Kya aisa hi tha tumhara bachpan…

Pani mein kaagaz ke jahaaz chalate thhey hum..

‘Ball pen’ ki ink khatam ho jaane per, ‘refill’ dalwaatey thhey hum

Exam mein cardboard le jaane ke liye naya ‘polybag’ dhundwaate thhey hum..

TV mein signal week hone per, kisi bhaiya ko ‘antenna’ per chadhwaatey thhey hum..

Aur neeche se “aa gaya” “chala gaya” chillatey thhey hum

Rishtedaro ki shadiyo mein ek hafta pehle pahuch jaatey they hum..

Nayi movies ke ‘video cassettes’ kiraye per laatey thhey hum

DD1 per Sunday ke ek cartoon show ko taras jaatey thhhey hum

Barish mein hum bheege na to kya thha mazzaa

Garmi mein bhi rickshaw ya cycle per school se aatey thhey hum

Ghar aate hi maa ke haath ka khana kha, cooler wale room mein so jaatey thhey hum

Aur sham ko ek saans mein milk ka glass gatak kar, khelne bhaag jaatey thhey hum

Homework complete kare bina neend hi na aati thhi,

Agle din ke timetable se bag set karke, maa lori sunati thhi.

Maa ko galey se laga ke neend hi kuch alag aati thhi

Arrey baba, hamare bachpan ki to baat hi nirali thhi!!
