Kachchi Basti

galiyan

aur galiyon mein galiyan

chhoTe ghar

niche darwaze

TaT ke parde

maili bad-rangi diwaren

diwaron se sar Takraati

koi gali

galiyon ke sine par bahti

gandi nali

galiyon ke mathe par bahta

aawazon ka ganda nala

aawazon ki bhiD bahut hai

insanon ki bhiD bahut hai

kaDwe aur kasile chehre

bad-hali ke zahr se hain zahrile chehre

bimari se pile chehre

marte chehre

haare chehre

be-bas aur bechaare chehre

sare chehre

ek pahaDi kachre ki

aur us par phirte

aawara kutton se bachche

apna bachpan DhunD rahe hain

din Dhalta hai

is basti mein rahne wale

auron ki jannat ko apni mehnat de kar

apne jahannam ki jaanib

ab thake hue

jhunjhlae hue se

lauT rahe hain

ek gali mein

zang lage pipe rakkhe hain

kachchi daru mahak rahi hai

aaj sawere se

basti mein

qatl-o-KHun ka

chaqu-zani ka

koi qissa nahin hua hai

KHair

abhi to sham hai

puri raat paDi hai

yun lagta hai

sari basti

jaise ek dukhta phoDa hai

yun lagta hai

sari basti

jaise hai ek jalta kaDhaw

yun lagta hai

jaise KHuda nukkaD par baiTha

TuTe-phuTe insan

aune-paune damon

bech raha hai!
