That interval scene, and Amrita Pritam's poetic lines "Main tenu phir milaangi" had me in tears.
at the sametime these lines from a ghazal echoed in my mind:
Hamein Chahiye Tha Milna
Kisi ehd-e-meherbaan Mein..
Kisi Khwab Ke Yaqeen Mein,
Kisi Aur Aasman Par
Kisi Aur Sarzameen Mein,
Hamein Chahiye Tha Milna…
– Poetry by Parveen Shakir
(Translation: We ought to have met,
in another time,
in pursuit of attainable dreams,
below a different sky,
upon a different earth,
We ought to have met then, there.)
