रास्ते तो बहुत है, पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं......

सफर तो लंबा है, पर मैं थका नहीं हूं ,
वक्त तो बुरा है,पर मैं डरा नहीं हूं ,
रास्ते तो बहुत है, पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं।

टूटा तो बहुत हूं, पर मैं बिखरा नहीं हूं ,
रोया तो बहुत हूं, पर मैं सहमा नहीं हूं ,
रास्ते तो बहुत है, पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं।


हालातों ने तो बिखेरा है, पर मैं टूटा नहीं हूं,
असफलताओं ने रोका तो है, पर मैं झुका नहीं हूं,
रास्ते तो बहुत है, पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं।

लक्ष्य तो ऊंचा है, पर मैं झुका नहीं हूं,
मुश्किलें तो बेइंतेहा हैं, पर मैं हारा नहीं हूं,
 रास्ते तो बहुत है, पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं।

तकदीर का साथ तो नहीं है, पर मैं डटा हूं,
 मंजिल का नाप तो नहीं है, पर मैं मापता चला हूं,
 रास्ते तो बहुत है पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं।

मंजिले तो दूर है, पर मैं रुका नहीं हूं,
 फासले तो बहुत है, पर मैं थका नहीं हूं,
 रास्ते तो बहुत है, पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं…
रास्ते तो बहुत है पर मैं भटका नहीं हूं।।

RTI Amendment Bill 2019 - End of RTI

The Right to Information Act (RTI) was finally amended on 25 July, 2019 when the upper house gave its assent, when proposed amendments escaped scrutiny and focused discussion after 117 MP’s voted against referring them to a select committee and 75 voting for it.


The RTI was enacted in June 2005 and it came into force in October the same year after the signature of the then President A P J Abdul Kalam replacing the Freedom of Information Act, 2002. The RTI Act was hailed across the country as a major landmark in the country’s march towards strengthening of democracy as it empowered every citizen to seek information regarding the government and its officials barring a few exceptions considered necessary and sensitive to the national security.
Under the provisions of the Act, any citizen of India was empowered to request information from a public authority that is required to reply expeditiously or within 30 days. Success of the RTI can be judged by the fact that almost 5000 daily applications were filed, In the first 10 years of the enactment of the law, around 17,500, 000 applications were filed of which one fourth were requests to the Centre.
Success of the RTI can be judged by the fact that almost 5000 daily applications were filed, In the first 10 years of the enactment of the law, around 17,500, 000 applications were filed of which one fourth were requests to the Centre.


The Act had been working fairly well since its inception till the coming of the BJP led NDA government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi when one witnessed a fall in the number of applications. A 6% fall between 2015-16 and 2016-17 was reported in the RTI applications filed with the 1950 public authorities of the Central government which was receiving maximum information applications followed by states of Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Notwithstanding the fall in the rate of application, the Act was used extensively by the BJP to expose the Congress-led UPA government for its various acts of commission and omission that included scams and scandals.
The amended Act has changed sections 13 and 16 of the RTI Act, 2005. Section 13 of the original Act sets the term of Central Chief Information Commissioner and Information Commissioners at five years (or until the age of 65, whichever is earlier). It has been replaced now with “for such term” as may be prescribed by the Central government.

Again, Section 13 says that salaries, allowances and other terms of service of the “Chief Information Commissioner shall be the same as that of the Chief Election Commissioner”, and those of an Information Commissioner “shall be the same as of the Election Commissioner”. Through amendment now, the salaries, allowances and other terms of service of the Chief Information Commissioner and the Information Commissioners “shall be such as may be prescribed by the Central Government”.


By controlling the tenure and acquiring the authority to fix salaries, allowances and other terms of service, the Government has radically altered the character of the Information Commissions.




Almost identical changes through amending Section 16 of the original Act have been brought to Chief Information Commissioner and Information Commissioners of states. While the salaries, allowances and others terms of service now “shall be such as prescribed by the Central Government”, now even State Chief Information Commissioner and Information Commission would be chosen by the Centre. Earlier as per the original Act, State Chief Information Commissioner and Information Commissioner were picked up by a three-member panel consisting of the Chief Minister (CM), state’s leader of the opposition or leader of the largest opposition party in the state assembly and a state cabinet minister nominated by the CM.


