उलझन

सब उठाये फिरते अपने अपने दुखों का सलीब,
कौन साथ दे किसका, और कौन मरहम लगाए यहाँ।

आंसुओं को अपनी आँखों में  थामे रखना ,
कौन समझेगा तेरे आंसुओं का मोल यहाँ। 


जो साथ आये रोने वो खुद भी कम ग़मगीन न थे
जो भी रोया साथ आपबीती पर रोया  यहाँ
दुखड़े सुना सुना कर सबको परेशां न कर
दर्द खुद ही सहना होगा  कोई बाँट नहीं सकता  यहाँ

करोड़ों हड़प के भी मिटती नहीं है भूख उनकी
कौन तय करेगा भिखारी है कौन यहाँ
उठाते सूरज को तो सभी सलाम करते हैं 
डूबते को माथा टेके है ये कौन नादान यहाँ

– Oleg Oprisco

Wise man said
forget the past
learn to forgive and forget
hate the crime and not the criminal
time will heal all the wounds
but
what if the wounds from the past still bleed
what if the scars of injustice
are etched
permanently on soul
what when they don’t let you
live in peace
what when to even the score
they vehemently plead

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #114 — Reformation

Posted on

https://reinventionsreena.wordpress.com/2019/11/21/reenas-exploration-challenge-114

  1. How much poison are you willing to eat for the success of the free market and global trade? Please name your preferred poisons.
  2. For the sake of goodness, how much evil are you willing to do? Fill in the following blanks with the names of your favorite evils and acts of hatred.
  3. What sacrifices are you prepared to make for culture and civilization? Please list the monuments, shrines, and works of art you would most willingly destroy.
  4. In the name of patriotism and the flag, how much of our beloved land are you willing to desecrate? List in the following spaces the mountains, rivers, towns, farms you could most readily do without.
  5. State briefly the ideas, ideals, or hopes, the energy sources, the kinds of security, for which you would kill a child. Name, please, the children whom you would be willing to kill.

 

Statistics that more than 2000 of rape cases are committed by under 18 is much disturbing. Then consider other crimes also. Are they all psychopaths?

They are sent to the reformatory house.  After release their whereabouts are kept a secret, the name changed so they can lead a normal life.

There is no guaranty that they will come out reformed.

Problem is if court punishes them like an adult, after some time they may get accustomed to that life and may come out as a more seasoned criminal.

Children need to channelize their energy in the right direction from childhood.

Our hopes entirely depend on parents, schools, neighborhoods, and volunteers willing to look into the root cause

and take corrective action. Free psychoanalysis and consultation and proper guidance should be available on all levels.

Eliminating crime and reforming the criminal is what I’ll be longing for.
