  • This book is a collection of songs that are traditionally performed in the Mithila region of Nepal. They signify the joining of two families and have been created by the womenfolk of this region. It may be said that no marriage is complete without them. Some may appear, to those not accustomed to the life style of the people of Mithila, as crude or bordering on the obscene. But in fact these raucous lyrics add colour and life to the marriage ceremonies, Sung by the womenfolk they provide an insight into the way of life and beliefs of the people.
