Basanti Hawa
havaa hoo(n), havaa main
basantee havaa hoo(n).

        suno baat meree -
        anokhee havaa hoo(n).
        baḌee baavalee hoo(n),
        baḌee mastmaulaa.
        naheen kuchh phikar hai,
        baḌee hee niDar hoo(n).
        jidhar chaahatee hoo(n),
        udhar ghoomatee hoo(n),
        musaaphir ajab hoo(n).

n ghar-baar meraa,
n uddeshy meraa,
n ichchhaa kisee kee,
n aashaa kisee kee,
n premee n dushman,
jidhar chaahatee hoo(n)
udhar ghoomatee hoo(n).
havaa hoo(n), havaa main
basantee havaa hoo(n)!

        jahaa(n) se chalee main
        jahaa(n) ko gaee main -
        shahar, gaa(n)v, bastee,
        nadee, ret, nirjan,
        hare khet, pokhar,
        jhulaatee chalee main.
        jhumaatee chalee main!
        havaa hoo(n), havaa mai
        basantee havaa hoo(n).

chaḌhee peḌ mahuaa,
thapaathap machaayaa;
giree dhamm se phir,
chaḌhee aam oopar,
use bhee jhakoraa,
kiyaa kaan men 'koo',
utarakar bhagee main,
hare khet pahu(n)chee -
vahaa(n), genhu(n)on men
lahar khoob maaree.

        pahar do pahar kyaa,
        anekon pahar tak
        isee men rahee main!
        khaḌee dekh alasee
        lie sheesh kalasee,
        mujhe khoob soojhee -
        hilaayaa-jhulaayaa
        giree par n kalasee!
        isee haar ko paa,
        hilaaee n sarason,
        jhulaaee n sarason,
        havaa hoo(n), havaa main
        basantee havaa hoo(n)!

mujhe dekhate hee
araharee lajaaee,
manaayaa-banaayaa,
n maanee, n maanee;
use bhee n chhoḌaa -
pathik aa rahaa thaa,
usee par Dhakelaa;
ha(n)see zor se main,
ha(n)see sab dishaae(n),
ha(n)se lahalahaate
hare khet saare,
ha(n)see chamachamaatee
bharee dhoop pyaaree;
basantee havaa men
ha(n)see sRShTi saaree!
havaa hoo(n), havaa main
basantee havaa hoo(n)!

'Chhipaa Lenaa'
Ram Krishna "Kaushal"


jab veg pavan kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

kuchh kahate kahate ruk jaanaa
kuchh aankhon aankhon kah denaa
kuchh sun lenaa chupake chupake
kuchh chupake chupake sah lenaa

rahane dekar man kee man men
tum geet praNay ke gaa lenaa

jab veg man kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

nabh men neerav taare honge
man men hongee baaten manakee
kuchh sapane honge rang bhare
kuchh yaaden beete jeevan kee

jab chaand ghaTaa men muskaae
tum ur kee peer sulaa lenaa

jab veg pavan kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

kuchh sanyam se kuchh nishchay se
nij yauvan man chhalate jaanaa

tumhaaree aag ko
paas baiThakar taapaa hai.

aur afavaah yah bhee hai
