The Sun and The Moon


Har roz
jahaan samandar aur dharti
aapas mein meilte hain.
Jab na din khatm hota hai
na raat shuru hoti hai
uss waqt
insaanon ki nazron se bachte hue
milte hain
sooraj aur chaand
rozaana
aur karte hain kuchh guft-goo
jo aaj bhi
aam aadmi ki samajh se
koson duur parey hai.

"You know what Moon?
Chadhte sooraj ko sab pranaam karte hain.
Dhalte sooraj ko sab nihaarte hain.
Rockstar kehte hain ye mujhe.
Hazaaron khoobsoorat suryamukhi aur kaliyaan
mud mud ke mujhe taakti hain.
Achha lagta hai.
Lekin jab bhi main
apne fans se milne ki koshish ki,
jhulsa deta hoon sab ko.
Jal jaati hain
mujhe nihaarne waali woh aankhein.
Dekh rahe ho tum
kaise bheed mein bhi
akela sa hoon main?"

"Kya baat keh di sir aapne."
Chaand bola
"Aur ek taraf main hoon.
Jalta hoon aapki fan following se.
Uss din toh do insaanon ko
ghar per bhi bulaaya thaa.
Jaane kyun
waapis aaye hee nahin!

Har raat koshish karta hoon
andhiyaare ka sooraj ban-ne ki.
Lekin jitna zyada main chamakta hoon
utni hee inn logon ki parchhaai
kaali pad jaati hai.
Dekha aapne,
Koi kadr hee nahin hai."

"Ah, samay ho gaya.
Jaao chaand.
Ban jao raat ka sooraj.
Chhat per baitha koi aashique
tumhaari raah dekhta hoga.
Tumhaare aaine mein
apni priya ka aks
dhoondne ke liye."
