About The DVD

In 1935 Rasoolan Bai the well known singer from Varanasi, India, recorded for the gramophone a thumri that she would never sing again –Lagat jobanwa ma chot, phool gendwa na maar (My breasts are wounded, don’t throw flowers at me). A variation of her more famous bhairavi thumri –Lagat karejwa ma chot, phool gendwa na maar (My heart is wounded, don’t throw flowers at me). A variation of her more famous bhairavi thumri –Lagat karejwa ma chot, phool gendwa na maar (My heart is wounded, don’t throw flowers at me), the 1935 recoding, never to be repeated, faded from public memory and eventually got lost.

More than seventy years later the film travels through Varanasi, Lucknow and Muzzafarpur in Bihar to search for the forgotten thumri. This journey opens a Pandora’s box of life stories, memories, half remembered songs and histories that for long have been banished into oblivion. It brings the film face to face with the enigmatic figure of the tawaif, courtesan, bai ji and the contested terrain of her art practice and lifestyle. To understand the past and present of the tawaif the film must unravel the significant transitions that took place in late 19th and early 20th century around the control, censorship and moral policing of female sexualities and cultural expression.

Thank you very much! My grandpa received the book today and the smile you put on his face was priceless. He has been trying to order this book from other companies for months now.
