RadhaKhandi Nach-Gan: Garhwali Folk Dance –Song of Love Rapture with Spiritual Senses


RadhaKhandi  Nach-Gan:  Garhwali Folk Dance –Song  of Love Rapture with Spiritual Senses

(Garhwali Folk Dance-Song, Traditional Dance-Songs of Uttarakhand, Himalayan, Indian Folk Dance-Songs)  

                                  Bhishm Kukreti
                          Radhakhnadi, a Garhwali dance-song is a song and dance of love of rapture.  The base of songs and dances are the love between Radha and Krishna, between Rukmani and Krishna and Chandravali and Krishna . The love of Radha-Krishna had been the sign of high standard without any sin, without any desire for body for years. The love between Rukmani and Krishna had been the sign of a pure love between husband and wife and definitely, there is the question of possessiveness of wife for her husband.   The dance-songs are based on the above two love stories which, have been there in Indian scenes for centuries.
           Badi-Badan and Mirasi-Mirasan (the professional dancing-singing classes) perform these Garhwali folk dance-songs.    Usually,  Radhkhandi folk dance-song  is performed in spring season.
                The Bad0-Badan or Mirasi-Mirasan use the folk music instruments dholki  (drum) and sarangi  (string instrument)  for performing Radhakhandi folk dance-songs.
             Before starting the dance-song, the people including dance-song performers worship lord Krishna, Radha and Rukmani.  The dance is free in dancing and is certainly entertaining and ritual too.
     The songs for Radhakhandi are always in poetic dialogue system. The dialogues are between Krishna and Radha, between Rrukmani and Krishna and between Chandravali and Krishna.
   The dances are of varied nature and are with high drama of eternal love between Krishna and his lovers as Radha, Rukmani or Chandravali.  Many times Krishna comes in female form to tease Radha, Rukmani or Chandravali.  The forms of love by Krishna are exhibited in many ways and means while dancers are performing dances.
 In old age, the Mirasi-Mirasan or Badi-badan used to entertain the Kings, ministers and Thokdars of Garhwal by Radhakhandi dance-song.  The dancers perform with dramatic ways that is performance by eyes, feet, body and hands.
