vo

khabar be-khabar thi zinda laasho ke vyaapar ki

ankahi, ansuni, bikhari hui, lachaar si

tanhai ke aalam me ghut-ti khushi

andhere se lipti, bujhti roshni

aakhir hua kya?

sawaal reh gaye bas; zanjeero se bandhe

kuch uske, kuch apne.

sapne.

sapne jo banaye the, uske bachchon ke saath khelne ke

jaise usne hume bada kiya, khilaya, seekhaya

uske bachchon ko seekhane ke

nahi bhi hote to vo to hoti

aakhir mahila sirf maa to nahi.

ab vo nahi hai to vo baat bhi nahi

hassi ruk ruk ke aati hai

kabhi aati hai, kabhi nahi aati hai

khushiyan jaise chali si gayi hai

roshni jaise dhal si gayi hai

vo chali gayi hai
