Bakson Mein Yaadein
bakson men band hain yaaden
       har kapaḌaa ek yaad hai
       jise tumhaare haathon ne tah kiyaa thaa
dhobee ne dhote samay in ko ragaḌaa thaa
       peeTaa thaa
mail kaT gayaa par ye n kaTeen
yah aur andar chalee gayeen
ham ne nirmam hokar inhen utaar diyaa
       inhonne kuchh naheen kahaa
par har baar
       ye hamaaraa kuchh ansh le gayeen
             jise ham jaan n sake
tvachaa se in kaa jo sambandh hai vah rakt tak hai
       rakt kaa saaraa ubaal inhonne sahaa hai
inhen khol kar dekho
       in men hamaare khoon kee khushaboo zaroor hogee
abhee ye maun hai
       par in kee ek-ek parat men jo man chhipaa hai
             vah hamaare jaane ke baad bolegaa
yaaden aadamee ke beet jaane ke baad hee bolatee hain
bakson men band rahane do inhen
       jab pooree phurasat ho tab dekhanaa
in kaa vaartaalaap baḌaa eerShyaaloo hai
       kuchh aur naheen karane degaa.
- Kumar Ravindra
