CAREFUL... THE MOON IS LOKING AT US ...


I AM REMINDED OF A SONG FROM FILM “DOOJ KA CHAAND”.. I ADD SOME LINES FROM MEMORY ....


Phool Shaakhon Se Jhuke Jaate Hain Honthon Ki Taraf
Jhonke Bal Khaa Ke Mudde Jaate Hain Zulfon Ki Taraf
Chhorr Kar In ki Dagar Aao Kahin Chhup Jaayein
Kahin Laage Na Nazar Aao Kahin Chhup Jaaayein
........................................Chaand Taktaa hai idhar


"Flowers from Branches are bowing to be closer to lips,
The gentle wind wafts back to get trapped in the hair curls ,
Let us leave their passageway ,
Let us hide somewhere else..
Lest some evil eye notice us ,
Let us hide somewhere .....
………………….. At this spot , The moon too looks at us from up above .."

( AUTAR MOTA )
