The day I heard this song I fell for it. One of the most melodious folk songs from the culturally rich Nepal. I searched for the singer, writer and the musician and to my surprise found them all to be one, Sri Tulasi Parajuli. Though I could talk to him over phone, all our plans to meet fell through for various other pressing engagements. And at last on 5th August, 2012 my dream came true. We met and he sang the same song for me. We had tea together and I relished every moment of togetherness. He transliterated the song for me with an autograph.
I am posting it here on my blog for all music lovers and as a small token of my love and adoration for Sri Tulasi Parajuli.
Tulasiji, I would carry your song throughout my life as a precious gift from this beautiful country. Thank you.
Aakashaiko Kaalo Baadal….. Paani Paryo Jhamma Jhamma
Madaluko Taalaima…. Nachou Aaja Chamma Chamma
Maiti Raajai Samjhi Aayou ………Pardosako Maato Samjhera
Ramailo yo Vetaimaa…Nachou Aaja Chamma Chamma
Voli Kasle Dekheko Hunchha Marincha ki Bachincha Lai Lai
Samjana nai Mitho Huncha Juni Juni Saachinchha Lai Lai
Yehi Mitho Samjhanale… Dukha peera Sabhai Boolera
Pardesha Bata Samjhi Aaye Afnai Pyaro mato Samjhera
Birsiyou Ki Maiti Raja Jhaure Ra Maruni Bhaka
Sarangi ko Mitho Dhund Murchunga Ra Bina Yo Baja
Samjhanale Sadhai Tanchha Nepali Man Muhar Hasi lo
Hamilai ta Lagchha ni Lai Lai Afnai Gauko Pani Rasilo(Akashaiko..)
