Lo Wahi Hua
lo vahee huaa jisakaa thaa Dar,
naa rahee nadee, naa rahee lahar.

      sooraj kee kiran dahaaḌ gaee,
      garamee har deh ughaaḌ gaee,
      uTh gayaa bavanDar, dhool havaa men -
      apanaa jhanDaa gaaḌ gaee,
gauraiyaa haa(n)ph rahee Dar kar,
naa rahee nadee, naa rahee lahar.

      har or umas ke charche hain,
      bijalee pankhon ke kharche hain,
      booḌhe mahue ke haathon se,
      uḌ rahe havaa men parche hain,
"chalanaa saathee loo se bach kar".
naa rahee nadee, naa rahee lahar.

      sankalp himaalay saa galataa,
      saaraa din bhaTThee saa jalataa,
      man bhare hue, sab Dare hue,
      kis kee himmat, baahar hilataa,
hai khaḌaa soory sar ke oopar,
naa rahee nadee naa rahee lahar.

      bojhil raaton ke madhy pahar,
      chhaparee se chandrakiraN chhanakar,
      likh rahee nayaa naaraa koee,
      in tapee huee deevaaron par,
kyaa baa(n)choo(n) sab thothe aakhar,
naa rahee nadee naa rahee lahar.

phir sochaa - yah kahanaa kitanaa naakaaph़ee hai

vo havaa vaheen Thaharee hai abhee tak
aur chhootee hai roj
lagabhag rok letee huee see
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

Punam Sinha


chhoTee see duniyaa
kitane saare log
raj tam sat kaa
vibhinn sanyog.
sahooliyat ke hisaab se
baa(n)T liyaa,
kitane naamon se
pukaar liyaa,
maanyataaon aur paramparaaon men
jakaḌ liyaa.
kisee ne kahaa-
too hai
kisee ne kahaa-
too naheen hai
