    raqs

    shaam khaḌī hai

    bhūrī jhāḌiyoñ,

    piilī ghāsoñ ke ḳhemoñ se bāhar niklo

    narm havā.eñ bāloñ jhālar se guzartī

    lambe lambe kānoñ meñ ḳhargoshī kartī haiñ

    surḳh koñpleñ

    sabz pattiyāñ

    saañp chhatriyāñ...

    jañgal meñ godām khulā hai pāgal

    apne bekal nathnoñ meñ

    is ḳhush-bū chhallā Daal ke raqs karo

    har ḳhatre ko chakma do

    chor chaTānoñ ke nīche

    sau darvāze haiñ

    kīsar phūloñ ke bistar haiñ

    dhuum machāne ko saarā maidān paḌā hai

    maut

    aur tum apne shabistāñ chhoḌ kar

    is bayābāñ ke añdhere rāste par

    ḳhuun meñ lat-pat paḌe ho

    is āḳhir kyā zarūrat thī

    vahāñ par tum jahāñ ke hukmarāñ the

    kyā nahīñ thaa?

    ḳhvāb dīvār kyūñ-kar paar karnā chāhte the

    is tajassus meñ kashish kaisī hai

    nā-mālūm ko tasḳhīr tamannā kis liye hai

    is purānī ārzū-mandī meñ kyā hai

    is ḳhayābāñ ke aqab meñ

    vo jo pur-asrār duniyā.eñ basī haiñ

    vo hameñ kyuuñ khīñchtī haiñ?

    raqs

    sham khaDi hai

    bhuri jhaDiyon,

    pili ghason ke KHemon se bahar niklo

    narm hawaen baalon ki jhaalar se guzarti

    lambe lambe kanon mein KHargoshi karti hain

    surKH konplen

    sabz pattiyan

    sanp chhatriyan

    jangal mein godam khula hai pagal

    apne bekal nathnon mein

    is KHush-bu ka chhalla Dal ke raqs karo

    har KHatre ko chakma do

    chor chaTanon ke niche

    sau darwaze hain

    kisar phulon ke bistar hain

    dhum machane ko sara maidan paDa hai

    maut

    aur tum apne shabistan chhoD kar

    is bayaban ke andhere raste par

    KHun mein lat-pat paDe ho

    is ki aaKHir kya zarurat thi

    wahan par tum jahan ke hukmaran the

    kya nahin tha?

    KHwab ki diwar kyun-kar par karna chahte the

    is tajassus mein kashish kaisi hai

    na-malum ko tasKHir ki tamanna kis liye hai

    is purani aarzu-mandi mein kya hai

    is KHayaban ke aqab mein

    wo jo pur-asrar duniyaen basi hain

    wo hamein kyun khinchti hain?
