Begum Akhtar Love’s Own Voice
Begum Akhtar Love’s Own Voice
Description
Back of the Book

Aye Mohabbat Tere Anjam pr Rona Aya
Ab Chhalakte Huye Sagar
Ye na Thi Hamari Qismat
Diwaana Banana Hai to Dewana
Uzr Anne Mein Bhi Hai
Ulti Ho Gyi Sab Tadbiren
Nanadiya Kahe Mare bol
Hamar Kahin Mano Rajaji
Lagi Beriya piya ke Avan ki
Mora Balam Pardesiya

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
