noon-meem-rashid

Andha Kabaadi

shahr ke goshon men hain bikhre hue

pa-shikasta sar-burida khvab

jin se shahr vaale be-khabar!

ghumta huun shahr ke goshon men roz o shab

ki un ko jama kar luun

dil ki bhatti men tapaun

jis se chhat jaae purana mail

un ke dast-o-pa phir se ubhar aaen

chamak utthen lab o rukhsar o gardan

jaise nau-arasta dulhon ke dil ki hasraten

phir se in khvabon ko samt-e-rah mile!

”khvab le lo khvab….”

subh hote chauk men ja kar lagata huun sada

khvab asli hain ki naqli?”

yuun parakhte hain ki jaise un se badh kar

khvab-dan koi na ho!

khvab-gar main bhi nahin

surat-gar-e-sani huun bas

haan magar meri maishat ka sahara khvab hain!

shaam ho jaati hai

main phir se lagata huun sada

muft le lo muft, ye sone ke khvab”

”muft” sun kar aur Dar jaate hain log

aur chupke se sarak jaate hain log

”dekhna ye ”muft” kahta hai

koi dhoka na ho?

aisa koi shoabada pinhan na ho?

ghar pahunch kar tuut jaaen

ya pighal jaaen ye khvab?

bhak se ud jaaen kahin

ya ham pe koi sehr kar Dalen ye khvab

ji nahin kis kaam ke?

aise kabadi ke ye khvab

aise na-bina kabadi ke ye khvab!”

raat ho jaati hai

khvabon ke pulande sar pe rakh kar

munh bisore lautta huun

raat bhar phir badbadata huun

”ye le lo khvab….”

”aur le lo mujh se in ke daam bhi

khvab le lo, khvab

mere khvab

khvab mere khvab

khvab

in ke daam bhi”
