(1/6)हिंदी साहित्य में अगर किसी कवि को लोककवि होने का दर्जा प्राप्त है तो वह हैं बाबा नागार्जुन!
नागार्जुन का जन्म 30 जून, 1911 को हुआ था। वह प्रगतिवादी विचारधारा के लेखक और कवि थे। नागार्जुन ने 1945 ई. के आसपास साहित्य क्षेत्र में क़दम रखा। Image

नागार्जुन की कविताओं को उनके समय और जीवन की डायरी के रूप में भी देखा जा सकता है। उनके काल की शायद ही कोई महत्वपूर्ण राजनैतिक और
(3/6)सामाजिक घटना होगी, जिसे उनकी कविता में स्थान न मिला हो।

ऐसी ही एक मर्मस्पर्शी कविता है -

'गुलाबी चूड़ियां'

प्राइवेट बस का ड्राइवर है तो क्या हुआ,
सात साल की बच्ची का पिता तो है!
सामने गियर से उपर
हुक से लटका रक्खी हैं
काँच की चार चूड़ियाँ गुलाबी
बस की रफ़्तार के मुताबिक

रमा! कैसी हो रमा तुम?
तुम्हारी और यशवंत की आज मुझे बहुत याद आई। तुम्हारी यादों से मन बहुत ही उदास हो गया है। मेरी बौद्धिक ताकत बहुत ही प्रबल बन गई है।
(2/17)शायद मन में बहुत सारी बातें उमड़ रही हैं। हृदय बहुत ही भाव प्रवण हो गया है। मन बहुत ही विचलित हो गया है और घर की, तुम सबकी बहुत यादआ रही है। तुम्हारी यादआ रही है। यशवंत की याद आ रही है। मुझे तुम जहाज पर छोड़ने आयी थी। मैं मना कर रहा था। फिर भी तुम्हारा मन नही माना।
(3/17)तुम मुझे पहुंचाने आई थी। मैं राउंड टेबल कांफ्रेंस के लिए जा रहा था। हर तरफ मेरी जय-जयकार गूंज रही थी और ये सब तुम देख रही थी। तुम्हारा मन भर आया था, कृतार्थता से तुम उमड़ गयी थी।तुम्हारे मुंह से शब्द नही निकल रहे थे।परंतु, तुम्हारी आंखें,जो शब्दों से बयां नहीं हो पा रहा था,

During a significant project of DRDO, the work pressure was high. A scientist approached his boss – & asked to leave early that day considering he had promised his children to take them to an exhibition.

Boss generously granted permission, the scientist got back to work. 1/3
When he did, he lost the track of time & forgot to leave early. He reached home, feeling guilty, looked for his kids, but could only find his wife.

He asked for kids, and to his surprise she told him: “your manager was here around 5:15 and he took kids for exhibition!”. 2/3
Apparently, Boss had been observing the scientist and noticed that he might never realise he had to go home. Feeling for the kids, he decided to take the kids in his stead.

Boss was none other than APJ Abdul Kalam.

Remembering Kalam sir on his #BirthAnniversary 3/3
