One of the things that make this journey of life so enjoyable are your friends, in just so so many ways. But such has been the case of my nomadic life, that they have just been there with me (physically) in phases. These, albeit short times, were so special - be it through school, college, work and now here in Dubai.

Back in 2005, B, my mate from India, sent me these lines, written for me by her, that touched me then and have continued to do so every time that I read them. Inspired by Rang's header, I wanted to try my hand at some Hindi typo, trying to present this soon-to-be-forgotten national language in a unique manner, and well what better way to start with then these beautiful heart rendering lines. :)

For B

The above simply translated means:

The path that I was walking on at one point in my life, I had made it the very essence of my being
But now there is no one waiting for me here, it's just me alone
I wonder when will I be able to take a few steps and move on from here
And where will my new destination be
