Jhoolan song from Vrindavan by Malini Awasthi, झूला धीरे से झुलावो बनवारी, अरे सांवरिया

झूला धीरे से झुलावो बनवारी, अरे सांवरिया|

झूला झूलत मोरा जियरा डरत है,

लचके कदमिया की डारी, अरे सांवरिया|

अगल बगल दुई सखियां झूलत हैं,

बीच में झूलें राधा प्यारी, अरे सांवरिया|

This beautiful folk song from Vrindavan, thousands of years old, mentions the Kadam tree which was once in abundance in Vraj. The swing mentioned in this song is on a Kadam tree, which in the rainy season is laden with round, deep yellow ball like flowers. The fruit is eaten. It was also a natural ball used for playing ball games by Krishna and friends.

This big shady tree with large leaves and millions of yellow golden balls is a pretty sight by itself on Indian roads again, thanks to the forest department’s tree planting drive in recent years.

Barase badariya saavan ki – Meera bhajan

This Meera bhajan is sung by Gayatri and Muthuswamy Bharadwaj in Raga Malhar.

बरसे बदरिया सावन की…

सावन की, मनभावन की ।

सावन में उमग्यो मेरो मनवा, भनक सुनी हरि आवन की ।

बरसे बदरिया सावन की…

…कुन्जन में बरसे, शीतल पवन सुहावन की ।

बरसे बदरिया सावन की…

मीरा के प्रभु गिरिधर नागर, आनन्द मंगल गावन की ।

बरसे बदरिया सावन की…

सावन की, मनभावन की ।

बरसे बदरिया सावन की…

Saavan jhoolan song, Jhoole re jhoole Radhe Kadam ki daal

This is a jhoolan bhajan (rain song) from Vrindavan. Radhe and Krishna are celebrating rains in Vrindavan, swinging and singing… A rainbow decorates the sky, raindrops are falling…

Saavan song jhoole re jhoole radhe kadamb ki daal, jhoola jhulaave dekho nandkumaar

jhoole re jhoole raadhe kadamb ki daal,
jhoolaa jhulaave dekho nandkumaar...

ghir ghir dekho saavan aayaa,
indradhanush ne bhavan sajaayaa
barase gagan mei barakhaa bahaar,
jhoolaa jhulaave dekho nandkumaar...

raadhe-krishna ne peng badhaaye,
chunari havaa mei lehar leharaaye,
darshan kare dekho saaraa sansaar.
jhoolaa jhulaave dekho nandkumaar...

raadhe krishna ki leelaa hai nyaaree,
balihaaree jaaye ham kunjabihaaree,
chalo raadhaa raanee ki nazare utaar,
jhoolaa jhulaave dekho nandakumaar...
