    shādiyāñ hotī thiiñ jab pahle kisī dehāt meñ

    chand hāthī bhī mañgā.e jaate the bārāt meñ

    taaki kuchh sārātiyoñ par ro.ab samdhī paḌe

    aur us ke naam atrāf meñ jhanDā gaḌe

    hāthiyoñ ko dekh kar atrāf meñ hotī thī dhuum

    gher letā thā unheñ ahl-e-tamāshā hujūm

    un ḳhūrish par magar hotī thī ḳharch itnī raqam

    sāhab-ḳhāna bichāre nikal jaatā thā dam

    gāḌiyoñ bargad ke patte ek man puḳhta anaaj

    ek hāthī ko milā kartā thā rozāna ḳhirāj

    jab adam-ābād jānib zamīñ-dārī ga.ī

    rafta rafta hāthiyoñ garm-bāzārī ga.ī

    aur ab un ke evaz har gaañv har dehāt meñ

    nā-ḳhudāyān-e-siysāsat jaate haiñ bārāt meñ

    āj-kal shobhā baḌhāne ke liye bārāt

    har lagan meñ maañg hotī hai inhīñ hazrāt

    un aamad se bhī mach jaatī hai chāroñ samt dhuum

    gher letā hai unheñ bhī gaañv vāloñ hujūm

    mezbāñ ke ghar raunaq shān-o-shaukat ro.ab-dāb

    daf.atan baḌhte haiñ be-pāyāñ o be-hadd-o-hisāb

    ek hāthī par jo pahle ḳharch hotī thī raqam

    ek netā par vahī hotī hai sarf ab besh-o-kam

    farq sirf ye hai ki vo khātā thā gallā ye pulāv

    us hissa ek man thā in hissa tiin paav

    us ke aage Tokrā thā in ke aage ḳhās-dān

    vo chabā jaatā thā patte ye chabā jaate the paan

    pāñch meñ miltā thā pahle ek man galle Dher

    saiñkaḌoñ ab chapat hai murġh-o-māhī-o-baTer

    māñgte haiñ da.avat-e-shādī meñ sab har baar murġh

    ab hisāb is lagā lo ek netā chaar murġh

    is tarāzū meñ barābar haiñ vo netā huuñ ki fiil

    khāte haiñ jantā hissa bhī ye jantā ke vakīl

    ḳhvāh netā ho ki hāthī naam bārātī hai

    al-ġharaz dīvāliya har hālat meñ sārātī hai

    shadiyan hoti thin jab pahle kisi dehat mein

    chand hathi bhi mangae jate the baraat mein

    taki kuchh saraatiyon par roab samdhi ka paDe

    aur us ke nam ka atraf mein jhanDa gaDe

    hathiyon ko dekh kar atraf mein hoti thi dhum

    gher leta tha unhen ahl-e-tamasha ka hujum

    un ki KHurish par magar hoti thi KHarch itni raqam

    sahab-KHana bichaare ka nikal jata tha dam

    gaDiyon bargad ke patte ek man puKHta anaj

    ek hathi ko mila karta tha rozana KHiraj

    jab adam-abaad ki jaanib zamin-dari gai

    rafta rafta hathiyon ki garm-bazari gai

    aur ab un ke ewaz har ganw har dehat mein

    na-KHudayan-e-siysasat jate hain baraat mein

    aaj-kal shobha baDhane ke liye baraat ki

    har lagan mein mang hoti hai inhin hazraat ki

    un ki aamad se bhi mach jati hai chaaron samt dhum

    gher leta hai unhen bhi ganw walon ka hujum

    mezban ke ghar ki raunaq shan-o-shaukat roab-dab

    dafatan baDhte hain be-payan o be-hadd-o-hisab

    ek hathi par jo pahle KHarch hoti thi raqam

    ek neta par wahi hoti hai sarf ab besh-o-kam

    farq sirf ye hai ki wo khata tha galla ye pulaw

    us ka hissa ek man tha in ka hissa tin paw

    us ke aage Tokra tha in ke aage KHas-dan

    wo chaba jata tha patte ye chaba jate the pan

    panch mein milta tha pahle ek man galle ka Dher

    sainkaDon ki ab chapat hai murgh-o-mahi-o-baTer

    mangte hain dawat-e-shadi mein sab har bar murgh

    ab hisab is ka laga lo ek neta chaar murgh

    is taraazu mein barabar hain wo neta hun ki fil

    khate hain janta ka hissa bhi ye janta ke wakil

    KHwah neta ho ki hathi nam baraati ka hai

    al-gharaz diwaliya har haalat mein saraati ka hai
