Rotiyan

jab aadmi ke pet men aati hain rotiyan

phuli nahin badan men samati hain rotiyan

ankhen pari-rukhon se ladati hain rotiyan

siine upar bhi haath chalati hain rotiyan

jitne maze hain sab ye dikhati hain rotiyan

roti se jis ka naak talak pet hai bhara

karta pare hai kya vo uchhal kuud ja-ba-ja

divar phand kar koi kotha uchhal gaya

thattha hansi sharab sanam saaqi is siva

sau sau tarah ki dhuum machati hain rotiyan

jis ja pe hanDi chulha tava aur tanur hai

khaliq ki qudraton ka usi ja zuhur hai

chulhe ke aage aanch jo chalti huzur hai

jitne hain nuur sab men yahi khaas nuur hai

is nuur ke sabab nazar aati hain rotiyan

aave tave tanur ka jis ja zaban pe naam

ya chakki chulhe ke jahan gulzar hon tamam

vaan sar jhuka ke kiije DanDvat aur salam

is vaste ki khaas ye roti ke hain maqam

pahle inhin makanon men aati hain rotiyan

in rotiyon ke nuur se sab dil hain bor bor

aata nahin hai chhalni se chhan-chhan gire hai nuur

peda har ek us ka hai barfi o moti chuur

hargiz kisi tarah na bujhe pet ka tanur

is aag ko magar ye bujhati hain rotiyan

puchha kasi ne ye kisi kamil faqir se

ye mehr-o-mah haq ne banae hain kaahe ke

vo sun ke bola baaba khuda tujh ko khair de

ham to na chand samjhen na suraj hain jante

baaba hamen to ye nazar aati hain rotiyan

phir puchha us ne kahiye ye hai dil ka tuur kya

is ke mushahide men hai khulta zuhur kya

vo bola sun ke tera gaya hai shuur kya

kashf-ul-qulub aur ye kashf-ul-qubur kya

jitne hain kashf sab ye dikhati hain rotiyan

roti jab aai pet men sau qand ghul gae

gulzar phule ankhon men aur aish tul gae

do tar nivale pet men jab aa ke Dhul gae

chaudah tabaq ke jitne the sab bhed khul gae

ye kashf ye kamal dikhati hain rotiyan

roti na pet men ho to phir kuchh jatan na ho

mele ki sair khvahish-e-bagh-o-chaman na ho

bhuke gharib dil ki khuda se lagan na ho

sach hai kaha kasi ne ki bhuke bhajan na ho

allah ki bhi yaad dilati hain rotiyan

ab aage jis ke mal-pue bhar ke thaal hain

puure bhagat unhen kaho sahab ke laal hain

aur jin ke aage roghni aur shir-mal hain

aarif vahi hain aur vahi sahab-kamal hain

pakki-pakai ab jinhen aati hain rotiyan

kapde kisi ke laal hain roti ke vaste

lambe kisi ke baal hain roti ke vaste

bandhe koi rumal hain roti ke vaste

sab kashf aur kamal hain roti ke vaste

jitne hain ruup sab ye dikhati hain rotiyan

roti se nache pyada qavaed dikha dikha

asvar nache ghode ko kaava laga laga

ghunghru ko bandhe paik bhi phirta hai nachta

aur is siva jo ghaur se dekha to ja-ba-ja

sau sau tarah ke naach dikhati hain rotiyan

roti ke naach to hain sabhi khalq men pade

kuchh bhanD bhigte ye nahin phirte nachte

ye ranDiyan jo nache hain ghunghat ko munh pe le

ghunghat na jaano dosto tum zinhar use

is parde men ye apne kamati hain rotiyan

ashrafon ne jo apni ye zaten chhupai hain

sach puchhiye to apni ye shanen badhai hain

kahiye unhon ki rotiyan kis kis ne khaai hain

ashraf sab men kahiye to ab nan-bai hain

jin ki dukan se har kahin jaati hain rotiyan

duniya men ab badi na kahin aur nikoi hai

ya dushmani o dosti ya tund-khui hai

koi kisi ka aur kisi ka na koi hai

sab koi hai usi ka ki jis haath Doi hai

naukar nafar ghulam banati hain rotiyan

roti ka ab azal se hamara to hai khamir

rukhi hi roti haq men hamare hai shahd-o-shir

ya patli hove moti khamiri ho ya fatir

gehun javar bajre ki jaisi ho ‘nazir’

ham ko to sab tarah ki khush aati hain rotiyan
