In sunshine and in shade (Translation of Kabhi Dhoop Kabhi Chaav)

Sometimes in sunshine and sometimes in shade

Your beauty is being discussed in every town and village

You’ve been looking for your soul-mate on the river bank

107 men are on a boat waiting for you to make your pick


Sometimes in the fair or the market or sometimes on the way,

A bed of flowers is laid in your feet everywhere.

But, you will give your look of love to that humble one

who puts a pair of anklets in your feet


Sometimes in rains or winter or with blows of wind

Rumors of our relationship are spreading all around in the air

Sound of these anklets was unable to keep the secret

that “Adi” takes relief only in your arms
