March 8th is the International Women's Day, so for all you wonderful women out there these lines from Altaf Hussain Hali's poetry ....just for you !
Aye Maaon , behno, betiyon , duniya ki zeenat tumse hai,
Mulkon ki basti ho tumhi , Qaumon ki izzat tumse hai.
(O mothers, sisters and daughters, you are our wealth and pride,
You are the nation's honor, the source of bustling life ---- as translated by K.C. Nanda)
Happy Women's Day !!!
