बेमौत मरती नदियां -कविता Dying Rivers- poem


The river’s ecosystem has left 65 percent of the world’s rivers in danger of losing biodiversity due to various factors.   The Sarasvati River is one of the main Rigvedic rivers mentioned in the scripture Rig Veda and ancient Sanskrit texts. Around ,  70 per cent of the sites that have been discovered to contain archaeological material dating to this civilization’s period are located on the banks of the now dried out Saraswati river.


पौराणिक कथा के अनुसार सरस्वती नदी शुष्क हो तिरोहित हो गई। इसका गहरा प्रभाव मानव जाति पर पड़ा। वर्तमान सूखी हुई सरस्वती नदी के समानांतर खुदाई में ५५००-४००० वर्ष पुराने शहर मिले हैं जिन में पीलीबंगा, कालीबंगा और लोथल भी हैं। यहाँ कई यज्ञ कुण्डों के अवशेष भी मिले हैं, जो महाभारत में वर्णित तथ्य को प्रमाणित करते हैं।ऋग्वेद के नदी सूक्त के अनुसार यह पौराणिक नदी पंजाब के पर्वतीय भाग से निकलकर कुरुक्षेत्र और राजपूताना से होते हुए प्रयाग या इलाहाबाद आकर यह गंगा तथा यमुना में मिलकर पुण्यतीर्थ त्रिवेणी कहलाती है।



प्रकृति से   लेना जानते हैं पर संभालना नहीं जानते।

ना अपना भविष्य ना  अपने संतति का भविष्य,

ना इतिहास से सबक लेना चाहते है।

पौराणिक कथा के अनुसार सरस्वती नदी

शुष्क हो तिरोहित हो गई।

इस नदी के साथ ना जाने कितने

 ज्ञान , विज्ञान , सभ्यतायें लुप्त हो गईं ।

                                                          कितने नासमझ हैं हम?




I am PhD. in Psychology, a PGDM in HR, hold a certificate in Child Guidance and Counsel ling and a writer, not necessarily in that order. My work experience includes teaching MBA students in Usha Martin and Amity Colleges in Patna and teaching Psychology in various college of Patna to B.A. and M.A. students and to law students in Swami Vivekanand law College in Lucknow. I've also taught primary school students in DPS, Dhanbad. I got married at the age of 19, in my first year of BA Psychology Hons. I finished my studies and developed my interest in women and children studies in India. My thesis is about the urban, educated Indian women. I have written Hindi articles for Hindustan, Dhanbad and the MA Psychology study course for Nalanda Open University in Patna. My interest in writing is something that happened subconsciously. But lately, after having written deep, psychological and spiritual articles and having produced books for Post Graduate Psychology students, I realized how much I love writing for children. I find it refreshing and heartening to write about their innocence, faith, fears and fearlessness. My two daughters have grown on a staple diet of magic and fairy tales and I must confess that I have enjoyed their childhood perhaps more than they did themselves. I wish to keep writing for these little people who are the bright future of our country, our civilization and our world.

  1. Rekha ji what I like most in all of your posts that you first choose a theme and then set up a tone for it and the culmination with the poem is just as a cherry on the top. Congo ☺️

  2. A beautiful poem. Especially in Hindi. Not many try to write a blog in Hindi. You are doing a pretty good job.
    Great article by the way on deterioration of rivers. May be we should try to learn something from it.

  3. इंसान की प्रवृति ऐसी ही है … सदियों से ऐसी ही है … पर जब पानी ख़त्म होगा तब शायद समझ आए …
