Shakti: आज की अदभुत खोंज - बचपन के स्वीट्स इतने सालों बाद! (aaj kii aDbhuT khonj - bacpaN ke SwiitS iTNe Saalon baaD!)
John: "Today's extraordinary find - childhood sweets after so many years!"

John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Today's extraordinary find."
Shakti: आज की अदभुत खोंज (aaj kii aDbhuT khonj)
John: The last word…
Shakti: khonj
John: means “a find” or “a search.” And the other word…
Shakti: aDbhuT

Shakti: (SLOW) आज की अदभुत खोंज (aaj kii aDbhuT khonj) (REGULAR) आज की अदभुत खोंज (aaj kii aDbhuT khonj)
John: Then comes the phrase - "childhood sweets after so many years."
Shakti: बचपन के स्वीट्स इतने सालों बाद! (bacpaN ke SwiitS iTNe Saalon baaD!)
John: The expression starts with the word…
Shakti: bacpaN
John: which means “childhood.” Then, we have…
Shakti: iTNe Saalon baaD
John: This is a common phrase which means “after so many years.” It’s used as an exclamatory phrase. Listen again - "childhood sweets after so many years" is...
Shakti: (SLOW) बचपन के स्वीट्स इतने सालों बाद! (bacpaN ke SwiitS iTNe Saalon baaD!) (REGULAR) बचपन के स्वीट्स इतने सालों बाद! (bacpaN ke SwiitS iTNe Saalon baaD!)
