Chhand Prasang Nahin Hain
ham jeevan ke mahaakaavy hain
keval chhand prasang naheen hain.
         kankaḌ-patthar kee dharatee hai
         apane to paa(n)von ke neeche
         ham kab kahate bandhu! bichhaao
         svaagat men makhamalee galeeche
retee par jo chitr banaatee
aisee rang-tarang naheen hai.
         tumako raas naheen aa paayee
         kyon ajaatashatrutaa hamaaree
         chhip-chhipakar jo karate rahate
         sheetayuddh kee tum taiyaaree
ham bhaaḌe ke sainik lekar
laḌate koee jang naheen hain.
         kahate-kahate hamen maseehaa
         tum laTakaa dete saleeb par
         hansen tumhaaree kooTaneeti par
         kuḌhen yaa ki apane naseeb par
bheetar-bheetar se jo pole
ham ve Dhol-mRdang naheen hai.
         tum saamuhik bahiShkaar kee
         mitr! bhale yojanaa banaao
         jahaa(n)-jahaa(n) par likhaa huaa hai
         naam hamaaraa, use miTaao
jisakee Dor haath tumhaare
ham vah kaTee patang naheen hai.
