Nimmo

Gaanv ki galiyan poochh rahi hain

Kahan rahe tum itne din

Nimmo ki to shaadi ho gayi

Haar gayi thi din gin gin

Bahut der tak rasta dekha

Gaanv ko khud pe hansta dekha

Usey yakin tha lautoge tum

Par tum ho gaye shehar mein he gum

Toot gayi phir vo bechari

Intzaar mein haari haari

Khud se khud hi gayi vo chhin

Gaanv ki galiyan poochh rahi hain

Kahan rahe tum itne din…

Ek mod se mila tha kal main

Uske paas ruka ik pal main

Poochha kaise ho tum bhai

Kaise itne saal bitai

Mod budha sa hua pada tha

Lekin phir bhi wahin khada tha

Mujhko vo pehchaan na paaya

Maine apna naam bataiya

Mod khushi se jhoom utha tab

Padha hai tere baare mein sab

Ho gaye ho tum bade aadmi

Insan ho ya phal ho mausami

Ek saal mein ek he phera

Gaanv mein bhi ik ghar hai tera

Nimmo ye bola karti thi

Roz he jeeti thi marti thi

Chali gayi vo ab to lekin

Mod bhi mujhse poochh raha hai

Kahan rahe tum itne din…

Nimmo gaanv ki sadak thi kachchi

Jisko mere bin rona he tha

Ik din pakka hona he tha…

Achha hua ki pakki ho gayi

Gaanv mein zara tarakki ho gayi

Haan par meri nimmo kho gayi…

निम्मो

गाँव की गलियां पूछ रही हैं

कहाँ रहे तुम इतने दिन

निम्मो की तो शादी हो गयी

हार गयी थी दिन गिन गिन…

बहुत देर तक रस्ता देखा

गाँव को खुद पे हँसता देखा

उसे यकीं था लौटोगे तुम

पर तुम हो गए शहर में ही गुम

टूट गयी फिर वो बेचारी

इंतज़ार में हारी हारी

खुद से खुद ही गयी वो छिन

गाँव की गलियां पूछ रही हैं

कहाँ रहे तुम इतने दिन…

एक मोड़ से मिला था कल मैं

उसके पास रुका इक पल मैं

पूछा कैसे हो तुम भाई

कैसे इतने साल बिताई

मोड़ बुढा सा हुआ पड़ा था

लेकिन फिर भी वहीँ खड़ा था

मुझको वो पहचान न पाया

मैंने अपना नाम बताया

मोड़ ख़ुशी से झूम उठा तब

पढ़ा है तेरे बारे में सब

हो गए हो तुम बड़े आदमी

इन्सां हो या फल हो मौसमी

एक साल में एक ही फेरा

गाँव में भी इक घर है तेरा

निम्मो ये बोला करती थी

रोज़ ही जीती थी मरती थी

चली गयी वो अब तो लेकिन

मोड़ भी मुझसे पूछ रहा है

कहाँ रहे तुम इतने दिन…

निम्मो गाँव की सड़क थी कच्ची

जिसको मेरे बिन रोना ही था

इक दिन पक्का होना ही था…

अच्छा हुआ की पक्की हो गयी

गाँव में चलो तरक्की हो गयी

हाँ पर मेरी निम्मो खो गयी…

    Wah kya kahne… Yahan us vyakti ki aisi manosthiti ka varnan hai, jo gaon se shehar mein aakar wahin ka hi hokar rah gaya hai… Gaon bhar use yaad karta hai…Par us par talleenta ka aisa mukhauta chadha hai ki woh apna pichla sab kuchch bhool gaya hai…Is antral mein yahan gaon ki dasha pehle se behtar ho gayi hai or Nimmo jo ke vyakti vishes ki gaon ki ekmatr kadi thi, wo gum ho gayi hai…

    In shabdon mein gaon ki tarakki ke sath sath apnon ke kahin kho jane ka gham bhi shamil hai… Umda shayari…:-)

    It’s so beautiful and visual. Has inspired me to go back to places and people I had made promises to a long long time ago….

    It’s very nostalgic and beautiful. It has taken me back to punjab where I had met few people

    It’s very nostalgic and beautiful. It has taken me back to punjab where I had met few people but really have no idea where they are now and how to meet them.
