aziz man meri hansmukh meri bahadur man
tamam jauhar-e-fitrat jaga diye tu ne
mohabbat apne chaman se gulon se kharon se
mohabbaton ke khazane luta diye tu ne
bana bana ke mitae gae nuqush-e-amal
tere baghair mukammal na ho saki taswir
wo khwab jhansi ki rani ko jis ne chaunkaya
tera gihad-e-musalsal usi ki hai tabir
use hayat ka sola singar kahte hain
teri jabin pe hain kuchh silwaten bhi tika bhi
nazar mein jazb-e-yaqin dil mein soz-e-azadi
dahakta phul bhi hai tu mahakta shoala bhi
zara zamin ko mehwar pe ghum lene de
samaj tujh se tera soz-o-saz mangegi
jamal sikhega khud-e'timadiyan tujh se
hayat-e-nau tere dil ka gudaz mangegi

aaj socha to aansu bhar aae

aaj socha to aansu bhar aae
muddaten ho gain muskurae
har qadam par udhar mud ke dekha
un ki mahfil se hum uth to aae
rah gai zindagi dard ban ke
dard dil mein chhupae chhupae
dil ki nazuk ragen tutti hain
yaad itna bhi koi na aae

pyar ka jashn

By

pyar ka jashn nai tarah manana hoga
gham kisi dil mein sahi gham ko mitana hoga
kanpte honton pe paiman-e-wafa kya kahna
tujh ko lai hai kahan laghzish-e-pa kya kahna
mere ghar mein tere mukhde ki ziya kya kahna
aaj har ghar ka diya mujh ko jalana hoga
ruh chehron pe dhuan dekh ke sharmati hai
jhenpi jhenpi si mere lab pe hansi aati hai
tere milne ki khushi dard bani jati hai
hum ko hansna hai to auron ko hansana hoga
soi soi hui aaankhon mein chhalakte hue jam
khoi khoi hui nazron mein mohabbat ka payam
lab shirin pe meri tishna-labi ka inam
jaane inam milega ki churana hoga
meri gardan mein teri sandali bahon ka ye haar
abhi aansu the in aaankhon mein abhi itna khumar
main na kahta tha mere ghar mein bhi aaegi bahaar
shart itni thi ki pahle tujhe aana hoga

kisan

By

chir ke sal mein do bar zamin ka sina
dafn ho jata hun
gudgudate hain jo suraj ke sunahre nakhun
phir nikal aata hun
ab nikalta hun to itna ki batore jo koi daman mein
daman phat jae
ghar ke jis kone mein le ja ke koi rakh de mujhe
bhuk wahan se hat jae
phir mujhe piste hain, gundhte hain, senkte hain
gundhne senkne mein shakl badal jati hai
aur ho jati hai mushkil pahchan
phir bhi rahta hun kisan
wahi khasta, bad-haal
qarz ke panja-e-khunin mein nidhaal
is daranti ke tufail
kuchh hai mazi se ghanimat mera haal
haal se hoga hasin istiqbaal
uthte suraj ko zara dekho to
ho gaya sara ufuq laln-lal

intishaar

By

kabhi jumud kabhi sirf intishaar sa hai
jahan ko apni tabahi ka intizar sa hai
manu ki machhli na kashti-e-nuh aur ye faza
ki qatre qatre mein tufan be-qarar sa hai
main kis ko apne gareban ka chaak dikhlaun
ki aaj daman-e-yazdan bhi tar tar sa hai
saja-sanwar ke jis ko hazar naz kiye
usi pe khaliq-e-kaunain sharmsar sa hai
tamam jism hai bedar fikr khwabida
dimagh pichhle zamane ki yaadgar sa hai
sab apne panw pe rakh rakh ke panw chalte hain
khud apne dosh pe har aadmi sawar sa hai
jise pukariye milta hai ek khandar se jawab
jise bhi dekhiye mazi ka ishtihaar sa hai
hui to kaise bayaban mein aa ke sham hui
ki jo mazar yahan hai mera mazar sa hai
koi to sud chukae koi to zimma le
us inqalab ka jo aaj tak udhaar sa hai
