"Nazar Lagi hai humein!"

Night Photography At Varanasi
Heart of Kashmir : Pahalgam..
I left pahalgam teary eyed with these lyrics in my heart.. " Iss tarah Aashiqui ka asar chodd jaaungaa, tere chehre pe apni nazar chodd jaungaa" #BEWARE:- There will be many photographers roaming around you , hire them , but do negotiate and don't let them exploit you and don't accept any photographs in CD , get them transferred to ur cell instead....

So here go those lines (from this song) " Dilon mein tum apni Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho Toh zinda ho tum (If you carry impatience in your heart then you are alive) Nazar mein khwabon ki Bijliyan leke chal rahe ho Toh zinda ho tum (If you carry dreams in your eyes then you are alive) Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise Aazad rehno sikho (Learn to live like the free waves of wind) Tum ek dariya ke jaise Lehron mein behna sikho (Learn to flow like the sea does as waves) Har ek lamhe se tum milo Khole apni bhaayein (Receive every moment in life with open arms) Har ek pal ek naya samha Dekhen yeh nigahaein (Every moment is a new beginning seeing with your eyes) Jo apni aankhon mein Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho (If you carry surprise in your eyes then you are alive) Toh zinda ho tum Dilon mein tum apni Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho Toh zinda ho tum" (If you carry impatience in your heart then you are alive")...
