…aur theek taraazu ke kaante par ardh satya


One of my friends was talking about Govind Nihalani‘s Ardh Satya the other day. 🙂

Couldn’t help but remember the poem (by the same name) in the film. It was written by Dilip Chitre.

chakravyuh mein ghusne se pehle
main kaun tha aur kaisa tha
yeh mujhe yaad hi na rahega chakravyuh mein ghusne ke baad
mere aur chakravyuh ke beech
sirf ek jaanleva nikat-ta thi
iska mujhe pata hi na chalega chakravyuh se nikalne ke baad
main mukt ho jaoon bhale hi
phir bhi chakravyuh ki rachna mein
fark hi na padega
marun ya maarun
maara jaoon ya jaan se maardun
iska faisla kabhi na ho paayega soya hua aadmi jab
neend se uthkar

chalna shuru karta hai
tab sapno ka sansar use
dobara
dikh hi na paayega us roshni mein jo nirnay ki roshni hai
sab kuchh samaan hoga kya? ek palde mein napunsakta
ek palde mein paurush
aur theek taraazu ke kaante par
ardh satya

    Loved that movie, but somehow forgot all about that whole poem!
    Good stuff.

  2. Three drinks ahead...as always!

    I know. The poem’s great! And, isn’t Om Puri just so good in the movie?

    I found that movie stunning. It was about a year back that i saw that movie, and i still quote from it. Did not remember the entire poem, but the last para I sure did.

    Is stunning, if you come to think of it.
