making them legal;
Using arms thousand and thousand miles.

Five millions dry people move to east,
As if they would get a delicious feast.
Cold storm was waiting ahead as death
With a musical march, They had faith.
They killed the people, burned the city,
Crying hard for the victory of liberty.

With sharp arms, Millions of people mingle together;
Frustration, hatred, loot, killing smile,
He sits on the air, all around sky
Bright Sun warmed his body, he looked to fight
He wanted to make the world bright.

Killing! Killing! All a around Killing !
Laughing nature, No where feeling!
Someone captured, some one killed
Smiling with nature, He was alone to Flee.
sit against the wall, he said, ''You steal the dreams...
''You steal the dreams....You steal the dreams...

No more blood and tears !!

(Dedicated to humankind)
You are civilized, you have walked ahead;
You do not run behind animals, with stones;
Do not live in caves and eat meat with blood
You discovered fire, then electron, proton and neutron
Now, You are directing the natural forces;
Ah! You are civilized, You have walked ahead.
You have used ''Little boy'' and '' Fat man'';
And have destructed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
You are capable to destroy your whole existence.
What the hell you are doing? Arm race! For what?
O, Civilized world ! You have hurt yourself enough;
Now you have created ''Big Giant''.
It will eat you, it will eat you....Hey!! Stop yourself.
......................No more blood and tears !!

Ekata kapoor is a thinking bird

Miss Ekata kapoor is very much thoughtful girl and after a deep and constant thinking about the Mahabarata, she has brought some pearl for the New Generation, who has not seen the Mahabharata. May be, she believes that the Mahabharata is a story to be seen, and for last two years during her research, she was watching the Mahabarata, not reading it. But her finding regarding the Mahabharata is unique. She has done a lot of experiment with sas and bahu and she is confident regarding her research. In her kahaani hamaaray Mahaabhaarat ki, she has used a tatoo around the belly of Draupadi and all the members of her creative team are proud of her new findings. This tatoo around the belly of Draupadi is the result intense research, as a full team of 8 researchers was busy for last two years. Its finding must be appreciated by the new generation.
Miss Ekata kapoor very politely accepts that she has not done any mythological shows, although her sas-bahu saga is far ahead of any mythology. In her own words, '' I have never done any mythological shows before and decided to do my version of Mahabharat which will be mainly targeted at the youth who have only heard of Mahabharat.'' She is so nice, so quite that she is very much worried about New Genereation, who has only heard about Mahabharata. And after conceiving Mahabharata she is producing her own version.The New Generation would love to see the tatoo around Draupadi's belly. She has done a great job and she is very much aware of it as she says, '' We have freed the mythological of its clichés. ''She is leading the Indian culture in a new direction, towards tatto- culture.
She is a serious researcher, so for the costume of all the characters, she has approached Bollywood fashion designer Manish Malhotra. He has thought a lot with Ekata kapoor's line, after all she has done a deep research. Even she has haired a historian, who is taking care of all the things regarding Mahabharata, although Ekata believes that mythology is not history, and Mahabharata is mythology.
Ekata is highly devoted to Lord Krishana, so while selecting the infant Lord Krishna she left no stone unturned. she had deputed a large team from the production department to find out details about kids who were born last year on the day of Krishna Janam, ie, Janamashtami. The team, which went on this mission five months back, collected a list of over 150 infants who were born on last ‘Janmashtami’. From these 150-plus kids, 25 kids were shortlisted, and their kundalis were checked by a team of 7 distinguished astrologers who were specially flown in from various parts of India. These astrologers further picked the perfect two kundalis, and incidentally, the kid who was chosen is also named Krish! Thanks God, she has found a child ! Otherwise there was a probability she would collect some new married couple and ask them to use right time table for love-making so that she should get a right child for the infant Lord Krishana next year. In that case, New Generation would be waiting for her perception of Mahabharata.

Also prior to our Krishna janam episode, the teams from MAHAABHAARAT went to Balaji Tirupati, Jagannath Puri and Sreenathji to get the ornaments and clothes blessed, which will be worn by our Krishna in MAHAABHAARAT. The moorpankh has come from Jagannath Puri. The jewels have been blessed at Tirupathi. They have got the chakra that Krishna will carry blessed from Sreenathji because they say the asli chakra is in Sreenathji.
Who is writing the script of her Mahbharata is not known till now. May be it is a secret or may be Ekata kapoor is in direct touch with Lord Ganesha who would recite Mahabharat to Ved Veyas.


बेज़ुबां निकले
नई जब राह पर निकले तो हम बेकारवां निकले ।
कोई तूफ़ान जब देखा तो बाहर खामखाँ निकले ।।
तरन्नुम साधने में उम्र सारी झोंक दी लेकिन ,
बयां का वक्त जब आया तो कैसे बेजुबां निकले ।।
किसी सूरत का ऐसा तिलिस्मी एहसास कर बैठे
कि उस कूचे से जब निकले तो होकर नौजवाँ निकले।
सज़ा देने में इतनी जल्दबाजी ठीक होगी क्या ?
कहीं ऐसा न हो यह बाद में अपनी खता निकले ।
सफर करता रहा हूँ मंजिलों के बाद भी अक्सर
भरोसा था कि शायद और कोई रास्ता निकले ।

''Really!! It is the life"

All around the wall, the small
Creatures move freely;
They are blood suckers,
Come out after the sunset.
They love the smell of blood
And drink it till death.
We all sit in the room,
With red and white wines;
And drink and talk;
Talk and drink till sunrise.
With each peg, we move
in different directions.
Someone explains Milton,
Another talks about Ibsen
The third one recalls his early life;
With teenage girls and their smile.
All are eager to take a puff;
The room fills with smoke.
It is the city of big buildings;
But this room is sinking under the earth
Each one has dream for greatness;
And wine is the ladder to it.
Might be some of them touch the Zenith;
Might be some of them collapse.
It is the process of making history,
Being part of this process is glorious.
Between the bloody creatures and wine;
Life is acting like a real hero.
Its' roar makes the room alive;
If you do not believe in me;
Come and drink with us endless wine.
I am sure you will learn our language,
And tell...''Really!! it is the life"
