Mere Deepak
     madhur madhur mere deepak jal!
yug yug pratidin pratikShaN pratipal;
   priyatam kaa path aalokit kar!

     saurabh phailaa vipul dhoop ban;
     mRdul mom-saa ghul re mRdu tan;
           de prakaash kaa sindhu aparimit,
           tere jeevan kaa aNu gal-gal!
pulak-pulak mere deepak jal!

     saare sheetal komal nootan,
     maa(n)g rahe tujhako jvaalaa-kaN;
           vishvashalabh sir dhun kahataa "main
           haay n jal paayaa tujhamen mil"!
sihar-sihar mere deepak jal!

     jalate nabh men dekh asankhyak;
     snehaheen nit kitane deepak;
           jalamay saagar kaa ur jalataa;
           vidyut le ghirataa hai baadal!
vihans-vihans mere deepak jal!

     drum ke ang harit komalatam,
     jvaalaa ko karate hRdayangam;
           vasudhaa ke jaḌ antar men bhee,
           bandee naheen hai taapon kee halachal!
bikhar-bikhar mere deepak jal!

     mere nishvaason se drutatar,
     subhag n too bujhane kaa bhay kar;
           main anchal kee oT kiye hoo(n),
           apanee mRdu palakon se chanchal!
sahaj-sahaj mere deepak jal!

     seemaa hee laghutaa kaa bandhan,
     hai anaadi too mat ghaḌiyaa(n) gin;
           main dRg ke akShay koshon se -
           tujhamen bharatee hoo(n) aa(n)soo-jal!
sajal-sajal mere deepak jal!

     tam aseem teraa prakaash chir;
     khelenge nav khel nirantar;
           tam ke aNu-aNu men vidyut saa -
           amiT chitr ankit karataa chal!
saral-saral mere deepak jal!

     too jal jal hotaa jitanaa kShay;
     vah sameep aataa chhalanaamay;
           madhur milan men miT jaanaa too -
           usakee ujjaval smit men ghul-khil!
madir-madir mere deepak jal!

     priyatam kaa path aalokit kar!

'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
