Hindi Poem - O Mere Piya

 Dear Readers.

Here i present my new hindi poem/song. I just wrote today. Hope you will enjoy it.

ओ मेरे पीया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 
तुझे ढूंढे जिया ओ मेरे पिया 

जहा भी जाओं  ढूंढे तुझे जिया 
जहा भी  जाओं बस तुझे ही खोजे अंखिया 
तुझसे यह केसी प्रीत लगाई  
प्रीत लगा के खुदको भुलाया 
अब  बस   तेरी  याद में खोया 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 

जब नैनो के तू वाण चलाये  
दिल मेरा घायल हो  जाए 
तेरे दर्द से यह टुटा, फिर भी यह तुझको चाहे 
तुझे बुलाये, तुझे पुकारे 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 

प्रीत की यह रूट फिर से आई, सावन बरसे, बरसे नैना 
बरस रहे मेघा, बरस रहे नैना 
भीगा जाये यह दिल हाय 
भीगा जाये यह मन हाय 
तेरी याद में, तेरी बातों में, तेरे ख्वाबो  में दिल ढूबा जाये 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया 
ओ मेरे पिया तुझे ढूंढे जिया

अब तोह आजा  मेरे पिया, प्यास  भुझा जा 
ओ मेरे पिया...  ओ मेरे पिया 
तू अब तोह आजा यह दूरी घटा जा 
सावन की तरह झूम के बरश जा 
ओ मेरे पिया ओ मेरे पिया... तुझे ढूंढे जिया 
तुझे ढूंढे जिया ओ मेरे पिया... ओ मेरे पिया

Disable Coach position of Indian Railways

Hello Readers.

Firstly I will like to say "Thanks" to Indian Railways for thinking about Disabled / differently abled person and developing a customized coach understanding the requirements of disabled person and attaching one disable coach in almost all running trains. This has been a welcome step for disabled / differently abled people because most general compartments these days hardly have place to sit and it is certainly a big problem for disabled people in traveling in general coaches.

But all that glitter's isn't Gold. Indian railways certainly did a great job but missed a big deal regarding the position of disabled coach. Currently it has been positioned just behind the Engine or the last coach in most trains. This inherently means that disabled coach comes too far from main railway entrance.

Many trains are quite good in lengths and there are many stations which have small platforms. In such trains like 19116 Bhuj Bandra Sayaji Nagri Express these coaches comes too far from railway station entrances. And in stations with small platforms like Kosamba (R.S), Surat these coaches even don't come on platforms. They are positioned too far.

Even for a normal passenger it's difficult to enter the train without a platform. Now imagine the pain a disabled / differently abled fellow has to take when entering in disabled coach from such station. Firstly he has to travel almost some 200 meters to reach the place where he can expect the train. Even if Wheel Chairs are provided its still tough to reach there because of stone laded railway tracks and even if they reach entering into trains without platforms is hard. At times disabled people are unable to reach to the coaches and they have to travel in general coaches because of improper position of coaches and general coaches are generally overloaded. Also Railways need to ensure that most people are aware of the availability of Wheel chair services for disabled / differently abled person.

Pics says much more then words. So here i am attaching some images taken by me at Kosamba Railway Station, Surat.

Disable Coach Position in Intercity Express at Kosamba Railway Station

Sayaji Nagri Express standing at Kosamba Railway Station can't find platform at both ends.

As per last weeks incident a lady somewhere in 50's was pulling a lady almost in late 70's. It appeared like she had disability in legs, she was literally being ragged on platform by the other lady in-order to take her to the coach. She could not take her to disable coach being so far positioned. I was coming out of the general coach and found the old lady in miserable condition. I asked her "why you are pulling her like this?" the lady screamed "she has problem in legs, and I wish to take her along with me". I moved my hands for the help to get her inside the train.. I asked why you did not took the wheel chairs from station...! she was shocked hearing that she could have taken the wheel chairs; and gave blank look, she added son i was not aware about it...! Somehow me along with a friend helped both the ladies to enter the overcrowded general train coach. This incident took place at Kosamba Railway Station (PIN 394120) in Train Bandra - Bhuj Sayaji Nagri Express.