At least seven former Information Commissioners of the Central Information Commission condemned the move of the NDA government to amend the RTI Act through the RTI Amendment Bill 2019.
Wajahat Habibullah, Deepak Sandhu (both former chief information commissioners), Shailesh Gandhi, Sridhar Acharyulu, MM Ansari, Yashovardhan Azad and Annapurna Dixit (former information commissioners) termed the amendment as a direct attack on the autonomy of information commissions and people's fundamental right to know and urged the government to withdraw the regressive amendments.

The RTI activists & other social worker tried to approach President of India  & they tried to submit memorandum signed by almost 2 lac people in order to protest the amendment in RTI act but police arrested them and not allowed to submit their memorandum against RTI amendment bill at gate no. 36 of President House.

In my opinion their is undeclared emergency in India as we can't  ask questions about the working of government as this government is trying to control all the constitutional as well as statutory bodies. We have seen biased working of Elections Commission and CBI in recent years now amending RTI act government is trying to control the information right of common People & original RTI act 2005 is on the verge of extinction by becoming poppet of government after amendment.

शायद वो याद तो करती होगी.......


मुझे देख कर उसके पलके झुकाने को ,
मेरे इंतजार में उसके रूठ जाने को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।


मुझसे की हर एक मुलाकात को ,
मेरे कहे हर एक अल्फाज को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।

मुझसे हुई दोस्ती को ,
और मुझसे हुए कमबख्त इश्क को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।

उससे कही हर एक बात को ,
हाथों में थामे मेरे हाथ को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।

मुझसे किए हर एक वादे को ,
उम्र भर साथ निभाने के इरादे को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।

तन्हाई में दिए मेरे साथ को ,
मुश्किल में थामे मेरे हाथ को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।

मतलब से किए प्यार को ,
 मुझसे झूठे किए इजहार को ,
शायद वो याद तो करती होगी …
…..शायद वो याद तो करती होगी ।।

In India The Water Moved from Providing Life to Taking Lives....

India faces theworst water crisis in history, Groundwater Scarcity, Pollution threatens India’s overall economy. A harrowing report in June warned that Delhi, along with 20 other Indian cities, could reach “zero groundwater levels” by 2020. A new report from the NITI Aayog – a government think tank – said the need for “urgent and improved” management of water resources.With nearly 600 million Indians facing high-to-extreme water stress – where more than 40 percent of the annually available surface water is used every year – and about 200,000 people dying every year due to inadequate access to safe water, the situation is likely to worsen as the demand for water will exceed the supply by 2050, said the ‘Composite Water Management Index’ (CWMI) report.

Our country pumps more groundwater than the water is added back to its sources in the ground, but who cares! only some half minded activists or environmentalists make a buzz in their reports, but tell them that, live their life smoothly why are you people going mad behind water its not an issue in India; Ram Mandir, Pakistan, cricket & Hindu-Muslim these are the issues of our Nation...



A shocking percentage of India’s water is filthy. According to the latest assessment by the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI), nearly 70 percent of all of the country’s fresh water — in the ground or on the surface — is contaminated. India’s rivers, lakes, and aquifers are more polluted than the waters of any other major nation. India is currently ranked 120 among 122 countries in the water quality index. Drained and contaminated aquifers contribute to India’s “worst water crisis.” Dirty aquifers and water scarcity are destabilizing the world’s second-largest country and sixth-largest economy.  As its water reserves get dirtier and smaller, India is losing the capacity to safeguard public health, ensure farm productivity, grow the economy, and secure social stability.

The basic data points collected by the Indian government, and no longer veiled from public view, illustrate the widening emergency. India uses or consumes more than 600 billion cubic meters (158 trillion gallons) of water annually.  Of that amount, 245 billion cubic meters are drawn from aquifers.
India is more dependent on water pumped from aquifers than any other nation — it accounts for about a quarter of global demand for groundwater, according to the World Bank. More than 90 percent of groundwater in India is used for irrigated agriculture. The remainder — 24 billion cubic meters — supplies 85 percent of the country’s drinking water. Roughly 80 percent of India’s 1.35 billion residents depend on groundwater for both drinking and irrigation.
The “worst water crisis” doesn’t stop here. Drought and wasteful pumping are drying up aquifers that supply more than 30 million water wells across India, many of them used for irrigation. Government studies show at least a third of India’s groundwater reserves are being pumped at much faster rates than they are being recharged by rainfall. Moreover, said a World Bank study, “aquifers are depleting in the most populated and economically productive areas. Climate change will further strain groundwater resources.”
As many as one billion people in India live in areas of physical water scarcity, of which 600 million are in areas of high to extreme water stress, according to a new report.Globally, close to four billion people live in water-scarce areas, where, for at least part of the year, demand exceeds supply.



