Childhood Memories..

For no good reason I feel like writing this aww-ly innocent poem which we used to sing/hear back when we were little kids. Our naani (grandmom) used to sing alot of these poems to us..OLD GOOD DAYS... Some parts of the poem came back to my mind some days back when my sister was singing it to my niece. Got the full poem when i googled it. Its the story of an inquisitve kid who asks alot of questions that pop up in his mind and gets no answers from anywhere. Thought about translating it into english here but wont make much sense so here it is in roman urdu...

"Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi aur ammi ne samjhaai nahi...
mein kese meethi baat karru jabb me ne mithaai khaai nahi??
Aapi bhi pakati hein halwa, wo aakhir kyu halwaai nahi?
Bhayya ki mangni ho gai kal, kyu kal he dulhan mangwaai nahi?
Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi, aur ammi ne samjhai nahi...
Naani k miyaaan jab naana hein, daadi k miyaaan jab daada hein
Tabb aapi se mein ne poocha, baaji k miyaaan kia 'baaja' hein?
Woh hans hans kr youn kehney lageen, Aey bhai! nahi yeh baat nahi
Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi, aur ammi ne samjhai nahi...
Jab naya maheena aata hai, Bijli ka bill aa jata hai
Halaankey baadal bechara ye bijli muft banaata hai
Phir hum ne apnay ghar bijli, kyu baadal se lagwai nahi?
Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi, aur ammi ne samjhai nahi...
Garr billi shair ki khaala hai, phir hum ne usey kyu paala hai?
Kiya shair bohat nalaiq hai, khala ko maar nikala hai?
Ya jungle k raja k yaha, kiya milti doodh milai nahi?
Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi, aur ammi ne samjhai nahi...
Kiyoon lambey baal hein bhaaloo k, kiyoon uski tind karaai nahi?
Kia woh bhi ganda bacha hai, ya usk baap aur bhai nahi?
Yeh uska hairstyle hai, ya jungle me koi naai nahi?
Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi, aur ammi ne samjhai nahi...
Jo taarey jagmag krtey hn, kia unki chaachi taai nahi?
Ho ga rishta koi sooraj se? yeh baat humein batlaai nahi!
Per chanda kesa maamoo hai, jab ammi ka wo bhai nahi?
Yeh baat samajh me aai nahi, aur ammi ne samjhai nahi...
mein kese meethi baat karru jab me ne mithai khai nahi?"
