A Poem By Kaizad B Irani on Mahatma Gandhi's 150th Birth Anniversary

चलो बापू की राह पर सब के लिए 'आदर्श' है बापू का आचरण, आज भी उपयुक्त है उन सब का पालन. सादगी भरा जीवन है सर्वोत्तम,  मन की शांति मिले उससे हरदम.  हिंसा से तो और भी बिगड़ जाए हालात,  'अहिंसा' से सुलझ जाए हर बिगड़ी बात.  'सत्य' की राह पर चाहे थोड़ी मुश्किल आए,  पर अंत में जीत हमेशा वही हमें दिलाए.  चाहे कितनी भी करे कोई दादागिरी,  उसे शर्मिंदा करे सभ्यतापूर्ण 'गांधीगिरी' .  'स्वच्छता' का पालन तो है ईश्वर-भक्ति की राह,  स्वस्थ और निरोगी जीवन का हो उससे निर्वाह.  जो बदलाव दूसरों में लाने की हो अपनी आस,  पहले 'स्वयं' उनका पालन करने का करें प्रयास.  बापू की राह पर चलने का मिलकर करें संकल्प,  सफलता और खुशहाली का है यही उत्तम विकल्प.  आपका आभारी, कैज़ाद बी. ईरानी Source - Poet Kaizad B Irani
