abu-bakr-abbad

Ghair-Mutawaqqa Mulaqat

barson baad jab us ko dekha phuul sa chehra badal chuka tha

peshani par fikr ki aayat ankhen ab sanjida thiin

hont kanval ab bhi vaise par shadabi kuchh kam kam thi

pakke phalon ka bojh uthae jism tana bal khata tha

rangin pairahan men ab bhi

khvab ki surat lagti thi

jaane kaisi kaisi hikayat dekh use yaad aati thi

pahli dafa jab saath the baithe class ke andar ham donon

us ke jism ke lams ne mujh ko

pahle to bulaya tha phir pakka dost banaya tha

shaam talak mele men kaise phirte rahe the idhar-udhar

raat gae mammy ne us ko khoti-khari sunai thi

rail ke andar baith ke kaise sharmae ghabrae the

baghair ticket ke pahunch ke ghar par kitni mauj manai thi

dopahar ko Dhabe men

chaae aur cigarette ke saath

thode se rumani ho kar

kya kya baten karte the

ghar ke bahar lawn bhi hoga genda aur gul-mohar ke phuul

khari khaat nahin rakhenge bed bade mahnge honge

suit mira aisa hoga teri saari resham ki

bete ka jo naam rakhenge hindu na muslim hoga

bil chukate vaqt men aksar paise kam pad jaate the

dekh ke daddu hansta tha phir

jaane kyuun khush hota tha

koi baat nahin hai bete

kal jab aao de jaana

jaate hue jab seth ne us ki kamar men baazu pahnaya

dekh ke us ki ankhen mujh ko chhalak padi thiin chup ke se

soch raha tha palat ke ab vo

puchhegi tum kaise ho

ye hai aap ki coffē sahab aur bhi kuchh chahiye hoga