Railways take care of business class people by placing AC coaches at center, but I think they can travel a few steps more in order to accommodate disabled coach in center. Railways must do this to the soonest possible. Everyday many disabled people face such instances.

And we must also raise voices so that railways takes the necessary action. Lets express our concerns that we are ready to walk few steps additional but please do put the disabled coach somewhere at center.

I have filed a written complaint to Railways for this serious concerns but its been a month to hear from them.

Please do take some time to write to the railways so that they can hear it.

Here's the link to Railways customer care were you can complaint

Hope you will do the needful.

Moving towards a better nation. Moving from Socialist approach to nationalist approach

Dear Readers.

I will like to express my personal opinion on Socialism Vs. Nationalism and How we can move towards a better India.

I believe socialist approach can be dangerous to the nation in longer terms. 

I will like to begin with these words

"There should not be right to Food, there should be Right to Work.
There should be an opportunity to Succeed, Not Right to Succeed.

Socialist approach says one should get right to food but Nationalist approach is "One should get right to work". If one is determined to work he should get work. This work will in-turn bring money and hence food and shelter to them.

I will like to give two current examples.

1. Socialist approach - Newly Elected Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Mr. Akhilesh Yadav has declared that everyone in Uttar Pradesh who is above the age of 35 will get 1000 Rs. every month at home.

What will be the outcome of this approach? - More people will like to get enrolled in this list. Many will prefer not to work and sit home. These type of policies indeed harms the development of the state. Such policies should never be adopted. Instead people should me motivated to work. If everyone gets right to work then they will automatically make money. This will remove their hunger and will bring both growth to themselves and the state without the loss of crucial government funds. 

2. Nationalist Approach - UPA Government has done one great job for sure - NREGA (National Rural Employment Guarantee Act)

Under NREGA everyone has right to work. Currently it is implemented in many states of India with a 100 Day job guarantee for all. If government fails to provide them 100 day job in a year then it will pay them 100 day labour. People employed under such schemes usually work in development projects like Road construction, Water lake construction, and more. This keeps government busy in undertaking more and more projects so that it can employee the people and this makes people busy working. This makes a better India. Opens avenues for growth. 

Instead of giving money straight away to the unemployed's we should empower them by giving them job/work.

Recently Government passed Railway Budget. There was proposed price hike of 10 percent. This hike came after 9 long years. And Most people think this is justified because railways is already running in loss. How can a Loss making institute grow and provide better services? Indian railways need to get out of loss and make some profit and put the money in to the better development of Railways and services. To provide better services and safety and clean railways perhaps this is why prices were hiked. I think most Indians appreciated Price hike for first time ever but then again a socialist leader Mumta banerjee  (ex-Railway Minister) raised voice and condemned the budget specially for price hike and even threats to drop the government down. Remember Indian Railways is worlds cheapest railways. If socialist approach is taken and prices will never be hiked then expect to travel in same slow trains even in 2020 or 2030. Stop dreaming of Bullet and Hi tech trains. If a little higher fairs can bring developments it should be welcomed. If the proposed things are rightly implemented then we can have much better railways. Though we will have to pay more but we will reach the destination in less time. Remember Time is Money.

Also there should be an opportunity for everyone to succeed. If one is determined to start-up and become an entrepreneur government should ensure that it is not ruined by corrupts and other factors. Start up capitals can also be funded. Entrepreneurship should be promoted to the fullest. An entrepreneur not only empowers himself but others too. More the entrepreneurs nation has more developed it is.

Please Note this is my personal opinion not intended to support or condemn any government or individual.

Best Regards,
Navneet Singh Chauhan.
