Rakhi

chali aati hai ab to har kahin bazar ki rakhi

sunahri sabz resham zard aur gulnar ki rakhi

bani hai go ki nadir khuub har sardar ki rakhi

salonon men ajab rangin hai us dildar ki rakhi

na pahunche ek gul ko yaar jis gulzar ki rakhi

ayaan hai ab to rakhi bhi chaman bhi gul bhi shabnam bhi

jhamak jaata hai moti aur jhalak jaata hai resham bhi

tamasha hai aha ha-ha ghanimat hai ye aalam bhi

uthana haath pyare vah-va tuk dekh len ham bhi

tumhari motiyon ki aur zari ke taar ki rakhi

machi hai har taraf kya kya salonon ki bahar ab to

har ik gul-ru phire hai rakhi bandhe haath men khush ho

havas jo dil men guzre hai kahun kya aah main tum ko

yahi aata hai ji men ban ke bamhan, aaj to yaaro

main apne haath se pyare ke bandhun pyaar ki rakhi

hui hai zeb-o-zinat aur khuban ko to rakhi se

va-lekin tum se ai jaan aur kuchh rakhi ke gul phule

divani bulbulen hon dekh gul chunne lagin tinke

tumhare haath ne mehndi ne angushton ne nakhun ne

gulistan ki chaman ki baagh ki gulzar ki rakhi

ada se haath uthte hain gul-e-rakhi jo hilte hain

kaleje dekhne valon ke kya kya aah chhilte hain

kahan nazuk ye pahunche aur kahan ye rang milte hain

chaman men shakh par kab is tarah ke phuul khilte hain

jo kuchh khubi men hai us shokh-e-gul-rukhsar ki rakhi

phiren hain rakhiyan bandhe jo har dam husn ke taare

to un ki rakhiyon ko dekh ai jaan chaav ke maare

pahan zunnar aur qashqa laga mathe upar baare

‘nazir’ aaya hai bamhan ban ke rakhi bandhne pyare

bandha lo us se tum hans kar ab is tyauhar ki rakhi
