Is Paar Us Paar
is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

yah chaa(n)d udit hokar nabh men kuchh taap miTaataa jeevan kaa,
laharaalaharaa yah shaakhaae(n) kuchh shok bhulaa detee man kaa,
       kal murjhaanevaalee kaliyaa(n) ha(n)sakar kahatee hain magan raho,
       bulabul taru kee phunagee par se sandesh sunaatee yauvan kaa,
tum dekar madiraa ke pyaale meraa man bahalaa detee ho,
us paar mujhe bahalaane kaa upachaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

jag men ras kee nadiyaa(n) bahatee, rasanaa do boonden paatee hai,
jeevan kee jhilamilasee jhaa(n)kee nayanon ke aage aatee hai,
       svarataalamayee veeNaa bajatee, milatee hai bas jhankaar mujhe,
       mere sumanon kee gandh kaheen yah vaayu uḌaa le jaatee hai!
aisaa sunataa, us paar, priye, ye saadhan bhee chhin jaae(n)ge,
tab maanav kee chetanataa kaa aadhaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

pyaalaa hai par pee paae(n)ge, hai gyaat naheen itanaa hamako,
is paar niyati ne bhejaa hai, asamarthabanaa kitanaa hamako,
       kahane vaale, par kahate hai, ham karmon men svaadheen sadaa,
       karane vaalon kee paravashataa hai gyaat kise, jitanee hamako?
kah to sakate hain, kahakar hee kuchh dil halakaa kar lete hain,
us paar abhaage maanav kaa adhikaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

kuchh bhee n kiyaa thaa jab usakaa, usane path men kaa(n)Te boye,
ve bhaar die dhar kandhon par, jo rorokar hamane Dhoe,
       mahalon ke sapanon ke bheetar jarjar kha(n)Dahar kaa saty bharaa!
       ur men esee halachal bhar dee, do raat n ham sukh se soe!
ab to ham apane jeevan bhar us kroorakaThin ko kos chuke,
us paar niyati kaa maanav se vyavahaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

sansRti ke jeevan men, subhage! aisee bhee ghaḌiyaa(n) aaaingee,
jab dinakar kee tamahar kiraNe tam ke andar chhip jaae(n)gee,
       jab nij priyatam kaa shav rajanee tam kee chaadar se Dhak degee,
       tab ravishashipoShit yah pRthivee kitane din khair manaaegee!
jab is lambechauḌe jag kaa astitv n rahane paaegaa,
tab teraa meraa nanhaasaa sansaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

aisaa chir patajhaḌ aaegaa, koyal n kuhuk phir paaegee,
bulabul n andhere men gaagaa jeevan kee jyoti jagaaegee,
       agaNit mRdunav pallav ke svar 'bharabhar' n sune jaae(n)ge,
       aliavalee kalidal par gunjan karane ke hetu n aaegee,
jab itanee rasamay dhvaniyon kaa avasaan, priy ho jaaegaa,
tab shuShk hamaare kanThon kaa udgaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

sun kaal prabal kaa guru garjan nirjhariNee bhoolegee nartan,
nirjhar bhoolegaa nij 'Talamal', saritaa apanaa 'kalakal' gaayan,
       vah gaayakanaayak sindhu kaheen, chup ho chhip jaanaa chaahegaa!
       mu(n)h khol khaḌe rah jaae(n)ge gandharv, apsaraa, kinnaragaN!
sangeet sajeev huaa jinamen, jab maun vahee ho jaae(n)ge,
tab, praaN, tumhaaree tantree kaa, jaḌ taar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

utare in aakhon ke aage jo haar chamelee ne pahane,
vah chheen rahaa dekho maalee, sukumaar lataaon ke gahane,
       do din men kheenchee jaaegee ooShaa kee saaḌee sindooree
       paT indradhanuSh kaa satarangaa paaegaa kitane din rahane!
jab moortimatee sattaaon kee shobhaashuShamaa luT jaaegee,
tab kavi ke kalpit svapnon kaa shrRngaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

dRg dekh jahaa(n) tak paate hain, tam kaa saagar laharaataa hai,
phir bhee us paar khaḌaa koee ham sab ko kheench bulaataa hai!
       main aaj chalaa tum aaogee, kal, parason, sab sangeesaathee,
       duniyaa roteedhotee rahatee, jisako jaanaa hai, jaataa hai.
meraa to hotaa man DagaDag mag, taT par hee ke halakoron se!
jab main ekaakee pahu(n)choo(n)gaa, ma(n)jhadhaar n jaane kyaa hogaa!
       is paar, priye madhu hai tum ho, us paar n jaane kyaa hogaa!

jab gujarane lagataa hoo(n) vahaa(n) se
jahaa(n) us din gujarate phon aa gayaa thaa tumhaaraa
aur thoḌee der ke lie aas paas
champaa ke phool khil aaye the

chhoTee see duniyaa
kitane saare log

kisee ne kahaa-
too naheen hai
