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

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
