KAHE KO BYAHI BIDESH: Songs Of Marriage From The Gangetic Plains
KAHE KO BYAHI BIDESH: Songs Of Marriage From The Gangetic Plains
Description
From the Back of the Book:

The twenty-first century may have dawned but a wedding in the family is today as much as it was centuries ago. An occasion for joy celebration- and song. In Hindu families of UP and Bihar. There is a song for every occasion. Starting with an invocation to devi, the mother goddess, to bless the forthcoming nuptials, to vidai, songs of farewell as the bride leaves her father's home.

This treasure trove of songs representing an intangible heritage that is in serious danger of being lost to succeeding generations has been reproduced here for the first time in the original devanagiri script with an English translation by Shakuntala Varma,as she takes the reader through each step of a traditional wedding in the gangetic plains. There are songs to introduce the Banna (groom) and Banni (bride), songs for the Sehra or ceremony of the flower veil. Songs for the ghori or mare, and songs for Kanya Daan, the giving away of the bride. Songs mark the Saptpadi, the seven rounds of the fire the Suhag Raat or wedding night, and beyond- to the birth of the first born. The lilting songs of Sohar.

This is a book to cherish for it takes us back to our roots and preserve for future generations our rich cultural and social heritage which, if we are not careful, we may lose forever.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
