Kaun Si Galti Usne Kari Thi

Aaj jab wo siskiyon se ghiri thi
apne hi ghar mein beghar si padi thi
lahoo ki boond boond sadak kinare beh rahi thi
sadak kinare wo damini jab dam tod rahi thi
tab bhi tehi poochh rahii thi
aaakhir kaun si galti usne kari thi
kis baat ki saza use mili thi

durgaa poojan jahaan pramukh tyohaar hua
wahin naa jane kitni damini ka daaman taar taar hua
kahin din dahare to kahin sare bazaar hua
samman ek naari ka bas khilwaad hua
haan wahi jahaan durga poojan ek pramukh tyohaar hua

shayad is apraadh ki taakat itni naa badi hoti
dekhkar bhi ankhein humne agar band na kari hoti
chup naa rehkar aawaz apni pehle hi buland kari hoti
to shayad jassicca damini aaj humare beech hoti

har damini ki cheekh yahi poochh rahi thi
aakhir kya galti usne kari thi
kyun use ye saza bhugatni padi thi..?
jate jate bas 1 guzarish kar rahi thi

mere sath jo hua na bhoolna na bhulane dena
phir kisi maa se uski beti na chhinne dena
phir kisi papa ki ladli ko ye naa bhugatne dena
kisi aur ko damini na banne dena...
der se hi sahi jali hai aag jo virodh ki bas use mat bujhne dena..

sahe na koi bhi jo mujhpar beeti thi
iss baar kyun burai achchhai se jeeti thi
aakhir kya galti maine kari thi
kis baat ki saza mujhe mili thi..?

truely this one is mysterious. the poet at one stage seem sarcastic on other gloomy. rhyme is good.
The feeling of the tragedy of passionate love is beautifully and movingly expressed in this poem by the great romantic Poet Byron!
