Dilli Ki Galiyan Tin Manzar

pahla manzar

san unnis sau adtis hai

sardi ki thithuri raten hain

raat ke koi aath baje hain

aaj ye sab guzri baten hain

mori darvaze ke bahar

nashe men dhut fauji gore

angrezi sarkar ke chhore

tange valon ko piit rahe hain

tange vaale ghabra ghabra kar

idhar-udhar sab bhaag rahe hain

aur sipahi aankh chura kar

dusri janib dekh rahe hain

chalte chalte raah men ruk kar

main ye manzar dekh raha huun

dusra manzar

fat.h-puri masjid ke aage

chandni-chowk ka lamba rasta

lal-qile tak le jaata hai

haath men thame apna basta

main maktab ki samt ravan huun

shahjahan ke lal-qile par

goron ka pahra baitha hai

chandni-chowk men daen-baen

galiyon kuchon bazaron men

bijli ke khambon par har-su

Dheron ladke chadhe hue hain

aur taron ko kaat rahe hain

police goli chala rahi hai

chalte chalte raah men ruk kar

main ye manzar dekh raha huun

tisra manzar

gore london chale gae hain

mangen puuri ho gaiin aaj

neta rah-numa sab ḳhush hain

mulk ne paaya hai svaraj

lal-qile par azadi ka

sah-ranga parcham lahraya

dilli ki galiyon men sab ne

azadi ka jashn manaya

lekin eka-eki jaise

parda uttha manzar badla

dhund si chhai hai har janib

jo kuchh hai sab gadla gadla

koi nahin sunta hai kisi ki

ho gae log achanak bahre

railon men be-sar ki lashen

sadkon par be-dhad ke chehre

harijan basti ki kutiya men

ḳhuun se lat-pat lahuluhan

kutiya jaise ik shamshan

gandhi ji ki laash padi hai

azadi kuchh duur khadi hai
