Dal Ki Fariyaad

ek ladki bagharti hai daal

daal karti hai arz yuun ahval

ek din tha hari-bhari thi main

saari afat se bari thi main

tha hara khet mera gahvara

vo vatan tha mujhe bahut pyara

paani pi pi ke thi main lahrati

dhuup leti kabhi hava khati

menh barasta tha jhonke aate the

godiyon men mujhe khilate the

yahi suraj zamin the maan baava

mujh se karte the nek bartava

jab kiya mujh ko pal-pos bada

aah zalim kisan aan pada

gai taqdir yak-ba-yak jo palat

khet ka khet kar diya talpat

khuub luuta dhadi dhadi kar ke

mujh ko gaunon men le gae bhar ke

ho gai dam ke dam men barbadi

chhin gai haae meri azadi!

kya bataun kahan kahan khincha

dal-manDi men mujh ko ja becha

ek zalim se vaan pada paala

jis ne chakki men mujh ko dal Daala

hua taqdir ka likha puura

donon paton ne kar diya chura

na suni meri aah aur zaari

khuub baniye ne ki kharidari

chhana chhalni men chhaj men phatka

qaid-khana mira bana matka

phir muqaddar mujhe yahan laaya

tum ne to aur bhi ghazab Dhaya

khaal khinchi alag kiye chhilke

zakhm kyun-kar hare na hon dil ke

Dalin marchen namak lagaya khuub

rakh ke chulhe pe ji jalaya khuub

us pe kaf-gir ke bhi thoke hain

aur nakhun ke bhi kachoke hain

mere galne ki le rahi ho khabar

daant hai aap ka mire uupar

garm ghi kar ke mujh ko daagh diya

haae tum ne bhi kuchh na rahm kiya

haath dho kar padi ho pichhe tum

jaan par aa bani havas hain gum

achchhi bi-bi tumhin karo insaf

zulm hai ya nahin qusur-muaf

kaha ladki ne meri pyari daal

mujh ko maalum hai tira sab haal

tu agar khet se nahin aati

khaak men mil ke khaak ho jaati

ya koi gaae bhains char leti

pet men apne tujh ko bhar leti

main to rutba tira badhati huun

ab chapati se tujh ko khati huun

na satana na ji jalana tha

yuun tujhe aadmi banana tha

agli biiti ka tu na kar kuchh gham

mehrbani thi sab, na tha ye sitam
