मुगल काल में पैदा हुआ वो बालक कहलाया राणा
होते जौहर चित्तौड़ दुर्ग फिर बरसा मेघ बन के राणा

हरमों में जाती थीं ललना बना कृष्ण द्रौपदी का राणा
रौंदी भूमि ज्यों कंस मुग़ल बना कंस को अरिसूदन राणा

छोड़ा था साथियों ने भी साथ चल पड़ा युद्ध इकला राणा
चेतक का पग हाथी मस्तक ज्यों नभ से कूद पड़ा राणा

मानसिंह भयभीत हुआ जब भाला फैंक दिया राणा
देखी शक्ति तप वीर व्रती हाथी भी कांप गया राणा

चहुँ ओर रहे रिपु घेर देख सोचा बलिदान करूँ राणा
शत्रु को मृगों का झुण्ड जान सिंहों सा टूट पड़ा राणा

देखा झाला यह दृश्य कहा अब सूर्यास्त होने को है
सब ओर अँधेरा बरस रहा लो डूबा आर्य भानु राणा

गरजा झाला के भी होते रिपु कैसे छुएगा तन राणा
ले लिया छत्र अपने सिर पर अविलम्ब निकल जाओ राणा

हुंकार भरी शत्रु को यह मैं हूँ राणा मैं हूँ राणा
नृप भेज सुरक्षित बाहर खुद बलि दे दी कह जय हो राणा
कह नमस्कार भारत भूमि रक्षित करना रक्षक राणा!

चेतक था दौड़ रहा सरपट जंगल में लिए हुए राणा
आ रहा शत्रुदल पीछे ही नहीं छुए शत्रु स्वामी राणा

आगे आकर एक नाले पर हो गया पार लेकर राणा
रह गए शत्रु हाथों मलते चेतक बलवान बली राणा

Chetak

ले पार गया पर अब हारा चेतक गिर पड़ा लिए राणा
थे अश्रु भरे नयनों में जब देखा चेतक प्यारा राणा

अश्रु लिए आँखों में सिर रख दिया अश्व गोदी राणा
स्वामी रोते मेरे चेतक! चेतक कहता मेरे राणा!

हो गया विदा स्वामी से अब इकला छोड़ गया राणा
परताप कहे बिन चेतक अब राणा है नहीं रहा राणा

सुन चेतक मेरे साथी सुन जब तक ये नाम रहे राणा
मेरा परिचय अब तू होगा कि वो है चेतक का राणा!

अब वन में भटकता राजा है पत्थर पे सोता है राणा
दो टिक्कड़ सूखे खिला रहा बच्चों को पत्नी को राणा

थे अकलमंद आते कहते अकबर से संधि करो राणा
है यही तरीका नहीं तो फिर वन वन भटको भूखे राणा

हर बार यही उत्तर होता झाला का ऋण ऊपर राणा
प्राणों से प्यारे चेतक का अपमान करे कैसे राणा

एक दिन बच्चे की रोटी पर झपटा बिलाव देखा राणा
हृदय पर ज्यों बिजली टूटी अंदर से टूट गया राणा

ले कागज़ लिख बैठा, अकबर! संधि स्वीकार करे राणा
भेजा है दूत अकबर के द्वार ज्यों पिंजरे में नाहर राणा

महाराणा-प्रताप

देखा अकबर वह संधि पत्र वह बोला आज झुका राणा
रह रह के दंग उन्मत्त हुआ कह आज झुका है नभ राणा

विश्व विजय तो आज हुई बोलो कब आएगा राणा
कब मेरे चरणों को झुकने कब झुक कर आएगा राणा

पर इतने में ही बोल उठा पृथ्वी यह लेख नहीं राणा
अकबर बोला लिख कर पूछो लगता है यह लिखा राणा

पृथ्वी ने लिखा राणा को क्या बात है क्यों पिघला राणा?
पश्चिम से सूरज क्यों निकला सरका कैसे पर्वत राणा?

चातक ने कैसे पिया नदी का पानी बता बता राणा?
मेवाड़ भूमि का पूत आज क्यों रण से डरा डरा राणा?

भारत भूमि का सिंह बंधेगा अकबर के पिंजरे राणा?
दुर्योधन बाँधे कृष्ण तो क्या होगी कृष्णा रक्षित राणा?

