काला घोड़ा - Dedicated to All Barodians















उन्होंने कहा - कि हर चौक पर
नाम रखे इन्सां - भगवान के
बेचारे जानवरों के लिए कुछ नहीं छोडा ?
हमने कहा - आइये बडोदा में
दिखलायें आपको काला घोड़ा

यह ऐसा है घोड़ा जिस पर बैठे हैं
महाराजा सयाजीराव ताने सीना चौडा
पर ये भी है विडम्बना,
कि इसने उन्ही के नाम को पीछे है छोडा

इसने सीधे रस्ते को है दो दिशाओं में मोडा
और इसके आसपास अकस्मातों ने
न जाने कितने निर्दोषों का सिर है फोड़ा

भई ! ये है बड़ा निगौडा
इसे कहते हैं सभी काला घोड़ा


Few Words on Kala Ghoda, Vadodara

Kala Ghoda is situated near the front gate of Sayaji Baug in Vadodara, Gujarat. It is a vigorous bronze statue of Maharaja Sayajirao III seated on the horse back. This statue was raised by the admirers of the king in commemoration of his silver jubilee in 1907. The English artist F Derewett Wood was the architecture who constructed the Kala Ghoda.

Few Words on Poetry:
This was my first poetry written with fun which later was identified as irony (vyang). This poetry made me win the first prize at university level (M.S University, Vadodara) under the category of "My Own Poetry", where participant recite self written poetry. .
