Thorns, as opposed to

flowers, embody opposite qualities. Thorns are hard, ugly, and cause pain with a simple prick. They are what they are and represent no duality of character. Like flowers, they don’t deceive the onlookers with their beautiful appearance. Such ideas would come across in some of the verses we have selected for you. You would also discover how our concepts of thorns and flowers have been reiterated and challenged by poets, as well as how the two represent the dualities of life characterized by odds and evens.

humne kanTon ko bhi narmi se chhua hai aksar

kanTon se dil lagao jo ta-umr sath den

humne kanTon ko bhi narmi se chhua hai aksar
