This is a song for the festival of Teej that is celebrated in the month of 'Shraavan' by the women in North India.
Its written like a conversation between two friends and describes the separation and the excitement of meeting with their beloved in the picturesque month of monsoon.


Boondan Boondan Barse Meha,
Kajrari Kaari Badariya,
Aise Naache Mora Manva,
Jaise Banme Mor Papiha

Bheege Na More Pi Ki Patiya,
Ho Jisme Aavan Ki Batiya,
Baawri Tu Aur Tera Andesa,
Saawan Piya Aavan ka Sandesa,
Chal Daale Jhule Bagho Mein,
Phir Mehke Mehndi Hatho Mein,
Sa Sa...Sa Re Ni Sa ni dha Ni Sa ni Pa ga Ma Re Sa Ni Sa
Boondan Boondan

Translation :
The rain drops are falling,
And how the clouds have put kohl !
My heart dances with joy
Like a peacock in the forest !

Ohh let not my beloveds letter get drenched
What if it has the message of His homecoming?
Ohh crazy you and your silly doubts!
These rains are itself a message of his homecoming!
Lets put swings in the garden!
Lets put henna on our hands!
Sa Sa...
