भूख और भगवान

वो आये
अपने हाथों में बड़ी बड़ी
थैलियाँ लेकर
कुछ में कपड़े थे
कुछ में खाना था
कुछ में किताबें थीं
हम भूखे थे
हम नंगे थे

हम इंसान थे
हमसे कहा ‘बदल’ लो अपना भगवान
और
हमने ‘बदल’ लिया
आखिर था तो मैं आदमी ही ना
मेरे बच्चों की भूख से बड़ा
मेरा भगवान नहीं हो सकता

(Hunger and God

They came
With big bags
In their hands
Some had clothes
Some had food
Some had books
We were hungry
We were naked
We were human
They asked us to switch our Gods
We switched our Gods
After all I was a human
And my God can not be more important
Than my children’s hunger)
