Capital Of Uttarakhand in poems of Niranjan Suyal
Bhishma Kukreti

The separate Uttarakhand movement activists dreamt for the Uttarakhand capital in rural Uttarakhand but the administration did the opposite. In spite of people’s choice and verdict , the government agencies and politicians made Dehradun as capital of Uttarakhand . Garhwali poets as Narendra Singh Negi, Puran pant, Veena Pani Joshi, Virendra Panwar, Hemwati Nandan Bhatt and many created poetry aginst Dehradun being the capital of Uttarakhand . Niranjan Suyal created a fine poem against Dehradun and indirectly blames politicians and administration not going for the majority with sharp satire

१- म्यारो एक ही त कसूर च
मि गरीब छौं धनहीण छौं
उंड फुंड हेरा फेरी की
मि तैं सद्यानी अवांद रै


२- अपणा भुज्याँ यू बुखणा छन
कै तैं बि दोष नि देन्दु मी
यू गरीब को त स्वाभाव रै
पिछने की रोठी ही वैन खै

Tragedy of Poverty in the Poems of Prem Lal Bhatt
Bhishma Kukreti

Prem Lal Bhatt is one of the prominent signature in Garhwali poetic field . His way of creation of Garhwali poetry is definitely different than his contemporary as Abodh Bandhu Bahuguna, Kanhaya Lal Dandriyal, Girdhari Lal Thapliyal ‘Kankal, Lalit Keshwan or Jeet Singh Negi.

Prem lal Bhatt created many memorable poems related poverty, the disaster of poor, catastrophe of poor farmers differently than others in Garhwali language literature.
Tragic emotion is his speciality, when he describes poor man's agony:

१- इनि खैsरि हैं, इन खsरि तब
सौब बाबू दादा बि याद ऐं
इनु रुत रुत मी ह्वै गायों
जणू मेरो दुश्मन बि नि ह्वै

The biggest tragedy is that the poor man can not express his tragdy to others or is unable to complain about those who deprived his rights

२- मि तैं उर्ख्याल़ा की घाण सी
क्वी ढोळीगे क्वी कूटिगे

Is it not the paradox of innovation of agriculture and industralization that the milk producer dont get opportunity to use his own produce because of exploitation in this world ??

३- घ्यू त घ्युई रै ब्याज मा
मय्दु तलक यूँ ण ही खै
४- खाण ख्यन्न की उम्र मा बी
न मि खेली सक्यू ना खै सक्यू
कबि गास गिच्चा गै बि चs
चटणू तबी बि नि ऐई

Netra Singh Aswal as Garhwali Ghazal Creator
Bhishma Kukreti
Critics and History of literature writer will admire, praise, remember Netra singh Aswal for his new thinking for
Garhwali poetry creation. Netra singh never hesitated experiments in Garhwali poetry.
. From subject point of view too, he did not limit himself to udyar, guthyar , pakh pakhyad but took Garhwali poetry beyond Udyar, Guthyar . He might be first Garhwali poet who discussed international and national subject through Garhwali poetries
Netra Singh Aswal is one of the creators who initiated creating Ghazals in Garhwali language and tries to expand the form of Garhwali poetry beyond conventional Geet (lyrics) . As far as record is concerned , we have nine ghazals in Dhanga se Saxatkar (poetry collection of Netra Singh Aswal ) In his Ghazals, Netra Singh discussed the national, international, human related subjects more than hills of Garhwal. Let enjoy his one Ghazal:

इथ्गा किले नाराज छौ , सरदार जी
अपणू बि छ छ्वातु -सी घरबार जी -१

Wrong Planning and Lazy Males in Ghazals of MadhusSudan Thapliyal
Bhishma Kukreti
Before, British era, Uttarakhandis used to use conventional and sustainable technology and knowledge for agriculture , horticulture, husbandry , reproduction of domestic animals . However, later on, the planning from centralized system brought many problems for rural Uttarakhand. Uttarakhandis were knowledgeable for protecting the water resources but the central and planning planners brought non-conducive planning for development and this new developmental applications created many new problems as drying of old water reservoirs. The planners brought he buffaloes/ oxes from plains , which were unable to adjust the hilly environment or the Uttarakhandi cattle were unable to mate with strange cattle brought from plains. This nonadjustable planning harmed the development . On top of it, the inhabitants of Uttarakhand are indifferent to the development. Garhwali Ghazal Smarat showed these aspects of wrong planning and laziness of males in his ghazals

१- मेरी गाती को पाणी बणि गे परवाण

1- तिन त बूती छे मसूर

Uttarakhandis of all places will never forget the non democratic attitude , inhumanly behaviour of Uttar Pradesh administration at the time of Uttarakhand movement and specially the approach of so called socialist Mulayam Singh Yadav then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh who used many dictatorial practices to stop Uttarakhand movement . All Uttarakhandis will always remember Ram Pur Tiraha when Uttar Pradesh Police men showed their wickedness and suppressed the movement activist for going to Delhi . The new state movement activists wanted the capital of Uttarakhand in rural Uttarakhand (Gairsain) but the central government choose Dehradun as the capital of Uttarakhand . Most of the poet of garhwali language did wrote about Uttarakhand movement , Ram Pur Tiraha and the behaviour of administration for not making capital of Uttarakhand in rural Uttarakhand. In these circumstances, the poet Madhusudan Thapliyal addresses for unity and for initiating another movement with force.tin

