chadte din ki.
Kal bhi

Kal bhi

kal bhi.

Boond os ki

Kal bhi
aaj bhi
kal bhi.

Billy,

I finally am able to "get it", or so I think ! The second stanza : I am still struggling with it. Sorry - I am not good in reading poems ! Tamil and Enlish - I am fine ! hindi I struggle a lot !

But, I guess I still can appreciate this one ! THe spring and monsoons are round the corner ! Dont worry ! its a artificial maru bhoomi ! Made out of circusmtances !
