Thursday Challenge –  TIME (Hourglass, Clock, Sundial, Calendar, Wristwatch, Old, Young, Aging,…)

(Each crease tells a story of an ERA let alone TIME….. My Nani JI.. Sardarni Harbans kaur Brar)

vo Naani ki baaton mein pariyon kaa deraa
vo Chehre ki jhuriryon mein sadiyon kaa pheraa
bhulaae nahin bhuul sakataa hai koi
vo Chhoti si raaten vo lambi kahaani

(sorry cant translate this in english, you got to figure it out yourself , translation will spoil all the ambience )

    Like you said, she is really beautiful… We should all be blessed with at least one person in our lives who loves us and prays for us despite our stupidities and evident idiocracies, and I think Grandmothers are very much capable of that… this post reminds me of my Dadima… As for wrinkles… they merely indicate where the smiles have lived…@ Punam:You did a wonderful job translating… very impressive!!- Mannat :=)
