RAINING IN KUTCH
Kutchad de mihdho vasto
When it rains in Kutch, it will blossom.
Mujho khetar boro khaso lag toh
My farm would look lovely and it will blossom.
Muhje khetar mai milla mung pokhiyan
I’ve found mung beans in my farm.
Neelo neelo moro nach toh
There is a blue peacock that is dancing in the farm.
WE WILL MEET
Jade tavar deyun kyunjdi jadyun
When the flamingo comes around the lake,
Tade tahn milda si
that is when we’ll meet.
Tade tahn milda si, ah ladeh
That is when we’ll meet, oh god!
Bibran mai pee guh badhi
When the flowers blossom in the tree,
Toh ludhi tah tada ludh da si
then we’ll meet and savour the fruit together.
BOONS OF THE RAIN
Fulay jeh vane mate valyu paryon
When the trees of Fulay are covered in vines,
Gasan teh gahatiya
the grass will grow on the way,
Mal chara da ri ala
that is when we will make the cows graze.
Mathe bibr hetha paani phul taran da
When clouds are in the sky and the water is on the land,
Vichin jo veeko mathe veled vada da
the farmers will walk here, to feed their cows.
MY LOVE IS COMING BACK
Karayale kang kare ka ka a de toh
The crow is cawing, someone is about to come.
Ankh par kheti muhjo rano ache toh
My eye is squinting, I think my lover is going to come home.
Dil dhadke tehi mujho sodho ache toh
My heart is beating fast, I think my man is coming home.
Mehndi mali maji laya ladal toh jo khet je
I’ve decorated my hands with henna in wait of my lover’s return.
Mama guraya maso guraya
I’ve called my uncle and and my aunt,
Penje ladal ke godh bataya
to let them know my lover is returning home.
That's it folks!
