इतके यश तुला रगड़ माझ्या मना बन दगड....

सोमवारी दत्त जयंती च्या मुहूर्तावर श्री साई कृपेने मी क्लासेस ला सुरवात केली.पहिल्या दिवशी ५ विद्यार्थी , दुसऱ्या दिवशी ६ आणि आज हि संख्या १० वर जाऊन पोहचली.आई वडिलांना १०० ची अपेक्षा होती,मला अजूनही आहे.अपेक्षेपेक्षा कमी प्रतिसाद मिळाल्यामुळे आणि कॉलेज ने अजूनही राजीनामा मंजूर न केल्यामुळे कॉलेज करून क्लासेस कर असा दबाव वाढायला लागला.आई, वडील, काका, अनुजाची आई सगळ्यांनी आग्रह धरला.पण मी माझा निर्णय बदलला नाही.२५ हजाराची नोकरी सोडणारा म्हणून अजूनही खूप जन वेड्यात काढतात मला.कधी कधी खूप प्रेशर वाढत.पण आता मागे हटायचं नाही अस ठरवलंय मी. लोकांना वाटत कि २५ हजारापेक्षा जास्त काय असेल या ट्युशन किवा क्लासेस मध्ये.प्राध्यापकी सोडून हा १० विचा शिक्षक का झाला? पण मी स्वताला शिक्षक समजत नाही, मी स्वताला एका कंपनीचा MANAGING DIRECTOR समजतो.क्लासेस एखाद्या प्रोफेशनल कंपनी सारखे चालवता येतात हेच इथल्या लोकांना माहित नाही.
काल पेपर मध्ये चाटे कोचिंग क्लासेस ची जाहिरात पहिली.त्यांना लेक्चरर, कौन्सिलर आणि डी टी पी ऑपरेटर हवे होते.मी विचार केला माझ्या क्लासेस मध्ये कोण आहेत या सर्व पोस्ट वर.मुलांना लेक्चर्स मी देतो,त्यांना कौन्सलिन्ग पण मी करतो आणि नोट्स लिहून झाल्यावर त्याच डी टी पी पण मीच करतो.कधी कधी वाटत हे सगळ खूप मोठ होणार आहे.कधी कधी वाटत हे सगळ काही उपयोगाच नाही.एक गोष्ट मात्र समजते आहे,वाटत तितक सोप नाही हे सगळ.प्रेशर वाढल म्हणून मित्रांपाशी मोकळ व्हावस वाटलं.

Aabhal datalela
Man gondhalalela
Warun thembanchi barsaat
Algad shaharaleli hirwi waat

Maticha goodh gandh
Waryacha chanchal wedepana
Wijancha chalalela ajab khel
Halu halu ranganari katarwel

Ek paul wajel kuthetari
Uthatil najuk khunahi…
Uthatil dharanila hi mag Shahare
Chorun pahel tila to devahi..

Wadhati tichi spandane
Ghetana mokala shwaas
Aaj tichya rupaat purna pane bhijayacha
Janu ya pawasane ghetala hota dhyaas.

Aabhal datalela
Man gondhalalela
Tiche he aagale saundarya pahayala
Janu sare jag thambalela
Janu sare jag thambalela….

तुझे दुःख तुझे नाही !
तुझे दुःख आमचे आहे !

अजून त्याच्या डोळियांनी
आम्ही प्रत्यय पारखत आहोत !

अजून त्याच्या प्रकाशात
आम्ही शब्द वेचत आहोत !

अजून त्याच्या सोबतीने
आम्ही वाट चालत आहोत !

तुझे दुःख तुझे नाही ...

LETTER OF THE EDITOR OF "THE TIMES OF INDIA " TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA

Dear Mr. Prime minister,
I am a typical mouse from Mumbai. In the local train compartment which has capacity of 100 persons, I travel with 500 more mice. Mouse at least squeaks, but we don't even do that.
Today I heard your speech, in which you said, 'NO BODY WOULD BE SPARED'. I would like to remind you that fourteen years have passed since serial bomb blasts in Mumbai took place. Dawood was the main conspirator. Till today he is not caught. All our Bollywood actors, our builders, our Gutka king keep meeting him, but your Government can not catch him. Reason is simple; all your ministers are hand in glove with him. If any attempt is made to catch him, everybody will be exposed. Your statement 'NOBODY WOULD BE SPARED' is nothing but a cruel joke on these unfortunate people of India .
Enough is enough. As such, after seeing terrorist attack carried out by about a dozen young boys, I realize that if same thing continues, days are not far away when terrorists will attack by air, destroy our nuclear reactors and there will be one more Hiroshima .
We the people are left with only one mantra. Womb to Bomb to Tomb. You promised Mumbaikar Shanghai; what you have given us is Jalianwala Baug.
Today only your home minister resigned. What took you so long to kick out this joker? Only reason was that he was loyal to Gandhi family. Loyalty to Gandhi family is more important than blood of innocent people, isn't it?
I am born and brought up in Mumbai for last fifty eight years. Believe me, corruption in Maharashtra is worse than that in Bihar . Look at all the politicians, Sharad Pawar, Chagan Bhujbal, Narayan Rane, Bal Thackray , Gopinath Munde, Raj Thackray, Vilasrao Deshmukh all are rolling in money. Vilasrao Deshmukh is one of the worst Chief ministers I have seen. His only business is to increase the FSI every other day, make money and send it to Delhi , so Congress can fight next election. Now the clown has found new way and will increase FSI for fishermen, so they can build concrete houses right on sea shore. Next time terrorists can comfortably live in those houses, enjoy the beauty of the sea and then attack our Mumbai at their will.
Recently, I had to purchase a house in Mumbai. I met about two dozen builders. Everybody wanted about 30% in black. A common person like me knows this and with all your intelligent agency & CBI, you and your finance ministers are not aware of it. Where all the black money goes? To the underworld isn't it? Our politicians take help of these goondas to vacate people by force. I myself was victim of it. If you have time please come to me, I will tell you everything.
If this has been a land of fools, idiots, then I would not have ever cared to write to you this letter. Just see the tragedy. On one side we are reaching moon, people are so intelligent; and on the other side, you politicians have converted nectar into deadly poison. I am everything Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Schedule caste, OBC, Muslim OBC, Christian Schedule caste, and Creamy Schedule caste; only what I am not is INDIAN. You politicians have raped every part of Mother India by your policy of divide and rule.
Take example of our Former President Abdul Kalam. Such an intelligent person; such a fine human being. But you politician didn't even spare him. Your party along with opposition joined hands, because politicians feel they are supreme and there is no place for good person.
Dear Mr Prime minister, you are one of the most intelligent persons, a most learned person. Just wake up, be a real SARDAR. First and foremost, expose all selfish politicians. Ask Swiss banks to give names of all Indian account holders. Give reins of CBI to independent agency. Let them find wolves among us. There will be political upheaval, but that will be better than dance of death which we are witnessing every day. Just give us ambience where we can work honestly and without fear. Let there be rule of law. Everything else will be taken care of.
Choice is yours Mr. Prime Minister. Do you want to be lead by one person, or you want to lead the nation of 100 Crore people?


Prakash B. Bajaj
Editor Mumbai-Times of India

(If you want our Country to survive then please forward this letter to all your contacts. Its high time we all should wake-up, unite and be strong.)

- but they won.

: [delivering the closing statements of his own defense] Thousands of years ago the first man discovered how to make fire. He was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light, but he left them a gift they had not conceived of, and he lifted darkness off the earth. Through out the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision. The great creators, the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors, stood alone against the men of their time. Every new thought was opposed. Every new invention was denounced. But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered, and they paid - but they won.
