KHwabon KHayalon ki apsara

By

sukhan fareb koi mehrban ki tarah
dayar-e-husn hai duniya ki dastan ki tarah
ye muskuraati hui subd-o-sham-o-shab ki dulhan
dil-o-nazar ke liye sud-e-be-ziyan ki tarah
ye imtizaj-o-zar-e-shirq-o-gharb ka culture
nigah-e-husn liye ishq aashiqan ki tarah
harir-o-resham-o-diba mein rang-e-naz-o-ada
sukun-e-dil ke liye hain qarar-e-jaan ki tarah
ye rang rang ke unwan liye hasin chehre
sanam-kadon mein takhayyul ke hain butan ki tarah
sudaul jism ki sard-e-rawan sar-e-rahe
chale hain naz se huran-e-asman ki tarah
ye lahki mahki fazaen ye dil-ruba paikar
gulon ke rang mein dube hue jahan ki tarah
ye rabt-o-raqs-o-tarannum hawa ki lahron mein
qadam qadam pe ada-ha-e-mah-wishan ki tarah
ye jagmagati hui raat ye dahakte kanwal
nujum-o-mah-o-surayya-o-kahkashan ki tarah
ye mere khwabon-khayalon ki apsara jis mein
nigah-e-fikr-o-amal tir ki kaman ki tarah
magar watan bhi chhuta 'daur' dil ki dil mein rahi
ye bambai bhi na ho khwab-e-digaran ki tarah

magar wo sab kuchh bhula chuki hai
ki jis ke hamrah bita bachpan
ki jis ke hamrah thi jawani
umangen parwan chadh rahi thin
wo be-khabar roz-o-shab ki yaaden
kabhi kabhi chhoti moti baaton pe ruth jaana
na baat karna na sath rahna
jo main manaun to wo na mane
wo pyar kya tha khuda hi jaane
magar wo sab kuchh bhula chuki hai
ki jis ke hamrah bita bachpan
ki jis ke hamrah thi jawani
jo hosh aaya
to us ne ek sath marne-jine ki khain qasmen
magar wo sab kuchh bhula chuki hai
ki jis ki zulfon mein zindagi ki tamam qadren ulajh gai thin
ki jis ke mathe ki surkh bindi mera nasiba jaga rahi thi
ki jis ki nazron se main ne yaksaniyat ki mai pi
ki jis ke nazuk labon pe mere liye tabassum ki raushni thi
ki jis ki sanson mein mere sangit ki sada thi
ki jis ke sine ki dhadkanon mein mere liye ek zalzala tha
ki jis ki guftar-e-narm-o-nazuk ne zahr-e-shirin pilae mujh ko
ki jis ke zanu pe mera sar tha
magar wo sab kuchh bhula chuki hai
ki jis ke hamrah bita bachpan
ki jis ke hamrah thi jawani
ki jis ne ek rah par hi gyarah baras guzare the sath mere
wo rah jis par mohabbaten thin masarraten thin
musibaten thin
magar wo zalim
ki jis ne apni khushi ke aage
na khud ko samjha na mujh ko jaana
tilism-e-husn-o-yaqin tuta
to wo nahin thi
jo ham-safar thi
main apni manzil mein apne raste pe ab akela hi ja raha hun

bandar wala odh do-shaala
ganw mein aaya joda laya
bachche aae budhe aae
naujawan bhi pahlawan bhi
dug dug dug dug
dug dug dug dug
mast hue hain dekh rahe hain
bandar mama dal pajama
aai bandariya bandh lagutiya
bandar bhura dekh ke ghura
dug dug dug dug
dug dug dug dug
kahe madari karman mari
byah karegi sath rahegi
kuchh na boli munh na kholi
bandar aaya khub manaya
dug dug dug dug
dug dug dug dug
hami bhar li han hi kar li
joru laya nach dikhaya
baja ke tali pet hai khali
laga batane aur dikhane
dug dug dug dug
dug dug dug dug
sab ke hath se paise barse
utha madari ki tayyari
le kar jhula zor se bola
lo salam ji ram ram ji
dug dug dug dug
dug dug dug dug

chiDiya-ghar ki sair

By

hum sare school ke bachche
chidiya ghar ki sair ko pahunche
us ka har ek raaz naya hai
jangal ka andaz naya hai
newla chuha bandar dekha
lomad ghoda kutta dekha
jangal ke raja ko dekha
pinjre mein be-chaara baitha
sath hi ek talab bada tha
us mein magarmachh ek pada tha
chhote chhote sath the phirte
ek duje par aa aa girte
dur se ek chinghad si aai
hathi ne phir shakl dikhai
kangaroo bhi hum ne dekha
ud-bilao bhi achchha tha
dekha hum ne bhaalu aaya
ghum raha tha kala saya
kala tha ya gora gora
aql se lekin tha wo kora
richh ajab andaz se aae
aa kar achchhe nach dikhae
gende ki bhi baat ajab hai
dhaal ajab hai chaal ajab hai
aahu-e-tatar bhi dekha
barasingha sath wahin tha
bandar ke ausaf ko dekha
hum ne phir giraffe ko dekha
saras mor aur sanp jahan the
bakri aur khargosh wahan the
tota maina titar kawwa
aur thi ranga-rang ki chidiya
baz bhi dekha chil bhi dekhi
hum ne to ababil bhi dekhi
un se hum ne lutf uthaya
un ko dekh ke dil bahlaya
dekh ke chidiya-ghar jab aae
dil mein khushi ke phul khile the

aao aao phirki banaen
aur hawa mein khub nachaen
aao chalen aur kaghaz laen
nila pila kaghaz laen
lalu pila kaghaz lae
kalu nila kaghaz lae
lalu ja kar qainchi lae
kalu ja kar lei lae
lalu ne phir kaghaz kate
aade-tirchhe tedhe banke
phir in sab tukdon ko moda
aur sab ko lei se joda
lo ab wo tayyar hai phirki
pili pili nili nili
aisi phirki banai sab ne
phulwari mein phul hon jaise
lalu ne li pili phirki
kalu ne li nili phirki
ek bachchi thi pili phirki
wo aa kar raju ne le li
lalu bhi khush kalu bhi khush
nanhe munne se raju bhi khush

sui

chiz agarche hun main nannhi
lekin hun main kaam ki kaisi
aaqa ko bhi meri zarurat
naukar ko bhi meri hajat
koi jahan mein ghar nahin aisa
jis mein kaam nahin hai mera
haal sunati hun main apna
kan laga kar sara sunna
mitti mein se loha nikala
lohe ka faulad banaya
tar phir us faulad ka khincha
ho gaya wo tab dubla patla
kar diya us ko tukde tukde
ho gae jab wo tukde chhote
kal mein in tukdon ko dala
ban gai jab main sab ko nikala
ek taraf ab nok hai bachcho
ek taraf hai naka dekho
sui jahan mein ab kahlai
kaam zamane bhar ke aai
kaam har ek ke tum bhi aana
mano 'jauhar' ka farmana
