BROADER IDENTITY...!

BROADER IDENTITY


Identity, today has become a hot topic in the society. Each and every people wants to know their identity, a quest for Identity is an illusion still people of different caste or religion wants to have their own individual Identity. A quest for Individual or narrower Identity will lead to disintegration of the social and ethical values that has structured our society from it's primitive ages and in the certain course, quest for Broader Identity i.e. "WE" gets lagged behind, when "WE" lags behind Unity among diversed caste and religion starts to find it's place in the Backyards of the society and the only thing that we see is Disintegration.

The society is a place which gives birth to newer Literati's and future aspirants. So how can a society sharpen the future aspirants when the society itself lays emphasis in the quest for absurd Identity. The absurd narrower Identity which has no Plural importance, Absurd narrower Identity which disintegrates our society tied with the knots of Brotherhood... "QUEST FOR NARROWER IDENTITY IS AN ILLUSION". Let me take you to my society, the society which has endowed in me everything that I do presently possess. We have diversed people following different religion, wherein the people or an individual of different caste lays emphasis upon the development of their own community i.e. "I" community and in the course they forget about "WE" community. The Limboo community wants their own Development, the Bhuita Community wants their Community to supersed other community, the Lepcha community also lays emphasis upon "I" development, the Tamang Community has ego problems and wants to grow higher than the other community... How much high does the Tamang community wants to grow, that is still a mystery Chettri, Magar, Rai, Gurung, Newar community etc. Everyone has joined the race, A race for individual or "I" glory. Moreover it's a quest for narrower Identity which is nodoubt an Illusion. I have never confronted a community that lays emphasis on Broader Identity or "WE" Identity but sooner or later I hope I will confront...!

Before I was given a name and the caste which was later added I was a simple human being and it was the society which made me what I am today. I want people to understand the Identity matter in a broader way, I want you to understand that "I"(micro) falls in "WE"(macro)category or you can understand by saying, I am a small unit of my society. So,lastly let us understand the true value of Identity for the wealth to creation lies in "Broader Identity".

SOMEWHERE IN THE WOODS..............Dedicated to the flora and fauna of Sikkim, especially North Sikkim.

SOMEWHERE IN THE WOODS...

As I see the world pass by,
I still wonder all alone.
Surrounded by faces all around,
Yet, aloof I am.
The reminiscence haunts me,
For my past is stucked,
Somewhere in the woods.
The woods, beautiful woods,
Beautiful than the costly life...!


I did roam all alone,
Yet, never felt alone.
The trees, the creepers, the bushes,
accompanied me.
The chirping of the birds
And the murmuring of the cataract...
captured my senses.
Alas! I was lost,
Somewhere in the woods.
The woods, beautiful woods,
Beautiful than the seductive rose and it's life...!


Somewhere in the woods,
I left myself.
Somewhere in the woods,
I lost myself.
Somewhere in the woods...
It's pervasive.


The Zeast - By seeing the raw and aesthetic beauty of my state Sikkim, especially North Sikkim. My mind and the senses got captured by it's primitive beauty and I was lost, for the sound of the cataracts, the chirping of the birds and the raw flora totally dominated and made my heart go completely blind... I owe a deep respect to our natural resources but presently the aesthetic beauty is on the lap of extinction. Though there is Subjectivity in the poem but there is more detached or objective feeling which speaks mainly about the Beauty of North Sikkim which is getting demolished by the on going Hydel-power project...!

DREAM ON............

DREAM ON

People say I dream a lot.
But by dreaming,
I don't mean to say I am a dreamer.
People say life is beautiful
Yet, hardship supersedes.
I work, I pray, I live,
Yet, I die everyday.
Though life is realistic,
But at the end
Everything is a dream.
Today you are born,
Tomorrow you are dead.
Life has completed several stages.
Stages of absurd reality
Devoid of peace.
And I dream on,
But by dreaming,
I don,t mean to say I am a dreamer.


