South Africa


देखो, िकतनी चौडी लग रही है
गांव से शहर जाती यह सडक
याद िदलाती है टीवी पर कार्यक्रम
देश के िवकास की एक झलक
िक वाह
अब तो सपने सच होंगे
अाएगी मुस्कराहट अांखों में चमक
शहर, चका-चौंध मेले की
गांव, बैलमुती धरती की महक
सैणा ने नई बीडी सुलगाते हुए सोचा
धूणी के चहरे पर दूसरी ही कहानी थी
भरी बसों में ना जाने ऊल्टी क्यों अाती है
ये बसें जो रोज़ शहर में नए प्रवासी लाती है
