Kahte Hain Taare Gaate Hain
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!
                       sannaaTaa vasudhaa par chhaayaa,
                       nabh men hamane kaan lagaayaa,
phir bhee agaNit kanThon kaa yah raag naheen ham sun paate hain!
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!

                       svarg sunaa karataa yah gaanaa,
                       pRthivee ne to bas yah jaanaa,
agaNit os-kaNon men taaron ke neerav aa(n)soo aate hain!
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!

                       oopar dev tale maanavagaN,
                       nabh men donon gaayan-rodan,
raag sadaa oopar ko uThataa, aa(n)soo neeche jhar jaate hain.
                       kahate hain taare gaate hain!

'Kahin Kuchh Bhee Uthlaa Na Rah Jaae'
Jyoti Chawla


in dinon main Doob-utaraa rahee hoo(n)
apane hee bheetar ke paanee men
aise jaise ek pyaalaa ho meree deh aur
chaay pattee ke saishe-saa meraa vyaktitv
Doob aur utaraa rahaa hai apane hee bheetar kaheen

n jaane kyoo(n) jitanee baar ubaratee hoo(n) khud se
phir-phir Doob jaanaa chaahatee hoo(n) khud men hee
ki sadiyaa(n) gavaah hain ..
