RoTiyaa.N - Poem by Nazeer Akbarabadi

jab aadamii ke peT me.n aatii hai.n roTiyaa.N
phuulii nahii.n badan me.n samaaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N
aa.Nkhe.n parii_ruKho.n se la.Daatii hai.n roTiyaa.N
siine uupar bhii haath chalaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

jitane maze hai.n sab ye dikhaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

roTii se jis kaa naak talak peT hai bharaa
karataa phire hai kyaa vo uchhal kuud jaa ba jaa
diivaar phaa.Nd kar ko_ii koThaa uchhal gayaa
ThaaThTha ha.Nsii sharaab sanam saaqii is sivaa

sau sau tarah kii dhuum machaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

jis jaa pe haa.NDii chuulhaa tavaa aur tanuur hai
Khaaliq ke qudarato.n kaa usii jaa zahuur hai
chuulhe ke aage aa.Nch jo jalatii hazuur hai
jitane hai.n nuur sab me.n yahii Khaas nuur hai

is nuur ke sabab nazar aatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

aave tave tanuur kaa jis jaa zabaa.N pe naam
yaa chakkii chuulhe kaa jahaa.N gul_zaar ho tamaam
vaa.N sar jhukaa ke kiijiye DanDavat aur salaam
is vaaste ke Khaas ye roTii ke hai.n muqaam

pahale inhii.n makaano.n me.n aatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

in roTiyo.n ke nuur se sab dil hai.n puur puur
aaTaa nahii.n hai chhalanii se chhan chhan gire hai nuur
pe.Daa har ek us kaa hai barfii-o-motii chuur
har_giz kisii tarah na bujhe peT kaa tanuur

is aag ko magar ye bujhaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

puuchhaa kisii ne ye kisii kaamil faqiir se
ye mehr-o-maah haq ne banaaye hai.n kaahe ke
vo sun ke bolaa baabaa Khudaa tujh ko Khair de
ham to na chaa.Nd samajhe na suuraj hai.n jaanate

baabaa hame.n to ye nazar aatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

phir puuchhaa us ne kahiye ye hai dil kaa nuur kyaa
is ke mushaahide me.n hai khulataa zahuur kyaa
vo bolaa sun ke teraa gayaa hai sha_uur kyaa
kashf-ul-quluub aur ye kashf-ul-qubuur kyaa

jitane hai.n kashf sab ye dikhaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

roTii jab aa_ii peT me.n sau qand ghul gaye
gul_zaar phuule aa.Nkho.n me.n aur aish tul gaye
do tar nivaale peT me.n jab aa ke dhul gaye
chaudaa tabaq ke jitane the sab bhed khul gaye

ye kashf ye kamaal dikhaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

roTii na peT me.n ho to phir kuchh jatan na ho
mele kii sair Khvaahish-e-baaG-o-chaman na ho
bhuuke Gariib dil kii Khudaa se lagan na ho
sach hai kahaa kisii ne ke bhuuke bhajan na ho

allaah kii bhii yaad dilaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

ab jin ke aage maal_puye bhar ke thaal hai.n
puurii bhagat unhii.n kii vo saahab ke laal hai.n
aur jin ke aage rauGanii aur shiir_maal hai
aarif vohii hai.n aur vohii saahab kamaal hai.n

pakii pakaa_ii ab jinhe.n aatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

kapa.De kisii ke laal hai.n roTii ke vaaste
lambe kisii ke baal hai.n roTii ke vaaste
baa.Ndhe ko_ii rumaal hai rotii ke vaaste
sab kashf aur kamaal hai.n rotii ke vaaste

jitane hai.n ruup sab ye dikhaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

roTii se naache piyaadaa qavaayad dikhaa dikhaa
asavaar naache gho.De ko kaavaa lagaa lagaa
ghungharuu ko baa.Ndhe paik bhii phirataa hai naachataa
aur is ke sivaa Gaur se dekho to jaa ba jaa

sau sau tarah ke naach dikhaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

duniyaa me.n ab badii na kahii.n aur niko_ii hai
na dushmanii va dostii na tund kho_ii hai
ko_ii kisii kaa aur kisii kaa na ko_ii hai
sab ko_ii hai usii kaa ke jis haath Do_ii hai

naukar nafar Gulaam banaatii hai.n roTiyaa.N

roTii kaa ab azal se hamaaraa to hai Khamiir
ruukhii bhii roTii haq me.n hamaare hai shahad-o-shiir
yaa patalii hove moTii Khamiirii ho yaa katiir
gehuu.N ju_aar baajare kii jaisii ho 'Nazeer'

ham ko sab tarah kii Khush aatii hai.n roTiyaa.N
