With the aim of indulging our music loving readers, we presented The Lyric Bee: Name That Song and seeing the overwhelming responses that our previous editions have been receiving, we are back with yet another edition, only for your entertainment. BollyCurry has now decided to make this a permanent fixture in our monthly musical lineup. So without any further adieu, here's presenting to you August's Independence Special to quench your thirst for music lyrics. Hurry up with your thinking cap and let the guessing begin!

For our first time readers, the title speaks for itself. The Lyric Bee: Name That Song is about testing your knowledge and speedy recognition of various Bollywood songs translations. No, don't get too excited just yet, there's always a catch! Listed below are a few lines of three different Bollywood numbers translated into English. Your task is to translate these lines into their original Hindi format, and tell us which song the lyrics belong to. Piece of cake, right? Then let's get to it!

This edition is our tribute to the motherland country, India, as we celebrate the 68th year of Independence on the 15th August, 2014.

Please Note: It is important to first translate the lines and then name the song in order for your answers to be correct.

First Song
"...the fields of wheat, the verdant town square,
the Orcher climbers, the twisting vines, the rocking swings,
the swaying flowers, the bursting blossom, and lanes of town all ask us.
when will you come back?..."

Second Song
"Do something, with every part of you,
Do something,
Do something, enough of that big talk, now do something,
Take a stand, either swim or die..."

Third Song
"As if you had been showered by life's riches and happiness,
But, you are so far away from home,
Do come back now, you old fool,
To this very place where people will consider you as one of their own..."


Before leaving, here are the answers to the songs in the previous edition of  The Lyric Bee: Name That Song!

1. "Teri Galiyaan" - Ek Villain (2014)
2. "Ishq Bullava" - Hasee Toh Phasee (2014)
3. "Samjhawan" - Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya (2014)


Congratulations to all those who guessed the songs correctly!

So what are you waiting for? Want to prove it all over again that no one can beat your knowledge of Bollywood songs? Then go ahead and drop your answers in the comments below. The answers to this week's songs will be revealed in our next edition of The Lyric Bee: Name That Song.
