Here is the link to the song : Nindiya re
Haule haule raaton ko, chupke se aaja re
Nindiya re nindiya re, ankhiyon mein sama jaa re
Kahin dur sitaaron pe, chanda ke ishaaron pe,
Palne ko tere jo pariyon ne jhulaaya re
Jugnu panchi, pyaare pyaare, tere sapne bune
Neend bhare in aankhon se teri chupke se kehte rahein
So jaa re, so ja re, sapno mein kho jaa re
Sneak in gently in the night, Oh sleep, come fill the eyes
On some distant star, at the request of the moon
The fairies gently sway your cradle
Lovely fireflies and birds, weave you dreams,
And keep telling your sleepy eyes,
Fall asleep, drift away into your dreams.
The song does not have fancy words but that is how lullabies should be right, no difficult words, no hidden meanings, just a tune and a song that spells peace and that is exactly how this song is. I sing it to my niece and she falls asleep in no time. I clicked this picture on one such occasions.
Oh and happy children’s day, do kids still celebrate Chacha Nehru’s birthday in India, I wonder? Probably my little cousins can help me with this one. 🙂
