Half Moon!


न जाने क्यों,

मुझे उस ढलती शाम के

अधूरे चाँद से अलग ही प्यार है.



I brace a different kind of love for that half moon,

advancing the evening.


PS:I know I could have never come up with an English translation, sounding almost the same as the Hindi version; still worth a try may be?

A woman questioning almost everything, trying to find answers through her's and your words. I am on an unending quest, walking the paths of unknown. I am walking and walking, may be too slow, but I am doing it. I am happy as long as I do not stop. I will be content to fall, to fly, to swim, to drown, only never to stop.

  1. Wah!! Stunning pic!! And mesmerising lines! I loved the hindi lines and skipped the english one as that would have diluted the taste! See you write so well in hindi too!! Should more!!

    1. Thanks, I know you are being too generous with your appreciation here.
      I do write in Hindi, not so much, but every once in a while, and it remains hidden in a journal, or a hidden folder on my screen. Only recently have I posted a couple or two posts here.

Your perception holds importance for me.
