MAA SUNAO MUJHE WOH KAHANI
Performed by Anuradha Hansraj and Drupatee
Lyrics by Nandlal Pathak

La la-la la, la la-la la-la

Maa, Maa, Maa, Maa...

Maa, Sunao Mujhe Woh Kahani
Jisme Raja Naa Ho Naa Ho Rani
Maa, Sunao Mujhe Woh Kahani
Jisme Raja Naa Ho Naa Ho Rani.

Mama, please tell me the story where there is no King or Queen.

Jo Hamari Tumhari Katha Ho
Jo Sabhi Ke Hiday Ki Vyatha Ho
Jo Hamari Tumhari Katha Ho
Jo Sabhi Ke Hiday Ki Vyatha Ho
Gandh Jisme Bhari Ho Dhara Ki
Baat Jisme Naa Ho Apsara Ki
Ho Naa Paria Jaha Aasmani
Maa Sunao Mujhe Woh Kahani
Jisme Raja Naa Ho Naa Ho Rani
Maa Sunao Mujhe Woh Kahani
Jisme Raja Naa Ho Naa Ho Rani.

The story that relates to you and to me. The story that tells about the anguish of every heart. The story that is filled with the fragrance of the world. A story that does not talk about celestial damsels, or pretty angels in the heavens. Mama, please tell me the story where there is no King or Queen.

Wo kahani jo hansna sikha de
Pet ki bhookh ko jo bhula de
Wo kahani jo hansna sikha de
Pet ki bhookh ko jo bhula de
Jisme sach ki bhari chaandni ho
Jisme um'meed ki roshni ho
Jisme na ho kahani puraani
Maa Sunao Mujhe Woh Kahani
Jisme Raja Naa Ho Naa Ho Rani
Maa Sunao Mujhe Woh Kahani
Jisme Raja Naa Ho Naa Ho Rani.

Tell me the story that will teach me to smile, a story that will make me forget my hunger. One which is filled with the moonlight of truth and rays of hope. A story which is not old and often repeated. Mama, please tell me the story where there is no King or Queen.. The story that gives hope.

Note From The Gull

Thank you, Anuradha Hansraj and Drupatee. Thank you, my Mama, and all the mothers all over the world who, by their devotion teach us that home, security, treasure and safety are created best by hearts. For some of us, we have found nothing else that can compare. For some of us, the time when our mothers were our entire world, is the time we continue to treasure the most.

Jagjit Singh sings in Wo Kagaz ki kashti, wo barish ka pani :

"Yeh Daulat Bhi Le Lo,
Yeh Shohrat Bhi Le Lo,
Bhale Chheen Lo Mujhse Se Meri Jawani
Magar Mujhko Lauta Do bachpan Ka Sawan
Wo Kagaz Ki Kashti, wo Baarish Ka Paani
Wo Kagaz Ki Kashti, wo Baarish Ka Paani
Wo Kagaz Ki Kashti, wo Baarish Ka Paani..."

Take this money, take this fame as well, 
snatch my youth from me if you so wish, 
but return to me those rains of childhood, 
that paper boat, that rain-water..."

to which I add ...and Mama.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
Guanaguanare
