Kaho Kaise Ho
                       lauT rahaa hoo(n) main ateet se
                       dekhoo(n) pratham tumhaare tevar
                       mere samay! kaho kaise ho?

shor-sharaabaa cheeḳh-pukaaren saḌaken bheeḌ dukaanen hoTal
sab saamaan bahut hai lekin gaayak dard naheen hai keval
                       lauT rahaa hoo(n) main agey se
                       sochaa tum se milataa jaaoo(n)
                       mere geet! kaho kaise ho?
bhavan aur bhavanon ke jangal chaḌhate aur utarate zeene
yahaa(n) aadamee kahaa(n) milegaa sirf masheenen aur masheenen
                       lauT rahaa hoo(n) main yathaarth se
                       man ho aayaa tumhen bhenT loo(n)
                       mere svapn! kaho kaise ho?
nasl manuj kee chalee miTaatee yah laave kee ek nadee hai
yuddhon kaa aatank n poochho ḳhabaradaar beesaveen sadee hai
                       lauT rahaa hoo(n) main videsh se
                       sab se pahale kushal poo(n)chh loo(n)
                       mere desh! kaho kaise ho?
yah sabhyataa numaaish jaise log naheen hain sirf mukhauTe
Theek manuShy naheen hai koee kad se oo(n)che man se chhoTe
                       lauT rahaa hu(n) main jangal se
                       sochaa tumhe dekhataa jaaoo(n)
                       mere manuj! kaho kaise ho?
jeevan kee in raftaaron ko ab bhee baa(n)dhe kachchaa dhaagaa
subah gayaa ghar shaam n lauTe us se baḌh kar kaun abhaagaa
                       lauT rahaa hoo(n) main bichhoh se
                       pahale tumhen baa(n)h men bhar loo(n)
                       mere pyaar! kaho kaise ho?
