Sookhe pokhar, banjar dharti, neer bhaye ban-chhaoN

Sookhe pokhar, banjar dharti, neer bhaye ban-chhaoN

MiTTi miTTi lagta hai ab soona – soona gaaoN

Kutte jaise haaNp rahe hain piichhe piichhe log

Aage al-lhaR si ek laRki, Jeevan jis ka naaoN*

ShahroN ke andaaz kahaaN sah paayega dehaat

Gili kachchi pagdandi par, mat rakhiyega paaoN

Gori rangat, kaali zulfeiN, teekhay sab aakaar

Uska sab kuchh yad hai mujhko, bhuluN apna naaoN

Mamta ka dhan baaNT rahi hai saari kachli naar

Gobar-gobar haath haiN jiske, kichaR-kichhaR paaoN

SaaNjh bhayii, sab revaR pahunche apne apne Thor

Ek ‘Badnam’ phire aawaara, jis ka ghar na gaaoN
