We are assisting Asst. Prof. Devender Kumar (Deptt. of English, Faculty of Arts at Banaras Hindu Unievrsity) in creating a documentary about Jakari folk songs from Haryana.  Jakari comprises the songs about profane and routine life matters like the daily bickering between the persona on the one hand and her mother- and sister-in-law on the other, an issue of discordant between wife and husband, farewell songs, any incident that affects the moral and ethical premises of the community, etc. the importance of the jakaris can be gauged from the fact that they are the invariable part of almost all performances by Hariani peasant women.
