इब्‍नबतूता बगल में जूता – गुलजार

Introduction: See more

Ibn Battuta (AD 1304 to 1368) was a Moroccan Muslim scholar and traveler who is known for the account of his travels and excursions. His journeys lasted for a period of nearly thirty years and covered almost the entirety of the known Islamic world and beyond. He came to India when Delhi was ruled by Sultan Muhammad bin Tughluq who appointed Ibn Battuta as a Qazi. Later Tugluq later sent him as ambassador to China. Ibn Battuta left extensive accounts of his travels that make very interesting reading. Decades ago, Sarweshwar Dayal Saxena wrote a bal-kavita on Ibn Battuta. Shoes were prominent in the poem as Joota rhymes so well with Battuta. In a recent song written by Gulzar for the movie Ishqiya Ibn Battuta and Joota again figured prominently resulting in some controversy about the credit of the song. Here both versions are being presented for the readers. Rajiv Krishna Saxena

इब्‍नबतूता
बगल में जूता
पहने तो करता है जुर्म
उड़ उड़ आवे, दाना चुगे
उड़ जावे चिड़िया फुर्र

अगले मोड़ पर मौत खड़ी है
अरे मरने की भी क्‍या जल्‍दी है
हार्न बजा कर आ बगिया में
दुर्घटना से देर भली है

दोनों तरफ से बजती है यह
आए हाए जिंदगी क्‍या ढोलक है
हार्न बजा कर आ बगिया में
अरे थोड़ा आगे गतिरोधक है

अरे चल चल उड़ जा फुर्र फुर्र

इब्‍नबतूता,
बगल में जूता
पहने तो करता है जुर्म
उड़ उड़ आवे, दाना चुगे
उड़ जावे चिड़िया फुर्र

∼ गुलजार
