Kali Diwar

kal washington shahr ki ham ne sair bahut ki yaar

guunj rahi thi sab duniya men jis ki jai-jai-kar

mulkon mulkon ham ghume the banjaron ki misl

lekin is ki saj-dhaj sach-much dil-daron ki misl

raushniyon ke rang bahen yuun rasta nazar na aae

man ki ankhon vaala bhi yaan andha ho ho jaae

unche baam charaghan raste rup-bhare bazar

jagti ankhon se dekha hai khvabon ka sansar

ek safed imarat jis ki nagar nagar men dhuum

andar duniya bhar ki kalak bahar se maasum

yahi safed imarat jis men bahut badi sarkar

yahin karen saudagar chhoti qaumon ka bevpar

yahin pe jadu-gar baitha jab kahin ki Dor hilae

har basti nagasaki hiroshima ban jaae

isi imarat se kuchh duur hi ik kaali divar

logon ka mela aisa laga tha jaise koi tyauhar

is kaali divar pe kanda dekhe hazaron naam

un namon ke biich likha tha shohda-e-vietnam

as-pas to jama hua tha khilqat ka amboh

sab ki ankhon men sannata chehron par andoh

bekal bahnen ghayal maaen aur dukhi bevayen

sajan tum kis des sidhare sochen mahbubaen

apne pyaron dil-daron ka ojhal mukhda Dhunden

is kaali divar pe un ke naam ka tukda Dhunden

dilon men dukh ankhon men shabnam hathon men phuul uthae

is namon ke qabristan ka bhed koi kya paae

na turbat na katba koi na haDDi na maas

phir bhi pagal nainan ko thi piya milan ki aas

kahin kahin is kaali sil par koi safed gulab

yuun be-tab pada tha jaise andhi aankh ka khvab

kanta ban kar sabhi ke dil men khatke ek saval

kis karan mitti men milae hiron jaise laal

Ho-chi-minh ke des men ham ne kya kya sitam na Dhaae

us ke jiyale to azadi ka suraj le aae

lekin itne chand ganva kar ham ne bhala kya paaya

ham bad-qismat aise jin ko dhuup mili na saaya

mukh moti de kar hasil ki ye kaali divar

ye kaali divar jo hai bas ik khali divar

ye kaali divar jo hai namon ka qabristan

washington ke shahr men dafn hain kis kis ke arman
