suraj ko kya pata hai kidhar dhup chahiye


sūraj ko kyā pata hai kidhar dhuup chāhiye
āñgan baḌā hai apne bhī ghar dhuup chāhiye

ā.īne TuuT TuuT ke bikhre haiñ chār-sū
DhūñDeñge aks aks magar dhuup chāhiye

bhīge hue paroñ se to uḌne na pā.eñge
kāTūñ na un parindoñ ke par dhuup chāhiye

ham se darīda-pairahan-o-jāñ ke vāste
yāqūt chāhiye na guhar dhuup chāhiye

sūraj na jaane kaun sī vaadī meñ chhup gayā
aur chīḳhtī phire hai sahar dhuup chāhiye

ik niiñd hai ki aañkh se lag kar nikal ga.ī
ab raat kā tavīl safar dhuup chāhiye

paanī pe chāhe naqsh banā.e koī 'matīn'
kāġhaz pe maiñ banā.ūñ magar dhuup chāhiye

suraj ko kya pata hai kidhar dhup chahiye
aangan baDa hai apne bhi ghar dhup chahiye

aaine TuT TuT ke bikhre hain chaar-su
DhunDenge aks aks magar dhup chahiye

bhige hue paron se to uDne na paenge
kaTun na un parindon ke par dhup chahiye

hum se darida-pairahan-o-jaan ke waste
yaqut chahiye na guhar dhup chahiye

suraj na jaane kaun si wadi mein chhup gaya
aur chiKHti phire hai sahar dhup chahiye

ek nind hai ki aankh se lag kar nikal gai
ab raat ka tawil safar dhup chahiye

pani pe chahe naqsh banae koi 'matin'
kaghaz pe main banaun magar dhup chahiye
