Colour Me Spring

Thodisi dhuul meri dharti ki mere watan ki
Thodisi Khushbuu baurai se mast pavan ki
Thodisi dhondhane waali dhak-dhak dhak-dhak dhak-dhak saansein
Jin mein ho junoon junoon voh boonde laal lahuu ki
Yeh sab tuu mila mila le phir rang tuu khila khila le - 2
Aur mohe tuu rang de basanti yaara!

Putting it very loosely, without the passion of what the Punj-Hindi can convey
A little soil from the land, my land, my country - the love of motherland
Some of the odours wafting through my land, the wild wind - the wind of change
The fiery breath and untamed wild beating of the heart - of youth, anger
Add a little passion, in forms of bright red drops of blood - sacrifice, war
Stir them all together, they make a Heady hue
Now Colour me that colour, my frnd, Colour me that colour - of Independance, love, passion
The colour of Spring (multicoloured)! The colour of Rebellion (red)! The colour of Change! The colour of New Things - of a free India (Yellow/Orange)
Steep me into the colours of Patriotism, for India!

Captures the sentiment of the moment in the movie, and an awesome song standing alone too. Daler Mehendi has done a good job. :) and so has Prasoon Joshi.
Conveys passion, for the country, beauty of India, the exultancy of knowing the that you are doing something for your country...
I think its the best song of the OST. And a good song on India after long.

dring ring ling ling ding ding ling ling!

a brilliant song from ARR after a long time, and the rest are very good as well. I like the way you have extracted the context and the meaning from the song. :)

Regurgitations of my mind. Specific, Vague, Memorable, Forgettable, Thoughtless, In-depth.

More variegated than your dreams or colours off a crystal. More than I can pen down. What I can, you can read.
