Track Name: 1974 AD and various artists - Nepali Ho
Nepali Ho
Written by Mapan Bhusah

Whatever you do, whatever you say,
wherever you take me, my heart is Nepali
Whatever you do, whatever you say,
wherever you take me, my heart is Nepali

I am proud of my ancestors as to how
They bore the burden
Their story is written in history

Neither do they run away from battle,
nor do they sell themselves at any cost Steadfast in their own fate
believing in one’s own work
my heart, mind & soul is Nepali

Neither do they live in dependance
nor do they let others steal their rights

As shiny and bright are the mountains
clean is the heart
As vast as the sky-great are the thoughts
My heart, mind and soul is Nepali


Nepali Ho Rap by Aid Ray

From a state of mind gracefully filled with bliss & contentment All that I can try and to do is spread happiness. I can’t lie, so I show my thoughts & feelings
Wondering how many mothers have fulfilled their dreams
With the rays of hope on my face I’m delighted,
Survival makes me want to venture out more
Searching for the light of the SUN
I choose to live this life where, proud farmer is sowing his seed,

Praising stone god from the streets
Readily almost everything is available here
As it touches from within it flows
With fire and ashes on the river; the side of the grave
It hurts sometimes; call it bad luck if you might
Never did we celebrate too much when we won,
Nor were we devastated with the loses,
4 casts with 36 divisions, we support each other at any cost man!
Track Name: Subani Moktan - Mero Maya
MERO MAYA (MY LOVE)
Subani Moktan

I’ve lost myself somewhere in you
And I’m waiting for you
A life without you is incomplete

I’ve given all my love to you, you are my love
I’ve dedicated all my life to you, you are my love
Through all the obstacles that we face, you’re still the one
My love

Why aren’t you here with me right now?
Come and take my hand
Why don’t you come be with me in my life?
Don’t be just a dream
You’re all I need for me to get through this life

I’ve given all my love to you, you are my love
Through all the obstacles that we face, you’re still the one
I’ve dedicated all my life to you, you are my love
You are the heartbeat in my heart
My love…
