Mujhe Pukaar Lo
iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki tum mujhe pukaar lo!

zameen hai n bolatee n aasamaan bolataa,
jahaan dekhakar mujhe naheen jabaan kholataa,
       naheen jagah kaheen jahaa(n) n ajanabee ginaa gayaa,
       kahaa(n)-kahaa(n) n phir chukaa dimaag-dil TaTolataa,
kahaa(n) manuShy hai ki jo umeed chhoḌakar jiyaa,
iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki tum mujhe pukaar lo

iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki tum mujhe pukaar lo!

timir-samudr kar sakee n paar netr kee taree,
vinaShT svapn se ladee, viShaad yaad se bharee,
       n kool bhoomi kaa milaa, n kor bhor kee milee,
       n kaT sakee, n ghaT sakee virah-ghiree vibhaavaree,
kahaa(n) manuShy hai jise kamee khalee n pyaar kee,
iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki tum mujhe dulaar lo!

iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki tum mujhe pukaar lo!

ujaaḌ se lagaa chukaa umeed main bahaar kee,
nidaagh se umeed kee basant ke bayaar kee,
       marusthalee mareechikaa sudhaamayee mujhe lagee,
       angaar se lagaa chukaa umeed mai tuShaar kee,
kahaa(n) manuShy hai jise n bhool shool-see gaḌee
iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki bhool tum sudhaar lo!

iseelie khaḌaa rahaa ki tum mujhe pukaar lo!
pukaar kar dulaar lo, dulaar kar sudhaar lo!

jab main us stree se milaa

mainne kahaa - main tumase prem karataa hoon
phir sochaa - yah kahanaa kitanaa naakaaph़ee hai

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

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
