chaunko mat mere dost
ab zamin kisi ka intazar nahin karati.
panch sal ka raha hooonga main,
jab mainne chalati huee relagadi par se
zamin ko door-door tak kee raphtaron men sarakate huye dekhakar
apane javan pita se saval kiya tha
ki pitaji ped pichhe kyon bhag rahe hain?
hamare sath kyon nahin chalate?
javab men mainne dekha tha ki
mere pitaji ki ankhen chamaki thin.
aur ve muskara kar bole the, beta!
ped apani zamin nahin chhodate.
aur tab mere balaman men ek doosara saval uchhala tha
ki ped zamin ko nahin chhodate
ya zamin unhen nahin chhodati?

saval bas saval bana rah gaya tha,
aur main javab paye bagair
khidaki se bahar
tar ke khnbhon ko pas ate aur sarr se pichhe
sarak jate dekhane men doob gaya tha.
tab shayad yah pata nahin tha
ki ped pichhe bhale chhoot jayenge
saval se pichha nahin chhoot payega.
har nayi yatra men apane ko duharayeg.

boodhe hote hote mere pita ne
ek bar,
mujhase aur kaha tha ki
beta, mainne apane jivan bhar
apani zamin nahin chhodi
ho sake to tum bhi n chhodana.
aur is bar chamak meri ankhon men thi
jise mere pita ne dekha tha.

raftar ki us pahali sakshi se lekar
in pachas salon ke bich ki yatraon men
mainne hazaron kilomitar zamin apane pairon
ke niche se sarakate dekhi hai.

hava-pani ke raston se chalate door,
zamin ka daman thamakar daudate hue bhi
apani yatra ke har padav par nayi zamin se hi pada hai pala
zamin jise apani kah sake,
usane koee rasta nahin nikala.
kaise kahoon ki
virase men mainne yatraen hi paya hai
aur pita ka vachan jab-jab mujhe yad aya hai
mainne apani zamin ke moh men saha hai
vapasi yatraon ka dard.
aur dekha
ki apani banh par
likha hua apana nam ajanabi ki tarah
mujhe ghoorane laga,
apani hi nason ka khoon
mujhe hi shakti se dene se inkar karane laga.
tab paya
ki nirrathak gayin ve sari yatraen.
anek bar bikhare hain zamin se jude rahane ke sapane
aur jab bhi vahan se lauta hoon,
hathon men apana choora bator kar lauta hoon!

sunakar chaunko mat mere dost!
ab zamin kisi ka intazar nahin karati.
khud b khud khisak jane ke intazar men rahati hai
zamin ki iyatta ab isi men simat gayi hai
ki kaise vah
pairon ke niche se khisake
zamin ab tikaoo nahin
bikaoo ho gayi hai!
tikaoo rah gayi hai
zamin se judane ki tis
tikaoo rah gayi hain
keval yatraen…
yatraen…
aur yatraen…!
