निर्झारिणीको जीवन्त सङ्गीत पनि हो मेरो कविता

उतौला देखिने,

सागरका छालहरुका,

उत्तेजना मात्र होइन,
चंचलता पछिको,
क्रन्दन पनि हो-मेरो कविता।

सौन्दर्यको चुचुरा,
उत्तेजनाको आयतनमा,
आनन्द-चेतनाको,
उपमा दिने,
कामवेद्को प्रणय ऋचा मात्र होइन,
जीवन मरु भूमिमा,
प्राणीको पनि पानीसंग,
अनि पानीको प्राणीसंगको
स्नेह र आत्मियतापनि हो मेरो कविता।

यूद्ध सत्य युगको,
कलि युगमा,
देव-दानवको,
सागर-मन्थनबाट निस्किएको,
अमृत मात्र होइन,
संसार संहार गर्नसक्ने,
विषको थुप्रो पनि हो - मेरो कविता। 

आकाश छुने बुट्टेदार,
अट्टालिका इमारतहरुका,
सौन्दर्य मात्र होइन,
निर्माण गर्ने त्यी काला हातहरुका,
रगत र पसीना पनि हो - मेरो कविता। 

जंगली साम्राज्यको शिखरमा,
भैरवक्रीडामा ब्यस्त,
यसको ज्वलन्त निरुपण अनि 
क्रिडामा पराजित ,
यसकोअनुचित भूलको,
समुचित दोषको,
आभास पनि हो - मेरो कविता। 

सुनौला धानका बाला,
लह लह लहरिरहेका,
खेतको मलिलोपन मात्र होइन ,
त्यी बाँझा धरतीका ,
दुख-समवेदना पनि हो - मेरो कविता,

त्यसो त !
ज्योत्सनाको कुतकुत्याईले,
लहर-लहर उल्लासित हुँदै झर्ने,
निर्झरिणीको जीवन्त सङ्गीत पनि हो- मेरो कविता।।

मुल्यवान तश्वीर

     गरीब प्रतिका सहानुभूति, 
भण्डारका तिम्रा ती सम्पति, 
हृदय भरिका व्यङ्ग रस्, 
तिम्रा ति उतारिएका तश्वीर
नांगा भोका अनि मुल्यहीन सम्प्रतिको........ 
तिम्रा कृति यो तश्वीर .... 
अब मुल्यवान भो हजारों रुपियाँमा बिक्रि हुने भो ....... 



तस्विरका विषय 
वस्तु हिज जस्तै आज पनि यस्तैनै रहने भो........ 
कति दृष्टिमधुर तिमीले उतारेको यो तश्वीर, 
मानव आकृति जस्तै
हाड र छालाको विषम प्रदर्शन, 
आफ्नो सन्तानको अवस्था त बेश्सै छ, 
पोष्टिक आहारले भरपुर छ खान्की, 
परिष्कार एवं समय सापेक्ष छ पोशाक...... 
सबै...सबै.. त्यो तश्वीरको भन्दा बड़िया छ. 
तश्वीरको मोडेलको त के मूल्य छ 


न दिनहुँ खान पाईराखेको छ न कपडानै छ ढङ्गको,

यो त तिम्रो कला हो 

कस्तो दामी पोज पारेर उतारेको तश्वीर... 
अब मुल्यवानभो हजारो रुपियाँमा बिक्रि हुने भो......

मन मेरो फेरी

बितेका दिनहरु फेरि फर्कि आउने भए,
वालापनलाई यो मनले रोज्दथ्यो,
दुखिरहेको यो मन यस्तो पीडाले
माया गरेर कसैले कसरी रुवाउने थियो ।

पाईहाल्थ्यो माया चाहना मात्रगर्दा,
के को डर रहन्थ्यो कसैको ठुसकाईमा,
तब हरेकले मनलाईनै मुसार्थ्यो,
मायामा कसैले कसरी झुकाउने थियो।

जब आरामको निन्द्रा सुतेको हुन्थे,
तब फेरी सपनामा डराउदथे,         
आमाको पछ्यौरीले फेरी सुताउथ्यो
मायामा कसैले कसरी झुकाउने थियो।

यदि फेरी म बच्चा हुन्थे
मायाको विषय नबुझ्ने हुनेथे
भावनालाई कसैले कसरी चोट पुर्याउथियो
मायामा कसैले कसरी झुकाउने थियो।

PADMA BHUSHAN SONAM GYATSO

.
 
