Kili aftermath: The toenail that I’d been told will come off is only 40% off. The one I’d been told will heal, is 90% off.
Listening to a playlist of about 20 songs while working. The only time I get stuck is when these few lines come up once every while.
Ma ne khat me kya likha tha
Jee tu jug jug ye likha tha
Chaar pal bhi jee naa paaya tu
Yaaron se nazrein mila le
Ek baar tu muskura de
Uth jaa saale yun satata hai kyun
Dunno if it’s me missing Ma, missing friends back home, missing home, or just the actual words used. Need to delete the song from playlist if I wish to continue working without getting any more senti… :(
A literal translation of the lyrics for my non-Hindi speaking readers:
What did Mom say in her letter?
Have a long life, she said
But you didn’t even live for 4 moments.
Look into friends’ eyes
Get up bastard, why do you bugger us so..
Context: One of 3 close friends living in a hostel is seriously ill and the other two are praying/singing for him to recover.
Song: Jaane nahin denge from the movie 3 idiots
