Tallu

(This was written for our friend Deepak Talesra on occasion of his 40th b’day)
Ek tha ladka bhola bhala naam tha uska Tallu
Man to uska ujjwal tha par tan se tha woh kallu
Roj woh puja karta tha or roj woh karta yoga
Khud hi socho is ladke ka aage haal kya hoga
Yauvan ke chand barson mein jab ritu savan ki aayee
Mitr varg ne ladki chedi isne kari padhai
Mehnat karne se ghabrana isko na tha aata
Tan man dhan se jo shram karta fal meetha hi pata
Apni himmat or mehanat ka shrey isne bhi paya
IIT Entrance mein banda achchi rank le aaya
Bandh ke bori bistar pustak Tallu pahoncha college
Rang birangi duniya dilli, iska aim tha knowledge
Odh ke gila kapda sar par Tallu ne dhuni ramayi
Par computer vigyan ki vani iski samajh na aayi
Kreeda kram ka pahar hua to khela Tallu tennis
Man bhaya ye khel to usko, thi is game mein service
Gurukul aashram khatam hua gatbandhan ka samay aaya
Kripyalu ishwar ne Deepak Jyoti ka pair banaya
Pehli pehli raat dono ne paavan preet ko paya
Jyoti ka sar uncha tha Deepak simta sharmaya
US firm mein job mila to india se li vidayi
Aa pahoncha Edison nagri ek duniya pyari basai
Khil uttha yeh ghar angna, baji khushiyon ki shehnai
Deepak Jyoti jeevan mein Deepti or Divya aayi
Kehat “daddu” kaviray ki pyara dist ye mera
Chalis ka hua aaj, jeevan ka sanjh savera
Is jeevan mein aage bhi tu har sukh paye
Prem pratishtha pyare deepak teri badhti jaye.
