"My art is my search for the moments beyond the ones of self knowledge. It is the rhythmic fantasy; a restless streak which looks for its own fulfillment! A stillness that moves within! An intense search for my origin and ultimate identity". - Meena

Some Comments:

"कविता की भाषा में उनके संग्रह की असंलक्ष्य क्रम व्यंग्यध्वनि पढ़ने वाले को, अगर सचमुच वह सहृदय भावुक है, तो उसे एकाएक कौंधेगा कि यह कवयित्री व्यंजना के सहारे कितनी मार्मिक बात कह रही है और उसके भीतर की करुणा का आकाश कितनी दूर तक भासमान है। असल में आँखों से दीख पड़ने वाले आकाश से कहीं बड़ा और अपरिमेय है बंद आँखों का आकाश।”
-डॉ.कैलाश वाजपेयी

"Painting and poems go very well together. There is vitality in the forms, colours and the words chosen by Meena Chopra. Here is a charming feast of lyricism in paintings and poems".
- Dr. L.M. Singhvi

"उनकी कविताएं परिपक्व कविता का ठोस नमूना हैं जो जीवन में संबन्धों को नई व्याख्या देती हैं। विदेशों में रची जा रही कविताओं में मीना चोपड़ा की कविताओं का स्थान विशिष्ट माना जाएगा।"
- तेजेन्द्र शर्मा

"Your work expresses a dynamic of power, emotions, and fear. Only a great mind and a multi layered individual could construe the creations that you have set forth. I know I don't know you but through your work, I feel that I do. Your work portrays something more than the picture. It conjures up raw emotion"
-Vique Mora, USA

“A characteristic of her style is that physical sensations beautifully blend with abstract thought. Yearning for fulfillment is attended upon by consciousness of fragmentation.”
-Dr. Shalini Sikka, The Quest, (India) 1996

"She unveils shimmering facets of love, possession, mind and self with sensitivity. She is delicate but strong, gentle yet sharp, vulnerable yet proud. Self-actualization is more a matter of routine than effort; it is the moment beyond the ones of self knowledge that she wants to live up to, and become, not a mere rhapsody in search of life but a rhapsody in search of the deeper self. In this sense she is her own Sun…”
- Gautam Siddharth The Pioneer (Book reviews), (India) 28.9.1996

“Accompanying the cluster of these lovely oil pastels worked out like ’two inches of ivory’ are her versus. The words and the visuals support each other and the viewer is taken on to a journey to the end of the clouds. Look at her art or read her poetry there is a feeling of scaling heights, going to the mist of the mountains and scenting the fragrant pines.”
-Nirupama Dutt, Indian Express (India), August 22 1999

"The embryonic bond that she shares with nature forms the keynote of her work. Words freeze the impalpable fears finding their refuge in the womb of earth”.
- First City Delhi India 1999

"Meena Chopra’s poetry mirrors her acute sensibilities which, in turn, enmesh with her deft strokes on canvas.”
- S. Rajoo, The Times of India, Delhi, 23. 7. 1996

“مینا کے رنگ کینو س پر بکھر تے ہیں تو شا عری کر تے ہیں اور جب وہ شا عری کر تی ہے تو دھنک کے رنگ اس کی شا عری کے کینوس پر بکھر جا تے ہیں- مینا کی رو ح فطر ت کے حسن سے جڑی ہو ئ ہے اور جب اسکا حسا س دل اور سو چتی آ نکھیں ان منا ظر سے گزر تے ہیں تو عشق کے آ وے پر ا حسا س کی مور تیا ں ڈ ھا لتے ہا تھ جلتے ہو ئے چر ا غو ں جیسی نظمیں قطا ر در قطا ر سجا تے چلے جا تے ہیں"
-Nasim Syed

(Meena Chopra ek shaiira he nahen artist bhe hy iis leye shayad jb iis ky rang canvas per bikharte hen to rang shaiire kerte hen aur jab woh shaiire ker te hy to dhanak ke rang us ke shaiire ky canvas per bikhar jate heN. Meena ki rooh fitrat ky husn sy juree hoE hy aur jab eska hassas dil aur soochte ankheen iin manazir sy guzar te heN to ishq ke aaway per ehssas ke morteyaN dhaltee hath jalty hoE charagon jise nazmeen qatar der qatar sajate chalee jate heN....Nasim Syed)

कुछ निशान वक्त के

झील से झांकते आसमान की गहराई में
बादलों को चूमती पहाड़ों की परछाईयां
और घने पेड़ों के बीच फड़फड़ाते अतीत के चेहरे
झरनो के झरझराते मुख से झरते मधुर गीत संगीत
हवाओं पर बिखरी गेंदे के फूलों की सुनहरी खुशबू
दूर कहीं सजदों में झुकी घंटियों की गूंज
बांसुरी की धुन में लिपट कर चोटियों से
धीमे—धीमे उतरती मीठी धूप।

पानी में डुबकियां लगाती कुछ मचलती किरणे
और उन पर छ्पक—छपक चप्पूओं से सांसे लेती
ज़िन्दगी की चलती नौका
रात की झिलमिलाहटों में तैरती चुप्पियों की लहरें
किनारों से टकराकर लौटती जुगनुओं की वो चमक।

उम्मीदों की ठण्डी सड़क पर हवाओं से बातें करती
किसी राह्गीर के सपनों की तेज़ दौड़ती टापें
पगडंडियों को समेटे कदमो में अपने
पहूंची हैं वहां तक—जहां मंज़िलों के मुकाम
अक्सों में थम गये हैं
झील की गहराई में उतरकर
नींद को थपथपाते हुए
उठती सुबह की अंगड़ाई में रम गये हैं।

*यह कविता मेरे बचपन और
जन्मस्थल नैनीताल से प्रेरित है।
Audio of the above poem.
