    Thank you very much for the invaluable service of translating the ghazals for us. I am a telugu, but I try to learn and sing them. But Urdu is beautiful at the same time very difficult to understand. I always felt the need for the right word and its meaning (so that I can feel it while singing). Thanks once again for the great blog and keep it up for the sake of all ghazal and urdu lovers!!!

    The words are the trúe feelings of pure heart… ishq ka paak sa ehsaas har kisi k lavzon me nhi hota… Aksar ye ishq kuch khas par hi mehrban hota hai
