Maa baap ne nam aankhon se di thi mujhe parvaaz, Aaj bhi unki fikr bargaraar hai.

Second class sleeper pe aaya tha is sheher mein doston ke saath, Aaj bhi usi safar ka khumaar hai.

Uth kar gira, gir kar utha. Chala. Udaa. Aaj unhi thokaron ki khaatir mere hag mein rashtriya puraskaar hai," he wrote.
