I appreciate your taking the time in trying to teach old dogs new tricks. Something will rub off for sure. Any chance you can decrease the time between podcasts?

hello there from washington DC! I listen to your podcast everytime it comes out and loved the song har pal. There is one line I am confused by. Could you give the meaning word by word of दिल पर टूटा हैं यह कैसा कहर
तुमको पाकर खोने का हैं डर
what I understand so far is: heart upon breaking is, this how (?) to-you knowing lose is fear. I know the word order is weird, but perhaps you could explain it more. I look forward to the next podcast!

You are very close in translation...
It is actually a poetic scrambling of words which is very common in Indian Languages....

दिल पर टूटा हैं यह कैसा कहर -
Kahar - dilemma/confusion ( basically meaning sadness)
Toota - break / struck, In this place it means srtuck
Dil Par toota hai - in ( my) heart , struck is
Yah haisa kahar - this what a dilemma

दिल पर टूटा हैं यह कैसा कहर - What a dilemma struck my heart( What a dilemma my heart is in )

तुमको पाकर खोने का हैं डर - It is in fear of losing you



Hope this helps!!!!!
