Kaun Tum Mere Hriday Mein
       kaun tum mere hRday men?

kaun meree kasak men nit
       madhurataa bharataa alakShit?
kaun pyaase lochanon men
       ghumaḌ ghir jharataa aparichit?
       svarN svapnon kaa chiteraa
              neend ke soone nilay men!
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

anusaraN nishvaas mere
       kar rahe kisakaa nirantar?
choomane padachinh kisake
       lauTate yah shvaas phir phir?
       kaun bandee kar mujhe ab
              ba(n)dh gayaa apanee vijay me?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

ek karuN abhaav chir -
       tRpti kaa sansaar sanchit,
ek laghu kShaN de rahaa
       nirvaaN ke varadaan shat-shat;
       paa liyaa mainne kise is
              vedanaa ke madhur kray men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

goonjataa ur men n jaane
       door ke sangeet-saa kyaa!
aaj kho nij ko mujhe
       khoyaa milaa vipareet-saa kyaa!
       kyaa nahaa aaee virah-nishi
              milan-madhadin ke uday men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

timir-paaraavaar men
       aalok-pratimaa hai akampit;
aaj jvaalaa se barasataa
       kyon madhur ghanasaar surabhit?
       sun rahee hoo(n) ek hee
              jhankaar jeevan men, pralay men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

mook sukh-dukh kar rahe
       meraa nayaa shrRngaar-saa kyaa?
jhoom garvit svarg detaa -
       nat dharaa ko pyaar-saa kyaa?
       aaj pulakit sRShTi kyaa
              karane chalee abhisaar lay men?
                     kaun tum mere hRday men?

'Chal Pathik Tu Haule Se'
Priya N. Iyer


Tahal rahaa gar bhor se pahale
pag too rakhanaa dheere se
jage hue hain jeev-jantu
maanav tumase pahale se

kharagosh, keeT aur khag nikale
neeḌ, bil, kunD se khul ke
chanchal abodh chhaune sang
chalee hiran nirbhayataa  se

चलो समय के साथ चलेंगे,
परिवर्तन होगा धरती पर।
नया ज़माना पैदा होगा,
बूढ़ी दुनिया की अर्थी पर।

जो कुछ हम पर बीत चुकी है,
उस से मुक्त रहो, ओ नवयुग।
नए नए फूलों से महको,
मेरे मधुवन, जीयो जुग जुग।

~ विनोद तिवारी की कविता "मेरे मधुवन" का अंश संकलन "समर्पित सत्य समर्पित स्वप्न" से
