Tehzeeb

Station ki seediyon par baitha tha intezaar main
Ki baarish tham jaye to main ghar ko chalu’n
Kuch door baarish se bach kar ek bacha baitha tha
Thand se joonjh raha tha ek patli si chadar aud kar
Kuch aankhon mein noor tha uski
kuch alag andaaz tha usme zaroor
Woh farsh par lakeerein kheench raha tha
Jaise tasveer bana raha ho koi
Main uth kar ja uske peeche khada hua
Dheeray dheeray kai log aa kar dekhne lage usse
Chand lamhon mein nayab sa sketch bana diya usne
Hairan thay sab uska hunar dekh kar

Ek aurat ne kuch bache hue biscuit khane ko de diye
Ek shaks ne 100 ka note nikal kar uske haath mein rakh diya
Note dekh kar woh zara sehem gaya
Fir zara muskuraya, pairon ko us shaks ke haath lagaya
Apni shawl kaandhey pe audi aur note waapis thama diya
chal pada wahan se baarish mein bheegte hue
aur jaate jaate woh mujhe tehzeeb sikha gaya


"sehma sa rehta hai, sharaarat nahin karta,
muflisi ne bache bache ko tehzeeb sikha di"
