महफूज़ / Safe

सरहद पर
एक मरता है
दूसरा मारता है
जज़्बा दोनों का एक है
मादरे वतन की हिफ़ाज़त
पर कसूर दोनों का नहीं इसमें
कसूरवार बैठे हैं कहीं और
बंद कमरे के अंदर
सरहद से दूर,


One dies
another kills
on the border
passion is one
for both of them
protection of motherland,
neither of the two is guilty
real culprits are sitting
somewhere else
inside closed rooms
away from the border,

–Kaushal Kishore
