Lukka Chhupi-RDB-Lyrics with meaning

Luka Chuppi bahut huyi saamne aa ja naa
Enough of hide and seek, come before me.
Kahan kahan dhoondha tujhe
I searched for you everywhere.
Thak gayi hai ab teri maa
Your mother is now tired.
Aaja saanjh hui mujhe teri fikar
Its evening and I'm worried about you

Dhundhla gayi dekh meri nazar aa ja na
Hazy is what my sight is, come to me

Kya bataoon maa kahan hoon main.
What do I tell you about the place where I am, maa?
Yahan udney ko mere khula aasmaan hai
There is freedom and independence like the vast sky here.
Tere kisson jaisa bhola salona
Like your stories it is innocent and beautiful here
Jahan hain yahan sapno vala
Its like a dreamland here.
Meri patang ho befikar udd rahi hai maa
My kite (I am) is flying without any worries maa.
Dor koi loote nahin beech se kaate na
Nobody to steal or cut my kite's string.

Teri raah takey aankhiyaan
My eyes are waiting for your arrival.
Jaane kaisa kaisa hoye jiyaa
My heart is going through various emotions.
Dhire dhire aangan uthre andhera, mera deep kahan
Slowly darkness in creeping in the courtyard, where is my lamp(son)
Dhalke suraj kare ishara chanda tu hai kahan
The sun is setting and gesturing to the moon, where are you?
Mere chanda tu hai kahan
Where are you my moon (son)?

Kaise tujhko dikhaun yahaan hai kya
How do I show you what is here?
Maine jharne se paani maa, tod ke piya hai
I've drunk water from the fountain maa
Guchcha guchcha kayee khwabon ka uchal ke chuwa hai
I've touched several clusters of my dreams
Chaaya liye bhali dhoop yahaan hai
The sunlight along with the shade is here
Naya naya sa hai roop yahan
The atmosphere is so different and new
Yahaan sab kuch hai maa phir bhi
All that I want is here maa... but still...
Lage bin tere mujhko akela
Loneliness is what I feel here without you

Dum dara dum dara mast mast
Dara dum dara dum dara mast mast
Dara dum dara dum dum
Oh humdum bin tere kya jeena (2)
Oh my love, what's the point in living without you

Tere bina beswaadi beswaadi rathiyan oh sajna (2) Without you the nights are tasteless oh darling
Ho, rookhi re oh rookhi re Dry and parched they are
Kaatoore kaate re, katenaa Trying to pass them, but they don't seem to
(Dum dara..)

Na jaa; chaakri ke maare Don't go, because of the job
Na jaa; souten pukaare, Don't go, the other wife calls
Saawan aayega to puchega If the rain comes, it would ask
Naa jaa rey Please don't go
Pheeki Pheeki beswaadi yeh rathiyan. Dry and tasteless these nights are
Kaatore kaate na kate na Trying to pass time, but it doesn't
Ab tere bina sajna sajna Now without you my darling
Kaate kate na (2) Even time doesn't pass
(Dum dara...)

Tere bina chand ka sona khota re Without you, the moon's golden is impure
Peeli peeli dhool udaave jhoota re The yellow dust flying is false
Tere bina sona peetal Without you, gold seems like brass
Tere sang keekar peepal With you, the keekar plant becomes peepal
Aaja kate na ye rathiyan Come, these nights don't pass at all
Tere bina beswaadi beswaadi rathiyan oh sajna
(Dum dara...)

Fly high

Flying high up in the sky
I feet like a free kite
Watching the tiny world
Flying alongside the birds.

The grass looked like a tiny green pool
The woodlands like a vast carpet of green
Dotted with small specks of the season's colors
The rivers like blue satin ribbons
The people like toys
And I felt like a giant
All in a simple dream !

Forgive me

For everything I've said and done,
For everything that made you run,
Everytime I hurt you bad
I'm sorry, I can't see you sad.

Now I'm mild & meek,
Forgiveness is all I seek,
I cast my eyes upon the ground,
Twiddle my thumbs, not making the slightest of sound.

I don't want to run, escape or hide !
I confront you dumb & mute
I'm so tongue-tied
And so I plead with only the soul so resolute.

You smile, I stutter
My limbs start to flutter
And all I have on my lips now is a simple Sorry.

And another year passes by

Aug 24th 2005.
That day is etched in my mind. The day I walked into my campus with a totally apprehensive mind. New place, new people, unfamiliar territories, it was a new beginning. I had my doubts if I would be able to manage all this. Is engineering for me? Its a rat race that I'm joining. I would still be a rat at the end of it. I put aside all these thoughts. It was hard to not let them haunt me.I missed my friends from school, I hated it all. I began to rue my fate.
But then I've grown to accept all this and do note, I'm not saying that I'm liking it. I've just gotten used to it. Semester one passed by and in semester 2 I again started doubting if I had made a mistake. But then all this is over. I've got to finish my course and get a life of my own. I've climbed 2 rungs in the engineering ladder and in the process have learnt a lot of things. Am mentally, academically, physically, spiritually an year older and atleast definitely possess a maturity level higher than what I did last year.
And this blog will stand testimonial of all this.
