A BACHAA DANCER ( MALE DRESSED LIKE A FEMALE ) IN A KASHMIRI MARRIAGE


                                                                                

A BACHAA DANCER ( Male ) IN A KASHMIRI MARRIAGE

KASHMIRI MEHNDIRAAT SONGS HAVE ALSO GONE BOLLYWOOD WAY … POOR IN THOUGHT AND CONTENT .

Some days back I attended a Mehndiraat Function of a marriage ceremony wherein folk singers from Anantnaag were arranged by the host . Once the dinner was over , the singers sang some popular foot tapping songs so as to make guests Dance. As usual nowadays ,the foot tapping music overrides the lyrics. Where have the singers of GULREZ gone ? Where have the listeners of GULREZ gone ? I quote the new Mehndiraat songs..
1
Dupatta Goamayee aabuss ,
Dariyaavus Taraan Taraan ..

( My Dupatta slipped into the water
While I was crossing the river .)

2
Shroin Shroin Kar Tai Roannie Daamanus
Az Baaijaanus Chha Maaenziraat..

(Tinkle the bottoms of your Apparel
My brother is having his Mehndiraat today )

3
Maaenz haai Laaejikh Kamun Kamun
Maanzi Namum Mubarak..
( Every one has used Henna today
Bless these henna Dyed nails )

I remember the old songs upon which over ladies would also go sentimental , dance and perform Hikkat ..
1
Roshee valo Myaani Dilbaro
Poshan Bahaar Aav Yuur valo …

( Come my love this way !
The spring flowers are again around . )

2
Jaan Vandayo Yaari Jaanaanaai
Maaeji Maaleun Yeli Chhu Aasaanaai
Raaja Maaleun Teili Chhu Basaanaai
Maaej Panaai Chha Tasalaa Divanaai..
Jaan Vandayo Yaari Jaanaanaai………..

( This life for you ,My Love ! My friend !
When mothers are around  for their  daughters ,
The daughters feel regal .
For Mothers only know and console them in their pain..
This life for you ,My Love ! My friend )

Hiye Me Goadd Deut Baag Nervunaye
Sheyee Reit Draays Baazaar Kunaye
Samkhaan Samakhum Bub Panuniye
Loat Loat Huetmuss seer Baavuniye
Vyoth Vyoth Logamuss Oush Traavuniye
Sheerus Heutanum Athha Daaluniye
Dopanumm Koorie Ye Chhu Tchaaluniye
Gutchh Gutchh Koorie Gurr Panuniye
Maaleini Gaaeri Chhuna Kenh Laaruniye
Baayi Maaleun Guvv Baael Maaleuniye

( A Daughter who is having some   trouble  in her inlaws house comes to her father .   While relating her woes , the daughter  weeps inconsolably. The father Put his affectionate hand over her head. He then expresses his helplessness. He  advises her to go back to her in laws house . The conversation makes   them  sentimental. )
