In school, in one of the ICSE Hindi textbooks, we had a set of Dohae (or two line poems) from Kabir. Today, I was suddenly reminded of them.

After no end two trying different spellings and search terms (and two search engines), I have to confess, that I'm at a loss for finding the set of poems that I had originally studied. Now I realize that what might have been in the textbook is neither canonical nor exactly ordered, but my memory lends itself to the poetry having a certain cadence and meter, which I'm missing now.

Boye Ped Babool Ke,
Aam Kahan Se Khaye

Good link
But no, that's not what I was looking for.

Ek Aur Ek Gyarah was such torture!