This number is expected to go up to five billion by 2050, said the report titled 'Beneath the Surface: The State of the World's Water 2019,' which was released on World Water Day.

By 2040, it is predicted that 33 countries are likely to face extremely high water stress - including 15 in the Middle East, most of Northern Africa, Pakistan, Turkey, Afghanistan and Spain. Many - including India, China, Southern Africa, USA and Australia - will face high water stress.
The report also highlighted that India uses the largest amount of groundwater -- 24 percent of the global total, more than that of China and the US combined - and is the third largest exporter of groundwater -- 12 percent of the global total.

As said, 21 Indian cities – including Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad – will run out of groundwater by 2020, affecting 100 million people; 40 percent of India’s population will have no access to drinking water by 2030, the report said. Currently, many Indian states, including Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Tamil Nadu, face water shortages, exacerbated by changing rainfall patterns. The Economic Survey 2017-18 acknowledged India’s water crisis and explained the triggers, including rapid groundwater depletion, the decline in average rainfall and increasing dry monsoon days, The Times Of India reported on 21 June. If mitigation measures are not implemented, India faces a six percent loss in its gross domestic product (GDP) by 2050, the NITI Aayog report said. 


In the end, I know that Indian government alone can't do it because massive support is required from the public but its the government who can impose a strict rules & better water management system as well as distribution throughout the public domain to improve unchecked water wastage & their should be complete ban on handpumps as well as borewells to stop further decrease in groundwater level. Besides this India has to cut down its population growth rate which is the most important factor for the water crisis. To replenish the level of groundwater we have to plant a billion of trees which consume less water but they retain much more so that rainwater must be added into groundwater at a much faster rate. Otherwise very soon Water will Move from Providing Life to Taking Lives....

वो पापा ही थे......

आज पहली बार पापा आप के लिए पेन चलाया है ,
बचपन से अब तक दिया प्यार मुझे याद आया है ,
वह आप ही थे जिसने हमें पैरों पर खड़ा होना सिखाया है l


हां मां ने हमें गोद में उठाया है,
पर पापा ने हमें पैरों पर चलना सिखाया है ,
जब डांटती थी बचपन में मां हमें ,
तो पापा ने ही हमें बचाया है l

पापा ही थे जिन्होंने हमें रोते-रोते हंसाया है ,
हमारी एक मुस्कान के लिए हाथी - घोड़ा बन कर दिखाया है ,
बचपन में हमारी हर जिद को पूरा करके दिखाया है ,
वो पापा ही हैं जिन्होंने हमें बिन मांगे सब कुछ दिलाया है l

हमारी हर शरारत पर मां के गुस्से से बचाया है ,
वो पापा ही हैं जिन्होंने हमें जमाने से लड़ना सिखाया है ,
सपने तो हमारे थे पर पूरा करने का जिम्मा पापा ने निभाया है ,
जब रास्ता कठिन था तो हमें पापा ने  कंधे पर उठाया है l

बाहर से सख्त और भीतर से नरम होते हैं पापा ,
हर मुश्किल में हमारे साथ खड़े रहते हैं पापा,
सख्त आवाज के पीछे अपना प्यार छुपाते हैं पापा,
हमारे सपनों के पीछे खुद के सपने दबाते हैं पापा l

वक्त बीता साल बीते हम बड़े हो गए,
बात बात पर अब हम कहने लगे पापा आप बूढ़े हो गए ,
पापा के किसी बात को दोबारा पूछ लेने पर हम चिढ़ने लग गए,
हमें पता ही नहीं चला कब पापा हमारे लिए पुराने जमाने के हो गए l

झुक गई कमर उनकी हमारे लिए खुशियों  की दीवार बनाते बनाते ,
बूढ़ी हो गई आंखें उनकी हमारे लिए सपने सजाते सजाते ,
अब वक्त आ गया है उनकी उम्मीदों को हम अनाथ ना करें,
अब हमारी बारी है उनके हर सपने को हम पूरा करें I
क्योंकि
बचपन में हमारी हर जिद को पूरा करके दिखाया है ,
वो पापा ही थे जिन्होंने हमें अपने पैरों पर खड़ा होना सिखाया है….
वो पापा ही थे जिन्होंने हमें अपने पैरों पर खड़ा होना सिखाया है II

वो क्या अफसोस करेगा मेरे ना होने पे .....

