My knowledge of Hindi is zilch, unless you count the few words I know from similarities to Marathi and from Bollywood films. I’ll probably never learn Hindi to the extent that I’m learning Korean. But I go through cycles (usually brought on by stress/anxiety) of intensely longing to connect more with my culture and heritage. Hearing Hindi/Urdu somehow brings a bit of that back into my life. Plus I’m homesick. ><
यहाँ वहां सारा जहाँ देख लिया, अब तक भी तेरे जैसा कोई नहीं.
yahan vahan saara jahan dekh liya, ab tak bhi tere jaisa koi nahin
I’ve been here and there and seen the whole world, yet there is no one like you anywhere.
