Yaara Seeli Seeli Lyrics
O yaara seeli seeli dhola seeli seeli
Yeh bhi koi jeena hai
Yeh bhi koi marna
O sweetheart, the cold night of separation burns away slowly. Is this the way to live? Is this the way to die?
Two lovers are parting ways and this night brings with it, numerous complications.
WORD- Seeli: Cold, Birha: Separation.
FACT - The movie is loosely based on "Hungry Stones" - a short story written by Rabindranath Tagore in 1895.
Pichhli gali mein jaane kya chhod aayi main
Beeti hui galiyon se Phir se guzarna
With broken bangles, I try to piece together my wrist. I don’t know what I have left behind, in the lanes of past.
Those lanes that I had previously left, I cross them again now. The protagonist is surrounded by memories. Memories of a happier time, memories of a more satisfying place.
WORD- Choodiyan: Bangles, Pichhli: Last, Guzarna: To pass through
Mere saath jaaye na meri parchhaayi re
Baahar ujaala hai andar viraana
I don’t have a shadow below my feet. Neither do I have God's blessing over my head.
Even my own reflection isn’t accompanying me anymore. There is light outside. Inside, there's loneliness.
She feels deserted and doesn’t know whom to turn to. Where can she possibly seek peace and protection?
WORD- Saaya: Shadow, Parchhai: Reflection, Viraana: Loneliness.
