MORE BYArsh Siddiqui

    maiñ jab bastī sarhad par khaḌā ho kar

    ufuq meñ Dūbtī rāhoñ ko taktā thā

    to vo ro ro ke kahtī thī

    mujhe Dar hai

    tujhe ye nā-taras rāheñ na kar Dāleñ judā mujh se

    maiñ apnī niim tarsāñ uñgliyoñ se us ke aañsū poñchh kar kahtā thā

    ab kaisā judā honā

    magar maiñ dil meñ Dartā thā

    ki in rāhoñ se vāqif thā

    inhī rāhoñ pe chal kar is dayār-e-ġhair meñ aayā thā aur ye soch baiThā thā

    ki ye mere safar āḳhirī manzil hai ye in.aam hai merā

    magar har-dam ufuq meñ Dūbtī rāheñ

    sunahre bādaloñ raushnā.ī se

    havā meñ kuchh purānī bastiyoñ ke naam likhtī thiiñ

    use ik roz maiñ ne kah diyā mujh ko mare ajdād madfan bulātā hai

    mirī jaañ mujh ko jaanā hai

    magar tujh bin na jā.ūñgā

    vo ik but tarah sar ko jhukā.e chup rahī lekin

    ḳhamoshī ko zabāñ kahte to sab kuchh kah ga.ī mujh se

    jo aañsū us palkoñ se gire the ḳhushk miTTī par

    unheñ maiñ ne taḌapte sochte aur bolte dekhā

    phir ik shab us ke pahlū se maiñ uTThā aur ufuq meñ

    Dūbtī rāhoñ pe chaltā apne aabā

    us miTTī ḳhushbū ke ta.āqub

    meñ chalā aayā jo mere ḳhvāboñ meñ

    paltī thī

    mujhe pahlū se gum kar vo saada be-zabāñ laḌkī magar kyā sochtī hogī

    main jab basti ki sarhad par khaDa ho kar

    ufuq mein Dubti rahon ko takta tha

    to wo ro ro ke kahti thi

    mujhe Dar hai

    tujhe ye na-taras rahen na kar Dalen juda mujh se

    main apni nim tarsan ungliyon se us ke aansu ponchh kar kahta tha

    ab kaisa juda hona

    magar main dil mein Darta tha

    ki in rahon se waqif tha

    inhi rahon pe chal kar is dayar-e-ghair mein aaya tha aur ye soch baiTha tha

    ki ye mere safar ki aaKHiri manzil hai ye inam hai mera

    magar har-dam ufuq mein Dubti rahen

    sunahre baadalon ki raushnai se

    hawa mein kuchh purani bastiyon ke nam likhti thin

    use ek roz main ne kah diya mujh ko mare ajdad ka madfan bulata hai

    meri jaan mujh ko jaana hai

    magar tujh bin na jaunga

    wo ek but ki tarah sar ko jhukae chup rahi lekin

    KHamoshi ko zaban kahte to sab kuchh kah gai mujh se

    jo aansu us ki palkon se gire the KHushk miTTi par

    unhen main ne taDapte sochte aur bolte dekha

    phir ek shab us ke pahlu se main uTTha aur ufuq mein

    Dubti rahon pe chalta apne aaba

    ki us miTTi ki KHushbu ke taaqub

    mein chala aaya jo mere KHwabon mein

    palti thi

    mujhe pahlu se gum pa kar wo sada be-zaban laDki magar kya sochti hogi
