मरते मरते मर मिटे, अनशन अन्ना भक्त ।
जूं रेंगे न कान पर, सत्ता बेहद शख्त ।
सत्ता बेहद शख्त, बंद से क्या होना है ।
पब्लिक कई करोड़, चादरों में सोना है ।
पर दैनिक मजदूर, बताओ क्या हैं करते ?
रोगी जो गंभीर, कहो जीते या मरते ।।
अंग-देश में अकाल
Shanta is a character in the Ramayana. She was the daughter of Dasharatha and Kausalya, adopted by the couple Rompad and Vershini. Shanta was a wife of Rishyasringa. The descendants of Shanta and Rishyasringa are Sengar Rajputs who are called the only Rishivanshi rajputs.
LifeShanta was a daughter of Maharajah Dasharatha and Kausalya, but was adopted by the king (rajah) of Angadesh, Raja Rompad, and her aunt Vershini, an elder sister of Kausalya. Vershini had no children, and, when at Ayodhya, Vershini jokingly asked for offspring. Dasharatha agreed to allow the adoption of his daughter. However, the word of Raghukul was binding, and Shanta became the princess of Angadesh.
Shanta was educated in Vedas, Art and Craft, and was considered to have been very beautiful. One day, while her uncle, the king Rompad, was busy in conversation with Shanta, a Brahmin came to ask for help in cultivation in the days of the monsoon. Rompad did not pay attention to the Brahmin's plight. This irritated and enraged the Brahmin, who left the kingdom. Indradev, the god of rain, was unable to bear the insult of his devotee, so there was little rainfall during the monsoon season. The Rajah called Rishyasringa to perform yagya, he agreed to perform yagya and during the recitation of it, it rained heavily. The public rejoiced and there were festivals in Angadesh. To pay honour to their saviour, Dashratha, along with Kausalya, Vershini, and Rompad, decided to give the hand of Shanta to Rishyasringa.
कुछ दिन में वह आयेगा, लेकर बर्तन ख़ास |
लेगा रूपये पांच सौ, एहसान-ए-अहसास |
एहसान-ए-अहसास, ख़ुशी से आप दीजिये |
एक लाटरी टिकट, रसीदें साथ लीजिये |
चीजे मिलती मुफ्त, समस्या भी लाती हैं |
बेंचेगा सामान, कम्पनी सिखलाती है ||
दीदी-दादा तानते, कुर्सी वो मजबूत ।
भैया-बहना बांधते, मोहन रक्षा-सूत्र ।
मोहन रक्षा-सूत्र, सकल यू पी भरमाया ।
जीवन भर बंगाल, कहीं मुंबई कमाया ।
एफ़ डी आई, तेल, सिलिंडर काटे कौवा ।
साम्प्रदायिक संघ, हुआ हिंदू ही हौव्वा ।
भागें भगवन भक्त से, भड़भूजे से अन्न |
फास्ट फूड की फेहरिश्त, फिर फांके संपन्न |
फिर फांके संपन्न, नहीं ईश्वर से डरते |
बड़ा चढ़ावा भेंट, देख शिर्डी में करते |
रोटी से मजबूर, गरीबी क्या खाएगी |
हांड़-मांस को बेंच, अश्रु ही पी पाएगी ||
