niraala – a poem by Nagarjun

baal jhabare, drshti painee, phatee lungee nagn tan
kintu antardeep‍ta tha aakaash-sa unmukt man
use marane diya hamane, rah gaya ghutakar pavan
ab bhale hee yaad mein karate rahen sau-sau havan!

ksheenabal gajaraaj avaheli‍ta raha jag-bhaar ban
chhaanh tak se sahamate the shrngaalon ke praan-man
nahin angeekaar tha tap-tej ko nakalee naman
kar diya hai rog ne kya khoob bhav-baadha shaman!

raakh ko dooshit karenge dhongiyon ke ashrukan
asthi-shesh-juloos ka hoga udhar philmeekaran
shaada ke vaksh par khur-se pade lakshmee-charan
shankhadhvani mein smaarakon ke dravy ka hai apaharan!

rahe tandra mein nimeelit indr ke sau-sau nayan
karen shaasan ke mahaaprabhu ksheerasaagar mein shayan
raajaneetik akad mein jad hee raha sansad-bhavan
neharoo ko kya hua, mukh se na phoota vachan?

kshepakon kee baadh aaee, ro rahe hain ratn kan
deh baakee nahin hai to praan mein honge na vran?
timir mein ravi kho gaya, din lupt hai, besudh gagan
bhaaratee sir peetatee hai, lut gaya hai praanadhan!
