Dr. Murari Lal Sharma has rarely allowed his writings to be published. Here I would like to thank Mrs. Nishi Sharma author’s eldest daughter for her collection of his father’s writings which she made available to us for reading and have some extract published here. I strongly feel that Dr. Murari Lal Sharma’s writings are no less than any other legendary writer, whom we know today. Here I could not resist my desire to let you know about his writings & so some very small pieces of his writings are here:-
(Please read all the following writings as are in Hindi.)
O DEEPAK TUM JALTE RAHNA!
Annginat pralobhan ke ghere main jab maanav ghabra jaaye.
Prayatn kare bharsak lekin tab bhee chhuttkara na paaye…..
Tab us niraashrit maanav ko tu uski rah jataa dena.
Uske man ke andhiaare main phir se jagmag jyote jagaa dena.
ओ दीपक तुम जलते रहना !
अनगिनत प्रलोभन के घेरे में जब मानव भाबरा जाए,
प्रयत्न करे भरसक लेकिन तब भी छुटकारा ना पाए,
तब उस निराश्रित मानव को तू उसकी राह जता देना,
उसके मन के अंधियारे में फिर से जगमग ज्योत जगा देना ॥
Main kharaa vibharaant sa kuch kar raha hoon prarthnaayen.
Mat karo he dev kshat-vikshat meri sab bhavnaayen.
मैं खड़ा विभ्रांत सा कुछ कर रहा हूँ प्रार्थनाएँ,
मत करो हे देव क्षत-विक्षत मेरी सब भावनाएँ।
DESH KO NAVEEN TYAAG CHAAHIYE!
Unnati devi hai bhookhi tyaag ki.
Bali ka hai bhaar tumpe tyaagiyon,….
Dil main ab sulagani aag chaahiye,
Desh ko naveen tyaag chaahiye.
देश को नवीन त्याग चाहिए !
उन्नति देवी है भूखी त्याग की,
बाली का है भर तुमपे त्यागियों,
दिल में अब सुलगनी आग चाहिए,
देश को नवीन त्याग चाहिये।
Nisshtthurr mujhe todkar toone
Mera hridya dukhaaya kayon.
Churmur kar mam pankhdiyon ko
Avni par bikhraaya kayon.
Author has also written poetry on Natural Beauty and for kids. A brief of some are below:-
Ghanghor ghata jab chhaati hai
Moron ka man harshaati hai
Tab apni khushi dikhaane ko
Man ka ullaas bataane ko….
Aik bar kale kavve ko
Badi jor ki pyas lagi
Paani peene ki ichchhaa se
Firta tha vah gali gali.
ARAB AUR USKA OONT!
Sheetkal ki aik rat ko
Badi bhayanak thand padi
Thandi vaayu ke jhonkon se
Deekh rahi thi maut khadi.
Author has also written some critics, but he believes these are his personal views and he is not intended to hurt feelings of any part of society. A brief of some are below:-
Following lines were written by author for Adhyapak Divas describing the current scenario in schools and colleges about teachers.
ADHYAPAK KA SAMMAAN KARO!
Hum aaj punah aikatrit hain
Adhyapak divas manaane ko
Hain bahut rinni hum guruyon ke
Yah aadambar dikhlane ko
Extract from ‘Neeras Ki Shri Geeta’:-
DHRATRAASHTRA NE KAHA:
Dharmkshetra us kurukshetra main maha samar ki chaah liye
Aikatrit mam sut ‘O’ Pandav ne Sanjay kaya karm kiye
SANJAY NE KAHA:
Vayuh rachna se yukt dekh Pandav ki sena ko us kshannPandav ka yah Drupad putra apne hi chatur kshishya dwara
Guru Dron ke nikat pahunch kar yun bole narup Duryodhan
Vayuhakar khara Aacharya! dekho dal vishal sara…….