The dream accompanied me to "Eden",
The garden of Utopia.
To the Alps and lonely island.
And by the lagoon,
I flew on and on.
Slowly I did flow above the clouds,
Brighter was the sky
Gentler was the sun.
And down the valleys,
Beneath the murmuring cataract
Through the bluest stream.
I saw a reflection,
In reflection I found myself,
I found reality in my dreams.
And yet devoid of peace,
I still dream on.
But by dreaming,
I don't mean to say I am just a dreamer.............!!!

But by dreaming,
I don't mean to say I am a dreamer". - John Lennon.

PRISONER IN PARADISE

PRISONER IN PARADISE

The world has thrown it's beauty.
From the garden of "Eden"
To the artificial beauy,
The stage where stories are born
The world where every individual wants to prove their wits,
And,the world where a boy and a girl exist.
The law of nature,
Girls are meant for Boys,
Boys meant for girls.
The world full of expectations.
If not fullfilled
It really hurts.

So, the stage is picture perfect.


Juliet got some work today
She just lost her job and is on her way.
Life full of struggles, expectations
That can't be observed or measured,
life isn't easy anymore.
She sees the picture of "Romeo" on th wall,
And remember's the time,
Which has been passed by
Maybe it's the nature's fate
They're all alone, lost in thir own ways.
The past sometimes overshadows her mind,
cause, they ae the children of tomorrow,
Hanging up with yesterdays.
The pain of yasterday has completely,
Yes, completely overshadowed the present,
The raw beauty seems to be artificial
They're completely lost,
The most important fact,
They are the "PRISONER'S IN PARADISE".


Like "Juliet", "Romeo" does miss those days
He misses the stage
Where h did act once,
The days and nights are not the same.
"Romeo" tries to throw his pain.
As it is really tough,
Cause it's buried deep inside his heart.
"Romeo" does still recall his days.
Group of faces and his old college days
He remember's the bright face among them.
His pain gets tougher and tougher
As, "Romeo" recalls his crazy old days
Cause they are the future of tomorrow
Hanging up with yesterdays.
The days are tougher full of pain.
The natural beauty seems to be blunder.
They are completely lost.
Cause, they still are the "PRISONER'S IN PARADISE"

They had their moment in their hands.
But all they wanted was more.
The more we want,
The more expectations increases.
If not fullfilled,
We loose it and the answer
Yes, the answer we get is "MISUNDERSTANDING".
Still they're the "PRISONER'S IN PARADISE"
Far from the Heaven's door.
Yes, thy are the "PRISONER'S IN PARADISE"
Haunted by their arch Nightmare.


FROM THE POET'S DESK-
THE ABOVE POEM IS AN INSPIRED WORK(EUROPE) OF MINE, MINGLED WITH REALISTICAL TOUCH. IT IS A ROMANTIC POEM MANLY DEALING WITH THE LOVE AFFAIRS BETWEEN TWO CHARACTER'S i.e. "ROMEO" & "JULIET"...........THE POEM TELLS ABOUT THE LIFE AFTER THEIR MUTUAL BREAK-UP, FACTORS LIKE EMOTIONAL BREAKDOWN OF A MEN, FRUSTRATION CAN BE CLEARLY READ OUT. THE POEM HAS NO CONNOTATIONS, IT'S SIMPLE , LUCID AND PLAIN AS COMPARED WITH OTHER POEMS OF INTRICATE POETS.



"300"
They marched on and on
They ruled their ages
With a pride being a Spartan,
They would conquer unimaginable heights.
With a sheild of armour and courage within.
They marched on to demolish,
The 300 Spartans marched on to demolish the "Persians"

They conquered the Iron mountain,
Devil hill's and the Satan land.
They would break the path of thee Holiness
And do what their courage wants them to do
The "Persians" marched with the armies,
The armies of entire "Asia"
Yet, they did knew
But their courage was challenging.

The fist site of the war with the "Persians",
They broke down all the barriers.
The anger of courage could be seen,
As they crushed apart the devil's army
And made a mountain of dead Devil's and Satan's.
Few gave their life, few injured
And the one left as a Hermit to Sparta.

