“Aaj…”  

 

Sathiyo! Main ne barson tumhaare liye

Chand taron bahaaron ke sapne bune

Husn aur ishq ke git gata raha

Aarzuon ke aiwan sajata raha

Main tumhaara mughanni tumhaare liye

Jab bhi aaya nae git lata raha

Aaj lekin mere daman-e-chaak mein

Gard-e-rah-e-safar ke siwa kuchh nahin

Mere barbat ke sine mein naghmon ka dam ghut gaya

Tanen chikhon ke ambar mein dab gai hain

Aur giton ke sur hichkiyan ban gae hain

Main tumhaara mughanni hun naghma nahin hun

Aur naghme ki takhliq ka saz-o-saman

Sathiyo! Aaj tum ne bhasm kar diya hai

Aur main apna tuta hua saz thame

Sard lashon ke ambar ko tak raha hun

Mere chaaron taraf maut ki wahshaten nachti hain

Aur insan ki haiwaniyat jag uthi hai

Barbariyat ke khoon-khar ifrit

Apne napak jabdon ko khole

Khoon pi pi ke ghurra rahe hain

Bachche maon ki godon mein sahme hue hain

Ismaten sar-barahana pareshan hain

Har taraf shor-e-ah-o-buka hai

Aur main is tabahi ke tufan mein

Aag aur khoon ke haijaan mein

Sar-nigun aur shikasta makanon ke malbe se pur raston par

Apne naghmon ki jholi pasare

Dar-ba-dar phir raha hun

Mujh ko amn aur tahzib ki bhik do

Mere giton ki lai mera sur meri nai

Mere majruh honton ko phir saunp do

Sathiyo! Main ne barson tumhaare liye

Inqalab aur baghawat ke naghme alape

Ajnabi raj ke zulm ki chhanw mein

Sarfaroshi ke khwabida jazbe ubhaare

Aur us subh ki rah dekhi

Jis mein is mulk ki ruh aazad ho

Aaj zanjir-e-mahkumiyat kat chuki hai

Aur is mulk ke bahr-o-bar baam-o-dar

Ajnabi qaum ke zulmat-afshan pharere ki manhus chhanw se aazad hain

Khet sona ugalne ko bechain hain

Wadiyan lahlahane ko betab hain

Kohsaron ke sine mein haijaan hai

Sang aur khisht be-khwab wa bedar hain

Un ki aaankhon mein tamir ke khwab hain

Un ke khwabon ko takmil ka rup do

Mulk ki wadiyan ghatiyan khetiyan

Aurten bachchiyan

Hath phailae khairaat ki muntazir hain

In ko amn aur tahzib ki bhik do

Maon ko un ke honton ki shadabiyan

Nanhe bachchon ko un ki khushi bakhsh do

Mulk ki ruh ko zindagi bakhsh do

Mujh ko mera hunar meri lai bakhsh do

Aaj sari faza hai bhikari

Aur main is bhikari faza mein

Apne naghmon ki jholi pasare

Dar-ba-dar phir raha hun

Mujh ko phir mera khoya hua saz do

Main tumhaara mughanni tumhaare liye

Jab bhi aaya nae git lata rahunga
