PYALA SAYANEKA

dho goot paniheetho mangihai tumse devi
is bikhre dilki daasthan sunlo
dho goot paniheetho mangihai tumse devi
is bikhre dilki daasthan sunlo
pyasa kuve par aaya hai
pani na sahi humein zahar piladho.

THE CUP OF THE ADOLESCENT

I ask for just two pegs of water, goddess
Listen to this kindred soul's tale
I ask for just two pegs of water, goddess
Listen to this kindred soul's tale
The thirsty wanderer has come to the well
If not water, quench my thirst with poison from your hands.