Every body dreamt that new state Uttarakhand will be a Ram Rajya a model new province/state not only for India but the best example for developing countries too that new state will fulfill the aspiration of people of lowest demographic level. However, the dreams of all people in Uttarakhand and Uttarakhandi outside shattered down by politicians and government agencies and corrupted people . Garhwali Gazal samrat Madhusudan tells the maddening, wearisome conditions of the new state in his Gajals with stress :
१- मिलिगे अपणो राज लेकिन
कन मा चललो काज लेकिन
२- गीत लगणी छन बल घुघूती
कास बजौंला साज लेकिन
३- पैन्छा मा छ सारा मवासी
कनम द्योंलो ब्याज लेकिन
४- खाली अन्न -धन क कोठार
जिकुड़ी पा छन नाज लेकिन
५- ब्याळी -पर्सी त गैगी फूका
फिरी ग्यायी आज लेकिन
६- हथ कापाळी थैं खज्याणा
घुण्ड बंध्युं छ ताज लेकिन
७- ह्वेई गेनी राजा मंग्त्या
औंदी नी छ लाज लेकिन

Spring is an astounding natural phenomenon , spring brings many metabolic changes the earth, plants and animals or in all living organisms .

Mahesh Dhashmana Shastri is the only Garhwali poet who is fully dedicated to Basant or Spring and he has been singing his spring related poems in various cultural conferences , Akashvani, in private or at any suitable place wherever audience is there from 1979.

Aunar : The Poems of Varied Subjects and Varied Formats
(Review of Garhwali poetry Collection by Chinmay Sayar )
Bhishma Kukreti
Renowned , knowledgeable Garhwali language critic Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal states that fundamentally, Chinmay Sayar is the Garhwali poet of philosophy and positions Sayar as the critics positioned George Santayana , Lucretius , Dante , Goethe and including Lorna Bailey, Coleman Barks, Sri Chinmoy, Thomas Crowe , Daniel Ivan Granger, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jane Hirshfield, Alan Jacobs, Daniel Ladinsky, Silent Lotus, Mary Oliver as the poets of philosophy. The basic reason for Natiyal’s statement is that that Chinmay has the poetry subjects of substances and he tell us many things , which we are unable to see . For example an almond nut is simple nut but Chinmay says through his poetry that always, the almond nut takes happiness and sadness with same feelings :
Akhod
Sukham dukham
Katka pyar ch
Dacha
Katha putuk
Myala ch
The famous political, social and cultural historian of Garhwal and pot dr Khyati Singh Chauhan criticizes Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal for limiting Chinmay Sayar as philosophical poet. According to Chauhan, Chinmay Sayar is the poet of varied subjects and styles.
Both critics are right in their statements and perceptions. Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal rightly sees spirituality and philosophy in the poems of Chinmay and Khyat Singh Chauhan finds variations and many raptures or emotions in the verses of Chinmay Sayar
It is better I provide an introductory note on a discussion of Philosophy and Literature: Poets and Philosophers as under (Ref-1) :
“ Throughout history, and not least in the modern period, where genres and disciplines have become blurred, poets and philosophers have inspired one another reciprocally. Sometimes the philosophers reveal how their most essential insights could never have been reached without the suggestions envisioned by some–at least for them–elect poet. Furthermore, in some cases, powerful philosophical interpretations of poetic masterpieces have founded new modes of thinking and experiencing or shaped entire epochs of culture, defining their distinctive outlooks”
If the poet sees amazing attractive smell in sweating, Nautiyal is right in recommending chinmay Sayar as philosophical poet. At the same time when Chinmay Sayar says that :
Mafiya kanunau dhaji udaik chatkanu ch
Ar neta
Kanunai dhauni ma baithik sapkanu ch
Khyat singh Chauhan rightly tells that Chinmay sayar has variation in the subjects of his Garhwali verses.
As far as the poems of latest poetry collection ‘Anaur’ (2010) by Chinmay Sayar are concerned , they are in varied in nature , style and narration .There are forty poems selected in this volume and some poems are old from earlier four poetry collections by Chinmay and many are latest creation .
The subject varies poem to poem in this volume of Sayar. The subject are related to spirituality, wrong happenings in the social life, political life, very good happening in the nature and many poems are showing frustrating conditions at all levels.
There are raptures as love, humour, laughing, disguise, peace, paradoxes, frustrations, zeal, apprehension, cruelty, hope, hopelessness and many more emotions in the poems of Sayar .
The for of poems are also of varied in style and format. There are Kundaliyan , Doha (couplets), geet (lyrics), ksanikayen (short poems) and prose poem (hybrid of poem and prose) in this volume.
The language is very much with full of dialects of Rikhnikhal (Tahseel Lansdowne ) and many supporters of so called Standardization in Garhwali Literature will definitely criticize Chinmay Sayar for using Salani dialects, however , this author fully supports Sayar for bringing regional touch in his poetry. Though his poetry is full of Salani dialects, the language of each poems is simple and well understandable by non Salani too.
Over all , the poems of Chinmay are intellectual ones and intellectual genes will enjoy the poems of Sayar of this latest volume

अपना बचपन

तब होती थी मन में उमंग'
दौड़ लगाते डगड़्यौं के संग,
भले लगते थे ऋतुओं के रंग,
मन रहता था मस्त मलंग.

ऊछाद करने पर लगाते थे,
ब्वै बाब बदन में कंडाळी,
खूब खेलते तप्पड़ों में,
इधर उधर मारते फाळी.

