"kahatee hai mujhase yah cheTee, too meree naanee kee beTee
kah maa(n) kah leTee hee leTee, raajaa thaa yaa raanee?
maa(n) kah ek kahaanee."


"too hai haThee, maanadhan mere, sun upavan men baḌe savere,
taat bhramaN karate the tere, jahaa(n) surabhi manamaanee."
"jahaa(n) surabhi manamaanee! haa(n) maa(n) yahee kahaanee."

"varN varN ke phool khile the, jhalamal kar himabindu jhile the,

kah do nirbhay jay ho jisakaa, sun loo(n) teree vaaNee"
"maa(n) meree kyaa baanee? main sun rahaa kahaanee.

koee niraparaadh ko maare to kyon n any use ubaare?
rakShak par bhakShak ko vaare, nyaay dayaa kaa daanee."

"nyaay dayaa kaa daanee! toone guNee kahaanee."

 Sakhi, Ve Mujhse Kahkar Jaate
This Month :
'Chhipaa Lenaa'
Ram Krishna "Kaushal"


jab veg pavan kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

kuchh kahate kahate ruk jaanaa
kuchh aankhon aankhon kah denaa
kuchh sun lenaa chupake chupake
kuchh chupake chupake sah lenaa

rahane dekar man kee man men
tum geet praNay ke gaa lenaa

jab veg man kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

nabh men neerav taare honge
man men hongee baaten manakee
kuchh sapane honge rang bhare
kuchh yaaden beete jeevan kee

jab chaand ghaTaa men muskaae
tum ur kee peer sulaa lenaa

jab veg pavan kaa baḌh jaae
anchal men deep chhipaa lenaa.

kuchh sanyam se kuchh nishchay se
nij yauvan man chhalate jaanaa

tumhaaree aag ko
paas baiThakar taapaa hai.

aur afavaah yah bhee hai
