nai-dehli

MORE BYChandar Bhan Kaifi Dehelvi

    kyā rañg mire shahr gañgā-jamanī hai

    dehlī na.ī ujḌī huī dehlī meñ banī hai

    qabroñ pata hai na mazāroñ Thikānā

    ye shahr ta.amīr hai gor-kanī hai

    arbāb-e-mashāhīr lene ke liye naam

    kuchh daur-e-guzishta bhī tārīḳh chhanī hai

    'irvin' kahīñ but to clive kahīñ strēt

    maidān meñ sabze se bahār-e-chamanī hai

    rahte haiñ yahāñ shāhī dafātir ke mulāzim

    jin ko na kuchh ehsās-e-ġharībul-vatanī hai

    ā.ina-e-ḳhurshīd ko bhī kaaT kar rakh de

    jo ḳhaak zarra hai vo hiire kanī hai

    kyā kahte haiñ vo bekas-o-nāchār ki jin ko

    is shahr ke basne se ġham-e-be-vatanī hai

    khetī jo nahīñ bhiik pe hai in guzārā

    hāthoñ meñ kashkol gale meñ kafnī hai

    ye rañg bhī kuchh din meñ badal jā.egā 'kaifī'

    kyuuñ ye na.ī-dehlī sabab-e-dil-shikanī hai

    kya rang mere shahr ka ganga-jamani hai

    dehli nai ujDi hui dehli mein bani hai

    qabron ka pata hai na mazaron ka Thikana

    ye shahr ki tamir hai ya gor-kani hai

    arbab-e-mashahir ka lene ke liye nam

    kuchh daur-e-guzishta ki bhi tariKH chhani hai

    'irwin' ka kahin but to cliwe ki kahin street

    maidan mein sabze se bahaar-e-chamani hai

    rahte hain yahan shahi dafatir ke mulazim

    jin ko na kuchh ehsas-e-gharibul-watani hai

    aaina-e-KHurshid ko bhi kaT kar rakh de

    jo KHak ka zarra hai wo hire ki kani hai

    kya kahte hain wo bekas-o-nachaar ki jin ko

    is shahr ke basne se gham-e-be-watani hai

    kheti jo nahin bhik pe hai in ka guzara

    hathon mein hi kashkol gale mein kafni hai

    ye rang bhi kuchh din mein badal jaega 'kaifi'

    kyun ye nai-dehli sabab-e-dil-shikani hai