सबसे सुन्दर लगते थे,
बचपन में बुरांश के फूल,
निहारते थे हिमालय को,
फिर सब कुछ जाते भूल.

काफळ खूब खाए वन में,
सबसे सुन्दर लगता चाँद,
बोझा ढ़ोते दूर से जब,
दुखने लगती थी काँध.

घुगती, घिंडुड़ी, हिल्वांस जब,
अपना गीत सुनाती थी,
पहाड़ पर फैली हरियाली,
मन को खूब बहती थी.

बचपन में हल खूब लगाया,
बैलों ने तो खूब दौड़ाया,
बजती थी जब स्कूल की घंटी,
घर जाकर फिर बस्ता उठाया.

कौथिग जब आते थे,
मन को बहुत भाते थे,
मिलती थी जब बेटी ब्वारी,
रोते और रुलाते थे.

नमक लेने उस ज़माने,
बद्रीनाथ रोड पर जाते थे,
लौटते थे रात होने पर,
थक के मारे सो जाते थे.

गाँव और समाज में,
बड़ा प्रेम होता था,
दुःख हो या ख़ुशी की बात,
साथ सबका होता था.

प्यारा बचपन बीत गया,
अब लौटकर नहीं आएगा,
दिलाई याद "मेरा पहाड़" पर,
हर कोई यही बताएगा.

Kapali ki Chhamot : Showing Reality and Paradoxes with Messages
(Review of Garhwali Poetry collection “Kapali ki Chhamot” by Dr Mahaveer Prasad Gairola )
Bhishma Kukreti
As the historian remember and praise Estonian poets Betti Alver, Uku Masing, Kersiti Marilaas, Bernard Kangro, Paul Viiding, for their desire to reach a deeper intellectual and emotional level, the Garhwali critics praise dr Mahaveer Prasad Gairola for his desire to reach intellectual level in his poetry. However, these Estonian poets were against ideological coercion and totalitarian concepts, Mahaveer Gairola was for spiritual communism or socialism but he always criticized the ‘difference between ideological saying and real action (implementation) by communists’ in his poems .
Dr Gairola was very prominent signature of Garhwali literature till his death . Dr Gairola was prose(essays, short stories and novel) maker , drama writer and illustrious poet of Garhwali language.
Kapali ki Chhamote is his fist poetry collection published in 1983 Ad. There are sixty one poems in this volume and Tiryali (dialect of Tihri Garhwal especially around old Tihri city ) dialect is the specialty of Dr Gairola . Though many critics as the ditor of Uttarakhand Khabar sar Vimal Negi criticized his uses of Tiryali , this author supported Dr Mahaveer Gairola for protecting regionalism in Garhwali literature. From this volume
the readers will find many Garhwali words , which Garhwalis forgotten due to love for Hindi language as the words Rinmoccha, Banjotta etc
As the title Kapali ki Chhamot ( means to take water from forehead ) suggests that the poet is unhappy about happening near him. The subject of his poems are related to common men and human beings but the narration is for intellectuals . This is one reasons that he was always sought for intellectual discussion about Garhwali language and literature but the convener seldom called him at Kavi Samelans.
From subject point of , each poem has different subject related to rural Garhwal and humanity. No corner of life in Garhwal is left by Dr Gairola. In simple words, there are sixty one subject narrated in Kapali ki Chhamot’ by dr Mahaveer Prasad Gairola
There is philosophy-spirituality , there is satire, there is flta criticism, there is sadness, there is laughter, there is rage, there is disgust in his poems and above all each poem tells a message directly or indirectly. The poet believes that the poem is not for the enjoying medium for the poet but it should be an instrument for the benifts of the society.
Most of the poems of Dr Gairola in this volume are Gady Shaili (prose oriented ) but are enjoyable.
Famous historian Captain Shur Veer Singh Panwar rightly states that the intellectuals will definitely, enjoy the poems of Dr Gairola . Famous Hindi literature critic Manohar Lal Uniyal ‘Shriman’ praised Dr Mahaveer Gairola for creating such marvelous pieces of poems in Garhwali language and stated that most of poems are having the same standard as the contemporary Hindi poems of eighties . The renowned Garhwali literature historian and critic Abodh Bandhu Bahuguna praised these poems for his philosophical and idealism narration in simplest words.

Bhishma Kukreti
The languages are dying and the reasons may be many. After British took over the rule of Kumaun and Garhwal, regions , the dying process for Kumauni and Garhwali languages also started. The speedy migration, the ignoring attitude of the state authorties and no economical benefits from the two major languages of Uttarakhand , there is progressive loss of speakers of the both the languages . The learned scholars of Uttarakhand are afraid that Kumaoni and Garhwali languages may be in endangered conditions after seventy five years. Therefore, there are people who are busy to find out strategies and tactics for protecting these more than two thousand years old languages of India.
One of the best suited strategies is the unity among Kumaoni and Garhwali creative for safeguarding the interest of two one of the oldest languages of India that is Kumaoni and Garhwali languages . There are magazines and newspapers , which publish the Garhwali and Kumaoni literature together and by that there is a creation of unity among the Garhwali and Kumaoni creative .

Goodwin . The famous critic and admirer of such practices Kevin MacNeil writes about the book ‘Two sides of the pass, two languages, two poetic sensibilities – and one uniquely appealing poetry collection. Bridging the symbolic pass are Gaeldom’s most under-appreciated bard, the outstanding Maoilios Caimbeul, and his near-neighbor, the keen-eyed relative newcomer, Mark O. Goodwin. Between them they give choral voice to a rich and many-sided world. Their masterfully composed scenery will feel like a place of homecoming to native and stranger alike.'

