badal

baadal
abhi tum jao

prithvi ke chaaron kono ko
chaar baar chooke aao

abhi, ye jo dhoop hai
is se batein karni hain mujhe

jab tum wapas aaoge
to jee bhar ke khelenge hum


winters in delhi. finally.
now, i'll sit with my sunshine and talk my heart out.
and i would love if sigma or aditi improve this translation for me :)

cloud
you go now

touch the four corners of earth four times
and come back then

i've to talk to
this sunshine now

we'll play a lot,
when you come back again

i dont like winters adi,bt its gud that u like it,so enjoy the weather,its for u,
har ek aus ki boondh ko mehsoos kar jo sukuun milta hai,
aisa lagta hai jaise yeh darti swarg banne ki koshish kar rahi hai,
itni swach to pehle hamne na dekha tha ise,
aaj to yeh jannat ki tarah lag rahi hai.:)

badal nahi hai fir bhi dhund hai jo dhaanp leti hai dhoop ko aanchal me apne aur fir lagti hai aur bhi khubsurat jab laut k aati hai us surkh laali ke saath jo jhagad kar dhund se fir milne aati hai pyar se...

But winters make me lazy. A person who jst likes to sleep, snuggled up in a warm quilt...

Seems like my translation skills have been over-rated. :-D
Nice one Adi, but even I wont attempt translating this one :-)
