chaay-chakram – a poem by Kaka Hathrasi

ekahi saadhe sab sadhe, sab saadhe sab jaay.
doodh, dahee, phal, ann, jal chhod peejie chaay.
chhod peejie chaay, amrt beesaveen sadee ka.
jag-prasiddh jaise gangaajal gang nadee ka.
kah ‘kaaka’, in upadeshon ka arth jaanie.
bina chaay ke maanav-jeevan vyarth maanie.

kavita likhane ke lie ‘mood’ nahin ban paay.
ek saans mein peejie chaar-paanch kap chaay.
chaar-paanch kap chaay, agar rah jae adhooree.
itane hee lo aur, ho gaee kavita pooree.
kah ‘kaaka’ kavi, khandakaavy ko pandrah pyaala,
pachapan kap mein mahaakaavy hamane likh daala.

pletaform par yaatree, paanee ko chillaay.
paaneevaala hai nahin, chaay piyo jee chaay.
chaay piyo jee chaay, hilaakar bola daadhee-
paise leu nikaal, chhoot jaegee gaadee.
‘kaaka’ peekar chaay, virodhee dal ka neta,
dhuaandhaar vyaakhyaan sabha-sansad mein deta.

lakshman ke shakti lagee, vikal hue bhagavaan.
sanjeevanee lene gae, pavan-putr hanumaan.
pavan-putr hanumaan, aa gae lekar bootee.
sevan karake lakhanalaal kee nidra tootee.
kah ‘kaaka’ kavi, jab kholee akkl kee khattee.
samajh gae ham, isee chaay kee theen kuchh pattee.

gaayak, vaadak, lekcharar, nat, nartak au’ bhaat.
sabhee chaay ke bhakt hain, dhobee, telee, jaat.
dhobee, telee, jaat, braahman, baniya, taoo.
maoo khaany afeem, chaay peete chaoo.
kah ‘kaaka’, peechhe peete hain baaboo-laala.
pahile khud pee leta, chaay banaanevaala.
