    duur us parinde ne

    apnā giit dohrāyā

    ''aaj ham ne apnā dil

    ḳhuuñ kiyā huā dekhā

    gum kiyā huā pāyā''

    kaun sa station hai?

    Dasna hai sahib-ji

    aap ko utarna hai?

    ji nahin, nahin, lekin

    Dasna to tha hi wo

    mere sath 'qisar' thi

    ye baDi baDi aankhen

    ek talash mein khoi

    raat bhar nahin soi

    jab main us ko pahunchane

    is ujaD basti mein

    sath le ke aaya tha

    main ne un se phir puchha

    aap mustaqil shayad

    Dasna mein rahte hain?

    ji yahan pe kuchh meri

    sut ki dukanen hain

    kuchh taam-KHane hain

    main suna kiya baiTha

    bolta raha wo shaKHs

    kuchh zamin-dari hai

    mere bap dada ne

    kuchh makan chhoDe the

    un ko bech kar main ne

    karobar khola hai

    is haqir basti mein

    kaun aa ke rahta tha

    lekin ab yahi basti

    bambai hai dilli hai

    qimaten zaminon ki

    itni baDh gain sahib

    ek zamin hi kya hai

    khane pine ki chizen

    aam jine ki chizen

    bhao das-gune hain ab

    bolta raha wo shaKHs

    is qadar girani hai

    aag lag gai jaise

    aasman had hai bas

    main ne chaunk kar puchha

    aasman mahl tha ek

    sayyadon ki basti mein

    aasman nahin sahib

    ab mahl kahan hoga?

    hans paDa ye kah kar wo

    mere zehn mein us ki

    baat pai-ba-pai gunji

    ab mahl kahan hoga

    is dayar mein shayad

    'qaisar' ab nahin rahti

    wo baDi baDi aankhen

    ab na dekh paunga

    mulk ka ye baTwara

    le gaya kahan us ko

    dewDhi ka sannaTa

    aur hamari sargoshi

    mujh se kitne chhoTe ho

    main ne kuchh kaha tha phir

    us ne kuchh kaha tha phir

    hai raqam kahan wo sab

    dard ki giran-jaani

    meri shola-afshani

    us ki jalwa-samani

    hai raqam kahan wo ab

    karb-e-zist sab mera

    guftugu ka Dhab mera

    us ka hath hathon mein

    le ke jab main kahta tha

    ab chuDao to jaanun

    rasm-e-bewafai ko

    aaj mo'tabar manun

    us ko le ke bahon mein

    jhuk ke us ke chehre par

    bhench kar kaha tha ye

    bolo kaise niklogi

    meri dastaras se tum

    mere is qafas se tum

    bhure baadalon ka dal

    dur uDta jata hai

    peD par kahin baiTha

    ek parind gata hai

    chil-chil ek gilahri ki

    kan mein khaTakti hai

    rail chalne lagti hai

    rah ke daraKHton ki

    chhanw Dhalne lagti hai

    mujh se kitne chhoTe ho

    aur meri giran-goshi

    dewDhi ka sannaTa

    aur hamari sargoshi

    hai raqam kahan wo sab?

    dur us parinde ne

    apna git dohraya

    aaj hum ne apna dil

    KHun kiya hua dekha

    gum kiya hua paya
