india's quest to become 'world champion' / 'विश्व विजेता' बनने की राह में

shared by straight point on Sunday, January 18, 2009

हाल ही में जब सहवाग से हिन्दुस्तान के 'विश्व विजेता' बनने के आसार के बारे में पूछा गया तो अपनी सहज स्वभाविकता के साथ उन्होंने कहा...

"चोटी पे पहुँचना फिर भी आसान है, पर वहां टिका रहना काफ़ी मुश्किल, क्योंकि ऊँचाइयों पे हवाएँ तेज चलती हैं..."

यह कविता सहवाग के ईसी वक्तव्य पर आधारित है...


हार का दर्द क्या होता है, जानते हैं
जीत का हुनर भी जानते हैं...
पीछे रह चुके हैं इसलिए
आगे बढ़ने की कीमत क्या है, जानते हैं...

डट कर खेलें तो पा लेंगे हर मुकाम
चोटी पर पहुँच न पाने की टीस क्या होती है, जानते हैं...

मंजिलें सामने हैं, हौंसले परवान पे हैं
पर रास्ते में कितने मोड़ आयेंगे, जानते हैं...

जीत को ही पूजता है ये जहाँ पर
हार कर भी दिल कैसे जीतते हैं, जानते हैं...

विजेता को निर्मम होना पड़ता है पर
जीत कर भी झुककर हाथ बढ़ाने का फ़न, जानते हैं...


(for Hinglish version)


recently when sehwag was asked to comment on india's chances of becoming the top test side, he said with his now trademark simplicity...

it’s easier to get on top but staying at top is the difficult part coz wind flow very fast on top...


my poem is based on his this observation...


haar ka dard kya hota hai, jaante hain
jeet ka hunar bhi jaante hain...
peechche rah chuke hain issliye
aage badhne ki keemat kya hai, jaante hain...


dut kar khelenge toh paa lenge har mookam
choti par pahunch ne paane ki tees kya hoti hai, jaante hain...


manzilen saamne hain, honsle parvaan pe hain
par raaste main kitne mod ayenge, jaante hain...

jeet ko hi poojta hain yeh jahaan par...
haar kar bhi dil kaise jeettay hain, jaante hain...

vijeta ko nirmam hona padta hai par
jeet kar bhi jhook kar haath badhane ka fann, jaante hain...

Sehwag hits very strong whether on ground or off the ground.

He really said well, reaching top is not hard, maintaining top position is hard.

Ya, It looks you have took charge for NC.

Straight Point said...

thanks IB...no one can replace NC... :)

sehwag game and life is based on this simple fanda...

see the ball...hit the ball...

India has a lot more to worry about than just WIND if it wants to reach the top. On a serious note, they are actually not too far off.

Good captain, good bowlers and good potential great batsmen. Good unit.
