Day 14

"Re - a drop of golden sun", so went a line from a favourite childhood song "Do Re Mi". And that is how today's harf, Re, is pronuonced. Ray. Or रे in Devnaagri.

raqiib par hai agar lutf to sitam kyaa hai  
(I understand your attitude for what it really is
so what if you torture me by showing benevolence to my rival in love)