यूं तो कटे हुए उस पेड़ को एक जमाना हो गया,
मगर ढूंढते अपना ठिकाना परिंदे का अक्सर यहां आना हो गया l

निकले थे हम इस आस में किसी को बना लेंगे अपना ,
पर इस ख्वाहिश नें …
उम्र भर के लिए दे दिया आंखों को टूटा हुआ एक सपना l



किसी ने थोड़ा सा वक्त दिया था मुझे ,
मैंने आज तक उसे इश्क समझ संभाल रखा है ,
अब यह न पूछना कि यह अल्फाज कहां से लाते हो,
क्योंकि हमने भी दर्द एक दिल में पाल रखा है l

छुपे छुपे से रहते हैं सरेआम नहीं होते ,
कुछ रिश्ते महसूस होते हैं उनके नाम नहीं होते ,
वह गए तन्हा छोड़ कर और वजह तक न बताई,
हमने पूछा उनसे तो कह गए हमें पसंद है तन्हाई l

उन्हें हमारी खामोशी पसंद आ गई ,
और हम बेजुबां हो गए,
रोता देख हमें वो यह कहकर चले गए ,
रोता तो हर कोई है, क्या हम सबके हो गए l

मौसम से वह बहुत अलग तो नहीं थे ,
क्योंकि बदलने का हुनर उन्हें भी आता है ,
लेकिन हमें अब समझ आया रिश्ते मतलब के ही अच्छे हैं,
क्योंकि बेमतलब के रिश्तों का मतलब ही कहां होता है l

परीक्षा में आए मुश्किल सवाल सा हूं मैं,
मुझे बीना समझे उसने छोड़ा है ,
याद तो उसे आज भी करता हूं मैं ,
पर कितना करता हूं , बस बताना छोड़ा है l

एक अरसे पहले उसने कहा था इंतजार करना ,
पर हमें महंगा पड़ गया उसपर एतबार करना ,
क्योंकि ...
जो कभी डरा ही नहीं मुझे खोने से ,
वो क्या अफसोस करेगा मेरे ना होने पे ….
......
जो कभी डरा ही नहीं मुझे खोने से ….
वो क्या अफसोस करेगा मेरे ना होने पे ll

जीने के लिए एक कमी भी जरूरी है.....

मोहब्बत किसी से कब हो जाए इसका अंदाजा नहीं होता ,
ये वो घर है जिसका कोई दरवाजा नहीं होता,
चले जाते हैं छोड़कर बीच राह में अक्सर वो लोग,
जिनका मोहब्बत निभाने का कोई इरादा नहीं होता l


लगता है उसे मेरी मोहब्बत में विश्वास था थोड़ा,
जाने पे उसके मेरे आंसुओं नें पलकों के सब्र का बांध नहीं तोड़ा,
उसने मुझे याद नहीं किया और मैंने उसका इंतजार नहीं छोड़ा l

देकर गई है गम वो वफाई का मुझे फुर्सत से,
बस खुशी है कि,
फिर किसी से प्यार करेगी वो अब शिद्दत से,
क्योंकि, सीख कर गई है इस बार वो मोहब्बत मुझसे l

शिकायत भी क्या करूं तुझसे ,
तूने तो मुझे खुद से मिलाया है ,
हां अब प्यार नहीं करता हूं तुझसे ,
पर तूने तो मुझे प्यार करना सिखाया है l

अब मैं आसमां में नहीं ढूंढता हूं अपने सपनों को ,
सपनों के लिए जमीं भी जरूरी है ,
सब कुछ मिल जाए तो जीने का क्या मजा ,
जीने के लिए एक कमी भी जरूरी है ….
जीने के लिए एक कमी भी जरूरी है ll
