    buland baañg da.avoñ

    āvāzeñ

    khoTe sikkoñ tarah

    bajtī haiñ

    phir bhī chhoTe qad ke log

    in qad-āvar āvāzoñ ko

    sunte rahte haiñ

    kāġhaz ke TukḌoñ

    ab koī qīmat na rahī

    phir bhī bhūkī āñkheñ

    unheñ DhūñDhtī haiñ

    aur nākām rahtī haiñ

    aur be-rahm haath

    unheñ jam.a karte rahte haiñ

    chhoTe qad ke log

    apnī āvāz kho chuke haiñ

    vo sirf dekh sakte haiñ

    aur sun sakte haiñ

    buland bang dawon ki

    aawazen

    khoTe sikkon ki tarah

    bajti hain

    phir bhi chhoTe qad ke log

    in qad-awar aawazon ko

    sunte rahte hain

    kaghaz ke TukDon ki

    ab koi qimat na rahi

    phir bhi bhuki aankhen

    unhen DhunDhti hain

    aur nakaam rahti hain

    aur be-rahm hath

    unhen jama karte rahte hain

    chhoTe qad ke log

    apni aawaz kho chuke hain

    wo sirf dekh sakte hain

    aur sun sakte hain
