Dusra Ban-Bas

raam ban-bas se jab laut ke ghar men aae

yaad jangal bahut aaya jo nagar men aae

raqs-e-divangi angan men jo dekha hoga

chhe december ko shri raam ne socha hoga

itne divane kahan se mire ghar men aae

jagmagate the jahan raam ke qadmon ke nishan

pyaar ki kahkashan leti thi angdai jahan

mod nafrat ke usi rahguzar men aae

dharm kya un ka thaa, kya zaat thii, ye janta kaun

ghar na jalta to unhen raat men pahchanta kaun

ghar jalane ko mira log jo ghar men aae

shakahari the mere dost tumhare khanjar

tum ne babar ki taraf phenke the saare patthar

hai mire sar ki khata, zakhm jo sar men aae

paanv sarju men abhi raam ne dhoe bhi na the

ki nazar aae vahan khuun ke gahre dhabbe

paanv dhoe bina sarju ke kinare se uthe

raam ye kahte hue apne dvare se uthe

rajdhani ki faza aai nahin raas mujhe

chhe december ko mila dusra ban-bas mujhe
