Hindi should have been my forte…alas!
There are some words in Hindi which are simply rich, weighty, fat and meaningful. If one tries to explain the word- one runs the risk of losing the magic of that word
One such word that simply works its way to my soul is ‘Apnapan’- early on working on a brand of decorative wall finishes paint I realized the potential of this word which speaks volumes of emotions.
A gentle touch of a finger, the tear wiped - a damn of tears swell to release
A leg resting gently against another – complete harmony
A glance of empathy amidst strangers - a connection
A gentle caring ear to unload without hesitation – unflinching support
A caring voice that soothes the demons away – an enveloping security
A slight nod of approval from the eyes – swelling of pride
A look of askance – replenished confidence
A spontaneous chatter – soul connection
Feel this apnapan in the many million reflections of life
