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.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
