Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek Mother: Enough of this hide and seek Why don't you come and gimme just a peek I have searched for you in every other And, tired is your mother!

Comon, the dusk is dawning And I am worried about you Son,you are giving me a fright It's fading my sight So, why don't you please come back!!

Son: What will I say mother Where I am Here, for flying Is the whole wide open sky Here, like your cozy lap Is a world of warmth Where my kite of dreams Is fluttering without a worry Of someone stealing it,breaking the bow Or cutting the string in the middle

Mother: Comon, the dusk is dawning And I am worried about you Son,you are giving me a fright It's fading my sight So, why don't you please come back!!

Without your eyes of guidance I wonder how I'll traverse the path of life... Without your eyes of guidance, I wonder how I'll traverse the path of life...

Slowly in the yard Darkness is encroaching I am searching for my lamp. The setting sun Is signalling Moon, where are you? My moon, where are you?

Enough of this hide and seek Why don't you come and gimme just a peek I have searched for you in every other And, tired is your mother!

Comon, the dusk is dawning And I am worried about you Son,you are giving me a fright It's fading my sight So, why don't you please come back!!

Son: O mother, How will I describe what is here? From my fountain sprouts crystal clear water Which, I just broke and took a drink All my aspirations I just jumped and reached Shadow laden warmth is spread All around, new life forms here tread Everything that I wished for is here But without you my mother, near I still feel alone and lonely...

This is basically a translation of a song that I adore from Rang De Basanti titled Luka Chuppi! Voiced over by Lata Mangeshkar and A.R. Rehman, this is one of the most beautiful songs I have heard in my life! I know I cannot do justice to the lyrics translating it to English, but just tried it! It's the conversation between a mother and her late son! This is the song, once the mother comes to know that her son has just died!
