Kya karun sahib, main randi hun na…

Seedhiyo par baithi,
koi geet gunguna rahi thi,
God mein sir rakh kar leti ek bachchi ko sula rahi thi,
Shayad uski beti thi, ya fir…. Pata nahin

Paas lage ek nalke se,
Paani tap tap kar beh raha tha,
Wahan khada bachcha dabbi awaaz mein,
pass baithi ek aurat se ye keh raha tha,
Maa, kya woh waale uncle mere papa the?”

Upar balcony mein khadi,
Teeno ki teeno muskura rahi thi,
Raat ke musafiron ko dekh seetiya baja rahi thi,
jo dus minute ke liye aate the
Aur sirhaane par kuch 50-100 ke note chod chale jaate the

Koi muskurata hua aata tha,
Koi apne ek naye dost ko saath laata tha,
Koi apni biwi se lad kar wahan pahunch jaata tha,
Koi apne pairon se lipte bachchon ko, “Papa papa” kehta paata tha
Aur fir unki maa, darwazo ki aad se nikal kar aati
Unse maafi maang kehti thi
Kya karun sahib, main randi hun na”

Uss raat woh bhi wahan aaya tha,
Dost ki baaton mein aakar, usne bhi apna mann banaya tha

Tum yahan se chali kyun nahin jaati, khud se ghinn nahin aati”
Woh apne blouse ki dori khol boli,
Kya karun sahib, main randi hun na’

Sang leti woh apni ungliyon se khel hazaaron khel rahi thi.

Mazaa toh bahut aana tha usse,
Par ye saza jaisa kyun lag raha tha,
Pass mein darwaaze ki aad se usse kaun tak raha tha

Maa” woh boli,
Darwaze ke peeche se, jaise ek nanhi pari aayi thi
Uss raat honthon par uske, muskurahat pehli baar woh layi thi

bhala iss narak mein bhi koi itna maasoom kaise reh sakta hai”
sahib, aapko kya lagta hai inn galiyon mein koi khud ko beche bina reh sakta hai,
Chinta na kijiye iska bhi din aayega,
10-15 saal baad aana, tab iss ke haathon aapko mazaa mil jayega.” 
Na jaane kyun woh kaanp gaya,
Aur achanak uth khada hua,
Jaise nazron ke saamne se uske ek saanp gaya,

Saanp hi toh tha woh,
Jisne unn sab ko dass liya tha,
Apne zeher ke changul mein kass liya tha ...

Kya isko kisi school mein dalwa kar,
Ek achcha bhavishya nahin dila sakti?”
Pehli baar usne uski aankhon mein aansu ki ek boond dekhi, jab woh boli
Sahib isse kaun apne school mein jagah dega,
Kaun iss maa ki bachchi ko padhne dega.
Kyunki…
Kya karun sahib, main randi hun na…’

    1. Yes someone has to write, and it's not the dirtiest word. It is made dirty by our outlook towards them.

  10. Nothing much to say, or speechless I'm.

    saab, hamesha hi dikhti hain yahan rangreliyan sabko,
    fir kyun dikh rahe kisi maasum ki athkheliyaan aapko,
    aaye the aap bhi to kuchh rangeen pal ki talash me,
    fir kyun nahi dikhi aapko, padi ek zinda laash paas me?

    har koi aakar dikha jaata hai humen kai sapne yahan,
    par kisi ke sapne pure hon, ye waisi jagah kahan.
    chahte ho ki is masoom ko mile wo jiski tum baat karte ho,
    to dubara wo mat karna jise tum rangeen raat kahte ho...
