my eyes like faded roses of hope,

and the urge to live

Is like a wretched person returning home

That is why lam my own lawyer witness and judge. I am note prey to any perplexity while unfolding the mysteries of him. While talking about my sentiments, actions, mishaps and events, 1 have exploited the softness and stiff his of words equally because I wish you to feel the intensity of the storms of ecstasy and agony through which I have passed, the way I have felt them, so that you may be able to properly analyze my tolerance and neutrality...” For its disarming candidness, the starkness of creativity, gaminess of emotions and factual presentations of his life, this work is considered a unique contribution to the Indian fiction in Urdu,

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
