mothertongue / मातृभाषा

हिन्दी की कविता पढ़ते हुए जब
एक अंजाना शब्द कौंधा मेरे आगे
मैंने ख़ुद से अंग्रेजी में पुछा
"व्हाट इज दिस"
और हंस पड़ा मन ही मन
अपनी बेशर्मी पर


when reading a Hindi poem
an unknown word flashed across my eyes
i asked myself, in English
"what is this"
and chuckled silently
on this impertinence of mine