( Review of Kumaoni-Garhwali poetry collection Danda kantha swar edited by Dr Gajendra Batohi )
Bhishma Kukreti
Danda Kantha Swar the poetry collection of various poets has two significances . First this volume is the first ever volume wherein the Kumaoni and Garhwali poems are edited in one volume first time . Secondly, the volume is dedicated to martyrs of Kargil battle and each contributing poet offers the poem related to war. This is first verse volume in both language that poems are related to war.
When professor of Hindi language in Mumbai University , Dr Manjula Dhoundiyal read few poems of Danda Kantha Swar and the contents of the volume, she immediately told, “ This volume is as important as ‘Muse of War’ ( War Poetry Collection, 1917) or the war related huge poetry collection (1971) at Central Library Brigham”
Dr Manjula Dhoundiyal is right in her remarks. This poetry volume reminds the readers the war and patriotism related poems of famous poets as Bertolt Brecht , John Davidson, Thomas Moore, Thomas Hardy, Yahuda Amichai , Allen Ginsberg, Willium Butler Yeats , Sir Walter Scott , Charlotte Smith, Elizabeth Barrett Browning , Robert Browning , Robert Burns ,William Topaz McGonagall ,Mary Darby Robinson , William Cowper , John Dryden , Henry Lawson ,Joyce Kilmer , Walt Whitman ,James Whitcomb Riley , Hugh Henry Brackenridge , John Trumbull , Ivan Donn Carswell for poetic description of the need of fighting for the country, the pain of family members of martyrs , the pride , the sacrifice of life , the usefulness of peace and son on.
The volume is not only very important because it has poems related to Kargil war , Garhwal Rifle or the sacrifices of Uttarakhandis for their motherland in various wars but it has very significance that ‘Danda Kantha Swar’ is the first ever effort to publish the poetries of various poets of two main languages of Uttarakhand that is Kumaoni and Garhwali . Uttarakhandis will always appreciate Gajendra Batohi
In this historical volume, there are Kumaoni poems of
M.D Andola (Kumaoni), Kirti Ballabh Shata ( Kumaoni), Kedar Singh Kunjwal (Kumaoni), Kailash lohni (Kumaoni), Ganesh Pandey Gajendra Batohi, Gopal Datt Bhatt , Jagdish Joshi, Jagmohan Jeena, Damodar Joshi, Devki Mehra, Navin Chand Joshi, P C Pandey, Dr Pusp Lata Bhatt , Bansidhar Pathak Jigyasu, Bahadur Bora ‘ ShriBandhu’, Vishan Datt Joshi, Mathura Datt Mathpal, Mahendra Joshi, Mahindra Matiyani, Yogendra Joshi, Vineeta Joshi : Veenu”, Vishnu Shashtra ;Saral’, Sherda Anpadh, Shr Singh Bisht, Hem Chandra Tripathi, Hemant Bisht and there are Garhwali poems of Chandi prasad Bangwal, , Chatar Singh Chauhan ‘Gurudev’, Tota Ram Dhoundiyal, Darshan Bisht, Dharma Nand Uniyal, Preetam Apchhyan, Beena Benjwal, Mangla Kothiyal, Mahaveer Prasad Gairola, Mahaveer Rawalta, Mahendra Dhyani, Rakesh Chand Nautiyal, Shakuntala Ishtwal, Shashi Bhusan Badoni, Sher Singh Rawat Gadhdesi, Satya Nand Badoni ‘ajak’.

There are other subject poems too in Dnad Kantha Swar but most of the poems are war based poems . There are following thematic war poems in this volume:
1- Call for people
2-Motherland,
3-Pain of separation,
4-Praise of martyrs
5- Sacrifice for country and Trio Colour Flag
6- Message of a soldier to his wife and sacrifice of women folks
7- Patriotism

There are many poems which are not related to war but are of various subjects related to rural Uttarakhand as loss from migration, discriminations against women, environment etc
On the whole , each poem is capable for creating different mood and emotions in the reader’s mind.
This is appreciable task to offer the literature of both the main languages of Uttarakhand state and Dr Gajendra Batohi should be congratulated for his efforts in calling poems from Kumaoni and Garhwali poets , editing and publishing them successfully .

