After a gap of few months i am back with one of the great poem named Rashmirathi by Ramdhari Singh "Dinkar" Ji. Rashmirathi is quite a phenomenon in the world of Hindi poetry. Today we will talk about what is Rashmirathi is all about and post the first part of it....
रश्मिरथी का अर्थ होता है वह व्यक्ति, जिसका रथ रश्मि अर्थात पुण्य का हो । इस काव्य में रश्मिरथी नाम कर्ण का है क्योंकि उसका चरित्र अत्यन्त पुण्यमय और प्रोज्जवल है।
कर्ण महाभारत महाकाव्य का अत्यन्त यशस्वी पात्र है। उसका जन्म पाण्डवों की माता कुन्ती के गर्भ से उस समय हुआ जब कुन्ती अविवाहिता थीं, अतएव, कुन्ती ने लोकलज्जा से बचने के लिए, अपने नवजात शिशु को एक मंजूषा में बन्द करके नदी में बहा दिया। वह मंजूषा अधिरथ नाम के सुत को मिली। अधिरथ के कोई सन्तान नहीं थी। इसलिए, उन्होंने इस बच्चे को अपना पुत्र मान लिया। उनकी धर्मपत्नी का नाम राधा था। राधा से पालित होने के कारण ही कर्ण का एक नाम राधेय भी है।
रश्मिरथी - Part-1
'जय हो' जग में जले जहाँ भी, नमन पुनीत अनल को, जिस नर में भी बसे, हमारा नमन तेज को, बल को। किसी वृन्त पर खिले विपिन में, पर, नमस्य है फूल, सुधी खोजते नहीं, गुणों का आदि, शक्ति का मूल।
ऊँच-नीच का भेद न माने, वही श्रेष्ठ ज्ञानी है, दया-धर्म जिसमें हो, सबसे वही पूज्य प्राणी है। क्षत्रिय वही, भरी हो जिसमें निर्भयता की आग, सबसे श्रेष्ठ वही ब्राह्मण है, हो जिसमें तप-त्याग।
तेजस्वी सम्मान खोजते नहीं गोत्र बतला के, पाते हैं जग में प्रशस्ति अपना करतब दिखला के। हीन मूल की ओर देख जग गलत कहे या ठीक, वीर खींच कर ही रहते हैं इतिहासों में लीक।
जिसके पिता सूर्य थे, माता कुन्ती सती कुमारी, उसका पलना हुआ धार पर बहती हुई पिटारी। सूत-वंश में पला, चखा भी नहीं जननि का क्षीर, निकला कर्ण सभी युवकों में तब भी अद्भुत वीर।
तन से समरशूर, मन से भावुक, स्वभाव से दानी, जाति-गोत्र का नहीं, शील का, पौरुष का अभिमानी। ज्ञान-ध्यान, शस्त्रास्त्र, शास्त्र का कर सम्यक् अभ्यास, अपने गुण का किया कर्ण ने आप स्वयं सुविकास।
Bye for now and will be back with the next part of this great poem......

Mount Abu is the highest peak in the Aravalli Range of Rajasthan state in western India. It is located in Sirohi district. Mount Abu is 58 km from Palanpur (Gujarat). The mountain forms a distinct rocky plateau 22 km long by 9 km wide. The highest peak on the mountain is Guru Shikhar, at 1,722 metres (5,650 ft) above sea level. It is referred to as 'an oasis in the desert', as its heights are home to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and evergreen forests. The ancient name of Mount Abu is "Arbudaanchal"
The Arbuda Mountains (Mount Abu) region is said to be original abode of the famous Gurjaras.The association of the Gurjars with the mountain is noticed in many inscriptions and epigraphs including Tilakamanjari of Dhanpala. These Gurjars (Gujars or Gujjars) migrated from Arbuda mountain region and as early as sixth century A.D, they set up one or more principalities in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Almost all or a larger part of Rajasthan and Gujarat had been known as Gurjaratra (country ruled or protected by the Gurjars) or Gurjarabhumi(land of the Gurjars) for centuries prior to Mughal period.
The conquest of Mount Abu in 1311 by Rao Lumba of Deora-Chauhan dynasty brought to an end the reign of the Parmars and also marked the decline of Mount Abu. He shifted the capital city to Chandravati in the plains. After the destruction of Chandravati in 1405, Rao Shasmal made Sirohi his headquarters.Later it was leased by the British government from the then Maharaja of Sirohi for use as the headquarter of the resident to Rajputana (another name for Rajasthan).
In the Puranas, the region has been referred to as Arbudaranya, ("forest of Arbhuda") and 'Abu' is a dimunitive of this ancient name. It is believed that sage Vasishtha retired to the southern spur at Mount Abu following his differences with sage Vishvamitra. There is another mythology according to which a serpant named "Arbuda" who saved the life of Nandi - Lord Shiva's bull. The incident happened on the mountain which is currently known as mount Abu and so the mountain is named "Arbudaranya" after this incident which gradually became Abu.
