Daku

kal raat mira beta mire ghar

chehre pe mundhe khaki kapda

banduq uthae aa pahuncha

nau-umri ki surkhi se rachi us ki ankhen

main jaan gai

aur bachpan ke sandal se manDha us ka chehra

pahchan gai

vo aaya tha khud apne ghar

ghar ki chizen le jaane ko

an-kahi kahi manvane ko

baton men duudh ki khushbu thi

jo kuchh bhi saint ke rakkha tha

main saari chizen le aai

ik laal-e-badakhshan ki chidiya

sone ka haath chhota sa

chandi ki ik nannhi takhti

resham ki phuul bhari topi

atlas ka naam likha juzdan

juzdan men lipta ik quran

par vo kaisa divana tha

kuchh chhod gaya kuchh tod gaya

aur le bhi gaya hai vo to kya

lohe ki bad-surat gaadi

petrol ki bu bhi aaegi

jis ke pahiye bhi rabar ke hain

jo baat nahin kar paegi

bachcha phir akhir bachcha hai
