Just because….

….when the rains come down in nostalgic torrents during eventide, and the sweet smell permeates your emotions, you feel...
nahin nigah mein manzil to justajoo hi sahi,
nahin wisaal mayassar to aarzoo hi sahi...................................

The picture's perfect!

I don't understand a word of what you've written in the end.

What does that mean?

Man, your Hindi is definitely better than mine.

hey funki vinny, all i can say is faiz baba ki jai!
and as for the meaning of the couplet, it goes something like...
(in my broken angrezi)
"...
If the destination is unseen, unknown, I will reconcile myself questing for it if nothing else,

If union with you is unattainable, then I will live with myself yearning for it, if nothing else..."

I came across your site when trying to find the translation for this Faiz ghazal. Maybe you can direct me to where I can find the complete ghazal and translation?
BTW great blog! I enjoyed browsing it!
