Pathipaka Mohan
As soon as it turns midday 
Suddenly the tree gets movement 
Even amid the hot sunlight
Spring blooms throughout  
 
In the struggle of life
 All the birds, scattered somewhere 
Leaving their nest, as if planned 
Gathers together at a time
 
Pushing the life cart of two wheels 
Along with it
Stove, tin box, with a bar and a cycle 
The bread sun rises there
With a leaf bowl in left hand 
And bread in the right 
He will be the magic vessel
 To fulfill the hunger 
For the anxieties of hunger 
In exhausted eyes 
In the midst of the city 
A personification of goddess of food 
Bread, curry and a sweet meat 
Pickle, dal, and parottas 
An invincible 
In the city of conjure and deceit 
At the cross roads of sleepless night 
What a number of suns rise everyday
We never feel but
 The real colour of the city we know
When the bread sun didn’t come 
When his cycle stops rolling 
Delhi city gets scattered, 
 India Gate is the witness
 
(To the Delhi Rotiwala who provides food to thousands just for six rupees)
 
రొట్టె సూర్యుడు 
 
మిట్టమధ్యాన్నం అవగానే
ఉన్నట్టు౦డి చెట్టుకు చలనమొస్తు౦ది 
నడి  ఎండలోనూ
నిలువెల్లా వసంతం పూస్తుంది 
 
బతుకు తండ్లాటలో 
గూడునిడిసి ఎక్కడెక్కడికో 
చెల్లాచెదురైన పక్షులన్నీ
కూడబలుక్కున్నట్లు
మూకుమ్మడిగా గుమిగూడతాయి 
 
రెండు చక్రాల బతుకు బండిని 
నెట్టుకు౦టూ వస్తూ 
స్టవ్, రేకు పెట్టె , సలాకీ సైకిల్ తో
అక్కడ
రొట్టె సూర్యుడు ఉదయిస్తాడు 
ఎడమ చేతిలో దొప్ప 
కుడి చేతిలో రొట్టె 
ఆకలి తీర్చే అక్షయ పాత్రౌతాడు 
 
అలసిన కండ్లలోకి 
ఆకలి ఆరాటాలకు 
నగరం నడిబొడ్డున 
సాక్షాత్తూ అన్నపూర్ణాదేవి రూపం 
రోటీ, సబ్జీ, కుల్చా
 
అచార్, దాల్, పరోఠాలతో 
మాయల ఫకీరు నగరంలో 
జగదేకవీరుడూ
నిద్రపోని నగరం కూడళ్ళలో 
ప్రతి రోజూ ఉదయించే సూర్యులె౦దరో...
 
అనుకుంటాం గాని 
నగరం అసలు రంగు 
రొట్టి సూర్యుడు రాని నాడు తెలుస్తు౦ది 
వాని సైకిల్ నడవని నాడు 
ఇండియా గేట్ సాక్షిగా 
ఢిల్లీ నగరం చెల్లా చెదరవుతు౦ది 
 
( ఆరు రూపాయలతో భోజనం పెడుతూ వేలాది మంది ఆకలి తీరుస్తున్న ధిల్లీ సైకిల రోటీ వాలాలను చూసి )
