Please consider it as a Retro track and not a song designed by Hycinth.

Language – Brajawali.

Meaning of the song*
Quit your slumber Kamalapati, wake up, it’s dawn
Rise Govinda, let me behold your moonlike face
The eastern horizon is softly glowing alive
Sunlight emerges piercing the fading darkness
The lotus blooms with bees hovering around
The curd-churning women of Braja sing your paeans
Dama and Sudama keep calling you aloud
Look there, even Balarama has woken up and arrived
Nanda has gone to the pen, the drovers for the tending
Surabhi needs the grazing-ground, wake up Gopal
Get ready with cream and butter, the cane and the flute
The calf has to be untethered, the cow moos
Madhava exclaims, “What devotion has bestowed you, Mother
With the Lord of the Three Worlds as your protector!”

Maa-e-Ri - a lyrical conversation with Mother Nature.
Tejore Komolapoti.

Bhakti or Vaishnav movement in India gave birth to a new genre of religious poems and songs in 14th - 16th century. The same trend was brought to Assam by Srimanta Sankardeva and later his disciple Srimanta Madhabdev in the form of 'Borgeet'. Almost all Borgeets were written in the Brajavali Language. Both the Mahapurusha accepted this language as the base of their bhakti movement. Apart of Assamese influence, Bjravali has influnce of Sankskrit, Maithili, etc languages popular in other parts of India during the Bhakti movement.  This particular borgeet says-Yashoda, mother of Krishna was awakening him as it was dawn and she wanted to see her child’s (Krishna’s) beautiful face. She says that Dama & Sudama (krishna’s friends) were calling him (Krishna) & elder brother Balram also has arrived. So Krishna should also wake up to lead the cow boys to cow the surabhi (cow).
