Tumhaara naam
Chhala ban gaya hai jeebh par
Dukhta hai
Jab bhi kuchh kehti hoon..

Emotions and sentiments are so universal and Hindi has its fair share of gems. I have been trying hard to read Tagore even though my Bengali is miserable. But it's worth all my effort :-)
Nice one. Is it an original?

Hi Wriju:
You are right there, Hindi does have its gems.. as does every other language and dialect... imagine a gem not being just valued bcs it has gone "out of fashion". On a different note, i completely love your posts.

Hi Tell me no more:
yes, you are right there.. we are not connected by faces, but by the way we think.. it is easier to connect in Cyberia, probably bcs here we don't carry the burden of our roles and images.. we can just be ourselves.. and guess what, if you take away my name, my age, gender, nationality and mother tongue from me... what remains, per force, is the person that i am.. which is what you c on this blog :-)
