(Photographs clicked by Autar Mota )

 To these  photographs I add my faourite Hindi  poem  "Jo Tum Aa Jaatay Ek Baar " (  If you could  visit me  once only …..) composed by  Hindi poetess Mahadevi Verma . I have also done  simple English rendering  of this poem for  readers who do not know Hindi.....

( Jo Tum Aa Jaatay Ek Baar )

Kitanee karuna kitnay sandesh
Path mein bichh jaatay ban paraag
Gaata Praanon ka Taar Taar
Anuraag bharaa unmaad Raag
Aansoo leitay ve pag pakhaar

JO TUM AA JAATAY EK BAAR…………

Hans uthatay  Munn ke Aadr nain
Dhuul Jaata Honthon ka vishaad
Chha jaata jeevan mein vasant
Lutt Jata Chir sanchit viraag
Aankhein Deitee sarvasv vaar .
JO TUM AA JAATAY EK BAAR
( Mahadevi Verma )


Plentiful of compassion and abundance of  communications
Would spread  in the pathway as   pollen.
These heartbeats of mine would
Resonate with music   ,
A music of   carefree  passion
 And love filled tunes .
The tears  would clear the corridor for you ,

If you could  visit me  once only …..

These eyes full of tears would blush with  delight
And the lips would wash away  their woefulness,
Spring would visit  my  life with all its spree
And put this long stored up pain to end .
And these  eyes would shower all love that they hold within

If you could  visit me  once only …..

                                                                     
                ( Smt.  Indira Gandhi  presenting an award to Mahadevi ji in 1983 )
