Jaane woh kaise log the jinke pyar ko pyar mila
Hum ne toh jab kaliyan maange kaaton ka haar mila
Bichad gaya har saathi dekar pal do pal ka saath
Kisko hai phursat jo thaame deewane ka haath
Humko toh apna saaya aksar bezaar mila
Jaane woh kaise log the jinke pyar ko pyar mila

Not quite sure why I posted this here.
This song has been in my head for the past couple of days…one of my all-time favourites…such lyrics that I almost feel like crying everytime I hear it.

Amazing how just a few lines that some person that you've never met in your life wrote can sometimes mean so much to you. That’s why I love words so much. They talk about a picture being worth a thousand words but nothing will ever beat words for me.

By the way speaking of something touching, saw a clip on youtube that brought tears to my eyes. Such a simple concept, yet it really gets to you. A must watch:

A lot of lessons that we could learn from that kiwi. Life isn't about what you cant do but what you can. If only we all spent less time thinking about what we don’t have and go about believing that things will get better. Reminds me of yet another of my favourite songs. A complete mood change from the previous song…this one, while sad is quite uplifting (a bit like the kiwi video).

Toota toota ek parinda aise toota ki phir ud na paaya
Loota loota kis ne usko aise loota ki phir jud na paaya
Udta hua woh aasmaan se aakar gira zameen par
Khwabon mein phir bhi baadal hi the woh kehta raha magar
Ke Allah ke bande hasde, Jo bhi ho kal phir aayega

Hey Cloud,

Nice upbeat, feel good post. Bravo!

A few years ago, I transitioned from paying attention to the tune to the words. Glad I did. It's interesting to see it put the way you did - How someone you never met has such an impact on you with their words! :)

Personally, I am always fond of folks who can articulate their thoughts well. It's an under appreciated trait methinks.