Sonam Gyatso  was born in village Kewzing (correct spelling is khto-shing- meaning wheat-field). South Sikkim. In the lap of mighty Kanchenjunga (28,208 ft) in 1923. He started his career as a school teacher and later joined the Indian Air Force. He was recruited as Head Constable in 1949 in the Frontier Constabulary Force when his career took a turn. After completing his first Basic Course at the Himalayan Mountaineering Instituer. Darjeeling in 1954, he was selected for the expedition to Nanda Devi (25.645 ft) in 1957. Although, this expedition was unsuccessful because of worst blizzards, not many mountaineers in the world ever reach even 25,000 feet and the fact that in his very first attempt he reached that height
speaks highly of his skill and stamina. Thereafter he blazed a trial of glory in his great mountaineering career for the next seven years.
 
Then came the historic climb of Cho Oyu (26,897 ft) in 1958. Pandit Nehru personally congratulated him and gave him a handsome reward. It was a first time an Indian expedition had reached so high.
 
    The first attempt o    The first attempt on Everest was made in 1960 which was unsuccessful because of bad weather. However, he could reach upto just 700 feet below the summit. In recognition of this feat, the I.M.F. awarded him its gold medal. He was the first recipient of this honour. The President awarded him Padma Shre. Sikkim made him jigmi Singhi. He was promoted in his service also.
 
After the unsuccessful first Indian attempt on Mount Everest, the Indian Mountaineering Foundation decided to sponsor three expedition during 1961 to give further experience to those climbers who would be selected for the bigger expedition The peaks selected were Nanda Devi, Nilakantha and Annapurna III. Sonam Gyatso was selected for Annapurna III (24,858 ft) which was said to be remained unclimbed and unexplored so far. Inspite of bad weather and heavy snowfall Sonam Gyatso alongwith his two rope partners Kohli and Girmi went up slowly and painfully inch by inch forward. It was a struggle of human endurance and will power against the elements at their worst. They could finally step on the virgin peak of Annapurna III on May 6th at 4.15 p.m. In congratulating the team, the President of India Said- "May the spirit of adventure and purposeful exploration ever continue to inspire India's youth and the Services, whom you represent, to still greater achievements."
 
In 1961, three months after the return from the successful ascent of Annapurna III, while other team members were resting, Sonam volunteered to lead another expedition for training and acclimatization of the members of his  organization to the southern approaches of Kangchenja West (22.603 ft) in North Sikkim. Under his leadership,, this expedition which was quite difficult also became successful. This peak had not been climbed till then As a mark of respect on the 28th October 1961 all the members were received by the Chogyal of Sikkim.
 
When in 1962, he again failed in his second attempt on Everest, when just 400 feet short of the summit, everyone lost their hopes. Probably he would not be able to make it again. But Sonam was not despondent. he assured that he would succeed at the attempt. It was only the weather that had beaten him, not the mountain. His faith was irrepressible. He had faith in himself. He had faith in his family. He had faith in his organization, in his government and in his country. He had complete faith in God. Nothing, no calamity ever of the greatest magnitude, could shake that faith. There was a conviction in him that Everest would ultimately be reconciled to him.
 
And he was right. He climbed it in 1965 when he was 42, the oldest man ever to have set foot on the top of Everest and stayed their for fifty minutes without oxygen.  
For his outstanding achievements the President of India gave him Padma Bhushan. Sikkim bestownedFor his outstanding achievements the President of India gave him Padma Bhushan. Sikkim bestowed her highest award Pema Dorje on him. He along with other members of the team got the coveted Arjuna Award.
    Sonam Gyatso died on 8th April 1968 in Delhi Hospital due to snow frost bite.  
As deference to his contribution the Sikkim Democratic Front Government under the Leadreship of Dr. Pawan Chamling renamed the old Tibet Road in Gangtok after him as Sonam 'Gyatso Marg'.
