      Friends,

      I present my poem on Sri Arvind Kejriwal as regards certain of my views. It is in Hindi and English (along with the weblink- http://amitabhandnutan.blogspot.in/2013/12/arvind-kejriwal-poem.html ). Some of u would like its content for ur own various reasons.

      Arvind Kejriwal (Poem)

      I have been accused
      by many a friends
      of wavering off and on
      praising and denigrating
      changing my stand
      on the real phenomenon of today-
      the one and only AK,
      Indian Kalashnikov
      for all those Indians
      who see a Nayak,
      a true hero,
      a saviour, a wonder kid,
      and a transformer in him.

      I have been condemned
      I have been vilified
      I have been accused
      I have been laughed at
      I have been scoffed
      and I have been called names
      right since the days
      I opposed Janlokpal
      to the political transformation
      of the man
      who has taken the Nation
      by unimaginable storm.

      I don't fear being maligned
      I don't fear being accused
      being opposed never weakens me
      I like being bullied
      and hence not the problem.

      What really disturbs me
      is whether I have been right
      or I have been wrong
      in evaluating Mr Kejriwal
      as an individual
      and an agent of agent,
      particularly as regards the truthfulness,
      and the genuineness.

      I don't say I have the capacity
      and the required acumen
      to judge an historical figure
      but the fact remains
      that even ordinary people
      can judge extraordinary ones.

      Again I don't claim for once
      any iota of greatness in me
      and acknowledge with openness
      all my limitations, my follies,
      my untruth, my insincerity
      to many a things in life
      but even these deficiencies
      not bar a person
      from evaluating others.

      Now coming to the core issue
      about my allegedly wavering
      about my opinion on Mr K,
      I make it very clear
      never for once I doubted
      his enormous potential
      his limitless thinking
      his huge risk-taking capabilities
      his wonderful self-confidence
      his extraordinary work potential
      his incomparable zeal
      and his ways of
      making his presence felt.

      The only thing that I don't know
      even till date
      is about the genuineness of Mr K,
      the inherent reality
      the truth behind the mask
      the actual self
      and it is on this issue
      I, who know him only remotely,
      have been getting
      very contradictory statements.

      While there are his followers
      and there are his "disciples"
      there are his fans
      and there are ones
      who pin their hopes
      on Mr Arvind Kejriwal
      to whom he is
      the epitome of virtue
      the ultimate man
      Gandhi, Nehru, Tagore
      Vivekananda, Patel et al
      all rolled in one.

      There are his opponents
      who call him a cheat
      who call him a thug
      who openly blame him
      who openly call him names.

      To me both of them
      don't exactly count
      because they rely on hearsay
      and the outside vibes.

      The problem with me
      is that
      a few people
      whom I regard
      and take their words seriously
      as being sensitive
      and being sensible
      are not convinced by him
      while a few others
      again equally sensitive
      and equally sensible
      rate him very high
      while I personally
      over the period
      have seen him
      change his stance
      quite too often
      in public life
      and have seen him
      making such promises
      I find hugely unrealistic
      often blatantly false
      right from the days
      he said Janlokpal
      is the cure of all
      which for sure
      was an utter lie
      again his habit
      of dividing people
      into black and white
      painting others blacks
      and rating himself
      so high and so pure
      as if whiter than snow
      and these facets
      seems to dwindle my faith
      because fundamentals count
      while at the same time
      I want from my heart
      that this man
      who has churned the skies
      actually proves to be true
      to all his words.

      Hence these wavering stands
      for which I don't apologize
      because to err is human
      and human I am.



      अरविन्द केजरीवाल (कविता)

      आरोपित किया गया हूँ
      कई मित्रों द्वारा
      अपने बदलते सुर पर 
      कभी तारीफ़, कभी निंदा
      अपना मत बदलने के लिए  
      आज के समय के अनोखा व्यक्तित्व पर
      एक और सिर्फ एक-एके ,
      अर्थात भारतीय कलाशनिकोव 
      उन सभी भारतियों का 
      जो देखते उसमे नायक 
      एक वास्तविक हीरो 
      एक रखवाला, एक अद्भुत व्यक्ति
      और इस देश को बदलने वाला.

      मुझे गरियाया गया
      मेरी निंदा की गयी
      मुझे आरोपित किया गया
      मुझ पर हंसा गया
      मुझे चुप कराया गया
      और बहुत कुछ कहा गया
      ठीक उस दिन से
      मैंने जब विरोध किया
      जनलोकपाल का
      और तब से अब जब
      हुआ राजनैतिक चोला-बदल
      उस व्यक्ति का
      जिन्होंने पूरे देश को
      चकित कर रखा है.

      मैं डरता नहीं गरियाये जाने से
      मैं भला-बुरा को बुरा नहीं मानता
      विरोध किये जाने से पीछे नहीं हटता
      मैं आँखें दिखने पर खुश होता हूँ
      इसीलिए यह कोई समस्या नहीं है.

      जो बात मुझे बहुत परेशान करती
      कि क्या मैं सही रहा हूँ
      अथवा गलत हूँ मैं
      श्री केजरीवाल के विश्लेषण में
      एक व्यक्ति के रूप में
      युग-परिवर्तक की कथित भूमिका में
      उनकी सत्यता को लेकर
      और इस रूप में उनकी ईमानदारी पर.

      मैं नहीं कहता मुझमे है क्षमता
      और उतनी बुद्धि
      आंक सकूँ एक ऐतिहासिक व्यक्ति को
      पर यह भी कृपया जानें
      कि साधारण व्यक्ति भी
      महान व्यक्तियों के जज हो सकते.

      पुनः एक बार भी नहीं कहता
      मुझमे अंशमात्र भी महानता
      खुलेआम स्वीकारता हूँ मैं
      अपनी समस्त कमियों, बुराईयों को
      अपने झूठ को, अपने फरेब को
      कई-कई चीज़ों के प्रति
      लेकिन ये कमजोरियां भी
      रोक नहीं सकती हैं
      दुसरे के आकलन से.

      अब मूल प्रश्न पर आते हैं-
      मेरे कथित चंचल सोच पर
      एके के प्रति मेरी टिप्पणी पर
      मैं स्पष्ट करना चाहूँगा
      एक बार भी शंका नहीं
      उनकी अद्भुत क्षमता पर
      उनकी असीम सोच पर
      रिस्क लेने की ताकत पर
      उनके आत्मविश्वास पर
      कार्य के प्रति लगन पर
      उनके शानदार उत्साह पर
      और स्वयं को
      उपस्थित करने की मेधा पर.

      अब एक बात नहीं जानता
      मैं आज की तारीख तक
      वह है श्री के की आतंरिक सत्यता,
      अंतरतम की बात
      चेहरे के पीछे का सच
      वह असल आदमी
      और यही वह बिंदु
      जिसपर मैं, जो उन्हें दूर से ही जानता
      पा रहा हूँ अनवरत
      विरोधाभाषी वक्तव्य.

      एक तरह उनके समर्थक
      और अब उनके "शिष्य"
      उनके तमाम चाहने वाले
      और वे सभी लोग
      उन्निदें हैं जिनकी टिकी
      श्री अरविंद केजरीवाल पर
      जो उन्हें मानते