Dheet : The poems of Realism and Experiencing
(Review of Garhwali poetry collection ‘Dheet; of Dr Narendra Gauniyal)
Bhishma Kukreti
Madan Duklan an eminent poet and critic of Garhwali poetry says that the work of Dr Narendra Gauniyal in Garhwali poetry ia equal to the works of Irish poets Spikes Milligan , C S Lewis, Seamus Heaney, Eamon Grennan , Evan Boland, Eileen Carney Hulme, James Joyce for making Irish poetry modern and taking the Irish poetry to the International level.
The works of Dr Narendra Gauniyal is the result of Dhad Poetry Movement in rural Garhwal and love for his motherland Garhwal. Gauniyal praises his motherland, a tender love. When the kind hearted poet experiences wrong happening from various agencies, groups or individuals dr Gauniyal expresses the pain through his modern styled poems.
Dr Narendra Gauniyal is born on 10 th December 1964 in Jamandhar of Gujud patti of Pauri Garhwal.
Narendra is medical practitioner by profession and he sings a kind of beauty that shows the realism of rural Garhwal and his own experiences about changing the human society from the angles of cultural, social, political human values . There is austere grace, simplicity in his poems.
There is pathos in his poems when Gauniyal narrates History of earth and says through his poem Itihas that the kings or army men did not create history but the workmen farmers who dig the lands for agriculture and no historian is interested in searching their hardship and eagerness for creating new human civilization .
Dheet poem is fantastic piece of poem of reality and philosophy and is about describing the ‘Desire ‘ (Dheet) . Pathran a symbolic poem wherein the poet shows the way normal human being forgets those who helped him the most and the helping hands are always in sacrificing mood. The readers will enjoy many other philosophical simple and easily understandable poems in this volume. The style, simple words used in such poems attract the readers and those poems are not just message providers flat poems but compel the readers for deep thinking on the subject of each poem.
Many poets described ‘the Mother’ but Dr Narendra describes the mother’s love and sacrifice differently and with modern style of verse creation.
Many poems of Dr Gauniyal are against the discriminations for female child, women found in the past society and even today, these discriminations persist in the modern society.
Many poems deal directly with life and Gauniyal uses reality as symbols. The poet very much feels the pain of changed environment due to unnecessary disturbances to ecology by human beings ( badlendo mausam ar adhkachi khichadi)
There many small poems in this volume and dr Narendra Gauniyal is perfect in narrating bigger aspect through lowest numbers of words. This quality of explaining big issue in smallest possible words makes Dr Narendra Gauniyal an important signature in Garhwali poetic field .
There are eighty poems of Dr Gauniyal in this volume and each poem has different aspect of life and different taste . The wording is very simple and understandable, The poet uses both type of symbols old and new as well. Many of his imagery poems are of class apart.
Most of his poem are of new school that is prose form but are full of tenderness and lyric taste
Poets Lalit Keshwan, Kanhayalal Dandriyal, Baulya did put the foundation of realism and experimentation in Garhwali poetry and poets as Dr Narendra Gauniyal are able to expand the same legacy .

विकास के लिए पानी

पहाड़ प्यासा रहने लगा है,
सूखते जल स्रोतों के कारण,
पहाड़ पर जब पीने को,
नहीं मिलेगा पानी,
उत्तराखंड के विकास की कल्पना,
कैसे हो सार्थक?
सच में है बेमानी.

जल है तो जीवन है,
ये सच है, नहीं कहानी,
उत्तराखंड के विकास के लिए,
पहाड़ों पर रोकना होगा पानी.

पहाड़, पत्थर और पानी,
उत्तराखंड की ये हैं निशानी,
डगमगाए नहीं अस्तित्व इनका,
जंगलों में झलके जवानी.

अनियंत्रित विकास प्रकृति को,
लीलता और चुनौती देता है,
जो पहाड़ में खलल पैदा करेगा,
लोभी मानव लालच में आकर,
लीलेगा पहाड़ का पर्यावरण,
क्या पर्वतजन ये सब,
किसके विकास के लिए सहेगा,
देखो टिहरी विस्तापितों को.

विकास एक सतत प्रक्रिया है,
जो उत्तराखंड में, आज है जारी,
मानव संसाधन का विकास हुआ,
पहुँच गए सब शहरों की ओर,
अब लौटना है लाचारी.

चुनौती है मानव अस्तित्व के लिए,
पहाड़ पर जल संकलन हो,
क्योंकि पहाड़ पर चाहिए,
"विकास के लिए पानी",
इसके बिना विकास हो,
कहता है कवि "ज़िग्यांसु"
सच नहीं, सचमुच है नादानी.

औजि के मासूम बेटे

औजि जब बूढा हो जाता है,
पिता के अशक्त हो जाने पर,
उसके मासूम बेटे,
अपने पिता की तरह,
बजाते हैं उत्तराखंड का,
पारम्परिक ढोल और दमाऊ,
गांव-गांव जाकर,
शुभ कार्यों में.

अगर बच्चे मासूम हों,
तो गले में बस्ते की जगह,
ढोल और दमाऊ लटक जाता है,
और बजाते हैं गाँव गाँव,
अपने घर को चलाने के लिए,
डडवार और पैसे के लिए,
जिससे जलता है घर का चूल्हा,
पेट की आग बुझाने के लिए.

टिहरी जिले के,
कीर्तिनगर ब्लाक के,
कंटोली गांव के रहने वाले,
मासूम मंजीत और आशीष,
स्कूल जाने के बजाय जाते हैं,
ढोल और दमाऊ बजाने,
जब घर का चूल्हा,
संकट में होता है.

विकास

जितनी तेजी से मैं
चढ़ जाता हूं
गांव की उकाळ
बगैर हांफे हुए
विकास हांफ रहा होता है
सड़क के किनारे
लुढ़के बिजली के पोलों के साथ
ताक रहा होता है
बैठकर ट्रांसफार्मर की तरह उकाळ

पहाड़ी शहरों में
फर्राटे के साथ दौड़ता विकास
जब भी मजबूर किया जाता है उसे
‘एक-जुम्म’ की बजाय
किश्तों में पहुंचता है पहाड़ पर

तरस आता है गांव को
उसकी विवशता पर
और फिर
उठ जाती है एक और मांग
पैदल चलने में तकलीफ होती है उसे
एक सड़क बना दी जाय
जो, पहुंचे सीधे सड़क से गांव तक

