MORE BY Mohammad Alvi

    bistar meñ leTe leTe

    us ne sochā

    ''maiñ moTā hotā jaatā huuñ

    kal maiñ apne niile suiT ko

    alter karne

    darzī ke haañ de ā.ūñgā

    nayā suiT do-chār mahīne ba.ad sahī!

    darzī dūkān se lag kar

    jo hotel hai

    us hotel

    machhlī testy hotī hai

    kal khā.ūñgā

    lekin machhlī saalī

    hāthoñ meñ bas jaatī hai

    kal sābun bhī laanā hai

    ghar aate

    letā ā.ūñgā

    ab ke ''yardley'' lā.ūñgā

    office meñ kal kaam bahut hai

    boss agar nārāz huā to

    do din chhuTTī le lūñgā

    aur agar mood huā to

    chhe ke show meñ

    ''rām-aur-shyām'' bhī dekh aa.uuñ

    picture achchhī hai saalī

    nau se baara

    club ramī

    do din se luck achchhā hai

    kal bhī saaTh ruupe jiitā thā

    aaj bhī tiis ruupe jiitā huuñ

    aur ummīd hai

    kal bhī jiit ke ā.ūñgā

    bas ab niiñd aa.e to achchhā

    kal bhī

    jiit ke

    niiñd aa.e to

    ikkā-dukkī nahla-dahla

    iiñT begam

    machhlī

    taash ke patte

    joker joker

    suiT pahan kar

    moTā-tagḌā joker....

    itnā bahut soch ke vo

    soyā thā magar

    phir na uThā!!

    dūsre din jab

    us janāza

    darzī dūkān ke paas se guzrā to

    hotel se machhlī

    duur duur tak aa.ī thī!!!

    bistar mein leTe leTe

    us ne socha

    main moTa hota jata hun

    kal main apne nile suiT ko

    alter karne

    darzi ke han de aaunga

    naya suiT do-chaar mahine baad sahi!

    darzi ki dukan se lag kar

    jo hotel hai

    us hotel ki

    machhli testy hoti hai

    kal khaunga

    lekin machhli ki bu sali

    hathon mein bas jati hai

    kal sabun bhi lana hai

    ghar aate

    leta aaunga

    ab ke yardley launga

    office mein kal kaam bahut hai

    boss agar naraaz hua to

    do din ki chhuTTi le lunga

    aur agar mood hua to

    chhe ke show mein

    ram-aur-shyam bhi dekh aaun ga

    picture achchhi hai sali

    nau se bara

    club rami

    do din se luck achchha hai

    kal bhi saTh rupe jita tha

    aaj bhi tis rupe jita hun

    aur ummid hai

    kal bhi jit ke aaunga

    bas ab nind aae to achchha

    kal bhi

    jit ke

    nind aae to

    ikka-dukki nahla-dahla

    inT ki begam

    machhli ki bu

    tash ke patte

    joker joker

    suiT pahan kar

    moTa-tagDa joker

    itna bahut sa soch ke wo

    soya tha magar

    phir na uTha!!

    dusre din jab

    us ka janaza

    darzi ki dukan ke pas se guzra to

    hotel se machhli ki bu

    dur dur tak aai thi!!!
