हमचेहरों के दरमियां
रोज़ कुछ नये
हमचेहरे दिखते
लम्बे फुटपाथ के किनारे
रीअर-व्यू मिरर में हमारे
रेल्वे-स्टेशन की दीवार के सहारे

हलक पर रोज़ कुछ आवाज़ें टूटीं
एक शोर हुआ, और हुआ भी नही...


  1. For HJ:


    Humchehron ke darmiyaan
    Roz kuchh naye
    Humchehre dikhte
    Lambe footpath ke kinaare
    Rear-view mirror mein humare
    Railway station ki deewaar ke sahaare

    Halak par roz kuchh aawaazein tooteen
    Ek shor hua, aur hua bhi nahi...

  2. Clever and very moving.

    Translation would be appreciated.

  3. Haha...I just posted a request only to find my request had been fulfilled already!

    It really is heart wrenching to see the plight of the homeless. It is a sobering thought to even imagine what these people go through. Right now, amid the mayhem of the floods we have 25 Million homeless people. The stories that come out on a day to day basis are shocking and extremely saddening.
