Deprivation has been

one of the more popular concerns in poetry. Most of these relate with the lovers who have been pining and lamenting over their fate. They have thus been configured variously through ages. Here are some examples that may help you appreciate the experience of deprivation.

sājan ham se mile bhī lekin aise mile ki haa.e

jaise sūkhe khet se bādal bin barse uḌ jaa.e

sajan hum se mile bhi lekin aise mile ki hae

jaise sukhe khet se baadal bin barse uD jae
