chauthee peedhee ka pratinidhi

yahaan, gadhavaal mein
kotadvaar-paudee vaalee sadak par
oopar chakkaradaar mod ke nikat

makee ke mote tikkad ko
satrshn nazaron se dekhata rahega abhee
is chaaloo maarg par
gittiyaan bichhaane vaalee mazadoorin maa
abhee ek baje aaegee
paseene se lathapath
nikatavartee jharane mein
haath-munh dhoegee
jooda baandhegee phir se

aur tab
shishu ko choomakar
paas baitha legee
makee ke tikkad se tanik-sa
todakar
bachche ke munh mein daalegee

use god mein bharakar
usakee aankhon mein jhaankegee
putaliyon ke andar
apanee parachhaeen dekhegee
poochhegee munna se:
meree putaliyon mein dekh to, kya hai.

vo hansane lagega…
maa kee gardan ko baanhon mein lega

tab, un kshanon mein
shishu kee svachchhand putaliyon mein
bas, maan hee pratibimbit rahegee…

do-chaar palon ke lie
saamane vaala tikkad
yon hee dhara rahega…
haree mirch aur namak vaalee chatanee
alag hee dharee hogee
chauthee peedhee ka hamaara vo pratinidhi
bachhendreepaal ka bhateeja hai!

(5 maee 1985)
