These songs are quite different from other genres like ritual songs, seasonal songs, etc. As these are songs about mundane life, they are the most authentic expression of a Haryanvi woman’s tryst with life as a young woman. Jakari folk songs mostly cover the most significant phase in the life of a young woman—from puberty to motherhood.
