    ajiib log haiñ

    sahrā meñ shahr meñ ghar meñ

    sulagtī ret pe ThiThure hue samundar meñ

    ḳhalā meñ chāñd banjar zamīñ ke siine par

    jo sub.h o shaam be-rabt raah meñ chup-chāp

    ta.alluqāt tāmīr karte rahte haiñ

    havā ke dosh pe tūfān zalzala sailāb

    diyā-salā.ī tiilī pe tank atom bam

    koī julūs koī poster koī taqrīr

    umaDtī bhiiḌ har vote koī ballot box

    phisaltī kursī jaadū basoñ lambī queue,

    kahīñ pe sehn meñ gobar kahīñ pe gaa.e sar

    har ek gosha hai shamshān qabr hai bistar

    akelā phirtā hai sunsān shahr meñ curfew

    qarīb ghuur pe chiThḌoñ meñ jism ke TukḌe

    mahaktī raat se janmī huī fasurda-sub.h

    bigaḌte bante hue zāviye khisaktī iiñT

    tamām silsile be-rabt munqate rishte

    magar vo dauḌte pairoñ pe uThte baḌhte haath

    har ek jabr se be-ḳhauf be-niyāzāna

    jo sub.h o shaam be-rabt raah meñ chup-chāp

    ta.alluqāt tāmīr karte rahte haiñ

    ajiib log haiñ

    ajib log hain

    sahra mein shahr mein ghar mein

    sulagti ret pe ThiThure hue samundar mein

    KHala mein chand ki banjar zamin ke sine par

    jo subh o sham ki be-rabt rah mein chup-chap

    talluqat ki tamir karte rahte hain

    hawa ke dosh pe tufan zalzala sailab

    diya-salai ki tili pe tank atom bam

    koi julus koi poster koi taqrir

    umaDti bhiD ka har wote koi ballot box

    phisalti kursi ka jadu bason ki lambi queue,

    kahin pe sehn mein gobar kahin pe gae ka sar

    har ek gosha hai shamshan qabr hai bistar

    akela phirta hai sunsan shahr mein curfew

    qarib ghur pe chiThDon mein jism ke TukDe

    mahakti raat se janmi hui fasurda-subh

    bigaDte bante hue zawiye khisakti inT

    tamam silsile be-rabt munqate rishte

    magar wo dauDte pairon pe uThte baDhte hath

    har ek jabr se be-KHauf be-niyazana

    jo subh o sham ki be-rabt rah mein chup-chap

    talluqat ki tamir karte rahte hain

    ajib log hain