अब कौन बचायेगा सतीत्व अबला का बता बता राणा?
अब कौन बचाए पद्मिनियाँ जौहर से तेरे बिन राणा?

यह पत्र मिला राणा को जब धिक्कार मुझे धिक्कार मुझे
कहकर ऐसा वह बैठ गया अब पश्चाताप हुआ राणा

चेतक झाला को याद किया फिर फूट फूट रोया राणा
बोला इस पापकर्म पर तुम अब क्षमा करो अपना राणा

और लिख भेजा पृथ्वी को कि नहीं पिघल सके ऐसा राणा
सूरज निकलेगा पूरब से, नहीं सरक सके पर्वत राणा

चातक है प्रतीक्षारत कि कब होगी वर्षा पहली राणा
भारत भूमि का पुत्र हूँ फिर रण से डरने का प्रश्न कहाँ?

भारत भूमि का सिंह नहीं अकबर के पिंजरे में राणा
दुर्योधन बाँध सके कृष्ण ऐसा कोई कृष्ण नहीं राणा

जब तक जीवन है इस तन में तब तक कृष्णा रक्षित राणा
अब और नहीं होने देगा जौहर पद्मिनियों का राणा!

    Very nice narration. Maharana Paratap was a great patriot and nationalist. We need likes of him more in today’s India.

    Blessings to you for your words.

    Very nice poem. Thanks.

    One of my hindi teacher at my school taught us a hindi poem on Maharana Partap. I just remember one line of the poem – It is about Maharana Partap wife who tells Maharana to not to send any treaty letter to Akbar no matter what ever adverse situations they have to face. She said to Maharana Partap:
    जब तू ही शत्रु से संिध करेगा तो िफर कौन भला भारत का बोझा माथे पर लेगा 
    There was so much power and a lesson in this simple sentence.
    If someone knows whole poem, please share it here. It will be so great to read the whole poem. Thanks so much.

    I would like to share a note written by a French correspondent – Francois Gautier that I received in my inbox.

    ” Garv se kaho hum Hindu Hain”

    Is there such a thing as ‘Hindu terrorism’, as the arrest of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur for the Malegaon blasts may tend to prove? Well, I guess I was asked to write this column because I am one of that rare breed of foreign correspondents — a lover of Hindus! A born Frenchman, Catholic-educated and non-Hindu, I do hope I’ll be given some credit for my opinions, which are not the product of my parents’ ideas, my education or my atavism, but garnered from 25 years of reporting in South Asia (for Le Journal de Geneve and Le Figaro).
    In the early 1980s, when I started freelancing in south India, doing photo features on Kalaripayattu, the Ayyappa festival, or the Ayyanars, I slowly realised that the genius of this country lies in its Hindu ethos, in the true spirituality behind Hinduism. The average Hindu you meet in a million villages possesses this simple, innate spirituality and accepts your diversity, whether you are Christian or Muslim, Jain or Arab, French or Chinese. It is this Hinduness that makes the Indian Christian different from, say, a French Christian, or the Indian Muslim unlike a Saudi Muslim. I also learnt that Hindus not only believed that the divine could manifest itself at different times, under different names, using different scriptures (not to mention the wonderful avatar concept, the perfect answer to 21st century religious strife) but that they had also given refuge to persecuted minorities from across the world—Syrian Christians, Parsis, Jews, Armenians, and today, Tibetans.
    In 3,500 years of existence, Hindus have never militarily invaded another country, never tried to impose their religion on others by force or induced conversions. You cannot find anybody less fundamentalist than a Hindu in the world and it saddens me when I see the Indian and western press equating terrorist groups like SIMI, which blow up innocent civilians, with ordinary, angry Hindus who burn churches without killing anybody. We know also that most of these communal incidents often involve persons from the same groups—often Dalits and tribals—some of who have converted to Christianity and others not. However reprehensible the destruction of Babri Masjid, no Muslim was killed in the process; compare this to the ‘vengeance’ bombings of 1993 in Bombay, which wiped out hundreds of innocents, mostly Hindus.

