  • Kumar Gandharva: Mangal Din Aaj

  • Mangal din aaj, Banna ghar aayo 
    Such an Auspicious beautiful day it is, for He has come home 
    Aanand man-bharaa, baanwari bhayi mai to 
     heart filled with happiness, I have lost my mind with Joy 
    Banna ra mukh dekhan sahelyo mil aayo 
    To see his face, I came with all my friends (women folk) 
    Gaavan lagi geet, baanwari bhai mai to 
    I started Singing this song..For my love has driven me mad 
    Mangal din aaj 
    Such an Auspicious beautiful day
