पच्चीस का सिक्का

(जून के पहले)
पच्चीस के नन्हे सिक्कों ले हम पेंसिल खरीदने जो आये
दुकानदार बोला बेटा कितने दिन से गंगा नहीं नहाए!

(जून के बाद)
सवा रुपल्ली का परसाद लेकर मंदिर पहुंचे
प्रभुजी बोले, बेटा उल्लू बनाने को हम ही नज़र आये?

भगवन तुम ही करो तनिक उपाय
पचीस पैसे में देखो कम्पट भी न आये!

पंडित बोला यूं मिलता नहीं उपाय
सवा के आगे सौ लगाओ तो मज़ा आये

Hazrat-e-Kalmadi

Daagh Dehelvi was a brilliant Urdu poet just after the Mughal era. He had this anecdotal verse to his credit. When invited to a British party the venue was changed at the last moment he kept sitting there and quoted:

Hazrat-e-Daagh jahaan baithe wahaan baith gaye
Wo koi aur honge teri mehfil se ubharne wale

Well I don’t recall this exact verse or the anecdote and Google has not been much of help either. But you do get to appreciate it. In a different context too. Have a look:
