MORE BY Javed Akhtar

    ek patthar adhūrī mūrat

    chand tāñbe ke purāne sikke

    kaalī chāñdī ke ajab se zevar

    aur ka.ī kāñse ke TuuTe bartan

    ek sahrā mile

    zer-e-zamīñ

    log kahte haiñ ki sadiyoñ pahle

    aaj sahrā hai jahāñ

    vahīñ ik shahr huā kartā thā

    aur mujh ko ye ḳhayāl aatā hai

    kisī taqrīb

    kisī mahfil meñ

    sāmnā tujh se mirā aaj bhī ho jaatā hai

    ek lamhe ko

    bas ik pal ke liye

    jism aañch

    uchaTtī nazar

    surḳh bindiyā damak

    sarsarāhaT tirī malbūs

    bāloñ mahak

    be-ḳhayālī meñ kabhī

    lams nanhā phuul

    aur phir duur tak vahī sahrā

    vahī sahrā ki jahāñ

    kabhī ik shahr huā kartā thā

    ek patthar ki adhuri murat

    chand tanbe ke purane sikke

    kali chandi ke ajab se zewar

    aur kai kanse ke TuTe bartan

    ek sahra mile

    zer-e-zamin

    log kahte hain ki sadiyon pahle

    aaj sahra hai jahan

    wahin ek shahr hua karta tha

    aur mujh ko ye KHayal aata hai

    kisi taqrib

    kisi mahfil mein

    samna tujh se mera aaj bhi ho jata hai

    ek lamhe ko

    bas ek pal ke liye

    jism ki aanch

    uchaTti si nazar

    surKH bindiya ki damak

    sarsarahaT teri malbus ki

    baalon ki mahak

    be-KHayali mein kabhi

    lams ka nanha sa phul

    aur phir dur tak wahi sahra

    wahi sahra ki jahan

    kabhi ek shahr hua karta tha