The fire can still be seen,
The second site of the war.
Arrows overshadowed the skies
But could not break the shield of armour.
They fought with "XERXES" Asian army,
But The 300 spartans did not bow as a Coward,
Rather died as a Valour.




SUMMARY-
"300" It's basically a movie featuring the past life of the brave army of "Spartacus" or "Sparta" who were referred as "SPARTANS". The raw chivalry that is seen, is the most romantic factor that makes the mind go completely blind. The dominant courage, Virtue, Valour is most prominently featured..............The Hero Leonidus is th sum-total of all the courage,valour and virue. Their words are thought-provoking,dignified and reflective.

The film shows the romance of Chivalry and the Dignity that a man should posess.

HUM....JAYEGA

NAME- DAL BAHADHUR GURUNG.
D.O.B- 1921 A.D.
PLACE OF BIRTH- CHUNGTHUNG TEA GARDEN (DARJEEELING).
DEATH- 1992(APRIL).

Most of the nepali people spread all over the world have heard about "HUMJAYEGA". The Nepali people are very much fond of Humjayega's jokes, from the old person to the children of class-II or class-I studying in schools they're very much familiar with the name. "HUMJAYEGA"............many people even don't know whether "HUMJAYEGA" was a real person or a fictional character..... So this work of mine is kindda tribute and to make people know who "HUMJAYEGA" actually was.


WHO WAS "HUM....JAYEGA"?
"HUMJAYEGA" is nodoubt a humorous comic character that is very much popular among the youths of Nepal, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Doars, Kalimpong, Assam and within the Nepali's spread all over the world. The word "HUM.....JAYEGA" simply means "I will go". Although for some people he might be just a comic fictional character but to tell you about his fact he was a real person, his real name was "Dal Bahadhur Gurung" a.k.a "Humjayega" who was born in the year 1921(pre-independence period) in the tea garden of Chungthung tea garden (Darjeeling), his ancestors were from Panchthar, district of Nepal. It was his grand father Mr. Dhaujbeer Gurung who migrated along with his family in 1814 A.D. from the native land i.e. Nepal and settled in Darjeeling. His father's name was Mr. Man Bahadhur Gurung.
His adolescent life was full of struggle, hardship as he left his studies from third grade itself, his family aws very much poor and due to the factors like frustrations, tensions, he left Darjeeling in search of better livelihood and the result he landed in the crowded streets of "Calcutta" in the year 1936, as he was only 15yrs old. He was in Calcutta looked up by saint called "Prabhuddanda" as he took Humjayega to Bhawanipur an consigned Humjayega to his uncle's cab.
The Second World war was on the air and every unemployed people were seeking employment as a British soldier. So, within this crowd, there was Humjayega himself trying to provve his wits under the same but he failed because he couldn't reply in English to the British Officials, later, with bower of frustrations, he again with the help of British officials, he joined the "Baligung Engineering College" an dstudied there for a year and at last he was recruited in the army. His after life as an army went in a smooth way he was employed as a driver and whenever any British Officials had to go on a long trip, they would ask "who wants to go?" an dat this time he would simply reply...."HUMJAYEGA"(I will go).
After the Indian Independence (1947),he returned Darjeeling in the year 1948 and undertook the same proffesion of a cab driver at the Club Side Motor Stand(Syndicate). In this new circle of friends he was known by his nickname......."HUMJAYEGA".

THere are many small kitties to his name, he was the first man to take the vehicle to the Summit of Tiger-Hill and apart from that he was the first ever person to take a vehicle to Tumling as well.(No cab driver was ready to trudge their vehicles to Tigerhill or Tumling because of the risk of the journey but Humjayega though he was new, he took the vehicle and returned safely). Later, from 1984, he started acting in humorouos Plays, Satires, Films etc. He has even acted in Kollywood Nepali film "KUSUME-RUMAL" and by the help of these factors he criticized the nagative aspects of teh society in a humorous way. He drank excessively, he was very much aware of it but was unable to improve himself. He is survived by his seven daughter's and three sons.
Due to excessive drinking,he lost his life, wealth and the great fictional legend passed away in the year 1992 (april).
