REMEMBER – Hugging is healthy. It helps the immune system, cures depression, reduce stress, and induces sleep. It’s invigorating, rejuvenating & has no unpleasant side effects. It’s nothing less than a miracle drug. Hugging is all natural. It’s organic, naturally sweet, has no artificial ingredients, environmentally friendly & is 100% wholesome. Hugging is the ideal gift. Great for any occasion, fun to give & receive, shows you care, comes with its own wrapping paper and, of course, is fully returnable.

भोर हुई उठ तू भी गा ले

गाने से जीवन बढता है
दुख घटता और सुख मिलता है
भूल आपदाओ को हमसे
स्वर से स्वर तू आज मिला ले
भोर हुई उठ तू भी गा ले

कलरव अनतरिश्र का सुन तू
दुनिया का जनरव भी सुन तू
सुन सुन कर सबके स्वर तू
अपना मौलिक राग बना ले
भोर हुई उठ तू भी गा ले

पर क्या गायेगा वह प्राणी
जिसकी मौन हुई हो वाणी
जीवित का स्वर जीवनमय है
आगे बढकर तू भी गा ले
भोर हुई उठ तू भी गा ले

उन मील के पत्थरों पे
लिखे तो थे
कुछ मंज़िलों के फ़ासले
गर हम जिधर मुड़ चलें हैं
वो राह ही मंज़िल है
…wandering on ….