विकास! तुम जब भी जाओगे पहाड़
जब भी चढ़ोगे किसी गांव की ‘उकाळ’
बगैर हांफे नहीं चढ़ पाओगे
हांफना तो होगा
यह भी तय मानों।

Ker : Garhwali Poems Showing Contemporary Garhwal
(Review of Garhwali Poetry Collection -Ker of Darshan Singh Bisht )

Separate state Uttarakhand movement gave us many poets as Darshan Singh Bisht .Darhsan Singh Bisht is called an important signature in contemporary Garhwali poetic world and his poetry collection ‘Ker’ tells the reasons for calling Darshan Bisht as shining star of Garhwali literature.
There are one hundred thirty one poems in Ker and each poem tells different situation in Garhwal, Uttarakhand . Being in Garhwal, all his poems are the real experiences of Darshan Singh Bisht. Even when Darshan wishes a happy a new year greeting through his first poem of Ker , the readers feel a pinch of some unwanted happening there in rural Uttarakhand :
Nayai vars ki shubh kamna
Jayan byali, ayan bhol khun ….
Chhuma bau ki galyun khun …..
Pooch madkan wali byaryun khun
Today, common men perceive that politics is sinful deeds and the poet Bisht cautions the women of Garhwal not to be even Pardhani (head of Village Council)
Ja beti! Kalpana Chavla Bani, Bachhendri pal Bani,
Kiran Bedi Bani ..
………
Jogan bani jai par pardhani ni bani
The poet is capable of showing the psychology of the common men in his each poem . In his poem ‘Dosh Kaiku, the poet narrates the situation of passing the bucks on others very effectively.
Ker is is his long poem ,wherein , the poet shows us the differences of past and diminishing cultural and social values in the present societies. The poet also cautions the human society to be in limit (ker) to protect our earth.
Darshan Singh Bisht did not leave any important subject in his poems such as diminishing human values , corruption at lowest level in the state administration and in society too, the burning issue of increase in alcohol consumption in rural Garhwal, putrefying effect of castes in the society, discriminating aspects between male and female child, education system etc.
The poet is worried about new social, political and cultural changes happening because of speedy migration from Garhwal , Uttarakhand
Ju bayli tak chha syal
Wee khaunbagh bangeni
Ham towhee gewaan bideshi
Ikh dutyal panseni
The readers feel smidgen by knowing the new conditions of diminishing values in each part of our life.
The poet is of new gene and all his poems are prose like poems Gadyatmak Shaili) but all poems are having poetic touch or lyrical touch.
The poems of Ker shows that poet is full of vocabulary and knows how to use each word effectively . The poet uses pure garhwali words and it is evident that Darshan Singh Bisht does not care for so called standard Garhwali and uses Salani dialects everywhere.
When most of us are worried that Garhwali language may diminish within fifty seventy years, the poems of Darshan Singh Bisht assure us that Garhwal has rich culture and love for the language that new generation will definitely take care in protecting the language .

As the historians appreciate the poets Lubomir Levchev, Kristin Dimtrova, marin Bodakov, Likodimitrov, Mirela Ivanova , or Gueorgui Borissov for their contribution in Bulgarian poetic field, same way the critics as Tota Ram Dhoundiyal, Lokesh Navani appreciate the work of Darshan Singh Bisht for his contribution in Garhwali literature.
Without doubt, the poems are of high standard and full of contemporary happenings.

Jyundal : Garhwali Poems Showing Aggravating State of Uttarakhand State
(Review of Poetry Collection Jyundal of Dhanesh Kothari )
Bhishma Kukreti

The readers know Dhanesh Kothari as the Garhwali language poet born because of Uttarakhand state movement and Kavita movement in Garhwal by Dhad organization. His poems in his first collection of poems Jyundal are the poems showing frustration, rage, sadness, irritation, hopelessness over the state of a decade old new Uttarakhand state .
The eminent Garhwali poet and critic Virendra Panwar says that the poems of Dhanesh are the poems of awakening to Uttarakhandi.
Dhanesh started the poetry journey when the separate Uttarakhand state movement was on its peak and Dhanesh categorically shows the need, aspiration points for separate Uttarakhand state in a couple of poems in this volume. However, most of the poems in this volumes are pin pointing the non fulfillment of aspirations, anticipates, wishes, needs, utmost necessities of people of Uttarakhand . The poet Dhanesh Kothari lambastes for presnt state of Uttaranchal not only to politicians and authorities but also the people and tell them in plain words to act upon against the politicians or villains with stern punishment:
Tin vote diyale
Tin neta bi binaural
Ab teri ni sundu
At/mar ek khaidai
Dhanesh deals with as many as hundred subjects in this poetry collection , which are burning issues of rural Garhwal and Kumaun. Those burning issues are the deceiving nature of political world, the corrupted administration, the deterring position of villages due to migration, faulty planning spoiling the basic of ecological preposition of Himalaya, increasing imbalances between the riches and living below poverty line , downfalls in the culture and love for own languages and many more. There poems related to social issues, issues related to formal education and informal education taken by the society, water shortage in the land of rivers as Alaknanda , Ganga, Jamuna, Nayar Hinwal etc too in this volume of poetry. Dhanesh uses different images, exclusive symbols and symbolic words or proverbs for narrating each subject differently that all poems become vibrant and compel the readers to read all in one sitting. Dhanesh believes that the job of river is flow and provide fresh water but be within the boundaries too. Same way, Dhanesh uses new symbols but does not hesitate older versions of symbols as “ Laga Khaidai ki”
Dhanesh is expert of describing bigger panorama in few words as famous Urdu poet Nazish Pratapgadhi describes a fearful condition in few words:
Ye bhukh ye jillat ke dere , ye mauto tabahi ke fere
Ab kaun bataye ye sab kuchh, kis samt ishara karte hain
Dhanesh just do not pleads for old orthodox way of thinking but appeal for taking modern ways for betterment of humanity and that is why he choose new style of creation poems in Garhwali. Dhanesh creates poems in all old lyrical style -Geet, non lyrical and atukant poems .
The narrating style of Dhanesh is simple and the readers can connect with the thought of the poet easily . His poems are so vibrant that readers start thinking for some kind of actions . Dhanesh involve readers by many means as emotional exploitation, by sharp satire, by inspirational style and wording . His main aim is to coerce the readers for thinking and be ready for taking some actions.
The present volume Jyundal speaks that the Garhwali language poems are taking new path for becoming competent enough to get recognition among all International languages . The poems of Jyundal provide assurances that very soon garhwali literature will get its due . Definitely , Dhanesh is one of the promising the jewel of Garhwali poetry who will take Garhwali poetry to its zenith.

