खड़ा हिमालय बता रहा है: सोहनलाल द्विवेदी की गाँधी जी पर कविता

Albert Einstein said about him, “Generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood”. What a phenomenon our Father of the nation was! He took on an empire about which it was said that the “sun never sets on it”, and lead a whole subcontinent to freedom. That too while shunning violence and keeping the moral high ground. He had mesmerized the nation. People looked to him to get cues for what to do. This is beautifully depicted in a classical poem by Sohanlal Dwivedi. An abridged version of this poem venerating Rashtrapita Mahatma Gandhi is here for you to relish.

खड़ा हिमालय बता रहा है: सोहनलाल द्विवेदी

युग युग से है अपने पथ पर
देखो कैसा खड़ा हिमालय,
डिगता कभी न अपने प्रण से
रहता प्रण पर अड़ा हिमालय।

जो जो भी बाधायें आईं
उन सब से ही लड़ा हिमालय,
इसीलिए तो दुनिया भर में
हुआ सभी से बड़ा हिमालय।

अगर न करता काम कभी कुछ
रहता हरदम पड़ा हिमालय,
तो भारत के शीश चमकता
नहीं मुकुट–सा जड़ा हिमालय।

खड़ा हिमालय बता रहा है
डरो न आँधी पानी में,
खड़े रहो अपने पथ पर
सब कठिनाई तूफानी में।

डिगो न अपने प्रण से, तो तुम
सब कुछ पा सकते हो प्यारे,
तुम भी ऊँचे हो सकते हो
छू सकते नभ के तारे।

अचल रहा जो अपने पथ पर
लाख मुसीबत आने में,
मिली सफलता जग में उसको
जीने में मर जाने में।
