Tarikh Ke Murda-Khane Se

naari aur shudar ko saman samajhne vaale maha-purush

itihas ke pannon men kho gae hain

hont aaj bhi thartharate hain

lafz maile na ho jaaen

zamin thi to pathrili

lekin apna kuaan khoda

to paani mitha nikla

phunkarte abhushan

sanduqon men band kar ke

chabi buzurgon ke havale kar di gai

udte hue lafzon ko mutthiyon men pakadte hi

chand sharmane laga

raushni ka sauda karne valon ne

gahre gadhe khod kar

kirnon ko dafnana chaha

lekin vo zinda shiryanon men

lahu ban kar daud gaiin

masamon se phutte ujalon ki yurish men

bah nikle jaane kitne ‘mir’ o ‘sauda’

kitne ‘kalidas’

ulti pothi pakde pakde

jaane kab Dhaai akhshar sidhe

Dhaai ulte padhe

aur dariya men Dupki lagane se pahle

sarasvati ko kahte suna

dushyant ki angushtari lahron ke havale kar do

machhliyan chughul-ḳhor hoti hain

‘bharat’ ko apne andar thame raho

ta-abad
