Chale jo do kadam saath woh, (As she ambles the aisle with me) To unke saath se Pyaar ho jaye, (May I be enmeshed in her companionship forever) Thaame jo Pyaar se mera haath woh, (As she seizes my hand with tender love) To apne hi haath se Pyaar ho jaye, (May I be ensnared by the charm of my own hand) Hota hai agar itna khoobsurat yeh Pyaar, (If love is so alluring and prepossessing) To aye Khuda unhe bhi mere Pyaar se Pyaar ho jaye! (Oh omniscient being! May she be enchanted by my love) It was 5 in the morning when I blinked open an eye to wake up. I was in deep sleep till some time ago, and it felt as if someone had lovingly caressed my hair. But when I opened my eyes, there was no one there. For a few precious moments, I felt the sensation of that loving touch that I had experienced since childhood. It seemed as if that sensation was all around me. Now that presence was close to me; my Radha in the form of Annu was in my life. Divine Love of Two Souls is a story of those emotions that this generation has perhaps lost along the way.
