toffee-nama

aksar hamare khwab mein aati hain toffiyan
khul jae phir jo aankh satati hain toffiyan
taqrib ghar mein ho koi school ka ho jashn
mauqa mile to rang jamati hain toffiyan
khaen maze maze se bade bhai jaan bhi
baji bhi khub shauq se khati hain toffiyan
abba bhi le ke aate hain chizen nai nai
ammi bhi market se to lati hain toffiyan
billi ko khwab kya nazar aata hai kya kahin
hum ko to khwab mein nazar aati hain toffiyan
madam hamari achchhi hain school ki sabhi
achchhi hain sab se wo jo khilati hain toffiyan
dekhen jo toffiyan to wo hanste zarur hain
bachchon ko rote rote hansati hain toffiyan
'adil' hain hum bhi zaiqe se un ke ba-khabar
pani hamare munh mein bhi lati hain toffiyan

rikshe wala

dekho gharib kitni zahmat utha raha hai
galiyon mein bhid wali rickshaw chala raha hai
mahrum hai agarche duniya ki neamaton se
har bojh zindagi ka hans kar utha raha hai
barsat mein bhi dekho phirta hua sadak par
rickshaw bhi bhigta hai khud bhi naha raha hai
garmi ki dhup mein bhi rukta nahin hai ghar mein
pur-pech raston ke phere laga raha hai
sardi se kanpta hai kapde phate hue hain
thandi hawa se khud ko kaise bacha raha hai
masti mein daudta hai rickshaw liye sadak par
naghma koi surila ab gunguna raha hai
rikshe ke pedalon par rakhe hain panw donon
aankhen hain raste par ghanti baja raha hai
man bap muntazir hain ghar par sabhi ke 'adil'
bachchon ko ab wo lene school ja raha hai

KHuda jaanta hai

khuda ki ye baaten khuda jaanta hai
nikalta hai mashriq se kis tarah suraj
falak par chamakta hai ye chand kyunkar
kahan se samundar mein aate hain tufan
ujala hai kaisa ye shams-o-qamar par
khuda ki ye baaten khuda jaanta hai
bahaaron ka gul ko pata kis tarah hai
ada ghunchon ko ye chatakne ki kyon di
kahan se hai aaya khizan ka ye mausam
ghata ko ye khubi barasne ki kyon di
khuda ki ye baaten khuda jaanta hai

holi

holi jab bhi aae
pyar ki khushiyan lae
rangon ke khelon mein
masti si chha jae
khush hain dadi nani
bachchon ki nadani
pichkari mein bhar kar
phenk rahe hain pani
rang rangili holi
chhail chhabeli holi
bachche hun ya budhe
sab ki saheli holi
pani ke ghubare
rangon ke nazare
bura na mano bhayya
lagte hain kya pyare

bhul na jaana

wada kiya tha aap ne mujh se
yak-shamba ko khir pakegi
aaj hai shamba yaad dila dun
zehn mein taza baat rahegi
pyari ammi bhul na jaana
wada kiya tha aap ne mujh se
yak-shamba ko paise milenge
aaj hai shamba yaad dila dun
warna paise kaise milenge
pyare abbu bhul na jaana
wada kiya tha aap ne mujh se
yak-shamba ko sair karenge
aaj hai shamba yaad dila dun
warna kaise yaad rakhenge
pyare bhayya bhul na jaana
wada kiya tha aap ne mujh se
yak-shamba ko kaam na dengi
aaj hai shamba yaad dila dun
pyari baji khub hansnegi
pyari baji bhul na jaana

aksar main sochta hun

kaise banai tu ne ye kaenat pyari
hairan ho rahi hai aql-o-khirad hamari
kaliyan mahak rahi hain eajaz hai ye tera
khushbu kahan se aai ek raaz hai ye tera
bulbul ke chahchahon ne hairan kar diya hai
insan ke qahqahon ne hairan kar diya hai
shashdar hun dekh ke main udte hain kaise panchhi
dariya mein dekhta hun jate hain kaise manjhi
kis tarah be-sutun ye tu ne falak banaya
aanchal ko tu ne us ke baron se jagmagaya
kis tarah ki hain paida barsat ki ghataen
kis tarah chal rahi hain pur-kaif ye hawaen
dariya pahad jangal kis tarah ban gae hain
ye baat aql wale har waqt sochte hain
kis tarah tu ne maula insan ko banaya
aksar main sochta hun kaisa hai tu khudaya
