जहाँ हर चीज है प्यारी
सभी चाहत के पुजारी
प्यारी जिसकी ज़बां
वही है मेरा हिन्दुस्तां

जहाँ ग़ालिब की ग़ज़ल है
वो प्यारा ताज महल है
प्यार का एक निशां
वही है मेरा हिन्दुस्तां

जहाँ फूलों का बिस्तर है
जहाँ अम्बर की चादर है
नजर तक फैला सागर है
सुहाना हर इक मंजर है
वो झरने और हवाएँ,
सभी मिल जुल कर गायें
प्यार का गीत जहां
वही है मेरा हिन्दुस्तां

जहां सूरज की थाली है
जहां चंदा की प्याली है
फिजा भी क्या दिलवाली है
कभी होली तो दिवाली है
वो बिंदिया चुनरी पायल
वो साडी मेहंदी काजल
रंगीला है समां
वही है मेरा हिन्दुस्तां

कही पे नदियाँ बलखाएं
कहीं पे पंछी इतरायें
बसंती झूले लहराएं
जहां अन्गिन्त हैं भाषाएं
सुबह जैसे ही चमकी
बजी मंदिर में घंटी
और मस्जिद में अजां
वही है मेरा हिन्दुस्तां

कहीं गलियों में भंगड़ा है
कही ठेले में रगडा है
हजारों किस्में आमों की
ये चौसा तो वो लंगडा है
लो फिर स्वतंत्र दिवस आया
तिरंगा सबने लहराया
लेकर फिरे यहाँ-वहां
वहीँ है मेरा हिन्दुस्तां :D

  61. कोई तुमसे पूछे कौन हूँ मैं ,
    तुम कह देना कोई ख़ास नहीं .
    एक दोस्त है कच्चा पक्का सा ,
    एक झूठ है आधा सच्चा सा .
    जज़्बात को ढके एक पर्दा बस ,
    एक बहाना है अच्छा अच्छा सा .
    जीवन का एक ऐसा साथी है ,
    जो दूर हो के पास नहीं .
    कोई तुमसे पूछे कौन हूँ मैं ,
    तुम कह देना कोई ख़ास नहीं .
    हवा का एक सुहाना झोंका है ,
    कभी नाज़ुक तो कभी तुफानो सा .
    शक्ल देख कर जो नज़रें झुका ले ,
    कभी अपना तो कभी बेगानों सा .
    जिंदगी का एक ऐसा हमसफ़र ,
    जो समंदर है , पर दिल को प्यास नहीं .
    कोई तुमसे पूछे कौन हूँ मैं ,
    तुम कह देना कोई ख़ास नहीं .
    एक साथी जो अनकही कुछ बातें कह जाता है ,
    यादों में जिसका एक धुंधला चेहरा रह जाता है .
    यूँ तो उसके न होने का कुछ गम नहीं ,
    पर कभी – कभी आँखों से आंसू बन के बह जाता है .
    यूँ रहता तो मेरे तसव्वुर में है ,
    पर इन आँखों को उसकी तलाश नहीं .
    कोई तुमसे पूछे कौन हूँ मैं ,
    तुम कह देना कोई ख़ास नहीं
    ….. आपका एक दोस्त
