This is one of my favourite folk-songs…Have uploaded it earlier in 2009 too, re-uploading it today to wish everyone A Very Happy Teej….From left to right are My Bhabhi, Mataji, Mummy and me…all of us always sing these songs every year at home to celebrate Saawan and Teej…This time I decided to record and upload the team-effort 🙂 Also posting the lyrics below which I have tried to translate in English to the best of my ability…….

Galin galin Manra phirey-2
….The Bangle-seller wanders from street to street
Ari Bibi, Manra ko leyna bulwaaye
….O sister, please call the bangle-seller
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Kaun disa se Manra aayee hai?-2
…. From which direction the bangle-seller has come?
Aur kaun disa ko Manra jaaye?
…..And to which direction does the bangle-seller go?
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Poorab disa se Manra aayee hai-2
….The bangle-seller comes from the East direction
Aur Paschchim disa ko Manra jaaye
…..And the bangle-seller goes in the West direction
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Hari re Jingali re Manra naa pehrun-2
….O bangle-seller, I will not wear green Jingali (A special collection of bangles)
Are manra, hare mere Rajaji ke baag, Maharajaji ke baag
….O bangle-seller, because my King of King’s( loved one’s) gardens are green
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Kaali re Jingali re Manra naa pehrun-2
….O bangle-seller, I will not wear black Jingali (A special collection of bangles)
Are Manra, kale mere Rajaji ke baal Maharajaji ke baal
….O bangle-seller, black are my King of King’s(Loved one’s) hair
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Laal re Jingali re Manra naa pehrun- 2
….O bangle-seller, I will not wear red Jingali (A special collection of bangles)
Are Manra, Laal mere Rajaji ke honth , Maharajaji ke honth
….O bangle-seller, red are my King of King’s(loved one’s) lips
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Peeli re Jingali re Manra naa pehrun-2
….O bangle-seller, I will not wear yellow Jingali ( A special collection of bangles)
Are Manra, peele mere Rajaji ke mehel, Maharajaji ke mehel
….O bangle-seller, yellow are my King of King’s palaces
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Neeli re Jingali re Manra naa pehrun-2
…..O bangle-seller, I will not wear blue Jingali ( A special collection of bangles)
Are Manra, neele mere Rajaji ke Gudhal, Maharajaji ke gudhal
…..O bangle-seller, blue are my King of King’s (Loved one’s) horses
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Shwet re Jingali re Manra naa pehrun-2
….O bangle-seller, I will not wear white Jingali ( A special collection of bangles)
Are Manra, shwet mere Rajaji ke vastra, Maharajaji ke vastra
….O bangle-seller, white are my King of King’s(loved one’s) clothes
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
Aisi Jingali re Manra tu pehraa-2
….O bangle-seller, give me such a Jingali ( A special collection of bangles) to wear
Jisse jag saara jag-mag hoye
….Which makes the whole world shine
Choora to meri jaan, Choora to haathi-daant ka
….Choora( A large-sized broad bangle) made from ivory is my life
