    Akhiyan Udeek Diyan by Nusrat sahib comes to mind, as one looks at this picture Shweta. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXQz1yTSGA4. To me it points to Journey Inward. Thanks

    Hi Raj,

    Thanks so much. 🙂

    I looked for the translation to that song lyrics… you are right… the painting does speak the song 🙂

    The reason I don’t have anything written with that painting is, well, becasue anything I wrote did not seem to fit the painting. So I put the painting out here with the intention, something fitting would come up to post with it… I will post the lyrics here now.

    Thanks Raj.
    Really appreciate this.
