MORE BYSarvat Husain

    maiñ un se pūchhtā huuñ:

    pul kaise banāyā jaatā hai

    pul banāne vaale kahte haiñ:

    tum ne kabhī mohabbat nahīñ

    maiñ kahtā huuñ: mohabbat kyā chiiz hai

    vo apne auzār rakhte hue kahte haiñ:

    mohabbat matlab jānñā chāhte ho

    to pahle dariyā se milo...

    rū-e-zamīn par dariyā se zyāda mohabbat karne vaalā koī nahīñ

    dariyā apne samundar taraf bahtā rahtā hai

    ye supurdagī hai

    ye supurdagī bachpan hai aur bachpan bahisht...

    lekin bahisht tak pahuñchne ke liye ek jahannam se guzarnā paḌtā hai

    maiñ pūchhtā huuñ jahannam kyā hai?

    vo kahte haiñ: is savāl javāb daraḳhtoñ ke paas hai

    koī bhī mausam ho vo apnī jagah nahīñ chhoḌte

    unheñ miTTī se mohabbat hai

    unheñ parindoñ aur chiyūñTiyoñ se mohabbat hai

    jo un ke jism meñ ghar banātī haiñ

    'ghar kyā hai?' maiñ pūchhtā huuñ?

    vo sab hañsne lagte haiñ

    pahlā mazdūr kahtā hai:

    apnī aurat taraf jaao

    har savāl javāb mil jā.egā

    main un se puchhta hun:

    pul kaise banaya jata hai

    pul banane wale kahte hain:

    tum ne kabhi mohabbat nahin ki

    main kahta hun: mohabbat kya chiz hai

    wo apne auzar rakhte hue kahte hain:

    mohabbat ka matlab jaanna chahte ho

    to pahle dariya se milo

    ru-e-zamin par dariya se zyaada mohabbat karne wala koi nahin

    dariya apne samundar ki taraf bahta rahta hai

    ye supurdagi hai

    ye supurdagi bachpan hai aur bachpan bahisht

    lekin bahisht tak pahunchne ke liye ek jahannam se guzarna paDta hai

    main puchhta hun jahannam kya hai?

    wo kahte hain: is sawal ka jawab daraKHton ke pas hai

    koi bhi mausam ho wo apni jagah nahin chhoDte

    unhen miTTi se mohabbat hai

    unhen parindon aur chiyunTiyon se mohabbat hai

    jo un ke jism mein ghar banati hain

    'ghar kya hai?' main puchhta hun?

    wo sab hansne lagte hain

    pahla mazdur kahta hai:

    apni aurat ki taraf jao

    har sawal ka jawab mil jaega
