Title: kaghaz ke kashti
Author: Gulzar

Urdu

mandi se, chowk se, bazar se hokar
laal gali se guzri hai kaghaz ke kashti.
barish ke lawaris pani par baithe bechari kashti,
sehmi sehmi soch rahi hai:
kashti ka koi sahil hota hai,
mera bhi koi sahil to hoga.
ek massoom se bacche ne
bemani ko mani dekar
raddi ke kaghaz par
kaise zulm kiya hai.
