jhaansee kee raanee – a poem by Subhadra Kumari Chauhan

sinhaasan hil uthe raajavanshon ne bhrkutee taanee thee,
boodhe bhaarat mein bhee aaee phir se nayee javaanee thee,
gumee huee aazaadee kee keemat sabane pahachaanee thee,
door phirangee ko karane kee sabane man mein thaanee thee.

chamak uthee san sattaavan mein, vah talavaar puraanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

kaanapoor ke naana kee, munhabolee bahan chhabeelee thee,
lakshmeebaee naam, pita kee vah santaan akelee thee,
naana ke sang padhatee thee vah, naana ke sang khelee thee,
barachhee, dhaal, krpaan, kataaree usakee yahee sahelee thee.

veer shivaajee kee gaathaayen usako yaad zabaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

lakshmee thee ya durga thee vah svayan veerata kee avataar,
dekh maraathe pulakit hote usakee talavaaron ke vaar,
nakalee yuddh-vyooh kee rachana aur khelana khoob shikaar,
sainy gherana, durg todana ye the usake priy khilavaad.

mahaaraashtr-kul-devee usakee bhee aaraadhy bhavaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

huee veerata kee vaibhav ke saath sagaee jhaansee mein,
byaah hua raanee ban aaee lakshmeebaee jhaansee mein,
raajamahal mein bajee badhaee khushiyaan chhaee jhaansee mein,
sughat bundelon kee virudaavali-see vah aayee thee jhaansee mein.

chitra ne arjun ko paaya, shiv ko milee bhavaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

udit hua saubhaagy, mudit mahalon mein ujiyaalee chhaee,
kintu kaalagati chupake-chupake kaalee ghata gher laee,
teer chalaane vaale kar mein use choodiyaan kab bhaee,
raanee vidhava huee, haay! vidhi ko bhee nahin daya aaee.

nisantaan mare raajaajee raanee shok-samaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

bujha deep jhaansee ka tab dalahauzee man mein harashaaya,
raajy hadap karane ka usane yah achchha avasar paaya,
fauran phaujen bhej durg par apana jhanda phaharaaya,
laavaaris ka vaaris banakar british raajy jhaansee aaya.

ashrupoorn raanee ne dekha jhaansee huee biraanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

anunay vinay nahin sunatee hai, vikat shaasakon kee maaya,
vyaapaaree ban daya chaahata tha jab yah bhaarat aaya,
dalahauzee ne pair pasaare, ab to palat gaee kaaya,
raajaon navvaabon ko bhee usane pairon thukaraaya.

raanee daasee banee, banee yah daasee ab maharaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

chhinee raajadhaanee dillee kee, lakhanoo chheena baaton-baat,
kaid peshava tha bithoor mein, hua naagapur ka bhee ghaat,
udaipur, tanjaur, sataara,karnaatak kee kaun bisaat?
jab ki sindh, panjaab brahm par abhee hua tha vajr-nipaat.

bangaale, madraas aadi kee bhee to vahee kahaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

raanee royeen ranivaason mein, begam gam se theen bezaar,
unake gahane kapade bikate the kalakatte ke baazaar,
sare aam neelaam chhaapate the angrezon ke akhabaar,
naagapur ke zevar le lo lakhanoo ke lo naulakh haar.

yon parade kee izzat paradeshee ke haath bikaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

kutiyon mein bhee visham vedana, mahalon mein aahat apamaan,
veer sainikon ke man mein tha apane purakhon ka abhimaan,
naana dhundhoopant peshava juta raha tha sab saamaan,
bahin chhabeelee ne ran-chandee ka kar diya prakat aahavaan.

hua yagy praarambh unhen to soee jyoti jagaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

mahalon ne dee aag, jhompadee ne jvaala sulagaee thee,
yah svatantrata kee chinagaaree antaratam se aaee thee,
jhaansee chetee, dillee chetee, lakhanoo lapaten chhaee thee,
merath, kaanapur,patana ne bhaaree dhoom machaee thee,

jabalapur, kolhaapur mein bhee kuchh halachal ukasaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

is svatantrata mahaayagy mein kaee veeravar aae kaam,
naana dhundhoopant, taantiya, chatur azeemulla saranaam,
ahamadashaah maulavee, thaakur kunvarasinh sainik abhiraam,
bhaarat ke itihaas gagan mein amar rahenge jinake naam.

lekin aaj jurm kahalaatee unakee jo kurabaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

inakee gaatha chhod, chale ham jhaansee ke maidaanon mein,
jahaan khadee hai lakshmeebaee mard banee mardaanon mein,
lephtinent vaakar aa pahuncha, aage badha javaanon mein,
raanee ne talavaar kheench lee, huya dvand asamaanon mein.

zakhmee hokar vaakar bhaaga, use ajab hairaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

raanee badhee kaalapee aaee, kar sau meel nirantar paar,
ghoda thak kar gira bhoomi par gaya svarg tatkaal sidhaar,
yamuna tat par angrezon ne phir khaee raanee se haar,
vijayee raanee aage chal dee, kiya gvaaliyar par adhikaar.

angrezon ke mitr sindhiya ne chhodee raajadhaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

vijay milee, par angrezon kee phir sena ghir aaee thee,
abake janaral smith sammukh tha, usane muhan kee khaee thee,
kaana aur mandara sakhiyaan raanee ke sang aaee thee,
yuddh shretr mein un donon ne bhaaree maar machaee thee.

par peechhe hyooroz aa gaya, haay! ghiree ab raanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

to bhee raanee maar kaat kar chalatee banee sainy ke paar,
kintu saamane naala aaya, tha vah sankat visham apaar,
ghoda ada, naya ghoda tha, itane mein aa gaye savaar,
raanee ek, shatru bahutere, hone lage vaar-par-vaar.

ghaayal hokar giree sinhanee use veer gati paanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

raanee gaee sidhaar chita ab usakee divy savaaree thee,
mila tej se tej, tej kee vah sachchee adhikaaree thee,
abhee umr kul teis kee thee, manuj nahin avataaree thee,
hamako jeevit karane aayee ban svatantrata-naaree thee,

dikha gaee path, sikha gaee hamako jo seekh sikhaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.

jao raanee yaad rakhenge ye krtagy bhaaratavaasee,
yah tera balidaan jagaavega svatantrata avinaasee,
hove chup itihaas, lage sachchaee ko chaahe phaansee,
ho madamaatee vijay, mita de golon se chaahe jhaansee.

tera smaarak too hee hogee, too khud amit nishaanee thee,
bundele harabolon ke munh hamane sunee kahaanee thee,
khoob ladee mardaanee vah to jhaansee vaalee raanee thee.
