How Things Change, by Manisha Shahane
[This song incorporates excerpts of Hindi language lyrics from the song “Le To Aaye Ho” by Ravindra Jain. Translations are in ( ).]
Le to aaye ho hame sapano ke gaon mein. Pyar ke chhaaon mein bithaaye rakhanaa. Sajanaa O Sajanaa. (You brought me into this dream world. Oh, my dear, now keep me in the shade of love.) As the gravel kissed the wheels goodbye, I turned right onto the paved road, onto the winding path, through grassy knolls, past the 11 acres that are yours—where the birds and flirting with the deer and the butterflies unfold, as if heaven was upon the earth. Then I see the highway just ahead, so I pause to take a left, when I am greeted by a Rebel flag on the fireworks stand. How things change, yet remain the same. Just a little farther up the road, I’m looking for the bend, for the shortcut that will take me home, the one I used to know. How things change, yet remain the same. At the Apple Valley Motel, I pause to make a left and on that 17th mile I wondered, “when will I see you again?” Tumase shuroo, tumhipe kahaani khatam kare. Dujaanaa aaye koi nainoke gaon mein. (This story begins and ends with you. For me, there is no one else.) Le to aaye ho hame sapano ke gaon mein. Pyar ke chhaaon mein bithaaye rakhanaa. Sajanaa O Sajanaa. I kissed your belly thrice—once for each babe you held inside and again for the love of sisters and of friends that would bring us back together, when things change.
