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!

'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
