bachpan ka wo zamana

aata hai yaad mujh ko bachpan ka wo zamana
rahta tha sath mere khushiyon ka jab khazana
har roz ghar mein milte umda laziz khane
be-mehnat-o-mashaqqat hasil tha aab-o-dana
bachchon ke sath rahna khushiyon ke git gana
dil mein na thi kudurat tha sab se dostana
mehndi ke patte lana aur pis kar lagana
phir surkh hath apne har ek ko dikhana
aawaz dugdugi ki jun hi sunai deti
us ki taraf lapakna bachchon ka walihana
har sal pyare abbu late the ek bakra
chaara use khilana maidan mein ghumana
wo dur ja chuka hai aata nahin palat kar
bachpan ka wo zamana lagta hai ek fasana
dadi ko main ne ek din ye mashwara diya tha
chehre ki jhurriyon ko aasan hai mitana
chehre pe aap ke hain jo be-shumar shiknen
aaya meri samajh mein un se najat pana
kapde ki sari shiknen mitti hain istiri se
aasan sa amal hai ye istiri chalana
ek garm istiri ko chehre pe aap pheren
umda hai mera nuskha hai shart aazmana
ek roz walida se ja kar kaha kitchen mein
ab chhodiyega ammi ye rotiyan pakana
ek ped rotiyon ka dalan mein lagaen
us ped ko kahenge roti ka karkhana
shakhon se taza taza phir rotiyan milengi
todenge rotiyan hum khaenge ghar mein khana
kaisi ajib baaten aati thin mere lab par
aaj un ko kah raha hun baaten hain ahmaqana
wo pyari pyari baaten ab yaad aa rahi hain
bachpan ka wo zamana kya khwab tha suhana
