In which I share my life with you

21,

Punjabi jatti, Sikh, lover, fighter, running and lifting enthusiast, yogini in training, nerd, amateur biologist, Hindi music lover, Cal Bear, eternal romantic, forever a student and so much more. Careful, you just might fall in love.

Study break! I rediscovered my love for Baba Farid ji’s dohe (couplets). I tried to stay to true to the Gurmukhi of the time. It’s so very different from today’s written language! Irrespective of creed, these words ring true. 🙏 

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਖਾਕੁ ਨ ਨਿੰਦੀਅੈ ਖਾਕੂ ਜੇਡੁ ਨ ਕੇਇ॥
ਜੀਵਦਿਆ ਪੈਰਾ ਤਲੈ ਮੁਇਆ ਉਪਰਿ ਹੋਇ॥

Translation: Fareed, do not slander the dust; nothing is as great as dust. 
When we are alive, it is under our feet, and when we are dead, it is above us.