Review of Poetry Collection “Kutgyali” of Prem Lal Bhatt)
Bhishma Kukreti

As the world poetic history remembers Alexander Pushkin, Andrew Marvell , Carl Sandburg ,David Herbert Lawrence , Edna St. Vincent Millay , ,Edward Lear ,Edgar Allan Poe , Elizabeth Barrett , Emily Dickinson , John Donne , Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Katherine Mansfield , Lord Byron , Matthew Arnold , Oscar Wilde , Percy Bysshe Shelley , Philip Larkin , Pablo Neruda , Rainer Maria Rilke , Robert Burns , Robert Herrick , Robert Frost , Robert Browning , Rudyard Kipling , Theodore Roethke , William Butler Yeats , Walt Whitman , W. H. Auden ,William Shakespeare for their finest way of explaining LOVE through their poetries, world poetry critics will position Prem Lal Bhatt as the poet who initiated creating LOVE related poems differently and exclusively in Garhwali language .
The critics of Garhwali literature ignored the senior Garhwali literature creative Prem Lal Bhatt for gifting his dues for creating new way of poems in Garhwali. The coming generations will remember Prem lal Bhatt for providing new subjects and new of defining many conventional subjects differently and for breaking conventional wisdom too. The latest poetry collection “Kutgyali” of Prem Lal Bhatt is the best example that Bhatt does find new way of explaining things in his own way. Bhatt labeled the love distinctly and is able to break the old wisdom of love explanations in Garhwali poetries. This author never read such poetries regarding love in Garhwali literature and this author wants to congratulate to Prem for creating such marvelous piece of poetries .
Usually, even today, the Garhwali language poets do not leave the shadow of Baldev Prasad Sharma ‘Deen ‘ in describing love from meeting of famous poem ‘Rami Baurani’ and ‘Tu Holi Beera uch Nisi Dandyun Man’ of famous Garhwali poet jeet Singh Negi for describing love-pain of separation. However, Prem Lal Bhatt has been successful in breaking the conformist astuteness about ‘Love’ found in Garhwali poetries whether there is pain of separation or happiness of meeting by the lovers .In fact , his many poems characterize the devotion from the new angles and the poet sees love from new prospective too. After reading all the poetries, the reader will appreciate Prem lal that he has depth knowledge of Indian philosophies - and has knowledge of real Bhakti. It seems that the poet follows both the Narad Bhakti Sutra and the Markenday’s Bhakti Sutra because in some poems the poet argues that the final solution of any love is not result but the target of love is path but in couple of poems the poet supports the theme that get love by any means. According to Narada Bhakti Sutra the aim of love is not result but walking on the love path but Markendaya says that there should be results of each love or devotion.
When some body says that ‘Love is nothing but accepting’ , the poet explains it through many poems in this collection.
When a reader reads the poem “ Va Ek Dristi Kaiki “ of Bhatt the reader will remember the famous quote about love is “ "Age does not protect us from love, But love to some extent protects us from age."
There is definitely difference between desire and achieving the desired aim and Prem lal successfully explains this reality through his poem “Dwee jindagee Samantar”
The poem “ Pyar Vo Bi Pyar Kya” explains the love but differently in these words of a unknown philosopher "Listen to your heart, for it knows the truth"
Corinthians wrote a poem as “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails“ and Prem lal Bhatt elaborates the true sense of of love in his poem “Tu dhadkan jan chhain”
Love is all about accepting and poet writes in Sweekar main”-
Kora kagaj parain daskhat chhan karyan
Teri kwee bi ibarat sweekar ch main
Like this Prem Bhatt explores many internal, known and unknown aspects of love in his forty poems in this collection ‘Kutgyali’
Prem Lal Bhatt brought many new symbols, new wordings, new metaphors/figure of speeches and imagery for Garhwali poems in this collections and the coming generations will definitely appreciate Prem Lal Bhatt for initiating new explanations of love in Garhwali poetries. Prem Lal Bhatt also brought new romances in Garhwali poetry and .became successful in surprising the readers and poets too.
However, this writer is not happy that though there were alternate words in garhwali language, Prem Lal Bhatt used Hindi words unnecessarily in many his poems
The poetries of Kutgyali are of international standard and all the poems are enough proof that th language creator of small population as Garhwali language can create the contemporary literature.

