Oonchai
oo(n)che pahaaḌ par,
peḌ naheen lagate,
paudhe naheen ugate,
n ghaas hee jamatee hai.
          jamatee hai sirph barph,
          jo, kaphan kee tarah saphed aur,
          maut kee tarah ThanDee hotee hai.
          khelatee, khil-khilaatee nadee,
          jisakaa roop dhaaraN kar,
          apane bhaagy par boond-boond rotee hai.
aisee oo(n)chaaee,
jisakaa paras
paanee ko patthar kar de,
aisee oo(n)chaaee
jisakaa daras heen bhaav bhar de,
abhinandan kee adhikaaree hai,
aarohiyon ke liye aamantraN hai,
us par jhanDe gaaḌe jaa sakate hain,
          kintu koee gauraiyaa,
          vahaa(n) neeḌ naheen banaa sakatee,
          naa koee thakaa-maandaa baTohee,
          usakee chhaanv men palabhar palak hee jhapakaa sakataa hai.

sachchaaee yah hai ki
keval oo(n)chaaee hee kaaphi naheen hotee,
sabase alag-thalag,
parivesh se pRthak,
apanon se kaTaa-banTaa,
shoony men akelaa khaḌaa honaa,
pahaaḌ kee mahaanataa naheen,
majabooree hai.
oo(n)chaaee aur gaharaaee men
aakaash-paataal kee dooree hai.
          jo jitanaa oo(n)chaa,
          utanaa ekaakee hotaa hai,
          har bhaar ko svayan Dhotaa hai,
          chehare par muskaanen chipakaa,
          man hee man rotaa hai.

jarooree yah hai ki
oo(n)chaaee ke saath vistaar bhee ho,
jisase manuShy,
ThoonT saa khaḌaa n rahe,
auron se ghule-mile,
kisee ko saath le,
kisee ke sang chale.
          bheeḌ men kho jaanaa,
          yaadon men Doob jaanaa,
          svayan ko bhool jaanaa,
          astitv ko arth,
          jeevan ko sugandh detaa hai.
dharatee ko baunon kee naheen,
oo(n)che kad ke insaanon kee jaroorat hai.
itane oo(n)che ki aasamaan chhoo len,
naye nakShatron men pratibhaa kee beej bo len,
          kintu itane oo(n)che bhee naheen,
          ki paa(n)v tale doob hee n jame,
          koee kaanTaa n chubhe,
          koee kali n khile.

n vasant ho, n patajhaḌ,
hon sirph oo(n)chaaee kaa andhaḌ,
maatr akelaapan kaa sannaaTaa.

          mere prabhu!
          mujhe itanee oo(n)chaaee kabhee mat denaa,
          gairon ko gale n lagaa sakoo(n),
          itanee rukhaaee kabhee mat denaa.

'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
