A sublime classical song sung by a master:
JAgu mai sAri rainA balamA
RasiyA mana lAge nA morA
Bahu taramALu sotana gharavA
PiyA gharavA lagAvo
All night long, beloved, I lie awake
O sweet, my mind is in a restless throb
Much oppressed in this house, a stranger all alone
Love, make it feel like home again