उत्तराखंड कू विकास

होंणु छ पर यनु नि,
कि हमारा तुमारा गौं मा,
द्वारू फर लग्याँ ताळा,
हमारा हाथुन खुलि जौन,
जौं घरु मा नि लग्यन अजौं,
ऊ सदानि आबाद रौन.

जब उत्तराखंड बणि थौ,
सब्यौं का मन मा जगि थै,
सतत विकास की आस,
खेत, खल्याण, गौं, गौळा मा,
होलु मन चैन्दु विकास .

जबरि बिटि हमारू राज्य बणि,
सच मा नेतौं अर चमचौं कू,
होंणु छ असल मा विकास,
जनता जस की तस छ,
हबरि होंणी मन मा निराश.

असली विकास तब होलु,
जब प्रवासी उत्तराखंडी,
अपणा राज्य अर गौं लौटला,
खाला पहाड़ कू कोदु, झंगोरू,
जख्यांन साग पात छौंकला.

आली रौनक गौं गौं मा,
हैन्सलि नीमदरी, तिबारी, डिंडाळि,
होलु छोरौं कू किब्लाट,
या छ सच्चा विकास की झलक,
शायद आपन भी बिंग्याली.

इच्छा सब्यौं की या ही छ,
अपणा राज्य कू हो विकास,
दगड़ा मा उत्तराखंड कू पर्यावरण,
सुरक्षित रौ सदानि या छ आस.

हमारा पहाड़

ऋतु बसंत के रंग में,
रंग गया है,
क्योंकि, रंग बिरंगे फूल,
खिले हुए हैं सर्वत्र,
पाखों,गाड, गदनों और,
गांवों की सारों में,
बह रही है बसंत की बयार.

विचरण कर रहे हैं,
देवभूमि के देवता,
पर्वत शिखरों और,
ताल, बुग्यालों पर,
जहाँ बह रही है,
धीमी-धीमी बासंती हवा,
मन को मदहोश करने वाली.

कहीं दूर से देख रही हैं,
हिंवाली काँठी जैसे,
चौखम्बा, त्रिशूली, पंचाचूली,
नंदाघूंटी, केदारकांठा,
आपस में अंग्वाल मारकर,
हमारे पहाड़ पर छाए बसंत को,
जिसने उन्हें आकर्षित कर लिया है,
लेकिन, वो बेखबर है.

प्रियतमा बिन उदास होता है बसन्त

प्रियतमा बिन उदास होता है बसन्त
ढलका कर ओंस की बूंद रोता है बसन्त

सुबह उडारी भरते पंछी भी लौट आते हैं
सांझ में खुद को अकेला पाता है बसन्त

खिलखिलाने को होती है जब भी जोर-जबर
हंसने से खुद को रोक जाता है बसन्त

इस आबो-हवा में कैसे जीने का मन करे
आसमान को ताकने पर डर जाता है बसन्त

ऐसे लाल, हरे, पीले, नीले होने से क्या फायदा
शायद आयेगी बहार ‘धनेश’ इन्तजार में रहता है बसन्त॥

बसंत

बसंत
हर बार चले आते हो
ह्‍यूंद की ठिणी से निकल
गुनगुने माघ में
बुराँस सा सुर्ख होकर

बसंत
दूर डांड्यों में
खिलखिलाती है फ्योंली
हल्की पौन के साथ इठलाते हुए
नई दुल्हन की तरह

बसंत
तुम्हारे साथ
खेली जाती है होली
नये साल के पहले दिन
पूजी जाती है देहरी फूलों से
और/ हर बार शुरू होता है
एक नया सफर जिन्दगी का

बसंत
तुम आना हर बार
अच्छा लगता है हम सभी को
तुम आना मौल्यार लेकर
ताकि
सर्द रातों की यादों को बिसरा सकूं
बसंत तुम आना हर बार॥

ऋतु बसंत में

पीली साड़ी पहन,
ऋतु बसंत में,
पहाड़ के एक पाखे में,
काट रही वह घास,
सोच रही लौटेंगे वे,
बहुत दिनों से दूर हैं,
बसंत की बयार आने से,
मन में जगि है आस.

कोलाहल करते पोथ्ले,
तोता, घुघती, हिल्वांस,
फूलों के लिए फूल्यारी,
घूम रहे खेतों और पाखों में,
फूल रही है सांस.

खिले हैं सर्वत्र बण में,
साखिनी, बुरांश,गुरयाळ,
ऋतु बसंत के रंग में रंगे,
हमारे प्यारे मुल्क
रंगीलो कुमाऊँ,
और छबीलो गढ़वाळ.

अलकनंदा

एक नदी ही नहीं,
सभ्यता और संस्कृति,
संजोए है पहाड़ की,
अपने में समाहित करके,
बह रही है निरंतर,
युगों से पहाड़ पर,
अल्कापुरी से सागर तक.

कल्पना करो,
यदि अलकनंदा नहीं होती,
तो पंच प्रयाग नहीं होते,
आस्तिक हमारे देश के,
पवित्र स्नान करके,
तटों पर इसके,
शुभ पर्वों पर,
पाप कैसे धोते?

निर्मल नीर अलकनंदा का,
कहीं कोलाहल करते हुए,
निरंतर बहता जाता,
प्रदूषित नहीं करना मुझे,
सन्देश अपना बताता.
