रोटी

Updated: May 17

By रमन भारतीय / Raman Bhartiya

मेरे पास जेब थी

जेब में पैसे नहीं थे,


मेरे पास सिर था

सिर पर छत नहीं थी,


मेरे पास आँखें थी

आँखों में आंसू नहीं थे,


मेरे पास वर्तमान था

पर भविष्य नहीं था,

मेरे पास थी 

बस कुछ रोटियाँ,

यह रोटियाँ पटरी से उठाओ

और

हुक्मरानों की थाली में परोस दो।


(औरंगाबाद रेल हादसे में हुई 16 मज़दूरों की मृत्यु पर)




ENGLISH TRANSLATION


I had pocket But there was no money, I had a head But there was no roof over it, I had eyes But there were no tears, I had a present But there was no future, I had Just few Rotis,

Pick them up from the Tracks, And Serve in the plate of Rulers. (On the death of 16 workers in the Aurangabad railway accident)
