Nimoli refers to the fruit of the ‘Neem’ tree. Originally passed down as a traditional folk poem, Nimoli talks about love as a bittersweet relationship, like the ‘Neem’ fruit. This composition by Dhruv is path-breaking in many ways, both musically and lyrically. While Ila Arun brings a sense of grandeur with her uniquely rustic vocals, they are offset by a sublime rap performance by MC Bobkat. Fusing these opposites along with Rajasthani Folk and Arabian melodies is producer Dhruv Ghanekar on Coke Studio@MTV S4!

Lyrics:
Ho nimri nimoli
Ho nimri nimoli re
khave toh mama, khave toh mama
khara ro guthko, aave re

aji nimri nimoli, haasa nimri nimoli re
khave toh mama, khave toh mama, khar ro re guthko aave re

maya re re lobi ar r r ra
shoukeen jivdo ar r r ra
maya re re lobi avloo thori aave re

ho do din ri
aaji do din ri
zindagani re mama
zindagani re mama
umar ri badnami re

maya re re lobi, ar r r ra
shoukeen jivdo, ar r r ra
maya re re lobi avloo thori aave re

Hold up, hold up
Just hear me out yo
Now gimme just a one minute let me figure it out
nimoli or lemonade
whats that all about
got me wondering if I could be loosing my mind
coz everytime I think about it
I be hitting rewind
lets take it one step at a time with my rhyme
I am wearing a suit but your talking about a fruit,?
I'm trying to communicate but you don’t give a hoot
kinda reminds me why everything is moot
Stop getting philosophical , don’t give me that rhetorical
just give it to me straight coz I don’t need that psychological
nimoli is bitter with a little bit of sweet
but you'll have to tone it down if you wanna meet


arey mariyo di mat jaane re mama
mat jaane re mama , bhoot ho lag javul
o mariyo di mat jaane re mama
bhoot ho lag javul

maya re re lobi, ar r r ra
shoukeen jivdo, ar r r ra
maya re re lobi avloo thori aave re

he thare karaniyo mama
gharra bairi kinare

maya re re lobi, ar r r ra
shoukeen jivdo, ar r r ra
maya re re lobi avloo thori aave re

ari nimri nimoli, aji nimri nimoli re
khavetre mama, khavetre mama, kharro re guthko aave re

never understand why you choose nimoli
but I kinda like that it is only me
what is meant to be will always be
even after all if its only nimoli

aji nimri nimoli re, khave tohre mama khave toh re mama, khave gutko aave re

Translation:
Your love is like the fruit of the Neem tree
Bittersweet
Every time I bite into it, it leaves a bittersweet taste in my mouth and I'm reminded of you

You who are fond of all the good things in life, you left me and went
in search for bigger, better things and I'm left here alone thinking of you

This life we lost, but for today, is going by in a flash
But the disgrace that love has got me will last a lifetime

You who are fond of all the good things in life
you left me and went in search for bigger, better things and I'm left here alone thinking of you

Don't consider me to be dead, because even in that I will follow you like a ghost
that's how much I love you
I want to be with you
You've heard a lot of bad things about me all this while only for your love
You who are fond of all the good things in life
you left me and went in search for bigger, better things and I'm left here alone thinking of you

because of you every one dislikes me
You who are fond of all the good things in life you left me and went in search for bigger better things and I'm left here alone thinking of you

Your love is like the fruit of the Neem tree
Bittersweet
Every time I bite into it, it leaves a bitter sweet taste in my mouth and I'm reminded of you
