”Mahobbat karna humare bs me nhi h per us mahobbat se durr chle Jana vo humare bs me hai…”

Your heart breaks into a million pieces making it difficult for you to face the world. Always wondering over the question- “Why did you give up on me when you loved me ?” Heartbreaks hurt even more than physical pain. It destroys you from inside. It kills you. The days seem extremely long. And thanks to our talented musicians and singers who had the courage and passion for composing and singing heartbreak songs when every part of your body is broken.
