adil-mansuri

Lekin

kaali ainak lagae ghumte rahna suraj men sadkon par hotalon men

theateron men masjidon men dukanon men railway platform par

bhatiyar galiyon men shamil hona bujhe bujhe chehron vaali bhiid men takte rahna

safed divaron ko akele layaani hai sab kuchh aur jo dikhai deta hai

vo nahin hai phir bhi dikhai deta hai koi farq nahin padta paanv hain juraben

na hone se life aur time na padhne se yahi kya kam hai ki subh se

shaam tak jama karte hain lafzon ko radio sunte hain aur dekhte hain mire

hue kabutar ki aankh schōl se lautte hue bachche sharab ki jhiil men tairte

shikare pachas se kam sher ki ghazal nahin likhte firaq aaj bhi qabaili

kamar se bandhe phirte hain chalen gaz ki shalvar kya hota hai naam se

ya sher kahne se ya din-bhar unghte rahne se ya kitaben sunghne se

taash khelne ka maza hi aur hai ahamadabad ho ya lahore har jagah hota hai

suraj ghar baithe ganga hai bhaai congress men phuut pade ya saat

hazar insan maar diye jaaen bhuke uthte hain har subh bistar se kisi ne

dekhe hain baiket aur picasso kabaDDi ke maidan men ya gambarsong ko

istiri karte hue nickson se le kar murar-ji tak koi bhi rok na saka

chhink aur khansi ab ankhen khol dijiye hazrat dekhiye puura

america chhink raha hai khans raha hai idhar dekhiye ye hindostan

bhi chhi.k raha hai khans raha hai khans raha hai chhi.k raha hai

kahan se shurua hui hai tarikh aur kahan ja kar rukna hai logon ko

udaas rahti hain hamila aurten bas aur cinema ki qatar men gher rakkhi hai

zamin bhikariyon ne aur mangao charas aur ganja phir bhi alag karna mushkil

hai purani ko new-delhi se lashon ko dekh kar mahfuz nahin hote tum kaise

aadmi ho kahan gaiin vo tavaifen kahan gae vo qavval maani to har lafz

men maujud hai lekin
