Deadpan Street

Surya muskuraa rahe hain

his smirke is leading the slumdogs

of Bombays hot choles astray.

Look, they are holding hopefully

melting sunrays in their hands.

Aur to Indra ro rahe hain

his tears are washing the sorrow

of Mumbais galis away.

See, nacked feet are dancing

blissfully the kerbstone dance.

 Between a smile and a sigh lies a Deadpan Street.
