Ek Mahal Tha Raja Ka Ek Raj-Kumari Hoti Thi

ek mahal tha raaja ka ik raj-kumari hoti thi

us raaja ko apni parja jaan se pyari hoti thi

baaba kahte ye jo khanDar hai sita-ram ka mandir tha

us mandir ki ek pujaran ram-dulari hoti thi

pushpa aur radha bhi donon meri bahnen hoti thiin

mangal-das aur meri beta gahri yaari hoti thi

ek diye ki lau men baaba ‘mir’ aur ‘ghalib’ padhte the

ek angethi hoti thi aur ik almari hoti thi

shaam Dhale ik lawn men saare baith ke chaae piite the

mez hamara ghar ka tha kursi sarkari hoti thi

ek kuaan mithe paani ka aur ik budha bargad tha

ek mohabbat ka gahvara basti saari hoti thi

mithe giton ki vo risna mithi dhun aur mithe bol

puran-mashi par angan men shab-bedari hoti thi

ab jo mulla vaaiz kare to khauf sa aane lagta hai

mohan-das se naaten sun kar riqqat taari hoti thi

rishton ka ehsas lahu ke andar rachta-basta tha

kab aisi nafsa-nafsi aur mara-mari hoti thi
