Prateekshaa
madhur prateekShaa hee jab itanee, priy tum aate tab kyaa hotaa?

maun raat is bhaanti ki jaise, koee gat veeNaa par baj kar,
abhee-abhee soee khoee-see, sapanon men taaron par sir dhar
aur dishaaon se pratidhvaniyaa(n), jaagrat sudhiyon-see aatee hain,
kaan tumhaare taan kaheen se yadi sun paate, tab kyaa hotaa?

tumane kab dee baat raat ke soone men tum aane vaale,
par aise hee vakt praaN man, mere ho uThate matavaale,
saa(n)sen ghoomaghoom phiraphir se, asamanjas ke kShaN ginatee hain,
milane kee ghaḌiyaa(n) tum nishchit, yadi kar jaate tab kyaa hotaa?

utsukataa kee akulaahaT men, mainne palak paa(n)vaḌe Daale,
ambar to mashahoor ki sab din, rahataa apane hosh samhaale,
taaron kee mahaphil ne apanee aa(n)kh bichhaa dee kis aashaa se,
mere maun kuTee ko aate tum dikh jaate tab kyaa hotaa?

baiTh kalpanaa karataa hoo(n), pagachaap tumhaaree mag se aatee,
ragarag men chetanataa ghulakar, aa(n)soo ke kaNasee jhar jaatee,
namak Dalee-saa gal apanaapan, saagar men ghulamila-saa jaataa,
apanee baa(n)hon men bharakar priy, kaNTh lagaate tab kyaa hotaa?

'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

mainne tumhaaree kiraNen pee hain,
tumhaaree aag ko
paas baiThakar taapaa hai.

aur afavaah yah bhee hai
