When the sun sinks and softly descends
At a mellow pace in Heaven's wide arch

    The hills are always lively.They have always stories to tell and cherish from Hindukush to Himalayas-from Kashgarh to Karimabad- -from Rakaposhi to Everest- from Hunzas to the Tibetan plateaus to to Tawang.Stories never end be it changes the way it tells from Nishapur to Neshabur.Impressive write.
