chup-chap guzar jao

yahan horn bajaane ki ijazat nahin
aur main ne tamanna ka bharam khol diya hai ki samundar ki hawa
sine se takrae to parda na rahe
us ki mahak sar pe kafan bandh ke nikli hai
har ek raste har mod pe aawaz lagati hai
magar koi nahin rukta basant aai hai
sab bhag rahe hain koi aawaz nahin deta
koi mud ke nahin dekhta
petrol lahu aur hawa dast-o-gareban hain
jidhar dekho patangen hi patangen hain
zaminon pe utarne ke liye dolti par taulti
bal khati hui
subah ko katti hain magar sham ko sadkon pe utarti hain
to wo kaun hai jo
aankhon ke sae se gurezan hain
magar subh hi subh chupke se sau sidhiyan
chadh jata hai thakta hi nahin
aur nai aag dahakti hai
nae range hue kaghazon se hashr chamak uthta hai
sab aurten aur mard jawan ladkiyan aur ladke
nai texiyan aur motaren aur rikshe
unhen lutne nikle hain basant aai hai
aa jao yahan lut machi hai aao
dar-o-diwar ko hasrat ki nazar dekhna mat bhulna
ek dusre ko raundte
ek dusre ko khun mein bhige hue
sar pitte aur chikhte chillate sabhi bhag rahe hain
koi aawaz nahin deta
yahan maon aur bahnon se aur biwiyon se
aakhiri boson ki ijazat hai
magar horn bajaane ki ijazat nahin

zamin un ke liye phul khilati hai

jab aag jali naf ke niche to zamin phail gai
aag jali aur badan phail gae
aankhon ki aawargi be-rang hui
dhup hawa chandni
sab bastiyon mein khak udi
qafile hi qafile the
qafile jo dard ke watanon se chale
chalte gae ajnabi khushbu ki taraf
us ki taraf jis ke liye sari kitabon mein likha hai
wo kabhi hath nahin aati kabutaron se chatati hai
magar raat ke darwaze pe pahunche to sitare na mile
log abhi subh ki ummid mein shab katte hain
log dukhi log akele hain
unhen rasta do sine se chimta lo
har ek raste mein jalti hui aag bujha do ki badan
phailte jate hain zamin tang hui jati hai
jo aag bujhane ke liye aae the
sab khak hue laut nahin pae
hawa un ke liye dastaken deti hai
zamin un ke liye phul khilati hai

apne apne suraKHon ka Dar

nai sadkon ke naqshe kar-khane
unche unche pul mere mansube dekho aur kitabon mein padho
us ne kaha mere badan par hath bhi phero
magar surakh se ungli alag rakkho
magar us ke badan par har taraf surakh hi surakh hain
ungli alag rakkho!
to kya main ungliyon ko tod dun?
main ungliyon ko tod dun?
phir kaun tere husn ki tafsir likkhega? bata!
phir ye tasalsul raat din ka
chand suraj ka akele mausamon ka
masalon aur mushkilon ka
kaise tutega? bata!
us ne hamein ek dusre se chhup ke rahne ke liye
kapde diye aur khubsurat ghar diye
aur band kamron mein zaminon aasmanon ki sabhi sachchaiyan kahne aur un
par bahs karne aur mansube banane ki khuli aazadi di
yaro! chalo sadkon pe nange sair karne jaen
shayad rasm chal nikle
magar mere qabile ka koi bhi mard
kapde phad kar ghar ko jala ke
nangi nangi baaten kahne ke liye bahar na nikla
sab ko apne apne surakhon ka dar tha