    Yet the Babri Masjid destruction is often described by journalists as the more horrible act of the two.
    We also remember how Sharad Pawar, when he was chief minister of Maharashtra in 1993, lied about a bomb that was supposed to have gone off in a Muslim locality of Bombay.
    I have never been politically correct, but have always written what I have discovered while reporting. Let me then be straightforward about this so-called Hindu terror. Hindus, since the first Arab invasions, have been at the receiving end of terrorism, whether it was by Timur, who killed 1,00,000 Hindus in a single day in 1399, or by the Portuguese Inquisition which crucified Brahmins in Goa. Today, Hindus are still being targeted: there were one million Hindus in the Kashmir valley in 1900; only a few hundred remain, the rest having fled in terror. Blasts after blasts have killed hundreds of innocent Hindus all over India in the last four years. Hindus, the overwhelming majority community of this country, are being made fun of, are despised, are deprived of the most basic facilities for one of their most sacred pilgrimages in Amarnath while their government heavily sponsors the Haj. They see their brothers and sisters converted to Christianity through inducements and financial traps, see a harmless 84-year-old swami and a sadhvi brutally murdered. Their gods are blasphemed. So sometimes, enough is enough.

    At some point, after years or even centuries of submitting like sheep to slaughter, Hindus—whom the Mahatma once gently called cowards—erupt in uncontrolled fury. And it hurts badly. It happened in Gujarat. It happened in Jammu, then in Kandhamal, Mangalore, and Malegaon. It may happen again elsewhere. What should be understood is that this is a spontaneous revolution on the ground, by ordinary Hindus, without any planning from the political leadership. Therefore, the BJP, instead of acting embarrassed, should not disown those who choose other means to let their anguished voices be heard.
    There are about a billion Hindus, one in every six persons on this planet. They form one of the most successful, law-abiding and integrated communities in the world today. Can you call them terrorists?

  4. Rashmi says

    Indians or Hindus have been at the receiving end since last 2000 years be it muslims,christias or anybody. This news from Niticentral is a proof to this .
    This newson Goa inquisition is a proof to this.

    His Majesty the king has ordered that there shall be no Brahmins in his land and that they should be banished.”

    “In the name of his Majesty I order that no Hindu can or shall perform marriages…”

    “The marriages of the supplicants are superstitious acts or functions which include Hindu rites and ceremonies as well as cult, adoration and prayers of Hindu temples…”

    “I order that no Hindu temples be erected in any of the territories of my King… and that Hindu temples which already have been erected be not repaired…”

    Anybody familiar with the brutalisation of Hindu customs and practices, indeed Hindu faith and belief, in fact, Hindu society, could mistakenly believe these extracts have been taken from royal decrees issued during Muslim rule. The harshness with which suppression is prescribed in these decrees, the callous disregard that is advocated for the other’s sentiment, the cruelty that is so palpable in both thought and action, suggest that these firman could have been issued by one of the ‘Shadows of God’ who ruled this land, laying to waste Hindu lives and temples in the name of faith.

    But these are not extracts from firman issued by the Mughal court of, say, Alamgir Abul Muzaffar Muhi u’d-Din Mohammed Aurangzeb, popularly known as Emperor Aurangzeb. They have been excerpted from firman issued by the Portuguese who ruled Goa and recognised no religion other than Christianity as the legitimate means of communion with god. It was no secular rule that they imposed, but a ruthless system of pillage disguised as trade and a cruel administration for whom Hindus were nothing more than “supplicants” to be crushed into submission or exiled into oblivion.

    The horrors inflicted on Galileo Galilei by the Inquisition — the Vatican has now admitted that the Church was wrong and Galileo was right — are well known. Not that well-known, and tragically so, are the hideous crimes committed by the Goa Inquisition. Every child reads about Galileo’s trial and how it is symbolic of the triumph of science over faith. But there is no reference — indeed, all reference is scrupulously avoided, most of it has been diligently erased from our collective memory by our eminent historians who have diligently sanitised the past of its discomfiting facts — to the brutal attempts of the Church to stamp out Hinduism in the territories controlled by the Portuguese in India.

    And this silence is not because there exists no evidence: There exist, in full text, orders issued by the Portuguese Viceroy and the Governor. There exist, in written records and travelogues, penned not by the persecuted but by the persecutors, full details of the horrors perpetrated in the name of Christ the Compassionate. Hindus who dared oppose the persecution were punished, swiftly and mercilessly. Those who were fortunate got away with being banished. The less fortunate had their property seized and auctioned — the money was used, in large measures, for furthering proselytisation. The least fortunate were forced to serve as slave labour on the galleys that transported loot from Indian shores to Portuguese coffers.

