Resham Firiri, the most popular Nepali folk song

Resham Firiri, 30-Aug-2011, Pokhara, Nepal. While having dinner in Hungry Eye restaurant, unexpectedly we were invited to sit indoors. There was music and dancing performance from 7-9pm every night. Then it came out my favorite Nepali folk song - Resham Firiri. So I videoed it (video quality not very good though). Resham Firiri is the most popular Nepali folk song. Trekkers love to sing it while trekking up and down among Himalayan mountains. Some also say Resham Firiri is a love song. I have to admit that I love Nepalis. Nepalis are honest people. They are celebration/party people, lots of singing and dancing in daily life. They are friendly. They are also tough as being mountain people. There is some kind of spirit in Nepalis, and I guess that might be from being mountain people. On the trek you might hear this version of Resham Firiri: Resham Firiri Resham Firiri I am a donkey, you are a monkey Resham Firiri Resham Firiri Resham Firiri Sometimes trekking, sometimes rafting Resham Firiri Resham Firiri Resham Firiri Sometimes drinking, sometimes sinking Resham Firiri (http://flickering-flame.blogspot.com/) The brief meaning of common version of Resham Firiri: My heart is fluttering like a silk Shall I fly to the hill top like silk flying in the wind? Oh my god, a baby calf is at the hill top! I could not leave it there, let us go together. My home is so beautiful; look to the hills. People I love are on the hilltop. I can not leave them as they are my family. So let us all go together to the hilltop. Let us stay together and not leave our dear loved ones.
