Charkhi Dadri.
Everything is changing with modernity. Earlier, Kauthali items used to come in bags, whereas now it doesn’t look like that. At the beginning of the first Sawan, women used to start singing songs like Meethi To Kar Dairi Maa Ya Kauthali, Lake Jaani Bahan Kai… and used to sway with great fervour. But that’s not the case now. Sawan’s songs and swings are just gone. That is, that of the old women resident in Rawaldhi. A dialogue was organized on behalf of Amar Ujala under Aparajita about the changes in the old and now Sawan in Rawaldhi. In this, women over 60 participated and shared their experiences of the previous Sawan. Here is a report from the dialogue program…
– Traditions changed with time, sugar, mercury and Kasar disappeared from Kauthali
In modern times, the way of celebrating the month of Sawan has changed. Changes are also being observed at customs today. People must not forget their culture. There used to be an uproar as soon as the Sawan started, but now there is neither the Sawan songs nor the swings of those women.
Kitabo Devi, 60 years old
Now Sawan songs are not sung like before, nor is there any interest among the people. The changes that have come with modernity have faded the desire to celebrate the party. Now when Sawan comes and goes, I don’t even know. Whereas, as soon as the first Sawan began, the echo of the songs began to be heard.
Jadai Devi, 61 years old
The vegetation of Sawan is unique and different, but like the old days, there is no joy for the Sawan festival. The old traditions and customs no longer exist. The way religious holidays are celebrated has also changed today. Today, only swings with trees are missing. Kauthali is no longer interested.
Kamala Devi, 62 years old
Earlier, songs were sung throughout the month of Sawan. There was reconciliation between them. People used to help each other at work. Teej festival has been limited to old memories only. The younger generation is withdrawing from the Haryanvi culture. We must never forget our culture.
Kamala, 61 years old
Earlier, Kauthali used to come in kattas. In which there were other dishes like sugar, mercury, suhali, kasar, sweet dough balls and dates, but today these things have disappeared from Kauthali. Nowadays sweets, chocolates and ice creams come to Kauthali. Earlier women loved Sawan and waited.
Gindodi Devi, 65 years old
There is nothing like it used to be in Sawan. Before, children and women made swings in every house and square, but now only a few swings are seen. He has not been happy with women. The matter of the earlier Kauthli was different. In my eyes, my name is Sawan now.
