Mother’s Day Song …
My ever favourite song in praise of mothers, is from an old Bollywood movie titled “Raja Aur Runk” (1968).
On the occasion of Mothers’ Day (8th May 2011), I make a humble attempt to translate this song from Hindi to English for the benefit of my readers.
I dedicate this posting to my late mother.
The original song is as under :
Tu Kitni Achhi Hai, Tu Kitni Bholi Hai, Pyaari Pyaari Hai, O Maa, O Maa !
Yeh Jo Duniya Hai,Yeh Ban Hai Kaanton Ka, Tu Phulwaari Hai, O Maa, O Maa !
Dukhne Laagi Hai Maa Teri Aankhiyaan, Mere Liye Jaagi Hai Tu, Saari Saari Ratiyaan,
Meri Nindiyaa Pe, Apni Nindiyaa Bhi, Tune Vaari Hai, O Maa, O Maa…..
Apna Nahin Tujhe Sukh Dukh Koi, Main Muskaaya,Tu Muskaayi, Main Roya Tu Royi,
Mere Hansne Pe, Mere Rone Pe, Tu Balihaari Hai, O Maa,O Maa……
Maa Bachon Ki Jaan Hoti Hai, Voh Hote Hai Kismat Waale,Jinki Maa Hoti Hai, Kitni Sundar Hai,
Kitni Sheetal Hai, Nyaari Nyaari Hai, O Maa,O Maa …….
Tu Kitni Achhi Hai, Tu Kitni Bholi Hai, Pyaari Pyaari Hai, O Maa, O Maa….
Mother,you are so good, you are so innocent,
You are so very loveable, Oh mom, Oh mom…..
This world is like a forest full of thorns, In which,you are like a garden full of flowers. Oh mom, Oh mom…..
Your eyes are very sore and so tired, Since you have been awake for me,all nights.
You have sacrificed your sleep,so that I could sleep well, Oh mom,Oh mom…..
You aren’t bothered of your own happiness or sorrows; When I smiled, you smiled; when I cried, you cried.
You just went agog with emotions to my crying and to my laughter. Oh mom,Oh mom…..
A mother is really the life of her children, The ones who have mums,are really fortunate.
You are so beautiful,so cool and calm. So wonderful are you, Oh mom,Oh mom……….
Mother, you are so good, you are so innocent, You are so very loveable, Oh mom, Oh mom…..
