यक्ष प्रश्न

Today every essential commodity is being guarded by some handful of people. They misuse the power, which was originally given to them for judicial management of those for good of masses. They abuse the people who really need them, to fulfill their own selfishness and masses are left to anguish.

 हर घाट पे
पहरेदार है
एक अदृश्य यक्ष  ;

उन्ही को उपलब्ध है
झीलों का पावन पवित्र  जल
जो उत्तर जानते हैं
उसके सवालों का .....

पर जिनके सामने
सुरसा के मुख सा फैला है
ज़िन्दगी का सवाल
क्या आश्चर्य की वो अनसुनी कर दें
अदृश्य यक्ष के सवालों को;
या सुने भी तो
वो प्यास  से तड़पते जीव
क्यूँ कर दे पाएंगे ज़वाब
उन बड़े -बड़े गूढ़ सवालों का ।

यानि मरना बदा  है 
या प्यास से
या शाप से
हाँ ! जो खुश कर सकते हैं
यक्ष को
जो दे सकते हैं जवाब
उनके सवालों का
उनके लिए हाज़िर है
पूरा सरोवर ।
उनको दी जा सकती हैं
कुछ और भी रियायतें
यथा जीवन दान
किसी प्रिय बंधू का ,
और यदि समीकरण  सही बैठ गया
फिर तो वल्ले वल्ले ;
आपके सारे बंधू बांधव
स्वस्थ हो जाएंगे-

बिलकुल हृष्ट-पुष्ट ।

The story in background is an excerption from the great epic- "MAHABHARAT". the story is like once during period of excilation PANDAWAS felt thirsty. One by one the went to the pond where a YKSHA asked them to answer there question if the want to take water from the pond, as the pond was under his guard. Thirsty PANDAWAS didn't heed him. and eventually died. At last the eldest brother came who pleased the YAKSHA not only by his answers but also by his conduct. And thus not only he got opertunity to take water but also got lives of his brothers as bonus.

Of course the motto and theme of the original story is not like that depicted here but don't take it other wise.

And if you have read it please let me know your view.
