Amrita Pritam poetry..

Hum ne aaj ye duniya bechi,
Aur ek deen kharid ke laaye,
Baat kufr ki ki hai hum ne..

Ambar ki ek paak suraahi
badal ka ik jaam utha kar
Ghoont chandni pi hai hum ne
baat kufr ki ki hai humne..
**************
Meri aag mujhe mubarak,
Ki aaj suraj mere paas aaya,
Aur ek koyla maang kar us ne,
Apni aag sulgayi hai...
**************
Tinkon ki meri jhondpri(hut),
Koi aasan kahaan bichhaoon,
ki teri yaad ki chingaari,
Mehmaan ban kar aayi hai..
******************

Jaane khuda ki raaton ko kya hua,
Vo andhere mein daud-ti aur bhaagti
neend ka jugnu pakadne lagi...

Sunaar ne dil ki angoothi tarash di
Aur meri takdeer us mein
Dard ka moti jadne lagi..

Aur jab duniya ne sooli gaad di,
to har mansoor ki ankhein
Apna mukkaddar padne lagi..
***************

Sooraj to dwar par aa gaya,
lekin kisi kiran ne uth kar
us ka swagat nahi kiya..
********************

I love poetry and thats the reason I chose to study literature but all I read or was exposed to was English, until I came across Amrita Pritam's works. I have now become a fan of hindi poetry too as I can relate to the words that she very carefully chooses; very ordinary yet vey effective, unlike the heavy hindi poetry that I read in school. Any suggestions about more such writers....

she was awesum. Kuch kehti h unki likhi bate aj b hme,shayad jiski kalpna kar pana b mushkil tha.,kuch esa jo dharti k kan kan, rom rom ko ehsas dilata h k wo thi, wo h , wo rahengi. Sada is dharti par zinda rahengi, apne us roop me jise log apni yaadon me bsa lete h. Unki poems ki wajha se.

amrita pritm ke hi shbdo me
"koi bat hai jo chhlk aai hai
askhro ke ghde aunde kr do
aur apni khamoshi ko aasmanpine do"
