An Indian Civilizational Perspective

He never saw…

Nice couplet in Hindi/Urdu:

Usne dekha hi nahi apni hatheli ko kabhi…
Usme dhundhali si kahi meri bhi lakeer to thi..

(He never looked at his own hand; there was a fading line on it for me in there!)

Man, its so tough to translate Urdu or Hindi poetry into English that it really makes mince-meat of the entire emotion. Meanwhile all those who understand Hindi/Urdu.. enjoy the couplet!!
