    shahr ik ik saḌak

    phāñktī aa.ī hai lākhoñ hādsoñ sard dhuul

    jaane kitne ajnabī ik dūsre ke dost banñe se kināra kar ga.e

    aur kitne āshnāoñ ke diloñ se miT ga.ī pahchān bhī

    sau nigāheñ laakh zaḳhm

    chār-samtī laakh jhuuT

    sau tamāshoñ ke paḌe haiñ jā-ba-jā dhabbe

    jinheñ

    gard-e-masāfat meñ chhupāne ke liye

    barq-pā lamhoñ ko thāme dauḌte jaate haiñ ham

    lamhe do lamhe ko dam lene ḳhātir sust ho jaa.eñ agar

    shahr ik ik saḌak

    āñkhoñ se ḳhuuñ rulvā.egī

    aur banā kar ham ko bhī ik dāstāñ

    dohrā.e

    hāñptī tahzīb ke ik ik musāfir se kahegī

    dauḌte jaao yahī hai zindagī

    mat ruko ik dūsre ke vāste

    bhāgtā hai vaqt

    lekin lamha lamha

    dauḌnā hai sab ko

    lekin tanhā tanhā

    shahr ki ek ek saDak

    phankti aai hai lakhon hadson ki sard dhul

    jaane kitne ajnabi ek dusre ke dost banne se kinara kar gae

    aur kitne aashnaon ke dilon se miT gai pahchan bhi

    sau nigahen lakh zaKHm

    chaar-samti lakh jhuT

    sau tamashon ke paDe hain ja-ba-ja dhabbe

    jinhen

    gard-e-masafat mein chhupane ke liye

    barq-pa lamhon ko thame dauDte jate hain hum

    lamhe do lamhe ko dam lene ki KHatir sust ho jaen agar

    shahr ki ek ek saDak

    aankhon se KHun rulwaegi

    aur bana kar hum ko bhi ek dastan

    dohrae gi

    hanpti tahzib ke ek ek musafir se kahegi

    dauDte jao yahi hai zindagi

    mat ruko ek dusre ke waste

    bhagta hai waqt

    lekin lamha lamha

    dauDna hai sab ko

    lekin tanha tanha
