Powerful prayer song

The times are tough

there is imbalance

We bow down and pray for your mercy

O Lord of the lords make everything meaningful and worthy

The minds have become corrupt

and everything is abrupt

The discipline and pious are in danger

the goodness and truth are on pier

 We bow down and pray for your mercy

O Lord of the lords make everything meaningful and worthy

The innocent and minor are exploited

The law and order are manipulated

The deserving is tortured and blew

and the colour kicked out from its hue

We bow down and pray for your mercy

O Lord of the lords make everything meaningful and worthy


Shiv-Parvati Marriage Song

Bum bum bholaa
Bum bum bholaa

Lord Shiva is ready for the union with Goddess Parvati
The palanquin is ready and Shiva has worn meaningless Ash

Lord Shiva is ready……

With all the Arrangements done by his Shivgans
The trident look beautiful in his right arm
and the dance of his Shivgan increases the charm
Lord, Brahmaa and vishhnu is carrying the sacred books

With his infectious walk
and the letting the cannabis talk
Lord Shiva is ready for the union with Goddess Parvati
The palanquin is ready and Shiva has worn meaningless Ash

Parvati’s mother is ready with the tilak
the snake on the Shivas neck turned hosile
Mom is unsatisfied with the weird Shiva’s profile

She ran for her life and looked displease
decides, let my daughter remain unmarried with ease

Parvati is convincing her mother, that, She is determined
The union with Lord Shiva is destined

Parvati Mother is frightened with the Ghostly looks of groom
Parvati request the almighty to appear in the softer countenance Lord Shiva looks handsome and Parvati ready to bloom

Hail to Lord Shiva
Hail to Goddess Durga

The entire universe is celebrating with joy
The lord of the lords and beholder of river Ganga

Lord Shiva is ready for the union with Goddess Parvati
The palanquin is ready and Shiva has worn meaningless Ash
