MORE BYMakhdoom Mohiuddin

    raat ke koī baara baje hoñge

    garmī hai

    saḌkoñ pe koī nahīñ

    būḌhā darvesh bhī chukā hai

    us jozāmī bhikāran gaaḌī

    bhī nazroñ se ojhal hai

    rāsta saaf hai

    hoTaloñ se nikaltī huī laḌkiyāñ haiñ

    na laḌkoñ ke jhurmuT

    muñDeroñ par

    dil meñ

    na dil dhḌaknā

    na bhūkī nigāheñ

    na siiTī

    qumqume

    gardaneñ taane

    chashm-bar-rāh haiñ

    koī guzre to gul ho ke

    un tamāshā kareñ

    sarakte sarakte

    vo fōtpath se

    koī chakkar hariyālī par aa jame haiñ

    chāñd niklā

    to chāroñ ne chillāyā

    (sāñp ke muñh se niklā huā jaise piilā chhachhūñdar)

    lo chāñd niklā

    vo chāñd tanhā hai

    ik dard sab ke diloñ meñ pighalne lagā

    un nazroñ ne bose liye chāñd ke

    chāñd piiTh ko thapthapāyā

    baḌe zor se

    josh o mastī ke aalam meñ

    shīshe meñ jitnī bachī thī

    vo sab baañT kar

    qahqahe maar ke

    ga.e

    aur gale mil ke

    ik dūsre ko bahut duur tak

    chūmte bhī rahe

    nāchte nāchte

    chāroñ rone lage

    har ek ke muñh se niklā

    yāro!

    maañ yaad aatī hai, jaatā huuñ

    maiñ ne taurāt o injīl o qur.ān meñ

    yarmiya hājara aur yāqūb

    ke karb dāstāneñ paḌhī haiñ

    un ronā sunā hai

    aur royā bhī huuñ

    aaj bhī ro rahā huuñ

    raat ke koi bara baje honge

    garmi hai

    saDkon pe koi nahin

    buDha darwesh bhi ja chuka hai

    us jozami bhikaran ki gaDi

    bhi nazron se ojhal hai

    rasta saf hai

    hoTalon se nikalti hui laDkiyan hain

    na laDkon ke jhurmuT

    munDeron par

    dil mein

    na dil ka dhDakna

    na bhuki nigahen

    na siTi

    qumqume

    gardanen tane

    chashm-bar-rah hain

    koi guzre to gul ho ke

    un ka tamasha karen

    sarakte sarakte

    wo footpath se

    koi chakkar ki hariyali par aa jame hain

    chand nikla

    to chaaron ne chillaya

    (sanp ke munh se nikla hua jaise pila chhachhundar)

    lo chand nikla

    wo chand tanha hai

    ek dard sab ke dilon mein pighalne laga

    un ki nazron ne bose liye chand ke

    chand ki piTh ko thapthapaya

    baDe zor se

    josh o masti ke aalam mein

    shishe mein jitni bachi thi

    wo sab banT kar

    qahqahe mar ke

    pi gae

    aur gale mil ke

    ek dusre ko bahut dur tak

    chumte bhi rahe

    nachte nachte

    chaaron rone lage

    har ek ke munh se nikla

    yaro!

    man yaad aati hai, jata hun

    main ne tauraat o injil o quran mein

    yarmiya hajara aur yaqub

    ke karb ki dastanen paDhi hain

    un ka rona suna hai

    aur roya bhi hun

    aaj bhi ro raha hun
