खुशनसीब / Fortunate

लोग कहते हैं,
हमाम* में
सभी नंगे होते हैं…
खुशनसीब हैं वो,
जिनके पास
हमाम ही नहीं होते…


People say
that in the hammam*
all are naked…
fortunate are those
who have
no hammam…

  1. Interesting, it’s the same word in Arabic…I have lived with and without an indoor hamamm..and I guess I would say, I prefer being being naked within four closed walls:) It’s a very clever piece, Kaushal!!

    1. There are so many words, which are Arabic, but used in Urdu and adopted in Hindi as well. Thank you, Karima for your thoughtful comment and sharing your beautiful reflections 😊💐💖🙏
