LYRICS

Jaavo ni koi rasam chadaavo
Someone please put an end to these rituals

Jaandiya kyon betiyan chhadd ke
Why are daughters destined to leave their own parents?

Baabul de baaghan diyan kaliyaan
These blooming buds of their fathers’ gardens

Jaandiya jigraan nu kadhke
Take our hearts away as they go

Baabuleya moreya ve, babuleya moreya ve
My dear father,

Mainu tu kyon toreya ve
Why are you sending me away?

Rehna tere hi vedhe, menu rakhlae tu nere
I wish to stay close to you, in this very courtyard

Kade tu na paavi dooriyan, haaye
Never let distances come between us

Kade tu na paavi dooriyan
Never let distances come between us

Sir mere hath oh rahe
May your blessings always be by my side

Menu sada rahe tera aasra, haaye
I seek your support all the time

Menu sada rahe tera aasra
I seek your support all the time

Rabba mere khair kare, menu sada rahe tera aasra
May lord be there all the way, I seek your support all the time

Menu sada rahe tera aasra
I seek your support all the time

Meri Laado raano, meri laado raano,
Oh my beloved daughter…

Meri laado raano, meri laado raano ve
Oh my beloved daughter

Tere saddke main jaavo ve
I can sacrifice the entire world for your happiness

Naye ghar jo tu jaaye, thandiya chhaavan hi paaye
As you move into your new home, I wish you all the comfort and happiness

Bane rehmat de saaye, hanju bhulke na aave
Oh Lord, please be gracious to my daughter, let there never be tears in her eyes

Maape te ne parchaaiyan, haaye
We parents are like shadows

Maape te ne parchaiyan, Sada koi sang na rahe
We parents are like shadows – however much we want, we cannot stay with you forever

Sohni bani rahe jodi teri, ho
May your love for each other prosper till eternity

Sohni bani rahe jodi teri
May your love for each other prosper till eternity

Rabba mere mehr kare
Oh Lord, please shower your eternal blessings on my daughter

Sohni bani rahe jodi teri, haaye
May the newly wed couple’s love for each other prosper forever

Sohni bani rahe jodi teri
May the newly wed couple’s love for each other prosper forever

Dheeyan hundiya paaraayiyan (5)
Daughters are destined to leave their parental home one day

Khushi jithe oh jaayiyan ve
They spread joy and happiness wherever they go

Dinde saare vadhaaiyan ve, torh preetan nibhaiyan
Everyone congratulates and showers their blessings on the newly wed couple, may your love for each other be there till eternity

Paa lae shagnaa de fere, nave rishte ne tere
This is an auspicious beginning to your new relationships

Doli bethke oh hai chali, haaye
As you sit in the palanquin to say goodbye

Doli bethke oh hai chali
As you sit in the palanquin to say goodbye

Ghar mera khaali hogya
The emptiness of the house haunts me

Mere hathan vich oh si pali, ho
We’ve raised you with so much love, it pains to see you go

Mere hathan vich oh si pali
We’ve raised you with so much love, it pains to see you go

Dil da tukda gya
I feel like a part of my heart is going away

Meri bitiya meri laadli, haaye
Farewell, my beloved daughter

Meri bitiya meri laadli
Farewell, my beloved daughter…

THAT MAGICAL BOLT OF CUPID – Shweta & Ivano Wedding Trailer

Singer Shweta Pandit was struck by it and her life changed…

From being almost a non believer of the idea of Cupid and it’s serendipitous ways to being struck hard by it, witness her Italian connection and the consequences of her heart-warming affair with destiny…