    Viceroy D Constantine de Braganca issued an order on April 2, 1560, instructing that Brahmins should be thrown out of Goa and other areas under Portuguese control. They had a month’s time to sell their property — it is obvious who gained from such distress sale. Those found violating the viceregal order, it was declared, would have their properties seized. Another order was issued, this time by Governor Antonio Morez Barreto, on February 7, 1575, decreeing that the estates of Brahmins whose “presence was prejudicial to Christianity” would be confiscated and used for “providing clothes to the New Christians”.

    The attitude of the Portuguese administrators in India and the Church hardened over the years, to a point where each fiat, each decree, each order, each letter, became an instrument of religious persecution. The Third Concilio Provincial — a gathering of bishops and other clerics — met in 1585 to review, among other things, the progress of converting the ‘heathens’ to the ‘only faith’. The Concilio adopted a resolution which said, “His Majesty the king has on occasion ordered the Viceroys and Governors of India that there should be no Brahmins in his lands, and that they should be banished therefrom together with the physicians and other infidels who are prejudicial to Christianity, after taking the opinion of the Archbishop and other religious persons who have experience in the matter. As the orders of His Majesty in this regard have not been executed, great impediments in the way of conversion and the community of New Christians have followed and continue to follow.”

    One can quote from many other orders, resolutions and instructions that resulted in the hideous Vatican-backed Goa Inquisition. The details are not unknown to most of us; they are definitely well known to the Vatican. The reason I have raised the issue of the Goa Inquisition is two-fold. First, Pope Benedict XVI and other princes of the Church should bear in mind the horrors inflicted on Hindus in the name of Christianity before they allege intolerance towards Christians. Second, the Vatican owes an apology for the crimes committed during the Goa Inquisition; it must apologise and repent for its misdeeds against Hindus and gross attempts to stamp out Hinduism. Not to do so would amount to continued endorsement of the crimes and the unfair practices of missionaries that still continue unabated and unreformed.

    Fifteen years ago, the Vatican issued a 14-page document, ‘apologising’ and ‘repenting’ for not doing enough to save Europe’s Jews from the Holocaust. While it is common knowledge that Pope Pius XII did not feel particularly appalled by Hitler’s ‘final solution’, the Vatican claimed in its 1998 document that he was unaware of the concentration camps, the mass slaughter, the gas chambers and the furnaces. The document, understandably, failed to impress Jews who made it clear that Pope Benedict XVI was not welcome to visit Israel unless he offered an unqualified apology and made public documents of that period which are now stored in the Vatican’s archives. The Vatican may have eliminated the phrase “perfidious Jews” from its liturgy and Pope John Paul II may have made it fashionable for the Pontiff to refer to Jews as “older brothers”, these are seen as no more than meaningless, insincere gestures.

    The purpose of securing an apology for the Goa Inquisition is not to belittle the Vatican, but to drive home the point that it cannot seek to occupy the moral high ground till such time it has apologised and atoned for the sins committed against Hindus – individually and collectively. If the Vatican can say sorry to others, there is no reason why it cannot say sorry to Hindus. Their faith is no less than those of the Book.

    another poem to maharana pratap by श्यामनारायण पाण्डेय which i have read around 10th class
    here are only some stanzas
    रण बीच चौकड़ी भर-भर कर
    चेतक बन गया निराला था
    राणाप्रताप के घोड़े से
    पड़ गया हवा का पाला था

    जो तनिक हवा से बाग हिली
    लेकर सवार उड़ जाता था
    राणा की पुतली फिरी नहीं
    तब तक चेतक मुड़ जाता था

    गिरता न कभी चेतक तन पर
    राणाप्रताप का कोड़ा था
    वह दौड़ रहा अरिमस्तक पर
    वह आसमान का घोड़ा था

    था यहीं रहा अब यहाँ नहीं
    वह वहीं रहा था यहाँ नहीं
    थी जगह न कोई जहाँ नहीं
    किस अरिमस्तक पर कहाँ नहीं

    निर्भीक गया वह ढालों में
    सरपट दौडा करबालों में
    फँस गया शत्रु की चालों में

    बढ़ते नद-सा वह लहर गया
    फिर गया गया फिर ठहर गया
    विकराल वज्रमय बादल-सा
    अरि की सेना पर घहर गया

    भाला गिर गया गिरा निसंग
    हय टापों से खन गया अंग
    बैरी समाज रह गया दंग
    घोड़े का ऐसा देख रंग
