Performing a folk dance all focussed
In brilliant local silk costumes
With traditional prints of gay hues
And embellishments having regional designs,
These traditional folks display jubilance
With head bowed in all reverence.
Adorned with makeup and jewellery, mainly silver pieces,
Their hair is tied into a bun like an Indian temple spire
With moon shaped crest of white flowers.
Their earrings, dangling, enhancing cajoled eyes,
The wrists adorned with bangles or flowers,
With the neck laces forming loops, all adorn further.
These enthusiasts traditionally
Display their art devotedly, and gracefully.
The anklets are worn to add rhythm,
Nay to symphoniously produce enthusiasm
To each and every special move they make,
To interpret the musical lyric, they undertake.
Further brilliance to the dance comes magically
With the palms and soles covered with red dye artistically
No less colourful are males performers’ attires
With turban on the head in striking colours,
Upon which are tucked flowers
With a wide belt on the waist of the top looking smart.
With the mood of classical Indian music
Interpreted by the dancers ecstatic,
The merry folks display their arts during folksy celebrations,
In the well-intentioned bid to preserve the rich cultures.
