Musaafir hoon (Journey of India post-independence)

Musafir hoon haathon ke lakeeron ki
Teen rango ki lakeer, chaar raahon ki

Waqt ke nokili kaaton se kati hoon
Apne beton ke haathon se bati hoon (partition)

Pet ki aag se jal si jaati hoon kabhi (emergency)
Zehreeli hawa se ghoot si jaati kabhi (Bhopal gas)

Mere kadam, roz ek nayi daastaan likhte hai
Mere bachhe iske kuch panne bikherte hain (Babri masjid)

Safar kuch aisa, ki patriyon par hi jhulas jaati hoon (Godhra carnage)
Laash ki buut banker, mandiro mein bas jaati hoon (Akshardhaam attack)

Chalte jaati hoon yunhi, seene par goliyaan khaakar (Mumbai attack)
Woh khush hai mere, khoon ka duguna daam paakar (2G scam)

Mere janamdin par, manaati hoon maatam
Aur mere bachhe gaate hain, Vande Matram
