Kaghaz-kalam

Written sometime in November, this now comes to the blog 🙂

kaghaz hai, kalam hai,
shayari ko mufeed, ye aalam hai.
zehen me ho jab chhaya kohra
raah dhoondhta hai khayalo ka karwaan
kalam ke charaagh se,
roshan housle.
tay karte hain;
ilm ke faaslein.
zindagi ki manzil – jhilmilaati
intezar kare hain  – ithlaati
gubar bhi nahin, naa hai kohra,
mustahkam raftar se, chal raha hai karwaan,
kalam se kadam milakar, chal raha hai karwaan.
kaghaz hai, kalam hai,
shayari ko mufeed, ye aalam hai…
