Jacha Meri Sharad Pune Ka Chand (song from Bihar)

Jacha meri sharad pune ka chand
Mahalon ke neeche Dai khadi hai
Liye sab Jacha ka samaan
Jacha meri sharad…..
Mahalon ke neeche Saasu khadi hai
Liye sab charue ka samaan
Jacha meri sharad….
Mahalon ke neeche Jethani khadi hai
Liye laddu ka samaan
Jacha meri sharad…
Mahalon ke neeche Nanadi khadi hai
Liye sab sathiye ka samaan
Jacha meri sharad…
Mahalon ke neeche Devar khade hain
Liye sab bansi ka samaan
Jacha meri sharad….


My Jacha is bright/ripe as the full moon
Below the mahal, the Dai awaits
Holding all that the Jacha will need
My Jacha is bright as the full moon.

Below the mahal, the Saasu awaits
With sonth and ajwain for charua
My Jacha is bright as the full moon.

Below the mahal , Jethani awaits
Ready with all the ingredients for laddus
My Jacha is bright as the full moon.

Below the mahal Nanadi stands
Ready to make the Sathiyas
My Jacha is bright as the full moon.

Below the mahal, my Devar awaits
Ready to play the bansi
My Jacha is bright as the full moon.

 

Jacha Chad Gayee Re Attaria (from Bihar)

Jacha chad gayee re attaria kaise safri
Daiyan aaye naar kataye
Maange apna naek
Chaabi le gaye Sajanwa kaise safri
Jacha chad gayee re attaria kaise safri

Saas aawe palanga bichhaye
Maange apna naek
Dene ki bariyan yu kahe
Piya gaye pardes
Ghar main nahin hai rupya

Nanad Aawe charua chadawe
Maange apna naek
Dene ki bariyan yu kahe
Piya gaye pardes

Jethani aawe Sohar rakhawe
Maange apna naek
Dene ki bariyan yu kahe
Piya gaye pardes

Devar aawe diya jalawe
Maange apna naek
Dene ki bariyan yu kahe
Piya gaye pardes


Jacha has climbed up to the upper room, how shall we manage, what shall we do?

Dai has come, cut the cord, ask for their naek

My Sajanwa has taken away the keys, how will I manage, what shall I do?

Saas comes, makes the bed, asks for her naek

When it’s time for giving, Jacha says “ my Piya has gone to pardes ,
There is no money in the house”

Nanad comes, offers charua and asks for naek
When it’s time for giving Jacha says, “ my Piya has gone to pardes”

Jethani comes, keeps sohar, attends the birth and asks for her naek
When it’s time for giving Jacha says, “ my Piya has gone to pardes”

Devar comes, lights the diya and asks for his naek
When it’s time for giving, Jacha says, “ my Piya has gone to pardes”

 

Chhoti Si Nari, Nariyal Jaisa Paet (from Rajasthan)

Chhoti si nari, nariyal jaisa paet
Mera jasme se dukhe paet
Latua, Dai ko bula re

Tiny little woman, belly like a coconut.
My belly is aching
Latua, do go and call the Dai

Lalla Sela Rakho (Rajasthan)

Lalla sela rakho
Badh chhaye baith kar nahao
Jethani ke hath sheesh guthao
Durani se maang bharvao
Base bari ka pahno
Pahar odh kar mahal padharo
Jacha mahalon main jhagra macha
Jacha kahti lalla mera
Pati kahta lalla mera
Na tho tera na mera
Yeh Dadaji ka vansh badha


Here is warm water, dear,
Go bathe in the shade of the banyan tree.

Let Jethani plait your hair,
Devrani fill your maang,
Wear your wedding sari,
Dress up and come into the mahal,

In the Jacha’s room a big fight is brewing
Jacha says, lalla is mine,
Husband says, lalla is mine,
But he is neither yours nor mine,
He carries forward his Dadaji's lineage.
