The mischief-maker by my side
Keeps me busy the whole day..
And often I regret having no time left for myself.
No answer do I have for his flow of questions;
Thus, he defeats me.
Running all over the house,
Makes noise, breaks things
And comes and hugs me
So that I do not scold him!
For all the trouble, and all the worry
I am glad; because my house
Has at last become
Thanks to my mischief-maker.
Yashoda's mischief-maker has sent my one to me;
To fill my life with joy.
Hence, in my little one's hug and his laughter
I feel Yashodanandan's healing touch,
And can hear the flute once more.
