Ma Vlast


Má vlast (Czech pronunciation: [maː vlast], meaning "My homeland") is a set of six symphonic poems composed between 1874 and 1879 by the Czech composer Bedřich Smetana. While it is often presented as a single work in six movements and – with the exception of Vltava – is almost always recorded that way, the six pieces were conceived as individual works. They had their own separate premieres between 1875 and 1880; the premiere of the complete set took place on 5 November 1882 in Prague, under Adolf Čech, who had also conducted two of the individual premieres.
In these works Smetana combined the symphonic poem form pioneered by Franz Liszt with the ideals of nationalistic music which were current in the late nineteenth century. Each poem depicts some aspect of the countryside, history, or legends of Bohemia.

Auld Lang Syne

"Auld Lang Syne" (Scots pronunciation: [ˈɔːl(d) lɑŋˈsəin]: note "s" rather than "z")[1] is a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788[2][3] and set to the tune of a traditional folk song (Roud # 6294). It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight. By extension, it is also sung at funerals, graduations and as a farewell or ending to other occasions. The international Boy Scout youth movement, in many countries, uses it as a close to jamborees and other functions.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, 
And never brought to mind? 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, 
And auld lang syne! 

For auld lang syne, my jo, 
For auld lang syne, 
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet, 
For auld lang syne.  

And surely ye'll be your pint stowp! 
And surely I'll be mine! 
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet, 
For auld lang syne.
 
We twa hae run about the braes, 
And pou'd the gowan fine; 
But we've wander'd mony a weary fitt, 
Sin' auld lang syne. 

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine; 
But seas between us braid hae roar'd 
Sin' auld lang syne.

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere! 
And gie's a hand o' thine! 
And we'll tak a right gude-willie-waught, 
For auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo, 
For auld lang syne, 
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet, 
For auld lang syne.

Lyrics

Ek charraiya ghonsle ko chhod udd udd jaaye
Aur ye soche kaash aisa ho kadam mud jaaye..
Ek charraiya ghonsle ko chhod udd udd jaaye
Aur ye soche kaash aisa ho kadam mud jaaye

Tinka tinka kar batora aur banaaya ghar
Par samay ki barishon ne kar diya beghar
Kar diya beghar, kar diya beghar

O musafir dheer dhar, aayega sooraj idhar
Kaahe bhage, kaahe bhaage
Door jitna jaayega, laut phir na payega
Kaahe bhage, kaahe bhaage
Ek charraiya ko paraaya des kaise bhaaye
Gaon ka peepal puraana yaad usko aaye
Tinka tinka kar batora aur banaaya ghar..
Par samay ki baarishon ne kar diya beghar
Kar diya beghar, kar diya beghar

Yeh jo ansuan ki ladi, behrahi hai har ghadi
Tere aage, tere aage..
Yaad rakh har mod par, ek nai subah khadi
Kaahe bhage, kaahe bhaage

Ek charraiya aansuon se lad jhagad so jaaye
Raah pathreeli hai lekin hausla na jaaye
Tinka tinka kar batora aur banaaya ghar
Par samay ki barishon nekar diya beghar
Kar diya beghar, kar diya beghar
